An artificial bird was placed in a tree and, as each of his students came forward, one by one, Drona asked, “Do you see the bird at the top of the tree? “Yes, I do.” each replied. “Do you see anything else?” “Yes, I see the tree, myself, my brothers and the me.” Drona was not pleased and ordered, “Stand aside!

    Author: More reflections from inmate David B. — Danbury, Connecticut
    - When I got the Covid19 I felt physically terrible with severe joint pains, chest pain and uncontrollable shivering. Yet, I was so at peace, and not only did I manage to chant my twenty rounds every day but even during the worst I spent all my waking time chanting the maha mantra, grateful for such suffering and the focus it gives to what matters and all the mercy Krsna so kindly bestowed.
