Aug 24th 2013 – loved the play – HTS Giraffe @ RB on Aug 24th  – Witty Satirification – i reviewed  it @The Hindu as satirical questionification ,  – (my first ever review to get published  ,surprise surprise ?!?! )Many points worth pondering ……..Vanilla urbanisation , people on blind dates conversing about how many friends / albums they have on Social Networks , the decline of free thinking etc.etc. – worth introspecting .

Review

JS @ RamaKrishna Math ……… Spiritual / philosophical gems explained by monks . Excerpts :

Can one really understand / get 2 know reality unless one knows god ?

Death moves with us as our shadow.

The ‘I’ /Ego is like a bullock tied to a tree – just keeps going round and round.

He who hides himself best , accomplishes the most – after  all ,  the Lord is hidden.

Conquer yourself and the whole world is yours.

Meditation is like taking bath in the holy waters of the mind.

IFM -Nov 25, 2012 –   excerpts from the speeches

MOVING TOWARDS MATERIALISM-BASED SOCIETY WILL MAKE US EXTINCT

  • KEEPING A STRONGHOLD ON SPIRITUALITY IS THE ONLY WAY
  • IN THE WEST PRIESTS TRACE THEIR ANCESTRY TO KINGS  – IN INDIA KINGS USED TO TRACE THEIR ANCESTRY TO SEMI-NAKED SAGES ( does it mean real royalty is simplicity ????  )
  • desires accumulate – build up slowly and eliminate dharma from the mind
  • we are guided by what we see
  • deep study of upanishads and the gita – to live in the world of materialism
  • PERSONALITY UNFOLDING OR DEVELOPMENT CANNOT BE DONE UNLESS CONNECTED TO A HIGHER POTENTIAL – THE MONKS TODAY
  • shankar bhashyam
  • GANDHIJI ,RAMANA MAHRSHI , LB SHASTRI DID NOT PREACH DHARMA  THEY LIVED IT
  • RAMAKRISHNA PARAMHAMSA TREATED IRON , MONEY AND MUD EQUALLY
  • ACC TO UPANISHADS – UNLESS WE REDUCE / ELIMINATE DESIRES WE CANNOT LIVE A LIFE OF DHARMA
  • THERE HAS BEEN A TREMENDOUS INCREASE IN KAMAS – DESIRES NOW

DHARMA – NOTHING BUT COMMON SENSE
