Driving on 280 yesterday

As my mind churned through a million thoughts, tensed about the upcoming meeting, mulling over logistics around home and work, I decided to just step back from it all - figuratively speaking - and lo and behold suddenly noticed the wonderful clouds shining in the bright sun against a true-blue sky.


For a moment, I cast the thoughts of my mind away and enjoyed the scenery of I-280, which is *very* pretty, but has dulled my vision after repeated onslaught on the senses.

I think that is what enlightenment is all about - detachment

Welcome to the spirituality blog

This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
