When I sit in the morning outside on the deck of my boat,before the majestic purple of the mountains crowned with the morning light,I know that I am eternal that I am ananda-rupam.
My true form is not that of flesh and blood,but of joy.In the world where we habitually live,the self is so predominant that everything in it is of our own making and we starve because we have to feed upon ourselves. To know the truth is to become true;there is no other way.When we live the life of self,it is not possible for us to realize truth.
“Come out,come away.” This is the urgent cry we have in our soul-the cry in the blood of the chick,living in its shell.
These lines are from the book “Letters to Friend” by Rabindranath Tagore from page no 71 when he was in Srinagar Kashmir(October 1915).I don’t have any words or story to take a dig ,just a prevailing silence and willing to share with the readers.

I am so glad that I took out some time from the daily routine and after a good walk settled myself in a local cafe to start writing down the notes from book “Letters to Friend”.Clearly it seems to be back in school days but this time all the questions of future has taken the back seat itself and to qualify as a seeker is the only way to match with the vibes of the book.
The two texts caught my attention straightway.
A Little background:These text from the holy books were gift from tagore to his friend when they both planned to go together to Fiji and carry an independent inquiry into indenture system of Indian Labour.
From Joy all things have origin: in Joy they subsists and unto Joy they return.I mediate upon His Glory,who creates the earth,the sky and the stars and sends into our minds the power of comprehension.

Thank you so much.
This book is definitely full of comic sense and on the top of that the work of poetry is an added gem.
Now the question is how it proves?
The setting of story starts from the conversation of Aksh(husband) and Puro(wife) gives headstart in terms how Aksh previous member of a bachelor’s group vowed to never think about women ended up in marriage.
Aksh ‘s character did the very good job of filling the conversation with four lines of poetry every time when other characters are confused or in slight anger especially his wife. I would agree,A merrier person that even the married men will envy,these lines in book completely suits him.
I couldn’t find any media attachment in English. The dialogues between Aksh and prospective bride grooms were not just hilarious but reveals the full hippocratic nature which ended by another funny statement of Aksh that “as soon I slapped their back their tails began to wiggle”.The story had been to the point so far and a family’s way of doing comic sense reminds me time when brothers,sisters and other relatives all sit together,pull each other legs from memories or from a family situation.
Reading this book reminds me of the time when I was watching TV series of Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai,a family comedy,in which different characters or different situations fueled more excitement and laughter.I don’t have relevant media but this trailer of Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai(second version) will give you idea the crazy stuff I am enjoying.
Buy/Borrow:I am posting the amazon affiliate link as well or it is available to borrow from your local library,then I must recommend.

Eyes are wet,so desires are as well.
Love is asking me to forget everything because you are more precious than your high and low levellings.
Please speak through my eyes what’s the truth become my essence to live or to give up absolute.
Nothing last long except love so not to forget which is no-one your soul itself.
The last scene in MEERA movie fills my eyes with tears.This last scene totally justifies the fact when Bhakti becomes life then there are no if and buts left.In this scene the most touching aspect is when Meera was given a bowl of poison to drink in front of everyone following the order by established Dharam guru which she accepted it with full grace and amazed everyone on failure of punishment, proves her unshakeable faith in Krishna.
When bhakti take such a powerful form then there is no question of life/death,no pondering over right/wrong,sorrow/happiness,success/failure is left, as soul has taken over the full control.
There is no question of even Yoga left because every moment soul is peaceful & full of love which is ultimate aim of Yogis to achieve.
Oh Shri Hari I can’t compare myself against Meera. Meera, who gave up all the comforts of life to just follow the soul’s desire which is one and only you Shri Hari. Oh Shri Hari, I don’t know, how far I have come along on this path but one day this soul will be tired and restless by worldly love & desires which sometimes increase or decrease then oh saware ,allow your mercy to awaken the Meera inside me, discarding trembling over births, dancing freely in your loving madness.
Writing about the glories of Shri Krishna always immerse me with love ,which every time proves that my soul has always been thirsty for.This beautiful story of a Fruit seller and Krishna,I feel closely related to me.
Oh Krishna,I don’t know that from how many numerous birth my basket of emotions just like this fruit seller ,which passed from one phase to another was burdened with worldly manifestations.I totally compare myself with this fruit seller who look tired and hopeless after many unsuccessful attempts of selling fruits.All her suffering comes to an end when she entered into your abode.Smitten by your innocence freed her from all the fruits of her deeds, which let her to accept the price that you agreed.
Soaked in the ocean of love,this ultimate sale directed her to choose the service of your lotus feet.Oh Krishna this is what attracts you, the purity of basket, which is nothing but the heart indeed,that’s why you filled her basket with all the fortune that she was in need.
Oh Hari ,please bestow your mercy upon me allowing this sinful soul to empty its basket of deeds,which was always full of why this or that but was never why not you,why not you to let this soul enriched with tears of being so lovingly.
Absolutely delightful conversation.I loved it.
The most attractive part of love is its ability to happen or manage itself.This is what we actually seek all the time but it gets limited when we continuously depend on the external world to realise its true nature.
This what makes me feel the beauty of human life that we actually have brilliant nature of search for reasons.As our original nature is nothing but 100% Management Free Love,this video explain the right technique to achieve this.
