Perceiving God

Today i heard a great story about a dialogue between Hanuman and Ramachandra from Indian epic(itihasa) Ramayana.

This story beautifully explains the relationship between Self and God.

Rama(considered as God by Hanuman) asks Hanuman (representing a devotee), “How do you perceive me as?”

Hanuman replies beautifully as:

Deha Buddhyatu Dasoham
Jiva Buddhya Tvadamsakah |
Atma Buddhya Tvamevaham
Iti me nishchita matih ||

“Oh Lord, while I identify myself with my body, I am your servant.

When I consider myself as Individual Soul, I am Your part.

But when I look upon myself as the Spirit, I am one with You.”

What a beautiful explanation by Hanuman!!👌🙏

Indian design elements

Traditional indian design is more driven by nature and using harmony. We typically find it manifest in both form and function aspects of the designs.

We can see that in building design methodology of vastu shastra using natural forces in design. Also the famous women indian wear called ‘sari’ with natural motifs.

Symmetry and cyclical design elements also are dominant in indian design perhaps driven by its deep spiritual and philosophical background weaved into most of the life choices in traditional India.

Nature, symmetry, cyclical, fractal, harmony are the themes that come to my mind.

Diversity and Inclusion

Human thoughts when expansive will lead to an inclusive mind. The basis of this is in improving basic human ethics. We all know that no two human beings are equal/identical especially in the physical world (metaphysical and spiritual domains are a different space where it starts and ends with equality). The talk of inclusion by focusing only on divisions sometimes lead to more fractures if one is not careful. We need to create the culture of equanimity and harmony both in business and society by first building on the ethics. Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.

Most of the modern day scientists are humble enough to accept that they have barely scratched the surface. But, egoistic enough to disagree that some of the ancient philosophers had made better progress and cracked the code for the universe and humanity better. – Venky Rao
