Title: The shape of the Temple does not affect the Space within
Post by: srkudai on June 23, 2009, 12:52:52 PM

Ashtavakra was bent in 8 places. When janaka saw him for the first time, there is a story that he felt aversion at the physical deformations. Ashtavakra replies with a nice example, he says oh king! just as the shape of the temple does not affect the Akasha (Space), so too, Self is unaffected by the shape of the body. The deformities of the body do not touch the Self.

Love!
