GOD AND HIS BLESSINGS

All human beings are creature of GOD and are part of single universe. We believe good luck by our own efforts and bad luck because of others. We pray to God in sorrow and forget when we succeed. There is thin life-line, drawn by God, in between Life and death, ups and down, which we never foresee, but it is controlled by unknown power. Sometimes we lose by a whisker. Sometimes we achieve unexpectedly beyond our own expectation. Super natural power of god control that thin life-line between GOOD or BADLUCK, SUCCESS or FAILURE. Once we are born on this earth, we find our body is living amongst other human beings; we have to ask our inner voice, what is the purpose and meaning of our life i.e. relations, sharing and caring. The RAM found his purpose in ‘VANVAS’, BHISHAMH PITAMAH found in fighting for ‘KORVAS’,SHRI KRISHNA drived the charriot for Arjun in MAHABHARAT, Tulsidas by giving Divine preachings, Gandhiji found his purpose of life in freedom struggle, Ambedkarji in writing INDIAN CONSTITUTION,MOTHER TERESA to uplift ‘suffering people’. As a common man, we can see many people around us, found their purpose in their lives so easily, an IAS lady officer left her job to take care of her mentally challenged child, A Brother never got married to support his widow sister and her children, a government serving lady helped her divorcee sister and adapted her child to remain unmarried for the whole life. a father gave – up all his earnings for the education of his seven daughters and found every joy of life playing and caring grandchildren, a DHOBI while doing his job continuously for fourteen hours daily without any break provides protection to many families living nearby. There are many such blessings of GOD and we gracefully accept the same to make our life comfortable. How can we live life without such blessings of GOD running through human to human as their purpose of life we have to find it! The one who knows his life’s purpose, its actual meaning, is rewarded by GOD with all luck and achievements. There are achievers as TATA BIRLAS who always treat their servants like their family. MR.AMITABH BACHAN became superstar because he is so humble towards human relations, feelings and sufferings, while acting in reel life and real life. DR.ABDUL KALAM AZAD became president of INDIA because he devoted his life for the cause of nation i.e. ISRO foundation. There are so many examples of common man who is blessed for finding the purpose of life. A shoemaker, who supported his son, relentlessly to become, AIIMS doctor. A salesman blessed with a doctor son and charter accountant daughter for his hard work and dedication. A pherewala blessed with two engineer sons who in return build a new house for their parents. In many ways we can find blessings of GOD rewarded for our pure karma’s (purpose of life).GOD is omnipresent we have to get his blessings only by finding a purpose of life and actually following it with faith, dedication and hard work. So we have to share happiness and joy with all human beings to have contentment and peace in our life. Pawan Kr.Jakhu

www.

Most of the sites on internet which use for social net-working start with www. Here it stands for world wide webs. So www should ideally stand for worship, wise and wisdom, and on the other hand these three W are also the symbols of wealth, women and wine and these are most dangerous in man’s life if he is crazy of only any one of the three. A person with lust remains in burn-out syndrome. Now days, everything is about material things. Getting latest phones, living in the best house, wearing the most expensive clothes etc. everyone wants to be the right at the top in terms of materialism. When people would choose to have money, cars, houses etc. over God. Forgetting all about the Creator during the midst of these things. That is what the bible says, I do believe in Mathew 16:26; “What does it a profit a man to gain the world but to lose his own soul.”
 
In this materialistic world everybody is behind three W. Very few people are there who do not want such a happiness which is not perfect or complete, which is incomplete or transitory. They people do not want such a life and wish for such a knowledge which is incomplete. They want such a happiness which should never end. They want such a life which should always be.
 
Flies do not discriminate between filth and honey; they flit from one to the other. But bee is attracted only to the sweetness of honey. Similarly, there are indiscriminate human beings who like flies are drawn to material desires, no matter how impure, some may once in a while feel attracted to God and meditation, but as soon as another temptation comes they are captivated again by the material life. The devotees are like a honey bee. Devotees love only what is beautiful and good. They will feel goodness, and ever seek the sweet nectar of God’s presence in meditation.
 
There is nothing which is eternal, perfect or absolute. We hush up the desires to seek Truth by petty worldly desires and become happy or unhappy at times and intervals. Sit and connect Inner net  instead of internet and it will enlighten the inner experience and realize the real nature of ours. And three W will transfer in worship, wise and Wisdom. Do worship, become wise and get wisdom.

THE MAN IS A SOCIAL CRUEL ANIMAL


It was one of those hallowed days when the great benefactor was moving restlessly in quest of the mystery behind the endless sufferings awaiting this fugitive life. Undaunted, he was moving, engrossed in his thoughts and unconscious of the world outside his radiant face was overcast with an anxiety that reflected the tension raging in his mind. Feverishly he was striving at the problem of Relativity and Absolute. Suddenly his attention was attracted by a flock of sheep moving at that unusual hour, for it was noon, and he witnessed a peculiar scene in the flock. There was an ewe with two lambs, one moving ahead and other limping behind; for somebody had hurt it. The attention of mother was divided between the two and, vexed, she moved here and there lest she should lose one or the other.
 
All compassionate Buddha came down from the high plane of his mental sojourn and took the bleeding lamb upon his neck with the idea of relieving the ewe of her distress. On enquiring from the shepherds Buddha learnt that the entire flock of the innocent creatures was being taken to king Bimbisara to be offered by him as a sacrifice that night. Moved to depth by the news, Buddha decided to accompany the flock. Buddha was thinking of the dumb creatures who reposed all their trust in their master, the shepherd, who betrayed that trust.
At last the flock reached its destination. As Buddha entered the hall where sacrificial fire was burning and priests were chanting ‘mantras’ to sanctify the victims offered for sacrifice. At one end he saw a stream of blood flowing. At that critical moment Buddha sought leave to speak. His voice was vibrating with compassion and fellow- feeling. How callous and merciless man was in betraying the trust reposed in him by mute creatures, Buddha lamented. The dumb creatures who offered to man milk and wool, themselves feeding upon the fodder that has natural growth, were slain in return of their sacrifice. What mercy should then man expect, who was a usurper, who took everything and gave back nothing?
His words, full of disarming simplicity and innocence, moved everybody. Sacrificial fire was scattered and no more blood shed. Proclamation was made to the effect that there would be no further slaying of any creature in the kingdom, for any purpose whatsoever.

Not even a correct national phrase in India


 'Satyamev Jayate' scripted on the national emblem ,is something which is incorrect.
It is not clear that from which book it has been taken.

This phrase was used by Sangh Govt alongwith the national emblem as a symbol and stamp.
But in 'Ratnakar Sanskrit this phrase  is found in the book, and in the place of 'jayate'  it is 'jayati'.

It appears  grammatical error in this phrase,it should be Jayati instead of Jayate.

Talking about common sense  Satyamev Jayate has been taken from which book ?
Answer: From Mundkopanisd, but it is Jayati instead of Jayate.

सत्यमेव जयति नानृतं सत्येन पन्था विततो देवयानः ।
येनाक्रमन्त्यृषयो ह्याप्तकामा यत्र तत्सत्यस्य परमं निधानम् ।। (मुण्डकोपनिषद् 3/1/6)


Satyamev Jayate ' is our national phrase। इस वाक्यका ‘जयते’ शब्द ‘जि’ नामक धातुसे बना है । ‘जि’ नामक धातु प्रथम गणका तथा परस्मै पदपर है
 हां, ‘परा’ तथा ‘वि’ उपसर्गों के साथ ‘जि’ धातु आत्मनेपदी रहता है और तदनुसार ‘पराजयते’ एवं ‘विजयते’ सही हैं, किंतु ‘जयते’ नहीं ।


  Many years of the reference number of Sanskritbhasha experts has been informed for this change to the govt of india , but this change has not been charted and even no ordinary person has been informed about it by the govt.

How come this error  occur in the motivational sentence and ruled sanskritist not drawn attention to the need to know to get started.

Being in the now

Rajyogi Nikunj, Hindustan Times

It is our most common, daily mental activity. Yet it is the greatest misuse of our mental energy and a complete waste of time. It's called worry. It is good to worry isn’t it?  Worry shows you care doesn’t it?  It means you are cleverly anticipating the future, right?  No. Worry is only anxiety based on fiction.

It is a series of negative thoughts that dis-empower the natural creativity of your consciousness. It is the dredging up of memories of hurt, rearranged into an imaginary tale of conflict or loss.

The most surprising fact is that despite the majority of us acknowledging worry as a waste of time and energy, it is still one of the common lessons we learn from our parents.

The prevailing myth handed down from generation to generation is, ‘it is good to worry, it shows you care’.

Worry is fear and care is love, and fear and love are polar opposites. If you stop for a moment and become aware of why you worry about someone else you may also find it is motivated by selfishness – you actually are really worried for yourself.

You are worried about how you will feel if something bad happens to someone else.  In fact, you are already feeling it. Worry is simply a habit that is learnt, an addiction that is fed by a toxic diet of bad news, unfortunate events and tales of personal trauma of others. The best and easiest way to get rid of this habit of worrying is ‘To Live In the Present’, Remember, we can only find peace in now, we can only live with love now.

Virtuously yours

PP Wangchuk, Hindustan Times


No sane person will dispute that success follows virtues? One who is a depository of virtues is a sure shot for success in life.  Among the qualities of virtues, the foremost one is that it awakens one’s conscience against any kind of bad or immoral act.
We have it from Roman philosopher Cicero, "The greatest theatre for virtue is conscience." One can say that conscience enables one to cultivate all the virtues that a man can be blessed with.

Authors Anil Kumar Jha and Ajit Kumar Bishnoi, in their latest book, Success Follows Virtues, list 108 virtues and tell us how these virtues, if cultivated, can not only save one from the surety of doom but  can also make one the master of one’s own destiny.

The book gives guidance for developing one's divine qualities of head and heart, such as compassion, devotion, forgiveness, impartiality, courage, determination,  introspection, honesty, vision, truth and the like. And what one learns is that the more virtues one acquires, the easier it becomes for one to solve the problems of life.

According to the Geeta, virtue helps one do what is worth doing without any kind of attachment. And that makes it easier for one to get to the supreme state. We can say one good thing leads to another good thing and one stands a good chance of reaching the point of perfection.

How does one cultivate virtues? By being a man of courage and having simplicity of character, for instance. A man of courage, as Cicero said, is also full of faith; and simplicity of character, according Hazlitt, is the natural result of profound thought. A man who has already undergone profound thought is bound to be a man of virtuous character. The whole world opens up for such a person. And life becomes meaningful and worthy of living.

The knowledge peak

Sadhguru, Hindustan Times

Generally, in India, most yogis and mystics choose mountain peaks because they are not frequented by people, they are safe places. They choose rocks to deposit their knowledge in an energy form.

Mount Kailash is the greatest mystical library. Right from Shiva, the first yogi — in the yogic culture, we don't see Shiva as God; we see him as the Adiyogi, the first yogi, and the Adi Guru, the first Guru. Many yogis stored everything that they knew in Kailash in a certain way, in a certain energy form.

So, if you are visiting Kailash, you are like an illiterate person going to a huge library. Let's say, you are illiterate and you walk into a mega-library. Everybody is sitting there and reading all kinds of books on various subjects. You don't know a word of it, but you will be overwhelmed. If you want to read it, you have to start from ABC. You have to learn the fundamentals of how to decipher life, starting with yourself. So, right now, you need vision, otherwise you can't be educated.

When you get the alphabet, then you would like to read the sentence. When you read the sentence, you want to read the book. When you read the book, you want to know everything. Unless you have a taste, you will not even incline yourself into that direction. Let's say the whole society is illiterate, then they will never think of reading anything. But if someone knows reading, they will look at him and say, “Wow!”  What empowerment, just because he can read. He would be regarded like the village man who happens to be the only person who can read letters.

If you really want to decipher and know these different dimensions, you have to put in a certain amount of investment, time, and life. But if you just want to feel the power, you can come to certain spaces, be there, feel the power, enjoy it, take something and go. The grace of it is available, but the knowledge of it takes application.

The mind’s AC

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Meditation is the AC for the mind to be comfortable. We want comfort but we don’t know how to be absolutely comfortable. Let us explore five methods for a successful meditation.

The first is through yoga and physical exercise. When our body does certain postures, with a certain rhythm, the mind slips into meditation. If you are very active or too well rested, you cannot meditate.
 But in a state where the body has the right amount of tiredness, yet still not that tired; in that very delicate balance, your whole system slips into meditation.

 The second is through breathing techniques and ‘pranayama’. The mind becomes quiet and still and you can slip into meditation effortlessly.

The third is through any sensory pleasure — sight, sound, taste, smell or touch. Being 100 per cent engrossed in a particular sensory object brings you to a state of meditation. Just lie down and keep looking at the sky, or when you are completely engrossed in hearing music, a moment comes when the mind becomes still. 

The fourth way is through both positive and negative emotions. When you feel utterly hopeless or very angry, you say, ‘I give up!’ It means, ‘This is it. I can’t take it anymore.’ During those moments, if you don’t slip into frustration or depression or violence, you will find that there is a moment where the mind stands still.

The fifth is through the intellect, knowledge, awareness. This is called Jnana Yoga.  When you sit and know that this body is made up of billions of cells, something gets stimulated deep inside.  The context of life immediately changes when you become aware of the magnanimity of the universe: Who are you? What are you? Where are you? How are you in reference to the unfathomable, infinite universe? Some shift happens within you.

To meditate, you just need to know how to relax. If you are on a massage table, you let the masseur take care of you. Similarly, in meditation, you do nothing. Let nature or the spirit take care of you. —www.artofliving.org

Goodbye worries

Ajit Bishnoi, Hindustan Times

A person had spiritual leaning from his very childhood. Inevitably, he resisted all attempts by his parents to get him married. He didn't want to burden himself with extra responsibility. After he retired from service, he shifted to a small village in the upper reaches of the Himalayas.

He engaged himself in reading scriptures and translating them. With the passage of time, people of the village became curious about him; they began to visit him. They found him to be very wise. Therefore, they began to consult him about their problems.

Years passed and this man was aging. He needed assistance to do his household duties like cooking. His disciples impressed upon him to move with them and he agreed. His disciples took a spacious place where all of them could be comfortable.

Everything was going nicely till a big earthquake hit the area. Many buildings collapsed. Fortunately, this man's place was safe. Supply of essential goods got disrupted. Electric lines and water supply were affected.  But this man was calm. Some of his disciples were very agitated and did not know what to do, especially that there were chances of aftershocks. They approached him, and he assured them that since they were surrendered to God and were serving Him with their work, no harm would come to them; they will be safe.

But how could he be so sure, they asked? He explained, "Everyone gets his or her share of troubles, because of the painful nature of the material world. Even devotees of God are not immune from them. However, what sets them apart from non-devotees is the help from God. In case of devotees, God steps in, as He has promised in our scriptures. He helps his devotees to come out of such troubles. And no trouble or problem is too big for God; He is omnipotent.

Sure enough, supply lines got restored before they ran out of essentials. Yes, there were some hardships but nothing catastrophic. This man's faith was fully justified. The moral of the story: If worry is your problem, become a devotee of God.
