Three Questions on Mind
Swami Vishwananda

I'm Giving You This Butterfly:
omeone sent me this morning the poem given below. Remembering that Swamiji and devotees are outside at Shree Peetha Nilaya today and the next two days with Bhu Devi Yagna, I wish that they, and you, see beautiful butterflies this weekend:

The Butterfly
by R. Lee Walsch

I'm giving you this butterfly
because of what it means;
the amazing things
about butterflies
is the way
they get their wings;

See, butterflies start out
as very different things;
each one enduring hardships,
but to this hope
it clings;

One day it will become
espite setbacks from the start;
no longer a nothing creature
-but the love inside its heart;

If, by chance, you see one
-for that one brief moment pause,
and watch it floating by,
remembering this, because;

You too are like the butterfly,
having endured so many things,
making beauty out of heartache,
turning obstacles into wings;

You truly are a miracle
and I think that you should know -
It's not the things that happen
but, how we learn to grow; because

In the end what makes
eautiful and why
-is not the way we started,
but in how we learned to fly.

Thank you Achala)
