A Cup of Tea (108)
My blessings on your new birth
– sannyas is a new birth,
in oneself, by oneself, of oneself.
It is also a death,
not an ordinary death but the great death.
It is the death of all that you were up until yesterday,
and what you are now –
that too must keep dying every moment
so that the new can be born and born and born again.
Now you will not remain you even for a moment,
you have to die and be reborn every moment –
this is the only sadhana.
Live like a river, not like a pond.
The pond is a householder,
the river, a sannyasin.
