This subtle body, listen carefully, also called the Linga Sarira, produced from the subtle elements is possessed of the latent impressions (vasanas), and it causes an individual to experience the fruits of one‘s past actions.

Vivekachudamani: Verse 97

Weeping willow

Weeping willow

Weeping willow

To be present in the absence…
To be peacefull in the silence…

Like a mighty holy river
Flowing towards the ocean

Being

Drops of water
Washing our tears

I am the river
You are the river
We are the river
Flowing towards the ocean

But
The ocean is in us
And so is the river

And this knowledge
Unbounded
Becomes silent presence

mighty
holy

My silent prayers With you
With all those who share the loss of dear ones
