The power of saying - "I Don't know"



The power of saying - "I Don't know"  


May 23, 2020
Honolulu, Hawaii

Hi ! Hello ! Aloha ! Namaste !
Today I want to talk about the power of saying "No".
I had written a blog on this more than a year ago. Today I created a video and just re-iterating the same thing.
When I look at social media today, I see that there is so much stress on knowing everything!
There are social media wars out there.  Everyone seems to be under pressure to know everything about everything that is going on !
Only when we say that "I don't know". is when we can actually start learning.
It is the beginning of the quest for knowledge . It is the start of seeking and hence start of your practice of meditation too.
And it relives the tremendous pressure that we put ourselves under. So it is stress reliever too . So go for it and feel free to say it out these !

Namaste !

Tomari jhornatolar nirjone
Maatir ei kalosh aamar chhaapye gelo kon khone.
Robi oi aste naame shoilotale,
Balaka kon gagone ure chole-
Aami ei korun dhaarar kalokale
Nirobe kaan pete roi aanmone
Tomari jhornatolar nirjone.
Dine mor ja proyojon berai taari khnoj kore,
Mete ba naai mete ta bhabbo na aar taar tare.
Saaradin anek ghure diner seshe
Esechi sakol chaawar baahir-deshe,
Nebo aaj asim dhaarar tire ese
Proyojon chhapiye ja daao sei dhone
Tomari jhornatolar nirjone.

Jayodhwoni shuniye jaabo e mor nibedan.

Ei kadiner sudhu ei koti mor taan.
Tomar gaan je kato shuniyechhile more
Sei kothati tumi bhulbe kemon kore ?
Sei kothati, kobi  porbe tomar mone
Borshamukharo raate, phaagun-somirone -
Eituku mor sudhu     roilo obhiman
Bhulte se ki paaro bhuliyechho mor praan.
