Purple Haze

I am getting into an introspective mode. I know its never premature. And it helps sometimes.

IMG_0767 Just to be thankful to God for what we have. And not complain about what we have-not.

Every evening, I turn my worries to God. She is going to be up all night anyway, watching over us. Letting us get our eight-hours in peace.

IMG_0771 Today I light a Sōndhā Prodeep (evening lamp) and say a silent prayer. For God to be with my family and friends. Watch our every step. For I believe that Her greatest gifts are our unanswered prayers.

The optimistic in me believes that with this little light, I will find my inner shine.

IMG_0768IMG_0774 And yes, God I have realized your last name is not “Dammit”!

Hope you experience and like the serenity of this beautiful version of the Gāyatrī Mantra.

What a lovely, moving post. Thank you for this. I love that sentiment, that "she is going to be up all night anyway, watching over us." What a lovely thought. And yes, she will. :)

(That little red lamp is gooooorgeous, by the way).

The lamp is ever shining within us it is for us realize it..every yogi meditates to realize the supreme truth within. The treasure is within us n the mantra helps us to awaken this...
