When can NIRVANA be Enjoyed: कैसे भोगे मोह से छूटने का आनंद

It is often said “मोह से मुक्त हो जाये तो मोक्ष की ओर पहला कदम बढ़ा लिया” that is if you leave all the desires then you are step closer to Nirvana. But when can person enjoy Niravana is the biggest question.

Can it be achieved overnight?
Can it make person feel more content?
When can person be out of wishes circle? 

What is moksha - AuraOfThoughts

The below hindi poetry states the various situations where a person doesn’t understand the loop of desires and wishes and how the same situations help him/her to attain a gateway of Niravana.

जग में जो भी आया , निरस्तर चला जा रहा;
कहाँ मंज़िल कहाँ ठिकाना, हर जवाब से अंजाना |
जब नहीं समझता सब मोह है, सब माया है!

6 Ways to be part of SWACHH BHARAT Campaign

“I will not let anyone to walk through my mind with their dirty feet”quote by Mahatma Gandhi has a lot to convey. On 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, we are in the nation that was built with tons of hard work & sacrifices of many people.

Pure heart and mind with positive approach is certainly strong enough to drive away negativity and can always welcome new constructive changes. Mahatma Gandhi's words left a significant impact on us are so much alive in our hearts. He always taught to start doing things without wasting time and set an example for others, and mentioned, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world”He did what others thought and said while others were thinking; his thoughts brought a change in our country.

In view of bringing cleanliness part of nation, “Swachh Bharat” campaign was started on 2nd October 2014, birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. Let us explore more about the campaign and how this will benefit our nation.

What is Swachh Bharat Campaign?

Swachh means 'purity' in all essence and aspects. It is a drive 

initiated by Indian Prime Minister, Mr Narendra Modi, to fulfill a long desired dream of Gandhi Ji to see India clean and Green. It is a drive which focuses on garbage management, Sanitation and self cleanliness. 

The message is very clearly conveyed to all the citizens of the country by a very inspiring slogan "A step towards clean India". It clearly conveys to contribute every single bit towards building a nation where every citizen enjoys equal privilege and healthy lifestyle.

How can we be part of the Swachh Bharat Campaign?

“A clean mind maketh a clean environment.”
Whenever we visit foreign countries we are awestruck by their clean surroundings and we too keep very much care and follow the rules. But usually returning to our motherland we don’t do that.

What is that which is stopping us? Ever pondered?
So what needs to be done on primary basis?

It’s YOUR TURN NOW: Are you carrying KINDNESS in your pocket?

“Kindness is a perennial virtue, share it and it grows more”
You help someone and in reply what you get is precious as diamond the soothing smile the compassion essayed from the eyes. Yes one kindness act and you are so welled up in your emotion quotient.

We bumped about Your Turn Now (YTN) on Anupama Dalmia facebook page Beyond the box which had the contest to narrate your kindness act.
For few days we started pondering what kindness acts we had done in recent times, few flashed but we didn’t find them worth mentioning, again we started to jot down kindness acts but again they were not reaching our benchmark.

But Rushabh Turakhia says, “no kindness act is small, but maybe we all need gentle reminders to be kind”. This thought inspired us and we were drifted towards this campaign furthermore found out some amazing facts about this initiative and about founder Rushabh Turakhia. Let me share with you all about this movement.
