Reason ,the Sap of Vedanta

" The faculty of reason is a human prerogative.It arises from the ability to think.Reason makes a human the chef d'oeuvre of creation .But few care to develop the art of thinking ,reasoning .People do not seem to realise that thinking is skilled work .That you need to learn and practice it .On the contrary you believe that it is a natural process like breathing or eating .That you can think clearly and accurately without putting in the necessary effort on your part .It is not so .If you are to develop the faculty of thinking ,reasoning you need to devote as much time and effort to it as you would to learning any other skill."

excerpt from ''Vedant Treatise " by Shri.A.Parthasarathy .

Pace of life !!

The glitter and glamour continues to fascinate the majority of people .It seems ,people are running a relentless race whithout even realising the repurcussions  of such an aimless pursuit .The three rs -reading ,writing and arithmetic are the base of our education but to our modern world ,they seem to be obsolete .The computer has made the calculations faster .The human mind is working faster than the body ,hence the disbalance .
Please understand that we have to meet the basic requirements with a larger pace to match the rate of growth.The teachings at the nursery level have to be stronger .The formative years of human life is very crutial.Planting a tree is not important .But helping it grow into a tree is what life is all about !!

Picking up the threads

Picking up the threads 
 I blend my thoughts 
 I weave my nest , 
and take some rest .
My proclivity  
to live and cherish 
give colours to my identity,
 as I close my eyes
 for the blissful moment ,
smiles my destiny forever ,
alive are the dreams ,
as I prepare myself 
for yet another day ,
the bliss 
unveils the exhaltation
and satiates my quest  !!

From 'Vedanta' by  A Parthasarathy...!!

''Social  service  is indeed  a noble trait but not  at  the  expense  of developing social  consciousness among people.Every  human  being  must  be  educated in the spirit  of social  consciousness.That is to empathise ,serve ,share and harmonise  with  fellow beings .The concept of social conciousness ought to be introduced at the level of primary schools for children to grow with that noble trait .And families practice it in their homes from the very beginning .Charity begins at home .When the spirit of social conciousness prevails in a community there will be no need for social services.''

Compassion is a simple way of moving through the world with respect for all beings. It is about practicing acceptance, concern and understanding for others, with the realization that whatever we do for someone else helps us grow as spiritual beings.
Here are seven thoughts from notable spiritual teachers on the power of compassion to break down barriers and help us unfold our hearts:
  1. “Compassion is a muscle that gets stronger with use.” (Gandhi)
    The works we do for one another determine our true strength.
  2. “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” (Plato)
    Compassion is most worthwhile when it becomes most difficult to practice.
  3. “Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.” (14th Dalai Lama)
    Never doubt the impact of one person’s goodness to affect greater change.
  4. “I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.” (Lao Tzu)
    Kindness can be learned. Compassion can be taught. It’s never too late to study.
  5. “I would rather feel compassion than know the meaning of it. I would hope to act with compassion without thinking of personal gain.” (Thomas Aquinas)
    Compassion helps the give perhaps more than the recipient.
  6. “I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.” (Thich Nhat Hanh)
    Acceptance is the first component of universal compassion and respect for all life.
  7. “If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.” (Buddha)
    Do not forget to treat yourself with the same love and patience you show others.
Not all of us can be world-renowned spiritual teachers… and that’s okay! We too can grow closer to universal love through small acts of goodness every day.
