divinivid I was feeling pretty lost at a couple points in this journey. On this day I visited the Charity Birds Hospital near Red Fort (Old Delhi). Seeing so many birds recovering, dying, being taken care of, caring for each other... All within the grounds of a beautiful Jain temple - It helped sober me up. It gave me a new perspective and I began to quietly chant the Hanuman Calisa, a powerful mantra for healing. Hundreds of birds, surprisingly more quiet than the muffled taxi and rickshaw horns outside, were so gentle and content. They are taken care of, they are held by the Divine Hand, just like you and I! In a sense, illness and injury teaches us to have more faith in ourselves, in others, and in the powers of the universe. 9h

jaseemts Bahubali is an esteemed figure among Jains. He fought a straight duel with his brother Bharata, which determined who will rule their father's kingdom. Bharata violated the rules of the duel out of greed, but Bahubali survived. He decided to smash his brother's head with his mighty fist and raised his hand. But all of a sudden Bahubali thought "What am I doing? Am I going to kill my brother for the sake of worldly possession?". He saw the evil in himself and decided to give up everything. He meditated motionless for an year, attained omniscience and became Arihant (one who destroys all inner passions like anger, attachment, greed and pride). The key message of the story is on ego and self-realisation. Ego and pride builds negative karma, anger and destructive attitude. And that no real solution come out of it.

Just imagine. There is a 42 ft. huuuge statue to remind us about this message, which is apt and perfect in today's world - and yet nobody gives a shit.

Oh, we human beings!
