At this week's Awakin gathering in Baroda, Swara shared a conversation she had with 6-year-old Aum (son of Ragu and Nisha, who moved from tech work in California to a farm in South India).  

Aum (spontaneously jumping in front of Swara): Who are you?
Swara (a little surprised): I am Swara.
Aum: That's your name, but who are you?
Swara (suddenly in deep thought): I am Swara and I teach kids like you.
Aum: So you work as a teacher but who are you?
Swara (now smiling but playing along):  What if I don't know who I am, 
Aum?  How should I find out?
Aum (stressing each word): Sit Down- Meditate.
Swara (awe-struck, but pushes the conversation further): Ok! So, Aum, once I meditate and know who I am, what will happen? What will happen if I know who I am?
Aum (stretches out his right hand and puts it in front of his forehead, indirectly referencing Neo in Matrix): Bullets will stop here!

Swara was spell bound then and so were all of us heard the retelling of this beautiful conversation. Everyone offered a blessing for Aum -- and also Raghu-Nisha for the mind blowing upbringing of their child.

    Awe thank you for sharing this! Always amazed by how amazing Aum is. Reminds me of a recent conversation with him about death and religion and how when I was explaining to him about what Kabir stood for he said, but people have their faiths and it is good for them.. Made me think of the other side of nirgun (God without idols). Deep gratitude to Nisha and Raghu !!!
