Vidya is the Director of Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center Los Angeles as well as my spiritual teacher. She runs 2 permaculture gardens. One is located at The Learning Garden in Venice Beach Ca. and the other is the front garden of her home. She is about to kick off a 3rd garden at the Center that will take over 2 car parking spots as a demonstration of what the world would look like without cars... and their side effects, concrete and asphalt.
I can only aspire to reach the heights of this humble womans selfless service. I hope you enjoy her message.
Question: What is the difference between the mind and the Self? Bhagavan: There is no difference. The mind turned inwards is the Self; turned outwards, it becomes the ego and all the world. Cotton made into various clothes we call by various names. Gold made into various ornaments, we call by various names. But all the clothes are cotton and all the ornaments are gold. The one is real, the many are mere names and forms. -Maharshi Bhagavan Ramana
There cannot be good without evil or evil without good. To live in a world where it is all good and no evil is what Sanskrit logicians call a 'dream in the air'
- Sw. Vivekananda
