Storyline has no bottom line

[The beauty of the storyline is that it has no bottom line. It is like a meandering river, finding its way as it goes on.] @nishaVijesh

I am never bored and I am not afraid of being alone. I have honed my skill at storytelling and earned some fame on this account. I am not fussy as far as food is concerned

why handwritten letters are so much better than a normal text message

A must read. Even @smritiirani's astrologers will be floored. @mitalisaran

The Need For An External Form Of the Divine

Modest women never tell others the sweet words of love whispered into their ears by their fond husbands, nor of their connubial experiences. A foolish woman thought, in her extreme pride of her husband’s love, that if she told others how dearly her husband loved her and illustrated this with the words he had uttered in her ears and the happiness she has derived from his company, people would admire her and congratulate her on her good fortune. When she began broadcasting these experiences of hers, people laughed at her and mocked her and her own relations avoided the company of this immodest woman. Eventually, even the husband began to hate the wife for such immodest behaviours on her part. Thus she lost everything and spent the rest of her life in utter misery.

Similarly, good Sadhakas never tell others of their Guru’s Upadesa or their spiritual experiences. But foolish Sadhakas, proud of their initial spiritual experiences, begin to advertise them in order to draw public attention and admiration. But alas, the public discover his vanity; and he becomes the laughing stock of the people. Brother-Sadhakas shun his company as he is a man of vanity. Overweening pride makes him lose even the initial contact with the Divine that he had and thus he forfeits the spiritual experiences granted to him. Thus abandoned by all he spends the rest of his life in utter misery.

O Sadhaka! Keep your Guru‘s Sacred Upadesa and your spiritual experiences a secret. Then you will grow spiritually and reach the goal quickly.

In the Indian context the Veda is the greatest, sublimest and most authentic odyssey of cosmic unfoldment that promises to link up man's destiny with the One Purusha, tad ekam. The Vedic mantras are revelations granted to their authors, apauruá¹£eya, the transliterations of Vac, the first manifest form of the Infinite and Eternal.
It is true that the vision of the Rishis is couched in a language that is too difficult to decipher; it is camouflaged in symbols and figures, but for the initiates it lays itself bare, as the Veda itself puts it, as a bride to her lover. The allusions and legends, images and enigmas all then fall in line to signify a coherent and consistent psychological truth underlying the universe. The mind by itself is incapable of comprehending the in- ~VMR
