Ananda Pilgrimages – placeholder. Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi "The Sage of Arunachala" (30 December 1879 to 14 April 1950) Throughout the history of mankind spiritual giants have appeared on very rare occasions to exemplify the Highest Truth.
Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi was the perfect embodiment the ultimate truth of Self-realisation, or complete absorption in the Supreme Itself. Drawn from His home by the power of Arunachala (mountain) at the age of sixteen, he remained at Its feet throughout the rest of His life and became known as the Sage of Arunachala. He wrote very little. He preferred to communicate through the power of overwhelming Silence, a silence so deep and powerful that it stilled the minds of ardent seekers who were attracted to Him from all over the world. His highest teaching of 'Self-enquiry' (vichara) was understood in the infinite silence of his presence. —Excerpted from the Ramana Maharshi Web site, www.sriramanamaharshi.org/ __________________________________ —Conversations with Yogananda, #76.
Yogananda and Ramana Maharshi. Thanks for sharing that Sradda.
Ramana Maharshi's approach was so radicallydifferent than that of Swami Yogananda and many other yogis. Yet the Sage ofArunachala was constantly visited by the traditional swamis and masters hiswhole life. For those who were ripe, a mere glance of Ramana was enough toignite the fire of wisdom which is all consuming. Here is something I wroteearlier. "The greatest Shankracharyas and Yogis of India sat at the feet of the Sageof Arunachala, Ramana Maharshi, to catch a glimpse of his eyes.

In a symbolic way, Luzinterruptus wanted to protect and preserve the small timid plants that live in the cracks around the city.
Their outrage at the lack of usable green space in the city center was their impetus. To protect them, the group covered the plants with small umbrella-like greenhouses to shelter them from pollution. Small animals accompany the plants and live with them under their refuge, which is brightly lit with lights. The group was also aware that they would find few instances of plants growing in the cracks, so they also added their own plantings.
Taking hardy cuttings and quality soil, they filled cracks and holes in hopes that the plants would take root. Luzinterruptus’ goal was to draw attention to the lack of green space, to pay homage to the insignificant weeds that beautifully grow in unexpected places as well as to add even more green life to the city streets. . + Luzinterruptus Via MocoLoco Images ©Gustava Sanabria.

Have you ever wondered why so much public space seems to go to waste? Even apparently ‘natural’ green areas are carefully cultivated, requiring time, energy and water. However, these only produce a return if people are sitting, interacting, or playing on them. A great deal of urban green space is never used for these purposes. Guerilla gardening, like many forms of guerilla action or communication, is not typically legal unless it is overtly sanctioned by a city. Technically, guerilla gardening is a kind of graffiti or vandalism – just done with plants instead of spray cans. For more information on guerilla gardening, see the Wikipedia article on the subject.

Windowfarms. A guerrilla gardening blog… Information and Recipes about New Health Enhancing, Whole Food, Plant-Based Diet. Proposed Food Bill. NZ food bill to make growing food a government privilege rather than a human right. (NaturalNews) The God-given human right to freely cultivate food is under attack in New Zealand (NZ) as special interest groups and others are currently attempting to push a "food security" bill through the nation's parliament that will strip individuals of their right to grow food, save seeds, and even share the fruits of their labor with friends and family members.
In accordance with the World Trade Organization's (WTO) Codex Alimentarius scheme for global food control, the NZ Food Bill, if passed, will essentially transfer primary control of food from individuals to corporations under the guise of food safety. And unless massive public outcry and awakened consciences within the NZ government are able to put a stop to it, the bill could become law very soon. According to NZ Food Security, a group working to protect the food freedom of New Zealanders, the bill will turn growing and sharing food into a government-granted privilege rather than a human right.
