ततः परं ब्रह्मपरं बृहन्तं यथानिकायं सर्वभूतेषु गूढम्। विश्वस्य एक परिवेष्टितारमीशं तं ज्ञात्वा अमृता भवन्ति ॥ 7 ॥            You are the Supreme Brahman, infinite, yet hidden in the hearts of all creatures. You pervade everything. They, who know You, are free from the cycle of birth, death and rebirth. (Svetasvatara 3 : 7)            परमात्मा सब प्रकार से सब काल में मुक्त और शुद्ध है। वह अपरिमित और अनन्त होते हुए भी सभी प्राणियों के हृदय में छिपा हुआ है। परमात्मा को जानने वाले व्यक्ति ही जन्म-मरण के चक्र से मुक्त हो जाते हैं।

Laughter helps, crying heals

THERE IS no doubt laughter is the best medicine. But it is also a fact that crying heals. If laughter keeps one physically healthy by releasing positive energy, crying lessens the burden of pain, sor­row or guilt with which the heart is heavy.

Crying is normally synony­mous with pain and is therefore, considered a negative feeling. Se­rious thinking will reveal that it's to re­lease and reduce pain, whether physical or mental, that one cries. You feel the pos­itive results once you are through with the crying.

Just before a dust storm, the atmos­phere is hazy and unclear. You can't see things clearly in the mist and fog either. But after just one downpour, the whole at­mosphere clears. There is no clouding and you don't see any trace of the duster fog. Crying brings about the same effect. The confusion and pain, in the form of tears flow out and one feels much lighter at heart and clearer in the mind. The more you cry the more hurt, guilt or sorrow you wash out from within yourself. Physical and mental wounds hurt much less af­ter a good cry and most of the time, one feels quite healed up and relieved.

It is also a common thinking that it is only women who cry. Men are supposed to hold back their tears. But it must be remembered crying has no gender specification. It makes every human 'childlike'; a moment when the adult dissolves into being a child.

Contrary to popular belief, one must not suppress or withhold tears. Crying is to pour one's heart out. It's net a sign of weak­ness but a sign of honesty with oneself. And when you are honest, you have the strength of truth with you, which makes you much stronger to face hardships in life. So don't worry. Have a good cry
