Honoring the Teacher

(If we pray enough, sometimes our prayers are answered ! So… I am reminded I wrote this one year ago – what a progress to see the Pandemic in the rear view mirror! Yes !  I am on the road ! Movement, the physical movements … feels good for the Wanderlusts in us:)

A pop-up from 8, or was it 9 years ago to get reminded – what an honor that was to just learn and absorb – in person from a legend himself ! It’s not online – it’s not from his books alone but wow in person!? What a thrill!

It’s just not the same so … really hope students get to resume their studies in person… in whatever discipline they choose to immerse themselves. Praying for that day and praying for this humble but highly knowledgeable and skilled Master Teacher’s health and safety so he may continue his precious teachings passed down from the great Sri T.Krishnamacharya himself.

Highly recommend any opportunity to learn from the older generations who provide that light and guide the way if they are giving enough to still teach. Lit! From Darkness to Light …

It takes energy love and dedication on their part – we owe it to ourselves to serve as the repository for what they are able and willing to pass on. There’s so much wisdom and knowledge they impart… as long as they are around, all is not lost.  Let’s stay grounded … the elders have gone through so much and so maybe they are taking things in stride…wars, gun violence, addictions … those that are man-made, and famine, earthquakes, tsunami, floods, typhoons … the Pandemic …those that are nature-based, they have overcome decades of challenges.  While we are feeling the ravages of this Pandemic and the emotional upheavals with and without the pandemic complications, they’ve lived it.  Turning to them, gives comfort as we keep Thinking, when will this end?  Like really, when?

I hear the words of wisdom – patience, perserverence, tenacity … in reverence to the master teachers who offer the knowledge in service. Gratitude 🙏

Rumi’s seeds – Gratitude

All from our gardens – we must sow our seeds on this shared earth. Rumi is a master at sowing the seeds … where flowers will bloom if one is willing to toil the soil to make it fertile … It’s work. It’s good. Namaste.

August 15th is actually my late father’s 命日”Meinichi” or a anniversary date of his passing. It’s also a day marking the End of War (our last “world war” – not the latest regional wars)

A side note: Super interesting site directed to Japanese Middle Schoolers but anyone can benefit is THIS:), where there is an article that it’s only in Japan August 15th is officially recognized as end of WWII and start of peacetime whereas rest of the world celebrates a slightly different date.
