One of the great creations of the Lord Almighty
WORLD TURTLE DAY is today the twenty third of May
To increase knowledge of turtle and respect for tortoise
And encourage human action to help them survive and thrive!

Long lifespan, slow movement, sturdiness, and wrinkled appearance,
An emblem of longevity and stability in many
Cultures around the world. Regularly brought into human culture
With painters, photographers, poets, songwriters, and sculptors using!

An important role in mythologies around the world,
Sea turtles a charismatic megafauna used as symbols
Of the marine environment and environmentalism
Turtle and tortoise have a place in all religions-nice!

Tortoise symbol of wisdom and knowledge, defends on its own.
Personifies water, moon, Earth, time, immortality -known.
Creation is associated it bears the burden of the whole world.

Turtle a symbol of steadfastness and tranquility
In religion, mythology, and folklore from around the world.
Longevity is known by its long lifespan and its shell.
In myths of several cultures Turtle carries the world upon its back!

TAGORE’S GITANJALI Poem 17

 

POEM 17

          ATLAST INTO HIS HANDS!

I am only waiting for love to give myself up at last into his hands. That is why it is so late and why I have been guilty of such omissions.

They come with their laws and their codes to bind me fast; but I evade them ever, for I am only waiting for love to give myself up at last into his hands.

People blame me and call me heedless; I doubt not they are right in their blame.

The market day is over and work is all done for the busy. Those who came to call me in vain have gone back in anger. I am only waiting for love to give myself up at last into his hands.

கீதாஞ்சலி பாடல் 17

கடைசியில் அவன் கைகளிலே!

அன்பிற்காகக் காத்து நிற்கிறேன்

கடைசியில் அவன் கைகளிலே

அழகாய் என்னை அளிப்பதற்கே!

தாமதம் ஆவதும் அதனாலே

பிழையாய் iபிழையைச் சுமக்கின்றேன்!

கால்களைக் கட்டிப் போட்டிடவே

இழையாய் வந்தது சட்டமும், நியதியும்!

நானும் அவற்றை தட்டிக் கழிப்பேன்

அன்பிற்காகக் காத்து நிற்கிறேன்

கடைசியில் அவன் கைகளிலே

அழகாய் என்னை அளிப்பதற்கே!

பழியை என்மேல் சுமத்தட்டும்

அவர்கள் மேலும் தவறில்லை!

அந்தி நேரம் மலர்ந்ததுவே

அனைவரின் வேலை முடிந்ததுவே

என்னைத்தேடி வந்தவர்கள்

திரும்பிச் சென்றனர் கோபமுடன்!

அன்பிற்காகக் காத்து நிற்பேன்

கடைசியில் அவன் கைகளிலே

அழகாய் என்னை அளிப்பதற்கே!

NOBLE PEOPLE! NOBLE SOCIETY! NOBLE WORLD!

Image result for Images for International Mothers day 2018
INTERNATIONAL MOTHER’S’ DAY is today the second Sunday of May-the 13th May! Mother is Divine incarnate!
She is the cause of my LIFE and LIVING!

There is no GOOD MOTHER or BAD MOTHER- she is great and noble!But for HER no people, no society and ultimately no world! Equal is the role of a father which fact cannot be refuted! YET MOTHER IS MOTHER! Most shocking that several mothers are left in the old age homes and orphanages; cruel on the part of the individual responsible.

My mother has taught me the values of life I have to follow all through in my life – which I honestly preach and practice.
On this day several thoughts pass over our minds and here is a SUN DAY STORY in ENVIUS THOUGHTS! I am sure my esteemed viewers from all over the globe will be with me on the points that have been made out below:

In the great creation of God- my Lord Almighty-
There are
NOBLE PEOPLE! NOBLE SOCIETY! NOBLE WORLD!
Yet time and circumstances mould the people:
Good, bad, indifferent, saintly, noble, divine, egoistic, atrocious, spineless, strong, weak!
All need peace and poise, health and happiness, joy and pleasure!
Alas!
Knowingly or unknowingly,
Innocently or deliberately,
Consciously or unconsciously
I become
Friend of some
Foe of some
Liked by some
Disliked by some
Loved by some
Hated by some!

By words and deeds
I spew venom on others
Use, disuse and misuse
Others
Goodness and folly
Wisdom and foolishness
Love and hatred
Kindness and cruelty!

My God
I defeat the very purpose of my birth
Your kind creation!
Please
Mend my ways and end my misdeeds!
Let me
LOVE ALL, SERVE ALL,
HELP EVER, HURT NEVER!
I know no religion
I know no Bible
No Quran,
NO Dhammapada,
NO Vedas!
All I should know on earth
And
All I should follow in life
Is to
LOVE ALL, SERVE ALL,HELP EVER, HURT NEVER!

Let NOT my
THOUGHTS,WORDS OR DEEDS
Be the cause of others
HATRED
DISHARMONY
ENMITY
ENVY
JEALOUSY
Sufferings-mental or physical, financial or intellectual, spiritual or evil!

Let my thoughts, words and deeds
Under any circumstances be
Noble and fair, good and pleasing
Bound to breed
FRIENDSHIP AND HARMONY, PEACE AND POISE
In my neighborhood
Society and world at large
Is my PRAYER to my MOTHER on this HOLY MOTHER’S DAY
And
I am sure as an individual one can shine and so will be his
Home and society!

Let us on this day take up an oath that I will on all counts work for the UNITY of all-their  peace and joy, friendship and harmony! UNITY IS STRENGTH-DISUNITY IS WEAKNESS-  is not a set of  simple and hollow words but pregnant with meaning! No cost is too much for UNITY in the society. In maintaining UNITY each and every one has a role- no matter big or small, man or woman, lettered or unlettered, professional or unemployed- all have  equal contribution-ULTIMATE GOAL is not individual’s pride or ego , it is COMMON GOOD AND HAPPINESS of all!

MOTHER’S DAY pledge can be: ON THIS HOLY DAY I HEREBY PROMISE ON MY HONOR THAT I AM FOR UNITY IN THE WORLD and I will contribute positively for MAINTENANCE in whichever part of the Globe I am in”. –

SHANKARA JAYANTHI IS TODAY! 20th April.

Image result for Shankaracharya Jayanthi 2018

All religions in the world are for promoting peace and joy,
To make the humans behave noble supplementing each and enjoy
No hatred, no animosity, no fanaticism-they preach,
No ill will, no jealousy-that is what they teach!

Among the world religions, Hinduism is one of the oldest
And India- my holy Motherland-is its home tallest
The preacher of the Adwaita philosophy- Shankara
Born one thousand two hundred and thirty years ago!

Today is Shankara Jayanthi- holiest day for us
Fasting, meditating and reading Acharya’s works famous
Ideal way to celebrate the day with all solemnity
Bound to take all HIS followers towards Divinity!

TAGORE’S GITANJALI Poem 16

POEM 16
MY SILENT SALUTATION!

I have had my invitation to this world’s festival and thus my life has been blessed. My eyes have seen and my ears have heard.
It was my part of the feast to play upon my instrument and I have done all I could.
Now, I ask, has the time come at last when I may go in and see thy face and offer thee my silent salutation?
As I see it:
An invitation came to me for living a life in this world.an opportunity was provided. It is my duty to lead a good and noble life. it is very important to receive God’s grace while I am alive and to keep ourselves in a state of readiness to serve HIM.

கீதாஞ்சலியில் 16ஆம் பாடல்
தொழுகை அமைதியில்!
இனிய இந்த உலக விழாவிற்கு
தனியாய் வந்தது எனக்கோர் அழைப்பு!
கிடைத்தது ஆசிகள் என் வாழ்விற்கு!
கண்டன கண்கள், கேட்டன செவிகள்!
இசைக் கருவியை இசைப்பதென் பங்கு!
நசையறு மனத்தொடு நன்றாய் முடித்தேன்!
நான் ஒன்று கேட்பேன் விடை தருவாயா?
இறுதியில் எனக்கு நேரம்வந்ததா?
சடுதியில் வந்து நின்முகம் கண்டு
அமைதியில் தொழுகையை அன்பொடு வழங்கிட?

இந்த உலகில் வாழ்வதற்கு ஓர் அழைப்பு வந்தது, வாய்ப்புக் கிடைத்தது. வாழ்க்கையை நல்ல முறையில் வாழ வேண்டியது என் கடமை. வாழ்ந்துவரும் பொழுது இறையருளைப் பெற்று, இறைப்பணி ஆற்றுவதற்குத் தயார் நிலையில் நம்மை வைத்துக் கொள்ள வேண்டியது இன்றியமையாதது. .

The Tamils all over the world look for and celebrate

Tagore’s Gitanjali Poem 15

 

In English

               COMMAND ME MY MASTER!   

I am here to sing thee songs. In this hall of thine I have a corner seat.

In thy world I have no work to do, my useless life can only break out in tunes without a purpose.

When thy hour strikes for thy silent worship at the dark temple of midnight, command me, my master, to stand before thee to sing.

When in the morning air the golden harp is tuned, honour me, commanding my presence.

As seen by me:

The purpose of giving human life is to ensure every one does his/her duty faultless. One of the duties is to offer prayer to the Almighty, sing in praise of HIM. When he commands us to do certain things, we have to bide by, and carry out his commands unmindful of time and strain and carry out our duties and lead our lives noble.

In Tamil 

கீதாஞ்சலியின் 15ஆம் பாடல்

             தலைவா எனக்கு ஆணையிடு!           

 

உனக்காக கீதம் இசைக்க வந்துள்ளேன்;

இந்த அரங்கின் மூலையில்

எனக்கும் ஓர் இருக்கை.

நீபடைத்த இவ்வுலகில்

       எந்த வேலையும் எனக்கில்லை

எனது பயனற்ற வாழ்க்கையிலும் என்

உபயோகமற்ற கீதத்தில்

உயர்வு பயக்கும் என்பேன் நான்!

 

அந்த நள்ளிரவு நேரத்தில்,

கும்மிருட்டுக் கோவிலில்

அமைதியான அக்கணத்தில்

உன்னைப் பிரார்த்திக்கும் காலத்தில

உன் எதிரில் கீதம் இசைக்க

தலைவா! எனக்கு ஆணையிடு.

மெல்லிய காற்று வீசுகையில்

இளங்காலை நேரத்தில்

உந்தன் அருகே நிற்பதற்கு,

உன்அருளை அடைதற்கு

தலைவா! எனக்கு ஆணையிடு!

 

மனித வாழ்க்கையை இறைவன் கொடுத்தது அவர் அவர் கடமைகளை பழுதறச் செய்வதற்கே.  கடமைகளுள் ஒன்று இறைவனைத் துதித்தல் , அவன் புகழ் பாடுதல். அப்பொழுது அவன் இடும் ஆணைகளை மனத்தில் ஏற்று அவற்றிற்கு கட்டுப் பட்டு, காலம் நேரம் பார்க்காது  கடமையை ஆற்றி, வாழ்க்கையைச் சீரிய முறையில் நடத்த வேண்டும்.
