Happy Norooz!

Norooz Lady (Happy Norooz!)
Norooz, Persian New Year!
Year of 2566 (1386)
In harmony with rebirth of nature, the Persian New Year Celebration, or Norooz, always begins on the first day of spring, March 20th of each year. Norooz ceremonies are symbolic representations of two ancient concepts – the End and Rebirth. About 3000 years ago Persian’s major religion was Zoroastrianism, named in honor of its founder Zoroaster, and arguably the world’s first monotheistic religion. Zoroastrians had a festival called “Farvardgan” which lasted ten days, and took place at the end of the solar year. It appears that this was a festival of sorrow and mourning , signifying the end of life while the festival of Norooz, at the beginning of spring signified rebirth, and was a time of great joy and celebration. Norooz was officially acknowledged and named “Norooz” by mythical Persian emperor, Shah Jamshid, from Achaemenid Dynasty (500 BC). Ashaemenied created the first major empire in the region and built Persepolis complex (Takhte Jamshid) in the city of Shiraz. Norooz in Persian means “New Day” and brings hope, peace and prosperity to the world and has been celebrated among people regardless of ethnic background, political views or religion in many countries around the globe such as Iran, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Georgia, Iraq, Tajikistan, Syria ,Armenia and India. Some of the activities during Norooz are Spring cleaning, buying new cloths, painting eggs, family reunion, giving presents, visiting neighbors and friends and celebrating by having a picnic on the 13th day of Spring. Happy Norooz!

The Soul…

How long, my soul, will you continuein lamenting,
whilst yet sensible of my weakness?
until when will you cry out,
whilst yet I have naught save the speech of men,
to tell therein your dreams?
The human heart cries out for help the human soul implores us for deliverance;
but we do not heed their cries,
for we neither hear nor undrestand.
But the man who hears and understands,
we cal mad;
and flee from him….
(Gibran Khalil Gibran)

Everythings Finished!?

Some times I think everythings finished!!!

My heart will go on…

Every night in my dreams I see you, I feel you,
That is how I know you go on.
Far across the distance and spaces between us
You have come to show you go on.
Near, far, wherever you are,
I believe that the heart does go on.
Once more, you open the door
And you’re here in my heart,
And my heart will go on and on.
Love can touch us one time and last for a lifetime,
And never let go till we’re gone.
Love was when I loved you, one true time I hold to.
In my life we’ll always go on.
Near, far, wherever you are,
I believe that the heart does go on.
Once more, you open the door
And you’re here in my heart,
And my heart will go on and on.
You’re here, there’s nothing to fear,
And I know that my heart will go on.
We’ll stay forever this way.
You are safe in my heart,
And my heart will go on and on.

Three strange wishes of the Great Alexander!

There is very instructive incident involving the life of Alexander, the great Greek king.
Alexander, after conquering many kingdoms, was returning home.
On the way, he fell ill and it took him to his death bed.
With death staring him in his face, Alexander realized how his conquests, his great army, his sharp sword and all his wealth were of no consequence.
He now longed to reach home to see his mother’s face and bid her his last adieu.
But, he had to accept the fact that his sinking health would not permit Him to reach his distant homeland.
So, The mighty conqueror lay prostrate and pale, helplessly waiting to breathe his last.
He called his generals and said, “I will depart from this world soon,I have three wishes, please carry them out without fail.”
“With tears flowing down Their cheeks, the generals agreed to abide by their king’s last wishes.”
“My first desire is that,” said Alexander,” My physicians alone must carry my coffin.” After a pause, he continued, ” Secondly, I desire that when my coffin is being carried to the grave, the path leading to the graveyard be strewn with gold, silver and precious stones which I have collected in my treasury.
“The king felt exhausted after saying this. He took a minute’s rest and continued. “My third and last wish is that both my hands be kept dangling out of my coffin .”
The people who had gathered there wondered at the king’s strange wishes.
But no one dare bring the question to their lips.
Alexander’s favorite general kissed his hand and pressed them to his heart. ” O king, we assure you that your wishes will all be fulfilled.
But tell us why do you make such strange wishes?”
At this Alexander took a deep breath and said:”I would like the world to know of the three lessons I have just learnt. I want my physicians to carry my coffin because people should realize that no doctor can really cure any body.
They are powerless and cannot save a person from the clutches of death.
So let not people take life for granted.
The second wish of strewing gold, silver and other riches on the way to the graveyard is to tell People that not even a fraction of gold will come with me. I spent all my life earning riches but cannot take anything with me. Let people realize that it is a sheer waste of time to chase wealth.
And about my third wish of having my hands dangling out of the coffin, I wish people to know that I came empty handed into this world and empty handed I go out of this world.”
With these words, the king closed his eyes.
Soon he let death conquer him and breathed his last…

Beauty of a Woman!

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
The place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she shows.
The beauty of a woman
With time, only grows…
