WISDOM OF THE DAY thread

In Vedic/Hindu religion/philosophy, one often reads/hears that desire is the root cause of reincarnation and misery. However, the religion while praising the wily Vishnu only recommends cessation of desire (not action though) to supposedly end the cycle of reincarnation and misery.

On the other hand the law of Karma says you will reap what you sow, but not necessarily when you expect it.

After a decade of reflection on the law of Karma, the wise sage Dhuracharya has determined that wily Vishnu uses law of Karma and your own desire to play tricks on you.

Responding to the stimulus around you, you crave for something or desire it strongly and work hard to achieve that (skill/money/punnya whatever) and you have accumulated good karma for THAT particular cause/objective. Now, in your next birth, even if you are born with that strong skillset, you can still be a TOTAL LOSER...this because you (even if human) are thrust into the environment where this skill is totally useless.

For example, say you have mastered how to multiply 123456789 with 34334145 in less than 5 seconds and are born with this skill in present age. Next thing you know is that you struggle to use and master modern devices like computers etc because your strong skillset is also acting as a barrier in education. You are now recognized as an idiot savant and may gain 5 min of fame in Guinness Book of World Records or such but overall you struggle to make ends meet...

Re: WISDOM OF THE DAY thread

Hindu scriptures give cosmological timelines of different Yugs, and each Yug has different "velocity of time" or rate at which evolution takes place. This is consistent with change/transformation happening at different rates in different Yugs.

Change happens slowest in Sat Yug, whereas it is fastest in Kal Yug.

Therefore, the wise sage Dhuracharya observes that truly intelligent folks tend to be very charitable (in spite of personal hardships) and do penances in Kal Yug, thus accumulating good Karma rather quickly, to spend it slowly in other Yugs. The morons on other hand end up using their good karma rather quickly in Kal Yug, only to find themselves in misery and servitude in other Yugs...the wily Vishnu entices those who he does not like to spend up their good karma in Kal Yug, so he can sleep longer on his snakebed in milky-ocean (or milky way galaxy perhaps)

Re: WISDOM OF THE DAY thread

Even if a person does good or bad, it is ultimately only the Ishwara who is causing them to play out these deeds. The Ishwara is the macro consciousness manifest of this universe and controls each and every thing in this universe.

Note I learned all this by debating with a friend who practices Advaita.

milky-ocean does not symbolize only milky way galaxy but whole universe.

YES the change is FASTEST in kalyuga.just see how much technological change has taken place in the last 200 years.the world many years ago used to be a collection of several kingdoms which constantly used to fight with each other & had relatively no fixed boundaries(wars always change the boundaries)then some kingdoms in europe slowly evolved into nations. today the world is a collection of nations with almost fixed boundaries & where govts. are elected democratically.

I would say the fastest change has taken place towards the end of kalyuga.

Re: WISDOM OF THE DAY thread

The wise sage Dhuracharya had the following intuition during his early morning meditation

Each Yug timeline manifests in fractal form (ad infinitum)...something like this

I. Satyug
Satyug
Satyug
Tretayug
Dwaparyug
Kalyug
Tretayug
Dwaparyug
Kalyug
II. Tretayug
III.Dwaparyug
IV. Kalyug

This model may explain why the traditional Hindu cosmology and that explained by Sri Yukteswar may simultaneously be valid.

How do you get wisdom everyday? What do you read? But, I am liking this thread so far.

If you check the dictionary wisdom is an inborn quality,what we are gaining here is knowledge even if Wisdom is shared.
Wisdom is when and how to use the knowledge.
What DhuruAnna is sharing is knowledge,can we term it as wisdom ?

Asur guru Dhuracharya says....knowledge that is accessed from past lives is Wisdom. It manifests as intuition and is accompanied by a feeling of Deja Vu.

Ok - this thread is more interesting if it remains without this argument. I had read something in this regard and I can produce links later on.
But for now , let us proceed with more wisdom pearls.
