We awake to another morning in what starts to feel like one long, eternal moment (which, of course, it really is). As Asha notes below, all here are in the practice of Hong Sau with someone else’s breath. It is over a week now since the nurse suggested that she would be surprised if Tushti were still with us, and yet she is - quietly, deeply, gently as in tune with her nature.
Desultory conversation around the breakfast table drifts through years of being a devotee on this path - stories of Swamiji, times of spiritual courage, quiet exploration of subtle understanding of how the philosophy of our teachings plays out in “real” life…Gentle humor and appreciation of how remarkably, humorously incongruous the events of life actually are punctuate the conversations.
Sacred times. The prayers and kindly, supportive thoughts of so many of you buoy this time, where this great soul lets go of increasingly subtle layers of attachment and karmic commitment.
I’ll let Asha’s letter carry the rest of the story…
