Timeless Wisdom

In dwelling …… live close to the ground.

In thinking……. keep to the simple.

In conflict ……  be fair and generous.

In governing……  don’t try to control.

In work…… do what you enjoy.

In family life ….. be completely present.

Thursday Zen notes

One within all beads

A pious one with a hundred beads on your rosary,
or a drunkard in a tavern,

any gift you bring for the Beloved , will be accepted
as long as you come in longing.

It is this most secret pain,

this bleeding separation,
which will guide you to your Heart of Hearts.

by Abu-Said Abil-Kheir

English version by Vraje Abramian
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Love all.

Worship you forever

Do you know how beautiful you are?
I think not, my dear,
Yet Hafiz
Could set you upon a Stage
And worship you forever!

OWN ZERO by Sri Ram Singhal – my tribute


Dear Sri Ram Singhal ji,

Saadar shat shat Pranam  !

Sir, I have just started really deep diving into your inspiring work!

It is an honor, privilege and a ‘Divine’ blessing to have received a copy of your precious work of life time.

I had quickly browsed the day it arrived. I realized that it needs a meditative penance to absorb and reflect.

No wonder, the deep person of reflection that you are, it has taken you 40 years of such a penance to understand the layers and express about this magical creation of the Almighty, the “Atman” on earth, as my dear father says, about every human being, and what she really is and capable of and how the realisation of “owning zero” can really happen, and shared the nectar of such divine understanding of Atman.

I have just started my journey of ‘owning zero’ only now…

River of Tears


It’s three months to the river
That would carry me away
Two months to the dusty street
That I saw you on today.

It’s four Months to my lonely room
Where I will hide my face
And about half a mile to the downtown bar
That I ran from in disgrace.

Lord how long have I got to keep on running
Seven hours seven days or seven years?

All I know is since you’ve been gone
I feel like I’m drowning in a river,
Drowning in a river of tears.
Drowning in a river.
Feel like I’m drowning,
Drowning in a river.

In three more days, I’ll leave this town
And disappear without a trace.
A year from now, maybe settle down
Where no one knows my face.

I wish that I could hold you
One more time to ease the pain,
But my time’s run out and I got to go,
Got to run away again.

Still I catch myself thinking,
One day I’ll find my way back here.
You’ll save me from drowning,
Drowning in a river,
Drowning in a river of tears.
Drowning in a river.
Feels like I’m drowning,
Drowning in the river.

Lord, how long must this go on?
Drowning in a river,
Drowning in a river of tears.
