A few cornerstones of my Journey back in life:

Kerala - Dec 09



 




Eco-Shop


Trissur is the cultural capital of Kerala. An Eco-Shop run by Anil, had the best collection of books on Nature, I've seen so far. The Masanobu Furokuoka's 'The road back to Nature' has already made some lasting impact on me within the first few pages. Have u seen Masanobu's dressing style? I like it. Out of love for Nature AND Relationships, I purchased gifts for everyone.
 In front of the Gnani


Since I was visiting a 'Swami' after many years, I wasn't sure how to behave myself. That new situation became the catalyst for many more new experiences to come. I witnessed and interacted in that soul party, quite effortlessly, along with my friends. The environment also looked quite familiar. RESPECT: It's a feeling that I've long forgotten and this Gnani helped me discover it, in its true sense.




Meeting people on the path:


I couldn't believe that Subash had actually spent nights in graveyard as part of his 'athmabodham' process. He looked well integrated with the society to do that. Having someone like Subash in one of his backyard guesthouses, Doctor (Venugopal) perhaps could have opened his mind more....

Shaji's innovative water tank and speaker system in his nursery gave a glimpse of his creative mind. Having come from a tribal family practicing medicine, he probably have wealth of information on plant kingdom.


Kalam is a painter who believes in OSHO and the moment. I wonder how he could sustain that slow wavelength in his daily life! As a whole, people in Kerala seem to have lot more time in their hand, smiles more while giving direction, indulge more in intellectual discussions & was resonating well with me.

Nellayampathy Permaculture farmland could be my next destination in Kerala!

The last Mantra of Rig Veda

The last Mantra of Rig Veda emphasizes the unity and harmony of entire humanity, 


“Samani vha aakutihi, samana hrudyani vha, samanam astu vo mano, yatha vha su saha asti.” 


“Let your aims be one, let your hearts be one, let your minds be one, and let your unity go from strength to strength”

Nurturing to Deserve

By Nurturing something, you earn the right to reap the benefits from it.

Nurturing a Plant, a Family or a Nation is all equally challenging and interesting. Choose the one that gives you Happiness today. 

Directional Relevance

Wanting Things is a form of Misery.
Happiness in Western Culture is about wanting something & getting it. But Craving is never ending. So, as long as we look at Western Culture as the model of Growth, our sufferings will persist. And to change our direction of Growth in today's globalized world is like steering a 40 feet truck for a U-turn.  It can happen when all beings including Humans can collectively work towards it!
Happy Ugadi 2017!
