Leela... you got me on my knees, Leela...

Above: Some of the things on and above my desk. Click on the picture to see it blown-up.

If you drop by to see me, you will see toys on my desk. This is theologically appropriate. Why?

Leela. Or Lila. It's from Hinduism, and in Hindi is written as लीला.

What is Leela? A good explanation can be found on Wikipedia, as is often the case (critics aside). But the idea is, the Divine power within the universe is... playful. The universe is all about inter-play.

August is here. "Summertime... and the livin' is easy...." I hope you're giving in to Leela at least a little every day! It's a holy thing to do.
