Some superior lines on "Ego"

For a man, the ego (Ahankara) is very important. If you destroy the ego of a man, he is destroyed.
For a woman, feelings are very important,If you destroy feelings of a woman, she is destroyed. She becomes like a stone.
In a family,wife should never put down her husband's ego.Always pump up his ego! All that a man wants to show is:"look at what I have achieved!Look at what I have done!" Behind all achievement is an ego! So a woman will have to support the ego of a man.
Similarly, a man should not criticize woman's parents, anyone close to her or immediate family. If he does-She is HURT!! She may just take it- she may not react-but you are doing some harm there. This is because a woman-a girl- is proud of her parental house; she has such a strong and deep bond to her parental house.
No woman tolerates her husband criticizing her parents or siblings. She wants them to be honoured and respected. She is emotionally linked to them.
Similarly no man would like his wife to tell him," You are useless!! you didn't do better!" No man can tolerate this.
The "EGO" has a role to play in life. It's like the covering- the membrane on a seed! It is necessary as long as the seed wants to remain a seed! the moment it starts sprouting, that covering has to give way for the sprout to grow......It has to let go...
Similarly in our Bhagavad Gita, Krishna as a friend- said to Arjuna," You surrender to me". Arjuna didn't do that. He simply said "You are my friend,I love you so much!"
Arjuna was told," Come on! what will people think of you?!Are you not ashamed?". When a person breaks down, his ego is shattered.
Krishna was trying to "poke" Arjuna's ego! He was trying to consolidate , awaken and strengthen his ego... and to awaken his valour.
The point that comes through this is just that, one will not look at how weak or strong one is! Even the weakest person will fight when his ego is invoked.
HOSH and JOSH are to be created in each one of us...

Did Shakespeare Ever Marry?

"One woman is fair, yet I am well;
another is wise, yet I am well;
another virtuous, yet I am well;
but till all graces be in one woman, one woman shall not come in my grace .

Rich she shall be, that's certain;wise, or I'll have none;virtuous, or I'll never cheapen her;
fair, or I'll never look on her; mild, or come not near me; noble, or not I for an angel; of good discourse, an excellent musician, and her hair shall be of what color it please God."

Leaves us wondering if Shakespeare ever did marry.........

Superb Doubt!

An Evening with Guruji @ Ashram

Yesterday, Guruji called us up for a quick meeting to discuss on Vedic Mathematics Online Tutorial Software. Myself and Vedanna hurried up for a meeting and I ran short of time to get ready for the demo. So just took the laptop and ran to the meeting hall...By the time he entered the room for a metting, I had lil time to copy down the files to the hard drive. Hmmmm........ he didnt give me some more time to embed the flash in index page...huh!!!!
I was all tensed for a while...He entered the meeting hall with a smile on his face...greeted everyone,blessed everyone... and he asked Vedanna what's up? Vedanna said him that we are ready for the demo on Vedic Maths!!!! I got nerved.... and no doubt.. Guruji knew that I wasn't prepared completely for the demo... coincidently he said "swalpa thale novu ivatthu,matthe bere dina nodona aitha?" huh! I calmed down and sat next to him... I cleared all my mind putting forth all the queries to him.... he told me only one thing "GIVE YOUR BEST, REST WILL BE PRESENTED TO YOU ON TIME" and he blessed me giving a peice of coconut burfi :-)
I felt all empty,light, off the worries, tensions....
Guruji just then uttered a word....All of you pray that, this heat is reduced and it rains heavily.....
What a wonder!!!! It rained like CATS and DOGS...heavy breezeeeeeeee, couldn't get out off the meeting hall....It continously poured for three hours and We had great chance to be with Divine for so long....
unfortunately, as usual I forgot to carry the DIGI with me in hurry of meeting.... just lost a chance to capture his snaps........
From aashram I directly drived down to Dance Therapy that was conducted by Dr.Satyanarayana,as Vedanna wanted to shoot a video of the course. I returned back home at around 10:30 PM and I hit my sack....
All I can say is I'm BLISSED!!

Happy Father's Day! -18th June

What Makes a Dad?

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majest
y of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The generous soul of nature,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so,

He called it ... Dad

All that worth a read!!

An 80 year old man was sitting on the sofa in his house along with his 45 years old highly educated son. Suddenly a crow perched on their window.

The Father asked his Son, "What is this?"The Son replied "It is a crow".

After a few minutes, the Father asked his Son the 2nd time, "What is this."The Son said "Father, I have just now told you "It's a crow".

After a little while, the old Father again asked his Son the 3rd time,"What is this?"At this time some __expression of irritation was felt in the Son's tone when he said to his Father with a rebuff. "It's a crow, a crow".

A little after, the Father again asked his Son the 4th time, "What is this?"

This time the Son shouted at his Father, "Why do you keep asking me thesame question again and again, although I have told you so many times 'IT IS A CROW'. Are you not able to understand this?"

Little later the Father went to his room and came back with an old tattered diary, which he had maintained since his Son was born. On opening a page, he asked his Son to read that page. When the son read it, the following words were written in the diary :-"Today my little son aged three was sitting with me on the sofa, when a crow was sitting on the window. My Son asked me 23 times what it was, and I replied to him all 23 times that it was a Crow. I hugged him lovingly each time he asked me the same question again and again for 23times. I did not at all feel irritated I rather felt affection for my innocent child".

While the little child asked him 23 times "What is this", the Father had felt no irritation in replying to the same question all 23 times andwhen today the Father asked his Son the same question just 4 times, the Son felt irritated and annoyed.

So..If your parents attain old age, do not repulse them or look at them as a burden, but speak to them a gracious word, be cool, obedient, humble and kind to them. Be considerate to your parents.From today say this aloud,"I want to see my parents happy forever. They have cared for me ever sinceI was a little child. They have always showered their selfless love on me.

They crossed all mountains and valleys without seeing the storm and heatto make me a person presentable in the society today". Say a prayer to God, "I will serve my old parents in the BEST way. I will say all good and kind words to my dear parents, no matter how they behave".

Why do people misunderstand me?

Yeh, yesterday I returned back from office quiet early... after slight snacks...I realised that I haven't given enough time for myself these days.. I was on terrace as usual looking at stars..observing what's happenening in my life...and with people surronding me,What a wonderful feeling?

Mom and Dad returned back safely from Europe... Tho they nerved me and sis early in the morning without phone calls or any info about their flight being delayed...I could all feel that emptiness of parents for 22 days... What can fill their place? Nothing in world can equate parents who have taken all that strain of bringing us up.
During their absence..I got good chance to improve my cooking skills as well as home management skills..I relalised the stress mom used to take daily...Hearty thanks to mom. Without her, our home wouldnt b home!!!!

Thinking about my personal life, first thing stuck to my mind is that..why do people misunderstand me?
Neither I have the nature of interefering in others issues nor I get curious about it too. Since my childhood, I have the habit of observing myself..how do I behave with others? what can I improve in self?What good characters I can inculcate in me?
Being so...the care,love and affection to my buddies is been my very nature...it flows naturally towards all my buddies.. I haven't been Chipku in anyones life...each and every buddy of mine means so much to me..each one is been given a place in my heart...

Even with this instict...am I worth to be called a PEST in someone's life?yeh, I feel the pain of being called so by my buddy, whom I counted on so much..alrite..I have no right to judge somebody, Each one's state of mind and thier reaction at that moment.

I consoled myself, with a quote : "New day, new blessings! Don't let yesterday's failure ruin today's beauty, because each day has it own promise of LOVE, JOY , FORGIVENESS and SUCCESS"

I couldnt find much time to think on it, as it was dinner time
Let Go...Let God Take Care!!!!!!

Why wedding ring on the fourth finger ??

Really interesting thing.

Why wedding ring should be put on the fourth finger??

Pls follow the below step, really god make this a miracle (this is from a Chinese excerpt)

Firstly, show your palm, centre finger bend and put together back to back

Secondly, the rest 4 fingers tips to tips

Games begin, follow the below arrangement, 5 finger but only 1 pair can split.

Try to open your thumb, the thumb represent parents, it can be open because all human does go thru sick and dead. Which are our parents will leave us one day

Please close up your thumb, then open your second finger, the finger represent brothers and sisters, they do have their own family which is too they will leave us too

Now close up your second finger, open up your little finer, this represent your children. Sooner or later they too will leave us for they got they own living to live

Nevertheless, close up your little finger, try to open your fourth finger which we put our wedding ring; you will be surprise to find that it cannot be open at all. Because it represent husband and wife, this whole life you will be attach to each other

Real love will stick together ever and forever

Thumb represents parents

Centre finger represent own self

Fourth finger represent your partner

When You Left Me...

All By My Heart....After Ages....Jotting My Thoughts....

The days spent in two weren't always gloom,
There was a time of happiness when i was with you...

My days feels so long, It's difficult to move on,
When my thoughts are of you and remind me of you are gone,
I'm just so confused, you left without clues..
