WHEELS of safety



Technology changes people‘s lives. Technology brings this and that of very many various things and stuff in to people’s lives and at the same time it takes out things from people’s lives and bring things in to their lives and such creation or the innovation has many things to do with lives of people and that takes our lives around their hopes comes attached with
Have you ever listened to the following song sung by Mr. Edward Jayakodi

Kerakena rode punchi karatte indagena mama inne
Padika wedika pasu kara yannata thallu karan puthune
Thallu karan puthune
(the turning wheel, the small cart, I am sitting on it now
Push it forward to go passing the pedestrian lanes
Push it forward son
Push it forward )

The song picturing a life of a father and a son before my eyes and also hints me how they try to reach to their future going passing all the pedestrian stoppings or allocations
It is a dialogue written in a very poetic way, their life experience , I like to say the words used are so appropriately chosen and viewed in a very live way and that shows the lyrists talents of see through life through his eyes.  

He tells to his son do not stop do not disappoint though you get fed up or so much tired push the life forward will reach to the destination you want.

Wheel is a tiny part of this very big innovative world I am not going to write anything much about the innovation because there is enough of information on internet about histories or new innovations or old innovations of this tool or the equipment for life - wheel.

Primitive society to advance and in between medieval periods industrial revolutions, pre world wars and post wars pre colonial or post colonial what ever way you layer the eras of the innovative histories  I like to think that every second or moment someone of this world innovate something new at always not  materialistically important innovations may be apolitically or politically , socially or economically valid something or religiously immeasurable things ‘ innovations are not of just a one thing it has many facets or groups or scientifically or artistically important.

Innovations generally address the needs of a society and its people.  Like the teachings of life ‘Buddhism’ that there was a need  for a such a philosophy to address the issues, disputes, social and natural obstacles appeared in ‘ visala mahanuwara back then of the society of Siddhhartha gauthams’s era, it is same with the societies that the birth of Jesus Christ , Allah and other religious philosophers occurred . They all tried to address the need of the society at that time. sufferings because of various social and other things
Sathara peranimithi leaded our Sidhartha Gauthama to seek for eternal relief from the never ending journeys of the sansara.  

Ledek – a patient
Mahallek – an old
Pewedi ruwak – monk
Malaminiyak – a dead body
Think of the above four life realities that I noted
A patient

Can we name a single person who has not suffered a single moment because of an illness, tiny or major, minor, or else chronic?

That patient is different from the English patient of recent past (the cinematic creation)
Any infant one day become a teen , a young, elder, old , inevitable during our infant to young we do not think much of becoming an old one day, unavoidable truth.  That was same with me.

 Mahallek ‘name any young that stayed the same without reaching the position of old can we? Because that is the law of universe.

Pewedi ruwak people have ways of  finding a moment of relief or a place to rest sort of a permanent place in life that can give them some peace of mind, some relief from hazards face, ignoring or avoiding the busyfull lives , lives attached with neon lights , wheels of fortunes, that starts at some point and ends at a certain point giving you a rate, cash that the number shows or indicate or else the arrow stop point shows.  Such things takes what you have earned so far from you do not bring any effortless or effortfully earn money in to your wallet or the place of your wardrobe
People need a place to rest at least a bit.

it can be a ambalama which gives a moment of rest for your feet (generally a ambalama those days were built at certain points of routes, paths, for the long journey, touring walkers) or a guest house motel or a hotel that people go somewhere for their summer vacation or to Nuwara eliya or Bandarawela , to Anuradhapura Why most need or like to stay away from their day to day tiredness may be to stay away from boring routings of their lives or files full of world, devises full of work so to have calm or moment of quite reading. I like to take this ‘ Pewedi bawa ‘ it is true and pure meaning not the modern meaning of pewedi bawa that has so much to do with the modernization of their followers lives, accordingly they too had to change using new technological devises to view the things happening of the world, use footwear, forget sometimes the ‘paaththaraya’ , without going pindapaathe to seek some food to live for the sake of the travelers of the sansara to show them some moving out poverties of their lives, illnesses, sufferings  some strategies, related to dhamma.  So to achieve this kind of an advanced or a sort of a permanent kind of relaxation place , path to eternal place for a person if he/she think of following what ever following preached by the religious leaders having a pure objective in their minds is good to do.

All above one day or any moment ( unpredictable) have to face ‘death I can’t name any person who stayed in this world forever become a dead body that is inevitable
A death body was the last to come before the observation lanes of our Gauthama Budun Wahanse, as the Prince of truth Siddhartha Gauthama encountered this and that of many realities truths of life thereafter

Knowing all these our Siddhartha Gauthama the prince who had a brain to understand ‘ temporality of life and kingships decided to live away from all the materialistically important or valid currencies things or fill people’s lives with unnecessary ‘power’ up to 60% or less than 60% or in between every unit is money people have to think of how to pay back
mainly I am not going to put such things in to the categories of new innovations I mean rates do not generally belong to new innovations.

This will not stop there following the 60 % increasement all the other who uses the facility might think of a very good plan as to not only how to minimize the unnecessary usage but also to earn what they are paying to the board.  This business or that business this service or that service every person who need bit of electricitical power might not stay calm saying aiyooooo who cares we will reduce the prices of our products.

Innovate something new or alternative for electricity that will lighten not only all the cities but also all the villagers, small to big. Why 60% why not 20% why not 10, 6, 5 0r 8 percent annually

I accept we people waste not only electrically motivated  ‘electricity’ but also drop by drop water food but is this the way to teach us a lesson?
Please sir/madame think of doing it systematically  while giving a bit of advise to people I am not saying that they do not understand the importance of saving electricity but anyways it is always good to keep an eye on the ‘meter’ readings

What is a wheel?
What is the shape of a wheel?
What are the uses of wheels?
What life realities this shows and teaches the human or the world?
What comfort it brings to people’s lives?

Is a wheel a sign of trust?

How many gets in to a bus trusting the wheels just forget the person who steering the wheel for few minutes?

A wheel it turns and turns until we break or stop technologically or religiously at a certain place.

Sansara is like a wheel similar to it because of the way it works and functions I wrote while ago.  it stops and starts and stops somewhere and again starts but for that someone has to steering it who is steering the wheel of sansaara is that what you called ‘ Karmaya’ this is not sin some misunderstand this term this is all the actions and reactions thoughts to practice of things attached with our lives. AM I RIGHT?

The driver stops the bus at a halting place this each and every bhawaya is a halting place of a sansara we travel from here to there or there to here or to somewhere? Do you get what I am trying to say or explain?

Some halting places are built using a roof cover to protect the passengers from natural  sudden or inevitable changes, some you find no roofing or no shelter, in some halting places you find any or many passengers waiting for a bus but at the same time you may find halting places or resting places where you find or see very few or one or two number of passengers, journey riders or drivers . interesting thing is some of us rarely  ( like board eka nobala bus ekata goda una Sandun- sandun who got in to a bus without reading the destination name of the bus) get in to wrong bus or miss the bus correct bus that will take you to where you want to reach. Wheels just takes you listening to your own commands sometimes , instinct or inner wants and needs therefore it is advisable to give this wheel a right command am I right Sandun?

Wheels takes you ( you give not a single meaning ) to this and that of destinations routes, paths, lanes detours  halting places, viwekashranayan, ambalam or what ever name you give this and that of resting places you may know or do not know crossing from kaha ira or from different place lawfully not allowed place breaking rules of roads.

Who gives the commands for a wheel to turn this side or that side or stop at a certain point and then continue journey? did I ask this before or the beginning of this note? Then you may already have the answer.

Is it just the karmaya who gives you and I, she and them commands?  what or who stops people reaching their eternal place of rest not the death but the nirwanaya then ? why is it then people are so lazy to think of such things why we hang around this temporally made paths or roads for some years and then continue again the same routine of life as an infant towards an old, same charkraya, wheel?

Is it an invisible hand?
 
Unknown or unseen soul ?

Wheels teaches us things brings things to our doorsteps, halting places,  a bus comes and stops near our foot and we get in taking a ticket air or bus train or taxi or a three wheeler we need to pay at the very same point no credit system allows in paying for our journey rides.

Birth is a ticket of this journeying in sansara bus.

We give this and that names after buying or painting what we bought ‘ recondition or brand new ‘have you ever tried to read the names given on top of the body of the/ bus or the vehicle ? some give it a name of their dear ones, some name on behalf their life children ‘s name some name on remembrance of their parents relax naming are as such.

wheels brings or holds such memories of our lives too, inevitable or unavoidable.

Is life a wheel that can trust or that need to take care because it carries lives of a lot of people? what is a wheel alignment ?
Check the wheels before stepping out of your house for safety reasons.

This note of Wheels of safety is to be continued !
