June 23rd, 2015 by Jashodhara Purkayastha

We went to Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, Indianapolis, IN, USA on 20th June 2015. At the entrance we found an interesting question for visitors—–What according to you is Freedom. Answer can be displayed on a big sheet of paper under the question.

My answer was:

  1. Freedom is Love and Happiness

  4. Freedom is free from greed and gluttony
  5. Freedom is free from Lust and Lure

Make Every moment Pleasurable

July 3rd, 2014 by Jashodhara Purkayastha



One night when we were discussing about life, it came to my mind that why can’t make every moment a pleasurable moment.

By doing the following things we may make the moment pleasurable.

  1. Live in present .

  2. Enjoy every moment.

  3. When laugh, laugh aloud.

  4. When cry, cry to the brim.

  5. When with girlfriend/boyfriend, enjoy without thinking past or future.

  6. If eating, eat to the fullest.

  7. If doing aerobics, exercise, do with happy mood. Don’t bother for others.

  8. While doing shopping, buy the choicely things.

  9. While bathing, enjoy every shower.

  10. While meditation, think, I’m the soul and wants to join the Supreme.

  11. When studying, be with the book.

  12. While cooking, Enjoy every act

  13. Lastly, one thing I want to mention, when I was reading a book “Living with Himalayan Master”, I found one important saying— Those who brood on the past and never live here and now, this is the cause of their suffering.

বেলগাছ (Bael Gachh – Wood Apple Tree)

June 24th, 2014 by Jashodhara Purkayastha

বেলগাছটা নুইয়ে গেছে
এমন পাতার ভারে
সব ডালেতে পাতার ফাঁকে
ফুল যে ভরে আছে |

হাওয়ার তালে পাতা উঠে
শনশনিয়ে তালে
মনে হয় যে হাত উঠিয়ে
নাচছে তাথৈ তালে |

গাছের নীচে নেইকো পাতা
নেইকো কোনো নর্দমা
নন্দী ভিরিঙ্গী ঝাড়ু হাতে
করছে সাফাই সাথে সাথে |

সকাল হতেই পাতাগুলো
হয়ে যে যায় শান্ত
আসবে আমায় ধরতে এখন
জানিনা কেমন পান্থ |

শিবজী বলো তুমি কি শুধু
তুষ্ট থাক একটি বেলপাতায়
তাহলে কেন লোক যে এমন
আমায় টেনে নামায় |

আমার বেলগাছকে দেখে

God on Earth

June 23rd, 2014 by Jashodhara Purkayastha

Once God thought of making a software . THAT (God) could not sleep that night and walked everywhere. Next day THAT came to the earth to see the condition of mankind. Everyone has lots of desires. Everyone wants the material comforts. They are buying all modern gadgets. Every now and then they are buying mobiles of different kind to satisfied their needs. When God went to the shopping mall, THAT observed that peoples’ hands are occupied with carry bags full of materials. God sat near the fountain and smiled in THAT’S mind. Suddenly God saw a child of two years wanted a toy of its choice. God wanted to see whether its parents give the toy to the child. God went near the shop and observed the behaviour of the child. All the time the child showed different toys. Parents were confused. At last they bought a small toy for him and walked away. God smiled at the behaviour of three and went to heaven.

Next morning, when God woke up THAT thought “Now it is the time to make the people understand what is my plan.Let the people use their intellect and work. My work has to begin now”. THAT started making a software. God collected many buttons and made a software and sent it to the world. Looking at the new software, all wanted to operate it. God had designed in such a way that nobody knew the usage of the new one. Everyone got different window. Every individual randomly started pressing those buttons. One person named Radha used her intellect and pressed number five button. Immediately full computer burst and she died.

Every individual started pressing these buttons according to the programme created by the planner according to ones Karma. Everything in the Universe has a specific cause and effect (KARMA); the magnitude of an effect is due to the cause and may be created at the time of action as Radha pressed the button. This principle acts in the,materials, mind and Spirit. There is no such thing as chance, luck or random events. We only use these terms when we cannot identify the cause. People know the effects of something after the consequences.

The Principle of Cause and Effect enables us to comprehend the relationship between events that happen to an individual and the actions of past life or another. The word “karma” refers to a cause and the effect – could be either positive or negative but not yet known to the people which button gives what effect. When discussed this principle, people try to understand that whatever happens in our life may be favourable or unfavourable is due to our action whether previously done or present action.

Sometimes the action could be done consciously or unconsciously and if the effect is good, people boosted its own ego. However if it is not good, then blame God or other people or bad luck. The Law of Cause and Effect is always acting in individual’s life.

God started watching from heaven that whenever desire cannot be controlled, people press the button and try to get something from Pandora’s box. Choice of pressing the button also depends on the previous action done in the past life or in the present. God is good .If the mind is the doer, we have to convince and control our intellect.Mind is drifting here and there easily. So we have to regulate our mind by controlling our intellect.

Happy Women’s Day

March 8th, 2014 by Jashodhara Purkayastha

Creation, Patience, Architecture, Support, Love, Family –all together in one person  — that is a Woman

Lots she bears without a word,

Huge she surrenders for the ward.

Caring and loving, a tender touch

Continuous  support & attentive watch.

A woman gives birth to a child
Feeds the baby with sleepless nights,

The first teacher who shows the light,

Indebted to her till the last rite.

Soul Mating

February 21st, 2014 by Jashodhara Purkayastha

Love story not only means physical relationship but also  soul mating.Read the book WHERE LOVE BEGINSVibhavari

A person cannot live alone. He needs something which encourages him/her to lead a good life. That is why marriage is not only a physical relation or bonding between children but also a relation between a mind and soul. The main purpose of marriage is that each one gets a soul mate which is very important for a happy life.

Swagata Sings to Eternity

December 29th, 2013 by Jashodhara Purkayastha



Swagata enticed us into Bliss with two songs at the Engagement of Bonny & Diya on 24 Feb 2012 …. But the cruel embrace of cancer separated us from Her and she breathed the last moment on 28-12-2013 @ 11.50 am, leaving us with a Memorable occasion on Song … “Yeh Hai Reshmi Zulfo …” and ” Lag Jaa Gale Ke Phir Yeh Hasin ..” This is a small Tribute to her …

He the cruel cancer … !
” .. the white eyes writhing in his face,
His hanging face, like a devil’s sick of sin;
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, ”
…. Wilfred Owen

Swagata no more in this world with us … but her songs will be forever telling us her story

Power is powerful–

December 13th, 2013 by Jashodhara Purkayastha

Every day I watch from my window and wonder how crows return to their own nest at dusk. How do they recognize their own tree and nest? Alternatively, aren’t they bothered of taking shelter anywhere before dark? During twilight, if you observe, crows start caw-caw and go to their nest. Then answer comes from my mind that the Creator is so powerful and so talented that the Supreme Being has given the special ability to all THAT’S creation to go to their own nest and at sunset.

Siberian cranes come from Siberia in winter and go back to their destination during summer. They never miss the way. Do they have some kind of intelligence? On the other hand, God must have given them the potential ability to perform their specific deeds.

We all know the Power of the Divinity but trying to find out who that POWER IS.
