Enhance Your Wisdom

Enhance Your Wisdom

Ignorance is bliss. What you do not know cannot hurt you. Not knowing something is often more comfortable than knowing it. All these quotes suggest that less you know, happier you are. However all great philosophers, scientists and successful people had knowledge and wisdom as a great asset. Whether you talk about Buddha, Mahavir, Christ or Mohammad, all had great wisdom. Kabir and Rahim are still remembered for their wisdom.

Knowledge is power and wisdom is respected. To live a successful life one need to take right decisions at every step of journey and wise decisions are outcome of thorough knowledge and deep wisdom. Formal education helps in enhancing knowledge but lifelong learning is needed for continuous enhancement of wisdom. It is not necessary that a wise person always earn more money but certainly he leads a happy and satisfactory life.

5 tips to continuously enhance your wisdom:

1. If you have 8 hours to chop a tree, spend first 6 hours in sharpening the axe. Same way if have to speak for 2 minutes, spend minimum 6 minutes in contemplating what would be the right words. Meditation & deep thinking are the best tools to enhance wisdom.

2. Education is not limited to school/college. Rather education is a continuous process. We must have thirst for learning till last breath of life. We should do reading and writing on continuous basis as they help in gaining clarity of thoughts.

3. Keep the company of enlightened people. Listen them, question them and understand them.

4. Nature is the best teacher. Every plant, every animal, every human being and every non-living thing can teach us if we are ready to be a student.

5. Every religion, every philosophy has something good to offer. Keep your all senses alert for learning.

Do Your Duty
June 9, 2015
Do Your Duty 41

The most difficult question in my life was and still is, who am I and what is my dharma (duty)? By dharma I do not mean here religion but duty. In life we have many roles and many relationships. So far my conclusion is honestly discharging the duty of each and every role and each and every relationship shall be our duty.

In life we play many roles; a child, a parent, a sibling, a spouse, a member of a community, society, religious group, a boss, a colleague, a subordinate, a citizen of nation and a member of the planet. Every role demands certain responsibilities and duties. Our dharma is to discharge those duties as diligently as possible. Some times it so happens that in a relationship, other person is not fulfilling his/her duty and due to that we may decide not to fulfill our duty as well. This may satisfy our ego for time being but won’t enrich our mind.

5 Tips to do your duty :
1. Make a list of your roles and related duties.
2. Do not worry about reward while doing your duty.
3. Do not expect from other person that he/she will do his/her duty.
4.Wisdom is needed to perform conflicting duties.
5.If it is impossible to fulfill your duty, be transparent with the other person.

Every person has his/her own world. The person might not be able to control anyone else but one has full control on his/her body, mind, heart and soul. By wisdom, power, money and fame, one can expand his/her circle of influence and can have indirect control or influence on many people around. To create wonderful world around us, we need to adopt 3 principles.

1. Love All:
Every religion/ philosophy teaches us about not harming anybody. Buddhism talks about compassion, Jainism-Ahimsa, Islam-Brotherhood, Christianity-Service and Hinduism-Worship. The quintessence of each religion is to love every living being. Every creature of the earth has equal right to live on planet and human being has more responsibility to love and protect them because he has been bestowed with intellect and wisdom.
2. Enhance Wisdom:
As per Hindu philosophy, ultimate aim of all living beings is to achieve MOKSHA. Only humans are capable of achieving it as the door of moksha can be opened through intellect. To create a wonderful world around us we should keep enhancing our wisdom by reading books and listening to enlightened souls. Wisdom helps to keep our thoughts streamlined, our words in control and to perform actions that are beneficial to all.
3. Do your Duty:
In life, we play many roles such as a child, parent, sibling, spouse, member of a community, society, religious group, boss, colleague, subordinate, citizen of nation and member of the planet. Every role demands certain responsibilities and duties. Our dharma is to discharge those duties as diligently as possible. Sometimes it so happens that in a relationship, other person is not fulfilling his/her duty and due to that we may decide not to fulfill our duty as well. This may satisfy our ego for time being but won’t enrich our mind.

Is Universalism another religion?

No it’s not another religion. It is quintessence of each and every religion. Foundation of every religion is love but over centuries, in the race of proving to be the best religion, all religions has developed ego. In order to prove supremacy, they have started criticizing others. If one wants to adopt universalism, one needs not to abandon his present religion. One needs to use the prime principle of LOVE in following his own religion. Universalism is complimentary to each and every religion. It will melt like sugar in a glass of milk.
