Nyanapana

A very interesting quote from the Nyanapana:
randu naalu dinamkondoruthanne thandiletti nadathunnathum Bhavan
Malikamugaleriya mannante tholil maraapu kettunathum Bhavan !

Though I cannot give the precise translation of this Malayalam quote, I have tried my best. Here it goes
'It's God who can tranfer you from the streets to a King, and it is God only who brings an elevated person to the world of pain ' .This again reminds us that if ego is in, God is out and if God is in then ego is out. Like I have always beleived that we are puppets in the hands of God, success , fame or money should never give us the head-weight label.

There you go again.

So,that means humans dont have free will?
We are just lifeless dolls playing to tunes of the 'almighty'??

Our very ability to think and do the things we need to, proves existence of our free will.Each one decides and dictates his course of life.

Cant we live without the concept of religion and god, live by caring and sharing in the process prospering...I believe we can!!

Have a happy day :-)

Jinu: No offence !! yeh kaisi dushmani hai yaar!! See.. whether or not you believe in God, you have to remain down to earth or else it things will get out of hand.. and you will become a two faced person. In my case since I believe in God.. it was convenient to explain the proverb. But the main point I wanted to highlight is that Success should never change the real you.

Hey Great Going Neha,

Very wise indeed.
God is the ventriloquist and speaks through us, shows us the path and guides us. Its good to follow him to lead a successful and happy life as he showers his unadulterated love .
Humility and modesty would probably stop you from falling since it doesnt let you get higher and beyond control, and if you dont acquire this then THUD!!

Love,

Devika

i agree... u don't even have to believe in "god" to know that u cannot let ego rule u. what some call god and others call humility are very similar concepts.

Neha Sasikumar said...

Thanks mami :D

Achali: Ok.. in a way , ya.

we are the one who create bad days as well as gud days in our life..........making a god part of it...is a stupid thing....

Neha Sasikumar said...

Vishnu Visakh S said...

dont take it seriously just a discussion topic

Neha Sasikumar said...

For some it could be their hardwork, for some luck, for some dedication, for some celebrity family... for me it's God. It's only about preception and beliefs. If you beleive that you are responsible for your success.. then let it be that way. But it's not right to tell someone who beleives in God that the supremem power doesn't even exist.

Vishnu Visakh S said...
