సత్యం "ఏవ" జయతే!

September 2, 2009

सत्यमेव जयते नानृतम्
सत्येन पन्था विततो देवयानः ।
येनाक्रमत् ऋष्यो ह्याप्तकामो
यत्र तत् सत्यस्य परं निधानं ॥

satyameva jayate nānṛtaṁ
satyena panthā vitato devayānaḥ |
yenā kramantyṛṣayo hyāptakāmā
yatra tat satyasya paramaṁ nidhānam ||

సత్యం ఏవ జయతే న అనృతం
సత్యేన పంథా వితతో దేవ యానః |
ఏన ఆక్రమత్ ఋష్యోః ఆప్తకామా
యత్ర తత్ సత్యస్య పరమం నిధానం ||

Truth alone prevails, not falsehood. By truth the path is laid out, the Way of the Gods, on which the seers, whose every desire is ever-fulfilled, proceed to the Highest Abode of the Truth.

Oracle Database 11g R2 released

September 2, 2009

Oracle has released the latest version of the worlds largest used database!

Key new features are:
“Shared Grid” with server pools for consolidating multiple applications into a single RAC cluster
“RAC One Node” for consolidating less critical application systems transparently get the benefits of easy movement etc.,
“ASM Cluster File System (ACFS)” in the storage management
“Instance Caging” for confining the database to specific cores in a SMP environments
“In-Memory Database Cache (IMDB Cache)” for moving the OLTP processing to the middle tier
capabilities to use the Disaster Recovery (Idle) infrastructure for Reposting and Backup operations.

It has several security enhancements as well.
This Oracle White paper has more details.

It is nice to hear about the new features from Tom Kyte. Being with oracle I had the opportunity to hear about the features directly from the “Architect” of those features!

Final Post – The plain truth

September 1, 2009

Having explained about three dimensions, there gunas, three pairs of planes that make the unit cube, three axis, a universal center at (0,0,0) and iswara at (0,0,1) the apta-kaama (ever fulfilled desire of iswara and ever perfected knowledge of prakriti) the secret of triple division of space and time, the secret of duality of rAga and dvesha; the origin of EGO in the impossibility of double negation of NOT NOT, the dependent view of a microcosm (lOka) and its respective time units of measure in the past 32 posts; this is the last post on this blog to explain the ultimate truth in the simplest possible terms as a summary.

1. The unit measure of “Day” is due to a revolution of “I” around its EGO (identity – in this example it is EARTH).

2. The unit measure of “YEAR” is due to a revolution of “I” around its TRUE SELF. (in this example it is SUN)

3. The unit measure of “MONTH” in its appearance of birth, growth, formation, transformation, decay and death is only an “appearance” due to the “attachment” to MOON (the mind) by the body (the GROSS identification on EARTH) This attachment creates a virtual relationship between the “I” and “Mine” causing the delusion of all the six transformations. Due to this delusion (mOha) “I” and “MINE” will get into a mutual dependency and starts engaging in the preserving / protecting / propagating the FORM and NAME within their view (lOka). This generates “ACTION” based on “DESIRE” (kAma) and a bondage to the lOka. There is really NO END for these turning of the MONTHS i.e., birth and death cycles as long as the bondage (mOha) is not removed. (along with its close friends krodha, lobha, mada and matsarya)

The mOha results in the thought that “I” am the doer and basis for ‘my’ mind. (Earth thinking that Earth carries the MOON ignoring its own basis SUN) This is called AHAMKAARA (EGO in English!)

The same mOha makes “MIND” feel that it is self-effulgent. Mind thinks it is giving “light” to the BODY and senses and it is being supported by the body and senses (EARTH) The EGO identification only “sees” when MOON is there (this is called waking up state and dreaming state) It is fast asleep when the SUN is shining (it is called sushupti – or deep sleep state of the bonded being)

When mind realizes it is ultimately dependent on the self-effulgent light source (SUN) and body and senses realize that they are also ultimately based on the true self (SUN) they come out of mOha and get released from the bondage for ever completing the “YEAR”

NOTHING originates in NOTHING; TRANSFORMS and appear in NOTHING; MERGE back into NOTHING;
EVERYTHING exists as EVERYTHING always!

but, the EGO (a derived something out of NOTHING due to Ignorance) has to work hard in making and breaking the mOha – the delusion!

Note 1:
This whole blog is only an attempt of verbalization of very “subtle and ultimate truth” that is beyond the realm of words and mind. It flows out of an EGO’s (identified as Prasad Chitta) tasting a quarter droplet of nectar that flows out of the lotus feet of his GURU who is an infinite ocean of compassion; who is ever established in the ULTIMATE TRUTH.

Note 2:
Readers please note
a. if any of the concepts and ideas are “acceptable and useful” to them those ideas/concepts are the grace of hierarchy of GURUS (guru parampara that ends in the ultimate truth or BRAHMAN)
b. if any of the concepts and ideas that are “incorrect” in the view, those ideas/concepts are due to the SOLE ignorance of this EGO (Prasad Chitta) which is NOTHING anyway!

Note 3:
The best way to ‘use’ this blog is to read from the oldest post first using the blog archive on the top of this page. Read and Internalize the concept/idea as explained and go to the next post to finally reach this 33rd post.

Note 4:
This blog has a fulfilled purpose of teaching NOTHING about NOTHING, EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING and SOMETHING about SOMETHING at NO COST what so ever!
All the best!
