    As she climbs the step one by one which she has been doing for many years,
    Parvathi was into her 60’s and slow and steady are her steps as she reaches near the lord following the 108 steps of hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare, hare Krishna hare Krishna Krishna Krishna</st1:place> hare hare…

    The enlightened feeling is the space between one step and the other take a second breadth, of the sloka the little gap that we get to breathe is the lesson of our life, to take life as it is given and take a breather to realize his designs before another step taken, very true may be that is why we have these rituals in our temple informing us of our heritage and advise of the elders coming down generations guiding us to calm our soul.

    She never missed her Saturdays and was always here in all the 30yrs settled in Bangalore in mahalakshmi layout, she walked over or took an auto but never missed this ritual which she confirms gives peace in her mind.

    Her hair all curly with grey in the front and salt and pepper in the back with a small bun, some kankambaram and malli poo with some marikozhundu a nice kadambam colorful for her salt and pepper. A very graceful personality the glass through which you get a glimse of those serene eyes with a grey ring informing the age catching up, but a wonderful smile to ease your tension, her diamonds sparkling telling you her explicit background, taking all in stride. Her saree also a good cotton with zari border and a matching blouse the deep red and black border one, brought out her complexion and gave a very picturesque blend to the whole image, the calm movement showed her disposition as she came down the hill as she sat near the side wall which was used by all the bhakthas for breather before their venture into their world.

    She mused small little things when observed serve enlightenment any day. Those pressures on mind is no use, one needs to cultivate the patience and this is where u get the manthra of life…sunkan
