Whoso would be a man must be a nonconformist. He who would gather immortal palms must not be hindered by the name of goodness, but must explore if it be goodness. Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind. Absolve you to yourself, and you shall have the suffrage of the world.

Self Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do not waste the night in sleep and do not waste the day in activities and people!

Stray thoughts...

Night is more real and genuine than the day. The Day fools you around!
Sleep if need be in the day, but be awake in the nights, and observe.

Stray thoughts...

Nothing is more soothing than chanting Omkara.
It is healing, negativity dispeller, Positivity propeller!

Stray thoughts...

Anger is of two kinds. One that arises out of power, ahamkaram, it causes disturbances to others and disharmony.

There is another kind of anger, an anger that arises out of helplessness, balaheenam, this anger is of satvic type that one comes face to face with ones own inability, ones own insignificance before the allmighty! This kind of anger gives birth to humility.

Where the mind is without fear
and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been
broken up into fragments
by narrow domestic walls; ...
Where the clear stream of reason
has not lost its way into the
dreary desert sand of dead habit; ...
Into that heaven of freedom,
my Father, let my country awake




?O heart of mine, awake in this holy place of pilgrimage
In this land of India, on the shore of vast humanity?


- Sri Rabindranath Tagore

Stray thoughts...

Among all The greatest treasure
parents can give their children is
good Samskaram coupled with
Shraddha (Bhakti-Jnana-Vairagya)

And carrying forward this
Samskaram is the
greatest oblation the
child can give to this
parents and forefathers.

भक्तिमें बालक बनो..
कर्म में युवा बनो..
और
ज्ञान में वृद्ध बनो।


Become...
A child in Bhakti
A youth in Karma and
An old person in Jnana

~ from a Hindi Satsang.

Stray thoughts...

If not for the occassional stumbling blocks of our life, we will keep taking our lives to be real! Difficulties, mistakes, problems, deatha keep reminding us the illusory nature of this life and world!

Each of these stumbling blocks open a window towards the truth, giving us an opportunity to see the truth as it is!
