    Don’t surrender your loneliness so quickly. Let it cut you more deep. Let it ferment and season you as few humans and even divine ingredients can. Something missing in my heart tonight has made my eyes so soft, my voice so tender, my need for God absolutely clear.

    Spiritual practice is will asserted and re-asserted. Who has not the daring will not accept the real even when offered. Unwillingness born out of fear is the only obstacle.

    Why so many Gods – Jay Lakhani 

     

    Following is a record of the conversation in Jay Lakhani’s video:

     

    Question :

    In Hinduism, there are many forms of God. So we follow Ram, we follow Sita, we follow Krishna. But is there one particular form of God that we should be praying to – be it Matarani or be it Krishna, or are they all just representatives of one sole God?

     

    Answer :

    OK. This question actually worries or confuses lot of Hindu youngsters. And forgets about the Hindus, it confuses the non-Hindus even more. They think this weird religion has got so many Gods.

    And if I ask all of you, “Look Shiva, this is ultimate, almighty?”
    You say “Yes”.
    “Vishnu?”
    “Yes”
    “Ultimate, almighty?”
    “Yes”
    “Ultimate?”
    “Yes”
    “And Mother Goddess?”
    “Of course, Mother Goddess, how can you forget them? She is ultimate too”

    This is kind of a contradiction. Come on, you cannot have too many “ultimate”s. This is not ultimate enough. So which one is the right one? Can the real God stand up please?  That is what she was asking in a nice way.

    What is the answer? The answer is this. It is very interesting. You see this is important for you to know. It is very good that the question comes from you.

    This religion that appears polytheistic….

    It is called polytheism. Many gods.
    Then you all say yes. Many Gods. Yes. We all go Yeah.

    Actually it is not polytheist. It appears polytheist but is actually pluralist. It says, the same ultimate reality that you are trying to relate to, you can call it by different names and give it different forms. Names and forms can be different, but same reality – ultimate reality.

    So, not many Gods – but many ways to think about God. This is a big difference.

    If you say many Gods, you say naive, not well thought out religion at all. They have not thought it out properly.

    And then, when you say many ways to think about God that is grand, that is majestic. It allows different individuals to relate to the idea of spirituality in his own individual mode.

    So different groups will say “We love Krishna.”
    “OK, sing his glory.”
    “Oh! We like Shiva.”
    “Go for it my friends.”
    The way you are relating to the ultimate is through the name and form of Shiva. Go for it.

    This is the answer.

    The name the Hindus give to the comprehensive idea of God is, you’d be surprised, is Brahman. The word Brahman there is no person like Brahma is different person, not Brahma. Brahman-Brahma.

    The world Brahman means spirit, not as a person at all but as a principle that underpins reality. They said the whole of this creation is nothing but an expression of this principle. Look, not a person – a principle that becomes visible, manifested as the world we see in front of us. And the same principle, Brahman, becomes more visible, (because) clearer as living things and the most clearest vision of Brahman, this principle, is humanity – men and women.

    That is why I said you are the clearest manifestation of God on earth. Where else will you find your God? He is lighting you up. Not you, everybody.

    So this is a principle oriented religion but then it allows a personalized approach. Because, in that case why shouldn’t we just go Brahman and why should we bother with Ram and Krishna and Shiva and Mother? The reason we have to bother is because we are human – and we got human failings, if you like, human limitations.

    If we are human, the only way we can build a relationship with this principle called Brahman, is to think of this principle as a personality.

    Suppose I say “Build relation with Brahman”.
    You say “What do I do now?”
    I say “No, No, No, think of mother Goddess, sweet with flowing hair” and you want to say “Mommy”.
    It is easy to build relationship.

    With Brahman how do you build a relationship? It is a principle, it is abstract. When you turn the principle into a personality, then you can build friendship, relationship, like a mother figure, father figure, friend.

    See the Hindu religion is the only one that allows you to think of God in a variety of different ways. Not just father in heaven, like Christianity. Mommy in heaven. Why not mommy? Mommies are sweeter, kinder, cuddlier, less hairy than daddies. Why can’t you go like “Mommy”? Why daddy all the time? Why fixation? In fact the Gayatri (Mantra) that you just recited, gives you the clue of the Hindu tradition. This is what it translates as. Let us meditate on the glorious effulgence of that supreme being that created the universe. May she enlighten our hearts and direct our destination.  She. Addressing God as She. The central part of Hindus think God is a woman.

    See? Because we are human, we like to relate to this principle in a human manner, that is why we create all this imagery. Lets go for it. The same one becomes all this.
    People say, how do you reconcile principle and personality?

    This is how they reconcile. It is like ice and water. Water is fuzzy, like no shape nothing, just fuzzy. When you freeze it, it can take on different forms. It is the love of the devotee that freezes this principle called Brahman into the various forms that he likes. Suppose I like to think of God as Shiva, this principle reduces itself and becomes Shiva and comes in front of me and interacts with me. This is Hinduism.

    The love of the devotee freezes his principle into the personality of his choice. See the power of religion. Real democracy. Spiritual democracy.

    Kya Karega Pyar Woh – क्या करेगा प्यार वह 

    क्या करेगा प्यार वह भगवान को?

    What love can he give to God?

    क्या करेगा प्यार वह ईमान को ?

    What love can he give to Religion?

    जन्म लेकर गोद में इन्सान की

    प्यार कर पाया न जो इन्सान को ।
    Pyar kar paaya na jo insaan ko
    He who cannot love the human kind

    A New Year’s Greeting – Reverend William D. Smith 

    Text below was printed in a religious periodical called “The Christian Work and Evangelist” in January 1904.

    I wish you Health enough to make work a pleasure;
    Wealth enough to supply all necessary needs;
    Grit enough to battle with difficulty and overcome it;
    Grace enough to confess your sins and forsake them;
    and Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished.

    I wish you a Cheerfulness that shall make others glad;
    a Charity that shall see some good in your neighbor;
    a Love that shall move you to be useful and helpful;
    a Faith that shall make real the things of God;
    and a Hope that shall remove all anxious fear concerning the Future.

    I wish you the Dignity which befits the children of God;
    the Humility which is needed in every follower of Christ;
    the Prayerfulness which develops and enriches the soul;
    the Push and Progress which were manifested in the life and labors of our Saviour;
    and the Piety and Perseverance which come from the abiding presence and influence of the Divine Spirit.

    The Rock – T.S. Eliot 

    The Eagle soars in the summit of Heaven,
    The Hunter with his dogs pursues his circuit.

    O perpetual revolution of configured stars,
    O perpetual recurrence of determined seasons,
    O world of spring and autumn, birth and dying!

    The endless cycle of idea and action,
    Endless invention, endless experiment,
    Brings knowledge of motion, but not of stillness;
    Knowledge of speech, but not of silence;
    Knowledge of words, and ignorance of the Word.
    All our knowledge brings us nearer to death,
    But nearness to death no nearer to God.

    Where is the Life we have lost in living?
    Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
    Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?

    The cycles of heaven in twenty centuries
    Brings us farther from God and nearer to the Dust.
    The lot of man is ceaseless labor,
    Or ceaseless idleness, which is still harder,
    Or irregular labour, which is not pleasant.

    I have trodden the winepress alone, and I know
    That it is hard to be really useful, resigning
    The things that men count for happiness, seeking
    The good deeds that lead to obscurity, accepting
    With equal face those that bring ignominy,
    The applause of all or the love of none.

    All men are ready to invest their money
    But most expect dividends.
    I say to you: Make perfect your will.
    I say: take no thought of the harvest,
    But only of proper sowing.

    The world turns and the world changes,
    But one thing does not change.
    In all of my years, one thing does not change,
    However you disguise it, this thing does not change:
    The perpetual struggle of Good and Evil.

    -T.S.Eliot

    Live a good life. If there are Gods and they are just, then they will not care about how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are Gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no Gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will love on in the memories of your loved ones.

    Quote from Wokini 

    In my youth I respected the world and life, I needed not anything but peace of heart;

    And yet I changed despite myself and believed in Iktumi’s lies. He seemed to know all the truth, he promised to make me happy.

    He made me ask Wakantanka for wealth, that I might have power; I was given poverty, that I might find my inner strength.

    I asked for fame, so others would know me; I was given obscurity, that I might know myself.

    I asked for a person to love that I might never be alone; I was given a life of a hermit, that I might learn to accept myself.

    I asked for power, that I might achieve; I was given weakness, that I might learn to obey.

    I asked for health, that I might lead a long life; I was given infirmity, that I might appreciate each minute.

    I asked Mother Earth for strength, that I might have my way; I was given weakness, that I might feel the need for Her.

    I asked to live happily, that I might enjoy life; I was given life, that I might live happily.

    I received nothing I asked for, yet all my wishes came true. Despite myself and Iktumi, my dreams were fulfilled.

    I am richly blessed more than I ever hoped, I thank you, Wakantanka, for what you’ve given me.

    From Wakan-Tanka, the Great Mystery, comes all power. It is from Wakan-Tanka that the holy man has wisdom and the power to heal and make holy charms. Man knows that all healing plants are given by Wakan-Tanka, therefore they are holy. So too is the buffalo holy, because it is the gift of Wakan-Tanka.

    Story : Get back into your natural element 

    Years ago, I was walking along the sea shore and I saw a little fish about three or four inches in size. But this little fish was in so much worry, flapping again and again, lying on the dry sand. I do not know whether it was a male fish or a female one. Let’s say it was a male fish, so that the fish could be addressed as ‘he’. So I looked in his eyes and he just looked in total confusion, frustration and misery. Somehow or other a wave had washed this little fish up and there he was, lying on the sand. The fish could not breathe properly. He was flapping and suffering.

    Now I could have got a female fish and put next to him; would that be of any help? I could have got some mango lassi with some nice sanitized straw and put it next to him. I could have got him a diamond ring or a ruby crown. I could have offered him a BMW. Would anything of that make him happy?

    Because he was out of his natural element, nothing could make him happy. So I tried to pick up that little fish and throw him back into the ocean. But he was so intensely worrying that every time I picked him up he just flapped so hard that he flapped right out of hand back into the sand. And I picked him again, but again he flapped out of my hand into the sand. At least 5 times I picked him up and he flapped out.

    I was his well wisher trying to save his life but he could not recognize me, because he was just in such a state of trauma. Finally, with both my hands I cupped him and trapped him so he couldn’t get out; then I threw him as far as I could into the ocean.

Prajñānam as a whole means: प्रज्ञान, “prajJAna”, Adjective: prudent, easily known, wise Noun: discrimination, knowledge, wisdom, intelligence. “Consciousness” “Intelligence” “Wisdom Related terms are jnana, prajna and prajnam, “pure consciousness”. Although the common translation of jnanam is “consciousness”, the term has a broader meaning of “knowing”; “becoming acquainted with”, “knowledge about anything”,”awareness”, “higher knowledge”. Brahman: “The Absolute” “Infinite” “The Highest truth” Most interpretations state: “Prajñānam (noun) is Brahman (adjective)”. Some translations give a reverse order, stating “Brahman is Prajñānam”, specifically “Brahman (noun) is Prajñānam (adjective)”. “The Ultimate Reality is wisdom (or consciousness)”.

    What you will be 

    Source : http://www.godswork.org/enpoem178.htm

    What You Will Be

    As I gazed up at the mountains, I was awed by their majesty;
    I bowed my head and asked myself, “Why should He care for me?
    I am not great like the mountains that tower so high above,
    What is there about me that God can find to love?”

    “Father, I am not strong like the wind that makes your tall trees sway,
    I cannot sing sweetly like your birds; will you love me anyway?
    But most of all, I am simply me, and often have cause to fear,
    In spite of all my weaknesses, do you promise to be near?”

    With eyes closed tight against my tears, I wished He could hear me pray.
    Then I felt His Spirit tell me, “Child, look up, I have something to say.
    “You are simply you, the spirit I love, a part of my great plan.
    I put you here to learn of life and to return to me again.”

    “You are more beautiful to me than the loveliest mountain I made,
    And your strength exceeds that of the wind’s, so do not be afraid.
    I love you not for what you are, but for what I know you will be.
    I am always beside you watching you grow, you are very special to me.”

    A smile touched my lips – I knew it was true, my Father had always been there
    Giving me comfort and blessings and love and my own special talents to share.
    So I do my best to make Him proud. I am not afraid, for you see,
    He loves me not for what I am, but for what He knows I will be.

    Properties of God 

    What are the properties of God?

    Who knows Him does not describe Him and who describes Him does not know Him.

    Lyrics : Ae Malik Tere Bande Hum 

    ऐ मालिक तेरे बन्दे हम – Ae Malik Tere Bande Hum
    Movie/Album: दो आँखें बारह हाथ (1957)
    Music By: वसंत देसाई
    Lyrics By: भरत व्यास

    ऐ मालिक तेरे बन्दे हम
    ऐसे हों हमारे करम
    नेकी पर चलें और बदी से टलें,
    ताकि हंसते हुए निकले दम

    बड़ा कमज़ोर है आदमी, अभी लाखों हैं इसमें कमी
    पर तू जो खड़ा, है दयालू बड़ा
    तेरी किरपा से धरती थमी

    दिया तूने हमें जब जनम
    तू ही झेलेगा हम सबके ग़म

    नेकी पर चलें और बदी से टलें,
    ताकि हंसते हुए निकले दम

     

    ये अंधेरा घना छा रहा, तेरा इंसान घबरा रहा
    हो रहा बेखबर, कुछ न आता नज़र
    सुख का सूरज छुपा जा रहा

    है तेरी रोशनी में जो दम
    तो अमावस को कर दे पूनम

    नेकी पर चलें और बदी से टलें,
    ताकि हंसते हुए निकले दम

    जब ज़ुल्मों का हो सामना, तब तू ही हमें थामना
    वो बुराई करें, हम भलाई भरें
    नहीं बदले की हो कामना

    बढ़ उठे प्यार का हर कदम
    और मिटे बैर का ये भरम

    नेकी पर चलें और बदी से टलें,
    ताकि हंसते हुए निकले दम

    Ethilum Ingu Iruppan Lyrics – எதிலும் இங்கு இருப்பான் அவன் யாரோ 

    The lyrics below are from the sound track “Ethilum Ingu Iruppan” from the Tamil film Bharathi.

    எதிலும் இங்கு இருப்பான் அவன் யாரோ?
    எனக்குள் அவன் இருப்பான் அறிவாரோ?

    தவழும் நதியை தரித்த முடியான்
    அடியும் முடியும் அறிய முடியான்
    எளிய அடியர் ஓதும் வேத நாதமாகி
    எதிலும் இங்கு இருப்பான் அவன் யாரோ?
    எனக்குள் அவன் இருப்பான் அறிவாரோ?

    வரிப்புலி அதழ் தரித்தவன் எழில் கண்டேன்
    பிறப்பெனும் பிணி அறுப்பவன் துணை கொண்டேன்
    தமிழ்க்கவி தரும் எனக்கொறு வரம்  தரத் திருவுளம் வேண்டும்
    சகத்தினுக்கெனைத் தர தகும் நெறி வகுத்திட துணை வேண்டும்
    ஆலம் கரு நீலம் என தெரியும் ஒரு கண்டன்
    அண்டும் திருத்தொண்டன் எனும் அடியார்க்கொரு தொண்டன்
    பற்றுத் தளைக்கு நெருப்பவன்
    ஒற்றை கணத்தில் அழிப்பவன்
    நெற்றிப் பிரைக்குள் நெருப்பை வளர்த்து
    எதிலும் இங்கு இருப்பான் அவன் யாரோ?
    எனக்குள் அவன் இருப்பான்அறிவாரோ?

    தொடக்கமும் அதன் அடக்கமும் அவன் வேலை
    நடப்பதும் அதை தடுப்பதும் அவன் லீலை
    உடுக்களில் சரம் தொடுத்தவன் தலை முடிக்கணியவும் கூடும்
    பெருக்கலும் அதை வகுத்தலும் அதை கழித்தலும் அவன் பாடம்
    மாறும் யுகம்தோறும் அவன் கணக்கின் படியாகும்
    மண்ணும் உயர் விண்ணும் அவன் ஒரு கைப்பிடியாகும்
    சட்டம் அனைத்தும் வகுத்தவன்
    திட்டம் அனைத்தும் தொகுத்தவன்
    முற்றப் படித்து முடித்த  ஒருத்தன்
    எதிலும் இங்கு இருப்பான் அவன் யாரோ?
    எனக்குள் அவன் இருப்பான் அறிவாரோ?

    தவழும் நதியை தரித்த முடியான்
    அடியும் முடியும் அறிய முடியான்
    எளிய அடியர் ஓதும் வேத நாதமாகி
    எதிலும் இங்கு இருப்பான் அவன் யாரோ?
    எனக்குள் அவன் இருப்பான் அறிவாரோ?

    Nallathor veenai seidhe lyrics – நல்லதோர் வீணை செய்தே 

    The lyrics below are from the sound track “Nallathor veenai seidhe” from the Tamil film Bharathi.

    நல்லதோர் வீணைசெய்தே
    அதை நலங்கெடப் புழுதியில் எறிவதுண்டோ?
    நல்லதோர் வீணைசெய்தே
    அதை நலங்கெடப் புழுதியில் எறிவதுண்டோ?

    சொல்லடி சிவசக்தி!
    எனைச் சுடர்மிகும் அறிவுடன் படைத்தது விட்டாய்.
    சொல்லடி சிவசக்தி!
    எனைச் சுடர்மிகும் அறிவுடன் படைத்தது விட்டாய்.

    வல்லமை தாராயோ
    வல்லமை தாராயோ
    இந்த மாநிலம் பயனுற வாழ்வதற்கே
    வல்லமை தாராயோ
    இந்த மாநிலம் பயனுற வாழ்வதற்கே

    சொல்லடி சிவசக்தி!
    நிலச் சுமையென வாழ்ந்திடப் புரிகுவையோ

    நல்லதோர் வீணைசெய்தே
    அதை நலங்கெடப் புழுதியில் எறிவதுண்டோ?

    தசையினை தீ சுடினும்
    சிவசக்தியை  பாடும்நல் அகம் கேட்டேன்
    நசையறு மனங்கேட்டேன்
    நித்தம் நவமெனச் சுடர்தரும் உயிர்கேட்டேன்
    அசைவறு மதிகேட்டேன்
    இவை அருள்வதில் உனக்கெதும் தடையுளதோ?
    இவை அருள்வதில் உனக்கெதும் தடையுளதோ?

    நல்லதோர் வீணைசெய்தே
    அதை நலங்கெடப் புழுதியில் எறிவதுண்டோ?
    நல்லதோர் வீணைசெய்தே
    அதை நலங்கெடப் புழுதியில் எறிவதுண்டோ?
    —-

    ENGLISH TRANSLATION ADDED 7-MAR-2015

    நல்லதோர் வீணைசெய்தே
    After making a good veena
    அதை நலங்கெடப் புழுதியில் எறிவதுண்டோ?
    Is it thrown away to deteriorate in dust?

    சொல்லடி சிவசக்தி!
    Tell me Sivasakthi
    எனைச் சுடர்மிகும் அறிவுடன் படைத்தது விட்டாய்.
    You created me with intelligence like burning flames

    வல்லமை தாராயோ
    Wont you give me the ability
    இந்த மாநிலம் பயனுற வாழ்வதற்கே
    To live usefully to this great land

    சொல்லடி சிவசக்தி!
    Tell me Sivasakthi
    நிலச் சுமையென வாழ்ந்திடப் புரிகுவையோ
    Will you make life to be a burden to land

    தசையினை தீ சுடினும்
    Even when fire burns the flesh
    சிவசக்தியை பாடும்நல் அகம் கேட்டேன்
    I asked for a good mind that would sing about Sivasakthi

    நசையறு மனங்கேட்டேன்
    I asked for a mind free of petty worries
    நித்தம் நவமெனச் சுடர்தரும் உயிர்கேட்டேன்
    I asked for a life force that would shine bright like a gem everyday
    அசைவறு மதிகேட்டேன்
    I asked for unwavering intelligence
    இவை அருள்வதில் உனக்கெதும் தடையுளதோ?
    Do you have any obstacles in granting these?

    நல்லதோர் வீணைசெய்தே
    After making a good veena
    அதை நலங்கெடப் புழுதியில் எறிவதுண்டோ?
    Is it thrown away to deteriorate in dust?

      hi

      thanks for creating this blog

    • mahakavi2013 091945 on 20160714 Permalink

      You left out an important beginning line in the second stanza. Pl go back and check your text. The beginning line in the second verse is as follows:

      visaiyuRu pandinaip pOl uLLam vENDiayapaDi selum uDal kETTEn

    • Krishnan 231010 on 20160714 Permalink

      This post is about the song from the Tamil movie. The movie song does not include these lines – so I did not include them either.

    • mahakavi2013 015245 on 20160715 Permalink

      I went back to the youtube site to hear the song from the movie segment. The whole song as I mentioned is sung there. Here is the correct lyrics.
      நல்லதோர் வீணைசெய்தே அதை நலங்கெடப் புழுதியில் எறிவதுண்டோ?
      சொல்லடி சிவசக்தி! எனைச் சுடர்மிகும் அறிவுடன் படைத்து விட்டாய்.
      வல்லமை தாராயோ இந்த மாநிலம் பயனுற வாழ்வதற்கே
      சொல்லடி சிவசக்தி! நிலச் சுமையென வாழ்ந்திடப் புரிகுவையோ

      விசையுறு பந்தினைப்போல் உள்ளம் வேண்டிய படிசெலும் உடல் கேட்டேன்
      நசையறு மனங்கேட்டேன் நித்தம் நவமெனச் சுடர்தரும் உயிர்கேட்டேன் தசையினை தீ சுடினும் சிவசக்தியை பாடும்நல் அகம் கேட்டேன்
      அசைவறு மதிகேட்டேன் இவை அருள்வதில் உனக்கெதும் தடையுளதோ?

    Ninnai Charanadainthen Lyrics – நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன் 

    The lyrics below are from the sound track “Ninnai Charanadinthen” from the Tamil film Bharathi.

    நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா,  நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்
    நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா,  நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்
    பொன்னை, உயர்வை, புகழை விரும்பிடும்
    பொன்னை, உயர்வை, புகழை விரும்பிடும்
    என்னை கவலைகள் தின்ன தகாதென்று
    நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா, நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்
    நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா, நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்

    மிடிமையும் அச்சமும் மேவி என் நெஞ்சில்
    மிடிமையும் அச்சமும் மேவி என் நெஞ்சில்
    குடிமை புகுந்தன, கொன்றவை போக்கின்று
    நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா, நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்

    தன் செயல் எண்ணித் தவிப்பது தீர்ந்திங்கு
    நின் செயல் செய்து நிறைவு பெறும் வண்ணம்
    நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா, நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்

    துன்பம் இனி இல்லை, சோர்வில்லை
    சோர்வில்லை, தோற்ப்பில்லை
    நல்லது தீயது நாமறியோம்
    நாமறியோம், நாமறியோம்
    அன்பு நெறியில் அறங்கள் வளர்த்திட
    நல்லது நாட்டுக, தீமையை ஓட்டுக
    நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா, நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்
    நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா, நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்
    பொன்னை, உயர்வை, புகழை விரும்பிடும்
    பொன்னை, உயர்வை, புகழை விரும்பிடும்

    என்னை கவலைகள் தின்ன தகாதென்று
    நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா, நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்
    நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா, நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்
