Happy and New

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.
---An Old Irish Prayer

Happy New Year!

Ashtalakshmi in the New Year

The eight forms of Sri Lakshmi - AshtaLakshmi - are believed to fulfill different human necessities and desires through their individual nature and manifestations. Each goddess personifies one of delightful qualities of Devi Shakti's force giving the blessing. It seem, New Year's eve is a not religious holiday but it symbolizes the beginning of a better tomorrow. And often, people wish all blessings on New year's eve with childlike trust in the benevolence of the universe. So, if we look forward to a good year ahead, these wonderful eight divine forms of Goddess Lakshmi personify these kind forces and can spread happiness for all us.
May Aadi-Lakshmi, or Maha Lakshmi, bless you and cares for you.
May Dhana-Lakshmi or Aishwarya Lakshmi, the Goddess of Prosperity and Wealth, give you all that and the capacity to be poor in misfortunes and rich in blessings.
May Dhanya-Lakshmi, the Goddess of food grains, give you calmness about food every day.
May Gaja-Lakshmi, the Elephant Goddess, give you prosperity, good luck, and abundance.
May Santana-Lakshmi, the Goddess of Progeny, give you possibility to see your children's children.
May Veera-Lakshmi or Dhairya Lakshmi, the Goddess of Valor and Courage, give you the strength to meet your challenges.
May Vidya-Lakshmi, the Goddess of Knowledge, give you a deep understanding of your true value and clear sight to see your best and true path.
May Vijaya-Lakshmi, the Goddess of Victory, make your victorious if you battle for truth and justice.
May AshtaLakshmi 's love should be with all us throughout the coming year. And that is our greatest wealth.

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and Realities of your Existence.
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And To-morrow is only a Vision;
But To-day well lived makes
Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!

Light in the Night

 Georges de La Tour "The New-born"(detail)
  Jesus was born in the night – in the darkness, in the silence and poverty of the cave of Bethlehem. "The people who walked in darkness has seen a great light: on those who live in a land of deep shadow a light has shone", declares the Prophet Isaiah.
What is it, this light?  I think, this light does not belong to any separate religion. It is a mystery of love. The light of truth is revealed to those who receive this most precious gift. Only those who are open to love are enveloped in this light. And on this dark night we heal all our wounds, strengthen our steps, open our hearts and minds to the loving kindness of the One Heart what loves us forever.

Happy Christmas!

All This is from His Goodness

Julian of Norwich (1342-1416) was a Christian mystic. She lived in a cell attached to the church. At the age of 30, suffering from a severe illness and believing she was dying, she had a series of visions which she recorded soon after, and then, after reflecting on them for twenty years, she wrote an expanded version. These are called "Revelations of Divine Love".

Fifth Showing
...Our good Lord showed to me a spiritual vision of His simple loving. 
I saw that He is to us everything that is good and comfortable for us.
He is our clothing which for love enwraps us,  holds us, and all encloses us because of His Tender love,
so that He may never leave us.
And so in this showing I saw that He is to us everything that is good, as I understand it.
Also in this revelation He showed a little thing, the size of a hazelnut in the palm of my hand, and it was as round as a ball.
I looked at it with the eye of my understanding and thought:
"What can this be?"
And it was generally answered thus: "It is all that is made."
I marveled how it could continue,
 Because it seemed to me it could suddenly have sunk into nothingness because of its littleness.
And I was answered in my understanding:
"It continues and always shall, because God loves it; 
and in this way everything hath its being by the love of God."
In this little thing I saw three characteristics:
the first is that God made it,
the second is that God loves it,
the third, that God keeps it.
But what did I observe in that?
Truly the Maker, the Lover, and the Keeper for,
until I am in essence one-ed to Him,
I can never have full rest nor true joy
(that is to say,  until I am made so fast to Him that there is absolutely nothing that is created separating my God and myself.)
It is necessary for us to have awareness  of the littleness of created things and to set at naught everything that is created, in order to love and have God who is uncreated.
For this is the reason why we are not fully at ease in heart and soul:
because here we seek rest in these things that are so little,
in which there is no rest,
and we recognize not our God who is all powerful, all wise, all
good, for He is the true rest.
God wishes to by known,
and He delights that we remain in Him,
because all that is less than He is not enough for us.
And this is the reason why no soul is at rest until it is emptied of everything that is created. When the soul is willingly emptied for love in order to have Him who is all, then is it able to receive spiritual rest.
Also our Lord God showed that it is full great pleasure to Him that a pitiable soul come to Him nakedly and plainly and simply. For this is the natural yearning of the soul,
Thanks to the touching of the Holy Spirit,
according to the understanding that I have in this showing -
"God, of Thy goodness, give me Thyself;
for Thou are enough to me,
and I can ask nothing that is less
that can be full honor to Thee.
And if I ask anything that is less,
ever shall I be in want,
for only in Thee have I all."
These words are full lovely to the soul and most nearly touch upon the will of God and His goodness, for His goodness fills all His creatures and all His blessed works, and surpasses them without end, for He is the endlessness.
And He has made us only for Himself
and restored us by His blessed passion
and ever keeps us in His blessed love.

And all this is from His goodness.

Shani and Hanuman

Small but learning mythological story when Shani's inevitability meets Hanuman's purity and about a lesson from this.

When Shani told Hanuman that his Shani Sade Sati (7½ years long troublesome time) was going to begin,
Hanuman asked: "Which part of my body do you intend to live in?"
Shani said:"I want to sit on your head."
Hanuman:"Very well."
When the first day of Hanuman's Sade Sati came, Shani Dev seated himself on the head of Hanuman comfortably. Now Hanuman began to play a little game. He would take a heavy mountain and throw it high in the air and let it fall on his head. After a few minutes, when Hanuman was just started to enjoy this game, Shani cried: "Stop, O Hanuman, Let me go, I leave you alone."
Hanuman: "You mean that you have had enough?"
Shani replied: "Yes, I have had enough, but at least I made you hit your head."

Remember, Heart!

Poem by Pattinathar (or Thiruvenkadar), a prominent shaivite Tamil saint.

Remember, heart! Remember!

Remember Lord Shiva of the hall of reddish gold.

Remember, heart! Remember!

Cherish not the false chariot and the whirl wind
that is false life on this earth.

Cherish not the body.
Those that are born will die,
the dead will be born again;

What appeared will disappear,
and that which disappeared will reappear;

That which enlarged will shrink,
and the shrunk will enlarge;

That which is felt will be forgotten,
and the ones that forgotten will be perceived

That which mated will separate,
and the separated will mate again.

What is eaten turns to shit,
what is worn turns dirty;

What delighted turns disgusting,
and the disgusting turns delightful;

All these you realised;

Yet You were born birth after birth:
Killed all, and all that were slain slew you.

You ate all, and all that ate you;
You bore all and all that bore you;

Cherished everything,
and everything cherished you;

Exulted during prosperity, wept in poverty;

Rejoiced pleasure and pain on this vast land;

Experienced not leaving out a single thing;

Despite that you considered the water bubble as a bird's nest;

This mean retreat as stronger than stone.

Why Was Adam Driven from the Garden?

"Adam and Eve expelled from Paradise" by Marc Chagall

 'Why was Adam driven from the garden?'
The pupil asked his master. 'His heart was hardened
With images, a hundred bonds that clutter the earth
Chained Adam to the cycle of death following birth.
He was blind to this equation, living for something other
Than God and so out of paradise he was driven
With his mortal body's cover his soul was shriven.
Noblest of God's creatures, Adam fell with blame,
Like a moth shriveled by the candle's flame,
Into history which taught mankind shame.
Since Adam had not given up his heart
To God's attachment, there was no part
For Adam in paradise where the only friend
Is God; His will is not for Adam to imagine and bend.'

---By Farid ud-Din Attar

Two in the Temple

The Biblical Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector from the Gospel of Luke (18:9-14).

To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable:
Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: "God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get."

But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, "God, have mercy on me, a sinner."

I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.

Breathing In Breathing Out

Breathing in, I know that anger is here.
Breathing out, I know that the anger is in me.
Breathing in, I know that anger is unpleasant.
Breathing out, I know this feeling will pass.
Breathing in, I am calm. Breathing out.
I am strong enough to take care of this anger.

 By Thich Nhat Hanh, Zen Buddhist monk

Enter the Door - 7

Let's return again to my Door's theme (others posts - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). This parable is from "The Conference of the Birds", written by one of my favourite authors -  Farid al-Din 'Attar. As a part of "The Valley of Bewilderment", it is a little sad in its uncertainty. Because there was a Door to which somebody found no Key. So, this story is called - "The Lost Key".

A Sufi once heard a man saying, “I have lost a key. Has any one found it anywhere? The door of my house is shut and I am without shelter in the street. If the door remains closed, what shall I do? I shall be for ever miserable. What shall I do?”
“Who wishes you to be miserable?” asked the Sufi. “Since you know where the door is, go and stay near it, even though it be closed. If you sit near it for a long time, there is no doubt that some one will open it for you. Your condition is not so bad as mine. My soul is consumed in stupefaction. Of the enigma that bewilders me there is no solution. There is neither a door nor a key for me.”
Would to God the Sufi could set out in all haste and find the door either open or closed! None can know, none can even imagine, the real state of things. To the man who asks, “What shall I do?”, reply “Do not do what you have done. Do not behave as you have behaved up to this moment.”

Open the Window

There is some kiss we want
with our whole lives,
the touch of spirit on the body.

Seawater begs the pearl
to break its shell.

And the lily, how passionately
it needs some wild darling.

At night, I open the window
and ask the moon to come
and press its face against mine.

Breathe into me.

Close the language-door
and open the love-window.

The moon won't use the door,
only the window.

By Rumi,
