June 15th- WORLD ELDER ABUSE AWARENESS DAY

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day - CNPEA

Today’s Twenties are tomorrow’s Forties, day after tomorrow’s
Sixties! Sixties and above designated as ELDER! None living
Can avoid being an ELDER and the attendant abuse sure
Better to be aware and prepare to protect- simple and pure!
Abuse by the youngsters at home, youngsters outside  both are possible
Abuse by nature -health problems a source of abuse horrible!

In Tamil it is said: முற்பகல் செய்யின் பிற்பகல் விளையும்”
Whatever we do earlier, we shall reap it later! Let us not abuse
Elders when we are young! We shall suffer  as we become elders!
Not only let us not abuse elders, but go all out to be of use and help!
Elders suffering on the road, let us rush to be of use and assistance
A way indeed to show our respect for elders known or unknown!

Esteemed viewers of ENVIUS THOUGHTS, I am sure would have made out why and how this week’s Sunday story!!!!!!!!!!!
The above is a chat with one of my closest co residents of my great mini ‘Baratha Vilasam colony’ Jeevan Bima Nagar, promoted by Life Insurance Corporation of India, my Alma master- with 944 flats for the policyholders of LIC, of whom I am also one notwithstanding the fact that I have served for more than four decades this mammoth Organization in Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan, Tamilnadu etc.! Mr. Suresh Mathew my close friend has gone to US on an official work and caught up there thanks to ALL POWERFUL CORONA!

There are so many “isms” in the world and one is GANDHISM and one who follows Gandhism in thoughts, words and deeds honestly and faithfully can be deemed to be a Gandhian! Let us go a little deeper to find an answer to the question that the TITLE OF THE SUN DAY STORY poses!

Gandhism is a body of ideas that describes the inspiration, vision, and the life work of Mohandas Gandhi. It is particularly associated with his contributions to the idea of nonviolent resistance, sometimes also called civil resistance. The two pillars of Gandhism are truth and non-violence.
The term “Gandhism” also encompasses what Gandhi’s ideas, words, and actions mean to people around the world and how they used them for guidance in building their own future. Gandhism also permeates into the realm of the individual human being, non-political and non-social. A Gandhian can mean either an individual who follows, or a specific philosophy which is attributed to, Gandhism.
However, Gandhi did not approve of the term ‘Gandhism’. As he explained:

“There is no such thing as “Gandhism” and I do not want to leave any sect after me. I do not claim to have originated any new principle or doctrine. I have simply tried in my own way to apply the eternal truths to our daily life and problems…The opinions I have formed and the conclusions I have arrived at are not final. I may change them tomorrow. I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and non-violence are as old as the hills.”

In the absence of a “Gandhism” approved by Gandhi himself, there is a school of thought that one has to derive what Gandhism stands for, from his life and works. One such deduction is a philosophy based on “truth” and “non-violence” in the following sense. First, we should acknowledge and accept the truth that people are different at all levels (“truth”). Second, that one should never resort to violence to settle inherent differences between human beings at any level: from between two people to two nations to two races or two religions (“non-violence”).
Simplicity in life and living and nobility in thoughts, words and deeds are sin qua non.
Khadhi dress –kadhar- is just a symbol and wearing kadhar dress alone cannot be deemed to be simple and Gandhian! From this standard there are thousands and thousands of Gandhians in India and in that case India should be the NOBLEST NATION in the world!
Gandhiji’s autobiography “MY EXPEREIMENTS WITH TRUTH “ is indeed  a great epic!
Here are his views on his cherished principles of TRUTH and NON-VIOLENCE:
TRUTH AND NONVIOLENCE are  the two key ingredients of Gandhian thought. It is not possible to pursue one without the other.  .Word “truth” denotes the “right” thing to do in a morally charged situation. Mahatma Gandhi was fond of quoting the following statement from Confucius: “To know what is right and not to do it is cowardice.”
It may be possible to pursue both truth without regard to nonviolence, and nonviolence without regard to truth.  The pursuit of truth on its own makes us self-righteous. Similarly, nonviolence pursued on its own, uncoupled with truth, could simply be used as a cover to countenance passivity, even cowardice, and degenerate into a form of self-indulgence – just as truth on its own could degenerate into a form of self-righteousness.
If the two-truth and ahimsa-are to be pursued simultaneously, then the question  arises- what is the relationship between the two? The following passage from the writings of Mahatma Gandhi offers a clue to his position on the matter:
It is perhaps clear from the foregoing, that without ahimsa it is not possible to seek and find Truth. Ahimsa and Truth are so intertwined that it is practically impossible to disentangle and separate them. They are like the two sides of a coin, or rather of a smooth unstamped metallic are like the two sides of a coin, or rather of a smooth unstamped metallic disc. Who can say, which is the obverse, and which is the reverse? Nevertheless ahimsa is the means; Truth is the end.  When once we have grasped this point, final victory is beyond question. Whatever difficulties we encounter, whatever apparent reverses we sustain, we may not give up the quest for Truth which alone is, being God Himself (M. K. Gandhi, Hindu Dharma (Ahmedabad : Thus for Mahatma Gandhi nonviolence is the means, and truth, or God, is the end.

This relationship of the two is also capable of being looked at in new light from within an essentially Gandhian framework.

. It seems, however, that there are good reasons for arguing, from a Gandhian perspective, that such a proclamation should be nonviolent. Mahatma Gandhi insisted that human beings are necessarily an imperfect channel for the respective of God’s revelation. This fact means that they could go wrong in some way in speaking for God. So if in disseminating God’s message they turned out to be wrong but proclaimed it in a nonviolent way, then they would have caused minimum harm. And if they turn out to be right – then all power to them.
Is this the reason why crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus in Christianity are companion events?.

This apart,
I distinctly remember on the assassination day of Gandhiji, at age 7, I was  having fever and I refused to take porridge and slept weeping.
My conviction on truth and non- violence NIL? If someone takes a staff and asks me the question, if I say yes, and is likely to beat me I shall say NO NO NO!

That type of Gandhian I am!

It is unfortunate that the present Center proposes to build a temple for that criminal Godse and publish his books. What a shame!
Secularism-yes I subscribe. ISHVAR ALLAH THAERAE NAM SABKO SANMATHI DHE BHAGWAN- Ragupathi Raghava Raja Ram was Gandhiji’s pet song.   I also love it.

I go to temple, stand for a minute in front of any mosque, or Church when I pass through by walk. And think when I cross by other modes. To some extent I don’t indulge in uttering lies with knowledge.

To conclude the Sunday Story –“EMPHATIC NO “ is THE answer to Mr Eapen of US and my dear friend Suresh Mathew at the moment caught up in US!

We shall meet as usual tomorrow and till then BYE!

VASAVI JAYANTHI-May second!

Kanyaka Parameswari.jpg

All the religions in the world aim at social peace and harmony
Make the people live in joy and happiness in a noble manner.
Hinduism has its own greatness and pantheons and philosophy
That makes India that is Bharath our sacred homeland holy!

May second today is VASAVI JAYANTHI! for all to pray to Mother.
Sri Vasavi Maatha is hailed  for promoting peace and Ahimsa
During the Eleventh century. She averted war and saved many lives
Through logic and reason and overcame brute force. She taught the world
Harming others is not the way forward but bringing a change of heart
Is what matters in averting wars.She is placed in heavenly stature

As a goddess she is “Kula Daivam” . She is the caste goddess
For the Arya Vyshya, Kalinga Vaishya, Arava Vysyier, Marathi Vaishya, Beri Vysya and Trivarnika Vysya community says Vasavi Puranamulu in Telugu.
We venerate her as Shanti Matha Vasavi who promoted
Ahimsa for the benefit of all mankind and averted warfare and
Loss of life through peace and reason. Her actions brought a change of heart
In the King who  became a Jain Monk handing over his kingdom to his son
On this holy day let us visit her nearby temple and offer prayers!

WORLD BOOK DAY! April 23rd.

World Book Day | Teaching Resources

World BOOK Day is this day-Twenty Third April-Are you able to hear
Many  mocking  derisively at the books and readers who find pleasure?
These people know  not how to spend time usefully and worthwhile!
Books provide knowledge to all- I  am not concerned I have other sources!!!

Unfortunately placed is our society today
Where book culture has become culture of yesterday
Fast moving times deny the habit of reading
No time to stand and stare at the great books for enjoying!

Writers regret, publishers find it hard to go ahead
Despite Book fairs increasing and sales soaring above head
Habit of reading by youngsters declining fast and strong
Make our system change, parents aware of their wards!

Days of the ebooks are, we are aware and welcome too
World is worried on the decline of book culture as such
Bless us my God! Restore the noble culture in all
Writers to serve, publishers to prosper, and society stand tall!

Mirra Alfassa Birth Day 21st February IS 46

Divine-mother (mirra alfassa).jpg

Mirra Alfassa (21 February 1878 – 17 November 1973)-Pondichery Mother

People born all over the world become Saints and Seers guiding
The world and society towards spirituality-men or women making
No difference. Mother-Pondicherry- Aurabindo Ashram is one
Revered by all  In India and everywhere in the world!

Mirra Alfassa born on this day in Eighteen Seventy Eight
And lived up to Seventeenth November Nineteen Seventy Three,
Known to her followers as The Mother, was a spiritual guru,
An occultist and close to  Sri Aurobindo, who considered her
To be of equal yogic stature to him and called her by the name “The Mother”.
She founded the Sri Aurobindo Ashram and established Auroville
As  universal town; she was influence and inspiration to many writers and
Spiritual personalities on  Integral Yoga.

Mother was born in Paris at a bourgeois family.  she travelled to Algeria
To practise occultism under Max Théon. Then, she travelled Around
The world and finally settled in Pondicherry,  with Sri Aurobindo and his Followers.  settlement was turned into an ashram over the years, where she worked with
Sri Aurobindo in establishing Integral Yoga and guiding its Pupils.
In nineteen forty three, she started a school in the ashram
In nineteen sixty eight established Auroville, an experimental township
Free from discrimination of nationality, language, creed and politics.

My departed wife was a devotee strong for long and write to her for her grace
And soon will get solution satisfactory and prasad packet from Ashram  nice!
