Welcome To Warrier's COLLAGE On Saturday, March 5, 2022 Gayathri Recital https://youtu.be/8Pw-Zhk8HAQ (Link Courtesy : Saravana Varma Mumbai) Good Morning Some of the links given in today's Collage may not open. Some content may not be factual. Nice Day M G Warrier A Messages/Responses 1) Vivek Amin Nagpur In response to LIC IPO, the experienced investor never subscribes to government offerings. At present we may hear opinion on both sides but we cannot figure out now whether the government stand is balanced one in the present circumstances. 2) Vathsala Jayaraman Chennai "The trip is short" The message though short leaves an indelible impression in our minds. Vathsala Jayaraman "Take it easy" Many people take everything easy and never bother at all. We have to strike a balance as to what to care and what to ignore. 3) C V Subbaraman If you are neutral in situations of injustice....... In one of the thrillers I read recently, it was said that it is sin to be silent or inactive in situations of serious crisis. This is what India has done in the Ukrain crisis. But India has stake in maintaining relations with Russia. Subbaraman (Without being judgmental, each one can have a view. Recently, we had a discussion in the group about compromises we make. In between, I looked back and wrote a short piece on myself : https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/warriersviews/my-story-so-far-chapter-4-survival-techniques-41470/ First priority should be survival. India knows that. I think, even Russia knows. B HEARTFULLNESS MEDITATION* Close your eyes gently and let's introspect on a question before reading - What do we pray to Lord for. A child used to watch his grandfather perform the evening pooja (prayers) every day. The child also wished to perform the worship rituals by himself, but he never got a chance to do the same, since his grandfather was always there to do it. One evening, the Grandfather got late in coming back home. Taking advantage of this opportunity, the child started performing the rituals on the dedicated prayer time. When Grandfather reached home, he stood behind a wall and watched the child offer his prayers. The child uses a lot of incense sticks and other materials in the rituals. Then he starts saying his prayers : "Dear God, Please keep my Grandfather healthy, and heal Grandma's knee pain. If something happens to them, then who will bring me chocolates? God keep all my friends well, otherwise who will play with me. Please take care of my Father and Mother. And take care of our dog too, because if something happens to him, who will save the house from thieves? But God, if you don't mind, can I say something. Take care of everyone, but please first take care of yourself, because if something happens to you, then what will happen to all of us!" Hearing this simple prayer, tears welled up in the Grandfather's eyes too, because he had never prayed like this, or even heard such a prayer. It is perhaps, the lack of such pure and innocent simplicity, that holds us back from God realization/finding God, even after performing all kinds of rites and rituals in our prayers. Heartfullness Meditation *Received from V Rangarajan C Rational Thinking : Is it a myth? A link shared by Reshmy Warrier Mumbai https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2017/3/20/14915076/7-psychological-concepts-explain-trump-politics Excerpts : "The Dartmouth versus Princeton football game of November 1951 was, by all accounts, brutal. One Princeton player broke his nose. One Dartmouth player broke his leg. Princeton students blamed the Dartmouth team for instigating. The Dartmouth paper accused Princeton's. In the contentious debates that ensued about "who started it," psychologists at the two schools united to answer this question: Why did each school have such a different understanding of what happened? In the weeks after the Princeton-Dartmouth game, the psychologists Albert Hastorf and Hadley Cantril ran a very simple test. Their findings would become the classic example of a concept called motivated reasoning: Our tendency to come to conclusions we're already favored to believe. When they asked students at each of their universities to watch video highlights from the game, 90 percent of the Princeton students said it was Dartmouth that instigated the rough play. Princeton students were also twice as likely to call penalties on Dartmouth than their own team. The majority of Dartmouth students, on the other hand, said both sides were to blame for the rough play in the game, and called a similar number of penalties for both teams. Hastorf and Cantril's conclusion wasn't that one set of fans was lying. It's that being a fan fundamentally changes the way you perceive the game." (I agree with this conclusion. What about you?🙏-Warrier) D Faith/Spirituality 1) Purusha Suktam https://www.speakingtree.in/blog/purusha-suktam-with-significance-power Purusha Suktam is an ancient Rig Vedic hymn, which is in praise of the universal being, Purusha. He pervades everything conscious and unconscious. It also appears in the Sama-veda Samhita, the Taittiriya Aranyaka, the Vajasaneyi Samhita, and the Atharva Veda Samhita. Purusha, the Supreme Being, is all-pervasive and extends beyond all directions and dimensions. He is beyond the limitations of any structure or form and hence is formless. Also, Lord Vishnu, who is invoked in this worship, remains the physical manifestation of spiritual consciousness and also the guardian of all living beings on the Earth. Chanting or listening to Purusha Suktam can bless the devotees with clarity of mind, excellence in all actions undertaken, success in endeavors, peace and joy in life, and also radiance, wealth, strength, prudence, prosperity, and power. 2) Dr Charan Singh's Tweet charan singh (@CharanSingh60) Tweeted: Unity in Diversity - 180 जब देखा तब गावा तउ जन धीरजु पावा Seeing God present everywhere, singing God's praises This is how to obtain solace within Namdev, Raag Sorath, 657, SGGS https://twitter.com/CharanSingh60/status/1499505270602743809?s=20&t=FhrJj4UIhE0EG6cmJzOwBg E Collage listened to some billionaires : Pre-Covid Days https://www.cnbc.com/2019/12/31/what-billionaires-said-about-wealth-inequality-and-capitalism-in-2019.html F Leisure 1) Definition of War* "War is a place where young people who don't know each other and don't hate each other kill each other, by the decision of old people who know each other and hate each other, but don't kill each other." - Erich Hartman (Erich Alfred Hartmann was a German fighter pilot during World War II and the most successful fighter ace in the history of aerial warfare. He flew 1,404 combat missions and participated in aerial combat on 825 separate occasions) *Received from S Venugopal via Group mail 2) Last and final engine* Counting the Engines It just happens that a long time ago, and for the first time in their lives, two country boys take their first flight from Florida to New York. While they're talking to each other they get interrupted by an announcement from the pilot: "Sorry to disturb you all but I think it's best you know one of our engines has failed. Don't worry we can still make it on 3 engines but there'll be a delay of one hour." So they begin talking again but soon another announcement is heard: "We regret to inform you that our second engine has failed which will mean another delay of an hour but don't worry we'll still make it." So the two grumble a bit but not for long as the pilot's voice is heard again after a few minutes: "Unfortunately our third engine has failed, meaning there'll be a delay of another hour to the journey." One of them turns to his friend and says, "Well darn, if that last engine fails we'll be up here all night!" *Received from A P Ramadurai Cheñnai G Ukraine Update 1) United Notions https://m.timesofindia.com/world/us/ukraine-crisis-distance-yourself-from-russia-us-tells-india-after-abstentions/amp_articleshow/89978935.cms And we "VETOED" the request! 2) Fire @ Nuclear Installation in Ukraine https://www.reuters.com/markets/europe/top-wrap-1-europes-largest-nuclear-power-plant-fire-after-russian-attack-mayor-2022-03-04/
