Fly high my little bird
Fly high for the whole sky is yours
Don’t get lost in the heights though
Don’t lose the way back home
Stay on the path
Fly to the goal
See the things from a great height
Fly high my friend
Know that you are not alone
Take care of the wings
Let not the winds and storms change your directions
Fear not of the heights
Just roll out your wings fully
Fly high my angel
For you can guide the path for others
Search what is best
Rest for a while
Eat what is right
And Fast for a while
Keep flying and
Once you feel complete
Once your Zest is full
Come back for home.
‘Coz the journeys are fun
and sweet and just great
but nothing like the rest and love and comfort of the home.
Don’t get lost in the nights in the sky
Don’t get dazzled in the lights of the street
Keep a keen eye on the Sun and the Moon
And your very own abode on the Earth.
Fly high my bird
‘Coz that’s what you are meant to do.
I could’t go to the World Culture Festival 2011, in Berlin. But the Visit to Delhi WCF 2016 was greatly compensating. The event saw remarkable performances by the best artists.
It was a who’s who and I am very glad that I was there.
Guruji’s presence and speeches were just too good.
Prior to that I spent relentless months in Ashram volunteering with equally enthusiastic team of Ashramites. The whole atmosphere in the Ashram exuberant with confidence that the whole world belongs to us and we belong to the whole one world family.
I met many saints, senior sadhaks , excellent sevaks and some very charming and astoundingly beautiful angels too! The days past in a great speed and amazingly the time seemed to have come to a standstill in the same happening. I made many new friends and discovered many old friends too.
Guruji kept the rhythm of the activity high and peaceful and yet so very charming.
Once in a lifetime, a very memorable event, thanks to the excellent teamwork by all the organizers, volunteers, good wishers and alike.
One fine evening my friend introduced me to CEO of Arcadix and a whole new avenue opened up in my life.
Arcadix is a very interesting company, providing adaptive examination suite to European clients. Based in Europe, the company has a Development center in Bengaluru. My work was an interesting collaboration with Cambridge university. I learnt lot of psychometry – science of measuring ability of a student and difficulty of a question – and used it for application in the company.
The company is really cool and filled me with lots of knowledge. The productivity went up higher as team expanded, I made many new friends and it was a great team.
We played Holi together, had great time on fuss-ball table and celebrated colleagues birthdays with lots of fun. Friday evenings was a party and game time. Company HR organized one cool picnic too!
The company went up as we got new clients. We completed our projects much before the due date. Overall it was a great new learning and experience.
Asti(It is ) Bhati (It knows) Preeti (It is loving ) Naam and Roopa (has name and form) are five attributes of consciousness. First three are common in all beings. Last two make the diverse world around.
Rich share the food. Richer still share the power/responsibility/credit/Fame. Even richer share themselves. Your richness depends on your ability to share.
Come to the Guru. Your loan/burden will be taken off and much more will be given for you to use!
The truth that does not nourish love has no sense and the love that cannot withstand the truth is not true love. When one is assured that the love is so strong that the truth can neither break it nor cause bitterness, then the truth prevails and love shines.
Truth has judgments, but true love is beyond judgments. Thus true love makes you weak and yet it is the greatest strength.
Saw Pune Ashram! It was wonderful to see it on the sides of Triveni Sangam. The architecture is innovative and non-standard, it has creativity in every small detail. Reminds one of the Bangalore Ashram.
Went to Alandi first time. Place where Sant Dnyaneshwar took Samadhi. What kind of state of mind he must be in, at 18 years of age, to walk in and leave the body in the room. A complete knowledge of world, spirit, situations around, a state of dispassion, detachment from body and all worldly activities. and much more i guess.
The darshan of padukas for few seconds brought some shift in the mind. There are some trees there which are apparently present for 700 years. While quoting the Samadhi, another saint, Sant Namdev says, now the Sun has left. Dinkar Lopala.
That which is yours, will never leave you. Love and Compassion are your nature. They will never leave you.
Love for what is, is happiness. Love for what is not, is sorrow.
All you have to remember is how very fortunate you are. You become unhappy when you forget this.
For a moment, remove yourself from the world. And see everything as happening. And then put yourself back into the world. And see that everything is happening.
Rest and activity are complimentary. Wanting to rest makes you restless.
You are bigger than your emotions. Soften your emotions and sharpen your intellect.
When you are ready to learn something new, you are young.
People are stuck on three cities. Ego, Karma and Illusion.
Follow your heart.
Avadhan. Remembering the sequence in which things are told.
The adventure continued working for college courses with an ever enthusiastic team of teachers and volunteers. They were so driven for the knowledge, the commitment and continuity was amazing. Then I moved to Physics again, this time teaching some MSc students on a temporary basis. I taught many topics, the Lasers, Mathematical methods in Physics, Computational methods, Electronics and general physics labs. It was rediscovering the physicist in me.
As I was getting less time for research, I left teaching, and joined few research meets and did a project at IISc. the group there was very systematic and worked very well. Astronomy has a bright future now, with lots of missions coming up and the fundings being made available. Scene in India is also on improvement.
Life in Ashram has many colors and entering the Ashram gate feels like opening a freezer on a sunny day ! The whole service attitude of the Ashramites is different than many others elsewhere. The things work in a harmony that is unparalleled elsewhere. People come and fill their jars of life with happiness and love. They move on and the Guru keeps disseminating knowledge like the Sun radiates his light.
