Kuroshio Sea – A cross over view !

Been a fan of aquariums, I came across this beautiful video in YouTube by user John Rawlinson.
The scene shows off the magnificent Kuroshio Sea exhibit at its best, just in a smaller acrylic plane which holds 1981290 Gallons of water!

The main tank called the “Kuroshio Sea” holds 7,500-cubic meters (1,981,290 gallons) of water and features the world’s second largest acrylic glass panel, measuring 8.2 meters by 22.5 meters with a thickness of 60 centimeters. Whale sharks and manta rays are kept amongst many other fish species in the main tank. The song is “Please Don’t Go,” by Barcelona.

Some excellent shots ;

And by the way the song playing in the video is “Please Don’t Go,” by Barcelona.

Dhamma – The path to know the truth within you.

Dhamma” means “The Truth”.

By involving in a regular practice of Buddha’s teachings we realize ourselves from suffering and problems we face and get out of it.

The first cause to all suffering is IGNORANCE: All the problems we experience during daily life originate in ignorance, and the method for eliminating ignorance is to practice Dhamma.
Practicing Dhamma is the supreme method for improving the quality of our human life. The quality of life depends not upon external development or material progress, but upon the inner development of peace and happiness.

In the past many Buddhists lived in poor and underdeveloped countries, but they were able to find pure, lasting (ananda) happiness by practicing what Buddha had taught.

If we integrate Buddha’s teachings into our daily life, we will be able to solve all our inner problems and attain a truly peaceful mind.
All our sins will be washed, and we start travelling the inner journey to realize ourselves and exploring ourselves. I can say inner travelling is taking the path towards the light of the self.
Everyone has got their inner light, but due to ignorance, this light is unreachable, and thus everyone gets involved in the rat race.

Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible. If we first establish peace within our minds by training in spiritual paths, outer peace will come naturally; but if we do not, world peace will never be achieved, no matter how many people campaign for it.

The picture of the Gauthama Buddha above is foreseen by one of the famous siddhas during his connection to higher realms. Its not a picture of another human, it’s the gauthama himself in the physical form of his being.

And remember the word Buddha is not a name of a person;
Buddha Means : Enlightened
Gauthama became Buddha (means he became enlightened)
And anyone enlightened is known as Buddha, even you and me!

Why don’t we see GOD?

Jab Mein Tha Tab Hari Nahin‚ Jab Hari Hai Mein Nahin
Sab Andhiyara Mit Gaya‚ Jab Deepak Dekhya Mahin


Definitions: Hari : har= Everything (GOD)

  • When the ego existed in me, Nothing existed I was blind to experience god. Now I am aware of god, and there is not even a single trace of ego in me.

    Everything became clear when I saw the light within me; I came out of the illusion, when I saw you “the source”.

Brief: Self realization is impossible, until a bit of ego exists. When you feel superior it’s your ego, and when you feel inferior even that’s your ego. Your ego reduces when you come to a state of observance level and understand that everyone is equal. When this understanding becomes clear you start realizing yourself or GOD, and at that state you have no trace of ego.

Remember, you are living in an illusion, there are thousands of unanswered question in your unconscious mind. You don’t know your purpose of coming to planet earth; you don’t know where you came from! As life began, you got involved in the rat race of money and leisure, without giving a thought about your purpose. The Ignorance, the ego will bond you within the darkness, which doesn’t allow you to reach the self. When you come out of your ego and start understanding and experiencing your life, the light within is perceived.

When you see the light within, the self (the source), all your confusions gets cleared, all your questions gets answered and you come out of the greatest illusion.

This is my interpretation on Kabir’s Doha
I don’t recommend writing this definition at your exams

Mom’s Food is always tasty! Ingredient LOVE

Nature takes care of everyone! And feeds them. Its left to you weather you allow nature to feed you or not!

In this post, I’ll discuss the reason of satisfaction when you have mom’s food or home food!

Why you get satisfaction when you have mom’s food?

When a mother prepares the food, during the whole process of cooking or preparing, her mind thinks of YOU, and only you
she thinks of the one who will munch the food and enjoy its taste.
She thinks and imagines your hunger being diluted away.
She wishes that all your tensions and worries fly away.
She adds the ingredients of LOVE knowingly or unknowingly.

As she thinks and wishes, she puts all the blessings, well-wishes, warmth in the food she’s preparing,
as a result, you enjoy the food cooked by your mom!

What so special with the food?

On the process of preparing food, the food is blessed with the eternal love what your mom has for you.

The main difference between the food outside (canteen or restaurants) and the house food is the word “LOVE”, the only ingredient that is missing!

A mother prepares the food with lots of love and care, but a person in a restaurant cooks the food with only one intension, that “let the food be tasty for the customer”.

The Ingredient LOVE also applies when your close friend or relative has brought or prepared food for you with lots of love and hope.

The reaction!

As the food goes in to your stomach, it bounds with a radiant energy of love and care, which helps in healing the pain and hunger to its maximum.

Sometimes, when you are out for a dinner to the best restaurant on the street, and you order the best dish at your table, but at the end the end you feel your tummy filled, but THAT satisfaction or something you feel is missing and you walk out of ignorance!
Sometimes, even though you have very little food cooked by your mom, you feel the heavy hunger missing, and at the same when you have food outside, even if your tummy is filled, you feel something is missing!

So when you have an opportunity to have the food cooked by your mom, wife or close friend don’t miss it….. You’re missing the most important ingredient of LIFE! And don’t forget to thank the one!

Essential Fragrances

Deep Love exists when the aromas of rose murmurs around. Anger is diluted, when the sensitive fragrance of jasmine whispers around. The fragrance around plays a great role in altering the state of one’s mind.

  • Want to Wear Perfume! – Fragrant clothes, towels, sheets etc…

    To have a sweet-smelling clothes, towels etc… Apply a few drops of essential oil into a small piece of cloth or cotton ball, and drop it in the washing machine while drying, or add 5 drops of essential oil to ¼ cup fabric softener and place it in the centre cup of the washing machine. As the vapors of the oil rise up, it distributes the fragrance through out your clothes giving a fresh wash!

  • A kiss from butterflies!

    Use a blend of lavender, chamomile or geranium of 6-8 drops in your bathing water or tub while bath.

  • How about guests touching their noses down to carpet!

    Add 10 drops of essential oil to a box of baking soda mix it and let it soak for a day and than sprinkle over the carpets. Let it set for an hour or more and than vacuum it up. This process allows the fragrance to sink in the bushes of the carpet, allowing it to release the fragrance when stepped.

  • Aromatic Rooms!

    A few drops in a radiator or a light bulb. When in use the heat and the air flow will spread the room with a natural aroma like in gardens.

  • Does your fridge stink?

    Clean your fridge, freezer or oven with one drop of lemon or orange essential oil added with the rinse water. The desire of eating more will disappear and you’ll be back in your senses!

  • Utensils are not made to stink!

    Clove oil can be added in a quantity of few drops to a shimmering pan, to dispel the household cooking odors.

  • How about warm fragrance from your vacuum cleaner?

    Just place a cotton ball in your vacuum cleaner bag with a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Lime or pines are recommended to have a nice effect.

  • Rosemary helps to promote the alertness and stimulates the memory. Inhale occasionally if you have a habit of feeling dizzy. Recommended during long car trips.
  • For Dreamy and restful Sleeps, Place 1 – 2 drops of enhancing oils of lavender or Neroli on your pillow.
  • Smelly Shoes! Drop a few drops of geranium directly into the shoes and say bye to the pungent smell.
