Two verses from our Ish-Upanishad

 These two are also considered  the ultimate commandments(the gist of all religion).

In Sanskrit:

1.       Ishavashya Idam Sarvam, yat kinchat Jagatyam Jagat;

Ten Tyakten Bhunjeetha, Ma Gridhah Kashyaswid Dhanam.

 

2.       Yasmin Sarvanee Bhootani Atma aiva abhoot Vijanatah

Tatra ko Mohah, Kah Shoka, Ekatwam Anupashyatah.

 

In English:

All that there is in this Universe, is pervaded by God.

Enjoy this world with a degree of detachment; do not covet.

After all, who does really possess any wealth?( it is all left here when one dies)

 

(With long practice) when one reaches a stage when he/she sees all

beings resting in God and God residing  in all; then there is no more delusion,

no more sorrow.

 

Ten Rules For Better Life

1.Prayer is not a “spare wheel” that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a “steering wheel” that directs the right path throughout. 

2. A Car’s WINDSHIELD is so large & the Rear view Mirror is so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, Look Ahead and Move on. 

3. Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write. 

4. All things in life are temporary. If going well, enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong, don’t worry, they can’t last long either. 

5. Old Friends are Gold! New Friends are Diamond! If you get a Diamond, don’t forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a Base of Gold!

6. Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, “Relax, sweetheart, it’s just a bend, not the end!

7. When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn’t solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.

8. A blind person asked St. Anthony: “Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?” He replied: “Yes, losing your vision!” 

9. When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them, and sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you. 

10.WORRYING does not take away tomorrow’s TROUBLES, it takes away today’s PEACE.

Simple thoughts for gaining godsblessings

Early morning my wife chants.I tried to understand her prayer. In her prayer following questions were asked.

1. What is heavier than the Earth?

2. What is thinner than Water?

3. What is more inflammable than Fire? and

4. What is blacker than Soot or Coal?

The answers were as follows.

1. Sin (to commit an offence or violation).Image courtesy of marin at FreeDigitalPhotos.net

2. Knowledge (learning usually refers to knowledge).Image courtesy of stockimages at FreeDigitalPhotos.net

3. Anger (wrath applies especially to anger that seeks vengeance or punishment) andImage courtesy of imagerymajestic at FreeDigitalPhotos.net

4. Disgrace (loss of reputation or respect as the result of a dishonourable action).Image courtesy of imagerymajestic at FreeDigitalPhotos.net

To my mind these should be the our questions and we should ask again and again in life and find acceptable answers to these simple thoughts for gaining godsblessings.

Faith essential for having Gods Blessings

catholic church in indiaAccording to my own experience having faith is essential for having Godsblessings.

Many of us pretend that they are not mosqueinterested in Astrology.

It may be true but most of us do read magazines and news papers and like to read Monthly or Weekly Predictions just for the fun. Whenever it is favourable it is liked otherwise it is thrown to trash.

It is natural that everybody would like to know the posititive things in life and we are scared to accept anything negative coming in our way. But day and night have to be faced together. There is an old saying that EVERY DAY IS NOT SUNDAY, like wise we will have to face all the seasons and adjust our life accordingly.

In an event a calamity we always express OH GOD KINDLY SAVE US. I do not understand why we forget him in our good times. In case we believe and have faith in him I am sure our prayers are going to be answered.

Whatever your religion, caste or creed. In whatever shape or image you have faith in, my sincere advice to you would be to have regular contact with your own diety to have his blessings.Although invisible he is very much alive within you,by practising you will definitely feel his presence and be free from the fear of unknown. You will be confidently feel that nobody in the world can harm you and the one who would still attempt to do so will meet one’s own sins one day.

I am sure most of you must be practising it. If not start doing it immediately.It is very simple. Communicate regularly with your diety facing each other eye to eye and try to talk in your own language, many of your unanswered questions will automatically be answered. You will feel lighter mentally and physically by each passing day. You will need the advice of your doctor lesser,there will be drastic reduction on your medical bills. Many of your wishes may come true.Your dreams will become a reality. It will definitely happen. It is guaranteed but for that you will have to have faith to get godsblessings.

I would appreciate any of your feedbacks. Thanks for visiting this post.

My Lord I Seek Your Blessings

You are the one who has always been with me.

You are the one to whom I owe all my Failures and Success till date.

With you I feel blessed, secured and complete.

You are above all my relations. You are my creator. My guide.

You have always shown me right path, right direction and right ways in all the  accomplishments big or small.

You have given me all the happiness and given me strength to fight any adversity.

You have kept all evil forces away from me. You have always protected me.

I am sure of you. I am part of you.You are within me,always till I am alive.

You are living within me.

I am really BLESSED. Yes really BLESSED.

 

 

 

 

 

A Poem by Mother Teresa

MOTHER_TERESA_PORTRAIT_2

This poem was  written by Mother Teresa
and is  engraved on the wall of her home

People are often  unreasonable, illogical & self-centred;
Forgive  them anyway.

If you are kind,  people may accuse you of being selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind  anyway.

If you are  successful, you will win some false friends and some true
enemies;
Succeed  anyway.

If you are  honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be  honest and frank anyway.

What you spend  years building, someone could destroy overnight:
Build  anyway.

If you find  serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy  anyway.

The good you do  today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good  anyway.

Give the world  the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the  world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the  final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was  never between you and them anyway.
