AHAM: FOOD FOR THE SOUL

I think its time I write about one blogsite I love to visit more than any other in recent times. It is Swahilya's blog. It is a pity that not many people visit her site and enjoy her succint well thought out posts. Let me try my best to describe her blog site. She writes about anything and everything but with a spiritual bent of mind. I know that I have raised a few eyebrows here by calling a spiritual blog my favorite despite my strong inclination towards science. Every time I visit her blogsite I come out having learned something or the other. Many a times I have personally requested her to write on different topics and she obliged every single time. I will run out of superlatives if I try to describe her writing style. I request all of you visiting my site to also visit hers. I would like to include a sample post from her blogsite. I had requested her to write on "HARNESSING THE MIND" a few days back and this is what she wrote...
Harnessing ...the Mind
The Mind. Man. Manas. Manu. Manidan. Manushan. Manush. Manisha. Manishi. Mansi, Mana or even Manam Pochu! It's an ocean in which we live and die. Just as fish are born in water and die and are again born and die. Man is born in the ocean of the mind and the cycle continues...till he gets out of it into the quiet expanse of stillness.In Manikkavasagar's Tiruvasagam, now made famous by Ilaiaraja, there is a beautiful verse: Pullagi, Poondagi, Puzhuvagi, Maramagi, Palvirugangalagi, Paravaiyai, Pambagi...vallasurar agi, Munivarai, Devarai...ella pirappum pirandilaithen. more...

Robbie,

Can you hear Eswar now ? Request you to - PLS STOP POSTING IN ONE BIG BLOB.

Take the time to package it dude....

Raman said...

Robbie ... Spirituality is also a science ...

Also, would suggest choosing a template that gives you a wider whitespace. Makes for easier reading.

I was forced to do this because I really want people to visit her site and read her wonderful posts. I have been an ardent admirer of the way she expresses herself. I wanted to make use of this opportunity and introduce a wonderful blogger to you all.

Oh My God: So much work Robbie. Thanks a lot. For a long time I didn't have time to visit other blogs and you are so fast now.
