DILEMMA OF HUMAN BEING--------2

Dear Polly, It is good to know that you have your roots in Greek, that is the proof of Sanskaras of the previous birth. It is a scientifically proven fact that human being has to take a birth so long as his Karma and Sanskara does not get reduce to zero. Actually speaking, the journey towards VG is nothing but tracing the way by which human being could find the process of zeroing his falls identification and serch his/her reality, the basic goale of human life.And once human being is able to… Continue

DILEMMA OF HUMAN BEING-------1

Dear Polly, Thanks for your deep interest in the subject. I respect your way of thinking. I would reply your questions.

I have read your note and could feel that you are very much eager to know about the subject. Your questions are very much relevent. But it is difficult to deal with them unless you have full background of the concepts that are in Sanskrit.… Continue

THE DILEMMA OF HUMAN BEING

Human being generally think in the Horizental Direction---HD . The limitation of this type of thinking is that mind can go only up to limited awareness, because HD is limited in Space and Time. One has to discover the idea of Verticle Growth--VG, in order to go beyond mere worldley way, in order to achieve real- goal of life. The primary need is the inner eagerness to search the hightest state of conciousness, which is far beyond the odinary intellectual awarness to which I call---HD..So, it is… Continue

Gandhi Peace Walk- Irishman dressed as Gandhi makes it to D.C

Well my Dear Boys and Girls, after fifteen months of walking the country, I have finally made it home. Here we are at the end of one road and the beginning of another, such is Life. A man once asked me, "Why are you walking across the country?" At the time i didn't know why, maybe it was just to stretch my legs or lose a few pounds. Well, I still can't tell him the Why of it, but I can most certainly tell him what I have learned from doing it. It goes something like this.

Starting off in… Continue

Balance of Life

During my childhood, I always can we think best for ourselves. I always heard from the growing up saying that life is tough and they don't have a choice but to work hard to get what they want. Is that really true, and by working hard, playing less we can get what we want? After I join the club, the same thing happens to me and people around me. Then I come to another question, when the time we get what we think we want, is that really what we want?

After a deep thought in all these…

Global Solution lies in self-pls contribute. Critiques are most welcome

We all are facing single question deep in our mind whenever we are discussing or listening to any kind of problem.



And the question is:-"How can I be a part of solution. I am too small for such big problems. Where do I start. etc"



Solution lies in self. This was and is the basis of the vedic civilization ( HInduism). pls refer the scriptures of hinduism.

All of them talk about self discipline and self realization and eventually conclude that we are not waves but part… Continue

Education system, Religion, Hinduism and future

In view of my earlier blog, it is important to realise and accept that we should stop competing other religions versus hinduism. Hindism is not a religion. If we flip back our history textbooks, we will realize that we had civilizations like mesopotamia, indus valley/harappa etc and there were no mention of any religion.

Thus we all belong to one or the other civilization which is supreme over any religion. Religion was an instrument or media established to strengthen our faiths in good… Continue
