The Monasticism from ‘Karma’

      India is the land of spirituality.. Lot of cults and saints has been here. From east to west there are religious cults everywhere. Some of the monks have  big names in World also. In global world, saadhus also being famous by internet. It is good to have their thoughts and guidance being followed by the people all over the world. There are saints with the background of religion but there are a lot other saints who are in the background of deeds or karma. Both are important.

Today, I want to write about one man who is living in my town. His name is chandrashinha. He is lover of cow and serving cows from the heart. Those cows who are not been able to give milk those left by their owners and chandrashinha serve those cows. Before some years ago he got few lakes rupees in the land deal. Then he decided to serve for the cows and not to marry. He often goes to one saint who is living near to our town and bring some food, vegetables and milk to him.  Now these days, when the lock down is on, he couldn’t go for a few days after lock down. He called to the monk and knew that there were no vegetables and milk left for him. Buses are closed, private vehicles have no permission to go anywhere. It’s almost 9 km from our town. The brother of chandrashinha is a police officer but he hadn’t tell him for special permission. During this time he decided to go there by walk with vegetables and milk to serve him. He went there by walk,delivered  everything needed and returned with utmost satisfaction like he has always.!!. Sometimes, we can’t decide that who is monk?. That guide waiting for the things or the shishya(follower) who is serving him in this crucial time? Thus, there is no difference between the monk and his follower! People like this are not big names where others serve people by their religious speeches.  They know their ‘kaarmik’ duty and serve with satisfaction. There are lot other people who are serving food and other needs with dedication. Salutations to all those Kaarmik Saints…

      Some people are monks with their Karma’s, where they don’t need any religion in the background, because there is a background of nature always with them. 

Thank You So much
