Having no desire also is a desire only ?

“When there is no desire,

all things are at peace.” 

-Lao Tzu

(570-490 BC)

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

is

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

so

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° .

lo

Love All.

Thursday Zen notes

Spiritual Science of Namaste

Mind ‘ is the bridge between right and left brain,

soul and body ,

subjective and objective,

emotional intelligence and logical intelligence ,

space and time,

vertical dimension (beyond time) and horizontal dimension (with in time ) ,

“Meditation” is a science to fill this gap between past and future, to experience present.

Namaste Ji,

Law of Zero is the philosophy of life expressed in simple terms that touches one deeply, Urging compassion, simplicity and humanity it reminds us that love is a boundless treasure that we should share generously.

I treasure the one line note you gave me in IHC ( India Habitat Center ) in 2014 , indeed the divine blessings bring grace into our lives.

May God bless you with energy to explore more frontiers.

आदरणीय राम एच. सिंघल जी

फोटोग्राफी के प्रति आपके समर्पण भाव ने Own zerO को तैयार किया। इसमें समाहित 125 तस्वीरों को मैंने गौर से देखा…जितनी बार भी देखा… उतनी बार फिर से देखने की ख्वाहिश मन में उठती रही। यही कारण रहा कि विश्व फोटोग्राफी दिवस पर मुझे मिली इस किताब को मैं अब तक सैंकड़ों बार देख चुका हूं, वरना तो अमूमन इससे पहले कई सार्वजनिक कार्यक्रम के फोटो मैंने देखे हैं जिन्हें देखने में मुझे कभी समय नहीं लगा।

ऐसा पहली बार है आपकी फोटोग्राफी को देखने के बाद ये पता चला कि एक तस्वीर को हजारों शब्दों के जरिये भी बखान नहीं किया जा सकता…, जितनी बार देखोगे वह उतनी ही बार  आपको  नया दृष्टिकोण प्रदान करती है। आपकी फोटोग्राफी हमारे आसपास घट रही घटनाओं, प्रकृति, पेड़-पौधे, पक्षी, बाग-बगीचे, सड़कें और यहां तक कि पार्किंग में खड़ी कार तक में विषय ढूंढ लेती है जो आपकी व्यापक सोच का उदाहरण भी है।

पुस्तक में 64 नंबर की फोटो में दो कारों के बीच में जिस तरह आपने अनुभव को दर्शाया है उससे आप एक मेंटर की भूमिका भी निभा जाते हो। यहां स्लोगन में तस्वीर देखने वाले को मार्गदर्शन का काम भी आपने किया है। “हमारा शरीर एक कार की तरह है और हम खुद एक ड्राइवर हैं, यदि हमें यात्रा को आसान बनाना है तो कार को मेंटेन रखना होगा”… ऐसे स्लोगन हर तस्वीर को शब्द प्रदान कर रहे हैं… जो एक फोटो पत्रकार की सोच का भी प्रदर्शन है।

इसके लिए आपका आभार और आपके फोटोग्राफी मेंटर महेश स्वामी जी को भी धन्यवाद, जिन्होंने आपको प्रकृति की मौन भाषा को समझाया और कैमरे के जरिये बयां करने के लिए प्रोत्साहित किया।

धन्यवाद

Kiss God

When no one is looking
and I want to kiss God,
