A complaint letter with love to our father of nation~
Last night, I found it very hard to fall asleep as this poem for Gandhiji kept coming into my head. I promised that I will write it today. I did write it but I have missed the words that I have now forgotten. Here it is: बापू...

Beautiful! #buddha #love  
 
Yashodhara and Siddhartha

The infinite,
and a woman,
desolate, clueless  under the sky.
"I leave you a bunch of seven keys", he said,
"and one of them will open the sky".

And one day he returned, under a different garb and a different sky.
She still held in her hand the golden keys
which he gave her in the golden days

He was in the princely robes when he went
and when he came as beggar there was no lament.
The sky was empty, but it was closed;
She looked for an answer at him and the sky.
Clutching at the golden keys still in her hand
and at the end of her veil that was about to fly,
She fell at his feet, her eyes moist and her throat dry.
"You have come," she said, "I have no need for the key and the sky".
You will stay, not wander far;
your home is here in my heart.

"O Woman, what are you talking about?
I have no home under this sky.
I have to beg for forgiveness.
Throw away the keys nevertheless.
They are no longer needed to walk in the sky.
Walk on this earth, barefoot.
I had gone away, hoping to fly
I have come back with the knowledge, not of the flight-paths;
I have come back with knowledge of how it feels
to walk on the earth barefoot under the sky.

From human-doing to human-being is a glorious journey! Many miles are covered in no-step!
     Many years ago, when my oldest daughter was about 6 years old, we were driving to her new friend’s house for a play date.  Not long into our trip she asked how long it would take to get...

It is about time to have this difficult conversation. My friend, and my brother- I want to talk violence and rape.
Often the rape victim is blamed in such words as these: "She should not be outdoors at this time of the day." "What was she doing there?" "Did you know your assaulter before?" "Who were you with?" aka if you were with a male ...

I feel inspired to share some of the excerpts from one of my favorite books 'May I answer that?' by Swami Sivananda Saraswati ji.
QUESTION #149:   Life and death--which is more dreadful? ANSWER:         Life and death are both processes of gaining more and more fresh experiences in the progress of evolution tending towards the fruition of the wishes of ...

This happened last winter, dear friends, when researchers at BFU found a very strong correlation between frozen boogers and death. But friends this was such a sensational research that government decided to call it off as funny and muted any publicity or dissemination of this information.
Bleaksburg, VA.  Following reports of the area woman, who got frozen boogers during her stroll in single digit temperatures yesterday, researchers are now warning that frozen boogers are directly related to sure death. Virgin...

+Sushama Karnik Yes - For the ones who indeed get the satire, our preoccupation with death is indeed very scary.
