Kabir says that all the four ‘Vedas’ of Hindu contains wisdom of ages for today’s people.

Kabir has written ‘Saakhi’ of two lines in such a way that they contain extract of all these ‘Vedas’ combine. So if these vedas be treated as milk then Kabir’s ‘Saakhi’ are like ‘Butter’.

These Saakhi with meaning in ‘My English’ – as i have little understanding of it, but directly from heart as i feel it right, so literal meaning be not taken but the essence out of it, which is flowing through words be grasped or tried.

Comments on it will clear the doubt to some extent. Writing what is experienced is already impossible but Kabir tried, so i should too try at least.

Be a watcher.

Witnessing is very powerful when the witnesser is lost. Whenever the no-mind or ego less state happens to coincide with witnessing – one may get a glimpse of inside ‘truth’ that liberates, then you are no more same person.
Kabir said that when outside and inside becomes one, then only you have achieved destiny as human being.
We know about the outside only. Inside is not even felt by many! How can one meet to whom you do not know? Only the inside can find you, there is no other way this is why it is beyond our control. Even if inside wishes to meet you in present moment, then you must be looking at it too, to be able to meet.

Osho advices to become watcher.


No-mind state makes you available in present moment, and witnessing lets you see yourself so that anything coming out can see you ‘watching’ at it. Simple.

Fear: Only wise can dare to check depth of water by feet.


If you fear something it means you do not know ‘Who you are?’.
Fear is always due to unknown, unexperienced or imaginary but well set as truth.
Now neither you know ‘Who you are?’ nor you know about that something you fear.
So there are two unknown, you are the reason for both too.
If you meditate a little, search inside to know ‘Who am i?’ by removing all layers like name, education, colour etc you gathered (came to know from others about you!) since birth then you will be able to know your ‘Original face’, said Lalon Fakhir of Bangladesh now its followers called as Baul – wandering musician singing song to people about knowing their ‘original face’ and respect nature as dutis of every human being.

Once you know any one of two – Yourself or Fear then just by knowing or understanding fear will vanish. Knowing fear is difficult because you can go on making new fear.
Once you have known your’self’ then fear will vanish altogether forever.
This is why ‘you are giving power’ to both by not knowing yourself, the more you postpone your inside journey, the more power fear have over you.

To know about meditation in busy life:

Awareness meditation

A wise person will be patient as well as consistent enough to wait for the favourable season to come for long time without loosing enthusiasm.

In Zen they say ‘Sit silently doing nothing, when season comes, the grass grows by itself green.’

By practicing meditation in daily life fear can vanish one day automatically, because fear is due to ‘presence of two’ in life. Happiness and sadness, win or loose etc etc.

This quantum jump or transformation in your inner being is described by saints of India as ‘गहरे पानी पैठ’ going deep inside water where both the shores meet and become one!

This is measuring deep water by standing at the bank! Fear vanishes immediately, because you have known your’self’. Now every time you need not have to prepare yourself against new fear as you age.

Only wise can do it, wisdom is what he get.

Zen in real life.

African Proverb

It is amazing that what Zen philosophy says in one way, the spiritual way, this african proverb says in material sense-more practical to understand Zen.

Zen people says that just sit silently, doing nothing, season comes and the grass grows itself green!

What worked well in a situation, shallow water, same may not work again if situations are changed, deep water.

Sometimes just leaving things for right time to come to do a job is good decision.

In extreme summer one can measure it using same technique!

Spiritual meaning: in material life much is easily achieved as everyone is living same life.

In spiritual journey a little growth happens when the time is right but it turns out to be quantum leap – like measuring depth of deep water with foot- just you need to keep practicing till then.

Food and Sex

Credit : African proverb FB

It is astonishing that except human being no animal eats once its hunger is satisfied. Other animals gather around Lion to eat the left overs once its hunger gets satisfied.
It seems human being remains hungry 24 hrs!
This is also strange connection, may be due to food, that only human being has no time/season to enter into sex. Every animal has its time/season.
By controlling food this proverb may be controlling the other strangely connected!

One quarter of what you eat keeps you alive.

Three quarter of what you eat keeps your doctor alive- African proverb.

Food of mind is thought. Food of ego is power. Food of greed is money.

One quarter means the lesser the better, three quarter for doctor means working for others by loosing opportunity of enjoying human life by living simple life, enjoying your work as that will lead you to your inner beauty, kingdom of God.

Saint Kabir,India, said that path to be born as human being since beginning is very zig-zag till human being- like an ant moving in search of food from one corner of a room to another (means already we have travelled too much length to cover small distance because of lack of consciousness. Now only one quarter of a mile’s (cm in case of ant example) straight path is left but illusion of this world is so strong that no one can escape from it, if not taken proper precaution while eating, earning, living etc.

So three quarter of mile is already covered after taking birth as a human being and you have enjoyed all these already and now do not get indulged in it again. Focus on remaining one fourth by eating everything one fourth, as only at beginning point this illusion can be controlled.

Tao and law of energy.

Only metaphour can be used to explain ‘the logic’ or ‘the law’ or TAO because it is not logic too at the same time because both opposites are present in it-Wu and Wei.

Like human beings.

According to metaphour of mobile as human body, and data its soul. TAO can be defined as ‘THE UNIVERSAL LAW OF ENERGY’’ :

The law says that it cannot be created or destroyed only converted into one form to another form. That law maintains an equilibrium of all hidden energy – in material form – and expressed energy that we use to drive our gadgets etc.

In this mobile metaphour too:

This law is driving force behind all energy source for data/digits in unmanifest form or processor/mobile in manufested form.

It may be the mobile/processor/computer/tower etc as manifested form of that energy (the white part) from materials of the Earth or the digits it will process (non manifested

Part-black part) or Data for mobile both are in existence due to change in form of that infinite energy. You cannot see the law of energy but it is working continuously maintaining the equilibrium in whole cosmos. It is behind every action in mobile/computer/data/digits.

So is every human being as only manifested part of that infinite energy, and what is amazing that by knowing or ‘seeing’ it in non manifested form one can know the law too and immediately get connected to that infinite reservoir of energy.

Once you get connected to it, you become eternal like Lao Tzu. As saints have said who have known it, that :This is very purpose of every human life.

DaTa and MiNd

The Kingdom of God or Tao or Consciousness or Soul is like Data for a mobile phone.

If you exist then the whole world around you exists too. The seed of your existence of world around lies in a person’s mind, and so every person defines the world around him differently, may be they all are living in very similar locality, religion and country.

The greatest gift of God to human being is that he can enter into eternity, timelessness and soul – called as Home by Indian sages/mystics – without leaving this body.

Once a person gets a glimpse of it, immediately he comes to know that it is same for all. It is the subtle driving force behind everything.

It can be explained to new generation as Digits/Data.

The mobile phones, computers etc runs on it. A mobile phone cannot experience it while it has a processor called ‘Mind’ of the mobile. Even if some mobiles have same types of mind every person uses it differently- creating a world of its own out of it.

Mind of processor is made by human being so it does not have ability to transcend from itself using it, like A human mind can.

Imagine if a mobile’s mind has ability to transcend then it can see or become the Digit/Data. On experiencing Data/digits for first time, immediately it will notice that no other mobile is different! The soul of every mobile is same as that of every human being. Only the physical appearance and use differs!

All runs on binary digit 0 and 1, complimentary numbers, in harmony to create everything available on it, in action.

When that mobile, which has seen the data/digits, informs other mobiles about their soul and uses contradictory words, because they do not understand numbers 0 or 1, then the mobiles are bound to get confused.

How can opposite in harmony or in a well defined manner are making all of us run? and we are actually not doing anything! We are not the doer actually and things are done through us! The programmer has written whole programme already! We are just tool! And if we keep doing without attachment we cam also see the data!

Celebrate! That you are being used by the maker of Data/digit and body. There were millions before you and they are of no use at all now, and one day you also will be sent to that garbage bin. Do not feel proud because there will be millions after you too, and they will break all your set records! So do not run behind records, just do your work with totality.

Getting a glimpse of Data is like ‘becoming a lamp’ or ‘Satori’ or enlightenment and then ‘Nirvaana’ or ‘Awakening’ means remaining 24×7 in form of Data/Binary Digit leaving the body/mobile as well as master both.

Then by remaining in Data/Digit form you never become outdated and can meet and play with all previous Data/Digit in that eternal freedom of emptiness of infinite size.

Osho and many mystics said that after getting a glimpse of your soul/self/consciousness, the feeling that everything is mine as i know the secret behind all these makes it a King. With this experience it enters into the Kingdom of God or Soul or Tao or Consciousness.

Alas but for mobile phone but for human being it is possible because our mind is gifted with such capability by God himself so that with the help of it one cam go beyong it too in no-mind state.

Actually Data is natural state of every human being. It is the mind that creates illusion to him as he is a mobile. So all the different catagory gets created automatically and politics begins. This politics lead to honor, money and muscle power. So a whole illusionry world came into existence in which natural state seems to be illusion and illusion becomes real.

Without experiencing no-mind state it is not possible to understand.

Meditation to bring no-mind state coupled with total awareness in any moment may bring that experience possible for everyone-said Osho, and it is still being experienced by many of his formal/informal desciples.

Once you get a glimpse or satori or enlightenment before Nirvaana/Awakening/Tao then again the nature comes you your help to remind you to remain in present moment more and more.

Heart Sutra by Buddha/Osho is about this journey only.

Heart Sutra by Buddha/Osho is about this journey only.

You don’t know why you are existing in the first place-Osho

Line ‘ .,,You don’t know why you are existing in the first place…’ is most powerful according to me.

Its answer, if searched inside, may lead one to ‘real path’ that one never loose.

The answer is already there all around you, just the capacity to ‘see’ it is regained. In childhood everyone has lived it.

It is felt first time, without body touching, in other or other things and get a glimpse of it. Lao Tzu got it while a leaf was dropping and carried away by wind without its permission/will! Such is in nature with everyone including all including human being but realisation is needed.

A lady saint got it while earthen pot filled with water felled from her head and neither water nor pot left for any use, that she was dreaming while carrying, and immediately came out of dream world around.

Then in next step one can get a glimpse of it without anyone’s help!

This is ‘the path’ Osho is talking about, that one never loose and worth travelling.

Lao Tzu called it ‘The way’ or The pathless path.

While we travel on the road we see the road as the way but actually we are 3D objects and moving, in volume, in empty space above it! That ‘invisible way’ but real ‘way/path’ like phenomena happens automatically in any moment or may not happen at all.

Guru Nanak described that emptiness as ‘door’. Usually A room is composed of four walls, a roof, a window and a door. We are unable to pass through walls, while X-Ray can pass through those walls easily. We can pass through air, while for a super sonic plane – air acts as a barrier. So solid may not be solid and emptiness can be a barrier.

So emptiness may exist!

And reverse can also be true that we feel only that we exist but actually it may not be the case orvtrue. We may be pure emptiness! Or both together at a time ie body and soul. Soul being emptiness all around body.

According to Guru Nanak guru or master can only lead you to that ‘emptiness’ of door being visible or felt by you even for a fraction of second. So Guru Dwara of Nanak.

In no-mind state and simultaneously in witnessing awareness it can be seen.

For Gen Z or millenial generation ‘the path’ can be best visualised as ‘Data’. It is there in action or every internet action taking place in it but it is invisible.

To be able to ‘see’/‘feel’ the ‘Data’ even for a fraction of second is what is called ‘Satori’.

Organic unity

Osho said:”The moment you divide organic unity, it dies. You can divide only mechanical entities but not organic ones. You can take a bicycle apart and put it togerger too, and you are not going to loose anything.

But if you take apart any human being’s body parts like a bicycle and put it together again, you will not get the same person you have divided; you will have only the corpse.”

My understanding on this quote:-

No human being can be labelled as introvert or extrovert, schizophrenic etc etc. Every human being has both types, only one can surface at a time, as per the need and requirements of the situation. Evert male is complimented by a female inside, and every female is complimented by a male inside.

Whole cosmos is in mood of celebrations every moment. Two in contineous harmony becoming one is called organic. When body is divided the harmony gets lost, but bicycle is one only so again becomes one. It is described as lord Krishana playing ‘raas’ or ‘garba’ – dance by striking sticks with others while moving in circle-with 16,000 Gopiyan-female charachters in true love with lord Krishna. Scientists at International Space Station are able to look at this celebration going on the Earth when every 5-6 minutes rays of the Sun touches or leaves a place to begin or end the day at dawn and birds starts chirping, flowers begins to flower spreading their scent etc. This dawn period lasts about 5-6 minutes so 16000×5.4=86400 minutes in a day! From ISS they can see it happening every moment and record it too. Our own harmony is no different from that of the Earth or Cosmos, but we fail to remember it once lost during adolecent period after childhood. Everyone has lived in it as a child but during period of understanding body, senses and mind and to make a living it gets lost only. Meditation helps to regain the lost grounds only. You are no different from that cosmic organic unity, being the most important part of it too-as only human being is able to have it, loose it and again recover it. This recovering is called as ‘Entering the kingdom of God again after being expelled from it as Adam or Eve’- by Jesus. Blogsite osholeela.in for more.

Recovering happens on its own. The moment you recover, even thought of loosing it seems you as impossible then and even you try to loose-you will not be successful. It is available every moment to you! Just like you lost keys of your home and searching despatatrly or looking for misplaced specs and it is just on you or your head!

Saint Kabir said that those who depend upon others will sure not get it, but it may help to begin the journey inside.

Slowly slowly bring awareness, while doing it, small routine jobs. Saint Kabir also said that such person, gold jewellery can get repair from any damage but not the earthen/china clay pot without leaving a mark.

Keep trying as it is only that we can do and keep praying too, to your religious God or Osho like mentors. As invible body theirs only job is to help such people.

Also whatever you gained in this life will be with you forever and cannot be lost even due to death. So this is only worth travelling journey. Keep it up, i too will pray for you and my blessings be with you too.

Inner journey is nothing but finding that complimentary part within. It may require help from that complimentary part outside in physical form. So both are created and will remain in harmony forever.

Totality is the key to ‘see’ the truth-that liberates.

Like a movie,
our life begins with a blank screen but with a suspense too.

Then your role, characteristics and stage is prepared till adolescent age,

You live that role with or without learning, unlearning and relearning with a suspense.

The suspense of the movie is that any moment the screen will go blank! For any one character as its role is over or for all together!

Spirirualiry is recognising the life as a movie while playing our role in the movie as well. It is how you play your role I.e totality of your being involved in it that defines or decides it.

Spirituality prepares you to be ready to come out of it any moment and see the changes in scenes from outside the theatre during your life here and realise that it was a dream. Nighter you are the doer nor anything is done unto you. You are the emptiness of the screen on which all these are projected from outside or mind-body combination or ego etc.
