Over the ages
You have followed objects,
Never once turning back
To look within.
Time slips away;
Months and years

Keep in mind that equanimity is most important – Message from Guruji S N Goenkaji

Keep in mind that equanimity is most important for you. The type of sensation you feel doesnot matter.

Whenever a deep-rooted sankhara comes to the surface, it will produce a particular type of sensation, but don’t assume that every sensation you feel is because of a sankhara.

When you are meditating, it is true that most of […]

Declaration of principles

1] All human beings are different. And should do everything possible to continue to be so.

2] Each human being has been granted two courses of action: that of deed and that of contemplation. Both lead to the same place.

3] Each human being has been granted two qualities: power and gift. Power drives a person to meet his/her destiny, his gift obliges that person to share with others which is good in him/her. A human being must know when to use power, and when to use compassion.

Gujarati Story – Why we have to Thanks to GOD for every thing and every second

મૃત્યુના મસ્તીભર્યા ગીતો સુણાવી જાય છે, જિંદગી પણ કયારેક ગેલમાં આવી જાય છે- શૂન્ય પાલનપુરી
એક ધનવાન માણસ હતો. દરિયામાં એકલા ફરવા તેણે બોટ વસાવી હતી. રજાના દિવસે તે પોતાની બોટમાં દરિયો ખુંદવા નીકળ્યો. મધદરિયે પહોંચ્યો ત્યાં દરિયામાં તોફાન આવ્યું. બોટ ડૂબવા લાગી. બોટ બચવાની કોઇ શકયતા ન લાગી ત્યારે એણે લાઇફ જેકેટ પહેરીને દરિયામાં પડતું […]

It’s not insomnia

As the night
Covers the world
With darkness
I wake up
Restless
Sleepless
Dreamless

A quiet within
Silence without
Interspersed with breaths
Of a million
Dead souls
Dead to you. Your world.

On the pillows
A thousand imaginary worlds take shape
Worlds that evoke
Love in some
Fear in others

My bed however
Has an inhabitant
In the real world

Once you wake up, Bhakta,

There’s no sleep

There is no need of judging people – Osho

There is no need of Judging people;
you have to understand why you judge and how you judge..

You can only judge behavior because only behavior is available.
You cannot judge the person because the person is hiding behind,
the person is a mystery.

Your judgment shows something about you,
nothing about the person you have judged
because his history remains unavailable […]

Krsna

They decked you with flowers
Crowned you with gold
Laid marble at your feet
They have covered your body
With the finest silks
Burnt the most fragrant incense sticks
Worshipped you with aartis
Singing loud enough to wake up the world
The prasadam is as rich
As your king’s own meal
Poor me,
I do not think
I am fit enough
To be your devotee
But let me tell […]

Victory in defeat

I give in
Once more

You win, Lord
At your petty games
Oh yes, I am human
Destined to give in
To your greater wisdom
Your might
Your will

And why not?
I have neither the power
Nor the arms
To hit back
At your destiny

And therefore
I the mortal
I the vanquished
I the worshipper
Stand at your altar
Ready to be sacrificed again

Jogan

They who call you an idol
Do they know
Their own reality is suspect?

They, who apply vermilion
By parting their hair
What do they know
What being wedded means?

They who have never tasted
The nectar of your love
What do they know
Of drinking poison?

They have heard only
The call of your temples
What do they know
Of the calling?

They, who have mastered
The mantras by rote
What […]

Souls too, like rivulets and plants, needed a different kind of rain: hope, faith, a reason to live. When did not come to pass, everything in that soul died, even if the body went on living; and the people could say: “Here in this body there was once a man.”
