crowd or community?

i'am becoming more and more lazyyyy and am simply finding it difficult to express myself in words.... and thus there is every possibilty of my blog becoming quiesce and voided.... but then ....expression isn't a slave of words .... is it?
definitely no....
so if i don't have words i can have something else to express myself.... like.... pictures ...voila!!!
though i'm not very good at it ( as if i'm good at words...:P) but still i'll give a try... after all pictures are worth a thousand words :) so ....

crowd or community???

(taken two weeks back when i went for an eye camp to this village uphills, amidst the tall mountains and high stnading hills it was amazing how the roads were carved, and there wasn't any populatin in sight for miles ahead but all of sudden there emerged this village out of nowhere, had to trek for half an hour to reach the site but once there, the fresh mountain air, the azur sky , the smell of lime n pine coming from the trees and those wonderfully warm people made it all worth it ..... and this particular arrangement of houses was pretty interesting and thus taking a snapshot was inevitable )

the doors in between

"there are things known
and there are things unknown
and in between are the doors"
Jim Morrison

(picture taken at the stupa of BAUDHA a budhist stupa, obviously, there were many panomaric views but these prayer wheels have been my favorite since i was a kid . ok for those who don't know much about these wheels here it is -
"Tibetan prayer wheels (called Mani wheels by the Tibetans) are devices for spreading spiritual blessings and well being. Rolls of thin paper, imprinted with many, many copies of the mantra (prayer) Om Mani Padme Hum, printed in an ancient Indian script or in Tibetan script, are wound around an axle in a protective container, and spun around and around. Typically, larger decorative versions of the syllables of the mantra are also carved on the outside cover of the wheel.

According to Tibetan Buddhist belief, spinning a prayer wheel is just as effective as reciting the sacred texts aloud. This belief derives from the Buddhist belief in the power of sound and the formulas to which deities are subject. For many Buddhists, the prayer wheel also represents the Wheel of the Law (or Dharma) set in motion by the Buddha. "
so these were some info gathered from various web pages, and from personal experience all i would say is that spinning them while walking around the periphery of a stupa amidst all the mantras being chanted by the monks offering their prayers and thousands of lamps lit in the honor of deity is a divine feeling )

life ia a wild horse

life is a wild horse.... difficult to tame.... very difficult infact!
hardly ever does it agree to us.... most of the times we fail miserable in taming it.
but i've learnt something , there definitely are ways to soften and conqure it, there definitely are ways to get things done your way and make life move your way, you at times have to be strict, at times a disciplinarian, at times tolerant too but the easiest way to take control is to put in love there.....
nothing is perfect and the better we realize the happier we are, perfection is a mirage man keeps chasing but never finds. why burden the poor life with the baggage of perfections, are we perfect in ourselves.... NO, then why expect life to be?
tame it with love, it will become your pet and a pet may never be perfect but still is loved for the simple way of how it is, so can't we love our life for how it is.... isn't it all so simple? :)

p.s.- i don't mind life being a wild horse at times, tell me the truth, who doesn't love wild once in a while? i do! ;)

nonsense yet again

i definitely have been very lazyyy and very stagnant, but that was yesterday, today is a different day, a new one, and it's not a new 'me' but definitely an improved 'me' and even if not improved, i don't care, as long as i feel happy to be myself.
i have stopped bothering about rights and wrongs, dos and don'ts..... who cares.... as long as my intentions are right and i don't intend to do any harm to anyone, i am free to do what i want to and tha's what exactly i am going to do now.... i'm going live it all in my way  :)
and the sky is so beautifully and blue and the sun is so happily out that i can't stop humming to myself
"sauda udano ka hai le le udane meri le mere par bhi le"
