Birstonas, developed from the Nemunas and silence of woods, heals not only the body, but also the soul. Look at the solemnly rising sun above Druskai boscage, at devotionally concentrated pines, listen to a bird, glorifying the beauty of the world from the thicket and you will feel that special nearness of the nature, its restful, smoothing touch. Feel the unity with everything around you; warm wave of kindness and love will fill your heart; you will understand it is possible to be brother of earth, water and sun, if you listen carefully you can be brother of earth, water and sun and if you listen carefully, you can hear the life flowing. Justinas Marcinkevičius
