Sharabha – A One Minute Meditation

Posted by in Meditation Videos, Meditations

Sharabha The aphid marches softly into my meditation. Overlooked in the shadows of shivering violets and the rooting dog, This least of creatures is no mere avatar of Shiva.

Shimmering – A One Minute Meditation

Posted by in Meditation Videos, Meditations

. Change is the shimmering of form. The sun on a morning pond And the birth of a child. Nothing is essential And everything is just as real. The engine of life Grinds on in the shadow of entropy.
