Nip in the bud Concept

Why I am talking about this suddenly?

Well yesterday in the evening, when I was completing my assignments along with it, I was also listening Hare Krishna TV, a channel on YouTube dedicated to Krishna Consciousness. I listened an interesting lecture “Nip in the Bud” concept by Mahatma Das to identify early stage of intelligence when we mediate on anything, I felt so thankful & filled with excitement to share with readers on WordPress. My obeisance to him, it is Krishna mercy through him. I would definitely recommend checking his website.

What was the Lecture?

Krishna ,when we meditate on anything more and more, we start losing the first stage of analysis when our intelligence is more active that’s the time we need to recognise and stop it before it slips and turns into lust.

Beautifully said that, recognise the early stage of mediating whether it is your career, buying a product or any thing. It is the stage ,when intelligence is very active and asking questions “Why I need this”, “How it can satisfy me” ,quality questions for mutual benefit. This is the right time to nip in the bud before it gets too late turn into attachment second stage and lastly third stage “lust”. Mostly marketers, they use lots of parameters to connect to products, to increase our meditating time.It is upto to us to ask quality questions rather than directly jumping to third stage straightway, means ending in I have to have it, a dangerous stage to pull out from.

He explained by taking an example of marriage, they break because when you are looking more than required, which ultimately goes to unpleasant stage. I hope , it has helped you to recognise,

“Our intelligence is Our Ally”

“As It is “

Reading Bhagwad-Gita every day and feeling the direct and main message of the book is simply that “It is time go Back To Godhead”. Chapter 2 is simply the elaborate explanation of Arjuna’s confusion or I would say that his desire to re-announce his duties and simply live in forest. This whole confusion starts getting its way from the start of Chapter 3.

I am on chapter-3,here Krishna is taking over the conversation insisted that ignoring the real-facts of life, you will fail in attaining peace & happiness that you have been talking about for so long. A warrior has duty to fight on the intention to establish kingdom on right principles, you are just dealing situation with an escape-mindset. Krishna emphasis on giving up your duties without purification of inner-self ,on the top of that talking flowering language of Vedas to keep society in order is simply based due to bodily attachment to life.

Gita has so much to offer and I am feeling helpless to summarise the chapters. This effort is just like that trying to get an ocean in a small jar. I really don’t know, what more I can write but by Krishna’s mercy, I am hoping that via this blog if even a single person get interested in Gita that will be so much for me.

I never thought that I would be so consistent in reading Gita every day. This book written by Shri Prabhupada delivers message ” Go Back to God”, otherwise when you are gonna go back, when that moment will come to be free from dwelling situations of life. More clarity paved my way, when I wondered how a Krishna conscious person carry on with duties.

A Krishna conscious will do the same duties comparing to non-Krishna conscious person but there is a gulf of difference. Krishna conscious person never take shelter of false ego considering himself as doer of everything ,hence free from any reaction, on the other hand a materialistic person finds his way to build ego, hence will have to be the cause of karma as well, in this way you can’t turn away from the reactions of karma as well.

“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.

But how easy or difficult to practice “As it is”.The main question “A big How?”I have so much to tell but from where to start don’t know,that’s why I leave the things on life to shape the story.

“As it is ” is not just instant remedy for the problem but actually it is the way of life,to keep you carry on. The more rigid we are ,more difficult it is .I must say the lock down has proven a boon in the sense,I am more in the questioning/observation mode directing me towards to be more flexible.

A simple example ,I exercised today that when my elder son in hurry opened the microwave door without even seeing his younger brother is just right there,as a result he got hit by door,fortunately it wasn’t that bad.In obvious way,I got angry and at one point I just prayed “Goddess Laxmi”,please Mother help me to understand this scenario .A pause helped to understand “As it is”,very soon I felt, that I am exaggerating,so I stopped,diverted myself and after some time had constructive conversation with my son to build awareness.So,the Rain concept ,follows later which I found from one of the blogger’s comment on the old post,so grateful to him.

I recalled the fact,my elder son is always full of energy,fond of running,sports (Recognition).

So expect that the vibrant energy(Acceptance).

I asked mother please advise me “What is the difference between a constructive angry form and destructive angry form?(Investigation)

There is thin line difference ,constructive angry form leaves you with awareness & solution,it settles down quickly but destructive just destroys like recalling past so much,complaining ,completely stuck,not progressing towards solution. (Nurture)

So,what’s your story,did you feel at some point in your life that you stopped to think “As it is”,would be fun to get more insight.Please like,comment,share or subscribe if you like this blog.Thank you

But Why?

Without “As it is “,what I will be doing differently?

I am going to explain just like in maths we do,to prove a theorem,start with theorem assumption and then break down into simple chunks to prove .So far,not taking this philosophy into account,I felt that I am always divided into two states happy or sorrowful state.It took me years to come to this conclusion & every day practice that I am complete and above this. It is feeling like being a “Lotus” flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty.I know that life will keep testing me and that’s why I will keep sharing my experiences.

I am thinking of continue this by a story telling in next post.Please share your story,if you are experiencing this state in your life.Please like,comment or subscribe if you like this blog.Thank you

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.

Drama Review”Bhaage Re Man Part2″

The introduction of season-2 mainly has the beginning of her puzzled love story and how it took shape from admitting love to overcoming all the hurdles to reach the wedding point.The season-2 is not available on Netflix but it is available to watch online,I have shared a link in the end.

Padmini is fully set in house and not just that she takes charge of responsibility of the whole house due to sudden demise of her beloved sister-in-law,also get busy with relaunching business(nearly sinking ship) as well ,for which her friend makeover consultant Rudra get called in.In between of all this sudden unexpected entry of Riya(wife of Raghav,left 14 years ago) intrinsically pushed her to admit the love for Raghav.

Definitely it has very common pattern like other dramas,what holded me due to number of reasons.First of all,I liked the immediate understanding that happens in relations here on mature level,no doubt Maa(mother of Raghav) contributed a good level of tension to keep padmini away, the wholesome padmini who always truly believe in herself and lastly out of my choice after long time ,I was enjoying a Tv-series for a reasonable time.

The media below is a small interview of Padmini(Karuna Pandey),reflecting her views on the character.

The link below has all videos of season-2

Drama Review “Bhaage Re Man Season 1”

After a very long time,I enjoyed so much watching a TV series “Bhaage Re Mann” on Netflix. In the below media,I am posting a beautiful song by Vibha Saraf for the drama.At the very end of this post,I have shared a small trailer as well

What is this TV series about?

It is a family drama and is suitable to watch with family.The story plot begins with an extremely busy family in preparation of youngest daughter marriage and yet they don’t want spare any moment to refresh their memories related to not just daughter but overall how happily life has been so far.

In the middle of hustle bustle environment,a guest came about whom no body knows except Anjali(mother) & Ashok(father) and Raghav (next door neighbour) and in no time it is found that this guest is actually Aunt(Padmini) as she is sister of Ashok. All the young adults of family get excited when they learned peculiar things about such a full of life their Aunt MiniB(nick name) and can’t get wait to get her know more.

Padmini left her home 20 years ago in the middle of her own wedding time,she was confused,not ready at all, in addition to this she sought help from bridegroom Raghav(her best friend as well) but nothing was worked out satisfactorily.Now after 20 years,coming back to home,how she weaves the carpet to rest her feet on,proved a must watch story.

Overall I would conclude that each episode is given the reasonable pace using elements of humour,family concerns,relations,romance etc. moves the story interestingly to hold the audience.

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.
