Go Not To The Temple

Go Not To The Temple

Go not to the temple to put flowers upon the feet of God,
First fill your own house with the Fragrance of love.

Go not to the temple to light candles before the altar of God,
First remove the darkness of sin from your heart.

Go not to the temple to bow down your head in prayer,
First learn to bow in humility before your fellowmen.

Go not to the temple to pray on bended knees,
First bend down to lift someone who is downtrodden.

Go not to the temple to ask for forgiveness for your sins,
First forgive from your heart those who have sinned against you.

-Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore was the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. He was a poet, mystic, author, playwright, songwriter, artist, educator, freedom fighter, and an intellectual stalwart who shaped the destiny of an entire subcontinent.

The Date

What is the best gift we can give our loved ones? The answer will be no surprise- The gift of time! While it may seem artificial to mark some days as “father’s day” or “mother’s day”, after all we don’t stop being fathers or mothers or daughters or sons when the day is gone, it is still worthwhile to take the extra effort and gift our loved ones the “gift of time” on such special days.

Mom, Are You Okay?

Hi Mom

I had a blind date last night. But I was concerned – What do I do if she’s really someone I don’t like at all ? I’ll be stuck with her with no easy way out.

Turns out, there’s an app for that.

It’s called “Mom Are You Ok”. It schedules your phone to ring just after you meet her.

If you like her, you ignore it.

If you want to cut short the date, you answer with, “Mom ? What’s the matter ? Are you okay ?”

It works every time.

So I knocked on the girl’s door. Turns out I needn’t have worried.

She was gorgeous! I couldn’t get over how attractive she was!!

Just as I was about to speak to her, her phone rang.

She answered it and said, “Mom, what’s the matter ? Are you okay ?” !!!
