Ayurveda – A Cycle of Death and Rebirth

https://livehdwallpaper.com/green-nature-wallpapers-hd-pictures/


“At Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania a researcher watched two adult male Chimpanzees separately climb to the top of a ridge at sunset. There they noticed and greeted each other, clasped hands, sat down together and watched the sun descend.”  

Carl Safina – Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel


Ayurveda

Life Begins

in the fertile Delta
where the Krishna and Kaveri
water the jungles of India

decomposition
forms new organisms
worms
plants
bacteria

cremation releases
airborne elements; molecules
return to earth with the rain

what falls in water
becomes components of the sea
the Mother River Ganges

(Oh, to see Earth
through the eyes
of a billion life-forms, reborn)


Thanks to Abbie’s Tree House for suggesting Carl Safina’s book
