Stay happy, healthy and safe – 60

  • This world is like a mountain.
    Your echo depends on you.
    If you scream good things,
    the world will give it back.
    If you scream bad things,
    the world will give it back.
    Even if someone says badly about you,
    speak well about him.
    Change your heart to change the world.

Stay happy, healthy and safe – 47

Your hand can seize today,

but not tomorrow;

and thoughts of your tomorrow are nothing but desire.

Don’t waste this breath,

if your heart isn’t crazy, since

“the rest of your life” won’t last forever.


― Omar Khayyám, Quatrains – Ballades

Stay happy, healthy and safe – 44

Every heart sings a song, incomplete,

until another heart whispers back.

Those who wish to sing always find a song.

At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.

 

 

 
― Plato

Stay Happy, Healthy and Safe – 41

 

The universe is a complete unique entity. Everything and everyone is bound together with some invisible strings. Do not break heart; do not look down on weaker than you. One’s sorrow at the other side of the world can make the entire world suffer; one’s happiness can make the entire world smile.

– Shams Tabrizi

Stay happy, healthy and safe- 34

Peace doesn’t mean to be in a place

where there is no noise, trouble or hard work.

It means to be in

the Midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.

Let go of your worries

Let go of your worries.

and be completely clear-hearted,

like the face of a mirror.

that contains no images.

If you want a clear mirror,

behold yourself

and see the shameless truth,

which the mirror reflects.

If metal can be polished

to a mirror-like finish,

what polishing might the mirror

of the heart require?

Between the mirror and the heart

is this single difference:

the heart conceals secrets,

while the mirror does not.

The Divani Shamsi Tabriz, XIII

I swear !

I swear, since seeing Your face,

the whole world is fraud and fantasy

The garden is bewildered as to what is leaf or blossom.

The distracted birds

can’t distinguish the birdseed from the snare.

A house of love with no limits,

a presence more beautiful than venus or the moon,

a beauty whose image fills the mirror of the heart.

Rumi, The Divani Shamsi Tabriz XV

क्या आप जानते हैं? महारामायण या योग वशिष्ठ क्या है?

Maharamayan or Yoga Vasistha – The Science of Self Realization and the Art of Self Realisation.
The Yoga Vasistha is a  detailed conversation between Sri Rama and his Spiritual teacher Vasistha Maharshi.

Rate this:

योग वशिष्ठ  को ‘महारामायण’ कहा जाता है क्योंकि इसमें वाल्मीकि रामायण से लगभग चार हजार अधिक श्लोक हैं। इसमें करीब 32,000 श्लोक हैं और विषय को समझाने के लिए बहुत सी लघु कहानियां और किस्से इसमें शामिल किए गए हैं। योग वशिष्ठ एक हिंदू आध्यात्मिक ग्रंथ है। जिसे रामायण के लेखक महर्षि वाल्मीकि ने लिखा है। यह आत्म बोध का विज्ञान और आत्म बोध की कला दोनों है। योग वशिष्ठ, श्री राम और उनके आध्यात्मिक गुरु वशिष्ठ महर्षि के बीच एक विस्तृत बातचीत है। अतः मान्यता है कि मानव मन में उठने वाले सभी सवालों के जवाब यह ग्रंथ दे सकता है और मोक्ष पाने में इंसान की मदद कर सकता है। 

Vasistha to Rama –

When the mind is at peace and the heart leaps to the supreme truth, when all the disturbing thought- waves in the mind-stuff have subsided and there is unbroken flow of peace and the heart is filled with the bliss of the absolute, when thus the truth has been seen in the heart, then this very world becomes an abode of bliss.

(II:12)

वशिष्ठ राम से – जब मन शांत  होता है और हृदय सर्वोच्च सत्य की अग्रसर होता है, जब सभी परेशानियाँ व विचार- मन में तरंगें थम जाती हैं और शांति का अखंड प्रवाह होता है और हृदय इस तरह पूर्ण आनंद से भर जाता है, जब सत्य को हृदय में देखा गया है, तब यह संसार आनंदमय बन जाता है।
