Arai gamdam visuiya
ayamka viviha fusamti te
vivadai viddhamsai te sarirayam
samayam goyama ma payamayae.
O Gautam! have no remission because bile ailment, a pustule and cholera are fast fatal diseases and even the touch of them makes the body powerless and it begins to wither.



From Acharya Mahashraman


Roj Ki Ek Salaah
Learn to live in present. Flowing redundantly with the memory of past and flying superfluously

under the unlimited sky of future, the present mutely goes away.

The Anekanta of meditational practice,
Circumstances are not everything. To put all the blame on it is not fair.Circumstances can be changed and they will change, but what hapens to the emotional syatem within? How can that be changed?

Bhagwan Mahavir was asked,"Noble Teacher,!Some people say one cannot meditate in a village.It can be done only in the forest, in the lonliness. Is the place of meditational practice binding?"
Mahavir said,"Child, Meditational Practice can be done anywhere in the village as well as the forest. And Yet it cannot be done anywhere either in the village or in the forest."This is the anekanta perspective of the meditation.
Excerpts from "ANEKANTA, THE THIRD EYE" By Acharya Mahaprajna
