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 Hand Made & the GST

Is Hand made to be promoted? If it's in the decline in the last few centuries, shouldn't we accept it as a Natural Phenomenon and move forward with the new realities of Life?

The answer is,
Given the growing population and limited natural resources, there's no denial that we need a paradigm shift in our Journey of Life. Resilient and Self-reliant communities that can operate in a decentralized way, optimized through networking, enabled by today's technologies seem to be the Right way forward.

The environmental, social and economical aspects of 'Hand-made' puts it at the top of the list of Key factors required for building such sustainable and self-reliant communities. So, in our earnest desire to make the community around us resilient and sustainable, we promote Hand-made!

One of the ways of promoting Hand-made is through abolishing GST for it. The current classification of products/services under GST is very individualistic. For example, both a drama theatre …

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”
