The wealthier man should give unto needy

Considering the course of life here after

For riches are like chariot wheels revolving

Now to one man they come , now to another

Bharata Natya sastra

The Natya shastra has 37 chapters  and 5569 Slokas. It has also explanatory prose passages. It’s author is Saint Bharata, but originally Bharata meant an actor and dancer . It is dated variously between second and third century BCE. Some date it 4th and 5th century CE.

It is the basis of classical Hindu dance, music drama and is known as the Fifth Veda on account of its mythical origin from Brahma, the Creator,,who is believed to have composed it from elements of the four Vedas.

Date: 4-9-95 notes

No pain no gain

United, we stand

Divided, we fall

(Compare Bharati Ondru pattal undu vazvu)

It is Sun, it is Fun

Waste not want not

Go from zero to hero

Haste makes waste

Why fear when I am here

Forward ever backward never

Learning Spanish in Spain is no pain

Be the best, beat the rest

Feet in the Past

Heart in the Present

Eyes on the Future

Chandogya Upanishad 

Where there is creation there is progress

Where there is no creation there is no progress

Know the nature of creation, where there is joy,

There is creation.

Where there is no joy, there is no creation

Know the nature of joy

Where there is the INFINITE there is joy

27-8-1995 notes

 Of what use are words of wisdom to the man who is unwise

Of what use is a lamp to a man who is blind

Here the essence of thousands of sacred books; to help others is virtue

To hurt others is sin.

Xxx

 A man rises or goes down by his own actions; like the builder of a wall or as the digger of a well.

xxx

The narrow minded man thinks and says

This man is one of us; this one is not, he is a stranger.

To the man of noble soul the whole of mankind is but one family.

 Xxxx 

Maitri Upanishad

 Samsara, the transmigration of life, takes place in one’s mind.

Let one, therefore, keep the mind pure, for what one thinks that he becomes.

This is the mystery of eternity.

Xxxx
