#GuruPurnima Thread 1/n
Lets begin with the prarthana : #ShriGurudevaDatta 🙏 Saashtang Namaskar to Shri DattaGuru 🙏🏻 the Primordial or Adi Guru who has manifested time & again in various avatars to guide humanity through the maze of life called YogaMaya
Birth : Shri Dattatreya is known as Atri Putra-Son of Maharshi Atri & his wife Sati Anusuya who was the epitome of Pativrata
Brahma Vishnu & Mahadeva in order to test her approached her as sadhus & asked for Nirvana Daana
Anusuya immediately prayed & wished that the 3 sadhus appear to her as infants so she could complete their wish without violating her pativrata-the power of her spirituality transformed the Tridev into 3 infants whom she could nursed & fulfilled their wish

On this auspicious day of #GuruPurnima, happy to share an easy to read and an exceptionally worthwhile investment. I plan to make a thread that will hopefully help us invest and live better. Thank you @awealthofcs 🙏🏻
Experience has taught me that less is always more when making investment decisions. Simplicity trumps complexity. Conventional gives you much better odds than exotic. A long-term process is more important than short-term outcomes.
And perspective goes much further than tactics. Tactics are useless to investors in a matter of days—sometimes in a matter of hours. But perspective is something that stays with the investor for a lifetime. It allows you to adapt to the changing market and economic landscape.

Jai Mahakaal. On #GuruPurnima a short thread on my Veda Guru, the late Phatak Guruji.. Veda Vachaspati.

Story starts in 1998. I am a surgeon training in England at the time. I take a decent amount of leave more than a month and come down to Pune...
On my second day in Pune, I get a strange dream... which says to me to learn Pavmana Sukta. I decide to ask my good friend whether anybody can teach me Pavmana. He looks a bit shocked, the sukta is 635 Ruchas.
Still, he asks me to visit Nakhate Maharaj for advice. Nakhate Maharaj as usual just nods and asks me to visit Phatak Guruji who lives next door... he says “Just say that I sent you and describe your dream”.

"I shall leave my dreams in their argent air,
For in a raiment of gold and blue
There shall move on the earth embodied and fair
The living truth of you..."

"Storm is the dance of the locks of the God assenting to greatness..

Veiled in events he lives and working disguised in the mortal
Builds our strength by pain, and an empire is born out of ruins..”

"Yet all we dream and hope are memories treasured,
Are forecasts we misspell,
But of what life or scene he who has measured
The boundless heavens can tell.."
