About Mirror of My Self

Self is God. Self is Guru. Self is Everything.

This blessed mirror reflects nothing but the Self of my Beloved Brother, my Highest Gurudeva and my Spiritual Father. Whatever you see, read and experience in this blog are only from Him, through me, for you, my dear visitor.

This slave is taking immense pleasure in welcoming you to experience my Self in all its glories!

Shree Rama Jayam.

A prisoner's wish

"Will you never go outside?"
Curious was my friend.

"Always, being outside is my problem"
Truthful was my answer.

Confused was he, hearing that.
Yearning was I, saying that.

Hi rugma... actually, i meant a person's longing to go deep within him/her SELF... to forget the outer world and just be within him/her SELF...I hope you get it :)

Many thanks for your comment and blessings! Am always happy to receive them both :)

*take care*

A beautiful poem depicting the yearning for true love or self-realization or the craving for God. Thanks and best wishes, Manivannan.

Hi Mani :)

Amazing poem! Short and sweet but with profound meaning.

If we can inside ourselves there will be peace and quiet. However, we are always out and as a result we are engulfed with various things which make our lives unbearable.

In the meanwhile, something came to my mind which has got nothing to do with your post.


Actually it was your enchanting photo which made me think these lines.

Many thanks for sharing.

Have a good day :)
