Magical Tree 11 – Come out of foolishness

Magical Tree 11 – Come out of foolishness

यदा किञ्चिज्ञोऽहं द्विप इव मदान्धः समभवं
तदा सर्वज्ञोऽस्मीत्यभवदवलिप्तं मम मनः ।
यदा किञ्चित् किञ्चित् बुधजनसकाशादवगतं
तदा मूर्खोऽस्मीति ज्वर इव मदो मे व्यपगतः

When I had little knowledge I was blind with conceit like a rutty elephant.  I thought I was knowing everything and my vanity was great. Then gradually, by virtue of my association with wise men, i realised that knowledge was a vast ocean.  My intoxication vanished like a fever and I realized that I was really a fool.

In my words : Every person whom i meet ..knows something which am not aware of ….which means no one person is a completely learned man ….everytime we learn something it opens a door to another ocean of knowledge room…If we ever feel that we are more educated , wise , learned then it means we have simply closed the learning door of our brain….It is utter foolishness if someone behaves rudely thinking that he is the most learned person because what we have learnt is just a drop and what we are yet to learn is a ocean…..

I learnt to learn from every person atleast one lesson and especially to be in the group of wise men who can lead me from the well of ignorance to path of knowledge – did you ?

दृष्टिपूतं न्येसेत्पादं वस्त्रपूतं जलं पिबेत्।

Step on a place after seeing that it is clean, drink water after filtering it through a piece of cloth, utter your words purified by truth, do such deeds which, your conscience says, are good.

Magical Tree 3 – Wish to be Wise

Magical Tree 3 – Wish to be Wise

अर्थनाशं मनस्तापं गृहे दुश्चरितानि च । 
वञ्चनं चापमानं च मतिमान् न प्रकाशयेत् ॥

Wise people do not talk about – (Or do not display)
loss of wealth,
sadness in heart,
family scandal,
getting cheated, and insult.

Magical Tree 1- Wish for true jewel

Magical Tree – Wish for true jewel

केयूराणि न भूषयन्ति पुरुषं हारा न चन्द्रोज्ज्वला
न स्नानं न विलेपनं न कुसुमं नालङ्कृता मूर्धजाः  ।
वाण्येका समलङ्करोति पुरुषं या संस्कृता धार्यते
क्षीयन्ते खलु भूषणानि सततं वाग्भूषणं भूषणं

Bracelets do not adorn a person. Nor do pearl necklaces shining like the moon, or a cleansing bath; nor anointment of the body, nor flowers, nor decoration for the hair. It is cultured speech alone which embellishes a man. All other ornaments lose their glitter, only the jewel of speech ever remains the jewel of jewels.
(Source – Bhrtruhari – Neetishatakam) 

In my words : Spending hours together in front of mirror , wearing most expensive clothes, Jewels & ornaments will not bring you knowledge or respect …it is our cultured speech and behavior which brings us respect. Anyone can wear expensive jewels my friends , but only few are respected because they have the true jewels -that is cultured thoughts, cultured speech and cultured behavior …..

I learnt from the above lesson – did you ?

Fools Who Fooled Other Fools

This is about  fools who fooled other fools.
Am just talking about so called fools who call themselves to be  “GOD MAN”. In recent years there are quite a lot of incidents where people are evidencing too many “GOD MAN”sssss . If everyone is a GOD MAN then where are ordinary people who can be his followers ..?? 

Our world has witnessed many great saints, great men, extraordinary human beings be it from any country any religion but all these great souls did good to others for betterment of society and for universal peace…..none of these people ever claimed that they are “GOD MAN” they just believed and did everything good …thinking that it is their duty and purpose of their birth.

But in recent times playing a role of GOD MAN has become a fashion and a new way of business to make money. Nothing dangerous than this because the entire world lives in believing one or the other ground rules laid by either religion or certain principles of human race and these self proclaimed GOD MANs utilise this simple fact of life and exploit the innocence and beliefs of thousands of people. It sounds harmless initially but it can shake the entire nation any time.

My simple opinion
True blessed souls will never show case their wisdom, will never ask you to follow them, will never say they are great , will never say they are GOD or GOD MAN and very importantly it is highly impossible for us to get to see any real GOD MAN in today’s situation because at present many of us don’t behave like human beings in this case….how can you expect to see a GOD MAN?

My simple suggestion

“If you want to follow a person whom you believe to be doing miracles then follow him with your eyes wide open so that you can see the miracles in reality, please don’t follow blind folded because those miracles might be just illusions “

Remember
If you show yourself to be a fool then every person is a master born to fool you….. 

Please be wise in choosing whom to follow …there have been many great souls in past who have really done wonders to society and it was we who called them “GOD MAN”..but they just believed themselves to be a follower like us. So choose from them and have a better life….don’t go wrong as some else might be following you…

Finally 
Follow the “Goddess in the form of wisdom” in a person and not just the person alone.

Everything I have written is my personal opinion with a social concern please do leave a reply about your views and suggestions
