 To a skylark
Hail to the, blithe spirit! Bird thou never wert.
That from heaven or near it
Pourest thy full heart
In profuse strains of unpremeditated art,

Higher still and higher
From the earth thou springest,
Like a cloud of fire;
The blue deep thou wingest,
and singing still dost soar and soaring ever singest
…Percy Bysshe Shelly

The complete Man
A divided man is miserable—materialist or spiritualist, moral or
immoral, sinner or saint .He becomes a battleground with a
continuing civil war. A real human being accepts his totality.
The new man will be earthy and divine, worldly and other-worldly. He
will have to accept his totality without inner division. His God will
not be opposed to the Devil, morality not opposed to immorality.
He will transcend duality. My concept of the new man is that he will
be Zobra, the sensuous Greek and Buddha, the spiritual. He will be
Christ and Epicurus together.
….. OSHO

Here are some of the paintings and work of art in my Grandpa's Home , read the descriptions in his own words beneath each one of them ...

.A group of manipuri dance performers with a drummer--- hand painted on silk by an unknown Bengal artist

Some broken marble pieces assembled by me to represent a hilly range with Ganpati Ganesh installed at the top and Bhagwan Buddha meditating below with his aura around.

Another Madhubani painting by unknown artist depicting Lord Vishnu in Matsya and Kachap Avatar.

Beautiful paintings...and To The Skylark, I am reminded of my college days...

In the golden lightning
Of the sunken sun
O'er which clouds are bright'ning,
Thou dost float and run,
Like an unbodied joy whose race is just begun.

Lovely lines...

Have a great day!
