Sabbe Pruthagjana Unmaththaka ……………………………..
Sabbe pruthagjana unmaththaka ……………………………..
After watching the latter part of the ‘meet your doctor’ at ITN this afternoon after ‘getting some good medication for my cricket ailments from ‘ SINHAWALOKANAYA’ I thought ‘ kisiwekuth nomala geyakin aba mitak genenna neganiya’ our Budun Wahanse’s request to the ‘ kisa gothami’ a old time lady of a Indian society at that time the ‘all in one’ sentence ‘how can we apply this to ‘ our now lives’ here in this society we live.
If you find a man or a woman that does not belong to this ‘ ‘sabbe pruthagjana unmaththaka’ ‘category’, anywhere of this world I like to borrow some ‘ mustard ‘ from such a ‘roof’.
I remember a good hearted doctor that we used to meet via ‘television’ ‘ PROFESSOR NANDADASA KODAGODA’ this very ‘close to teachings of Buddhism’ doctor sooths and calms & HEALED our minds and brains through his words in every way.
He explained things sometimes using examples from the teachings of Buddhism. I was not this old in understanding things much better compared to now. We read ‘Dhammapada’
Mano pubban gama damma
Mano setta mano maya
'chethanahan bikkawe kamman wadami'
it is our 'mind' that faces and change due to all our thoughts and ideas we hold within and accordingly how we face our society' our brain has to react or our heart has to face such things. they reach and react to things differently. each and every mind is different differetly formed, organized, layers of mind if we can take a draft picture of our own mind or an x ray we can see all these i guess. but where is this mind located' can we touch and see' we have to see this and get pictures of it from our 'brain camera' no other modernized cameras can capture an accurate picture of 'our mind'
lets imagine that now we have captured a picture of ones mind' what is next? which colour lab that we should go and take that to get a print? any digital colour labs you know please let me know.
can we? may be it is possible this modernized world full of new innovations.
this very sensible and sensitive organ called ' i have never seen a picture of it before' human tool 'can be so easily damaged'
taking care of it is never easy for any human.
thinking of dhammapada again
During all levels of learning - life of academic we got chances to read and recite the same before our ‘teacher’ and at the exams. Those days we never knew how to apply and how applicable those things to the societies we live to any person/people with any back grounds of education. Now we do understand things little better because now we do both ‘living’ &’ learning’ together. If you only living not learning and at the same time not remembering and applying the same ‘everyday’ in everything or something you do’ you never will get chances to understand these realities.
We are a part of this big technologized, so inter connected, ‘privacy have gone away to far away places’ ‘lost in money’, ‘lost in games’ like cricket, ‘always want to win’’ do not want to lose’, ’ some like to see others not doing something and then feel like partying or celebrating when people are falling or failing’ ( this is not applicable to all’) we live in a such way categorized societies. Thinking of all these I guess there is always a tendency in embracing ‘all ailments or some ailments that we do not like or never meant to embrace’.
Targets in life, visions and missions full of lives, competitions can you give your mind a little break or can you spend one night or try sleep well without thinking of such targets in life. you have to wake up with a days plan. May be you have already gone to sleep with a plan in mind and following morning you wake up with the plan you had previous night. Even during night/sleep your mind and brain works ‘ no time to rejuvenate or refresh or repair it. ’The machines of all kind ‘loosing its original shape and size every moment you use them. Some machines like human you can repair ‘during sleep’ while you have switched off the machine for some time – for at least 6 or more hours. Do not try to turn it on until you think that ‘it has got back to the previous position to a certain extent. Because it is stupid to think sometimes ‘you can not expect this human machine to work the way that it worked many years ago’
Think about these things do you think I am wrong here?
Sabbe pruthagjana unmaththaka
This is so possible in this so materialized, lost harmony and peace of mind due to ‘new’ shapes and sizes of ‘now’ society’
‘You and I’, and ‘I and I’ and ‘I and all’ are in this category no one can say ‘no we are not in this category’
We are ‘ paagal’ or ‘mad’ ‘ crazy’ ‘pissu’ we have this ‘one of the ‘you can not change these things’ because each and everyone of us are part of this society’.
Analyze your life.
See whether any one of us can borrow ‘some mustard’ from a place where you can find a ‘ no I am not mad I maintain a healthy mind not spoiled with anything’ never spoiled with any bad thoughts’ ‘ I never thought that person is bad and I am good’ ‘I never a mad woman/man’ ‘If you can ever be happy that ‘ even for a moment I never thought something bad or ill will about anyone’ 'I never thought that my son/daughter must pass the ‘5th grade exam than the other children of this country’ if you never thought that ‘ it is my child who was eligible to that trophy and hold the certificate for ‘best marks for mathematics’- the school prize. Etc etc you can think of ‘how sometimes your neighbor think of things achievements or hopes in their lives/their children’ how they talk of such things’, ‘how your own sibling think or analyze ‘their life achievements’
And then try to think how you see this term ‘ and how you extract the meaning or how you understand the ‘term’ unmaththaka ‘ mad’ or pissu’ maanasika rogiyek’
Try to see then ‘do we belong to that category I tried to mention in the earlier parts of this little note’
What answer you have now?
