Years ago the monastery gave Deva and Amala Seyon a small sacred bush Parijatham, commonly called Coral Jasmine. It grew and is blooming wildly! He sent a photo today along with his poem on it: #
A tiny seed passed along . . .
Potential vast, or dried and gone
Thy fate does lie in loving hands
Or left to wilt by roaring time…
But if thy will to live and grow
Thy bounty fresh your grace I know . . .
