“When there is no desire,
all things are at peace.”
ram H singhal footnote
Having no desire also is a desire only ?
so what exactly Lao Tzu want us to understand ….. I will try to explain taking help of some mythological stories which have deep scientific understanding of human brain , mind and Psychology
Indian Language Hindi is so simple and scientific ….. one thing good about it is as it is spoken so also is written ……. so are most of the languages of the world
but since Born in India so understand Indian Language Hindi well …… will show you from the Hindi words below essence of wisdom hidden behind these words ….. which will give us help to understand Lao Tzu words of wisdom more precisely.
मन ( man) = there is no equivalent word in English but nearest word is ….MIND …..
but मन is a bridge between body and soul …..
In Indian Mythological story Ramayana it is represented by 10 head
demon RAVANA …. each head representing our senses …..
मनन ( manan )= Analysis of a subject deeply inside brain …..
the micro vision …it like churning the ocean or mind ……
again a epic story Samudra Manthan ……
a symbol of fight between good and bad ….. positive and negative thinking …..
Demons are called ASUR means no harmony ……
Gods are called SUR means harmony ……
and out of this comes is nectar that is AMRITA …..
the timelessness …..
all spiritual practices are tools to find this AMRITA or timelessness ……
and NAMASTE is symbol of respact to timelessness in each other ….
नमन (Naman) = it t true meaning is Surrender
the bow to the wish of divine ……
it is a wisdom word which remains same even we reverse it ……
and is a Key to keep a balance of mind in good or bad situations ……
in India people take good or bad happening in life as wish of God
remain more clam and need much less physiological help .
अमन (aman ) = its true meaning is peace
and happens with balance of mind or being neutral like Referee in a match of life .
and this natural harmony brings peace and puts us at center of our being
….. Lord RAMA in the picture at top puts an arrow in the naval which is the root chakra even in atom the center is neutral zero …..
living with zero is SUNAYATA and that is absolute peace
सुमन (suman) = it means the flower
and absolute peace flowers our soul ….
flower is a symbol of enlightenment ……
softness and sensitivity of heart ……
चमन (Chaman ) = it means Garden of soul flowers …..
fragrance to be in this world …..
living with the fragrance is Enlightenment 360° .
