Who Is Great, Whom To Praise.

News from “Htrea”.

One fine day, early morning, Akbar went in search of Birbal.
When both met, Akbar said,” Dear Birbal, something is really troubling my mind.”
“That is nothing new. Let me hear it first and I will solve it for you” said Birbal.
“While we were on the Earth people were always praising the wisdom of Birbal” said Akbar.
“Even now they read about those stories and speak high about you.” Akbar was on the verge of crying.
“I have done many good things for them.” said Akbar.
“Yes:” agreed Birbal.
“I was the best ruler in our Mughal Dynasty.” Akbar emphasized.
“No doubt” said Birbal.
“And under my rule the whole country prospered.” Akbar said proudly.
“That too correct” accepted Birbal.
“Is it my work or your witty answers which benefited them?” Akbar asked.
“Of course it is your great works” Birbal confessed.
“Then why everybody talk about Birbal’s wit and not about me or my great works?” asked Akbar,
” Even now they are doing the something,”Akbar continued, “Who is great, Akbar or Birbal?”
“Have you ever enjoyed the moonlight?” Asked Birbal
“Don’t you remember, many nights we sat in the garden and enjoyed the moonlight?” said Akbar.
“What about the sun? Have you ever sat outside and enjoyed the sun rays?” asked Birbal.
“How can we enjoy sun rays? On a hot day we even cursed the Sun.” said Akbar.
“But with out sun nothing will exist, including the moon” said Birbal.
“That is true but...” said Akbar.
“Which one is important? The Sun or the Moon?” asked Birbal
“The Sun” said Akbar
“Yes. The sun is important; without the sun we cannot live, even the moon cannot shine. But we never talk about the Sun but always praise the Moon.” Birbal continued, “You are the Sun and I am the Moon. Without you I have no existence.”
“Now I know who is great and whom we have to praise.” Said Akbar with a smile and walked away.

Meditation: The Path To Eternal Truth

You may be waiting for me to reveal more about Htrea; The Mirror World.
Surely I will do it for you.
How we accrue knowledge?
By reading books written by learned men
By listening to their words.
How these people become learned men?
How they got all these information?
By thinking constantly
Through meditation. Meditating on a single topic.
Yes those people were always in search of something.
And one day they got get it.
Whatever they acquired, they never keep it as a secret within.
They came out and revealed it to the benefit of the mankind.
That is how we came to know about the unknown facts.
Bhagvan Bhuddha got it while meditating under the banyan tree.
What was he doing at that time? Meditating.
That everyone knew.
My question is what is one doing while meditating?
“Nothing. How can one do something while meditating? Meditation is doing nothing.”
If you think so then you are totally mistaken.
The real meditation is just getting detached from your surroundings, your body, your thoughts and your action.
“What is getting detached?”
How can one get detached from himself? Impossible.
It is the “Amta” that is getting detached.
When the “Amta” is locked inside the body, whether it is a human being or an animal or an insect, it cannot see nor communicate with others in Htrea: The Mirror World.
But through meditation one can free his “Amta” for sometime.
One may succeed to free the “Amta” from the body but it may still attached to the thoughts.
Someone may succeed in getting the “Amta” freed from their thoughts, but still it may be attached to the body.
Few others may get their “Amta” freed from the mind and body.
But it may still attach to their actions.
In all these cases, the “Amta” is not totally free.
So the “Amta” cannot see the other “Amtas” nor communicate with them.
Even “Htrea” is not reachable. But when the “Amta” is partially freed, it will get a dimmed view of “Htrea”. It can hear other “Amtas” talking in a faint voice.
The more you free, the more visible and clear it will become.
That is the TRUTH you are seeing! That is the TRUTH you are hearing.
Whatever you saw or heard will remain with you even after your “Amta” returns.
Once you experience this, even for a fraction of a second, you will get excited.
Some people, after experiencing it for less than a millisecond, will stop there and start talking about the ULTIMATE TRUTH! What they knew? Nothing. They never experienced the TRUTH. What they got was just an idea about “Amta” and the existence of an “Other World“.
That is enough and more to them. Not ready to try for more. They will immediately start thinking how they can convert it into “fame” and “money”. Their “Amta” never got freed from their thoughts and action.
Such people are there around us and we must identify them and reject them.

At first one may find it very difficult to meditate. Slowly by practice, one can learn how to meditate and free the “Amta” from body, Mind and Action.
It is not Bhagvan Buddha who alone done it. Hundreds of thousands of people around the world have done it and even now doing it. Many of them are just common people only. If they can do it, why can’t you do it?

Birbal’s Easy Answer

Akbar and Birbal
You know Raja Akbar and Birbal is no more.
But that is not correct.
They finished their term on this earth and gone.
While on earth, Akbar was the king and Birbal was the wisest Minister in his court.
But now they are in “Htrea+” a planet in the “Ralos System++”.
Never heard of these names? Ever head of the “Mirror World”? That is it.
There too they play the same role occasionally Akbar ss the Raja and Birbal as his Minister.

One day Akbar wanted to examine the smartness of Bitbal.
So he drew a line on the wall and asked Birbal to make it shorter without cutting, hiding or erasing the line. In short don’t touch the line.
Immediately Bribal drew another long line below the first line.
“Look. Your line is shorter now”, Birbal said with a smile.
“That is the old trick you played while we were on the Earth.” said Raja Akbar.
“Use your head else you may loose it for ever” warned Akbar.
“How short you want the line to become?” asked Birbal.
“Will you be able to shorten it to the length I prefer?” asked Akbar doubtfully.
“Yes. I can reduce it, I can expand it, even I can animate it” said Birbal confidently.
“Ok. Make it one inch long.” Said Akbar
“Go backward and stop when the line becomes as short as one inch.” Said Birbal
“To make it bigger, just come forward.” said Birbal and continued,” To animate the line just run backward and forward at a speed of 24 steps per second!”

+Htrea: The real world where we actually live. Our planet Earth got its name from this word only.
++Ralos System: Htrea is one of the Planets in the Ralos System

Htrea: The Mirror World

Look at the mirror.
You will see yourself, your surroundings, everything there.
Is it a reflection?
No. It is the Mirror Image.
A Mirror Image is not the reflection at all.
The Mirror is just a peep hole to the “Mirror World”
Mirror world is in “Htrea” a planet in the “Ralos System” far, far away from our Solar System.
Everything on Earth is not there in Htrea.
Everything happen on Earth never happens in Htrea.
There something else is happening.
All the dead and gone are also there, but surely not the same form.
They are called Amta,
Each one is in charge of few mirrors.
If some one looks through one of these mirrors immediately he will create a replica in the Mirror World and the Amta will appear on the scene in your shape and form.
By creating a replica of your surrounding and the Amta imitating everything you do, you get an impression that it is just a reflection and nothing else.
Once you are on Earth you cannot see the other Amtas there nor communicate with them.
Which is real? This Earth or the Mirror world?
Both are real.
You go to school or office and come back in the evening.
You complete your studies and go to another college.
You get a transfer to a distant place and stay there for some time.
Which is your original place?
It is your home only.
Yes our real home is the Mirror World.
We live there happily. No school, no office, no hard work, it is like our imaginary heaven.
We come to Earth to play a game and will return to the Mirror World as and when our Amta decides.
Just think how we see a dream while we are asleep. The dream will abruptly stop the moment we wake up.
While we see the dream, it appears to us as real.
Here also it is the same.
Our Amta will decide when to stop playing on the Earth and return.
The way to return is to leave the body here and go.
We call it “Htaed”; the act of shedding the visible cover.
Once Htaed is over you will become invisible on earth. Only the Amta will remain.
If the Atma looks in to the mirror he will see the Htrea, The Mirror World and can return.
So Mirrors are the Entrance to the Htrea; The Mirror World.
This Earth is the play ground where Atmas from Htrea comes to play.

This is just an introduction to the Htrea; The Mirror World.
I will be revealing more and more about Htrea in coming days.
Please read on till you get a real picture of everything.
Once you get the complete picture you will stop feeling sad or unhappy.
You will enjoy every moment of this life on Earth even the saddest moments.
Because you know it is all just a Play!
See you tomorrow.
