LESSON 5

 

Exercise 3

 

Compare: 1.           Declension
– ending between masculine

and neuter gender

 

Gender

Generally, a given noun is either
masculine, feminine, or neuter. It will not be masculine in one context, and
feminine in another context. There are some exceptions.

A neuter plural subject may have a
singular verb.
There is an exception to the rule requiring that the subject
and verb agree in number. This is it.
 

A Declension is an inflection pattern
for nouns and adjectives. Verbs are conjugated, nouns are declined.

The 2nd declension is often
introduced first because it is the easiest to learn. Most 2nd declension nouns
are masculine or neuter.

 

 

2,   Conjunction –
ending between present

and future tense.

 

Conjunction — A word used to join other words or phrases together into
sentences.

 

Present tense — The form of language used to refer to an event,
transaction, or occurrence which is happening now (or at the present time), or
an object that currently exists

 

First-future tense — The first-future tense is that which expresses
what will take place hereafter.

What is the sacred text (Holy Book) of Buddhists?

The sacred book of
Buddhism is called the Tripitaka (called Tipitaka in Pali). It is also called
the Pali Canon, after the language in which it was first written.

It is written in an ancient Indian language called Pali which
is very close to the language that the Buddha himself spoke. The Tripitaka is a
very large book. The English translation of it takes up nearly forty volumes.

Buddhism is based on Buddha’s teachings. At first these were
passed down by word of mouth and later were complied into two sets of
scripture. One set by Council of Monks of the Theravada school (the Tripitaka)
the other by the Mahayana school ( the Sutras). Both were similar.

Both Theravada and Mahayana Buddhists generally accept the
Tripitaka (called Tipitaka in Pali) as the Buddhist sacred writings.

The three section of the Tripitaka (three baskets of Wisdom)
are

  1. Vinaya Pitaka (the Discipline
    Basket) - A rule book for monks and nuns
    There are 227 rules for monks,and more for nuns.
  2. Sutta Pitaka (the Teaching
    Basket)- The actual experiences of Buddha
  3. Abhidhamma Pitaka (the Higher
    Doctrine Basket)- An explanation on the teaching of Buddha. Most of these
    are called Sutras

Parts of the Tripitaka such as the Dhamma-pada and the
Sutta-Nipata are among the most expressive religious books in the world.

India has 74,000 newspapers, Uttar Pradesh leads -

(Each and every BSP Cadre must become a news paper to take the message of Sarvajan Hitaya Sarvajan Sukhaya as advised by Manyawar Kanshi Ram Ji)


NEW DELHI - Bucking the global recessionary trends in the media,
India, the world’s most populous democracy, boasts of 74,000 newspapers
- with Uttar Pradesh leading the rest of the country in promoting a
diversity of views.

“More than 74,000 newspapers are registered with the Registrar of
Newspapers for India (RNI),” Minister of State for Information and
Broadcasting Mohan Jatua said in a written reply during question hour
in the Lok Sabha Tuesday.

Uttar Pradesh has the maximum number of registered newspapers at
11,789, followed by Delhi with 10,066 and Maharashtra with 9,127,
according to the information given by the minister.

The government is also trying to bridge the “media gap” by
encouraging more newspapers to come up in the northeastern states, the
information and broadcasting ministry said in a separate statement.

The ministry has also relaxed norms for empanelling newspapers published in the northeastern states and the border areas.

This apart, Rs.87.95 crore has been allocated during fiscal 2009-10
for the North East Special Package, the statement said, adding: “An
amount of Rs.37.00 crore is to be provided as grants-in-aid and an
amount of Rs.50.95 crore as loan to Prasar Bharati for improving radio
and television facility in the North East.”

Inauguration of Memorial Park with the installation of statues in Lucknow, the capital of the Indian State of Uttar Pradesh (UP).

She may not have made it to the prime ministerial chair after the
country’s April-May parliamentary elections. But India’s best known
woman Aboriginal Inhabitant of Jambudviap, that is, the Great Prabuddha Vharath (SC) and Sarvajan  leader, Ms Mayawati, chief minister of the country’s
largest state Uttar Pradesh, continues to hog the headlines. She does
so both in and out of parliament. If last week it was a Congress
leader’s remarks against her that held Mayawati in the media limelight,
earlier this week her party MPs did it for her in Parliament.

Members of her Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) stormed into the well of
parliament’s both houses – Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha -  to nosily
protest against reported downgrading of security cover to the party
supremo. 

 India has an elaborate government security apparatus. The National
Security Guard (SPG) was set up in  1984 for anti-hijack and
anti-terror operations. It  has two wings–the Special Action Group
(SAG), comprising army personnel on deputation, and the Special Rangers
Group (SRG), comprising personnel from the  Indo Tibetan Border Police
(ITBP), the Central Industrial Security Force( CISF), the Central
Reserve Police Force(CRPF) and the Border Security Force (BSF). More
than half of SRG has been diverted to VIP security.

 VIP security is subdivided into five tiers — SPG for those at the
top of the heap, followed by the Z-plus, Z, Y and X categories. Z-plus
security is provided by NSG `black cats’ consisting of six personal
security officers, two head constables, 12 constables, one escort and
one pilot vehicle. Thirty politicians like L K Advani, Mayawati,
Narendra Modi and Jayalalithaa are provided this cover. The pyramid
gets wider at the lower level of security — 68 VIPs get Z category
protection, 243 get Y category and 81 X category.

 This is in addition to the Special Protection Group (SPG) that is
exclusively meant for providing security to the PM, former PMs and
members of the Nehru-Gandhi family. Interestingly, the SPG budget for
2008-09 is Rs 180 crore, up from Rs 117 crore the previous year, while
the 2008-09 budget for NSG, which is meant to protect over a billion
people from terror, is Rs 158 crore, down from Rs 159 crore the
previous year. It’s not only the SPG and NSG that protect our leaders.
Every state diverts a sizeable number of policemen for VIP security. In
Delhi, where the number of self-important politicians is highest, as
many as 14,200 policemen have been deployed on round-the-clock VIP
security duty.

 Even former home minister Shivraj Patil, who one report described
as “facing no threat, not even from a fly”, enjoys elaborate security
that is extended to his family members as well.

 There is also another aspect of private security involving the life
and property of captains of industry. Because of thereat  to the life
of general public and public property emanating from terrorism, the
general security industry is flourishing in India. It is estimated that
private security in India will become a Rs 50,000 crore ( About 1200
million US dollars) industry by 2012  as corporates have increased
their spending on safeguards after the Mumbai terror strikes. According
to the Association of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry
(Assocham), corporate houses would raise their security budgets by
35-40 per cent. The private security business, a Rs 22,000 crore
industry now, would touch Rs 50,000 crore as security all of a sudden
has become top priority for Indian Inc. The industry, which has been
growing at 25 per cent over the past 5-7 years, would achieve a growth
rate of 125 per cent by 2012.

 Since a lot of industrial expansion, especially in the
infrastructure sector, would take place during the current Five-Year
Plan, the cost of security gadgets that need to be imported will work
out to Rs 20,000 crore in the next two years. Assocham also says the 
demand for security gadgets has also increased in educational
institutions, hospitals, shopping malls and business centres.

 It is expected that over 200,000  security professionals would be
required in industrial installations in the next few years as no
industrial house henceforth can afford to take security lightly, says
Assocham General Secretary D S Rawat. “Foreign security companies have
also started assessing Indian markets for sale of gadgets,” he said
adding the government should cut import duty on security gadgets by
about 50 per cen
t.

Untouchability high in Gulbarga, Uttara Kannada

Prashanth G N, TNN 28 July 2009, 03:19am IST


BANGALORE: The shocking catalogue of intolerance of dalits —
manifested in the form of untouchability — that we carried in these
columns on Monday
includes two districts in Karnataka: Uttara Kannada and Gulbarga. As
borne out in a survey by the National Law School of India University,
Bangalore, this decadent practice extends to barring dalits from using
public borewells.

Even 60 years after independence, zero untouchability still remains a
dream. “It is still the archaic way of life there,’’ S Japhet,
director, Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policy, told TOI.

The old practices of dalits not being employed as priests or allowed
to enter temples during common village festivals still persist. Among
the most frequent forms of untouchability, dalits have restricted
access to public sources of water. Another sore point is a bar on
entry into non-dalit homes.

In some areas, dalit homes are located on the border of the village,
which is also a predominant form of outcasting. “This is a strong
phenomenon in Gulbarga, though it is present in other districts,”
Japhet said.

Untouchability has been reported from the villages of Bommanahalli and
Varangere in Gulbarga and, to a lesser degree, from the villages of
Karki and Morba in Uttara Kannada.

The trends are similar in other parts of the state as well. Some
southern districts are, in fact, stronger in their
untouchability quotient compared to even Uttara Kannada district.

The sample size could have been increased but for resource
constraints. The survey and study was commissioned by the Centre in
which Karnataka has been studied in a total of six states, 22 villages
and 12 districts across the country.

Untouchability of Scheduled caste people still alive in Indian countryside: report




www.chinaview. cn 2009-07-27 16:26:45




NEW DELHI, July 27 (Xinhua) — Untouchability of Scheduled caste people


is still alive in India’s countryside although fear of law and rising

untouchability said recently that villages, the den of this decadent


practice, are far from being zero-untouchability zones.




The survey results came from villages of the states of Andhra


Pradesh, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and West


Bengal, said the report.




As many as 516 of a total of 648 Schedueled Castes people,


surveyed said they were not allowed to enter Hindu temples while 151


said they were not allowed to take out processions of their Hindu


deities, said the report.




Meanwhile,
Schedueled Castes participation in social activities has improved,

with 591 invited for wedding feasts. But 29 percent said they had to


wait for others to finish eating before they can eat.




According to the survey, 7 percent of
Schedueled Castes said they were barred

from entering main streets of villages while 7 percent said they could


not wear sandals and walk in front of a dominant caste member. Nine


percent said they had to talk with folded hands, according to the


report.

A NEW RELIGIOUS ORDER…!

 

The
new American missionary recruits to the Asian
 
countries put down their heads as their leader entered the room.
“You have been chosen,” thundered the leader as the heads looked up
at him with awe, “to go into the countries of Asia and win souls.”
“Amen,” shouted the recruits as they bowed their heads down to the
ground and then looked up at their leader.


“Many
years ago, in leaking ships and in cramped conditions your forefathers went and
converted the heathen of those lands.” “Amen,” said the new
recruits in unison.


“Now
it is your turn to bring them back into our fold again.”


“Amen,”
murmured the new recruits.


“You
will be viewed intially with suspicion and distrust, but as you open your good books
there will be a dramatic change.”

“Amen,”
said the recruits.


“Luckly
for you this good book will be thinner then the one your forefathers had to
carry. But when you finish with the book another one will be ready for you and
another and another and with the book you will capture the hearts of the
heathen.”


“Amen,”
said the new recruits together.


“Remember,”
said the American leader. “that it is to our god that they will finally
have to bend their knees. We do not wnat their heathen pagan gods anymore. You
will have to see that everyone, every single one of them accept the one we
worship.”


“Amen,”
murmured the new recruits.


“You
will be given ample funds to build worship places to house our great god. Build
them well and strong and with pillars that will house underground places of
worship too.”


“Amen,”
said the new recruits.


“You
may now all rise and bow to the all powerful god who is just waiting to convert
the people of the whole Asia. A god who will change their lives and in the
process make our lives sweeter. Rise every one.”

The
new recruits rose and raised their heads reverently as the curtain behind their
leader drew apart. They with their leader knelt and raised their hands in
prayer to the picture of the god they revered and worshipped.”

The
spotlight shone on the single dollar bill that glowed
  in power and glory from its place centre
stage. The recrutis and their leader remained raised their hands in praise and
supplication.

The
leader voice rang out again.


“This
is the model of the place of worship,” and the spotlight shone on the bank
building.”


“Amen,”
said the new recruits with awe.


“And
here are your good books, use them well to bring those nations to us,”
said the leader as he distributed cheque books to all the recruits
present.”


“Amen,”
said the new missionary recruits as they stuffed their cheque books into their
briefcases and rose to head to their new Asian fields to bring their dollar god
to the poor rupee nations…!

Dear friends,
 
How come a stained person talk of purity?
 
RSS, VHP, Shudra Modi, BJP, ABVD are the product of the same
foxy/cunning ideology for 100yeras. Fox will produce foxes only. This
group lacks credibility. How come murderes talk of civility?
 
Our Budhist watch group must keep pressure on Modi and his clan
that they don’t hijack Budhism and don’t propogate Hindu ideology/
philosophy of Hindu version of karma.They want to gain respectibility.
A dogs tail will always be crooked , can’t be straightened even if you
put it in a straight tube.for 20years.
 
Our Buddhist country leadership needs to be educated about the
cunningness of this group who may be attempting to contaminate
Budhism.And showing that Buddhism is nothong but a part of Hinduism like
Jainism, Sikhism and other sects in India.
 
So be on your guard and watch their moves.
 
When truth is asleep, lies become alive.

A Permanent Online International Seminar on Buddhism and Buddhist Heritage of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath

Let all Buddhist individuals, Ambedkarite and Buddhist Internet Groups plan for a permanent online International Seminar on Buddhism and Buddhist Heritage of Jambudvipa, that is, the Great Prabuddha Bharath for the benefit  of our Buddhist country leadership  to be educated and give the correct picture about the
cunningness of this group who may be attempting to contaminate
Buddhism.and showing that Buddhism is nothing but a part of Hinduism like
Jainism, Sikhism and other sects in India.The best solution is to practice Dhamma by all of us apart from preaching the same.

http://sarvajan.ambedkar.org
and
www.buddhismand business.webs.com
has already started such activities. Others may also please join and send valuable information on Buddhism and also start as many websites as possible to propagate Buddha and His Dhamma in his own words.

  Let us

*CALL FOR PAPERS*

Buddhism,
that propagates the doctrine and practice of *DHAMMACAKHAPAVATANA*, had made wider changes in the
social and cultural scenes in Jambudvipa and of ancient Asia in general, and South Asia
and Southeast Asia in particular.

Let us “learn and practice the art of giving (Dana/Generosity by helping others) for a happy living.
“Learn and Practice Sila (Cultivate Morality by observing the Five Precepts)
1. I do not want to be killed by others, so I will not kill others.
2. I do not want my things to be stolen by others, so I will not take waht is not give.
3. I do not want my husband/wfe to be taken away by others, so I will not indulge in such sexual misconduct
4. I dot want others to tell lies or false speach to me, so I will not do the same.
5. I will abstain from the abusive consumption of intoxicants and drugs for I amy be prompted to violate all or any of the abobe precepts.

Let us “learn and practice Bhavana to acquire wisdom through meditation”

The subsequent periods
that witnessed several ups and downs for this religious sect under the
patronage of several rulers. The regions denoted as the present day
political India, in its past that practiced Buddhism, which
flourished ever since the days of
Ashoka, the Mauryan emperor.

Let us propagate the Large number of archaeological evidence in
the form of inscriptions, *stupas*, *chaitya* *grahas*, *viharas*,
sculptures and images from various parts of Prabuddha Bharath stand as a
testimony to the wide spread of Buddhism in Prabuddha Bharath. Accounts of
Chinese travellers, Hiuen-tsang and I-tsing.


Although such a
rich heritage of Buddhism is present in Prabuddha Bharath, many of its attributes
and its wider impact on the society  needs to be brought to
limelight. This can only be achieved by situating Prabuddha Bharath in the map of
the Buddhist world. Therefore, the Government of Prabuddha Bharath in
collaboration with all Buddhist Countries organse a permanent online international seminar which will highlight the Buddhist
traditions of Prabuddha Bharath.

Such an  online  international seminar on Buddhism may aims at:

(i)            appreciating the Buddhist past of Prabuddha Bharath through a series of discourses on its archaeology and history,

(ii)           highlighting the contributions of Buddhism and its philosophy to the culture and society of Prabuddha Bharath,

(iii)         promoting documentation and research on Buddhist materials and places in Prabuddha Bharath, and

(iv)         conserving and preserving Buddhist sites and pilgrimage centres in Prabuddha Bharath..

(v)      Start pre schools for kids of world class to teach Buddhist moral science. “Catch them Young and Teach them Young”.

(vi)    Train people to practice trade and Business - the Buddhist way.Let Buddhists have a wholesome desire to become rich in order to spread Dhamma by building huge Viharas, stupas etc for propagating Buddhism

(vii)   Start world class media for the propagation of all the above.

Above all let us put all our efforts to see that BSP captures power at the centre, so that the process of spreading Dhamma will become faster for the welfare and happiness of all in Prabudha and ultimately the the entire Prabuddha Prapanch.

Such an online international seminar will focus on four major themes:

  • the archaeology and history of Buddhism
  • the Philosophy of Buddhism
  •  Conserving the Buddhist Heritage and
  • Developing Buddhist Tourism in Prabuddha Bharath.

Along with the online
International Seminar and scientific deliberations, let us  plan to
have philosophical lectures by spiritual leaders and an exhibition of
development of Buddhism in Prabudha Bharath. 

The venue of the
seminar, *will be the Internet* which has the unique
fortune of preserving the holy relics of Buddha. The online International
Conference will be on * A Permanent Basis*. The conference will be
followed by field visits and tours to archaeological sites of Buddhist
influence in Prabuddha Bharath.

Let us keep sending our papers/articles based on
any of the aforesaid themesto all the Internet groups.

Let us all find participation in the seminar not only of
academic significance but also will give us an opportunity to put
philosophical, religious as well as tourist flavour.

Let us find out ways and means to meet at all the main Buddhist places like Lumbini, Buddha Gaya, Saranath, Kushinara, Jetavana, Savatti, Nalanda Univeraity etc. that is being orgasnised annulayy by the Mahabodhi Society, Bangalore.

If we all make up our mind, no force on the earthcan stop us from achieving the above goal.
