EMAHO !

Traveling to this wild land to wake up the light of understanding inside us. Any imaginable gratitude is small. They ask me how was your birthday in Lima and from my impure vision I give testimony of it. Every awakening of Guruyoga is your birthday, a universal celebration. Your voice in the center of the Mandala from which everything arises; the music of the Tantras, the serpentines, the colors and rays, the globes of the thigles. The birthday cake that we shared, the offering of our bodies. Your disciples – if we want it or not – Dakas and Dakinis dancing in blissful union around You. If they ask me about your arrival and your birthday I answer, and in front of those who don ´t believe me I shrink my shoulders and smile remembering your beauty; and I continue with my limitations on the path towards your, that voice, that calls me beyond the rays, beyond the colors, beyond the sounds, beyond silence…
