Why should we fear death?

429:

This life is no burden and why should we discard it ?
Death is no loss and why should we fear to die ?
One who is equally prepared to live and die
Is the master philosopher.

430:

Just as the noble tendencies of past meritorious deeds survive
The culture earned during this life continues even when the tale of this life ends.
Rebirths benign are boons to the soul
They become stepping stones to Brahman.

431.

Walking legs, walk, walk and collapse exhausted
Talking mouth, talks and talks and become tired and  dumb
Working hands work and work and tremble  failing to work
These experiences in life are a sort of death.

432.

Everyone carries his death within himself
The rows of teeth wear out biting and chewing food
The wheels of car turn round and round and come to a grinding halt
Working organ itself is death.

433.

Why do we exist and why should we exist - oh friend you ask
What else will be if you can't be so, what else do you desire for
If it does not remain so, it has to remain in some other way
Death is merely a transformation.
 

****

Arunachala Siva.

One's own nature is his death:

434.

The wheels, bolts and rods of the world machine
The sun and other celestial bodies, the stones and waters of the earth
Are continuously wearing out due to their own nature and work,
One's own nature is death.

435.

Scouring winds cause the weathering of the rocks and water erodes the earth
The sun wears out water and everything wears out every other thing
The sorrows and stings of the mind wear out one's body
Mutual friction in the world itself is death.

436.

If the problems between man and woman, the strings of envy due to wealth,
The cries of high and low are absent in the world
How can Brahman succeed and how can nature's progeny live?
Then this creation is bound to dissolve.

437.

Is death the last scene in the drama of human life?
It is just the interlinking episode, the drama would continue
Being the eternal Actor, He would certainly come back to earth
As man or animal or plant.

****

Arunachala Siva.

Difficulties make life sweet:

438.

If the ball doesn't bounce and toss in different directions,
If the players remain perfectly unhurt,
Where is the thrill in the game and what fascination is there to the spectators?
Trials and tribulations make life sweet.

439.

Truth is One at the bottom but hundred crores above,
It is clear at the bottom but multi colored on the surface
Our life is a mixture of poison and ambrosia
The weeds of life exude ambrosia.

440.

As in the outer world so in your inner world too
There are days and nights, the sun and the moon
There are gloom and darkness, clouds and thunder
The golden dawn is also there.

441.

If the Lord of the universe functioning as an Autocrat?
He strictly adheres to a code of justice
Every man is utterly free to eat what he cooked
There is no room for doubt in the administration of justice.

442.

Fate flaunts swords and boons before mankind
To whom He will giver and when is anybody's guess
Pain is no pain but it is the method of measuring your strength
It is the trial of our strength conducted by Fate.


contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

Difficulties make life sweet:

443.

Which is the ocean that gods and demons jointly churned?
Both ambrosia and liquor surfaced but mixed with deadly poison.
The churning rod to separate the two in the mixture
Is the power of discrimination in man.

444.

The power that enables one to remember and identify things as that and this
The power that amicably links the seen with the unseen
Power that enables us to identify things as that and this
And eliminate all distances is the Divine Wisdom.

445.

Like the serpent that swallows its own eggs
Nature herself eats her own progeny
The dead become manure to the new crop
Nature would never incur any loss.

FROM INDIVIDUAL TO COMMUNITY:

446.

The good of the community is the rightful fruition of individual life
Social strength nourishes individual growth
The individual and the community are thus inter-related
So the both may enjoy satisfaction.

447.

The one who laughs and the one who weeps have similar organs
But the lines of face and the curves of the neck differ
The personal  traits and talents of each individual
Differ from person to person.

448.

Individual development is the flower, community
nation and the universe are the roots to the plants of righteousness
The individual wisdom enriches the creation , even deception
Is faithful to Brahman

449.

Why does the One Truth appear as many in creation?
The variety of tastes and forms in the world is no waste,
Won't life in the world be poorer in the absence of
Individual differences in talents and traits?

Arunachala Siva.

From Individual to Community:

continues.....

450.

Many classes are in creation and many individuals in each class,
Even in one individual his body organs are different
If one can renounce the differences in thought, word and deed
Truth Absolute will alone remain then.

451.

When different individuals come into contact with one another in the world
Each individual may sow the seeds of his own traits in others
A separate individual comes into being then
This world is so a plait of many straws of hair.

452.

If you blow you breath on a worm, it immediately shrinks
It is the mechanism of its internal livers which is the power of nature
Rain and sun outside and convulsive pulsations within
Every creature is a work of art.

Forget not the individual values:

453.

The body politic that does not forget the values of individuals
The individuals who don't forget their national obligations
The balanced view that the balance remaining after loss itself is profit
Are all conducive to the welfare of the world.

454.

Nature counts each and everyone and she wastes nothing
Her's is not a blind mold, but she in everyone has preserved
A device that enables him to look after himself,
She forgets no one.

455.

Countless objects, Nature produces in Her mold
Is anyone among these  indispensable and invaluable to Her?
Does she reckon the value of each and every individual in mankind?
What do you say, oh, individual?

Arunachala Siva.,

Forget Not the Individual Values:

456.

Can the community ever grow if it allows no room for individual development?
Nature has marked a price to every being on the earth.
If the nation as a whole forgets to count it,
Is it not a loss to the whole nation?


457.

The marshes of many areas and many underground springs,
The springs and streams of many forests and hills,
The waste water of many places come together and flow as a river
Individual capability is likewise the basic factor.

458.

Sage Ashtavakra and Sri Krishna had similar physical frames
Except the bodily distortions of Ashtavakra, other features were similar
But did the Gopi  damsels glance at him even once?
An individual counts only on the basis of his own merits.

459.

A fine shawl from the yarn woven in warps and wefts
There will be no shawl if you tear off the yarn
Don't think that an individual is not needed for the good of a country
A country can be good and great if only every subject is so.

460.

Individual greatness is the ornamental mark on the forehead of universe
It inspires individuals to evince interest in various matters
Will not the world become lifeless if such merited individuals are absent?
Individuality is great and sacred.

461.

In a bunch of hundred plantains sweet
It is said that Brahman had hidden ambrosia in only one
Men may be many but the prosperity of the nation is assured
Only when merited individuals endeavor.

Maya is moving about:

462.

As the loving eyes of mother and father's kind advice
As the lilting laughter of wife and the affection of son,
As interest in music, arts, poetry and sciences,
Maya is moving about.

463.

She overwhelms us as lover, wife, sons, friends, wealth, home and fame
For sometime it looks as though human life is the abode of joy
She enchants our body and mind and suddenly stabs us in the back
Forget not thou the principle of forbearance even for a moment.

464.

Who can measure Nature's garments and know Her shape and size?
Could anyone measure the sari of Draupadi on that day of yore?
the loose end of Her sari, Maya waves very moment
With a new grace.

465.

In the forms of mother, child, father and brothers
In the forms of the beloved, friend and foe
In the fortress of such relationships, detestable and exemplary
Maya makes you captive.

466.

The butcher looks after the sheep well and sees that it grows fat and fleshy
When it is fully grown, he nicely beheads it and sells the meat
Similarly Maya lovingly nourishes and looks after you
But one day, she suddenly pushes you into the ditch of degradation.
