“To keep the body in good health is a duty … otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear” - Buddha

It may not be exactly why monks do a lot of prostrations, but it is a side benefit

In Coimbatore

"Sir, nobody is using film cameras these days, it is all digital"

That day i was on the road and feeling excited to see strange lands

More Indians riding bikes

Tired but inspired

Go pony

Chopon Science

This heart is a wanderer looking for a space to rest
non-soul is a mystery created by it’s own quest
feelings are a well spring to drink and be refreshed
often carrying mixed blessings we can’t easily digest

Beauty blown by breezy passers by
turned towards then bent back into shadows
standing out but overlooked and I sighed as
the crisp fresh blossom faded and passed away

Drawing in a breath and holding it deep
the fields of manifestation bend back to light
Hunting love chases it away so silent i stay
Accepting kindness, giving space is a gifted insight

Secrets of the wandering heart stay safe
don’t waste a breath where silence gives sound
to tired lips and confused tongues in languages unknown
truth is not revealed or found behind another curtain

Sit now heart where-ever you are
leave the searching and wandering be
leave the hurting and aches and remember
soon you will be home
