2 Questions

What's a Sutra? and What's Jai Gurudeva?

A Sutra is a lifeline... If someone is drowning and a rope or a string just magically appears and they grab it and so are saved... That string is called a sutra.

Usually a sutra is very short and concise, i am going to stretch the definition for this blog... and mean a blog sutra to be an article on how to be a better blogger and/or create a better blog and/or a blogging experience for your readers! It might just make you a better human being as well! :)

Jai Gurudeva is a greeting right from the heart... I have another blog on which i have posted an article on it. It's very nice. Please do read it.

"Jai" means Victory and "Gurudeva" is that latent energy within you which makes you Wise and Playful at the same time... Basically its a salutation and a blessing rolled into one, which means "May you be wise and playful!"

And your blog should be too... Wise and Playful! There are many blogs out there that are very wise and so heavy to read and you just want to close your browser, but feel a bit guilty when you do, coz of all that wise stuff that you didn't read... and then there are the playful ones, the funny ones... they are very light to read, but somehow you miss depth... You know you want something more...

A truly great blog, according to me should be both wise and playful! Just as a truly great human being is both: Wise and Playful! :)

So, may your blog become a Gurudeva type of a blog and may you blossom into a Gurudeva type of a person!!

Jai Gurudeva!!!
