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।

Stop being judgmental

MOST OFTEN we are ready with our comments on a particular situation or person, whether we are asked or not. We are quick to judge the actions and words of others particularly when we wish to de ride them.         '              

We judge purely on the basis of  our own experience, and so may not be able to fully appreciate the other  person or his difficulties and constraints.                        

But, seldom we judge ourselves because we are aware of all the factors that have op­erated to make us act in a certain way. So. we do not hold it against ourselves. That is why we find ourselves making a difference between 'me and you', excusing ourselves for all wrongs and judging against the others

Once a pig and some sheep lived happily together till one day the shepherd picked up the pig to take it to the butcher. The pig squealed and tried to break free. The sheep scoffed. "We go everyday and we do not make such a fuss, why should you?" The pig explained, "Our situations are different The butcher wants to just shear your wool. He wants me for the bacon."              

When  we appreciate different contexts, we are able to see the pic-   .

Hire in a new light. When we judge, we block our minds. We view every actinn or event concerning the said person in the light of this judgment, which may or may not be true. One should remember that the

same person might act differently under different circumstances.

When even the sun changes the angles of its rays to earth every minute, why do we presume man's response or behaviour should always be the same? When we judge, we seal a particular behaviour with perma­nence. It pays to believe that eveiy person does his or her best under the given circum­stances. Only if required do we need to offer our help.
