Language of silence

Enlightenment = conversations with God

A “pagan” asked Buddha, “With words, with silence, will you tell me (the Way)?”

Buddha silently kept meditating.

The “pagan” bowed and thanked the Buddha, saying, “With the compassion you have cleared away the clouds of my mind and have made me enter into the awakening.”

After he left, Ananda asked the Buddha what he had attained.

The Buddha said, “A good horse runs even a shadow of the whip.”

Moon light is sensitive and also has a beauty , the grace in which one can remain all night, sleep under it and has a relationship in India and given a name CHANDAMAMA which means the brother of the mother , and there are songs which are sung by children about it while playing or dancing .

Life Partner

mitu

Life is a journey and destination together so is a life partner , 

What exactly is a life partner ?

Life partner is a meaning to life , a meaning which expands our horizon to look beyond physical horizons , a process of togetherness to travel in time totality  , a hope and strength during  roller coaster of fortunes , a companion and compass to show and guide on the unknown frontiers .

Ram been lucky to find a fine lady whom I call “Mitu ” off course her name is Mithlesh and our journey of togetherness started on 15 Feb 1976 and today we complete 41 years of blissful bondage to each other .

In our Indian tradition marriage is a sacred knot which one ties not just for one life but for seven more life to come , but this feeling only becomes true when one looks beyond physical realm into spiritual reality , 

There is a beautiful tradition of Hindu trinity Gods that they all have tied only with one life partner , Like Goddess Laxmi with Lord Vishnu , Goddess Parvati with Lord Shiva and Goddess Saraswati with Lord Brahma .

Same tradition percolates in mind , heart and souls of all loving couples of this world .

we are one such couple who wants to meet each other again and again and again .

Love all.

p.s. ….  life is a flow of time where we start two in a boat and as we flow with time our children and grand children make this life meaningful , happy and blissful.
