शून्य से अनंत की ओर

विज्ञान विश्व


अंक, संख्याये, हर किसी के जीवन का एक अनिवार्य भाग! मानव इतिहास से जुड़ा हुआ एक ऐसा भाग जो किसी ना किसी ना किसी रूप मे हमेशा मौजूद रहा है, चाहे वह हड्डीयो पर, दिवारो पर बनाये हुये टैली चिन्ह हों, किसी धागे मे बंधी हुयी गांठे , भेडो़ की गिनती के लिये रखे गये छोटे पत्त्थर या आधुनिक लीपी के भारतीय अंतराष्ट्रीय अंक!

जब अंको की, संख्या की चर्चा चल पडी है, चर्चा का प्रारंभ तो इसके उद्गम से होना चाहीये ना! मेरा आशय अंको के इतिहास से नही है, मेरा आशय सबसे प्रथम अंक से है! सबसे प्रथम अंक कौनसा है ?

शून्य (0) या एक (1) ?

Five Durations Of Time Where Bhakti-Yoga Is Purifying

Krishna's Mercy

[Krishna with cow]“Krishna consciousness can be attained in one second, or it cannot be had even after a thousand births and deaths. If we choose, we can immediately become great souls by surrendering to Krishna, but because we have doubts whether or not Krishna is actually the Supreme we have to take time to dissipate these doubts through study of the scriptures.” (Shrila Prabhupada, Raja-Vidya, Ch 7)

Material life is one attachment after another. With attachment comes separation, which is unwanted. The inevitability of the separation is so well-known that there is fear even before the loss occurs. What goes up must come down, and so death is the certain outcome following birth.

Spiritual life is for breaking free of the attachments. Success is not easily achieved. Even if a person removes objects around them and the need to possess them, there is the chance…

Three Characterizations Of The Bhagavad-gita

Krishna's Mercy

[Krishna with cow]“This Gitopanishad, Bhagavad-gita, the essence of all the Upanishads, is just like a cow, and Lord Krishna, who is famous as a cowherd boy, is milking this cow. Arjuna is just like a calf, and learned scholars and pure devotees are to drink the nectarean milk of Bhagavad-gita.” (Gita-mahatmya, 6)

The greatest Vaishnava has his own tribute of the great work. Many sections of Vedic literature pass along a conversation between Lord Shiva and his beautiful, fair-complexioned, and chaste wife Parvati, daughter of the mountain king.

Their discussions are ideal in so many ways. The role of the husband is to protect. The greatest danger subsequent to taking birth is death. Upon reaching the end of life, another birth is imminent. A guardian who can prevent this near-guaranteed fate for their dependents has met their responsibilities.

[Shiva-Parvati]As a most elevated being devoted to…

Two People Whose Character Did Not Change Through Major Life Events

Krishna's Mercy

[Narasimha-Prahlada]“Atheists like Ravana and Hiranyakashipu had to undergo severe penances before they could flout the authority of the Lord, but ultimately they were so helpless that they could not save themselves when the Lord appeared before them as cruel death.” (Shrila Prabhupada, Teachings Of Lord Chaitanya, Ch 23)

A new life. An addition to the family. Increased responsibility for the members. In the immediate term there is the need for providing food, clothing and shelter. The infant can barely do anything on its own. It requires attention even during times of sleep.

In the bigger picture there is maturity to keep an eye on. What will they do when they grow up? Will they be able to support themselves? Will they avoid pain and heartache? Can they steer clear of the most damaging activities in life?

It is understandable to wish for wealth…

Four People Who Are Eligible For The Supreme Destination

Krishna's Mercy

[Prahlada Maharaja]“Among the Daitya demons I am the devoted Prahlada; among subduers I am time; among the beasts I am the lion, and among birds I am Garuda, the feathered carrier of Vishnu.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-gita, 10.30)

It’s big news. The new leader of the spiritual institution has reversed course. The past policy was in place for centuries. No one dared challenge it. It was accepted, blindly. Isn’t that what faith is? If you can challenge, if you have doubts borne of logic and reasoning, then why not stay outside the religion? Faith is the dividing line between the believers and the atheists.

The change the leader has made relates to who is eligible for salvation. Previously, only those who acknowledged their faith in the institution could expect to see the best afterlife. Now it is supposedly open to everyone. How is this…

How Do We Recognize A Realized Soul

Krishna's Mercy

Friend1: Approach a tattva-darshi.

Friend2: English, please.

Friend1: Consult someone who has seen the truth.

Friend2: Isn’t that relative? What kind of truth? That two plus two equals four? Everyone knows that.

Friend1: The Absolute Truth. That which is beyond duality.

Friend2: What is the benefit of approaching such a person?

Friend1: They help you to similarly see the truth.

Friend2: In what manner should the approach be made?

Friend1: Not in a challenging spirit, that’s for sure.

Friend2: Why not?

Friend1: Because that’s not how we learn things. The students in first grade don’t sit there and challenge what the teacher has…

Three People Who Kept Their Belief In God Even Through Bad Times

Krishna's Mercy

[Queen Kunti]“I wish that all those calamities would happen again and again so that we could see You again and again, for seeing You means that we will no longer see repeated births and deaths.” (Kunti Devi, Shrimad Bhagavatam, 1.8.25)

You did everything right. You prepared. You were responsible. You prioritized. You paid attention. You took the task seriously. You put in the required effort, even going beyond. Every preparation was made for the arrival of success.

In the end it didn’t happen. You failed. Things just didn’t go your way. This happens to a lot of people, in a variety of circumstances. Sometimes they go the extra step and pray to a higher power. They make a direct plea:

“God, you know that I don’t ask for much. I want this. If you could make it happen, I would be so grateful. I…
