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 Kite’s Song


Attached to the string

In your hands

I fly….


Breezy, stormy, calmer

Days pass by…

Rainy, sunny, snowy

Months roll by...


Ruffled, rumpled, roiled

Yet

I am safe…


I fear not

The heights I reach

I fear not

The depths I may fall


For, I am

In your hands...


The string is my breath

The string is my strength

The string is my life

The string is my only attachment


Cut it away

And I am dead.

....................................................................................................

Wish you all, my dear readers, a happy Vinayagar Chaturti!
