A Spring Festival

A Spring Festival
One day, when Spring, the abode of love, had come, the Lord went to a garden to please his retinue. There in a bower of flowers, the Master of the World, adorned with ornaments of flowers, sat like Spring personified. The Laksmi of Spring, as it were, gave welcome to the Lord of the World by humming bees intoxicated by the juice of blossoming mango-trees. An overture, as it were, being performed by cuckoos singing the fifth note, the wind from Malaya, the leader of the dance, showed the dance of the creepers. Continue reading “A Spring Festival” »

Neither love, nor hate

Neither love, nor hate

सव्वं जगं तु समयाणुपेही,
पियमप्पियं कस्स वि नो करेज्जा

One who sees the entire world with equanimity, he neither favors nor disfavors anyone

Feelings are the inspiring agents of all our actions. If they are pure, then all our actions will be pure and if they are impure then our actions will be impure. Continue reading “Neither love, nor hate” »

Doubt not

Doubt not

वितिगिच्छासमावेणं अप्पाणेणं
नो लहइ समाहिं

Doubtful can never get liberated

An aspirant before starting his meditation listens to the guru. From that, he gets interest in the scriptures. Then, studying the scriptures on his own, he selects a path, understands the best way of life, considers the pros and cons, and after thinking firms up his faith and then starts on his journey. He continues to walk until he does not attain his goal. Continue reading “Doubt not” »

Do not talk ill behind someone’s back

Do not talk ill behind someone’s back

पिट्ठिमंसं न खाएज्जा

One should not talk ill of others in their absence

To talk ill of someone behind his back is a sign of cowardice. If our intention is to remove the fault of a man, then we should tell his faults in his presence only so that he can reflect on them and eliminate the same. Continue reading “Do not talk ill behind someone’s back” »

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” »
