While browsing the latest posts from my dashboard, I happened on this blog. Though I hail from a South Indian Branhim family of Saivites, belonging to Bharadhwaja Gothram, Brahacharanam, though I had been to temples, discourses and always revered our Gods, saints, Acharyas and elders, I had never grown to be a pious and Godfearing person. Because of this, and apart from this, due to my weak personality, lack of convictions and directionlessness, I never made a name for mself, never distinguished myself, not even true grit, I was never the pride of anyone. Neither was I properly initiated nor properly self taught as an adult, I had been rudderless and anchorless, drifting where life carried me.
Fortunately for me, though I never deserved anything good, I had been blessed with a very ideal wife who was the personification of all that I was not, and with children who acquitted themselves well in all ways. What is more I received love and affection from my family. This must have happened to me because there is God whom I didn’t realise.
It is not to say I haven’t been in contact knowledge in divine matters. Those around me were all good and pious people, and I even had an ascetic Brahmachari in our family, who lived a hermits life, and who sometimes told me good things. I could read, write and grasp knowledge well. It is just that I had never been enlightened and I had not seen the light at the end of the tunnel even this far in my life.
Just today after completing my earlier posts, I turned to my dashboard and stumbled on the above mentioned post listed in the recent posts, and immensely liked it. I am going to be a regular visitor to this blog from now on. I am sure there must be many more hits to this blog already and It doesn’t need my endorsing it, not that my endorsement counts. That is all I want to say in this post. I shall return to that blog to continue reading more of it.
