I wanted to give you a flower too... a lotus actually.

Happy Birthday Tapati..
We are glad you came over to the forum!

We came across this spot the other day, right outside the place where Yugal gets his books binded. However I am at loss over how Kailasa fits in. If Tapati is from the US, it should say "West of Kailash".

Not if you're flying over the Pacific.

Great! It looks like Madhava fixed it for me!
Thank you for all the beautiful flowers, lotus Padas, and that intriguing sign. Taapti is how I spell my name when I'm typing really fast and my fingers get all mixed up
I had a quote all ready to use in another topic but I don't have that book with me; I'll work on that tonight when I get home.
But today I have to get my work done promptly to go out with my husband to dinner. My work is flexible, but that is bad for me when I get into a discussion and then stay late at work to finish up! I talk too much!

Tapati, may you enjoy many more happy trips around the sun with your ticker (read your bio) staying strong.

So far so good. My quad bypass in 2001 and my stent in '02 are keeping the blood flow open. I did have a mild heart attack right after my surgery but the damage is slight since I was right under the nose of the doctors. (If you must have a heart attack, that's the way to do it.)
My sense of pessimism comes from a strong intuition that I won't have a long life and both parents dying in their early 50s. I thought that all other things being equal I'd do much better as a nonsmoker and vegetarian. My cardiologist pointed out that since I have 2 parents with heart disease, my genetics was less favorable even than theirs for avoiding or delaying it.
So I appreciate being here and, after all, it's auspicious to be reminded so forcibly that I won't be in this body forever and I'd better get on with my spiritual life! It really clarifies my priorities.
When you view time as a limited commodity you really think a lot more about how you want to spend it.
Again, thank you so much for the warm and generous welcome.
