Introduction:

Welcome to the era of Religious, Caste, Cult and Sect Robotisation. Congratulations! till now either you have already become or are in the process of being converted into Religious Robots.

Ingredients:

  • Human being with a ready mind.
  • Customs,rituals and guidelines of a caste/ cult/sect/religion.

Procedure:

  1. Convert a section of your brain into a sealed and secured space labelled CASTE/CULT/SECT/RELIGION.
  2. Feed all the principles and rules laid down by your Caste/cult/sect/religion under the guidance of your trainer.Take care that no other thought is allowed to enter or leave this section of your brain.
  3. DON’T DARE to question or try to test on logic any of these principles and rules, remember you are just a petty human being not qualified to do so.
  4. Wander in all the religious places to search for God except inside your own heart.
  5. DON’T DARE to be overconfident enough to think that finding God is as easy as searching and cleansing your soul. It is the most difficult and complicated task which you can never accomplish without mediators who are the only ones to lead you along the difficult path.
  6. Ensure that you are reasonably scared that you will be punished by some mishap or any other way if you miss following any of the customs or rituals at any given time.
  7. Have firm belief that Truth is only what is taught by your cult/caste/sect/religion. No truth exists beyond it.
  8. DON’T DARE get any original ideas, remember you deserve only to be a Follower.
  9. Never think that you are a part of God and therefore can find him inside your own heart.
  10. Last but not the least, DON’T let any Logical thoughts contaminate the secured religious compartment in your brain, you are supposed to live and die with the data inside without attempting to change or research it.

Conclusion:

Hereby, we conclude that if you follow and fulfill these 10 GOLDEN RULES, you have qualified to become a Religious Robot. Now your Trainers just have to provide a slightest trigger and you will do the needful without thinking and questioning.

Remarks:

  • Now you are welcome to Laugh/ Cry/Celebrate if you find this to be a Joke/Tragedy/Achievement.
  • Lastly, even after all this training if you do get any original ideas, start a new Cult/Sect/Religion…you are sure to have followers…everyone does.

Yours sincerely,

Still struggling to graduate,

Mani.

 P.S. Forgot to mention…Please don’t forget to take a Guarantee from your trainers that in case you are reborn, you MUST be blessed with the same caste/cult/sect/religion otherwise all the efforts you are undertaking will be so futile if the contrary happens..All The Best 🙂

(Ajab hairaan hun Bhagwan,tumhein kyun-kar rijhaaun mein

…..I am strangely perplexed Dear God , How do I please you

Koi vastu nahin aisi jise sewa mein laaun mein) 2

…….There is nothing which I can use for this purpose

 

Karun kis taur aawahan ki tum sarvatra vyaapak ho 2

……How do I call upon you as you are Universal, present everywhere

Niraadar hai bulaane ko ,agar ghanti bajaaun mein

…….It is disrespectful if I ring a bell to call upon you

Ajab hairaan hun Bhagwan,tumhein kyun-kar rijhaaun mein

…..I am strangely perplexed Dear God , How do I please you

 

Tumhin ho moorti mein bhi, tumhi vyaapak ho phoolon mein

……You are present in statues as well as flowers

Bhala Bhagwaan par Bhagwaan ko kyun-kar chadhaaun mein

……How do I offer God himself to God

Ajab hairaan hun Bhagwan,tumhein kyun-kar rijhaaun mein

…..I am strangely perplexed Dear God , How do I please you

 

Lagaana bhog kuchh tumko, ye ek apmaan karna hai 2

……Trying to feed you is an insult

Khilaata hai jo sab jag ko, use kyun-kar khilaaun mein

…….You feed the whole world, how can I feed you

Ajab hairaan hun Bhagwan,tumhein kyun-kar rijhaaun mein

…..I am strangely perplexed Dear God , How do I please you

Tumhaari jyoti se roshan hain Suraj ,Chaand aur Taare 2

…..Your radiance lights up Sun, Moon and Stars

Mahaa andher hai kaise tumhein Deepak dikhaaun mein

…..It is very unfortunate if I show a lamp to you

Ajab hairaan hun Bhagwan,tumhein kyun-kar rijhaaun mein

…..I am strangely perplexed Dear God , How do I please you

 

 

Bhujaaein hain naa gardan hai naa seena hai naa peshaani 2

…..You don’t have arms, neck, chest or forehead

Tum ho nirlep Naarayan, kahaan chandan lagaaun mein

……Nothing can be applied to you God, where do I put the sandalwood paste

Ajab hairaan hun Bhagwan,tumhein kyun-kar rijhaaun mein

…..I am strangely perplexed Dear God , How do I please you

 

Bade naadaan hain we jan jo ghadte aapki moorat 2

….Ignorant are those who make your idols

Banaata hai jo sab jag ko use kyun-kar banaaun mein

…..You create the whole world, how can I create you

Ajab hairaan hun Bhagwan,tumhein kyun-kar rijhaaun mein

…..I am strangely perplexed Dear God , How do I please you

Koi vastu nahin aisi jise sewa mein laaun mein

…….There is nothing which I can use for this purpose

Ajab hairaan hun Bhagwan,tumhein kyun-kar rijhaaun mein 2

…..I am strangely perplexed Dear God , How do I please you

The lyrics and translation are taken from wikipedia…….

वैष्णव जन तो तेने कहिये जे पीड पराई जाणे रे,

पर दु:खे उपकार करे तोये मन अभिमान न आणे रे,

सकल लोकमां सहुने वंदे निंदा न करे केनी रे,

वाच काछ मन निश्चल राखे धन धन जननी तेनी रे,

समदृष्टि ने तृष्णा त्यागी, परस्त्री जेने मात रे,

जिह्वा थकी असत्य न बोले,परधन नव झाले हाथ रे,

मोह माया व्यापे नहि जेने,दृढ़ वैराग्य जेना मनमां रे,

रामनाम शुं ताली रे लागी,सकल तीरथ तेना तनमां रे,

वणलोभी ने कपटरहित छे,काम क्रोध निवार्या रे,

भणे नरसैयॊ तेनु दरसन करतां,कुल एकोतेर तार्या रे ॥

English Translation……

He who understands the pain of others is one of God’s own.

Helping others in sorrow does not reduce his humility.

This person respects all people in the world,

and does not condemn or criticize anyone.

He is pure in speech, deed and thought.

His mother is blessed indeed!

He is equanimous and has given up all desires.

To him, other women are [equivalent to] mothers.

He never speaks the untruth, not even if his tongue is tired.

He does not covet others’ wealth.

Delusion and attachment do not affect him,

his mind is firm in detachment.

He is ever engrossed in God’s name and meditation,

and he embodies all places of pilgrimage.

Such a person has no greed and deceit.

He has overcome lust and anger.

Narsi says: Such a person is worthy of worship,

and alone elevates his entire race.
