There once lived a great mathematician in a village outside Ujjain. He was often called by the local king to advice on matters related to the
economy. His reputation had spread as far as Taxila in the North and Kanchi in the South. So it hurt him very much when the village headman told him, "You may be a great mathematician who advises the king on economic matters but your son does not know the value of gold or silver."

The mathematician called his son and asked, "What is more valuable - gold or silver?" "Gold," said the son. "That is correct. Why is it then that the village headman makes fun of you, claims you do not know the value of gold or silver? He teases me every day. He mocks me before other village elders as a father who neglects his son. This hurts me. I feel everyone in the village is laughing behind my back because you do not know what is more valuable, gold or silver. Explain this to me, son."

So the son of the mathematician told his father the reason why the village headman carried this impression. "Every day on my way to school, the village headman calls me to his house. There, in front of all village elders, he holds out a silver coin in one hand and a gold coin in other. He asks me to pick up the more valuable coin. I pick the silver coin. He laughs, the elders jeer, everyone makes fun of me. And then I go to school. This happens every day. That is why they tell you I do not know the value of gold or silver."

The father was confused. His son knew the value of gold and silver, and yet when asked to choose between a gold coin and silver coin always picked the silver coin. "Why don't you pick up the gold coin?" he asked. In response, the son took the father to his room and showed him a box. In the box were at least a hundred silver coins. Turning to his father, the mathematician's son said, "The day I pick up the gold coin the game will stop. They will stop having fun and I will stop making money."

Sometimes in life, we have to play the fool because our seniors and our peers, and sometimes even our juniors like it. That does not mean we lose in the game of life. It just means allowing others to win in one arena of the game, while we win in the other arena of the game. We have to choose which arena matters to us and which arenas do not.

Jai Guru dev

Most of out there may wonder what it means those who have a spiritual guru(Indian) would have heard this often.. If you wonder what it is or if you think its praising your guru or victory of your master.. Its time to think again.. An enlightened Satguru never needs your praise..

Jai means Victory
Guru means The great
Deva means the Divine who is fun-loving, playful, light and dignified

So "Jai Guru Dev" means victory of the greatness in you, victory of your mind/higher consiousness which is both playful and dignified**

Jai Guru Dev..

Swami Vivekananda

When Swami Vivekananda went to USA, a lady asked him to marry her. When Swami asked the lady about what made her ask him such question. The lady replied that she was fascinated by his intellect. She wanted a child of such an intellect. So she asked Swami, whether he could marry her and give a child like him.

He said to that lady, that since she was attracted only by his intellect, there is no problem.

"My dear lady, I understand your desire. Marrying and bringing a child in to this world and understanding whether it is intelligent or not takes very long time. More over it is not guaranteed. Instead, to fulfil your desire immediately, I can suggest a guaranteed way. Take me as your child. You are my mother. Now your desire of having a child of my intellect is fulfilled."

The lady was speechless.

Only great souls like Swami Vivekananda can conceive such a spontaneous sensible response without getting upset or emotional!!

PS:- I got his as forwarded e-mail.

A Mystery

Do you like to read a good murder mystery? Not
even "Law & Order" would attempt to capture this mess. This is an
unbelievable twist of fate !!!!

it's a true story

At the 1994 annual awards dinner given for
Forensic Science, AAFS President Dr Don Harper Mills astounded his
audience with the legal complications of a bizarre death.
Thus the
story: --------

On March 23, 1994...... The medical examiner
viewed the body of Ronald Opus, and concluded that he died from a
shotgun wound to the head.

Mr. Opus had jumped from the top of a ten story
building intending to commit suicide. He left a note to the effect
indicating his despondency.

As he fell past the 9th floor, his
life was interrupted by a shotgun blast passing through a window, which
killed him instantly.

Neither the shooter nor the deceased was aware that a safety
net had been installed just below the 8th floor level to protect some
building workers and that Ronald Opus would not have been able to
complete his suicide the way he had planned.

'Ordinarily,' Dr Mills continued, 'Someone who sets out to
commit suicide and ultimately succeeds, even though the mechanism might
not be what he intended, is still defined as committing suicide.' That
Mr. Opus was shot on the way to certain death, but probably would not
have been successful because of the safety net, caused the medical
examiner to feel that he had a "homicide" on his hands.

The room on the 9th floor, where the shotgun blast emanated,
was occupied by an elderly man and his wife. They were arguing
vigorously, and he was threatening her with a shotgun! The man was so
upset that when he pulled the trigger, he completely missed his wife,
and the pellets went through the window, striking Mr Opus.

When one intends to kill subject 'A' but kills subject 'B' in the
attempt, one is guilty of the murder of subject 'B.'

When confronted with the murder charge, the old man and his
wife were both adamant, and both said that they thought the shotgun was
not loaded.

The old man said it was a long standing habit to threaten his wife
with the unloaded shotgun. He had no intention to murder her. Therefore
the killing of Mr. Opus appeared to be an accident; that is, assuming
the gun had been accidentally loaded.

The continuing investigation turned up a witness who saw the old
couple's son loading the shotgun about six weeks prior to the fatal

It also transpired that the old lady had cut off her son's financial support and the son, knowing the
propensity of his father to use the shotgun threateningly, loaded the gun with the
expectation that his father would shoot his mother.

Since the loader of the gun was aware of this, he was guilty of
the murder even though he didn't actually pull the trigger. The case
now becomes one of murder on the part of the son for the death of Ronald

Now comes the exquisite twist:
Further investigation revealed
that the son was, in fact, Ronald Opus. He had become increasingly
despondent over the failure of his attempt to engineer his mother's
murder. This led him to jump off the ten-story building on March 23rd,
only to be killed by a shotgun blast passing through the 9th story

The son,
Ronald Opus, had actually murdered himself. So the medical examiner
closed the case as a suicide.

Why do we shout in Anger!!

A saint asked his disciples, 'Why do we shout in anger? Why do people
shout at each other when they are upset?

Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, 'Because we lose our
calm,we shout for that.'

'But, why to shout when the other person is just next to you?' asked the
saint. 'Isn't it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice? Why
doyou shout at a person when you're angry?'

Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the saint.

Finally he explained, 'When two people are angry at each other, their
hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to
hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout
tohear each other through that great distance.'

Then the saint asked, 'What happens when two people fall in love? They
don't shout at each other but talk softly, why? Because their hearts are very
close. The distance between them is very small...'

The saint continued, 'When they love each other even more, what happens?
They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other
intheir love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at eachother
and that's all. That is how close two people are when they love each

MORAL: When you argue do not let your hearts get distant, do not say
words that distance each other more, else there will come a day when the
distance is so great that you will not find the path to return

PS:- Got this as a email and it touched me as I have had lost a few wonderful people because of ma anger.We often take pride of being anger and showing tantrums but its very easy to show your attitude ego and anger, and its very tough get a control over them and grow above it. Be skillful in handling relations, you can learn from mistakes so never worry about past. Love every one. Last but not least "Show your anger but don't get angry.. Sri Sri"

Flute is one of the instruments which can touch the soul of all living beings in earth.I started learning it few days back as it was my childhood passion now aim in life is to play the flute and make the person whoever listen it happy. The seed for this was dropped inside ma heart by a tuition master in my early teens however I started following the path when Im 26 and Im happy to start at this stage because I was able to start learning it from Vrindhavan Gurukul run by Pandit Shri Hariprasad Chaurasia, now my master Sameer Rao is helping to make ma dreams fruitful.

I like flute for the reason that it has to be controlled by breath which helps to calm the mind and I believe flute can make a conversation between soul to soul. Sri Sri Ravishankarji has once said in his knowledge sheet that a person who feel low/sad should remain silent attend satsang and also to listen to flute music to regain the peace of mind. I wonder if one who listens can get a peace of mind then one who plays can go beyond that and the flautist/any musician is thus doing a great service to the World.

Bansuri flute has six finger holes and one embouchure hole, and is used predominantly in the Hindustani music of Northern India. The Venu or Pullanguzhal, has eight finger holes, and is played predominantly in the Carnatic music of Southern India. Flute is one of the three original forms of rendering Indian Classical music according to ancient scriptures - Vaani (Vocal), Veena (String) and Venu (Flute). Flute is loved by most of the Indians as it was Lord Krishna’s instrument to. The western flute is different from the Indian flute in many ways and also it doesn’t create the smooth soothing sounds as such India flutes can.

Music is God’s gift to Us we have to respect it by exploring it, learn it, encourage it and spread it and spread smile around the world which move towards violence and trauma.

I am the Father of hundreds

A little boy got on the bus, sat next to a man reading a book, and noticed he had his collar on backwards.
The little boy asked why he wore his collar backwards.

The man, who was a priest, said 'I am a Father.'

The little boy replied 'My Dad doesn't wear his collar like that.'

The priest looked up from his book and answered 'I am the Father of many.'

The boy said 'My Dad has 4 boys, 4 girls and two grandchildren and he doesn't wear his collar that way'

The priest, getting impatient, said 'I am the Father of hundreds' and went back to reading his book.

The little boy sat quietly thinking for a while, then leaned over and said, 'Maybe you should use a condom and wear your pants backwards instead of your collar.'
