What is religion?
To know the nature of “I” or to know the characteristic of “I”.
What is the rule of “I”? What does religion teach us? The same thing which life teaches us, our duty. What is our duty? It is to lead our life as per the characteristic of “I”. To lead our life with love, care, affection, truth, peace, independence, and oneness.
Don’t we have love in us? If we don’t have it inside then nobody can fill us from the outside. Everybody has it but its speed is slow. Why? Because we are traveling towards different subject. Because we are wrong at the first step itself.
This journey of “I” starts with “I” which after traveling in different forms converges into one. All these endless color, shapes, are the potential of “I”. Information, knowledge, familiarity, are all the stages of “I” which tells us how developed our “I” is. We can take any subject, it has a very deep journey.
All this expansion is very vast and very deep topic. Leaving aside everything we will discuss this normal topic. These words which we speak, write, now a days, type are due to this new object whose speed is much faster i.e. technology. Typing is a part of technology. When we start analyzing these words then the depth of these words will take us to our “I”. Jesus said “In the beginning there was Word”. Nanak said “Shabad Guru”, Krishna said ‘’Giyaan Yog’’. What does it mean? Many things have been said. Here I want to say that we can enter into religion by going into the depth of the words because everything has depth weather positive or negative.
Till the time we don’t look into “I”, we don’t recognize “I” we are not living our life. Our life starts with our “I”. When we recognize our “I” world becomes family, world becomes country.

For example “I” was born in Sikh religion, so I had to go to Gurdwara but I dreamt of Krishna though I do not know who Krishna was.
At the physical level “I” am sikh but at mental level “I” am hindu. At night I would hear music. After 20 years I came to know that it was verses of Quran, means at deep mental level “I” was muslim.
Now the question is that if in this physical world we call this “I” as Sikh but is that the reality?
“I” means that in this “I” the whole universe exist. With the birth of the baby, the word family comes into existence. Country or society come into existence rarely and religion comes into existence very rarely in centuries. Why? Because the journey of “I” is physical, it is the journey of an object.
Not only in this world but in whole universe the religion is one and the first word of it is “I.” The journey starts with “I” and ends with “I.”
Many people die in their childhood. The body can age to 90 but “I” always stays in childhood. If 52% reach their youth, then old age has been rare. Why? Because our speed is slow, by then, time has come to change the body.
Then what should be done? We should live the character of “I.” Means we should make “I” as subject. We should not let any object become subject.
What is this “I”?
The answer to this question changes at every level, it changes with every color and shape. Why?
“I” is like water – see through. Whatever color we put into water, it becomes that color. But what is the color of water? What is the color, and shape of air? What is the color of space and temperature?
Body, society, family, country, these are mirrors through which we see and recognize “I”.

received its aim. Who’s strength is it? It is of “I”. “I” owns potential, What is Potential? “I” virtue.
Family and country turns the limited potential of “I” to unlimited by giving motion. This motion do not belong to family or country instead it belongs to “I” which has created its motion in this family, society and country.
In family this “I” takes the form of son, daughter, brother, sister, mother, father, which is very limited. In society it becomes friendship and in country it takes the form of human due to which this limited form undergoes expansion.
“I” is neither a ritual nor it is subjected to any discrimination. It’s not a citizen of any country that we can label it as American or Canadian. We should not see this “I” through any object. Everything is expanding of this “I” and is projecting the possibilities of “I.” There is one question ( what am “I”) and one subject (“I”) and we have to take one action (finding the answer) and this action will become Karma. Family is the foundation of life. Society has erected its wall and country made the house.
Family acts as boundary, society makes person mature and country takes care and give direction to this maturity. What are these outer supports? Do they not supported “I”?
Our personal life is a part of public life. It is our companion in developing the potential in “me” because the companion is one which is with us.
Where are we together?
We are together in family, society and country and nothing else. “I” is a kind of seed from which countless features can grow. Here grow means that we awake towards the potential of our virtues.
In childhood the potential of “I” spends in family, and youth in society and country. Do not forget that potential of “I” is not of family or country.
What does family say? What are the rules and regulations of the country? What is religion? Why is there religion? What is the true definition of religion? We have to analyze all these points on the basis of our own deep existence and always consider “I” as a subject.
Everything in this world is beautiful. Everything has value, has rule and discipline. We have to recognize this. Today, we have to look at family and religion through the eye of “I”. If there was no “I” then? With “I” family and religion are identified. Then why not, we first try to understand “I”, and what are its virtue.
Virtues that awakens within “I” are the ones we recognize, which means we travel with the virtues and vice in motions.
Life’s motion is due to this virtues and vices only. Love, service, care, for family, is the form of “I”. Whatever we see in the family like love, care, peace, sorrow, is because it is already within us. Family awakens our internal potential, giving us the ability to walk.
When we go in society, then we learn what is yours and mine, rituals and economic differences.
Family strengthens the roots then society like leafs and branches of the tree brings happiness due to which our potential become deeper as well as new ones spout.
“Country” takes our potential ahead from which flowers of deep feelings blooms upon our happiness. It means, “I” potential individual identity starts to grow.
If these three stages (family, society and country) we stand in the physical world, where we developed relationships with physical appearance, shape and size. These potential, which are in motion within “I”, becomes powerful with the supported by these three stages. Why did “I” became powerful? Because it had power, its strength has motion, and became powerful with the three stages, or in other worlds the power

Life is a ceremony where we are here as friends and families to celebrate this occasion. Today’s accelerated moments which we gain from our advance technology has enabled us to travel through the universe, and strengthens our thirst of life.
I am fortunate enough to see and meet you all. The uniqueness of this celebration is that we ourselves are hosts and guests, So today we are meeting, with wishes of peace and happiness.
In this ceremony of life, my heart wished to present a gift. The gift should be of something which can bring hope of a happy life. With the grace of God, a pure thought was born which I am gifting today.
A new, unique and virgin view of point, with which we will encounter life.
Wise have said, “If our first step is placed with understanding then our destination becomes easier, and also our path, pleasant.”
Paint your own portrait, then you will realize.
How difficult it is, to give yourself any face
This line written by an anonymous writer, deepened my thoughts. True, its hard giving ourselves a face therefore we give ourselves outer faces. I am American, Greek, Iranian or Italian or I’m Hindu, Muslim, Jewish or Christian. I am not going to do this or that. From where does all this start?
We all say it starts from family, but here our very first step becomes wrong. Family, country, religion and rituals are all objects. The subject of life is only one, from which life starts. Which is “I”. When the level of “I” changes, its color, characteristics, and shape changes. My gift emerges from this point that today we will see the life through “I” and not from any object like family, country or religion.
The clouds moving about in the Sky. It seems to me that this sky is my own self, and these clouds are only my own thoughts and reflections and the collections of countless drops—the collections of my own desires which are falling in showers but do not quench the thirst of my being still.
It seems to me that:
All the trees that are growing around and the blossoming flowers, are the flowers of thirsty longing, blossoming in my life’s breaths and looking for the means to quench their thirst.
I feel that:
These flowing cataracts, these running streams, are my own life, which owing to the madness of my own longing, are flowing in an unknown direction.
“` The Human is very Clever Animal:
~ Everything that has an inner reality, if not preserved through its counter part of it’s outer reality and practice, then the wisdom teaching which is part of the inner reality gets lost over time. We have many historical evidences that will testify this that when the outer forms which hold and work as a container of the inner teachings and symbols are discarded, then even the inner reality is lost over time.
Sacrifice of the animal is meant to sacrifice the inner animalistic attribute of human being.
*Sacrifice of animal is the outward action as a reflection of the inner reality of true sacrifice of the self –‘The EGO’
Since every individual is unique and distinct in himself or herself then whatever they do will inevitably carry the mark of his or her uniqueness. They will reveal their uniqueness in a way as to astonish everyone. It happens when the individual becomes fully aware of himself or herself, and the art that reveals this awareness creates the uniqueness. As for the unique distinction of the books, whatever I read or heard since my childhood contained the mention of the attainment of the destination and of the life beyond omnipresent. It contained no account of the conflict between the mind and the intellect in the journey of spirituality. Therefore, these books refer to the journey and not to the attainment of the destination.
Osho remarked that humans ought to be happy and in comfort so that life could become a celebration. Osho put forth science and Religion tinged in the same hue. He expressed his own views as well as presented the views of Krishna, Buddha, and Jesus in a new light for the rejuvenation of the individual.
I for the sake of my comfort and happiness began to examine my own life. For me my own life is as the Vedas and other Holy Scripts and my own experiences for me are veritable milestones. Whenever my experience referred me back to the Holy Scripts, then I used the Holy Scripts as an illustration. My books are purely scientific because life is the greatest scientific style. Religion and science are a part of life, one provides life with peace and tranquility from within, and the other makes life happy and comfortable, externally. My book relates my physical, mental, intellectual, and spiritual journey.
Just as Silvia brown has mainly dwelt on the force of mind, my books relate to the state of the world, of nature, and the infinite power of the universe.
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer said that man could make his life beautiful with meditation, and references from the Vedas and other scriptures, he influenced his readers to raise and uplift their lives. My books begin with silence, self-dedication which is within the capacity of everyone; for knowledge, intellectual is essential.
Deepak Chopra has repeated Hindu religion and I have pointed out the myriad hues of life which is within the capacity of every individual. If a meagerly educated woman like me can live her life comfortable and happily, then so can everyone else. When my experiences remind me of the Buddha, Einstein, Hitler, Krishna, Newton, Jesus, and Mohammed then their mention becomes for me my religion and the universe became for me my temple.
The book entitled Secret made mention of the law of attraction. In my books, I mention appertains life as a whole from a stone to the individual, from the world to the universe, from matter to nature. There is need for a mighty weapon to understand this collective life, and that mighty weapon is silence which is the human’s habitual characteristic. Silence makes human transcend in time and enables them to travel all over the universe because silence is the loftiest knowledge, it fosters the spirit of devotion to the universe and love for life.
“`I love those moments when i realized that i am an idiot. these moments are very beautiful and powerful and very deep painful, because this idiotic is very clean–clearer than any knowledge. this idiotic is healthy, because those moments are silent only and silence is very wonderful state; then I realized again that I am Silence only.
Then I said to myself,
” Rose, let the Rose die completely dear; she is still alive, let her die, mallah ( Dearest ).
Now that Rose is on death-bed. There is no pain, because Rose feels that she is birthing. This birth brings everything in my being, and…
My being is growing vast like sky but very aliveness…
Emptiness but very energy…
Nothingness but very healthy…
Alonelyness but very blissful…
Freeness but very rejoicefully.
