“Why people seem to be unapproachable, is it because i think that they will ignore me or even say no in my face or is it my Ego that doesn’t let me reach”

Let Doomsday : End Inhumanity

Standard

People around the world will go mad, osho had one quoted, and its seems like all he said was very true .

People today live a very unreal life , a world of their own imagination where they want to fulfill their desires and needs as soon as they originate in them. No longer repression of desires is being followed as we live in an open world with open feelings followed by social media, technology and so much to display through PDE ( public display of emotions or affection ‘PDA’). But still there is a good lot of people living in closets, and life full of repressions and regressions that they carry on all their lives and have no means for catharsis.

With all the bursting and growing technological advancement and rapidity of life with all its exuberance and extravagance that has been brought by progress, I still crave for a world that had never moved so fast and changes that happened for good would never have happened so that the bad would have never come along  with it.

We exist in a world where we have created milestones of progress and advancement  in so many areas but have also digressed away from our roots. Had there been no weapons, no technology, no lust for materialism , i can still imagine, the world would have been far much better, as i support my view through this that having all this makes us suffer which is what is happening.

And its happening and people are actually becoming mad, doing monstrous acts, and blindly collecting things they desire but do not require. In light of so many criminal activities the world over, be it in Syrian attacks, Connecticut massacre and the recent Delhi gang rape case, there is no ending to the brutality and violence that is happening in every form and in almost every country.

The crime largely stems from sex and aggression, and thus it transforms into crimes that accompany , hatred, assault,  massacre, rapes physical and mental torture, abuse and other big war crimes. No longer we can acknowledged the ability of peaceful talks taking place to transform the criminal mindsets.  Its a thing of past today, no longer there is fear among the people who toy these criminal thoughts and covert them into their play.

The need is to impose strict control in form of tight laws, that are least flexible and observance these laws, that let fear set in the hearts of every individual who would have no chance other than to run his mind a million times before he desires to commit such acts of violence and abuse upon the innocent victims be it children, women and men . The only way to get some peace at least into some corners of the world is through diligent practice of brutal punishment so that committing crime becomes as fatal as driving a break less vehicle .

Quite similarly the Arabic Nation have much powerful punishment for different criminal acts, like capital punishment for rape and murder as compared to other countries where it follows fine or imprisonment for a fixed period of time. such punishments never take the evil out of the criminals rather it strengthens their urge to avenge themselves on being let out, nor do they transform for any good , it happens in least cases. the best way to punishment is to see the gravity of crime that leads to physical and mental damage upon the victim in any form and the investigations and punishment should be speedily done so that it does not increase the pain and agony of the victims who have suffered already.

The heartfelt need is not just talk , report, support, debate, discuss or protest rather something concrete in form of laws and actions. moreover the people all round the world who feel such emotions trouble them and it may give rise to criminal actions should open up and talk about it to psychologists or they can  follow spiritual Gurus or practice meditation themselves. One must know that Hoarding of bad karma will trigger a chain of more bad karma and accumulates, where the responsible person alone has to bear the consequences time and again and if its not completed in one birth , he /she has to take several births to face the consequences of the karmic actions, as they cannot be compensated with the good karma .

Follow the righteous path of goodness and Justice always and always be hopeful and positive about life, You an do it all if you are still living and seeing all happening . its time to change the time is now, and as you come to know of it start practicing doing good karma .

Krishna : Man for Every Yuga

Standard

Krishna and Radha with gopiyas.

 

I was reading this book by Osho, that my fiance mailed me to read, where he talks about the significance teaching and philosophy given by Krishna.

So far i have read only 8 pages and am thankful to him for the great book.

Osho is a magnanimous being , he cannot be touched , talked or thought about casually just like Buddha, Krishna and Shiva for his knowledge and enlightened ness.  He speaks about Krishna is a man meant to be understood and his philosophies and lessons should be understood and applied by all. But its unfortunate on our part that we can never understand and realize that Krishna is man for all seasons and yuga’s , and we till today haven not been able to understand the true meaning and essence of his teaching in the Geeta and Bhagwad.

Osho has been true in saying that we only differentiate and adapt to him at our own level where Krishna in Bhagwad is dancing and singing whereas Krishna in Geeta is talking about Dharma, Karma and significance of war. If we believe in good ness and gaiety in life we will bound to agree with the Krishna in Bhagwad and understand him at our own level again overlooking his totality where he dances and sing s with women and conveys that Body and soul is one and sex can only lead to celibacy not the suppression of any feelings of the soul or body.

on the other hand In geeta he aptly conveys how the war of Mahabharata , and restoration of dharma is the karma and must be followed as it is. He talks about violence and non violence as two sides of the same coin and that thinking about violence is when someone thinks he can kill its materialistic, and the one who thinks he will practice non violence and would not kill anyone is also a materialist . And one thing is common among the violence and non violence believers that “someone can be killed” therefore Krishna rejects both and accepts the immortality of the soul where life and death is materialistic and nothing lives or dies.

This thought above is very spiritual but an eye opener to believe in Krishna and the lesson he wishes to give  us , though we are least ready to understand or accept, forget adopting to it. Spirituality accepts wholeness of life it accepts everything be it love, sex, war , devotion or any other thing.

It is relevant because this age is age of lies, suppression, competition, repression, struggle and suffering and a never ending fight , which is why today the study of Krishna’s teachings become more important as he shows us the way to play our part in this life leela (play )where its only a role we must understand and that we must overcome and stand above this role to conquer these inimical forces that influence us.

The best part osho explains about Krishna is the topic that we are deprived, devoid, suppressed, and asked to repress all out lives which is sex. He has rightly explored the theme and made it understandable for us to know that we must be familiar and make friends with sex not look at it as our enemy, the logic behind this is that we cannot understand our enemies but we can understand our friends very well and have scope to change them, this is true and can be explored further because many of us suppress our urges and carnal instincts, the more we put them back the more we think about them. the more we think the more we are distracted , and again its a wide spread theme to think of it a sin and thus thought in the same way since we were adolescents .

Krishna is the only one who has believed and accepted life in its totality , he never became a saint, lived in celibacy , he was god in true sense , a complete whole, a complete taker of life as it is. he never turned away from the miseries or suffering wars or violence good or evil , he took it as it was and gave the most unimaginable ways to conquer over them and live through them .

And as we are..

we are born to be attracted by the things which are meant not to be disclosed , the opposite always attracts, but we fear so much about the other side that we always wish to cling to all the good things and do away with the bad , dark, evil, pain, etc. But we fail to realize that even this is part of our existence and we need to look into it deeply, and when we come across or face them we feel dilemma, pain, conflict and misery because we are not ready to give up on the pleasantness and goodness of life.

This is what Krishna wants us to do, to believe in whole life to accept the opposites and lead a true life not in fragments or portions where we accept one thing and deny the other rather we must learn to accept the other part as well.

Krishna has a remarkable brilliance and great relevance for every generation of any yuga. we must explore him greatly through his teachings and decipher the inner meaning rather than the outer words only through Bhaghwad or the geeta.
