POLITICS
is SACRED with HIGHLY PERFORMING BEST & MERITORIOUS GOVERNANCE of

VOICE OF SARVAJAN


There is Good name and fame !
In Mayawati’s imaginary Bad Name !

CM will be PM !

Badnam me hi nam hotha hai !
CM Mayawati PM banjatha hai !

After
indulging in corruption for Sixty five years, congress was now trying to fool
the voters by anouncing Reservation for Muslims and a weak Lokpal Bill, despite
implementing reservation for SC/ST/OBCs. Was Congress not aware of corruption and
need for reservation in the past sixty five years?

 

What
is the Dynastic Youraj’s credentials when he went to drought-stricken
Bundelkhand where the SC/STs were suffering the most.Why he or his party bothered
to release Rs.80000 crores as requested by Mayawati? Whom is he fooling?

But
the money never reached them because the magic hand (Congres’s election symbol)
only knew how to grab black money and put it in swiss Bank, but never learnt to
give for the aam aadmi and only to consumed it,”

Time had
come for a change and it was up to the people to usher in this change.
People
  have wasted 65 years,  but now they should give five years to the  in UP and elect Mayawati as Prime Minister to
see the difference.

BSP is not just
for another 5 years term in UP, but will not rest until the Central Government
is changed.

The Congress in
2004 had promised a government of aam aadmi and before that Gahribi Hatao the never
fulfilled its promise.

The country
showed no signs of development. The poor, farmers, common man had not
developed. Congress made only a single promise
 that is price rise and Natak Bazz (Drama)

Verse
16. Good Deeds Bring Happiness
Here one joys, one joys hereafter,
in both ways does the merit-maker joy;
one joys and one rejoices,
one’s own pure kammas seeing.
Explanation: A wise person does good deeds. Having done those
good deeds he rejoices here in this world. He rejoices in the life after as
well. Seeing the purity of his virtuous actions, he rejoices. He is thoroughly
joyous seeing the goodness of his deeds.

Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta:
Setting the Wheel of Dhamma in Motion
translated from the Pali by
Thanissaro Bhikkhu
Alternate translations: Ñanamoli | Harvey | Piyadassi
I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying at
Varanasi in the Game Refuge at Isipatana.
There he addressed the group of five monks:
There are these two extremes that
are not to be indulged in by one who has gone forth. Which two? That which is
devoted to sensual pleasure with reference to sensual objects: base, vulgar,
common, ignoble, unprofitable; and that which is devoted to self-affliction:
painful, ignoble, unprofitable. Avoiding both of these extremes, the middle way
realized by the Tathagata — producing vision, producing knowledge — leads to
calm, to direct knowledge, to self-awakening, to Unbinding.
And what is the middle way realized
by the Tathagata that — producing vision, producing knowledge — leads to calm,
to direct knowledge, to self-awakening, to Unbinding? Precisely this Noble
Eightfold Path: right view, right resolve, right speech, right action, right
livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, right concentration. This is the
middle way realized by the Tathagata that — producing vision, producing
knowledge — leads to calm, to direct knowledge, to self-awakening, to
Unbinding.
Now this, monks, is the noble truth of
stress:[1]

Birth is stressful, aging is stressful, death is stressful; sorrow,
lamentation, pain, distress, & despair are stressful; association with the
unbeloved is stressful, separation from the loved is stressful, not getting
what is wanted is stressful. In short, the five clinging-aggregates are
stressful.
“And this, monks, is the noble truth of the origination of
stress: the craving that makes for further becoming — accompanied by passion
& delight, relishing now here & now there — i.e., craving for sensual
pleasure, craving for becoming, craving for non-becoming.
“And this, monks, is the noble truth of the cessation of
stress: the remainderless fading & cessation, renunciation, relinquishment,
release, & letting go of that very craving.
“And this, monks, is the noble truth of the way of practice
leading to the cessation of stress: precisely this Noble Eightfold Path — right
view, right resolve, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right
effort, right mindfulness, right concentration.
“Vision arose, insight arose, discernment arose, knowledge
arose, illumination arose within me with regard to things never heard before:
‘This is the noble truth of stress.’ Vision arose, insight arose, discernment
arose, knowledge arose, illumination arose within me with regard to things
never heard before: ‘This noble truth of stress is to be comprehended.’ Vision
arose, insight arose, discernment arose, knowledge arose, illumination arose
within me with regard to things never heard before:’ This noble truth of stress
has been comprehended.’
“Vision arose, insight arose, discernment arose, knowledge
arose, illumination arose within me with regard to things never heard before:
‘This is the noble truth of the origination of stress’… ‘This noble truth of
the origination of stress is to be abandoned’ [2]

… ‘This noble truth of the origination of stress has been abandoned.’
“Vision arose, insight arose, discernment arose, knowledge
arose, illumination arose within me with regard to things never heard before:
‘This is the noble truth of the cessation of stress’… ‘This noble truth of
the cessation of stress is to be directly experienced’… ‘This noble truth of
the cessation of stress has been directly experienced.’
“Vision arose, insight arose, discernment arose, knowledge
arose, illumination arose within me with regard to things never heard before:
‘This is the noble truth of the way of practice leading to the cessation of stress’…
‘This noble truth of the way of practice leading to the cessation of stress is
to be developed’… ‘This noble truth of the way of practice leading to the
cessation of stress has been developed.’ [3]
“And, monks, as long as this — my three-round,
twelve-permutation knowledge & vision concerning these four noble truths as
they have come to be — was not pure, I did not claim to have directly awakened
to the right self-awakening unexcelled in the cosmos with its deities, Maras,
& Brahmas, with its contemplatives & priests, its royalty &
commonfolk. But as soon as this — my three-round, twelve-permutation knowledge
& vision concerning these four noble truths as they have come to be — was
truly pure, then I did claim to have directly awakened to the right
self-awakening unexcelled in the cosmos with its deities, Maras & Brahmas,
with its contemplatives & priests, its royalty & commonfolk. Knowledge
& vision arose in me: ‘Unprovoked is my release. This is the last birth.
There is now no further becoming.’”
That is what the Blessed One said. Gratified, the group of five
monks delighted at his words. And while this explanation was being given, there arose to Ven. Kondañña the
dustless, stainless Dhamma eye: Whatever is subject to
origination is all subject to cessation.
And when the Blessed One had set the Wheel of Dhamma in motion,
the earth devas cried out: “At Varanasi, in the Game Refuge at Isipatana,
the Blessed One has set in motion the unexcelled Wheel of Dhamma that cannot be
stopped by priest or contemplative, deva, Mara or God or
anyone in the cosmos.” On hearing the earth devas’ cry, the devas of the
Four Kings’ Heaven took up the cry… the devas of the Thirty-three… the Yama devas… the Tusita devas… the Nimmanarati devas… the Paranimmita-vasavatti
devas… the devas of Brahma’s retinue took up the cry:
“At Varanasi, in the Game Refuge at Isipatana, the Blessed One has set in
motion the unexcelled Wheel of Dhamma that cannot be stopped by priest or
contemplative, deva, Mara, or God or anyone at all in the cosmos.”
So in that moment, that instant, the cry shot right up to the
Brahma worlds. And this ten-thousand fold cosmos shivered & quivered &
quaked, while a great, measureless radiance appeared in the cosmos, surpassing
the effulgence of the devas.
Then the Blessed One exclaimed: “So you really know,
Kondañña? So you really know?” And that is how Ven. Kondañña acquired the
name Añña-Kondañña — Kondañña who knows.

Notes

1.
The Pali phrases for the four noble truths are grammatical
anomalies. From these anomalies, some scholars have argued that the expression “noble
truth” is a later addition to the texts. Others have argued even further
that the content of the four truths is also a later addition. Both of these
arguments are based on the unproven assumption that the language the Buddha
spoke was grammatically regular, and that any irregularities were later
corruptions of the language. This assumption forgets that the languages of the
Buddha’s time were oral dialects, and that the nature of such dialects is to
contain many grammatical irregularities. Languages tend to become regular only
when being used to govern a large nation state or to produce a large body of
literature: events that happened in India only after the Buddha’s time. (A
European example: Italian was a group of irregular oral dialects until Dante fashioned
it into a regular language for the sake of his poetry.) Thus the irregularity
of the Pali here is no proof either for the earliness or lateness of this
particular teaching.
2.
Another argument for the lateness of the expression “noble
truth” is that a truth — meaning an accurate statement about a body of
facts — is not something that should be abandoned. In this case, only the
craving is to be abandoned, not the truth about craving. However, in Vedic
Sanskrit — as in modern English — a “truth” can mean both a fact and
an accurate statement about a fact. Thus in this case, the “truth” is
the fact, not the statement about the fact, and the argument for the lateness
of the expression does not hold.
3.
The discussion in the four paragraphs beginning with the phrase,
“Vision arose…,” takes two sets of variables — the four noble
truths and the three levels of knowledge appropriate to each — and lists their
twelve permutations. In ancient Indian philosophical and legal traditions, this
sort of discussion is called a wheel. Thus, this passage is the Wheel of Dhamma
from which the discourse takes its name.

84000 Khandas As Found in the Pali Suttas


Awakeness Practices



Traditionally
there are 84,000 Dhamma Doors - 84,000 ways to get Awakeness. Maybe so;
certainly the Buddha taught a large number of practices that lead to
Awakeness. This web page
 http://sarvajan.ambedkar.org attempts to catalogue those found in the Pali Suttas (DN, MN, SN, AN, Ud & Sn 1). There are 3 sections:



The discourses of Buddha are divided into 84,000, as to separate addresses. The
division includes all that was spoken by Buddha.”I received from Buddha,” said
Ananda, “82,000 Khandas, and
  from the priests 2000; these are 84,000
Khandas maintained by me.” They are divided into 275,250, as to the stanzas of
the original text, and into 361,550, as to the stanzas of the commentary. All
the discourses including both those of Buddha and those of the commentator, are
divided  into 2,547 banawaras, containing
737,000 stanzas, and 29,368,000 separate letters.



A team is working to translate all the Pali Suttas to English. It will take 20 years
to do so.



Each ofthem could be made as episodes and video-graphed, animate pictures and moving
images could be added along with relevant chantings.
