Some emotions which can't be shared through a conversation, still you don't want to bury within and yet you wish to share. Through my blog, I share voice, text and imagery, in ways and times when I feel my unborn ideas deserve a hatchery. It's possible to get back in time, unfreeze these ideas, and take them forward. Ideas are often not as complicated and delicate as humans. Access some of me through my creations.

OM Namaha Shivaya OM Namaha Shivaya OM Namaha Shivaya
I bow to you O Lord Shiva, guardian of the south-east and ruler of the universe, all pervading, manifested as the Vedas, unborn, beyond attributes, you who are universal consciousness, desire-less, surrounding space itself. I bow to the supreme Lord who is formless, omnipresent, beyond words, understanding and the senses: the origin of the sound OM, beyond time itself, terrible yet gracious, the abode of all virtue
He whose body is as pure as the snow clad mountain, whose head sparkles with the holy Ganga. Whose forehead is adorned with the moon and neck with serpents, I adore Him.He whose eyes are large and beautiful, who has a blue-throat, who has a lion’s skin around his waist and a garland of skulls, I adore Him who is the universal Lord and loved by all.I surrender to the supreme lord of Parvatee, terrible in the face of evil, indivisible, unborn, brilliant as innumerable suns, who destroys three types of agony, who holds a trishul in His hands. Immeasurable, auspicious, destroyer of creation at the end of each cycle, source of bliss to the virtuous, personification of consciousness and bliss, dispeller of delusion, be gracious O Lord. So long as men do not worship the lotus feet of the Lord of Uma, there is no happiness, nor peace nor the end of sorrow, therefore be gracious O Lord Shiva who dwells in the heart of all beings.I do not know yoga, jaap nor puja, I simply bow to you at all time and at every moment, please protect me O Lord Shiva.This hymn of eight verses was uttered by the Brahman in worship of Lord Shiva. Lord Shambhu is pleased with those who devoutly recite it.
Asked as a mere phrase by a friend, "Takers eat well....Givers sleep well."The phrase sounds catchy to me, and I am finding a sense of deeper meaning hidden beneath....lets take a dive..... So what this probably means......Lets analyze..
Taker: One who is ready to accept.One who accepts things as they are. One who accepts things without ego coming in between. One who has its wants, his desires before his resistance.
He might be a beggar, a pet animal or a prostitute.he might be helpless,he might not be bothered, or simply he might not be strong enough. He might be the one who takes loan with no hopes of returning it. He might be one even not expecting something from the taker,but if things keep coming, he embraces them, accepts them. He consumes them.he is happy with the way life is going.
So, A taker eats well.
Giver:One who is ready to donate,say; simply give away.One who doesn't accepts things as they are,he/she might try to change it into a better state. One who rejects a…
It has often been suggested by my dear friend HariOm about the devotional obsessive behaviour of River which drives her to go and dissolve in the Ocean. Here is his couplet: "ऐसा भी क्या दीवानापन ऐसा भी क्या प्यार नदी, सागर से मिलने जाती है तू ही क्यों हर बार नदी ?" This often made me wonder the emotions behind depicting this as thoughtless one side obsession of river, which consists of pristine, pure, soft water - to drift and submerge in the vast ocean, which is wild, salty, destructive, immense, unimaginably different and rough.
Well, I figured it out, that it's just a figment of human imagination, and we obviously ignore the real basis of this process. It's not love, it higher than that. It's creation. It's about making sure everything functions.
And even though it looks like a mere one-sided journey, ocean play's its fair role in creating, strengthening and charting the very path of the river.
There is always a better reason for why things happen the wa…
