Words of Wisdom - Srimad Bhagavatam

Life's desire should never be directed toward sense gratification. One should desire only a healthy life, or self-presevation, since a human being is meant for inquiry about the Aboslue Truth. Nothing else should be the goal of one's work.

----Srimad Bhagvatam 1.2.10

A green pathway leading to rice fields in Ubud, Bali.

After teaching in two Teacher's Training in Chiang Mai in Thailand in June and July 2011, a short break for self-introspection was much needed. And when we went to Ubud in Bali, I spent time walking around the small town visiting rice fields, chanting and praying, visiting temples, collecting flowers, listening to spiritual music and watching some warm and informative movies. This definitely helped me to re-tune with my internal self , gave me space to have some phases of contemplation and inner silence.

Much love and peace,
