adi sankara jayanthi


one of the people, I often think must be a legend. can’t be real…

his volume of brilliant work, and short life spent in travel and social reform…

One of the people, IMO, who didn’t have anything to do with religion and everything to do with spirituality.

I took heart with his words “swadesho bhuvana trayam” ( and my country is the universe…) when I didn’t want to leave India and move to Kuala Lumpur.

 And how much happier I am now being a citizen of the world, rather than wearing only an Indian identity.

i leave you with my favourite composition of adi sankara’s…
