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.

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.


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’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:(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.


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!

Shed tagline "I am busy!"

Today’s world, one of the greatest challenge-we face- is of having ‘too much’ of information but we don’t really know what to do about it.

Information about anything & everything is easily available in digital platform, that keep us engaged in mining more and more on daily basis.

Have we ever thought why we are mining it religiously?

What goal we are trying to achieve out of it?

What are we loosing or gaining in this mindless race of ‘knowing more’ and utlising rare few?

All we have been able to figure out as response to above queries is sweet and classy excuse: I am (very) busy these days!!

We don’t realised about it until we introspect or we are reminded (of course by those who care about us)  

So what we can do about it!!

Let’s try a simple exercise:-

Ingredients that can make one happy-

Energy + Time + Money

We can make ourselves happy by focusing energy & time towards what will make us happy, including working (Money) but just in different way.

Start will happen by clearing down our mind. It’s not easy but when you put in prospective, it is possible.

Our mind is occupied by points which can bring us joy! More at the same time it also has few points which annoy us. But we end up doing those annoying thing in social pressure or as mandatory norms of our routine.

Now that the few points, which eats up our time & energy and we are left with no time, hence an excuse “I am too busy”!!

We have to make an effort to clear-up those ‘annoy’ to make room for joy and time for yourself so that you can do-meet-chat with those who care about you & vice-versa!

Honesty & Politeness can help you to easily sail thorough NOT-SORRY Sea and tackle guilt.

 1.      Make a list of both points at start of week/month

 2.    Categories then as joy or annoy.

 3.    Try to be honest & polite, when declining annoy as well as well in advance.

 4.    Remember 'not' to commit to annoy points and decline at last moment, which is far worse, and you may be seen as stupid/unreliable/add any common slang of your preference.

Sample done for you!

Go to work
Do it
Mandatory training & meeting
Kind of annoy
Do it as job demand
Session/Charity of your co-worker, you don’t care about
Decline in advance
Doing your actual job
Do it
Attending a going away lunch party of someone whom you don’t even like.
Never commit but decline in advance

You have already saved time for yourself to spend with people who cares about you and you are happy to be with them.

Say - Good bye to “I am busy”, it’s not cool anymore!

Research have stated that people who are always with “I am busy” tagline are ‘unpleasant person’ and are more likely to be suffering from acute depression and future loneliness.

On lighter note:-
Hey any link about the research you are referring to?
Sorry guys, I just made it up!! But if you continue with tagline, do pass me your details in comments -- surely you can be the subject of case topic.

Thank you!

Define Fear !

Back in 2013, October - I had written a blog related to Fear named:

Fear - Which type is considered to be greatest by human!

We all have a habit of setting goals in life and work toward achieving it. 

On lighter note – “depending on which age group we are in” sometime end of setting few more goals to achieve the earlier goals & life goes on…..

We always meet various people on our daily routine life; we talk and share good, not so good experiences, few inspire us, other we ignore & again life goes on….

Have we ever thought why not lets define our fear instead of our goals?

What? Isn’t it strange? 

Yes, it does sounds strange because majority of us might have never tried it so far…and surely have pulled ourselves back due to it and probably got into cycle of setting and re-setting goals.

Seneca the Younger (c. 4 BC – AD 65) who was famous Roman Stoic philosopher had rightly pointed out that:-

We suffer more often in imagination than in reality

His idea about fear setting has been rightly documented by Timothy "Tim" Ferriss in his self-help book as following

What if I …<<fear>>….?

Cost of Inaction (Financially – Emotionally- Physically)
6 month
1 year
3 year

It is really interesting and worth trying , in case you have monkey mind.

I would like to leave you with thought provoking quote by Jerzy Gregorek

Easy Choices, Hard Life!

Hard Choices, Easy life!!

Thank you!
