Hello Friends

I am so sorry ,writing after long time, lots of things happened in the mean time, as I am moving towards more Krishan consciousness, a lot is happening and I needed time to absorb it. My personal life is changed to the level ,that in addition to leaving caffeine, I have left eggs, also onion and garlic as Krishna doesn’t like it. This is all to please Krishna. This is the result due to reading more gita, things are changing so fast. All I can say that this also due to listening my Guru Mother Shri Radhika KripaJi as well.

My obeisance to her.

Those who are Hindi speakers, I would definitely recommend to listen her lectures on you tube, she also sometimes does zoom lessons in English, check her Facebook page. The chapter 5 and 6 are elaborate explanation of Karma and Dhyana(focus) Yoga. Krishna explained to Arjuna that there are numerous types of yoga but if all this not moving towards to Supreme consciousness, then you will just end up in hard work all the time.

Yoga means process of linking oneself with Supreme. Such person should know his constitutional position as the living entity and act accordingly. The living entity has no separate identity, we are marginal energy of Supreme.

Life without strategy end up in hard work.

All types are simply useless, if someone doesn’t realise what is his eternal quality which is ” we are eternal servants of Krishna”.

Some lines from Bhagwad-Gita Chapter 6 Text 36

For one whose mind is unbridled, self realisation is difficult work. But he whose mind is controlled and who strives by appropriate means is assured of success.

Means : Trying to practice yoga while engaging the mind in material enjoyment is trying to ignite a fire while pouring water on it. Yoga without mental control is waste of time, such show may be material lucrative but useless as far as spiritual realisation is concerned, that’s why one must control mind by engaging in loving service of Supreme Lord.

Insight Thoughts

This post is mainly related to application of all knowledge gathered by the chapter 3. Before I move to chapter 4, it is important to reflect insights. The main application advantage of reading Geeta so far is that you learn to see the full framework/picture. You are no longer carried away from attached feelings all the time, you are fully convinced on the strong understanding. But this seems to be easy to say rather than done. It takes continuous practice each and every day.

At present I am feeling that moments are clearly communicating that you need to tear off the comfort layer, get more active, don’t waste a single moment not living in active consciousness, by the greatest tool is be firm in your regular spiritual day practices. The result is the holy sound/talk inside you become so strong enough to break your limited perspective, it is like falling deck of cards. I never thought in my life, that I would come across such a strong purification process, as a result I have recently left tea/coffee, fully caffeine free now.

You would think that what is the relation of caffeine?

As I am following daily spiritual practices ,it is bringing a transition phase, that’s why my queries have gone up, I wanted to know more about Krishna, what are special qualities makes him so popular? I came across a very influential speaker Nitaisevini Devi Dasi. Check the link http://nitaisevinimataji.in/

Her lecture on 64 qualities of Krishna part3 on YouTube, initial 13 min video made me so melting like that I started crying .It is explained so beautifully that Krishna is so merciful that every single day he forgives, on small effort for him, he gives back so much in return and for him we can’t leave caffeine, garlic/onion, non-veg diet, so small changes. These are simply hurdles in elevating consciousness, we just need to eat only that much to keep body healthy supporting our consciousness, and immediately I decided that I would leave caffeine. Since then there is no going back, I am enjoying transition the herbal teas.

Some lines from chapter 4

As a blazing fire turns firewood to ashes, O arjuna, so does the fire of knowledge burn to ashes all reactions to material activities.

Insight Thoughts

“As It Is”

As I am reading more and more Bhagwad Gita , I am becoming more enlightened person. This book is simply I feel a “Love letter from Krishna”. My usual habit used to be always jumping to chapters not reading Introduction part but this time don’t know I was inclined towards first read Introduction part. I am so glad that I read and understood the importance of taking book in right comprehension guidelines. The overall summary is that I start with first is that “Bhagwad -gita is not an ordinary book, it has power to change our conditioned thinking.

Introduction introduces meaning of Santana-eternal. The supreme lord and we are eternal and combination association of the Supreme Lord and the living entities is the perfection of human life.

Every living being is rendering service to another living being in various capacities that’s why living entity enjoys life. For eg mother serves son, wife serves husband, the husband serves wife and so on . The book intelligently concludes that rendering of service is the constant companion of living being, it is eternal religion of living being, and yet we claim belong to particular faith like Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, labelling is non-eternal.

Factually we are related to Supreme Lord in service, the supreme lord is the enjoyer & we are his servitors. Krishna clearly says that “Arjuna(warrior & friend) ,simply just fix your mind on me, with your activities, intelligence dedicated to me , you will simply be free from all sins, pious karma concluding free from hell/heaven desires and you will attain me.

Krishna’s whole communication pattern was not to discourage from doing karma ,as one has to work in the world but offering fruits of karma to Krishna you are simply free from ups & downs & become eligible to be in supreme abode i.e. Peaceful & Happy.

Hari Bol.

Each day when I wake up, I just wake up in happiness that what more insights, what more revelations this book will give me that will just transform things. I hope you enjoyed this blog post. I simply wish the way “Gita” is bringing daily dose of happiness, it brings in your life as well, why to wait for this beautiful song from Krishna for us.

“As It Is”

I wonder that when I started this journey “As It Is”, that moment/day must be very special moment because it has taken an extremely beautiful and meaningful turn. I am reading this book at present and I am loving it. But why this book, it matches to my to the concept/philosophy that I have been exploring and the most important thing is that I clearly felt that life is too short and why not do that you really care for yourself and for others.

After battling for about 10 days with covid-19 infection, along with my husband was simply an eye opener. At one point, I felt that “Why this to me “? I again paused and listened the voice inside .”This could have been worse, at present you are in this much fitness that you can cook and clean”. This is not on ordinary situation, this deadly virus has taken millions of lives around the whole, businesses have turned upside down and yet you have survived so well.

To be very honest, this disease brought so much purification in my life, that I never thought of before. I feel that this is the right time to read the pre-ordered book and spread the awareness, that we are truly eternal entity. At present, I am reading the introduction part which is clear explanation that we are eternal beings.

Faith can change, a Hindu may change faith to become Christian or Muslim or vice-versa but in all circumstances the change of religious faith doesn’t affect the eternal occupation of rendering services to others.

I will be bring more good points (attached with possibly a story).Till then, I am attaching the two links to know more about book distribution or to order one. I hope visiting these links will provide will give the answers that you are looking for.

Devotion Versus Knowledge:What is the Difference?

What is difference between devotion to God and the knowledge?

Answer: Devotion is like a radiating gem and Knowledge is a Lamp.Both of them light the darkness but lamp always need oil to keep it going but Devotion doesn’t need anything to support it.I learned this from watching my favourite TV Series-Ramayana.I don’t know what’s happening to me,I am everyday feeling attraction towards to know Ramayana story more.I have started reading the book,which have been lying in the corner for 4 years and must say cherishing it.

This lockdown time definitely has its own challenges,not easy to adapt a new way of living,but I surely somewhere feels like that this time was somewhere hidden,or was under my thinking carpet.

I just wish May Lord bless everyone’s consciousness to go the level to bring simplicity,empathy and lots more qualities that we are seeking.

Now It is Movie Time Hurray

I feel that I am done now from the book review and moving to Movie review would be as exciting as book review.

Why I decided to jump from book to Movie review?

Well I completely feel moving to other side of Arts which is media is necessary for me because I am also great admirer of different messages,I learn from movies.

Can’t wait to explain more,so excited.

I would be reviewing “Parmanu” in my first post,as I recently watched,also noted very interesting points.

Yipeeeee!!!!!!

“Come Out,come away”

When I sit in the morning outside on the deck of my boat,before the majestic purple of the mountains crowned with the morning light,I know that I am eternal that I am ananda-rupam.

kashmir-compressor

My true form is not that of flesh and blood,but of joy.In the world where we habitually live,the self is so predominant that everything in it is of our own making and we starve because we have to feed upon ourselves. To know the truth is to become true;there is no other way.When we live the life of self,it is not possible for us to realize truth.

“Come out,come away.” This is the urgent cry we have in our soul-the cry in the blood of the chick,living in its shell.

These lines are from the book “Letters to Friend” by Rabindranath Tagore from page no 71 when he was in Srinagar Kashmir(October 1915).I don’t have any words or story to take a dig ,just a prevailing silence and willing to share with the readers.

Feeling Blessed to be part of such a old Book(Letters to Friend)

This book is very old and Tagore’s hand writing along with an old stamp is absolute bonus ,feeling so lucky to borrow from the local library.

20191019_232431

I must say this book is deep work of consciousness.The writer’s acceptance of his inner and outer world with full grace,glorified situations on positive note every single time,with his all time favourite companionship of nature.So far I have read only around 40 pages but I can feel an intense stillness which made its path through acceptance and deep realisation of life.Before the actual chapters begin,there is an essay on personality of Tagore gives insight how he found his bonding with nature in its fullest expression.These lines showcases,how he witnessed silently

“Sometimes I would pass many months alone without speaking ,till the voice grew thin & weak due to lack of use”.

The essay summarises influencing factors and how Tagore’s consciousness progressed towards using literature for country’s well-being resulted in opening a school in the lap of nature named as “Shantiniketan”.This video gives a good presentation of the place’s art work with Bengali language in the background.

This line touched me“I know that I must pass through death.God Knows it is the death-pang that is tearing open my heart”.Tagore had given death a liberating and an eternal truth face,clearly reflects how much he was in pain when surrounded by death of family members.As an artist,he took death as clay and moulded completely into a different shape.

I completely feel that I would be hunting lots of words to do full justice with the book review in the next post.

Slow pace but i am jealous with writer

 

One thing is absolutely clear that this book had been written in very much free time,heavily garlanded with poetry that makes me very jealous of writer simply because I love to feel time.The sluggish pace of story revealed that fragility of bachelor’s club members in keeping the vow of celibacy life long.

The frequent poetry and in between all Rasik Dada(big brother) ,non member of club emerged as the carrier to move story making fun via taking advantage of his age factor,romantic sense and this all got supported by poetry & nature.Although I was feeling that it is getting bit stretchy,but turned this to make rounds of tea/coffee.I would do little more leaking of story, how two new characters admission to Kumar Sabha Nirmala & Abalakanta put pressure on other members via their devotion towards taken social cause task.

20191009_122656

In the last 30 pages,story picked the pace welcomed by Aksh again with his all time round joking habit and no doubt rasik dada’s timely comedy interruptions played key role to open doors for all the characters(friends and family) come together under one roof to witness different emotional stage guilty,realisation,happiness.

The last line for Kumar Sabha members ” Don’t expect you will be spared later” gave the last dose of laughter.

Chirakumar Sabha: The Bachelor’s Club: A Comedy in Five Acts

This time, I am attaching a short video clip from Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai(old version),as there is no media clip related to it ,but this book reminds of this family comedy I used to watch a lot.

Review of Chirakumar Sabha#The Bachelor’s Club#

This book is definitely full of comic sense and on the top of that the work of poetry is an added gem.

Now the question is how it proves?

The setting of story starts from the conversation of Aksh(husband) and Puro(wife) gives headstart in terms how Aksh previous member of a bachelor’s group vowed to never think about women ended up in marriage.

Aksh ‘s character did the very good job of filling the conversation with four lines of poetry every time when other characters are confused or in slight anger especially his wife. I would agree,A merrier person that even the married men will envy,these lines in book completely suits him.

20190909_231404

I couldn’t find any media attachment in English. The dialogues between Aksh and prospective bride grooms were not just hilarious but reveals the full hippocratic nature which ended by another funny statement of Aksh that “as soon I slapped their back their tails began to wiggle”.The story had been to the point so far and a family’s way of doing comic sense reminds me time when brothers,sisters and other relatives all sit together,pull each other legs from memories or from a family situation.

Reading this book reminds me of the time when I was watching TV series of Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai,a family comedy,in which different characters or different situations fueled more excitement and laughter.I don’t have relevant media but this trailer of Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai(second version) will give you idea the crazy stuff I am enjoying.

Buy/Borrow:I am posting the amazon affiliate link as well or it is available to borrow from your local library,then I must recommend.
