where secrets & treasures are kept safe
The Hollow Mountain
The Treasure of Treasures
As a man leaves an old garment
puts on one that is new,
the Spirit leaves his mortal body
then puts on one that is new.
Weapons cannot hurt the Spirit and fire can never burn him. Untouched is he by drenching waters,
untouched is he by parching winds.
Beyond the power of sword and fire,
beyond the power of water and winds,
the Spirit is everlasting, omnipresent,
Invisible is he to mortal eyes,
and beyond change.
Know that he is and cease from sorrow.
(small extract from The Bhagavad Gita i)
If the soul finds her spirit, her treasure
if Cinderella finds her prince
that is when
they will live happily ever after.
