In step with 'Cuckoo's call'

Journey, enlightenment and song

If you're looking for a site full of reflections, culture and opportunities to learn - check out Cuckoo's call, the brainchild of Rama. Our blogging friend calls Calcutta home. Rama describes himself a "social planner, grassroots organiser and teacher."

"The name of this blog is inspired by the 19th century tale of the prince who became a cuckoo, one of Tibet's most cherished tales, illustrative of Buddhist teachings," writes Rama in one of early posts .

He goes on to shed some light on "a mind-expanding story, a resource for personal transformation, nutrition tenderly provided to the starving soul." That same description easily applies to Cuckoo's call.

While you're in Rama's neighborhood, check out his second blog, Inheritance. It showcases Rama's collection of poetry. According to the writer, "the poems in this collection breathe a sacred sincerity to reach out and embrace all of life."

Experience enlightenment and song through Rama's eyes. He'll take you on a great journey.

Wow! It's been a while. Just like you, I've been VERY busy too. And still getting busier.

Hope things are great with you!

Take care!

Cheers,
Jaycee =)

Hullo Deb! This is flattering, but also very embarassing. I am habitually modest, silent, invisible and anoynymous! Cuckoo's Call - comes out of the force of the urge for reaching out, breaking through the habitual restraint. If this appeals to you -then its not me, but the underlying message, for which I'm merely a host. Your kudos encourages me greatly to keep up the cuckoo call! Best, rama

Coming from you; first I envy Rama ;-) and then I compliment you for discoveing this nice sould (and my blog friend). He deserves this.

Rama: By all means, keep up the cuckoo call! Many of us are positively affected by your thought-provoking, positive messages. They reflect your charm and infectious spirit.

By the way, you'll never be totally anonymous. Live with it. ;-)

Shi: You, too, are so positive and charming. But, of course, you know that. You and Rama are beautiful people, and I learn a lot from you both.
