September 2016 -3

BEING EMPATHETIC AND SYMPATHETIC TO OTHERS IS A SIGN OF INNER GROWTH AND MATURITY.... IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO PRACTICE THIS, INCASE YOU ARE SELF CENTRED.....

IT IS DIFFICULT FOR EGOISTIC PEOPLE TO LET GO AND SURRENDER..... THERE ARE SOME WHOM I KNOW, WHO ARE IN THE EVENING OF LIFE..... EVEN AT THEIR RIPE AGE, THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO DROP THEIR EGO AND ARE VIRTUALLY STRUGGLING WITH THAT LUGGAGE... OUR PRAYERS TO LORD TO BE MERCIFUL TO THEM, SO THAT THEIR JOURNEY IN TO THE FUTURE IS LESS CUMBERSOME AND PAINFUL....

THE WORLD OF TANTRA IS NOT FOR THE WEAK MINDED..... IT IS NOT FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE SELF CENTRED..... TANTRA IS NOT FOR THOSE WHO ARE INTERESTED IN ACQUIRING KNOWLEDGE..... TANTRA IS NOT FOR THOSE WHO ANALYSE....TANTRA IS NOT FOR LOGICIANS..... TANTRA IS NOT FOR PEOPLE WHO MANIPULATE AND CALCULATE....
TANTRA IS FOR THOSE WHO YEARN TO GO BEYOND KNOWLEDGE.... TANTRA IS FOR THOSE WHO ARE PREPARED TO SACRIFICE THEIR SELFISH CENTRE... TANTRA IS FOR THOSE WHO WONDER....TANTRA IS FOR THOSE WHO ARE NON JUDGMENTAL BY NATURE AND UNCONDITIONAL IN LOVE.... TANTRA IS FOR THOSE WHO WHOLE HEARTEDLY ACCEPT THE WILL AND CALL OF GOD.... TANTRA IS FOR THOSE WHO UNCONDITIONALLY SURRENDER..... TANTRA IS FOR THE COURAGEOUS..... TANTRA IS FOR THOSE WHO ARE PREPARED TO SACRIFICE THEIR PERSONAL INTEREST AND WORK FOR A LARGER CAUSE, CATERING TO THE NEEDS OF HUMANITY.....

IF YOU MANIPULATE TODAY , SOME DAY , YOU WILL BE MANIPULATED....

MAN....WOMAN....
MANLY....WOMANLY....
HUMANLY???????

HE WAS BEING AWARDED FOR HIS EXCELLENCE IN THE FIELD OF EDUCATION.....
I WAS THERE AT THE HALL ON THAT DAY ....ON SEEING ME HE CAME RUNNING TO ME....
HE SAID.....'GURUJI, PLEASE COME UP ON THE STAGE....I WOULD LIKE YOU TO BE INTRODUCED TO THE AUDIENCE'....
ME...'NO.... I WON'T COME ON TO THE STAGE..... I JUST READ IN THE NEWSPAPER THAT YOU ARE BEING AWARDED....SO I JUST CAME TO SEE YOU RECEIVING THE AWARD... I DON'T WANT TO BE ON THE STAGE....IF YOU COMPEL ME, I MAY TELL THE TRUTH TO THE ENTIRE WORLD ABOUT YOUR EXCELLENCE.... JUST THINK.... IT IS HIGHLY RISKY'.....
HE WENT BACK ON TO THE STAGE.....
I JUST SAW HIM RECEIVING THE AWARD AND LEFT.....
ONE MORE WICKET DOWN....ROFL.....

JOURNEY IN TO THE FUTURE MEANS..... JOURNEY IN TO THE UNKNOWN..... DEATH IS AN END TO THIS BODY IN THE LONG JOURNEY OF THE SOUL.... WHEN YOU DROP EGO, YOU WILL GO WITHOUT REGRETS.... IF YOU HAVE LIVED LIFE WITHOUT EGO, IT IS A LIFE WITHOUT REGRETS..... LIFE WITH EGO WILL CERTAINLY BE A LIFE WITH REGRETS.... WHEN YOU LIVE LIFE WITH REGRETS , THE SOUL WHILE LEAVING FEELS THE BURDEN, PAIN OF THE LUGGAGE CALLED EGO WITH WHICH IT WAS LIVING ALL LONG...

WE ALWAYS KNOW TO HOLD ON TO THINGS, BUT WE DON'T KNOW TO DROP IT.... INFACT WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IS MEANT BY DROPPING....... UNLESS YOU ARE CONSCIOUSLY AWARE, DROPPING IS IMPOSSIBLE..... EVEN TO UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF DROPPING, AWARENESS IS REQUIRED....THE SIMPLEST EXERCISE TO DEVELOP AWARENESS IS TO DO THINGS AS THOUGH YOU DON'T HAVE A CHOICE....
YOU HAVE TO STUDY AND GET A DEGREE NOT BECAUSE THERE ARE PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITIES TO STUDY AND GAIN KNOWLEDGE, BUT YOU HAVE TO STUDY SINCE YOU DON'T HAVE A CHOICE.....
YOU HAVE TO EARN MONEY AND TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEEDS NOT BECAUSE THERE IS A CHOICE OF JOBS BUT YOU HAVE TO GO FOR A JOB , EARN MONEY AND THAT DON'T HAVE A CHOICE.....
WHEN YOU DO SOME THING AS A CHOICE, EXPECTATION BUILDS ....WHEN YOU ARE CHOICE LESS, THERE IS NO EXPECTATION.... IN TURN AWARENESS DEVELOPS....

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO NECESSITY TO PROVE YOURSELF TO PEOPLE WHO LACK FAITH IN YOU..... DON'T CONTRIBUTE TO THE BLAME GAME IN WHICH THEY MAY INDULGE....

JUST GO BY WHAT YOUR HEART SAYS TO AVOID THE DOUBTS OF THE MIND.....ONCE DOUBTS ENTER YOUR MIND , YOU WILL LOSE PEACE...

LOVE AND POSSESSIVENESS CANNOT COEXIST....

IF YOU ARE VERY RIGID, OTHERS WILL MOVE AWAY FROM YOU..... UNLESS YOU ARE SYMPATHETIC, PEOPLE MAY NOT APPROACH YOU.....

YOU MUST MOVE TOWARDS YOUR CENTRE, THE CORE.... THE SOUL IS YOUR CENTRE... THE HEART IS YOUR CENTRE.... THE SOUL IS YOUR BEING...... YOU FEEL DISSATISFIED WITH LIFE BECAUSE YOU ALWAYS ON THE PERIPHERY...

DON'T KEEP LOOKING AT OTHERS FAULTS..... DROP INSPECTION.... LOOK AT YOUR CORE...ADOPT INTROSPECTION.....

PEOPLE IN THE FIELD OF ARTS, MUSIC AND DANCE ARE CONSIDERED TO BE VERY CREATIVE.... CREATIVITY EXISTS WHERE AMBITION DOESN'T EXIST.... AN AMBITIOUS PERSON CANNOT BE CREATIVE.... AN AMBITIOUS PERSON IS AGGRESSIVE AND THIS WILL ACT AGAINST CREATIVITY.... A CREATIVE PERSON CANNOT AFFORD TO BE AGGRESSIVE....SUPPOSE AMBITION ENTERS THE MIND OF A DANCER, THEN IT WILL BE THE DEATH KNELL OF CREATIVITY....

TODAY SHYAM DORAISWAMY WAS SUGGESTING THAT SRI KHADGAMALA STOTRAM CAN BE RECITED AFTER SRI LALITHA PARAYANA DURING NAVARATRI, TO INCREASE THE BENEFIT OF THE SRI CHAKRA POOJA.... IN CASE IT IS FEASIBLE, THIS MAY BE GIVEN THOUGHT OF BY THE PARTIES CONCERNED.... WE SALUTE SHYAM DORAISWAMY FOR GUIDING US IN THIS REGARD....

HUMBLENESS IN ATTITUDE MAKES YOU APPROACHABLE.... EVEN WHEN YOU NEGATE OR DENY DO IT POLITELY.....

IT'S NOT NECESSARY THAT WE SHOULD AGREE WITH EVERY ONE..... SOME TIMES VIEWS MAY DIFFER AMONG EVEN CLOSEST PEOPLE.... THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU CAN USE HARSH OR FOUL LANGUAGE.... USAGE OF SUCH LANGUAGE WILL CERTAINLY THROW YOU IN BAD LIGHT BEFORE OTHERS... SO BE POLITE IN CONVEYING YOUR OPINION OR THOUGHTS, SO THAT THE OTHER PERSON WILL UNDERSTAND IT THE WAY YOU FEEL...

IMPOLITENESS AND VULGARITY IN CONVEYING AN OPINION WILL SPOIL ANY RELATIONSHIP....

PLEASE ALWAYS REMEMBER THERE IS THE OTHER SIDE TO A COIN.... THE OTHER SIDE VIEW MAY EQUALLY BE SERENE LIKE YOURS......SO DON'T TALK WITHOUT KNOWING THE FACTS OF THE CASE THOROUGHLY....

PEOPLE MAY RUN AWAY FROM YOU BECAUSE OF YOUR RIGIDITY AND IMPOLITENESS.... OF COURSE YOU MAY NOT BE THAT DEPENDENT ON OTHERS TO LEAD LIFE, BUT THAT IS NOT A LIFE AT ALL....

LIFE IS NEVER INDEPENDENT.... IT IS INTERDEPENDENT.... INTERDEPENDENCY IS NOT SLAVERY.... INTERDEPENDENCY ARISES OUT OF A SENSE OF DEEP COMMITMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES CONCERNED..... IT GIVES RISE TO COMPASSION....

WHEN YOU ARE EMOTIONAL AND ACCUSE THE OTHER PERSON, PLEASE REMEMBER EMOTIONS ARE NOT ONE SIDED.... EVEN THE OTHER PERSON HAS HIS SIDE TO IT.... BALANCING ONE'S EMOTION PAVES WAY FOR A SUCCESSFUL RELATIONSHIP.....

EMOTIONAL MATURITY ENSURES SUCCESS IN RELATIONSHIP..... LOP SIDED EMOTIONS SPOIL GOOD RELATIONSHIPS..... EVEN IF YOU ARE THE AFFECTED PARTY, THROWING TANTRUMS WILL NOT SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS...INTROSPECTING THE SITUATION IS THE KEY TO SAVE A RELATIONSHIP.....

WHEN SOME ONE IS CLOSE IN RELATIONSHIP WITH US, WE TAKE THEM FOR GRANTED... WE EXPECT THEM TO RESPOND TO OUR FEELINGS THE WAY WE THINK.... WHEN THEY DON'T IT LEADS TO DISAPPOINTMENT AND EMOTIONS ARE ADVERSELY EXHIBITED AGAINST THEM... IT IS MORE THE POSSESSIVENESS THAN LOVE... PURE LOVE NEVER EXPECTS AND RESPECTS THEM TOTALLY, FOR WHAT THEY ARE...


September 2016 -2


Golden words of HH Sri VV Sridhar Guruji

EVERY GURU HAS HIS OWN WAY TO BRING A PERSON IN TO HIS FOLD....

THERE WAS A MASTER BY NAME MANAKKAL NAMBI.... THERE WAS AN INTELLECTUAL BOY WHO BECAME A KING... THE MASTER KNEW VERY WELL THAT THIS BOY WHO IS THE KING IS DESTINED TO BE A GREAT SPIRITUAL MASTER....

THE GUARDS IN THE PALACE REFUSED TO ALLOW THE MASTER INSIDE THE PALACE.... THE MASTER BEFRIENDED THE COOKS IN THE KITCHEN AND GOT TO KNOW THAT A PARTICULAR GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLE CALLED 'THOODHUVALAI' IS LIKED A LOT BY THE KING....

SO THE MASTER EVERYDAY STARTED SUPPLYING THOSE GREENS AND THE COOKS USED TO COOK AND OFFER IT TO THE KING.... THE KING JOYOUSLY WAS EATING THE COOKED GREENS ALONG WITH THE FOOD....

THE MASTER SUDDENLY STOPPED THE SUPPLY.... THE KING ASKED THE COOKS FOR GREENS.... THE COOKS SAID A VERY OLD MAN WAS SUPPLYING THE GREENS BUT HE HAS NOT TURNED UP FOR THE PAST 4 DAYS... THE KING SAID THAT INCASE THE OLD MAN TURNS UP AGAIN, HE WOULD LIKE TO MEET HIM...

AFTER A WEEK OR SO, MANAKKAL NAMBI WENT BACK WITH THE GREENS AND THE KING MET THE MASTER....

THE MASTER MANAKKAL NAMBI ESTABLISHED CONTACT WITH THE KING 'YAMUNAI THURAIVAN', WHO LATER WAS CALLED AS 'YAMUNACHARYA' OR 'ALAVANDAR'.... ALAVANDAAR WAS ONE OF THE MANASEEKA GURU OF SAINT RAMANUJA.... SAINT RAMANUJA COULD NOT REACH IN TIME TO SEE HIS GURU ALAVANDAR.... BY THE TIME RAMANUJA REACHED SRIRANGAM, ALAVANDAR LEFT FOR HEAVENLY ABODE.... BUT WHEN RAMANUJA CAME AND SAW THE CORPSE OF ALAVANDAR, IT IS SAID THAT MASTER ALAVANDAR'S DEAD BODY DIRECTED THREE THINGS TO BE DONE BY RAMANUJA BY OPENING THE CLOSED THREE FINGERS OF HIS RIGHT FIST....


MASTER'S WAYS ARE UNIQUE.....

 A BOY WAS ASKING ME ABOUT DROPPING MIND.... I SUGGESTED HIM TO START DOING PRANAYAMA BUT TO TAKE GUIDANCE FROM A GOOD PRACTITIONER.... HE TOLD ME THAT HE USED TO GO TO A MUTT AND HAD GOOD CONTACTS WITH THE MONKS....
  
HE APPROACHED THE MONKS FOR GUIDANCE ON PATANJALI YOGA SUTRA FOR PRACTICALLY DOING IT... ONE OF THE MONKS WHO WAS IN THE MUTT TOLD HIM, TO READ YOGA SUTRA, UNDERSTAND THE MEANING BUT NOT PRACTICE IT SINCE IT IS TEDIOUS.... HE ALSO SAID THAT TO HIS KNOWLEDGE NONE IN THE MUTT HAVE ANY PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE....
  
A PERSON WHO HAS NO KNOWLEDGE CALLS YOGA SUTRA AS TEDIOUS.... VERY FUNNY.... THESE PEOPLE ARE MONKS.... LORD IS MAKING ME TO WONDER AT THIS....

WHEN YOU DON'T POSSESS THE SKILL TO PERFORM, YOU BLAME THE ART....

VEDAS DISPEL IGNORANCE, STILL MAKE YOU WONDER AT LIFE.... THERE ARE MANY WHO CAN SING VEDIC HYMNS, BUT THEY DO NOT KNOW THE MEANING OF IT..... EVEN SOME WHO ARE GOOD AT INTERPRETATION OF THE VEDAS, SELDOM FOLLOW IT....

OUR COUNTRY IS WHERE THE VEDAS ORIGINATED, HARDLY YOU CAN FIND PEOPLE PRACTICING IT.... MOST OF THE SO CALLED BRAHMINS RECITE IT BEAUTIFULLY, BUT HARDLY ARE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND OR IMPLEMENT.... EVEN IF IMPLEMENTED IT IS MORE SELECTIVE AND CONVENIENCE IS THE GUIDING WORD....

THIS SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS SHOULD BE PAINING FOR PEOPLE LIKE US...


SATYAM GYANAM ANANTAM BRAHMA.....

- TAITREYA UPANISHAD....

 THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF WAYS TO LOOK AT IT.....

 HERE IS ONE OF THE WAYS.....
  
THE TRUTH, THE WISDOM, AND THE ENTIRE EXISTENCE IS THE BRAHMAN, GOD..... THE TRUTH AND WISDOM ARE INSEPARABLE FROM EXISTENCE.... THE EXPERIENCE OF TRUTH LEADS TO WISDOM THROUGH THE EXISTENCE... EVERYTHING FORMS A PART OF EXISTENCE...SO IF ONLY WE ARE ABLE TO LOOK AT THINGS DISPASSIONATELY, THE TRUTH AND THE WISDOM FOLLOWS....

YOGA MEANS TO UNITE.....

A TRUE SANYASI IS A TRUE YOGI...(THOUGH EVERY TRUE YOGI NEED NOT BE A SANYASI.).... HE IS SAKSHAAT 'AADI NARAYANA'..... SUCH A TRUE SANYASI ONLY UNITES AND NEVER DIVIDES THE SOCIETY.... HE NEVER DIFFERENTIATES...TO HIM RACE, CASTE, CREED, SEX, COLOUR HAS NO MEANING.... TO HIM THE WHO EXISTENCE IS ONE... HE ALWAYS FIGHTS FOR THIS 'ONENESS'....
  
HAVE THE POWER OF DISCRIMINATION, BUT IN PRACTICE DON'T DISCRIMINATE.... KNOW GOOD AND BAD, BUT DON'T REJECT THE BAD PERSON.... KNOW RIGHT AND WRONG, BUT DON'T HARASS THE ONE WHO IS WRONG.... KNOW PERFECTION AND IMPERFECTION, BUT DON'T LOOK DOWN ON THE IMPERFECT....

IF YOU PRACTICE THIS, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE JOYOUS AND LAUGH LIKE A WISE MAN....
   
SOME ONLY KEEP ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT VARIOUS TOPICS OR DOUBTS ON SUCH TOPICS.... IT'S JUST SOME SORT OF RECREATION FOR THEM TO QUESTION IN THE NAME OF 'KNOWING'.... SO DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR ENERGY ON SUCH PEOPLE.... INITIALLY YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SPOT SUCH PEOPLE.... AFTER A FEW OCCASIONS, YOU WILL GET TO KNOW THEM.... AT THAT STAGE, JUST SMILE AND SAY YOU DO NOT KNOW....

TO BEGIN WITH INVEST YOUR TIME IN SOME THING USEFUL TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.....

THEN YOU CAN INVEST YOUR TIME IN SOMETHING USEFUL TO OTHERS....


DOING SOMETHING OUT OF PURE LOVE FOR IT IS BETTER THAN DOING SOMETHING FOR THE SAKE OF AWARDS AND REWARDS....

DUTY WITHOUT AN ELEMENT OF LOVE IS JUST DISGRACE...

HE WANTS TO GET MARRIED HIS DAUGHTER BECAUSE IT SEEMS IT HIS DUTY..... I HEAR THE SOUND OF THE RIG WHICH IS USED TO DRILL THE GROUND TO GET OIL OR WATER...
  
PEOPLE WHO TALK TOO MUCH ON DUTY ARE MOSTLY AT TALKING LEVEL... JUST A SHOW OFF..... A MAN OF DUTY JUST DOES WHAT IS TO BE DONE WITH LOVE AND WITHOUT ANY PUBLICITY....HE SELDOM TALKS ON DUTY...

HE WAS NEVER SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE... HE ALWAYS FOUND FAULT WITH OTHERS.... HE LACKS MANNERS AND DECENCY WHILE SPEAKING.... HIS WIFE IS KNOWLEDGABLE AND SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE... IN FACT SHE RUNS THE SHOW AT HOME.... HE IS UNABLE TO TOLERATE HER RISE... THE OTHER DAY, HE IS MAKING TALL TALKS TO HER THAT HE WILL SUCCEED IN LIFE AND PROVE TO HER.... 

HE NEED NOT PROVE TO HER OR ANYBODY... HIS INFERIORITY COMPLEX WITH EGO IS HURTING HIM.... HE NEEDS TO INTROSPECT TO BE A BETTER PERSON....

INFERIORITY COMPLEX WITH EGO IS CANCEROUS....

INSTEAD OF QUESTIONING THE CAPACITY OF A PERSON POINTING OUT A MISTAKE, ONE SHOULD DEVELOP THE COURAGE TO CORRECT, WHAT IS BEING POINTED OUT, IF NEED BE....

LIFE IS NOT A PHILOSOPHY...

LIFE IS A REALITY....

THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING LAZY AND BEING RELAXED....
  
SATYAKAMA JABALA 

SOMETHING FROM THE VEDIC DAYS, WHERE THE MOTHER'S NAME WAS APPENDED TO THE CHILD'S NAME FOR IDENTIFICATION....

 SATYAKAMA WAS BORN TO JABALA , HIS MOTHER.... WHEN HE CAME OF AGE, HE ASKED HIS MOTHER AS TO WHO WAS HIS FATHER... SINCE JABALA DID NOT KNOW WHO HIS FATHER WAS TOLD HIM THAT SHE DOEN'T KNOW WHO HIS FATHER WAS....

 THERE LIVED A SAGE BY NAME HARIDRUMATA GAUTAMA... SATYAKAMA APPROACHED HIM TO JOIN HIS SCHOOL AS A DISCIPLE... WHEN SATYAKAMA ASKED HIM HIS FATHER'S NAME, HE SAID HIS MOTHER JABALA IS NOT AWARE AS TO WHO IS HIS FATHER....

 SAGE GAUTAMA WAS VERY HAPPY TO SEE THE BOY SPEAKING TRUTH.... HE SAID THAT SATYAKAMA WAS FIT TO BE HIS DISCIPLE AND SHALL BE CALLED HENCEFORTH AS SATYAKAMA JABALA...
 *******************
IF YOU KEEP LISTENING TO EVERY ONE, YOU WILL BECOME A BUNDLE OF CONFUSIONS AND CONTRADICTIONS.....
  
HEAR ALL.... LISTEN TO JUST ONE.... THE TRUE ONE....

ANALYSIS

Chandrasekaran Vaidyanathan :

Namaskarams Guriji - I think the idea of chastity or fidelity, as we understand today, is likely to be very different from those days.. we have had too much Christian influence, especially post colonisation.. perhaps everyone was a child of God... Even our interpretation of sruti and smritis, in my view, have undergone much change.. in my view they have all been sanitised to fit current mindsets or sensibilities.. Guruji - please share your perspective on this..
  
EXACTLY VC.... YOUR ANALYSIS IS INDEED VERY CLOSE TO REALITY..... TAKE THE CASE OF MAHABHARATA..... VICHITRAVIRYA DIED CHILDLESS.... AS THE NAME ITSELF SUGGESTS THOUGH HE WAS POTENT (VIRYA), HE WAS NOT ABLE TO IMPREGNATE HIS WIVES AMBIKA AND AMBALIKA(WHICH IS PECULIAR...HENCE VICHITRA).... SO THE MOTHER SATYAVATHI CALLS HER OTHER SON VEDA VYASA TO IMPREGNATE AMBIKA AND AMBALIKA.... DHRITARASHTRA AND PANDU WERE BORN..... THOUGH THEY WERE BORN TO VEDA VYASA, THEY WERE NEVER CALLED AS VYASA'S SONS...... SIMILAR IS THE CASE OF KUNTI, WHEN SHE BEGOT SONS THROUGH DEVAS, THEY WERE CALLED PANDU'S SON..... THIS PROCESS IS CALLED 'NIYOGA'..... NEVER THERE WAS ANY PRACTICE OF LOOKING DOWN ON SUCH WOMEN OR THE CHILD BORN....TODAY AS YOU RIGHTLY SAID IT IS CUSTOM MADE.... JUST TO FIT THE MINDSET OF THE SOCIETY WHICH HAS BEEN CONDITIONED TO BELIEVE IN STANDARD DEVELOPED MODULES OF SANCTITY AND PURITY.... I DON'T AGREE WITH THE PRESENT STANDARDS NOR WITH THE SO CALLED SAINTS WHO PROPAGATE SUCH THINGS IN THEIR OWN VESTED INTERESTS....

A MASTER IS NEVER BOTHERED WHETHER YOU ARE LITERATE OR ILLITERATE.... AFTER ALL IT'S YOUR OWN PERCEPTION, WHETHER YOU CALL YOURSELF LITERATE OR ILLITERATE.... IN FACT ONLY OTHERS CAN SAY WHETHER YOU ARE LITERATE OR ILLITERATE, DEPENDING ON WHETHER THEY HAVE KNOWLEDGE IN ANALYSING THE SUBJECT DISPASSIONATELY..... A MAN OF WISDOM IS ACTUALLY NEVER BOTHERED WHETHER YOU INTRODUCE YOURSELF AS LITERATE OR ILLITERATE, FOR HE DOESN'T GO BE SELF DECLARATIONS....

EVERY CHILD IS A GIFT OF GOD....THERE IS NOTHING LIKE LEGITIMATE OR ILLEGITIMATE IN THIS.... OUR SOCIETY NEEDS TO EMBRACE EVERY KID.... EVERY KID NEEDS SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT.... IN FACT IT IS VERY INDECENT TO QUESTION THE ORIGIN.... IN THE NAME OF MORALITY AND FIDELITY, THERE IS A LOT OF MORAL POLICING THESE DAYS.... FURTHER THE SOCIETY TOO HAS BEEN CONDITIONED TO ACCEPT IT AND BEHAVE ACCORDINGLY.... ALL SAID AND DONE SUCH A CHILD OR SUCH A WOMAN CANNOT BE LOOKED DOWN BY SOCIETY... INFACT THE SOCIETY SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THEM MORE THAN OTHERS, BY PROVIDING THEM ALL ASSISTANCE INCLUDING EMOTIONAL SUPPORT....

MAATHA POORVA ROOPAM....
TAITREYA UPANISHAD.... 

MOTHER IS FROM YESTER YEARS.... MOTHER IS FROM THE VERY ORIGIN OF GENESIS.... MOTHER IS FROM THE ANCESTORS.... SHE HAS BEEN A MOTHER MANY MANY TIMES.... ON SEEING HER AFFECTION , YOU REALISE THAT SHE IS FROM THE DEEP PAST.... THE BOND OF LOVE HAS TRAVELLED MANY GENERATIONS, MANY THOUSANDS OF YEARS.... YOU REALISE THAT HER LOVE IS THE BEST IN THIS WORLD.....THERE IS NOTHING TO MATCH HER LOVE SINCE SHE HERSELF IS FROM THE VERY ORIGIN OF EXISTENCE AND WITHOUT ANY SELFISH TINGE TO THE CHILD....

UTANGA BELONGED TO BRAHMIN COMMUNITY AND WAS LORD KRISHNA'S CHILD HOOD FRIEND.... LORD KRISHNA UPON UTANGA'S REQUEST GRANTED HIM A BOON... THE BOON WAS WHENEVER UTANGA FELT THIRSTY, LORD KRISHNA WILL PROVIDE HIM WITH WATER... ONE DAY WHEN UTANGA WAS VERY THIRSTY, A NISHADA (A LOW CASTE HUNTER) APPEARED BEFORE HIM AND OFFERED WATER FROM AN ANIMAL SKIN BAG.... UTANGA REFUSED TO ACCEPT THIS WATER, SINCE HE WAS A NISHADA.... THE NISHADA PLEADED WITH HIM TO HAVE THE WATER BUT UTANGA REFUSED.....NISHADA DISAPPEARED AND LORD KRISHNA APPEARED....

LORD KRISHNA..... UTANGA, YOU MISSED A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY.... WHEN YOU WERE THIRSTY, I HAD SENT LORD INDRA WITH THE DIVINE NECTAR, WHICH IF YOU HAD DRUNK WOULD HAVE BLESSED YOU WITH IMMORTALITY.... BUT YOU HAD DISPLAYED ARROGANCE BY SEEING DIFFERENCE ON THE BASIS OF CASTE AND HENCE LOST AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE WITH ME FOR EVER'.....

WHEN THE TIME COMES, THE URGE TO BE IN THE COMPANY OF A MASTER ARISES....TILL SUCH TIME IT IS MORE LIKE AN EXHIBITION..YOU JUST KEEP SEEING THE PRODUCTS EXHIBITED..... YOU MIGHT HAVE SEEN HIM OR KNOWN HIM, BUT THE URGE WILL NOT BE THERE TO BE WITH HIM.... THIS IS VERY NORMAL WITH MOST OF US.... THAT'S WHY IT IS SAID, WHEN THE DISCIPLE IS READY, MASTER ARRIVES... TILL SUCH TIME, THE MASTER MAY BE A RELATIVE, MAY BE A FRIEND, MAY BE AN ACQUAINTANCE, MAY BE A COLLEAGUE ETC., WHETHER YOU ARE A RELATIVE, OR FRIEND OR AN ACQUAINTANCE OR A COLLEAGUE, THE MASTER HAS ENROLLED YOU AND DOES SELFLESS SERVICE TO YOU WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE... THE TIME HAS TO ARRIVE TO BE IN HIS COMPANY..... IT'S ALL A MATTER OF TIME....
  
THEY LOVED EACH OTHER FOR MORE THAN 15 YEARS AND THE PARENTS OF BOTH FAMILIES EXPECT THEM TO DITCH EACH OTHER AND MARRY SOME ONE ELSE AS PER THEIR CHOICE....

TO ME, THE THINKING OF THE PARENTS OF THE BOY AND GIRL ARE HIGHLY IMMORAL....

GYANA YOGA IS THE SUBJECT MATTER OF INTELLIGENCE....

INTELLECTUALS ARE IN NO WAY CONNECTED WITH IT....


DHARMAM CHARA.....
........TAITREYA UPANISHAD....

 DHARMAM CHARA MEANS NOT JUST MONEY OR MATERIALS TO BE GIVEN TO ONE WHO IS IN NEED..... SOME ONE MAY BE IN NEED OF SOME SERVICE... MAY BE PHYSICAL OR MENTAL..... SOME ONE MAY BE IN NEED OF LOVE.... SOME ONE MAY BE IN NEED OF A FEW CONSOLING WORDS, SINCE HE OR SHE IS IN DISTRESS..... YOU HAVE TO GO TO THEM AND BE OF USE TO SUCH PEOPLE.... LIFE IS NOTHING ELSE BUT SELFLESS SERVICE....
  
THE ENTIRE LIFE CAN BE DIVIDED IN TO TWO....
  
EITHER YOU DO SERVICE TO SOME ONE
OR
SOME ONE DOES SERVICE TO YOU.....
  
ALL ACTIVITIES IN THIS WORLD ARE JUST A REFLECTION OF THIS....

HE DOES A LOT OF SELF LESS SERVICE..... ONE DAY , I HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO PICK UP HIS SANDALS AND KEEP IT READY FOR HIM TO WEAR....
  
HE...'GURUJI, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? THIS HURTS ME'....
  
I SMILED AND SAID....'YOU DO A LOT OF SELF LESS SERVICE... LET ME ALSO HAVE THE PLEASURE OF DOING SOMETHING IN A SMALL WAY TO YOU..ALLOW OTHERS TO ALSO SERVE YOU'.....

WHEN OTHERS WANT TO DO SOME SERVICE TO YOU, ALLOW THEM TO DO IT.... GIVE THEM THAT PLEASURE OF HAVING DONE SOME THING WORTHY TO YOU... DON'T BE TOO RIGID... IT IS TOO INHUMANE TO REJECT SERVICE...

V S MURTHY IS AN IMPECCABLE GENTLEMAN KNOWN TO ME FROM TIME IMMEMORIAL... I THINK HE ALSO SEES AND LISTENS TO A LOT OF PROGRAMMES ON THE TV CHANNEL ABOUT DHARMA, KARMA, RUNAM ETC., HE FEELS ACCEPTING SERVICE IS RUNAM.... PLEASE REMEMBER MURTHY THEN GIVING SERVICE TOO LEADS TO RUNAM.... SO IN THAT CASE YOU SHOULD NEITHER DO ANY SERVICE OR RECEIVE ANY SERVICE.... MURTHY, IS IT POSSIBLE TO LIVE IN THIS WORLD UNDER SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES.... RIGHT FROM THE DAY ONE YOU WERE BORN, SO MANY PEOPLE WOULD HAVE DONE SO MANY SERVICES TO YOU... YOU WOULD HAVE DONE SO MANY SERVICES TO OTHERS? WHAT HAPPENS TO ALL THIS?.... EVERYTHING IS LORD'S GRACE AND LORD IS THE DOER.... BE GRACEFUL TO ACCEPT THE SERVICES DONE BY OTHERS... DON'T BE VERY SELFISH IN DENYING THEM SOME SMALL PLEASURES ARISING OUT OF SUCH SERVICE.... DROP YOUR EGO...

THE EGO IN US MAKES US FEEL PROUD THAT WE ARE INDEPENDENT..... PLEASE REMEMBER, WHEN WE ARE BORN WE NEED TWO PEOPLE AS PARENTS AND WHEN WE DIE WE AT LEAST NEED FOUR PEOPLE TO CARRY THE COFFIN.... WE CALL OURSELF INDEPENDENT... IT IS JUST IN~DEPENDENT.... INFACT OUR DEPENDENCY HAS GONE UP AFTER BIRTH.... ONCE WE ARE BORN, WE ARE ALWAYS DEPENDENT ON OTHERS... DEPENDENCE IS NOT JUST MONEY.... THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF THINGS ON WHICH OUR INDEPENDENCE IS PUT TO TEST IN DAY TO DAY LIFE...JUST THINK ABOUT IT AND WE WILL KNOW HOW MUCH DEPENDENT WE ARE ..

SERVICE SHOULD BE DONE WITH ALL HUMBLENESS AND HUMILITY.... SERVICE WITHOUT A TINGE OF ARROGANCE... BOW LOW WHILE DOING SERVICE... TREAT THE OTHER PERSON AS GOD.... REMEMBER GOD HAS COME IN THAT FORM.... IT'S A GREAT OPPORTUNITY GIVEN BY HIM TO SERVE HIM.... SERVICE TO HUMANITY IS SERVICE TO GOD... SERVICE TO NATURE IS SERVICE TO GOD.... DO SELFLESS SERVICE WITHOUT ANY PUBLICITY....
  
THE EARTH IS VERY THANKFUL TO THE SEED AND THE SEED IS THANKFUL TO THE EARTH.... THE SEED AND THE EARTH ARE THANKFUL TO RAIN AND THE CLOUDS THANK THE SUN.... THE PLANT HAS SPROUTED FROM THE SEED AND IT THANKS THE EXISTENCE FOR HAVING GIVEN IT A CHANCE TO COME ALIVE... SO ONE IS COMPLIMENTARY TO THE OTHER.... SO LIFE IS COMPLIMENTARY TO NATURE AND NATURE IS COMPLIMENTARY TO LIFE....

A DONOR COMPLIMENTS THE ACCEPTOR AND VICE VERSA.... BOTH WILL HAVE NO VALUE AND MEANING, IF THE OTHER DOESN'T EXIST...

WHAT DID YOU BRING TO TAKE WITH YOU? HAD YOU BROUGHT SOMETHING WITH YOU, THEN YOU CAN BLAME OTHERS TO HAVE CHEATED YOU.....
  
THE RELATIVES INSTIGATED HIM AND HE FILED A DIVORCE...
  
I TOLD HER....'AN AXE DOES NOT CUT DOWN A TREE BY ITSELF'.....

BOTH THE HUSBAND AND WIFE ARE AT LOGGER HEADS... THEY HAVE BEEN FIGHTING FOR YEARS AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT.... NOW A THIRD PARTY IS WORKING A SCHEME OF COMPROMISE..THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HUSBAND AND WIFE IS DIVINE....FIGHTS MAY BE THERE...BUT DO THEY NEED A THIRD PARTY TO COME TO A TERM OF COMPROMISE?...... I FEEL THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE AND RELATIONSHIP IS ALREADY LOST ONCE A THIRD PERSON ENTERS THE SCENE....

WHEN YOU WEAR A THIRUMAN AND SHREECHOORNAM OR VIBHUTHI OR KUMKUMAM OR SANDAL PASTE OR WEAR SYMBOLS OF GOD OR KAJAL, IT HAS GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH RELIGION OR CASTE OR CREED, IT'S JUST A MATTER OF FAITH AND DEVOTION TO THE UNIVERSAL GOD.... 

THE EGO IN HIM DOESN'T ALLOW HIM TO ACCEPT WHAT HE CANNOT CHANGE....

IT SADDENS ME TO DIFFERENTIATE PEOPLE BASED ON RELIGION, CASTE, CREED, COMMUNITY, RACE OR SEX.... I DON'T BELONG TO THE SCHOOL WHICH PREACHES DIVISION.... IT IS UNFORTUNATE THAT SOME DO PRACTICE DIVISION IN THE RELIGIOUS FIELD..... SOME HOW I FEEL ORTHODOXY AND UNTOUCHABILITY ARE CLOSELY LINKED... WE NEED TO DROP THIS ATTITUDE IN THE INTEREST OF WORLD AT LARGE.....

A MURDERER COMMITS A CRIME ONLY ONCE, BUT A LIAR COMMITS IT THOUSANDS OF TIME......

OFFER WHAT YOU LIKE MOST TO LORD.... THIS IS THE SPIRIT OF DEVOTION....

HE NEVER LIKES TO EAT BITTER GOURD (KARELA).... FUNNY GUY.... AT KASI, HE TOOK AN OATH THAT HE WILL NEVER CONSUME IT IN FUTURE...

THE RELATIVES INSTIGATED HIM AND HE FILED A DIVORCE...
I TOLD HER....'AN AXE DOES NOT CUT DOWN A TREE BY ITSELF'.....

WHAT DID YOU BRING TO TAKE WITH YOU? HAD YOU BROUGHT SOMETHING WITH YOU, THEN YOU CAN BLAME OTHERS TO HAVE CHEATED YOU.....

WHEN SOME ONE APOLOGISES FOR THEIR MISTAKE, DON'T BE HARSH WITH THEM..... IT SHOWS YOU DON'T KNOW THE REALITY.... ONLY PEOPLE WHO CAN'T APPRECIATE REALITY, REACT....

PEOPLE WHO GET CONSTANTLY AGITATED AND IMPULSIVE CAN NEVER BE A GOOD LEADER.... AGITATION AND IMPULSIVENESS LEADS TO DISHONEST DECISIONS WHICH WILL BE WRONG IN THE LONG RUN....

I AM TALKING OF A GROWTH BEYOND MONEY, POWER AND FAME..... IF YOU INTROSPECT YOU WILL KNOW WHETHER YOU HAVE GROWN....

SOME TIMES YOUR MATURITY IS GUAGED IN SAYING A STAUNCH 'NO' INSTEAD OF SUPERFICIALLY SAYING A 'YES'....

A SUPERIOR PERSON IS DEVOID OF PRETENSIONS...

THERE IS A LOT OF DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ARROGANCE AND ASSERTIVENESS..... ARROGANCE IS MORE REACTIVE....

THE ONLY WAY TO STOP PONDERING ABOUT THE PAST IS TO STEADILY LIVE THE PRESENT..... IF YOU ARE THINKING MORE ABOUT PAST, IT MEANS YOU HAVE LESS WORK IN THE PRESENT..... LOAD WITH WORK IN THE PRESENT....

BEING FROZEN AND NOT TAKING A DECISION IS NOT LEADERSHIP....

WHEN OPPOSED NORMALLY PEOPLE DEFEND THEMSELVES... A WISE MAN UNDERSTANDS THE OPPOSITION AND DOESN'T REACT.....

SHE LACKED PATIENCE..... SHE WANTED TO TALK TO ME AND SENT A MESSAGE...I WAS IN MY OWN WORLD AND WAS BUSY..... SHE THOUGHT THAT I MAY NOT RESPOND.... IF YOU WANT TO REMAIN WITH ME, YOU NEED TO PATIENTLY WAIT FOR MY RESPONSE...DONT JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS FOR CONCLUSIONS WILL IN TURN JUMP ON YOU....

SPEAKING TRUTH IS NOT ALWAYS COMFORTABLE.....

I JUST LOVE THE UNPREDICTABLE AND UNCERTAIN, MOTHER NATURE.... SHE OPENS UP A LITTLE BIT, AND OUR LOGICIANS, SCIENTISTS COME OUT WITH A THEORY.... AFTER A FEW YEARS THEY ARE MADE TO RETRACT THEIR HYPOTHESIS.... ONCE THEY ARE PROUD OF THEIR ACHIEVEMENT, SHE DOES SOMETHING TO HURT THEIR EGO.... SO WHEN YOU THINK THIS IS CERTAIN, NATURE PROVES IT AS UNCERTAIN..... WHEN YOU THINK IT IS UNCERTAIN, SHE GIVES YOU IDEAS TO THINK THAT IT IS CERTAIN...IT'S A NEVER ENDING HIDE AND SEEK PLAY OF THE MOTHER NATURE..

PERUMBAVOOR SRI NEELAKANTAN NAMBOODRI....
THE WORLD OF PRAYOGA SASTRA HAS LOST A DISTINGUISHED SCHOLAR AND A DISCIPLINED MARTINET.... SRI NEELAKANTAN NAMBOODRI WHO WAS ASSISTING ME IN MY OPERATIONS HAS ATTAINED LORD'S FEET ON 12TH OF SEPTEMBER AT A RIPE AGE OF 79 YEARS.... AFTER THE DEMISE OF SRI BALAKRISHNA SASTRY, HE WAS MY RIGHT HAND AND CHIEF OF ALL THE OPERATIONS CONCERNING THE PRAYOGAMS.... MANY TIMES HE USED TO VOLUNTEER ON HIS OWN TO DO THE PARISTHARANAMS, SINGLE HANDEDLY WITH VERY MINIMUM ASSISTANCE.... MOST OF THE TIMES, I ONLY SAW A CHILD IN HIM AND HE WAS A RARE COMBINATION OF WISDOM WITH INNOCENCE...ALL HIS ACTS WERE SELFLESS AND ALWAYS FOR THE WELFARE OF HUMANITY..... PERSONALLY I HAVE LOST A FRIEND AND A GUIDE.....
MY SALUTATIONS AND PROSTRATIONS TO THE THE DEPARTED SOUL......

WHEN YOU WANT TO POSSESS THE OTHER PERSON, INSTEAD OF LOVE, IT MEANS YOU WANT THE OTHER TO BE REDUCED TO A THING.... A THING LIKE A CAR, OR A HOUSE OR GOLD OR MONEY.... THE OTHER IS NOT A THING.... THE OTHER CAN ONLY BE LOVED AND NOT POSSESSED.... POSSESSION IS SLAVERY... LOVE IS FREEDOM.....

THE PURPOSE OF A PRAYER IS TO TRANSCEND MIND.... PRAYER HELPS US TO GO BEYOND MIND..... PRAYER IS MORE FROM THE SOUL/HEART.... SO THE REACH OF THE PRAYER WILL BE BEYOND MIND.... IF PRAYER DOESN'T HELP YOU TO GO BEYOND MIND, THEN IT IS NOT AT ALL A PRAYER.... IT IS JUST SOME SORT OF A TRICK AIDED BY THE MIND....

LEARN TO IGNORE, THE IGNORANT ARROGANCE OF OTHERS...... DON'T GIVE THAT MUCH IMPORTANCE TO ARROGANCE.... IN FACT THE BEST WAY IS TO IGNORE AND MAKE THE OTHER PERSON FEEL THAT IT DID NOT HAVE ANY IMPACT ON YOU... DON'T KEEP LISTENING TO EVERYTHING, ALSO PRACTICE TO JUST HEAR SO THAT SUCH ARROGANCE CAN BE EFFECTIVELY DEALT WITH, WITHOUT ANY RESPONSE TO IT FROM YOUR SIDE......

IF YOU GIVE TOO MUCH IMPORTANCE TO A WRONG SOURCE BECAUSE OF YOUR WEAKNESS, YOU WILL STAND BULLIED....

ALWAYS QUARRELLING WITH OTHERS IS AN INCURABLE DISEASE.....

ALWAYS EXPECTING OTHERS TO TOE YOUR LINE, WILL CERTAINLY LEAD TO DISAPPOINTMENT SOME OTHER DAY....

BEHAVING PLEASANTLY WITH IRRITABLE PEOPLE IS AN ART..

WITH SOME YOU FEEL JOYOUS,
WITH SOME YOU FEEL DRAINED....
YOU SMELL IT SO WELL....
-VASANAS.....

A TRUE PRAYOGI DOESN'T REJECT ANYTHING.... HE ACCEPTS EVERYTHING AS A GIFT OF GOD..... HE USES EVERYTHING FOR THE WELFARE OF THE COSMOS.... HE SEES VALUE IN ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING.... HE NEVER SHOWS ANY DISRESPECT OR DISREGARD TO ANYTHING... HE IS NOT PARTIAL... HE IS TOTAL.... HE IS ALWAYS IN CONVERSATION WITH GOD.....

SHE LOVED HIM DEEPLY FROM HER HEART.... HE DITCHED HER AND MARRIED SOME ONE ELSE..... TODAY SHE HAS FORGOTTEN WHAT HEART IS.... SHE IS NOW FULL OF MIND AND SUSPECTS EVERY ONE.... LET US PRAY FOR HER... SHE SHOULD GET A PERSON WHO TRULY LOVES HER AND ACCEPTS HER FOR WHAT SHE IS, SO THAT THE HEART WILL ONCE AGAIN BLOSSOM AND THE SUSPICIOUS MIND WILL CEASE TO EXIST.......

ALWAYS PRAY FOR ALL..... IN THAT 'ALL' , YOU TOO ARE INCLUDED....

HE..... GURUJI, MY BROTHER IS GOOD AT HEART BUT HIS TONGUE IS BAD.....
ME....YOU ARE FORTUNATE.....HE IS A DIVINE BROTHER.... I KNOW PEOPLE WHO ARE GOOD AT TONGUE BUT BAD AT HEART.....

HE IS A VERY SHREWD GUY...WHEN SOME ONE GOES TO HIM TO ASK MONEY AS LOAN, HE WILL SENSE IT IN ADVANCE AND IN TURN WILL ASK FOR LOAN TO THE PERSON WHO COMES TO ASK....
LOL...

AN ABLE LEADER IS CAPABLE OF CONVERTING ANY MATERIAL ON HAND IN TO GOLD..... ONLY HALF BAKED ONES KEEP FINDING FAULT WITH HIS TEAM.....

DON'T USE FORCE TO OBTAIN ANYTHING...IT'S NOT FAIR...... YOU WILL FACE BIGGER TROUBLES IN FUTURE.....

IN THE SYSTEM OF NATURE, EVERY ONE IS UNIQUE..... SO IT IS ABSURD TO COMPARE, LEAVE ALONE FEELING SUPERIOR OR INFERIOR.....

TO ACCEPT PEOPLE AS THEY ARE IS A GREAT VIRTUE...A WISE MAN UNDERSTANDS AND NEVER CHANGES HIS ATTITUDE OF COMPASSION TO SUCH PEOPLE....

HE..... MY BROTHER ALWAYS USES ME..... .... HE USES MY MONEY..... RECENTLY HE USED MY MONEY AND BUILT A HOUSE FOR HIMSELF AT MY PLACE....
ME....YEAH, I CAN UNDERSTAND THIS..... EVEN A BIRD USES OTHER BIRD'S FEATHERS TO BUILD ITS OWN NEST.....

NEITHER IT IS EASY TO DEVELOP GOOD HABITS NOR IS IT EASY TO DROP THE UNWANTED ONES....KEEP TRYING.... IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIME....YOU CAN TURN IT AROUND....

IF YOUR SKILL OR TALENT IS NOT USEFUL TO THE WORLD AT LARGE, IT IS MEANINGLESS TO CLAIM OF HAVING POSSESSED IT.....

MOST OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE JUDGMENTAL, LACK COMPASSION...... YET THERE ARE SOME WHO ARE WISE TO BALANCE BOTH.....

MERE ACCUMULATION OF KNOWLEDGE DOESNT END YOUR MISERY..... IT'S JUST GARBAGE....

WHETHER YOU ARE A FRIEND OR A CURIOUS VISITOR OR A FOLLOWER OR A DISCIPLE OR A DEVOTEE, MY PRAYERS ARE ALWAYS THERE FOR YOUR WELFARE..... BUT DON'T IMPOSE OR FORCE OTHERS TO FOLLOW ME.....THIS IS UNFAIR.... RESPECT THE OTHER PERSON'S VIEWS AND INDIVIDUALITY...BY FORCING OTHERS YOU MAY BE HARMING THE SYSTEM MORE.... . MY RELATIONSHIP WITH EACH ONE OF YOU IS UNIQUE AND CANNOT BE COMPARED.... I VALUE YOUR BEING WITH ME , IN WHICH EVER CAPACITY IT MAY BE.... I HAVE BEEN CONDITIONED TO PRAY FOR ALL OF YOU TO GOD....

NEVER ASK ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PERSONAL LIFE OF OTHERS.... IT IS VERY INDECENT....INFACT TO ME, IT IS HEIGHT OF IMMORALITY.... SUPPOSE THE OTHER PERSON WANTS TO DIVULGE SOME PERSONAL INFORMATION, YOU GIVE AN EAR TO THEM.... BUT NEVER SPEAK ABOUT IT TO ANY ONE... DON'T BETRAY THE CONFIDENCE REPOSED BY THE OTHER....

INTERFERING IN OTHERS PRIVACY IS A SOCIAL CRIME....

EVEN IF YOU HAVE GOT TO KNOW SOMETHING PRIVATE ABOUT THE OTHER, PRETEND AS THOUGH YOU ARE UNAWARE OF IT..... WITH SUCH AN ATTITUDE, YOU WILL MAKE THE OTHER MORE COMFORTABLE....

EVERY PERSON HAS GOT A RIGHT TO GUARD HIS/HER PRIVATE LIFE.... THERE IS A LOT OF SANCTITY ATTACHED TO IT.... RESPECT THAT SANCTITY AND MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS...

PEOPLE SOMETIMES POST ON FACEBOOK, THE PHOTOGRAPHS OF KIN AND KITH OR SOME TIMES THEIR VACATION WITH FAMILY ETC., ....IF YOU DO SO, PLEASE REMEMBER YOU ARE FEEDING OTHERS CURIOSITY AND MAY BE IN TROUBLE IN THE LONG RUN....

YOUR PRIVATE LIFE CANNOT BE AN OPEN BOOK FOR OTHERS TO GET TO KNOW....

ONE SHOULD LEARN TO GUARD THEIR PERSONAL LIFE.... SELF RESTRAINT AND CARE SHOULD BE EXERCISED NOT TO TAMPER THE SANCTITY OF ONE'S OWN PERSONAL LIFE....

INCASE YOU CHOSE TO DIVULGE SOME THING PERSONAL AND PRIVATE, THE OTHER PERSON MUST BE EQUALLY TRUSTWORTHY.... HE SHOULD NOT BETRAY YOUR INTEREST..... IT TAKES A VERY LONG TIME TO CONFIDE WITH THE OTHER.....

YOU NEED NOT BE TRANSPARENT TO OTHERS ABOUT YOUR PRIVATE LIFE..... IF THE OTHER EXPECTS YOU TO DIVULGE, BETTER TO SMILE AND KEEP AWAY FROM SUCH NOSY PEOPLE..

TO BE GRACEFUL IS LORD'S GRACE.....

GRATITUDE CANNOT BE INJECTED IN TO A PERSON....

PURSUIT OF PLEASURE DOESN'T NECESSARILY LEAD TO HAPPINESS....
BUT
IN PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS LIES THE ETERNAL PLEASURE....

IN TRUST ALWAYS LIES THE RISK OF BETRAYAL.....

OUR PRAYERS....LORD'S GRACE.....

NOT ALL SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE ARE CONTENDED... BUT THOSE WHO HAVE ACHIEVED CONTENTMENT IN LIFE WILL BE PEOPLE WHO HAVE ATTAINED TREMENDOUS SUCCESS IN ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE..... RUNNING IN TO RELIGION OR PHILOSOPHY WHEN YOU ARE NOT OTHERWISE SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE, IS NOT CONTENTMENT.... SOME TIMES PEOPLE HAVE RUN IN TO RELIGION , SINCE THEY WERE A BIG FAILURE IN MATERIALISTIC LIFE.... SUCH PEOPLE CONDEMN MATERIALISTIC LIFE WITH THE SOLE AIM TO ACHIEVE SOME MATERIAL SUCCESS UNDER THE GARB OF RELIGION....SO THE WISE MAN HAS HIS USUAL DOSE OF LAUGH ON SEEING SUCH ELEMENTS.....

ACCEPT AND LIVE LIFE AUTHENTICALLY..... GOD IS THERE ALWAYS BY YOUR SIDE..... HE IS THE DOER....HIS GRACE ALONE MATTERS IN LIFE.... WHAT EVER YOU DO OR DON'T DO IS PURELY HIS GRACE.... EMBRACE THE UNCERTAIN LIFE WITH HIS GRACE.... HE IS THE ARCHITECT OF ALL YOUR DESIRES... INFACT IT IS HIS DESIRE.... THE ILLUSION HE CREATES IN US MAKES US TO OWN OUR DESIRES.... HIS GRACE WILL HELP YOU TO COME OUT OF THIS ILLUSION... HE LIKES PLAYING HIDE AND SEEK WITH YOU.... SO ACCEPT HIS OFFER OF LIFE AND BE JOYOUS....IF YOU ACCEPT LIFE AS IT COMES, YOU ARE A REALISED SOUL AND YOU ARE LIVING AN AUTHENTIC LIFE.... HE TAKES CARE OF US AND CERTAINLY HE IS THE UNIVERSAL MOTHER....

IN THE NAME OF PERFECTION, DON'T BE CRUDE OR DISCOURTEOUS TO OTHERS.... OTHERS MAY LOOK AT YOU WITH AWE WHEN YOU PROJECT YOURSELF AS MR.PERFECT... BUT I WILL NOT.... I CAN ONLY LAUGH AT YOU, SINCE YOU LOOK LIKE A CLOWN TO ME.... WHOM ARE YOU DUPING? TO ME PERFECTION IS A MYTH.....I KNOW FULLY WELL THAT YOU ARE JUST ONE MORE LIAR....

WHEN SOME ONE COMES AND ACCEPTS HIS MISTAKES, BE GRACIOUS TO SAY.....'DON'T WORRY....NO BIG DEAL.... EVEN I HAVE COMMITTED SIMILAR ONES IN MY LIFE'
WHETHER YOU COMMITTED IT OR NOT, MAKE THE OTHER COMFORTABLE.... DON'T POUNCE ON HIM.... HAVE EMPATHY.... JUST APPRECIATE HIS SINCERITY IN ADMITTING THE MISTAKE..... IN FACT YOU MAY NOT BE THAT COURAGEOUS TO ACCEPT AND OWN MISTAKES.... SO HE MAY BE FAR SUPERIOR IN HIS ACTION.... HE IS TEACHING YOU SOMETHING WHICH GRACIOUSLY LEARN.....

BEING EMPATHETIC AND SYMPATHETIC TO OTHERS IS A SIGN OF INNER GROWTH AND MATURITY.... IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO PRACTICE THIS, INCASE YOU ARE SELF CENTRED.....

Parama Guruvulu

THERE WAS A SMALL VILLAGE NEAR A DENSE BIG FOREST.. SUNDARAVALLI AND CHAKRARAJAN WERE A COUPLE WHO LIVED IN THE HAMLET.... CHAKRARAJAN WAS A WOOD CUTTER AND WAS LIVING BY SELLING THE CUT WOODS IN A NEARBY TOWN...EVERY DAY SUNDARAVALLI USED TO GO TO THE RIVER NEAR THEIR VILLAGE TO BRING FRESH WATER..... THEY HAD A 'LAKSHMI NRUSIMHA' VIGRAHA IN THEIR HOME.... THEY USED TO BATHE THE LORD, DRESSING UP WITH GOOD CLOTHES, DECORATE HIM BEAUTIFULLY AND OFFERED FOOD TO HIM...EVERY DAY THE FOOD, AFTER OFFERING WILL REDUCE IN QUANTITY ALMOST 1/2 AND THEY WILL BE VERY HAPPY THAT LORD HAS CONSUMED THE FOOD... THE REST FOOD, THEY WILL TAKE AS PRASADAM.... THEY WILL ALWAYS BE SINGING SONGS IN THE PRAISE OF LORD... THEIR LIFE WAS MOVING ON LIKE THIS.....
SUNDARAVALLI WAS COOKING FOOD AND CHAKRARAJAN WAS MAKING ARRANGEMENTS FOR THEIR DAILY WORSHIP AND PRAYERS....
AFTER SOME TIME THEY SAW AN ELDERLY PERSON NEAR THE DOOR AND ASKED HIM TO COME INSIDE.... THE OLD MAN GLADLY CAME INSIDE AND SAT DOWN...THE OLD MAN SAID THAT HE WAS HUNGRY....THEY TOLD HIM THAT HE CAN HAVE FOOD, ONCE THE LORD HAS HIS FOOD...
THEY WENT THROUGH THE RITUALS AND OFFERED THE FOOD TO LORD LAKSHMI NRUSIMHA SWAMY.... THEY NOTICED THAT THE FOOD WAS INTACT AND HAS NOT REDUCED AS WOULD NORMALLY HAPPEN... THEY GOT TERRIBLY UPSET AND STARTED CRYING....
OLD MAN.... 'WHY ARE YOU BOTH CRYING? WHAT HAS HAPPENED NOW SUDDENLY?.... YOU HAD PERFORMED ALL THE RITUALS , POOJA VERY DEDICATEDLY AND I DON'T FIND ANY MISTAKES IN YOUR METHOD OF WORSHIP.... SO WHY ARE YOU CRYING?'....
SUNDARAVALLI SAID...'EVERY DAY WHEN WE COOK FOOD, THE LORD WILL CONSUME 1/2 AND WE WILL CONSUME THE OTHER HALF AS PRASADAM.... BUT TODAY, HE HAS NOT EATEN ANYTHING.....
CHAKRARAJAN INNOCENTLY CRIED AND SAID....'WHY SHOULD LORD FOREGO FOOD TODAY?..... IF HE DOESN'T EAT WILL HE NOT FEEL HUNGRY LATER IN THE DAY? OR HAS HE GONE TO TAKE FOOD ELSE WHERE? BUT UNLESS HE EATS, WE CANNOT EAT....HE NORMALLY EATS HALF THE FOOD AND LEAVES REST HALF FOR US'....
THE OLD MAN LAUGHED AND SAID....'WHAT KIND OF STUPIDITY IS THIS? WILL EVER GOD CONSUME FOOD? YOU WANT ME TO BELIEVE THAT LORD WILL EAT HALF AND LEAVE HALF TO YOU? SYMBOLICALLY WE KEEP FOOD AND PRESUME THAT HE HAS EATEN....ALL THIS IS JUST GIMMICKS.... INITIALLY I THOUGHT YOU BOTH ARE DEDICATED IN WORSHIP TO LORD LAKSHMI NRUSIMHA SWAMY.... BUT NOW I FIND YOU ARE PLAYING TRICKS.... I AM GETTING LATE...WHETHER YOU EAT OR NOT, PLEASE PUT THAT FOOD TO ME.... LET ME EAT AND LEAVE THIS PLACE'....
SUNDARAVALLI...'HOW CAN WE OFFER FOOD TO YOU, WITHOUT OUR LORD CONSUMING IT?'....
THE OLD MAN GOT ANGRY AND WAS ABOUT TO LEAVE....
SUNDARAVALLI....'SORRY...I DIDN'T MEAN TO OFFEND YOU... PLEASE SIT AND EAT THE FOOD'....
THEY OFFERED FOOD TO THE OLD MAN.... THE OLD MAN EXACTLY TOOK HALF OF THE FOOD AND LEFT THE REMAINING FOOD....
OLD MAN...'NOW THAT I HAVE EATEN HALF OF FOOD, PLEASE EAT THE REST FOOD....SINCE YOU SAID LORD EATS HALF THE FOOD AND LEAVES REST HALF FOR YOU, I HAVE EATEN HALF AND LEFT REST FOR YOU TO EAT'..'.....
CHAKRARAJAN......'SHALL I PACK THE REMAINING FOOD AND GIVE IT TO YOU.... YOU CAN EAT IT AS YOU GO BACK HOME'.....
OLD MAN....' I LIVE UP THE MOUNTAIN THERE..... THE FOOD WHAT YOU GAVE ME IS MORE THAN ENOUGH.... BUT IF YOU DONT TAKE THE FOOD, IT WILL BE AN INSULT TO THIS OLD MAN'....
CHAKRARAJAN SAID...'MANY TIMES I HAVE GONE UP THE MOUNTAIN.... I HAVE NOT FOUND ANY ONE LIVING THERE'..
OLD MAN LAUGHED AND SAID....'I LIVE UP THERE... I CAN SHOW YOU MY PLACE PROVIDED YOU BOTH EAT THIS FOOD AND COME WITH ME'....
CHAKRARAJAN TOLD SUNDARAVALLI....'TODAY LORD NRUSIMHA HAS DECIDED NOT TO EAT.... BUT THIS OLD MAN CAME AS A SAVIOUR AND ATE THE FOOD.... TREATING HIM AS LORD LAKSHMI NRUSIMHA AND THIS OLD MAN'S INSTRUCTION AS HIS WILL, LET US EAT.... LET US GO WITH HIM AND GET TO KNOW HIS PLACE'....
THE OLD MAN SAID....'YES....ONE MORE CONDITION.... LIKE YOU SERVED FOOD TO ME, I WILL SERVE FOOD TO YOU'....
THE OLD MAN SERVED AND THEY ATE THE FOOD....
THEY WENT WITH THE OLD MAN UP THE MOUNTAIN...THEY ENTERED A CAVE AND HE DISAPPEARED...THEY SAW LORD NRUSIMHA SWAMY KEEPING HIS MOUTH WIDE OPEN.....
CHAKRARAJAN AND SUNDARAVALLI WERE THRILLED AND STARTED SINGING IN THE PRAISE OF LORD.....
THEY MADE IT A POINT TO VISIT THE LORD EVERY DAY AFTER ARADHANAM AT HOME TO LORD LAKSHMI NRUSIMHA SWAMY...
AFTER A FEW YEARS THEY WERE BLESSED WITH A MALE BABY AND THEY NAMED HIM 'SRI HARI'.... SRI HARI GREW UP TO BECOME ONE OF THE MASTERS IN OUR GURU PARAMPARA AND HIS NAME IS 'MAHADHEERAR'......
THOSE DAYS MANGALAGIRI WAS A SMALL VILLAGE AND THERE WAS A DENSE FOREST.... UP THE MOUNTAIN IS 'LORD PANAKALA NRUSIMHA SWAMY'.....
PRAYOGA CHAKRAVARTHY SRI MAHADHEERA MAHARAJ KI JAI....
OM SRI PANAKALA NRUSIMHA SWAMINE NAMAHA....
LORD'S GRACE...

MADHAVAN OPENED HIS EYES AND SAW THE YOUNG BOY, MAY BE AROUND 7 YEARS OF AGE....
MADHAVAN...' WHY DID YOU SPOIL MY DHYANA?'
THE BOY LAUGHED AND ASKED, ' OH, YOU CALL THIS AS DHYANA?'
MADHAVAN....'OH YOU CAN EVEN SPELL THE WORD DHYANA?'....
THE BOY...'WHY SPELL? I CAN INITIATE THE REAL DHYAN IN YOU'..
MADHAVAN...'IS THAT SO? FIRST TELL ME WHY DID U SPOIL MY DHYANA?'...
THE BOY LAUGHED AND SAID...'WHEN YOU CAN SPOIL MY DHYANA, CAN I NOT SPOIL YOUR DHYANA?'....
MADHAVAN...'WHEN DID I SPOIL YOUR DHYANA?'...
THE BOY SAID....'YOU HAVE BEEN SITTING ALL THROUGH DAY FOR 48 DAYS OPPOSITE TO ME AND SPOILING MY DHYANA...DON'T I HAVE THE RIGHT TO SPOIL YOUR DHYAN IN THE LEAST FOR A DAY?'
THE BOY LAUGHED AND IT ECHOED EVERY WHERE AND RAN INSIDE THE TEMPLE AND MERGED WITH THE 'MAARTHAANDA BHAIRAVA' MOOLA VIRAAT...
JUST THEN A BRAHMIN CAME WITH A 3 DAY OLD KID AND SAID..
'MY WIFE DELIVERED THIS CHILD AND EXPIRED... MY KULA DEVATA SRI MAARTHAANDA BHAIRAVA OF THIS TEMPLE APPEARED IN MY DREAM AND ASKED ME TO FORTHWITH HANDOVER THE CHILD TO YOU.... SO I HAVE COME WITH THE KID....PLEASE ACCEPT HIM AS YOUR SON'.....
MADHAVAN NAMBOODHRI THANKED THE LORD AND THE BRAHMAN FOR THE MAHA PRASADAM.....MADHAVAN NAMBOODHRI AND RADHA LEFT FOR THEIR VILLAGE VERY JOYOUSLY....
THE KID IS NONE OTHER THAN MY MASTER ' SRI NARAYANAN NAMBOODHRI'.......

ANOTHER STORY ABOUT HYDERABAD......
VAAMACHARI GAJANAND'S ELDER BROTHER WAS HEMANAND WHO WAS ALSO A VAAMACHARI... THEY HAD A SISTER BY NAME BRAHMARAMBHA..... BRAHMARAMBHA WAS A VERY PIOUS LADY AND NEVER LIKED WHAT HER BROTHERS WERE DOING.....
SHE HAD A MASTER BY NAME SRIPADA ACHARYA.... SHE USED TO GO AND INFORM ABOUT THE ACTIVITIES OF HEMANAND AND GAJANAND TO SRIPADA....
ONE DAY SRIPADA DECIDED TO MEET HER BROTHERS AND ADVISE THEM NOT TO INDULGE IN NEGATIVE ASPECTS OF VAAMACHARA....HE DID NOT INFORM BRAHMARAMBHA OF HIS INTENTION TO VISIT HER HOME...SO WHEN HE CAME HOME ONLY HEMANAND WAS AVAILABLE AND GAJANAND HAD GONE OUT FOR SOME WORK....EVEN BRAHMARAMBHA HAD GONE TO A TEMPLE....
SRIPADA ACHARYA INTRODUCED HIMSELF AS THE MASTER OF BRAHMARAMBA.... HEMANAND WAS SURPRISED TO HEAR THIS SINCE HE WAS NEVER AWARE OF THE FACT THAT BRAHMARAMBHA HAD A MASTER....SRIPADA STARTED ADVISING HEMANAND AND HEMANAND PRETENDED AS THOUGH HE WAS LISTENING TO SRIPADA.....
HEMANAND MIXED SOME POISON IN FRUIT JUICE AND GAVE IT TO SRIPADA..... MASTER SRIPADA DRANK IT..... SRIPADA LOST CONSCIOUSNESS AND HEMANAND TOOK HIM TO HIS BACK YARD AND BURIED HIM UNDER TWO LARGE TREES WHICH WAS ALMOST SIDE BY SIDE TOUCHING EACH OTHER.... THESE WERE THE TREES UNDER WHICH BRAHMARAMBHA USED TO SIT AND MEDITATE.....
BRAHMARAMBHA RETURNED FROM THE TEMPLE AND HEMANAND BEHAVED AS THOUGH NOTHING HAD HAPPENED..... BRAHMARAMBHA WANTED TO MEET HER MASTER SRIPADA ACHARYA AND SO WENT TO HIS HOME.... MASTER'S WIFE KUMUDAVALLI TOLD BRAHMARAMBHA THAT SRIPADA INFACT HAD GONE TO HER HOME TO MEET HER BROTHER HEMANAND....
BRAHMARAMBHA WAS SHOCKED SINCE HEMANAND DID NOT INFORM HER ABOUT SRIPADA'S VISIT HOME.... SO SHE WENT BACK HOME....
BRAHMARAMBHA ENQUIRED AS TO WHETHER HER MASTER SRIPADA ACHARYA CAME TO MEET HEMANAND....
HEMANAND....'NO ONE CAME TO MEET ME.... INFACT IT'S A NEWS TO ME THAT YOU HAVE A MASTER..... YOU NEVER TOLD ME...HAD I KNOWN THAT YOU HAD A MASTER, I WOULD HAVE GONE TO HIM TO SHOW MY REVERENCE'...
SHE COULDN'T BELIEVE HIS WORDS... SO SHE CAME AND SAT BELOW THE TWO TREES AND STARTED PRAYING TO HER ISHTA DEVATAS 'VRIKSHA BHAIRAVA AND VRIKSHA BHAVANI'...
IN THE MEAN WHILE HER MASTER SRIPADA ACHARYA DIED AND HIS SOUL WAS HANGING BELOW THE ETHER AND DUE TO THE UNNATURAL DEATH WAS NOT ABLE TO REACH THE PITRU LOKA....
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
A FAMOUS DAKSHACHAARA PRAYOGI WHO WAS A VERY GOOD FRIEND OF MAHARISHI RAJAR LIVED THOSE DAYS NEAR HYDERABAD.... HIS NAME WAS YOGESHWARA RAMANACHAR.... HE WAS MOSTLY CALLED BY THE NAME YOGI RAMANACHAR.... HE WAS IN DHYANA..... LORD VRIKSHA BHAIRAVA AND VRIKSHA BHAVANI APPEARED BEFORE HIM AND INSTRUCTED HIM TO GO TO THE PLACE OF HEMANAND....
HEMANAND SAW YOGI RAMANACHAR ENTERING HIS HOME.... HE JUST RAN AWAY.... YOGI WENT NEAR BRAHMARAMBHA WHO WAS SITTING IN DHYANA.... YOGI COULD UNDERSTAND WHAT HAD HAPPENED AND DUG THE PLACE WHERE SRIPADA ACHARYA'S BODY WAS BURIED BY HEMANAND....HE EXHUMED SRIPADA ACHARYA'S BODY AND DID SOME PRAYOGAMS.... HE COULD BRING BACK THE SOUL OF SRIPADA ACHARYA FROM BELOW THE ETHER IN TO HIS BODY.... SRIPADA ACHARYA CAME TO SENSES AND UNDERSTOOD WHAT HAD HAPPENED.....
YOGI RAMANACHAR DID NOT DISTURB BRAHMARAMBHA WHO WAS IN A STATE OF DEEP YOGA NIDRA MEDITATING ON VRIKSHA BHAIRAVA AND VRIKSHA BHAVANI..... YOGI TOOK SRIPADA ACHARYA TO HIS HOME.....
VRIKSHA BHAIRAVA AND VRIKSHA BHAVANI APPEARED BEFORE BRAHMARAMBA AND ASKED HER AS TO WHAT SHE WANTS....
BRAHMARAMBA....'I SUSPECT MY BROTHER HEMANAND HAS HARMED MY MASTER SRIPADA ACHARYA.... PLEASE SEE THAT HE IS TAKEN CARE'....
VRIKSHA BHAIRAVA AND VRIKSHA BHAVANI SMILED AND SAID.... 'YOU BETTER GO TO YOUR MASTER'S HOME AND CHECK WHETHER HE HAS RETURNED'....
THEY BOTH DISAPPEARED SAYING THIS....
BRAHMARAMBHA REACHED THE HOME OF HER MASTER SRIPADA TO FIND HER MASTER SITTING DOWN AND ANOTHER MASTER SITTING ON AN ALTAR... SHE PROSTRATED THEM.....
YOGI RAMANACHAR SMILED AND NARRATED THE ENTIRE INCIDENT..... BOTH MASTER SRIPADA ACHARYA AND BRAHMARAMBHA BECAME THE DISCIPLES OF YOGESHWARA RAMANACHAR AND LEARNT DAKSHACHARA PRAYOGA FROM HIM..
MASTER SRIPADA ACHARYA WAS BORN AS MY MASTER NARAYANAN NAMBOODHRI AND BRAHMARAMBHA WAS BORN AS MY MASTER DIDI CHANDINI IN THIS JANMA....

THE BRAHMINS WHO HAD COME TO TAKE PART IN THE SHRARDHA KARMA OF SRI HARI UPADHYAYA'S FATHER REFUSED TO TAKE FOOD, UNLESS SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY LEFT THE PLACE....
SRI HARI CAME WITH FOLDED HANDS AND TEARS IN HIS EYES SAID TO THE DIVINE MASTER......'OH LORD.... YOU LOOK LIKE A BRAHMA TEJASWI..... I DO NOT KNOW WHO YOU ARE, BUT I AM ABLE TO GATHER THAT YOU ARE A SANYASI..... I AM PERFORMING MY FATHER'S YEARLY SHRARDHA.... THE BRAHMINS WHO HAVE COME TO EAT THE FOOD ARE REFUSING TO EAT, UNLESS YOU LEAVE THE PLACE..... ON ONE SIDE IT IS THE SHRARDHA KARMA OF MY FATHER AND ON THE OTHER SIDE I FEEL BAD THAT I AM NOT ABLE TO OFFER 'BIKSHA' TO A SANYASI..I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO NOW?'....
SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY SMILED AND SAID...'DON'T WORRY.... I WILL LEAVE THE PLACE AS DESIRED BY THE BRAHMINS....PLEASE PERFORM THE SHRARDHA KARMA OF YOUR FATHER DILIGENTLY'....
SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY LEFT THE PLACE.....
THE SHRARDHA KARMA WAS OVER..... THE BRAHMINS LEFT THE HOME..... SRI HARI UPADHYAYA WAS DEEPLY THINKING OF SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY.....
AS HE WAS THINKING, SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY CAME TO SRI HARI'S RESIDENCE.... SRI HARI WAS VERY HAPPY, FELL AT THE FEET OF THE LORD....
SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY SAID....'NOW WHAT EVER YOU OFFER, I WILL HAVE IT AS BIKSHA'.....
SRI HARI SAID....'OH LORD, THERE IS SOME FOOD WHICH IS LEFT OVER WHICH I HAD OFFERED TO THE BRAHMINS'..
SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY SAID...'I WILL TAKE THEM AS THE 'BIKSHA' WHICH YOU WANTED TO OFFER ME WHEN I CAME IN THE MORNING.....
SRI HARI UPADHYAYA AND HIS WIFE CLEANED THE FEET OF THE LORD AND INVITED HIM TO PARTAKE THE FOOD...
AS SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY SAT AND WAS TAKING THE FOOD, SRI HARI SAW HIS FATHER SITTING AND TAKING THE FOOD.... HE RUBBED HIS EYES A COUPLE OF TIMES AND ASKED HIS WIFE AS TO WHO WAS TAKING THE FOOD....
HIS WIFE URMILA SAID, 'MY FATHER IN LAW IS TAKING THE FOOD'.....
AFTER TAKING THE FOOD, THE COUPLE PROSTRATED SRI NRUSIMHA SARASWATHY..... IN A YEAR'S TIME SRI HARI UPADHYAYA AND URMILA, WHO WERE CHILDLESS FOR 20 YEARS AFTER MARRIAGE, WERE BLESSED WITH A SON....
