Poem of Divine

Life is gift of divine. 

Nature is the Poem of Divine.

Live a poem…. if heart is there.

Trace a poem… if mystery is there.

Embrace a poem….. if soul is there.

Enjoy a poem …. if music of all three is there.

Enjoying this music of divine in every walk of life is true Meditation.

Meditation is a science to live in present with open eyes.

Wonder what people do sitting in yoga posture with closed eyes?

If you have answer ….. post them. 

Will love to know.

love all.

Eveready : Last word of an Enlightened Mother

 It is certainly not an overstatement that Torch and battery cells and Eveready have been synonymous with each other in India for over a century.

So in Year 1957 we also had a torch and batteries as a precious possession in our large family of many brothers and sisters .  

one day as I was cleaning the torch and cells…. my mother asked what is on the cells written and what is this logo ?

so explained her in simple understandable words as she could do primary education only.

Eveready = Cat ever ready to drink Milk ( it was very common in 1950 – 1960 that cats will drinks milk from the open kitchens as refrigerators were not there . )

Asked her one day on her habit of regular bath year around morning and one before going to bed ?

This body is like a car from the God and I drive it everyday so always keep it clean inside and outside

Do not know ….when God want it back…..

So I am also like your battery cells….. Eveready

was her reply .

In Summer of year 2001 , me and my wife travelled to New York USA. as my elder son was graduating from Parsons School of Design . My wife decided to stay back with my son to travel around USA. both returned to India in first week of June 2001.

When she went to touch my mother’s feet for her blessings …..my mother told her….now you have come so it is my time to go and now I am already 82 so invite all family for Lunch on 7 June 2001.

on 7 th morning she was well but was in contemplation . At around 1 o’clock she asked every one to go and have lunch in Main Building in our Haveli.

….. and when all returned from the lunch it was almost her lunch time .

so I went and touched  her hands to enquire about lunch   and she opened her eyes looked at me…..looked at the picture of Lord Vishnu on the wall and told me……eveready…..and closed her eyes for ever.

In my opinion she was truly a spiritual and a person of 360° Enlightenment.

with tears of love on Her Death Anniversary as per Hindu Calendar.

Great saint Kabir’s bhajans ….Jhini jhini Chadriya….in the voice of Great maestro Kumar Gandharva’s eternal voice truly is picture of Her life.

Love all.

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.
