Association with the sadhu

Association with the sadhu

कुज्जा साहूहिं संथवं

Contacts must be maintained with the Sadhus

Eulogy means to know, contact or association. Association influences the whole life. It opens the door of progress. An insect is able to reach the head of the idol because of its association with the flowers. One small river or canal can reach far beyond its power by associating with Gangas, into the gem-filled sea. On the other hand, association with the crooked opens the door of failures. Living with evil men, one adopts evil ways of life, enjoys evil – his all round downfall starts. Continue reading “Association with the sadhu” »

Banī miṭṭī kī saba bājī

Listen to Banī miṭṭī kī saba bājī

Capable of improving the self and others

Capable of improving the self and others

अलमप्पणो होंति अलं परेसिं

Wise men are capable in improving the self and others

Stone-boat sinks itself and let others also sink; but the boat made of wood floats itself and allow others also to float in it. This is the difference between a wise man and an ignorant. Ignorant aimlessly wanders in this world and make the dependants also drift along showing them wrong way of life; but the wise men neither gets astray nor lets others go off course. They are able to liberate themselves and liberate others also, they are wise themselves and also preach others, they free themselves and make others also free.

The Fast-breaking of the Lord

The Fast breaking of the Lord
When he saw the Master coming, the Heir-apparent instantly ran on foot, outstripping even the footmen. Because the Prince ran without his umbrella and shoes, the assembly, also without umbrella and shoes, ran after him like his shadow. Bounding along in haste, his ear-rings dangling, the Heir-apparent looked as if he were again indulging in childish play before the Master. Sreyansa threw himself at the feet of the Lord, who was in the court of the house, and wiped his lotus-feet with his hair resembling a chauri. Continue reading “The Fast-breaking of the Lord” »

Extinction of accumulated karma

Extinction of accumulated karma

तुट्टन्ति पावकम्माणि
नवं कम्ममकुव्वओ

One who does not bind new karma, his past karma are annihilated

Whatever we eat does not go out through the doors of the body organs. Some of it goes out as rejects and some sticks to the intestines and what is absorbed there produces many sicknesses. Health consultants say that we should give rest to the stomach once in a week through fasting. When new intakes do not go in the stomach then deposited dirt will also come out.
