disciple of life.

“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)

Tao Te Ching: Chapter :16 : Decay and Renewal

Empty your mind of all thoughts.
Let your heart be at peace.
Watch the turmoil of beings,
but contemplate their return.

Each separate being in the universe
returns to the common source.
Returning to the source is serenity.

If you don’t realize the source,
you stumble in confusion and sorrow.
When you realize where you come from,
you naturally become tolerant,
disinterested, amused,
kindhearted as a grandmother,
dignified as a king.

Immersed in the wonder of the Tao,
you can deal with whatever life brings you,
and when death comes, you are ready.

Tao Te Ching: Chapter :16 : Decay and Renewal  : ram0ram wisdom note

Mind ‘ is the energy bridge between right and left brain, soul and body , subjective and objective, emotional intelligence and logical intelligence , space and time, vertical dimension (beyond time) and horizontal dimension (with in time ) ,positive and negative……

there is a great epic story Ramayana…..and last fight between Lord Rama and Demon Ramana ( mind of Rama ) normally prounced as Ravana……Ramana has ten heads ….each representing our ten senses…..now Lord Rama cuts one head ….instantly another head crop up…..people fight to work or fulfill one desire …another crop up and it goes on……

finally Lord Rama been asked to target the naval in the stomach where the AMRIT or eternity is hiding …and done so ….the demon become silent.

this is a spiritual and scientific story of atom and at OM … 

where body or electron center in left brain so when confused one always hold head…….

when soul or proton center in heart so a emotional person keeps one’s hand on heart……as women natural inclination towards right emotional brain….that is the reason we say they think from heart rather than head…..

when one centers in naval ….like the nucleus in atom …and see children breathing from naval….the consciousness centering there the oneness happens and body, mind, soul, spirit all disappears and what remains is SAT CHIT ANAND ….. eternal happiness the taste of God.

so a masculine mind centers in head…..

a feminine mind centers in heart…….. 

a neutral mind like innocent child centers in naval…..

be a child inside…. whether women or men outside….

this return is peaceful….it is the flow of nature……the continue cycle of creation and destruction in time ……. witness this remaining in the center with source is enlightenment…

Harmony with nature or body is to be with our self or with our soul….. 

harmony with our self is to be harmony of divine self ……the source …

so Lao Tzu is so divine and wise could explain in few words which we may not explain in whole lot of books …..

Who accepts nature’s flow becomes all-cherishing;
Being all-cherishing he becomes impartial;
Being impartial he becomes magnanimous;
Being magnanimous he becomes natural;
Being natural he becomes one with the Way;
Being one with the Way he becomes immortal:
Though his body will decay, the Way will not.

the way is tao ……

everywhere and nowhere for enlightened soul it is now here …

to remain in now is total freedom …..

talk without talking

~ Those who know don’t talk…those who talk don’t know ~
Lao Tzu
Tao Te Ching ~
Good and God’s morning …..
date to update this page …
there is no way to tell absolute truth or untruth …….
it depends on the level of inner silence of the listener or reader to process the essence so a same quote can be translated into different ways and meaning by different persons according to their understanding ……
see some example below …
‘She who knows does not speak. She who speaks does not know . – Translated by Charles Muller Revised, July 1997.• ‘Those who know the natural way have no need of boasting, whilst those who know but little, may be heard most frequently; thus, the sage says little, if anything at all. – Translated by Stan Rosenthal, UK. .

• ‘Who understands does not preach; Who preaches does not understand. – The GNL Tao Te Ching Copyright © 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995 Peter A. Merel.

• ‘Those who know don’t talk. Those who talk don’t know. – Translated by S. Mitchell.

• ‘He who knows does not speak; He who speaks does not know. – Translated by Lin Yutang; 1976.

but this quote raise questions on the saying of all enlightened masters in last few centuries who spoke and spoke in length on truth , enlightenment ,and God ….

the picture in the article is known in Indian language Hindi is Swadarshan Chakra or Sudrashna Chakra and depicted only in the upper hand of Lord Vishnu which means cosmic consciousness …..

and also in the hands of Lord Krishna ….who at one point in Holy Gita explains by saying …..

that know in action the non action and in non action the action ….

to explain it easily let us imagine car and a driver …… car as our body and driver as our soul ….. to move car we gear the car but driver can be in neutral gear and static or in silence …… so it is action and non action together …..

like to write this article I have geared my brain and fingers to type on my computer but inside the writer is in neutral silence ……

witnessing the action and non action together is yoga of body and soul and simplest way to mirror our original face ……mirroring the original face is SUDARSHNA CHAKRA….

so when Lao tzu say ….those who know do not talk and those who talk does not know ……means those who talk without inner silence which is state of no ego does not know…… 

when person in absolute inner silence remains in neutral gear inside yet gears the body to talk is talking without talking …..eating without eating ….walking without walking …..the path of no ego …..

and most of the enlightened masters walk and walked on the path of no ego…..

path of no ego is time and timelessness together …..

love all

journey of creative enlightenment

one day In 1983 …..a quest became intense to know who I am ? …. and was totally ignorant about any religious philosophy or guru or guide except my mother who as a mother of ten children and a simple human being asked me to keep trust in God ….. but for a person to get all the answers for the question was looking impossible …..

but one day by chance , by grace , a text appeared ….. the source I do not know but as a good steno wrote what appeared ….. it normally takes 15 minutes to read all four chapters but to understand it took me 25 years …… was never keen to publish……

.

but inspiration from divine grace Goswami  Sushil Ji Maharaj (Unique blend of choreographer, theaterist and spiritual guru ) resulted into launch of  book ” OWN ZERO ” in presence of spiritual dignitaries from all religions and a live performance of spiritual musical “ANANT YATRA ” took place on 1 April 2009 in KAMANI AUDITORIUM at NEW DELHI amongst the distinguished audience from all walks of life …..to watch Anant Yatra on you tube link is here ….   

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xt_aV0-KR-A&list=UU37iZIrwCqim55UtPlTJ-ew&index=7&feature=plcp

later this book OWN ZERO was presented to President of India on 29 July 2009

by  chance now  I  have a lot of  blogs ,   thanks  to  my  grand – daughter Kashvi, 5 yrs now , it  is  her  wisdom ,   I  am  learning  computer,   get  inspired  by lots of wisdom  on  net  to  add  my ,  a b c d and few words of silence…..

 Great Scientist Albert Einstein devoted almost last 30 thirty years to arrive at a conclusion that entire cosmos is governed by a common law…..this thought did not get much light but paved a foundation for Quantum physics and theory of every thing……this common law which governs the entire cosmos is referred in this article as religion or Dharma 

Atom is the signature of God….as energy equation of atom is zero so is of entire cosmos…..cosmos is dance of zero……mathematics of God.

chapter 1 = Minus = Body in time
chapter 2 = Plus = soul beyond time
chapter 3 = Multiplication = dance of time in timelessness
chapter 4 = Division = zero with zero = zero

my request for all of you to read chapters in serial sequence …. I must have shared this book with thousands of people in all walks of life ….with a commitment from them if they like …..they will share it further …..with love and gratitude …..

ram0ram

love all.

” Own Zero “

Chapter 1 = Minus = Body in time

Read these thoughts which are your own if you agree, throw these thoughts which are mine if you disagree .

All these thoughts are natural, your own, from your own world, from you only. You have all the rights and liberty to implement your thoughts in your life, you are your own sun and ray of this universe .If any thing has to be truth , it has to be universal truth .

If it is true for human beings , it must be true for everything which exists like sun , moon , tree , birds , stars , car , road , music , and everything what so ever you can think .

Read all these thoughts with love .

To explain love by example of coin , like coin has head , tail and thin edge , Desire is like coin head , hate is like coin tail , thin edge is love , where no desire , no hate .

Love is your inner wealth, seed of which you bring in your closed hands to plant in this world to make it a tree of happiness.

Can you see your own image without mirror?

Even I cannot see my own image without mirror, so thing which is truth for you is truth for me also.

I am the creator of nature .

Nature is my image .

Nature is the cosmic world .

I always exist , nature creates and destroys itself .

I am you , nature is your body .

I am very simple , nature is very complex .

Like I am inside like I am outside.

I can see myself through you , you are my medium , and body is your medium

I am everything known or everything unknown .

I want to see myself through you , life is a chance for the ray to know sun .

I am eternal sound existing in everything .

Life is a rare opportunity for you to know me through the medium of body to become me .

Your body is your guru because of this only you can know me .

I want to be happy to see my clean image of creation for that I give everything a mirror inside and the possibility for every one of you to keep this mirror clean and when mirror is clean , I am with you .

I am easy to understand and complex to explain .

Imagine you all are sitting in a dark room where electric current , its fittings and bulbs are there , only thing you do not know is switch .

Sitting in darkness you can either believe there is current or believe there is no current , but if you search and find this switch , make it on and if light comes , you will know there is current otherwise if light does not come then either there is no current or bulb is fuse , so one thing never believe , try to know .

All your life you are going from wall to wall in the room to find out to the switch or may get shock which is another way to know the current but it happens mostly when it is your last effort to find the switch but then it is too late .

Most of you spend all your life to find this switch which is happiness or say how the current is connected with the medium .

As it is difficult for you to see your back except a circus person with rubber like flexible body likewise it is difficult to know your own self .

The easiest way will be to find a mirror and mirror like religion to see your own self .

In certain parts of earth many holy people , the people with love like Buddha , Christ , Mohamed , Mahavira , Krishna and many thousand others with the passage of time , who could know themselves tried to give a light which anybody could use in darkness to find this switch ( happiness ) and if switch could be found and light comes in life , you will know current is there.

Since the light given by these holy people could bring light in darkness , people started following them .

These holy people and their close associates kept giving light to people for simple love only.

Chapter 2 = Plus = soul beyond time

Do you ever go to your power house from where your electricity is coming ?possibly no so there is no need for you to know where is your power house , as you are alive so I am with you or say you get current in your room that is enough.What will you need for light ?Mostly you will say , 1. electric current which is I am. 2 . electric line which is life 3. electric bulb which is body or medium for current. 4 . electric switch which is religion or the way current is connected with bulb.The voltage of the line and voltage of medium has to be same to have proper light. Should you consider what is your inner line and what is your outer medium?As a child you all bring love in your closed hands which is universal truth and invaluable wealth I give to every creature .

Your body is the outer medium or bulb , the duty of the bulb is to give light means duty is your outer medium , so to have proper light you must have balance between inner and outer mediums like love your duties which means you must do all the works of life with love.

Like love your body means neither give body comforts or discomforts,neither work too much or too little . The strings of life should neither be too tight nor too loose to have proper music .

Love your works means do all your duties without expecting or not expecting or regardless of fruits . this is the key for balance of mind.

Never destroy any medium or any body because through this only you can be connected with line to have light to know me . For me you, tree,………and bird has no difference . If you destroy anything without any natural reasons, you destroy yourself that means observe …………. non-violence.

For your natural needs you are creator and destroyer yourself.

Destroying anybody you are destroying your opportunity to know me.

If you destroy anything without reasons, anything will also destroy you without reasons.

Normally you need the same line for even 50 watt bulb to 1000 watt bulb or so the capacity to work may be different but line for all the bulbs is same , if bulb thinks it is shining itself and power house puts off the current means your body is simply a medium the current is mine. Your duty is to give light to others whenever you will outshine other bulbs, you will fuse yourself.

The coloured bulbs cannot colour the current.

Either people believe there is current or people do not believe there is current. Knowing the current is religion , knowing the use of current is science, Believing…. and not believing ………both are philosophies.

All the philosophies after the holy people were made to benefit the common humans and humanity to make life beautiful and to communicate different findings of nature ( Science ) , the medium of philosophies was used looking to that particular time, country , people, geographical conditions and the situations existing in those particular areas.

You can find out from the following examples that most of the rituals in all the existing philosophies were practical solutions of those situations in that particular time.

Imagine civilizations in sand desert before 1000 years in hot climatic conditions ….vast sea of sand all around, no water …..,no trees…………,no rivers,…….. a person dies…….. . For disposal of dead body suggest a way……….

One of the possible scientific way is to dig sand which is easy and put it inside the ground and put a respect stone above ground so no body should dig there again like Islamic culture and some more cultures. Other possible scientific way is to put dead body on a high tower for natural disintegration to happen like Zoroastrian culture.

Now imagine civilizations in tropical and subtropical climatic conditions in mountains and near rivers plains before thousands of years plenty of trees and water rivers so possible scientific way could be to burn dead bodies or throw the bodies in rivers after observing last rites like Indian Hinduism culture and some more cultures with mixed scientific climatic requirements.

Now imagine civilizations in the extreme cold conditions year around and in partial cold and rain conditions before thousands of years with plenty of trees and rivers and without also so one of the possible scientific way could be to have wooden coffins , put the dead body inside observing last rites and put inside the ground and a respect stone above ground so no body should dig there again like Christian culture and some more cultures.

So try to analyse every rituals which were basic needs of that particular time and possible medium of communications to spread new findings of nature (science ) was only through these philosophies which were named as religion or say were made to provide better way of life.

Religion in short is like sea where all the rivers of different philosophies could merge to have same level.

Science is to know nature, religion is to know me.

Science and religion are two ends of one chain only.

Nature is my reflection.

Science is a search of reflection. Religion is a search of me.

Religion is to know your inner cosmos. science is to know your outer cosmos.

Chapter 3 = Multiplication = dance of time in timelessness

During the journey someone….. inquired……..how can I become good human after listening from you that ”goodness is God ” ?

Answered by following four simple directions similar to the instructions one gives to a car driver which are normally these……. 1,keep the car clean from outside …. 2. keep it even more clean inside. 3. drive carefully … 4. give fellow passengers a comfortable journey.

Similar instructions we all get in our nature when we get life in our body or car from the creator of nature who is simple to understand. Follow the instructions and we will find happiness in our journey.

So 1. keep the body clean from outside or healthy, 2. keep it clean from inside or sensitive,3. drive carefully means do not hurt any body in any way. 4. give fellow passengers good journey means take care of your family, society, and nature.

When the driver is good, driver need not worry about the owner, the owner will worry about the driver . we become good driver , the creator will always remain with us.

Our body is like a car , we all are driver of car . Creator is sitting with us inside , to keep car clean we travel comfortably between life and death of body, to keep drive clean creator comes closer.

Life is a rare opportunity for driver to come closer to creator to become mirror of creator.

car music is within the car only.

Distance has no meaning , meaning is how we cover it.

when our outer world is beautiful we are model , when our inner world is beautiful we are total.

To know religion and name it is life, to ignore religion and name it is death.

Philosophy is an influence of one on other, religion is an experience of one with other.

Philosophy is predictions in darkness about brightness, religion is brightness within darkness.

Wandering with goal is philosophy, wandering without goal is religion.

Tape recorder is religion, which can play different cassettes of philosophies.

Smile is religion, words are philosophies .

In a chain every loop is complete chain in itself, in our life everyday is a complete life in itself.

If we live naturally, we will die naturally.

If we live naturally, we will die naturally.

To do your work with love is religion.

Love is very individual.

Love is an expression without expressed.

as the co passenger destination was approaching wanted to thanks for the quality of conversations we exchanged about the creator. passenger says I am curious to know that do you know the creator ? replied that as a driver one cannot say I do not know the owner but at the same time one do not know much also so will say I know that I do not know. but tell you what I listened from creator.

1. To know me you do not require passport of nationality, visa of philosophies, ticket of any class except identity with natural love .

2. Love is my nature, and nature is my love , love my nature, you love me.

3. To be with nature is to be with yourself, to be yourself is to be oneself, to be with oneself is to be with myself.

4. Any name, work or rest which brings peace are the names of me only.

5. Either you know yourself or you know myself, simply do your duties with love , myself will know yourself.

6. To do all the duties of life with love is to know me.

7 .Name has no meaning in love.

8. I am beyond every known and unknown dimensions but within love of no dimension,

All the religion which exists in the name of religion are philosophies, natural love which exists without name is religion.

Love is universal truth.

Chapter 4 = Division = zero with zero = zero

When you wash your garments, the washing method will depend upon the kind of cloth and the available means of washing , you may choose soap, detergent, dry cleaning or even stone wash .

Soap method is where you rub soap on the garments soaked in water.

Liquid detergent or powder method is where you dissolve it in water and immerse the garments.

Dry cleaning is where you will pay and garments are cleaned by others.

Stone wash is you do not need soap or detergent , you beat severely your garments on stone immersing it into water.

Now tell me when you wash the cloth, where is the whiteness ?

To be precise whiteness is within the garment only, washing only takes away the dirt.

After washing the garments you have to rinse it with more water to clean the garments from both dirt and soap or to say from washing methods. Now the water which has gone into deep pores of garments has to go through heat or sunshine and once whiteness starts coming then it will slowly spread in the complete garment.

The same way to know me you will have to wash dirt accumulated on yourself by means of any suitable method you like but one must understand completely that in all washing methods you need water which is natural love and that too bucketful, otherwise you will never be able to clean yourself without love it is not possible to know me.

Most of the people remains with the fragrance of soap which is like enchanting or in liquid detergent which like meditation or in dry cleaning which is like charity or in stone washing which is like renouncing the world.

Whiteness or happiness can come in you provided any suitable method is employed with love otherwise these methods will add more dirt on yourself.

Love is the single method which can clean yourself without any washing techniques because once you will wash the untruth which was on your mirror only thing you will realize will be that you yourself are whiteness or to say happiness is your nature and a kind of whiteness which can never get dirty. and this is the state which many people call natural state.

After applying the washing method with water you have to rinse the garments with more water to remove dirt as well as washing method or to say unlearn about the knowledge of washing.

Now spreading the cloth in sun means that even your love has to go through fire and still trust in yourself can make you myself. this time the whiteness which is absolute happiness will come and you will remain happy for ever.

Knowing untruth as untruth is truth, knowing dirt as dirt is whiteness.

You can never search or loose me , I am with you always.

People are searching me in telephone directories not knowing to lift the receiver to hear dial tone which is I am.

Different people know me by different names I know different people with same name.

Like television if your screen is clean , you can always see me, I am available on all the channels.

Name has no meaning and meaning has no name.

Birth is like start of the film , death is like end of the film , life is to watch the film to know your role and my part.

when you know me, do not criticize anybody. you will criticize anybody due to ignorance , anybody will react due to ignorance .

knowing 26 alphabets of English you can express yourself without an end.

Since all languages comes out of silence so you can communicate with me in any language or in silence.

Eternity is dancing on eternity like football.

Everything has an eternal space inside and outside.

With counted ten numbers you can imagine uncountable numbers .

Numbers are additions of one into one, zero is subtraction of one from one . Once zero always zero even after applying all mathematical calculations.

“Zero is religion where all numbers are lost”

Tao Te Ching: Chapter 15 : Enlightenment

Tao Te Ching: Chapter 15 : Enlightenment 

The ancient followers of Tao: were so wise, so subtle, so profound, with
so much deep understanding that they were misunderstood on surface….

to be understood…..They must therefore be described with symptoms ..

Cautious……. like crossing a stream in mid-winter;

observant …….like moving in fear through hostile land;

modest …….retiring like ice beginning to melt;

dignified……..like an honored guest; 

genuine ……..like natural, untouched wood; 

receptive ……….like an inviting, open valley;

friendly…….. like muddied water, freely mixing.

Who can make sense of a world like cloudy water?

Left alone and still, it becomes clear. 

Should this stillness be maintained? 

Moving hastily will surely cloud it again.

How then can one move and not become clouded? 

Accept Tao and achieve without being selfish; 
being unselfish one endures the world’s wear,
and needs no change of pace.

Tao Te Ching: Chapter 15 : Enlightenment : ram0ram wisdom noteWhat is enlightenment ? can a blind understand a color just with the words ?……words are simply mind translations of its experimental knowledge and for a effective communication the experimental knowledge is necessary …….

Enlightenment is not an experience that one already has a reference for………
and so a word description is not likely to be meaningful enough to convey an understanding……

The best we can do in explaining enlightenment in everyday language is to accurately give words to the experience…..

and that exactly Lao Tzu has done in this chapter ……

Enlightenment is sacred and beyond thought, idea, notion, perception, association, memory, intention or desire but experience of timeless in time dance ….. 

In India we give it a name MAHARASA …. means every soul mirrors God with in and that is the awareness …..and awareness is to live in dance of timeless in time …..

MAHARASA Dance is symbol of enlightenment in India like Chinese symbol of yin and yang ……where body and soul dance in harmony …..

this is inner silence , peace and eternal happiness ….. this in my view is enlightenment 

love all.

Tao Te Ching: Chapter 15 : Enlightenment The ancient Masters were profound and subtle.
Their wisdom was unfathomable.
There is no way to describe it;
all we can describe is their appearance.They were careful
as someone crossing an iced-over stream.
Alert as a warrior in enemy territory.
Courteous as a guest.
Fluid as melting ice.
Shapable as a block of wood.
Receptive as a valley.
Clear as a glass of water.Do you have the patience to wait
till your mud settles and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving
till the right action arises by itself?

The Master doesn’t seek fulfillment.
Not seeking, not expecting,
she is present, and can welcome all things.
