New York, New York (Vegas Edition) #notnyc #lightsonlights

Behind--rather within--every still city, is a flowing river. Faith, agriculture, trade, philosophy, commerce, and sport thrive on its banks and currents. It is Mahashivratri. I think of Shiva's city, Varanasi, Kashi. Boston and Cambridge are no different.

Bhakti too thrives on its two banks: austerity and indulgence. It is a theme we have teased out in the Covering Religion class often this semester. How do Indic religions thrive on the tension between the two? Do they even think of it as a point of contention, conflict, or duress? How does our modern, Western understanding of religion impress on precolonial conceptualizations of the sacred? Why can't beings straddle the worldly and otherworldly?

My bhakti journey reflects a play between the two. Tonight, I indulge--the view, the silence, the distant warmth. Tomorrow, I withdraw--the community, the celebration, the performance, the intimate crowd

For now, it's just me and the river. Ohh, and Raga Charukeshi.

Bhakti is embracing silence, for it speaks volumes about the Self
