Two sides of the same coin……

If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?

WP_001354

Until I read, I cannot learn

Until I learn , I cannot earn

the wisdom , for which I forever yearn

Until I earn , I cannot return

to the world ,when it is my turn

Until I return , I cannot spurn

the evil called ignorance

Until I spurn , I cannot let burn

the torch to inaugurate my passion

to use my words and ideas to churn

my  own space called ‘Pen’lightenment !

Knowledge weathers all storm – ( weekly photo challenge – minimalist – 2 )

A Buddhist  Gompa , Arunachal Pradesh ,India

A Buddhist Gompa , Arunachal Pradesh ,India

According to me this picture , shot  in Arunachal pradesh , India , is truly minimalist . I love the,  silhouette of the Buddhist Gompa   ,  looking proud and resilient ,  against  the turbulent evening sky  . A buddhist gompa , is a fortification  of learning , lineage and sadhana ( meditation ) ….Most of them follow a general , sacred geometrical mandala design .

To me this picture , is symbolic . It depicts , in a sort of understated manner , the power of knowledge and learning . The fact that  Education can weather any storm , and  enable one to face the world without fear.

Knowledge – religious , spiritual , scientific ,social , psychological  , can transcend boundaries of caste , color or creed , and raise a person to a high pedestal , braving all odds. 

Knowledge and Education  are two sides of the same coin , and it is this coin which is the key to all social and economic problems faced by the world .

‘EDUCATION IS THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON WHICH YOU CAN USE , TO CHANGE THE WORLD.’ Nelson Mandela
