The Mountain is Calling…
“The mountain has its wisdom. None recognizes it. Its wisdom is its stillness and silence... its balance is its steadiness; its strength is its eternal calmness.”
“The mountain, ancient, timeless and primitive, paradoxically drops its wisdom through its immensity of silence as the poet approaches”
“The mountain speaks with audacity, conviction and appeal its wisdom of eternity, taking the seeker along a mystical journey of revelations.... with metaphors, similes and symbols in cryptogrammic language”
"Highly reflective and meditative poems of wisdom from the pen of mystical poet K.V.Raghupathi, the author of Voice of the Valley, Wisdom of the Peepal Tree, Samarpana and Dispersed Symphonies”
