Timshel Tattoos.

Meeta who is now becoming a regular feature in my blog posts sent me a link to a blog post on the word Timshel to share with me her awe at its meaning and intent.

I gather that the word Timshel in Hebrew means “Thou Mayest”. In modern language I suppose that it means, You may.  This indicates to me that  you have a free will.  As a Vedantin  my understanding is that “Karma is what will come to you in life and free will is what you choose to do with it.”  If this tattoo sported by many indicates the same, I have no quarrel with that and I hope that some of my readers will enlighten me further on this subject.

Here or two tattoos from the google images showing “Timshel”.


Talking about tattoos, my son and daughter in love are both fans and here are some tattoos that they sport.  The last two are sported by the DIL.

Both have tried to get me to sport a tattoo or two, and so far, I have resisted the idea. Should I go for it?
