What’s the Point!

13 May
No NhAladiyAr or Avvai KuRaL interpretations… 
No SwamyQuotes… 
… 
No New – in the past 4 days…
Not No More… Certainly not yet..!
Heh.. Heh.. Heh… 
… 

Anyway, despite no new – agmark original – content from Swamy,

the sky didn’t fall… 
  • the sun still promptly came up on east, shining at dawn… 
  • the birds still chirped merrily and flew around merrily… 
  • the strays keep finding many a hiding place in the concrete & steel jungle of compassionless humans to beat the boiling summer heat… 
  • the juicy news loving Indians somehow don’t seem to be bothered about the second coming of the loudest news anchor of them all, with his own channel now… 
  • the rain still doesn’t seem to be convinced that NammaChennai makkaL are worthy of at least a drizzle (when a downpour is the dire need)… 
  • the Americans – more than half of them, at least – still can’t believe their most unpopular President of all time (who they elected democratically only a few months ago) is running the nation like an arrogant game show host, making the unofficial, self-declared big brother of the world aka US of A, the butt of jokes, day after day… 
  • the other crazy despot ruling the rogue nation bordering the other big brother of the world hasn’t yet pressed that dreaded button, to ignite judgement day
  • the sad state of Tamilnadu that has lost its leader a few months ago and somehow trundles along miraculously as a headless body, is yet to wake up to the reality that there is practically no one around to fill her haloed position…

… wait a minute… this post itself is kinda like one of Swamy’s Nano blogs.. So, is he already back to what he does well – Write! That too, after a hiatus of just four days! Ha.. Ha..

1474812545607.jpgSo, since the post has anyway started flowing, why not explore this thought stream a little bit more and expand this to a Micro blog (don’t worry, this won’t be a Macro blong).

The reason why Swamy started writing this post is a truly humbling one. Despite having thousands of followers – all Social Media platforms combined, that is (he isn’t a celebrity after all – & he’ll never choose to be one, knowing how much he abhors BAUHumbug Template Living by the human herd), not one of them – yep, not even a single follower – seems to be perturbed about the absence of any posts from Swamy, in the past four days. Whoa! 
While a complete lack of response or reaction of any kind should be expected in this superfast paced world with a gazillion distractions, it had a telling effect on the person who continues to craft his ideas, thoughts, perspectives in the form of social media posts.
By asking himself “What’s the Point!” and contemplating the many possible intellectual explanations (ah, that bloody busy free mind is in action again) – in silence, if course – Swamy was had an awakening – that “he doesn’t matter!
img_0719.jpgWhile Swamy’s hymns, blogs, quotes, photos, comments, reflections, reviews, reminiscences, quips, jokes, clarifications, pointed answers & pertinent questions may resonate with a few fellow humans and may even matter to a few more, they might as well be from anyone else. Some random X, Y or Z, on social media!
Humans need information as much as they need oxygen.
Just as air – polluted or not – is everywhere, providing the necessary oxygen for people to breathe, content too is everywhere, providing the information – necessary or not – for people to consume.
Without information – useful or not – the mind can’t be active, since it needs information to keep churning thoughts.
If the mind isn’t active, there’s no individual identity.
Without the “i”dentity, there’s no existence. For anyone! 
As long as a creator (crafter) offers content (output),  in any form that a human being is familiar with (books, speech, art, music, etc), s/he will have fans / followers who will – passively, in all likelihood – await the next output from her/im. But,
In a world where quantity overwhelmingly outmaneuvers quality in pretty much everything, it really doesn’t matter who offers the content.
There’ll always be someone else. In fact, a lot more than one – for any type of content. 

That awakening really jolted Swamy out of his “I craft original content” stupor!

Because, it doesn’t really matter. At least not in the present reality – however much unreal it is. To anyone – friend, follower, fan or some nondescript human who stumbled across the original content, because big G (oh no, not the Creator G, but the Searcher G) led him/er to it. As soon as he stops crafting content, his fans / followers will always find some other source – who may or may not even craft any original content at all.
So, “What’s the Point?,” in creating anything, if it doesn’t matter at all!
Fact is – as hard it is to swallow, as any hard fact – only Content rules. And will continue to. Content creators just come and go. 
Lord KrishNA came & went. BhagawadgitA lives on. 
Gautama, the Buddha, came & went. DhammA, his path to nirvAnA, lives on.
ThiruValluvar came & went. ThirukkuraL lives on. 
Poets of the three Thamizh Sangam era came & went. The Sangam poetry collections like PadhiNenkeezhkaNakku live on. 
NhAyanmArs & AzhvArs came & went. Thirumurais & Dhivya Prabhandham live on. 
VAlmiki & Kambar came & went. Their RAmAyaN(am) live on. 
Adi ShankarA came & went. His bhAshyams, slOkAs, Stotrams & six paths of worship live on, as are the mutts, JyOthirlingA & Shakthi peetams he has created. 
AruNagirinhAdhar came & went. Thiruppugazh, VEl & Mayil viruttham live on. 
MahAkavi BhArathi came & went. His poetry & prose live on. 
ArutprakAsa RAmalinga VaLLaLAr came and went. Thousands of ThiruvAsagam hymns live on.
PAmban SwAmigaL came & went. His KumArasthavam & many other mantrA like hymns live on. 
img_1379.jpgParamahamsa YOgAnandA came & went. His “Autobiography of a YOgi” and the KriyA yOgA path he taught live on. 
Swami SivAnandA came & went. Hundreds of his books, offering amazing insights into the magnificent spiritual culture of BhArat live on. 
Bhagavan RamaNa Maharishi came & went. His “Who am I” self-enquiry and “AksharamaNamalai” and “ULLadhu nhARpadhu” live on.
KAnchi ParamAchAryA came & went. His “Deivaththin Kural” & many unrecorded, deeply insightful discourses live on.
Swami RAmA came and went. His path-breaking teachings, demonstrations and books – including the phenomenal “Living With The Himalayan Masters,” – that opened up the mystical world of Indian spirituality to the materialistic western world live on.
Osho came & went. Hundreds of his enchanting books – including “The Book of Secrets,” which expounds Lord ShivA’s teaching to DEvi Shakthi on the 112 ways to self-realization, and the myriad techniques he taught for self-realization live on.
Agastya muni, Pathanjali, AvvaiyAr, Aristotle, Plato, Rumi, KALidAsA, Kabir, Nietzsche, Whitman, Vivekananda, Tagore, ThyAgarAjA, KannadAsan, ChinmayAnandA, Watts… countless siddhars, saints, poets, realisd beings and masters came and went. The content they left behind, lives on.
img_0660.jpgThe list of great content creators – of past & present (including Swamy’s Master Sadhguru) – is pretty long, varied & impressive. And only their content – spoken, written, sung, performed, taught, transmitted – will live on. May be, forever. This has happened without fail, from time immemorial and will undoubtedly continue to happen, until there’s no time left (oh yeah, we’re a truly stupid species, endowed with one extra sense than other beings, that are very capable of crafting the total destruction of the only planet we inhabit in this incredibly vast, still expanding, universe). 
Humbled by this rude but real awakening, Swamy assured himself that he will continue to craft – and share – agmark original content. Of different kinds. As long as he can. Knowing full well that it’s his content that will live on. Not Swamy himself, who – the person(ality) known as @PrakashSwamy – will be consigned to the flames at some funeral place, when he must ease out of the mortal form, in which he remains trapped, in this lifetime. And that’s the only point of creating anything. For any creator. Perhaps, including “The Creator” of all creation that was, is & will be there!
adiyogi41s.jpgThank you Lord, for letting me realise that “I” don’t matter. Thanks to the awakening I had, the brand Swamy rests lightly on my shoulders now, with a lot lighter head than before! And with your boundless Grace guiding me for the rest of my existence, may valuable content continue to flow through me, if I’m worthy of being your instrument. PraNAm _/\_ 

Be Joyful & Spread the Cheer 🙂

B’I’nary ‘i’nsight!

31 Dec

The single letter word I pretty much summarises why humans are such a screwed up species.

Always written in capitals, anywhere in a sentence, it symbolises the every rising ego, by standing tall, like a sore thumb.

That’s why, it’s so hard to contemplate the simplest – and needless to say very elegant and exceptionally eloquent – essential question thay may lead one to eternal wisdom, offered by the Sage of AruNAchalA BhagavAn RamaNa Maharishi, “Who am I?”

It’s so hard to get past one’s simple name, when one asks the question him/erself isn’t it!

Equally intriguing is it’s nondescript non-capital form “i”, which can come to the rescue of the increasingly frustrated ones who struggle to get over its towering capital big brother. Since the much humbler “i” is probably the solution to all the misery caused by the ignorant arrogance of it’s irritable big brother, let’s look at it in a bit more detail.

Unlike the adamant tall “I”, the humbler “i” is actually made of two parts, which may even be considered as the two states of binary “1” & “0”, which has been interpreted in a million different ways in different cultures such as “Shakthi” & “ShivA”, “Yang” & “Yin”, “On” & “Off”, “Ecstasy” & “Stillness”, “PrAkrithi” & “PurushA”, “Individual Self” & “Supreme Self”, “Pashu” & “Pathi”, “Everything” & “Nothing”, “AgnAna” & “GnAna”, “Thing” & “No-Thing”, “PingalA” & “IdA”, “Thought” & “Silence”, “AvidhyA” & “VidhyA”, “Intellect” & “Intelligence”, “MAyA” & “Reality”, “Manifest” & “Unmanifest”, “Oneness” & “Allness”, “Exclusion” & “Inclusion”, “Incomplete” & “Complete”, “Partial” & “Whole”, “Knowledge” & “Knowing”, “Darkness” & “Light”, and so on and on and on.

Going from the never ending quest of being the “1” in everything one does for mere survival, to the state of acceptance that all that one does is utterly pointless unless one realises the true purpose of Life, i.e. becoming the “0”, is the journey called Life. Since realising this Truth is the purpose – not a Goal, which is what hilarious humans are driven to, in anything & everything – the emphasis in Spirituality is always on the journey and not the destination, because there isn’t any.

And the possibility for that realisation opens up only when the head full if “I”, i.e. the “0” on top of the “1” is chopped off and rolls away, so that this “1” being realises that it isn’t an individual being at all – despite all the name, fame, religion, caste, social status, wealth, power, etc.  but just another being in the vast myriad creation, all of which is a part of the whole of “0”.

Time to pick up the gnAna axe and swing your way up above the mighty looking ignorant “I” mountain, with the newly gained Binary “i”nsight as your climbing guide, and proceed towards the self-realisation summit, eh!

Long & Far!

7 Sep

6 sigma (ahem, that would be 99.999999%) of humans confuse survival with Life. They believe whatever daily drama they’ve to enact is for a better life for themselves, their organisation and near & dear. BAU humbug. 

Survival is the routine you do for eking out a living, in the society you’re part of (sort of). It encompasses all things you’re expected to do, just like everyone else – studying, working, toiling, buying, pleasing, partying, cursing, driving, arguing, sulking, smirking, crying, wanting to die, and all such shallow nonsense.

You’ll eventually reach a point where you must inevitably ponder the question “How long?” 

Life is the grand creation that throbs with energy all around you, in a multitude of forms & hues. And within you too. You won’t notice it as long as your focus is on survival, which is essential, but not critical, to living.

Once you ask the inevitable question and shift your focus from mere survival grind to magnificent Life, a whole new journey awaits you. The choice to start it is yours, obviously. 

The intriguing question that’ll be asked to you then – from within – will be, “How far!”

The earlier you ask the former question to yourself, the better, since the same grind awaits you gleefully, in the next lifetime, and the next, and the next….. 

The longer you choose to persist with the latter question, the better, as going all the way is the path to liberation!

The truth about Truth!

25 Sep

The hardest thing about Truth is, 80% – at least – humans will be confused, shocked, disappointed or disillusioned when they experience it.

OMG-KirabWhen you didn’t get that bike with gears for your birthday, it wasn’t because your dad didn’t love you, but he couldn’t afford it, at that time. He still got you a cycle though.

 

When you didn’t score the highest mark in your favourite subject, it wasn’t because the teacher didn’t teach well, but you didn’t reproduce exactly what was taught. The  evaluator doesn’t know or care about your linguistic prowess & has to correct hundreds of answer sheets with similar answers.

OMG-MonkeybWhen you didn’t ace your first job interview, it wasn’t because the interviewer was satan’s incarnation, but you were too cocky about your theoretical knowledge. She could easily pick a better one, who was humbler too.

 

When your couldn’t buy the motorcycle or car of your dreams with your annual bonus, it wasn’t because the vehicle was overpriced, but you had other expenses or debt to be paid off. Your friend bought it without breaking the bank because he had the sense to invest a % of his pay, every month.

 

OMG-A-BranchbWhen you couldn’t marry the love of your Life, it wasn’t because he ditched you for a fairer, richer girl, but you expected him to relocate. He was willing to do that after an year though, since his current project was his ticket to a raise or promotion or both.

When your kid couldn’t get a seat in the marquee school that charges a hefty fee, it wasn’t because the school was communal, but you lived farther & they didn’t have transport. He loved going to the neighbourhood school anyway as he could spend more time having fun with grandparents than sitting in a van full of tired kids.

image

When you couldn’t buy that villa you desired, it wasn’t because you couldn’t afford, but because that would’ve hit your plan to get your kid coached professionally in the sport he loved. Your choice to buy an apartment in the neighbourhood where you live paid off big time anyway as the real estate price soared.

When your parents refused to leave your home town to live with you in the big bad city, it wasn’t because they abhorred your family, but because they were comfortable with the idyllic slow-paced Life of the small town where everyone knows everyone else & care to stop by & enquire about wellbeing – including yours. You used to love that place & parents too, while you were growing up!

image

Experience of Truth is cathartic. It’s hard to accept, because most of your living is a facade, which, unfortunately, you’ve started liking & enjoying.

Truth even hurts most times because you can’t do anything about it. So, you inevitably end up doing all kinds of drama, pointing fingers at others & blaming them for what’s essentially your doing. In short, you’re stuck in your own maze.

There are three choices when it comes to Truth.

image

First is “It’s not my fault!“, i.e. denial & running away.
That’s what you do most of your Life. And you know it sucks.
Second is “So what!”, i.e. defiance & resisting change.
That’s what your ego does to you many times. And you know that hurts.
Third is “Now what!”, i.e. acceptance & taking action.
That’s the way to comprehend the truth about Truth!

Be joyful 😌 & spread the cheer 👌

So, What About You?

29 Apr

So, What About You?

– a Mjolnir blow to wake you up from your Rip Van Winklish slumber!

Disclaimer: Any reference to ‘You’ here isn’t about ‘you’ per se’, but about human beings as a species. So, while reading or upon completion of this (full) post, please don’t get so cooked up to retort with a vehement comment against the poor author! You (this time, it’s indeed you) are most welcome to leave your pov / reflection as a comment, of course 🙂

You’re the leader of a team; boss of a unit; owner of a shop; or leader of a company, on the professional front. You may probably be someone else, but you get the drift.

You probably also are the head of a family; the first or last born; the favorite son or daughter (or the unfavorite in-law, if you happen to be an avid soap watcher who firmly believes such clichés are forever) on the personal front.

Achiever1That naturally makes you think you’re somebody – important, powerful, indispensable, inevitable, etc., which bloats your ego to a larger than XXXL size. Some call it ‘headweight’, appropriate perhaps, as that’s how it feels when you start thinking too much about yourself. This obviously makes you feel extremely good about your job or family, as you find shepherding the minions at professional and personal front both amusing and rewarding. You thoroughly enjoy pulling up people for their incompetence, give an earful of “If I were you” advice – irrespective of whether they need it or not and compare one person to another as if they’re oranges stacked up in the shelves of Pazhamuthir Nilayam or Kroger. It won’t be too far fetched to say occasionally (or often, depending on how severe your self infliction is) you feel like having the world on your palm, controlling which way it spins.

Seesaw1Of course, the oranges, aka, others who’re in the ambit of your influence may quite possibly be thinking that you’re an unbearable pain-in-the-@$$ who’s perennially drunk on power but in reality worse than a used dispensable tissue and a curse in their Life that they’ve to just live with. But like 80% of their own species, they don’t express it but instead grin and praise you as their lord and savior, whenever you grace them with your inglorious presence. That makes you do more and more of such nonsense. Deep inside the crevices of their heart (we humans are deeply emotional beings, after all) they’re hiding the truth that they’ll probably take the day off and celebrate if you’re hit by a truck enroute to work tomorrow morning!

Ahem, once you recover from this shocking truth (rest assured, it is) that just hit you hard like a blow from Mjolnir, aka Thor’s hammer, that appeared from nowhere but appears to have been directed specifically at your head all the way from Asgard, it’s time to get some perspective on who you really are… Shall we get started?

Thinking_ChimpYou’re some X or Y – yep, the chromosome too did its part in determining who you’re

You’re part of some team – one way or other, both professionally and personally

Your team is part of some organization – either your own with you at the helm or someone else’s

Your organization is part of an industry – they all are, supposedly to compete in a healthy way and offer better products and services to customers. Whether they really do so is one of those ‘big why’ questions…

Earth_Lights_from_SpaceYour industry is one among the many industries that dot any nation – irrespective of whether you’re already perched atop Maslow’s hierarchy or not…

You’re located in just one nation (local business) or happen to be a multi-national (global conglomerate) – they say it depends on your ambition but it appears to be more of greed, not just to your competitors but consumers too…

Earth_from_SpaceYour nation(s) is part of this tiny planet called Earth – yep, the only planet inhabited by our species certainly isn’t as big as your ego and you’ll know why in about 14 seconds…

The Earth is part of a bunch of planets located in the Solar System – come to think of it, your planet circles the Sun and without it’s light you and your bloated ego are doomed, almost instantaneously…

Galaxy_AndromedaBtw, did you notice it’s already no more ‘your’ something anymore…

The Solar System is part of the Milky Way Galaxy – ahem, it’s just one of the planetary systems that dot that galaxy…

The Milky Way is one of the many galaxies that are spread far and wide in the space – it’s a fact that we still have no clue about how many such galaxies are there…

The Galaxies dot the deep Space that seem to exist all around and beyond – it’s true that Space is all pervading and we can’t even imagine if there’s a boundary or logical endpoint to space…

Take a deep breath. A few more please. Get hold of your senses. Take a short walk to clear that stunned head of yours. Slowly sipping your favorite brew (not that brew bozo, it’s the caffeine kind we’re talking here) while staring at that striking blue sky might help!

Cosmos2Hmmm… looks like you suddenly appear to be tinier than a speck of dust on the road in front of your home. And most certainly there won’t be even a rumble or tremor in the Cosmos tomorrow morning, if you’re actually hit by a truck enroute to work, to torment the poor fellow humans who just happen to work for or with you. They at least have a choice to walk away, but your poor family… tsk.. tsk..

In the cosmic scale of things, you don’t seem to matter – to anyone or anything. Let’s see if at least some of your so called creations matter…

Screaming4You’ve documented your history proudly – a mere account of individuals and events, predominantly from the victor’s perspective, which is reduced to reams of paper that not many are keen on learning anymore…

You’ve created a fierce national identity – a mere geographical divide of the same race on the same planet, which is extremely effective in dividing the human race than uniting…

You’ve created languages to communicate – a mere arrangement of sounds to convey your ideas and thoughts, which are so many that a single human would never be able to learn all of them in a lifetime…

You’ve created religion to herd people by faith – an organized path to realization, which has been reduced to a mere model that binds people more by hatred than love and led by those who neither are realized nor have true knowledge…

You’ve created many thingamajigs of material nature – a way to make living easy, which is only Life the way you know it, i.e., the absurdity of existence, and not Life the way it is

Monkay1All of your creations seem to have forgotten the essential (& existential) truth of Life – especially in these troubled times. That we’re just one of the millions (billions?) of connected creations that adorn this tiny planet in myriad hues, forms, shapes and size. And all those marvelous beings are certainly not a human creation and perennially beyond most human comprehension!

Whoa, you still aren’t ready to scream “alright, that’s enough… I get it!” Well then, here’s the last salvo to burst that thick bubble of yours…

5Elements1The earth you tread on and live on seems to be far more firm to withstand the mindless human onslaught to destroy it, yet endlessly forgiving to nurture all kinds of Life, including yours…

The fire you create and use seems to be far more capable in making things – from food to tools – yet fiercely powerful beyond belief, when it chooses to burn down everything in its sight…

The water you fetch and consume seems to be far more humble to stay in oceans or flow in rivers, yet incredulously powerful to wash away all of your creations whenever it decides to wash ashore as a flood or tsunami…

The wind you let in and leverage seems to be far more gentle, caressing the frail bodies of all beings and let them live with an endless supply of air to breathe, yet menacingly powerful to smash to smithereens anything and everything in its path when it transforms into a typhoon…

Flowers3The sunlight you await every single dawn seems to be far brighter and longer lasting energy source than any of the light sources you’ve invented…

The lightening you witness unfailingly during rains seem to be the most powerful source of power than any you’ve imagined, yet you’ve absolutely no idea on how to tap it for your own never-ending needs for more power (of the electric kind, not political)…

The flora you somehow still let flourish seems to be far more capable of survival by staying in tune with the nature and not working against it…

The fauna you push towards near extinction by rabid consumption and habitual destruction of their habitat seems to be far more content to ‘Just Be’ the way they’re meant to be than trying to think hard for those ‘aha’ moments to find ways for a better Life only to end up screwing it big time, time and again, like the amusing (and needless to say, annoying) two legged human creatures that roam this planet proudly, as if they created everything…

OMG_AnimalsHeck, even the tiny birds seem to be far more agile and efficient to endure (and in all probability enjoy as well) airborne journeys longer than your largest airplane… the miniscule ants seem to be far more capable of movement on multiple axes and lifting weights that are many times their own… the mountains seem to be far more sturdy than any structure you’ve created… the fragile blades of grass seem to be far more durable than the toughest fabric you’ve discovered…

Mjolnir1The list of things and beings you’ve taken for granted all seem to be better than you, in more ways than one…

But, it’s still hard for you to accept that there are things better than you. Well, you get what you wish for – here’s that Mjolnir blow to wake you up from your Rip Van Winklish slumber that you just seem incapable of getting out yourself.

Take your time to do just one thing to assure yourself that you’re a greater being. Find a nice, cozy place that you prefer as your personal space for ideation, creation, and other such blah. Think hard or brainstorm with the minions under your purview to do just this one task…

“Create a single blade of grass that’s better in form, shape, hue, texture, durability and ability to blend in as part of a large community (of fellow blades of grass).”

Thinking2That’s it. Simple as that – create a single blade of better grass. Or a myrtle green Leaf. Perhaps a fragrant Flower. May be a buzzing Bee. Or a fluttering monarch Butterfly. How about that cute cuddly Puppy? A gentle Giraffe? A massive blue Whale? Oh btw, in case you’re scheming to fall back into your typical human ways of finding wily alternatives to doing the right thing, strictly no cloning business here – just an elegant original creation!

Knock, knock (a couple of firm taps on your block head). Hello, anybody home?

Why have you suddenly become so quiet? What happened to that stronger-than-steel belief of you being superior to any other earthling? Where has that non-stop “i-me-mine” chatter gone? When are you going to stop staring at the vast emptiness that suddenly seem to be all pervading and all encompassing?

Huh, contemplating Life… are we! Suddenly (and inevitably) it dawns upon you… whatever big ideas you’ve had about yourself in that big head of yours seem to be just ‘bah humbug’ that you created. That carefully crafted and tirelessly practiced I-me-mine routine seem to be totally pointless. And you comprehend that you are completely clueless about the meaning and purpose of what you call as your Life!

Dhyana1It’s alright dear fellow human… Truth is never meant to be nice, pleasant or easily digestible. Truth hurts first; systematically demolishes the thick “i” wall you’ve built brick by brick next; obliterates any shards of “me” still left then; and spotlessly washes away whatever remnants of “mine” that remains at last. Truth eventually leaves you stark naked in the perennial glow of reality, so there are no illusory shadows about yourself left anymore. At that point, accepting your true ‘self’ appears to be the only choice left.

If you, at long last, choose to be humble and willing to accepting the choice (instead of your usual choosing a preferred choice), then you’re ready to take the first step on the path to self-realization. And it’s a long way to go before realization actually dawns upon you – could even be a journey of many lifetimes. Perhaps during that enchanting journey, you’ll also come to know, eventually, the journey is the destination!

Keeping all that in perspective, just for a single moment, think about yourself all over again. So, What About You?

Note: The “What about you”, i.e., core message of this post, came from Swamy’s Master Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, who doesn’t mince words when it comes to pricking the ego balloon of all seekers who chose to be drenched in his boundless grace. When Swamy heard it from his Master, whatever remnants of ego that still remained were shredded to bits. And the message did hit one like a a Mjolnir blow to wake oneself up from one’s Rip Van Winklish slumber!
