Name - Fame

Many people in this world always in the work of gaining name and fame. They are important. But one should not sacrifice one's own self opinions. Lets see what the great personalities are saying about Name and Fame.

Fame is foolish, it is pointless, meaningless. Even if the whole world knows you, how does it make you richer? How does it make your life more blissful? How does it help you to be more understanding, to be more aware? To be more alert, to be more alive ? --- Osho.

“Really Hagrid, if you are holding out for universal popularity, I'm afraid you will be in this cabin for a very long time” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

“Do not yearn to be popular; be exquisite. Do not desire to be famous; be loved. Do not take pride in being expected; be palpable, unmistakable.” ― C. JoyBell C.

“I figured it is always better to be unpopular by your own choice.”― Tom Upton, Vanished.

“Get over it, Roo. If you have friends who actually like you, you’re popular enough.” ― E. Lockhart.

I don't care whether people like me or dislike me. I'm not on earth to win a popularity contest. I'm here to be the best human being I possibly can be. ----Tab Hunter.

Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character. --- Horace Greeley.

Avoid popularity if you would have peace. --- Abraham Lincoln

When people laugh at Mickey Mouse, it's because he's so human; and that is the secret of his popularity. --- Walt Disney

I realized I'll be more happy than now if I abandon the desire for name and fame.

I, in the path of Dharma, Day1


The only Path - The Path of Dharma. . .

Since long time, I'm continuously defeated in my own hands. The reason is at some time I'm becoming a slave to my senses and mind. Many a time my mind is giving place to the senses. As a result, failure has become a close friend of mine. I tried so many times to control my mind. But I realized, the practice of controlling the mind should not be 'certain' but 'continuous'. When I once again faced the defeat, my mind will usually get very strict and bring all the great qualities and rules into practice again. They are good for few days. Only few days. Later as usual habit, these will power to practice these qualities will eventually become weaker and more eventually they slowly disappear from the mind. At the same time, evil thoughts, ugly thoughts, dangerous thoughts will replace in place of the earlier. As a consequence, I have to taste the defeat once again. This is a cyclic process in my life since few years. I'm unable to come out of this cycle to purify my mind completely every nook and corner. 
There is a great manifestation of lord Vishnu as a complete human being called as Rama. Ramayan is all about Rama's life. I listened to Ramayan from great sages. Rama is a human being without even a single and small bad habit. 
How could Rama has achieved it, being a human like me? 
How Rama could have controlled his mind from anger, greed, lust, likes and dislikes, being a human like me? 
What is the strength of Rama behind such a great resisting and controlling ability, being a human like me?
How Rama has won the war with sensual pleasures without any defeat, being a human like me? 
What made Rama such a great man, being a human like me? 
As the manifestation of Vishnu as a pure human  being in the form of Rama, could able do this in the sense, Lord Vishnu wants to say, 
Even I can do this. 
Even I can control my mind and purify it. 
Even I can live like Rama.
We decided strongly from the core of heart to become addicted to Good qualities.
We decided not to move an inch from this pace.
A decision for the life time just like Lord Budha.
In his search to ultimate truth Lord Budha has took a oath. That is,

Ihasane susyatu me sariram
tvagasti mamsam pralayam ca yatu;
Aprapya bodhim bahukalpadurlabham
naivasanat kayam atah calisyate–


“Let my body wither away in this seat, let it be reduced to mere skin, flesh, and bones, but I shall not move an inch from hence till the highest enlightenment is gained.” 
Yes, Just like that. In my case a 'mission of purifying mind and heart'. In short, to attain 'Chitta Shudhi'. Keeping mind alive in great teachings always. Listening, Reading and Practicing is that only path. The path of Rama. That is Ramayan. Closing a slave life. Starting a new era to be good. This is possible by only following the path of Dharma. As Rama is called as,
Ramo vigrahavan dharmah,
even you should follow the same path like Rama. The path of Dharma. That is only the path to attain purity of mind. Attaining 'Chitta Shudhi' is my ultimate goal.

Do not waste time . . .


Wasting the valuable time merely causes lot of damage to once future. Hence, Do not waste it. Do not sit idle. Do something worth-able. Something useful. Time is very precious. Do not waste even a half second. Still you have to learn so many things. Read so many good books. Do so much good on this earth. Practice so much good.  Time is God. If you utilize in a proper way, it adds more value to your life. Otherwise, it adds more value to your death.  Hence, do not waste even a single second of time.

Spread Love to everyone . . . Conflict with no one . . .

If you spread love. You receive the love. If you spread love, you will be happy. I'll be more happy spreading love. You'll be even more happy by receiving love.
And its been so many years you lost your smile and laugh. Don't know where, when and how you went away from them. Remember, you are here just to smile always, to laugh always and to be happy always and in all ways. I try beyond my abilities not to conflict with others. I try even more, to be friendly with everyone. Do not try to discover the mistakes in others, of course, though may be there are. But there is more good in man. Focus on it. Look others from the angle of wise and good. As a result, you'll be happy l, and even others too because of you. Hence, you achieve your third goal of your goals for this year.

Viveka-1 from Vivekananda

"In my first speech in this country, in Chicago, I addressed that audience as ‘Sisters and Brothers of America’, and you know that they all rose to their feet. You may wonder what made them do this, you may wonder if I had some strange power.
Let me tell you that I did have a power and this is it — never once in my life did I allow myself to have even one sexual thought. I trained my mind, my thinking, and the powers that man usually uses along that line – I put into a higher channel, and it developed a force so strong that nothing could resist it."
- Swami Vivekananda in a conversation with Mrs. George Roorbach: Complete Works – Volume 9

No complaint, No quarrel, No conflict . . .

I came here for a purpose. To perform my job properly and to achieve a goal. I should not forget this. I should remember only this. This only one thought in mind and nothing else. I specially should not think about others causing inconvenience to me. I don't want to complain anything about them, even a bit. I can complain and argue with them but not now. Because my mind cannot be trained for quarrel instead Love. Once if I create quarrel or conflict with somebody, to get out of it, minimum of two is required for my mind. I don't want all these. I came here for some purpose. I should see my business and go from here. There is no space in my mind for others. May only peace prevail in my mind.

Whats going on around me. . .

Shiva shankar is still in too many troubles and confusions.
Nagesh sir has injured  severely as he was drunk and driven, lost job. But yet changed nothing.
 

Operation 'Anger' . . .

Lust, anger and greed. These three are doorways to enter into the hell. I'm practicing to get out lust. But the second, anger, is already attacking me severely and unknowingly. Some or other way I'm slowly getting rid off the list but anger is very much stronger than lust. It is very hard to win over it.  I have to increase my abilities now. I start 'stop talking. It means I talk less. Very less. Not only with tongue but also with mind. May only Sri Krishna fill in my mind and other than that is restricted to only papers not mind. There is a certain unavoidable reasons behind the activities of others. Just accept them. If they are really wrong, let them know it  with cool words. Lust pollutes the mind. But anger destroys the peace in mind. As a result mind will become mindless. It is so many days that anger is continuously attacking on me. Fortunately I at least come to know this by today. I'll  try beyond my abilities to train my mind not to touch the anger. I train my self not to find mistakes in others instead I love everyone unconditionally. I pray to God for her divine grace on me to achieve the same. May love anrd prevail in my mind.
Om Shanti, Shanti, Shantih . . .
Om peace peace peace.

Stack overflow . . .

Since past few days, there is a continuous disturbance in my mind. I trying to stop the fighting of thoughts on my mind. Many a time I failed due to lack of proper clarity in mind. When I enters in worldly activities Love is disappearing from my heart. Just for silly reasons, my mind going throwing an array index out of bounds exception where my mind is getting filled with too many thoughts. As a result, wherever I go, conflicts are following me. It is the time to sing the following song everyday, and memorize its meaning everytime.
Song:
Maithreem Bhajatha , Akhila Hrujjethreem,
Atmavadeva paraanapi pashyatha
Yuddham thyajatha, Spardhaam Tyajata,
Thyajatha Pareshu akramamaakramanam
Jananee Pruthivee Kaamadughaastey
JanakO Devah Sakala Dayaaluh
Daamyata Datta Dayadhvam Janathaah
Sreyo Bhooyaath Sakala Janaanaam
Sreyo Bhooyaath Sakala Janaanaam
Sreyo Bhooyaath Sakala Janaanaam.
Meaning:
With friendship please serve,
And conquer all the hearts,
Please think that others are like you,
Please forsake war for ever,
Please forsake competition for ever,
Please forsake force to get,
Some one else’s property,
For mother earth yields all our desires,
And God our father is most merciful,
Restrain, donate and be kind,
To all the people of this world.
Let all the people, live with bliss,
Let all the people live with bliss,
Let all the people live with bliss.

May the friction gets void in mind. And may peace and clarity of thought prevail in my mind.

Victory over Self . . .

What you listen, what you memorize, what you smell, what you think, what you speak will surely influence your life. But many of them straightly routes to the failure. Be careful with your senses. Especially the mind. It is very dangerous than any dangers. And one who masters his mind will master everything in this world.

One by One


It is too much confusing to do thing all at a time. Learning to do things one after another to improve quality and reduce pressure on mind. How much small thing it may be, doing one activity at a time will give good results and also pleasure. Only one thought, all my powers combined together at one place, will yield productivity. 
Its not how busy you are,
Its that how productive you are.

Discovery of True Smiles. . . 2


Premises:
Amazed looking at that smile.
It hacked my mind for a while.
Premises:
Those eyes are like lightening lamp,
Made an impression on mind like a stamp.

Secunderabad Railway Station:
A 55 year old lady walking on the platform along with her husband. She has not observed the water on the platform and were walking slowly. As she stepped unknowingly in the water, her leg has slipped and she fell down in seconds. Her husband and near by labor has helped her stand up and she slowly sat on a bench to take rest. After 2 to 3 minutes her husband asked "How are you feeling now?". Exactly at that time, she, that 55 year old lady smiled and said I'm O.K. What a smile! I was amazed. Even in such a situation, she smiled not just from lips but from the core of the heart. I wish my self to laugh like that even in any type critical situations.

A strong and Life Time Resolution. . .


I always want to be like a child. Children are god. There are no words in this universe to explain exactly their smile. Its my life time ambition and one and only one goal for my life, that is, to be like a child forever. Even diamonds glitters very less and it is use less at children's smile. Their eyes like lightening lamps. There is no light in this universe to compare the light in the eyes of children. No jealous, No anger, No likes, No dislikes But only a smile. I always want to be like that.

Its not Strength . . .

"Ganesh Nimarjan in Bhagyanagar Hyderabad, 70,000 Ganesh Mandaps, 45,000 Police for security, 3000 CCTV Cameras, Total 227 Kilometer of City Roads covered with Ganesh Visarjan Procession makes it one of the largest religious festival."
It sounds like a great thing to so many people. But not to me. Because . . .
"Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy and Medak districts covers a total area of 650 km2 (250 sq mi)."
In a small area of 250 sq mi., there are 70,000 Ganesh Mandaps. It sounds me how much disunity is there between the people. If there is really unity, there will very less number of Ganesh Mandaps. Right? Just think once. Unity is strength. Its only my personal opinion. May be I'm wrong.
 

Not Only Unhealthy but also a Big Sin. . .


Children are another form of God . . .

Wastage + Sound + No Manners = Foolishness


My FaceBook Day . . .

I'm seeing only humans but no humanity. In olden days people used to fight with weapons. But in the present days people are fighting with words, with posts in Facebook. In olden days people used to fight at war fields but now people are fighting at Facebook. There is too much civil war in Facebook. They are hacking on others mind. People are turning brutal slowly and silently without knowing to themselves. Once I open Facebook, my mind is simply getting disturbed by reading those indirect civil war posts. I want to be away from that. I'll practice not to open Facebook but only once per a month. Hence, I decided that last day of every month is my Facebook day. That too, if the reason for opening Facebook is very much strong and there is no way to escape from it. 
And finally I wish, May the world live with mutual cooperating rather mutually criticizing and showing friendliness and love each other from the depth of the heart. And I also wish, May my mind won't rest for the betterment of Human kind. Lets live as Humans first. God Loves Humans with Humanity.
May Peace Prevail in Human Mind.

Connecting Dots . . .



Setting up big goals to reach in very less time is unrealistic. Many a time I have failed to achieve such a goals to reach in less time. But now I'm analyzing my strengths and weaknesses. I'll setup only small goals to reach. I'll slowly try to connect the dots to make a big line. Setting up only small goals to reach in a feasible time period. Slowly improving my strengths even to achieve bigger targets. 
Dare to Dream - Strive to Achieve

Just Focus . . .
