Answering the questions from my blogger friends!

A question is my favorite sentence. It has a power to move our mind in the right direction.

Just like the Awards post that I have made, I thought I should make a post which answers the questions asked by my bloggers friends. This is a compilation of all wonderful questions which I faced through award posts, comments or any other form.

I have chosen the questions which I have found really meaningful and the ones which fit with my blog.

1.) What are the values/beliefs that you hold yourself to that are nonnegotiable?

Freedom to me is nonnegotiable. We are all bound by Maya and Karma. To become free from that bondage is the ultimate goal. I can give up all other qualities but I can never give up my search towards freedom.

This is also my answer to “What is the motto of your life?”

2.) What book have you read that was life changing and why?

In my case there is not one but many books which have had a huge cumulative impact on me. My mind has learned from a lot of great people and connected their thoughts in different ways. Listing some of them below:

  • Bhagvad Geeta
  • Miracles of mindfulness- Thich Naht Hahn
  • The heart of buddhaโ€™s teaching-Thich Naht Hahn
  • Swami vivekananda complete works vol-2
  • Zen stories to tell your neighbours (or 101 zen stories)
  • The Tibetian book of living and dying
  • The Upanishads (penguin classics book)
  • The Other Side of Belief: Interpreting U. G. Krishnamurti by ย Mukunda Rao
  • Wisdom of Insecurity- Alan Watts
  • Intelligence – Osho

3.) What has been the biggest lesson you have learned and about how old were you when you understood the lesson?

  • Lesson no. 1- Nothing is permanent, change is inevitable.
  • Lesson no. 2 – We are bound by Maya and Karma.
  • Lesson no. 3 – Our ego limits our view. We must destroy it to become free.

I learned all these things during the age of 20-24 by reading and observing the things that were happening around.

4.) Name one blogger youโ€™re the most inspired by and why?

Myself. Honestly, I love reading what I write. Sometimes I am amazed at the ideas and thoughts that are there on this blog! ๐Ÿ™‚

I feel that when I write, I don’t think about myself. I try to be very objective and yet include lessons from my own experiences. I include important insights and questions in each blog post.

So when I read it, I am just like any other reader who is going through the blog post and enjoying it. I also feel good while reading my own posts because I spend a lot of effort composing each sentence. So it is inspiring to read my own blog.

5.) Do you believe in Reincarnation ? Why ?

If it happens once, why can’t it happen twice, thrice and infinite times?

We are not our body, mind or ego. In my readings I have come across this topic of reincarnation. All the spiritual books I have read support the reincarnation.

In general, when the body dies, a subtle form of life continues and finds a new body according to your Karma.

If you are interested, I really recommend “The Tibetan book of living and dying” by Sogyal Rinpoche. It explains the entire process of death and rebirth and it is mind-blowing.

To be continued…

If you found these topics and questions interesting, feel free to create a meaningful conversation, I would really enjoy it. I will keep updating this post as new questions come up. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I love that you like reading your blog the best… I think that is actually very important. I write for myself as well – It matters not who reads, comments or “likes:. I do it for ME ๐Ÿ™‚ I am familiar with Karma, but not Maya. I will have to further study that!

    1. Thank you! Yes, I try to help others with my writing, but when I read it I myself find it really helpful. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also don’t care about likes and comments. I only care that my words should give some value to readers! ๐Ÿ™‚
      ‘Maya’ is web of illusions in which we live! It is certainly worth studying! Glad you found it useful! ๐Ÿ™‚
