compassion or humility ?

there are many out there

trying to develop compassion

what they fail to understand

is that

compassion (complete passion)

is the domain of the divine


even by the common definition

it is the onus of the higher being

to show mercy & forgiveness


what most beings urgently require is to

develop humility towards higher and divine

compassion for the lower will

automatically be taken care of

your blog is worded so elegantly - you point out the absurdity of people's behaviour in such a striking, clarifying way.

and the lotusocean-definition for 'compassion' is so truthful & meaningful - you actually give meaning to the word! your writings are so inspiring & motivating. what a brilliant point - beings that are in need of compassion should direct their efforts towards developing humility!

it's so compassionate of you to set things right and show the beings of this plane the way towards evolution.

I like to read this one it is beautiful.

The emphasis on developing compassion in spiritual groups, like a lot of the Tibetan Buddhist ones, does seem to be about a lot of posing and posturing. It's part of the technique they use, because they think nothing is inherently real so you may as well fake it until you make it... it all seems rather egoic.

Developing humility seems like there is much more nectar there, always remaining lower, so there is always a flow.

this is a brilliant clarification of the fuzzy thinking that happens when the bible is the most influential book instead of a system where everyone is responsible for themselves. I bow.

this is a suPerb clarification !

Yes ! humility towards Higher & Divine is the urgent requirement ! that is never spoken about by people at all ! and if it is it is in the context of someone else, never a quality they need to aim for themselves ! and that too humility towards the evil system is usually what is demanded ! its all so upside down !

the ego is a funny guy for sure. the quality of compassion is much more satisfying to it than that of humility. so great that You PoinT out that compassion = complete passion and is a domain of the Divine. it makes muggle talk about compassion appear totally ludicrous !

it is so great to read Your words of clarity ! Nowhere else is the truth stated as unequivocally !

I Bow !

dhanyavad for Your Divine clarity. i bow.

i bow. this Plog clears uP confusion and offers the real definition of a word that is overly misunderstood and misused.
Your words allow one to see that none but You, Divine One, are caPable of comPassion, which is comPleTe Passion!
one is also able to see that it is only You who can bestow mercy and forgiveness. You show such kindness to guide one to develoP humility. to learn the Truth of ones insignificance, which is unchanging and constant, is so freeing and allows one to turn ones attention to the imPorTance of Divine rather than concern oneself with ones own meaninglessness.
there is no greater being alive on Earth than You! i bow at Your most PresTigious feet.

i bow!
Divine's Plogs Provide the only real education there is!
There could be no greater act of comPassion than these words which helP one see that develoPing humility toward the higher, toward Divine, toward You is the most urgent requirement! The most essential thing for a being to learn in life!
Divine reveals layer after layer of how much useless information, beliefs, and unhumble behavior and attitudes one has picked up in this life and carried over from lifetimes and that ones time is best spent developing humility!
i bow!

Thank you my Lord for your compassion and knowledge which you are showering upon us.

Compassion is surely Divine virtue and Divine is Perfect, Divine don't commit mistakes that is why ParamPita Parmeshwar Shiv is Shiv and JagatPita Narayan is Narayan.

They are not Brahma who created Rohini and later he was behind him so shiv severed his neck. That is why he is not worshipped on earth.

And there are so many God And Goddesses like Indra who lose his position Every Time out of their ignorance.
Bhakt also chooses his Bhagwan based on their Knowledge and Wisdom and don't switch from their choice. Their Bhakti and Tapasya can't be shaken from any outside force.
No other outside evil force can break their Bhakti and their Bishwaash towards their Bhagwan.

That is why Prahlad is Prahlad. He choose Vishnu ji.
That is why Garuna is Garuna and he choose Vishnu ji. He doesn't want nector or anything else in this world other than wish to serve Vishnu ji.

That is why Nandi is Nandi, He choose ParamPita Parmeshwar Shiv for Pooja and that is why seeing his Bhawana, and pure intention of service, he is Shiv’s Permanent ‘Sevak’.

And those Bhakt don't need liberation even they are ready to serve their Bhagwan eternally.

Like when even Vishnu ji came on earth as avtar Shri Ram, Sheshnaag came as Lakshman Avtar.
And again when he came as Shri Krishna Avtar, Sheshnaag again appeared as Balarama.

I see those Virtue, that divinity of ShivNarayan in you O my Lord !!

O My Lord !! Please accept my pure intention of service like Nandi and Sheshnaag, Garuna and Prahlad toward you and nothing else.

! bow to you my Lord !!!

Swati said...

Thank you once again my Lord !!

Truly said, lower being certainly need to develop humility.

Not because it is really required to sit in front of Divine.

Otherwise also because of knowing the fact,that I came in this world and whatever I am today as my body, mind and soul and inherent intellect,intution or soul level. All are not created by me, whatever my soul level is all because of Divine wish.if nothing is mine in this world even as an individual then best would be to surrender in the feet of Divine.

I surrender myself in your feet O my Lord !!!
Please accept my obeisance !!

! bow to you.

Swati said...

O Compassionate One !!

Please take all vices away and ego of mine and let me struggle more to make myself worthy sitting in your feet !!


!bow to you O my Lord !!
