Place of honor-the role he plays sacrificing his self
For his family-kith and kin-  great and noble shelf!

For their welfare- joy and peace, health and happiness ever
In their old age, take care-keeping them in old age home never!

To promote, nurture and nourish sweet peace and harmony
Among young and old, read and unread, poor and rich surely!

The foundation of making us “SLAVE OF LOVE” ever pure
That indeed is the purpose of His creation – wonder
Each for all and all for each cemented by love-ponder!

Love therefore is God and God is Love an eternal truth
To be a SLAVE of LOVE is to be the SLAVE of GOD sure
I am proud to be a SLAVE OF LOVE quite pleasant and pure!

 

SERENITY IN SILENCE

 

In silence you see serenity
In stillness you see divinity
Silence and stillness bring sanctity!
In the battlefield you feel silence
In the market busy, feel stillness
What one needs sure a mind and patience!
It’s only the mind that makes or mars
Train the mind and tame the thoughts sure harsh
Make life’s journey like a controlled horse!
Turbulent waves in storm rock the ship
Captains with skills never meet a pip
Sure the man reaches the glory’s tip!
God dwells in deep silence and strong sound
Great yogis of yore with wisdom found!

 

May I5- International Family Day

What a fall from the noble concept of joint family-dove
Turned to be a nucleus family today bereft of love
For elders-parents, grand parents, uncles and aunts, cousins great
The golden days of yore are gone! Small family today’s treat!

The loss of family values, depreciation of nice
Institution of marriage and all made FAMILY DAY a spice!
To celebrate happiness, love, loyalty and devotion
Let us all join and pray for peace and harmony in the nation!

Family day let us hold is for undying values sure
Love, loyalty and that it is great happiness to all pure.
I stand not for me alone and I am for all- all through life
Million families make the mighty world with joy and light!.

RELIGIOUS FAITH AND PRACTICE-EXCELLENT EASTER

Resurrection (24).jpg

Great indeed is the Universe and its Creator-the Lord Almighty-Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent.

Naturally when the Universe was created, He should have created all living beings-men and women, trees and plants, forests and hills, mountains and valleys,  seas and rivers, waterfalls, lakes and tanks for their use! As the human beings progressed from his prehistoric days, he should have been given the knowledge of God and religion, religion-its purpose, practice, significance, importance, need to practice and so on. There are theists, atheists, agnostics, rationalists, believers and non believers of the existence of God. God and religion are for those who believe-it is a matter of one’s personal faith and belief- no discussion, no debate,  no argument on this.

From the days of “sanathana dharma’ called Hinduism to the latest founded religions it is something  great have and a long and checkered  history.

Mormonism 1820, Bahai 1860, Jehovah’s Witness 1870,  Christian Science 1879, Oneness Pentecostalism 1914, Rastafari 1930, Nation of Islam 1930, Gnostic Christianity 1945, Scientology 1952, any neo-Pagan cult X

“Genderuism”

A religion where men and women are separate entities and don’t need each other. The main agenda or the thought behind this religion is that both men and women are self sufficient in themselves and don’t need anyone else.
And it is alarmingly growing large.
Wicca (founded c. 1949), Asatru (founded c. 1972), the Church of All Worlds (founded c. 1967), and Ár nDraíocht Féin (founded c. 1982).There are others more recent.

Arician Tradition founded by Raven Grimassi, 1998.

Every religion is based on some beliefs or other aiming at promoting peace and harmony, joy and happiness, making the followers to “love all, serve all”, “help ever, hurt never’ in the world and humanity.  Yet it is unfortunate that the world has witnessed several religious wars and conflicts.

We have religious festivals based on sound logic and reasoning, history and practices which often we fail to understand, appreciate and absorb. It is a pity that we have not fully understood our own religion but make efforts to criticize others!

Any religious Festival for that matter, depends in the intense faith and belief in the concept and idea, A lack of belief can lead to a simple observing as a ritual.

Today is a great Festival for our Christian friends all over the world. Yes today it is EASTER FESTIVAL

Easter or Resurrection Sunday, is a festival celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD. It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Lent (or Great Lent), a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance.

Most Christians refer to the week before Easter as “Holy Week“—it contains the days of the Easter Triduum, including Maundy Thursday, commemorating the Maundy and Last Supper, as well as Good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus. In Western ChristianityEastertide, or the Easter Season, begins on Easter Sunday and lasts seven weeks, ending with the coming of the fiftieth day, Pentecost Sunday. In Eastern Christianity, the season of Pascha begins on Pascha and ends with the coming of the fortieth day, the Feast of the Ascension.

Easter and the holidays that are related to it are moveable feasts which do not fall on a fixed date in the Gregorian or Julian calendars which follow only the cycle of the sun; rather, its date is determined on a lunisolar calendar similar to the Hebrew calendar. The First Council of Nicaea (325) established two rules, independence of the Jewish calendar and worldwide uniformity, which were the only rules for Easter explicitly laid down by the council. No details for the computation were specified; these were worked out in practice, a process that took centuries. It has come to be the first Sunday after the ecclesiastical full moon that occurs on or soonest after 21 March, but calculations vary.

Easter is linked to the Jewish Passover by much of its symbolism, as well as by its position in the calendar. In many languages, the words for “Easter” and “Passover” are identical or very similar. Easter customs vary across the Christian world, and include sunrise services, exclaiming the Paschal greetingclipping the church, and decorating Easter eggs (symbols of the empty tomb) The Easter lily, a symbol of the resurrection, traditionally decorates the chancel area of churches on this day and for the rest of Eastertide. Additional customs that have become associated with Easter and are observed by both Christians and some non-Christians include egg hunting, the Easter Bunny, and Easter parades. There are also various traditional Easter foods that vary regionally.

My revered God and Father beloved gone from the world,
Sadness and sorrow engulfed the world, left orphaned-He was bold
And said: Father forgive them, they know not what they do- how kind
When slapped on one cheek. He said “show the other too”- love bound!

The possession greatest He was, had come back to us this day
To redeem His saddened and grieving followers in the right way
Died for our sins, resurrected on the third day,for ascension
To Heaven-great was my Father-Jesus Christ-no pretension!

Fasting on the days preceding the holy day of resurrection
Thinking of Him and focusing on duties-pure meditation
With a firm resolve to LOVE ALL and SERVE ALL-all our lifetime
We celebrate the Easter festival for the whole living time!

Yes; Lord Krishna and Lord Rama of the Hindus displayed the significance of sufferings, the way to take the things in life inevitable; may be paying for the sins committed in our past lives and to be careful in not repeating in this life and that will ensure the next life free of sorrows and sufferings!
Having been blessed to be born as human beings on this holy earth, let us believe in religion and its practices and follow honestly to the extent possible to help a society peaceful and harmonious, joyful and pleasant. The Omniscient Almighty is bound to grant what we pray for.

“More things are wrought by prayer than the world dreams of!”

-Alfred Lord Tennyson.
