Sutradhar

Literally, the holder of string. But also, the teller of stories in the world of classical Sanskrit. He is of this world of illusions – Maya. And yet he is the herald of truth – Satya.
Simultaneously looking forward and backwards, a Sutradhar is he who is the bridge between two worlds, two realities. He who owns nothing. But is the repository of all knowledge.
Paro’s Sutradhar is she who takes us towards our ancestral wisdom. The one who unearths and illuminates what we have forgotten. This is where we return to our roots and rituals. The stories are told in one voice.
The stories are told in many voices. Because cultural knowledge is a shared heritage and we are all keepers and inheritors and messengers of that knowledge. We are all Sutradhars.

Cultivating Prana
Whoever you may be, and wherever you may live, you live your life well when you live it at the right rate. Plow your way through life and life will wear you out; poke your way along and your life may grind to a halt. Find a pace that suits you, though, and amble along it accordingly, and your world will spontaneously level a path for you

Love in the Time of Climate Change
When a 16 year old climate campaigner—Greta Thunberg—has to stand before seasoned politicians in the US (and the world), telling them “This Is The Time To Wake Up”, calling out a nation, the largest emitter of greenhouse gases for their inaction - you know that we live in a world of ecological ignorance and environmental neglect
