Guru Purnima Special: Guru Paduka Stotram by Rishi Nityapragya with lyrics

 

अनंत संसार समुद्र तार नौकायिताभ्यां गुरुभक्तिदाभ्यां।

वैराग्य साम्राज्यद पूजनाभ्यां नमो नमः श्री गुरु पादुकाभ्यां॥१॥

कवित्व वाराशि निशाकराभ्यां दौर्भाग्यदावांबुदमालिक्याभ्यां।

दूरीकृतानम्र विपत्तिताभ्यां नमो नमः श्री गुरु पादुकाभ्यां॥२॥

नता ययोः श्रीपतितां समीयुः कदाचिदप्याशु दरिद्रवर्याः।

मूकाश्च वाचसपतितां हि ताभ्यां नमो नमः श्री गुरु पादुकाभ्यां॥३॥

नाली कनी काशपदाहृताभ्यां नानाविमोहादिनिवारिकाभ्यां।

नमज्जनाभीष्टततिब्रदाभ्यां नमो नमः श्री गुरु पादुकाभ्यां॥४॥

नृपालिमौलि ब्रज रत्न कांति सरिद्विराज्झषकन्यकाभ्यां।

नृपत्वदाभ्यां नतलोकपंक्ते: नमो नमः श्री गुरु पादुकाभ्यां॥५॥

पापांधकारार्क परंपराभ्यां पापत्रयाहीन्द्र खगेश्वराभ्यां।

जाड्याब्धि संशोषण वाड्वाभ्यां नमो नमः श्री गुरु पादुकाभ्यां॥६॥

शमादिषट्क प्रदवैभवाभ्यां समाधि दान व्रत दीक्षिताभ्यां।

रमाधवांघ्रि स्थिर���क्तिदाभ्यां नमो नमः श्री गुरु पादुकाभ्यां॥७॥

स्वार्चा पराणामखिलेष्टदाभ्यां स्वाहासहायाक्ष धुरंधराभ्यां।

स्वान्ताच्छ भावप्रदपूजनाभ्यां नमो नमः श्री गुरु पादुकाभ्यां॥८॥

कामादिसर्प व्रजगारुडाभ्यां विवेक वैराग्य निधि प्रदाभ्यां।

बोध प्रदाभ्यां दृत मोक्ष दाभ्यां नमो नमः श्री गुरु पादुकाभ्यां॥९॥

What are the Signs of Love?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji, signs of love

When you love someone you don’t see anything wrong in them. Even if you see some fault in them you justify the fault and say Well everyone does it, it is normal.

You think you have not done enough for them. The more you do, the more you want to do for them. They are always in your mind.

Ordinary things become extraordinary. For example: A baby winking at grandmother.

You want them to be yours exclusively.

When you love someone, you want to see them always happy and you want them to have the best.

You get hurt even over small things.

- Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

What is a Panchayat?

Vishalakshi Mandap Art of Living

You know our ancient people said Panchayat. It’s a very beautiful concept of Panchayat. All cases would be solved right there. In Panchayat, there are five types of people.

One who analyzes the past, another one who gives direction to the future, third one maintains the equanimity and the fourth one who adds some humour in the situation and fifth one some compassion. The Panch devatas.

These are four type of people we find in society, those who are very sharp and very creative, like the Sun, those who just maintain and manage like Vishnu and those bring transformation and drastic change like Shiva and those who adds some humour and lightness to the air, like Ganesha and the Devi, the ladies who also should be part of every Panchayat because the lady brings her own angle of compassion. So when these five people used to sit, they used to solve all the problems.

~Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Ji

Can marriages take place within the same Gotra?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Answers

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Ji: This time when I went to Haryana, I met some scientists who had done some good research which showcased how their genes were so good because they did not marry within the same Gotra. They demonstrated how maximum medals in sports were won by sportsmen from Haryana. So this is what the research said. Even in animal science this is followed. Also you should not marry siblings or close relatives. So from a scientific point of view this looks logical but then our Gotras are so ancient and have expanded so much that I don't think it is right to put too much weight on it. For instance if you are from the same Gotra but are from Haryana and Tamil Nadu, then it makes no sense to talk about Gotras then. But yes, if your from the same region then it is better to avoid marrying in the same Gotra.
