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?

Traveler of Time

Mind is a Monkey jumping all the times (24 X 7) from one to many branches of desires .

Claws of Time rust and dust everybody .

Today during Morning walk on the side of walking track , saw many bottles of beer , one of which also had a picture of Monkey .

Intoxication is a Temporary Bail from the Cage of Mind .

Be a Traveler of Time intoxicated with Beauty of Timeless Nature.

Love all.

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

Syed Abdullah Shah Gilani, known as Bulleh Shah, was a Punjabi philosopher and He was a Sufi mystic poet and is universally regarded as “The father of Punjabi enlightenment”

Compass of Public Speaking

Compass of Public Speaking was my subject in a WhatsApp Group conference in 2017.

S at 6 am on this picture stands for Start of Subject with a Cup of South Indian Coffee so start your talk on the chosen subject with warmness and explaining subject like sipping from the cup of Subject Knowledge.

So The presentation of subject should be well practiced with rehearsals before putting relevant data clearly so eloquently which should give understanding to everyone present in the Hall.

W at 9 am is like spread of breakfast which should be explanation in details about Working of Subject in past and in Present times .

N at 12 am is like Lunch with new dishes . in third part of speech we should bring to the table New inventions , discoveries , technology , improvements and future potential in the talked subject .

E at 3 pm is like serving the Cake of Essence . it should be put on the plate with care with chosen ingredients of honesty and Digestible wisdom .

End your presentation thanking all listeners for their Attention and Time .

so four parts are :

S ( South ) = Subject

W ( West ) = Working

N ( North ) = New Ideas and Inventions.

E ( East ) = Essence or Fragrance of Wisdom

One can corelate it with time dial to remember the parts of speech giving them the context of Time which is 6 am to 3 pm with time numbers like done in Method of Loci.

Love all.

How Does the Method of Loci Work?

The method of loci involves a mental strategy of imagining yourself placing items around a house in different rooms The items that you mentally place in the different rooms are the pieces of information that you are trying to learn, such as a list of things that you need to remember in a certain order but one can utilize the clock face like 6,7,8 am for parts of Subject , 9,10,11am for working , 12 , 1 , 2 pm for New Ideas and 3,4, 5 pm for Essence of talk .

In order to recall each item, visualize yourself walking back through that Clock Dial or rooms (or along that path) and then picking up or passing by each item that you placed there, thus triggering your recall for that information.
