From Swami Ritavan Bharati:
Guru Purnima Blessings from the Himalayan Sages:
“Sacred goblet where full moon flooding soma forms sahasrara atop your skull. There
the guru sprinkles inspired sweet streams of poetic speech, the voice of your soul,
as divine sound - mantra. These streams are beyond the touch of death; These are
the beautiful waves (sundarya-lahari), the waves of Infinity that touch the shores of
your mind. Shreem, unto that Guru-Shri, my prostrations, my homage, my surrender,
my ‘not mine’ is offered in love.”
Dear Fellow Initiate,
To shape the disciple's mind into a beautiful vessel for the divine name,
[This letter was published in the July 2018 edition of the AHYMSIN Newsletter.]
Dear Initiates and Students,
30 years ago [in 1988] we were reminded of the purpose of life. Each of us can reflect on how life has unfolded, karmic debts paid, dharma fulfilled. And now set the course with renewed intention, sankalpa, living each day with that awakened spirit, and finding joy in a life well-lived and well-loved.
Dear fellow wave in the Oceanward river of light,
The gravity pull of the earthly dense objects pulls all things downwards. The flame of spirit is pulled in the opposite direction by the Guru's upward pull. May you be pulled upwards like a flame. Be a flame of light to all thereafter.
