“Namo Arihantanam: – I bow to the enlightened souls
Namo Siddhanam: – I bow to the liberated souls
Namo Ayariyanam: – I bow to religious leaders
Namo Uvajjayanam: – I bow to religious teachers
Namo Loe Savva Sahunam: – I bow to all monks of the world
Eso Panch Namukkaro:   – These five salutations are capable of
Savva Pava Panasano:    destroying all the sins and this is
Mangalancha Savvesin:    the first happiness among all forms
Padhamam Havai Mangalam:   of happiness”

Prayer of all Jains living all over the world-noble and great
Any prayer is Divine and appealing to the Omnipotent to grant!

India, the land of sanctity and holiness,
Gave birth to a chain of seers and saints of great virtues
A link in the chain is Mahavira-twenty fourth
Jain Thirthankara – Vardhamana,-the last and great!!

Though  born in a family royal, left at thirty
And for years twelve pursued  spirituality!
Meditation intense and penance very severe
Made him omniscient became a kevali-austere!

Non-injury, truth, non-stealing, chastity and sure
Non-attachment elevates quality of life pure!
Mahaveera spread the message for years thirty
Gautama Swami compiled the teachings quite swiftly!

Oh! My Lord! Let me not do any harm even to germs
Let me finish my dinner early,-avoiding harm to worms
No harm to humans, animals and birds- any living being
Grant me moksha allowing no karmas accumulating!

Jains a great set of pious and peaceful Indians
Serving the cause of Motherland India- Bharath
Mahaveera attaining moksha-liberated soul
At his age seventy two-golden birth and samadhi!

ENVIUS THOUGHTS- A STOCK TAKING!

VIEWER'S VIEW ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS Part 22 – Envius Thoughts

Of late there has been an increasing feeling in me that this Blog is losing its sheen! May be ill founded or well founded!The Blog is today in its 1896th day and 1935th post. I consider my ENVIUS THOUGHTS as apple of my eyes! I do think quite a lot to make the Blog as  interesting for the viewers as possible. I am able to feel my inadequacies in maintaining the Blog with an overall view score of more than 2,40,000 as of now from more than 200 countries in the world.

For what it is worth,here is a list of countries and the respective number o0f views from them:

When I look at this list of countries, I feel as if I have visited these countries! To be very plain and frank, I have not stepped out of the Indian soil even a foot  for a minute!!!!l

Sitting at a 12 X 10 room with my computer table and a small library, what I have been writing in the last 1895 days, what is surprising to me is the number of views and the number of countries!

Well as for the contents, there used to be a story on every Sunday right from 25th February 2015- the launch of the Blog till this day which I have christened as SUNDAY STORY and the rest of the days _Monday to Saturday- supposed to be a poem dealing with the significance of the day if any or any of my poems.

Of interest to  my esteemed viewers (as I learn from  responses) translations of Thirukkural- the Tamil magnum opus_, Mahakavi Subrahmanya Barathiyar’s  poems including some of his epics like cuckoos song, Panchali Sabadam, Ramana’s work etc. had their own attractions for them.

Another aspect of the Blog is the responses of some of the regular viewers, expressed in their own way. I do consolidate and post  as a Sunday Story. Leading is the daily responses of my erstwhile colleague in Life Insurance Corporation of India which I refer to as my ALMA MATER where I learnt the art and science of life and living- Mr OKR Sivagnanam from Periyar District “VIEWERS VIEW ON ENVIUS THOUGHTS”  Part 27 posted last Sunday.

A good friend of mine, regular viewer and former colleague by name A.Ramakrishnan, reads and makes a review of the posts in the form of an AUDIO!!!Very enjoyable.

I schedule the Blog Posts to morning FOUR on all days and immediately on published , I send a GOOD Morning message where I refer to the day’s post and send the same to all my WHATS APP friends around 200, sharing in TWITTER, FACE BOOK, PINTEREST, TUMBLER, LINKED IN and WHATS APP, I share with my co bloggers through  BLOGGERS MEET UP and individually  face book friends on line at that time between 4 and 5 in the morning. I do get a feeling that some of them wait for my message at that point of time as when delayed there will be inquiries through phone!

A word about the pictures on each day that go with the post. Many appreciate the appropriate pictures that are seen with each day’s post. I resort to my GOOGLE GURU  for guidance on many aspects!

This Blogging has earned me a place of honor from the World Records University based at UK- in the National Book of Records, Asia Pacific Book of Records and offer of an honorary Doctorate!!!

In spite of all these positive aspects,  I have a feeling of my esteemed viewers getting tired. In a weak moment I thought of a valedictory for the Blog on 2000th day or 2000th post. Let me see as a few more days are to go before that.

With this let me say good bye to you and we shall meet tomorrow  morning . as usual. Bye!

SHIVAJI’S MEMORIAL DAY 3rd April.

Shivaji - Alchetron, The Free Social Encyclopedia

Great kings, valorous emperors, wise Ministers, wonderful scholars
My Mother India that is Bharath has given to us with honors
To keep the flag of a great country high through the ages
Wisdom and valor incarnate including preceptors, saints and sages!

Indian states from the days of yore contribute to its culture great
Roots of our culture and civilization lies in this- a spate
Of great and noble thoughts, words and deeds sustain our greatness
And will go on for millions of years to the gains of posterity.

Maratha Emperor Shivaji was one in this list of honor
Died this day third April in  sixteen hundred and Seventy Nine
Revered even today referred as Shivaji Maharaj
We pay our respects and seek his grace for our progress.

Merciful Motherland

MERCIFUL MOTHERLAND – Envius Thoughts

 

Oh! My great country, India that is Bharath
Blessed with hills and dales, sky and earth
Strewn with streams and rivers, springs and lakes
Feeding lakhs of acres of arid land
In friendly climate and unfriendly weather
Vast stretch of Earth with different soils – a feather
Giving birth to apple orchards and mango groves
Grape gardens and banana groves
Pulses and cereals, paddy and wheat
Ever green fields up to horizon a treat!

On the hills and in the plains with dense forests
Crores of humans and millions of animals to rest
Getting food and shelter for thousands of years with zest
Forest wealth make our neighbors envy and test
Mines and rocks giving marbles and granite
Every thing to exploit and live in peace and plenty!

Fallow lands and barren strips on highland
Inaccessible forests and impregnable inland
Conquered and controlled to live in comforts
Extraordinary edifice of exemplary efforts!

My most Merciful Motherland!
Every inch of entire waste land with potential
If made to yield through magic of human efforts – essential
And make the dream of green revolution a sound reality
Bharath indeed will blossom into veritable Heaven!

April 2nd- Lord Rama’s Day

Lord Rama (श्रीराम)

Among the world religions, Hinduism is great
Aiming at world harmony and peace, indeed a treat!
God, Lord Almighty, Creator of the Universe
Religion makes them descend to the earth in forms diverse!

Second April today is the birth day of Lord Rama pet God
Of our Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi died saying RAM RAM
Though died  out of a gun of a terrorist- most pathetic.

He Ram | The last words uttered by Gandhiji before he died -… | Flickr

Hey ram the last word uttered by Gandhi on his death

Raghupathi Raaghava Raajaa Raam
Pathitha Paavana Seethaa Raam
Easwar Allah there naam
Sabko sanmathi dhe Bhagwan!

Named ‘avatars’- incarnations- great ten in number
One is RAMAVATAR the world ever to remember
In human form to demonstrate what DIVINITY is
Born in Chaitra Navami as Dasaratha’s son!

Failure and success, pain and pleasure,  sorrow and joy
Part of human life- Rama’s life taught the humans strong
Success ultimate for the nobles in thoughts, words and deeds
His life all to emulate and prove religious faith is right!

Obedience to parents’ commands, sincerity
Devotion, dedication to cause, and loyalty,
Forgiveness, sacrifice- all divine virtues for sure
Humans can imbibe with devotion to Rama pure!

Thus, the entire meaning of the mantra is a victory to God with His Shakti.

Mantra Translation: I bow repeatedly to Lord Shri Rama, the one who is most beautiful in the world, the one who wards off sorrow and gives wealth to devotees.
