Jasmine’s Fragrant Language

When a simple Jasmine flower is held in the hand, or when it is placed about the neck in the form of a garland, or it is strung in the long black tresses of Indian women it speaks a fragrant language to those hearts which is exquisitely profound ; it resonates without any need for recourse to spoken word and links the individual with a devotional attitude which encompasses millions of souls both past and present.
-Christopher McMahon
