A pair of birds have made their nest on a shelf compartment in our workshop area. We’d seen them coming and going, one blue and one brown, and today found on sitting in the nest. A few minutes later she (he?) was gone and three little chicks were begging us for food.
They must feel totally at home with the monks knowing that no harm will befall them. Why else would they nest here where there is often a huge amount of noise, banging on metal, welding and testing of machines
Jai Ganesa!!That is so wonderful.God Siva takes care of all his creations and that gives me greater faith that I will also be kept safe no matter where I find myself. These birds could not hope for a better place to be.Aum Aum
Dharma is religious patterns which when followed promote the wellbeing of the individual, the family and society. Patterns so that the soul matures and gets closer to God, closer to realizing the Divinity within. Dharma is: "The orderly fulfillment of an inherent nature or destiny," working on instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Destiny is fixed: Realization. Personal dharma, "your own perfect pattern in life", is different for the sannyasin and the householder.
