The trees are a good example of the balancing of all these three Shaktīs – the trunk belongs to Shri because they are countable. We could actually go about the task of numbering all the trees in the world. The leaves belong to the realm of Ushā. Their number keeps changing and replenishing, it is dynamic and continuous. But, if we were to ask how many fruits and seeds can grow on all these trees and how many more trees and seeds can subsequently grow? It is an endless task and this is Saraswati.
We are equipped now to truly appreciate the last passage from “Reflections” – Mishraji writes (quote) – “I sketch consciousness as an enthralling Goddess; a finite figure on the limitless canvas of infinity. A sculptor carves her in stone. A painter draws her on the walls of a cave. These are efforts to convey the incommunicable. Ecstasy captured in a poem. Infinity secured in finiteness. The limitless sky caged within the confines of my mind. Indescribable beauty imprisoned in an image”.
“What is there before the beginning? What is there after the end?” Mishraji asks in “Reflections”. And then he answers in the same breath (quote) –“There is a rhythm in the Universe. The planets move regularly. The stars ride their appointed paths. Everywhere, there is the Law of Rhythm. Everything conforms to that Law.”
