Without time, there is no dawn, no coffee brewing,
no juice pouring. Without time nothing arises,

SHANKAR (from I Am list)
Long Live the Feet of the philanthropist (Sri
Ramana), wanting not, akin to the sky (pouring down
the blessing of rain), (even) one benefit in return
(for the blessings conferred). (Line3)
