Vedas, Upanishads, Puranas
In July 2022, Sabi got a unique gift from her aunt: a book named “365 Stories from Vedas Upanishads and Puranas.” Here’s what she learned:
- More than a Body: Sabi found out we have deeper roots, hinting at our connection to monkeys, and got a glimpse of the soul or Atman.
- Family Ties: Stories talked about sticking together as a family, valuing elders, and community’s strength. They showed Sabi how both fathers and mothers play different yet equally important roles.
- Learning from the Wise: Upanishads had tales of students learning from gurus. Sabi could relate to them because of her Kyoshi.
- Deep Ideas: Sabi came across thoughts like dharma, karma, and samsara.
- Brains over Brawn: Characters like Lord Krishna and Ganesha taught that using her head often beats using her fists.
With her growing curiosity and questions, a 15-day temple tour across Delhi, Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Madhya Pradesh was our next adventure.
