100% - शत प्रतिशत

Are you sure? 100% sure?

Every day we encounter this question, and we try to respond by yes, no or maybe; The beauty of life is, it has never ending questions, sometimes answers are in choices or sometimes, it's just situations, but we move on.

Ever since I remember about my inquisitive mind and the first set of questions i had in my childhood days like: Why Earth is round?

Why can't I fly? Chakras, Tatvas, Mythology and so on..

I did faced many troubles because of this never ending thrust of knowing everything, felt contentment and emptiness at the same time. 

With time I understood, how decision making works, In order to decide what you want, first decide what you don't want, and this methodology worked well with me. My education, career, or life partner are some beautiful examples of it.

Concluding this blog post by quoting a wonderful poem by Swami Vivekananda, which I read in my school and it literally changed the way I perceive everything:

"When I asked God for strength
He gave me difficult situations to face


When I asked God for brain & brawn
He gave me puzzles in life to solve


When I asked God for happiness
He showed me some unhappy people

When I asked God for wealth
He showed me how to work hard

When I asked God for favours
He showed me opportunities to work hard

When I asked God for peace
He showed me how to help others

God gave me nothing I wanted
He gave me everything I needed."

Satyam Shivam Sundaram

सत्यम शिवम् सुन्दरम Satyam, the truth; shivam, the good, the divine;and sundaram, the beauty.
Truth is the experience, shivam is the action that comes out of the experience, and beauty is the flowering of consciousness of the man who has experienced truth.

Shiva is regarded as the patron god of yoga and arts. At the highest level, Shiva is regarded limitless, transcendent, unchanging and formless.

Iconographic attributes of Shiva are the third eye on his forehead, the snake Vasuki around his neck, the crescent moon adorning, the holy river Ganga flowing from his matted hair, the trishula as his weapon and the damaru as his instrument. Shiva is usually worshiped in the aniconic form of Lingam aka Shivlinga
Mahashivarathri, "the Great Night of Shiva" is the most significant event in India's spiritual calendar.The festival which is in veneration of Lord Shiva, marks the day when the supreme lord married Maa Parvati and together the form of Ardhanarishvara came into existence.

Pehla Sukh - निर्मल मन, निरोगी तन

Despite the difficulties and the challenges that would cause the most to give up,
there are few who dare to think of the well-being and the care for others, and devote them to the service of society & mankind.
This post is about a woman, who suffered from cancer, but after that, she is not only living her life to its fullest but also inspires many with a different perspective towards life.
In the year 1999, a woman came to know that she is having cancer, and it's difficult for her to survive, as the operation was risky & there was no permanent cure at that time, then she smiled and said:
“Don’t worry doctor I already had 6 operations,
this would be nothing, just an addition to that number”.

She survived and it took 3 years to recover completely, while there was only her willpower that saved her and gave her the strength to overcome.
After that, she decided to devote her life to the cancer patients. Her motive was to break clutter and misconceptions in the society & to spread a…
