Save Yourself by Yourself...

Image
All knowledge that the world has ever received comes from the mind; the infinite library of the universe is in our own mind.


All power is within you. You can do anything and everything. Believe in that. Do not believe that you are weak; do not believe that you are half-crazy lunatics, as most of us do nowadays. Stand up and express the divinity within you.


Anything that brings spiritual, mental, or physical weakness, touch it not with the toes of your feet.


As soon as I think that I am a little body, I want to preserve it, to protect it, to keep it nice, at the expense of other bodies; then you and I become separate.


Do not go for glass beads leaving the mine of diamonds. This life is a great chance. What, seekest thou the pleasures of the world? He is the fountain of all bliss. See for the highest, aim at that highest, and you shall reach the highest.


Fill the brain with high thoughts, highest ideals, place them day and night before you, and out of that will come great work.

Thoughts on Mahavir Jayanthi

Image
It was on March 24, a few days ago, I felt happy and joy for being on the land of Vaishali, the land sanctified by the stay of Avatar Sri Ramachandra.
Now my joy knows no bounds when I came to know that this land is further sanctified by the birth of God-man Vardhamana Mahavira, the apostle of Jainism. I share a few of my thoughts.

Vaisali’s claim to fame rests on the fact that it was the first republic in the world that followed a democratic system of government over an area much larger than the Greek city-state or a Swiss Canton. Vaisali had no monarch, but a popular assembly and elders’ council who carried on the business of the state. It was a city with three walls, each of them built in a cow’s call distant from the next wherein 7707 Rajas were living. Vaisali, thus made a significant contribution to the evolution of the Indian polity and its importance in the cultural history of India is very great.

Vaisali was the cradle of Jainism from where the concepts of truth, non-violence…

Ramashtakam with meaning

1.I pray always that Rama,

Who is second to none,
Who is especially pretty,
Who cuts off all sins,
And who makes the mind,
Of his devotes happy.


2.I pray always that Rama,
Who is second to none,
Who shines with his matted hair,
Who destroys all sins,
And who makes the mind,
Of his devotees free from fear.


3.I pray always that Rama,
Who is second to none,
Who shows us his real self,
Who is very merciful,
Who destroys sorrows of life,
Who considers every one equal,
Who is peaceful,
And who does all that is good.


4.I pray always that Rama,
Who is second to none,
Who shows the world in himself,
Who is the truth without names,
Who is someone without form,
And who is away from sickness and pain.


5.I pray always that Rama,
Who is second to none,
Who is away from the world,
Who does not see differences,
Who is crystal clear,
Who does not have diseases,
And who stands always as,
The real form of truth.


6.I pray always that Rama,
Who is second to none,
Who is the ship to cross the sea of life,
Who shines as all types of bodies.
