SELF

Two birds, inseparable companions, perch on the same tree.
One eats the fruit, the other looks on.
The first bird is our individual self,
feeding on the pleasures and pains of this world.
The other is the universal Self,
silently witnessing all. (Upanishad)

    Thanks a lot for sharing. And surjit ji somehow your updates are not showing in my blog roll. That's why I didn't visit your space. So I was actually surprised to see that you've posted many. I've to sort that out :-)
