    The barren land of Kurukshetra 

    Arjuna looked around himself. The Sun was shining brightly on Krukshetra. The scared land of Kuru. It was from this place, where it all began….. He saw an endless sea of warriors stretched perheps till end of this world. This was not his main concern. He knew what the end result was. He knew himself from within. He knew it right. All the sages and heavenly spirits were ready to assist him in this final battle. Arjuna sensed his Gandeeva. It was still shining as it had been gifted to him by Lord Shiva. The Gandeeva had the sacred powers of the mighty Mahadev. On top of it, it had a deadly combination of Narayan Astra and Brahma Astra, ready to strike terrors in most mighty enemies. Arujna had faith in his weapons. He had blessings of his Guru Drona….

    Guru Drona….Suddenly, Arjuna felt weak.

    Guru Drona. The learned Brahmin warrior. The old man who had both the blessings of Saraswati and Mahakali. The same warrior, who had granted Arjuna the power of wisdom and knowledge a time ago. The teacher of Arjuna.

    Arjuna remembered all his childhood days. The first day in Dronas ashram…. The first fatherly affection and guidance, unknown because of  Pandus death…… The first tones of Freedom in wisdom and sacred Vedas, all learnt at Dronas ashram….. The first bow…..The first arrow….The eye of bird…Eklavyas sacrifice….The blessings of Guru…..The victory at Draupadis Swayamwar…The insult in court of Hastinapur…The Promise….The pain from where it began….

    Arjuna felt weak in his moral strength on seeing the thin, frailed Drona. After all, Drona was his Guru. How can one kill a Guru? Guru is as important as the Creator, the Protector, the Destroyer.How can it be possible?

    The confident hold on mighty Gandeeva loosened a bit..Arjuna looked at Brahma Astra. This as the greatest gift of the Guru to his favourite disciple. The ultimate protector in War. Any man possessing it was considered God. Drona was one of amongst them. How selflessly he granted the ultimate weapon to Arjuna. He had complete faith in Arjunas capabilities. More then what he had in his Son Ashwathama.

    ……Will I be a slayer? Am I a killer? What is use of a kingdom, if I will be a sinner? I will burn in seven Hells till eternity. Killing the Brahmin is a sin, that is unforgiven by God. On top of it, its Drona !!!! My guru. The first guide in this life after Kunti. Can I do it???…….

    Arjunas mind was beginning to engulf in a major crises.

    Krishna smiled to himself. The time was about to come soon…..

    Enlightment,a new hope 

    मी आसाच आहे……
    धर्मासाठी झुंजावे…
    झुंजोनी अवाघ्यांसी मारावे…
    मारिता मारिता घ्यावे राज्य आपुले…
    देव मस्तकी धरावा,
    अवघा हल्लकल्लोळ करावा..

    Men are haunted by the Future. Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we are gone, and wonder who we were, how bravely we fought, how fiercely we loved?

    I call myself a Peaceful Warrior… because the battles I fight are on the inside..

    All Karmas proceed with the force to either remove pain or gain pleasure
    Experiencing pleasure and pain, we roam the streets of Samsara

    Where there is Birth, there will be certain pain
    There is certain Death, and nothing to gain

    Not knowing light from darkness we roam the streets of misery
    In beauty there is ugliness
    In ugliness I see beauty too
    What a repulsive body that I have which oozes grime and filth
    These carnal desires do I find unfulfilling

    Where there is Birth, there will be certain pain
    There is certain Death, and nothing to gain

    Sadashiva Samarambham Shankaracharya Madhyamam
    Asmadacharya Paryantam Vande Guru Paramparam

    सदाशिवा समारंभम् शंकराचार्य माध्यमं
    आसमादचर्यां पारयनतम् वन्दे गुरू परंपरामं

    Finally the Truth is seen
    Unknowable once to me but now known to me
    What an error it is to take myself to be what I am not

    No words can reveal me
    Yet words alone set me free
    The beatitude revealed through desciplic succession

    No delusion for me
    I am the ever free
    No illusion for me
    I am the ever free

    Finally, the desires are Ash, I smear those ashes on my forehead and I free myself. Bhasma on my body..Bhasma on my soul..I am liberated….the Pain turns to Love….a new hope..Maya reveals her true form…

    Maya is inevitable…

    I submit myself to Maya..

    Maya has set me free…

    The revelations are known…

    May there be peace..

      As one of the noble truths of buddha say,

      all human existence is painful, eliminate the pain by eliminating the cause.

      however, nothing is permanent.

      Buddha was suffering from acute depression…But do you know that Buddhas teachings did protect Indian sub continent from maniac Mongols till 1962 India China wars??

      The only way to prevent any sorts of conflicts is to accept the things as they come to you without asking for its purpose or to think about its consequences. The only truth is the Desires we have with us. Denying Desires for some imaginary reasons is root cause of sorrow, and its funny that in todays marketing age, people can cash on sorrow too..if you can cash it on, sorrow is fine, else submit yourself to Maya unconditionally, rest assured, everything works in your favour…

    Karma 

    Whatever happens, happens…

    We create, We destroy

    A form, nobody knows….

    Desires create, Desires destroy

    Still, Karma spares no one…

    The Eternal Sacred Flame..

    Always burns…

    Feel…Understand…Learn….

    Look into mirrors of your soul, love and hate are one and all…

    Sacrifice soon turns to revenge and believe me, you would see the face who will say – I love you, I’ll kill you, but I will love you forever..

    These were the lines on my gtalk status, and the girl I was meeting for almost 2 years decided to abandon me. True there was no offline relation between us, nevertheless I was fool to associate my emotions with someone who was never mine. ‘Pure Friendship’ Duh.. How can she be so cruel, so cold hearted, so mean? So much that it brought tears to my eyes..after a long time, I remember – Tears dont taste good, they have got lot of sorrow filled in…I hate em. A man hates tears..And by the way, if purity is so weak that it gets broken so fast, then I hate it too..(Tears…cries…) 😦
