DON'T ENCOUNTER PROBLEMS


A Wise Physician Said, The Best Medicine For Human Is "Care and Love"  Someone Asked, If It Does not  Work? He Smiled and Answered "Increase The Dose"

An engineer in a car manufacturing company designs a world class car. The owner is impressed with the outcome and praised him a lot.

While trying to bring out the car from the manufacturing area to the office they realized that  the car is few inches taller than the entrance.

The engineer felt bad that he didn't notice this one before creating the car.

The owner was amazed on how to take it outside of the manufacturing area.

The painter said that they can bring out the car and there will be few scratches on top of the car that he will do the tinkering later on.


The engineer said that they can break the entrance and after taking the car out, they can cement it.

The owner was not convinced with any ideas and felt like it is a bad sign to break or scratch.

The watchman was watching all these drama and slowly approached the owner. He wanted to give an idea if they have no problem. They thought what this guy would tell them that the experts could not give.

Watchman said that the car is only few inches taller than the entrance so if they release the air in the tyre, the height of the car will be adjusted and can be easily taken out.

Everyone there clapped their hands for him. Don't encounter problems from the expert point of view. There is always a layman point that will attract the masses.

LIFE IN THE WORLD MEERA BHAJAN TRANSLATION

MEERA BHAJAN TRANSLATION

Life in the world is short, 
Why shoulder an unnecessary load
Of worldly relationships?
Thy parents gave thee birth in the world,
But the Lord ordained thy fate.
Life passes in getting and spending,
No merit is earned by virtuous deeds.

I will sing the praises of Hari
In the company of the holy men,
Nothing else concerns me.
Mira's Lord is the courtly Giridhara,
She says: Only by Thy power
Have I crossed to the further shore.

TODAY SHRAVANA POURNAMI HAYAGRIVA JAYANTHI RAKSHA BANDHAN AND SANSKRIT DAY

Inline image 1

Hayagriva Jayanti is believed to be the day when Haygriva incarnation of Lord Vishnu appeared on earth. Hayagriva, the horse-faced one, is a very rare avatar of Vishnu. The purpose of this Avatar was to retrieve the stolen Vedas from the demons. Ancient texts says that Hayagriva is the first person to offer Akasharabasyam to Goddess Saraswati. That is the reason why, who performs aksharabhasyam to the child before the deity of Hayagriva will flourish well in education.

Haya, the horse, can bring miracles. It is not just an animal. It is a symbol of the highest possible wisdom. Worshipping and Seeking the blessings of Hayagriva makes life very easy, especially for students as he is the most important God to worship for knowledge. Sacred texts say that Hayagriva empowers his devotees with Knowledge and wisdom; the scared text says that, He makes life easy for people who worship him, by making them understand the problems much easily and also brings in clarity of thoughts.

"Raksha Bandhan”  in Sanskrit literally means "the tie or knot of protection". The word Raksha means protection, while Bandhan is the verb to tie. Raksha Bandhan is now considered as a day to celebrate the sacred relation of a brother and a sister. Yet there have been examples in history where in rakhi has just been a raksha or protection. It could be tied by wife, a daughter or mother, or by a to the Guru disciple, even a friend can also tie to another friend vowing “I will defence you” And You defense me, we together defence the whole world ”. This bond does not have to be between blood relatives. When a Rakhi is tied on the wrists of close friends and neighbors, it underscores the need for a harmonious social life. This helps to broaden one’s vision beyond the borders of ones own family to the entire earth (vasudha) as one family –“Vasudhaiva kutumbam”.

Raksha Bandhan symbolizes the unmatched bond of love, care and respect. This festival conveys a message that has socio spiritual significance underscoring the need for nurturing of positive qualities, purity in thought, word and deed. The occasion involves a pledge of life-time practice of moral, cultural and spiritual values. The values and the sentiments attached to the rituals of this festival are worth inculcating by the whole human race, the sentiments of harmony and peaceful coexistence. The festival of Raksha Bandhan assumes all forms of Raksha or protection, of righteousness and destroyer of all sin.

Sanskrit Diwas is celebrated to mark the importance of Sanskrit language, the mother of all Indian languages and the first among the ancient languages spoken in India. Sanskrit Diwas is annually observed on the Shravana Purnima day as per Hindu lunar calendar. Sanskrit Diwas is also known as Sanskrit Day.

I wish to end this post by quoting a Hayagriva Strotram, that one can chant for good knowledge and true education:

'Jnananadamayam devam
Nirmala spatikakrutim!
Aadaram sarpavidyanam
Hayagriva Mupasmahe!!

TODAY KARKKADAKA MASAM/RAMAYANA MASAM ENDING.


Inline image 1

In the Ramayana, there is no 'preaching of principles' but you are taken through the Avatar's journey as a human being. Lord Rama depicts how a man should uphold virtuous ideals no matter what the conflicts within a family may be. He exercises his choices and decisions in a way that upholds Dharma. Through all the hurdles in His life, he remained as the perfect son, an ideal king, a true husband, It teaches a wife how to love, honor and respect the choices they make together as husband and wife, a real friend, a devoted brother, a perfect student, and above all a noble enemy! Each and every one of His actions is a lesson to us and thus He is the perfect teacher of humankind to this day.

Typically, many people raised a question that how come Rama can be an Ideal husband as he sent sita to exile. Rama is an Ideal husband and an Incident in Ramayana is an example to this.After killing Ravana, Lord Rama is resting on a rock. He notices a shadow approaching him. He realises that the shadow is that of a woman. He does not lift His eyes to see who it is, for, Lord Rama never looks at any woman other than Sita. As the shadow nears Him, Lord Rama pulls His feet up, and sits with His legs folded. This is to avoid even the shadow of the unknown woman touching His feet. So careful is He that none other than His wife should touch Him. Lord Rama is particular that even the shadow of another woman should not touch Him. The shadow is then seen to recede. Lord Rama wonders who it is; who had come so close to Him and had yet retreated. So He enquires who the person is. The shadow is that of Mandodari, and she discloses who she is. Lord Rama asks her why she is there. She says she heard that Ravana was killed in battle. Ravana had been a king who had struck fear in the hearts of his enemies. Everyone believed him to be invincible. And yet, he had been killed by someone. She had come to the battlefield to look at the man who killed her husband. She wanted to know what quality He had that her husband did not have. Lord Rama then asks her whether she found what that quality was. Mandodari says she has found that quality. Lord Rama is particular that even the shadow of a woman other than his wife should not touch Him. Ravana, on the other hand, was willing to sacrifice so many lives in his attempt at making another man's wife his. Therein lies the difference. That one quality of Lord Rama has led to His victory. Lord Rama was the one whose thoughts and words never went astray.

Many have a problem with the way Rama treated his wife, Sita. I don't want to approach the Ramayana as a cynic. I want to approach the story of God as the glory of the Lord, the choices He made and interpret it in the context of its divine sankalpa. The logical men and women can scoff for their loss is theirs and mine is a spiritual gain. My purpose in undertaking sadhana is and has never been material. I take pride in remaining steadfastly anchored in being spiritual.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY


Inline image 1

In the Blessed memory of those courageous Indians
Who died in the struggle for freedom,
Thousands of men and women have given their lives
Some one they never knew nor will ever meet
So today we say a little prayer of thanks to those
Countless unsung Patriots who paid the price of their life
For the supreme cause of the independence

Inline image 2

In memory of our soldiers, who laid down their
Lives in defence of our nation
For they who at the call of the duty
Left all that was dear to them
Endured hardships, faced dangers and
Finally passed out of sight of men
In the path of the duty and self sacrifice, giving their lives
So we might live in freedom
So on this 70th INDEPENDENCE DAY
Remember those unsung heroes
And the pledge allegiance to the flag of our mother Land
