This is wonderful thread rama di. As usual after going thru the posts many questions rippled in my mind.

- I firmly believe only praying/naming to god isn't enough to attain nirvana state. Personally, I give highest regards to purification of mind/soul and perform good deeds! I've seen many women like Bhabho around me who pray to god every morning, lit up diyaa but they always lack of basic humanity values and real essence of the religion.Confused.

- About temple magic : I'll believe in it if I visit temple by myself and authorities allow me to investigate entire inner structure of the temple. It isn't possible that every hour water drop. I'm sure they've developed some mechanical tool with fix timer to make it happen.

- If we take birth as a human after 1000births circle and it's rarest then why majority of mankind lacking of basic humanity values? Why there is so much greed/hatred/jealousy in this world? Why population of human increased all of a sudden after 1980's? I don't believe human birth is rarest of rarest. I always try to see all the species of this universe equally.

- I've observed very often in my mundane life : When homeless person ask for money, most people will neglect it by thinking they're doing natak... On the other hand when sermonizers with home ask for the money, most people open their wallets/purses/checkbooks. Why is it like that?Day Dreaming

1) chanting should be done with pure heart ami
i've seen some chanting  while talking in between
its of no use . its mere acting and  cheating yourself

2) it has nothing to do with mechanical tool
the specail stones chandrakala and suryakala absorb moisture and it falls exactly after every 20 mins, no one could explain it
you have to visit the temple

3) how many of us realize that  we are here for a purpose
how many of us are aware of self realisation

nowadays to be born as a human is a bigger punishment
show me one person who is leading a peaceful life

4) they like to be fooled again and againLOL

enjoyed answering

iam happy that SG has come forward to give today's TFTD


this thread is for the whole dabhily by dabhily
anyone who feels to give his/her part
is always welcome



Five (5) lessons to make you think about the way we treat people.

1 - First Important Lesson - Cleaning Lady.

During my second month of college, our professor
Gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student
and had breezed through the questions until I read 
the last one:

"What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"
Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the
cleaning woman several times. She was tall,
dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would I know her name? 

I handed in my paper, leaving the last question 
blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if
the last question would count toward our quiz grade.

"Absolutely," said the professor. "In your careers, 
you will meet many people. All are significant. They 
deserve your attention and care, even if all you do
is smile and say "hello."

I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her 
name was Dorothy.

2. - Second Important Lesson - Pickup in the Rain 

One night, at 11:30 p.m., an older African American
woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway
trying to endure a lashing rainstorm. Her car had
broken down and she desperately needed a ride. 
Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car. 
A young white man stopped to help her, generally
unheard of in those conflict-filled 1960s. The man
took her to safety, helped her get assistance, and 
put her into a taxicab.

She seemed to be in a big hurry, but wrote down his 
address and thanked him. Seven days went by and a
knock came on the man's door. To his surprise, a
giant console color TV was delivered to his home. A 
special note was attached..

It read: 
"Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway
the other night. The rain drenched not only my
clothes, but also my spirits. Then you came along. 
Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying 
husband's bedside just before he passed away... God
bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving
others."

Sincerely, 
Mrs. Nat King Cole.

3 - Third Important Lesson - Always remember those
who serve.

In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, 
a 10-year-old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and 
sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in 
front of him.

"How much is an ice cream sundae?" he asked.

"Fifty cents," replied the waitress. 

The little boy pulled is hand out of his pocket and 
studied the coins in it. 

"Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he inquired.

By now more people were waiting for a table and the 
waitress was growing impatient. 

"Thirty-five cents," she brusquely replied. 

The little boy again counted his coins.

"I'll have the plain ice cream," he said. 

The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on
the table and walked away. The boy finished the ice 
cream, paid the cashier and left. When the waitress
came back, she began to cry as she wiped down the 
table. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, 
were two nickels and five pennies.. 

You see, he couldn't have the sundae, because he had
to have enough left to leave her a tip. 

4 - Fourth Important Lesson. - The obstacle in Our Path. 

In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a
roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if 
anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the 
king's wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by 
and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the
King for not keeping the roads clear, but none did 
anything about getting the stone out of the way. 

Then a peasant came along carrying a load of 
vegetables. Upon approaching the boulder, the
peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the 
stone to the side of the road. After much pushing 
and straining, he finally succeeded. After the 
peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed
a purse lying in the road where the boulder had 
been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note 
from the King indicating that the gold was for the 
person who removed the boulder from the roadway. The
peasant learned what many of us never understand! 

Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve 
our condition.

5 - Fifth Important Lesson - Giving When it Counts...

Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a
hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz who 
was suffering from a rare & serious disease. Her only 
chance of recovery appeared to be a blood 
transfusion from her 5-year old brother, who had
miraculously survived the same disease and had 
developed the antibodies needed to combat the
illness. The doctor explained the situation to her 
little brother, and asked the little boy if he would
be willing to give his blood to his sister.

I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a 
deep breath and saying, "Yes I'll do it if it will 
save her." As the transfusion progressed, he lay in
bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did,
seeing the color returning to her cheek. Then his 
face grew pale and his smile faded. 

He looked up at the doctor and asked with a
trembling voice, "Will I start to die right away".

Being young, the little boy had misunderstood the 
doctor; he thought he was going to have to give his 
sister all of his blood in order to save her. 



Most importantly... "Work like you
don't need the money, love like you've never been
hurt, and dance like you do when nobody's watching."
