Surya Namaskar #FMSPHOTOADAY

When the day begins
The golden rays nourishing
Today starts anew

Part of the #FMSPHOTOADAY  challenge, today is May 2 which is associated with morning ritual and I choose Surya Namaskar. Associated with Yoga, Surya Namaskar literally means welcoming the sun and what better ritual than to do this in the open air under the new sun.. Well I am still encouraging myself so if I preach more I might actually do it ! :D

Quest for the Divine #atozchallenge

Quest for the divine
Undertaken by everyone
God resides….. within

Taken at the Sri Krishna Matha in Udupi with the sky giving the right look to the feeling of joy (I am always happy with my camera ;)  ).  The haiku is a try at a literal translation and a summary of the famous Kabirdas Doha.

Kasturi kundal base, Mrig dhundhe ban maahi|

Aise ghat ghat raam hai, Duniyaa dekhe naahi||

The musk deer roams the forest in search of the musk smell without realizing its emanating from itself. Similarly people go in search of God without realizing He stays within. Syllable Counter used for composing the haiku. Part of the #atozchallenge with Q. also linked to SWF and Blog She
