Temptation of a sage (Vishwamitra?) by Apsara (Menaka?)

Stories abound of celestial nymphs, asparas, sent by Indra to tempt sages. The story of Vishwamitra and Menaka is from the Ramayana.

Deep inside we are perfect this very moment, and we have only to discover and live up to this perfection to be whole. Our energy and God's energy are the same, ever coming out of the void. We are all beautiful children of God.
