two sides of the same coin
a binding mantra

My response to Carpe Diem #1376 Re-United
In today’s episode, Chèvrefeuille tells us about the friendship between Siddhartha and Govinda, both Brahman’s sons who became friends early in their lives but, after starting a quest for enlightenment together, their paths separated. Govinda became a Buddhist monk and Siddhartha became a merchant.
At the start of his quest, Siddhartha had to cross a river, to which he later returned, fell asleep against the trunk of a coconut-tree and, when he woke up from a deep sleep, he was reunited with Govinda.
