In essence, too much of attachment (Moh) in anything or anybody robs our sense of proportion and inculcates error of judgment of loss of consciousness. It clouds our value system or correct perspective. It also gives more credence to the mundane worldly possessions or attitude of personal concerned. This attachment may be towards our own life.


The realization about too much of attachment (Moh) to our own impermanent body even came about while I was on an operation theatre with a team of doctors, headed by Dr. Rupesh,  around me for heart angiography in Mata Chanan Devi Hospital in Delhi a few days back. Some questions popped up in my mind; such as what would happen if the level of blockage would be more than 90% or what if something uncertain happens during the operation? Then, suddenly an inner thought came about, with the grace of God, ‘accept whatever is destined. Then a warm and positive emotional upsurge from inner recesses of heart popped up and all the negative feelings of despondency evaporated in the thin air. Firstly, the hospitalization also gave me opportunity to know about the physicians, paramedics, supporting staff etc. All these make huge difference. While these most significant ones have humane touch and positive attitude then God’s grace seeps into them and have spread effect on the patients. Secondly, the most ambiance, updated technology for providing cure for the patients but of all these accessibility of doctors, assistance of supporting staff including nursing staff play a most significant role. But I opine that hospital staff with detached mindset,  humility, accessible attitude and above all humane attitude along with competence of the staff to operate the intricate technology etc. goes a long way in ameliorating the condition of the patients admitted.


While we are leading a spiritual oriented existence, we tend to think that we are living a detached existence. Following a spiritual path believing that we are living a life bereft of any responsibility, living aloof, away from friends, family members besides not feeling pain when others are having. This sort of  supposed detached  existence puts us in quandary. We neither understand about spiritual way of living nor detached existence!  Leading a spiritual path means not to be overly possessive about worldly possessions.  In actual practice, life is a mix of happiness and sadness. Sometime it manifests in sorrow and sometimes happiness.We may live with detached  existence or partly detached and partly attached, thus creating limitations of our own creation. Detachment hardly mmeans total withdrawal or remaining aloof from worldly affairs but remain performing our duties bereft of malice, jealousy, anger, withdrawal from mundane things in life.

In Sikhism, the term attachment (Moh)  is due to consciousness (delusion) s well as an attitude  of attachment for the mundane. Guru Nanak says: The whole world is engulfed by mundane values and attachment to it. In a way,  delusion is more general and exhaustive in meaning and may include the attachment born out of wrong views.

In Buddism, it has been mentioned that ignorance is the root cause of attachment (Moh) which is illusive and too much mundane fascination.

Importantly, all the problems which are being confronted by us humans are related to too much attachment (Moh) to worldly possessions, status, relations etc. Our desires for sense gratification go without interruption and goes on multiplying partly due to competition with others and partly due to fulfillment of our egocentric tendencies. Then when we have too much attachment either with our relatives, then, when we lose them due their parting ways either temporarily or permanently there is too much of despondency, Factually, there always would existential problem without our relatives and friends who are always there to assist us whenever we require their help. This overly attachment would make us off putting.


While we have total control over our mind, we can control our emotions and having total control over our emotions thereby we can prioritize our thought processes, emotions and desires. This could be accomplished through living with a philosophy of forgetting and forgiving, a policy of not sticking to anything or everything in life. In Bhagwad Gita it has been said that we should have the philosophy of ‘letting go’ without clinging on to the fruits of our actions.


It is a undisputed fact that if fixated about the outcome of rather than focusing on the job at hand then that job will not give us appropriate result While giving piece of advice to  Arjuna, Lord Krishnna tells him to perform duty without attachment to the fruits of his action. Further, we’ve to continue to engage in the pursuit of knowledge and use such knowledge for getting our  mission accomplished but being detached from the fruits of action. Here total renunciation is better than   meditation even. With renunciation, we can attain peace of mind, contentment and ultimately happiness besides attaining our result of our sincere action.


Lack of attachment or remaining total indifferent hardly means withdrawing from the job at hand or from worldly affairs. At best we can have total concentration on the mission accomplishment with factors involved to fructify such mission. It hardly means running away from duties from  the family or loved ones, society community or duty at hand and remaining aloof. In sacred Vedas it has been enunciated that we all are interconnected in one way or other. We are part and parcel of Supreme Being. Wife and husband are physically and emotionally connected and without their sincere connect and emotional involvement, reproduction in order to continue civilization is not possible. We cannot have mechanical way of our existence. Naturally, we have an immense capacity of giving and taking love. But this should be within a limit.


Factually, there cannot be any function in this world bereft of sincere desire or Iecha which is taken as greatest Shakti (power). Our desire is the first step for starting any mission. It may be any intractable job or any intricate operation. Without desire, we cannot have even a thought of starting any desire for fructification. It may be starting a project or business or any venture.

In Vedanta, there are three aspects of life. These are Iccha, Jnana and Kriya. To fructify these aspects, it is important that we have purified mind. Here Iecha Shakti or strong determination is of paramount importance in order to attain any goal in life. The main purpose of Lord Krishana’s teachings in Bhagwat Gita is to change the mindset of Arjuna so that he performs his primary duty of a Kashtriya is to fight. It can hardly be attained through renunciation or detachment.  Bereft  of desire, we cannot achieve anything in life.


Detachment is not about shunning away from our duties that come with some strings attached. It is about seeing and experiencing things as they truly are, without clinging on to anything  neither good nor bad, neither action or inaction, neither desires or desirelessness, neither emotions or emotionlessness – but seeing everything as wonderful, without gauging through our mental perceptions and judgments.


Truthfully, we cannot be desireless as we cannot remain emotionless in our life. As we know everything in the universe is interconnected therefore we cannot be totally detached. Icchia shakti is a must, without which nothing tangible happens.  ‘



Lord shiva  is the most affectionate, simplistic, pleasing in bestowing His graces with slightest of prayers, enigmatic, recluse, forgiving, artistic, greatest preachers, greatest scientist etc. Therefore, we should not only rejoice on their union in marriage but also their imbibe their compassionate NATURE.

Lord Shiva has Himself told the other deities that He had manifested in the form of ‘Pillar of Fire’ in the month of Phalguna and during the constellation of Ardra. Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati (Nature – Prakriti) are really difficult to be understood by a normal human being. Both love their creations; it may be normal humans or demons (Lord Shiva’s liking for Demon King Ravana as a renowned Bhakta of Shiva is well known), ghosts, spirits (which Lord Shiva took with him at the time of his marriage with Parvati), amongst all the creations.

On MAHASHIVRATRI day devotees observe the strict fast and keep themselves awake throughout the entire night. They immerse themselves in Shiva’s prayers for deriving bliss of connectivity with Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.


It is pertinent to mention about the background as to how Shiva and Parvati had their first meeting. Parvati had seen Shiva (In meditative trance) while she was only eight years old. She determined that she will marry him only when she grows up. When she grew up, she told her father (Himavan) that she wanted to marry Shiva. She was also fully determined to make him realize her love for him. Then finding the suitable opportunity, her father made mention about the marriage of his daughter to Shiva.


Shiva means auspiciousness and lingam means a symbol and when to put together it means: ‘a symbol of the great God of the universe who is all-auspicious’. It also means ‘the One in whom the whole of creation sleeps after dissolution. The worship of Shiva in the form of Longa is most prominent. It represents as a symbol God Himself. Shiva lingam is to be bathed in water, milk, and honey. For purification of these, bel patra should also be added. Vermilion paste represents virtue, after bathing the Shiva Linga with water, honey, curd etc. with utmost devotion vermilion paste is applied on it.

Natural fruits like berries are very dear to the Lord, hence these are offered. Fruits are also the sign of fulfillment of our desires and hence should be offered.

Forgetting His grace and bounties offerings when dhoop (incense) is ritualistically burnt give maximum benefits. The lamp is lighted. The lamp symbolizes knowledge and wisdom and keeps away our ignorance. If this is lighted with devotion and offered to the Lord, we can derive maximum benefits. Finally, betel leaves are offered which symbioses the satiation of our worldly desires besides keeping our spiritual onward march intact.

The Trinity amongst Gods (Lord Bhrama, Lord Vishnu & Lord Shiva) are responsible variously:-

Lord Bhrama is in charge of creation.
Lord Vishnu is in charge of maintenance and evolution.
Lord Shiva is in charge of destruction (Sanghaarkarta) and subsequently for recreation.
The Trinity of Goddesses and their responsibilities are;-

Goddess Parvati is the Goddess of fertility, love, devotion, and power (Shakti).

Goddess Lakshmi is the Goddess of wealth and prosperity.
Goddess Saraswati is the Goddess of knowledge and learning.
Satyam means essence or truth or reality – whose results could be tested and attested at any time and anyplace with similar results. In other words, these results could be confirmed scientifically.

Shivam means giving. This may be in the form of Gyan (knowledge) or any other agent of change which may help an individual’s growth in various stages of growth from childhood onwards.

Sundaram means that one ensures to receive information required for growth and development and wellness of the child without any expectation. This function is performed by the family and the society at large.


At the time of the churning of the sea by the Godheads and the Demons (Rakshas) there surfaced a vessel full of poison amongst other enchanting objects like Kamdhenu (Wish-fulfilling cow, white horse, white elephant, Kalpavriksha (Wish-fulfilling tree), Lakshmi (Goddess of wealth), Dhanvantri (Divine Physician) and finally the vessel of Amrita (nectar). To save the world from the devastating effects of poison, Lord Shiva consumed the pot of poison and kept the same in his throat with his Yogic Powers and that is why He is also called NEELKANTHA or Blue Throated with immense reverence. He did not take the poison which came out of the sea but kept it in his throat. By doing so, LORD SHIVA saved the world from being annihilated due to the poison which came out of the sea.


It is comparable to the nothingness of vast cosmos/nothingness of space with galaxies, planets, etc. That which is pure, simple, gracious, benevolent and full of beauty. In Vedic scriptures/literature, Shiva also connotes liberation or emancipation. He is the auspicious deity who is creator, reproducer, and destroyer of the forces of negativism and darkness. Shaivism also represents beliefs and practices of Hinduism. Shiva is not affected by three Gunas (Sattva, Rajas, and Tamas). He is called Supreme Lord. He is a great Yogi. One who is beyond any limit of appreciation – nothingness which can absorb anything and everything.


Lord Shiva is a great Yogi who gave us Yoga and method of living – living as mystic Yogi but not oblivious of the family bonding. His contribution as a recluse and the householder is the phenomenon and cannot simply be ignored. The complexity of His traits as a deity cannot be comprehended if we do not delve deep into his life. In the earlier years, he used to wander in the Himalayan region and subsequently an ascetic who is always absorbed in Yogic meditation. This was proved right when the barat (marriage party) was received. Strange as it looked: Shiva as a groom, rode a bull, with matted hair, ash smeared all over the body, was a part of koupina or loincloth., a garland of bones and skulls, as usual, a trident in one hand and damru (drum) in the other hand.. There was the beating of drums nd the mixed sound of trumpets – a terrific sound indeed. Amongst the baratis Marriage party) were Gods and Demi-Gods Not to speak of this, his marriage barati’s consisted of the ganas, ghosts and other strange and fearful witches, vampires etc. The marriage receiving party


We always say him in meditative posture – completely immersed in contemplation. He is Yogi with a difference who could be termed as the deity who could be pleased with bel patra and fruits. Simple sincere prayer can earn His bounties – that is why He is called as Bhole Shankar.LEAVES AND FLOWERS ARE OFFERED TO LORD SHIVE AND GODDESS PARVATI


When Shiva is provoked beyond a limit, when He was in trance, as was done by Cupid or Kamadeva, He opened His third eye and reduced him to ashes in a fit of anger.

There are 12 Jyotirlingas (Lingas of Light) which are held sacred by the devotees. They offer prayers at these holy places.

Devout chant Mantra OM NAMON SHIVAYE and also Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra to get special benefits since this day falls in the most appropriate planetary positions in the Northern hemisphere; helps devotee raise his / her spiritual energy vigorously. The prayers are answered if these are done with sincerity. This day is also celebrated because on this night Shiva performed His cosmic dance (Tandava). This dance was enjoyed even by other Godheads.

Lord Shiva’s abode is mount Kailasha. He bearer of sacred river Ganga on his head besides a serpent named Vasuki. His devotee Nandi is the carrier of Lord Shiva. In Shiv Purana, it has been mentioned that Shiva prayers should be done in the following manner to get maximum benefit:-


It is important to know the attributes of Lord Shiva which are depicted variously as: benevolent, pious with huge reserves of compassion, easy to be pleased, honorable, delightful with brilliance, innocent, easy to be pleased, invincible, having huge prowess, fearful or ferocious when hugely provoked, Wrathful, violent and dangerous, destructive, autistic (Yogi Raj).


Shiv-shakti Shiv is called Kala (the eternal time) and Parvati the consort of Shiv is also called Kali meaning ‘Time’ or ‘death’ (two mixed together means the ‘time has come’). Various people worship Shakti or Kali represents the feminine force whereas Shiva is the masculine force along with the power of peace.


Lord Shiva has two aspects. Firstly as an ascetic (Yogi) shown meditating and also as a householder – having family performing the dual functions wonderfully well. He has a consort named Parvati (the daughter of King Himalaya). The family consisted of the following:-


She is the Consort of Shiva, variously described as, Shakti (Divine Energy), Devi, Divine Mother along with Goddess Tripura Sundari, Durga, Minakshi, Kamakshi etc. She is also identified with Nature, creative energy, Ardhanarishvara (dynamic extension of Shiva without whom Shiva is incomplete.



Ganesha is the deity in a human form but with the head of an elephant which represents the power of the Supreme Being that removes obstacles. .He was created out of the remains of smut from the body of Parvati and further infused life into it. He is worshipped with great devotion, before starting any prayer or starting any business or new job His name is taken. He is said to the remover of Lord of removal of obstacles (vegan Karta), Lord of beginning. No Yagna or any ritual is incomplete without beginning with prayers to Lord Ganesha.


He was assigned with the responsibility of protecting the Gods and Demi-Gods. He is worshiped in South India by various names such as Murugan, Subramanya, Shanmugan and in North India as Skanda and Kartikeya.


While Parvati felt very lonely, she created Ashok Sundari from a tree to remove her monotony and loneliness because Shiva remained in meditation most of the time.


She is considered kind to the devotees who worship her. Due to her bad temper and unhappy disposition, Mansa was rejected by Lord Shiva. She is termed as the goddess of snakes and worshipped in North India. She is also described as the destroyer of poison.


In the incarnation of Lord Vishnu as a woman named Mohini, Lord Shiva was charmed by her beauty and through the union of the two Ayyappan was born. He is specially worshipped in South India.

Then there are other children of Lord Shiva named Andaka and Jalandhar and Mangala.
Names of Lord Shiva. According to Shiva Purana, there are 1008 names of Lord Shiva. Some of these are given below:-


There is a description in the Puranic period that Lord Shiva is also termed as the Lord of Dance or Eternal Dancer. The two most renowned dances are Tandava (which is the powerful and masculine dance) and is associated with the destruction while Lasya which is very graceful and exhibits delicacy of emotions and is attributed to Parvati and associated with creation. Both destruction and creation are the important factors in the universe and the world at large.


Represents the form of Shiva Murti facing South. This represents aspects as a teacher of yoga, music, and wisdom.


It represents the combination of two; Shiva and Shakti (Parvati) depicting half male (Shiva) and half female (Parvati). It is due to the fact that Lord Shiva was hugely pleased by the austere traits of Parvati and granted her the boon of becoming part of his body.

Tripurantaka. In this Lord Shiva is depicted with four arms having bow and arrow in the at of destroying Demon named Tripura.

In essence, Love has many forms and manifestations. When it is giving without any expectation, it becomes a priceless gift of our Creator. It multiplies as we divide it. Love, in essence, could be sacred, when we love our Creator. In Bible it has been said: . The love of God is so great that He sent His one and only son for each one of us! Take time to meditate on God’s sacrificial love today and let these Bible verses about love bring you peace and perspective.


 We warmly adore our parents and other relations but when our love is for even a rank stranger, then it become lasting. Then we love total stranger while we feel ‘empathetic pain’ for their pain and we would like to render helping to alleviate their pain. We express our love for our Gurus in the form of our devotion to them since they help us in our pursuit of seeking God. We care for our pets that also is a form of love.


What a warmth in our emotions emanates when one is immersed in love! While showering our love, we involve ourselves totally. A true lover does not care for his/her own comforts and well-being while immersed in this sacred emotion of loving. Love, I feel, is not a business transaction. It is giving and giving with no expectations in return.


While we take love as a God’s gift, love gifts us many things in return which cannot be exchanged for anything in life. This return gift is all encompassing – a saintly feeling for us all. It generates warmth in our heart and a nostalgic feel, a deep longing which we want to exchange with others so that it spreads from one to many.


Then, there is a special type of love – love for the country of our origin. So much so we are swayed by its love that we would like make supreme sacrifice for ensuring safety and security for protecting its integrity. There are umpteenth examples of the personages who immortalized themselves for protecting the independence of the land of his/her birth. That is also a form of love.


Valentine’s Day is celebrated on 14th February every year. There is a very popular account that a Christian saint was imprisoned and prosecuted under the Roman Law for solemnizing the marriage ceremony of soldiers who were not allowed to marry. Saint Valentinus performed the marriage of these soldiers and broke the Roman Law. There is also a legend that while being in the prison; he healed the daughter of the jailer named Asterius.

Legend have it that before he was to be executed he wrote a letter finally signing as: YOUR VALETINE to bid adieu.


A love with enriching experience
A love which surpasses all frontiers
A love which is eternal in nature
A love which takes us away from imaginary to a real one
A love whose fragrance spreads all around for others to emulate
A love which becomes an example and a model for change
A love which add to our knowledge about each other
A love which sets its own standards and agenda for others to follow
A love where losing or winning makes no difference
A love rooted in sublime and humane delicate touch
A love which broadens its base without an iota of bias
A love which spreads its heady scent for a wide
A love which is magical in nature
A love which is not theatrical in its character
A love which enlightens us and is not mechanical in nature
A love where we do not care for results
A love where every skepticism melts
A love which gives eternal peace

A love which erases all lingering riders.

 A love which is most enlightening
A love which is energy giving while sharing
A love which increases by every day passing

A love where we do not care for caste, creed, colour or race while expressing

A love which is all all-embracing.

A love which has the Almighty God’s blessings
A love where we do not demand but would like giving
A love where suspicion has no place while giving
A love where we get extreme joy in sharing and caring
A love which solves more problems than creating
A love which teaches us values of living
A love is based on understanding
A love which flourishes with every passing day & have no chance of diminishing.

A love which has not got any limitation
A love which has its sweeping but sweet implication
A love where there is not even an iota of hesitation
A love for which any sacrifice could be given without much reservation
A love which does not care for any narrow consideration
A love which does not have a particular day for its commemoration
A love for which all days have the same connotation
A love which helps in natural progression
A love from which we get utmost satisfaction
A love which is full-blown like a beautiful flower on all occasions
A love which is broadest in its application
A love where there is no regression but enough progression
A love which does not have any expectation
A love nobody prefers even losing ourselves for its fruition.



A love which gives happiness in taking pain of others
It is similar to the  love of Saint Valentine
A Catholic Bishop of Terni
In Roman Empire
Who attained martyrdom for the sake of LOVE
For solemnizing a marriage secretly
Of condemned soldiers
For whom marriage was a bar
Under the Roman Empire’s law
And marrying those forbidden once to marry
Attracted the Saint’s imprisonment
And ultimately martyrdom
Which very year we commemorate.

While in the condemned cell of a prison
With his miraculous touch, he cured the daughter of the jail warden
Saint Valentine sent out a farewell letter
With words so eternal in nature
“From your Valentine”, These immortal words have become a grand brand
Presently for us all to express to our loved ones
With heart suffusing with delicate love
With a huge sprinkle of pride for such a love
Mixed with a huge smile write large on our faces
Lasting for good in our mind’s eye
And in real life too, we live with complete affirmation
That love binds us and bestows us God’s eternal satisfaction.


May this day usher in indelible love to us all and removes doubts and differences from us all in fact without biases.



In life we come across different sorts of people. There are the people with whom you can familiarize yourself instantly, can believe them, but there are the ones with whom we face some difficulty in communicating or understanding them. Then there are the people whom we can repose our trust and can share our opinions with an open mind. While there are the ones from whom it is difficult to part any information because of their skeptical nature. Then there are the, baffling lots, who get your information and use such information against you to deride you?! Such people take you for granted after getting needful information. We’ve to be wary about these sorts of people. They are treacherous lots and could stab you at your back any time they get a chance to do so.


On a hindsight, it is most significant to understand with whom you are having any sort of dealing since the people you interact or identify with determine your character too. For this, it is important to have good company in order to have right thoughts and Karmic deeds accordingly. Having any interaction  with unethical and immoral people taints our own character, therefore, it is a must that we should know with whom we are speaking, dealing or having business dealings.


The encouragement for writing about different sorts of characteristics of the different people instigated me to pen down about a person who proved to be partly cunning, partly crafty/schemer besides being unbelievably obsessive; the one whose thoughts, emotion and behaviour leading to faulty perception, inappropriate actions and feelings besides being a person having exaggerated sense of importance. I consider such a person as a schizophrenic.  If and when question of personal integrity comes to the fore, he considered himself uppermost. He has the knack for extracting information from a subject, use the information collated as a ladder to get his agenda addressed by molding opinions in his favour with dishonesty, nepotism and bias writ large. Too much of selfishness is a curse and should, therefore, be discouraged since this trait is a negative in its orientation. Therefore, need is to know the intent and object of a person concerned.

It is in the fitness of things to know about the characteristics of different persons which require modicum of change.


 A person who says something and acts just opposite is deceptive in its orientation. A person with deceptive trait cannot be trusted at any event as such a person misleads since deception is his forte. I have observed that there may be many amongst us who have this characteristic. Everyone of us must have experienced deception at one stage of life or other. Such a man can deceive you when you least except him, so we’ve to be wary of such a person.


Ego is a negative trait. A person with exaggerated sense of importance which may lead to enhancement of self image in the eyes of others. The inculcation of high opinion of himself is misleading. In Bhagwad Gita, the term ego (Aham) is identified with Self. The term Aham is Brahman himself (Aham Brahmasmi) or Atman (Soul).


An emotionally stable person perceives a problem and makes effort in solving such a problem in a more balanced way. He does not lose his cool while tackling any problem nor does he disturbs the peace of other while doing so. He does not ignore reality while facing a problem and evaluates pros and cons while solving the problem using his wit and experience while doing so.  


An extrovert is a person who is more open, go getter, more assertive, more self confident/self assured besides he does not hide any fact while discussing facts and figures.


A person who is known for his introversion. He remains quiet, remains reserved, does not showcase his inner potential in the public glare. He is insightful with modesty  as a necessary trait.


A person who feels the pains and sufferings of others while contributing his mite for alleviating others problems in a way he can. Such people are having humility, empathy and remain positively oriented.


A person who with a firm belief that he could live with high standard of behaviour and sincerity. He remain positive in all his dealings with others. A person with lofty ideas which sometimes may be unrealistic.


A person who is immature, inexperienced besides being inactive in words and deeds. Such a person cannot be relied completely in any dealings.


We must have come across people who would like to have what they want even disregarding others interests. They cannot be trusted in any deal. They are born pessimists and live in the world of their own making.


The person who showcases extreme views because of his fears or phobia. This is entirely a negative trait. Such a person cannot be trusted since he is a prisoner of his own inner contradictions.


The person who is too much intrusive in the affairs of others besides being compulsitve in his behaviour. His fixated viewpoint may be counter productive not only for himself but also for others around. behaviour may cause distress. This obsession or mania may lead to misplaced outcomes.


A person who cannot be easily pleased though you do anything for such a person. This is in fact a negative trait of a person but it has been experienced that such people are the best performers and are having the knack of getting work done according to their likings.


 A person who always takes optimistic view of anything and everything. Such people are the creams of any society since they respect others viewpoints and would like to listen others patiently and act rationally ultimately.


The trait of a person of being morally upright, ethically right, justified without being judgemental.  This is a positive trait that an individual could garner. But if we exceed this its limit then it may become showy; self righteousness which is a negative in its orientation since when a person thinks himself more righteous then his egocentric tendency emerges.
