#Monk in #PaloAlto the story so far (a thread): back in mid-June, the Monk estate and Impulse/Universal announced internationally with top marketing push for a #jazz release that an #unreleased concert in Palo Alto was coming out on July 31. /1
Great backstory: gig promoter was high school kid, recorded by school's janitor. Single was launched on digital platforms. Then, around July 25 it "disappeared" without notice. Bare-bones official explanation: release had been postponed indefinitely. /2
Given how this was disrupted (tracks disappearing from personal devices), eyes turned to Columbia/Sony: big corp with serious legal team. Monk was under exclusive contract with them and they'd have first call on any releases of Monk's recordings made during his contract. /3

Devotee : "Swami ji, who is the founder of Christianity?''

Swami @Chinmayananda : ''Jesus''

Devotee : ''Who is the founder of Islam?''

Swami Chinmayananda : "Mohammed''

Devotee : ''Who is the founder of #Hinduism?''

Swami Chinmayananda : ''.....''
Devotee : ''What Swami ji, your religion doesn't have a founder?''

Swami Chinmayananda : ''There is no one particular founder for Hinduism as its not an outcome of one personality's knowledge.

Let me put the same question to you.

Who is the founder of Chemistry? Physics?
You cannot answer, because these are sciences which had contributions from plenty of scientists.

In Hinduism, Our Rishis were the scientists".

Devotee : .........

Swami Chinmayananda : ''If you ask a Christian to give book on Christianity, he gives you Holy Bible.

1. Shi-va means that which is not. That which is non-physical. There is no parentage, there is no place of birth. Nobody saw him as a young boy to grow up. All the time when we saw him, he was about the same age.

2. And we don't know where he died - such a significant human being even in those times, if he died somewhere they should have built a temple, they should have built some kind of monument for him nothing like happened. So there is no birth,-

3. - there is no death, there is no parentage, there is no anything to prove that he was here. Does it mean to say we can assume he came from somewhere? Not necessarily, but if you look at the lore, it's very common to refer to #Shiva as a-

In the Bhagavad Gita, why does Krishna talk about his opinions?

So, Everyone as a Human have different opinions.

In the case of Bhagavad Gita, Krishna is following 2 basics of Vedas.
This Universe is unlimited and change is the only truth, death is just a part of this change.

You yourself create your future, you yourself make your friends and enemies, you yourself set your limits.

You are the only God for Yourself!!
Never believe that you are always correct because right and wrong are relative terms. Truth have no value and existence without False and vice versa similarly anything correct in your eyes can be Incorrect for someone else.

That's why he used the term "in my opinion"

A rare conversation between Krishna & Today's Arjuna.

1. Arjuna :- I can't find free time. Life has become hectic.

Krishna :- Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.

2. Arjuna :- Why has life become complicated now?
Krishna :- Stop analyzing life... It makes it complicated. Just live it.

3. Arjuna :- Why are we then constantly unhappy?

Krishna :- Worrying has become your habit. That's why you are not happy.

4. Arjuna :- Why do good people always suffer?
Krishna :- Diamond cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don't suffer.
With that experience their life becomes better, no bitter.

5: Arjuna :- You mean to say such experience is useful?

Received a fantastic message from my brother @soodparivar captioned The Empty Boat and found the #PearlsOfWisdom #TooGoodNotToShare

A #monk decides to #meditate alone, away from his #monastery.

He takes his boat out to the middle of the lake, moors it there, closes his eyes and begins his meditation.

After a few hours of undisturbed silence, he suddenly feels the bump of another boat colliding with his own
With his eyes still closed, he senses his anger rising & by the time he opens his eyes, he is ready to scream at the boatman who dared disturb his meditation.But when he opens his eyes,he sees it’s an empty boat that had probably got untethered & floated to the middle of the lake
