    (this blog is recorded on the full page: quick time player needed) Every day as I sit to chant japa my heart naturally empties, showing me my anarthas if I’m honest, without pretense— my default conditioned desires revealed past karma manifested in lust, enviousness attracting me to fleshy illusions and plans, castles in the air of past and present— What about you dear friend, have you stared into your heart at your cherished illusory desires?
