Tao Te Ching: Chapter :17 : Rulers
The best rulers are scarcely known by their subjects;
The next best are loved and praised;
The next are feared;
They have no faith in their people,
And their people become unfaithful to them.
When the best rulers achieve their purpose
Their subjects claim the achievement as their own.

the holy people and their early followers were like gardeners who had to work hard to keep their respective gardens clean and nice and if same trend was to continue we should have had a world without any religious boundaries but it did not happen …… let us examine the reasons now …..
with the passage of time and after the enlightened masters left this earth ….in few centuries changes started coming and the following gardeners became watchman …..
so first the walls were raised around their respective gardens or religions ……. uniformed their respective followers with set of rituals …… created massive religious structures and establishments to mobilize mass following …..
and in the name of spreading their respective religions war were fought and forced conversion of religions happened in last centuries all across the world ….and a misunderstanding is even created today so hate brews between different religions …….
but with the advent of internet … communications between humans all across the world and expressions of our inner voice is happening and millions of humans are spreading the message of universal love ……
so we are coming to a new age and as a open heart open mind humans we should not hate anybody anywhere just because they belong to a different religion …..
All the religion which exists in the name of religion are philosophies, natural love which exists without name is religion.
Love is universal truth.
make love as our religion …..
(c) ram0ram ……. freedom to right copy and share
Thursday is a day to take a dip in the ocean of wisdom and Chinese enlightened master Lao Tzu is one such ocean …..
what I like about writing of Lao Tzu is essence of wisdom …… in few words of silence one has fragrance of timeless understanding ……as we are contemplating on verse 17 that is on rulers and qualities of a ruler ……
In India it was a tradition for a prince to go for spiritual understanding before becoming the king and in many cases Like Lord Mahavir or Lord Buddha both princes found the inner kingdom of oneness with cosmic spirit and decided to spread message of love , peace and compassion and happiness .
