When Will Man His Ways End…When Will Atrocities On Animals End?

whenwillman2017_fbms

In Support Of All Sentient Beings In Creation

The uprising in Tamil Nadu in favour of lifting the ban on Jallikattu is indeed appallingly uncivilised, tilting towards most frenzied and bizarre. The protesters, completely bereft of kindred sentiments, callously display banners that say ‘Save Jallikattu’…showing zilch consideration towards this stately animal that intrinsically prefers its solitude. This movement has the support of the so called educated public too. Does this mean that education in this day and age in our country is deficient in morals and the principles of peaceful co-existence with all forms of life? Shouldn’t culture exude refined ethics of Help Ever, Hurt Never…Love All, Serve All…causing no harm to co-inhabitants of the land? Shouldn’t the placards instead read ‘Save The Bulls From Torture And The Egocentric Ways Of Man’ thereby offering true allegiance to the words human, humane qualities and humanity? It is tragic that sensitive people of wonderful Tamil Nadu insensitively call Jallikkatu a sport…citing tradition. This is not a sport but a tragic and  indecent pastime that disregards the feelings of a living being while immensely bewildering it with actions amounting to harassment akin to mauling and molestation. The plight of the acutely stressed animal is remorselessly overlooked for deplorable moments of pleasure and vainglorious amusement of man.

Are we as human beings so lacking in ‘cruelty free’ ideas and initiatives for ‘entertainment’ that scores of people try to deliberately goad, pin down, frighten, traumatise a living being that has in no way provided any provocation and holds no grudge towards members of the human species? Isn’t such behaviour inhuman, beastly and barbaric?

The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
– Mahatma Gandhi

Being placed on the top rung of the ladder of creation, the onus is on man to protect, look after, shield and shelter all other creatures on the planet. Animals, birds and aquatic beings have feelings too, the same as other citizens of the world.

Thus these questions naturally follow…
Is it rational to be loyal to a tradition that reeks of brutality and does not spread the message of human values?

Is it acceptable for spiritual leaders of repute to support ‘rituals’ that are against the ‘spirit’ of India and of Ahimsa?

Isn’t sport a recreational activity that gives pleasure and refreshes the people taking part in it? Those who participate do so willingly. Is this and other such events that involve animals a legitimate ‘sport’ where living creatures are forced to engage in a one sided game where there is no fun in it for them and only perverse amusement for the ‘unevolved’ minds and ‘heartless’ hearts of some individuals from the human race? How sporting are human beings then? Doesn’t this only serve to attract negative karmic repercussions? Has conscience been relegated to the backseat? Bulls represent the mount of Lord Shiva and should be revered as such.

An intense prayer resounds from the depth of the soul –
May consciousness expand…may compassion reign supreme in the hearts of all human beings…may human kind know the blessing of the word kind. May people of earth grow in awareness that the suffering and pain felt by any living being is the same. May these universal chants find a place in the human daily life –
Samastha Jeeva Sukhino Bhavantu…Aum Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinaḥ, Sarve Santu Nirāmayāḥ, Sarve Bhadrāṇi Paśyantu, Mā Kashchit Dukh Bhāgbhavet…

Care for life, Concern for Nature and Respect/Reverence for All Beings in Creation is the code of conduct for this beautiful land and its diverse populace which intrinsically includes its magnificent flora and fauna.
And this is the true unique tradition/culture to be valued and revered.

An earnest appeal to the Honourable President and Prime Minister and the praiseworthy judges of the Supreme Court to let this ban on Jallikattu remain so as a decree upholding righteousness, ahimsa and maitri bhav…kindred harmony.

Have You Ever Wondered Why, Beloved Mother Sai…?

haveuever1i miss You, Swami…my Beloved Mother Sai…
i miss You,
Have You ever wondered why…?
You are Omniscient…All Knowing…
Yet, i ask this of You…
Have You ever wondered why…?
The tears never did dry, Mother Sai…
…they keep spilling over drenching my heart…
…utterly futile are any attempts to placate, mollify…
…appease or cajole…
…silently they protest the excruciating blow You dealt the soul…

haveuever2Have You ever wondered why, Enchanting Sai…
Why i will never recover until i…
…see You again…
…or merge in You…?
Even if i merge in You before i see You again…
…to life i may not have bid an appropriate adieu…
…too much of regret…so much to rue…
Have You ever wondered why, my Precious Sai…
…i do not feel content, satisfied or fulfilled hitherto…?
It’s because i never had my fill of You…

haveuever3Have You ever wondered why, my Dear, Dear Sai,
i do not feel You actualised Your Mission completely…
…as yet…
That the era of Sathya Sai has much more in store…?
Your Words…Your Commitments…
There is more, more, more,
This i know for sure deep within my core,
Since each word You uttered is a commitment…
How can i not await the fulfilment,
Of Sathya…
…the Word of Sathya…the Truth of Sathya…?
Or else nothing will be true…nothing will hold true…
…and that cannot be…
…as it would the spirit of creation subdue…
…freezing the Mystic Opera…the present Cosmic Revue…

truthofsathyaHave You ever wondered why i keep calling You to return,
Why i ceaselessly cry out to You to reappear…
…resume Your Mission, Oh! Almighty Sai…?
Have You ever wondered why i seek Thee,
Thy Kingdom Come, Lord Sai?
Are You not the sole remedy, Mother Sai?
There is none but You,
The globe in its prevailing chaotic state needs You…
…the mineral, plant, animal world needs You,
Humankind needs You…
…their link with being ‘human’ and ‘kind’ to renew,
Mother Nature, Mother Earth truly needs You,
…we need You…i need You too,
So come, why don’t You…?
End this intermission,
Command the transformation…

thykingdomcome_2017
…the mental reform and the soul’s perfect renovation…
There is no rhythm left…no harmony that one can identify,
Come, rectify peace upon Earth,
…Your Kingdom fortify…reunify…
Surely You know, Oh! Loving, Loving Sai,
Your Presence does instantaneously synchronicity magnify,
Oh! Thee…the Greatest Avatar…
…the Supreme Monarch of the Universe,
Do not delay any more,
Come now, so i don’t have to sigh…
…and keep wondering why…
…why…why…why…
…i am still existing here in this tumultuous milieu…
…without You, Beloved Mother Sai…

Radha – Eternally Aparampar…Apar…Her Love Has No Par…

radhaeternallyaparambar_fbmsIn every breath till it lasts…
…Radha knows and will know only You, Oh! Krsna,
In every sound that whispers by in this Cosmic Repertoire…
…Radha is aware of only You, Oh! Krsna,
What Radha feels for Her Krsna…
…no words nor any expression can ever define,
The only sentiment that is crystalline, Oh! Krsna…
…is that Radha is Your Limitless Expansion,
Radha is Your Hladini Shakti,
Your Internal Potency…
Radha is Your Anandadayini Shakti…
…exuding…bestowing…
…eternally effervescent and transcendental…
…joy of the soul and…buoyant bliss,
Through the wisps of the material mist…
…that does its best to cloud the quest…
…for the cause and the purpose…
…the raison d’être…
The axiomatic truth is this…
Radha is Prakriti…You are the Supreme Purusha,
Radha is Your Karuna…Your Matchless Compassion,
Radha is that Universal Heart so full of Daya…
For She knows Herself to be Your Hrudaya…
Radha is Your Radiance…

radhaisyourradiance_fbmsFrom Radha does commence the rain of Your Grace…
She is that Vital Force…that Absolute Essence…
…That Magnificent Shimmer that drenches and bathes the Universe…
…incessantly…
Radha is Your Vocal Silence…Your Eloquence,
Radha is Your Wordless Vibrance…
Radha is Your Incomparable Melody…Your Perfect Rhythm,
The Pranava that holds the Cosmos together,
Radha is Krsnamayi…forever saturated in exquisite Mahabhav…
…in the ecstasy of mystical sentiments…
…feelings fascinatingly drenched in highest devotion…
…replete in immaculate emotion…complete in pristine passion…
Thus She remains abso‘flute’ly Yours, Oh! Krsna…

radhaiskrsnamayi_fbmsAnd Krsna…?
Krsna is…Radha…

…the Supreme Being playing the role of a Superlative Devotee…
…the Creator and His Wondrous Leela…His Sportive Play…
…Creation is His Unique Ballet…
The Entire Creation is in Radha…
…and Radha is forever in Krsna…
……a matchless union…limitless by far…
Radha – Eternally Aparampar…Apar…Her Love Has No Par…

radhaandkrsnatogetherNow, knowing all this what can one say…
…about the Sri Sathya Sai Avatar…
…Whose love for each being…
…embracing every bit from micro to macrocosm…
…through all the realms and spheres…has no par…?
Radha and Krsna together is the Sathya Sai Avatar…
Yet,
In each of us lies hidden a Radha…and the fragrant Bhav of Radha,
So too, may we all evolve with intensity towards a way of life…
…that intently strives towards creating…
…an exalted and extraordinary memoir,

Attracting, enchantingly drawing the Lord…as did Radha…
Come now, Oh! Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba…Oh! Beloved Sai Maa,
You are being adoringly entreated to come…
…as creation longingly awaits You…lovingly beseeches You…
…as does Sri Radha…
Radha – Eternally Aparampar…Apar…Her Love Has No Par…

come

23rd November 1926…Celebrating An Incredible Blessing!

sai23112016_tpr_3

Soaked in a cesspool of material malady,
Mother Earth was enveloped in a colossal dearth,
And thus she sighed, cried and waited with bated breath,
For the Advent of Sathya, of Truth a sacrosanct birth,
So too did Time yearn and let its heartfelt aspirations set sail…
…for good times to prevail…
…for honesty and harmony…peace and righteousness…
…for values to flourish and reign once again…
Countless beings kept beseeching –
When will we be celebrating an Incredible Blessing…?

Encircled in layers…
…Heaven shook with the impassioned prayers…
…of the pious, the meek, the troubled…
…the harassed, the distressed as well as the wise,
…and those ever so devout…
…their earnest need lay bare beyond any doubt,
Of compassion there was a severe drought,
Humanity lay slack,
Human hearts did love and loving kindness lack…
A collective plea reverberated through the ether…
…to the Supreme Sovereign it was urgently sent…
…a profound request for a Glorious Advent…
…a Divine Descent for the benefit of mankind…
…that man may find the way to be kind…
… cleanse and purify a sullied mind,
Then on,
Rejoice in celebrating an Incredible Blessing…

sai23112016_tpr_2Time had witnessed the Royal Presence of Sri Rama,
Then too, the Magnificent Appearance of Sri Krsna,
Now it desired to be enchanted once more,
Thus, gathering a zillion incantations…
…it knocked intently at the Cosmic Door,
God’s Presence on Earth seeking to invite,
That all may exult in sheer delight…
…experience an expansion of consciousness…
…and kindred feeling…
…amidst grand gaiety and rhythmic devotional singing…
…continue forth celebrating an Incredible Blessing…

Gracious was the response,
The Absolute One chose not one but a triple incarnation,
And at Shirdi was the first manifestation,
Then,
Replete with the most holy substance and sacrosanct essence,
The Divine Consent blessed many a fervent invocation,
Puttaparthi was bestowed with a Transcendental Benediction,
A supremely beauteous Celestial Expression,
Hitherto unknown to any part or person in creation,
The Creator, the Ultimate Source,
The Monarch of the Cosmos,
Chose to bless Earth and grace her populace,

Even as musical instruments did play…
…on their own a melody so fine,
…each ray of the early morning Sun did softly shine,
The environment did mystically intone and resound with Aum…
By and by an astonishing sanctified moment was to dawn…
…privileged magnificently to have had the Lord tenderly drawn…

sai23112016_tpr_3

Erelong this day would eternally to the Avatar belong,
The Beloved Lord chose to be born…
Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai was born…
All that was mean and dreadful were commanded to – Be Gone…
…smiles soon replaced the faces of those woebegone and forlorn,
Forthwith remembering this day…
…and the immense boon that it did bring,
The Chronicles of Earth would forever chant and sing –
‘23rd November 1926…Ceaselessly Celebrating An Incredible Blessing!

We now intently…intensely seek from deep within our core…
…an encore…an encore…an astounding encore…
Come, Precious Lord…devotedly, adoringly…we await Thee…
…grant darshans yet again gloriously…
…walk upon earth and amongst us…hear our call…
…bestow upon us all –
This Exquisite Blessing…This Incomparable Blessing…
This Incredible Blessing…
…that we may once again ecstatically participate in commemorating…
…in celebrating…
This Most Incredibly Incredible Blessing…

Woman – The Pillar Of A Value Based Society


woman_the_pillar_of_a_value_based_society_fbms_01Made in the image of Shakti,
So empowered instinctively and energised dynamically,
To fulfil her supreme purpose –
To establish and sustain all around harmony…
Born to remove any and every kind of woe,
Woman is a symbol of all things human…
…personifying Grace and Quality –
Woman is the true pillar of a value based society!

Women are the makers of the home, the nation and the world. – Baba

Creation and Creativity.  Man and Woman are so created to complement each other. In alignment, each has their function to perform and while doing so rhythmically, in resonance with the Divine Plan, together they form a whole. To build something one needs a sturdy foundation. Then on, to support any structure one requires powerful pillars.
That foundation…that support…that power of creation and creativity has been bestowed upon every woman! She embodies infinity, she characterises eternal qualities and exuding all this positively, she quite compellingly impacts eternity.

There is nothing in this world that women cannot achieve. – Baba

woman_the_pillar_of_a_value_based_society_fbms_02A society is made up of innumerable individuals, families, people from different walks of life…an intermingling of colours and flavours…strata and status…faiths, views, beliefs, cultures and economics ever so diverse. Doesn’t it all need a binding thread? And much more significantly, don’t these individuals have their origin in the womb of a woman?
Ethics is what makes a society thrive…and a woman of quality who believes in equality has it in her to uphold and make these ethics come alive.

Only if the women come up in society, the whole world will turn sacred.
– Baba

A woman is born to play myriad roles: a daughter, a sister, a friend, a wife…integrating acts which continue on even after marriage while cementing new associations…and even as she plays out these roles she constantly exudes the highest undertaking – that of a Mother. Whether she goes on to have a child or not, every woman is a born mother, her mission intrinsically is that of a mother…a tender caregiver. She is blessed with many hidden facets along with a natural flair for compassion, care, concern, nursing, making amends, giving, forgiving, bringing together, blending, and harmonizing. She simply needs to be mindful, centred and receptive and tune in as she experiences this adventurous expedition called – Life.
As a daughter she puts her parents on a pedestal, reveres them, yet, gives gentle guidance whenever necessary. As a sister, friend, colleague, teacher she will not hesitate to step in, once again channelizing righteousness.
However, what about her role as a Mother?
Upon the female of any species, whether amongst the animal, winged and aquatic or humankind, lies the singular onus of rearing the newly born. Most often, especially in all other species, she patiently rears the young ones all on her own – protecting, nourishing, nurturing, freeing. Freeing subtly, gently, firmly refers to demonstrating, drilling, inculcating ‘Life Skills’.
In the animal kingdom, in their natural wild habitat, these skills take on a different meaning altogether from what it denotes in the more complex kingdom of man.
Deep is the innate responsibility of the woman, of the human mother, to inculcate moral codes, basic principles and behavioural conducts. Children are not only the future citizens of the globe, but they are the inheritors of all the natural resources, the vast mineral wealth, the magnificent hills and lush plains, the grand glaciers, refreshing rivers and gushing streams, the surging seas and mysterious oceans, the dense forests, the exotic flora and wondrous fauna…and as such they grow up to become the custodians of all the abundance, the keepers of Mother Earth.
Intuitively keeping in focus this salient truth, women as mothers, aunts, grandmothers not only do all they can to promote the physical wellbeing of their children but they foster the mental, emotional, psychological and spiritual progress too, equipping them with ethics that will regulate the flow of their conscience, consciousness and overall growth.

woman_the_pillar_of_a_value_based_society_fbms_03Women embody the aspect of Mother Nature and the ancient sages found solutions to problems in life by recognising this truth. – Baba

Woman and Poise. When there is accord between the heart and the mind there is an inner harmony. The world is raging with unrest for the poise within is lost. Desires and greed are drawing, dragging, and clasping humans and humanity into the dark fathomless maelstrom of no return. It is imperative that a balance be restored and a vital equilibrium maintained. The world needs beautiful minds. The inherent feminine qualities need to come to the rescue. Outer beauty is of no worth if not accompanied by a beautiful mind ensuring not only positive thoughts, words and deeds but a synchronicity between them.

Women are the heirs of our ancient culture. Culture means refinement.
Women are the torch-bearers of refinement and they are toiling for the emancipation of the nation.  – Baba

Woman and Love. Temperatures are soaring, rivers are going dry leaving the soil ever so arid…for there is no love left in the human heart.  Women are naturally conditioned to love unconditionally for that is their inborn motherly instinct. They excel at it. As mothers, they are the first guru, guide and teacher of their children assisting them to consciously be aware, beware of unfavourable influences, trust the inner voice and evolve. This process of learning all things wise and wonderful, of loving and being exposed to the human values of Sathya, Dharma, Prema, Shanti, Ahimsa…of loving selflessly begins in the womb itself.

Women have satvaguna in ample measure. They are by nature helpful, tender, compassionate, humble and trustful. – Baba

woman_the_pillar_of_a_value_based_society_fbms_04Woman and Values. Essentially a woman is a reservoir of goodness. She is the backbone of her family…and she quite logically extends this ‘family’ kindred sentiment to not only include in a micro way the society she lives in…but goes on to, in a macro way, extend her ‘TLC’, her know and knowledge, her tending abilities to envelope the vaster global civilization…in a true spirit of oneness. In her was placed the womb…a foundation for the human race…in likeness to the Cosmic Womb – the genesis of creation.

The womb of mother symbolizes mother earth. – Baba

woman_the_pillar_of_a_value_based_society_fbms_05The Feminine Soul is eternally grateful for having being chosen for this role of bringing forth individuals of steadfast substance exuding the essential essence of ethics that forms the basis for a principled progress as well as a peaceful coexistence. A woman who understands the depth of this privilege puts her heart to her task sincerely, while passionately wooing the values and safeguarding a lifelong alliance with them.  Per se, reverentially, she knows herself to be profoundly linked to all in the feminine sphere, the echelons in the ‘Motherly Hierarchy’…Divine Mother of the Universe, Mother Nature, Mother Earth, Mothers of varied species…wherein the focal point, the spotlight is always away from the self and focussed towards the cultivation of selfless attributes, enhancing patience, tolerance, forgiveness and unconditional giving…sustaining it all and wholesomely surviving.
In the human species this feminine aspect is called – Woman. And, in her has been placed the courage, capacity, capability and competence to value all life, to value living, to value values, to value ethical progress ultimately advancing towards a higher way of thinking, existing and being.

Primarily, pre-eminently, quite vitally a woman values being a woman! Thus, a woman having found her own place of value under the Sun is untiringly committed to relentlessly be the pillar of a value based society.
That is how the Universe blessed her to be.

woman_the_pillar_of_a_value_based_society_fbms_06Dharma can be made to occupy its position in society and restored to its pristine glory only by women. – Baba

(As a precursor to the celebration of the Sacred Day of Advent, in honour of and to recognise the contribution of women, Beloved Mother Sai declared 19th November to be respectfully and joyfully observed as Ladies Day. The above lines are a tribute to all feminine beings in creation…winged, finned, four and two legged. May they know in some unique way that their presence and essence is being appreciated and applauded.)
