I took Buddhist lay vows on the 29th of last month, and for the first time in what feels like forever, my spiritual life seems….dare I say it?…calm. Sarasvati still walks a step behind me, ready to catch me if I stumble, waiting to push me when I hesitate.
She is always there. Always just behind me, looking over my shoulder. Always ready to help, just as she promised. She always will be. This I know. This is my gnosis – that once I unravel my “I” to emptiness, Sarasvati will still be there, and she will carry me on.
