Sea of Gratitude

Indore has kept me indoors πŸ™‚ I love the Top-&-Town brand of ice-creams here and they have an outlet in Palasia where I indulge in. Have not visited them in this visit and am looking forward to one of those late nights when we take the back door entry and he decorates my ice-cream with extra nuts πŸ™‚

Have been reasonably au fait with the entire organizing and beyond, then rush for the course in the evening which I look forward to. Giving direction to the exuberant energy that today’s youth exhibit and transforming them from the clutches of the outer world to re-discovering an entire new inner world is a humbling experience for a teacher. The grace of the master is ubiquitous, cutting the human bondages of caste, creed, nationality, colour and sex. As I have been teaching along with scores of new teachers everywhere, I marvel to listen to their experiences as it keeps me new and alive. Their experiences are so garden-fresh, unprocessed and ready to serve, which re-news my faith to rely on these minuscule miracles which are served daily, which one occasionally/conveniently ignores or takes it for granted forgetting the proteins they add in the magnanimity of everyday life.

The triple eclipse is one such time of life, when one has to awe at smaller fragments of creation and protect oneself with sadhana, seva and satsang everyday. Add an Om Namah Shivaya chanting to your daily dose of sadhana and you are shielded. Gape at the galaxy, marvel at mankind and its attributes, goggle at the greatness of the Guru and relish every moment to moment, drop by drop, forming a sea of gratitude within.

    Insightful posts and an amazing-like-anything collection of stories and pics, not to mention the ever-so-mouth-watering recipes and the eclectic essays on development. All in all, a wholesome read.

    Btw, the pic of eclipse was taken by someone called Bailoo Singh

    Bailoo goes on to mention that the only protection and shielding he needed from Great[n] Grand Daddy Sun was provided by a cheap solar filter which is commonly used by welders. Sad but true. How can Life be so so unromantic ? πŸ™

    Om Namah Shivaya πŸ™‚

    The best pic with a solar filter is at

    Jai Hind!
    Abhishek.
