God's creation
« on: October 19, 2010, 02:26:48 PM »
A person was idly sitting under an apple tree enjoying the nature and surroundings.
His eyes fell on a huge pumpkin on a pumpkin creeper in a nearby bush.

He thought: "Such a huge apple tree is having so small a fruit and a frail pumpkin creeper is overburdened with a huge fruit (vegetable). God's creation does not seem to match proportions."

Suddenly an apple fell on him and he was a little hurt.
He realized: "It is because of smallness of apples that I am only a little hurt; had pumpkins grown on apple trees and had fallen on me, what would have happened to me? God surely understands what he does."
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...

Dear silentgreen,

Every one of God's creation has a purpose and a meaning. Even
mosquitoes and bed bugs have some meaning in their creation.
We do not know 'what for' about many of them.

The aim and purpose of human life is self realization.  Yet only a very few have this conviction.  Even among them ony a few are determined in it.

Dear S. Subramanian,

Yes.  Very true.  But this interest in liberation, or self realization
is not had by all.  Many poor wants to become rich in the next
birth.  Many rich wants to have sicknesss free health in next
birth.  Many a child less couple want to have a child in next
birth.  The not so beautiful wants beauty.  The desires are endless.
Desire for the Self is quite rare.  That is why, Sri Sankara says
in Vivekachudmani, one should have mumukshatvam as the first
requisite.  Leaving all that have been told above, one should have
serious desire to attain the Self.  For this, Sri Sankara says mumukshatvam is nothing but throwing away the ego through
vicharam.  The best aid is bhakti.  What is bhakti?  Bhakti is
atma-anusanthanam.  He also says for this moksham, sraddha, bhakti, dhyana and yoga are auxillaries.
