Bangalore, March 25, 2013, DHNS:

The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Social
Democratic Party of India (SDPI) have entered into an electoral
understanding for the Assembly elections.

Addressing a
joint press conference, BSP State president Marasandra Muniyappa and
SDPI State president K Abdul Majeed said here on Monday that as both
parties had similar principles, it had been decided to have a seat
sharing arrangement.

Maya says yes

Muniyappa said BSP national president Mayawati had given consent for the poll tie-up

Support in the offing

He said the Vatal Paksha, the JD(U) and certain social organisations may soon take a decision to support the BSP.

Majeed
said that his party could win 17 seats in the ULB elections. The party
is keen on working for the welfare of the oppressed communities, and
hence decided to have a poll understanding with the BSP.

“A Special Transmission Outside the Scriptures.
It does not Rely upon Words and Letters,
but Points Directly to the Human Mind.
See Your Nature and Become a Buddha!”

Course Description:


What are we talking about when we talk about Zen? This course is an introduction to the intellectual and cultural history of the style of Buddhism known as Zen in Japanese. We will examine the development and expression of this religious movement in China, Korea, Japan, and Vietnam.

In these countries, the sect is called Ch’an, Son, Zen, and Thien respectively. All of these names are transliterations of a Sanskrit word for meditation, dhyana. Zen is the meditation school. Mediation is the heart of Zen practice.

And yet, this kind of Buddhism is famous not only for its focus on meditation, but also for its paradoxical statements known as koan; for its iconoclasm, spontaneity, and freedom. We will explore all of this, but may also come to know other sides of Zen. Zen discipline. Zen art. Zen mummies. Zen poetry. Zen nationalism. Zen institutions. Zen gardens. 

The course is divided into five broad and overlapping themes. We will begin by examining the idea of religious experience and try to understand the methods and the goals of Zen practice. Next, we will question the role of history and historical awareness in the study of religion. In the third segment of the course, we will delve deeper into Zen philosophy and explore the relationship between ends and means. The fourth theme engages the koan and the place of language in Zen. Finally, we will probe Zen soteriologies. What could salvation mean in the face of Emptiness?

Course Requirements:

This is a seminar. Students are expected to read all assignments carefully and come to class ready to discuss them. The instructor will post questions as topics for our conversations through the class email list each week, and students are invited to do so as well. Each student is expected to be an active participant in the classroom discussions and online discussions. (approx. 25%)

In addition, students will make group presentations once a week. Each student will be responsible for one presentation over the course of the semester. These should be five to ten minutes long. Dry and boring summaries that fail to engage the readings in critical dialogue will receive low grades. (approx. 15%)

Students will submit one five-page mid-term essay on the course assignments and one research paper of fifteen pages on a topic chosen from a list provided by the instructor. Students are also welcome to devise their own topics in consultation with the instructor. (approx. 30% each)


Course Assignments:

Thich Nhat Hanh, The Miracle of Mindfulness

A Christian Prayer for Daily Contemplative Practice
By Carl McColman in Spirituality

Seagrove Beach, FL. Photo by Fran McColman.

O God of Uncreated Light, we come before you now to offer you our selves. We can only do this through your grace.
Grant us the grace of mindfulness. Help us to be calm, so that we may rest in your silence and peace.
Grant us the grace of willingness. Transform our will into yours, with delight and joy.
Grant us the grace of heartfulness. Unite us with you in the mystery of love, that we may love our neighbors as ourselves.
All this we ask with glad confidence and hope in you, O God, by the power of the Holy Spirit through the humanity of your blessed son Jesus Christ. Amen.

I wrote a version of this prayer a few years ago. I’ve adapted it for use in the Winter Feast for the Soul series of podcasts I’m doing in support of a daily Christian meditation/contemplative prayer practice. I thought I’d post it here in case anyone might want to print it out or share it with others. Obviously, I have written this prayer specifically within the context of the Christian tradition, although of course it is my hope that it could be a blessing to people of any or all faith traditions.

If you are praying it in solitude, perhaps you would like to use this version instead (although it’s certainly appropriate to pray in the plural voice, even when alone!):

Sufism — Sufis — Sufi Orders
Sufism’s Many Paths
Dr. Alan Godlas, University of Georgia

Sufism or tasawwuf, as it is called in Arabic, is generally understood by scholars and Sufis to be the inner, mystical, or psycho-spiritual dimension of Islam. Today, however, many Muslims and non-Muslims believe that Sufism is outside the sphere of Islam. Nevertheless, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, one of the foremost scholars of Islam, in his article The Interior Life in Islam contends that Sufism is simply the name for the inner or esoteric dimension of Islam.

After nearly 30 years of the study of Sufism, I would say that in spite of its many variations and voluminous expressions, the essence of Sufi practice is quite simple. It is that the Sufi surrenders to God, in love, over and over; which involves embracing with love at each moment the content of one’s consciousness (one’s perceptions, thoughts, and feelings, as well as one’s sense of self) as gifts of God or, more precisely, as manifestations of God.

Workshop on Sufi-Islamic meditation with Dr. Godlas in the Bahamas, March 22-24, 2012 As a part of the “Meditation as a Path to Enlightenment: An Interfaith Symposium” held at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat in Nassau, Bahamas, March 18, 2012 to March 24, 2012, Dr. Godlas will be giving a series of presentations (on March 22, 23, and 24) involving both lectures on meditative practice in Sufism as well as sessions of silent and vocal dhikr (i.e., Sufi meditation and chanting). Participants are welcome to come for just Dr. Godlas’ presentations, for the entire symposisum, or for any part of it. For costs and reservations, see the information at Sivananda Ashram website, linked here.

Sufi Spiritual Transformation Workshop w/Dr. Godlas March 29-30, 2008, near Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Sufis Without Borders An online semi-private discussion group loosely moderated by Dr. Godlas and a moderating committee; currently over 1100 international participants from many Sufi orders and perspectives, interested non-Sufis, and scholars.

WASHINGTON - Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States Sherry Rehman told an American audience at a cultural event on Saturday night that Sufism embraces the spirit of tolerance and inclusion, and its message is increasingly relevant in this age of competing ideologies.

She was speaking at the Smithsonian Institute, where popular Pakistani Sufi singer Sanam Marvi gave a mesmerizing performance, attended by Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar.The new US ambassador to Pakistan, Richard Olson, senior American officials and a large number of Pakistani and American followers of the mystic poetry and music attended the performance by the acclaimed singer. In her remarks, sherry made it clear that Sufism was not a sect of Islam. “Its practice encapsulates the very essence of our faith,” the Pakistani envoy said.

“For over a decade now,” she said, “we have seen the marketplace of global ideas distorted by new walls of hatred and prejudice… This negativity causes many to lose hope in the project of peaceful civilizations, that instead of clashing, nurture the best in humanity.”

She told the audience that Pakistan’s founding father, Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, actively advocated a plural model of citizenship, asserting that all Pakistani citizens shall enjoy the same rights and privileges, regardless of their religious affiliation.

Sherry explained to the attentive audience the message of Sufism as she observed that “being grounded in the mystical connection between the individual and the divine, Sufism embraces the spirit of tolerance and inclusion in both its discourse and practice”.

“This is one of the reasons why Sufi saints played a central role in the spread of Islam, especially in South Asia, making it the second biggest and the most practiced religion in the world,” she added.

“The Sufi doctrine is simple and universal, that the light of God abides in the heart of each person. The Sufi ‘tariqa’ or the Sufi way guides us on the roads of the inner journey towards discovering the self, for the ultimate goal of reaching the divine light and wisdom that each one of us carries within.”

“What could, indeed, be a more appropriate and opportune time to think and reflect about the message of unity, peace, togetherness and patience exemplified by the life and teachings of Sufi saints and their philosophy of life?” the ambassador stressed.

Call Toll Free No ’1950′ to Lodge Assembly Poll related complaints

Each Assembly constituency will have three to four flying
squads for monitoring poll related complaints and a toll free number
‘1950’ will be kept operational round the clock to receive complaints.

At a video conference with Deputy Commissioners (DCs) and
Superintendents of Police (SPs) held at the Office of the Chief
Electoral Officer (OCEO), Karnataka in Bangalore on Sunday, Director
General (Election Expenditure) P K Das directed the district
administrations to ensure that all complaints are immediately attended
to and that there should be level playing field for all candidates.

Each flying squad will have one executive magistrate (senior
officer), four policemen and a videographer. Each Assembly constituency
will have three to four flying squads.
On receiving the complaint, the squad will rush to the complaint site
and take necessary action, a press release from the OCEO stated.

Inform us: EC

The Election Commission has emphasized that the district machinery
should set up composite checkposts. It has also appealed to all citizens
to share information on distribution of liquor, money and gifts. The
officials were instructed to share intelligence available with them.

On Saturday, the Election Commission of India held a training
workshop on expenditure monitoring for political parties.
Representatives of all major political parties participated.

They were instructed about the rules, procedures and guidelines
issued by the Election Commission on expenditure monitoring of
contesting candidates and political parties.


Election Commission of India (ECI) has set up separate accounts wing to
keep a hawk’s eye on all assembly election related expenses - direct or
otherwise in Karnataka and special flying squads will monitor expenses, P
K Das, chairman of accounts vigilance committee has said.


CEC emphasises on stop money power in elections

Jaipur: Chief Election
Commissioner VS Sampath on Sunday sought active participation of people
and NGOs in ensuring free and fair polls.

Laying emphasis on the need to stop misuse of money and muscle power in
elections, he said that the Commission is taking measures to keep track
of candidates’ expenditures and tracking of constituencies, where cases
of misuse of money and muscle power are high.

Speaking at a conference here, Sampath sought public participation in checking irregularities at booth level.

Though the Commission forms squads to check irregularities at booths,
active role of NGOs and people is important in electoral reforms to
ensure free and fair polls, he said.


Stating that the Commission was taking measures to curb misuse of money,
Sampath expressed concern on paid news and said that such cases are
referred to the Press Council of India for further action.

Social activists Aruna Roy and Nikhil Dey were among others present
in the conference organised on electoral reforms by an organisation.

Over 500 companies of paramilitary forces for Karnataka polls

Bangalore: More than 500 companies of paramilitary forces — 50,000
personnel — will be required for the May five Assembly polls in
Karnataka, in addition to those drawn from the state police.

“We require more paramilitary forces as it is a single phase poll”,
Karnataka Chief Electoral Officer Anil Kumar Jha told a press conference
here today, adding “We require more than 500 companies”.

The Election Commission has convened a meeting with senior officials of
the Home and Railway ministries in New Delhi tomorrow to discuss the
issue, he said.

Jha said a Systematic Voters’ Education and Electoral Participation
(SVEEP) campaign would be conducted in the State to exhort the people to
participate in the poll process, particularly in Bangalore where the
poll percentage in the 2008 election was “not that much”.

He said an EC team, led by Chief Election Commissioner V S Sampath,
which interacted with representatives of political parties and also
Deputy Commissioners and Superintendents of Police here earlier this
month, would come to Bangalore again in a week’s time to review the
election preparedness.

Jha said the model code of conduct has come into force from last
evening and the Government would have put on hold all announcements, new
works and schemes and “every thing” barring in “emergency cases” such
as drought relief and drinking water. “No new work will take-off”.

Voters’ list is being revised continuously, and 1.65 lakh names have
been added to the earlier announced total electorate of 4.18 crore,
including 2.04 crore women.

Jha admitted that there are some errors in the voter database and
those are being corrected. “Already 43,000 such cases have been
corrected”.

Poll dole: Govt beat EC code with 5 sops

BANGALORE: It appears the
state government was indulging in a sop opera hours ahead of the
assembly poll schedule declared by the Election Commission on March 20.
Three more orders embedded with financial benefits and targeting select
sections were hastily issued by the urban development department to beat
the election code of conduct. This takes the total number of such
controversial orders to five.

Orders were issued to extend
Vajpayee Arogya Sri scheme to non-BPL (below poverty line) families in
BBMP limits. This decision got cabinet’s nod just a day before poll date
was announced. The scheme says around 2.72 lakh non-BPL families of
total 4.23 lakh families in BBMP limits would benefit from it. This was
approved despite health and family welfare and finance departments putting a note of dissent over extending the scheme to non-BPL families in BBMP limits.

Another order pertains to construction of a flyover at Kittur Rani
Chennamma circle in Padmanabhanagar, south of Bangalore. Padmanabhanagar
assembly segment is represented by deputy chief minister R Ashoka. The
third order allows leasing out 20,385 sq ft of space in Gavipuram, south
of Bangalore, to Adamya Chetana Foundation run by Tejaswini Ananth Kumar, wife of Bangalore South MP HN Ananth Kumar. The foundation caters mid-day meals to some government schools in the city.

The earlier two orders highlighted by TOI include leasing of a 62×93 sq
ft site in Sunkenahalli near Basavanagudi to Rastrothana Parishat, an
RSS wing and giving permission to the BBMP to invite tenders for nearly
Rs 115 crore worth of solid waste management contracts.

Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Anil Kumar Jha said he would seek an explanation from principal secretary of urban development department on these orders.



Jagatheesan Chandrasekharan (Bangalore)
This
is just a tip of the ice berg. Buying of votes era is nearing the end with
the ever rising prices of essential commodities.
In order to maintain equidistance from both Congress and BJP, which are
anti-humane and anti-development BSP collaborated with SDPI to contest
the assembly elections with a positive frame of mind to show they are a
different lot.

Karnataka BSP President Marasandra Muniappa said that people are fed up
with Congress, BJP, JDS and KJP and turning towards BSP and with the
colloboration of SDPI we will capture power in Karnataka.

Voters now will go to elect new leaders in Vidhana Soudha & have to
choose BSP ELEPHANT which is the only HOPE & ALTERNATIVE with its
policy to implement the CONSTITUTION for PEACE WELFARE & HAPPINESS
for the ENTIRE PEOPLE including SC/ST/OBC/RELIGIOUS MINORITIES and the
POOR UPPER CASTES by DISTRIBUTING THE WEALTH of this Country EQUALLY
among ALL SECTIONS of the SOCIETY.

Around 60 JD(S) workers including 10 leaders resign from primary
membership of the party in protest against failure by state JD(S)
leadership to act on their complaints of highhandedness by the district 
unit of the party headed by MB Sadashiva.
