………………………………………………………………………………………….

 On opening my eyes…I realized a new year had started.  But nothing was new…the same sun streaming through my windows, the same sound of my alarm , the same routine! Then as i heard the pitter patter of my new puppy’s feet, the warm wet licks on my face…i realized the newness in my life.

each day is new

when you surround yourself

with happiness

Carpe Diem #710, Renunciation

Standard

Sannyasa is another term for renunciation…

Sannyasa  is the life stage of renunciation within the Hindu philosophy of four age-based life stages known as ashrams, with the first three being Brahmacharya (bachelor student), Grihastha (householder) and Vanaprastha (forest dweller, retired).[1] Sannyasa is traditionally conceptualized for men or women in late years of their life, but young Brahmacharis have had the choice to skip householder and retirement stage, renounce worldly and materialistic pursuits and dedicate their lives to spiritual pursuits (moksha).
