Life and living




The Isha Upanishad (ईशोपनिषद्, ‘īśopaniṣad’) is one of the shortest of the Upanishads, in form more like a brief poem than a philosophical treatise, consisting of 17 or 18 verses in total. The Upanishad constitutes the final chapter (adhyāya) of the Shukla Yajurveda and survives in two versions, called Kanva (VSK) and Madhyandina (VSM).

The Isha Upanishad is significant for its description of the nature of the “Supreme Being”, exhibiting monism or a form of monotheism, referred to as Isha “Lord”. It describes this being as “unembodied, omniscient, beyond reproach, without veins, pure and uncontaminated” (verse 8), one who “moves and does not move’, who is ‘far away, but very near as well'” and who “although fixed in abode is swifter than the mind” (verses 4 & 5).

The first verse of the text has been cited as of particular importance to Vedanta or to Hinduism as a whole.

The first verse reads:

īśā vāsyam idaṃ sarvaṃ ¦ yat kiñca jagatyāṃ jagat |
tena tyaktena bhuñjīthā ¦ mā gṛdhaḥ kasya sviddhanam ||

literal translation (Ralph T.H. Griffith, 1899):

“Enveloped by the Lord must be This All — each thing that moves on earth.
With that renounced enjoy thyself. Covet no wealth of anyone

Simply  profound verses.

All The Truths of  living  life in this ephemeral world  is contained  in those lines.


Sharing a few more musings by my mother on the same lines.

Whatever is available to you in this world, learn to enjoy without the feeling of possession.

You are one among the many in line. Take care while it is with you without owning it.

Boomerang Effect



Love boomerangs
It is the very nature of love.
For love generates more love
In the sharing is creating
In the creation is the spreading
Of this heartfelt expansion called love.

Love is meant to flow
For life to be sustained.
Love flows its course
In its own time.
Such is the power of love
Love when channeled
In goodwill transforms the world.

In this love, life is lived
In this love writers write
Dancers dance,  artists  create
Poetry flows, Singers sing
All in the resonance of love.

Love envelopes the whole spirit
Without fear or favor
For love boomerangs
Such is nature of love.
Sweet Love!💙💜💙

Channelling life.

Create no space for hatred
Have no wish for revenge
Choose to not be filled with vengeance
Channel thoughts away from anger

Have no room for haste.
Accept patience as your friend
Be mindful, be peaceful, be grateful
And all is well.

Beauty of impermanency

Impermanent Manifestation
The beauty of life
Is in its vulnerability
As much as its resiliency

Take a tender blooming flower
It is fragile and delicate
But it expresses itself
With all its abilities.

It surely must be sensing
The morning’s vigour & vitality
The oppression of the afternoon sun
And the looming darkness of the night.

Yet it cares not that it’s time is limited
Or when the evening shadows befall
Its purpose is fulfilling for the world to see!
Such is the beauty of impermanency.

On Trust



On Trustfulness

The Way of the Universe is Abundance
It is the way of nature.
We come from it and we are nature.
Our deepest intentions
Find its way to fulfillment in time.

What is important is trustfulness
In faith of the flow
In belief and hope
For as you ensivision
The truth manifests itself.

Stay patient
Trust life
To unravel itself
And deliver in time.

Wonder of life!

Life is born
Thoughts arise
Creativity spurts
Dreams envisioned
Passions pursued
In hope of dawn.
Yet night falls
Beween the dawns
Some dreams shatter
In the darkness unknown
While some see
The light of day!
And Life is bettered
Such is the circle of life
Flowing in a rhythm
Of its own making!
Every Life chalks it’s path in time
Arrives its meaning for itself
The journey is unparalleled
And uniquely carved.
Such is the very nature of life
And at every moment
One can’t help
But wonder…
Such is the wonder of life!

Your Circle




Who you are becoming

Has much to do with

Who you are being with.

You are bit of all

In between  the Influences

And betwixt the Confluences

Of all the people you meet & interact.




You create yourself 

Carving patterns of your life

With these experiences.

Negate not those who teach you

For learning comes

From all quarters.





Think of  your circle of  life

Pay heed to your circle

Keep it healthy & contribute with grace

Watch it closely and imbibe the good.

Make amends if needed

Rally in strength & power of the circle.

Understand your space in the circle

Choose you circle well!

WISDOM OF STILLNESS




I listened  to my heart
Every day
As it shares from within
And I write them out as words
Sometimes as verses
At times its measured
In moderation.
Its a zen moment
For there is clarity
In just a few words shared.


Then there are times

They flow like a river
A torrent in a current
Patterning  itself
In its own making
Words come through me
As if it needs to be spoken
Sharing the sensitivity
Of the moments at hand.
I listen simply with rapt attention
For in the slightest flutter
In every movement in the moments
Or the depth of silence
There is wisdom in the stillness.

On Constant Anger

Constant anger
Is but a telltale sign
Of never feeling good enough
About things and the self or others.
It is a way of shielding wounds
That simply have yet to heal.
Anger patterns itself
Quickly into unhealthy ways
Of abusing the self & others
Rooted in fear
In feelings of lack
Of love and worth.

A deeply seated emotion
Of feeling love is only conditional
Striving for a need…
A need for perfection
A need for invulnerability
A need to be right all the time
A need to never be wrong
Such a state of mind is exhausting
Families and friends
Pay the price of such a behaviour
Wounding the self and others.

Yes Anger too is a part of you
It comes from you
It is expressing
Itself seeking help
As it feels quite helpless
Though you may support not the anger
But suppress it never!
But try to hear the inner voice
Its saying something perhaps
About fear,hurt, loss & lack of love.

Numbing it down
With food and drinks
Is never the answer
Healing is a journey
In understanding
With empathy
Unearth the roots
By Self supportable
Sustainable ways
To recover from the pain
Once for all.

Reclaim the joy in your life’s journey
U owe it to yourself
For this is your one life
Choose to live it well!

Unshackled Souls



Cage not the heart

Of those who dream of the yonder

Beyond the clouds, over the hills

Far across the horizon their soul

belongs.

Nature: The Great Balancing Act!

Anything you want
You intend deeply
And it materializes
In one way or another.

Anything you lose
Stay aware
And it comes around
In form or another.



So trust, it comes to you
What to you is due
So grieve not, your losses
Recognize your true wealth.

It is the very nature of Nature
To be the great balancer
To know when to rise and fall.
To know when to give and take.
To maintain the equilibrium.

The ‘Now’ Matters!


This space between  the past and future

It could  be a moment , an instant  or a day..

Simply centering  without  distractions

It’s all in this here and now…

Energy  flows where the attention  is!


In this space of between  and betwixt

Is where there is no time

For it is irrelevant.

And what matters is this Now!

On Seeing

When you look at other people through a lens of compassion and understanding rather than judgment and jealousy, you are better able to see them for what they are—human beings.” ~ Unknown

The way we see the world

Changes our experiences

Lesser expectations

Greater contentment

Lesser assumptions & doubt

Greater trustfulness

Lesser hopelessness

Greater possibility

Lesser the complexity

Greater the clarity.
