2138~ THE WAY TO TASTE BLISS IS TO LOSE SOMETHING

A very rich man was very much puzzled because his whole life he tried to be rich and rich and rich, and finally he succeeded. He became rich, he became the richest man in the world, but there was no bliss. And he was thinking that once you become rich, bliss is attained. He was very frustrated. That is the fate of all successful people. He started going around asking for any wise person who could help him to attain bliss.

Somebody suggested a Sufi master. He went to the Sufi master on his beautiful horse. He was carrying a big bag full of diamonds, maybe the most precious stones in the world, and he told the master, "I have all these diamonds, but not a drop of bliss. How can I gain bliss? Can you help me?"

The master jumped -- the rich man could not believe his eyes -- the master snatched away the bag and ran away. The rich man followed him crying, shouting, "I have been robbed! I have been cheated! This man is not a master, this man is a thief -- catch hold of him!"

But in that village the master was well acquainted with all the roads and all the lanes and all the streets, so he dodged the rich man. And the rich man had never run after anybody; it was difficult. A crowd started following. They knew the Sufi master, that his ways were very strange.

Finally they came back to the same tree where the master had been sitting and the rich man had found him. The master was again sitting under the tree with the bag. The rich man came there, the master gave the bag to him, and the rich man held the bag close to his heart and said, "I am so blissful. I am so happy that I have found my lost treasure!"

And the master said, "Have you tasted a little bit of bliss? Unless you lose it you cannot taste it. I have made you taste it. This is the way to taste bliss -- lose something."
-----------------------
If you can lose your ego you will gain yourself -- what Buddha calls no-self. He calls it no-self for the simple reason that it is not your old ego anymore. It has no shadow of the ego at all; hence he calls it no-self. Lose the ego and gain the self or no-self, and suddenly you are mature. Lose the mind and gain consciousness and you are mature.

Die to the past and be born to the present and you are mature.

Maturity is living in the present, fully alert and aware of all the beauty and the splendor of existence.

2137~ Motivating lined from Mahakavi Sri Sri

కుదిరితే పరిగెత్తు.. ,
లేకపోతే నడువు...
అదీ చేతకాకపోతే...
పాకుతూ పో.... ,
అంతేకానీ ఒకే చోట అలా కదలకుండా ఉండిపోకు...

ఉద్యోగం రాలేదని,
వ్యాపారం దెబ్బతినిందని,
 'స్నేహితుడొకడు మోసం చేశాడని,'
ప్రేమించినవాళ్ళు వదిలి వెళ్ళి పోయారని...
అలాగే ఉండిపోతే ఎలా?

దేహానికి తప్ప,
దాహానికి పనికిరాని
ఆ సముద్రపు కెరటాలే
ఎగిసి ఎగిసి పడుతుంటే...  

తలుచుకుంటే...
నీ తలరాత ఇంతే అన్నవాళ్ళు కూడా...
నీ ముందు తలదించుకునేలా
 చేయగల సత్తా నీది,
 అలాంటిది ఇప్పుడొచ్చిన
 ఆ కాస్త కష్టానికే తలొంచేస్తే ఎలా?

సృష్టిలో చలనం ఉన్నది
ఏదీ ఆగిపోకూడదు...,
పారే నది..,
వీచే గాలి...,
ఊగే చెట్టు...,
ఉదయించే సూర్యుడు....

అనుకున్నది సాధించాలని
నీలో కసికసిగా ప్రవహిస్తుందే
ఆ నెత్తురుతో సహా....,,
ఏదీ ఏది ఆగిపోడానికి
వీల్లేదు..,

లే...
బయలుదేరు...
నిన్ను కదలనివ్వకుండా చేసిన
 ఆ మానసిక భాదల
 సంకెళ్ళను తెంచేసుకో... ,

పడ్డ చోటు నుండే పరుగు

నీ అద్దం....
నిన్ను ప్రశ్నించకముందే

నీ నీడ నిన్ను
వదిలేయకముందే వెలుగులోకి
 వచ్చేయ్..,


మళ్ళీ చెప్తున్నా...
కన్నీళ్ళు కారిస్తే కాదు...,
చెమట చుక్కని చిందిస్తేనే

Rumi's answer to questions asked by a disciple -

What is Poison?
He replied with a beautiful answer - Anything which is more than our necessity is Poison. It may be Power, Wealth, Hunger, Ego, Greed, Laziness, Love, Ambition, Hate or anything

What is fear.....?
Non acceptance of uncertainty.
If we accept that uncertainty, it becomes adventure...!

What is envy ?
Non acceptance of good in others
If we accept that good, it becomes inspiration...!

What is Anger?
Non acceptance of things which are beyond our control.
If we accept, it becomes tolerance...!

2132.~ 😁HOLY BROTHELS!

A man is driving down a deserted stretch of highway
 when he notices a sign out of the corner of his eye...
 It reads:

SISTERS OF ST. FRANCIS HOUSE OF PROSTITUTION
 10 MILES

He thinks this is a figment of his imagination and drives on without second thought.

Soon he sees another sign which reads:

SISTERS OF ST. FRANCIS HOUSE OF PROSTITUTION
 5 MILES

Suddenly he begins to realize that these signs are for real and drives past a third sign saying:

SISTERS OF ST. FRANCIS HOUSE OF PROSTITUTION
 NEXT RIGHT

His curiosity gets the best of him and he pulls into the drive. On the far side of the parking lot is a stone building with a small sign next to the door reading:

SISTERS OF ST. FRANCIS

He climbs the steps and rings the bell. The door is answered by a nun in a long black habitwho asks: 'What may we do for you, my son?'

He answers, 'I saw your signs along the highway and was interested in possibly doing business...'

'Very well, my son...Please follow me.' He is led through many winding passages and is soon quite disoriented. The nun stops at a closed door and tells the man: 'Please knock on this door.'

He does so and another nun in a long habit, holding a tin cup answers the door. This nun instructs: 'Please place $100 in the cup – then go through the large wooden door at the end of the hallway.'

He puts $100 in the cup, eagerly trots down the hall and slips through the door pulling it shut behind him.

The door locks, and he finds himself back in the parking lot facing another sign:

*GO IN PEACE.*

*YOU HAVE JUST BEEN SCREWED BY THE SISTERS OF ST. FRANCIS.*

*SERVES YOU RIGHT, YOU SINNER!*

2131~ కరెన్సీ ముద్రణ


ప్రశ్న: రిజర్వు బ్యాంకు దగ్గర ఉన్న బంగారాన్ని బట్టి కరెన్సీ ముద్రణ ఉంటుందా? అసలు డబ్బుల ముద్రణ ఎలా ఉంటుంది?

జవాబు: పురాతన కాలంలో వస్తుమార్పిడి పద్ధతి ద్వారా వినియోగ వస్తువుల వినిమయం ఉండేది. కానీ కాలక్రమేణా వినియోగ వస్తువుల వైవిధ్యం పెరగడం వల్ల ఒకేచోట అన్ని వస్తువులు లభ్యం కాకపోవడం వల్ల వస్తువుకు, వస్తువుకు మధ్య వారధిలాగా కరెన్సీ, నాణేలు రంగంలోకి వచ్చాయి. ఆయాదేశపు అగ్రస్థాయి ఆర్థిక నియంత్రిత వ్యవస్థ ఆయాదేశాల్లో చలామణీ అయ్యే కరెన్సీ మోతాదును నిర్ధారిస్తుంది. మన దేశంలో ఆ అధికారం చాలామటుకు రిజర్వు బ్యాంకుకు ఉంది. నాణేల ముద్రణ వరకు పూర్తిగా ప్రభుత్వ ఆర్థిక మంత్రిత్వశాఖ నిర్ధారిస్తుంది.

మన దేశంలో 1, 2 ,5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, 1000 రూపాయల కరెన్సీ టెండర్లు ఉండగా గత సంవత్సరం నవంబరు 8వ తేదీ నుంచి 500, 1000 రూపాయల కరెన్సీకి తెరపడింది. వాటి స్థానే కొత్త 500, 2000 రూపాయల కరెన్సీ వచ్చింది.

కరెన్సీ నోట్లను దేశంలో మధ్యప్రదేశ్‌ రాష్ట్రంలోని దేవాస్‌, మహారాష్ట్రలోని నాసిక్‌, కర్ణాటక రాష్ట్రంలో మైసూరు, పశ్చిమ్‌ బంగలోని సాల్బొని నగరాల్లో కట్టుదిట్టంగా ముద్రిస్తారు. వీటికి రిజర్వు బ్యాంకు గవర్నరు వకాల్తా పుచ్చుకుంటారు.

నాణేల ముద్రణ ముంబయి, నోయిడా, కోల్‌కతా, హైదరాబాదుల్లో జరుగుతోంది.

రిజర్వు బ్యాంకు దగ్గర ఉన్న బంగారు నిల్వలతో పాటు దేశంలో పెరుగుతున్న జాతీయ స్థూల ఉత్పత్తి, వస్తువుల వైవిధ్యం, జనాభా పెరుగుదల, పాత కరెన్సీ వాడకంలో నలిగిపోయి పనికిరాకుండా పోయే తీరు మీద, ఆయా నోట్ల డిమాండు మీద ఆధారపడి వివిధ విలువలు గల కరెన్సీ నోట్లను ముద్రిస్తారు.

2127- God is One!



--------------------------------------------
It is true, God is one.
Yes,as  per Advaita(like Sufism) too, God/ Brahman is one. Vedas too say "Ekam Sat, vipra bahuda vadanti"- God/Truth is one but wise call Him by different names.

To visualise an abstract God is difficult for us mortals. Each country has got a Flag. Flag is not the country. It symbolises the country. Likewise each  has got his own symbol to visualise/remind him of his deity- a Letter/a Book/a Kaba/ an Idol/ a Cross etc. A child cannot visualise the abstract alphabets. So we teach him alphabets through concrete objects like- A for apple, B for boy C for cat etc till such time he can fluently read.

Till we can understand the abstract (omnipotent/omnipresent/ omniscient) Brahman we worship the ideal behind symbols/ idols as  props and as our conscious expands we drop them.

Religions are man made, and ultimately what counts is man's relationship with God and the fellow human beings. If at all religion is to help, it should just help in finding the best way possible to live and let live.Therefore,now a days many lean towards spiritualism without religion.

2126~ ఈ మెసేజ్ Save చేసుకోండి..

దీనిలోని ప్రతి లైన్ జీవితంలో ఎక్కడో ఒక దగ్గర తప్పక ఉపయోగపడుతుంది.!

•దేనికైనా కాలం కలసి రావాలి. అందరికీ అవకాశం కల్పిస్తాడు దేవుడు. అందుకోసం వెయిట్‌ చెయ్యాలన్నారు.
అలాగే నాటకం చూడాల్సి వస్తే ముందు వరుసలో కూర్చుంటాం. అదే సినిమా చూడాల్సి వస్తే వెనుక వరుసలో కూర్చుంటాం. ముందు వెనుకలన్నవి సాపేక్షం.
సబ్బును తయారు చెయ్యాలంటే ఆయిల్‌ కావాలి! అదే చేతికి అంటిన ఆయిల్‌ను పోగొట్టుకోవాలంటే…సబ్బు కావాలి.చిత్రంగా లేదు?
జీవితమూ ఇంతే అన్నారు.

•సమస్య వచ్చి పడింది. జీవితం అయిపోయింది అనుకోకూడదు. దానిని ఓ మలుపుగా భావించాలి.
తాళం తో పాటే తాళం చెవి కూడా తయారు చేయబడుతుంది.  ఒకటి లేకుండా రెండోది తయారు కాబడదు. అలాగే పరిష్కారం లేకుండా సమస్య కూడా రాదు

•ఈ ప్రపంచంలో ఇద్దరే ఇద్దరు ఆనందిస్తారట! ఒకరు పిచ్చివాళ్ళు. మరొకరు చిన్నపిల్లలు. గమ్యాన్ని చేరుకోవాలంటే పిచ్చితనం కావాలి. చేరుకున్న గమ్యాన్ని ఆనందించాలంటే చిన్నపిల్లలైపోవాలన్నారు.

•తూటా కంటే శక్తివంతమైనది మాట! ఒక్క మాటతో సంబంధం తెంచుకోవచ్చు, ఒకే మాటతో లేని బందాన్ని పంచుకోవచ్చు.

•మనిషి సమాజంలో సూదిలా బ్రతకాలి, కత్తెర లాగ కాదు.
సూది పని ఎప్పుడూ జోడించడమే,
కత్తెర పని ఎప్పుడూ విడదీయడమే,
అందరిని కలుపుకుంటూ బ్రతకాలి.
కత్తెర లాగా విడదీస్తూ కాదు..

•నిజాన్ని మార్చే శక్తి ఈ ప్రపంచంలో ఎవ్వరికీ లేదు, కానీ ప్రపంచాన్ని మార్చే శక్తి నిజానికి ఉంది.

•నీవు సంతోషంగా ఉన్నావంటే నీకు సమష్యల్లేవని కాదు,
వాటిని ఎదుర్కోగల శక్తి, ధైర్యం నీకున్నాయని…

•స్నేహితుడిని నీ దుఃఖసమయంలోను,
యోధుడిని యుద్ధంలోను, భార్యను పేదరికంలోను,
గొప్పవ్యక్తిని అతని వినయంలోను పరీక్షించాలి.

•చేసిన తప్పుకు క్షమాపణ అడిగినవాడు ధైర్యవంతుడు.
ఎదుటి వారి తప్పును క్షమించగలిగిన వాడు బలవంతుడు.

• కష్టం అందరికీ శత్రువే, కానీ కష్టాన్ని కూడా చిరునవ్వుతో స్వీకరిస్తే, సుఖమై నిన్ను ప్రేమిస్తుంది.

•ఓటమి లేనివాడికి అనుభవం రాదు,
అనుభవం లేనివాడికి జ్ఞానం రాదు.
గెలిచినప్పుడు గెలుపును స్వీకరించు,
ఓడినప్పుడు పాఠాన్ని స్వీకరించు.
ఎలా నిలదొక్కుకున్నావన్నది కావల్సింది.
ఓడిపోయి విశ్రాంతి తీసుకుంటునప్పుడు
ఆ ఓటమి నేర్పిన పాఠాన్ని చదువుకో,
గెలుస్తావు.

•ఎవరికైనా ఉండేది రోజుకు 24 గంటలే,
గెలిచేవాడు ఆ 24 గంటలూ కష్టపడుతుంటాడు.
ఓడేవాడు ఆ 24 గంటలు ఎలా కష్టపడలా అని ఆలోచిస్తుంటాడు.అదే తేడా…
గెలవాలన్న తపన,
గెలవగలను అన్న నమ్మకం,
నిరంతర సాధన.
ఈ మూడే నిన్ను గెలుపుకు
దగ్గర చేసే సాధనాలు.
నేను గెలవటంలో ఓడిపొవచ్చు, కానీ
ప్రయత్నించడంలో గెలుస్తున్నాను…
ప్రయత్నిస్తూ గెలుస్తాను.. గెలిచి తీరుతాను.

•స్వయంకృషితో పైకొచ్చినవారికి
ఆత్మవిశ్వాసం ఉంటుంది గానీ,
అహంకారం ఉండదు.

2125~ 'Put a shark in your tank'

- An old story for the New Year!
-------------------------------------------------
The Japanese have always loved fresh fish🐠 🐟🐠🐟
But the water close to Japan has not held many fish🐠🐟 for decades.
So to feed the Japanese population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever.

The further the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring the fish🐠🐟🐠🐟

If the return trip took more time, the fish 🐠🐟🐠🐟 were not fresh.

To solve this problem, fish 🐠🐟 companies installed freezers on their boats.

They would catch the fish 🐠🐟 and freeze them at sea.

Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer.

However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen fish🐠🐟 and they did not like the taste of frozen fish 🐠🐟

The frozen fish🐠🐟 brought a lower price.

So, fishing companies installed fish tanks.

They would catch the fish 🐠🐟 and stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin.

After a little thrashing around, they were tired, dull, and lost their fresh-fish taste.

The fishing industry faced an impending crisis!

But today, they get fresh-tasting fish to Japan.

How did they manage...?

To keep the fish🐠🐟🐠 tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish🐠🐟🐠 in the tanks but with a small shark🐋🐋

The fish🐠🐟🐠are challenged and hence are constantly on the move.

The challenge they face keeps them alive and fresh!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the time tired and dull....?

Basically in our lives, sharks 🐋🐋 are new challenges to keep us active.

If you are steadily conquering challenges, you are happy.

Your challenges keep you energized.

Don’t create Success and revel in it in a state of inertia.

You have the resources, skills and abilities to make a difference.

Put a shark 🐋🐋 in your tank this year and see how far you can really go....

Wishing u an awesome year ahead 👍✌

2124- FAITH LOOKS UP 👆

THE BUZZARD
If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6′ x 8′ and is entirely open at the top, the bird, in spite of its ability to fly, will be an absolute prisoner. The reason is that a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground with a run of 10-12′. Without space to run, as is its habit, it will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner for life in a small jail with no top.

THE BAT
The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkably nimble creature in the air, cannot take off from a level place. If it is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle about helplessly and painfully until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it takes off like a flash.

THE BUMBLEBEE
A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler, will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out. It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom. It will seek a way where none exists, until it completely destroys itself.

PEOPLE
In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat and the bumblebee. We struggle about with all our problems and frustrations, never realizing that all we have to do is look up. Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, but faith looks up.

Live simply, love generously, care deeply and speak kindly.

(Thanks GL Sampoorna)
____________
Here is a story about 'looking up' in faith :~
“A man … went one evening to steal corn from a neighbor’s field. He took his little boy with him to sit on the fence and keep a look-out, so as to give warning in case any one should come along. The man jumped over the fence with a large bag on his arm, and before commencing to take the corn he looked all around, first one way and then the other, and not seeing any person, he was just about to fill his bag. …
[The boy then called out]:~
“‘Father, there is one way you haven’t looked yet! … You forgot to look up.’”

2123- THE LAW OF THE GARBAGE TRUCK

"I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet."

~Mahatma Gandhi

_______________________
One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us.

My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches!

The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us!

My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, really friendly. So I asked, “Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!”

This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, “The Law of the Garbage Truck.”

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage (frustration, anger, and disappointment, etc.). As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on you.

Don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so… love the people who treat you right & pray for the ones who don’t. Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!
Have a blessed, garbage-free day.

2122~ PROFESSIONALISM

Shiv Khera, a renowned author and management trainer writes about his experience in Singapore :~

"Six years ago in Singapore I gave a taxi driver a business card to take me to a particular address.

At the last point he circled round the building. His meter read 11$, but he took only 10.

I said Henry, your meter reads 11$ how come you are taking only 10.

He said Sir, I am a taxi driver, I am supposed to be bringing you straight to the destination. Since I did not know the last spot, I had to circle around the building. Had I brought you straight here, the meter would have read 10$.

Why should you be paying for my ignorance ?

He said Sir, legally, I can claim 11$ but Honestly and ethically I am entitled to only 10.

He further added that Singapore is a tourist destination and many people come here for three or four days. After clearing the immigrations and customs, the first experience is always with the taxi driver and if that is not good, the balance three to four days are not pleasant either.

He said Sir I am not a taxi driver, I am the Ambassador of Singapore without a diplomatic passport.

In my opinion he probably did not go to school beyond the 8th grade, but to me he was a professional. To me his behavior reflected pride in performance and character.

That day I learnt that one needs more than professional qualification to be a professional.

In one line be a "Professional with a human touch and Values " that makes all the more difference.

Knowledge, skill, money, education, all comes later. First comes Human Values, Honesty and Integrity

Professionalism: It’s NOT the job you DO, It’s HOW you DO the job.”

2119- The link between man and God is FAITH

An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to his Class on the problem science has with GOD , the ALMIGHTY. He asked one of his New students to stand and . . .

Professor :Do you Believe in GOD ?
Student : Absolutely, sir.
Professor : Is GOD Good ?
Student : Sure.
Professor : Is GOD ALL -POWERFUL ?
Student : Yes.
Professor : My Brother died of Cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal
him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn't.
How is this GOD good then? Hmm?
(Student was silent )

Professor : You can't answer, can you ? Let's start again, Young fella.
Is GOD Good?
Student : Yes.
Professor : Is Satan good ?
Student : No.
Professor : Where does Satan come from ?
Student : From . . . GOD . . .
Professor : That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Student : Yes.
Professor : Evil is everywhere, isn't it ? And GOD did make everything.
Correct?
Student : Yes.
Professor : So who created evil ?
(Student did not answer)

Professor : Is there Sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don't they?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor : So, who created them ?
(Student had no answer)

Professor : Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son . . . Have you ever seen GOD?
Student : No, sir.
Professor : Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?
Student : No , sir.
Professor : Have you ever felt your GOD, tasted your GOD , smelt your GOD ? Have you ever had any sensory perception of GOD for that matter?
Student : No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Professor : Yet you still believe in HIM?
Student : Yes.
Professor : According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your GOD doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student : Nothing. I only have my faith.
Professor : Yes, faith. And that is the problem science has.

Now the dtudent asks and the professor answers
Student : Professor, is there such a thing as heat?
Professor : Yes.
Student : And is there such a thing as cold?
Professor : Yes.
Student : No, sir. There isn't,
(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events )

Student : Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, little heat or no heat. But we don't have anything
called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we
can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is
only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure
cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the
absence of it.
(There was pin-drop silence in the Lecture Theatre )

Student : What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Professor : Yes. What is night if there isn't darkness?
Student : You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something.
You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light . . but if
you have no light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness,
isn't it? In reality, darkness isn't. If it is, you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?

Professor : So what is the point you are making, Young Man ?
Student : Sir, my point is your Philosophical premise is flawed.
Professor : Flawed ? Can you explain how?
Student : Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is
life and then there is death, a Good GOD and a Bad GOD. You are viewing the concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
Professor : If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes,
of course, I do.

Student : Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?

(The Professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the
argument was going)

Student : Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?

(The class was in uproar )

Student : Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the professor's
brain?

(The class broke out into laughter)

Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain,
felt it, touched or smelt it? . . .No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?

(The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face
unfathomable)

Professor : I guess you'll have to take them on faith, son.
Student : That is it sir . . . exactly ! The link between MAN & GOD is FAITH. That is all that keeps things alive and moving.

2117- EXCELLENCE

The law of excellence: “Excellent rewards are paid for excellent perfor-mance, excellent products or excellent service. The quality of our life will be determined by our commitment to excellence more than by any other factor.”

Let's strive for excellence, not for perfection.

Human beings can never be perfect, only God, our creator is perfect. Perfection (without fault or defect) is unattainable, frustrating and neurotic.

Excellence (of high quality) is attainable, gratifying and healthy. So let's not be perfect, just be our best. That is excellence. Then the work becomes an avenue of self expression and an expression from heart. Work also becomes enjoyment for when work is an enjoyment, it will not be drudgery. Let's steer our whole endeavour to touch EXCELLENCE. Excellence is self expression and harmony resulting in attaining peace as well as happiness and that is ultimately called ‘success’.

Striving for excellence is progress. So, our level of performance is a choice. We can settle for mediocrity, or we can strive for excellence.

2114- PERSPECTIVE

YOU MAY NOT HAVE UNDERSTOOD ...

A teacher teaching Maths to seven-year-old Arnav asked him, "If I give you one apple and one apple and one apple, how many apples will you have?" Within seconds Arnav replied confidently, "Four!"

The dismayed teacher was expecting an effortless correct answer (three).  She was disappointed.  "Maybe the child did not listen properly," she thought.  She repeated, "Arnav, listen carefully.  If I give you one apple and one apple and one apple, how many apples will you have?"

Arnav had seen the disappointment on his teacher's face.  He calculated again on his fingers. This time hesitatingly he replied, "Four…"
 
The disappointment stayed on the teacher's face.  She remembered that Arnav liked strawberries.  She thought maybe he doesn't like apples and that is making him loose focus.

This time with an exaggerated excitement and twinkling in her eyes she asked, "If I give you one strawberry and one strawberry and one strawberry, then how many you will have?"

Seeing the teacher happy, young Arnav calculated on his fingers again.   With a hesitating smile young Arnav enquired, "Three?"

The teacher now had a victorious smile.  Her approach had succeeded. Once again she asked him, "Now if I give you one apple and one apple and one more apple how many will you have?" Promptly Arnav answered, "Four!"

The teacher was aghast.  "How Arnav, how?" she demanded in a little stern and irritated voice.

In a voice that was low and hesitating young Arnav replied, "Because I already have one apple in my bag."

Moral: When someone gives you an answer that is different from what you expect. Don't think they are wrong. There maybe an angle that you have not understood at all.
You will have to listen and understand, but never listen with a predetermined notion.

2113- Inspiring story..retold. A Beautiful Message🌿

_____________________________
Arthur Ashe, The Legendary Wimbledon Player was dying of AIDS which he got due to Infected Blood he received during a Heart Surgery in 1983!
He received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: "Why did God have to select you for such a bad disease??"
To this Arthur Ashe replied: 50 Million children started playing Tennis, 5 Million learnt to play Tennis, 500 000 learnt Professional Tennis, 50 Thousand came to Circuit, 5 Thousand reached Grandslam,
50 reached Wimbledon, 4 reached the Semifinals, 2 reached the Finals and when I was holding the cup in my hand, I never asked God "Why Me?"
So now that I'm in pain how can I ask God "Why Me?"
--------------------------------------
Happiness keeps you Sweet!!
Trials keeps you Strong!!
Sorrows keeps you Human!!
Failure keeps you Humble!!
Success keeps you Glowing!!
But,
only Faith keeps you Going.
Sometimes you are unsatisfied with your life,
while many people in this world are dreaming of living your life..
A child on a farm sees a plane fly overhead &
dreams of flying.
But,
A pilot on the plane sees the farmhouse & dreams of returning home.
That's life!! Enjoy yours...
If wealth is the secret to happiness, then the rich should be dancing on the streets.
But only poor kids do.
If power ensures security, then VIPs should walk unguarded. But those who live simply, sleep soundly.
If beauty and fame bring ideal relationships,
then celebrities should have the best marriages.
Live simply.
Walk humbly.
and love genuinely..!

😄😄😄😄
Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful doctors and lawyers.
One evening, they chatted after having dinner together. They discussed the 95th birthday gifts they were able to give their elderly mother who moved to Florida .
The first said, "You know I had a big house built for Mama."
The second said, "And I had a large theater built in the house."
The third said, "And I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her."
The fourth said, "You know how Mama loved reading the Bible and you know she can't read anymore because she can't see very well.
I met this preacher who told me about a parrot who could recite the entire Bible.
It took ten preachers almost 8 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute $50,000 a year for five years to the church, but it was worth it. Mama only has to name the chapter and verse, and the parrot will recite it."
The other brothers were impressed.
After the celebration Mama sent out her "Thank You" notes.
She wrote: Milton , the house you built is so huge that I live in only one room,
but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway."
"Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home; I have my groceries delivered,so I never use the Mercedes. The thought was good. Thanks."
"Michael, you gave me an expensive theater with Dolby sound and it can hold 50 people,
but all of my friends are dead, I've lost my hearing, and I'm nearly blind.I'll never use it. Thank you for the gesture just the same."
"Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the good sense to give a little thought to your gift. The chicken was delicious! Thank you so much." 😂😂

2103-Think before you act!

_________________________
A lovely little girl 👧 was holding two apples with both hands🍎🍎
Her mum 👩 came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile..
"My sweetie, could you give your mum one of your two apples..?"
The girl looked up at her mum for some seconds, then she suddenly took a quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other.
The mum felt the smile on her face freeze.
She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment 😔
Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her mum,and said:
"Mummy, here you are.
This is the sweeter one."
Moral of this Short Story:
--------------------------------------------
No matter who you are,
how experienced you are,
and
how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgement.
Give others the privelege to explain themselves.
What you see may not be the reality.
Never conclude for others.
Think Before You Act

2101- It's not happiness that makes us grateful but gratefulness that makes us happy!

____________________________
A famous writer was in his study room. He picked up his pen and started writing :
**Last year, I had a surgery and my gall bladder was removed. I had to stay stuck to the bed due to this surgery for a long time.
**The same year I reached the age of 60 years and had to give up my favourite job. I had spent 30 years of my life in this publishing company.
**The same year I experienced the sorrow of the death of my father.
**And in the same year my son failed in his medical exam because he had a car accident. He had to stay in bed at hospital with the cast on for several days. The destruction of car was another loss.
At the end he wrote: Alas! It was such bad year !!
When the writer's wife entered the room, she found her husband looking sad lost in his thoughts. From behind his back she read what was written on the paper. She left the room silently and came back with another paper and placed it on side of her husband's writing.
When the writer saw this paper, he found this name written on it with following lines :
**Last year I finally got rid of my gall bladder due to which I had spent years in pain....
**I turned 60 with sound health and got retired from my job. Now I can utilize my time to write something better with more focus and peace.....
**The same year my father, at the age of 95, without depending on anyone or without any critical condition met his Creator.....
**The same year, God blessed my son with a new life. My car was destroyed but my son stayed alive without getting any disability......
At the end she wrote:
This year was an immense blessing of God and it passed well !!!
The writer was indeed happy and amazed at such beautiful and encouraging interpretation of the happenings happened in his life in that year !!!
Moral : In daily lives we must see that its not happiness that makes us grateful but gratefulness that makes us happy.
To all my lovely friends and relatives.. Be happy.....Stay Blessed 😃

2098- Pleading guilty

_______________
Russ and Sam, two friends, very old and frail, met in the park every day to feed the birds, watch the squirrels and discuss world problems.
One day Russ didn't show up. Sam didn't think much about it and figured maybe he had a cold or something.
But after Russ hadn't shown up for a week or so, Sam really got worried.

However, since the only time they ever got together was at the park, Sam didn't know where Russ lived, so he was unable to find out what had happened to him.
A month had passed, and Sam figured he had seen the last of Russ,but one day, Sam approached the park and -- lo and behold! -- there sat Russ! Sam was very excited and happy to see him and told him so.
Then he said, "For crying out loud Russ, what in the world happened to you?"
Russ replied, "I was in jail."
"Jail?" cried Sam. "What in the world for?"
"Well," Russ said, "you know Sue, that cute sexy little blonde waitress at the coffee shop where I sometimes go?"
"Yeah," said Sam, "I remember her. What about her?"
"Well, one day she filed rape charges against me; and, at 89 years old, I was so proud that when I got into court, I pleaded 'guilty'."
"The damn judge gave me 30 days for lying under oath."

2097- Who Would You Choose ?

____________________________
One day, during an evening class for adults, the psychology Teacher entered the class and told his students, “Let’s all play a game!” “What Game?” asked the students. The Teacher asked one of the students to volunteer. A lady named Aliza came forward.
The Teacher asked her to write about 30 names of most important people in her life on blackboard. Aliza wrote her family members names and relatives names, friends names, her colleagues names and her neighbors names.
The Teacher told her “Please erase 3 names from the list that you consider most unimportant”. Aliza erased names of her colleagues. The Teacher again told her to delete 5 more names. Aliza did as the Teacher instructed and this time she erased her neighbor's names. This went on until there were just four names left on the blackboard.
Aliza now hesitated as the names left were of her mother, father, husband and her son... The entire class became silent and they realized that this wasn’t a game anymore for Aliza. She had to make the difficult choice.
The Teacher told her to delete two more names. Eliza unwillingly deleted her parents names. “Please delete one more” said the professor. Aliza became very nervous and with trembling hands she deleted her son’s name. Aliza cried out painfully...
The Teacher told Aliza to take her seat. And after a while asked her why she didn’t choose her parents or her son instead of her husband as the parents are the ones that nurtured her and the son is the one she gave birth to while she could find another husband. “Why is your husband the most important for you?” He asked.
It was totally quiet in the class, everyone was curious to know her response. Aliza calmly and slowly said, “One day my parents will pass away before me. Surely, my son will also leave me when he grows old for his studies or business or whatever reason. The only one who I truly share my entire life with, is my Husband”. All the students stood up and applauded for her in a great excitement.
We meet many people in our lives. They come and they go. Some stay for a while, some stay forever. Respect every relation, but know the priorities.
(PS: If it would be a man in place of Aliza he would choose his wife and give the same reasons as Aliza did.)
Well, who would you choose if you were in Aliza’s place ?
Get your answer READY!! 😊

Father is flying a kite. His son is watching him carefully.
After some time son says "Dad. Because of the string the kite is not able to go any further higher."
Hearing this, the father smiles and breaks the string.
The kite goes higher after breaking of the thread and then shortly after that it comes and falls on the ground.
The child is very dejected and sad.
The father sits next to him and calmly explains:
"Son, in life we reach a certain level of prosperity and then we feel that there are certain things in our life that are not letting us grow any further like Home, Family, Culture, Friendship etc. We feel we want to be free from those strings which we believe are stopping us from going higher."
"But, remember son. Going higher is easier than staying at the higher level."
"And friends, family and culture etc are the things that will help us stay stable at the high heights that we have achieved. If we try to break away from those strings our condition will be similar to the kite."
Moral
"Never go away from culture, family, friends and relationships as they help keep us stable while you are flying high."

2083- The 5 Most Famous Limericks and Their Histories

(by Allison VanNest • May 05, 2015)
_______________________________________
Edward Lear’s first influential limerick collection, A Book of Nonsense, hit bookstore shelves nearly 200 years ago. Lear didn’t invent the limerick, however; the snappy five-line poems probably sprang to life on the streets and in the taverns of 14th century Britain. Over time, people from all walks of life — children, scholars, drunks, beggars — have delighted in the witty limerick. Here’s a brief history of five of the world’s best-loved limericks.
(1)Hickory Dickory Dock
Hickory Dickory Dock showed up in “Tommy Thumb’s Pretty Songbook” in 1744. The famed tale of the timepiece-dwelling mouse appeared beside “Bah Bah, Blacksheep” and “Lady Bird, Lady Bird,” among others. No one knows for certain who penned the book, but it was one of the world’s first attempts to entertain children with literature.
“Hickory dickory dock.
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one,
And down he run.
Hickory dickory dock.”
(2)The Man from Nantucket
The Man from Nantucket serves as inspiration for limericks both dirty and pure. Perhaps you’ve even heard a “Rated X” ending to this story-starter. However, the original Nantucket limerick was quite tame. It appeared in Princeton University’s humor magazine, the “Princeton Tiger,” in 1902:
“There once was a man from Nantucket
Who kept all his cash in a bucket.
But his daughter, named Nan,
Ran away with a man,
And as for the bucket, Nantucket.”
(3)Speaking of Geography . . .
Princeton wasn’t the only publisher of geographically themed limericks. Lear chose Peru as his muse at least once, as shown by the following:
“There was an Old Man of Peru
Who watched his wife making a stew.
But once, by mistake,
In a stove she did bake
That unfortunate Man of Peru.”
Lear’s story of the unlucky Peru gent blazed a path for hundreds of amateur Peru poems to come, many of which are less than chaste. Middle schoolers excel at crafting this kind of literature, from what we hear. Perhaps a Peru limerick or two lingers in your own adolescent memory.
(4)Shakespearean Limerick
Shakespeare, limerick, Grammarly
Even William Shakespeare practiced what some would call the lowest form of poetry. The following limerick about imbibing spirits appeared in “Othello, Act II, Scene III”:
“And let me the canakin clink, clink.
And let me the canakin clink.
A soldier’s a man.
A life’s but a span.
Why, then, let a soldier drink.”
The Bard also used limericks in “King Lear” and “The Tempest.”
(5)Ogden Nash
Poet Ogden Nash coined the phrase, “Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker.” Some limerick fans insist he wrote the following limerick about a pelican:
“A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill can hold more than his beli-can.
He can take in his beak
Food enough for a week
But I’m damned if I see how the heli-can.”
This clever verse has also been attributed to Dixon Lanier Merritt, a humorist who lived at the same time. Nash died in 1971 and Merritt in 1972.
Crafting a Limerick
Limericks are “closed form” poems that adhere to a strict template. Want to write your own? Follow these guidelines:
The last word in lines 1, 2, and 5 must rhyme and contain 8-9 syllables each.
The last word in lines 3 and 4 must rhyme and contain 5-6 syllables each.
Of course, what fun are rules unless they’re broken — or at least bent — every once in a while? Consider this limerick by Zach Weiner of the comic “Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal,” which coherently flows both backward and forward:
“This limerick goes in reverse
Unless I’m remiss
The neat thing is this:
If you start from the bottom-most verse
This limerick’s not any worse.”
Now we challenge you to write your own limerick. It’s fast, easy, and incredibly satisfying. What will yours be about?

2077- Ravindra Patil , the prime witness in actor Salman Khan's rash driving case

Salman Khan
Here I am giving a point just ask all the people what they will say when in place on the people died or injured is replaced by the ones they love...
Just saying, all those who are supporting Salman Khan, and saying footpath is not a place to sleep, obviously it is not I agree completely, but I think it is also not to drive... and is it obvious people sleeping over there must not be on leisure trip or participating in any reality show, they were sleeping just because they don't have roof over their head to stay safe like we all do...whatever be the reason and whoever is responsible for their condition, that is totally different topic of discussion..
Just a flipside view: Just imagine a member of your family walking on the same footpath or just standing there for some reason, same Salman khan came drunk and driving, and hit that member of your family....will then also your logic goes same of it will change just because that person is your near and dear ones, If your statement changes then we should think of what kind of humanity we are practicing.....
And this whole lot of bunch of bollywood morons, esp. Mr. Abhijeet Bhattacharya (singer I admire since childhood) not any more....will say the same, dogs walking on the footpath, they can't afford this that and blah blah blah...
If all get out of trauma of Salman getting convicted please give it a thought...

2074- Live in “day-tight compartments”

--------------------------
One of Dale Carnegie’s principles for overcoming worry is to live in “day-tight compartments.”
This term was first coined by Sir William Osler when he encountered this life-changing quote from Thomas Carlisle, “It is not our goal to see what lies dimly in the distance but to do what clearly lies at hand.”
Rather than look to the past or more than 24 hours ahead of the present Sir Osler focused the tasks at hand. Often times, our thoughts are dominated by regrets and mistakes of the past, or anxiety about upcoming events. We are unable to perform what needs must be done at the moment because we are trapped in the past or future. Dale Carnegie said, “If you want to avoid worry, do what Sir William Osler did: Live in “day-tight compartments.” Don’t stew about the futures. Just live each day until bedtime.”

2073- “అష్టదళ పాద పద్మారాధన సేవ”

 - శ్రీ వారి పట్ల షేక్ మస్తాన్ కుటుంబానికున్న గొప్ప భక్తి
__________________________
తిరుమల తిరుపతి దేవస్థానం బోర్డు ఆఫీసు-
ఆ రోజుల్లో ఎంతో సమర్థుడని పేరు తెచ్చ్చుకున్న పి వి ఆర్ కే ప్రసాద్ తిరుమల తిరుపతి దేవస్థానం బోర్డు executive officer గా పనిచేస్తున్నారు..సరిగ్గా అవే రోజుల్లో దేవస్థానం వారు కూడా తమ స్వర్ణోత్సవపు సంవత్సరం సందర్భంగా తిరుమల శ్రీవారి ఆలయ చరిత్రలోనే ఎప్పటికీ నిలిచి పోయేటట్లుగా ఏదన్నా కొత్త పని మొదలు పెడితే బావుంటుందన్న ఆలోచనలో వున్నారు..
వారంతా ఆలోచనయితే చేసారు గానీ ఎన్ని దఫాలుగా ఎన్ని మీటింగులు పెట్టి ఎంత చర్చించినా ఆ ఆలోచనని ఆచరణలో పెట్టటంలో మాత్రం ఒక్క అడుగు కూడా ముందుకు వేయలేక పోయారు..సమయం దగ్గర పడుతోంది..ఏం చేయాలో దిక్కు తోచని స్థితి..వెంటనే ఏదో ఒకటి ప్లాన్ చెయ్యకపోతే అభాసుపాలు అవుతామేమోనన్న భయం అందర్లోనూ ఏ మూలో ఉంది….
“సరే..ఇక ఇవ్వాళ ఏదో ఒకటి తేల్చేయ్యాల్సిందే ” అని ఎంతో పట్టుదలగా ఉన్న సంబందిత అధికారులంతా కరెక్టుగా అదే రోజు అదే సమయంలో TTD బోర్డు రూం లో పీ వీ ఆర్ కే ప్రసాద్ అధ్యక్షతన సమావేశమై ఉన్నారు..
అక్కడున్న వారిలో TTD బోర్డు మెంబర్లుగా ఉన్నకొద్ది మంది పేరొందిన ప్రముఖులతో పాటు మరి కొంత మంది ముఖ్యమైన ఆలయ అధికారులు కూడా ఉన్నారు..అప్పుడక్కడ వేడిగా వాడిగా చర్చ జరుగుతోంది..చర్చ అయితే జరుగుతోంది కానీ తమ స్వర్ణోత్సవ సంవత్సరం సందర్భంగా స్వామి వారికి కొత్తగా ఏం చేస్తే బాగుంటుంది అన్న విషయంలో మాత్రం అక్కడున్న పెద్దలు ఒక perfect అవగాహనకు రాలేక పోతున్నారు..
సమయం గడుస్తున్నకొద్దీ EO పీ వీ ఆర్ కే ప్రసాద్లో అసహనం పెరిగిపోతోంది..ఎవరెవరో ఏమేమో చెప్తున్నా ఆయన మాత్రం వినలేక పోతున్నారు..ఒక విషయం మాత్రం ఆయనకు క్లియర్ గా అర్థం అయ్యింది..తమ ఆలోచన ఏ మాత్రం ముందుకు సాగాట్లేదని..దాంతో ఆయనలో అసహనంతో పాటు కాస్త చిరాకు కూడా మొదలయ్యింది..
సరిగ్గా అదే సమయంలో తలుపు తోసుకొని ఆఫీస్ అటెండర్ మెల్లిగా ప్రసాద్ దగ్గరికి వచ్చాడు..అసలే చిరాగ్గా ఉన్న ప్రసాద్ టైం గాని టైం లో వచ్చిన ఆ అటెండర్ని చూస్తూ ‘ఏంటయ్యా” అని మరింత చిరాకు పడిపోతూ అడిగారు..కంగారు పడ్డ ఆ అటెండర్ తన నోటికి చెయ్యి అడ్డం పెట్టుకుంటూ ఆయన ముందుకొంగి “సార్ మిమ్మల్ని కలవటం కోసం గుంటూరు నుండి ఎవరో భక్తుడు వచ్చాడు.. ” అని మెల్లిగా చెప్పాడు..
చిర్రెత్తుకొచ్చింది ప్రసాద్ కి.. “..ఎవరయ్యా అతను..ఇప్పుడింత అర్జెంటుగా మీటింగులో ఉంటే నన్ను డిస్టర్బ్ చేసి మరీ చెప్పాల్సినంత అవసరం ఏమొచ్చింది..కాసేపుండమను…”మరి కాస్త చిరాకు పడిపోతూ అన్నారు ప్రసాద్…”చెప్పాను సార్..కానీ ఏదో అర్జెంటుగా మీతో మాట్లాడాలట..అతని పేరు షేక్ మస్తాన్ అని చెప్తున్నాడు..” కొద్దిగా భయపడుతూ చెప్పాడు అటెండర్..
“.. షేక్ మస్తానా…” అని ముందు కాస్త ఆశ్చర్య పోయినా..”ఎవరో ముస్లిం భక్తుడు ఏదో రికమండేషన్ లెటర్ తో వచ్చి ఉంటాడు.. మా వాళ్ళు నా దగ్గరికి పంపించుంటారు..మళ్ళీ బయటకు పోవటం ఎందుకు..ఏదో రెండు నిమిషాలిక్కడే మాట్లాడి పంపించేస్తే సరిపోతుంది కదా ” అని మనసులో అనుకుంటూ.. “.. సర్లేవయ్యా..ఇక్కడికే రమ్మను..” ..అని అటెండర్ తో చెప్పి పంపించేసారు ప్రసాద్..
అప్పుడు దుద్రుష్టవసాత్తు ప్రసాద్ కి గానీ అదే రూం లో ఉన్నఏ ఇతర బోర్డు మెంబర్లకి గానీ తెలినీ విషయం ఏమిటంటే కాసేపట్లో తమ ముందుకు రాబోతున్న ఆ ముస్లిం భక్తుడు కేవలం ఒక భక్తుడు మాత్రమె కాదని స్వయంగా తమ స్వామి వారు పంపిస్తే తమ దగ్గరికి వస్తున్నాడని అంతేకాకుండా అతని ద్వారానే తాము ఇన్నాళ్లుగా తలలు బద్దలు కొట్టుకుంటున్న తమ స్వర్ణోత్సవ సంవత్సర సమస్యకు కూడా గొప్ప పరిష్కారం దొరకబోతోందని..
ఇవేమీ తెలీని ఆ పెద్దలంతా ఆ రూంలో వెయిట్ చేస్తుంటే ఆ ముస్లిం భక్తుడొక్కడూ బయట వెయిటింగ్ హాల్లోవెయిట్ చేస్తున్నాడు.. సరిగ్గా అప్పుడే అటెండర్ బయట కొచ్చిఆ ముస్లిం భక్తుడి దగ్గర కెళ్ళి చెప్పాడు “సార్..మా సార్ మిమ్మల్ని రమ్మంటున్నారు” అని..
అప్పటిదాకా తను కూర్చున్నచెక్క కుర్చీ లోంచి లేచి ఆ అటెండర్ కి థాంక్స్ చెప్తూ ఆ ముస్లిం భక్తుడు ఒక్కో అడుగూ వేసుకొంటూ బోర్డు రూం లోపలికి మెల్లిగా నడుచుకుంటూ వెళ్ళాడు..వెళ్తూనే రెండు చేతులు జోడించి అక్కడున్నవారందరికీ ఎంతో వినమ్రంగా నమస్కారం చేసి ఆ తరువాత మెల్లిగా ప్రసాద్ వైపు తిరిగి ఇలా చెప్పటం మొదలు పెట్టాడు..
“.. అయ్యా.. నా ఏరు షేక్ మస్తాన్..మాది గుంటూరు జిల్లా..మాది చాల పెద్ద కుటుంబం..అన్నదమ్ములందరం కలిసి ఉమ్మడిగా ఒకే ఇంట్లో ఉంటాం..మా కుటుంబానికక్కడ ఓ చిన్న పాటి వ్యాపారముంది..ఎన్నోతరాలుగా మేమంతా స్వామి వారి భక్తులం..”
“..మా తాత ముత్తాతల కాలం నుండీ కూడా మా కుటుంబ సభ్యులమంతా చిన్న పిల్లలతో సహా ఒక పద్ధతి ప్రకారం పొద్దున్నేలేచి స్వామి వారి ముందు నిలబడి శ్రీ వేంకటేశ్వర సుప్రభాతం పటిస్తాం..అట్లాగే ఏ మాత్రం తప్పులు పోకుండా శ్రీ వేంకటేశ్వర ప్రపత్తి, మంగళాశాసనం కూడా పటిస్తాం..నా మటుకు నేను శ్రీనివాస గద్యం మొత్తం పొల్లుపోకుండా అప్పజెప్పగలను..”
“తరతరాలుగా మా ఇంట్లో మరో ఆచారం కూడా ఉంది..అదేమిటంటే మేమంతా కలిసి ప్రతి మంగళ వారం పొద్దున్నే లేచి మా పెరట్లో పూచే రకరకాల పూలతో స్వామి వారి 108 నామాలూ ఒక్కొక్కటిగా పటిస్తూ ఒక్కో నామానికి ఒక్కో పువ్వు చొప్పున సమర్పిస్తూ శ్రీ స్వామి వారికి అష్టోత్తర శత నామ పూజ చేస్తాం..”
“అయ్యా ఇంతకీ నేను చెప్పొచ్చేదేమిమిటంటే..మా తాతగారు అంటే మా తండ్రి గారి తండ్రి గారు తన చివరి రోజుల్లో స్వామి వారికి తన స్వార్జితంతో 108 బంగారు తామర పూలు చేయించి శ్రీవారి ఆలయంలో సమర్పిస్తానని మొక్కుకున్నారు..మొక్కయితే మొక్కుకున్నారు గానీ పాపం వారి ఆరోగ్యమూ అంతంత మాత్రమే ఆర్ధిక స్తోమతా అంతంత మాత్రమె కావటం చేత కొద్ది మాత్రం బంగారు తామర పూలు మాత్రమే చేయించ గలిగారు..”
“..ఆ తరువాత తండ్రి గారి మొక్కు తీర్చే బాధ్యత తనది కూడా అవుతుంది కాబట్టి మా తండ్రిగారు కూడా ఎంతో భక్తి శ్రద్ధలతో ఒక్కో రూపాయి కూడ పెట్టి మరికొన్ని బంగారు పూలు చేయించారు..అంత కష్టపడీ చివరికా మొక్కు తీర్చకుండానే మా తండ్రి గారు కూడా వారి తండ్రి గారి లాగానే తమ చివరి రోజుల్లో ఎంతో బాధపడుతూ స్వామి వారి పాదాల్లో ఐక్యమై పోయారు..”
“..మరి మా తాతగారిది తండ్రిగారిది మొక్కు తీర్చాల్సిన బాధ్యత ఇంటికి పెద్ద కొడుగ్గా నా మీద కూడా వుంటుంది కాబట్టి నా ఆర్ధిక పరిస్థితి కూడా పెద్దగా సహకరించక పొయినా నేను కూడా ఎంతో కష్టపడి నా వంతు ప్రయత్నంగా ఆ మిగతా బంగారు పూలు కూడా పూర్తి చేయించాను..ఈ మధ్యనే కరెక్టుగా 108 పూల లెక్క పూర్తయ్యింది..ఎంతో భక్తితో అవి స్వామి వారికి సమర్పించాలని మా కుటుంబ సభ్యుల మంతా మొత్తం 54 మందిమి కలిసి ఇందాకే కాలి బాటన కొండెక్కి పైకి చేరుకున్నాం..”
అంటూ కాసేపాగి అందరివేపు ఒక్క నిమిషం తదేకంగా చూసాడు షేక్ మస్తాన్..ఆ తరువాత మెల్లిగా అసలు విషయం బయట పెట్టాడు…
“అయ్యా..ఇప్పటికే మీ అమూల్యమైన సమయం చాలా తీసుకున్నాను..కానీ చివరగా పెద్దలందరికీ నాదొక చిన్న విన్నపం.. మూడు తరాలుగా మా కుటుంబ సభ్యులంతా ఎంతో శ్రమపడి ఈ బంగారు తామర పూలు చేయించాం..ఇవి ఒక్కోటి 23 గ్రాముల బరువుంటాయి..”
“..కాదనకుండా మీరు వాటిని స్వీకరించి ఏదో రూపేణా స్వామి వారి కైంకర్యంలో ఉపయోగిస్తే మా కుటుంబం మొత్తానికి కూడా గొప్ప సాయం చేసిన వారవుతారు..మా తండ్రీ తాతగారి ఆత్మలు కూడా శాంతిస్తాయి..ఇది విన్నవించు కుందామనే మీ దగ్గరకు వచ్చాను ..ఇక మీ ఇష్టం..నిర్ణయం మీకే వదిలేస్తున్నాను..”
అంటూ వినమ్రంగా అందరికీ రెండు చేతులెత్తి మరోసారి నమస్కారం చేసి అప్పుడు మెల్లిగా తన చేతిలో ఉన్న ఒక బరువైన సంచీని తీసి ప్రసాద్ ముందున్న టేబుల్ మీద పెట్టాడు షేక్ మస్తాన్ అనబడే ఆ అతి గొప్ప ముస్లిం భక్తుడు..
నిశ్శబ్దం..నిశ్శబ్దం..నిశ్శబ్దం..
గుండెలు పిండేసే నిశ్శబ్దం.. రాతిని కరిగించే నిశ్శబ్దం.. బరువైన నిశ్శబ్దం.. గుండె చెరువైన నిశ్శబ్దం.. నిర్వెదమైన నిశ్శబ్దం… నిలువెల్లా మనిషిని నివ్వెర పరిచే నిశ్శబ్దం.. మనసంతా నిశ్శబ్దం.. మనసుని కలవర పరిచే నిశ్శబ్దం.. గతి తప్పిన నిశ్శబ్దం.. మనసుని గతి తప్పించే నిశ్శబ్దం.. నిశ్శబ్దం.. నిశ్శబ్దం.. నిశ్శబ్దం..
కొన్ని క్షణాల పాటక్కడ ఇంతకంటే వర్ణించటానికి వీలుకాని నిశ్శబ్దం తాండవించింది..అక్కడున్నవారందరూ ఓ మహాశిల్పి చెక్కేసి గదిలో వొదిలేసిన మహాత్ముల శిలా విగ్రహాల్లాగా freeze అయిపోయి కూర్చున్నారు..అక్కడ గది మూలల్లో ఏర్పాటు చేసిన pedestal fans తిరుగుతూ చేసే శబ్దం తప్ప ఆ సమయంలో అక్కడ మరే ఇతర శబ్దం వినిపించటంలేదు..
ఎంతో సాదా సీదాగా కనపడుతూ తమ మధ్యన మామూలుగా నిలబడి ఎన్నో అద్భుత విషయాలు చెప్పిన ఆ గొప్ప శ్రీవారి ముస్లిం భక్తుడి మాటలకు చేష్టలుడిగి పోయి ఉన్నారంతా.. అందరికంటే ముందు తేరుకున్నవాడు పీ వీ ఆర్ కే ప్రసాద్..
“దివినుండి దేవ దేవుడే దిగి వచ్చినాడా..”
అన్న ఒక్క అతి చిన్న అనుమానం లిప్త పాటు కాలంలో ఓ మహోగ్ర రూపం దాల్చిఆయన మనసంతా ఆక్రమించింది..ఇంకొక్క ఉత్తర క్షణం కూడా ఆలస్యం చెయ్యకుండా ఒక్క ఉదుటున లేచి షేక్ మస్తాన్ దగ్గరికి చేరుకున్నారు ప్రసాద్..
కళ్ళనుండి ధారగా కన్నీళ్లు కారిపోతుండగా షేక్ మస్తాన్ రెండు చేతులు పట్టుకొని ఎంతో ఆర్త్రతతో,”మస్తాన్ గారూ..మమ్మల్ని దయచేసి క్షమించండి..మీరెవరో తెలీక ఇంతసేపూ మిమ్మల్ని నిలబెట్టే మాట్లాడించాను..రండి ..” అంటూ ముందు తన కుర్చీ దగ్గరికి తీసుకెళ్ళి తన పక్కనున్న కుర్చీలో కూర్చోపెట్టుకుని ఆ తరువాత మెల్లిగా ఇట్లా అన్నారు..
“మస్తాన్ గారు..ఇక్కడున్న మేమంతా మా సర్వీసులో ఎంతో మంది గొప్ప గొప్ప భక్తుల్ని చూసాం..కానీ మీ అంతటి అద్వితీయమైన భక్తుడ్నిమాత్రం ఇప్పుడే చూస్తున్నాం..ఒక రకంగా మిమ్మల్ని చూడగలగటం మా పూర్వజన్మ సుకృతం అనుకోండి..బహుశా మిమ్మల్ని ఆ శ్రీనివాసుడే మా దగ్గరికి పంపించాడేమో..ఎవరికి తెలుసు..”
“..కానీ నాదొక విన్నపం..ఈ అమూల్యమైన బంగారు తామర పూలను TTD తరఫున ఒక బాధ్యత కలిగిన ఆఫీసర్ గా నేను తప్పకుండా స్వీకరిస్తాను..కానీ వీటిని స్వామి వారి సేవలో వెంటనే ఉపయోగిస్తామని మాత్రం ఈ క్షణం లో మీకు మాటివ్వలేను.. ఎందుకంటే పేరుకి మేము కూడా శ్రీవారి సేవకులమే అయినా ప్రభుత్వం తరఫున బాధ్యతలు నిర్వర్తిస్తున్నాం కాబట్టి మాకు కొన్ని పరిమితులుంటాయి.. వాటిని అధిగమించటానికి మాకు చాలానే సమయం పడుతుంది..”
“అయినా సరే.. ప్రయత్నలోపం లేకుండా నా వంతు కృషి చేసి వీలున్నంత తొందరగా మీ పని పూర్తి చేసి మీకు కబురు పెడతాను.. ఏం చేస్తాననేది మాత్రం ఇప్పుడే చెప్పలేను..మీరు మీ అడ్రస్సు ఫోన్ నెంబర్ మాకిచ్చి వెళ్ళండి..మిగతా విషయాలు నేను చూసుకుంటాను..అంతవరకూ కాస్త ఓపిక పట్టండి..”
అంటూ షేక్ మస్తాన్ రెండు చేతులూ పట్టుకొని ప్రసాద్ ఇట్లా అన్నారు..
” మస్తాన్ గారు.. చివరగా ఒక్క మాట.. ప్రస్తుతం మీకూ మీ కుటుంబ సభ్యులందరికీ కూడా ఇక్కడ మా వాళ్ళు దర్సనం వసతి ఏర్పాటు చేస్తారు..హాయిగా మీ స్వామి వారిని దర్శించుకొని వెళ్ళండి..thank you very much..”
ఉపసంహారం
ఆ తరువాత పనులన్నీ చకచకా జరిగిపొయినయి.. ఇంకో రెండు మూడు మీటింగుల తర్వాత చివరికి శ్రీ వారికి ఒక కొత్త అర్జిత సేవను ప్రవేశ పెట్టాలని TTD బోర్డు ఏకగ్రీవంగా తీర్మానించింది..ఆ సేవలో భాగంగా స్వామి వారికి వారానికొకసారి అష్టోత్తర శతనామ పూజ జరపబడుతుంది..
ఆ పూజలో స్వామి వారి 108 పేర్లను ఒక్కొక్కటిగా పటిస్తూ షేక్ మస్తాన్ కుటుంబం సమర్పించిన ఒక్కొక్క బంగారు తామర పూవును పూజారులు స్వామి వారి పాదాల మీద ఉంచుతారు..TTD ఈ ఆర్జిత సేవను 1984 లో స్వామి వారికి తమ స్వర్మోత్సవపు కానుకగా ప్రవేశ పెట్టింది..
శ్రీ వారి పట్ల షేక్ మస్తాన్ కుటుంబానికున్న గొప్ప భక్తి వలన స్వామి వారికి ఒక కొత్త ఆర్జిత సేవ ప్రారంభం అవటమే కాకుండా అదే కుటుంబం వలన TTD బోర్డుకి కూడా తమ స్వర్ణోత్సవ సంవత్సరాన్ని తిరుమ
ల శ్రీవారి ఆలయ చరిత్రలో ఎప్పటికీ గుర్తుండిపోయేలా జరుపుకొనే ఒక గొప్ప సదవకాశం లభించింది..
గత 30 సంవత్సరాలకు పైగా ప్రతి మంగళవారం స్వామి వారికి జరపబడే ఈ సేవలో ఇప్పటికీ షేక్ మస్తాన్ ఇచ్చిన బంగారు తామర పూలనే వాడతారు..కాలక్రమేణా ఈ సేవ భక్తుల్లో ఎంతో ప్రాముఖ్యాన్ని సంతరించుకుంది..మొదట్లో ఈ సేవను “అష్టదళ స్వర్ణ పద్మ పూజ” అని పిలిచినా ఇప్పుడది “అష్టదళ పాద పద్మారాధన సేవ” గా మరింత ప్రాముఖ్యాన్ని సంతరించుకుంది..
