Incidents Experience Impressions Life

In lifestyle on September 28, 2014 at 23:41

On reflection I find some thing in Life to be curious and puzzling.

 

Recently I went to meet two class mates of mine who studied with me from class 1 to SSLC  (+2 Now)

 

One is a Man and another is a lady.

 

 

He studied with me till I we completed the SSLC and she studied with us till Fourth standard.

 

Later she went Girls’ section in our school.

 

Those who are in touch with school friends, especially with whom they have bonded from early childhood will know the special bond with them despite time and distance, when they meet with.

 

Of course we have been in touch with each other for the past six years in Bangalore.

 

There was a heated argument between my friends as to till which class we studied together.

 

She declared that we studied together till 4 standard and my other friend claimed that we did not study in the same class/section at all.

 

The argument heated up and my friend’s’ husband joined the discussion and confirmed we studied together in the same class till fourth standard.

 

He also studied in the same school and three years senior to us.

 

They wanted me to mediate as I am reputed to have a good memory.

 

I told them,

 

” I can remember that we studied together till 4 class and boys were shifted to another section.

 

The confusing thing is that I remember my friend’s (woman in discussion) face and another girl, whose face I can not recollect(?), but know she was good-looking(!)”

 

This post is not about what went on with us friends on this issue.

 

But what happens to us and our Life’s experiences over a period of time.

 

I remember some one to be pretty without recollecting her face( my friend gave her name).

 

Similarly I remember some of the most painful moments in my Life like my mother’s death, first wife’s death,death of my brother’s grand child in its mother’s hand, which I took away from her hands to prevent my brother’s daughter feeling sad about the fact the child had died in her hands;

 

I recall my most pleasant moments in my career but not the worst problems.

 

Even the pain I recall has dimmed but at times I am overtaken by it.

 

But one thing is clear.

 

My reaction to these issues, now, is not very passionate .

 

They pass through my mind’s eye as  fleeting images.

 

I am not affected by them.

 

What is an incident becomes an experience when we react.

 

We become passionate, disturbed,anxious and worry so much as if Life would end there.

 

It does not seem to be so.

 

What has been an experience becomes nothing more than a fading memory.

 

I do not get involved, though some of these incidents appeared ,at that time, to affect my life radically.

 

On hindsight it does not seem so mentally.

 

Another curious fact is that most insignificant things get recalled but not what I thought was very important.

 

Like a game played on the street in childhood, a meal with a stranger in a Train, the hotel where I stayed in a town…..

 

Is Life all but a series of fleeting impressions?

 

Seems so, to me.

 

I shall be posing on what Hinduism and Buddhism say on this at the philosophical level.

 

History Incorrect Ancient Spark Plug Nano Technology

In History on January 5, 2014 at 23:08

With advanced Technologies, we are now confident that we can update and be certain about the History of Mankind and the World.

We have carbon Dating to determine the period of an artifact, Radio Telescopes which can peer into distant galaxies to find more about the Universe.

These very instruments are making us rethink what has been known to us as History on the origin of Life, appearance of Homo Sapiens and the History of Civilizations.

Ancient Manuscripts and legends speak of  things which they could not have had access to.

Indian Texts speak of Atomic blasts five thousand years ago,Artificial insemination, Flying Saucers, Airplanes,Travel to the Stars, these are found in the Indian texts.

They speak of electricity as well

Please read some of my posts on these subjects.

Find here below a list of anomalies, instances, objects,events which could not have taken place or they have no business to be there at all.according to or reading of History

1. Spark plugin a geode.

In 1930,owners of a Gift shop found an encrusted Fossil in California in 1930.

On cutting it open with a diamond cutter they found..a Spark Plug.

It was Carbon dated.

Its age..at least 500,000 years!

  • Ancient modern tools. While quarrying limestone in 1786, workers came to a bed of sand about 50 feet below ground level. In the layer of sand, however, they found the stumps of stone pillars and fragments of half-worked rock. Digging further, they found coins, the petrified wooden handles of hammers, and pieces of other petrified wooden tools. The sand in which the discovery was made was beneath a layer of limestone dated at 300 million years old.
  • Mysterious vase.

    The mysterious  Vase

  •  In June, 1851, Scientific American reprinted a report from the Boston Transcript about how a metallic vase, found in two parts, was dynamited out of solid rock 15 feet below the surface in Dorchester, Mass. The bell-shaped vase (see photo), measuring 4-1/2 inches high and 6-1/2 inches at the base, was composed of a zinc and silver alloy. On the sides were figures of flowers in bouquet arrangements, inlaid with pure silver. The estimated age of the rock out of which it came: 100,000 years.
  • Too-old screw.

    Ancient screw

    Million Year Old Screw

  •  In 1865, a two-inch metal screw was discovered in a piece of feldspar unearthed from the Abbey Mine in Treasure City, Nev. The screw had long ago oxidized, but its form – particularly the shape of its threads – could be clearly seen in the feldspar. The stone was calculated to be 21 million years in age.
  • Ancient nanotechnology. In 1991-1993, gold prospectors on the Narada river on the eastern side of the Ural mountains in Russia found unusual, mostly spiral-shaped objects, the smallest measuring about 1/10,000th of an inch! The objects are composed of copper and the rare metals tungsten and molybdenum. Tests showed the objects to be between 20,000 and 318,000 years old.

We come across extremes in Life,

 

Life Quotes.

Life QuotesLife Quotes.

Pleasure, Pain,

Good,Bad,

Hot, Cold,

Love ,Hatred,

Home, World,

Family Life, Renunciation,

How does one follow the Precepts?

An advice is can not be followed unless it is  experienced or we experience something similar.

Another tack is to understand by observing simple things in Life.

Rain flows as a River rolling down everything in its wake, not respecting anything.

It is predetermined, even that it is not, nor are we sure about,

As the things do not know why they are tumbled when being tumbled, nor the River that impels them, one rolls down Life.

As such, one need not be overawed by Great-men, much less condescending towards the weak and less gifted.

பெரியோரை வியத்தலும் இலமே;

சிறியோரை இகழ்தல் அதனினும் இலமே.”
We are solely responsible for our Life, be it Good Times  or Bad Times.
This accountability is the backbone of Hinduism and the Theory of Karma.
Of Course, we have limited Freedom, in that though we are free to choose a course of action, we can not determine the choices life offers or what impels us to choose a particular option.
None can insult you, demean you or elevate without your consent.
Atman is Your best friend and is Your worst enemy” Bhagavad Gita.
You are the Master of Your destiny.
தீதும், நன்றும், பிறர் தர வாரா;’
So are problems and solutions.
Hinduism is such a Religion that can say God is the Repository of Grief as well.
‘Dukkabukh,’ Repository of Grief-Vishnusahasranama.
Then why do we pray?
Because he gives you the strength, provides you with the tolls to tide over.
Dukka Sadanah’ Provides you with the avenues to combat the problems-Visnu Sahasranamam.
Therefore problems and solutions are with us.
“நோதலும், தணிதலும், அவற்றோர் அன்ன;”
This being happy or Sad is meaningless.
For even Death is not New!
“சாதலும் புதுவது அன்றே! வாழ்தல்”
So the whole world is Mine . All are my Friends.
யாதும் ஊரே,யாவரும் கேளிர்;’
‘Mara Ca Parvat Devi Pitha Devo Maheswarah,
Bhandavvah Siva Bhaktaasca,
Swadeso Bhuvath Thrayam’
Goddess Parvat is My Mother, Lord Siva is My Father,
Worshipers of Siva are my relatives,
Therefore the Whole World is Mine-Adi Sankaracharya.

யாதும் ஊரே ; யாவரும் கேளிர் ;


தீதும் நன்றும் பிறர்தர வாரா ;

நோதலும் தணிதலும் அவற்றோ ரன்ன ;

சாதலும் புதுவது அன்றே ; வாழ்தல்

இனிதுஎன மகிழ்ந்தன்றும் இலமே; முனிவின்,

இன்னா தென்றலும் இலமே; ‘மின்னொடு

வானம் தண்துளி தலைஇ, ஆனாது

கல்பொருது இரங்கும் மல்லற் பேர்யாற்று

நீர்வழிப் படூஉம் புணைபோல, ஆருயிர்

முறைவழிப் படூஉம்’ என்பது திறவோர்

காட்சியின் தெளிந்தனம் ஆகலின், மாட்சியின்

பெரியோரை வியத்தலும் இலமே;

சிறியோரை இகழ்தல் அதனினும் இலமே.

What Is Not Yours

In Random thoughts on April 23, 2013 at 10:28

I used to be fond of watches.

At one pint of time, as early as last year, I had about 28 wrist watches!

Now I lost interest in them.

I had a thought.

I have been acquiring things.

After a lapse of time, I lost interest.

I discard them.

They were mine for a time.

No body has taken them away from me.

They are still there.

But I feel they are not mine.

So is with everything in Life.

You have a Car ;after some time,you lose interest,in name they are yours ,but you do not enjoy it anymore.

In that sense it is not yours.

What is ours here?

The Ground we walk on?

Water,

The Sun,

The air we breathe?

Friends?

Wife?

Children?

Wealth?

Why go further?

Even Life is not ours.

We are Trustees..

Things are here for our temporary keeping.

We have no ownership.

We have the right to enjoy them,with the consequences.

Nothing more.
