WHY ?

       Why it happens to me ? this is the frequent question asked by most of the people in this world, who believe in god. They say that many are leading a wrong life but they are happy, but I am leading a righteous life still suffering a lot. There is story to explain this behavior of life.
          Once there lived a honest man called Max Muller in London. He was a righteous & rich person. Lot of suffering people got help from him. He was known in the city for his Wisdom and helping tendency.
          He helped many orphanages, old age homes and disabled but he will not publish his name. He had a good wife called Sara and two kids. Every day before going to sleep he will help atleast one person.
          He will pray to god daily, Once in a week prayer will be arranged, lot of people around the city will come to prayer and food will be arranged for them. He was leading such a great life.
          Once he suffered a heavy loss in his business, so he was unable to continue the contribution as before but he continued his prayer. He was suffering for nearly 10 long years but his friends supported him and he regained his business. He lived for ninety years and was dead. Whole city was under grief for his loss.
          Max went to heaven, there he was welcomed by god. God gave him a seat near to him and spoke to him. God was happy with him, god told he liked Max as he had obeyed god’s commands. God showed Max life as a vision, there Max saw two persons foot impression on sand way. Max enquired about it. God told one impression was Max’s & the other impression was god himself.
          For a short span of vision only one persons foot impression was there. Max enquired,” Oh God! Why do you leave me during my hard days”. God told smilingly, “ You fool ! I was carrying you during your hard time that’s why you see only my foot impression”. Tears started to roll on Max’s eyes. He fall at god’s feet and seeked God’s blessings.
          Moral of the story is “God will test good people but he will never let them down, He will give lot to evil people but he will let them down”, So you got the answer for Why ? right. So always lead a good life by helping the needy.

SHIVA TEMPLE RUN


         Are you surprised to hear the title ? Yes, It’s true. In southern tip of India, in district of Kanyakumari, lot of people run during the ‘Shivarathri Day’. They are doing worship by running to a dozen of shiva temples. To know the reason behind this run, we need to travel to the past, around 5000 years ago the story line starts.
        After Kurushetra war Pandavas won the battle, Yudhistra became emperor of the throne and he conducted a ‘Raja-Suya Yaga’. Emperor need to win all the kingdoms by friendship or through war. All the kings accepted his emperorship. There was a small forest left behind, it was under the control of Sage Vyakra-Patha (Tiger-Legs- I’ll tell about his story later) in southern tip of India called Kanyakumari.
        Bheema, one among Pandavas was a Strong person. He had an ego that he was the strongest man. Lord Krishna Knew about this, he want to crush Bheema’s ego and teach Sage Vyakra-Patha about the truth of worship, so he planned a scene.
         Lord Krishna asked Bheema to invite Sage Vyakra-Patha (staunch Shiva devotee) to their yaga since sage should accept Yudishtra as emperor. Lord Krishna gave 12 Rudraksha beads to Bheema, told a plan and Bheema left to Sage’s place.
          Bheema saw Sage Vyakra-Patha worshipping Lord Shiva, Bheema shouted ‘Govinda, Gopala’, Sage’s worship was disturbed on hearing this, Sage started to chase bheema, sage caught him with his tiger hands, Bheema was unable to escape from sage’s strong hold, he some how escaped from his clutches and started running by shouting ‘Govinda, Gopala’ continuosly. When Sage came near him, he kept one Rudraksha on the ground, it turned into a Shiva Linga, on seeing Shiva linga sage started worshipping it. Again Bheema shouted ‘Govinda, Gopala’, Sage started chasing him. Same thing happened again and again, all 12 Rudrakshas turned into Shiva Lingams.
          At last Bheema was caught by Sage Vyakra-Patha, one leg of Bheema was in sage’s border and other in Pandavas border. Now Yudhistra told sage had caught Bheema, pleased with Yudhistra’s judgement, Sage Vyakra-Patha left Bheema and blessed pandavas.  
          The 12th Shiva Linga gave darshan as ‘Shankara-Narayana’ to Pandavas and the Sage Vyakra-Patha. So Bheema’s ego was crushed and Sage Vyakra-Patha realized Lord Shiva and Lord Narayana are one and the same.
          Thus came ‘Shiva Temple Run’, devotees start running on the early morning of shivarathri day for nearly 80 KMS with in a day and worship all 12 shiva temples on the way. The run starts from ‘Muni Chirai Shiva temple’ and end at ‘Thiru Natalam Shiva temple’.
           Moral of the story is One should be free of ego and broad minded & respect god’s of all religion, in order to get darshan of god.

OUR WILL or GOD'S WILL


          There are two opinions, one opinion is  Man can do anything in his life by his free will. Another opinion is man can do anything only through god’s will, We humans are like doll in god’s hand.
                In all religious books these two opinions had been said in brief. We are bit confused by this two opinions. This truth can’t be easily understood, but this question was asked to a great saint in India, he told a story to explain this in detail.
                Humans speak about free will in detail but truly everything happens based on god’s will. It’s like a cow tied to a post. It can do anything with in its limits. Humans will depends on god’s will.
                Once great Rishi Naradha went to see God Narayana in Vaigunda. There he argued with God for an important matter. God Narayana became angry and cursed Naradha to go to hell. Sage Naradha was very sad on hearing this.
                Sage Naradha praised lord and asked, ”Oh God! Please tell me the way to hell”. God was pleased with his devotion, he drew a map on the floor, indicated ‘hell’ and ‘heaven’ on that map and showed it to Naradha. Naradha pointed to the hell in the map and asked the God,” God! Is this hell ?”. God replied,” Yes! It is”.
                Suddenly Naradha fell on the floor and rolled over ‘Hell’ as indicated by God and he told he had gone to hell. God asked Naradha, “how you went to hell”. Sage replied,” Dear God! You had created Hell and Heaven, You had drew the world map on the floor, indicated ‘Hell’ & ‘Heaven’, told to me ‘this is hell’, I had rolled over the hell, so I had gone to hell”.
                Sage Naradha rolled over the hell with full devotion and belief in God’s words. So God accepted Sage’s explanation.
                Moral of the story is our will depends on god’s will. God’s will is a great support to our will.

                        Sage Naradha was walking along the forest. Siddha saw sage naradha, he bowed to him and asked him, where he was going ? Sage Naradha replied he was going to Vaikuntha for the darshan of Lord MahaVishnu. He became more serious on hearing this. He asked Naradha to enquire the Lord, when he will get moksha (birth less state) ? Naradha consented for it.
                        Sage naradha walked fast but he was stopped by Buddha. Buddha bowed to him and asked where he was going ? Sage replied he was going to Vaikuntha.

                        Naradha returned from vaikuntha to meet Siddha. Naradha told siddha that he has to wait for 3 more births to attain moksha. Siddha became sad and lamented that he had done penance for many years but still he has 3 more births.
                        Naradha met Buddha. Naradha pointed to a Banyan tree in the forest, told Buddha had to wait as many births as leaves in that banyan tree.
Buddha was very happy on hearing this. Sage naradha was surprised to see this. Buddha danced like anything while singing that god is going to give him moksha so soon. Lord MahaVishnu was very much pleased by Buddha’s words. He appeared in front of him immediately and granted him moksha.

                   LIFE  - This is like a mirror. Let me tell you a story to explain this. Once a man named Jim walked along a forest. There he saw a  beautiful tree with branches spread along the sky. He was tired, so he ate his lunch and lied down under the tree shades.
                   After waking up, he started to think. First, he thought, he was lying on a cushion bed, to his surprise suddenly he was lying on a cushion bed. Secondly, he thought, maids were fanning him, it also happened. Thirdly, he thought, he was a king, he became a king. He was surprised to see all his thought become real.
                    At last he thought, what will happen if a tiger appears ? suddenly a tiger appeared and it tore Jim into pieces and everything was over. Jim was lying under a ‘Boon Tree’. He didn’t realize that so he was no more.
                    Moral of the story is Life and mind  are like a boon tree. If you think positive then good incidents happen and vice versa. So Be Positive.
