Welcome to the 5th edition of “Shadow Dancing with Mind” and this has one of my very memorable trips to a very powerful temple in Himalaya’s , known as Jageshwar (Click here - Read more about the Temple Town in Wikipedia) . The legend has it that this place, Lord Shiva was in Child like nature and he used to give boons to any one whoever asked him and whatever… so once on his trip to Kedar Nath in Himalaya’s Shankaracharya, one of the most prominent spiritual guru’s, realized that this way Lord Shiva will give any thing to any one whether deserving or not, so in his simplicity, he pushed the Shivalinga deeper in the ground so that he will not be able to listen to every one’s request. Interesting and simple story, whether true or not, but tells a lot about the local people and their simplicity.
Today is also the day when my father passed away four years back and I bring here one of the verses that I wrote years back when he died just to release one of my big knots. And there are many other verses too…
And my untold story of “Yogi Baba” is getting through… Hope who are following like the dilemma Yogi Baba is facing in his spiritual life.
