It is a beautiful, rainy day here in Chamonix. Rain puts me in an introspective mood (more than the usual reflective mood in which I seem to be abiding lately.) This Adi Shankara verse of the day is quite appropriate. Thanks again to Vidyabhaskar(aka Rentsch Bhāskar Chris) for the magnificent translation.
Sadācārānusandhānam Verses 31
"In the bliss of reality,
in the sky of consciousness,
illusion is like a cloud
the mind is like lightning
the feeling of 'I' is like thunder
and thoughts are like the downpour of the rain.”
