SEMANTICS OF MEDITATION

For long, I thought meditation is sitting idle which is synonymous with boredom.   I thought action makes me superior and I must cling to it.  But that proves to be the other way,  finally.

Various masks that I wear in my daily life seems to be blocking my progress.   I must first  unlearn to find  'inner balance'.   My experience in life says that pumping  information into mind indiscriminately does not put me on higher path.

DISCOVERY OF INDIA


Outlook, India's English  Weekly News Magazine in it's 12th January, 2015 edition chose Jawaharlal Nehru's much acclaimed book " The Discovery of India' as one of the 100 Great Books of the World.  Surprisingly, I have not read it so far.

But, in May, 2014 when I went to old newspaper vendor shop  which I do regularly to buy second-hand books,  this book  was stacked along with some other books and kept in a dusty corner.   I chose a couple of books which include this one and  bought   for a price in kgs.  I did not immediately recognize the importance of this book, but a cursory glance  made me to keep it  in my priority reading list.

But Outlook's description of the book woke me up from the slumber.   The book was referred as  rambling account of the history and culture of India - from  Indus valley civilization to the British Raj.

The report of  '"Six fresh cases of swine flu in Delhi' today morning and my daughter's  demand forced me to know more about this disease.   

What is swine flu ?  To get the answer in layman's language, I searched internet which retrieved me to a very reliable website called MedicineNet.com . The slogan of that website is so catchy 'We bring Doctor's knowledge to you'.

Today is the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda (12.01.2015).  It is also marked as National Youth Day in India.

Swami Vivekananda was born as Narendra Nath Datta on 12th January, 1863 in Kolkata.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sent a tweet saying that On his birth anniversary, I bow to Swami Vivekananda.  He is a personal inspiration, whose thoughts & ideals have influenced me deeply.

When I read the PM's tweet, I reminisced my own story of how Swamiji stood on my side and helped in achieving  my own goals in life.  I have an envious collection of Swamiji's literature and one must read to get daily dose of inspiration. 

Earlier I wrote an article on Swami Vivekananda which you can read with below link :
