Needless to ask

Zen Meditation 101: The History and Principles of Zen

1. जाति न पूछो साध की , पूछ लीजिये ग्यान।
मोल करो तरवार का , पड़ा रहन दो म्यान।

हिंदी व्याख्या – यहाँ कबीर जी कहते हैं कि हमें साधु की जाति नहीं पूछनी चाहिए।  अगर पूछना ही है तो उसका ज्ञान पूछना चाहिए।  उसी प्रकार हमें तलवार का ही मोल-भाव करना चाहिए अथार्थ हमें तलवार को ही मुख्य मानना चाहिए न कि म्यान को।  कहने का भाव है व्यक्ति के असली गुण को ही पूछना चाहिए।

English Explanation and Meaning – Kabir says that we must not ask a saint its Nationality or Caste. If we have to know anything about him that must be his knowledge. In the same way, we must bargain for the sword without giving importance to sheath. In other words,  we must give importance to internal quality.

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.

Classical is a Temple

“If Music is a Place — then Jazz is the City, Folk is the Wilderness, Rock is the Road, Classical is a Temple.”– Vera Nazarin

Vera Nazarian is a two-time Nebula Award Finalist, a Dragon Award 2018 Finalist author, award-winning artist, publisher of Norilana Books, musician, philosopher, and creator of wonder.

Raga Jaunpuri is associated with Jaunpur where the raga is said to have evolved – at least that is what folklore says.

Jaunpur was an independent Sultanat in the 15th century which had a reputation of being a city dedicated to learning (ilm ka shahar). It was considered second only to Varanasi as a hub of music and musicians.

Raga Jaunpuri is a late morning raga.

My choice for Raga Jaunpuri is Sanjeev Abhayankar and Venkatesh Kumar.

Dimension of NOW

Vision of Amazement

Newspapers for different choices of the family are there on the table , Firstly wanted to glance at Headlines before going for the morning Walk .

but stepped out from the Web of NEWS which is knowledge of Time which has gone but entered into Heartlines which is to see everything NEW with a fresh Vision of Amazement while Walking with Inner Silence.

when you are free from Past and Future you are in a Dimension of NOW

NOW = Notion of Wholeness.

Enlightenment 360 degree is …….. Wholeness with Everything. .
