I love looking at and clicking on the beautiful blue lotuses lined with gold that lead to these exquisite verses. To me, the lotuses convey visually a form of wealth that is higher than what we can reach through the material world, a wealth that is the highest knowledge: enlightenment.
In my practice of dakshina I experience these worlds uniting. I offer my best in the form of material wealth as a way to convey my recognition of the value of this knowledge. And in that sacred act of offering, I touch and come to understand and imbibe the true wealth—the knowledge and experience of the Self.
