ख्वाहिश

कभी कभी मुझे लगता है कि मैं फिर से अपने बीते हुए दिनों से गुजरना चाहती हूं। किसी चीज को बदलने के लिए नहीं लेकिन फिर से अनुभव करने के लिए।

फिर से छोटी बच्ची होकर मां के गोद में लेटकर उसकी मुस्कान देखना चाहती हूं। फिर एक बार अपनी स्कूल जाना चाहती हूं। पढ़ने नहीं लेकिन अपने साथियों से छात्रावस्था के दिनों में रहने के लिए, जिन्हें मैं स्कूल दिनों के बाद कभी नहीं मिली। कालेज फिर से जाना है, सिर्फ अपने पढ़ाई को और एक बार खूब समझने के लिए।

दिल चाहता है पहले काम करने के क्षेत्र में फिर एक बार नवसिखुआ होना चाहती हूं, कामचोर होने नहीं बल्कि पहली तनख्वाह को हाथों में लेने की अनुभव के लिए।

फिर से शादी करना चाहती हूं। पार्टनर को बदलने नहीं लेकिन शादी की खुशियां धूमधाम से फिर एक बार मनाने के लिए। यदि मेरे बच्चे फिर से छोटे हों जाएं, इसलिए नहीं कि वे बढ़ रहे हैं, मैं इस बार उनके साथ खूब खेलने के लिए। मेरी उम्र लंबी होने की आशा करती हूं, ज्यादा दिन रहने नहीं लेकिन यदि मैं किसी का सहारा बन सकूं।

Mridanga saileshwari temple

……
There is an ancient temple in India made famous by thieves. Four times in recent history, thieves stole the temple idol but returned it as they could not go far with it.

The reasons they gave ,makes the story even more intriguing.

Mridanga Saileswari Temple is an ancient temple located at Muzhakunnu – Kannur district in the southern state of Kerala.The temple is among the 108 temples believed to have been established by Sage Parasurama.

There is a story behind the temple getting the name “Mridanga Saileswari”.

Mridangam is a percussion instrument from India of ancient origin. In ancient Hindu sculpture, mridangam is often depicted as the instrument of choice of Hindu deities like Ganesha and Nandi, the vehicle and follower of Shiva. Mridangam is also known as Deva Vaadyam or the musical instrument of the Gods. It is believed that a piece of rock, perhaps a meteor, in the shape of Mridanga fell from heaven at this place and Sage Parasurama, feeling the presence of Goddess, invoked her into the Rock and established a temple for her.

Mridanga Shaileswari temple is also considered as the birthplace of South Indian Classical dance, Kathakali. In this temple, Goddess Sakti is present in three forms namely, Kali, Saraswati and Lakshmi.

A couple of years back, Rtd. Director-General of Police of Kerala State, Shri Alexander Jacob made public the stories of four robberies that happened in this temple in previous years. The estimated value of the temple idol is around 1.5 crores. With no security around the temple, it was an easy target for thieves.

The first break-in at the temple took place in 1979. The thieves took the idol from the temple, but the next day morning, the idol was found to be abandoned few metres from the temple. The Police couldn’t find the culprits. The idol was reconsecrated as per the rituals. The ritual lasts 41 days and requires certain mantras to be recited 41 Lakh times.

A few years later the story repeated. But this time, police could not find the idol and the investigation was stuck without any leads. The temple authorities decided to go for an Ashta mangala Devaprashna. Ashta Mangala Deva Prasna is conducted to ascertain the causes and to plan remedial actions.

With the deva prashna, it was calculated that the idol was travelling towards the state of Tamil Nadu but the powerful idol of Goddess will return to its abode by its own divine power.

As predicted, on the 42nd day, Police received information of an abandoned idol beside a highway in Palakat near Tamil Nadu with a note left behind. The note read – “The idol is from Mridanga Shaileswari Temple, we are not able to take it any further. Please return it to the temple”. Again the idol was reconsecrated like the previous time with rituals lasting 41 days. But the Police could not trace the thieves this time too.

Since this is the second time, Police suggested improving the security for the temple by posting a police guard there. But the temple authorities declined the offer saying that the Goddess can protect herself.

Soon thieves struck for a third time, this time, a gang from the state of Karnataka. They planned their route through the forests of Wayanad to Karnataka to evade the Police. The Police were clueless for the next three days, but this time, both the temple authorities and the local people were confident that the Goddess will find her way back, even if the police failed to find the culprits.

On the third day by mid-afternoon, the Police received an anonymous call from a lodge in Kalpatta, Wayanad in Kerala. The caller introduced himself as one of the gang members and gave details of the location of the idol. He requested the Police to return the idol to the temple citing that they are not able to take the idol with them. Police found the idol at the lodge, with flowers and a lighted lamp placed near the idol. The usual rituals followed and the idol re-consecrated.

Statue of Pazhassiraja at Mridanga Saileswari Temple
Police made a breakthrough in the second robbery attempt by accident. A gang of idol thieves from Tamil Nadu were caught when they attempted to steal idol from another temple in Cochin. They confessed stealing idol from Mridanga Shaileswari a few years back. Same way, people behind the third robbery attempt was also caught accidentally when they attempted to steal idol from a temple in Kasaragod in Kerala. They confessed their role in the third robbery attempt at Mridanga Shaileswari Temple.

Naturally the curious Police wanted to know, the reason behind the serial thieves, abandoning the Mridanga Shaileswari idol halfway through. Both the gangs gave the same reason that astonished the police.
When they touched the idol, they lost their sense of direction and everyone entered into a confused state of mind and lost all sense of direction and could not proceed further and they decided to abandon the idol halfway through.

Three failed attempts did not deter another gang of idol thieves. This time it was a gang of seasoned thieves from a minority community in Kerala state itself. They did not believe in the supernatural powers of the idol. They also abandoned the idol. When later caught, they gave the same reason for abandoning the idol.
There are a lot of things around us that we cannot reason with our intelligence and our scientific knowledge.

धर्म-अधिकार

दोनों दोस्तों के बीच पार्क में चलते – चलते आज के सामाजिक परिस्थितियों के बारे में बातचीत हो रही थी। एक डाक्टर और दूसरा वकील थे।

वकील बोल रहे थे कि “औरंगजेब मंदिरों को गिराकर मस्जिदों को बनवाया। आज की सरकार मस्जिदों को निकाल कर मंदिरों का निर्माण करना चाहते हैं। दोनों में क्या फर्क पड़ता है? “

अब डाक्टर ने कहा , “छोड़िए इन बातों को आपका बेटा यहां जो ऐस्क्रीम् खा रहा था, वह अब यहां दिखा नहीं दे रहा है, कहां गया होगा?”

वकील बेबसी से बेटे को खोजने में चारों ओर चक्कर लगाने लगा। तभी डाक्टर ने कहा “वहां देखिए आपके बेटे को वहां एक काले कुर्ते वाला उठाकर दौड़ रहा है। ” वकील दौड़कर बेटे को बचाने जा रहा था। डाक्टर ने उसे रोकते हुए कहा कि ” आपसे उस लड़के को वह उठाकर जा रहा है और आप भी उस लड़के को उस आदमी से छीनना चाहते हैं? दोनों में क्या फर्क पड़ता है?”

*अरे! वह आदमी मेरे बेटे को उठाया है वह तो मेरा अपना औलाद है। और सिर्फ मुझे ही उस लड़के पर अधिकार हो सकता है। वह मेरे बेटे का अपहरण कर रहा है और मैं उसे बचाने जा रहा हूं। दोनों एक कैसे हो सकते हैं “? डाक्टर ने हंसते हुए कहा “अब समझ में आई न औरंगजेब के लूट और सरकार के पुनर्निर्माण के बीच की अंतर!!! लीजिए मेरे गाड़ी की चाबी और जल्दी बेटे को वापिस लाइए।”।

Journey

*Our trip is Very Short I’ve read this atleast 5 times since this morning. It’s so true and beautifully written*

A woman climbed up the bus and sat down beside a man, hitting him with her numerous bags.

When the man remained silent, the woman asked him why he did not complain when she hit him with her bags ?

The man replied with a Smile:
“There is no need to be upset about something so insignificant, as our journey together is so short,
because I’m getting off at the next stop “

This answer disturbed the woman so much , she asked the man to excuse her and thought the words needs to be written in gold

Each of us must understand that our time in this world is so short, that darkening it with useless arguments, jealousy, not forgiving others, discontentment and bad attitudes are a ridiculous waste of time and energy.

Did someone break your heart? Stay calm.
The trip is too short
💛

Did someone betray you, intimidate, cheat or humiliate you?
Relax – Don’t be Stressed
The trip is too short.
💛

Did someone insult you without reason?
Stay calm. Ignore it.
The trip is too short.
💛

Did some one make a comment that you didn’t like?
Stay calm. Ignore. Forgive, keep them in your prayers & love them still for no reason.
The trip is too short.
💛

Whatever the problems some bring to us, it is a problem only if we think of it, remember
that our journey together is too short.
💛

No one knows the length of our trip. No one has seen tomorrow. Nobody knows when it will arrive at its stop.

Our trip together is too short.💛

Let us appreciate friends and family. Keep them in good humor. Respect them. Let us be respectful, kind, loving & forgiving.

Because we will be filled with gratitude and joy, after all Our trip together is very short.
💛

Share your smiles with everyone….choose your path to be as beautiful as you wish it to be
Our trip is Very Short 💛…

लघु कथा

गुरु श्री रामकृष्ण परमहंस अपने शिष्यों को गंगा नदी के किनारे उपदेश दे रहे थे। स्वामी विवेकानंद भी उनके साथ बैठे थे।

तभी अचानक कुत्तों के भौंकने के हलचल सुनाई पड़ी। एक कुत्ता वहां के कूड़ेदान से एक हड्डी अपने मुंह में दबाए तेज़ से दौड़ी। बाकी कुत्ते उसके पीछे भौंकते हुए भागने लगे।

गुरूजी अपने चेलों से इस दृश्य को देखकर अपने मन की बात कहने की आदेश दी। एक ने कहा कुत्ते का आदत दूसरों को दिए बिना खाना। दूसरे ने कहा, बलवान की जीत, तीसरे ने कहा, दुष्ट होने के नाते वह कुत्ता सबसे पहले किसी को छूने तक न देकर उस हड्डी को अपने कब्जे में ले लिया।

आखिर स्वामी विवेकानंद ने कहा, भगवान को जानने वाले उस कुत्ते जो चैन से हड्डी की स्वाद ले रही है, उसी तरह अपने मन में शांतिपूर्वक भगवान को महसूस करते हैं। भगवान को जो पहचान नहीं सकते वे भौंकने वाले कुत्तों की तरह बकवास करते रहते हैं।

जय श्री रामकृष्ण परमहंस, स्वामी विवेकानंद गुरु महाराज की। 🙏🙏

Don’t compare

An elephant and a dog became pregnant at the same time. Three months down the line, the dog gave birth to six puppies. Six months later, the dog was pregnant again, and nine months on it gave birth to another dozen puppies. The pattern continued.

On the eighteenth month the dog approached the elephant questioning, “Are you sure that you are pregnant? We became pregnant on the same date. I have given birth three times to a dozen puppies and they are now grown to become big dogs, yet you are still pregnant. What’s going on?”

The elephant replied, “There is something I want you to understand. What I am carrying is not a puppy but an elephant. I only give birth to one in two years. When my baby hits the ground, the earth feels it. When my baby crosses the road, human beings stop and watch in admiration, what I carry draws attention. So what I’m carrying is mighty and great.”

Don’t lose faith when you see others receive answers to their prayers in what seems like record time.

Don’t be envious of others’ testimony. If you haven’t received your own blessings, don’t despair. Say to yourself “My time is coming, and when it hits the surface of the earth, people shall yield in admiration.”

Do not compare your journey to anyone else’s

Stay blessed my family.

ANCIENT TRADITION OF SITTING IN TEMPLE PREMISES

Question~ After darshan in the temple, sit down on the stairs/platform outside for a while. But why sit for a while? Answer ~ Tradition is that after visiting any temple, we come out and sit for a while on the foot of the temple. Do you know what is the reason for this tradition?

I This ancient tradition is made for a specific purpose. In fact, quietly sitting on the foot of the temple, one should recite a shloka. People of today have forgotten this verse. Contemplate this shloka and share it with the next generation also.
The shloka is like this~ *अनायासेन मरणम् ,* *बिना देन्येन जीवनम्।* *देहान्त तव सानिध्यम् ,* *देहि मे परमेश्वरम्॥* * Anayasen Maranam * Bina denyen jeevanam.* *Dehanth tav saanidhyam,* *Dehi mey Parmeshwaram* The meaning:

Anayasen Maranam means that we should die with ease, without any trouble and never fall sick and be confined to the bed, don’t die by suffering but let our lives go as we go about daily life.
Bina denyen jeevanam means there should be no life of dependency. Never have to be with anyone for support. Just as a person becomes dependent on others when he is paralyzed, do not be paralyzed or helpless. By the grace of Thakur ji, (Krishna ji) life can be lived without being dependent and begging.
Dehante tav sanidhyam means that whenever death comes, let it be in God’s presence. As at the time of death of Bhishma Pitamah, Thakur (Krishna ji) himself stood in front of him. Let life be released while having this darshan.
Dehi mey Parmeshwaram O God, grant us such a boon.

Recite the above verse while praying to God. Do not ask for job, car, bungalow, boy, girl, husband, wife, house, money etc. (ie worldly things), this God himself gives you according to your eligibility. . That is why one must sit and pray this prayer after having darshan. This is a prayer, not a solicitation or begging. Prayer is not for worldly things like for home, business, job, son, daughter, worldly pleasures, wealth or other things, whatever is requested like this is begging. The word 'prarthana' means - 'pra' means 'special’, ‘best’, ‘highest’ and 'arthna' means request. Prayer thus means ‘special and highest request’. The darshan of God in the temple should always be done with open eyes. Some people stand there with their eyes closed. Why close our eyes, when we have come to see? Open your eyes and look at the form of God, nija-swarupa, of the divine feet, of the lotus face, of the shringar, take full enjoyment, fill your eyes with the beautiful nija-swarupa. When you then sit outside after darshan, then meditate on the form you have seen with your eyes closed. Meditate on your own soul within, closing your eyes and if God does not appear in meditation, then go back to the temple and have darshan again.

शगुन का लिफाफा

On an auspicious occasion like a birthday, engagement or marriage, sometimes we prefer giving a “शगुन का लिफाफा” instead of a gift item. But the money we put in the envelope is never like Rs. 100, 500 or 1000; but it is always Rs. 101, 501 or 1001.

Have you ever thought why we add that extra one rupee in the शगुन का लिफाफा 🤔 ? Well, there are four age-old reasons for doing that:

1 > “Zero” signifies an end, while “One” signifies a new beginning. That extra one rupee ensures that the receiver does not come across a zero.

2 > Mathematically, the numbers 100, 500 and 1000 are divisible; but the numbers 101, 501 and 1001 are indivisible. शगुन is a blessing, and we simply want our good wishes and blessings to remain indivisible.

3 > The added one rupee is a symbol of continuity, ahead of the basic amount. It strengthens the bond between the giver and the receiver. It simply means, “our good relationship will continue”.

4 > However, the added rupee must be a coin, and never a one rupee note. A coin is made of metal, which comes from Mother Earth 🌍 and it is considered to be an अंश or a part of Goddess Lakshmi. While the bigger amount is an investment, the one rupee coin is the “seed” for further growth of that investment. Your good wishes and blessings are for the investment to grow in either cash, kind or karma.
