One of our long time devotees wanted to honor Gurudeva's life and the Guru Chronicles (which he writes "is a masterpiece beyond compare") in some way after Mahasamadhi this year and sent us this little poem, (while at the same time "borrowing" the magnificent artwork in the Guru Chronicles). We thought we would share it with you. Jai Gurudeva! Beloved Guru to countless souls!

There are 29 official steps in the making of a bronze sculpture, and dozens of craftsmen. After Holly Young completed the almost-a-year-long wax sculpting, she made molds and sent them to Colorado.

Last night we had an incredible sunset, its radiant light only lasting a few minutes. Just like a flower, its impermanence adds to its beauty.
