Challenging Problems before Science but not for Omnipotent Super-conscious Spirituality/God

Challenging Problems before Science but not for Omnipotent Super-conscious Spirituality/ god:

Spiritual Equanimity:
Swami Vivekananda talked about spiritual communism. Meaning every entity is Shiva (the god, the lord) and is/ are equal. He served Humanity with "Shivo Bhutva-Shivam Yajet" hypothesis into practise. However, at materialistic and rationalistic level it is not at all possible, as every entity is unique and even every flake is not alike. Every entity, specie and every personality is distinct and different. Every entity has different competencies, skills, and attributes. No science terminology has yet proved that all entities are equal accept at the Quark Level. In the practical world also it has been never made possible. All religions, all countries tried but success is coming. I believe Success will be thereas all are working relentlessly to bring this Equanimity.

Utopian Human Capitalism Concept into Practise:
I mean all countries are trying to make their economy perfect by generating jobs, keeping citizens and customers happy, utilizing every human talent, utilising creativity and abilities of every entity, and sustain the human development and growth within all the limitations of the environmental and other constraints.

Putting Human Being Physically on the other planets/ world:
Even Vishmamitra Rishi (The Spiritual Saint and Scientist) tried it. Challenged the creator. However he dropped the idea once the King Trishanku was accepted by Lord Indra to enter into heaven.

Perpetual Motioned Machine of first kind, i.e. a machine that keeps in motion and runs forever. According to few spiritual scripts this Universe and Multi-verse is put into a perpetual cycle of coming into being, exist and then go into oblivion again come into being,.............thus cycle goes on. Even GOD has a long form. According to Swami Chinmayananda GOD stands for "G= Generator, who makes us born, O=Organizer, who takes care of us to live this life, D=Destroyer, who causes the death". Thus, this Universal machinery and Multi-verse Machinery is perpetual motion of first kind.

Karmavipak Hypothesis:
Karma = Deeds = Actions, Vipak means equipped with Reverse Feedback and Counter strike mechanism. This is the hypothesis which predicts that what ever one does s/he faces the consequences of that. Ethically perfect/ positive deeds will have positive consequences and negative will have negative. No scientific system in this world could bring such a perfect system where in practical sense all are treated equal before the law. All systems failed. However, this hypothesis is intact and people say God put everybody to justice. God has an Accountant who keeps the record better than any computer in this world and it works perfectly well. Thus, according to Karmavipak Hypothesis, in short if we/you throw flowers on others, they will throw flowers on us/you. If you tease or harass some one else same will happen to you.

Proving Existence of other worlds:
Go to the Bhagat Puran, you will find lot of evidence, that, to meet Shri Krishna, people of Heaven the Gods used come. Even there is an evidence that I am going to put in English. It is in Sanskrit and there is Hindi translation as well.
(Hindu Mythological Evidence): The Bhagat Puran Story:
Lord Shrikrishna was once sitting in his palace. In the night itself he warned his Guards, “Nobody, even my brother Balram, even my father Vasudev, even my mother Devki, even my wife be allowed to enter in, otherwise you will face ……”.
Guards were cool.
Suddenly there was movement in the space and before the guards could know there started some sounds inside the Hall.
Suddenly in the dawn Brahmadev, the main god of our Universe came rather appeared at the gate. He ordered the guards to let him in.
However, the guard said, “No.”
Again the Lord Brahmadev warned him, then he turned to other guard but he also refused.
Then Brahmadev literally lifted both of them and by putting them aside went inside the Hall. Immidietly, he shouted at Lord Shrikrishna, “You do not respect the Lord of this Universe….”
Lord Shrikrishna said, “Why are you late? You were called here yesterday?”
Still Brahmadev was adamant. Then Lord said, “Come and sit at the fourth seat over there”.
Suddenly Brahmadev saw there were many people over there. He sat besides a person having three heads on one side and five heads on other.
He asked Shrikrishna, “Who are these people?” Shrikrishna said, “Brahmadev of other nearest Universes.” (Thus he supported the existence of multi-billion Universes/ Multi-verses. )
Then Brahmadev at once asked to Lord Shrikrishna, “Then, Who are you?”
Everyone in the hall said, “The lord of Infinite Universes, Lord Shrikrishna”.(Hindi- Anant koti Brahmandnayk Shrikrishna bhagawan ji ki jai).
Brahmadev learnt his lesson and touched the feet of Lord Shrikrishna.
Then he saw all around there were other Brahmadev- with starting from one head to hundred heads- were there. That was meeting of 100 Brahmadev.
Lord said, "The last meeting was held before four headed Brahmadev was even borne to discuss problems in their respective universes".
Hence, later Lord Shrikrishna said, "Only enlightened souls i.e. people who attain Nirvana, Mukti, Moksha, Salvation are not borned (take birth) otherwise they take birth somewhere in the Multiverses, including 8.4 million births(Species) on this earth".

Recently, Science has started thinking over this matter of Multiverses in the form of multiple billion Galaxies.

There are at least thousand such stories with literature evidences, we’ll see later, even if you show interest or not, I am going to contribute, contribute, contribute.

I have put this story to let next generation know these facts. This story is not on World Wide Web yet. Hence this effort.

Absolute Non-Violence (Ahinsa):
According to Saint Dnyaneshwar (Gyaneshwar) an enlightened soul walks on the earth in such a delicacy that he cannot kill even a single specie while respiration, while walking and even for moment to moment everyday living.
There are fine jokes for others.
Once Lokmanya Balgangadhar Tilak was asked how to implement no-violence in life because according to science you kill bacteria while walking on the earth. He replied, “Put your feet on your head and then walk.”
However, soon, Mahatma Gandhiji came out with a practical way of actual implementation of Ahimsa – Non Violence in everyday life.
However, even Gandhiji failed and others failed as they could not stop Second World War.
In Jainism and Buddhism also there are fantastic practices to implement Non-Violence.
Recently, in fact my Sadguru Swami Madhavnath alias Mr. Madhav Vishnu Wakade of Nath Samprasay, Pune, once said, “The way Saint Gyaneshwar has described Non-Violence, if even once Lord Buddha listens to it, He will be very happy. That little boy describes this non-violence in such a way that you forget the other ways.”
However, if the living legends like Gandhiji cannot stop the WWII i.e. Second World War then let us forget others. Absolute non-violence has become idealism for humanity since time unknown. Already, billions are killed and still we are wasting our time/s in wars and fighting instead of using that same Human Capital for going to Moon, Mars, and beyond. In fact this earth itself can become Heaven if we utilise the Human Capital, the real Capitalism it would be.
Once, Swami Vivekanada said, “If human beings had used its full potentials with all their might then Human beings would have gone farther than what we/ they are today.”
Yes, it’s a fact; we go forward one step by non-violence and come back hundred steps by violence.
We are wasting our resources in foolish competitions, wars, silencing other’s voice, making mockery of others, not following ethics and and not practising truthfulness.
There must be openness in thoughts and expression and there must be total human efforts for all the effort which are going to help all human beings. For Example, the organisations who follow Six Sigma, if there are more than three faults then they loose their Six-Sigma level. Hence, there must be Six-Sigma applied to human efforts towards non-violence, otherwise, one day there will come an asteroid or some space-material and will destroy earth our existence will be either a history there will be no-one to know it. Already, Humanity has many enemies on earth and in space, if we fight among each others then, we are the biggest fools more fooooliiiish than other species.

Any how, at least Non-Violence is accepted as one of the strongest and the best way to sustain, that is enough contribution of Mahatma Gandhiji.

Life is short let us give it for great, greater to the greatest cause.

China is way ahead in implentation than rest of the world by NOW

Chinese Vision, Original Chinese Plan and Innovative Chinese Action.
Feedback and Correction, Again better Plan and Implementation is what China is.
I have seen my Chinese friends in Institutes and Industries.
Professors put 12 hours of work irrespective of their social status. Publish at least 6 Research Papers every year. Guide 8 PhD in the span of 4 years with Result. PhD Projects are implemented into Industry and Government take feed back on it.
In Industry, Theory is Practical. Ethics and Truthfulness is very common.
Chinese Pull Chinese towards Forward direction unlike other world, where others pull back a person going forward.
Once my Mechanical Engineer friend had a project he did not have funds, other Chinese Electrical Engineers, civil Engineers put money on his project and asked him to return when he get and of course at 0% interest. My Mechanical Engineer friend involved at least 10 more Chinese, just to know openly how the Project is done. Next time he had 10 competitors, but together they pulled 20 projects from various nations. Thus geometrically they grew.
In fact the way they manufacture and push their products around the world is also a harmony among Chinese.
Government knows survival of the fittest strategy of the world.
China built Three Gorgeous Dam. They put the project and World Bank and others came forward with Loans. Where as in India we have Ganga-Cauvery Plan still pending. In India we have good planners but not implementers, where as in China they have implementing mechanism as well. Thus we also must have better implementing strategies. In fact we are not utilizing our full potentials including our talented human resources.
Hope all one billion citizens will have one plan, one action, feedback and correction mechanism in future.
Let all the living legends like Mr. Tata, Dr. A.P. J. Abdul Kalam, Mr. Narayan Murthy, My Parents, Your Parents, and other Seniors see the Developed Nation called India in 2020 A.D. If China can do with so much hardship with 6 months in Snow then why cannot in India we do with 12 months good climate, I don’t know.
Hope for the best. Let us take lesson from China and Western Developed Countries.
China is taken more seriously than other big nations in the world by Western Super Powers.
On Indian side, already Swami Viveknanda had visualised and said, “We’ll / India will give lessons of Vedanta to the West and will take lessons of Technology from them.”
However, 100 years since that Vision and we did not take our lesson 100%.
Lastly, again let us hope for the best.

If your wisdom is strong nobody can trouble you and nothing can disturb you

Once, Mr. Joyful, had a meeting with Enlightenment, suddenly Mr. Joyful asked him, “How are you?”
Enlightenment said, “I am always fine.”
“Come on in this hectic life and in this unfair world, how can one be always fine?” Mr. Joyful. "There are vultures all over world and donkeys occupying important places at important organizations, how can I be happy? At office- boss is always right, at home- egoistic persons have their say, at friends- you have duping personalities, at shops- you have looters, at children's- you have always take backseat attitude, at all the places- common man like me is exploited, over powered and dumped. How can I remain happy, leave aside always fine?"
Enlightenment said, “Come on Joy, these are all part of human life, this is what I learned from seniors. We must have 'Practical Wisdom'. If your wisdom is strong nobody can perturb you individually or disturb you without your prior consent, and even shake you 'In and Out' without using some unfair means”.
Mr. Joyful said, “Great said, but then why there is so much disturbance in the world?” Enlightenment said, “Where is it? Man, how can just handful of people disturb the whole nation (called India) of one billion? Not possible. One more reason is, media makes news of bad happenings only and not good happenings. That is why you feel like that. Otherwise look around you, there are 99.9999999% good people. If there is disturbance, it is from those few people.” Mr. Joyful, “What is the solution?”
Enlightenment said, “Okay, if there is suit then there is fire agreed, but, even if it is there, then we must do the same thing what Mumbai people did at the time of July 26, 2005 during Mumbai Flood, ‘Fight with Unity’. Similarly, in unethical practices, Mumbai's good people have shown 'no-co-operation to misbehaving few people'. Thus, either you have to co-operate or opt for no-co-operation, a certain peaceful solution. Co-operate in ethical task and non-co-operation in un-ethical work.”
“Great Enlightenment, Great”, said Mr. Joyful.
Enlightenment interrupted him and said, “Joy, come to the point, seniors always say, it is 'the way you live' is more important than compelling circumstance. This living life moment to moment decides your ‘always happiness’. Take example of a person who is living a devoted and disciplined life. He can live more composed and happy life than a person living a life more haphazardly and unethically. This is practical wisdom. There is a reason behind this. What seniors have experienced that what ever one does at every moment ultimately boomerangs to him/ her. It could be action/s, feeling/s, reaction/s or even our thoughts. All these entities have a reverse feedback, and striking back mechanism. Hence, if you are 'in and out' calm, quite, peaceful and happy, and trying to make others so, then that is what will come back/ boomerang to you. In one sentence, you throw flowers on others they will throw flowers at you. If you deal yourself with godly behavior, your inner self will deal you likewise.”
Before leaving Mr. Joyful asked, “Where did you get these lessons Enlightenment?”
Enlightenment said, “Bhagavad Geeta, Bible, Kuran, Gurugranthsahib, Adigranth, Thiruvaluwar, and guidance of spiritual greats and scripts, seniors, and elders.”
After taking a ‘Practical Wisdom’ lesson from Enlightenment Mr. Joyful went and lived a happy life.
The lesson in gist was, “If your wisdom is strong nobody can trouble you and nothing can disturb you".

How to know yourself well by SWOT Analysis of moment to moment?

If a person wants to know about self, in and out, then how could, s/he do that? It was a genuine question. The answer is simple, do your own Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunity and Threate(SWOT) Analysis. Do it yourself, and take help from keeth and kins or take help from expert if you are desperate. The reason behind this exercise is that, if one concentrated too much on everyday aspects of life and not stressed on Developmental aspects then s/he becomes myopic. These people know themselves but not that much. There awareness about them is negligible.Hence if one tries to know oneself in various phases and events of life then one can understand one-self very well. Few leaders do / did this kind of Review/s. For example the great Indian philosopher Revered Mr. J. Krishnamurthi used to say 'living life moment to moment' requires high amount of self-awareness and understanding and that is a prior requirement in emotional intelligence and even in spiritual advancement. Even, Revered Zen Gurus, Revered Vipasyana Guru, Revered Transcendental Meditation Gurus, tell to look at yourself as third person by detaching yourself from your own self. The path of progress start with this own awareness. If you want to progress more then try to take part in as many ethical activities as you can. E.g. Take part in Debate, Quiz, lot of Competitions, Group Tasks in the House/ with Relatives/ with Friends/in Social Activities, Ganesh Festivals, Diwali, Dandiya/ Navratri, Durga Puja and Individual Assignments, and try in different domains/ areas/ interests, as well. This you do for some time till you know what and how exactly you will face the Real World. After knowing your area of interest. Brain Calming and Meditation can help lot of people. In fact any spiritual activity can be a help. Taking part in everyday household activity like helping mother in cooking, going for grocery/ vegetables, cleanliness of house, gardening, washing cloths, watching movie with friends/ relatives, studying together, and other social activities also can helps you a lot. This exposure gives oneself to analyze himself at different situations and places and environments, thus making him multi-faceted personalities in their life.
If a person knows himself well in the student age itself then his life can turn into a well balanced journey. However, there is no time which could be prescribed to know oneself.
Hence, why not today?
Come on Life is short let us live it for great cause.
All the best.

Increasing Traffic on the blog: Making Blog Popular : Some Tips and Tricks

Increasing Traffic on the blog: Making Blog Popular : Some Tips and Tricks
I have analyzed and/ or interviewed few popular bloggers and came out with some highlighting aspects on how to make your blog popular.

Five Major Methods/ Ways:
This I discussed with my collegue Prof. Ray Titus, he has the blog: What we came to the conclusion are put in five points below:
1. Content, Consistency and Focus,
People always find tips to make a blog/website popular and get a good traffic towards their website. One major tip to make a blog popular is content, content and content. Write a lot of contents in your blog. Write more regularly and you will get a good traffic from search engines. If you write once in a month or once in a week it will take longer to make blog/site popular. So keep writing more regularly and also write good quality content. Also check spelling of your content by spell checker in any editor before publishing your blog post. Don’t think for good traffic if you have only a few posts in your blog first increase number of post in your blog and then try to find how to make a blog popular and get good traffic.
2. Layout and Looks,
3. URL yes the title itself should be crisp and appealing
4. Continuous Research for to up date information and some interesting material to be placed on the blog.
5. Features and Key words that make blog appear on google: PageRanking is a function of Google that measures the quality of a website on a scale of 0 to10. Higher the Quality of your site Higher the Page Rank would be. To improve PageRank of your site or blog, you have to improve traffic towards your website/blog.
For that start exchanging links, Submit your blogs to blog directories and put comments on other's sites and leave your URL there. Your comment must be appropriate and related to content. Avoid comments like "Nice post.....", "Great..........", "Very Good........", "Excellent........". Try to comment as good as you can. Your comment must be descriptive.
Thus, Submit your blog to different blog directories in appropriate category. If you submit any blog to blog directories, always mention about the blog directory in your blog. If you do so visitors would come to know about that blog directory and blog directory would become popular. Also do one more thing, add a link to that directory into your blog. Because if directory would become famous your blog will also becomes more famous. More visitors click in the directory more visitors visit your blog.

There are some other great tips to make a blog popular. These tips increase visitors to your blog.

1. Try to submit/add your blog to blog directories or blog communities like
Many people says that submitting a blog into a blog directory is time wasting. Some says if submit a blog into blog directory then who will visit blog directory and see our blog. Most of the people uses search engines to find anything. But one more advantage to submit a blog into blog directory is link popularity if you submit a blog into blog directory then link popularity of your blog will increase and it will helps to increase page rank of your blog and your blog will become more popular and will get more traffic. So try to submit your blog to as many directories as you can.
2. Tell your friends & relatives about your blog.

12. Sign up to as many forums and social networks you can manage.
13. Get a feed burner account.
14. Then create your headline animator.
15. Post that widget (headline animator) on your profiles, forum and email signatures, etc. (make sure you don't break any forum rules or you're likely to get booted out.)
16. Post as many popular stuff as often as you can.
