As we celebrate Full Moon Day today dedicated to Buddha ; three virtues come to mind –
And Let me start with Non Attachment. Having no attachment with desire, people, situations and past or future…leads to erosion of suffering. It never means we can not care and love people…but its done by being Seeer NOT doer. This also leads to us having no expectation from others but only acceptance of universe as it is.
With Non Attachment as virtue, we understand beauty is within . As we go within, connection with inner spirit establishes and peace is natural outcome. Meditation helps a lot in achieving this state. When Peace embraces us we get strong with sense of serving others. Serving makes us Deserving by Universe for we become Giver not Taker.
Compassion develops as an extension of non attachment and peace within. When we have no ego, we receive Greatness. At this state we are seeing other beings and non beings as one and same. We are in Unison with Uni-verse. We feel when some one suffers and we act whenever we can to reduce suffering of others. And this power to feel and contribute comes from our own non attachment as first virtue.
May Buddha be awaken within all of us…for world is in absolute need of compassion and peace.
QUESTION appears Why on Earth? for What? And why NOW?
INDEED this question came about 32 years back as well.. when I was in high school. And 32 years is a very short period for earth …though a significant one for me or any human.
AS I introspect, I see…learning for me are many in this period… Joy of Being Aware, Joy of having a Purpose…Sadness of not able to give 100 percent to many causes and people. Overwhelming thoughts of despair sometimes and being in Gratitude at other times.
BIRTH in a small town in center of India known as Gwalior…And than moving to Bangalore for first Job..and Now working on mission to make 10 Million people happy in coming 9 years…Journey is fascinating and challenging.
I stated seeing each day as New Learning Chapter on this Earth School and Excitement is enormous each day for next day is waited with curiosity. Teacher is different each day and classes are at different places. One day teacher is my colleague and other day is my daughter…one day teacher is my wife and other day is old friend who is now no more!
PLACES are also teacher sometimes as each has its own history and present. Books are teaching me what other have learnt in this school.
AND When we see our life as student on Planet earth…Learning never stops and Death is just last lesson prior to Graduation.
Cherishing each moment and being happy NOW is key to Learn and graduate…Our Consciousness as Parents is Watching our Experience and Learning each day…Love is Language in which our parents speak to their beautiful children..me and you.
