As I changed the pillow covers on my bed today, the thought struck that I may as well share a useful tip with readers, something we all know but forget so often. I also I took a picture of my bed as shown above for this brief post.
All of us know the importance of cleanliness and this begins with our selves and then proceeds to our surroundings. Cleanliness is the beginning of a good quality of life, it is also the beginning of yoga next to basic morality of truth and non-violence ( see here)

In my life I have had to interact with poorer sections of society also and when I told the wife of a laborer a similar thing once, she said, "Sir, we are very poor, how can we afford another set of pillow covers." But she had some old torn sheets in her lodgings so I cut up one, in twice the size of a pillow covers, folded them and said there you have one now, just sew the edges together, I am sure you can afford a sewing needle and thread."
For the picture today, I have used a new set of pillow covers because tonight is celebrated as the first auspicious night in nine auspicious nights of the goddess in a year in South Asia called Navratri. May the Mother Goddess, Mother Universe and Mother Earth bless all readers of this blog and may your dreams be sweet so that you wake up all fresh to the song of birds and enjoy the magic of new beginnings.
