Look up into the heavens.
Who created all the stars?
He brings them out like an army,
one after another,
calling each by its name.
Because of His great power
 and incomparable strength,
not a single one is missing.

Isaiah 40;26

"Now my heart is troubled, and what shall I say?
 'Father, save me from this hour'?
No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour.
Father, glorify your name!"

 Then a voice came from heaven,
"I have glorified it, and will glorify it again!"

John 12:27-28

The grass withereth and the flower fadeth,
But the word of our God
Shall stand forever!

He is the God, my Father and my Lord, 
   the One who is full of compassion, 
   the One who has an eye in His forehead, 
   the One of the Vedas, 
   the One without a flaw!

St. Appar
from sixth Thirumurai

Sidhi Dhatri
Giver of powers


Let the Sidhidhathri  who is always served by
Sidhas,Gandarwas ,Yakshas,asuras  and devas,
Always give me victory in every venture.

The interpretation of a sacred text is true
if it stirs you to hope, activity and awe;
and if it makes you slacken your service, know the real truth to be this:
that it's a distortion of the sense of the saying, not a true interpretation.
This saying has come down to inspire you to serve -
that God may take the hands of those who have lost hope
and deliver them.
Ask the meaning of the Qu'ran from the Qu'ran alone,
and from that one who has set fire to his idle fancy and extinguished it,
and has become a sacrifice to the Qu'ran, bowing low in humbleness,
so that the Qu'ran has become the essence of his spirit.
That essential oil that has wholly devoted itself to the rose -
you can smell either that oil or the rose, as you please.

Rumi
Mathnawi V, 3125-3130

Everyone has eaten and fallen asleep.
The house is empty.
We walk out to the garden to let the apple meet the peach,
to carry messages between rose and jasmine.

Spring is Christ,
Raising martyred plants from their shrouds.
Their mouths open in gratitude, wanting to be kissed.
The glow of the rose and the tulip means a lamp is inside.
A leaf trembles. I tremble in the wind-beauty like silk from Turkestan.
The censer fans into flame.

This wind is the Holy Spirit.
The trees are Mary.
Watch how husband and wife play subtle games with their hands.
Cloudy pearls from Aden are thrown across the lovers,
as is the marriage custom.

The scent of Joseph's shirt comes to Jacob.
A red carnelian of Yemeni laughter is heard
by Muhammad in Mecca.

We talk about this and that.
There's no rest except on these branching moments.

 Jalaluddin Rumi

Live without pretending,
Love without depending,
Listen without defending,
Speak without offending.

TALE OF TWO WOLVES


ONE EVENING, AN ELDERLY
CHEROKEE  TOLD HIS
GRANDSON ABOUT A BATTLE THAT
GOES ON INSIDE PEOPLE.

HE SAID "MY SON, THE BATTLE IS
BETWEEN TWO 'WOLVES' INSIDE US ALL.
ONE IS EVIL. IT IS ANGER,
ENVY, JEALOUSY, SORROW,
REGRET, GREED, ARROGANCE,
SELF-PITY, GUILT, RESENTMENT,
INFERIORITY, LIES, FALSE PRIDE,
SUPERIORITY, AND EGO.

THE OTHER IS GOOD.
IT IS JOY, PEACE LOVE, HOPE, SERENITY,
HUMILITY, KINDNESS, BENEVOLENCE,
EMPATHY, GENEROSITY,
TRUTH, COMPASSION AND FAITH."

THE GRANDSON THOUGH ABOUT
IT FOR A MINUTE AND THEN ASKED
HIS GRANDFATHER:

"WHICH WOLF WINS?..."

THE OLD CHEROKEE SIMPLY REPLIED,
"THE ONE THAT YOU FEED"

Cherokee legend

There is not a grain of dust,
not an atom that can become nothing,
yet man believes that death is
the annihilation of his being.

The lotus flower blooms most beautifully
from the deepest and thickest mud.

Buddhist Proverb

A flower that blooms in adversity
is the most rare and beautiful of all.

And the Spirit and the Bride say, Come!
 And he who is hearing -- let him say, Come!
and he who is thirsting -- let him come;
 and he who is willing -- let him take the water of life freely.

REVELATION 22:17

You are the original?what person am I?
A mirror in your hand; whatever you show,
that I become, I am a well-proved mirror.
You are like the cypress of the meadow, I am like your shadow;
since I have become the shadow of the rose,
I have pitched my tent beside the rose.

If without you I break off a rose,
 it will become a thorn in my hand;
and if I am all thorn,
through you I am all rose and jasmine.

Rumi

He is the controller of immortality and fearlessness,
transcendental to death and the fruitive action of anyone
and therefore, oh Narada, the glories of the Original Personality
are considered immeasurable.

Srimad Bhagavatam
