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.
