transform the divided individual into the world personality....

"When we have passed beyond knowings, then we shall have Knowledge.
Reason was the helper; Reason is the bar.
When we have passed beyond willings, then we shall have Power.
Effort was the helper; Effort is the bar.
When we have passed beyond enjoyings, then we shall have Bliss.
Desire was the helper; Desire is the bar.
When we have passed beyond individualising, then we shall be real Persons.
Ego was the helper; Ego is the bar.
When we have passed beyond humanity, then we shall be the Man.
The Animal was the helper; the Animal is the bar.
Transform reason into ordered intuition; let all thyself be light. This is thy goal.
Transform effort into an easy and sovereign overflowing of the soul-strength; let all thyself be conscious force. This is thy goal. Transform enjoying into an even and objectless ecstasy; let all thyself be bliss. This is thy goal. Transform the divided individual into the world-personality; let all thyself be the divine. This is thy goal. Transform the Animal into the Driver of the herds; let all thyself be Krishna. This is thy goal."---AUROBINDO

shield of words...

When the weight of sufferings,
Become unbearable,
When the wall of patience,
Starts collapsing,
When there are continuous attacks,
Of pains,
Feelings start crying silently,
These words became the shield,
Poured the words,
In place of tears,
In the poem

see the other self..

We laugh,
not on our happiness,
but on other`s disaster,
We weep,
not on other`s grieves,
but on our grieves,
come from self
come out from cocoon
to see the other self

come with thy light and thy thunder...

When the heart is hard and parched up, come upon me with a shower of mercy.

When grace is lost from life, come with a burst of song.

When tumultuous work raises its din on all sides shutting me out from beyond, come to me, my lord of silence, with thy peace and rest.

When my beggarly heart sits crouched, shut up in a corner, break open the door, my king, and come with the ceremony of a king.

When desire blinds the mind with delusion and dust, O thou holy one, thou wakeful, come with thy light and thy thunder."
— Rabindranath Tagore

death is not extinguishing the light...

"Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come."
— Rabindranath Tagore

life after life.... age after age...

"I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times, in life after life, in age after age forever."
— Rabindranath Tagore

I see the world as a surprise...

This world of God is full of surprises .There are millions of stars , planets and galaxies .There are so many opposite things but all well arranged .There can`t be any big surprises than this but you don`t have eyes to see this .You see only small surprises .I see this world as a surprise.-----Satya Sai Baba

You Know...

I don`t know the intensity of love,
You know,
A flower on the altar,
Don`t know the purpose,
You know,
A zigzag river flowing,
Don`t know the destination,
You know
From where we have come?
And where we have to go?
We don`t know.
But you know

song of the soul..

O! all my near and dear
Why you fear, hear the voice, i`m here
Listen the voice of your soul`s commotion
And behold with rapt devotion

Think, we get what we give
Remember , we die as we live
Be pure at heart , you`re richly insured
Soon all your diseases , grieves, you`ll get cured

Burst your own cocoon and come out as the beautiful butterfly...

There is no help for you outside of yourself; you are the creator of the universe. Like the silkworm you have built a cocoon around yourself…. Burst your own cocoon and come out as the beautiful butterfly, as the free soul. Then alone you will see Truth. ----Swami Vivekananda

do not injure any being...

In what is seen, there should be just the seen;
In what is heard, there should be just the heard;
In what is sensed, there should be just the sensed;
In what is thought, there should be just the thought.

He should not kill a living being, nor cause it to be killed, nor should he incite another to kill.
Do not injure any being, either strong or weak in the world.
Sutta Nipata II,14See More

this is MAYA (illusion)...

Trailing clouds of glory we come says the poet. Not all of us come as trailing clouds of glory however , some of us come as trailing black fogs , there can be no question about that .But every one of us comes into this world to fight , as on a battlefield .We come here weeping to fight our way , as well as we can , and to make a path for ourselves through this infinite ocean of life, forward we go , having long ages behind us and an immense expand beyond.So we go on , till death comes and takes us off the field – victorios or defeated , we do not know , and this is MAYA [ILLUSION]---Swami Vivekananda

develop the mind of equilibrium...

Develop the mind of equilibrium.
You will always be getting praise and blame,
but do not let either affect the poise of the mind:
follow the calmness, the absence of pride.
Sutta Nipata

happiness is your nature..

Happiness is your nature.
It is not wrong to desire it.
What is wrong is seeking it outside
when it is inside.

there is one religion in the world.. that is love..

There is one religion in the world------ that is love.There is one caste in the world ----that is human caste .There is one language in the world----that is language of the heart. There is one law of the world -----law of duty. There is only God exists in the world---that is inside your heart.------OM SATYA SAI BABA

you see many stars in the sky at night...

You see many stars in the sky at night, but not when the sun rises. Can you therefore
say that there are no stars in the heavens during day? O man because you cannot find God
in the days of your ignorance, say not that there is no God.

true self-analysis is the greatest art of progress...

Millions of people never analyze themselves. Mentally they are mechanical products of the factory of their environment, preoccupied with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, working and sleeping, and going here and there to be entertained. They don't know what or why they are seeking, nor why they never realize complete happiness and lasting satisfaction. By evading self-analysis, people go on being robots, conditioned by their environment. True self-analysis is the greatest art of progress."----PARAMHANS YOGANANDA

let your life lightly dance on the edges of time...

"Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf."

give me strength...

Give Me Strength

This is my prayer to thee, my lord---strike,
strike at the root of penury in my heart.

Give me the strength lightly to bear my joys and sorrows.

Give me the strength to make my love fruitful in service.

Give me the strength never to disown the poor or bend my knees before insolent might.

Give me the strength to raise my mind high above daily trifles.

And give me the strength to surrender my strength to thy will with love."
— Rabindranath Tagore

my soul constantly hums...

In waking, eating, working, dreaming, sleeping,
Serving, meditating, chanting, divinely loving,
My soul constantly hums, unheard by any;
God, God, God!
o "God, God, God!"

be kind...

"I could not think of being unkind, even to a mortal enemy. It would hurt me. I see so much unkindness in the world, and there is no excuse for me to add to it. When you love God, and when you see God in every soul, you cannot be mean. If someone behaves hurtfully toward you, think of the best ways to behave lovingly toward him and if he still refuses to be considerate, remain withdrawn for a time, but let no demonstration of unkindness mar your behaviour."

your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars....

"If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life, your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars."
— Rabindranath Tagore

we cannot possess the whole world..

We cannot possess the whole world, and even if we possess that, what does that amount to? Gain the whole world and lose your own soul—what does that amount to? This earth of yours is simply a point in astronomical calculations when we deal with the fixed stars. This earth is dealt with as a mathematical point for a position, but no magnitude.----Swami Ramteerth

arise... transcend thyself...

‎'Arise - transcend thyself.
Thou art man & the whole nature of man is
to become more than himself'---Sri Aurobindo

true love cannot be expressed by words....

True love cannot be expressed by words. This is the very reality which is inexplicable in any way." - Shri Ram Chandra Mission

the happiness of others...

The happiness of one's own heart alone
cannot satisfy the soul;
one must try to include, as necessary to one's own happiness,
the happiness of others.' ---PARAMHANS YOGANANDA

He beats in every heart...

Lovable to all, omnipresent to his dear
Who is hard , who is mild
Who is lord, who is child
He beats in every heart
Always present , always smart
Who in sufferings ever guides
Who for good persons ever sides

spend for others' as naturally as for our own...

Teach us to spend for others’ necessities as naturally as for our own. Since we shudder at even the thought of destitution for ourselves, may we sympathetically help those who in actuality know the pangs of want. -----Paramahansa Yogananda

fragrance abides in the flower...

• As fragrance abides in the flower
As reflection is within the mirror,
So does your Lord abide within you,
Why search for him without?

I am the Nature of Pure Consciousness...

• "[I am] the nature of Pure Consciousness. I am always the same to beings, one alone; [I am] the highest Brahman, which, like the sky, is all-pervading, imperishable, auspicious, uninterrupted, undivided and devoid of action. I do not belong to anything since I am free from attachment.

I am the darkness and the light...

I am the truth and untruth
I am holy and unholy
I am the barbarian and the uncivilized
I am the darkness and the light
I am the killer and the saver
I have two sides
Of the same coin
Let Almighty help me to search

Myself and to let Him join

Om Shanti Om... be at peace...

Asan [ posture]
Cross legged
Sitting neat the silent serene river
Loosing the feeling of body
Limbs ----motionless
Mind blossomed like a lake
Great  joy, peace
Om shanty om

joy and sorrow...

Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.
And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.
And how else can it be?
The deeper that sorrow carves into your being,  the more joy you can contain.
When you are joyous,  look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.
When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
Some of you say, "Joy is greater than sorrow," and others say, "Nay, sorrow is the greater."
But I say unto you, they are inseparable.
Together they come. and when one sits alone with you at your board, remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.
Verily you are suspended like scales between your sorrow and your joy.
Only when you are empty are you at standstill and balanced.
When the treasure-keeper lifts you to weigh his gold and his silver, needs must your joy or your sorrow rise or fall.

Mind... from Bhagwad Geeta..

Mechanism of Mind ......... from Bhagwad Geeta ...... 

    Bhagwad Geeta says:

     It is the mind which  is responsible for the  creation of desires and desires ultimately are  responsible for Soul & Body ties up. All desires are affected by the three gunnas of nature. There may be one or two or maybe all three gunnas of nature in a desire. A desire  is in actuality  a representation of three properties of nature.

    Mind plays an important role in creating a desire. As per Chapter 3 Stanza 39 of Bhagwad Geeta it is said that a desire is the  utmost enemies of a human being;   it is just like a  fire which increases with fuel.

    All desires are materialistic attractions and their traces go to our soul and are responsible for our total behavior and personality.

    Prakriti & Its Three Gunaas – Three Properties of Nature

    Satogunaa... Razogunna...



    Desires Tamogunna...

    Wishes Lust


    Senses Mind Intelligence SOUL

    See how desire is formed in one’s mind. Take a look at above figure. In a human body what is actually exposed to this nature is our five sense organs and sense. Materialistic attractions are there as shown in fig. Our senses (shown in green) perceive all these attractions available around us. Nothing can be happened and no desire can be crated if no mind is there. As stated in Chapter 2 Stanza 67 of Bhagwad Geeta presence of mind is necessary in creating a desire. Mind can play its role even with the help of a single sense.

    As mind comes with a sense; desire becomes strong. As per Chapter 3 Stanza 42 of Bhagwad Geeta mind transmit that information to Intelligence (which is shown in blue in this figure) and the Intelligence after manipulating the information related to that desire; ultimately succeed in gaining acceptance of Soul for that particular desire. So, in this way a desire is formed and transmitted as per above said channel.

    Now If one’s keep his mind aside from senses he may attain state of ‘no-desires’ and can be self-realized.
