62 False Views   Leave a comment


These are the 62 false views that a Buddha said, from Brahmajala sutta.

The 62 kinds of wrong view (regarding eternity, self, and causality):
1. The one who claims to recall many past lives and believes the self to be eternal.
2. The one who recalls one to ten contractions and expansions and believes the self to be eternal.
3. The one who recalls 40 periods of contractions and expansions and believes the self to be eternal.
4. The one who sees beings rush around, circulate, and re-arise, but ―this! remains forever.
5. The one who recalls a past existence in a heavenly plane where he was subject to a more powerful deva and thus, thinks in this life that the more powerful deva is an eternal, all-powerful God. Such a person proclaims that deva to be the one-all-powerful God, creating or following a mono-theist religion, which is essentially wrong view.
6. The one who believes that certain devas are permanent and perfect because they do not enjoy the pleasures of the senses.

15. The one who evades all questions fearing that he will be caught in his ignorance.

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?

Life Beyond Rainbow   Leave a comment


Is the life that we have been seeing with our naked eyes?  Our belief system compels us to trust on our majorly 5 senses where an eye’s visibility capability highly grant about existence of reality and its surroundings. However, I do not agree totally.

I believe truly that there are other forms of lives: similar/dissimilar to us even in “other phases”. Potentially, other phases are within our surrounding simultaneously living with us together in different electro-magnetic waves and other dimensions, apart from visible rays range, the Rainbow waves. The sun’s electromagnetic spectrum has a wide range with multitude ways of possibilities where life in any form may exist. Those forms of life, you can call paranormal or alien etc.

When a person pass away, we can only see his physical body. A soul finds different wave length to exist on. So, there are enormous chances that there are ways to connect and communicate with them in their wavelengths. Maybe a sorcery or shamanism practices are few paths.

So, the “Soul” exists? Whatever you name for it, yes it exists. To describe it better- A soul is a different form of life than human that adapts to different phases or wave-lengths. It can be confirmed by physical laws of nature, “ Law of conservation of Energy” that Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it can simply transfer from one form of energy to another.

Therefore, our visible eyes may eludes us, our currently unyielding scientific minds, technologies may figure it out of such phantom life forms those lives live beyond rainbow. We are not alone in this universe.
