Here is a place to linger, to let your intellect roam. Aatmaavrajanam is being written as a progressive study and, as such, can be read like a book.

Today, a simple tale…
The Kites and the Swans
The kites of olden times, as well as the Swans, had the privilege
of song. But having heard the neigh of the horse, they were so
enchanted with the sound, that they tried to imitate it; and, in
trying to neigh, they forgot how to sing.

'Freedays' are the 'gather our thoughts' days; Q&As; a general review of the week so far…
A busy week for many different faiths!
Shanah Tovah Umetukah to all who celebrate Rosh Hashana.
It is also Hijra Muslim new year - though it is generally considered not appropriate to initiate greetings in strict terms.
Today is also Mabon (North) or Ostata (South) for the Pagan and Wiccan faithful.
Then let us not forget (for this is, after all, a primarily Hindu page!), that last night was the first of Navraatri - the nine nights of the Goddess/Female. It is the time to worship and honour womanhood and the power-balance it generates against the male.
Greetings to all at this time!!!
