There was a time during 2001; I used to chat with my paternal Grandfather who was an octogenarian at that time. A successful AYURVEDIC PRACTICINOR of his time who struggled very hard during his early times later on became popular among mass of 50-100 villagers as “Kabiraj”.I missed my childhood in his company but that was a blessing in disguise bcoz I found reason to be in his vicinity in my adulthood. Might be I woun’t learned that much as I was in this time period (although it’s a very short). The way he understand people is really impressive. I used to sit with him with my diary and jotted down what ever comes from his mouth……everything comes from his end (although I didn’t agreed…with bit of arguments/discussions..still I was able to convinced by him and so also to him)
Shovadhare Kusuma nikare, Kinsuke Nasi Gandham
Gandhadhare Gagana Bihage, chandane Nasti Puspam
Ekshu Brukshe na bhabati falam, Ketaki Kantakatya
Ekadhare sakala suvagam Durlavam hi triloke….
Meaning: dispite of exquisite beauty, Kinsuka(Palas,the flame of the forest) has no scant, Where as despite of such a heavy aroma, the sandalwood is devoid of flowers,
Ekshu (sugarcane plant) is the sweetest of all still lacks fruits and The Ketaki (the pandanus) although the most beautiful but forbidden one as it is surrounded by spines………….whats the moral??????????????????????/

On “Desire” He said……
Na Jatu Kama Kamanam, Upabhoge Nasamyati
Habisa Krishnavatwee, bhoya eeba vivardhate
Means: No Desire can be fulfilled on it unrighteous fulfilment. It increases like the fire with the action of Ghee

Every Sunday morning he used to donate money to the destitutes (mostly lepers).It most consists of small paper packets which consists of coins of 10paisa,20p, 25p, or 50.1 Rupees. He used to distribute that accordingly. I was a regular exercise (every Sunday)
One day I found that some beggers showed their dissatisfaction/frustration regarding the amount….as they demand only or not less than 1 Rupees…
On the evening I told him all these and asked not to give those who were discontenting on their part….on reply he narrated a sloka…
Tuno Naikasare Karena Dasadha…..

The quality of life that U lead depends upon the choices U made between
HAVE TO KEEP THE MIND ON THE THINGS THAT U WANT
WHEN U W’LL WANT THEN U CAN DRAEM,
WHEN U W’LL DREAM, THN U CAN FULFILL
WHEN U CAN FULFILL, THN U CAN SATISFIED,
WHEN U W’LL SATISFIED THN U CAN SUCCEED.
Life is like is having a cup of tea. U sit by the window with a book in your lap, while soft, wisps of steam curl up from the tea cup.
U lift the cup, assume a mid distant gaze: and take a careless little sip, only to realize somebody forgot to put in one sugar.
Too lazy to limber up, you somehow struggle through that sugarless cup. Till u ruefully discovered un-dissolved sugar crystal sitting on the bottom…..
By then it is too late………………….
It is humbling to be asked material interests are not the only guiding light. Take the time to figure out how to get there. The quickest way may not necessarily be the best. The journey matters as much as the goal. Wishing u the best on
The biggest room in the world is the room of improvement. So the person who improves himself or tries to improve his skill never fails. Even the river flows with the help of wave and thus makes itself clean. The wave of improvement makes a person clean like a river. Where as a pond which is depriving of any wave remain still and may be odour badly.

Hen created the Egg
This I am told that, Nature created the Man,
And the Man crated the “God”
My belief system does have an answer for questions about the origins of gods. I believe that it is the belief of souls that create gods. Note that the title of this node is something of a misnomer; there's nothing restricting this to humans, or, for that matter, Earth. But it is belief itself that creates the entity known as a god of some form.
Who is God? What can we know about God? We so often get caught up in defining God. And if knowing God is possible, how do we comprehend him: by reason or only through an ecstatic epiphany of faith. We so often get caught up in defining God. Through the centuries the perception of God has changed for man. Man has usually bestowed the characteristics that he admires or fears on his God. I hear people call God vengeful, jealous, loving, and benevolent and any other number of human characteristics. God can lift you up, God can strike you down. God can Bless you God can curse you. So it got me to thinking, who or what is God? I mean really. If I go by the characteristics placed oh him by different people I would have to say God suffers from multiple personality disorder or Man’s has the multiple perception disorder regarding a single Almighty. Is God a person that sits on high, or is he/she/it something else?
Science is now acknowledging that there is an intelligent field that permeates all of creation. Stephen Hawking a world famous physicist calls it the mind of God, Greg Braden a philosopher and scientist calls it the divine matrix. Max Planck, the father of modern physics, in 1944 identified this field as the matrix," he says that all matter the stuff our world is made of originates and exist by virtue of a force, we must assume behind this force is the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter." Max Planck is one of the most renowned physicists to ever live. Was this science acknowledging the existence of God? They all agree that it is not a being.
And at last because am unable to define him…..I admire him…being a devotee……
There's one sad truth in life I've found.....While journeying east and west -The only folks we really woundAre those we love the best.We flatter those we scarcely know,We please the fleeting guest,And deal full many a thoughtless blow To those who love us best
Woman, like the Blue Mountains,
Looks beautiful from a distance,
Close in and discover
What is in store for you…?
Happy is the man, who loves his wife,
Happier still if he obeys her obedience is alien to human nature thought
To buy Peace, it is the only option.
For she is working;
Children live elsewhere
For they are student;
The Man (Husband) has turned poetic
On his wonderful family world”

But so it is if served at haste…………….
Let me remember Ingersol’s.. Every crime is born of necessity. If you want less crime, you must change the conditions. Poverty makes crime. Want, rags, crusts, misfortune - all these awake the wild beast in man, and finally he takes, and takes contrary to law, and becomes a criminal. And what do you do with him? You punish him. Why not punish a man for having consumption? The time will come when you will see that that is just as logical. What do you do with the criminal? You send him to the penitentiary. Is he made better? Worse. The first thing you do is to try to trample out his manhood, by putting an indignity upon him. You mark him. You put him in stripes. At night you put him in darkness. His feeling for revenge grows. You make a wild beast of him, and he comes out of that place branded in body and soul, and then you won't let him reform if he wants to.
Let come to punishment……an way of delivering the justice……………
Seven years for killing a man with stick;
Ten years for “Ganja”;
For that is the “Law of our Land”
Punishment is now unfashionable... because it creates moral distinctions among men, which, to the democratic mind, are odious. We prefer a meaningless collective guilt to a meaningful individual responsibility
Lets think up Justice of Rewards
“Fifty Rupees for a hard days labour in a field
Two Hundred at least at the factory,
Millions for a “song”, “Lyric” or a “Play”,
Countless in politics”
Think up the Dilemma of Justice…………………………………….

While "yin" would be dark, passive, downward, cold, contracting, and weak, "yang" would be bright, active, upward, hot, expanding, and strong. The shape of the yin and yang sections of the symbol, actually gives you a sense of the continual movement of these two energies, yin to yang and yang to yin, causing everything to happen: just as things expand and contract, and temperature changes from hot to cold.
The essentials of the yin-yang school are as follows: the universe is run by a single principle, the Tao, or Great Ultimate. This principle is divided into two opposite principles, or two principles which oppose one another in their actions, yin and yang. All the opposites one perceives in the universe can be reduced to one of the opposite forces. The yin and yang accomplish changes in the universe through the five material agents, or wu hsing , which both produce one another and overcome one another. All change in the universe can be explained by the workings of yin and yang and the progress of the five material agents as they either produce one another or overcome one another. Yin-yang and the five agents are, I need to stress, a universal explanatory principle. The Five Agents are categories referring to the fundamental ingredients of the universe. They are named after wood, fire, earth, metal and water, but do not simply refer to these five concrete substances. Rather, they represent a basic framework or mental model by which all phenomena can be classified into five types.
The Five Agents are a fundamental classification system for all things. The relationships between the Five Agents represent the basic relationships between all things. The Five Agents are wood, fire, earth, metal and water, each having manifold meanings, which it would be impossible to fully enumerate. Below, we shall give a brief list of those most commonly used in Daoist religious practice and scriptures:Five Agents: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, WaterFive Directions: East, South, Centre, West, North Five Colors: Green, Red, Yellow, White, Black Five Flavors: Sour, Bitter, Sweet, Acrid, Salty Five Planets: Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, Venus, Mercury Five Viscera: Liver, Heart, Spleen, Lung, Kidney
The relationships between the Five Agents are characterized by mutual generation and mutual control. Mutual generation means that each Agent gives birth to another Agent according to a specific order. The order of mutual generation is an endless cycle. Mutual control means that each Agent restricts another Agent according to a different order. The cycle of control is also an endless one: each controlling Agent is also under the control of another Agent in a different situation. The order of mutual generation is as follows:Wood generates Fire; Fire generates Earth; Earth generates Metal; Metal generates Water; Water generates Wood. The order of mutual control is as follows: Wood overcomes Earth; Earth overcomes Water; Water overcomes Fire; Fire overcomes Metal; Metal overcomes Wood. If the Five Agents are enumerated in the order of Wood-Fire-Earth-Metal-Water, then in the cycle of mutual generation each Agent generates the next Agent down the list; while in the cycle of control each Agent overcomes the second Agent down the list.
The Five Agents are the basic ingredients of the universe. All phenomena can be understood using yin-yang and the five agents: the movements of the stars, the workings of the body, the nature of foods, the qualities of music, the ethical qualities of humans, the progress of time, the operations of government, and even the nature of historical change. All things follow this order so that all things can be related to one another in some way: one can use the stars to determine what kind of policy to pursue in government, for instance, the yin and yang represent all the opposite principles one finds in the universe. Under yang are the principles of maleness, the sun, creation, heat, light, Heaven, dominance, and so on, and under yin are the principles of femaleness, the moon, completion, cold, darkness, material forms, submission, and so on. Each of these opposites produce the other: Heaven creates the ideas of things under yang, the earth produces their material forms under yin, and vice versa; creation occurs under the principle of yang, the completion of the created thing occurs under yin, and vice versa, and so on. This production of yin from yang and yang from yin occurs cyclically and constantly, so that no one principle continually dominates the other or determines the other. All opposites that one experiences—health and sickness, wealth and poverty, power and submission—can be explained in reference to the temporary dominance of one principle over the other. Since no one principle dominates eternally, that means that all conditions are subject to change into their opposites. This cyclical nature of yin and yang, the opposing forces of change in the universe, mean several things. First, that all phenomena change into their opposites in an eternal cycle of reversal. Second, since the one principle produces the other, all phenomena have within them the seeds of their opposite state, that This cyclical nature of yin and yang, the opposing forces of change in the universe, mean several things. First, that all phenomena change into their opposites in an eternal cycle of reversal. Second, since the one principle produces the other, all phenomena have within them the seeds of their opposite state, that is, sickness has the seeds of health, health contains the seeds of sickness, wealth contains the seeds of poverty, etc. Third, even though an opposite may not be seen to be present, since one principle produces the other, no phenomenon is completely devoid of its opposite state. One is never really healthy since health contains the principle of its opposite, sickness. This is called "presence in absence."

The genesis of the caterpillar’s transformation begins with the appearance of what scientists have termed “imaginal” cells whose origin is still a mystery. That’s why they are ‘imaginals’.At first, the imaginal cells are fought off and destroyed by the intelligence of the caterpillar organism. But the imaginal cells keep coming back and eventually form clusters of cells to strengthen their domain. Soon the clusters form bonds where they pass genetic type information to one another. The clusters resonate at a higher frequency then their host and begin changing the physical make-up of the caterpillar. At a certain point in time, the long string of clumping and clustering imaginal cells switches gears from simply being a group of like-minded cells into the programming cells of the butterfly. They literally reach a critical mass of influence where the caterpillar’s destiny is altered to become a butterfly.
Let us enlight this story as a highly symbolic of what is occurring in our world today, and how a more evolved experience is on the horizon for humanity. Imaginal cells are clustering all over the globe, resonating at a higher frequency and bringing the light of a new consciousness to mankind. These represents the countless people that are stepping out of their societal roles and doing things to help the collective good. We see it by innumerable organizations that are popping up with the sole mission of making the world a better place.
We can see it in the excitement that Mahatma Gandhi’s non violence campaign to Indians, regarding an Independent India or we may say Barack Obama’s campaign is providing tens of millions of people with the simple message “we need to change things”. These are humanity’s imaginal cells manifesting and clustering.
Imaginal cells exist within our body right now, and are attempting to cluster together and help us to increase our own consciousness. We The Change must begin with I, The Change. The question is: whether we are allowing this to happen? Or not???
The spark for these sorts of individual transformation is all around us…just we have to look and nurture. The mystic transformation motivates us to expand our consciousness.
We must all become seekers of our own mission in life for a new global reality to take form. It is the only way…
Our destiny is to emerge into a new realm of being, and we must each make the decision to either become a part of the new consciousness (butterfly) or stagnate with the dying way of things (caterpillar).
The truth is especially hard to believe if it requires that we take action — if it requires that we change. If humanity is to have a future, we must take action — we must change. If humanity is to have a future, we must believe the truth. Examination of the human condition today reveals little to no existence of synergic relationships.. If we humans are to transcend our adversary and neutral pasts, we must change. To prepare for that change we humans can learn much by studying all forms of life and how they are related. By studying the history and past developmental paths of other life forms, we can learn to understand our human predicament and plan a safe passage to our future — a safe passage through our human crisis.
If we are successful, we will discover that this is not the end times, but a time of transformation — in fact a new beginning. Transformation is an invention of life. It is a strategy that enables a life form to adapt to difficult realities.
Let us examine the evolution of butterfly. When the mature gravid female butterfly deposits her eggs on the underside of a very particular leaf, the life cycle begins for a new butterfly. When an egg hatches a new caterpillar finds itself confronted with a world of green leaves and stems and only one purpose on its mind — to devour that tasty and delicious world. The caterpillar begins its seemingly endless task of ingesting all the plant carbohydrate within its reach. It appears as an eating machine, devouring all the leaves in its path. As it does this it bulks up, acquiring the necessary mass to sustain what must come next. The caterpillar in fact will need its mass to fuel its transformation from caterpillar to pupa and finally into butterfly hood.
This transformation will result in an organism much more effectively adapted for survival. Prior to the transformation the organism as caterpillar is limited to live out its life on a single plant all within the radius of fifteen feet. After the transformation, the organism as butterfly can range thousands of miles traveling an entire continent. Transformation for the butterfly will result in enormous adaptability. However, the organism as caterpillar is oblivious to the power that awaits it. It spends its days at the mindless task of nonstop eating. As the time of transformation approaches, things begin to become more and more difficult for the caterpillar. The world of its birth once so rich with endless green leaves is now bare from the caterpillar’s own non-stop feeding. The plant that was the caterpillar’s whole world is now dying. The future seems bleak indeed. Then things get even worse. A strange malady strikes the caterpillar. Its body begins to stiffen and slow. And soon the power to crawl is lost and with it even the chance to find a new plant. Then, the caterpillar’s body becomes completely rigid and all power of movement is lost. To the cells within the body of the caterpillar it must certainly seem like the end times.
I propose that the humans of today are like the cells within the caterpillar. That the present human crisis doesn’t mean that we are at the end of human evolution, but instead that we are near our own transformation to a much more co-Operative and powerful form of humanity. I believe that most of our fellow humans living today are oblivious to the power that awaits them in the future.
Humans are Time-binders. Ours is the power to know and that knowledge grows without limits. If we remain in our childhood as a species, our conflict and indifference will continue injuring us until we eventually we produce such unlimited weapons that must by definition destroy us. If we are to enter our adulthood as a species we must put away childish things. We must put away the conflict of the adversary way. We must put away the indifference of the neutral way. And, we must put away not only nuclear weapons, but in fact we must put away all weapons. And then and only then will it truly be safe.

Dogmas--religious, political, scientific--arise out of erroneous belief that thought can encapsulate reality or truth. Dogmas are collective conceptual prisons. And the strange thing is that people love their prison cells because they give them a sense of security and a false sense of "I know." Science is the process of trying to understand the nature of reality. And it's a fundamental of science that we believe reality exists, instead of having it be a human construct or all a matter of relative point of view. There isn't another side of the story in science. There are the right and wrong answers, and you do a better or worse job of understanding that reality, but we do believe reality is there. That's fundamental to what we're doing.
