i want moksha
It's 3.30 am. I'm oiled hair to toe and I am also immersed in incomparable bliss. i never thought it would be possible for me to meditate and chant all day in the full glory of pujari outfit, and then keep up with daily ayurveda treatment during full immersion retreat schedul, not to mention preparing food according to ayurveda guidelines from dr harikrishnan. but then with guru's grace, full-on support from hwubby, and a burning desire to know my own Self anything is possible. so here i am.
Drink tea. Right now, my tea is the summer chai Ayurveda way. No ginger. Nope. Pound some cardamom pods, coriander. Throw in fennel seed, cumin seed. That's it. O yes, sprinkle rose water. Not store bought. Take fresh rose petals from my garden. Pink, red, yellow. Throw them all into hot water with cardamom. Soak, covered, overnight. Squeeze. Boom. Intoxicating rose water. Sweetness of the rose goddess goes straight to heart.
A taste of Suk Wah's first novel
Jews Don't Eat Jellyfish. Or Quan Yin, Please. A modern myth. Funny, moving and relevant. Spirited Away meets Eat Drink Man Woman meets Joy Luck Club. It's Harry Potter for women. I plan to finish re-writes in 2013 and publish in 2014. I have something I want to say and I want many people to read it.
