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 

let Goddess Saraswathi bestows us with love of learning …..

ziggyWallpaper5_1280x960

Found out mercy in every sunrise
I am born again from the womb of the night
All I have I have left behind
Minds eye,  eyes eye a light will shine

There’s a rainbow in the sky all the time
Don’t be blind, don’t be blind

Reggae has a philosophy, you know?

It’s not just entertainment.

There’s an idea behind it,

a way of life behind the music,

which is a positive way of life,

which is a progressive way of life for better people.

I’m a big reader.

My kids love reading,

and

I think it’s important,

not just for development but for bonding.

You start reading to kids before they can even understand

what you’re saying to them,

so

I look at it as a fundamental tool for connection.

: ram0ram footnotes :

love the expression Womb of the night ……

WOMB ….

OM is the soul of womb …..

also is the soul of Bomb …..

so God is neutral both in creation and destruction …..

but God accepts creation but does not refuse destruction …..

be the nature of God ….. so accept rainbow of creativity …..

listen to song ……Rainbow in the sky ….. click on this line 

listen to new album ” FLY RASTA ” ….. click on this line

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.

|| iti srimad vallabha-acarya viracitam madhurastakam sampurnam ||

|| Thus ends the the eight stanza hymn madhurastakam composed by Sripad Vallabha-acharya ||

Click on above photo to listen 

The Madhurastakam (Sanskrit: मधुराष्टकम्, madhurāṣṭakam) is a beautiful Sanskrit composition in devotion of Lord Krishna, composed by the Hindu Bhakti philosopher-poet Sripad Vallabha Acharya. Sripad Vallabhacharya flourished under the patronage of the Vijayanagar King Sri Krishnadevarya in the late fifteenth century Andhra State and created many other literary pieces including the Vyasa Sutra Bhashya, Jaimini Sutra Bhasya, Bhagavata Tika Subodhini, Pushti Pravala Maryada and Siddhanta Rahasya in Sanskrit.

The devotional hymn “Madhurastakam” of Sri Vallabhacarya was created to lead the devotee in Pustimarg, the Path of Grace, which involves a constant love-filled devotion to Krishna by various acts of homage, such as singing (kirtana), remembering (smarana), conceptualizing and beholding (darshana) a beatific image of the deity upon singing of the Madhurastakam, and offering of services (seva). These acts enable the devotee to enter into the divine presence of Sri Krishna and to experience the Lord’s real essence (svarupa) which are in fact, succinctly laid down by the Madhurastakam. Hence, Madhurastakam plays an instrumental role in the realization of the Lord.

When I think about it baby (baby)
All I can do is shake my head
Cause there ain’t no explanation, no reason (baby)
Oh you must be heaven sent
With your crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy love (your crazy love)
Boy you got me so messed up, so messed upNow all I know is your love
I tear up when I think about you, boy
You’ve got me so emotional
But when I cry now, they’re all tears of joy You gotta, you gotta, you gotta understand baby (baby)
I’ve been through so many things
My heart has seen the ups the downs, the highs and the lows (baby)
And every pain life brings
But now I got your crazy, crazy, crazy love (your crazy love)
And all I wanna do now is sing
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, I just wanna sing for you babyNow all I know is your love
I tear up when I think about you, boy
You’ve got me so emotional
But when I cry now, they’re all tears of joySaid I’m crying
I’m crying now, but it’s not like before
Baby these are tears of joy
They’ve been the same since you walked through my door
Baby these are tears of joy

 

Now all I know is your love

I tear up when I think about you, boy

You’ve got me so, so emotional

But when I cry now, they’re all tears of joy

Look how you got me crying

Every day and every night baby

I’m crying now, but it’s not like before

Baby these are tears of joy

They’ve been the same since you walked through my door

Baby these are tears of joy

Baby these are tears of joy

Lyrics

Cover my eyes , Cover my ears

Tell me these words are a lie

It can’t be true
That I’m losing you
The sun cannot fall from the sky

Can you hear heaven cry
Tears of an angel
Tears of an angel
Tears of an angel
Tears of an angel.

Stop every clock
Stars are in shock
The river will flow to the sea
I wont let you fly
I wont say goodbye
I wont let you slip away from me

Can you hear heaven cry
Tears of an angel
Tears of an angel
Tears of an angel
Tears of an angel.

So hold on
Be strong
Every day hope will grow
I’m here, don’t you fear

Little one don’t let go oh oh oh
Don’t let go oh oh oh
Don’t let go oh oh oh
Cover my eyes
Cover my ears
Tell me these words are a lie

Tears of God

Lyrics

Some had on the Rebel grey, Some the Union blue,
They were fathers sons and brothers, men like me and you.
Engaged in heavy battle, till there came that cloudy draw,
When silence took the battlefield men just stood in awe.Some say it was the cannon smoke some say the Northern lines,
That cast a ghostly image over Fredericksburg that night,
Some say it was God’s spirit lookin’ o’er the bloody sod,
But that rainbow mist that filled the sky, was the tears of God.Both sides read his Holy Word and believed it in their hearts,
But the common ground He’d blessed them with had now been torn apart.
Covered by the blood they shed so many lost their lives,
The fight on that Virginia hill was enough to make Him cry.Some say it was the cannon smoke some say the Northern lines,
That cast a ghostly image over Fredericksburg that night,
Some say it was God’s spirit looking o’er the bloody sod,
But the rainbow mist that filled the sky, was the tears of God.

Some say it was the cannon smoke some say the Northern lines,
That cast a ghostly image over Fredericksburg that night,
Some say it was God’s spirit lookin o’er the bloody sod,
But the Rainbow mist that filled the sky,

was

the tears of God.
