The garden is now full of peonies, iris, roses, daylilies, dahlias, nasturtiums, marigolds, snapdragons and parsley that came in as a hitchhiker on a potted plant. It reseeds itself every year and I don’t have the heart to eradicate it. People give plants for the garden and when that happens I make sure to find a corner somewhere to give it a home. The garden has come to represent so much to me about a living relationship with Baba, with one another, and with the life of the garden itself. It is unruly and a little wild, much to my liking. People pick flowers to offer to murthis on the Temple grounds and for the dhuni during pujas. It doesn’t belong to me, it belongs to Baba and he pulls people to it to plant, to harvest, and to enjoy.
"If we look at all of the shakti processes and channels, these rishi channels, the number one benefit in each one is always will power. It strengthens your will power. What does that mean and why is that so important?"
