Mangalam – Pearl Richards

The seat of peacefulness of this mind is all mangalam, Quietude, completely self satisfied, needing nothing.

Nothing is required when there is no other being.

Subtle shadows reveal something other than what is seen.

The mind is a reflecting pool where one finds space to pray.

Sometimes beside this hushed alter images of worship, Bhagavan in special forms, arise to greet the mind.

Siva, Krishna, Rama, Durga, Laksmi, Saraswati, Ganesha, Daksinamurti, ones very own Guru.

At other times Isvara is seated with no form.

How can Bhagavan be formless yet seated in the mind ?

There is no place where Isvara is not as though seated.

This is the mangalam of all pervasive Isvara.

Everywhere one joyously abides in Bhagavan.
