Rumi's Collection of Quotes


Driving the thoughts. . .

I hardly understood a secret. Earlier I was thinking about bad but striving not to do bad. That path was really like a knife on the neck. Highly horrible. Now I realized the fact. You can't perfectly get rid off this bad things until and unless you don't restrain thinking about the bad. Doing what your mind has said will surely lead to a big damage. Examining your thoughts is an important activity you need to perform on every thought that arises from the mind. From now on I stop counting the days of 'not doing bad' even I don't count the days of 'not thinking bad'. Instead I just enjoy the days of being only Good, feeling and filling Love from inside out upon all unconditionally.

Triple Filter

In ancient India, One day a person met the great Chanakya, and said, "Do you know what I just heard about your friend?"
"Hold on a minute," Chanakya replied. "Before telling me anything I'd like you to pass a little test....
It's called the Triple Filter Test."

"Triple filter?"
"That's right," Chanakya continued. "Before you talk to me about my friend, it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what you're going to say. That's why I call it the triple filter test.
The first filter is TRUTH.
Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"
"No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it and..."
"All right," said Chanakya. "So you don't know if it's true or not.
Now let's try the second filter, the filter of GOODNESS. Is what you are about to tell me about my friend something good?"
"No, on the contrary..."
"So," Chankaya continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him, but you're not certain it's true.
You may still pass the test though, because there's one filter left, the filter of USEFULNESS.
Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?"
"No, not really."
"Well," concluded chankaya, "if what you want to tell me is neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?"
==========================================================
Use this triple filter each time you hear loose talk about any of your near and dear one

Lamps in Life. . .


I'm writing this post with great pleasure. The purpose of lightening the lamps on Kaarthika Paurnami is to signify that to enlighten the lamp of wisdom in the mind. On this auspicious occasion I'm lightning two lamps in my mind. I'll ensure the progress till the next Kaarthika Paurnami. These two wisdom lamps are inspired from Bhagavad Gita and Sri Krishna. 
The first one is the foremost quality of a devotee out of 36 as instructed by Sri Krishna in Gita i.e Adveshtaa Sarva Bhoothaa-naam  - He who hates no one, that devotee is dear to Me.
The second lamp is inspired from the posture of Sri Krishna. Krishna always wear the flute. In his entire life time the one and only one which sought the taste of the kiss of Lord Sri Krishna is the only Vamsi (the name of the flute with Sri Krishna). Even I'm practicing to acquire such a pure mind to taste the kiss of my beloved God Sri Krishna. To purify the mind is the essence. I pray God for a divine life style.

My Life Lessons - 1 : Diversion is Dangerous.


He said. . . I'm Doing. . .

He incarnates in so many forms. Yes I saw him so many times. Even today also. Today, due to some work in the office, I was unable to go for lunch on time. I went at 4:30 in the evening. There was a person sat in-front of me eating. I too started eating. Mean while he started talking to me. He was asking about my home town, my job etc.

Pack Facebook till 9th Nov. . .

Daily during the work time my mind is tempting to open Facebook. Some or other way this is showing some negative effect on my work. So I started to restrict the use of Facebook.  I open Facebook only for 5 minutes in a day. This restriction is till November 9th. After this date I'll slowly extend the date. Facebook is not only wasting my time. But also filling my mind with useless things. In order not to disturb my mind from peace this initiative is very helpful.

Hands in the Society . . . Head in the Forest. . .

Slowly I'm realizing the what Karma Yoga means. My mind is floating in the air like a ship on the water. Earlier I felt, to swim the ocean of this mundane life. But now I sat in a boat called Wisdom to cross this ocean. My journey started now. Our Guru is the one who drives our boat of life. Guru alone knows how to cross this dangerous ocean. One thing that I need to do on my behalf is trust and have confidence on Guru.
I'm starting to live as per Karma Yoga Instructed in the Gita. I came to know this way of living in the life from my Guru. My journey starts on this day. The journey of happiness.To realize the eternal relationship between Me and God. My Guru is the beacon light who is the torch bearer of Sanatana Dharmah.

Decisions Matters a lot . . .

They matter a lot in the life. Decisions leave their foot prints strongly on human life. They alone nurtures the life. They alone even can perish the life. Decisions contrary to the propriety will no longer leave the man in happiness. But one must learn a great lesson in this world very early. Learn to say NO without any second thought. Learn to cross NOT the values of the life. There is no enough time for us to learn everything from experiences. You have to learn so many things and put them in practice through the very Instruction itself. I simply want to say, Never Ever Cross the line of DHARMAH.
