  THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION


Become Mahavir (the Emperor of Inner Virtues):

Lord Mahavir, was the 24th and the last Teerthankar (Prophet) of the Jain religion order. He was born around 2609 years ago. At the age of 30, he left his kingdom and became an ascetic. He did intense penance for 12 years and attained nirvana (Salvation/Enlightenment).

In those days, animal sacrifice was a common practice followed by Hindus under the Vedic rituals as oblation to God. As Lord Mahavir could not bear this onslaught of helpless creatures he started advocating NON-VIOLENCE. He preached that

- All creatures have equal rights to live
- All creatures bear the same pain when hurt, tortured or killed.
- All souls are alike without any distinction irrespective of whether
they are in animal body or in human body.
- No soul is superior or inferior.
- Every soul is omniscient and blissful.
- Every soul is independent and passes through different physical bodies
(animal, bird, human etc) during the course of its evolutionary journey
based on its karmas (deeds).
- Our behavior with others should be similar to the behavior we expect from others.

Lord Mahavira's simple and straight forward concept was “TO LIVE AND LET LIVE“. His vision was for complete harmony among all creatures in the world.

This concept of Live and Let Live is even more apt in the present time with dwindling human values. Let us all strive to live our lives based on this simple concept and spread happiness within and all around us and become MAHAVIR (the Emperor of Inner Virtues).

- Guru Sri Rameshji Jain

Manifestation of world

Date : 28 Sept 2007

  THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION
Matrimony is not merely to cut monotony or to pro-create many, but to bring harmony- Shri Ramesh Jain
  EXPERIANCE SHARING

"The world outside is nothing but a reflection of your inside. The outside is the effect and the cause is your inside. You won't find anything outside. Unfortunately our culture and society teaches us to look outside for happiness….which of course does not stay with us for long. Stop looking outside. True happiness is found within."- Mohit.



  Question and Answers

Q: Who has created this world and what is the purpose?A: The world is an automatic manifestation of Pure Consciousness. Pure Consciousness which is formless, omnipresent, omnipotent and eternal, goes through a process of modification within itself which brings about a change in it from subtle to grosser aspect. Different stages of this change has been identified with different names such as Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. They are also called as five basic elements and everything in the world is a combination of these five elements in various proportions.Everything in the world is destructible After destruction they disintegrate and merge back into their original source. The manifestation of world is not with any purpose but is out of a natural process of modification within Pure Consciousness similar to a modification of Ocean to water vapor, water vapor to gas, gas to clouds and from clouds back to water.

Meditation

Date : 19 Apr 2008

  THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION

Meditation is a state wherein the mind is calm, pure, positive, caring, loving, compassionate and friendly. This state acts as a bridge between inner self and external world. External world is a reflection of inner self. The purer the inner self better becomes the external world. Meditation purifies the inner self. Everyone must aim to achieve this state of meditation as early in life as possible and live happily thereafter.- Shri Ramesh Jain



  EXPERIANCE SHARING

Conversation between a saint and a foreigner There was a saint sitting quietly near the river. Seeing the saint sitting quietly, one foreigner tried to talk to him:

Foreigner What are you thinking Saint I am not thinking, I am sinking Foreigner Sinking in what Saint Sinking in the cause Foreigner Which cause Saint

The cause whose effect is this creation. That
cause is formless omnipresent eternal pure
Consciousness and I am meditating on that.


  Question and Answers

Q:How to establish in the state of meditation? What is the best technique, time and place of meditation? A: Ramana Maharshi said 'the best way to establish in meditation is through meditation itself'. Along with regular practice of meditation one should have positive approach to life, accept things as they are, make bare minimum negative reactions and be happy all the time as well as spread happiness all around.

Any technique which suits your nature is fine for meditation. You can try to meditate on breath, on a mantra, on an object or on any form of god, on empty space or just by witnessing thoughts. You can also meditate on your body, on your five senses, on the lotus in your heart or on shat chakras (kundalini yoga).

The best time to meditate is early morning (before sunrise) and late night (just before sleep). You can also meditate at other time whenever you are free. Try to meditate, for short spells (say for 1 or 2 minutes), at least 2/3 times during the day. You can choose any place to meditate which is free of disturbance and where you feel comfortable.

Mind and it's functions

Date : 29 Nov 2009

  THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION

The most fascinating and complex thing to evolve in the universe is the Mind. Mind is the energy of high intensity. It has the power to think, imagine, perceive and feel. It can make human beings enjoy their lives or make them suffer. It can cause pains and pleasures. It can create happiness and sorrowfulness. It has the power to become what it thinks. It has the power to create situations, objects and as well destroy them.Mind is the point where the omnipresent universal consciousness contracts and gets converted into three modifying consciousness viz, Consciousness, Sub-Consciousness and Unconsciousness. They are also referred to as Awakened, Dream and Deep Sleep State.

It is the nature of the mind that does not allow it to remain stable, calm or thoughtless for long. It does not require any effort to create stress, tension, conflict, anger, fear, negative attitude or impatience.

Mind has the capability of reversing itself and becoming positive, joyful, happy, loving, caring through a process of conscious effort.

Mind is also the main cause of bondage into the cycle of birth, death and rebirth. And the same Mind is the main source for liberation. If properly guided, handled and trained it can experience the joy of life irrespective of a situation, favorable or unfavorable.

    -Ramesh Jain


 Question and Answers

Q:What is the science of vibrations and how does mind get influenced by it?A: Whatever we think, feel and speak (good or evil) goes to the Cosmos as vibrations and these vibrations spread in the cosmos, influencing those people towards whom they have been directed. These vibrations make people respond favorably or unfavorably based on the signal the vibrations have generated.

Positive attitude towards others help generate positive vibrations in others minds, protecting us from unknown destructive forces. Negative attitude towards others generate destructive vibrations from other's minds causing immense damage to us mentally and materially. It also upsets the equilibrium state of mind and makes it more negative. One must shed negative attitude altogether for one's own benefit.

Mind over matter

Date : 15 August 2011

  THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION

Our mind has the power to rule over matter but generally we allow things to happen the other way round, we allow matter to rule over our mind. We allow a good looking thing to make our mind happy and bad looking thing to make our mind feel bad. We make favorable situation to make our mind feel happy and unfavorable one to make mind feel sad.

Our mind is an independent entity and has its own emotions. Unconsciously it sets its own condition about happiness and sadness based on external factors. Even though it has the power to change external conditions and be happy all the time (even in adverse conditions) yet we allow it to feel happy or sad based on situations, circumstances, things, objects and comments.

When our mind is happy it sends waves of happiness all around the universe and creates a connection with happy people and attracts them towards us. Similarly when it is sad it emanates waves of sadness and attracts everything which increases our sadness, pains and sorrow. This is how our mind influences external situations and circumstances in our life.



Our mind has the power to influences our body too. When the mind is happy it sends waves of happiness to every part and every cell of the body. And when it is sad it sends waves of sadness across all body parts and to every cell in the body. When in happiness every cell of the body functions to its optimum level with energy and vigor whereas in sadness they become depressed and weak. Some of these cells who cannot bear the depression die down or they commit suicide. Others who are weak either go mad or malfunction.



Cells which malfunction or go mad and do something other than what they were supposed to do, are the ones which cause disease. Even cancer cells are medically said to be normal cells but functioning abnormally. And when cluster of these cells come together, it is called tumor.



We need to be very careful when emanating emotions as they would influence on our external and internal conditions. Let situations or circumstances or adverse comments not bother you and not allow the mind to emanate negative emotions. Take a decision and condition your sub- conscious mind that you will be happy in all the situations of life irrespective of them being favorable or unfavorable. Such conviction will ensure happiness all the time. Even God has no power to make a person unhappy if the person has decided to be happy. God may have the power to create an unfavorable situation but to suffer or not to suffer is our choice.
- Guruji Sri Rameshji Jain

Multiple Universes

Date : 24 Oct 2009

  THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION

While you are reading this wisdom letter it is possible that a plane or a car has passed through you and yet you remained alive. Can you imagine planes, trains and cars passing through your house and you remain unaffected by them? Can you imagine another house located at the same place of your house and people sitting, eating, talking, moving and sleeping as we do in that house yet you remain unaware of it? Can you imagine a Sun, simultaneously existing at the same place as our earth and radiating heat (15 million degrees Celsius) as the Sun of our milky way radiates yet, we not feeling the heat?Unimaginable......isn't it?

But this is true! There are multiple universes existing simultaneously at the same place and time. The universe, in which we live, exists in a particular frequency of consciousness and other universes exist in other frequencies hence we cannot see them nor experience them. Even though they cross/overlap each other yet they do not interfere in the working of each other. It is something like numerous T.V channels existing simultaneously at the same place yet not interfering in each others working. Which ever channel we tune our T.V to; we are able to watch that program clearly in the T.V without other channels interfering or getting cross connected. Similarly, in spite of several universes existing simultaneously they do not interfere in each others working. Each one exists in its own frequency without causing any disturbance in others existence.

Amazing.............isn't it?

Mind may find it difficult to imagine, comprehend and agree to such revelations but people who transcend to higher consciousness would be able to experience such facts of the miraculous existence of the creation. These are some of the secrets of the mysterious all pervasive, omnipotent and eternal consciousness.

- Ramesh Jain



  Question and Answers

Q:How can mind be taken to higher levels of consciousness to enable us to experience the unseen, unheard secrets of creation?A: The thoughtless state of mind (or say mindless state of consciousness) is capable of unraveling the mysteries of creation. This state could be achieved through meditation, contemplation, comprehension, pure devotion, total surrender, Kriya yoga and other such spiritual practices.

Negativity and Negative Vibrations

 Date : 05 Aug 2007

  THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION
"Most of our problems in life are because of our own negativity and others negative vibrations. If you can overcome your negativity and ensure others do not emanate negative vibrations then there is nothing in life which you cannot achieve. You can take complete charge of your life as well as enjoy it too".- Shri Ramesh Jain
 Foriegn Tour
Sri. Rameshji Jain has traveled USA from 4th July to 24 th July 07 to conduct workshops / Programs. The response was so overwhelming that he had to conduct 12 programs as against 4 originally scheduled. The programs were conducted at Harrisburg, New York, Chicago, Houston and Atlanta.
  EXPERIANCE SHARING
"I can't tell you that how many people were talking about your presentation. You are so young but have so much of wisdom. We have great appreciation and admiration for you" "I think your message is right on the target" "I was very glad that i could make it to attend that workshop in Houston and started thinking positive and the power of imagination" "It was a most enjoyable afternoon for me personally because Mr. Jain could articulate it to a level using simple language which people in "hurried" state can comprehend and act on"
  Question and Answers
Q: How to get rid of negativity?
A: Do not talk, think, feel or imagine negatively about others or yourself in any circumstances whatsoever. When the mind becomes negative it gets tuned to negative frequencies resulting in attracting wrong people and unwanted situations in life. Make conscious effort to replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts as and when they arise. Extraordinary results will appear within not more than 30 days.

Our negativity killing us, retaliation

Date : 05 Feb 2008

  THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION
ARE YOU KILLING YOURSELF.
Not many people realize that they are killing themselves by secreting poison within their mind and spitting poison on others. The poison is in the form of negative attitude (hatred, jealousy, revenge, fear, anxiety) and negative vibrations. Even though one would have been experiencing the draconian effect of this poison by way of ill health, losses, accidents, strained relations and mental disturbances yet not many people realize that they themselves are the cause behind. They continue to kill themselves as well as harm others- Shri Ramesh Jain
  EXPERIANCE SHARING

Feedback from Program Participants: 'After my conscious effort to avoid negativity and think positive about others I found lot of changes in my life. Even my enemies started becoming good to me. I feel light, relaxed and mind is much quieter. Anxiety and hatred reduced. People are enjoying my company'.- Ravikanth


  Question and Answers

Q:When somebody harms us shouldn't we retaliate?A: No, you must never retaliate nor ever feel to take revenge. You must accept the fact that it is some action of yours, in the past, which forced the other person to harm you and he is only a medium to make you suffer. Remain calm, pray to god for the wellbeing of the person and be positive that whatever has happened happened for good. Automatic correction will start taking place in your life.
