Inauguration of  Butterfly Park at Visthar Eco Sanctuary , April 1, 2017.

Just living is not enough”..said the butterfly. “one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower to love”. (H. C. Andersen)  Butterfly is a symbol of change, creativity, freedom,  joy and beauty. A metaphor of transformation. We have much to learn from butterflies. Never to resist change.  Never to rush change. Butterflies possess the ability to grow and change, leaving the safety of their cocoon to discover a new world in a new form without fear, trusting their untested wings to fly without a doubt in their minds.

They work through many important stages to become the beautiful beings they are. “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” (Maya Angelou)

Just as a butterfly, this space too has gone through different stages of change.  From a barren, abandoned piece of land, this space is being transformed (by Nazar and his team) into a sanctuary for butterflies.  And I hope the butterflies will find this sanctuary and will be able be to enjoy sunshine and freedom and plenty of little flowers to love. 

In Christian tradition butterfly is a symbol of resurrection. They are especially significant symbols during the Easter season. The butterfly can be seen as the insect who "dies" as a caterpillar, is buried in the cocoon for a length of time, and emerges in a new life. Symbolically, butterflies are creatures with the ability to transcend the ordinary and take flight into the heavens.

There is a Native American legend that says, "If you have a secret wish, capture a butterfly and whisper your wish to it.  Release the butterfly, and it will carry your wish to the Great Spirit, who alone knows the thoughts of butterflies. By setting the butterfly free, you are helping to restore the balance of nature, and your wish will surely be granted."

May  the wings of the butterfly carry our wish to the great spirit.
May she shower us with rain and happiness


Today, tomorrow and beyond.
