The biology of belief

As usual, it's been a while since I blogged anything. Getting caught with my work, personal stuff and of course a bit of laziness to write something. However, Life enthralls me by providing new experiences either way. After listening to Dr.B.M.Hegde's wonderful lecture, happened to read this book, "The biology of belief" in a span of 2 months!

I would say that it's completely worthwhile and provided a new and supportive view for me. I would suggest everyone (especially the parents) to read this or at least the article shared below.

Le Havre

Happened to watch this movie unexpectedly just picking it from library. Movie poster looking different to me might be a reason. Whatever it be, the movie is really a good one. With just some actors, only few can create such a wonderful movie.

Must watch one if you get a chance.

Sandhya raagam

I wanted to watch this movie for a long time. Somehow I couldn't find it. Thanks to the person who uploaded this in youtube, I watched it yesterday. This is truly a masterpiece from Director Balumahendra and reckoned by him as one of the classics out of his films (the other is obviously "Veedu"). Indeed it is one of the world classics.

Just watch the movie and feel it.

Beelzebub's tales to his grandson

Bought this book last year and kept it for a while. In fact, read the second series "Meetings with remarkable men" few years back and "In search of the miraculous" last year. Started reading this book (of course with warning from Gurdjieff) couple of months ago. So far completed around 300 pages! Osho's comments on this series of book is absolutely true.

I forgot to say something about Gurdjieff and his book ALL AND EVERYTHING – perhaps because it is a very strange book, not even readable. I don’t think there are any living individuals except me who have read from the first page to the last. I have come across many Gurdjieff followers, but none of them had been able to read ALL AND EVERYTHING in its totality.
It is a big book – just the opposite of the ISA UPANISHAD – one thousand pages. And Gurdjieff is such a rascal saint – please allow me this expression, rascal saint – he writes in such a way that it becomes impossible to read. One sentence may go running on for pages. By the time you come to the end of the sentence you have forgotten its beginning. And he uses words he made up himself, just like me. Strange words... for example when he was writing about kundalini, he called it kundabuffer; that was his word for kundalini.
This book is of immense value, but the diamonds are hidden among ordinary stones. One has to seek and search.
I have read this book not once but many times. The more I went into it the more I loved it, because the more I could see the rascal; the more I could see what it was that he was hiding from those who should not know. Knowledge is not for those who are not yet capable of absorbing it.
Knowledge has to be hidden from the unwary, and is only for those who can digest it. It has to be given only to those who are ready. That’s the whole purpose of writing in such a strange way.
There is no other book stranger than Gurdjieff’s ALL AND EVERYTHING, and it certainly is all and everything.
