Creation Hymn

This is the creation hymn from the Rig Veda. I am awed each time I read it..

There was neither non-existence nor existence then. There was neither the realm of space nor the sky which is beyond. What stirred? Where? In whose protection? Was there water, bottlemlessly deep?
There was neither death nor immortality then. There was no distinguishing sign of night nor of day. That One breathed, windless, by its own impulse. Other than that there was nothing beyond.
Darkness was hidden by darkness in the beginning, with no distinguishing sign, all this was water. The life force that was covered with emptiness, that One arose through the power of heat.
Desire came upon that One in the beginning, that was the first seed of mind. Poets seeking in their heart with wisdom found the bond of existence and non-existence.
Their cord was extended across. Was there below? Was there above? There were seed-placers, there were powers. There was impulse beneath, there was giving forth above.
Who really knows? Who will here proclaim it? Whence was it produced? Whence is this creation? The gods came afterwards, with the creation of this universe. Who then knows whence it has arisen?
Whence this creation has arisen– perhaps it formed itself, or perhaps it did not –the One who looks down on it, in the highest heaven, only He knows or perhaps He does not know.
"the One who looks down on it, in the highest heaven"..Thats the creater, Brahma...He should know how and when the Universe was created ... "only He knows or perhaps He does not know"...Then why this confusion? is it because Brahma does not know how he, the creater was created.....
People call me mad when I want to discuss this, maybe I am.....But how can we not seek the answers to these fundamental questions?


I feel blessed to have Mallik as my husband..he is not perfect, neither am I... but the love and respect he gives me is just amazing.....

Cant say no..

All my colleagues are going out of town, my ticket is booked too..but I just dont want to go.. i am tired of all the travelling, but i just cant say no!!! this is so irritating...

Religion and Ghosts?

I am a Hindu....well, we have tons og gods and goddesses...actually we have 33 crore gods and I believe in them? No......I have simple belief system.....I believe i god, and i believe god appears in the form we want see it......I also practice Biddhism, I ahve read the bible and the quran........ and I believe tht there is no EVIL........thts wot d core of my religion teaches.....although Hinduism today has changed from wot it originally was......I read somewhere some one say tht every possessed person he saw was a christian.....reaafirms my view tht some people dont know the world outside thier own little world.. I live in India, and in India you'll find a possessed soul in every 10th house i think......and most Indians are does tht mean tht Hinduism too is some kinda "from hell" religion? spirits do not have any religion....spirits are simply looking for meaning and answers just as we are.....hey hey dont jump on me now, i am simply stating my views. As i have posted before, my brother recently had a an experience, and i do think tht it was some spirit trying to possess him, it was scary but i tell myself everynight to chant and create positive thoughts my faith in the god in me and in every atom of the cosmos makes me feel this positively...ghosts exist..but i just cant believe they are evil. it is our thoughts tht are negative and so we tend to attract forces which have similar nagative energy...sooner or later all these negative forces too will find the way and reach and merge with the ultimate reality....
