When I sit in the morning outside on the deck of my boat,before the majestic purple of the mountains crowned with the morning light,I know that I am eternal that I am ananda-rupam.
My true form is not that of flesh and blood,but of joy.In the world where we habitually live,the self is so predominant that everything in it is of our own making and we starve because we have to feed upon ourselves. To know the truth is to become true;there is no other way.When we live the life of self,it is not possible for us to realize truth.
“Come out,come away.” This is the urgent cry we have in our soul-the cry in the blood of the chick,living in its shell.
These lines are from the book “Letters to Friend” by Rabindranath Tagore from page no 71 when he was in Srinagar Kashmir(October 1915).I don’t have any words or story to take a dig ,just a prevailing silence and willing to share with the readers.

Today is the Birthday of Aindra Prabhu.I still remember those days continuously listening kirtan of Aindra Prabhu for long hours in order to come out from grief of ectopic pregnancy.I was deeply in tears of failed pregnancy,at that time in order to deviate myself and build new hope,I fell in love in Kirtan of Aindra Prabhu specially this one in the upper link.
You can easily feel the high level of devotion,no compromise with the beautifully crafting of the rthymn, feels like he is giving shape to sculpture of Radha Krishna,as the level of music and enthusiasm grows in the kirtan it indicates that Aindra Prabhu is decorating deities of Radha Krishna with different offerings which is undoubtedly supreme enchanting experience in itself.Continuing with the service of kirtan,chanting in full swing, doors of deities open mesmerising everyone with speechless,impeccable beauty of one and only shri Radha Krishna which can easily turn down any level of materialistic happiness just like when sun emerges out then dark night is bound to go.
