Vayali Bamboo Band: Singing Bamboos

On the occasion of The International Day of Forests, our friend Nitin Das, founder of Healing forests pens a beautiful poem called a "Walk in the woods" in gratitude to Mother Nature for her countless gifts.

Take nothing
Leave nothing 
The forest whispers

Enter my world,
as you've entered yours

Yet I search, for something
to fill my life with meaning

And yearn to be free
of thoughts that trouble me

I hear the breeze sing in the trees
I see the dance of the falling leaves

A gentle stream, shows the way
curving, turning, obstacles away

An open flower, draws a butterfly
A silent lake, holds the sky

I feel a tree in my palm
It fills my heart, with a quiet calm

Thoughts give way to feeling
and feeling,
gives way to being

I see the forest knows 
peace like life, flows

From nothing 
into nothing 

Shinrin-yoku is a term the Japanese use to describe the practice of immersing oneself in the forest. Literally translated it means ‘forest bathing’. Allowing nature to cleanse the mind and spirit of negative thoughts and emotions. Reawakening your senses, rejuvenating your energy and adding strength to your healing ability.
