One Vast Garden
"I find one vast garden spread out all over the universe. All plants, all human beings, all higher mind bodies are about in this garden in various ways, each has his own uniqueness and beauty. Their presence and variety give me great delight. Every one of you adds with his special feature to the glory of the garden." By: Sri Ananandamayi Ma

- Confucius

Death is at once The end of the body's Old journey And the beginning of the soul's New journey.
