Time to Die

 Ikkyu, the Zen master, was very clever even as a boy.

His teacher had a Precious Tea Cup, a rare antique. Ikkyu happened to break this cup and was greatly perplexed. Hearing the footsteps of his teacher, he held the pieces of the cup behind him.

When the master appeared, Ikkyu asked: “Why do people have to die?”

“This is natural,” explained the older man. “Everything has to die and has just so long to live.”

Ikkyu, producing the shattered cup, added:

“It was time for your cup to die.”

Concepts of Paradise and Hell

Zen Stories

The gates of Paradise and Hell

A soldier named Nobushige came to Hakuin, and asked: “Is there really a paradise and a hell?”

“Who are you?” inquired Hakuin.

“I am a samurai,” the warrior replied.

“You, a soldier!” exclaimed Hakuin. “What kind of ruler would have you as his guard? Your face looks like that of a beggar.”

Nobushige became so angry that he began to draw his sword, but Hakuin continued: “So you have a sword! Your weapon is probably much too dull to cut off my head.”

As Nobushige drew his sword Hakuin remarked: “Here open the gates of hell!”

At these words the samurai, perceiving the master’s discipline, sheathed his sword and bowed.

“Here open the gates of paradise,” said Hakuin.

Vision of Known Dimension

Science is a Vision of Known Dimension .

It is a Collective Journey in Time of countless researchers who devoted their entire life to know verifiable results through experiments to explore working and laws of Nature which include Body , Mind , Brain , Atom and Infinite Cosmos .

Science is a Multistory Building with Multiple Wings of different fields of explorations , where every generation of past , present and future Scientists contribute brick by brick 0f new Knowledge .

It is like a Train Journey of collectiveness where each generation adds new compartments of new Inventions , Discoveries , Theories and concepts with powerful Engines of technology for more comforts and Speed .

Science is Microscopic Vision in time and through research and its findings , it has gifted time to human race to live longer but at the same time it can take away the living time of Human race instantly though powerful tools of destruction.

How Wisely we can Utilize it is another Question before all ?

There are several unanswered mysteries of Nature , what was there before Time of Cosmic Creation ,Dark Matter , Dark Energy about Soul and Existence of Universal Cosmic Consciousness ( GOD ) which are beyond realm of Science .

Can Spirituality , The Vision of Unknown Dimension explore into these Mysteries ?.

Love all.
