it’s Onam. all over Kerala people are joyously celebrating Onam.
children… they spend their days plucking flowers and running around after dragon flies, arranging the courtyard with flowers…
with new dresses they swing on the trees…
here also in the ashram we have one swing next to amma’s room. almost all the swamis have used it at least once. The ‘grown ups’ watch the ‘children’ with wonder.
i remember what amma always says: “we have to be childlike, we should cultivate that innocence…”
with amma every one becomes a child.
The ‘grown ups’ watch the child with wonder
