That Which Is Not
I had arrived in this southern
to attend sangha with god-brothers and sisters. We will discuss dreams
and issues (hopefully, that will require no tissues). For the afternoon, it’s
downtime. The venue for our pow-wow, so to speak, will be located in a
community centre, and across from a courtyard is a majestic temple, newly
constructed, but fabulously retaining the features and integrity of a south
Indian masterpiece of devotion. It’s not my first time here, but at this point,
I’m seeing it all structurally complete. A banner affixed to the gate that
borders this spiritual fortress reads, “Coming Soon – Govinda’s – A
Vegan/Vegetarian Restaurant”. So that is the only thing remaining to be completed
by the temple’s side. Texas city
In my downtime I certainly engage my legs by walking the neighborhood. At sit down time I read an inspiring piece from the Gita’s intro, and here it is:
“Our very existence is in the atmosphere of non-existence. Actually, we are not meant to be threatened by non-existence. Our existence is eternal, but somehow or other, we are put into asat. Asat refers to that which does not exist. “
That is inspiring because it is put into a penetrating and succinct format. Thank you, author and guru, Srila Prabhupada.
May the Source be with you!
