40 Years ago one of my now late teachers- H.H. Shankaracharya of Kahmir, Gaddi Swami Swanandashram- always smiled and gesticulated peacefully while saying
"Integrate the mind and be blissful." Shown here with a totally naked sadhu near Uttar Kashi Himalayas on our way to Gangotri.
Although from Kashmir originally Swami-ji lived and meditated in Gangotri Himalayas near the source of the Ganges for 20 years before setting out on a world tour to share his understanding with the West in the 1960's- and settling for the last part of his life in Pennsylvania. In 1981 I returned with him to his cave ashram at Gangotri to meditate. It would be his last time to visit there, "in this bag of dirt" as he described our body.
In almost 20 years of knowing, assisting and studying directly with Swami-ji here in the USA several things concerning "the spiritual path" became clear- at least to me. It is now what I try to share with other seekers. Although my personal spiritual-taste is more Zen Buddhist in practice, this truth "crosses over."
What Truth and Understanding became obvious?
In Peace and Tranquility,
