    It is really an interesting article presented in a nice way. I liked his closing note : Closing note: it’s important to express, that all of these qualities don’t matter if one factor is missing. That factor is a deep seated passion to want to be better.    To become a better writer you must want it (and a have little luck).

As you said, there are a few members who never bother to red the link article provided by the Thread poster. In this regard nothing can be done as the Administrator himself said through his Featured post, a member can press Like Button and read articles. However, I'm against this. If a Member actively participates in the discussion Forums and occasional clicks on likes are OK. But there are members, who are building whole of their Points only by Clicking on Likes and reading articles. For this, Administration has to do something. yeah only admin can do something in this regard     It is not something that only the admin can do. To stop such practices, each and every member must resolve to help with it and not click like for anything and everything. Putting entire responsibility on admin does not absolve others of their own responsibility. but what the members can do if the person who is misusing any features of this site for his own profit and after intimating also they don't stop     Very simple, they are given warnings a few times after which they get banned from the site.     And who will banned them Site allow to earn with clicking like so it not possible to took any action against to member who using enough this option to earn. Adm can set limit for every day likes. For article point awarded only to member who write comments on article. That's the kind of suggestion this site needs. The points should be allotted on a proper comment of a proper length.  When a post is liked, point should be given to both the members, similar way point is given for “Thank You”. Both are similar functions. I give "Thank You" only if I like the post.

    March 24 at 3:30 pm

    Before posting a comment I used to check it again to ensure that there is no spelling or grammar mistake and it conveys the right message what I have in my mind. However when I read the post later, sometimes I feel that something is missing, or it should have written in a different way, etc; but I do not edit the content once it is posted, except for some serious spelling mistakes.

    March 10 at 5:35 pm

    Boddunan is one of the legit sites I have seen and I find it very useful especially the discussions on a variety of issues. I am glad that it is my first platform for article writing. But I am not fully active here for last few months, because of some other commitments and time constraints, but I always try to login here daily and read posts in the discussion forum. I am quite happy to be here whenever I am free. Still I feel that if the Admin can introduce some healthy contests, etc., it will motivate the members.

    Kalabhavan Mani was a popular character actor in Malayalam films and also in Tamil, Telugu movies.  He was a talented mimicry artist and folk singer; and a favorite artist of the common man. May his soul rest in peace!

Although I do wonder if they did discover that the keys were not handed over, why didn't they simply break the box and retrieve them? Lack of oversight, probably! True Kalyani, in hind sight one can see how things could have been different if only.... I guess that is what is called destiny , fate or whatever else ! I personally can quote so many small incidents where I went against my intuition and faced the consequences, at times you simply cannot decide which is the right course of action especially when there are too many opinions thrust on you ! It is an interesting article. It is true that everything in this world has a specific time and it should happen at that time. It seems that even if the circumstances are different, a set of internal programs influence the circumstances and re-organize the random events to make them happen at their destined moments. We call it destiny or the Law of the Universe.

    February 26 at 12:25 pm

    It is sad that some fanatics are trying to create uneasiness among people in the name of language, identifying certain languages with some religions and nationality. I do not know Urdu but I know it is a beautiful language, similar to Hindi while speaking, but different in scripts and vocabulary while writing. I love every language alike. Language has no religion.

Mantras when uttered produce sacred sounds and every sound is responsible for a particular form. In creation, sound precedes form.  Mantras exist both in subtle state and in gross state, depending on the degree of vibration of its sound. Normally, we can hear only gross sounds. But the sages with spiritual practice could hear them or ‘see’ them in their subtle state (and hence sages are called ‘Seers’). In the super-conscious state the sages heard or ‘saw’ these subtle mantras and their meaning had been revealed to them.  When they returned to their conscious state, they remembered these mantras and taught to their disciples, insisting them the repetition of mantras so that they can also reach the super-conscious state in which the mantras were revealed. Shana sez: Yes exactly. I do meditation so I understand this perfectly. In fact I have had a Kundalini rising so I'm with it every day. Though I am not saintly for most of the time! But I want to dig even deeper. I've already written a book about my Kundalini experience. It's with the publisher, and it is a constantly evolving process. I have actually seen the light form of the Kundalini with my naked eyes, when I was wide awake. It was a most surreal and I was happy to discover a few reported cases on the web who had the rare sighting. Otherwise it is mostly felt, rather than seen. It is basically your storehouse of energy making you aware that this abundance lies within you. And it is infinite potential. Meditation is basically about reaching subtler states of perception to widen the human experience which is personal and can  be enjoyed through the mind and the sense. To have a more rounded experience of reality, your senses have to be finer, and refinement comes through processes like meditation. Then you can see what is actually going on, instead of blundering in constant survival mode. And wasting unnecessary energy without putting it to good purpose.  You wrote 'sacred sounds and every sound is responsible for a particular form.,' I think that calls for very deep exploration of what the possibility actually means. I am excited to know that you have had the experience of Kundalini rising and had its rare sighting. Yes, it is the ultimate goal of every human soul is to realize this infinite potential within us and only a person perfect in meditation can achieve this wonderful feat. I appreciate your sincere efforts and dedication to reach the pinnacle of perfection. I would like to read your amazing Kundalini experience. Once the book is published, kindly let me know. Regarding ‘every sound is responsible for a particular form’, I would like to add:   Every spoken word creates an image in our mind whether the object is physically present before us or not. There are two sounds in the words we speak. One is the potential sound (the subtle word) that exists in our mind before we utter the word; and the second is the uttered word. This potential sound within our mind is called the sphota or Shabda-Brahman or Nada-Brahman.  Creation is possible only if there is an initial movement or vibration. Behind the manifestation of the form of this universe, there should be an eternal and inexpressible sphota, the first cosmic vibration, by which the universe awoke from its cosmic sleep and the equilibrated energy is released (what the modern scientists interpret as Big-Bang expansion of the Singularity). As per Hindu Philosophy, this sphota is represented by the mantra Aum, which is the nearest possible sound-symbol with profoundest meaning that cannot be expressed by any other sound.

  • RAMAKRISHNAN. A replied to the topic Is anyone of you a caregiver? Or do you know someone who is?Has technology been of any use in this regard?.

    February 13 at 11:30 am

    I know one of my online friends from Kerala. Her mother in law has Parkinson’s and dementia. Father in Law has the problems of old age. Both of them need care every moment. She is a dedicated women and a sincere caregiver. With prayer in heart, she accumulates strength and patience and cares her in-laws sincerely. She admits that it is a very difficult job. Her problem is that her relatives are not helpful but always try to find fault on what she has been doing. Here, what she needs is physical help and support from her dear ones. Here technology has no relevance. And I am sure that in the remote villages of our country, there are many such caregivers dedicated their lives, serving their aged parents and grandparents, but unknown to the external world. Online monitoring of old people is a good concept which will definitely save them from some emergency situations. But, I think it is more feasible in cities rather than villages. But still, we cannot leave the old people alone at home without the protection of a physical caregiver, irrespective of whether he is attached or hired.

    February 6 at 6:14 pm

    Ramayana is a beautiful literature of the past. The character Rama was a god-incarnate; that means, God incarnated as a human being. As such, he had to follow the passions and traits of human, the form in which he was incarnated. So his story is a mixture of right and wrong, and good and bad. He was a king who gave top priority to the interests of his people, rather than his personal interests. We can always study the literature in detail, analyse the characters and discuss about its relevance in present society, irrespective of whether it was a real story or not. But to file a case in a court against the characters of an epic is a foolish act.

  • RAMAKRISHNAN. A answered the question What makes you good?.

    February 5 at 3:29 pm

    I am good, but not good alone. Everyone, and the whole world, is a mixture of good and bad qualities. Contradiction is the law of life. A situation of good alone or bad alone is non-existent.  My good qualities are:  I think good and do good;  I love every one; and  I am unselfish.  ….But why should I do good? Because I believe it is good to do good.

    February 3 at 10:06 am

    It is true that ancient India had a vast knowledge base about myriads of subjects we cannot even think about; but there is a difference. Modern internet, which is the infinite library of the universe, is accessible to every person in fraction of a second by the gentle touch of their fingertips. Whereas those ancient resources are not accessible to all, but it seems that they are just used as exhibits to boast the heritage of the nation to sky high. Knowledge is not to be hidden under the forgotten footprints of history, but should be revealed to the inquisitive minds of the country.
