Vasistha's Yoga ~ An ultimate masterpiece for the spiritual seekers!

This world-appearance is a confusion: even as the blueness of the sky is an optical illusion. I think it is better not to let the mind dwell on it, but to ignore it. (1.3.2)

Yatah Sarvani bhutani pratibhanti sthitani ca
Yatrai ‘vo  'pasamam yanti tasmai satyatmane namaha. (1)

Salutations to that reality in which all the elements, and all the animate and inanimate beings shine as if they have an independent existence, and in which they exist for a time and into which they merge.

Jnata jnanam tatha jneyam drasta darsana drsyabuh Karta hetuh kriya yasmat tasmai jnaptyatmane namaha. (2)

Salutations to that consciousness which is the source of apparently distinct threefold divisions of 
knower, knowledge and known.
Seer, sight and seen.
Doer, doing and deed.

Sphuranti sikara yasmad anandasysa ‘mbare ‘vanau 
Sarvesam jivanam tasmai brahmanandatmane namaha.(3)

Salutations to that bliss absolute (the ocean of bliss) which is the life of all beings whose happiness and unfoldment is derived from the shower of spray from that ocean of bliss.

Have a colorful day:)

"LOVE" by Alexandr Milov ~ One of the most powerful art pieces!

The sculpture of two adults after a disagreement with their back to each other. Yet the inner child in both of them simply wants to connect and love the other. Age has taught us much, but what we all can live without is Ego, Pride, Vanity and Grudges that prevent us from forgiving and moving ahead. The free spirit exhibited by children IS OUR TRUE NATURE!

'What if I fall?' Oh but my darling, What if you fly?”

“There is freedom waiting for you,
On the breezes of the sky,
And you ask 'What if I fall?'
Oh but my darling,
What if you fly?”

Dream catcher - Colorful world of stories!

Being a mother of two lovely daughters is one of the best things ever happened to me in my life. Their colorful and joyful stories, silly grins and giggles, fill my days with so much love and happiness.

I see them cracking silly jokes and laughing till their tummies hurt and wonder why and when in life we grow up and stop living like a child? We get stuck on things and cannot let go, we forget to forgive and start worrying too much. Why does growing up really needs leaving our innocent, beautiful heart and world behind. Even the jokes should make perfect sense:((

Dream Catcher is a joyful artwork from my daughter’s colorful world of stories! I feel blessed that I get to experience through my daughters what I left far behind in the life and even forgot how it felt.... to be a child!

To create your own masterpiece, take mundane materials from your life, run them through your imagination and let your personality shine through your work following these simple steps.

• Choose a design
• Draw pattern with pencil
• Outline with markers
• Fill in with crayons

Revisit your lives through your art work... it's so much fun:)) Thanks for stopping by and have a colorful day!!

Starfish - A thoughtful art project!

I am surrounded with friends and family who do not share the same passion of green and organic living as me. I tell you, it can be very difficult to be able to live your way as others are either trying to question your thinking or justifying their actions.

Often the question get raised, what can a single person do? Or what difference it will make?

It’s not an easy conversation especially when people have preconceived minds.

I feel so blessed that I am raising the kids who share my passion towards the happier and healthier world. Few days back my daughter got a lovely gift for me and she told me” mommy thanks for making us the throwers of starfish”. I wondered what it meant.

When I opened the gift, it was a beautiful story titled ‘Starfish’.

I got so touched with the story. It’s a beautiful read so I thought of sharing with you all.

A man saw a boy throwing starfish into the ocean, he asked the boy why he was doing this and the boy said, “The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them in, they’ll die.”

The man looked at the miles and miles of beach and saw starfish everywhere. “You just saved one starfish. You can never save them all. What difference will it make?”

The boy picked up another starfish and threw it in. He smiled and said, “It made a difference to that one.”

As we become throwers of starfish, we too have the power to change the world!

This month’s art project is also inspired by this story.

For this project what you will need

• Cardstock
• Pencil
• Scissors
• Glue
• Paints or markers
• Paintbrush

Draw starfish on cardstock. Cut using scissors. Dip paintbrush in paints and dab it gently on the paper for polka dot impressions. Write the story or print for the base. When dry, stick starfishes using glue to the base.

Be colorful, joyful and the change you wish to see in the world!
