11 November 2011, an auspicious day here. Swami Veda returned. In addition to all the children and our big extended family, it was as if all of nature rose up to meet him. A little earlier, a conch-resounding procession went from the Shiva-lingam temple to the gate. Children were eagerly running alongside as word spread throughout the ashram that Swamiji’s car was near and he would arrive within minutes.
The word auspicious comes from the Latin and recalls the ancient Roman practice of divination by observing the signs from the birds. On the day of Swami Veda’s return, a friend remarked that she was sure she heard some birds chirping loudly “Veda! Veda!” during morning meditation. She said it was as if the birds were declaring “Swami Veda is coming! Swami Veda is coming!” She also felt they were saying He is The Veda.

From Sacred Journey: Living Purposefully and Dying Gracefully by Swami Rama
Swami Rama: "This is the secret of the mystery of death, and the key to understanding life: God pervades all, and God is the Atman animating our soul, the life of our life. Atman is everlasting, unchangeable, and therefore not subject to death. Only that which is perishable is subject to death, the perishable is there only to serve as a tool in the discovery of what is imperishable. It is the body that dies, the garment that provides the covering for the soul on its visit to the worldly plane. The inner Self remains unaffected. It does not and cannot die because it is eternal."

Eeshan, 10, in London, is of 4th generation in my worldwide spiritual family. He is my mantra-initiate and meditates daily. Daily he goes to the Swami’s picture to do pranam before he leaves for school.
Recently he came to see me with his parents.
He expressed himself thus:
I have three wishes to fulfil in this life:
- Third wish is to go and see the ice caves in Antarctica
- Second wish is to visit outer space.
- First wish is to become enlightened.
I told him in that context that when the Buddhists in Korea part from each other, their parting greeting is, “may you be enlightened”.
