yadh bhavam tadh bhavathi


"यद भवम तद भवती।"
This is one of those intimate musings that has been reverberating in my mind for a long time now. It is from the Upanishads, and it simply translates to mean: "You are what you think!" Such a heavy meaning is so harmoniously and effectively captured in the rhythm of the Sanskrit Language that it is hard to stop oneself from ruminating about the philosophy that runs deep within the phrase. It seems rather uncomplicated to perceive the true essence of this phrase, conversely, to appropriate it in praxis is too mind boggling and complex the task. The deep driving desires in an individual is what creates thoughts in his/her mind, which then leads to his/her action or the deed. The individual's actions reflect the driving instinct in him/her, and so is advised to one to have a healthy mind to sow healthy relations.
