The POE factor

Your life is interaction with world in three ways:-
You Observe the world with 5 senses,
You Perceive the world,
You Express yourself in the world.

The Observation, Perception and Expression decide how successful you will be in the world.

And the same faculties in others can help you understand them better. When someone doesn't notice your help or love, you can say, "oh poor in observation." When someone doesn't understand what you are telling them, "oh he/she needs to improve Perception." And when someone is not speaking well or enough to you, you can say, "oh, he/she needs to improve on expression."

You need detailed, minute and diversified Observation; clear and communal Perception and natural and authentic Expression. Regular practise of Sudarshan Kriya and Meditation enhances your POE factor. :)

When you leave a comment, I know that you have observed my post, perceived something out of it, and I am glad you expressed! :)

What gives value to what?

Right from my childhood, I have been aware of what gives value to which thing!

I was in 6th standard. I had gone to Sangli, from Pune, and easily solved a puzzle competion in a local festival contest. They called me on stage and asked, "which place do you like more, pune or sangli !?" I said, "since my father is here right now, I like Sangli !!" My this quick and innocent reply was probably not expected by the organizer, and he burst into laughter, along with all the audience, clapping and laughing!

So when I heard this in His Holiness Sri Sri Ravishankarji's Commentary on Narad Bhakti Sutra, I was happy to see that this has been in me since long! He says:- Do you get value because you are wearing a necklace, or a necklace gets a value because you are wearing it!? A shawl is important because of the person who wears it. A stick carried by Gandhiji is important because it was used by him.

Instead of wanting something for myself, I ask:- does it worth deserve me?

I like Bangalore, because I have so many friends here. So also, Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Germany, France, US! I like some languages because my friends speak them too. :) And I like to learn those. Now that I have friends all over the world, It seems that I will end up learning all the world's languages!! hahaha!

Before you sign up or pay...!

Be it a class, a trip, a business deal or a movie show. One thing I have learnt very well now, is that I need to know the terms and conditions of any contract, BeforE I sign up or pay! And I need to know it in full detail. Often those who want to sign a deal with you, have their own benefit in mind, and they unintentionally hide or intentionally don't disclose the details which you may not be comfortable with.
So, ASK for the details. GET To Know the total information Before You Sign up or Pay. Your ignorance is not counted as innocence in business world!

March in March...!

In a society, there are flows, because there are flows in the individuals of the society. And in an individual, there are flows, because the society is like this!
When the individuals stand up for the human values, the human values in the whole of society are raised up.

For corruption or terrorism to exist, it spreads its wings and roots to diverse parts of society. When these are cut down, there is no base for it to exist.

Here begins an event for a social reform through individual action:- March in March:-
The March Against Terrorism Against Corruption.

Delhi, 1March, 2-5 PM, Parliament Street, Delhi.

gave an exam...! Abschluss Prufung.

Ending exam of the German class. Es geht gut.

I was watching during the prep, am I "relaxed and focussed at the same time!?"

Sometimes I was, sometimes I wasn't. 

Its been some 3 years after which I am giving a formal exam. Quite a long time for any normal student! 
And I saw the old patterns coming up:- postponing the important and not so urgent till it became urgent, fantasising, day dreaming, escapism, shortcuts, regrets, building up of anxiety as the time of exam came closer, rise of body temperature, wishing to just go away somewhere else from the textbooks...!  
The difference was I was watching these and letting go... sticking to study for learning. and It went pretty good I say, this time. Its Just a Simple Skill.

Forever Bangalorean!

"Bangalore Mirror" did a fantastic job by inviting His Holiness Sri Sri Ravishankar, and arranging a Huge gathering of city folks to spend an evening with Him in Kantirava Stadium on 21st Feb! 

Wow, what a pleasant evening it was. Thousands of citizens from Bangalore, Flood Lights filling the stadium ground, and soothing melodious music. Lots of YES!+ Youth had gathered together and put up a kiosk on the occasion.


Without wasting time in formalities, Sri Sri immediately tuned up with Bangaloreans and spoke about various things we could do in Bangalore. First and foremost, clean and green bangalore. He sighted an example of a city in Maharashtra, where volunteers are taking brooms in hand, and cleaning up the city!!

I seem to be writing the blog like a homework assignment! Never mind, commitment to something is better than to nothing.

Actually what stops one from being free totally is Habits. 
If you look at it, every now and then, you attain freedom. Be it during Long Sudarshan Kriya, Guruji's Darshan or just a satsang. How long do you Retain freedom!?

Liberated ones retain it on all times. It becomes their nature. That reminds me to write about Geetha.

The moment the freedom is attained, the old impressions/ habits come up. Knock knock, can I come in!? They ask. And "out of habit", one allows them to enter! 
Only way to come out of Habits is through Samyama- taking a vow. Home work:- Read the knowledge sheet on this! 

"When you are not committed, you will become lazy and eat here and there!"
"If you don't put habits into samyama, there will be illness and sorrow!"

Re-arrangement of 5 elements

Aren't most of our desires nothing but just re-arrangement of 5 elements?

e.g. if you want a Car, it just means that you wish to get that tin/metal pot from factory/showroom to your home. for an alien, how it will look like? there is this box of tin, it gets moved from one place to another. and then the 5 feet few inches automaton(so called human being) spreads his uppar part of face ( lips ) and jumps (smiles and jumps)!

having food is another re-arrangement. and so on.

of course, when we re-arrange the 5 elements, there is something subtle energy that moves up within and  hence its good to keep re-arranging! 
However notice why that movement of energy happens... its because we have kept the condition in mind that IF i buy a car THEN i will be happy.. remove IF THEN, and be happy!

full meals...

i was in a restaurant and ordered north indian mini meals. I hardly manage to order particular dishes, as they are pretty costly for a single person having dinner. as usual mind went into many thoughts and this came out:-

short term relationships are like the separate dishes that available:- don't really fill up oneself fully, and are costly!
long term relationships are like full meals:- they have all the variety, and economical!

playing with water...

"Bath", "cleaning the body" are too boring rituals for me. So I postpone them as further in the day as possible! But can't do it for long, cause I have to get out of home sometime or other!

Other day I rephrased it, and changed the act--- "Bath is now defined as playing with water!!"
Now there is no delay, whenever I wish, I go for playing with water!

Also breathing exercises are playing with breath,
Yoga is playing with body,
eating is playing with food...

And life is a game of living!

Selection without rejection

When you go to Supermarket or shopping complex... What happens? You want to buy a shirt and then you buy the one that is "best" and in your budget. Just see, in the process have you disqualified a whole lot of others!? 

Then what happens, next time when you go, its the lot that you have already rejected, so there is nothing to select!
What might be a better idea, is to select, while not rejecting others, considering them as equally viable options.

And this applies to a thousand other selections we do in the life. Be it language, life partner, nationality or religion there is selection. When you don't reject others, they too have a special place in your life inspite of de-selection.

Just listening

I was sitting in A2B hotel the other day, just after taking the food that I had received from the self-service counter. While I was munching on my masala dosa, I was saying, ohh there is so much noise here. It was a place full of people. I am in general quite fed up by noises, traffic, honking, loudspeakers, and now, even here for dinner, I have to listen to so much noise. 

Then I recalled Devang's favourite timespass:- just listening.

Something changed. I paused my eating for a while. Looking at a couple on the right, I listened to them. Some South Indian Language which I couldn't understand. Then the group of friends on left. Some laugh, light talk. Then the sweet delivery person on right front distant counter shouting to someone far, about some order. The person ordering food behind me, and the cashier replying. People at distance. Traffic at even distant road.
All the sounds got sorted out! IT was suddenly SILENT inside! :)

I noticed that there is a soundscape around me ... Just like when one sees one sight object on the right, one is not seeing that on left, sounds don't overlap, you follow them one by one. 

Unfortunately, ears don't have earlids like eyelids, to close them at will. So we can't shut the sounds falling on the ears. And since we don't want to listen them, it becomes a noise. Now there can be a noisy sound, but not a noisy picture. This is where sight and listening differs.

Watch "August Rush".

You fill up my senses

Everyone has come here for some purpose. When they do that, something beautiful happens. What have I come here for?

movie like

I was watching "Marley and Me" and noticed how nicely crafted the dialogs were. Why do movies and plays have a nice, audible dialogs where as in daily life its plain conversation!?
Pondering more I think its because:
They don't just blabber, they talk particular things
Lots of expressions

And of course, in a movie a lot of editing is done! if you see 24 hours of a celeb on camera for 24 hours, then even if it is directed and all, you would get bored! the duration of film is much shorter than the duration in which it happens/ is imagined to happen!
also, so much closeup zoom in and zoom out of camera, all sorts of crazy angles, lights and what not!
lil diff in reel life and real life!..

Some people have it though, even in real life, they smile, talk expressively, dress well and smart and i like such people. i like them!
With sadhana seva satsang, life is like a bond 007 life, only, here we win hearts of people!

I liked the gentle lighting lamps in movie rock on, instead of full flood of light that a tube light gives, in normal homes. Then I noticed, that its actually quite an inadequate lighting, if the tube light is not put up! lots of things not similar in real life than in reel one!

Dance Dance Dance!

The song that made me dance, still makes me shake up wake up when I hear it:-

10,000 International guests

Amphi Theater

In front of His Holiness Sri Sri RaviShankarji !!

Some 15 of us danced and danced and I don't know how it happened.

Rewind the time, 1 month or so before, I had no coordination between legs, hands,
beats and whatever!

Padmasadhana rounds, help by friends(just won't forget you guys!), and oh wow, what
a great choreographer...

Practise practise practise... when I got up, when I brushed teeth, after bath, on the walk to Institute, before and after dinner, hall, bedroom, terrace, practise places, nothing but

First time this body was thrilled with freedom of movement...

I never looked back, and dance is part of life, one way or other!

#5. As a voter, I can vote in two different kinds of elections, assembly and parliamentary elections.

You have a choice!

It was one more of those days in my college life, when I was interested in nothing (except some girls may be...!).
However I had one habbit of being with good teachers. And I was hanging around a nice maths educational institute after a class. My teacher came out and we had a conversation...
He pointed me to one boy almost of my age, working on a construction site. He said, "right now, that boy is better off than me, because he is earning, and I am not. That boy is not dependent, unlike me. However, he said, That boy will be working there itself, for years to come, but you have a choice, you can progress further in life. "

Years later, I still remember those words, and keep reminding myself that I still have a choice, to keep progressing further in life, instead of getting in a job where I plough the field like a bull.
Its great that such beacons of light still exist in the world, showing the right way to thousands of youth.

Butt shows!

What's this new fashion about not wearing underpant AND wearing low waist jeans, showing off butts now and then! Ease of access or extra ventilation or something!? Is it that some girls are too unaware or I have extra observation skills! Well, I didn't have to do any extra efforts, it was obvious for all to see!

Nature of urge

Bondage is that which when not done, gives pain.
Have you noticed what happens when you get an urge/ desire?

There are three stages.
When the desire arises, it brings along excitation, promise of joy, a hope, anticipation and also some anxiety.
If you are lucky ( or unlucky! ask me later why!) enough, the desire gets fulfilled, and during its fulfillment there is a transient experience of joy, a thrill.
Lastly after fulfilling, one is tired.

If you don't necessarily run to fulfill a desire, be lazy in working for a desire, then you will see that desires rise and fall within you! They come and pass by.
Observing these three stages frees you from them.

Higher Taste!

Check out this shop for cake and sweets and bakery and ... few other things: Higher Taste!!
I had a great delight in gulping an absolutely delicious eggless pastry there today. I also packed up some bakery products and cakes... open till 10pm.
Location is, well, 38th cross, the same shopping complex which also hosts Cafe Coffee Day, in 4th block jayangar. near jayangar 4th block busstop.(of course, bangalore! :) )


From Narad Bhakti Sutras, a brilliant textbook on aphorisms of love and devotion...

Sometimes you tend to keep the divine away from a corner of your life... Then connection is incomplete. Share all the things, all aspects of your life with the divine. That is akhand-bhajan.Bhajan means sharing. Some people confuse it with singing for 24 hours. The point here is, share all, give all to the divine, and become empty!

just like that.

one and half months ago i lost my 3rd (in 4 years) mobile.
I learnt that a friend had recently lost her ornaments, confusing a bag with another.
recently another friend lost a bag.
long ago another friend had lost a laptop while getting down from auto.

three days ago, i lost my hostel room key while travelling on my bike... don't know how that only came out from the bunch of keys!
it was late night, so i stayed at neighbour, next day they gave me duplicate key.

our new hostel rooms have this self locking system for slinding doors of balcony. i am quite particular to keep the mesh door locked to avoid any mosquitoes or flies coming in. this locking system is recently put in, and as usual i banged the mesh door when i went to put some clothes in balcony. i put the clothes and ... phew! i had locked myself out in the balcony!! hahaha!
then the guy with duplicate key came, but my door was bolted from inside, then they opened other rooms, came through that balcony to mine, (its kind of shared except for a railing, so that was easy), derailed the mesh door, then i squeezed through the gap to go in, and opened the mesh door and main door. husshh..
I was thinking i had really gone absent minded...
then today morning when I shared this with other students, I got to know of 4 more students who had on occassions locked themselves out of room, though not in balcony! I felt good that I was not the alone person messing up things.

Inspiration or Fear Psychosis!?

If you are studying/working somewhere, are you doing so because you don't want to fail/ for fame/ money/ power or because you are simply inspired to do it?

Working to meet deadlines/ to avoid fine /to continue being on to the job etc are all out of fear psychosis.

In the society, there have to be laws like if you do so and so crime, you will be fined or sent to jail for so much duration. The fear of this punishment brings down the crime rate.
However, people seem to be using similar tactic in daily life.
If you don't come on time, you will be fined. If you don't work well, you won't get so and so perks.

As an employer, organizer, governer, check if you are working by inducing fear in others or just by inspiring them to do things. See if you can make your associates fearless lions and lionesses.

In long run, fear based strategy won't work. Inspiration is everlasting.

Right attitude for any deficiencies

When you see some flaw within yourself, your life, what do you do? Do you hide/supress/ignore/deny it? Or do you blame yourself for it?

Neither thing helps. Denial will keep it going as it is, and blaming will keep you away from overcoming it. Just acknowledge that I have this deficiency or fault in my ideas/ way of living, and work to improve it without self-pity, self-blame or self-bashing.

You were not asked before being sent in this world ! Why to attach oneself with one's positive or negative qualities!
