Lets get a bit into metaphysical essence of our life..
We have seen Saints and Sages meditating in a particular “Mudra”(implying hand position in the present context)
The “Mudra”, as implied above, is sign language sending a message from the body to the mind through the nervous system and from conscious to unconscious spheres of our existence.
The famous GYANA mudra, (Gnana) which is formed by joining the thumb and the forefinger, and leaving the three remaining digits gently extended, demonstrates the anatomical, neurological and psychological aspects of a “Mudra”.
The Sanskrit GYANA (Gnana) gives rise to the Greek word “gnosis” which filters down in English as “Knowing”…..
So, a person meditating/thinking/concentrating in the “Gyana Mudra” automatically places his mind in an optimum state of higher consciousness.

Let’s check out the digits that are in contact during “Gyana Mudra”. They are the thumb and the index finger…
The Thumb symbolizes humanity: Finite, limited but at the top of our phylogenetic scale(during evolution).
This is also a big anatomical progress that we have made over primates. The saddle joint at the base of the thumb, where it meets the wrist, allows the thumb to be firmly placed and used in apposition to the other four digits. This character is instrumental for the manual flexibility and grasping ability that we have in comparison to other mammals and primates.
The characteristic of a human(‘humus” or earth creature) is a developed mind(manas in Sanskrit) having better tool making capability and better flexibility than other primates.

The Index finger is called so because we instinctively “index” or classify all creations outside our self by pointing this foremost digit.
This finger, in metaphysical meaning, represents God, the absolute sea of cosmic energy that is eternal, limitless and infinite.
When we unite the thumb (Humanity) to the index finger (God), it forms a circle in which limited humanity is linked with the infinite, unlimited absolute, a (w)hole, being both absolute zero and total completeness.
And when we say…”God Exists”….it is somewhat inaccurate.
Because, the moment something exists, it is already limited by/defined by a form (roop) and name (naam )….


For someone who has difficulty in understanding this Hindu theology…. he can refer to the seventeenth century French theologian PASCAL, who defined God as..
“A circle whose circumference is nowhere and center everywhere”
….hai ki nahin..!?!
The DNA map of humans and primates(chimps/apes..)have 99 % similarity.

so.. Bundar aur Hamare Under sirf ek percent ka antar hai..
and the most radically different cluster of DNA is the one
that helps us humans convert meat into digestable protein..
yahin pe bundar maar kha gaye..

A speaclist is someone who knows more and more about less and less, until ,he/she knows enerything about nothing....
so...whats ur speaciality !!

Once upon a time there was an island where all the feelings lived;
happiness, sadness, knowledge, and all the others, including love.

One day it was announced to all of the feelings
that the island was going to sink to the bottom
of the ocean. So all the feelings prepared
their boats to leave.

Love was the only one that stayed. She wanted
to preserve the island paradise until the last
possible moment. When the island was almost
totally under, love decided it was time to leave.

She began looking for someone to ask for help. Just then
Richness was passing by in a grand boat. Love asked,
"Richness, Can I come with you on your boat?"

Richness answered, "I'm sorry, but there is a lot of silver and gold
on my boat and there would be no room for you anywhere."

Then Love decided to ask Vanity for help who was passing in a
beautiful vessel. Love cried out, "Vanity, help me please."

"I can't help you", Vanity said, "You are
all wet and will damage my beautiful boat."

Next, Love saw Sadness passing. Love said,
"Sadness, please let me go with you."

Sadness answered, "Love, I'm sorry but I just need to be alone now."

Then, Love saw Happiness. love cried out,
"Happiness, please take me with you."
But Happiness was so over overjoyed
that he didn't hear Love calling to him.

Love began to cry. Then she heard a voice say, "Come Love, I will take
you with me." It was an elder. Love felt so blessed and overjoyed that
she forgot to ask the elder his name. When they arrived on land the
elder went on his way. Love realized how much she owed the elder.

Love then found Knowledge and asked. "It was Time", Knowledge
answered. "But why did Time help me when no one else would?",
Love asked. Knowledge smiled and with deep wisdom and
sincerity, answered, "Because only Time is capable of
understanding how great Love is."
