I was in Sapporo, near the Russian side of Japan. During winter the temperature goes below zero. There was a programme on the Mountain side of Sapporo. Within few days everything will be covered by snow.
The snow wipes out the colours and shapes. Everything becomes white. Everything gets a round shape because of the snow fall. Trees, houses, and cars are all getting round shape.
Trees get Sanyasa before winter comes. Orange coloured leaves makes the trees extremely beautiful. When the desires disappear, our life also become beautiful. Then all the leaves falls like sanyasi looses his attachments. When the attachments disappear bliss of samadhi can be experienced. Now all the trees are loosing the leaves and preparing them self to enter in to the state of samadhi. Nature gives us these beautiful lessons during the winter time.
