Bholeynath Ka Prasad

“One should simply follow the instructions of the Lord and His empowered servants. Their instructions are all good for us, and any intelligent person will perform them as instructed. However, one should guard against trying to imitate their actions. One should not try to drink the ocean of poison in imitation of Lord Siva.” (Shrimad-Bhagvatam 10.33.30)

Lord Shiva or Shankar or Bholeynath or Mahadev stated as the god of destruction or more precisely the god of transformation.When the “Samudra Manthan” was happening, he drinks the “vish”(poison) from the ocean to save the world. This is the reason of his blue throat and that’s why he is called “Neelkanth”. Mythology says that he consumes cannabis just to cool down his body due to the temperature rise due to poison in his throat.

But now he is popular among youth as the coolest god because he smokes weed. Yes! It is true. Go outside and ask any person who consumes Ganja(Weed) or bhaang(cannabis) about why does he do it? The most common answer is “Bhai hum to Boley ke bhakt hain.” Even though he/she doesn’t know a thing about Mahadev.

This is very nasty that people who doesn’t even know anything regarding about Shiva smoke weed just because he smokes Ganja and describe themselves a “Bhakt” of Mahadev.

So why many people consume it even if they know that smoking weed is dangerous to their health.

The reason behind this is the consumption of this by Naga Babas or Agorhis. We know that those Babas smoke Ganja regularly. But in reality they smoke it helps them to concentrate their mind during doing many Yogic Pratices, to worship god,  which are very difficult to do otherwise. But people find a good reason to support intoxicants because it helps them to bring themselves close to god.

So, they start hiding their bad addiction saying “Ye to bholeynath ka prasad hai”

Another reason for this is songs about Mahadev. Not the bhajans. But the songs like Bholeynath se mila do(Milind Gaba), Bum Bum Bholey (by leo and lil. golu) etc. They get inspired by Bob Marley  songs. They play trance songs and listen all day to songs like these. (I am not disdaining Bob Marley. He was a great musicians.)

I am not saying these kind of songs will be banned. These songs are only for entertainment purposes but people get the other meaning of them.

Although smoking ganja has also many health advantages like in cough related problems and in epilepsy and it is less intoxic than nicotine and alcohol. But it will only work when it is taken under medical prescription. Otherwise on regular basis it is very harmful like sleeplessness, respiratory illness, paranoia and most dangerous addiction etc.

Also a main reason for its popularity is its easy availability.

Under Narcotic_Drugs_and_Psychotropic_Substances_Act,_1985 consumption of charas, ganja etc. are banned and production of bhaang is under the control of Indian government. But you can find it very easily in your locality.

I don’t have any problems with people who consume intoxicants and I don’t care about their health. I just want to say that please don’t use god for this. You are not a Baba or Aghori and you are not practicing like them.  You are not even 1% of Lord Shiva. He smokes weed to depict that he takes all the goods and bads of people. Just accept the fact that you smoke weed because you want to, not because of Lord Shiva.

“The important thing is not to know why he(Shiva) smokes it. The important thing is to know that he can smokes it, while we can’t.” – S.D. Adhikari (ISCKON)

This is your life. YOU HAVE TO FIGHT!!

Fight Club is one of the movie that gets you thinking about how you ruined your life for the sake of society. It is the exact representation of how people think about their lives and how they want to increase their  so called standard in society. There are certain aspects of Fight Club that we can directly apply  to our everyday lifestyle and general thinking.

The Narrator in movie symbolizes the current version of ourselves; someone who simply struggles through life and earns money only to buy things  he doesn’t need only to convince himself. There is nothing special or extraordinary about him.

But Tyler Durden is the ultimate fantasy of every ordinary person in the world. He is sexy, strong and independent man who lives by his own rules, and  doesn’t care about fake standards of living created by this society.

Every single one of us has those two sides. Tyler represents a successful version of ourselves – how we actually want to be.

“People do it everyday, they talk to themselves… they see themselves as they’d like to be, they don’t have the courage you have, to just run with it.”

We are constantly battling who I am versus who I want to be.

Most of us are in Narrator mode. As a kid we’ve many dreams for our future life. But as we grow up we just want to raise our standard in society by working hard, making money and buy things that we don’t even need. We act,talk and be like a gentlemen just to impress people. In reality, we all are slave of appearances. In between this we all forget what we really want to do.

“We’ve all been raised on television that one day we’d all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very very pissed off.”

At the end, we’re convinced but not happy. We think that this is our purpose of living.

Most people think that they cannot be as cool as Tyler simply because they are not as good-looking or charismatic or smoke cigarettes or fight like him. But In his own words: “All the ways you wish you could be, that’s me. I look like you wanna look, I fuck like you wanna fuck, I am smart, capable, and most importantly, I am free in all the ways that you are not.”

It doesn’t matter what color your skin or hair is, how short or tall you are or whether you’re rich or poor. What matters is your charisma, character, and confidence.If you think of yourself as weak, you will project that in your actions. People will see that, and won’t show you much respect. Because of that, you will feel like an unappreciated outcast. All of this will make you feel angry and powerless, destroying your confidence.

In contrast, if you manage to think of yourself as a strong and powerful individual and act like that, you will walk with pride. People will love the energy you send out and will treat you with respect as the member of Fight Club respects Tyler.

Don’t think your life has been destined to all the shit society called standard. Don’t blame your parents or the time period you’re born or the responsibilities that bulldozed on you. Define yourself by who you are – “nothing”

“You are not the beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everything else”

Don’t rush behind being perfect or being complete. Don’t worry about the outcome of your actions. If you’re going to evolve and grow as a creative person, you’re going to make mistakes. In fact, you should start making twice as many mistakes as soon as possible if you want to have an innovative breakthrough.

Make mistakes and  let the chips fall where they may.

Don’t worry about everything going according to plan. In fact, if everything’s going according to plan, there’s a good chance nothing remarkable is getting done.

When we talk about fear, risk, mistakes, and losing it all, what are we really afraid of?  We are afraid of losing the standard in society by losing the stuff we own. So leave all assumptions of civilization, more importantly material possession.

“It’s only after we’ve lost everything, that we’re free to do anything.”

I’m not saying give all your stuff away or take foolish risks that harm your family or yourself. I’m saying don’t let the stuff you own start to own you to the point that you can’t live the life you want to live and do the things you want to do.

Tyler Durden is a fascinating character, and most people see him as a cool-looking badass who smokes, fights, and drops mad theory about life. But try to look beyond the overly simplistic surface; I urge you to see him as your inspiration to become everything you ever wanted, but were too scared to try.In other words:

“Little by little, you’re just letting yourself become….Tyler Durden.”
