Life is…. 

mystical Poems

 

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

Life is….

Rama Dasa, Life is….

Adhyathma Ramayana by Manish Mokshagundam Part 13

Shiva answers Devi about Rama’s incarnation (Continued) – Part 13

13HINDU-TRINITY

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.

The Giant Tree

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 …

The Night Owl 

 

On the wire sat an owl in the dark night

Swinging upon one leg at great height

Tu hoot tu hoot tu hoot it screeched sprite

Mixed the feelings were wrong or right

 

 

One part saw the feathers white

Imagined the swan in moon light

Separating the milk from water erudite

Rejecting the false choosing the right

 

 

The second watched Lakshmi’s flight

The Goddess of wealth smiling sight

Vehicle is here and affluence a kite

Granting your wish of abundance alright

 

 

Another peeped to see a flamingo light

Balancing on one leg like a sage uptight

One leg on the world knotted rope tight

The other wobbling in air of spiritual delight

 

 

Yet another perceived superstitious fright

To see an owl is an omen not too bright

The job at hand is doomed to be slight

O God! Make it go away or at least quite

 

 

Look at the truth said the owl Rama Dasa

That I come at night to feed Rama Dasa

That I am nocturnal and wise Rama Dasa

Drop the mind and see the real Rama Dasa

The one that is …

 

A dream that seems real is still a dream

Awakening that seems a dream is still a dream

Above these is a sleep deep with no dream

Then there is the one reality that is no dream

 

To react is the possible scheme

When the world comes in full steam

Through the senses flows the stream

Mind fools you in logical scream

 

Comparing with the next Ibrahim

Who has the biggest playing team

Is by far your silliest daydream

Keep away such grand extreme

 

Know that you are but a theme

In the eternal illusionary gleam

Here now in the mainstream

Tomorrow  is another sunbeam

 

Dream in a dream in a dream

You are just a thought it seam

Then why do you look for scheme

Gestalt et al of the supreme

 

Just relax and let it be Rama Dasa

See the reality in the absentee Rama Dasa

The one that is Rama Dasa

Is all that is Rama Dasa

Charter of Dharma

Aum

Charter of Dharma

All human endeavors, individual or social are for synthesis of self and God. The universe is a design for self-actualization, to provide a proper setting for such self realization is the collective responsibility of all Humanity. The movement of life is constantly towards this higher intellectual and spiritual synthesis; to facilitate this momentum, we must discover and express the intrinsic humanity, from an individual to the collective.

This synthesis of self with God on a complete humanity basis is possible if such principles are incorporated in the present synthesis of Nationalism and efforts are made to direct the collective growth of human-actualization. Till such a society takes shape, we must live as a nation before we start living as humanity.

A Nation requires no other commonality except the purpose of human elevation. This unifying principle is at the core of all current Nationalisms, which are formed for the same purposes but result in division instead due to their focus on language, religion, race, region and customs. A common enthusiasm uniting with a common interest is the most powerful fosterer of nationality.

Presently, Humankind has started taking the first necessary steps towards the higher synthesis through several Supranational unions like European Union (EU) and the regional co-operation Nationalisms like the African Union (AU), the Organization of American States (OAS), the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), the Arab League, Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC). The United Nations Organization may yet realize its complete potential.

However, the idea of a Nation cannot be just a uniform system of Governance. The Roman Empire, created a common language, a common religion and life, and tried its best to crush out racial diversities under the weight of its uniform system, but it failed to make one great nation and imploded under its own weight. Frequencies like Geo-political unity, a common History and a common urge to realize itself in an organized manner through governance which expresses its Nationality best, a uniting Leadership and common resistances to a common pressure; all provide the basic impetus to the idea of Nationality.

The plurality and differences in Humankind is in fact the very essence of it. Negating it or trying to form a uniform society is to negate the purpose of Humanity itself. The biggest challenge for Humankind, Governance and Leadership is of creating a setting where every individual can express himself/herself completely and at the same time follow a common set of laws and objectives to fulfill the collective self-actualization of Humanity.

The present popular worldviews of looking at the society through the lens of financial and materialistic yardsticks is rudimentary and incomplete. Contemporary social ideas based on only man- materialistic synthesis essentially propagate an innate conflict with those who have and those who don’t. A natural struggle emanating due to the imbalance of wealth distribution is also an essential component of wealth-based social theories. However, it is common knowledge that wealth alone cannot form the basis of society. A few random efforts on more Holistic indicators of social progress and quality of life have been attempted. Like GNH (Gross National Happiness) policy by the Monarch of Bhutan through the empirical research on happiness, positive psychology and well-being; by a Vermont-based, non-partisan, non-profit organization called Gross National Happiness USA and a few other organizations spread in different nations.

Though GNH is a far more Holistic approach to the elevation of society than wealth based approaches, in its present form it does not factor the plurality of Humankind and probably needs to formulate a very dynamic scale for measurements and indicators. However it is interesting to note that the origin of the concept lies in Buddhist principles. Unlike other organized religions Buddhism does not emphasize on faith but offers a formula of living. A good attempt has been made here to apply this formula in national policy.

Human pluralism can be incorporated quite efficiently into the Holistic approach to social elevation if we include Dharma as the basis of every exchange and transaction. “Dharma is the Law that upholds, supports or maintains the regulatory order of the universe”. All Indian Socio-economic-religious movements like Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and Sikhism have the idea of Dharma at their core; where it points to the purification and moral transformation of human beings.

Dharma is not the same as religion, though differing in some particulars, all concur that the goal of human life is Moksha or Nirvana, wherein lies the completeness and fulfillment of Human life and in which the ultimate nature of Dharma (as cosmic law) is apprehended experientially. Dharma can be categorized into three levels

Swadharma. At the personal level where Dharma is the result of right conduct based on ethical and moral principles. They can also be called duties some personal ones (natural duties that you are born with) or Putradharma or Putridharma (the duties you have towards your parents). There are any numbers of personal Dharma’s as one may value. There are social duties like your Kuladharma (duties to your tribe), Rastradharma (duties to your nation), Manudharma (duties towards humanity) and so forth. Dharma here is obligatory or optional, therefore is of instrumental value.

Dharma for Dharma’s sake. This is a higher level of value, where Dharma is regarded as an intrinsic value worth pursuing for its own sake. Akin to the Kant’s ‘categorical imperative’ where he states in respect to good, ‘that all good in itself, and considered in itself is to be esteemed much higher than all that can be brought about by it in favor of any inclination’. Here, Dharma transforms from an instrumental value to an intrinsic value.

Dharma for Moksha. This is the highest value of Dharma, where it is urged that all activities should be of righteous nature and must also be Nishkama karma (undesired action) with no care for the benefits or fruits. Such deeds and conduct done without desires for the holistic good and probity ensure Moksha to the doer. Here we find Dharma becoming a combination of instrumental as well as intrinsic value. It transforms into a spiritual value for achieving the ultimate spiritual ideal of Moksha.

The movement of Human elevation is essential spiritual. That is the reason we find in societies with a long history of peace and stability an emphasis on the cultural and spiritual aspects. Even the best periods of Human history like the Gupta Era in India are called golden because of the growth and expression of art and creativity. The next step of cultural growth is spiritual growth.

If we are to formulate the ultimate and timeless model for social elevation; we must look for a model that not only guarantees spiritual synthesis but must have spirituality as its basic component. By including Dharma in every action, be it individual, social, national, natural or universal; we can ensure the Human pluralism and individuality to work flawlessly with one universal law.

Any society based on Dharma shall provide the best platform for both collective and individual elevation. Till the time we can move towards a united Human society, Dharma which is simultaneously both rigid and dynamic can provide a Humanity unification code. Societies and Nations can define their own Micro-Dharma best suited for their common Geo-political unity, History, culture and so forth. Markers of social and individual well-being are remarkably trans-cultural: communities generally show life satisfaction if they have strong and frequent social ties, live in healthy ecosystems, experience good governance and adopt spirituality as the basis of life.

An in-depth study of the history of the transitions of tribal states to territorial states in the southeast Asian regions; which are sandwiched between two great civilizations of India and China, indicate that the Kings of these new states choose the ‘Dharmic Model’ over the ‘All under heaven Model’ as this provided them with the independence, equality and the freedom to define its urge to realize itself in an organized manner through governance. This model provides sovereignty to realize itself collectively as well as individually, yet remain attached to the common canon of Dharma.

Spiritual growth is as much required as material growth for Human elevation. It is only when we adopt Dharma as the essential element in every exchange and transaction we shall be able to balance the synthesis of Humanity with God.

Dharma Sutra:
1.Highest synthesis is spiritual synthesis
2.All humanity shall unite through spiritual synthesis
3.Plurality and not uniformity is the basis of humanity and its synthesis

The problem of unification under one model or law while maintaining this intrinsic pluralism of humanity can be solved by adopting Dharma as the absolute value of all exchange and transactions

Implementation of Dharmic values guarantees complete human synthesis at all levels

In Rama I take refuge

In Rama I take refuge

Notwithstanding the deluge

Off the world’s subterfuge

The untruth I refuse

 

Someone asked me once

What makes sense?

I answered in reluctance

Everything you know is nonsense!

 

How can that be?

Request tell me plea

With me all agree

That the world is rupee!

 

Says I no to this allegiance

I know it’s stupid negligence

To walk out on benevolence

More than money is providence

 

I risk nothing of essence

Cause what is, is presence

Of the one and his attendance

His blessings in abundance

 

There is no two

That is enough edu

Rama is the one true

Why the review?

 

What is for you, is

But for me it is his

He alone is that and this

That’s the point don’t miss

 

I did what you do

Ran around too

Looking for the true

Away in the ado

 

Life was a sea ship

All show and hip

Had to rush and zip

Always to fall and trip

 

First it was to excel

Fame and funds swell

In the wants dwell

Devil the soul sell

 

Never gain never again

Shall ever I drink pain

Giving up all the bane

Of the world’s insane

 

That it’s long and it’s slow

Spiritual growth you sow

All encompassing it grow

Enthrall my soul to know

 

In Rama I take refuge

Notwithstanding the deluge

Off the world’s subterfuge

The untruth I refuse
