In Search of Knowledge…

Solitude and Bhakti

Posted by Girish Krishnan on May 5, 2006

This blog was posted when i got a small chance to interact with the outside world – The internet cafe is like a magical corridor – like the ones which are described in He-Man and the masters of the universe!

I am infact enjoying a very calm lifestyle after the 1000 miles/hr ISB MBA marathon – this one is of extreme serenity and solitude. Deep within the natural tranquility of Kerala, my holy ashram (i mean house!) stands alone near a river stream. I am the descendant of a yogi and yogini – my parents who taught science and maths in the nearby gurukuls. Early morning i get up, pluck flowers for their pooja – the mantras soon echo in these corridors of peace!
The journeys to famous temples mark great importance in the life of these yogis and hence i get the chance to share the experience. Traditional lunches served in plantain leaves are a delight especially since they give u a chance to drink (or rather thru multiples licks of ur hand) kheer from the leaf. TV aversion is helping me read quite a lot – luckily newspaper is available in this part of the world!

The magical corridor is closing and i have to return to my ashram – more in the next interaction with the outside world – After all, everything is maya , right?

    Good to see you are enjoying the peace and quiet at home… guess its a good wind-down before work…

    It was good meeting you at orientation… Unfortunately Sec C did not turn in much of a performance in the sports events and hence, after a great start, we ended up a dismal 4th place in the showdown…

    Anyways… term is heating up… sounds like fun :P..

    Take care…
