The Noble One’s Happiness

“See
how the world together with the devas has self-conceit for what is not-self.
Enclosed by mind-and-body it imagines, ‘This is real.’ Whatever they imagine it
to be, it is quite different from that. It is unreal, of a false nature and
perishable. Nibbana, not false in nature, that the Noble Ones[1]

know as true. Indeed, by the penetration of the true, they are completely
stilled and realize final deliverance.


“Forms,
sounds, tastes, scents, bodily contacts and ideas which are agreeable, pleasant
and charming, all these, while they last, are deemed to be happiness by the
world with its devas. But when they cease that is agreed by all to be
unsatisfactory. By the Noble Ones, the cessation of the existing body[2]

is seen as happiness. This is the reverse of the outlook of the whole world.


“What
others call happiness, that the Noble Ones declare to be suffering. What others
call suffering, that the Noble Ones have found to be happiness. See how
difficult it is to understand the Dhamma! Herein those without insight have
completely gone astray. For those under the veil (of ignorance) it is obscured,
for those who cannot see it is utter darkness. But for the good and the wise it
is as obvious as the light for those who can see. Even though close to it, the
witless who do not know the Dhamma, do not comprehend it.


“By
those overcome by attachment to existence, those who drift with the stream of
existence, those in the realm of Mara, this Dhamma is not
properly understood. Who other than the Noble Ones, are fit to fully understand
that state, by perfect knowledge of which they realize final deliverance, free
from defilements?”[3]



Notes


1.


The Noble Ones or ariya
are the Buddhas and their disciples.


2.


The “existing
body” (sakkaya) is a term for the five aggregates as objects of
grasping.


3.


Anusava; the defilements or asava,
literally “out-flows,” are dissipations of energy in the form of
sensual desire, becoming (the perpetuation of existence), views and ignorance
and are the same as the four “floods” mentioned earlier. One who has
destroyed the defilements (khinasava) is another name for an arahant or
Perfected One.

POLITICS is
SACRED with Highly Performing Best Meritorious GOVERNANCE of UP CM MAYAWTI JI


Mayawati
wants SC/ST quota in judiciary and private sector



Ashish Tripathi, TNN Oct 1, 2011, 06.47PM IST

LUCKNOW: UP chief minister Mayawati shot off yet another letter,
seventh in last 10 days, to prime minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday.
This time she has demanded increase in the percentage of reservation
provided to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (SC/ST) in view of
increase in their population and introduce quota system in the
judiciary, private sector and other places where it has not been
implemented as yet.

Earlier, she had written to the prime minister for providing
reservation to Jats under other backward class (OBC) category, upper
caste poor on financial basis, quota within quota in OBC category to
backward Muslims, inclusion of 25 most backward classes (MBC), SC/ST
Muslims and SC/STChristians in the SC/ST category, pathetic condition
of national highways in UP and shortage of fertilisers. She is also
looking forward for an alliance of SC/ST-Brahmin-Muslim-MBC for 2012
elections. BSP had come to power with absolute majority in 2007 with
the support of SC/STs and by successfully wooing a section of Brahims,
Muslims and MBCs.

In her letter, Mayawati has
stated that the population of SCs and
tribals have increased considerably since Independence, hence it is
important to increase the percentage of reservation to SC/STs and
tribals in government jobs and educational institutions. She
reiterated inclusion of MBCs in SC/ST list and providing them a fixed
quota within quota. She had suggested that after including MBCs, SC/ST
Christians and SC/ST Muslims in the SC/ST category, the percentage of
quota should also be increased in accordance with the increase in
number of communities. She had even recommended amendment in the
constitution to increase quota and to include more castes and classes
for reservation benefit. She had demanded that the reservation policy
should be put in the ninth schedule of the constitution so that it
cannot be challenged in any court of law.

Arguing that increase in quota will help marginalised sections to join
national mainstream, Mayawati also patted her back for initiating
number of schemes to benefit downtrodden in UP. The BSP government has
introduced quota for dalits in allotment of government contracts upto
Rs 25 lakh, reservation facility in promotions, filling of backlog
reserved category vacancies, 10% quota in jobs in private sector units
established with the help of state government and quota in jobs for
dalits in the services outsourced to the private sector. Mayawati has
also decided to introduce 23% quota to SC/ST and 27% for OBCs in the
industrial units established under public-private-partnership.
Besides, the government has also implemented several schemes - free
housing for urban poor and dalits, scholarships for dalits, backwards
and Muslims among other things.

Incidentally, Mayawati appointed 1977 batch IPS officer Brij Lal, a
dalit, as the new director general of police (DGP) of UP on Saturday
following superannuation of RK Tiwari, a Brahmin. Tiwari was made DGP
last month after retirement of Karamveer Singh. Tiwari remained DGP
for around a month. Political analysts say that Mayawati has tried to
give a message to both Brahmins and Dalits with appointments of Tiwari
and Lal. Significantly, Lal was already handling several important
police departments. A judicial magistrate in Ghaziabad had recently
directed police to lodge an FIR against Lal and some other senior IPS
officers on the petition of a police constable Brijendra Singh Yadav
who alleged that Rs 25 per month were illegally deducted from the
salaries of 3.5 lakh constables in UP. Lal has challenged the order in
the High Court.
