The sun tanned his light shoulders by the banks of the river when bathing, performing the sacred ablutions, the sacred offerings.
In the mango grove, shade poured into his black eyes, when playing as a boy, when his mother sang, when the sacred offerings were made, when his father, the scholar, taught him, when the wise men talked.
For a long time, Siddhartha had been partaking in the discussions of the wise men, practising debate with Govinda, practising with Govinda the art of reflection, the service of meditation.
He already knew how to speak the Om silently, the word of words, to speak it silently into himself while inhaling, to speak it silently out of himself while exhaling, with all the concentration of his soul, the forehead surrounded by the glow of the clear-thinking spirit.
He already knew to feel Atman in the depths of his being, indestructible, one with the universe. Mon Apr 03 02:04:13 2017 2 Joy leapt in...
