Little Birdie Flower πŸ˜Š

Little Birdie Flower in grow bag of our terrace garden

Thanks dear Prashant (https://mytravelcsp.wordpress.com) for reminding me of this flower through your blog. Prashant has a beautiful travel blog. After reading his blog, I went up and found this plant still there in our terrace garden. Due to intense heat, small shrubs like this are drying, but luckily, this one sustained. It’s a wild plant. I don’t know it’s name. Now, I named it Little Birdie Flower plant πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‚πŸ˜œ

Just a breath Away

Home is here, just here

Breathe in gently and reach,

Reach into the heart

The home is here always

When the five senses drag us outward,

We just feel the home is far,

And to be reached by traveling a lot

Dear one, breathe and look within

See the rising and dissolution of mind in heart

Just like the waves arise in sea and dissolves back into it

Home is here, just here

And is just a breath away

We all Smiled

Beautiful darling moon

Beautiful darling sun

You both met today,

Smiled face to face

Filling me with joy and I smiled too

Sky, water, earth, wind and fire smiled with us

Stars though hiding in clouds too smiled 😊

I’m a Rabbit :P

Summer Salad

With summer hitting early, my rabbity nature felt to munch on salads. I love raw food, the colorful palette which can be made with it, healthy fibers it can add to diet, unlimited energy it provide me to go through the day, reducing heat of my body, etc. etc.

Okay dears, here I share with you the self discovered recipe of this beautiful and healthy salad.

Things you need:

Carrot – 1 medium

Celery stalks – 2

Salad cucumber/French cucumber/green zucchini – 1/2 piece

Red capsicum – 1/2 piece

Salt – a pinch

Method of Preparation:

Put vegetables in a bowl of water containing salt and 1/2 teaspoon turmeric for half hour and wash them. If you are using organic vegetables, you can skip this step. Peel off the carrot and cut it into small thin rounds. Chop the celery roughly. Chop salad cucumber and capsicum into bits. Add a pinch of salt for taste (You may skip salt if you like). Mix everything well and your beautiful summer salad is ready. Enjoy it fresh.

Celebrating Valentine’s Day With My Lord :)

In this occasion of Valentine’s day, I’m sharing with you all about my dearest sweet lord’s love through the words of Sri Ramanucharya and sweet voice of Srimati M. S. Subbalakshmi – Sriranga Gadyam. Each words of this is filled with sweetest devotion of Sri Ramanucharya to bhagavan. Whenever I hear and read this Gadyam, my body feel goosebumps and my eyes flow with tears of bliss embracing my dearest lord within my heart.

Dear Tongue

Oh dear tongue, talk and sing about lord

Taste the sweet nectar of bhakti

Lord’s name is the best medicine

Which cures the otherwise unending circle of birth and death

Oh dear tongue, talk about lord’s glory among folks

Doing which, you give heart the experience of limitless bliss

Oh dear tongue, talk and sing about lord

Gratitude to Body

Dear body, thank you for being with me

You are such a nice and loyal friend

Through light and dark days,

Through changes from birth,

You are still with me

Mindlessly, I have inflicted pain on you

Yet, you stood with me patiently

Love you dear body and sorry for the trouble

I will take time to relax and exercise to keep you healthy

I promise you dear, till I leave you,

I will care and use you mindfully

Thank you dear once again for being with me 😊

Lead by Breath

I reached there in an inhale

I reached there in an exhale

Being there in between inhalation and exhalation,

I realised I belong there and I am that

All others are just waves arising and dissolving in I

In rising up and in dissolution, I stay relaxed watching
