Category : Uncategorized
Are you frustrated for being un-recognized for excellent work done ? The immediate cause : examiner, readers, boss, customer, spouse, children ? Having a a deep heartburn ?
Wisdom and understanding things in as broad as dimension is the lasting way to overcome this type of frustration. In all spiritual traditions, adepts are asked to contemplate on death to understand life better. Why death ? Because Death is the Termini and the singularity of Life as we know in this episode. Remember the four lines below when you remain frustrated due to being un-recognized
go-ras gali gali phire / Milk of Cow needs to be taken door to door
sura baithi bikai / Booze gets sold anywhere
satee-ko na mile dhoti / A chaste woman may not have enough clothes to cover
kasbin pehne khasa / A whore wears the very best.
(This verse is taken from poet and devotee Tulsidas’ Sriramcharitmanas – an Hindi trans-creation of Valmiki’s epic The Ramayana)
If you are doing an important work, it is possible that the grand-children of the current readers may regret as why you were not their contemporary in flesh and blood.
If your work is really profound and ultimately beneficial, 99% will fail to see because it is the nature of common herd to fall for something on surface.
If your work is really important, universal and profound, you may need to wait couple of generations to be taken note.
A poet of classical Sanskrit threw the challenge back to those who could not recognize his genius
Nindantu Niti-nipuna jadi ba stubantu
Laksmi samabishatu gacchatu ba jhatestham
Adiya maranam asti jugantare ba
Nyajat pathath prabichalanti padang na dhira
[ The so called clever men may condemn or worship
The goddess of fortune comes, leaves or wealth is just enough
The death may comes today or at the end of an aeon
The man of realization does not leave the path of righteousness ]
