Sundara means “beautiful” . . .

Flowers in the market

“Sundara”  is a sanskrit word which literally translates to “beautiful.” I am inspired by many forms of beauty in my day-to-day experiences, so it is in these moments I am taking mental notes. Whether it is to just pause, or to listen and take action, all beauty at its core is speaking truth. I have come to the conclusion that it is no coincidence that having been a student of journalism, I was in search of truths – writing about them. In being a student of Interior Design, I was definitely in search of beauty, though learned of the illusions of what true beauty looks like. And being a student of meditation I was learning how to know the difference between what appears to be true and what is real.

Alright well, before I get deep, (I’ve been known to write “very deep” articles), my point is that even a moment at the flower market is a beautiful thing. Walk in stressed out, in a hurry, on the way home, try to find a bouquet, for someone who’s sick, having a birthday, anniversary, whatever…. or just walk in sometimes… just because, and stay a while, but definitely stay a moment – however long that is.
