A fool is a fool is a fool…..

I have read a book named-

A rose is a rose is a rose……

But yesterday I read something so wonderful that it made me to write this post-

A fool is a fool is a fool…….

Yesterday I read an article in a magazine.The magazine was nice.But the article was written by quite an insightful person.I laugh at daring of such people….people who compare Gautam Buddha with a husband trying to succeed in his business and Yashodhara with this man’s wife!Why?I would like to ask the author-Have you even felt a single line of Buddha?Have you given your hand in his hand?Do you even know what Buddha means?Do you know on which path Buddha walked?What this path dealt with?What was Buddha’s totality?Lives are insufficient to understand Buddha and people writing in a college magazine have started criticizing him.I cannot tolerate……

Buddha is one of the persons I love most.Buddha  was the one who has walked and encountered highest peaks of totality.Buddha is the one who has traveled the most difficult path.But people have nothing to with this.No one is ready to sit at a place and meditate on Buddha.But they think that they are mature enough to comment.Mature enough to criticize Buddha in a college magazine which 3000 students will read.The whole humanity is playing this game with Masters.They feel quite uplifted by thinking that they have found a fault in Buddha.A fault in a man to which whole humanity considers perfect.But this only shows that how fool you are.Buddha has got the position which no one can reach.But now I understand the meaning of phrase “Laughing Buddha”.Buddha must be laughing after reading the article.He is such a lovely person.He will not even be angry or sad after reading that bogus article,he will just laugh.And yes,it is worth laughing only.That is what i I am doing while typing this post.

Siddhartha leaving his home was a divine plan.Not a future plan of some office going engineer.The impact of what Buddha saw was so subtle,that even if Buddha would have stayed at home,it would not have helped Yashodhara in any way.This is not a general story of a man running behind his carrier.This is story of eternal quest.I would advice author that first understand what eternal quest means……how it feels when you have it within….what walking on a Razor’s edge means…..then if you are in a position of criticizing Buddha,do it………….

Razor's edge….

This is the greatest truth…the  truth which I have realized……..the truth being reflected from everything……from a rose …..a flying bird…..flowing river…..shining sun…..animal being slaughtered…..students being failed…..those who are saved by a single mark……from the flute of Hariprasad…….Sarod of Amjad ali Khan…..Each water drop reflects this truth…..each bird sings this song……..We take a long to get the facts….we ignore them even if we get them….as per our convience….but this cannot go for a long…..a time comes……legs start bleeding….then we realize….its a Razor’s edge…..we just walk and when realize,leave it…..so this is the beauty of game…..we know that it will cut…it will hurt….we run away…..but some are madmen….they walk….ignoring everything….for them,this edge is a fun….and yes,it is….at this position,i can say,that life is a Razor’s edge…..i walked it….and yes,i enjoyed it…….

Take me out of the boat……..

The real master is one,who does not solve all questions,

but takes care that there is no question remaining.

The same analogy works for a disciple also.

A disciple is not the one who makes the progress,but the one who simply leaves the very idea of progress.

This idea of saint tulsidaas,is really having a great vision-

Hoo patit to uddhar na kariye,

par utar jahaj……….

(If I am one with lower grade,don’t resurrect me,just take me out of the boat……)

It needs a lot of vision,devotion and experience to come to this conclusion.All this game of higher and lower beings,this game of progress,knowledge,improvement is bogus.It does not mean that it is to be bypassed.Because to come to the very conclusion that it is bogus,you should have a great deal of experience in it.Then everything clears up.Tulsidas could see that the race is just bogus,aimless when he was in the boat.And then he asks to be taken out of the boat.This is something interesting.And ya,this is the only way.To realize that race is a wastage,just a game,you should have tested it very deeply.It also clears one thing,that such people like Tulsidas are too perfect.They use each and every sentence,each and every word perfectly.A single line by him has such a profound meaning in it…….

All our life is just a pretension……

Each and every human being lives in a myth that what he does is only the meaningful thing.Each and every human being,at the bottom of his heart feels that he is living his life honestly,that his search of truth in life is authentic.He honestly goes to the temple.Many a times he donates a lot.Whenever he crosses any temple,he will pay offerings.And this goes on everywhere.Let it be India or America.This is a human tendency.Each human being sets or decides something as holy.He does it honestly.At this time,i remember Rabindranath Tagore.He in one his poems says that this is all pretension.Your holiness,your offerings….just a show….just a game.

At first time,it seems controversial,but it is the truth.Whole life of man is nothing but a pretension.A world created around,to keep yourself distinguished.The man’s search of truth,his prayers,offerings….just a game.When actual truth comes in front,we just pull back,cling to self created illusion.Our quest of truth,is bogus………

What can I do about this world?

I gave up sewn clothes and wore a robe,

but i noticed one day,the cloth is well woven……

So,i bought some burlap,but still,

I throw it elegantly over my left shoulder………

I just pressed my sexuality but then i noticed,

that i am too much angry……..

These are lines by Kabir…….

What can i do about this world?

it is just like dried skin of dead animal……..

try it to make straight at one part………it will bend from somewhere else……….

this is our sad story…….for the whole of our life,we just try to fight against the mind,but it emerges from somewhere else.We by too much of effort renounce world…..but then we realise that it has followed us through an increased ego….We by too much of efforts repress our sexuality.But again some day we notice that we are more angry now……

So,this is mind…..this is maya ……this is world……

The true way is not of fighting…..it is the way of witnessing…..Just see how it works…in this seeing only,it is dropped…

sada sada mai sharan tihari……….

I was just watching a video……

which was being sung in an unsung voice…….

the human voice which is most near to anahat voice…….

voice of god……

voice of, Pandit Bhimsen Joshi…….

Raghuvar tumko meri yaad…….

Sada sada mai sharan tihari…….

Tum ho Garibnawaj…….

comparable were the words…….

words born in silence……

the silence felt by Tulsidaas……

Singing is a way…..broad door way…..opening in eternity…

An artist who knows music is the one who knows this fact…….that music or any art is not the place to showcase you…..neither to bring your ego…..

The good artist is not one who showcases his talent,but one who tries to become hollow……to allow the divine to flow within…………

And I can dare to say that Bhimsen Joshi is a 10 pointer…….just hollow…..

when he sings,he does not sing……it is the whole existence which sings…..

the complete life of universe flows through him………

There were a few indian classical singers having same potential he has…..but they stand nowhere in front of bhimsen……he has got the key…..others tried to show their talent…..where as Bhimsen was just diving…with no intention……..no passion…..and due to this very attitude,he reached the end…..the ultimate height which can be attained through music………….

I really love this man……it is too difficult when you have international fame…….lots of people always praising you……but you do not flow with them……you escape all ego traps……..without being caught……..Bhimsen has done this……..hence,he reached……

mysticism and politics…….

As i can guess,these are the two terms having greatest distance possible.But this world is quite strange……..

it can happen that to keep burning the mystic within you,politics is inevitable……same is the situation here…….

and i can draw the conclusion that mysticism can be bundled with politics….a combo pack……but its a razor’s edge…….much patience is needed….also needed a great deal of awareness……

Our college holds elections for various posts……at first my syance was to remain away from it……just the dirty politics…..But it was the question of existence……to be or not to be……so without giving a second thought,i jumped in…….and ya,i learned one thing,that politics can be a great teacher……..

Politics can teach us that politician is hidden in each of your friends……..close ones……always praising you…..

Politics can teach you that,you can fight against a strong guy without having a single point worth talking………..

Politics gives you a right to alter your statements to very contradictory ones many times a day……..

politics can teach you how a crook can get in hand few fools and pooison them against you…….

can poison the very best friends you had…….

witnessing is the key of all meditations……..politics helps you or rather learns you to witness………

calmly,quietly,patiently………….

situation is against you…..just watch it……..then you think that it will be in your hands……because you count on someone…….then this someone trips….just like a flip-flop……..then you again watch yourself being defeated……then you get the aces…….everything again in your hands……but then too,watch……

it confirms one thing…….

in this world,everything teaches……politics also…..

just open up the eyes………

The fake Babas…..

This week was for Babas…..the fake Sadhus………

In India or anywhere in the world where too many parameters which are out of control of a particular human being play role,govern his life,Babas are born.These Babas or fake sages are nothing but outcome of the fact that ordinary man at such  places has not even minimal control over his life.If he will get earning for the day or not depends on the contractor.If he will get Below Poverty Line benefits,which by law is his right  depend on clerks in office.Will his slum be kept as it is or will be thrown away depend on bilder lobby and politicians.So,very few things remain in his hands.As these Babas promote themselves as only messenger between human and divine,certainly this man who is looser in his life is going to be get attracted towards fake holy men.

On the other hand,these Babas have political support as these Babas hold a much of crowd and hence a lot of voes in their hands.At the same time,these fake hermits are the medium through which any illegal  activity can be carried out silently.Rich people support these Babas because they want to wash out all their misdeeds they did to earn the money by serving this Babas and also,these people are happy that many illegal things which they could never do in their can be easily done it the ‘holy’ places of Babas.

These Babas are nothing but an outlet for all the ugly things inside us those we go on hiding from  society to fulfill our vested interests.

Do we need a religion?

This is the question which was eating my mind for a long duration of time,which falls into months.A man should be from any kind of background or from any profession,he needs something on which he can hang up his load,or something which can be blamed for things that are not under his control.I would like to tell you that,man has made religions the worst system which ever existed on this earth.Religion has just become a chocolate;a consolation.All the Pujari,priests are holding this chocolate in their hands.It is a simple psychology that for a normal man there is going to be something which is beyond his control.Priest cunningly use this fact a pretend that they are the medium,between man and divine.The poor man is already so much frustrated with life that he bows in front of priest than experiment with the poison.So,the system continues.

But the poor priest is not the only person to be blamed.The man also deep within knows that he cannot follow authentic religious path,as it is too dangerous.Your ego,lust,greed,passion,everything needs to be dropped.At the same time the common man is afraid of being honest to himself,as blessed is the ignorant,or rather blessed is the one who pretends to be ignorant!The man knows all the dishonesty,ego,greed within him.Priest gives him an easier way-just sing song praising the lord and everything is washed away.Man also believes this,even if he does not believe,he follows it because it gives him a false satisfaction of being freed from all the misdeeds.

Thinking honestly,we have made religion a mask to hide our lust,ego,passion behind it.Now,time has come to tear it away and encounter oneself!
