Thursday Quote

“In good company your thoughts run, in solitude your thought is still; it goes deeper and makes for itself a deeper groove, delves. Delve means 'dig with a spade'; it means hard work. In talk your mind can be stretched, widened, exhilarated to heights but it cannot be deepened; you have to deepen it yourself.

"It needs sturdiness. You will be lonely, you will be depressed; you must expect it; if you were training your body it would ache and be tired. It is worth it. There is a Hindu proverb which says: 'You only grow when you are alone'.”

― Rumer Godden, from Thus Far and No Further

A new Ganesh temple opened on Devon Avenue on Friday. It has not "officially" opened - there will be many renovations and updates as time goes on - but it's already functioning and the sponsor told me that it should be open daily from 11-8. It's at 2545 W. Devon (across from Mysore Woodlands). If you go, please tell them I sent you. Jai Ganesh!

Thursday Quote

"Remember, Yama [the ethical roots] is the foundation. Without it, there will be no enthusiasm for achieving Self-realization and no appetite for spiritual matters. The goal may be achieved without Asana and Pranayama, but, without good health and some mental control (concentration), the process will be more painful and will take much longer."

-Sri Dharma Mittra
