He dressed up his ego in a designer suit real fine,
Wore Italian boots, and in hand, a glass of wine.
He was ready to parade himself,
Among all the glitter and glamour of the world,
His ego seems to love attention,
Adulation and worshiping by his tribesmen.

This is a story of a young woman who is trying to fight domestic abuse at home and is desperately looking out for help. Her problem is not a typical physical abuse case but an extreme case of mental and emotional trauma; what this means is that her bruises are not visible but her pain is much deeper.
Tara, a 21-year-old undergraduate student, walks into her classroom. She looks deeply disturbed and sits alone on one of the last row benches. She had decided a day before that she will discuss her problems with her friends. Though they all know about her situation very well, but Tara still wanted to talk her heart out, again.

Hope you feel the energy too!
I’ve always been a lover of Buddhism-it’s focus on mindfulness, living fully in the present, living simply, and above all, its teachings on happiness. The following teachings are some of my favorite messages. For a fabulous start to any day, pick one to meditate on in the morning:
1. “Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”
2. “Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.”
3. “I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.”
