Life is a Big ?

Hm…Amaam. Life is a big mystery, isn’t it? . We never know what has happened for what reason…We never know why this is happening …We never know what is waiting and why it should happen…Is it for good or Bad???
Many such questions arise when we think about life. I read this while I was trying to spend an evening with my MP3 and THIS book .
There is this story. In heaven there is this parallel mountain to the Himalayas. And we call a king Chakravarthi/Chakaravartin if he is accepted as the superior when his golden Chariot- Ratha ,Very valuable, with beautiful and really strong Horses is allowed to pass through the other kingdom. If the other king feels he is no way inferior to this king he could interrupt this chariot .The chariot would move around through all the other kingdoms, and whenever people obstructed the chariot then there would be WAR.This way once in a thousand years will may/may not be a Charavarthi. So coming back to the mountain….That mountain in the heaven is called the Sumeru.Sumeru means the ultimate mountain , nothing can be higher that that.It is solid gold, instead of rocks there are diamonds,rubies and emeralds. Once one such great King became a Chakravarthi. Whenever the Chrakravarthi dies he is led to the Sumeru mountain to engrave his name on it. SO our king was so excited that he got this very very rare opportunity-To engrave his name on the sumeru mountain, the ultimate catalog of all the great ones that have been. The gatekeeper gave him instructions to engrave his name on the Sumeru. The Chakravarthi, he wanted to take some of his men with him who had committed suicide just because their emperor was dying – they could not think of living without him. His Wife ( Remember this happened so many thousands of years ago…SO yes HIS WIFE !!) , His PM, His commander in chief and some of his loyal servants so they had all come with him. But the gate keeper said “ No sir. First you go inside , engrave your name and then if you really insist you could take them all later. Listen to my advice, because this is an inherited profession.For centuries our family had been the gate keeper” Our Chakravarthi accepted this deal for it sounded fair.

He went and saw the sumeru shining under thousands of sun for the heaven is so rich it had not just one sun. He could not open his eyes for a moment, it was so glaring there. And then he started looking for a site – the best spot to engrave his name, he was very much puzzled-he could not believe his own eyes and for the first time he became aware of what he was. There was No space!! Every single inch had a chakravarthi’s name engraved. He was very disappointed ,for himself and his people outside were under the impression that he is the greates man- the chakravarthi that happens once in 1000 yrs.So he now realized why the Gatekeeper insisted he should go alone first- for his people are under the impression that he has become the hakravarthi and may be the first or in the top 10 . The King came outside and told the gatekeeper “There is no Space!! The entire mountain is filled will names. It is shocking. What do I do??”
The Gatekeeper said ”That’s what I was telling you. History is eternal, infinite! You did not expect too many Chakravarthis. Did you? You have to erase few names and then engrave your’s there. That’s what was being done, my whole life I have been seeing this doney father used to say this was being done.” Then the King sadi “ Oh…then I don’t want to write my name and I don’t want to take them all inside. Whats the point?- Someday some one will come and earse it.My whole life has become utterly meaningless.This was my only hope, that Sumeru,the golden mountain was going to have my name.For this I have lived,for this I have staked my life; for this I was ready to kill the whole world.And anybodyelse can erase it. Am not writing my name then”
The gate keeper once again laughed and said “This is strange, because this too I have been hearing from my grandfathers- Chakravarthis come here, hear the whole story and just leave not writing their names on Sumeru. You are not new: anybody having a little intelligence would do the same”
Many of us are like this chakravarthi. It may not be the wars or chariot that are the similarities between us and him. But what do we all gain from this world. When we leave what do we take with us – the money? The power? The name, prestige, responsibility?? The Scholarship?? We cannot take any of these. Everything will have to be drooped here..even your love.And in that moment we will understand that all that we possessedwas not ours.The very idea of possession was wrong.And because of that possession we were corrupted. To increase our possession we lie, we pretend, we were dishonest, having many faces, had been faking. Because these are the things that help us succeed in this competitive world. SO finally who are we?? This whole possessiveness becomes our identity. We lose the SELF!! It gives a false sense of being.That’s Ego!!
And in life many times we face darkness and what do we all do…Think about how can we remove Drakness? But we do not realize that DARKNESS does not exist…Only light exists. Put off the light- darkness is there , put the light on – darkness is not there. So think about how you can turn the light ON! Don’t think about darkness. It will make you feel defeated. How can you be defeated by something that has no Existence. Only the light Exist. In the absence of light – darkness is there. But make sure the light is never OFF!!

That’s all for now Folks!!! Remember- concentrate in turning the LIGHT ON and having it ON forever!! Don’t think about darkness……
Tips on living a life that really is worth living and to say with Pride ‘You lived it.’

*Live your life for yourself and so it would make others live their life. But do not harm any1 in the process!
* Live everyday like you never have a tomorrow
*Do not fake! Do not do things that you don’t feel like doing, that you feel may not be nice, may not be correct, ,may not be appropriate.
* Do only those that you feel is right in life.
* Never Ditch or Betray!! May be you could get promoted or graded more. But in life You are an ultimate LOZER! Do not ditch…..It is the worst.
To betray is like killing a hundred Elephants for Trust is not made easily and the trustee is not going to be easy at handling Betrayal.
* If you feel someone is not correct and is trying to harm you indirectly, then don’t ever put a fake smile and speak. Instead don’t speak !!
* Never hurt some one who does not deserve it, do not take a persons soft/kind nature for granted. The person may speak to you again, but remember you are a sinner, he had been so patient and great to excuse you, forgive you! To be forgiven is a great feeling of relief but to forgive is the greatest of all!!! You have made him Great!!
* Do not hesitate to apologise or show love. If you see this begger in the street who seems very calm and there is a small voice inside asking you to help him….Just DO IT!! Do not hesitate where what or with whom you are or even with what you help.
*In short, don’t do any deed that could make you feel what our Chakravarthy had felt at the gates “. Whats the point?- Someday some one will come and earse it.My whole life has become utterly meaningless.This was my only hope, that Sumeru,the golden mountain was going to have my name.For this I have lived,for this I have staked my life; for this I was ready to kill the whole world.” Just be good!! And here is a punch line “ Love your people like you will never have another day with them.” Most of the times people who fall in love and get married are the worst. Their Marriage would turnout to be a disaster….Why because they change so much after marriage and their EGO stands first than anything else.Both men and women. But especially women, how many of the Men after their marriage live with that GIRL whom they fell in love with??!! Although physically it’s the same body. But how many change so much that you cannot believe “Idhudhaana andha ponnu?”(Is this that girl??) ……
*Forget and forgive!!
Live Your life! Live it - like you may never have a tommorow

First time visiting your blog. I came through Arvind's blog. I am impressed by your thoughts at this young age. It is nice to know young people like you having good thoughts like this. If every human being realises the facts of life, then we should not have any problem. But again, everyone is different. It is so difficult to make others understand this. Anyhow, I liked your attempt. Let us continue this.

Marutham said...
