Yes - very true. Nochur Acharya says in one his talks (in a lighter vein) that situations which cause sadness, anger etc. are your friends because they are enemies of ego. Enemy of your enemy must be your friend - he says. Very well said...

very true, Sri Sanjay, Adversities are blessings, they reveal to us the truth, and make us humble and potential to take us very close to the Truth.

Infact this is a popular proverb :D "the enemy of my enemy is actually my friend" it also appears in one famous movie - aliens and predators

True devotion must not get dispirited;
nor elated or satisfied with lesser gains;
it must fight against failure, loss, calumny,
calamity, ridicule and against egoism and pride,
impatience and cowardice.

Sri Hari, Sri Ravi yes,

:) Baba's quotes are a hit onto the forehead. They (his expressions - truth) hits like a bullet, that never fail the target, there is no escape!

Sir,

Thayumanavar does not leave single verse that does not cast deep impact. What is He!! one would want to get annihilated (lost) in/into Him!!

Verse 3 of Karunakara KadavuL


எல்லாமுன் அடிமையே எல்லாமுன் உடைமையே
       எல்லாமுன் னுடையசெயலே
    எங்கணும் வியாபிநீ என்றுசொலு மியல்பென்
       றிருக்காதி வேதமெல்லாஞ்
சொல்லான் முழக்கியது மிக்கவுப காரமாச்
       சொல்லிறந் தவரும்விண்டு
    சொன்னவையு மிவைநல்ல குருவான பேருந்
       தொகுத்தநெறி தானுமிவையே
அல்லாம லில்லையென நன்றா அறிந்தேன்
       அறிந்தபடி நின்றுசுகநான்
    ஆகாத வண்ணமே இவ்வண்ண மாயினேன்
       அதுவுநின தருளென்ன
வே
கல்லாத அறிஞனுக் குள்ளே யுணர்த்தினை
       கதிக்குவகை யேதுபுகலாய்

    கருதரிய சிற்சபையி லானந்த நிர்த்தமிடு
       கருணா கரக்கடவுளே

            All are but Thine liege vassals,
All are but Thine possessions,
All are but Thine actions,
All are but pervaded by Thee -
Thus may Thou be described,
So proclaim the Rig and rest of Vedas.
This is what the goodly Gurus have taught.
There is none other than this,
That have I full realized.
Having realized it,
I have not reached the state of Bliss,
But thus I stand,
That too is Thy Grace -
So Thou intimated within this ignorant one.
But now tell me what is the way of redemption?
Thou, the God of Compassion Fullness
That dances in rapture in the chit sabha
Defying description!

some times, we feel like abusing Him out of love!!!!

From Verse 2 of Karunakara KadavuL:


தொண்ணூற்றொ டாறுமற் றுள்ளனவும் மௌனியாய்ச்
       சொன்னவொரு சொற்கொண்டதே
    தூவெளிய தாயகண் டானந்த சுகவாரி
       தோற்றுமதை என்சொல்லுவேன்

   All the tattvas, ninety and six,Thus recounted and more,
Were subsumed in the one Word
That was in silentness uttered,
As the Pure Void, as Rapture Immense
The Ocean of Bliss appeared.
How shall I describe it!

How beautiful, again the one word that is to be remembered:

சிந்தையற நில்லென்று - be (be aware) without thoughts
சும்மா இருத்தல் - (without any volition) be
Stillness awareness

[which subsumed all possible knowledges - The earth and the rest of elements five, The external organs *[1] of action, The sense rgans, mouth, ear and the rest *[2], The sense potencies *[3] - sound and the rest - The organs of knowledge, mind and the rest *[4] - The kalas and the rest of tattvas Ending in the finite suddha tattva, All the tattvas, ninety and six, Thus recounted and more,...]

Like the Black Hole - [A black hole is a region of spacetime from which gravity prevents anything, including light, from escaping - Wikipedia]

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt
love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do
good to them that hate you, and pray for them which
despitefully use you, and persecute you;

That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for
he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and
sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not
even the publicans the same?

And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more [than others?] do not even
the publicans so?

Be ye therefore perfect, even as
your Father which is in heaven is perfect.




(Matthew 5:43 - 5:48)

Forget the harm that anyone has done to you, and
forget the good that you have done to others.

Ego lives by getting and forgetting; 
Love lives by giving and forgiving; 
Love is expansion; Self is contraction; 
Self is lovelessness; Love is selflessness.

तस्माद्धर्मप्रधानेन भवितव्यं यतात्मना ।
तथा च सर्वभूतेषु वर्तितव्यं यथात्मनि ॥


Hence, [keeping these in mind], by self-control and
by making dharma [right conduct] your main focus,
treat others as you treat yourself.


(Mahabarata)

“All power is within you; you can do anything and everything.
Believe in that, do not believe that you are weak;
do not believe that you are half-crazy lunatics,
as most of us do nowadays. You can do any thing and everything,
without even the guidance of any one.
Stand up and express the divinity within you.”


(Swami Vivekananda)

Learn to feel yourself in other bodies, to know that we are all one. Throw all other nonsense to the winds. Spit out your actions, good or bad, and never think of them again. What is done is done. Throw off superstition.

(Swami Vivekananda)

Stray thoughts...

Wisdom is when we are wise enough to distinguish our own ego-self, only then humility takes over. Thereafter, it will not mind anything, no matter, who says what, if even dirt is thrown upon it, or abused or insulted. As Bhagavan says, upon recognition of ones own ego-self, one will join the other in abusing oneself.

Its just fun thereafter!

Stray thoughts...

all our expressions become meaningful only when we are able to live/be our expressions. And when we truly do so, then everything will be absolutely meaningful.

Everything that is done is done just for oneself. [the root 'I' does everything for itself] When this doing ceases, Life is Beautiful.
