There is a stotra written by Adi Sankaracharya about guru/teachers... गुरुँश्ताकम or Guruashtakam.

Even if you have a pretty mien, a beautiful wife,
Great fame and mountain like money,
If your mind does not bow at the Teacher’s feet,
What is the use? What is the use? And What is the use?


Even if you have a wife, wealth, children grand children.
House , relations and are born in a great family,
If your mind does not bow at the Teacher’s feet,
What is the use? What is the use? And What is the use?

Even if you are an expert in six angas and the four Vedas,
And an expert in writing good prose and poems,
If your mind does not bow at the Teacher’s feet,
What is the use? What is the use? And What is the use?

Even if you are considered great abroad, rich in your own place,
And greatly regarded in virtues and life,
If your mind does not bow at the Teacher’s feet,
What is the use? What is the use? And What is the use?

Even if you are a king of a great region,
And is served by kings and great kings,
If your mind does not bow at the Teacher’s feet,
What is the use? What is the use? And What is the use?

Even if your fame has spread all over,
And the entire world is with you because of charity and fame,
If your mind does not bow at the Teacher’s feet,
What is the use? What is the use? And What is the use?

Even if you do not concentrate your mind,
On passion, Yoga, fire sacrifice,
Or in the pleasure from the wife 
Or in the affairs of wealth,
If your mind does not bow at the Teacher’s feet,
What is the use? What is the use? And What is the use?

Even if you have priceless jewel collection,
Even if you have an embracing passionate wife,
If your mind does not bow at the Teacher’s feet,
What is the use? What is the use? And What is the use?

Even if your mind stays away in the forest, 
Or in the house, Or In duties or in great thoughts
If your mind does not bow at the Teacher’s feet,
What is the use? What is the use? And What is the use?



For all that Ms. La Due has done for me...
I could at least make a website for her to promote her personal work.

Morning run...


5am, Mother and I drove 35mins to this beautiful place!
Serene and radiant.
Every time I go here, I am inspired to create a painting.
Like the last one...

Portfolio Day-18



Indhu found this awesome picture online for me, its so funny.
Talking about french girls and modeling.
My mom gave me a weird look when I told her I have to draw nudes.
=/
Well, human body is the most beautiful creation of God (I think). Inside and out.
I have to learn how to draw the outside to learn to draw the inside right?!

Song that gets stuck in your head.
"Stereo Love" by Edward Maya and Vika Jigulina




I thought "Stereo Love" sounded like
"Rapture" by Nadia Ali but it doesn't


One of them French girls..

Portfolio Day-17



My Grandpa's beautiful bunions. This (dad's side) is where I get my bunions from, though mine are not as extreme yet.
And I get flat feet from my mom's side. To sum it up I have messed up feet.
This drawing is not finished but this is what I got done today.
Song of the night
Aaja ve mahiya by Imran Khan



Yes I know eww its Imran Khan, but after driving G's car for so long with only one CD (of Imran Khan) in the car I have sort of started to appreciate his music.

Portfolio Day-11

4 pieces complete

Bobby- a sweetheart

I made her fall asleep on my lap with the magical touch of my hands. Which included a little massage, little positive vibes and some warm love. =)
I have really grown to love animals (meaning dogs), they have such unconditional love for humans. Its easy for us to practice the same on them as our egos are diluted in their presence. It doesn't matter to them how much money you make or what kind of social status you have; they will still love you. Likewise, a man loves a dog with the same pure heart as they are not being judged. Its easy to practice selfless love on animals.
Now practicing it on humans is another story.
Way more difficult!
