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!

A Wednesday


It was only on A Wednesday, years ago, my beloved brother experienced something Beyond the Ordinary. Something, Beyond the Mundane. And that! transformed His course of life, forever.

Recently, we shifted our house to a new place. Rumours has it that this is our 13th or 14th house. Well, (inside story, apart)in our new Home, we are surrounded by a lot of spaceunspoilt, green, wet, place!

And, know what, this slave, is all eager to grow a herbal garden around this present Home.

While he was all dreams about His Brindavan, one fine day, his Amma, as usual, went out for walking...and, unusually, returned with a few saplings from a bungalow(the one that appears in Superstar Rajinikanth's film-Thudikkum Karrangal). Since, the school, this slave studied, never taught him to plant saplings (may be, taught! but had miserably failed to make him learn so, all the blame goes to Coonoor, Stanes), he was waiting for someone to plant the saplings to where it belongs!

And, there comes Paanchaali akka(you're right, Shree Krsna's devotee in Mahabharatham), as our home-maid.

Amma gave her the saplings and asked her to plant them. Before that, I need to tell you something, my patient reader, about our Paanchaali akka. She does things only out of love! If someone commands or speaks impudently to her, whoever it may be, even if it's Barrack Obama, she would just walk away.

So, one fine day, this slave saw her planting the saplings into Mother Earth with her caring hands. And, as far as, he remembers, that day, too, was A Wednesday!

For folks, who are not aware of their spiritual aspect, and are only aware of the material world 'A Wednesday' may remind of that awe-inspiring Naseerudin Shah, starring movie. But, for this slave, like the disciples and meditators of Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev(He, too, attained enlightenment on A Wednesday), 'A Wednesday' would always remind his adorable brother his very own Gurudeva!

Just witness, my faithful reader, how gracefully, like my very own Gurudeva, the saplings planted by his Paanchaali akka, too, are budding, blossoming, and spreading their fragrance. Yeah, if you're awakened, you can smell the fragrance, too!
................................................

To my very own Flower!

T
hat was born on
A Sunday.....


.....and bloomed on,
A Wednesday!


His Love,
purer than the purest buds!


His Heart,
softer than the soft petals!


His Grace,
graceful than the gracious flowers!


His Character,
pristine than the pristine leaves!


His Manliness,
manlier than the manly sky!

His Compassion,
compassionate than the compassionable trees!

O Gurudeva!

How fortunate this slave is.
For, having born with You.
For, having grown with You.
For, having blossoming with You.

Lifetimes after Lifetimes.
Yugas after Yugas.
Always.
This slave wants to be...
Your beloved slave.

Grant me.

O Gurudeva!

For, that's what.
And,
that's all, this slave seeks!

Jai Shri Ram.

Flowers and spiritual quest are greatly intertwined.Some of the great Vaishnavaite saints spent their life time in tending flower gardens for making garlands for the God.Flowers please everyone but those grown with devotion are sure means to win His favour.
The pictures are extremely nice.
