‘The Unseeing Idol of Light’
Translated by Yours Truly.
I remember reading aloud the first paragraph in translation to my brother in December 2015. It was one of the toughest phases of my life.
He smiled and said that it was beautiful. He also said that I would overcome the challenges.
From my side, this translation is dedicated to my beloved brother.
Thank you. Both your predictions came true. It turned into a beautiful book. And yes, the darkness went away.
May glorious, lovely light spread out in all our lives.
May words thrive and flourish.
May we constantly improve in character and outlook, generosity and perspective.
May we learn to look at life anew, this New Year.
