Born to die

Good and God’s morning ……. “Born To Die” 

this beautiful song in beautiful voice of great artist Donna Summer …… there are several good numbers but always listen one I liked the most in my college years ……

who ever is born will die …… death is a eternal truth …… and a great teacher ….. 

for Buddha ….. after confronting basic stages of life

 Siddhartha  thus led a princely life for 29 years in Kapilavastu.

One day he decided to go and meet his subjects.

There for the first time in his life he saw an old man.

When Channa his charioteer told him “He is an old man.

All of us will one day get old and die.

Your father, mother, me, your wife everyone will become old one day.”

Then he saw a diseased man, a decaying corpse and an ascetic.

Depressed by these sights he decided to overcome

death, illness and old age by becoming an ascetic …

After nearly starving himself to death but finding no enlightenment,

Siddhartha found the Middle Way.

He sat under the Bodhi (Pipal) tree in Bodh Gaya

and

decided not to get up until he found enlightenment.

He is said to have attained enlightenment under the Bodhi tree

on the first full moon in the month of May.

That day is celebrated as Buddha Poornima

and

transforming Siddhartha as BUDDHA ….. the awakened one 

For young boy  Nachiketa …… dialouge with death God ….YAMA 

YAMA told Nachiketa, ” Dear child, I have offended you by keeping you waiting

for three days.

To wash my sin I request you to ask for three boons.”

Nachiketa declared, “My first wish is ……

when I return home may my father welcome me lovingly.

My second wish is …….

 to grant me the knowledge by which I can be worthy of living in the heavens.

My third and last wish is …..

to grant me Atmagnam -knowledge of the atma ( Soul ) .

” Yama granted the first two boons immediately

and

tried to convince Nachiketa to give up his third wish.

He offered him gold, pearls, coins, horses elephants

and

even the happiness of Swarg -heaven instead.

“No, I do not wish for anything else,” replied Nachiketa firmly.

Finally, Yama granted him the third boon too,

and

Nachiketa was enlighnered with the knowledge of the atma ( Soul ) .

Nachiketa inspires us to be kind to all creatures,

to respect one’s parents,

to be strong willed to do something one has decided,

even in the face of difficulties and obstacles

and

to seek for eternal happiness.

death makes us understand the value of life ……

and to understand our true identity which is beyond birth and death …..

beyond creation and destruction …… beyond time and timeless …..

beyond light and darkness …..

beyond known and unknown dimension but within love of no dimension ……

love of no dimension is God…… we may refer as OM , ALLAH, or name of our choice .

My life was changed in one breath from God.

I feel lucky today

 

Good and God’s morning ……. I feel lucky today ….. listening this song in wonderful voice of Mary Chapin Carpenter ……. like this song and in lyrics there are some beautiful compositions …….

“It only took a minute for my finger to find
My daily dose of destiny, under my sign “

I feel lucky, brrrrr, I feel lucky, yeah
Think I’ll flip a coin, I’m a winner either way
Mmmmmm, I feel lucky today

In life every human is curious about future  

so every news paper and life style magzines has a section for this ……

so predicting future is an astrological science as well as a profession

to give hope for better things in life …….

to my surprise all important events happened without any body predicting ……

so daily dose of destiny is …….  I feel lucky today .

 

 Life is a line of time vibrating

and to walk on time is like a coin standing on thin edge ……

standing on this thin edge is winner either way …….

be a winner everyday ……. love all

I think that every new record is a chance to…

I think what it is for me is ….my heart and soul at that moment in time…

I’ve always felt that just being able to make a record is a privilege.

Mary Chapin Carpenter

 American singer, songwriter and musician.

rumi spiritual quotes = 9

Love = tree of happiness


Before you speak,

let your words pass through three gates.

At the first gate, ask yourself, ‘Is it true?’

At the second ask, ‘Is it necessary?’

At the third gate ask ‘Is it kind?

 
Before you speak,
let your words pass through three gates.
At the first gate, ask yourself, ‘Is it true?’
At the second ask, ‘Is it necessary?’
At the third gate ask ‘Is it kind?

old sweet beggar

Whispers of fragrant breeze

“This
Path to God
Made me such an old sweet beggar.

I was starving until one night
My love tricked God Himself
To fall into my bowl.

Now Hafiz is infintely rich,
But all I ever want to do
Is keep emptying out
My emerald-filled
Pockets
Upon
This tear-stained
World.”
