If you know God , you are witness of God , not a teacher. You are pointing the way how to find Him. You testify about Him. You don't need outside teacher about things of God

August 06 2018

This is why the Qur’an itself (verses 2:151, also 62:2, 3:164), when seen as a witness to history, declares that Prophet Muhammad “recites to you Our Signs, purifies you (yuzakkikum),  teaches you (yu‘allimukum) the Book (al-kitab) and Wisdom (al-hikmah), and teaches you that which you do not know. 
There will come a time for my people when there will remain nothing of the Qur’an except its outward form and nothing of Islam except its name and they will call themselves by this name even though they are the people furthest from it. Their mosques will be full of people but they will be empty of right guidance.
— Muhammad
Počnite odmah, ovog časa, da se opredeljujete za sreću.
Evo kako ćete to činiti: kada ujutru otvorite oči, recite sebi,
"Univerzalni zakon preuzima na sebe brigu o mojoj svakodnevici.
Danas, sve na svetu radi za moje dobro. Ovaj dan je nov
i čudesan. Nikada više neće biti ovakvog dana. Neprekidno
me vodi i usmerava univerzalna mudrost i sve što budem činila
biće uspešno. Okružuje me i štiti univerzalna Ijubav i kroz život
se krećem spokojno. Ukoliko mi pažnja makar i za trenutak
skrene sa onoga što je dobro i konstruktivno, istoga časa ću
se vratiti razmišljanju o lepoti, Ijubavi i dobrobiti. Ja sam duhovni
i mentalni magnet koji privlači sve što mi donosi sreću i blagostanje.
Svi moji današnji poduhvati biće čudesno uspešni.
Siguran sam da ću celog dana biti više nego srećan (srećna)."
Neka vam svaki dan počne na ovaj način. Tako ćete izabrati
sreću i postati osoba koja oko sebe zrači radošću i dobrotom.


5 Ways to Stay Calm in A Crisis :

1. Be prepared. By having a crisis action plan for you and your family, you know what to do and how to stay in touch during an emergency.

2. Remain in the moment. Staying on task during a crisis will give you the focused attention required for problem solving.

3. Be mindful. Set aside your thoughts and feelings and simply get the job done.

4. Give yourself positive affirmations. During a serious crisis, it’s ok to remind yourself that you are brave and are handling the situation as best you can. It just might help you get through it all.

5. Breathe. Taking deep will help you find an inner calm and an inner strength.

Mindfulness in everyday life: focus attention on one object : on mantra or watching your  body. If you are eating just focus on eating, if you are walking focus on walking. Focusing on what you do.
{Assuredly God’s friends, no fear shall befall them, neither shall they grieve} Sahl said: They are those whom the Messenger of God described, saying, ‘When they are seen, God is remembered.’ They are those who strive in God’s cause, who outstrip others in their [journeying]towards Him, and whose actions are constantly in conformity (muwāfaqa). Those are the true believers [8:4].And he [Sahl] said: All goodness comes together in four things, and through these they [believers] become ‘Substitutes’(abdāl): an empty stomach, seclusion from people, the night vigil, and observing silence. He was asked why the Substitutes (abdāl) are called Substitutes. He answered: It is because they substitute their spiritual states (aḥwāl) [one for another]. They have submitted their bodies to the vigour (ḥīl) in their innermost secrets (asrār). Then they move from state (ḥāl) to state, and from knowledge (ʿilm) to knowledge, so that they are constantly increasing in the knowledge of that which is between them and their Lord. He was asked, ‘Who are more excellent, the Mainstays (awtād) or the Substitutes (abdāl)?’ He answered, ‘The mainstays’. Then he was asked, ‘And how is that?’ He replied:It is because the Mainstays have already arrived and their principles (arkān) are well established, whereas the Substitutes move from state to state. [On this subject] Sahl also said:I have met with one thousand five hundred veracious [servants of God] (ṣiddīq) among whom were forty Substitutes (abdāl) and seven Mainstays (awtād), and I found their way (ṭarīqa) and method (madhhab) to be the same as that which I follow.

Nasir al-Din al-Tusi - The Cosmos and its mathematical Study

This photo is found on cover of a 13th century book written by persian author Abu Jafar Muhammad Nasir al-Din al-Tusi (1201-1274).
A multi-armed deity (holding a book or Vedas, an axe, drum, bunch of incense sticks, a lotus bud and a mouse) and the hexagonal platform on which he sits, certainly shows the Vedic influence.
This deity looks like Brahma, the creator god described in Vedas.
It is now displayed in the Egyptian National Library, Cairo.

The Kaaba stone is another controversy as few believe that it was Siva Linga, broken into pieces and held together by silver framing.
Muslims circumambulate the Kaaba counterclockwise seven times (just like vedic religion followers do it in temples).
Also they are advised to wear seamless white cloth around waist and wrap another one around their torse, across their shoulder.
This is how vedic priests dress while peforming rituals in temples. Few south indian temples impose strict rules on visitors to follow same dress code (for men) while they enter into the temple.

Syrians had once carried away the Kaaba stone as a war trophy and kept it for 22 years.


Shahada means faith in Arabic and is the first and most important pillar of Islam.

In Sanskrit ‘Shraddhaa’ means faith. The fact that the word for the first and most important pillar of Islam is derived from the Sanskrit word is simple proof that the pre-Islamic Arabs knew Sanskrit and were followers of the Vedic religion but were very much degraded.

Vedic Origination of Arabic:

The crescent moon is a symbol of Lord Shiva


The crescent moon is the symbol of Islam

Lord Shiva has a crescent moon on his head.

Vedic Origination of Arabic:




Mekkah is the holiest place for the Muslims.

Makkheshvar is another name for Lord Shiva. The word Makkah was derived from Makkeshvar. A place where Makkeshvar (Lord Shiva) is present.

Vedic Origination of Arabic:




In Sanskrit ‘Rama-dhyana’ means ‘to meditate on Lord Ram’. He is an incarnation of Lord Krishna who appeared in Tetra-yuga, around 1.7 million years ago. The Muslims are unconsciously worshiping Lord Ram by fasting during Ramadan, which is certainly good. But the Islamic adulteration from Vedic is that they end the fast by killing animals. Thus the killing loses the benefits gained from fasting.

Vedic Origination of Arabic:




The Kaba is called the sacred house of God by the Muslims.

In Sanskrit ‘Garbha’ means the sanctuary of a Temple. A Temple is basically the house of God. The Kaba was known as Garbha before Islam.

Vedic Origination of Arabic:




The word Islam is derived from the Sanskrit words ‘Isa’ and ‘Alayam’.

In Sanskrit ‘Isa’ means God, and ‘Alayam’ means place. The Temple is the place where God is present, and Lord Shiva was the God for Muhammad’s family members. His grandfather and uncles were the priests of the Kaba Temple. Thus Muhammad dedicated the name of his newly created religion to the Kaba Temple by naming it ‘The Place of God’ which also means ‘The Temple of God’, Islam.


“Therefore, Arjuna you should always think of Me in the form of Krsna and at the same time carry out your prescribed duty of fighting. With your activites dedicted toMe and your mind and intelligence fixed on Me, you will attain Me without doubt.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 8.7)

“Engage your mind always in thinking of Me, offer obeisances and worship Me. Being completely absorbed in Me, surely you will come to Me.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.34)

“I am the source of all spiritual and material worlds. Everything emanates from Me. The wise who know this perfectly engage in My devotional service and worship Me with all their hearts.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.8)

“I am the super soul, situated within the heart of all living beings…” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.20)

“I exist within everything, and I am therefore the essence of the atomic constituents of material elements. (Lord Krishna, Srimad Bhagavatam11.15.12)


Namas = n. bow , obeisance , reverential salutation , adoration (by gesture or word ; often with dat. e.g. rāmāya namaḥ , salutation or glory to rāma , often ind. [g. svar-ādi] ; namas- √kṛ , to utter a salutation , do homage ; ind.p. °mas-kṛ́tya [ AV. TS. &c ] or °mas-kṛtvā [ MBh. BhP. ] ; námas-kṛta , worshipped , adored)



Sanskrit namas- (nominative namaḥ) is the same word as Avestan nəmah-, both meaning "prostration, homage". The other Iranian languages contain an additional suffix, assuming something like *namah-a-č-(i)ya-, hence (Middle and New) Persian namāz, Sogdian nmʾcyw, Bactrian ναμωσο, etc. In Islam, Persian namāz takes on the meaning of Arabic ṣalāt(un), evidently because the Islamic ṣalāh consists of a number of prostrations (rakaʻāt).




The word namaz, used commonly among Muslims of Central Asia, the Caucasus and some other places, is another name for salah. It is a well accepted Iranian loanword from Persian namâz. Compare the Skr. (Vedic) verb nam - namati "to bend or bow (either trans. or oftener intr. ) to bow to, subject or submit, one's self; to turn towards i.e. to aim at". Its direct cognate in Avestan was nam - nemaiti. I believe the meaning of the Skr. verb expresses clearly the essence of namaz.

The same root is in the Skr. noun nama (namas) n. "bow, obeisance, reverential salutation, adoration" and in the expression namaste! which literally means "salute to you". Although it is not formally recognised, I also believe that the Skr. nāma, nāman "name, appellation" also belongs here but this is off-topic.

Now, namaskāra is translated as "the exclamation "namas" , adoration, homage". It seems to be a later compound not attested in Rig Veda consisting of namas + kāraderiving from the root k which has a lot of meaning the principle being "making, doing, working, a maker, doer" but it also has a host of other (probably secondary) meanings like "effort, exertion; determination; religious austerity; act of worship , song of praise" so you may interpret namaskāra in many ways, which is appraised in the religious tradition. As it was correctly noted, sūrya is "the sun or its deity" so the meaning of sūrya namaskāra should be very transparent.




Here Muslims still continue the seven perambulations in the age old Hindu style except that they move anti-clockwise (similar to arabic and urdu languages written from right-to-left).
White silver foil shrouds the stone. The oval uncovered central portion gives the pilgrims an idea of how the stone looks. Syrians had once carried away the stone as a war trophy and kept it for 22 years.

As the pilgrim proceeds towards Mecca he is asked to shave his head and beard and to don special sacred attire that consists of two seamless sheets of white cloth.

The word Arabia is itself the abbreviation of a Sanskrit word. The original word is ‘Arabasthan’. Since Prakrit ‘B’ is Sanskrit ‘V’ (like Vanga became Banga or Bangla and Vihar became Bihar) the original Sanskrit name of the land is ‘Arvasthan’.
Arva’ in Sanskrit means a horse and it signifies a land of horses, and as well all of us know, Arabia is famous for its horses.
Four months of the year are regarded as very sacred in Islamic custom. 

ince Eed means worship and Griha means ‘house’, the Islamic word Idgah signifies a ‘House of worship’ which is the exact Sanskrit connotation of the term.
Similarly the word ‘Namaz (means prayer)’ derives from two Sanskrit roots ‘Nama’ and ‘Yajna’ (NAMa yAJna) meaning bowing and worshipping.
Even the body pose using during Namaz is same as Vajrasana pose in Yoga.

Jednom je jedan učenik Rumiju postavio zanimljiva pitanja. Rumi je na njih dao predivne odgovore…

- Što je strah?
- Neprihvaćanje neizvjesnosti. Ako prihvatimo neizvjesnost to postaje avantura…

- Što je zavist?
- Neprihvaćanje dobroga u drugima. Ako ga prihvatimo to postaje inspiracija…

- Što je ljutnja?
- Neprihvaćanje stvari koje su izvan naše kontrole. Ako ih prihvatimo to postaje tolerancija…

- Što je mržnja?
- Ne prihvaćanje osobe kakva jest. Ako osobu bezuvjetno prihvatimo, to postaje ljubav…

I ti slijedi put onog koji se Meni istinski vratio

Farz je spoznati sebe, a post je postiti od svega sto nije Bog.

143. Onaj ko želi da dobrobit svoju zaštiti,  
ko je dobro razumeo gde je smirenje, ovako treba da čini:
nek bude u dobru vešt i iskren, zaista iskren,
za pouku prijemčiv, blag i skroman.

144. Malim zadovoljan, bez velikih prohteva,
bez mnogo obaveza, jednostavnog života,
smirena srca i pronicljivog uma,
bez gordosti i lak onima koji ga pomažu.

145. Neka ne učini ni najmanju stvar
zbog koje bi ga kasnije mudri koriti mogli.
Nek ispuni sebe mišlju: zdrava i bezbedna,
neka sva bića budu srećna!

146. Kakva god da su bića,
slaba il' jaka, bez izuzetka,
duga, krupna ili srednja,
mala, tanana ili velika,

147. vidljiva i nevidljiva,
ona što žive blizu ili daleko,
rođena i ona još nerođena:
neka sva bića budu srećna.

148. Neka niko nikog ne obmanjuje,
niti vređa bilo koga bilo gde.
Neka gonjen besom ili mržnjom
ne poželi drugome da pati.

149. Kao što bi majka rizikovala život
da zaštiti dete, svoje jedino dete,
na isti način negovati treba
bezgraničnu ljubav za sva bića.

150. Neka ta prijateljska ljubav
prožme čitav ovaj svet, bez granica:
nagore, nadole i svuda unaokolo,
neomeđena, bez mržnje i neprijateljstva.

151. Bilo da stojiš, hodaš, sediš ili ležiš,
dok umor ne savlada, razvijaj takvu svesnost.
To se zove uzvišenim boravištem, ovde i sada.

152. Nezaveden pogrešnim gledištima,
već pun vrline i usavršen u znanju,
nadvladavši žudnju za čulnim zadovoljstvima,
u ovaj svet preporoditi se više nikada nećeš.

— Karaniya Metta Sutta

Istrazivanje, ucenje novih stvari : nove informacije za mozak predstavljaju neprestanu promenu sredine. Zato se on trudi da se adaptira, razvija se i nagrađuje sebe dopaminom, hormonom sreće, za dobijanje i obradu nove informacije.

Ako želite da budete srećni, nemojte se plašiti da probate nešto novo, da menjate okolinu i da učite sve što još niste naučili.

Trcanje, hodanje:  fizičko opterećenje – to je stres za telo. Čim se završi opterećenje stresom, izlučuje se endorfin. Njega luči hipofiza kao nagradu i sličan je opijatima (npr. morfijum), koji smanjuju bol i podižu raspoloženje.

Nije potrebno da trčite maratone, čak i obična šetnja može da pravi čuda. Ne smatraju je uzalud mnogi pisci i kompozitori obaveznim uslovom za kreativni proces.

Iscekivanje neceg prijatnog : proces iščekivanja zadovoljstva, na primer hrane ili seksa, sličan je refleksu lučenja pljuvačke, koji je otkrio Pavlov. Naš mozak oseća naročito zadovoljstvo kada predoseti da će se nešto prijatno desiti.

Zato mi volimo da brojimo sate i minute do nekog posebnog trenutka – rođendana, svadbe, susreta s prijateljem, ili jednostavno, do kraja radnog dana.


Rješavajte probleme jedan po jedan

Šta se dešava: mozak 24 sata traži rešenje za svaki problem koji nas muči. Na to se troši mnogo energije, zato osećamo nervozu i razdražljivost ako se mozak već umorio, a rešenja i dalje nema.

Ali za svako rešenje on povećava sebi porciju neurotransmitera, koji umiruju limbički sistem i pomažu nam da ponovo vidimo svet u najboljem njegovom izdanju. Zato je zaista najbolje da rešavamo probleme jedan po jedan.

Zapisujte :  kada jednostavno vidimo nešto neprijatno i kada govorimo o tome što nam se ne dopada, aktiviraju se različiti delovi mozga.

U drugom slučaju neprijatne emocije slabije utiču na čoveka. Zato je korisno da iskažete sve što vam se nakupi, pa će mozak početi da luči serotonin, čak će izvući i nešto pozitivno iz svake neprijatnosti.


Pred važan razgovor, nastup ili neki događaj, koji utiče na vas da se osećate nervozno, jednostavno uzmite žvakaću gumu ili jedite nešto.

Jer, niko ne jede neposredno pred opasnost. Zato dok žvaćemo, naš mozak misli da nema opasnosti i može da se opusti. On šalje signal, koji smanjuje nervnu napetost i pomaže nam da se smirimo.

Ako niste zadovoljni odgovorom sagovornika ili vam se čini da nije rekao sve do kraja, jednostavno nastavite da ga gledate pravo u oči.

U takvoj situaciji tišina sagovorniku postaje toliko neprijatna, da postaje prinuđen da vam sve ispriča, samo kako bi je prekinuo.,

Ljudi najbolje pamte ono što se dešava na početku ili na kraju dana, a svega između se sećaju površno. Zato važan sastanak zakažite za kraj ili početak dana. A na razgovor za posao dođite ili prvi ili poslednji.

 Ljutnja je instrumentalna emocija. Mi se ljutimo, zato što želimo pravdu. Zato što mislimo da ćemo imati korist od toga. Zato što smatramo: što smo više ljuti, time možemo učiniti više promena. Ljutnja ne razume da je prošlost već završena i šteta je već načinjena. Ona kaže da će osveta sve ispraviti.

Istina o ljutnji je takva: to je odbijanje lečenja. Vi se plašite, vama je strašno, jer, kad rana zaraste, moraćete živeti u novoj, nepoznatoj vam koži. A vi želite vratiti staru. I vaša ljutnja vam šapuće da je najbolje ne zaustavljati krvarenje.

Kada u vama sve kuva, praštanje izgleda nemoguće. Želimo da oprostimo jer naš um shvata da je to zdrav izbor. Želimo mir, spokoj, koji nudi oproštaj. Želimo da se oslobodimo. Želimo da ova vreva u mozgu prestane, ali ništa sa sobom ne možemo uraditi.

Zato što nam glavnu stvar o praštanju niko nikad nije rekao: ono ništa neće  ispraviti. Ono nije gumica koja će izbrisati sve što vam se dogodilo. Ono neće ukinuti bol sa kojim ste živeli, neće vam pružiti momentalno smirenje. Traženje unutrašnjeg mira – to je dug i težak put. Praštanje je samo ono što će vam  omogućiti da izbegnete „dehidraciju“ na tom putu.

Praštanje je odustajanje od nade.. To je shvatanje da je sve gotovo, prašina se slegla i ništa se ne može vratiti prvobitnom obliku. To je priznanje toga da se nikakvom magijom ne može popraviti šteta. Da, oluja je bila nepravedna, ali ipak,  morate živeti u porušenom gradu. I nikakva ljutnja ga neće podići iz ruševina. Moraćete to uraditi sami.

Praštanje je preuzimanje lične odgovornosti  – ne za uništenje, već za obnavljanje. Ovo je odluka o tome kako povratiti svoj mir.

Praštanje ne znači da morate biti prijatelji sa onima koji su vam naneli bol. Vi, jednostavno, razumete da su oni ostavili trag, i sada ćete živeti sa takvim ožiljkom. Prestaćete čekati čoveka koji vas je slomio, da bi on vratio sve „kako je bilo“. Počećete lečiti rane, nezavisno od toga hoće li ožiljci ostati. Nastavite živeti dalje sa svojim ožiljcima.

Zamisli najgore posledice koje može da izazove tvoj postupak, unapred se pomiri sa njima i onda dejstvuj.

Budite zauzeti. To je najjeftiniji lek na svetu, i jedan od najefektivnijih.
— Dale Carnegie
Ljudima u snu duh luta, u budnom stanju tela im žure. Sve što susreću, upetljava ih. Dan za danom, koriste svoj duh za sukobe; nekad velike, nekad lukave, nekad sitničave. Njihovi mali strahovi su zli i drhtavi, veliki strahovi su jezivi i preplavljujući. Izleću kao strele iz samostrela, ubeđeni da su nadležni da sude o dobrom i lošem. Prianjaju uz svoj položaj kao bogom dani, sigurni da ih nosi ka pobedi. Blede kao jesen i zima i tako sahnu dan za danom. Dave se u onom što rade - ne možeš ih navesti da se vrate. Oni postaju mračni, kao zapečaćeni - takvi su ishodi njihovih poznih godina.
— Chuang Tzu
Čamac se može skloniti u zatonu; mreža se može skloniti u jezeru; za njih se može reći da su sasvim bezbedni. Medutim, snažan čovek može da dođe u ponoć i odnese ih na leđima. Neuki ne vide, bez obzira koliko dobro sklanjali stvari - manje ili veće - uvek postoji mogućnost da se izgube. Ali ako svemir sklonite u svemir, više neće imati gde da se izgubi. To je velika istina stvari. Stoga mudrac pravi izlete u ono što se ne može izgubiti i ostaje zajedno s tim.
— Chuang Tzu
