This month brought some beautiful souls to the Aadheenam. One of our Hawaiian looking locals remarked to Amala. " I have lived on this island all my life and and can't believe I have been unknowingly living so close to this astounding place!"
Title: A beautiful insight into the garden
Today over breakfast Martin gave us some wisdom regarding a garden's function. He says that a garden occupies all your senses. You'll see elegant flower you had not seen the previous day, while also experiencing the fragrance of the sorrounding plants and earth along with the gentle breeze and the sounds of birds. All this destracts the talkative mind from thinking and telling its endless story, allowing one to be themselves, peaceful and whole.
