Sitting in DARSHAN,the mind quiets of its own accord,a STILLNESS descends,MEDITATION happens.

One afternoon, taking a nap.......a dream......

In that quiet SPACE - the GURU appeared......piercing eyes ......index finger tapping the centre of HIS forehead .....

HE seemed to be saying, "AAKU,AAKU."

And then, suddenly disappeared ......

"AAKU,AAKU.....?"

I tried to figure out what that meant...

Certainly wasnt any language I knew...

"Quite exasperating SWAMI,..." I said...

"Wish YOU would speak plain old English....!!!"

I woke up, and went across to a neighbor, who spoke Telegu, Swami's native language...

" Is there such a word "AAKU" in Telegu? " I asked her.......

"AAKU...? Yes ,yes..It means DRY LEAF...."

"DRY LEAF ?...." .....I pondered...

Of course ...!

Swami, pointing to his forehead.......

The MIND....like a DRY LEAF....NO CONTENT...NO MIND.....

It quitens of its own accord,STILLNESS descends,MEDITATION happens....
