Simple Yet Elegant teaching of Gautam Buddha

Buddha, meaning 'one who is awake' in the sense of having 'woken up to reality' was the title first given to Lord Buddha.

Siddhartha Gautama was born in 563 BCE in Lumbini, Nepal as a son of Shuddhodhana, the king of Kapilavastu and his Queen, Mayadevi.


Key Buddha teaching:-

Physical charms attract the eyes, Goodness attract the mind.

                                            *****

Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your unguarded thoughts.

                                            *****

If you light a lamp for somebody, It will also brighten your path.

                                            *****

Buddha was asked: "What have you gained from meditation"
He replied : Nothing, However Buddha said: Let me tell you what I lost: Anger, Anxiety, Depression, Insecurity, fear of old age and death.

                                            *****

Three things cannot be hidden for long : Sun, Moon & Truth.

                                            *****

It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.

                                            *****

No one save us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.

                                            *****

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.

                                            *****

A Spiritual look at TIME & SPACE

Time is Human idea. If you have got time then definitely there is space too.

The ordinary laws of physics, operating within time, are inherently unable to explain the beginning of time.

The Vedas, the earliest texts on Indian philosophy and Hindu philosophy, dating back to the late 2nd millennium BC, describe ancient Hindu cosmology, in which the universe goes through repeated cycles of creation, destruction, and rebirth, with each cycle lasting 4,320,000 years.

source: Web

As Sadhguru asks that: 

Have you ever experienced a yesterday or a tomorrow?

You can remember yesterdays, you can imagine tomorrows, but they are only ideas. In your experience, no such thing has ever happened. Your experience of life has always been right here and now. Your experience of life is happening in this very moment. So time is a human idea. There is no such thing in this existence.

Time and space are essential dimensions for physical creation.

In contrast to ancient Greek philosophers who believed that the universe had an infinite past with no beginning, medieval philosophers and theologians developed the concept of the universe having a finite past with a beginning, now known as Temporal finitism. 

"An actual infinite cannot exist."
"An infinite temporal regress of events is an actual infinite."
"An infinite temporal regress of events cannot exist."

 To be continue...
This blogs has been compiled out of interest after reading various sources such as wiki, Sadhguru teaching and few stanzas of Vedas.

Kubernetes - Secrets Creation & management

Kubernetes is an orchestration tool for containerization technologies such as dockers.

A single dockers server can be managed using docker itself but when we need multiple dockers server management from single software to build a highly available dockers cluster, then we require an orchestration like Kubernetes.

Secrets: is an object that contains small amount of secret data such as a password, a token or a key. It belongs to specific kubernetes Namespace.
It reduces the risk of exposing sensitive data to unwanted entities.
It is created outside of Pods same like ConfigMaps. The size of secrets cannot exceed 1 Mb.

Secrets are registered with Kubernetes Master. It can be mounted as volume (i.e flat file) or exposed as environment variables.

Secrets is only sent to the Node hosting the Pod that requires access.

Handy commands to creates secrets in kubernetes:

kubectl create -f secret.yaml

To view all the secrets:-

kubectl get secrets

To view secret-env.yaml file which has Pod defined contaning environment variable populated from previously created secret:-

cat secret-env.yaml

For UI based Kubernetes references.

Great Indians of Ancient India! - PART (3)

In January 2014, I had assembled information on similar topic as part 2, Here is continuation of few more great Indians of ancient India as part 3.




BarhmaGupta

Barhma Gupta:(Lived 597 – 668 AD)

Brahmagupta was an Ancient Indian astronomer and mathematician. He was born in the city of Bhinmal in Northwest India. His father, whose name was Jisnugupta, was an astrologer. He introduced negative number and operations on zero into mathematics

He was the first person to discover the formula for solving quadratic equations.



Bhaskaracharya

Bhaskaracharya:

Bhaskaracharya’s ‘Siddhanta Shiromani’ is considered as the pinnacle of all the astronomical works of those 700 years.

He accurately calculated the time that earth took to revolve around the Sun as 365.2588 days that is a difference of 3 minutes of modern acceptance of 365.2563 days. This was much before Leibniz or Newton could come up with Differential or Integral Calculus and to explain the forces of gravity. He was the first to conceive the Differential Coefficient and Differential Calculus.

Bhaskaracharya was a teacher, mathematician and an astronomer. He also headed the Astronomical Observatory in Ujjain that was the learning center of India. His contribution to Astronomy and Mathematics in the 12th century was unparalleled and significant.


Tulsidas
Tulsidas:(born in Rajpur, in the district of Banda in Uttar Pradesh, in Samvat 1589 or 1532 A.D.)

Tulsidas did not cry at the time of his birth. He was born with all the thirty-two teeth intact. In childhood his name was Tulsiram or Ram Bola.

Tulsidas wrote twelve books. The most famous book is his Ramayan—Ram-charit-manas—in Hindi. He wrote this book under the directions of Hanuman. This Ramayan is read and worshiped with great reverence in every Hindu home in Northern India. It is an inspiring book. It contains sweet couplets in beautiful rhyme. Vinaya Patrika is another important book written by Tulsidas.

Memory - Does it define Human?

"Leave the dead to the dead"

Whats comes to your mind? When you read the line in pink.

Surely it is very insensitive or not so compassionate statement.

Correct?

The above line I read from 'Sadhguru' post:-

You must leave the dead to the dead otherwise they will crawl up from the earth and live through you...If you allow them to dominate your system, you will become a bundle of compulsions.



What it has got to do with memory? 

But if you think bit more it’s the most profound statement as well. There are many level of memory. 

I had read somewhere that by doing 'YOGA', At least eight kind of memory can be mastered.

It is told that through yoga, one can touch those 'aspect' of intelligence which is beyond memory. Beyond memory means beyond boundaries also.


Memory is both possibilities as well as limitation.




Popularly knows types of memory are Genetic memory, Conscious memory, Evolutionary memory, Elemental memory, Atomic memory, Karmic memory, Articulate & Inarticulate memory  and many more.

As a person , if we do not make use of Conscious & Karmic memory enough to lead fresh life, or create/innovate something new/better, with age genetic memory will overpower. 

May be that's the reason , why people end up relating each other incident with their ancestor.

Only Human being has power to leave the dead to dead. As for other creature, anyway they will play through them.

We may identify each other through shapes & forms but its memory which signals the 'identify' pulse to identify

So its sounds like it will not be wrong, if we say difference between one person to another is memory.


Thank you!
