Soldiers of Humanity

Once, a division of the Japanese army was engaged in a sham battle, and some of the officers found it necessary to make their headquarters in Gasan’s temple.

Gasan told his cook: “Let the officers have only the same simple fare we eat.”

This made the army men angry , as they were used to very deferential treatment.

One came to Gasan and said: “Who do you think we are?

We are soldiers, sacrificing our lives for our country.

Why don’t you treat us accordingly?”

Gasan answered sternly: “Who do you think we are?

We are Soldiers of Humanity, aiming to save all sentient beings .”

Love All.

Whom shall I tell ?

Translation:

by Kartar Singh Duggal

It’s all in One contained.
Understand the One and forge the rest.
Shake off your ways of an apostate pest
Leading to the grave to hell and to torture
Rid your mind of dreams of disaster
This is how is the argument maintained
It’s all in One contained.

He who believes, he alone has known
Everyone else is floundering
All the wrangling came to an end
When Bulleh came to town.
Whom shall I tell?

Secrets of religion

Na main bheth mazhab da paaya
Ne main aadam havva jaaya
Na main apna naam dharaaya
Na vich baitthan na vich bhaun

Secrets of religion, I have not known
From Adam and Eve, I am not born
I am not the name I assume
Not in stillness, nor on the move

Bulleya Ki jaana main Kaun
Bulleya! to me, I am not known

Bulleya Ki Jaana Main Kaun! – Happy Ho

Finance and Fiancée

Finance and fiancée both are Handle with Care Subjects.

Finance Management of earning is learning.

Everyone who wants to live with the fiancée happy life , should learn it at the stage of friendship only .

Finance , Family , Food ,and future all are important matters which need careful budgeting , spending and saving .

Quarterly Finance management in my view should be that you divide your earning in four quarters .

First quarter for Home 0r housing .

Second Quarter for Food .

Third Quarter for Family (Clothing and children education and misc }

Fourth Quarter as Saving

Yesterday my younger Son who explained me difference between ” Access to Money “ and ” Excess of Money ”

Credit Card is an ” Access to Money ” and Debit Card is an ” Excess of Money ”

Careful budgeting , Careful spending with in Budget in cash or with Debit card and extra careful saving is key to happy Life with fiancée as loving wife.

Availing Access to money in any means is mortgaging of one’s future , live within the present means is freedom of Life.

Be in Excess of Money yet with strict budgeting and Be with your Honey happily ever after.

Treat Finance as Fiancée for better Future.

Love All.

Morgan Freeman

Life is a fair energy and Love is value energy and when we love life than fair energy become freedom and wholeness in Life.

My movie time is 60 minutes everyday for 3 days for a one good actor and for last two days it has been Legendary Actor Morgan Freeman ,

so in a year time I watch good 100 movies of 100 best Actors and Actresses of Western Cinema.

Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen – that stillness becomes a radiance. Morgan Freeman

We humans are more concerned with having than with being. Morgan Freeman

I can say that life is good to me. Has been and is good. So I think my task is to be good to it.

How do you be good to life?

You live it.

Morgan Freeman

Morgan Freeman performance as the chauffeur Hoke Colburn to Miss Daisy (Jessica Tandy) that really put him on the movie star map. 

it’s a really well made film with wonderful acting performances from Jessica Tandy, who won an Oscar for her role as Miss Daisy

Driving Miss Daisy won four Oscars and was nominated for another five, including Best Actor for Freeman, though he didn’t win.

A fine dialogue from the movie

“- Daisy Werthan: You know your letters don’t you?
– Hoke Colburn: Oh yeah, yeah I know my abc’s pretty good, just can’t read. 
– Daisy Werthan: Stop saying that you’re making me mad! If you know your letters you can read. You just don’t know you can read. 

The last scene is truly heart touching , if you have not watched than do watch it , it is a value for time Movie,

Flute of Divine

Breath in Love ,

Breath out Happiness ,

Be a Flute of Divine.

Love All.

(c) ram H singhal

No
Conflict
When the flute is playing
For then I see every movement emanates
From God’s
Holy
Dance.

 by Hafiz
(1320 – 1389) 

On a simple level, the flute is like a plaintive, purified human voice, calling out — an expression of longing.

The flute is also hollow, empty, and it is precisely because of this emptiness that its sound is so pure.

On a more esoteric level, each human being is a living flute. The hollow reed is the sushumna, the central spiritual channel that parallels the spine. The holes of the flute are the chakras that open out from the sushumna.

Living music is produced when the breath of God flows through this hollow reed, producing bliss, producing the sound of God. The sound heard is a soft hum or quiet ringing which gently draws us into the divine embrace.

Love all.

Power of Love

पोथी पढ़ि पढ़ि जग मुआ, पंडित भया न कोय,
ढाई आखर प्रेम का, पढ़े सो पंडित होय।

“Pothi padhi padi jag mua, pandit bhaya na koi

Dhai akhar prem ka padhe so pandit hoi”

The one who understands the power of love has achieved wisdom, and wisdom may not be measured by the books one reads.

Listen to Popular Kabir Songs by Very popular Abida Parveen.
Listen to Gyanita performing and explaining a beautiful song by Saint Kabir “Maya Taji Na Jaye Avadhu”. This song may make you think about life

Love All.

Neither or Nor ?

Na main andar ved kitaabaan
Na vich bhangaan na sharaabaan
Na vich rindaan masat kharaabaan
Na vich jaagan na vich saun

Not in the holy Vedas, am I
Nor in opium, neither in wine
Not in the drunkard’s intoxicated craze
Neither awake, nor in a sleeping daze

Bulleya Ki jaana main Kaun
Bulleya! to me, I am not known

Bulleya Ki Jaana Main Kaun! – Happy Ho
