How can you be all this and more
so much, much more
You who are perfect, complete, whole
take me places i'd never dare go
Show me sights i'd be scared to explore
Sounds vaguely familiar clearly flow
their colors bathed in a golden white glow
You light up my life like none before
You hold me in warm embrace
and shower me with your grace
Your very name fills and thrills
and a fleeting, yet vivid, memory suffices
to bring you back to your rightful place
as the light in my eyes
and the smile on my face!
Infinite love and eternal gratitude
Aum Namah Sivaya!
Here are just a few uncommon photographs of Gurudeva found in our archives.
It's Thanksgiving Day, and we are feeling the Fullness of Everything, within and without. Gurudeva placed great stress on being thankful, feeling it a necessary spiritual milestone to reach. Here he speaks of how gratitude can help us better our karmas when things seem rough.
