So much to learn, phew!!
Points to take home from Dr. Manish’s address to Nursery Teachers
1. 50% of all learning happens before the age of seven years
2. Teaching such young souls is the most responsible “calling” (not job) in the world
3. You are the third parent. Indian wisdom advices child to be under the care of mother till s/he is seven years
4. You are the first person that the child chooses to “Trust” without compulsion. Please do not break this trust
5. This trust will transform to “love”. Accept it and nurture it …
6. Practice “Pranayama” regularly to match up with the high energy levels of the child
7. If something makes you angry. Take dive deep breaths and you will become aware of you anger. The moment you become aware of your anger, it will leave you. Because anger is primarily an unconscious act
8. Look into the rhymes that you are teaching, if it has negative aspects like – breaking crown, having a great fall, losing sheep or all falling down. Then it’s best avoided
9. Instead teach multiple aspects thru stories and rhymes. Best if it’s done in mother tongue. Dr. Manish explained a rhyme in Kannada language that incorporate family system, love, counting through serving of food (Dosa in this case)
10. Most importantly, step aside and watch them express themselves. You teachers may learn more than you can teach
Praying that they create a proper setting for the expression of infant souls….

How It Works
The iAmRta is a gestalt for applied value based living. The program provides intrinsic experiential processes that are custom made to make you cognise the whole gamut of discerning Values, Morals, Ethics, Aptitude, Character Development and so forth. Grounded in a model of transformative learning, the program takes you through the fundamental realisation of the basic structures in which we cognise, think, and operate.

The program also provides insight into the abstract mental constructs in a simple and comprehensible manner. It creates a highly developed sense of empathy specifically towards subordinates, peers, family members and others in general.

You don’t look too scared
Looking to be compared
While all others prepared
You sat there and shared
Take on life you dared
To everyone you bared
Secrets of heart you aired
An open book you declared
Why now you seem flared
People mistook & squared
The round peg impaired
once done cant be repaired
See I never cared
For what others ensnared
I to my own tune blared
One and only unpaired
Life is to be lived & erred
Safe soul is beggared
Cant live on the edged
Lose the plot inhered
The one who lives completed
Is always avant garde-d
Accepting the grace unrestricted
Fulfils existence involuted
The inside world unfolded
Brings forth nectar shrouded
Multiverses of world created
The one in many manifested
(And then the one said ….)
Live complete Rama Dasa
Explore inside out Rama Dasa
There is no inside Rama Dasa
And no outside Rama Dasa
Rama Dasa, Life is….
Shiva answers Devi about Rama’s incarnation (Continued) – Part 13
All the good, righteous people and virtuous Sadhus along with Bhu (The name of Earth in Sanskrit, considered the one of wives of Vishnu) went to see the creator Brahma to seek and find a solution to the menace of Ravana and rid his band of Rakshasas from the face of the earth.
The all knowing consciousness of Brahma realised instantaneously that the Rakshasas are on the verge of destroying the Earth. The lord of the four bearings, the Chaurmukha-Brahma, the creator instinctively knew what must be done. The will is basically the power to manifest form the unmanifest Shiva and bring phenomenon into the physical world, it is called Iccha Shakti.
The Iccha Shakti (The divine will-power) that is yourself Devi have manifested in the minds of people as my consort Parvati. You see Devi; it is again you that is the Bhu who has manifested as the grand screen or stage called earth where all the activities or the play of life happens.
You see Devi, whenever the balance of nature is disrupted, it calls for immediate action.
From me Shiva the pure potential, again the Kriya Shakti (The divine power of action) emerges; That too is a manifestation of you Devi, known verily as Lakshmi. Presently, the creator and the controller of flow and direction of the universe Brahma realised that he must appeal to Vishnu, the lord of all action and happenings of the universe; who along with Lakshmi makes all things manifest.
The great potential flux, the primordial soup before the beginning of time is Vishnu. The sum total of all potential energy that is latent and ready to manifest and become the observable universe is indeed Vishnu and Lakshmi that too is your power my beloved Devi.
The observable universe that which is both the food and subject to witness is the very purpose of manifestation of the supreme consciousness itself. This is too certainly you my darling Devi. Known to the individual souls (Añu) as the Jnana Shakti (The divine power of knowledge), the subjects of knowledge have to protected at all times. The Añu know you as Sasaswati, the manifestation of your own power as knowledge.
When Brahma with Bhu Devi, all the Sadhus, the Deities and the Spiritual souls prayed to lord of action Vishnu; He manifested in the minds of the Sadhakas (the seekers) as they wished to see him. He was luminous like a thousand suns, dispelling the darkness everywhere. WITH PURITY OF MIND THE SEEKERS GOT THE VISION THEY WERE SEEKING; Vishnu appeared with a smiling face with with eyes that resembled a pair of lotus buds. With a disk in one hand and crunch in the other. A mace in his third and a lotus in the forth hand. He was seated on his vehicle Garuda and was accompanied by his consorts Sri and Bhu.
Brahma tried to sing hymns of praises but was chocked with blissful emotion at the vision of the great lord. Nevertheless he sang a beautiful verse to seek the blessings of lord Vishnu.
Shiva answers Devi about Rama’s incarnation – Part 12
Shiva answers Devi in the language of love imparting the deepest esoteric secrets of existence through the Adhyatma Ramayana.
Mahadeva says that Rama is actually the innermost soul of all. Rama is the combination of myself (Shiva) and you (Devi) and THE COMBINED POWER TO ATTRACT LIFE ITSELF. Rama is the perfect amalgamation of Shiva, Shakti and Añu. I have heard this from Rama himself because there is really NO difference between us.
Once it happened that the earth was overwhelmed by the load of evil unleashed by the Rakshasas headed by their king Ravana. There is a secret here too; when humans become greedy and too self-absorbed in their own indulgence they become Rakshasas. These types of people truth be told, are actually Rakshasas. They invariable exploit earth and bring it to the point of destruction. The Rakshasas bleed mother earth to the point of no return. They cut forests, mine minerals, divert rivers, pollute the air, poison the soil, disrupt glaciers, kill the seas by over fishing; basically, work against the natural order of the existence itself.
As you know Devi, the balance of nature is extremely delicate and once the threshold of destruction is reached there is no going back. In Sanskrit the flow of universal direction is called Rtà, the Chinese call it the Tao, the Greeks call it Logos; every species, every ethnicity has been innately given fundamental knowledge of the functioning of the universal flow and every sentient innately partakes in the upkeep of the Rtà.
If you look at the ecological pyramid, you will see that the biomass that is the amount of living or organic matter at the bottom is the highest and gradually reduce as the food web goes higher in the prey-predator ratio. Trees produce food from the Sun, which are consumed by the herbivores, then these herbivores are the food for the carnivore and so forth. However, it is important to note that there is a reliable energy transfer through each stage. However, all the energy at one stage of the chain is not absorbed by the organism at the next stage. The amount of energy from one stage to another decreases.
Which means that the organisms at the top of the food web have to conserve the most energy. Humans have been given the unique ability of “Viveka”, the power of pure potential. They can choose to flow along with Rtà to become one with me and grow into Shiva. This flowing with the Rtà is compared to drinking of the nectar of immortality and is called “AmRtà”. When one flows against the Rtà they it is like consuming miasma and is called “AnRtà”.
All the good, righteous and virtuous Sadhus along with Bhu (The name of Earth in Sanskrit, one of wives of Vishnu) when to see the creator Brahma to seek and find a solution to the menace of Ravana and rid his band of Rakshasas from the face of the earth.
There was once a giant tree
Stood there completely carefree
Making food without paying a fee
Best business don’t you agree
The King decided this cant be
Real estate is ample rupee
How dare the tree be lessee
Without the royal decree
He ordered cutting with glee
Thinking only money no inquiry
The job fell on a novice trainee
Tried to chop it with a machete
Mighty blows did the wannabe
Give the giant tree third degree
With a lot of pain did end the fallacy
That saw collapse of the prodigy
This was the only tree you see
For over thousand acre territory
Taking toxins and in absentee
Giving oxygen for life plenty
The foolish King made a key
To timber all the wild tree
Not learning from the enlistee
Killed all of God’s greenery
It is said O! Rama Dasa
That it took Rama Dasa
Less than a lapse Rama Dasa
For Mankind’s Extinction Rama Dasa
Plant more trees Rama Dasa …
Plant more trees Rama Dasa …
