The Wealth of Health…

The world has stopped now. Everything has stopped and we are being watchful to this situation and observe by the time. There is no need to control traffic of air, road and rail. Work from home is a very good thing to rotate our life in a normal mode. How the world is facing challenges to fight against this current situation. The stupid excitement by eating insects caused to a worst situation now. It is not caused by nature or an examination taken by nature. The eating abnormality of a human being responsible for this disaster. World is facing this when we are missing a few emotions by the leaders, Business tycoons, artists, scientists, Ministers, politicians and others. We are missing those arrogant -smile on their faces. Only questions and questions are there on faces whether they are leaders of superpowers or top developed nations. The Pharmaceutical Scientists are working hard to discover vaccines.  This is not like an actual war situation because where we find attackers and defenders.This war is different where we only have to survive. The crashed economy has no idea how to rebuild and grow after coming out of this condition. Maybe after this, the world will need to change the perspectives of the economy. The speed of top economies has shut down suddenly. The only way to survive and return to our routine is awareness. The honourable prime minister of India requested to be aware to fight against this illness. A huge respect for doctors, nurses and other medical staff for being on duty constantly for the people. For applauding them we should come out to our balcony or from the window and by ringing the bell or playing plates like cymbal. 

Painting by me…

In Sanatan Sanskriti, ringing a temple bell has scientific reasons.Mostly in India, every small village or a society of cities has temples and we hear the sound of Aaarti(Pray) by playing bell or metal plates. I heard somewhere that the sound from Aaarti has the ability to destroy negativity besides us. Even the Vaidik sanskriti of Havan or incense in homes have reasons to destroy microbes there. So it is our responsibility to do something in this critical time. I plead to you everyone to contribute and get out of this current situation. Hope we all find a way to start our routine in a smooth way soon. Nature has the only capabilities to save us from this pestilence that is born by human disorder. 

Our healthy body is the profit of tomorrow that cannot be compared to estimated profit of business.   

Be safe and be at home for few weeks.

Nature for education and Nature of education…

In every aspect of life, we are learning something new. We educate us in a different role. Sometimes of life, of any subject, art, driving, in a career etc. We can be well educated but not anyone can be fully educated even by the end of life. In every zone there is a different system to study and learn. The most valuable study is from the innocent age when we go to school. Observation is the main key to learn something. Our ancestors observed first and then applied to their routine. By that they started to find solutions to problems. They innovated some invaluable things without any school. There was only one teacher and it was “Nature” . 

Painting by Navin R Soni

From the ages in Hindu sanskriti there has been a system of study from gurukul. ‘Sandipani’ ashram is the best example of it. In those times, students used to come from their home for a few terms and learned by staying there at ashram. They learnt by sitting under the tree and connecting with  soil. It’s amazing where the results were only seen in the eyes of gurus by their marking and not marks. Maybe there was no mathematics like today. They taught about shooting, languages, astronomy, yantras, mantras, tantra, different mathematics, science etc. The conversation of learning and teaching was in the proximity of nature. That’s why there was no burden of getting highest marks and being at top or bottom.Now, education has been changed totally. Air condition buildings, semesters, materials, books, exams, academies etc. Though the education system has a lot of issues, students should utilise their smooth efforts to study. Getting knowledge from study is more important than getting marks. Many students fears a lot during exams and takes stupid step of suicide !? How!? Exams are more important than life?. Even life is not an exam which can give you a certificate. It’s only filled with lessons. We can have great examples where one girl becomes an IAS topper or CA topper who is living in slums! A great respect for those who are studying hard to achieve something in life. Some have no smartphones, no ac classrooms, without study rooms achieved a lot from their learning. Those who have failed in exams and felt like losing a world should take inspiration from them. 

  Students in those times when an education took in gurukul by the imminent nature. There was no disappointment in the process of learning. The spoken words by gurus were first dropped on the leaves of the trees and then to the ears of students. So here it is much different from there. Hope this difference may be reduced by the coming tutors or students to achieve new heights of education. 

Education is not the slave of facilities, it’s a learning process by interchange between nature and human nature for a better tomorrow.

Thank You so much.

Marriage is a Friendship…

Nowadays, Marriages celebrate like festivals. Lighting, Music, Decorations, food items, dresses, ornaments, Selfies, heavy sets, special entry for couple etc. Those few days of show offs have not  much more than calmness, love, understanding, responsibilities to each other. Heavy dresses, original flower decorations for some lakhs, high quality sets, expensive catering, music for extra emotions which is everything a talk of the society for a few days. Nothing will work more than love and candour to live together. 

Painting By Navin R Soni, Bhuj-India

     

From month ‘Kartak’ to ‘faagan’ and ‘vaishakh’ to ‘jeth’ is the season of marriages in India as Hindu calendar. ‘Muhurta’ (the right time for Rituals) is very important for marriage ceremonies. How could the way a trend of marriages started?! Without ‘Muhrata’, transactions, decorations, food dishes.?! By Indian Mythology, evening is a good time to be married when there is twilight created on the horizons. 

In Childhood, I always got bored of attending marriage functions and told my father about that. He had only one question for me. What will you do when you get marry.?! My answer is still the same.I got bored too during solemnization of my marriage that needs to be done two times. Where first for the actual ceremony and second time for photographers.! Those few days of Regalisam has nothing more than entertainment. Nothing will come together and every couple needs to understand their life on the basis of time. What can be a real definition of marriage? I think its’ a true friendship. If a couple can’t’ be true friends then life has a lot of disappointments. In old times women had nothing to do for their life. Women had no rights and men had a misunderstanding of having authority over them? Even the word ‘marriage’ is becoming a very less important and getting divorce is a very common thing for a few silly reasons! Tuning between each other is always necessary but now, the upcoming generation doesn’t’ have much interest in going for tuning and getting married to each other!? Many of them  are not sure about whether to marry or not. The word freedom has taken it the wrong way and they use it in their own way. Believing in marriage is a big question for coming generations.Stability has a great role to maintain their own life. Life is a lesson and those different faces of it should be learnt by the time. No one has been born as self-educated.

Marriage is like two good tuned instruments that can  produce sweet music. 

Thank You So Much.

“Shiva”.. the Soul of the “Universe”

One day we were talking about the existence of “Shiva”. I think Shiva is the first soul, a first Light, a first drop and a main tone that is moving in the universe. Shiva is an element that can be moulded into any element. It can be wind, sky, water, fire or soil. Shiva is unborn. He doesn’t need to be born. Because one element which is an ultimate soul has no form. He can transfer into form himself to show us the existence.  Which would be the first ‘Manirshi’ had imagined or experienced the form of Shiva.? How the way the drawing had been drawn by an artist.?! That would be an ultimate feeling. In India, many places are known as the land of Shiva. Ujjain, Himalayas and Girnar are those lands known to him. Even Ujjain is called a nucleus of the world by the Monks! 

  

Painting by me of talmala.

When we go to some natural place and we find great vibrations, a presence of Shiva is there in soil. By going somewhere in nature if we find an ultimate breathing, it is a presence of Shiva in the air. In Jungles where we find a wonderful sound of waterfalls, is a Shiva. He is also in the sky with dark  clouds of monsoon. He is present in northern lights or in the volcanoes. The Shiva element is moving continuously in five elements. The CERN( European Organisation of Nuclear Research) had found something like the form of the ‘Nataraj’ during nuclear research. https://www.fritjofcapra.net/shivas-cosmic-dance-at-cern/

The form of Nataraj, the Shiva is a lord of destruction and creation. ‘Tandava’ is like a form of destruction. The destruction by the water or wind, there is Shiva there in tandava form. It is felt  in the tremor of an earthquake and in falling lightning. From ages, he is moving in between us and has been worshipped by Human beings. I am surprised with today’s worship with processions and posters on advertising boards.!? 

Shiva is the steady and ultimate flow, he doesn’t need to be prompted by human resources.

Thank you so much.

The Nature of Food-Culture….

      Wild life is very close to nature. This cycle of nature has everything that controls the balance for life. Normally earth is rotating on its own ground . The channel of human, wild life, animals is continuously running. Humans are called human because they have a sense of innovation and search for a better life for every cuss. For the ages have gone human has a theory of having food from nature. Those animals living in nature have a better understanding of this balance. I think the first food for our ancestors or animals would be grass. It was naturally grown and eaten by humans and animals.  The combination of thirsty creatures and carnivores in nature provides an enough balance. A big question is there that humans were carnivorous? By seeing those animals having carnivorous nature humans tried to do like them?! The less sense about having perfect food at that time. Then time went by and humans knew about agriculture. By farming humans got grain, vegetables and fruits. 

Painting by Navin R Soni

    There are two types of mind in people. One is natural and the other is against nature. I think man was never grown for being a non vegetarian. Agriculture was invented by man and that was the main invention by human beings on earth. It was by nature or nature friendly. When Heron is having a fish for food it is natural, but when a man eats a live fish,it’s unnatural. It looks precious when we see nature and wildlife on television or on the spot. At one side those photographers who spend hours and hours for one click of beautiful birds and the other side who are eating those beautiful alive birds like evils. How distortion is there in that.? Any cuss who is doing an unnatural thing is not acceptable for Nature. Even the fact is the non vegetarians are eating dead bodies whether they accept it or not. Now a big question about health is coming on a way for humans. One country is suffering now a days from their eating etiquette and maybe  other countries would suffer from it. Earth is giving something to every continent or nation. Every nation has an opportunity for agriculture and can have good food. Many people are changing their eating etiquette from Non-Vegetarian to Vegan and we appreciate them. In India some monks who are living in jungles of Girnar(Gir), Himalayas or in the other forest area have abilities of getting energy and enough nutrition from the leaves.?!! So, No one can have answer that some countries has less sources for agriculture and they are non-vegetarian by nature. The time will tell the stories of food culture of a particular country when they will need to change.

The ecosystem depends on Nature so there is no place for human deterioration.   

Thank you so much

The clicks without cropped …

The light is a source of our vision. Naturally we see the light in yellowish or reddish tones but it has been of seven colours. By capturing this light by our eyes we can see and feel those emotions. Emotions of nature and human nature. Eyes are the main sense that capture perfect colours from nature and we can feel that colourful world.

 

Painting by me…

In today’s world, people have those assembled eyes on smartphones. I often goes to feel those beautiful colours in Nature. I see people gathered for enjoy and have some good time  there. Once, I went on a short trip near my town. A group was there to a picnic spot. Everyone got busy with their smartphones and cameras to capture images. Those 5 by 3 inches machines captured videos and images very smartly. After the end of the day, we get back to our bus and everyone was busy to see their phone clicks. There were more selfies than nature . I found few guys were discussing about that place and went their without assembled smart eyes. They found a beautiful place near to that spot and enjoyed by capturing with  real eyes. Everybody was wondering that why they hadn’t notice anything like that?. Do they really enjoyed or they went there to capture only photographs?!?. Some people never enjoy by being there and they get excited about taking photos and sharing later. Many of them even taking photos for their social media sites !?. They never feel where they are. Though taking photos is always precious for memories and we should have few clicks, but capturing images by our eyes are always has great remarks emotionally. An assembled eyes of smartphones has never those emotions that we get from our own eyes. Someone who visit places like this should spend one day without clicks. I am sure they will find a great pleasing moments without capturing. 

Moments and places should never captured in frames, it has a lot of uncropped images that can change our lives. 

Those dampness between eyelashes has always better emotions than assembled clicks. 

Thank you so much…

‘VastuShastra(Iconography) is the Home of Nature.

When Vastu was born.  ? The earth is covered with directions and it is moving from west to east every day. Directions are steady for distracted world and for steady world, directions can move(By Babubhai Ranpura, my Guru). Vision is very important when moving in the right direction for anyone.  In every sector direction is need full. How vastu shastra born before ages..?. Humans had been living by the use of five elements. At first they used naturally and now with some machines also. These five elements are sky, air, fire, water and earth.  These five elements have been moving from their directions to gave breath, lights, peace(Water), nutrition(Earth) and thoughts(Sky). The home of humans were caves and elements naturally collide with those rocks to maintain the life of humans in the right direction. 

Painting by me…

   When there would be the first  human made structure of 90 degrees built to live?. Because Nature has never created any 90 degree angles.  So the five elements were moving smoothly into the caves or homes before that and when the angles created by human made structures then something unnatural move found by those five elements. I think by that, the requirements of Vastu shastra realised. How that air would collide that first 90 degree angle?. How humid, sunlight, space of thoughts and greenery found something unusual to move from there?.  Vastu is nothing more than a source of the five elements in any structure. If anyone is believed to make a structure like it then it’s going to be good for lives.

    Everyone has a dream to have a beautiful home and peaceful life in that home. Many of them serious to make a good home plan which is suitable to Vastu shastra. But Can we ever have a thought of doing suitable or good for Vastu or directions. ! If directions can work for us then why not we ?! Human beings searching  everything for the betterment of them but Humans should look for the betterment of nature or directions. Then it would be great for the Humans.

   The corners in home are very important in the sense of Vastu Shastra and of our mind. We should give enough space to move those five elements and have a peaceful life.

Thank You So Much.. Everyone. I completed  50 blogs today. Thanks for the appreciation and love.

Realism of Necessities…

   We all are slaves of necessities.. one child needs a mom. A child never ask or seeking to be in big house more than in the lap of mother. That is the first requirement of child. A child has no interest to sit in expensive cars, but they always excited about toy cars. If we are not aware of our needs, its’ endless. In spite of knowing that, someone run for more expensive necessities. Life has never require more than basic needs, but this materialistic world created a tumour in minds.

Painting by me.

 

  Simple living and high thinking is always work for everyone. Living a life naturally is truly blessings.Others can’t judge one’s living standards by having branded things or not ! Many of my friends has madness of buying expensive branded things. People buy expensive things in debt just to have attention towards them! The burden of such an outward life affects their personal life too.They live in debt and die in debt. Their families also have to face bad consequences. Even youngsters are doing like that?  Many families are afraid of losing relations with their relatives due to living standard. I think there is no need of such relations those are maintained by wealth and positions.           

      Someone said that our next generation should know that walking is not a poor thing and driving in expensive car is not a great thing.

      Rich relationships are not developed by expensive living. If that happens then its’ of selfishness.    
Thank you so much.

The concern towards meditations…

What is meditation??. Is meditation like a process to achieve peace?. Can we achieve peace by doing few meditation seasons!?.many groups are doing meditation seasons to take breaks from work. Meditation is a one type of concern to know about yourself, self-conversation and have a peaceful mind. It has been proven that talking to yourself is much better than each other. I know one organisation where people goes to talk with themselves by seasons of meditations. They live there for few days tactically. They don’t allows to talk with anyone during those days. Many of those people feels great and relieves stress by few days seasons. Some of my friends suggested me to go there for an experience but I would find more concentrations in my artwork than any seasons. I feel that any art is a best meditation for our mental health. Even our work can be a good meditation when being done by full concentration.  I am not criticising people who are doing meditation seasons like these, even if no one has the rights to do it. but what I feel that art is a form of meditation more than performance.

Painting by Navin R Soni, Bhuj (India)

Recently, I want to share a true incident when one doctor went to meditation seasons. It is few miles away from my town. A doctor is a heart patient and had gone many times for meditation. When he was there during the season, he found himself with a brain stroke. He immediately knew that what happened to him and broke his silence. He informed other people but nobody reacted immediately because of silent meditation seasons and some more time had passed!!. Then someone from the staff called an ambulance and taken to the hospital. He is still hospitalised from three months.He is still in a coma and hoping for a quick recovery. 

I have a question that how the way we can estimate these meditation seasons. !!? Is it fine when one is suffering from serious injury and the others are stuck with their rules for a meditation. ?? How stupidity there.. ? I think extremeness is not good of anything. Whether its’ of meditation, knowledge, devotion, recourse or of anything. There can be nothing greater than instinct, love and innocence.

Meditation is the only thing to live without let down to anyone. 

Thank you so much.

Dissolve the Ego by Nature.

It is said that ‘I’ is always capital.But i think ‘N’ is always capital and that is of Nature. There is no other option of nature for human beings. Nature is unique and It’s greater than anyone. Every  person has different human Nature and that reflects on his life. Nature has complete answers to our doubts, questions, unacceptable etc. Whenever the roads are closed of human strength , Nature start a path for them. For the self-examination, nature is an ultimate place. Those five elements always giving us everything that we need.Those five elements are common in nature and human nature.When they synchronised with each-other, we can have a continuous conversation with Nature. But Ego and pride is a big burden to our life. That overweight life has so much pain than a simple living. 

Painting by Navin R Soni, Bhuj-Gujarat.

 

Recently, after longtime i have gone to mountain ‘Girnar’. Every time by going there i feel close conversation with nature. When ego is flowing in our blood we even can’t accept Nature and Nature’s creations.  People like that should try self-examination by going into Nature. Live there with less facilities for some days and we realise our existence. By climbing those almost ten thousand upstairs in ‘Girnar’ we can realise our capacity and how helpless we are!!  Nature is convinced when fatigue is felt in the body. wherever we find space, we sit and take a rest. There is no need to have any kind of good furnishings ? If we understand then the place of taking rest becomes pilgrimage.Whenever the world of pride, ego or superstition is engulfed in life, one must examine oneself in nature. Many saints, monks do penance and examine their self by five elements of nature. They start to look continuously at the sun from rising to sunset.That travel by walking on earth creates some connection and by reaching that pilgrimage.For the worldly people, hiking is also a definition of self-mortification. It is not necessary to assimilate. Even youngsters going for trekking and adventure is a part of it and we would know our small positions or status in the lap of nature. May we walk barefoot on roads in summer?, climb those rocks without any support or can we stand in front of heavy waves.? 

Nature is the best place for self-realisation to terminate ego and pride.

Thank you so much. Have a great new year ahead to everyone.
