Sukh Ke Sab Saathi Dukh Mein February 5, 2010


Sukh Ke Sab Saathi Dukh Mein Na Koi
Mere Ram, Mere Ram
Tera Naam Ek Saacha Dooja Na Koi

In prosperity all are friends
No one is friend in surrow
Oh my Lord! Oh my Lord!
Only you are true and no one else

Jeevan Aani Jaani Chhaaya
Jhoothi Maya Jhoothi Kaya
Phir Kahe Ko Saari Umariya
Paapki Gathri Dhoi
Sukh Ke Sab Saathi…

Life is like a shadow
Which repeats itself all is false
This brittle life, these weblike relations
Why we keep carrying this load of sin?

Na Kuchh Tera Na Kuchh Mera
Ye Jag Jogi Vaala Phera
Raja Ho Ya Runk Sabhi Ka
Ant Eksa Hoi
Sukh Ke Sab Saathi…

Nothing is mine or yours in this world
Have thoughts like a holy Saint
Be it a King or a Begger.
All have to die the same way

Baahar Ki Tu Maati Phaanke
Man Ke Bheetar Kyun Na Jhaanke
Ujle Tan Par Maan Kiya
Aur Man Ki Mail Na Dhoi
Sukh Ke Sab Saathi…

We visit holy places

But do not try to peep inside our soul
We feel proud about our looks and our outfits

But do not keep our thoughts pure.

How we feel without Ego? May 25, 2008


Jill Bolte Taylor got a research opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: She had a massive stroke, and watched as her brain functions — motion, speech, self-awareness –- shut down one by one. An astonishing story.

In her case the Ego-left hemisphere of our brain was completely out of order.

This is a perfect example and lesson for us to understand the function of our Ego.  

 

SUBTLE ENERGIES ON PHOTOGRAPHIC FILM April 8, 2008


Some Evidence of Subtle Energies on Photographic Film

William A. Tiller, Ph.D. – SUBTLE ENERGY ACTIONS AND PHYSICAL DOMAIN CORRELATIONS  – CONSCIOUSNESS, INTENTIONALITY AND SUBTLE ENERGIES – Professor Emeritus – Department of Materials Science and Engineering – Stanford University – Stanford, California 94305-2205

During the early 1970s, a gentleman named Stan came to see me about some photographs he had taken. At the time, his camera was a simple Kodak with a plastic lens, and the film was Kodak Kodacolor.
Strange lights and illuminations appeared on the photos. Stan indicated much the same thing happened when other people gave him their cameras to take pictures. He first thought he was a camera klutz. But he eventually realized that the film phenomena correlated with special inner states he could sense and which he felt “energized” the camera. Dark which processed the photographs. In addition to the expected physical scenes, remarkable optical effects were imprinted on the photographs.

The special occasions when the optical effects were most probably to be obtained were (a) at spiritual rock concerts; (b) at religious shrines; and (c) at high-energy metaphysical lectures.

The special inner states involved the following physiological symptoms. Whenever he would sense a particular feeling in his 7th cervical plus 4th thoracic vertebrae and snapped a picture, he would invariably find some anomaly present on the subsequent photograph. In addition to the expected physical scenes, remarkable optical effects were imprinted on the photographs. His camera had been sent to Kodak and certified to be in good working order. The photographs were also sent to Kodak specialists to determine what kind of picture-taking error had transpired. ….

Over a fifteen-year period, out of 9,000 photographs taken 5,000 contained easily distinguishable anomalies. During all of this time, his only intention during the picture-taking process was “to reveal God’s universe.”

In a series of studies I carried out with this man, two cameras were utilized. One camera was sensitized by the man, the other was not. Both were mounted on a single tripod with a single shutter release. Standard Kodak color film and standard Kodak processing were used, and the man was never allowed to touch the film during loading or unloading.

Most photo pairs showed very significant differences. The photos from the sensitized camera would often show one or more people in the frame as somewhat transparent over a portion of their body so that objects behind them could clearly been seen through the transparent (translucent) portion. However, the photos from the unsensitized camera showed their bodies fully formed and opaque as one would expect. In other single camera experiments, the opaque lens cap was placed on the sensitized camera, but remarkably clear photographs THROUGH this opaque barrier were still obtained.

This man appeared to be able to sensitize any camera merely by keeping it close to his body for several days.
After he had fully sensitized a camera (or charged it up with his subtle energies), it could be passed to someone else to take the pictures. Some anomalies would continue to appear on the photographs for the next hour, after which time period no further anomalies would appear.

Certain deductions can be made from this study.

 

(1) Some kind of radiations exists in nature that can travel through materials that are normally opaque to visible light.
(2) Such radiations, which may be normally present in nature, can be imaged via the camera onto the film by some quality inherent in this man’s energy field, and register an imprint at the physical level of the silver halide grains of the film.
(3) Some “energy soaking time” is needed for the camera to acquire this anomalous capacity after placing it in the special energy field of this man.
(4) This acquired anomalous capacity leaks away with a time constant of about l hour – unless continually “pumped” by the energy field of this particular man.

 

 

QUAN YIN: THE GODDESS OF COMPASSION AND MERCY March 2, 2008

 Quan Yin is one of the most universally beloved of deities in the Buddhist tradition. Also known as Kuan Yin, Quan’Am  (Vietnam), Kannon   (Japan), and Kanin (Bali), She is the embodiment of compassionate loving kindness. As the Bodhisattva of  Compassion, She hears the cries of all beings. Quan Yin enjoys a strong resonance with the Christian Mary, the Mother of  Jesus, and the Tibetan goddess Tara.

In many images She is depicted carrying the pearls of illumination. Often Quan Yin is shown pouring a stream of healing water, the “Water of Life” from a small vase. With this water devotees and all living things are blessed with physical and spiritual peace. She holds a sheaf of ripe rice or a bowl of rice seed as a metaphor for fertility and sustenance. The dragon, an ancient symbol for high spirituality, wisdom, strength, and divine powers of transformation, is a common motif found in combination with the Goddess of Mercy.

Sometimes Kuan Yin is represented as a many armed figure, with each hand either containing a different cosmic symbol or expressing a specific ritual position, or mudra. This characterizes the Goddess as the source and sustenance of all things. Her cupped hands often form the Yoni Mudra, symbolizing the womb as the door for entry to this world through the universal female principle.

Quan Yin, as a true Enlightened One, or Bodhisattva, vowed to remain in the earthly realms and not enter the heavenly worlds until all other living things have completed their own enlightenment and thus become liberated from the pain-filled cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.

 There are numerous legends that recount the miracles which Quan Yin performs to help those who call on Her. Like Artemis, She is a virgin Goddess who protects women, offers them a religious life as an alternative to marriage, and grants children to those who desire them. 

The Goddess of Mercy is unique among the heavenly hierarchy in that She is so utterly free from pride or vengefulness that She remains reluctant to punish even those to whom a severe lesson might be appropriate. Individuals who could be sentenced to dreadful penance in other systems can attain rebirth and renewal by simply calling upon Her graces with utter and absolute sincerity. It is said that, even for one kneeling beneath the executioner’s sword already raised to strike, a single heartfelt cry to Bodhisattva Quan Yin will cause the blade to fall shattered to the ground.

The many stories and anecdotes featuring this Goddess serve to convey the idea of an enlightened being who embodies the attributes of an all pervasive, all consuming, unwavering loving compassion and who is accessible to everyone. Quan Yin counsels us by Her actions to cultivate within ourselves those particular refined qualities that all beings are said to naturally possess in some vestigial form.

 Contemplating the Goddess of Mercy involves little dogma or ritual. The simplicity of this gentle being and Her standards tends to lead Her devotees towards becoming more compassionate and loving themselves. A deep sense of service to all fellow beings naturally follows any devotion to the Goddess.
