a young artist






I found this photo on a memory card from last year... 
the moment -  
I was speaking to Ramesh, principal of Narayani Vidyalaya. 
It was the end of the school day and children were waiting for tuk-tuks to pick them up to take them home. 
This young boy came up to show Ramesh his very wonderful drawing... full of gods... even the lion to the right has a third eye...

monk's verse from 12th century for 21st century living


This is a very wonderful and powerful affirmation written by monks in the 12th Century...
with a few added tweaks for today's living

I AM... 
INEXHAUSTIBLE ENERGY
IRRESISTIBLE DIVINE LOVE 
INVINCIBLE PROTECTION 
INDESTRUCTIBLE HEALTH 
INESCAPABLE PROSPERITY
ETERNAL ECSTASY AND LIGHT 
IMMEASURABLY GRATEFUL
NOW AND FOREVER 

use it + share it around..
I will be making posters of these drawings
 so more people can live with these precious thoughts
