Being the Self

Janaka : “Who is that Self ?”

Yajnavalkya : “The Self, pure awareness, shines as the light within the heart, surrounded by the senses…

…Only seeming to think, seeming to move, the self neither sleeps nor wakes nor dreams.

~ Brihadaranyaka Upanishad – 7 (translated by Eknath Easwaran)


It’s been a really busy last few weeks and I’ve been drawing a lot of inspiration and calm from this translation of the Upanishads.

So simply, articulately written. Highly recommend.

Needless to say, I’m thrilled the rains are visiting more often, and I’m going to be back next week with a Monsoon Colours Post.

Hope everyone is enjoying the comforting blanket of the cloudy skies and the lovely warmth of the peek-a-boo October sunshine.
