Question by : On the value of Initiation?
Within the ‘bygone era of ancient civilization’, initiation was the prerequisite to a truly philosophic life. Mere intelligence was not enough – a man had to be in possession of a sound ethical character and impeccable moral virtues in order that he may have pursued philosophy, which was not merely an academic subject upon which learned men dryly speculated to no avail beneath a cloak of learning. Instead, philosophy was a way of life by means of which the pursuit and love of wisdom would guide the destiny of the philosophic soul to its fated end.

Perhaps the concept of initiation has become somewhat anachronistic – however, and regardless of this fact, one cannot but wonder as to whether even today initiation should be employed. Having to place ones entire life beneath the authority of initiatory vows would no doubt serve to distinguish the sincere from the insincere.

Passing through the subterranean crypts beneath the temples of the ancient mystery schools, aspirant initiates were expected to face the most insurmountable and terrifying trials in order to prove themselves worthy of acceptance into the arcanum of philosophy. Surely, were modern students to be faced with the prospect of having to undergo such ordeals, many of them would feign aspire to pursue philosophy altogether.

Alas, when applying myself to comparative studies between ancient and modern philosophy, I cannot help but be awed at the shallow meekness of us moderns in comparison to our predecessors – and even more so, our self-presumptuous and condescending attitudes towards them.

Perhaps I am merely deluded, but I do think that prerequisite initiatory vows and ordeals are to be desired.

What would your opinion be on this subject?

Value of Sweet Tongue and Consequence of Pungent Tongue:

Value of Sweet Tongue and Consequence of Pungent Tongue:

  Once a monarch met with a prophet in order to know his future incident; prophet after observing his future through his prowess replied that each and every member of your family will die in your lifetime and you would be the only survivor in your family. After listening this stark and obnoxious augury about himself, monarch without losing any time convicted him death sentence. Some time later, another prophet came in his (monarch’s) court; monarch again asked to him about his future, this prophet very sententiously replied that lord, you would be most long lived person in your family. Consequently, he (prophet) got reward and a respectable position in monarch’s court.

  The motto to apprising to you people with this diminutive story is to disseminate the value of sweet tongue and consequence of pungent tongue. As we have seen here above the prophesies of both prophets were same, but presentations upside downed the situation. Therefore, it has been said that the sweet tongue is aura of a person and it burnish very prosperous future. Besides, person has also been appreciated and accoladed at every walk of life for his/her sweet tongue. And at the same time, the caustic and brusque tongue interpreted as juggernaut for concerned person (as we saw in above story).

  We can take the example of sweet tongue and pungent tongue from our territoriality itself. (Territoriality refers our home, society, office etc).

  In our society/office a new person comes and in short span of time he/she becomes so popular and known person that every one starts to talk about him/her, every one wants to share few words with him/her. And in the same society/office we people also observe that bumptious person, who has vanity of his/her post and knowledge does not recognize by we people because of his/her curt language. Hence, person’s education and post do not matter at all, if matter something i.e. his/her courteous behaviour and politic language.

  However, regarding this issue, right from the inception of our civilization ‘n’ number of aphorisms have been written by many scholars e.g.

“aisi vani boliye, man ka aapa khoye,

auran ko sheetal kare, aaphu sheetal hoye.

  It has been proven truth that the upshot of churlish and dour language is precarious for oneself. This attitude obfuscates the person’s qualifications and knowledge garnered by him/her in his/her lifetime. It also sequestrates social recognition and resultantly, person has been ostracized from his/her own society.

  Above all, all of us quite familiar with a famous proverb i.e. if a person injured by knife and anything alike….is curable and forgettable, but once a person injured by words is incorrigible. The great mathematician Pythogorus had very emphatically said that the bruise given by the tongue is much deeper than one created by the sword. Actually, first one bruises the skin and second one pierces the core of the heart, hence, not replenishable. Moreover, the belligerent language never be salubrious, it could never salve to any person in any way. Even though, if some time we people aggrieved out of someone’s language, feels like to say anything…….let simmer down; all simmering undercurrents, time will engulf all angers and we spontaneously realize it that all those words which were trying to surface out at that point of time are very much afflicting. Nevertheless, these sorts of situations only beget dissension and chasm in relationship. On this account, I would like to interpolate ‘Rahiman’s para…

“rahiman dhaga prem ka mat toro chatkai,

Tute phir na jude, jude ganth per jay.”

  However, if truth is acrimonious and curt, better not to tell; some time to keep silence is best ploy to cocoon our relationship from external threat.

Love Over Country

“Many seasons have passed, many climes changed/ You too are sad, friends and so are we/ Your rags alone do not sadden you/ The truth is that we are in tatters, too… Such brutalisation have we both seen/ That neither are my hands intact nor feet:/ Victory is not yours/ Nor defeat mine/ No one stands by you/And there is no one with me.”

Moreover, fashion is part and parcel of mundane life and we cannot ostracize it from our society. But of course, it should have some limitations and decency which will protect fashion to becoming randy and provocative.
