Buddha Pournima


Let yourself be open and life will be easier. A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed. - Buddha

Every year this day, I will ask only one question to myself.

Why was I born on this day?

Is there some link missing?

If yes, what is that?


Thank you, mom

For all the strength & courage you give me,

For all the faith & Trust you have in me,
For dressing me down when I did mistakes,
For all the kudos from you for my silly and small achievements!

You are my super MOM, I Love You!




PS: My actual date of birth is yet to come :)

As i told over chat, You must be the Enlightened one!!

BTW Hope you had a nice MothersDay.
I dedicated a tamil song to my mom (ofcourse plagiarised from a film)

If you cant understand it, just look it up in the internet.

Mom is everything.

Hello, love the ambience here.
Nice to meet a gentle soul from the subcontinent. I have a niece (nice little mennonite girl)working in Dhamtari who has requested a couple of CDs that I burned and sent off; Monsoon Wedding and Bahane. She loves India.
I appreciate the serenity and gentleness here although I thrive in the rough and tumble free for all over at a possible gospel and others like it. We may look at life from different angles but we're both trying to get to the same place.
Toodaloo.

I really really like that quote and never read it before. I think I would have tried to incorporate it in into my "salt" post one or two posts back! Although actually I think it's addressing a spiritual reality which, although related, is distinct.

Guess Super mom is exactly the word I can use for my mom as well!

I read this somewhere on my friend's blog..."God couldn't be eveywhere... so he made mothers"

I don't think celebrating one day in a year as Mothers's Day is enough... In fact all the days of the year should be celebrated as Mothers' Day....

Whatever I have acheived today... It is all thanks to my mother...

Nabeel said...

u were just born on this day .. i mean .. i doubt that there is any significance on the day when someone is born .. perhaps u were born this day so you could see another day (another day later in life) .. no specific answer .. more important question is .. why were you born? To find one's purpose is the ultimate question

coolvir said...

Hey happy birthday in advance.
Btw...i was born on 30th jan...the day when gandhiji died...phew.

"We may look at life from different angles but we're both trying to get to the same place."

This is just so true...and it happens every now and then.

White Forest said...

Nabeel ...

Let me tell you something about my devastating anger!

When I was young studying in say 4-8 th standard...I was one arrogant child with lot of attitude ...and i used to get angry like hell for silly and stupid reasons...It didnt end just in anger ..i used to break watever i got in my hand... that was destructive anger!

But suddenly after a year or two...my mom put me through the yoga classes and meditation...though i did them jsut for the sake of it...i felt a lot of change and difference in me...

See wat my friends who know me describe me

http://kevan.org/johari?view=Rathna

PPl know me as calm person ( i feel thats an achievement for me though silly and small one) and ....i can see that could be soem effect of why i was born on the day of buddha pournima!

But still i ask myself this question every year..."Why was i born on the day of buddha pournima"!

And Yes I agree..."To find one's purpose is the ultimate question "

I am Yet to find the purpose why i was born!

White Forest said...

Coolvir...

Thanks :)

Did you ask yourself why ? :P

White Forest said...

Thanks Manhar :)

Known Stranger said...

mom was there at my apartment for two days on their way from nepal. I gavbe a hug and said mom i love you amidst every difference of opinioon i have with you.

she was uncomfortable with my hug as well that i experessed i love her. she felt.. what happened to me

White Forest said...

But I am sure..she will always want the best for her son...though she doesnt believe/expect anything in return!

And i am also sure ...that next time you express your love ...she wouldnt be surprised or think wat happnd to you :D

Just keep expressing your love for her...and dont expect instant expression from her...It will take time to break her mindset and show similar expression!
