An Easy Spiritual Discipline
!! Shri Hari !!
While giving lectures to the children of the demons, Prahladji says – what effort is required in realizing Paramatma (God, Supreme Being) ? - “koti prayaasosurbaalakaah?” (Srimad Bhagwat 7/7/38)
There is one point that one must remember regarding sense objects that, things of this world are not present in all places and at all times. For attaining these, one has to make significant effort. However God is present at all places, at all times, in all beings, and in all situations. There is not a place, time, individual, thing where he is not present. For his attainment all that is needed is intense longing. Just like we have a particular object in our possession, then it is on looking at it that we are able to see it! But to see God, it is not essential to even look in a particular direction, because Paramatma is outside, inside (within-without) and everywhere. Therefore, one can attain Him simply by longing to attain Him!
In realizing God, no effort is required. In this, the only requirement is a deep thirst, a want. And even this want is not difficult. In reality, this need is present in all human beings, naturally and on its own; because man feels something lacking within him, but the mistake he makes is that he wishes to fulfill the deficiency with the aid of the world. All things in this world cannot be acquired by all, they never have and they never will be and even if they are acquired, then too they will not remain with you. Even if the things remain, then, you will not remain. There will definitely be separation from it. Before too there was separation and later on too there will be separation. In between the union is only perceived, it is not there as such. Then too we consider our relationship with those things and desire them, this is a very big mistake.
You have considered yourself to be one with the body, this body is me and this body is mine, this is the main mistake! You are not the body! If you were the body, then you would not die at all and if you died, then you would take the body with you. After dying the body (dead) remains right here, and in that body too we are present. But neither the body goes with us, nor the body stays with us. Therefore accepting that you are the body is a mistake and to consider the body as ours is also a mistake. We cannot keep the body, the way we wish to keep it. We have no control over it, then how is it ours? If the body is not ours, then this money, wealth, glories, family etc. how are they ours? Therefore, what is the difficulty in accepting that this world is not ours? Only God is ours. It has become difficult to regard the thing that is in fact ours – God, as our very own, because we regard the world as ours.
The scriptures say that Paramatma (God) is our very own and the world in not our own - your experience tells you this. At this time though you may not believe this, you are unable to accept this; however do not lose your self-assurance. Do not think that we are unable to accept this at this time. Though it is not believed at this time, but in fact, “I am this body” this is not so. Stay firm with this point. Whether you believe or not, whether you experience it or not, do not worry about it; but do not make this point worthless.
This body is not me, and it is not mine – this point is true, and I am God’s and God is mine, this point is also true. Even on being true, it is not accepted, then this is our weakness. How can our non acceptance make the truth become false?
Questioner - How do we end up making this false?
Swamiji - Whatever we see through our senses, intellect, we consider it to be real and our own; by this the point becomes false. Due to this, even if we are unable to give up sense of mine-ness with those things, then so be it; but “body and world are not mine” this is the truth – that much you must honor. If you don’t see God, then so be it, but God is ours and we are God’s, this point is true. Even if Brahmaji says that “See you are of the world and the world is yours, you are not God’s and God is not yours,” then too clearly say that “Maharaj! We will not listen to your point” So be it, even if we have not experienced this so far, even if it is not entirely sunk in; but this is the truth! God Himself has said - “Mamaivaansho jeevaloke” (Gita 15/7) “this being is a part of Me alone” Saints and great souls have also said so - “ishvar ans jeev avinaashi” (Manas, Uttar. 117/2) Therefore I join my hands and pray to you, have mercy on me and accept this point today. Even if there is no change in you upon acceptance, there is hunger and thirst just like before, there is likes and dislikes just like before, but please do not make these talks false. We are only God’s - accept this, thereafter whether you experience or not , whether you are awakened within or not, do not worry about this. In the end, this point will become firm; because this is the truth.
It is the absolute truth that “Only God is mine, there is no else” (mere to Giridhar Gopal, doosero na koyi.) What is the difficulty in accepting this? You certainly know how to accept. Just as you accept someone as your friend, your Guru etc., similarly you also know about not accepting, just as initially you accepted yourself as a bachelor, but on getting married, you no longer saw yourself as a bachelor, but you begin to accept yourself as a married man. If you leave the household life and become a “sadhu”, then you stop considering the house, the family as your own, and you begin to regard the Guru Maharaj as your very own. Therefore you already know both – about acceptance and non-acceptance. Everyone has knowledge of acceptance and non-acceptance. Now apply this knowledge by engaging only in God, and not in the world.
The mistake we make is that while listening we accept, but then we trivialize it. Whereas that which is not true, we begin to accept it as true. One more mistake we make is that brothers-sisters say that we forget this point. Really speaking if you have firmly accepted this, then even if it is not remembered then so be it. Without remembering, you accept that you are at present in Vrindavan. Has any brother-sister completed even one “mala” repeating that “ I am in Vrindavan”? Just one time you accepted that you are currently in Vrindavan, then do you have to try to remember time and again? Is there any doubt about? When someone asks, you immediately say that you are in Vrindavan. Similarly, without remembering too, the point remains within. When you start to believe that you are in Haridwar, then this will be considered a mistake. Therefore I do not regard the not remembering as a mistake. “I am God’s” - if this is not remembered then it is not a mistake; but the mistake is when one accepts that “I am not God’s and I belong to the world.”
After accepting one time with a true heart that you belong to God, then if you don’t remember at all, so be it. Now what is to be remembered is God’s name. Repeat His divine Name (japa), remember Him, Sing His glories, meditate on His divine play, meditate on His form - these are to be done. After accepting God as your very own, let it be. But do not doubt that you are God’s. Whether you a believe or not, whether you experience or not, do not be concerned.
Many people say that what difference has this made to your life? Even if there are no changes, that is, no change in measurement, no change in weight, no change in color, no change in mannerism, no change whatsoever, then too it is OK! However “I cannot accept, I cannot remember, I am not capable, I don’t have the rights, I am not the proper recipient, I did not meet a Guru, I did not meet any saint, the times are not good, it is the age of Kali yug; the environment is not proper; associations are not good” - by talking about these, do not make trash this point. By applying various tactics, if you continue to make this point trashy, then you will not attain perfection. However, if you do not scrap this point, then surely you will attain complete knowledge. This attainment can be in a few days, months, or it can take years. If you continue to indulge in worldly pleasures, then it will take very long, but in the end you will attain that complete knowledge.
Those who work in the fields, they sow the seed in the fields and feel at ease. That seed gives birth to a sapling on its own. If time and again one takes out the seed to look at it, then the seed will never germinate. There is a story. There was a mango grove. The monkeys were eating mangoes from there so the gardener threw stones at the monkey and scared them off. While going each of the monkeys took one mango in their mouth and one in each of the hands and began to run. The monkeys had a meeting that this evil gardener is not letting us eat the mangoes! Some wise monkeys said that how can they let us eat mangoes from their own groves? If we also have a mango grove, then no one will refuse us from eating mangoes from there. They thought that we have the mango seeds, why don’t we grow these. All we have to do is sow the seed, water it then the grove will be ready, and we will eat plenty of mangoes! On consensus from all those that were present, they decided to proceed. They sowed the mango seed on the bank of a river nearby. Now, time and again they removed the seed to look to see whether the mango had started growing or not, and then they would re-plant it! Till dusk, they kept removing the seed and replanting it! Can a mango grow like this? If you want to farm, then sow the seed, water it, and become free of all worries. That which is not there right now, it will most certainly germinate and appear as sapling; then that which is the truth, why will it not materialize? We are God’s and God is ours – this is the truth and it is spontaneously realized. What is the effort required in accepting this? What force is needed? Do you need some knowledge? Do you need some abilities? The simple straight-forward point is that we are God’s and God is ours; we do not belong to the world, and the world is not ours. Now, do not root is out, like the kernel. In other words, do not test it that are there any changes in us or not? When the seed germinates, the plant will also grow, later on the mangoes will also grow and it will all be great! However have mercy and do not overlook this point. This is a very easy means of God Realization and there is nothing else to be done. Simply, “I am God’s and God is mine.” Do not waiver from this firm determination.
This brother sitting here, first regarded himself as a bachelor, but now he is married therefore he now says that he is not a bachelor. Now if someone asks, are you married? Then will he say, wait a minute, let me think; this year I did not get married, the year before also I did not get married, but twenty years ago I got married, Yes-Yes, now I remember, I am married! Why do you not say so? Because once married, it is done. This is acceptance. Even if someone asks in deep sleep, then too you will say that you are married. Similarly, “ I am God’s and God is mine” this will be remembered without attempting to remember. There will be no mistake in this. A mistake is when you will think that I am not God’s, and God is not mine; because my conduct is not proper, my behavior is not good, Do not raise such obstacles. Even if there is no faith, no trust , no remembrance of God, no changes for the better, life has not improved spiritually, even if nothing whatsoever has happened, then too do not scrap this acceptance (maanyataa), that I am God’s and God is mine.
I have even asked those great men in my eyes and they said, that those men that accept God as their very own, the responsibility of making Himself known to them is borne by God. The reason is only God can make Himself known, we cannot know Him. Where we are incapable, there God’s capabilities come to use. This is such a great point that “ I am God’s and God is mine, I am not the world’s and the world is not mine.” You have the capability of accepting this! Whatever abilities you have, that much you apply. That which you do not have, God will fulfill those. “Sune ri meinne nirbal ke bal Ram.” In those things that you are powerless, there, God’s powers comes to use. However, in those things where you are able to apply your powers, if you do not apply that strength then in this the fault is yours, the responsibility for this is not on God. You accept a few people as your own and others you do not accept as your own - why do you not apply this ability towards God? Whatever you are capable of doing, that is the extent of the hope that God has from you. That which you cannot do, God does not expect that out of you. What do you hope from a little child, do you expect that he carries a heavy bag of wheat flour and bring it home? You only expect as much as he can do. Then does God lack even that much honesty? Will God tell you to do the things that you cannot accept? That which you can accept, you must accept that! That is it! This spiritual discipline that I have shared with you today, is so easy, and so straight-forward and all can do it. Whether someone is a learned and educated person, or uneducated, whether it is a brother or a sister. Whether you have good conduct or bad, whether you have good qualities or bad qualities, whether you are a gentleman or a evil man, however you are, all can simply accept this.
It has been said for a chaste (pativrata) wife -
Ekayi dharma ek barat nemaa |
Kaayam bachan mana pati pad prema ||
(Manas, Aranya. 5/10)
This is my husband, on having a firm acceptance of this, however may be the husband, she will become a chaste wife. Was Ravan a great and extra-ordinary man? However, Mandodari being a chaste wife, followed her “Dharma” properly, whereby she was able to get to know the greatness of Lord Ram, whereas Ravan, even on being told, did not listen! Where did Mandodari gain so much knowledge? This knowledge came from “pativrata dharma”. Can God say that your husband is not of good conduct’ therefore you will not attain salvation? No, He cannot say so. If his conduct is not proper then what are we to do? We have abided in our “pativrata dharma” properly, then God will give it’s full glories - “Binu shram naari param gati lahayi” (Manas, Aranya. 5/18). The responsibility to attain that eternal and highest state, is not on her. That responsibility lies on the scriptures, the saints and on God. She fulfill her “pativrata-dharma” then she is abiding and fulfilling the commands of the Rishis-Munis, Saints-great souls, and God; therefore they will have to give her salvation. If the husband is not capable, then how is it his fault? Mother and father got her married so he became her husband. Her fault will be when she does not follow her “pativrata-dharma”. Similarly “I am God’s and God is mine” - this point, if you do not accept then it is your fault. But if you want to accept from within and you are unable to do so, then don’t be concerned. Apply your complete strength. At the very minimum, do not accept the opposite, do not trash this point. This is an extra-ordinary point that has been shared with you.
I am God’s and God is mine” - only accept this much, then further along what should happen will happen on its own. After accepting this, become free of any uncertainties and ambiguities. Now whatever effort is needed, you do. Do divine name repetition, chant the Lord’s divine name (kirtan), do satsang, engage in spiritual studies, go to the temple, behold the Lord. Do not do any actions that are opposed to God and the scriptures. To the extent that is within your control, as much as you can do, that much you should do. Do not waiver on this point, whether unfavorable times come or favorable; whether someone approves of you or opposes you. This is the truth; thus we have accepted it ! Accepted it once and for all.
Now a question can arise that if we do so, but thereafter do not attain God, then what? The answer to this is that till now, in so many years, what great work have you done, which will be short-changed? If it happens it will be gains only. From all of you present here, any of you tell me, what will be the loss? There will be no loss, and I do not deceive! There will be only gains; because this is the truth, and the truth will ultimately be realized as the truth. How long will a false thing last? By regarding this body and this world as our own, will it become ours? They have never been ours and will never be ours; however, if you regard them as yours, you will have to suffer and you will have to cry! Instead of being deceived by it, and later on accepting it as true, it is better to accept on my saying. Tell me what deception will it lead to? And if you are deceived, then you have been deceived so many times so far, therefore one more time be deceived by my saying! However if amongst you all, if any of you see this as a deception, then tell me brothers! There is no deception oin this whatsoever. Besides gains, there is not the least bit of any losses. Not only do I say this, but God Himself has said this - “mamaivaansho jeevaloke” (Gita 15/7) and Saints and great personalities have said so – “Ishvar ansh jeeva abinaashi” (Manas, Uttar 117/2). Therefore accept, grab hold of this point with a firm conviction. This is the principle that has been agreed upon by saints. Saints and Great Souls have done so and seen for themselves and they have showered us with their grace by writing this down, and to reveal it. Just as some father, earns a lot of wealth, and gives it to his son, then what effort did the son have to go through ? Similarly, this is the wealth earned by the Saints and Great Souls, which they are giving to us. Now it is our duty to protect it, not to waste it. It becomes worthless upon looking at it and doing. You regard as real, those things that are seen with your senses and intellect and the things that are done, but you consider the words of saints and great souls as imperfect. This is a mistake. That which is seen is not there. Actions are not permanent and their fruits are also not permanent. Thus depending on them, by dishonoring the Truth, do not choke the Truth. Do not cause violence to the Truth. By violating the Truth, the Truth is not harmed, rather we are harmed, we only take a fall. Truth will always remain the Truth. Truth will never be wiped out - “Naabhaavo vidhyate satah” (Gita 2/16). If you do not abide in it, you will not benefit. Therefore, accept the point that - “I am God’s and God is mine”. This point is a very easy, but of a very high stature. It encompasses everything.

From "Bhagwaan se Apnaapan " in Hindi by Swami Ramsukhdasji
Respect Your Experience
There is one very great point. Have mercy on me andplease pay attention. Whatever circumstances one has been placedin, consider those circumstances and situations as best of all andutilize it well, then you will be benefited. Whatever things youhave received, you don't need any more things than that. Howevermuch knowledge you have, you don't need to know any more thanthat. The amount of strength that you have, you don't need anymore than that. Paramatma (God) can be realized simply byputting to proper use the strength, the intellect, the abilities, thecircumstances etc. that you have. This is the absolute Truth and isthe principle.Your knowledge is not less, however, what you know youare not utilizing it well. You do not give it importance - that isyour limitation. The circumstances that have been presented infront of you, will not remain like this forever. This knowledge isnot something that you know only slightly, you know thiscompletely and entirely. If you utilize this knowledge properly,then this knowledge that you have is adequate for your benefit. Itis not even slightly deficient. The proper utilization of thisknowledge is that, do not get trapped in the circumstances thathave presented themselves to you. Neither become elated ordejected in them.Questioner: We know this point, however the extentwe desire to know, that much knowledge we do not have.Swamiji: Whatever you have knowledge about, are youutilizing that knowledge properly? Those things that you know tobe perishable, do you have desire to attain it or not?Questioner: Yes we do.Swamiji: Then where have you understood the term"perishable"? In reality, if you truly understood "perishable", thenyou would not desire to attain it. What is the gain in attaining theperishable? Just like a wealthy man has money. Without themoney he would not be called wealthy, similarly this world hasonly perishables and perishing things. That which is perishablehow can it benefit us, how can it be for our welfare?You your “self” are not perishable, rather the body isperishable. That which you have received is going to perish, butyou the “self” will not perish. Things were not there initially andwill not be there later on. Rather even in the present it iscontinuously moving towards destruction. You were there initiallyand will remain even after. Your existence will remain at all times.A question was put forth to me, that in the present how to gainknowledge of our existence in the future? The answer to that is,that you are afraid to do bad things and you are pleased when youdo good deeds; because you are of the sentiment that by doing evildeeds you will later on suffer, and by doing good deeds, you willgain happiness in the future. This is proof that you have acceptedyour existence in the future. If we do not accept our existence inthe future, then who will go to heaven? Who will go to hell? Youwill be reincarnated? Who will be liberated? On attainingsalvation, you will be blissful or will the world be joyful? Thepoint is that you will remain, and the body and other things willnot.If you think carefully how can that which is eternal andimperishable attain happiness from perishable? By saying thatsomething is perishable it means, it is nothing but destructible,besides being destructible and perishable, it has nothing."Ant tohi tajainge paamar tu ne tajai ab hi te."That thing which is going to perish, utilize it but do not
trust it. Do not depend on it as your support, having the notion
that this thing will gratify me, that it will lead to my prosperity etc.
Think deeply about this - By getting those things that are currently
not with you, how will you be gratified? How will you prosper?
That which is not there right now, will also not remain later on in
the future. It will break away, therefore how will it make you
happy? Who knows with certainty whether you get it or not? And
even if you get it, then too it will not remain, because that which is
perishable and destructible will perish.
The body etc. is perishable - this you know, but you do
not believe it. In other words, you do not give importance to that
which you know to be true. If you gave importance to what you
know, then you would not depend on perishables. You would not
have any expectation or hope from these perishables. You would
not become happy on getting them or meeting them. You would
not be saddened by not getting or meeting them. You would not
desire for them to remain forever and forever. You would not
worry about them perishing. On not attaining the situations that
you desire, you become unhappy. Then this unhappiness is
nothing but stupidity. It is only stupidity. To want to hold on to
those things and situations that will not remain, and later being
saddened by their departure - what else is all this besides stupidity?
If some calamity comes to us, some sorrow comes to us, than we
think how will this go away? But in reality, it is going away.
Whether it is favorable situations or unfavorable ones, they will not
remain. That which comes, is of the nature to go away.
Sarve kshayaantaa nichayaah patanaantaah samuchryaah
sanyogaa viprayogontaa marayaantam cha jeevitam (Valmiki
The end of all hoarding is utter annihilation. The end of
all worldly successes is a fall. The end of coming together is parting
ways. The end of life is death.
That which is going to part, how can one gain happiness
on meeting it? What is there to be unhappy by it's going away.
Neither happiness remains, nor sorrow remains. Only the self
remains. If the one that remains (Self), becomes one that which
comes and goes, one that is happy and sad, then it is only it's own
It is only on attaining That which never perishes, and
That which is present right now, Paramatma, one will gain the kind
of happiness that remains forever. Besides Paramatma if you
become satisfied with anything else, whether it is respect, honor,
fame, relaxation, money, family, prosperity etc., you will be
I am telling you that which is already in your experience.
Whether there may be someone highly educated, or someone that
has not read a single alphabet, I am telling only that which is in
their experience. I am not telling you something that is of a
particular “varna”, of particular stage in life, of a particular caste,
community, race, of a certain organization or lineage, rather I am
telling you something that is the experience of all of mankind.
That which has come together, will inevitably part - this is the law
of life. Now tell me whose exclusive experience is this – of the
Hindus, or of the Muslims, or of the Christians? It pertains to
whom – to children, to young ones of age, or to the elders?
Whose experience is this - women or men’s? Of saint’s, or sadhu’s
or householder’s? Whose experience is this - tell me? This point
belongs to all. Please give attention to this. If you do so, you will
be blessed and fortunate. What does giving attention mean?
Simply speaking, do not become happy or unhappy by lending
importance to the thing or situation which is transitory.
Why do you seek the support of a thing that is going to
separate from you? First you took it's support, then on
experiencing the separation, you became unhappy, then too you
take it's very support and time and again experience suffering! If
you are not pleased or displeased by things subject to birth and decay, then you will realize the unmanifested Supreme Truth of
Life (Paramatma). To desire that which has an origin and later
decays, that whose birth and death you know, and to feel happy
having obtained it, “is” in reality the maze or bondage of life.
Besides this you have no other dilemma. If you eradicate or root
out this maze, you will attain Paramatmatattva (God). That
Divine Essence (God) has no end or separableness. It ever
remains AS-IS, because it is the Truth (Sat). The real never ceases
to be - "naabhaavo vidhyate satah." (Gita 2/16).
If someone insults you, you become very unhappy, then is
the insult abiding and everlasting? When someone honours you
and you feel happy, then is that honour everlasting? You (Self) will
remain. It is a matter of wonder, that the everlasting becomes
happy and sad with the ever fleeting things. At the very beginning
in the Gita, Bhagwaan gives the following message –
na tvevaaham jaatu naasam ne tvam neme janaadhipaah
na chaiva ne bhavishyaamah sarva vayamatah param
Neither I, nor you, nor the kings were here before. Nor
will they remain later on. What was meant by these words? It
means, that right now the situation you are in, it will not remain
later on. That thing or circumstance which ever changing, it will
vanish into thin air, in course of time. Of what avail is it in then to
be sad or unhappy? Why are you becoming happy on attaining it?
If you received honour, then what avail is it? What did you gain
by receiving honour? You Sheer deception. Besides deception
you received nothing else. Knowingly why do you suffer a
deception? From today consciousness should dawn and grow, that
you will not be pleased when honoured and displeased when
dishonoured. As neither honour, nor the dishonour are
everlasting. What difference does it make to you in either case?
Achievement of that which is ever changing or decaying is thus as
good as no achievement at all. In reality, the perishable is
constantly going away from you every moment. Neither happiness will stay, nor unhappiness will stay. If you get these then what
difference does it make? What you got was perishable only. If you
get it, then too you did not get, and if you did not get it, then too
you did not get it. In reality, there is always separation from that
which is perishing, there is no union at all. Union is only
something you have accepted. That which is always separating,
will not stay with you at all, what is there to become happy or
unhappy with it? Is this true or not? Tell me.
Listener: This is absolutely true!
Swamiji: If this is absolutely true, then why cause any
delay? Accept this truth, at this very moment. There should not
be any delay in this. It permits of no future, not even a minute or
two! If you do not get pleased or displeased by the perishable, you
will attain the Imperishable. If you do not, you may twist my ear.

From book in Hindi "Acche Bano" by Swami
How to Attain Victory Over Anger
Just as you learn to keep accounts, and when you learn the key elements of accounting then tracking becomes very easy. Similarly there is a main point, the key element, the root of every question, and if you learn this then the answer to that question will automatically come to you.The question that has come is that how to attain victory over anger? Then the question really is, where does anger come from? Gita says - “Anger comes from desire” - “kaamaatkrodhaayabhijaayate” (Gita 2/62). What is that anger? Human beings have understood that “desires are for money, wealth, grandeur, power, etc.” - These are also desires, but what is the main and real desire? “This should happen and this should not happen” - the name of this subtle want within is called “desire”.
First you hold on to the point that “this should certainly happen” and when that does not happen, then you become angry. And “This should not happen” and when someone does that or does something opposing to your wishes, then you get angry. This should happen and this should not happen, this is the root of all anger.
There is no gain in desiring that it should happen like this, or it should not happen like this; because will the world ask us before doing something? Will they do according to your liking? You want from your wife, son and servant that they should listen to you, then do they not wish the same of you? If they have nothing on their mind then they will do as you say, but in their minds too there is that thought that “ I will do it this way or not do it this way” then how will they listen only to you? When you too are not willing to listen to how they want things done, then what rights do you have that they should listen to your ways? Therefore when the feeling arises within that “This should happen like this and it should not happen like this” - then leave the insistence that the person should do it like that alone. In this insistence is your pride, in other words, I am greater, therefore he should listen to me. This pride of greatness is the main cause, and when things do not happen the way you want, then that pride itself comes in the form of anger.
If you desire peace then give up pride; because pride is the root of all the demoniac qualities. In the shadow of pride of greatness lies all the demoniac qualities of Kaliyug, All the bad qualities pertaining to demoniac qualities such as anger, greed, attachment, jealousy, passion, hypocrisy, deceit etc., they all come under the umbrella of pride, because pride is their king. If you do not give up pride then how will anger go away! Therefore give up that pride.
Now what is the solution for giving it up? Those who do not listen to you, they are helping you in getting rid of your pride, and those who listen and do as you say, they are swelling your pride - are you getting this point or not? The people who are obeying you are not benefiting you as much as, those who don’t do as you say. For you own good, the more that your pride is confronted the more better it is for you. Therefore you must be grateful to those who are not listening to you, because as such this is for our own well-being.
If they knowingly do not listen to you, saying that brother, we are not listening to you because it is for your own good, as your pride will go away, then to it is to your benefit only. They are not further swelling your pride i.e. your pride is not getting further bloated. Do you not wish for what is for your good or do you not? Do you want your spiritual progress or do you want your downfall? If you desire your spiritual growth, then it will be possible only when you are free of pride. And you will become free of pride when no one listens to you. If someone listens to you, then your words become established and this itself is cause for pride. This itself is demoniac tendency - “dambho darpobhimaanashrav krodhah” (Gita 16/4). Therefore those who do not listen to you, they are gracing you immensely. They are removing your demoniac tendencies and instilling divine tendencies in you.
Now the question that has come is that by not listening the child will become insolent and arrogant? By listening to you, you will become filled with pride, and if he does not listen then he will become insolent - now think deeply on these two points. If you are not there, then too by doing as he wants he will become insolent regardless, however how will your pride go away? Insolent he will be regardless of you, but your pride will not go away. Therefore you must get rid of your pride first and the foremost.
Second point is that if you do not dominate over him then your mild nature, that is free from pride will make an impression on him, by which his insolence will go away, rather he will become alright. You say to him that brother, you must not do this sort of work, and even thereafter if he does so, let go and become peaceful and silent. If he behaves insolently, he will get the consequences of his actions. On getting the fruits, he will become alert, and then his insolence will automatically go away. But by your persistent telling, his insolence will not go away as quickly as it would go away from suffering the consequences of his insolent behavior. The reason for this is that in his mind he will hold on to his own points, and what you say will stay superficially on the surface like silver plating. That plating will wear off, then how can his insolence go away entirely? The real solution to getting rid of his insolence is to get rid of your own pride.
If man wants to live in a family, then he must learn how to live in a family. The art of living in the family is that do as they say, do according what their wishes are. Fulfill your duty and make them happy.
What does it mean to live in a family? You have certain obligation to fulfill your duty. What is your duty? To fulfill your duties properly, whether the wife listens, does not listen, whether the son listens, does not listen, whether brother listens, does not listen, whether parents listen, do not listen. Do not ever look towards whether they do their duty or not. When you look towards their duty, and see towards their insolent or rebellious behavior etc., during such times you are deviating from your duty. Rather, you are falling from your duty. As such, where has it been said that your duty is to see towards other’s faults? No where in the scriptures it has been said that you see towards other’s faults; rather it has been said that this world is made up of the three constituents of nature (mode of passion “rajas”, ignorance “tamas” and goodness “sattva”, it is filled with faults.
Gun yah ubhaya na dekhiahin dekhia so abibek ||
(Manas 7/41)If others have good qualities you may see them, but do not see their bad qualities. If you see towards their bad qualities, those qualities will come in you. And on seeing those bad qualities if you are getting angry with them to rescue them from their willful acts, then you cannot be saved from that anger. Therefore you do your duty. We are not to see towards other’s duty, nor are we to see towards their flaws. Yes! If you have a son, then it is your duty to teach him good lessons, but wanting that he should do exactly as you say - that is not your duty. That is his duty. It is not your duty to show him what his duty is. Your duty is only to say that son, look it is not good to do like this. If he says - “no, no father, I will do it like this”; then say – “OK, do it that way!” This is a very good medicine. I too am taking this medicine. The medicine that has been given, is a very effective medicine. If you say – “Do like this” and if he says, “No ! I will do like that only.” Then
simply say – “OK! do it like that.”Rajjab ros na kijiye koyi kahe kyon hi |
Hasker utter dijiye haa babaji yu hi ||If what he is doing is sinful or unlawful, then do not accept it. We are to say that which is in accordance with the scriptures, however if they do not listen, then do the scriptures say to fight with them or to control them? You only have the rights to tell them what you know to be true, “karmanyavaadhikaaraste” (Gita 2/47) but thinking that they should do exactly as you say - that is the fruit, to which you have no rights. “Maa phaleshu kadaachan” (Gita 2/47). You have done your part, your duty was only to point out. It was not your duty to make then do as you say! To do as you say is their duty. We only have to explain their duty. If they fulfill their duty then there is no obstacle in your spiritual progress and if they do not fulfill their duty then too there is no loss. There is no loss for you at all, because you have said what is for their welfare. This is a priceless point !

So much more than a Girl, a Human Being
Very good question :D
Let's get into then.
I am becoming Christopher Nolan :D
New movie will be named- “JOKER : AFTER THE DARK KNIGHT”
Two police took one man and kicked him into the cell.
He shouted with pain, “Ahhhh! Bastards!!!! I have rights too”
Suddenly, he heard a laughing noise from a nearby cell, “Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha”
He said, “Who it is? STOP IT, I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE. STOP IT”
“Good doctor, I presume or should I say bad……. Scarecrow!!! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha”
Scarecrow: “You are Joker, aren't you?”
Joker: “We finally meet then. Ha, ha, ha, ha”
Scarecrow: “Do you know what has happened outside?”
Joker: “No. I don't care. Ha, ha, ha, ha”
Scarecrow: “Stop acting so insane all the time and listen Batman is dead”
Joker: “WHAT?!!!!!!????? CANNOT BE. ONLY I WILL KILL HIM”
Scarecrow: “Yeah, sorry to disappoint you, Buddy, but I was working for some very powerful people and they managed to inflict a far more damage to the city than you could ever possibly imagine and along with Batman”
Joker: “No, no, no, no, no”
Crying sounds was coming from other cell
Scarecrow: “Buddy, don't cry, I am sure we can find something…….”
Suddenly, sounds stopped
And then, “Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha”
Scarecrow: “STOP IT. I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE. STOP IT. GUARDS TAKE ME AWAY. I CAN TAKE IT ANYMORE. I WILL GO CRAZY”
Meanwhile in Gotham City-
In Wayne mansion-
Lucius Fox: “What did you say your name?”
Robin: “John Blake, I prefer to call myself, Robin”
Lucius Fox: “Do you know everything?”
Robin: “Yes. This is the message Bruce Wayne gave me”
Lucius Fox: “Oh! Are you sure that you want to do this specially after seeing the outcome Bruce Wayne had to endure. Look at him in the end loosing everything in the process even his life”
Robin: “ Batman can be anyone, it is a sign to protect the City so Bruce Wayne may have died but Batman didn't and neither did his legacy. It was Bruce's wish that I took the mantle so I have to respect that and crime isn't slowing down either in Gotham City”
Lucius Fox: “You need training though. If Bruce Wayne was alive then he would have trained you but since he isn't, I know someone who can”
Robin: “Who is it?”
Lucius Fox: “He is known as Richard Dragon. He is the best MMA fighter in this planet. He is a friend”
Robin: “Let's do it then what are we waiting for?”
Couple of days later-
Richard: “Did you ever fight professionally?”
Robin: “Nope. Just in the neighborhood. I grew up in the tough neighborhood”
Richard: “Are you interested in octagon? Because whatever I saw from you till now is very impressive. Believe me I don't ever say that. I have some old contact there”
Robin: “Thanks. But I am not interested”
Suddenly, there's some angry noise
Richard ran away towards the source
Robin followed him.
Two police captured one kid but the kid was fighting back and giving his everything.
Richard: “Wait! Guys, I know this kid. He trains under me. What happened?”
Police: “This is a very troubled kid. That jewelry storekeeper informed us that he was stealing from them”
Richard: “Okay, take it easy, guys, he is just a kid. Let me handle it”
Police: “Mr Richard, you are a good man, we are big fan of you so we are trusting your word on this kid but that kid is anything but trouble. This is not even his first time. We are letting him go because of you, Mr Richard. Watch out. I wouldn't trust that kid”
Richard: “Thanks, guys, I have got it from here”
Robin: “What's the story with him?
Richard: “Someone from mob killed his parents and left him to rot for himself. I found him and trying to teach the good stuff. But clearly it's not working. I wish if he could identify with someone. A role model”
Robin: “Let me try”
“So you are good at causing chaos, what are the things you good at?”
Boy: “Who are you?”
Robin: “My name is Dick Grayson and I understand what is going on with you. I know you are angry all the time and you have this rage inside you and it's trying to come out and trying to destroy everything”
Boy: “Really, you can tell. How?”
Robin: “I know what it's like to grow up in a rough neighborhood without any parents”
Boy: “Your parents were also killed?”
Robin: “Nope. I was never that lucky to begin with. I never knew my parents. What is your name by the way?”
Boy said with a smile, “Jason Todd. And who are you?”
Robin: “Dick Grayson is my current name. Don't tell anyone”
Jason said with a smile, “I won't”
In the meanwhile in Arkham Asylum-
Alarm bells are ringing.
“Someone is killed by the Joker”
“And one guard's uniform is missing and along with Joker”
Commissioner Gordon came and investigated.
Suddenly, his mobile phone was ringing.
Commissioner Gordon annoyingly said, “Who is calling me now in this busy hour"
And he heard a laughing noise in other side
“Ha, ha, ha,………..”
Commissioner Gordon: “Joker”
Joker: “Commissioner Gordon. My favourite commissioner. Oh! I missed you so much. Ha, ha, ha”
Commissioner Gordon: “What do you want? We will catch you soon”
Joker: “I have no doubt about that. Ha, ha. Ha. I just want to know where is Batman?”
Commissioner Gordon: “I don't have time for this. Batman is dead”
Joker: “No. He isn't. Ha. Ha, ha. Ha”
Commissioner Gordon: “Stop this insanity Joker and give yourself up”
Joker: “Oh! My dear commissioner. Not so easily. Tell Batman that I am coming for him and you also as you didn't help me. Ha, ha. Ha, ha, ha”
Connection got disconnected
Commissioner Gordon said, “Did you find the link?”
Commissioner Gordon: “Okay, Joker. We have got you now. No more asylum. This time I will make sure that you will never ever see the daylight again”
Police: “Commissioner. Commissioner”
Commissioner Gordon: “What is it?”
Police: “Commissioner, it's coming from your house”
Commissioner Gordon: “WHAT? Oh! No! My daughter. Barbara”
When he reached his house.
He saw a card of Joker with a lot of ‘Ha, ha, ha' written on it. And Barbara was missing.
He heard a laughing noise and he ran towards the sound and found his wife's face was damaged but she was laughing constantly.
Commissioner Gordon said with tremendous shock, “OH! MY DEAR! WHAT DID THAT MONSTER DO WITH YOU?”
Later in Gotham morgue-
“Sorry, commissioner but we didn't have any drug for her. She was dead even before we tried to do something. I am very sorry”
Commissioner Gordon: “No. You did your job. This is my fault. I should have been more careful since Batman is gone. I can't even imagine what Joker is doing with her. Oh! My God! I can't think”
“Again I am very sorry. But commissioner, we analysed the drug we found from your wife's blood. It's some kind of gas mixed with scarecrow's fear gas”
Commissioner Gordon: “Scarecrow. I should have known”
Commissioner Gordon was beating the hell out of Scarecrow and asked, “Where is Joker? What he will do with Barbara. Tell me or I will kill you”
Scarecrow said with tremendous pain, “Believe me I don't know anything. He was making me crazy. I asked him to stop. He said that he wanted to know my fear gas formula. I told him. That's what I know. Believe me that's the only thing I know. I am scared of Joker too. I don't want to be anywhere near to him. Believe me I don't know anything beyond this”
Suddenly a police officer came and said, “Commissioner, there's some message from Joker”
He turned on the TV and it seemed Joker hijacked one major Gotham news station and killing people for fun and laughing and saying, “Batman, batty, batty, batty, my favourite knight, come out and play. We all know that you aren't dead. Batty, batty, batty, come out and play or I will kill one by one” in saying this he shot down the news anchor and presenter and was laughing laudly, “Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha”
Commissioner Gordon said, “Everyone let's go immediately, with our full force let's gherao the whole building”
Robin saw everything
Lucius Fox said, “You aren't properly trained yet for this”
Robin: “Look what Joker is doing. Batman should have killed him in the first time”
Lucius Fox: “Remember, Batman didn't want to do that because that's exactly what Joker wanted”
Robin: “And look at him now”
When Robin entered the newsroom, he saw everyone was laughing laudly and every one of their face was damaged.
Suddenly, he was gassed from the behind by Joker and said, “Hmmm, another Batman wannabe. Ha. Ha, ha, ha”
Robin jumped on Joker and kicked his mouth and two of his teeth were broken. Blood was coming out from Joker's mouths but still he was laughing and saying, “Ha. Ha, ha, ha. Face mask good one. Ha, ha but I was expecting Batman not batboy. Ha, ha” in saying this he brought out a detonator and said, “Good bye. Batboy. Ha, ha”
Robin jumped out of the window and the whole room was destroyed by the explosion.
Robin was injured from the blast. He was walking slowly through the Gotham slum and then tried to contact Lucius Fox but became senseless.
Just before he lost his conscience. He saw someone was coming towards him.
When he woke up. He saw Jason was sitting worried.
Robin said, “How did you find me?”
Jason said, “I live here. I was trying to steal something in night. But instead I found you. Your Mask is damaged, Robin or should I say Dick Grayson. Don't worry I won't tell anyone”
Robin: “Give me that mask”
Jason said, “But I won't tell anyone”
Robin: “I know I just have to contact someone. There's a microphone”
Jason: “Wow! Such a cool tech! Very Batman like. Wait! ARE YOU WORKING WITH BATMAN? DO YOU KNOW BATMAN? IS HE ALIVE?”
Robin: “Hold on kid. No. I am not working with him. Batman is dead”
A few minutes later, Lucius Fox came and picked up Robin into the car and said, “I told you so”
And then looking at the kid, he asked, “Who is this kid? Wait, did he know about your secret? Wow! You managed to screw up so many angles. I don't know what Bruce saw in you”
Robin: “Thanks for the vote of confidence. I know him. His name is Jason Todd”
Fox: “Can we trust him?”
Looking at the face of Jason Todd, Robin said, “Yes. Not only we can trust him, he is coming with us”
In Wayne mansion-
Jason: “Wait! Bruce Wayne is Batman. I can't believe it. Impossible”
Fox: “I am already not feeling good about this”
Robin: “Look I understand his situation. That kid is at the brink of his life. A little push and he could go dark. He needs to channel his anger correctly and I am going to help him on that”
Fox: “So now what? He is too going with you to fight crime. Wonderful. Now I have to deal with two amateurs”
Robin: “Well. Not right away but after a lot of training definitely. As you said before that we need more training and better suits and Batman's gadget. It was a mistake going against Joker like that and since he added some stuff on his own. Why not we do the same?”
Jason: “Hooray. We are Superheroes”
Fox: “I am already regretting this”
When Commissioner Gordon entered his house, he was struck from behind and he woke up, he found himself in a dark room with Joker.
Commissioner Gordon said with tremendous anger, “Where is Barbara? What did you do with her? You monster, you didn't kill her, did you?”
Joker: “Relax commissioner, she is alright, just tell me where is Batman and I will let her go”
Commissioner Gordon said, “Didn't you hear, Batman is dead. Okay. He died saving this city from a nuclear bomb”
Joker: “Ha. Ha, ha. Ha, ha. Now that's the official story but did they find any of his body parts?”
Commissioner Gordon: “You Stupid, crazy idiot, we are talking about Atom bomb here. There won't be any body parts. Batman is dead”
Joker: “Ha, ha. Ha. I know very well our cape Crusader friend. Batman don't do anything without any plan. So where is he hiding?”
Commissioner Gordon: “I don't know. Please, believe me. Please. Torture me all you want but please let my daughter go. Please. Joker if you have any humanity left, please let her go. Please”
Joker: “Oh! You think I am such monster. You hurt me commissioner. See I am exactly what society wants me to be. Do you think you and I are so different? Since it seems like Batman is really dead then let me rather concentrate on you. Let me show you that anyone can be like me if situation pushed him. Welcome to your new life commissioner Gordon. Enjoy the view from 360° angle. Ha, ha, ha, ha”
Commissioner Gordon shouted with tremendous shock and anger and pain, “What did you do with my Barbara? You monster. I will kill you if I ever get out of here”
THERE WAS EVERYWHERE NUDE TORTURING VIDEOS OF BARBARA GORDON
Joker: “Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha”
Bruce Wayne got a letter
Selena Kyle said, “Bruce someone sent a letter from Gotham. Who knows that you exist?”
Bruce Wayne got up quickly and read the letter, “Hey, batty, how long are you going to hide behind in France? You took early retirement. But Gotham didn't. Guess what your honest commissioner friend did? He told me about your whereabouts? Ha. Ha, ha. Looks like commissioner Gordon has lost his mind as well. As they say bad apple corrupt other apples. Ha, ha, ha, ha. Can't wait to meet you. Ha, ha, ha, ha”
Bruce Wayne said, “We can't stay here anymore. Taking retirement was the biggest mistake I made. Now everything is chaos in Gotham because of me. Batman can't take retirement”
Selena Kyle said, “Don't say such thing. You needed it more than anything”
Bruce Wayne: “Now the break is over and I won't make that same mistake again”
Selena Kyle said, “I understand, I am going to help you, Bruce”
And they were preparing to kiss
Suddenly, the house was rained with bullet and they heard a familiar voice, “Ha, ha. Ha, ha”
Bruce and Selena escaped from the underground tunnels from that old European castle”
When Bruce got up to a safe place, he realised that Selena was shot.
Bruce said, “Oh! No. Don't leave me. Selena. I need you”
Selena said, “Don't worry about it, Bruce, I am only holding you back, I made the Batman weak. Bullet has hit my kidney. I have no chance to survive now. I am releasing you from this, Bruce. Gotham needs you. Gotham needs his Batman more than it's Bruce Wayne”
Joker said with anger and disappointment, “He again managed to survive. But Bruce Wayne is Batman which means only one place he can go Wayne mansion”
In the Wayne mansion-
All the alarm bells were ringing
Fox, Dick and Jason saw Joker was laughing looking at the CCTV cameras before he destroyed each of them.
Jason said, “Now is the time to set the things straight. I will punish this psychopathic Maniac.”
Dick said, “No, we won't do any such thing. Remember last time we went without any plan. First of all, this is not Joker's style which means he is really desperate now. Let him make a mistake and we are going to capture him”
In the meantime-
Joker: “Brucy, Brucy, Brucy, look what you did, you not only left yourself vulnerable but you lost your advantage as well. I know now who are you? Ha, ha, ha, ha”
Dick turned off the electricity of the building
Joker was roaming around aimlessly and laughing and talking his usual shit.
Suddenly, Dick turned on the headlights of the building which blindsided Joker and Dick knocked him out one punch.
When Joker woke up he saw himself in some cell.
Dick Grayson came and said, “Your game is up. I heard what you did with Commissioner Gordon. He is in Arkham Asylum going through some heavy treatment and is daughter is currently in ICU because of your inhuman torture. We are sending you to California. You are going to have capital punishment since Gotham doesn't have death penalty. I am going to be your guard. Believe me you have no chance of escape”
Joker didn't say anything just clapped
Dick Grayson said with a lot of sarcasm, “Yeah, clap now. But you won't be doing that for very long”
Dick Grayson came to Jason and told him, “Don't go close to the cell, he is master manipulator, don't give him any opportunities, I am going to see how Commissioner Gordon and his daughter are doing. I will be back very soon. I am trusting you with these. Don't let me down”
But Jason being Jason, he does not listen anyone and he never did anyway. So he was very curious about Joker so he went to the cell to check him out.
He said to Joker, “So you are the joker, huh! You don't look scary to me. I never feared any clown infact I kicked their asses”
Joker said, “Didn't your babysitter ask you not to come to me?”
Jason said, “He isn't my babysitter. I am not scared of you”.
Joker said, “Good for you. Kid. I like you. I like your courage”
Jason said, “He also told me that you are a master manipulator and that you will try to manipulate me”
Joker said, “He said that, didn't he? Look I am not going to do any such thing with you. I am not going to laugh either. Do you know what is the difference between you hero type and us villain type. Nothing much. We are the same. Except we keep you from becoming us as you can then channel your aggression fighting against us. So see we are helping you becoming sane. So kid let me give you one last lecture before they took me away forever. Why are you staying here? Why can't you live like a normal people. Do you know why because you are already damaged from the very beginning just like us. If you try to lead a normal life. You will end up becoming me. Let's take an example of Bruce Wayne the Batman. Why did he need to become Batman? He could have lead a very normal life like just another rich guy but no, he had to become this Batman because otherwise he would have become me. That's also the reason even after so many crimes Batman didn't want to kill me because he feared then he will become me. So what does that tell you about your hero type?”
Jason: “Yeah, you are not trying to manipulate me. Listen clown, I grew up in a terrible rough neighborhood. I am not some snowflake that you will manipulate and I am going to be one. I am not Batman and I don't think I will ever become one either. I would have killed you in the first place if I was in Batman's place. I had no problem with sleeping after that as well. People like you don't deserve to be alive and there is nothing complicated about this.”
Joker: “You are right. I tried to manipulate you but it didn't work. I have to say that you are a very clever type. Probably even more than Batman”
Jason: “Yeah right. Now you are just boring me”
Dick came back and said to Joker, “Yeah, police is coming, you are getting very close to your death”
Joker: “Ha, ha, ha”
When Joker was going to the police van, he tried to get a gun from one last time from a fellow police officer but Dick Grayson floored him with one punch. Joker was suddenly laughing and said, “I am human bomb, I have one bomb inside my belly, and the detonator is my mouth under my tongue. If anyone of you try to touch me, I am going to bomb all of us”
Dick said, “He is bluffing”
Fox said, “Nope, he isn't. There's really a bomb under his belly. Look through this”
Dick said to Joker, “Are you really going to try that? Because I don't think you are capable of blowing yourself up. You are only capable of killing others”
Joker said with a smile, “Question is- are you going to take a chance on that or not? This is a long range bomb which means there's going to be a lot of civilian casualty, ha, ha, ha, ha”
Suddenly, Jason brought a gun and tried to shoot him and looking at that, Dick tried to stop him.
Joker bit one of the police's ear and jumped out of the van and was running away and suddenly a black van came out of nowhere. And said to Joker, “Came on, get on it. I have been sent by the Falcone family as you requested”
Joker got on it.
After a while, he realised that driver wasn't taking him to Falcone family.
Joker said, “Well played, Bruce Wayne or should I say Batman?”
Bruce took the mask off and said, “Finally we meet face to face. You wanted me and now I am here. What do you want to do now?
Joker said, “I just wanted to do this” in saying he turned on the detonator and the van was exploded.
Joker's body was destroyed completely and before he died for the final time, he realised that was just a hologram of Bruce Wayne not real
Joker died in trying to smile
Fox said to Bruce, “Why did you do this?”
Bruce Wayne said, “Because he wanted this. I just gave what he wanted. I didn't get him earlier when I figured him later, I realised what I needed to do. That's when I decided use my hologram with a remote control car. I knew Jason could not help himself. Whatever I saw of him, I can tell that he is probably more damaged than me. I need to handle him very carefully. It's not going to be easy to decipher him from Joker's manipulation”
Dick Grayson heard everything and said, “You knew about all of this. You came here before Joker????!!! Yet you didn't do anything. I am sorry, I don't understand that”
Bruce Wayne said, “You don't have to be. It's very messed up shit. Not everyone has to go through that”
Dick Grayson said, “You probably right, but since I don't understand your method, I no longer have to work with you. I am getting the hell out of here”
Bruce Wayne said, “Are you sure about that because you have lots to learn yet?”
Dick Grayson said, “Yeah, I am sure. Jason, will you come with me?”
Jason couldn't say anything
Dick Grayson said, “You don't have to say anything, I understood” in saying this he left
One month later-
Commissioner Gordon was released from Arkham Asylum.
Batman met him and said, “Friend, you did everything for me. Now let me do something for your daughter”.
Commissioner Gordon said, “Can you help her, Batman, she is completely damaged and broken, I don't think she will ever be able to function in normal society”
Batman said, “Now, let me handle that. Normal conventional medical treatment won't work with her. I know certain things that could be very helpful to her but it's going to be hard and it will take some time but I believe I can help her make again a strong independent confident Woman. But she has to stay with us with your permission of course”
Commissioner Gordon said, “Please help her Batman, please help her. Do whatever you need to do but please make her full again”
Batman said, “I promise that she will again be normal but she has to use her dark side properly. I believe I can help her with that”
Commissioner Gordon said, “Thank you so much Batman”
End not really?
This is the beginning of Batgirl, Nightwing and Red hood.
