Celebrating the real Dusshera / VijayaDashamii


‘Celebrating Dusshera is celebrating the victory of GOOD over evil devil!’
‘So when would we control and kill those invisible multifaceted / multi-headed RAAVANA(s) inside of us?
And the AVATAAR is also inside us, let’s make that AVATAAR expressed and in work!
When will we have the real VIJAYA-DASHAMII – victory of GOOD over Evil Devil?’

VIJAYADASHAMII / DUSSHERA

So by this time, all the RAAM-LIILAA and RAABANA-PODI would have been big time over!

I recall, with the sound of pathakas, crackers, rockets, the big tall RAAVANA would be arrow-targeted perfectly purportedly from RAAM‘s bow – it was all fun, good-will gesture, the festivity!

Celebrating Dusshera is celebrating the victory of GOOD over evil devil!

But I feel how lucky even Lord RAAM and others were! The so-called devil Braahmana-Raakshas RAAVANA was ten-headed! So if one went off, the other could be targeted and so on until the last / main one was done with, and RAAVANA was killed! At least those heads were getting visible one by one or so!

But the (human) devils today have so many invisible, disguising and deceiving faces! They come in form of close relations, friends, or any body in the society or crowd! And enjoy their act of DEVILRY!

But the KALYUG (modern-age) devils (the majority humans) must realize even the so-called Raakshas / devil RAAVANA was doing some good to / for his kindgdom Lanka, his place, his people! It was Swarna Lanka! And at least he also had some principles, followed tapasyaa to appease the Gods and get Vardaan! He was wise, learned; even he believed in the KARMA, but couldn’t help his own nature! Every devil had its end though, so was his. And the downfall is written through a misdeed. The misdeed and contention of RAAVANA was with respect to devii SITAA! And there was Lord RAAM to return the KARMA and mark the DESTINY!

With so many far dangerous than RAAVANAs these days, how many so called AVATAARs we would need and depend on! These modern-days RAAVANAs don’t even spare their own places / land / people! This modern-RAAVANA‘s desires don’t end with a naarii (woman) or prosperity, wealth! It wants any thing and everything! The wealth is misunderstood and has a new name – MONEY though! Lust and desires have new forms apart from women, rather to say more than any married women! Wine / Alcohol is not the only Vilaasa (aristocracy); it’s more than that – drugs, and/or any addiction! It’s just never-ending! Knowledge and wisdom are scarce!

The reality is the devil is within us! Some control it (SANYAM / self-control) and many enjoy relishing and expressing it and making it in work! As it goes, it’s their very nature!

“So when would we control and kill those invisible multifaceted / multi-headed RAAVANA(s) inside of us?

And the AVATAAR is also inside us, let’s make that AVATAAR expressed and in work!”

When will we have the real VIJAYA-DASHAMIIvictory of GOOD over Evil Devil?

A Food for Thought for each of us!

Success!


If Success is like the Sky:
everybody wants to reach for it and touch it, but never is able to; because it’s all the feeling, one can only feel it, never touch it, because it is all here devoid of any form, shape; it is not materialistic!
If one thinks one is flying in it, one realizes where does it start and end then? If it’s like flying, one must remember one has to take off from one’s base (e.g., the earth) and must remember one has to return or land back on to the base/ground level to fly again; so one has to re-energize/refuel/refresh/restart!
Also, one can be then knocked down off the flying, aka ‘Success‘!
There is no ‘ever‘ concept in Success then!?
So now one comes to realize Success doesn’t have a perfect analogy! It is incomparable as it seems!

If Success is the key to Happiness:
what’s Happiness then? Is it a door/gate or room or house or the world or whatever?
If it’s a door/gate, then it can be breached, can be collapsed and can be broken down!
Then there would be privileged pass, time-bound pass, membership pass!
Then there must be at least a door-keeper/gate-keeper/watchman/security/guard. So one can’t just enter like that, one has to fight for it or cheat that to have that entry. But if that was possible, then everybody would do it some or the other way; but the truth is that it’s not.
Also, with this door/gate-key context, what’s the lock then?
Also, if there is the entry, there must be an exit (forced)!
So it’s not ‘ever‘! So Success is also not forever!
And if Success is an enclosed entity, would one want to live confined forever?

If Success is the state of Happiness:
what’s Happiness then? Isn’t it the state of feeling Happy ( which is again beyond any exact definition)? So what’s feeling or being Happy then? Isn’t it like feeling good, content, nothing to want, nothing to need, nothing to desire, nothing to search for, nothing to ask for, nothing to beg for, nothing to earn, nothing to yearn, nothing new! Then it’s just the way one feels! It’s just one’s state of mind. So it’s all fluctuating. And all this is self-realized, and also self-controllable!
So again, it’s not ‘ever‘! So Success is also not forever!

So Success is tentatively easy to visualize, but not so easy to realize!
Success can’t be exactly defined!
It exists but without any practical existence!
