Idam Na Mama

I heard a story about Ramana Maharishi which goes like this: One of his disciples came to him one day and exclaimed that he saw God. Ramana Maharishi asked this disciple who was there before the God became visible, who was there after….It appears to me that the suggestion is to seek the observer within

Despite all invocations against the great illusions of life, I prefer the living in the thick of it all. Despite all cautions against susceptibility of human mind, I love its pleasures and pangs

Oru Thaarakaye Kaanumbol Athu Raavu Marakkum
Puthumazha Kaanke Varalcha Marakkum
Paalchiri Kandathu Mrithiye Marannu , Sukhiche Pokum

Words roughly translating to mean:
Forgets darkness of night in the beauty of even a lone star
Forgets droughts in the glory of rain
Forgets death on innocent smile of a child

Courtsey: Poet Sugathakumari

Mind defines, and defines subjectively. Mind presents the world through veil of definitions. Mind colors the observation of reality .

Beyond the veil, within me, is Sat-vic observer observing Rajas-vic do-er:

    Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for
    aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog
    soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting
    with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Many thanks!

      Thanks for reading and encouraging comments.

      Key to blogging is to be regular (I understand it improves ranking), and sticking to the topic.. also, keep it short and sweet as only a very few are voracous readers; most of people on net are casual readers and long posts discourage them. Keep post to a minimum of two paragraphs (shorter ones are better candidate for tweets) to a maximum of pull page.

      Choice of platform depends on the objective (if there is business objective, then you need to pick platforms that pay for visits/clicks made by user… for me it is just a place for my notes as a personal diary), efforts that you would put in to maintain and popularise
