Tao Te Jing

The Tao Te Jing or Tao Te Ching was written in China roughly 2,500 years ago at about the same time when Buddha expounded the Dharma in India and Pythagoras taught in Greece.

The Tao Te Ching is probably the most influential Chinese book of all times. Its 81 chapters have been translated into English more times than any other Chinese document.

The Tao Te Ching provides the basis for the philosophical school of Taoism, which is an important pillar of Chinese thought. Taoism teaches that there is one undivided truth at the root of all things. It literally means:

tao  = the way
                                     te    =  strength / virtue                
        Jing  = scripture

Wisdom of Aham Brahmasmi

images
I am Brahman, the Absolute?
and people repeat this mantra ….. day in ….day out ….
thinking I am that only…… for years all together …..
in the name of religious or spiritual practices …..
without any confirmation coming from within…..
so then what is a real path ?
Aham Brahmasmi (ah-HUM brah-MAHS-mee) is a Sanskrit sutra
whose English translation is “the core of my being is the
ultimate reality, the root and ground of the universe, the source
of all that exists.”
it is like mother and woman ……
a mother is a woman but woman is not a mother but has a
possibility to be a be a mother ……
so all humans has a equal possibility to be……. that only.
research that possibility….. with sensitive prayers ….
so what is a sensitive prayer?
to make every work a worship ……
perform every ritual of life with love that is true spirituality……
like for me to write this article is a prayer and worship of work….
so should be for all of us even to read it also…..
so even every breath should be a prayer and thanks to cosmic spirit.
we all bring this possibility in our closed hands as seed of love
….. to plant this into our world to make it a tree of eternal happiness ……
this tree of eternal happiness is that only ……..
we may refer as
GOD , ALLAH , OM,
or
name of our choice…..
for a seed to become tree is a transformation …..
so also for a woman to become mother is a transformation ….
and also for a human to became ray of light of this universe is a transformation…..
a seed loses it’s identity to merge in soil to became a tree……
so we have to lose our identity or ego to merge with cosmic identity…..
then only we can say in a silent wishper…..
that I am that only……. or …… Aham Brahmasmi
love all
