Eyes of the Truth


Eyes of the Truth, originally uploaded by govindakai.

I took this photo at the foot of the sacred mountain, Arunachala in Tiruvannamalai, state of Tamil Nadu in South India in 2005 right before Shivaratri.

This young boy's face had such a radiance and a purity to it. I could not take my eyes from his face. I love children so much for this quality. The mind and ego have not yet taken such a strong hold, so that the light of the Self still can shine through unimpeded. Such a wonderful reminder and reflection for us all.
