One afternoon after lunch as I was coming out from my friend’s home

in Saket in New Delhi noticed a very fine and famous monument ……..

Qutab Minar  ….a UNESCO World Heritage site .. …. 

association of brain memory suggest that a very dear friend

and a fine photo artist has a studio near by …….

so decided to call as I visit him once in a blue moon …….

he was delighted to hear me and asked me to come so visited him …..

reaching his office ……. looked at each other  for few moments ……

there were a TV crew to interview him

and

I also was pressed for time for a music concert in the evening ……..

asked his permission to leave so he asked …..

why did I visited him for such short time ?……

usually it will last long hours ……

so replied ….. for your DARSHAN …….

so he asked what is DARSHAN …….

replied him …… visual language of silence …..

Darśana (also Darśan or Darshan; Sanskrit: दर्शन) is a term meaning “sight”

In the sense “to see with reverence and devotion,”

and could refer either to a vision of the divine

or to being in the presence of a highly revered person.

“By doing darshan properly a devotee develops affection for God,

and

God develops affection for that devotee.”

Darshan is ultimately difficult to define,

since it is an event in consciousness—

an interaction in presence between devotee and God/guru;
or
between devotee and image or sculpture,

which focuses and calls out the consciousness of the devotee.

In either event, a heightening of consciousness or spirituality is the intended effect.

Kahahi Sunahi Bahu Vidhi Sab Santa

Since all creative languages comes out from silence ……

everyone has own choice and medium of expression and explanations…….

so have your own language …… it can be dance , vocal music , instrumental music , painting , poetry , writing , watching , talking , walking and any thing of our own choice …… all as prayer of divine ….. all with silence ……. all in totality …… all in oneness …… to understand this visual language ….. as

सत्यम शिवम सुंदरम =

 which means God is truth …… truth is God …… and God is beauty …….. the essence of visual language of silence 

love all.

power of Holy Spirit

“I do not know how to write nor can I,

unless

I see with the eyes of my soul

and

hear with the ears of my eternal spirit

and

feel in all the parts of my body

the power of the Holy Spirit.

” Mechthild of Magdeburg

(c.1260-c.1282/94)

Those who became complete

Those who became complete

English version by Kabir Helminski & Refik Algan
Original Language Turkish

Those who became complete
didn’t live this life in hypocrisy,
didn’t learn the meaning of things
by reading commentaries.

Reality is an ocean; the Law is a ship.
Many have never left the ship,
never jumped into the sea.

 They might have come to Worship
but they stopped at rituals.
They never knew or entered the Inside.

Those who think the Four Books
were meant to be talked about,
who have only read explanations
and never entered meaning,
are really in sin.

Yunus means “true friend”
for one whose journey has begun.
Until we transform our Names,
we haven’t found the Way.

 

Yunus Emre
Turkey (1238 – 1320) 
Muslim / Sufi

religion and science

Either people believe there is current

or

people do not believe there is current.

Knowing the current is religion ,

knowing the use of current is science,

Believing

and

not believing 

both are

philosophies.

atheist and theist

Atheist = A scientist with microscopic vision of logical intelligence = right eye with two-dimensional vision.

Theist = A scientist with macroscopic vision of emotional intelligence = left eye with two-dimensional vision.

yoga  or union of both eye’s vision fields brings third dimension of depth  also, with this vision correction one will graduate from  non believer and believer to knower  of God.
