In Full Spirit

In Full Spirit

This photo was taken at the Sri Aruloli Thirumurugan Temple.

The human soul too has to struggle in the watery bog of the material world - through the practice of prayer and meditation and the cultivation of all the divine qualities we can rise above this material condition and be fully conscious of our divinity.

Beautiful photograph. Love your bokeh, the softly fine colors, and the brilliant flower. Your narrative was quite moving, as well. Beautifully seen and said. Thank you.
