    Meditaion 43 It is wiser to play the fool

    Meditaion 43 It is wiser to play the fool

    It is wiser to play the fool.

    Consider the Lynx: She pretends she is blind.

    Disguise your ears -- now you are deaf.

    Be polished, but look dull among the dull.

    And you will survive.'

    - Lal Ded



    Maybe the time has come to challenge yourself with the words of Lal Ded. She is one of the few female mystics of her time (1320-1389) and also one of the few spiritual leaders who defied classification into one of the major religions of her time. Some say she blended Islamic and Hindu thought. Others say she brought a humanist view to Indian religion. Still others see her as the standard of post-Buddhist Kashmiri philosophy.

    You may want to explore each of these possibilities as you study her careful metaphors. All I ask is that you do study them. She spoke clear simple words but carried a powerful message. She gives guidelines for life, but continuously seeks the meaning of the afterlife.

    O Foolish Yogi

    O Foolish Yogi

    You tricked people by keeping your hair long and unkempt, drugging yourself into those deep trances. You made false pilgrimages in a show for the gods and goddesses.

    O Yogi! In your greed, you forgot the discipline of Yoga. You did not love Truth so all your years of hard work produced nothing.

    O foolish mind! You cheat others when you pretend to be one of the holy.

    You can not reach bliss just by wearing their clothes.

    You worship stones, but God is not inside a stone



    Empty religion does not grow fruit. You have wasted years worshipping stones and became weaker because of it. By acting holy without meaning it, you achieved nothing but were not ashamed

    O foolish intellect! You did not understand the True Spirit and have wasted your life in vain.|21|.

    - Guru Gobind Singh (Swayyas, Dasam Granth)

    Guru Gobind Singh was the 10th and last of the Sikh Gurus. Since his sons were all killed by India’s mughul invaders, he turned over religious guidance to a written text, the Adi Granth. In its current form as the Guru Granth Sahib, it features the work of Sikh Gurus but also includes verses from a variety of prophets and poets of several other religions too. It is revered as one of the world’s greatest spiritual texts even today.

    We should all be inspired by the value Guru Gobind Singh gave to literature. He not only compiled the definitive Guru Granth Sahib but also wrote a great deal of his own poetry in a variety of languages. And if you visit India, you can visit his poetry court (Kabi Darbar in Paonta Sahib) where his appointed scholars collected and transcribed an extensive collection of classic literature, myths and folk tales from Punjab and other surrounding lands. Their work was very likely the greatest epic work of Punjabi literature, but is stuck in controversy. Some claim that the entire collection was lost. Others claim that only a part were lost but some stories were compiled with the Guru’s own writings into the Dasam Granth.

    Meditation 40 Deh Shiva 10th Sikh Guru

    Meditation 40 Deh Shiva 10th Sikh Guru

    O Great Shiva, grant my wish -- that I will never be afraid to do good,

    and never be afraid to fight evil.

    With your courage I will win.

    Put yourself in my mind because I want to praise you

    And when my life must end, it will be while fighting bravely.



    -- Guru Gobind Singh

    This is the most famous poem of the 10th Sikh Guru, but is truly a puzzle. It excites the people of Punjab even though it is written the language of another land. Sikhs sing its verses as holy prayers even though it describes a Hindu epic. It has become a uniting anthem even though it comes a text so controversial that it has deeply divided the community for the past 300 years.

    Many of us are surprised to see how much Indian spiritual literature refers to military battles. We expect religion to support peace and criticize fighting. But the great Hindu deities are commonly famed for the fighting skills that protect the innocent. In myth, Rama and Krishna are worshipped for their victories in war. And in Sikh history, Guru Gobind Singh is honored for fighting India’s Mughal oppressors.

    Both Hindu and Sikh religions are based on calmness, not violence. So you might interpret violent spiritual writings as a symbolic fight for inner peace. But this approach often ends up with complicated, awkward translations of simple direct words. Take some time to see it from both sides but don’t expect a clear answer; this debate will continue for a long time.

    Achieve The State of Yoga

    Achieve The State of Yoga

    A person achieves the state of yoga when he has renounced all material desires, he does not take his actions to satisfy the senses, he does not take actions purely for enjoyment. What you call ‘renunciation’ is the same as yoga; you are connecting with the Supreme. No one can become a yogi unless he renounces the desire to first gratify his senses. ||2||

    -Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 5)

    The Bhagavad Gita is one the most widely accepted guides to the Hindu religion. In it, Krishna teaches us how to live our lives to free ourselves from the suffering of the physical world and escape reincarnation.

    It tells us Karam Vairagyay Yoga will help us reach the ultimate goal of living by emphasizing the importance of renunciation. You should not be attached to the pleasurable results of your efforts. Simple sensory pleasures are a short term goal. Free yourself from the birth/death cycle by focusing your attention past the senses.

    Meditation 38 Pulling Love

    Meditation 38 Pulling Love

    Men will work hard to reach their desires. Women go to their husbands and cling to them. They mingle and intertwine, both pouring out and pulling love from each other. This is nature that you see across all Heaven and Earth.

    -Rig Veda 1.105.2

    You might find it hard to think of Hinduism as a religion. It contains many different beliefs and subdivisions, covering politics, health, and military beyond just spirituality and religion. Hindu philosophy is based on the Vedas, a set of compilations of prayers and poetry.

    The oldest and most important of these, Rig Veda, was developed at the decline of the Harrapan civilization (c. 1000 BC) by the new ruling class of the Indus River Valley to summarize the words of the Gods and to comment on daily life. By no coincidence, it also put themselves in the highest position of society. Brahmans used these words to solidify their leadership of India as being ordained by the Gods in developing their caste system.

    You can chant the verses of the Rig Veda to your God or you can interpret the hymns as guidelines to life. Its words will tell you about honor and sacrifice, humility and pride, life and death. But it will also talk about the physical world -- animals, food, even sex and drugs. In some cases, you will be surprised how sexual behavior is told in detail. Don’t block out the descriptions of sex acts; I only ask that you interpret them in context of being guidelines to all parts of life.

    Meditation 37 Bahá’u’lláh

    Meditation 37 Bahá’u’lláh

    Through his presence, God has abolished the concept of “uncleanness” where some things or people might be called impure. He is Ever-Forgiving and Most Generous. All things were cleaned in the sea of purification on the first day. This is a gift from His kingdom that includes all the worlds. Join forces with the followers of all religions to proclaim the true words of the Highest Power.

    - Bahá’u’lláh, Kitáb-i-Aqdas

    The Kitáb-i-Aqdas was revealed in its entire form to Bahá’u’lláh in the mid 1800’s. The Baha’i value the wisdom of all sacred texts but consider the .Kitáb-i-Aqdas as the purest message from God and consider it their most holy book.

    Bahá’u’lláh is the most recent of the world’s major prophets and so is possibly the most forward thinking as well. He emphasized one common message to all the world’s religions and resisted putting people into castes or sects. Today, you can see that its members come from all races and countries. The many rules inside the Kitáb-i-Aqdas do not try to divide humanity but instead improve it -- combining all paths to reach the same goal. Forget your differences and open your mind to all forms of enlightenment that surround you.

Jarring

Of the few I listened to, I found the background music jarring. The content issued like commands. Nothing to bring you
