Sometimes the mountain
is hidden from me in veils
of cloud, sometimes
I am hidden from the mountain
in veils of inattention, apathy, fatigue,
when I forget or refuse to go
down to the shore or a few yards
up the road, on a clear day,
that witnessing presence.
~ Denise Levertov ~
i have also heard few of the westerner's mention that
the place where the bhagwan used to sit is especially
beneficial for the mind. and this should be because
the bhagwans presence should be stronger there. i
think that those who have mentioned their experiences
of meditation in and around the holy mountain are
fortunate. it is all so amazing that what we call in
india as 'the dance of mahesh' which represents the
universal chaos of which all living beings from the
tiniest organisms so ignorant to human beings who are
so intelligent. we all are a part of this extremely
enormous,diverse, vibrant world and then you have the
spiritual gurus like the bhagwan. they represent the
glorious end to this great struggle where we all are
destined to reach .he walked away from his home so
young devoid of any worldly attachment.his silent
teachings are working their way through the mind's of
his devotees and they all are definetly destined to
experience things which will be out of this world
because once a devotee comes under the observation of
his guru then it is only a question of time before he
is gradually returned to his source. so great is the
bhagwan's grace as he leads us so gently back to
arunachala that we don't even feel it.
may every day bring us closer and closer to him and
remove the veils of maya from our eyes.

Dylan Hits Big Screen,
Three new films look at the legend
Though he once griped that
"cameras make ghosts of people,"
Bob Dylan will show up onscreen a lot in the near future. He
plays an ex-con troubadour in this summer's Masked and
Anonymous, directed by Seinfeld writer Larry Charles. There
are two more films in the works: a documentary by Martin
Scorsese and a fictional account of Dylan's life by Velvet
Goldmine director Todd Haynes. Scorsese's tentatively titled
Bob Dylan Anthology will focus on his early years -- from his
stint at the University of Minnesota to the recording of
Blonde on Blonde in 1966 -- and will feature Dylan talking
about himself, his first on-camera interview in twenty years .
It will include never-before-seen footage from the 1963, '64,
and '65 Newport Folk Festivals, outtakes from D.A.
Pennebaker's 1967 Don't Look Back and silent home movies from
The Scorsese project will
also contain rare television
footage, including Dylan's 1964 appearance on the Steve Allen
Show. The doc is expected to debut at upcoming U.S. film
festivals and air on PBS sometime in 2005.
Haynes' movie, tentatively
titled I'm Not There: Suppositions
on a Film Concerning Dylan, is an impressionistic account of
the man. Haynes says the drama will "draw from [Dylan's] life
but will refract who he is into a cluster of characters played
by different actors." Though the film hasn't yet been cast, at
least one of those Dylans will be played by a woman. Somehow,
this project has the musician's blessing.

You cannot have evolution without something to evolve.
Evolution does not create anything, it only reveals it.
What we are today, therefore, is the partial unfolding of some immeasurably greater Fact
than can probably ever be fully expressed
under material conditions.
