love of learning

“If we succeed in giving the love of learning, the learning itself is sure to follow.”

― John Lubbock,

(30 April 1834 – 28 May 1913)

Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea,

are excellent schoolmasters,

and

teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.
John Lubbock

what is love of learning …….

love is a yearning  of our inner core to explore our origin

for that we need to learn from nature or in the classroom ……

beauty is the essence of our learning from nature …..

and

creativity is essence of classroom teaching to explore nature ….

what we understand as modern science

or

express what we observe into performing arts or forming arts  ……

creativity is science of spirituality where we share our love of learning

in

different ways of individual expressions .

LEARN has EAR in center ……

Ear is an organ works 24 x 7  and gives us sense of time

and at the same time art of listening to listen timeless …….

Indian classical music is basically art of listening timeless

so are the music around the globe

Indian way is a visual expression ……. learning can be made interesting by way of visual communication or by story telling ……. which brings love of learning ….look at the picture and as you will contemplate on it ……. the picture will start talking to you with its hidden meaning

Saraswati is the Goddess of learning, knowledge, and wisdom. The Sanskrit word sara means “essence” and swa means “self.” Thus Saraswati means “the essence of the self.”

Saraswati is represented in Hindu mythology as the divine consort of Lord Brahma, the Creator of the universe. Since knowledge is necessary for creation, Saraswati symbolizes the creative power of Brahma. 

The lotus is a symbol of the Supreme Reality,  By sitting on a lotus, Saraswati signifies that She is Herself rooted in the Supreme Reality, and symbolizes supreme knowledge.

The white color symbolizes purity and knowledge. The white sari that the Goddess is wearing denotes that She is the embodiment of pure knowledge.

each object in the picture signifies wisdom , wisdom and wisdom , …… explore

Bab ‘Aziz: The Prince Who Contemplated His Soul

Bab ‘Aziz: The Prince Who Contemplated His Soul, is easily one of the most visually rich film of recent time based on Sufi theme.

The title is from the main character, Baba Aziz, a very old blind dervish who is on his way to a place unknown where a rare Sufi gathering is to take place.

Guiding him across a sea of sand is his granddaughter Ishtar, a little girl who loves her grandpa but who is afraid they might never reach their destination,

all the more as the meeting is organized only once every thirty years. But Bab’Aziz is undeterred. He knows that if he “listens to the infinite silence of the desert with his heart” he will find the place. While making their way, Bab’Aziz tells Ishtar ……

18 week 2014

But where is this gathering?

– I don’t know, my little angel.

But do the others know?

– No, they don’t know either.

How can you go to a gathering without knowing where it is ?

– It suffices to walk, just walk. 

Those who are invited will find the way.
