THERE’S A VOICE THAT DOESN’T USE WORDS,LISTEN!

Every human in this universe is enforced to fight many battles in life at various stages of his journey. These battles beget a lot of angst and compel a person to look for solutions.

“There’s a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen,” Rumi says. If one is able to truly comprehend, then many life battles can be won with the utmost ease.

Our inner voice, or the consciousness as it is known, communicates with us each moment, guiding us at every juncture of our life, and it depends entirely on us as to how soon we are able to sense this silent voice and are able to follow it. This voice does not speak words, but if we start acknowledging its presence, then we can clearly hear the message it wants to convey and can make it our guiding force. This awareness can brighten each moment in our lives in a way which is truly unthinkable.

The fact is that this eternal voice is there in every living as well as non-living being, but few are able to recognise it, and those few are truly fortunate because envisaging the presence of this eternal voice is not an easy task at all—one has to train and make oneself worthy of it. Coming to the stage where one is able to listen to this voice calls for immense devotion, faith and righteousness.

In life, we all are governed or influenced by the three modes of material nature—goodness, passion and ignorance. As long as we are only engrossed in the mode of passion and ignorance, we will not be able to reach the point of awakening. It is only through practice that we are able to upgrade ourselves to the mode of goodness and maintain that mode where we are able to listen to this internal voice. And the day this starts happening, we are on the right path—the one that takes us to our final destination, the abode of God that takes us out from the cycle of birth and death. Life becomes smoother by listening to this positive voice coming from within. We get correct guidance, which prevents us from taking wrong decisions and deters us from becoming a part of any conflict.

This voice brings us closer to God, making us strong and fearless. We are always cocooned in the shell that God creates for us in order to keep us away from any harsh situations. Living in the shadow of God is similar to living like a child who is totally dependent on the parents for all the needs and knows that whatever the situation may be, there will always be unconditional protection and support.

The Bhagavad Gita, verse 6.25 says, “Gradually, step by step, one should become situated in trance by means of intelligence sustained by full conviction, and thus the mind should be fixed on the self alone and should think of nothing else.”

Another verse, 6.23 says, “In the stage of perfection called trance, one’s mind is completely controlled. The stage is characterised by one’s ability to see the self by the pure mind and to relish and rejoice in the self. In that joyous state, one is situated in boundless transcendental happiness, realised through transcendental senses. Established thus, one never departs from the truth, and upon gaining this he thinks there is no greater gain. Being situated in such a position, one is never shaken even in the midst of greater difficulty. This indeed is actual freedom from all miseries arising from material contact.”

Hence, it is of utmost importance that one should make constant self-analysis and improvements in one’s conduct to reach the stage of recognising the internal voice, follow its directions and transform one’s life into a happy, ideal and fruitful one.

‘ROOH-E-RUMI’-Seeking God is Seeking Love

Welcome to the world ‘RUMI’– the 13th Century Persian poet.

A B O U T   R U M I 

Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rumi popularly known as Rumi was a 13th-century persian mystic poet whose writings have never ceased to influence the word to this date. Rumi’s works are written mostly in Persian, but occasionally he also used Turkish, Arabic, and Greek in his verse. His Mathnawī, composed in Konya, is considered one of the greatest poems of the Persian language. He is regarded as one of the most popular and accomplished poets of all times, and he has been best selling poet in the United States of America. Rumi’s work is so relevant to the modern day world that it trends on internet even to this date. His poems have been widely translated into many of the world’s languages and transposed into various formats.  

His Masnavi (Mathnawi), composed in Konya, is considered one of the greatest poems of the Persian language. The Masnavi, or Masnavi-i-Ma’navi, also written Mesnevi, Mathnawi or Mathnavi, is an extensive poem written in Persian. It is one of the best known and most influential works of Sufism. The Masnavi is a series of six books of poetry that together amount to around 25,000 verses or 50,000 lines. It is a spiritual text that teaches Sufis how to reach their goal of being truly in love with God. 

His works are widely read today in their original language across Greater Iran and the Persian-speaking world. Translations of his works are very popular, most notably in Turkey, Azerbaijan, the United States and South Asia. His poetry has not only influenced Persian literature, but also Turkish, Ottoman Turkish, Azerbaijani as well as the literature of some other Turkic, Iranian and Indo-Aryan languages including Chagatai, Urdu and Pashto. 

Rumi believed passionately in the use of music, poetry and dance as a path for reaching God. For Rumi, music helped devotees to focus their whole being on the divine and to do this so intensely that the soul was both destroyed and resurrected. It was from these ideas that the practice of whirling Dervishes developed into a ritual form.

Rooh-E-Rumi is a compilation of author’s spiritual realizations led by her own experiences of life, and interprets them in two themes – “God” and “Love”. 

Life itself is an ironical battle of sorts, where we strive hard to control and win the world but often fail to control our own lives. Most of us praise spirituality but fail to follow it and recognize its potential in the true sense; the reason-we chase false goals but never attempt to chase the true light that rests within. 

The author’s prescription to win the story of life in three distinct ways:  

  • Through self-realization,  
  • Embracing love, which is the language of the universe, and 
  • Surrendering to the Supreme Power. 

Rooh-e-Rumi presents many thought-provoking selections of Rumi, the famous thirteenth-century Persian poet. The quotes and their commendable spiritual interpretations attempted by the author will guide the readers to discover their own link to the experience of love and the unhindered path to spiritual enlightenment. 

The book is a self-help book in the genre of spirituality and seeking respite from the confusion of an individual in the material world and is a way to impart solace for those believing in seeking help from the spiritual existence of the divine power. The thought-provoking selections of Rumi’s quotes and their commendable spiritual interpretations done by the author will ensure readers to discover their own link to spiritual enlightenment. 

Book Review by Established Authors –  

Oswald Pereira, veteran journalist and best-selling author of eight books “In this soul-stirring, deep and insightful book, Mamta Sehgal beautifully expounds Rumi’s thoughts on divine love. A must read for Rumi’s followers and all those who believe that God is love.” 

Santosh Srivastava, Co-Author, The Gita Way “Mamta Sehgal proves again her deep insight in the subject of spirituality. This book is a crucial pivot on the way we understand devotion.

YEARNING FOR AN IDEAL END..

Losing someone dear in life is tragic and it is difficult to bear such a loss; which remains etched in the memory for times to come. Every human being desires to always remain in the shadow of the dear ones and wishes that he/she never loses them, but that is not how it is meant to be. We all must understand that in the wake of our emotions we cannot become selfish; thinking of just our loss and not thinking what the other person might go thru. Ideally speaking no one should get into any kind of suffering; physical or psychological, because it is difficult to bear it. The physical suffering comes out of the bodily pains and the degeneration that occurs because of natural ageing. While the psychological pains occur because of the inability to be self-dependent.

All of us spend our entire life on our own terms, with a set pattern of living; which is full of rigidities and is strictly within our own thinking gamut, but then there might come a time in life when we may have to undergo drastic physical changes that leaves us dependent on others; bringing us to the worst stage of life. It is an agony both for the sufferer and for the ones who are fostering them. The irony is that no money or power can prevent this from happening if it is destined to happen. Money can give best treatment and care but it cannot prevent the fated. No matter who you are or how resourceful you are, everyone has to pay back for what they have done in this life or in the past.

When we are in our prime, we never realize the wrongs that we keep committing each hour. We never contemplate the repercussions of our wrong-doings in this life or in the past. But when we reach the later stages of our life and are gripped by illness, that is the time ,we are forced to think on this subject. The worst though is that most of the people don’t have such realizations even after facing immense turbulence in life.

An ideal person, who has always indulged in good karmas, has a pious thought process, has the true awareness of the realities of life and is a firm believer of God, never gets into the suffering mode and gets a peaceful end. He has to never depend on anyone and is able to take care of the self till the last day of life. And that is what an ideal death is; a person lives a fulfilling life and receives a befitting end. The complete surrender and belief in God makes sure that there is no suffering in life or even at the end and one gets a respectable death and embraces the same with utter grace.

We should eulogize such deaths and pray to God that even we receive such an end, where there is no suffering and no dependence on anybody till the last breath we breathe.

Mamta Sehgal.
