Today is the birthday of Sri Sita Devi, the consort and
goddess of Ram. Knowing this, I received
an extra inward boost as I have so much reverence towards such a loyal
personality as Sita. Her devotion is
unswerving, endless, a clear reflection of the soul in the eternal world. I guess that’s one of the reasons why I
relish directing and producing the plays from the epics like the Ramayan. It is, from this great book, that I learn to
admire such extraordinary people – mortals, celestials and avatars, who carry such a high demeanour of character. Because of the productions I feel a growing
closeness towards the personalities who demonstrate inspirational
While passing the morning hours still in DC, the USA, I
did venture a short while with comrade, Dhruva, along a Potomac trail by big
mansions and finely maintained golf courses.
My second installment for the day for walking was in the
burbs of Brampton in a less green ravine, yet promising to be so in a matter of
days. It is spring, and even in this
more northern section of North America, you can see, smell, and feel the
incremental spring coming on.
My evening was blessed by converging with some of our
resident devotees from our downtown ashram. The place was in the home of Sanjaya, a
fairly newly married young man from our community. Here we chanted and feasted. I cannot keep in my memory the name of his
good wife. Every day I meet new folks,
names start stacking up, but I try. I
could not remember the name of their young one either, a pet dog actually. I do wish the couple well, and as for all
couples that are well situated with good communication abilities who are
principled and are financially okay, I bless that they will have lots of kids,
kids who will learn about Sita Devi.
May the Source be with you!
