chanting in the air

sound of water

a devotee taking bath


birds singing

fluently flying in the sky


obediently my gaze drawn into a vast view of Ganga



as a painting of the big hands turning into turmeric colour

my hands too turninig into turmeric colour


crossing of a boat

acrossing a wordly ocean

in silence


suddenly a laughter


Mother

It's You!

Today's lesson

OM


Vishwanath,

the Lord of Universe.....


Vishwanath was suffering from hunger......

universe was starving.....


He heard that in Kashi He would be nourished fully by Annapurna Maa......


She nourishes hunger....


if stomuch longs for aliments....

she nourishes it with aliments.....


if soul hungers for knowledge....

She satisfy your soul with knowledge......


If soul starves for love.....

She nourishes soul with Her love ....


So, the Vishwanath, the Lord of universe came to Kashi

He was nourished by Maa Annapurna in every way

and Kashi became His land, the Lord of universe, Shiva.....


Om Namah Shivaya





see beauty not in the substance...........

Posted on January 10, 2016 at 7:05 AM Comments comments (0)

here is an old lyric that says “the brushwood we gather and tie together, it makes a hut. Pull it apart, a field once again.” Such is a way of thinking in old Japan, one finds beauty not in the substance itself but in the weave of shadow, the light and the darkness, the one thing against another creates.

 

A noctural jewel which exudes its glow and colour in the dark loses its beauty in the light of day. Were it not the shadows, there would be no beauty.

 

 

-from Praising of Shadow (1933 - 34) by Junichiro tanizaki

talking to a Babaji.....

Posted on January 8, 2016 at 7:05 AM Comments comments (0)

a Babaji who was writing "Ram, Ram Ram......", repeatedly, a page after a page told me to wirte His name in red colour.

"with yellow or orange, you can write it also but not with black because black is more for worldly works" he said.

"But Maa Kali is black in colour"  said i.

"Oh, but if you go very close to her, She is not black" he said.



"Can i write "Maa" instead Ram?" i asked.

"Sure..... Maa comes first." he answered.
