Some of the thoughts from the book….

Different layers of Songs of the Mist’s existence…

“At the very basic level “Songs of the Mist” is a love story… it has got heart break and pain… but it also has underlying layer, which I would like readers to get to and understand.” from Book Reading organised by Apparao Galleries


In the session, I have shared some of the lines from the book, I have liked from my book at the event organised by Apparao Galleries at The Leela Palace Hotels on 14th May, 2015.

Close all the senses
Hold your mind on untouched breath
Calm eternity

Haiku from the first song of the Monk, based on Bhagwad Gita’s Shloka, first published in the book Songs of the Mist (Pg 14).

The Monk in his wandering across Himalaya, alongwith Ashutosh, sings 9 songs, which he called the songs of the mist, to make Ashutosh see the reason of life and about the way of Yogi. In this Haiku, as advised by Krishna in Bhagwad Gita Shloka from Chapter 3, to find the peace within one has to get away from sense desires and focus on inner self. This, as the monk says, can only happen through the yogi’s breathing practice.
