Pohon tulasi adalah tanaman yang merupakan symbol Krsna (avatara Wisnu) dan saya sangat menyukai pohon tulasi sehingga saya mencari bibit tulasi ke berbagai tempat dan bertanya pada banyak orang. Hingga akhirnya seseorang berkata: saya punya banyak pohon tulasi dan akan mengambil bijinya untuk mu; nanti bijinya tinggal disebar ditempat yang suci dan bersih karena pohon tulasi sangat suci.

Ya, I was so so happy… and grateful. Finally saya mendapatkan bibit tulasi dan si pemberi adalah si pemilik “punggung lusuh” (silahkan baca artikel saya berjudul “punggung lusuh” ) 🙂

Hari yang ditunggu pun tiba, satu plastik biji tulasi saya terima. Saya berjanji pada diri sendiri untuk menjaga biji tulasi tersebut penuh kasih sayang. Tertanamlah biji tulasi di tanah yang kami sucikan dan ternyata dia tumbuh dengan subur dan indahnya… terciptalah budaya baru di keluarga kami: sembahyang dengan daun bunga dari pohon tulasi.

Ternyata, biji tulasi ini bisa tumbuh dengan subur apabila ditanam di tempat yg suci dan tentu dengan penuh cinta kasih.. selayaknya orang Bali yang menganut konsep bahwa seluruh makhluk hidup harus dicintai… apalagi tanaman yang disucikan. Selanjutnya, ternyata lagi nih… Banyak tetangga yang membutuhkan daun tulasi untuk obat karena menurut mereka bisa menyembuhkan. WOW… we just realized it. Akhirnya tersebarlah sang tulasi ke setiap halaman tetangga. So lovely 🙂

O ya, hari dimana biji suci tulasi aku terima adalah tgl 18 Desember dan di hari itu juga aku menemukan salah satu alasan kenapa aku dilahirkan. Dia… si empunya punggung lusuh, dia bercerita banyak tentang kehidupan yang membuatku termenung sambil memegangi erat biji tulasi. Setetes air mata mengalir di pipi yang disertai tatapan kosongku. Sambil ku bergumam: I knew it… I knew this all since kid and you make it clear… ya, I found you in fact and yes, this is the answer for all of my journey along this time.

Biji suci tulasi menjadi saksi bisu percakapan kami… percakapan tentang kehidupan dan karma ratusan tahun; bahkan mungkin ribuan tahun. Biji tulasi tumbuh subur di tanah suci kami dan terus akan demikian… selalu berbagi berkah untuk setiap mahkluk yang membutuhkan.

cinta “pohon tulasi”… hanya tumbuh di tanah kebajikan, sebiji kecil tumbuh mekar kokoh dan indah, berkat hembusan kasih tak bertepi 🙂

after the night

Screenshot_2017-12-13-07-43-16

When I woke up this morning, like usual I checked alarm and some messages; including in Instagram. Then I saw this appears on my page: picture of a bird in the bush as the first light hits.

The caption catch my eyes: there is a special energy that happens this time of day.

Also, I reminded that after the night, all things start over… new life, bird start singing again, the predator perhaps moved away already or might be still sleep till hungriness woke them up.

Furthermore, I love nature… it taught me a lot about life; pure beauty, basic instinct, survival, love, being in present, etc… No wonder if hiking is one of my favorite hobbies and mountain is the most loveliest spot for me 🙂

enjoy!!

Breathes…

Silent night…. wind breathes through my skin… my ears…

and it holds me tight as we mingle to the un-touch world.

Life…. dream…. it whispered in my mind till I realize it is a he…

the holy soul who grabbed my soul to the eternity 🌹

with love, ♡putu♡

The Path – poem by Lord Buddha

Best of the paths is the eightfold,
best of the truths the four;
best of the virtues is freedom from attachment;
best of the people is the one who sees.
This is the path;
there is no other that leads to the purifying of insight.

Follow this path, and Mara will be confused.
If you follow this path, you will end your suffering.
This path was preached by me
when I became aware of the removal of the thorns.
You yourself must make the effort.
The perfected ones are only preachers.
Those who enter the path and practice meditation
are released from the bondage of Mara.

“All created things perish.”
Whoever realises this transcends pain;
this is the clear path.

“All created things are sorrow.”
Whoever realizes this transcends pain;
this is the clear path.

“All forms are unreal.”
whoever realizes this transcends pain;
this is the clear path.

Whoever does not rise when it is time to rise,
who, though young and strong, is lazy,
who is weak in will and thought,
that lazy and idle person will not find the path of wisdom.

Watching one’s speech, restraining well the mind,
let one not commit any wrong with one’s body.
Whoever keeps these three roads of action clear,
will make progress on the path taught by the wise.

Through meditation wisdom is gained;
through lack of meditation wisdom is lost.
Whoever knows this double path of progress and decline,
should place oneself so that wisdom will grow.

Cut down the forest of desires, not just a tree;
danger is in the forest.
When you have cut down the forest and its undergrowth,
then, mendicants, you will be free.

As long as the desire, however small,
of a man for women is not destroyed,
so long is his mind attached,
like a sucking calf is to its mother.

Cut out the love of self,
like an autumn lotus, with your hand.
Cherish the path of peace.
Nirvana has been shown by the Buddha.

“Here I shall live in the rain,
here in winter and summer.”
Thus thinks the fool, not thinking of death.
Death comes and carries off that person
who is satisfied with one’s children and flocks,
whose mind is distracted,
like a flood carries off a sleeping village.

Sons are no help, nor a father, nor relations;
for one who is seized by death, there is no safety in family.
Understanding the meaning of this, the wise and just person
should quickly clear the path that leads to nirvana.
