  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I fully agree with the famous quote by Sir Isaac Newton, one of the genius scientists and a great philosopher: “I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.” In my view, this quote and underlying thought process are the best examples of humility and modesty as much as the self-realization attained by a brilliant mind. When we think about our accomplishments, no matter how huge those are in quantity or how outstanding in quality, we realize and appreciate that the great ocean of truth still lays all undiscovered, yet awaiting millions and trillions of seekers like us, who are yet to arrive in next generations. Newton's thoughtful quote, that honest truth, certainly brings us back to reality, and down to earth, lest we forget.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    The word "GURU" stands for Philosophical and Spiritual Guide. Interestingly, in its spelling (GURU) is embedded the hidden message "Gee, you are you", i. e. the knowledge and guidance is with no one else but you. You are truly the part of the same Supreme Power that created you. Hence the knowledge and guidance that you are seeking from outside is really within you, in your deep inner mind where lies that divine spark of intelligence from the Supreme Power. Really and truly, you are the best guide, the best spiritual leader that you can find for yourself. Seek within, and believe in yourself - always! The path of illumination always begins at this very juncture of Self-realization, and recognition of the Supreme Power within.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    There comes a phase in life, at least once in a lifetime, when one finds himsef/herself totally alone...so utterly alone that one must withdraw into one's innermost self. there is no other option but to endure that bitter suffering. When one overcomes that overpowering solitude, one is no longer alone. Through this solitude and the soul searching, we find that our innermost self is the divine spark of life, the indivisible spirit that comes from the Supreme Power - God. And after that moment of self-realization, the awakening from material world, we find ourselves in the midst of the chaos of this world, and yet totally undisturbed by its multiplicity, fully in sync and accepting the world as is - because our innermost soul we know ourselves to be one with all being.
