Disciple of Life

ram H singhal

“Human are born soft and supple;

dead they are stiff and hard.

Plants are born tender and pliant;

dead, they are brittle and dry.

Thus whoever is stiff

and

inflexible

is a disciple of death.

Whoever is soft

and

yielding

is a disciple of life.

The hard and stiff will be broken.

The soft and supple will prevail.”

Lao Tzu( 570 – 490 BC )

Love All.

The one who understands the power of love has achieved wisdom, and wisdom may not be measured by the books one reads.

Kabir’s poetry is exceptionally beautiful, deep, direct and candid. The teachings behind his words are conveyed quietly but impactfully, without losing their sweetness or freshness.

Over the ages, the followers of Kabir and the lovers of his enchanting poetry have memorized, pondered and performed his couplets to seek spiritual awakening. He shared his knowledge with all – regardless of the faith or caste of his listeners and followers.

Love All.

Soldiers of Humanity

ram H singhal

Once, a division of the Japanese army was engaged in a sham battle, and some of the officers found it necessary to make their headquarters in Gasan’s temple.

Gasan told his cook: “Let the officers have only the same simple fare we eat.”

This made the army men angry , as they were used to very deferential treatment.

One came to Gasan and said: “Who do you think we are?

We are soldiers, sacrificing our lives for our country.

Why don’t you treat us accordingly?”

Gasan answered sternly: “Who do you think we are?

We are Soldiers of Humanity, aiming to save all sentient beings .”

Love All.
