Shouldn’t our festivals be violence-free

Violence free festivals

We need to take a moment and think, is violence part of religion or a medieval culture? Can killing someone innocent, lead us to peace?

The ISIS considers living beings as objects and beheads them, aren’t we doing the same by showing no respect to ‘life’?

We are guiding our kids through the ‘killing’ ceremony, do we want them to get ‘used to’ killing. Do we want India to have people who are ‘used to’ killing?

Let’s be bold and brave and say “I’ll be non-violent, if it means I'll go to hell, so be it. But I will not spread more violence on this planet.”

The world is watching, it’s time to kindle the love within’ :)

Unveil Thy Face

Who art Thou that walkest

before me and behind me

And in the hour of sleep

standest in watch beside me?

Wilt Thou not unveil Thy face whose

love hath already made me captive?

Freely I am bound to Thee;

Freely do I remain bound;

For Thou hast poured upon me Thy

unbounded love unasked.

Unasked will I make my offering unto Thee.

~ Swami Paramananda

Inspiration

Thou art born of Spirit,

Not created by thought,

Nor moulded by fancies,

Thou divine spark of unfathomed origin!

As vision Thou enterest in the heart of the prophet;

In the soul of the poet Thou dwellest as raptures of inspiration;

And in the throat of the singer as music.

Soul art Thou in our life;

Life art Thou in our body.

Who can know Thee, Thou subtlest of subtle?

How can we ever know Thee,

Save when Thou dost come to us in Thy glory

And grant unto us our sight?

~ Swami Paramananda

Fire Of Truth – Part 2

Disciple

Compassionate Sire, what nature is this fire

Teach me how to kindle it.

Master

It is flame, without smoke;

It burns without fuel, save what is not visible to the eyes.

It burns in the mouth of the wise.

It dwells in heart of love.

It is the perpetual altar fire where saints pour their oblation of worship.

It is eternal life.

It dwells in thee, though thou knowest it not, dormant, hidden at thy inmost recess.

When thy uncovered heart will catch the spark that cometh out from the mouth that speaketh the Fire of Truth,

Then will be lighted in thee this smokeless, eternal Flame.

~ Swami Paramananda
