Go for a walk

Go for a walk, if it is not too dark. 

Get some fresh air, try to smile. 

Say something kind

To a safe-looking stranger, if one happens by.

Always exercise your heart’s knowing.

You might as well attempt something real

Along this path:

Take your spouse or lover into your arms

The way you did when you first met.

Let tenderness pour from your eyes

The way the Sun gazes warmly on the earth.

Play a game with some children.

Extend yourself to a friend.

Sing a few ribald songs to your pets and plants –

Why not let them get drunk and wild!

Let’s toast

Every rung we’ve climbed on Evolution’s ladder.

Whisper, “I love you! I love you!”

To the whole mad world.

Let’s stop reading about God –

We will never understand Him.

Jump to your feet, wave your fists,

Threaten and warn the whole Universe

That your heart can no longer live

Without real love!

You are that

silence-4

You personify God’s message.
You reflect the King’s face.

There is nothing in the universe that you are not

Everything you want, look for it within yourself-
you are that.

Gratitude Bath

Good and God’s morning ….. 

this morning while walk in the nearby garden , Moon is still there and little dark ….but after some time there comes a time when light and darkness is in equilibrium

It is regarded that prayers made at this time reach directly to the God. Early Morning Shloka (Sloka) is given here which also serves as the first prayer of the day to the almighty.

कराग्रे वसते लक्ष्मिः करमध्ये सरस्वति ।
करमूले तु गोविन्दः प्रभाते करदर्शनम् ॥
Karaagre Vasate Lakssmih Karamadhye Sarasvati |
Karamuule Tu Govindah Prabhaate Karadarshanam ||

Meaning:
The front part of the hands (the finger tips) is credited to Goddess Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth…. 

The middle part or palm is credited to Goddess Saraswati, the Goddess of learning……

and the root (the part of hand near the wrist) to Govinda or divine God … 

So, every morning, one should have a reverent look at one’s hand which represents sincere labor or worship of work ….

what exactly one do is rub both hands lightly and then with both palms cover both eyes ….. rubbing 2 or 3 times the hands …. the effect it has inside is equilibrium between objective brain and subjective brain …..

and this equilibrium of horizontal dimension of time which is linear between past and future and vertical dimension of timelessness brings us to a dimension of now or present which we can feel but can not put into words …. 

to feel this presence without words is true meditation and art of seeing the beauty of divine …..

seeing the first ray of sunlight and as sun comes on the horizon ….our whole family will fold our hands in gratitude to Sun God …..so almost 30 years ago my elder son asked me ….. father does you think Sun is God ?….. 

I replied …..God or no God does not matter …..who ever do good to you is God ….. so for me Sun is God ……. Earth is God ….. every atom is God ….you are God …..your mother is God …

with this sincere prayer for earth …

Samudravasane Devi Parvatastanamandale, 
Vishhnupatni Namastubhyam Paadasparsham Kshamasva Me

I bow to Mother Earth, who has mountains and jungles on her body and whose clothing is made by the ocean. The wife of Lord Vishnu, please pardon me for touching you with my feet. 

what a way to have a Gratitude Bath …Wisdom of scientific and spiritual way of  living civilization …. I call it Sanatana Dharma ……. the Law Of Eternal Zero

with love and gratitude to everything and to all my divine friends and world family …

love all…

Music : flow of life

Good and God’s morning …..

“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” 
― Albert Einstein

how great this spiritual scientist Albert Einstein was ….

music is harmony of time and timeless …..harmony of left and right brain ….. harmony is vibrating at the same frequency as of nature …… harmony is harmony within for a flow of life outside …..

many time people ask why Indian music has raga system which corresponds with every hour of day and night ?….. 

Sun and Moon movements make temperature of day and night in every season of the year and produce flow of air waves at a particular wave length and vibrations …… 

as two eyes vision merge to bring the dimension of depth so is Indian raga music system …..so the vibrations of the artist performance match with the vibrations of air to produce a stereo phonic divine depth experience of timelessness …..

this experience of this timelessness is the purpose of all world music ….and thanks God ….. Indian classical music is truly a music of timelessness …..so being my date to update my wordpress Music blog …….Music = harmony with God.

what ever music I post on my Blog has to have this dimension of timelessness ……. and love music from across the world ….I am a world music citizen …..and my religion is music only ….but before that not to forget ….

See how beautifully….. God has added one more day in our life…….life is a celebrations of everyday as birthday….Happy Birthday to everyone …….with all the good wishes and greetings …..

so start this morning with this clip features a rendition of Basant Mukhari, a morning raga. This is the alap (solo) part of the performance. The concert was recorded on March 9th, 1991 in Bern Switzerland. Krishnaji is accompanied on the tabla by Jatindra Thakur, and on tanpura by Gunther Becker…

Flow of Silence

Darshan = Visual language of Silence

God is a visual language of silence

images

One afternoon after lunch as I was coming out from my friend’s home

in Saket in New Delhi noticed a very fine and famous monument ……..

Qutab Minar  ….a UNESCO World Heritage site .. …. 

association of brain memory suggest that a very dear friend

and a fine photo artist has a studio near by …….

so decided to call as I visit him once in a blue moon …….

he was delighted to hear me and asked me to come so visited him …..

reaching his office ……. looked at each other  for few moments ……

there were a TV crew to interview him

and

I also was pressed for time for a music concert in the evening ……..

asked his permission to leave so he asked …..

why did I visited him for such short time ?……

usually it will last long hours ……

so replied ….. for your DARSHAN …….

so he asked what is DARSHAN …….

replied him …… visual language of silence …..

krishnabalaram

Darśana (also Darśan or Darshan; Sanskrit: दर्शन) is a term meaning “sight”

In the sense “to see with reverence and devotion,”

and could refer either to a vision of the divine

or to being in the presence of a highly revered person.

“By doing darshan properly a devotee develops affection for God,

and

God develops affection for that devotee.”

Darshan is ultimately difficult to define,

since it is an event in consciousness—

an interaction in presence between devotee and God/guru;
or
between devotee and image or sculpture,

which focuses and calls out the consciousness of the devotee.

In either event, a heightening of consciousness or spirituality is the intended effect.

Saraswati_by_Raja_Ravi_Varma

Hari Anant Hari Katha Ananta

Kahahi Sunahi Bahu Vidhi Sab Santa

Lord  (Hari) is infinite (Ananta),

and

so are the stories (Katha) about his glory

All learned seers (Santa) narrate (kahahi) these

and

listen (sunahi) to them in many different ways (bahu vidhi)

ram footnote :

Since all creative languages comes out from silence ……

everyone has own choice and medium of expression and explanations…….

so have your own language …… it can be dance , vocal music , instrumental music , painting , poetry , writing , watching , talking , walking and any thing of our own choice …… all as prayer of divine ….. all with silence ……. all in totality …… all in oneness …… to understand this visual language ….. as

सत्यम शिवम सुंदरम =

Satyam Shivam Sundram 

 which means God is truth …… truth is God ……

and

God is beauty …….. the essence of visual language of silence 

love all.

Do you know how beautiful You are ?

Saints Bowing in the Mountains
Do you know how beautiful you are?
I think not, my dear.

For as you talk of God,
I see great parades with wildly colorful bands
Streaming from your mind and heart,
Carrying wonderful and secret messages
To every corner of this world.

I see saints bowing in the mountains
Hundreds of miles away
To the wonder of sounds
That break into light

From your most common words.
Speak to me of your mother,
Your cousins and your friends.
Tell me of squirrels and birds you know.

Awaken your legion of nightingales – 

Let them soar wild and free in the sky
And begin to sing to God.
Let’s all begin to sing to God!

Do you know how beautiful you are?
I think not, my dear,
Yet Hafiz
Could set you upon a Stage
And worship you forever!

Drunk with God

At night we fall into each other with such grace.

When it’s light, you throw me back
like you do your hair.

Your eyes now drunk with God,

breath

Mine with looking at you,
One drunkard takes care of Another.
