There is a vast creation beyond this fence, which might only seem like a mesmerizing portrait for now. However, We can split open this attractive image and merge ourselves with the reality of its vast existence, only when we become capable to see the various amplitudes and dimensions of the same. In spite of spending most of its life in just feeding itself, what a natural event it is for the caterpillar to be transformed into a butterfly that can fly with grace and freedom. Likewise, it can be as natural for us too, to easily mutate, break-free from the shackles and become one with the vast existence. Chanshi has been aiding this process, through facilitating the right ambience and atmosphere needed for the same", he says.
