Origin of Philosophy   1 comment


   Is the Father of Western Philosopher, the Socrates, the follower of Buddha’s education?

The Timeline is the most important to put for the efficacious truth of Western and Eastern Philosophy. Both looked at the mind to be researched, rest physical world are just a mirror, projections or bi-products of our monkey nature of mental Thoughts, Logic, Ideas, Inquisitiveness, Concepts on politics, Morality & Ethics, Consciousness, Independent, Reincarnation, Courageousness, Knowledge, Virtues, etc.

Looking the widely accepted timeline is the Birth Period of Jesus has separated the BCE and CE (AD). The Eastern Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama – Many modern scholars believe that the historical Buddha lived from about 563 to about 483 BCESocrates (469/470-399 BCE) was a Greek’s profound philosopher and is considered the father of western philosophy. The trade route from China to Asia Minor and India, known as the Silk Road, had been in existence for 1,400 years at the time of Marco Polo’s travels (c. AD 1270–90). It came into partial existence about 300 BC, when it was used to bring jade from Khotan (modern Hotan, China) to China. By 200 BC it was linked to the West, and by 100 BC it was carrying active trade between the two civilizations. At its zenith in AD 200 this road and its western connections over the Roman system constituted the longest road on Earth. The most important timeline to note is the Partial existence of the Silk route of 300 BC, means it was existed long before.

In both Eastern and Western hemispheres’ countries, there was a heavy influence and blinded deeply of agency’s (institution) god influence in our society to slave people with Fear and Greed, it is Control of people like herdsman does. Countries, People were in distressed, depressed, controlled by Closed Minded Elites, where individuality was lost. Both Buddha and Socrates, who have a profound intellectual influence to open their mind ‘wisdom’ on an ancient and modern society.

The Great Emperor, Ashoka, ruled form 268 BCE to 232 BCE and became a model of kingship in the Buddhist tradition. Jesus, who himself was the Buddhist monk. We know that that Buddha had sent his disciples to different directions and we can assumed to correlate that some disciples or householder follower or buddha’s words must have somehow passed to all the way to the Rome, and Greece through Oral tradition at least, by walking the improperly developed the Silk Route, which later when many people used to travel through silk route became a solid route. It is my hypothesis is that When Silk Road was improperly recognized during its initial developing phases, people used to travel and during this time-the messenger of buddha’s knowledge got propagated from the east to the west. Those Messenger could be any buddhist monk, or merchants, who circulated not only the silk and culture, but such a profound knowledge of Buddha. The Silk Road derives its name from the lucrative trade in Chinese silk carried out along its length, beginning during the Han dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD). When Socrates came in contact to hear such wisdom words full of enlightening education that could break bondage of social and mental’s limited sphere to open consciousness out to realize oneself and ontology of existence itself. Socrates must have certainly been delighted brightly, and little did he know more, he went onto research further through discussion and analysis, which is also one of the buddha’s path towards augmenting wisdom. Right then, he was more hungrier for intellectual knowledge and brightness to taste the wisdom and shared it to people who came in contact with him like Plato as students. Socrates’ thirst of seeking mind was his ability to explore more on the path towards raising consciousness.

Within the Metaphysics, Plato, the student of Socrates, stated that Socrates was occupied with the search for moral virtues, being the “first to search for universal definitions for them”. Such a universal definition of moral virtues only comes from the enlightened one, the Buddha.

Looking at time frame, from my study analysis of both time-frame and their philosophy, it appears to me that Socrates, like Jesus, was the follower of Buddha’s education. Socrates is a son of a stone mason, so who could easily come in contact with disciples and open to new ideas by coming in contact with whoever travelers in town. Simple and honest Socrates frequently says his ideas are not his own, but his teachers. So, the buddha’s disciples, merchant or hearers of buddha’s education, must have somehow come in contact to him is my hypothesis.

If you read the book Abhidhamma propounded by Buddha, who lived before Socrates, and Jesus Christ. This book is nothing but all about Mind. This is the first detailed book documented ever in the human psychology. Socrates came later.

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?

4 Elements of a Matter   Leave a comment


Many Religions, old philosophers, including Aristotle believed that all the matter in the universe was made of four basic elements: Earth, Water, Air and Fire. Even in the Limbu religion called Mundhum, these five matters have been stated to be existed after when the universe was just evolved from the noble silence in the deep space or it has stated motion in Space. This Limbu religion is so true that its philosophies and scientists have even calculated and understood the motion in space when universe was created. After which a consciousness was borne. These elements were acted on by two forces: gravity, the tendency for earth and water to sink, and levity, the tendency for air and fire to rise. I thoroughly understand and appreciate their insight in understanding the matter. However, I would just like to highlight yesterday’s thoughts in today’s perspective and come to following conclusion.

  1. Aristotle means to say that any matter has states of matter quality in its nature as Solid, Liquid, Gas and Plasma States, as ascribed by today’s physics.
  2. The gravity and Levity is meant to be the properties it hold of temperature due to heat. In Aristotle’s sense, Earth and Water means gravity, his explanation is meant to relate straight that for example, let’s take a water as a matter, its nature in low temperature keeps molecules close together enough to claim gravity nature, on the other hand, the same water with higher temperature changes to gases and super heat will transform into much higher states of a matter, called Plasma state.
  3. Aristotle believed that matter was continuous. I think Aristotle is trying to explain that there exists The Law of Conservation of Energy. My argument is that matter is never a continuous, however the energy can be, because it propagates from one form to another form, where matter is never continuous. Therefore, throughout the history, still, there’s a debate in scientific, religious circle whether Universe is essentially static and unchanging universe, the question of whether or not it had a beginning. I strongly believe that it is ever changing than anything else. Only the way we observe the universe from one dimension of a time is letting us to perceive from this disposition. Theory of relativity of time is directly proportional to velocity, therefore, the greater the speed of velocity, it will be easier to observe that universe is not a constant, it is rather continuously changing. The every dT, the instant change as miniature as possible in time difference travelling in a vast space of universe is enough to feel it.

It also makes me to ponder whether the soul of a life is nothing more than energy, which exactly follows the Law of Conservation of Energy.

Yesterday was a symbolic representation, and today is the age of science, which I am just trying to correlate, which by means should not remain confuse about it along the arrow of time. My conclusion, Like Aristotle and Limbu religions that they had understood the very best of science in his time, in his dimension.

Philosophy in Life   1 comment


The dithering fickle and vacant minds of children are always maneuvered fundamentally by their circles. A child is restrained to touch a hot pot. A theory is put into kids’ mind that hotness may burn; not a pragmatic knowledge. It is just an epitome how children are brought up. The parents have “experienced” and it is “theorized” to children. Don’t you know, the children fall on the abyss between them? So am I grown up in this way, however, I do not reprimand to parents because that’s their best effort trying to bring up in their best possible approach.

“Interacting Philosophy” is a thought provoking that abets to whet life. Human mind can simply permeate every nooks of imagination, exchanging of mind. Philosophically unguided may meander us often misleading to unprecedented unwholesome deeds. An interaction with an erudite confidant can assists in understanding of not only morality, but even the cogent approaches in life. In my experience, the interchange of philosophy and reality are heaven and hell. It abetted to convey a revolution in me. We read, searched, imagined, interpreted, analyzed, criticized manifold books, songs, movies, religions, achievers, sciences, fictions, our daily life forms, material and spiritual world, actions and patterns etc in this very short life. Despite of above all, an altercation revived when coming to the real world. It is to discriminate the difference between “experienced” and “theorized” ideologies. We all people are embodied with some knowledge and experience that may not be omnipresent.

The Brain is like an empty hard disk of a computer and it runs in accord the type of installed operating system. What is being fed to our brain is the vital part of your activity today? It absorbed, compelled us to act in that manner; mesmerized with the information in our brain. I was very insular person. With the wisdom of philosophy through interaction with my confidant; the disguised, doubtful clouds of my life were cleared out; provisioned me with new spectacular perspectives, a lateral thinking of life. I started to perceive this world with multi-views dynamically. It’s difficult to edify in a class.

Philosophy is a theory and not to anticipate as a finale fanatically. It surpasses in the niche of everything as far as you can simultaneously. It is this philosophy that also paves and endow your life in balance way. And, only way is let it flow whatever comes in life but try best to acquire as much as you can with a peace in mind. Just let it flow; no matter what thinking this is my best because there is no god in sky that comes to rescue you. It is you, just you who can save you. If the god comes, then where is god for those pathetic people on Earth? Why there is disparity in and in between religion, society, countries, life. Human beings possess dual characteristics of god and devil. Find your way out from this intangible life by understanding philosophy.

Of all the wisdoms, I acquired to conclude that requisition of all human being is the austere peace, happiness till we live. A farmer’s life is a blissful, elegant life; everyday, he reiterates busy working in farm and sleeps a goodnight well. He/she lives life in indigence rather than falling into so called urbane, an austere and a murky composite life.
