Hinduism :Part-7.



Monotheism and Polytheism Reconciled


Part-7.



My dear young friends, you know that there is one substance we call cotton.

It has no particular form or shape.

Yet you recognise that it is one substance only that you see in one place as a colourful curtain, in another as a bed sheet, then as a table cloth, towel, Kurta, shirt, pyjama, turban, sari etc.

They all have different shapes and functions but yet you know that they are only different forms taken by cotton only.

The one element water is sometimes present as a well in the back garden or a lake or a river or sea or ocean.

Also, it is sometimes seen as mist and fog.

Elsewhere it is seen as fast flowing stream of water or as hard solid ice.

The same water also becomes cold snow and sleet.

It can manifest as cool dew or freezing frost.

Elsewhere it appears formless yet very powerful and hot steam through a boiler.

In a small way you must have seen pressure cooker in your house.

What intense heat and instant cooking power this aspect of water has got! Before the advent of electricity and diesel engines it was the power of steam that made railway trains run in all countries of the world.

You perceive that behind all these different manifestations mentioned above there is only one thing namely water.


Sri Swami Chidananda

Sub : Future of Tamil Nadu Politics and Governance :

Ref : Rajinikanth not Fit for Politics says Subramanian Swamy


1.

The most expected celebrity to come into politics for the past 20 years is Rajinikanth. Sometimes his speech against certain political leaders gives us a hint of his political venture. But he constantly denies the fact.

2.

Recently BJP party member Subramanian Swamy made a controversial statement about Rajinikanth.

3.

'Rajini is not a stable person, so he is not fit to come in to politics' is the statement given by him. This made Rajini fans to go pissed off.


Note :
1. In the past many persons from cinema industry( in Bharatham as whole ) mainly actors joined politics and miserably failed to perform.
2. In the case Tamil Nadu, where people are mad about Cinema and actors, do not use their intellect to analyse a person.
3. Majority in Tamil Nadu are blind followers  of anything and anybody, without using their sense of knowledge.

LORD SRI RAMA THE APOTHEOSIS OF HUMAN PERFECTION-1.

LORD SRI RAMA  THE APOTHEOSIS OF HUMAN PERFECTION-1.

12/02/2018

We observe this auspicious occasion of Sri Ramanavami as a moment of contemplation on a special spark of Divinity that made its advent on the earth.

Popularly speaking, in ancient historical times, to emphasise the historical advent of this great Divinity on earth has been the exoteric side of the Epics as people generally understand it.

This popular emphasis on the incarnations of God on earth has taken the form of Epics like the Ramayana.

We are told in the Ramayana of sage Valmiki, the earliest of these documents, that it was a history par excellence, a history of a chronological procession of divine exploits which is what we generally mean by a divine Epic.

It is believed that the earliest record of the history of Rama, the Ramayana of Valmiki, was written during the life-time of Rama Himself.


It was not a biography written later on after several years. It was composed then and there, by a contemporary of Rama, sage …

Sivananda's Personality-84

27/10/2017

Dr Max Borkman, a Frenchman, called him bon papa, a "good father". But was the Master just another good man? Good men there are many in this world, but they, too, have their flaws. The Master had none. He was immaculate. He was a perfection of virtues. He was a God-man.

The Master was not so much a person in flesh and blood; he was a sacred presence, a pure spiritual radiance.

"The real Swamiji is not just the person you see and hear at Satsang," said Leslie Shephard, an Englishman and an earnest student of Yoga. "The real Swamiji is an uncanny force, affecting you by thought-currents, and moulding your spiritual development, often without a single word being spoken."

The human side of the Master was like the lantern—and a beautiful lantern it was. But within the lantern burned the unquenchable spiritual Light, and it was this Light which radiated through the lantern, not only to those in the immediate vicinity but to the whole world.
