A child is like a sapling. In the
beginning, as he establishes a
foothold in this world of adults
he spreads his branches out
wide in all directions. He
questions about and everything.
How does that work?, What is
over there?. He does so hoping
to reach the sky which of course,
is the answer to everything.
In his innocence he doesnt
realise that the sky is still well
beyond his reach. If his questions
are not answered with love and
patience, we make break his
tiny, fragile branches, and his
eagerness to learn about life and
With a broken spirit the
child grows up to be a man with
little eagerness in life. He has no
branches, thus disabling him
from reaching out to others, and
most important, he has no shade
to protect the next generation of
saplings from the scorching sun
which is the bad in our society.
Swamishri always has time for
children. Not just to play with
them, but also to guide them
and teach them. His answers
reflect patience and concern.
He takes them seriously
because he takes thefuture
seriously. And so, through his
answers we can see him -
Sowing the seeds of our future...
