Here or There

Those are golden days when in you a confusion appears. Of paths. Two. Not same but similar. You are free to go on either. You have time and you have the means.

The first one was an elderly, who poured his grace for weeks that I could spend in his space. He talked in Sanskrit and Hindi. And he introduced me to the simpler, easier to understand form of Tantra. Probably because he must have grown infinitely from within simplifying aspects of life. He said one morning as we sat facing each other after the concluding worshiping fire. He said tan is body and tra is rhythm. It is only a practise of rhythm of the body.
