Supremely Auspicious   1 comment


For 12 years, Inquisitive humans and god realms have discussed what is the auspicious in this world, but no satisfactory thoroughly answer were given by anyone. But ultimately, everyone decided to request the most exalted, enlightened and unsurpassed one, the Buddha.

Thus have I heard. On one occasion the Exalted One was dwelling at Anathapindika’s monastery, in Jeta’s Grove, near Savatthi. Now when the night was far spent, a certain deity whose surpassing splendor illuminated the entire Jeta Grove, came to the presence of the Exalted One and, drawing near, respectfully saluted him and stood at one side. Standing thus, he addressed the Exalted One in verse trans. in english as below:

Not to Associate with Fools, Associate with Wise.
Honor, the Worthy Ones. Thus, is Auspicious.

Dwell in a suitable Locality. Graceful with Past Merits.
Set oneself in the Right Path. Thus, is Auspicious.

Listen Everything, Be Skillful, Well-learned Disciplined,
Speak Pleasantly. Thus, is Auspicious.

Be custodian to One’s Parents.
Cherish Wife and Children. Thus, is Auspicious.

Do Generous Donation, Righteous in Precepts, Keep Brothers and Relatives,
Act Blamelessly. Thus, is Auspicious.

Acquit Bodily, Speech and Mental defilement, Stop Intoxicating &
Aware & Steadfast in Universal Welfare Law Intelligently. Thus, is Auspicious.

Pay Homage, Be Humble, Stay Pacified, Display Gratitude &
Timely Listen to Buddha’s Words. Thus, is Auspicious.

Practice Forbearance, Be Obedient and Pay visit to Impartial Ones
& Often Discourse the Buddha’s words. Thus, is Auspicious.

Practice Austerity, Abide Sensuality Precepts, Realize the Four Noble Truths insight,
Attaining Enlightenment. Thus, is Auspicious.

Benefits & Loss, Fame & ill Reputation, Praise & Criticism, Happiness & Sadness.
This Eight worldly vagary Affairs should not shake Mind; Stay without Afflictions;
Not to Engage on Greed, Hate and Ignorance; Be Intrepid.
Thus, is Auspicious.

Those who act in this way
Are invincible in all circumstance,
And establish in happiness everywhere,
These are the Highest or Greatest or Supremely Auspicious.

Hungry Souls   Leave a comment


Our hungry soul is looking for a high positioned job, abundant money, a few owned car, a flamboyant house and we believe, i’d be very happy in this life. But have you ever seen such people happy? in fact, I do not own worldly neither of all above. But still my hungry soul is in search of something different.

No doubt, in a soliloquy, a person always is always in search of unsurpassed heavenly happiness, the ultimate purpose & meaning of life existence. Our hungry soul is like a thirsty deer’s mirage illusion of water, while running far distances in vast desert.

In search we entangled ourselves into swinging back and forth between both high and low lives that reverberated with high and lows feelings as our hungry soul is looking for a bodily and mental resting place, even though we know, “There’s no such place actually to rest, we need to keep moving”. But where and how far? I need to make a decision and find a Resting house for my hungry soul.

i had glanced at dogmatic, conflicting religious books, educated formally, saw few mystical & magical powers. i needed something that pervades my simple hungry soul with a real happiness. A simple person spends most of his life in making a life to survive for food, education, house and few momentary amenities surrounding to display flamboyantly. Everyone’s soul actually needs a Resting place in midst of densely populated society and hungry fulfilling desires. In such an intermediary and transient playful mind, I’ve found an answer how we, human need to live a life by understanding basic rules of happiness as follows.

  1. Life is a Mirror and Third Law of Newton’s Law: Since happiness is our goal, so, no matter what i will not be a greedy, anger, anomaly, hatred or at least no increase them for now; & learn to forgive, care and love. Love & care nurtures. Everybody needs a space, so i will respect others’ soul, interest, thoughts, capacity. All my actions will have an unconditional Love. Be the first to apologize. When you act or pray, do with 100% determination.
  2. Circle of Love: Encompass yourself with positive forces (good books, movies, friends) that inspires, aspires my soul.
  3. Today and Now: Yesterday is gone, i’m a new person today and i’ll be better tomorrow.
  4. Every individual’s action is a reflection of a society structure. so i will make a positive vibe reflection in society of kindness, empathy and forgiving nature as an individual effort.
  5. Intellect solves Problems;
    Knowledge expands Horizon;
    Experience gives you a realization;
    Love Nurtures;
    Forgiveness Heals & cleanse Soul;
    Faith gives you a Strength
    Trust gives you a Bonding;
    Patience teaches to remain Strong;
    Hope gives you a Second Life of chance.
    Every new Second of minutes is to change Mistakes.
  6. If my actions, thoughts hamper any other living or dead soul, i will be unhappy. The first victim of my actions originated first from my thought processes. But i want to be a Happy and Share my Happiness to others.

Until i find a satisfaction to my hungry soul, i will keep blogging. what do your hungry soul is looking?
