29 12 2011 LESSON 479 Dhammapada Verse 17 Evil Action Leads to Torment Issattha Sutta Archery Skills-Adding its voice to the opposition against the government draft of the Lokpal bill, UP Chief Minister Mayawati‘s BSP has said that it was imperative that the CBI remain outside the purview of the government. Alleging that Mayawati had fallen victim to the politicization of the CBI time and again, a BSP parliamentarian added that the Chief Minister had the highest respect for the Lokayukta and had always acted on its reports at the earliest.

 BSP leader Dara Singh Chauhan’s strong support to CBI
reporting to the Lokpal might have been driven by Mayawati keeping a sharp eye
on public opinion ahead of the state poll, but the party stood apart from other
parties like SP and RJD. If
the move is tactical, it was smart thinking.

Maya on ‘corruption free’ image makeover before UP elections



Lucknow: Akin to her style of functioning, Mayawati Bahujan Samaj
Party (BSP) supremo and Chief Minister of poll bound Uttar Pradesh (UP)
slashed her whip once again on Wednesday, which resulted in two more
ministers being shown the door. Political experts see this as her
attempts for image make over of her government as ‘corruption free’ just
before assembly elections in the state.

Perhaps, she is the only CM in the state who has sacked 13 ministers
so far from her government. Most surprising is that not a single word of
murmuring is heard in her party. Not only the ministers were
relinquished from their posts, they were also denied tickets in the
assembly elections.

The latest casualty being Minister of state (Independent charge)
Additional energy Akbar Hussain and Minister of state, Science and
Technology Yashpal Singh. Their charge has been given to Power Minister
Ramveer Upadhaya.

Mayawati had earlier sacked four ministers including Minister of
Higher Education Dr Rakesh Dhar Tripathi, Minister of Agriculture
Education Rajpal Tyagi, Minister of State (independent charge) Avdhesh
Kumar Verma and Minister of State for Home Guards Hari Om Upadhaya.

After their indictment by Lokayukta she had removed six ministers
namely Badshah Singh, Rangnath Mishra, Awadh Pal Singh Yadav, Subhash
Pandey and Ratan lal Ahirwal and Chandradev Ram Yadav.

Another two ministers Babu Singh Kushwaha and Anant Kumar Mishra were
relinquished after the murder of two CMOs and a Dy CMO following multi
crore NRHM scam.

She also denied tickets to nearly 60 sitting MLAs which also include
Transport Minister Ram Achal Rajbhar who has been replaced by his son
and Nitin Aggrawal who is the son senior politician Naresh Aggrawal.


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  17. Evil Action Leads to Torment

Here one burns,
one burns hereafter,
in both ways does the evil-doer burn;
evil I’ve done, remorsefully one burns,
and more one burns passed to realms of woe.

Explanation: Those who do evil, those given to
wrong doings, are tortured in mind both here and hereafter. Being born in a
state of woe after death the doer of evil keeps on torturing himself more with
the thought “I have done evil deeds. “

Issattha Sutta: Archery
Skills

translated from the Pali
by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

At Savatthi. As he was
sitting to one side, King Pasenadi Kosala said to the
Blessed One: “Where, lord, should a gift be given?”

“Wherever the mind
feels confidence, great king.”

“But a gift given
where, lord, bears great fruit?”

“This [question] is
one thing, great king — ‘Where should a gift be given?’ — while this — ‘A gift
given where bears great fruit?’ — is something else entirely. What is given to
a virtuous person — rather than to an unvirtuous one — bears great fruit. In
that case, great king, I will ask you a counter-question. Answer as you see
fit.

What
do
you think, great king? There is the case where you have a war at hand, a
battle imminent. A noble-warrior youth would come along — untrained,
unpracticed, undisciplined, undrilled, fearful, terrified, cowardly, quick to
flee. Would you take him on? Would you have any use for a man like that?”

“No, lord, I
wouldn’t take him on. I wouldn’t have any use for a man like that.”

“Then a brahman
youth… a merchant youth… a laborer youth would come along — untrained,
unpracticed, undisciplined, undrilled, fearful, terrified, cowardly, quick to
flee. Would you take him on? Would you have any use for a man like that?”

“No, lord, I
wouldn’t take him on. I wouldn’t have any use for a man like that.”

“Now, what do you
think, great king? There is the case where you have a war at hand, a battle
imminent. A noble-warrior youth would come along — trained, practiced,
disciplined, drilled, fearless, unterrified, not cowardly, not quick to flee.
Would you take him on? Would you have any use for a man like that?”

“Yes, lord, I would
take him on. I would have use for a man like that.”

“Then a brahman
youth… a merchant youth… a laborer youth would come along — trained,
practiced, disciplined, drilled, fearless, unterrified, not cowardly, not quick
to flee. Would you take him on? Would you have any use for a man like
that?”

“Yes, lord, I would
take him on. I would have use for a man like that.”

“In the same way,
great king. When someone has gone forth from the home life into homelessness —
no matter from what clan — and he has abandoned five factors and is endowed
with five, what is given to him bears great fruit.

And
which
five factors has he abandoned? He has abandoned sensual desire… ill
will… sloth & drowsiness… restlessness & anxiety… uncertainty.
These are the five factors he has abandoned. And with which
five factors is he endowed? He is endowed with the aggregate of virtue of one
beyond training… the aggregate of concentration of one beyond training… the
aggregate of discernment of one beyond training… the aggregate of release of
one beyond training… the aggregate of knowledge & vision of release of
one beyond training. These are the five factors with which he is endowed.

“What is given to
one who has abandoned five factors and is endowed with five factors in this way
bears great fruit.”

That is what the Blessed
One said. Having said that, the One Well-Gone, the Teacher, said further:

As a king intent on
battle would hire a youth in whom there are archery skills, persistence, &
strength, and not, on the basis of birth, a coward; so, too, you should honor a
person of noble conduct, wise, in whom are established composure &
patience, even though his birth may be lowly. Let donors build pleasant
hermitages and there invite the learned to stay. Let them make reservoirs in
dry forests and walking paths where it’s rough Let them, with a clear, calm
awareness, give food, drink, snacks, clothing, & lodgings to those who’ve
become straightforward. Just as a hundred-peaked,
lightning-garlanded, thundering cloud, raining on the fertile earth, fills the
plateaus & gullies, even so a person of conviction & learning, wise,
having stored up provisions, satisfies wayfarers with food & drink.
Delighting in distributing alms, ‘Give to them! Give!’ he says. That is his
thunder, like a raining cloud’s. That shower of merit, abundant, rains back on
the one who gives.

MAY YOU BE EVER HAPPY, WELL AND SECURE
MAY YOU LIVE LONG
MAY ALL SENTIENT AND NON-SENTIENT BEINGS BE EVER HAPPY
MAY YOU BE ALWAYS HAVE CALM, QUIET, ALERT,ATTENTIVE AND
EQUANIMITY MIND WITH A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING THAT
EVERYTHING IS CHANGING
