Life's Jigsaw - Temple

Life is like a jigsaw puzzle. Each little piece is an aspect of our journey through it. And when at last we find that last piece and fit it into place, we eventually see the meaning of this life.


UBC Day 23
The T Piece - Temple

So having written about my Soul, what could possibly follow on from that?

I couldn't make up my mind what to write for T.  I thought of Tranquillity or Thankfulness, but no words came to mind. I have written on these topics so many times that somehow writing the same thing again didn't feel right and  trying to find something new eluded me.

And then as I was looking at the sky through my lounge window this caught my eye:


And the thought that came into my head instantly was the Dwarkadhish Temple dedicated to Lord Krishna.

I've never been to Dwarka, Gujarat and in fact I have no idea what the temple looks like so I had to look it up and I was quite astonished at what I found.
What a totally amazing moment it was when I saw the Temple in the sky.

I am so thankful for this joyful and thrilling moment that brought tranquillity to my soul.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take
but by the moments that take our breath away. 
~ Hilary Cooper


Enjoy this very tranquil and melodious bhajan dedicated to Lord Krishna. 





Wishing you all moments that take your breath away.

Thank you for stopping by. Blessings to all of you.

  8. What you describe here is one of those rare moments in life when you just come face to face with the Real Thing that Matters. They say there are no coincidences, and perhaps this experience you had of witnessing the Temple in the Sky is opening some new doors to your inner quest. Krishna's flute is calling another lover. Thank you so much for taking us along on this journey you are on...Thank you, Suzy! I am so thankful to read this post today :)
