The Monk sees the cliff face as the path he has to take to his destination.The climbers see the same cliff face as a means of testing their prowess and show their knowledge of the intricacies of climbing equipment use.Big difference.— M Sharma (@mona1961talks) July 24, 2020
He just knows the exact places to put a foot & not slip — Owuraku Obeng (@owuraku_obeng) July 25, 2020
Had the same experience in Amarnath. We had winter gear& were going up the cold snowy mountain on ponies, while a yogiji walked up calmly barefoot with one saffron sheet over him.Will never forget the vision.— ✌️✌✌✌ (@0m1s0hm) July 24, 2020
In subsequent tweets a user rightly mentioned, "His feet caress the rough earth with love, yours stab it with pointed spikes to conquer it. That's the difference."
