The ancient History and science in it- from the lens of my recent travel experience

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. – Genesis 1:27

So I am occupied with the concept of our Ancient History and our origin recently. Not for the first time though, but for surely for the first time in 2016. I often time travel my thoughts back to those days when our civilization was still in its initial phase. How step by step we transformed ourselves and gained knowledge from and about our environment. But still I always doubt our origin and our purpose! Okay, let me be clear why all these things are now echoing in my brain. Actually I visited an Ancient temple with my family last week. The temple is near to Samalkot, East Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh, South India.  I was amazed by the serene beauty the temple offered, but was shocked when the Pandit of the temple told that this temple was built around 9000 years ago. I was like, come again?! It is a Vishnu temple as said by the Pandit. He gave us a pamphlet and this is how he described the temple’s history to us.

Once upon a time there was a deep forest named Keekaranyam. A child named Dhruva lived there. He was the son of the king of that place. The mother of Dhruv was Suneeta. Dhruv’s step mother was against the decision of Dhruv becoming the king. Once Suneeta called Dhruv and told “You are meant to become the King and rule the kingdom in a great manner. For that you have to pray and perform austerity to Lord Maha Vishnu and get his blessings. With his blessings you will become the king. So start praying to him.”

By listening to this, Dhruv moved to Muni Sandilya ashram. Muni knowing Dhruv’s mind, called Dhruv. Then muni told Dhruv that “My son, You start praying to the divine form of Lord Vishnu. Perform Austerity to him. He will appear and fulfill your wish.” Then Dhruv started praying to Lord Vishnu. After some period, impressed by the prayers of Dhruv, Lord Vishnu appeared in front of Dhruv. But by seeing the divine and shining light of Lord Vishnu, Dhruv being a child got frightened. Seeing this Lord Vishnu spoke, “Son, Why are you afraid? I am in you. I am the same size as yours. Don’t worry” and saying this he reduced the intensity of his light and appeared in the form same as Dhruv’s height. Then he pressed the cheeks of the child, blessed him and turned into a statue. So because of this incidence, this statue is also called Shrungara Vallabha Swamy. It is also referred by the name “Tholi Tirupati”, which literally means “First Tirupati”. It is said that it was the first ever statue form of Lord Vishnu. Even some celebrities have visited this place and this temple was of great importance. Some of them include RudramaDevi, Vikramaarkulu and Queen Victoria. And Queen Victoria said that when her husband saw the statue, it appeared as 6 feet to him as he was 6 feet. It is also often said that the statue appears same the height of the viewer. Later idols of goddess Lakshmi Devi and Bhudevi were installed near the idol of Lord Vishnu. I too observed the statue as my height. But for that we have to stand at a distance. When I saw it from the place from where it is said to be seen, it appeared as if the ground is slightly sloped or at an angle, which made our point of view coincide with the statue’s place appearing to us as the same height.

When the Pandit finished his description I was in that place but my imagination has reached the sky. I mean to the stars. When he mentioned the name Dhruv, the first thing that came in my mind was Dhruva taara story which translates as Dhruva star. The story which we learned as children and were fascinated about the story. The story goes like this, Dhruv wanted to be seen by everyone in the world, so God converted him into a star, the brightest star! And also this history mentions that Dhruv got frightened with the divine light of Lord Vishnu. Who knows this may be same Dhruv, just imagining.  Who knows he may have diverted from his wish and desired to be a star. Let your thoughts wander just as mine did.

But what happened next was the real wonder. When I saw the surroundings of the temple, I was like Oh My! It was mystical. Beautiful carvings, unreadable scriptures, some amazing sculptures and what not! It seemed as if I have stepped into an another world. There were many carvings which appeared to me strange. There was a well on the left side of the backyard and it is believed that couples who don’t have children can get blessed with a child if they bath with this water. Amazing! But one scene which left me wondering was an area which resembled like a Dam. Don’t get me wrong but it is my honest opinion on this. You can see the resemblance below in the pics. It means this could be the oldest dam in the world or may be not. There are dozens of pillars with some unreadable scriptures on them. I tried to use my intelligent mind here but all attempts went futile. I just took a pic of one of them and kept it for future use. Then I saw the Dhwaja Stambam of the temple which honestly appeared strange to me. This was quite different than what I saw in other temples. This had some horizontal lines at regular intervals which looked like stages of a rocket launch. I touched many of the carvings of the temple but it felt like they were made of some different material. There were many small statues which looked strange to me. And there was also a ventilator to the left extreme left corner of the temple. And coming to the statue of Lord Vishnu aided by his two wives, was so bright and in a smiling posture. Pandit opposed me when I was about to take the photo. The shanka and Chakra were on the opposite sides when compared to the regular idols of Vishnu. For one moment I imagined shanka as the sound generator when the engine starts or blows horns and Chakra as the wheel or steering handle. That adventurous visit to the temple was amazing and mystical. Some parts of the temple were modernized though for convenience.

But when I came home I wanted to know more about this temple. We visited this temple as my father’s friend told my father about it. I searched it on internet and got little information, though I found myself landing into a new different world of a show called Ancient Aliens. First I started laughing and then slowly my laugh disappeared. My eye brows got raised. I moved near to the screen. That one dialogue was enough, “Are we the Sons of Aliens? Do Aliens landed on Earth and taught us about the science they knew about? Were they more developed than us then? Were they the one, who opened the knowledge gate for us and transformed our evolution process? Do we speak their language?” These questions from videos of Ancient Aliens made me mad. There have been wide spread belief that Gods came from heaven, from the sky! Any bells? Even in Ramayana and Mahabharata there are mentioning of wars that were fought in air. Do they knew how to fly? There are many evidences that the Gods used to travels in flying chariots and Gods had vahanas, which means vehicles. Or they had the knowledge of flying vehicles using which they fought wars. Even Sanjaya from Mahabharata used to see the war proceedings by sitting in the palace itself. They had cameras and transmitters? Devanagari is known to be language from which all languages were made. And Devanagari was the language of Gods. Again I wondered of them. I don’t know to what extent their sayings are true, but they have definitely given me something to ponder upon. I am not saying they are completely true about their words. I also believe in existence of God. There are many edges which are not clear about our ancient culture and origin of humans. We are unaware of our purpose of existence. We were imparted the knowledge of sciences by Gods. Or they were, you say. Just leaving it to your own imagination. Much of the ancient science is hidden under the land of Earth! The science treasure.

I am also a religious person. But I do not follow any one religion, even though being a Hindu. All religions are one and came from the same source. The creators of World. The God. We all are his sons and daughters. No use of fighting for religions and going oblique from their very purpose of formations. Every religion teaches Peace and love. We all are here for a short period and we have to make our life worth-living. People have found money as the base and keep running for it in the opposite direction from their true purpose of their existence. We have to step in our minds and search for our purpose and our origin. Who knows the purpose is waiting for us to be discovered.

And concluding this with one more thing I observed, recently they said that the waves radiated by the Sun make a sound which resembles like “Aum”. Aum is also the most divine sound and all the audible sounds belongs to the space between the mouth beginning from the root of the tongue to the end of the lips. So Aum is the supreme divine sound. And who are we? hUMans! I think you clearly got what I am trying to say here.

So here are some pics I have taken during that temple visit, not a photographer though. The temple which made made think about our existence once again, about humanity, truth and purpose. From yesterday evening I am completely involved in this concept and can’t stop my imagination and unable to limit it. Just hoping to land back on the land of reality from land of imagination with expressing them in words. Thanks for reading.

The colors of life

“The colors of life vary not only in terms of wavelength and intensity, but also in terms of feelings and emotions.” – Jackie Jain

Our feelings vary from time to time,
Creating myriad of colors so sublime.

The intensities of colors are so labile,
and their very nature being versatile.

Sometimes we cry while feeling very happy,
Sometimes we feel relieved only after a cry.

The mixture of feelings forming more colors,
but only proper combinations are the healers.

Some colors are mendacious, looks attractive
but spread greed & misery, making hard to live.

Be aware, don’t go for brightness of those colors,
look for purity bcoz the bright ones quickly devours.

The pure colors never promote or promise anything,
They believe in pure feelings and reflect true loving.

Even the color of the sun changes at different times of day,
Life colors are just a reflection of change in emotional ray.

Colors comes in all sizes of feelings, some are intentional,
some being natural, some being artificial and some occasional.

Colors spread a ray of hope in our life to believe in beauty,
Follow colors of purity, & the rainbow of colors will lead to destiny.

The market of destinies is not unpredictable

Destiny is just like a stock market, we think it is unpredictable but there is always a working principle behind it – Jackie Jain

What if I say destinies are never written by default.
What if they are always being changed time to time!

The up and down of shares of the destiny is the result.
Your character, decisions and thoughts being its cause.

When your determination towards something doesn’t
match your wish for that thing, then it cannot be yours.

When your passion for something exceeds the probability
of that thing written in your destiny by default, it is rewritten.

It is included in the law of universe and it conspires in
helping you achieve it, Yes, just like in the novel of Alchemist.

Your character is the asset, your talent is the capital.
Your life is the company and your decisions are deals.

You are the boss, your situations are the clients.
Your creativity is the product and your karma is the judge.

So these all are the elements in the market of Destinies,
And they all are inter-related and are factors of destiny.

The market of destinies works like stock market, the
way you handle the factors involved and its production.

So never leave anything to destiny, it will never change
the way to you want to change it, unless you work on it.

Build your character, be wise while taking decisions.
Think positive and direct your thoughts towards passion.

Whenever you take an action, think about the consequences,
The actions you take is the handle to the destiny, steer well.

And don’t neglect the people you meet in your life, because
Sometimes your destinies are written on the hand of others.

Every person you come across is for a reason and the reason
being to change your factors of destiny & to drive you towards it.

Join hands with humans, let’s monetize the destinies.
Once this happens, the markets of destinies will never fall.

Let the universe help you in achieving what you want,
Just give universe what it wants. A share of your happiness.

It is your gift of appreciation to the universe, for writing your
destiny. Spread happiness. I think it’s a fair deal. Isn’t it?

What if your senses had no sense in them?

Add a sense to your senses

What if you were able to see, but not able to decide what you were seeing?

What if you were able to listen, but not able to interpret what you were hearing?

What if you were able to smell things but cannot smell the existence of your self!?

What if you were able to taste food, but cannot understand the tastes of people?

What if you felt just the touch of bodies but cannot feel the touch of souls and even worse, your own soul?

Aren’t we great that we are already loaded with these five senses, and that too with an algorithm of what is what! But we take them as granted. We don’t realize their importance. Senses are not like a browser to be explored, they are like a responsibility to be carried out. Browse responsibly. Senses are important to understand the working of our body and functionality of the sensory organs.

There is already a common sense in our senses, now we have to add a sixth sense in our every sense. The sense of importance, the sense of responsibility. There is always a deeper meaning of our senses. Normal way of using our senses is dedicated for our mundane life while the deeper use of our senses should be used for studying life more carefully.

Vision:
Without vision our legs can never set a foot ahead. Our eye sight is the light through which we see the world. So take a step ahead to see the beauty in things rather than the beautiful things.

Hearing:
As they say, listening is an art. And we have to master it. Being on the receivers end, we can dissipate their negativity and problems by just listening to people. Don’t listen what you want to listen from them, listen what they want to tell.

Smell:
We can smell the people by their behavior. It is a saying. But it’s true. Smell in this context means to understand a person. Smell the people, keep a nostril on people’s behavior, if they release the smell of negativity go away from them.

Taste:
By the taste of people we can decide their character. So taste is important factor because their interests reflect their thoughts. And their thoughts reflect their character. So don’t taste people by their colors, taste by their thoughts.

Touch:
They say, all the problems heal just by a touch! Yes that’s true. But not by the touch of just a body, but by the soul in it. We can’t see the souls, but a soul can connect with other souls by just a touch. We can’t see the touch, but we can
feel them. And to feel the touch, we first have to be connected to our souls. So, get in touch with your soul.

Just imagine what if there was no sense in your sense? Horrible.. Isn’t it? So feel lucky. And add sense to your senses. Feel happy about your senses. You have all you want in yourself. Senses are associated with brain and heart and act as the medium of communication between them.  Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend.. 🙂

Company is Love, Mission is Happiness, Vision is Care

Falling is always painful. But if there is anything in this world which can make humans fall in it happily, it should be only one thing. It’s Love. – Jackie Jain

*****
I am waiting for her. She didn’t came in time (she never comes on time anyway though).  But waiting for her is always a good feeling, not because she is away from me right now, but because she is somewhere on her way just to meet me. I am very excited. 2 years ago, we used to go out daily and have spent some quality time together then. But there are always some obstacles which grows with time. Work, has always been the dividing factor between us. Our love for each other is never the question. Our love was, and it is always at peaks, but we we are going through a phase where we are not able to show our love for each other. I just wished that no obstacle spoils my plan today. She called me yesterday morning that she will be on leave the next day, which is today, and she requested me for a movie in the afternoon. I agreed. I called her yesterday afternoon during working hours and told that I will be busy the next day, which is today as my boss wants me to step up and give out a speech report on the growth stats of the company for the last 2 years, so we had to cancel our movie plan. She wasn’t impressed. She was expecting some time together. I told my boss yesterday then that I will be on a leave the next day, which is today. He wasn’t impressed too. But I wanted to impress the boss of my life, which is my wife, much more than anything else. 

Today morning I called her that I forgot my file at home and and all the important data was in that file. Even though she would hate me for working too much, she always appreciates my hard work. She will never let me down. I knew. I told her to bring that file to a place which was near to my office, for an effect. She agreed, half hearted. Now I am waiting for her. My voice box is ready with the speech. I should impress my boss. Because impressing the boss is the key factor for development of relationship. I just wished that she comes early with the file. Words are excited to come out. Then she came, like a beauty I have never seen before. Every time I see her, I feel she is getting more beautiful with age. She was not smiling as she used to always do. The file was right there, in her right hand. She gave the file to me, wished me all the best and turned back to move. I felt that she is in a computer mode today, with no feelings, just do your work and go on. It was time to make her feel happy. It was time to make her feel human. It was time to make her feel loved. It was time to make her laugh.

She was almost 5 steps away from me when she turned back listening to my voice. She turned back and saw me reading out the file content.
“Good morning ladies and gentlemen.. Today I am standing here to give the report of our company called LOVE, which started 5 years ago, owned by ABHIMANYU and RASHMI along with 7 employees ( The seven promises), with happiness as the mission and with care as the vision. Our company took off perfectly from the land and landed in hearts of each other. We had good profits of happiness, good returns on care and we used efficiently the time allotted to us. But from the last two years, our company is facing a crisis. We are not getting funds of time from anywhere as they are being corrupted by the work and by being busy in the work which we are divided. It is difficult to run the company like this. Lot of time is lost in the last two years. Now to recover this huge loss, we have to start spending more time together and sort it out. We are a company with huge expectations from our families and friends. We have to rebuild the company again with happiness and love. To increase the share price which is our bond, we have to work together and spend some time together. I have rejected my wife’s invitation for movie to attend your meeting boss. My wife wanted to spend three hours on seeing other characters, rather than seeing in each other. I can’t bear such loss to the company. So being the boss of the company of our Love, you have to make a change in our meeting times. I will be spending more time with you so that this company grows higher and higher. A company which dreams to touch the sky with happiness and plant down deeper with roots of love. Thank you so much boss. This is my report. Now you have to decide how was my speech and also I love you boss, I have never told this to my wife from 2 years, but today I want to tell you, as you are the boss of our company, and ‘I love you’ being the slogan of our company. I love you.” I bowed and stretched my lips to the full. There were tears in my eyes.

I saw her. She was constantly smiling throughout the speech, but when I finished there were tears in her eyes too. Happy tears, I know. She hugged me and kissed on my forehead. It felt like all the pain in my head got vanished. She is a magician. A beautiful magician.

“I was expecting special, but not this much special. You are smart.. Intelligent.. Loving.. Wow Abhimanyu, you are the greatest hubby.” she said, still tears in her eyes.

I felt happy. Very happy. I am smart. I am loving. But still, how she expected that something special was on the way. “How you were expecting something special?” I asked puzzled. First I thought she may have seen the file, but then I thought I didn’t write anything in file. I just spoke out my heart just holding that file. I was wondering about what was the loop hole.

“You always go to office wearing formals. Today you didn’t and that too for an important speech! Isn’t that enough?” She said with a wink. I fell again in her love. Happy falling.

Damn! I am castled!! She is smarter!!

She saw me, I was looking sad for being not able to keep this as surprise, she took my hands in her hands and repeated our company’s slogan, “I still love you though”..
We both laughed our heart out.

Then we had Lunch.  A party for our company’s recent success in the last few minutes.. 😉

The colors of darkness- The way she found the light within

She was sitting in the darkness of her room, just to remind herself that her life was going through a dark phase. She was chained in the infinite walls of pessimism and colorless paints of negativity. She was in search of colors, she was in search of light. – Jackie Jain

In her life she felt that she has gone through a lot,
She didn’t understand how and why these many complex problems she got.

The negativity has entangled with each and every neuron in her mind,
And making her positivity and happiness go completely blind.

But this happens to every person just at different times,
But believe me when I say, that problem in all our lives, rhymes.

They all for a reason,
We all need is just a perfect vision.

Problems are a constant remainder that there is something in ourselves which we lack,
And in this dark phase, you will create and fill that missing puzzle to its place, back.

Thinking about the problem again and again, thus negativity inside our brain grows,
Looking for a solution instead, helps the senses to know about the action which you chose.

For a solution, you have to roar,
Within moments, solution will drive back to you in gear four.

The sudden whitening flick from her window, indicated her that outside it was raining,
But still her thoughts were occupied by her wounded dreams which inside were paining.

Many a times she has been thrown down to ground,
She was staring on the floor blindly in the darkness, then something she found.

Due to the light of the thunder, she saw a mirror resting at an angle on the floor,
Because of the angle she saw something in the mirror which knocked her heart’s door.

In the mirror she saw the thunder traveling at the speed of light.
And suddenly she began laughing and her neurons within started to fight.

The battle between neurons and negativity demons was won by Neurons.
From that day in her mind, Neurons and negative thoughts were separated by eons.

The path to heaven passes through hell,
Problems are just like that, to make us well.

what she thought when she saw the mirror reflecting the thunder in it?

She saw the mirror reflecting the thunder even though it was laying on the floor, though being thrown down to the ground. So with that thought she started smiling and positivity spread in her mind removing all the negativity away. Problems are necessary to find the light within, just like she found her light within. In the colors of darkness, she found the light within. Instead of running away from problems, she was ready to face them, to fight them.

“The world will throw you down to the ground, it is up to you to convert ground into a mirror, so that you can see yourself in the sky. In the skies of happiness and confidence.” – Jackie Jain.
