Bits and pieces is what I have. I have never tried to comprehend the whole of myself at once.I know it will take time. In my journey towards self realization- be a witness and share your thoughts.

Thoughts on Dashami
As a kid, I always wondered why they immersed the idols of Goddess Durga in water on Dashami- the 5th day after Durga puja begins on Shasti. So much effort and resources go into making the pandal and idols only to be drowned (traditionally; doesn't happen in US) at the end of the celebration. A meaningless exercise until you realize why it is important. It is like building a sand castle at low tide and then watching it wash away on high tide.
Dashami. Time for immersion. Time to let go. So that you can rebuild again.
