I have squeezed tomatoes in a pot of soil, randomly thrown coriander seeds and methi in the garden and have watched with delight new life springing out of those seeds. All the seeds in a particular place are subject to the same conditions yet only some spring to life. What is it that makes some seeds spring to life? I remember reading an article on Speaking Tree, a part of which struck a chord in me. Here I go, with that...
In the Chandogya Upanishad, sage Udyalak asks his son Shvetketu to cut the seed of a fruit of a banyan tree into two halves. Could you see The sage remarks, "What you call as nothing is actually the source of everything. From this shunya springs a huge banyan Tree."
In an inexplicable moment, the seed springs out with its life force from within. From that Shunya a whole new life springs out.
Ankur (Sprout)aims at provoking that inexplicable moment within you - the moment where a shift occurs within you and whole new world emerges. This shift has the glorious possibility of leading to many other shifts and life takes a different turn. The power lies within each and every one of us and sometimes an instrument can help to unfold it a little more than the current state it is in. Ankur aims at being that instrument.
In the thought process of what can be an effective way to reach the power within, I realized EMOTIONS is a word that runs through every human
If you are looking for something within yourself to enhance your life, for something to click within and and hence to see a whole new different world around you then you will be delighted with Ankur!! :-) Methods range from coloring and painting to meditating and being in silence, to playing, to discussing, to sharing, to processing, to introspecting, to stories, to de-constructing yourself.....and more!!! :-)
And that is the story of Ankur....:-))
