No Chinta, only the Mani
bsxChintaMani Two incidents from the reminiscences of Roda MacIver [#126] in Face to Face with Sri Ramana Maharshi have made significant impact, of late. From page 303 (middle): One day I was feeling some mental agony while sitting in front of Sri Bhagavan....

Best wishes to a humble and dedicated Dude

One of my greatest learnings has been from PSM:

| Jobs can't give us satisfaction. If we satisfy them, we might get job satisfaction.

Very important distinction, which has liberated me. For any work that i take up, my endeavor has been to satisfy it to the extent possible.

From Chapter 19 of the Gospel:

I saw a sadhu on the bank of the Narmada. He repeated the Gayatri mentally. It so thrilled him that the hair on his body stood on end. And when he repeated the Gayatri and Om aloud, it thrilled those who sat near him and caused their hair to stand on end.

The more one digs in, the more one's ignorance shows up!

When Socrates was called a wise man by the AkAshvAni, he observed that was because he knew that he knew nothing.

From the article on The Watchers:

| It has long been known that, at the smallest scale, seawater is a mesh of interconnected long-chain polysaccharide molecules that can hold smaller molecules, and even organisms, in a kind of suspension; restricting their motions and aligning them in complex arrays. The Scripps Institute research found that these molecules provide a structure that makes seawater a matrix of isolated regions at the milliliter scale. Bacteria and plankton use that structure as unique ecologies in the same way that a forest provides niches for different kinds of life.

Monday morning, Chery & i were having a very interesting discussion with PranavT.

Pranav was referring to a concept known as expression. Even though i wasn't aware of the word, i knew exactly what he was referring to.

Due to what i read in that wonderful series I am Joe's Body in Reader's Digest in the mid-1970s, in which JD Ratcliff writes:

| Surprisingly, the DNA in the rod cells of Joe's eyes contains all the information needed to produce a complete baby! The DNA in an ear cell could theoretically construct a foot. We don't do these nonsensical things because in each of us large portions of the DNA template are blocked out. My DNA makes rod cells, nothing else.

This is a nice place with a lot of ambiance. However, it's a trifle on the costly side (about a K per person ).

We had a beautiful stay at the lovely and tastefully done cottage. Felt there was something very special about the place; serene & tranquil and the staff looked after us very well too! Great to walk around the place: could easily cover the daily quota of 90 minutes.

This is a convenient place to have lunch and dinner at Kakinada. The ambiance is in line with what cityslickers are accustomed to. The food is good to great (ask for the gOngUra pachchaDi). Once in a while, you might get a bum deal of a waiter, but that's par for the course, i guess.
