New Technology and its Manageability

February 25, 2009

New Technology and its Manageability

However great the new technology is, it requires a manageability solution along with it. “Manageability” is the overall ease of the technology starting at its commissioning until its decommission.

Even with great manageability features, the Oracle RAC took some time to move into mainstream production. [Ref. Gartner Report on Oracle RAC claims it took nearly eight years]

In that case, what is the importance of “Manageability” of a “Enterprise Manageability Solution”???

మహాశివరాత్రి

February 23, 2009

శంకరం శంకరాచార్యం కేశవం బాదరాయణమ్
సూత్ర భాష్య కృతౌ వందే భగవంతో పునః పునః

ఎవని సద్రూపమైన ప్రకాశమే అసద్రూపాలైన అర్థాలుగా కన్పించుచున్నదో,
తత్త్వమసి అనే వేద వాక్యంచే ఎవడు భక్తులకు ప్రత్యక్షంగా తెలుపుచున్నాడో,
ఎవనిని సాక్షాత్కరించుకుంటే సంసారసాగరాన పునర్భవముండదో,
ఆ గురుమూర్తియైన దక్షిణాముర్తికి ప్రణమిల్లుచున్నాను.

ఆపద – సంపద

February 12, 2009

आपदः सम्पदः काले दैवादेवेती निश्चयी |
तृप्तः स्वस्थेन्द्रियो नित्यं न वाञ्छति न शोचति ||

ఆపదః, సంపదః, కాలే, దైవాత్, ఎవ, ఇతి, నిశ్చయీ
తృప్తః, స్వస్థేంద్రియః, నిత్యం, న, వాఞ్చతి, న, శోచతి

ఆపదలు సంపదలు కాలంలో దైవం వలన (మన పూర్వ కర్మ ఫలితాల వలన) మాత్రమే అని నిశ్చయించుకున్న వాడు నిత్యం త్రుప్తుడై, ఇంద్రియాలను నిగ్రహించి ఏమీ కోరడు, దుఃఖించడు.

(Astavakra Samhita – Chapter XI – Verse 3)

Final Post – Who am I?

This is the last Post on to this blog – There is nothing left to SAY!!

“Ekam Sat”; “Vipra Bahudaa Vadanti” |

Truth is ONE; The Wise men say it differently.

I am THAT TRUTH. I am THAT TRUTH. I am THAT TRUTH.
That TRUTH comes into DIRECT EXPERIENCE for a sincere SEEKER of TRUTH.

There is very little (or nothing worthy) one achieves until he/she reaches the lotus feet of GURU (=SELF =GOD)

There is nothing left to achieve ONCE the SEEKER completes the SURRENDER at the lotus feet of the GURU. (The realized sage). This surrender happens ONCE & only ONCE. All the mis-identification merges into its source and vanishes completely without a TRACE.

THE TRUTH is immutable, eternal, infinite, existence, consciousness, bliss.
There is NOTHING beyond, behind, in front of, prior to, posterior to, above, below, greater than, smaller than, similar to, different from, before, after THAT TRUTH.

GOD is THAT TRUTH;
GURU is THAT TRUTH;
I AM THAT TRUTH;

OM TAT SAT.
OM TAT SAT.
OM TAT SAT.

What is Vedanta?

February 5, 2009

Shruti is neither Dwaita nor Adwaita.
Its interpretation is either dwaita or advaita… or whatever one likes it to be.

First step of vedanta is called Samanvaya : During this step one need to study the entire shruti and smriti with the help of a realized Guru and get to the correct understanding of sabda pramana – which is the highest single source of absolute knowledge.

Second step of vedanta is called Avirodha – non-contradiction. During this stage the seeker should iron out all the apparent conflict with the other valid sources of the knowledge. Vedanta accepts direct perception and reasoning (pratyaksha and anumana) as the other two valid sources of knowledge

Third Step is Saadhana the practice: During this stage, one should carry on the practice of vedanta with nidhidhyasana (also called Mouna) – severe contemplation with one-pointed mind from the above two steps – they can also be named as “Shravana” and “Manana”. (hearing and understanding)

The fourth stage is called Phala: The attainment of ever existing Fruit as it were. This stage a vedanti is called jeevan mukta.

So, don’t worry about a single verses of Upanishads and their respective interpretations. Just follow the path shown by your GURU with utmost FAITH (Sraddha) and everyone is equally capable of treading the path and reach the GOAL

(the goal is most near to you…. nearer than what ego can think about nearness)
