Many, many years ago, a sage was meditating on a Himalayan peak. Majestic dales and solitary vales sprawled around were all aglow with the divine streak.Though the birds chirped songs, and rain poured down in throngs, he was unmovable, lost in a deep trance.In winters, icy cold storms blew and the snow around and over him was all aglow with its chilling primitiveness. His soul but was safe somewhere in the cosy warmth of transcendental realisation.In autumn, wind-fallen leaves sailed down with slumberous tumble, and ripe fruits fell proudly, adventurously for a juicy, pleasant crumble. He still was somewhere else when the nature opened these marvellous jewels from her treasure trove.In spring, wild flowers fully unfurled their fragrance and smile, and honey-bees engaged in dawn to dusk toil. He but was unmoved and transported into a state where the ecstasies of natural bounties don’t mean anything anymore.Summer’s warm days sprayed desultory, eerie uneasiness around, and cool nights proudly embraced this son with his soul heaven-bound. Still it didn’t matter. He was undisturbed and was silently moving on his meditative path.Once it was a full moon autumn night. A fairy was flying amid milky delight. A perfect calmness pervaded the solitary vales. Everything was asleep, bathed in the softest fluffy shades of white. The fairy flew low over the peaks glowing under the moonlight. The seer was lost in his trance in front of his cave, the beauty of nature sprawled around meaningless to him.She saw him and hovered around the sanctimonious air of his sagehood. A small, harmless mischief rustled in her young, innocent heart. She circled in the air above him. Her laughter touched the milky sea around and created soft ripples. Her unbelievably soft dress rustled in the gentle breeze born of her circles. It but did not have any effect on him. He was engrossed too deep in the cosmic balance beyond the sensory contradictions and dualities. The more she looked, the more was the urge in her to bring him back to the beauty of this world, to fetch him from the deep ocean where his soul had dived.His exquisitely masculine physique and persona created tempted sparks on her magic stick. She tried all juicily leering feminine tricks. But her desire-lorn swirls in the air failed to move him even a bit. Helplessly she descended onto the earth. There were almost tears of helplessness in her beautiful eyes. She sat in front of him with those rose-red lips pursed in a heart-breaking frown.Her marvellous eyes were lost in his handsome, bearded, well sculpted face. It was mesmerizing. There was not a single worldly trace on his face. She herself was caught in a trance and lost the sense of time and the laws of the fairyland. The night sped away as if in a jiffy.The day rose. The sun arrived with full earthly delight. There was terror in her eyes. The hope to return to her realm died. She had broken the law of her land by not returning on the same night after the brief terrestrial sojourn. The realisation crashed against her soft self like a thunderbolt. Her utmost sensuous bare shoulders heaved under the tremors of this unpardonable fault. A cry involuntarily tore through her slender throat. And then it was a still bigger violation.His serenely flowing meditative phrase met this sinful, full-stopping dot. His communion with the divinity was broken. His long-closed eyes opened. The world of his penance lay scattered. His fiercely burning eyes stared at the flower in sobs and sighs. Her large, flooded eyes pleaded for mercy. But the fire in his unforgiving eyes was unrelenting and cursing.The fabric of his serenity was torn. The sage thundered, “You proud, vain woman of egoistic beauty, become an ugly bush of thorns!”Mowed down by the spell of his cursing energy, an ugly bush stood in place of that angelic beauty. All shaken and ravaged, he left the place. A thorny branch, meanwhile, got entangled in his loin cloth, as if for meek, pleading forgiveness and brace. He but scornfully jerked it apart and headed to some other place for a new start.Time then took to its heels on swift horses. The seasons changed. The spring’s colourful patterns were rearranged. The summer’s warm kisses melted the snows. The autumn’s harvest uncomplainingly fell to the air’s chiding blows. The winter’s snowy blanket covered the peaks. And rains lashed down in stormy freaks.This pleasant wavering of nature, however, couldn’t shake the sage from the meditative maze high there in the hills. Faraway down the hills, the accursed bush was shrouded in thorny haze. It struggled to sprout fruits and flowers. Even cursing has a testing time against soft, innocent glow of purity. How can something having a fairy core remain ugly and thorny for too long? Her pure soul entombed in that thorny shrine prayed for penance. And see, a flower of her fruits sprouts forth!A flower blossomed among the thorns. So beautiful! It lit up with life among the thorns and deadly pale dark brown branches. It appeared juxtaposed by a miracle, like it had dropped from the heaven and got stuck there. It was the day when the enlightened sage arrived from the north. Contented with his cosmic realisation, he came down the beautiful dale. As he passed the bush, his purified soul sensed the thorny shrub’s plaintive wail. His feet disobeyed him and he couldn’t move. The lone flower among the thorns fell at his feet in holy-most obeisance and greet. He picked it up and was lost in its fragrance.The thorn was ugly. The flower so beautiful and fragrant! What contradiction! Flowery heaven and thorny hell together! The latter born of his cursing condemnation; the flower born of the beauty behind the thorny bars. It was a jolting earthly realisation. Hadn’t he broken the beautifully set laws?Torrents of repentance cut through him. He bid penance at the altar for a long time. His repenting self set around a reformative shrine. His soul drenched in painful chime. He braced the thorns with the love and affection purest of the pure. It gave him bleeding fingers so many times. He caressed and cared for it like it was the beautiful most flowery shrub. He was practicing his penance now, of love, of surrender, of repentance. What else can be bigger than these?When his soul had been salvaged of the sin, nobody could bet against her for a win. There she blossomed in front of him. Beauty, charm and grace filled to the brim. Her smile was forgetting and forgiving. It was the beacon of her penance, of love, of beauty. Inside the stony walls of his heart, a new luminosity was now thriving. The sage embraced her. She, who had been separated from her loved ones, got the earthling she had fallen for. Happiness, bliss and calm opened a new door to the start of a fresh cycle of life, love and humanity.All but the sage had been extinguished by the cataclysm. The lone and forlorn survivor, he had been striking at the doors of heaven with his endless questions. Now there was no more pursuit. The endless had manifested itself in a small sip of love. Now they lived as a man and a woman. New hopes, aspirations and offspring began to thrive.Thus were sown the seeds of another spell and cycle of life, of creation. Their unchecked love in those flowery vales left countless exotic trails. Gurgling brooks gave company to her primordially sensuous laughter. His instinct’s procreating sprouts mingled with the mirthful waters of her receptiveness.

Remove the Stubborn Fat by Getting the Best Liposuction Treatment Singapore

Medical procedures to enhance a person’s appearance are gaining popularity day by day. Liposuction is one of the sought after procedures that people plan on undergoing to enhance the way they look. Liposuction is removing extra fat deposits present in the body which helps in the disappearance of sagging skin. In addition to this, liposuction is a comparatively safer way to get a toned body as it is far less risky than other surgical procedures. Also, sometimes it is used with other surgeries like plastic surgeries, implants, thigh, and tummy tucks, et al. Liposuction surgery in Singaporeis one with extreme care and efficiency.Doctors in liposuction clinic Singapore discuss all the pros and cons of the procedure before beginning with it. The surgical treatment depends on the amount of fat that needs to be extracted from the body. If it is a small procedure then it may only take a few hours or less and then it can be performed in liposuction clinic Singapore and you will be able to go home after it. On the contrary, if there is a significant amount of fat to be removed then you will need to go to a hospital, and the doctors may require you to stay in the hospital overnight or a little more. The duration of the procedure also depends on the amount of fat to be removed from the body. But unlike other medical procedures, this is not a lengthy and scary procedure. The doctors make a small cut from where the fat has to be removed, put a sort-of-syringe to pull out the fat. The recovery in liposuction does not take a long time. Bruising, a little soreness, redness, and swelling are common after signs of the procedure, but they fade away after a few days. So, there is nothing to worry about the scars afterward. One thing that should be kept in mind while planning to get liposuction surgery in Singapore is that you will have to take care of your new physique accordingly. But since everybody is different and reacts differently to procedures and medications, the doctor will know the best response and so prescribe the medicines accordingly. Vaser liposuction is yet another way of reducing fat. It is smoother and more simple. As compared to traditional liposuction surgery, Vaser liposuction does not require surgery, thus no swelling or soreness. But before deciding the type of procedure it is important to discuss everything in detail with the doctor. It is a myth that one cannot or does not gain weight after liposuction surgery. It is possible to gain weight even after getting the procedure, and the only way to avoid it is by maintaining a healthy lifestyle by following a balanced diet and a proper work-out regime. Liposuction surgery will only be beneficial if you follow the post-op care properly. It is not a dermatological procedure that will improve skin texture, sagging of skin or cellulite. It is a process specifically done for removing the extra fat deposits, thereby improving the shape of the body.

All glories to Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur Prabhupad, the vast ocean of whose glories cannot be adequately and sufficiently described. Bringing with her the mercy of her Swamini Srimati Radhika, Nayan-mani manjari descended to this earthly planet in the form of Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur and showered upon all, who took shelter of his cooling lotus feet, the nectar of Krishna Prema, thus making their lives successful.
