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
