Serpent Ring And The Magic of Acceptance

mira prabhu

He told me a jeweler in a town far away had made it for him. I asked if he could make me a ring, and he agreed. I gave him an advance and the ring came as promised—a golden serpent coiled like the kundalini with a small ruby for an eye.

Sanmargam is about food for the soul. Cheers and Jeers is not active – was meant to be for public interest.
