“Vision without Action is a Daydream, Action without Vision is a Nightmare.” – Japanese Proverb

Note: I now realize that the above planetary vision (for an enlightened civilization made of mindfully engaged communities and social networks) which came from within following inner guidance more than seven years ago and towards which I have devoted countless hours, energy and focused attention have three parts like three refuge vows of Buddhists10/30/2007

“Virtue is knowledge”  –  Socrates (virtue and knowledge)
Avijja is dukkha – Buddha (Dhamma Knowledge by Ajaan Lee)
“Even if you are in the minority of one, Truth is still the Truth” – Gandhi

“If many little people, in many little places, do many little deeds, they can change the face of the earth!” African Proverb


Knowledge without practice is lame; practice without knowledge is blind. Life that is continually changing and unfolding in its higher expression is not obligated to conform to any human theory or institution; theory and practice by necessity must embrace, evolve and be informed by Life, Here and Now. – Susmita Barua


Bhikkhus, just as the dawn is the forerunner and first indication of the rising of the sun, so is right view the forerunner and first indication of wholesome states. For one of wholesome (samyak) view, bhikkhus, wholesome intention springs up. For one of wholesome intention, wholesome speech springs up. For one of wholesome speech, wholesome action springs up. For one of wholesome action, wholesome livelihood springs up. For one of wholesome livelihood, wholesome effort springs up. For one of wholesome effort, wholesome mindfulness springs up. For one of wholesome mindfulness, complete concentration springs up. For one of complete concentration, wholistic knowledge springs up. For one of wholistic knowledge, total deliverance springs up. –
Buddha in Anguttara Nikaya 10:121
Note the word ‘samyak’ has been incorrectly translated as ‘right’ as in the Eight-fold Path.

Kamma, oh monks I declare is intention” – Buddha


Bhikkhus, Ignorance, avijja is the forerunner of the arising of demeritorious factors; lack of moral shame, ahirika, and lack of moral dread, anottappa, are only its followers,1 . Bhikkhus, one who is ignorant and lacking in wisdom would hold Incorrect View. In one who holds Incomplete View there would arise Incorrect Thinking, one who has Unwholesome Thinking, would utter Unwholesome Speech; one who utter Incorrect Speech would take Unwholesome Action: one who takes Erroneous Action would engage in Unwholesome Livelihood; one who engages in Wrong Livelihood would make Unskillful Effort; one who makes Incomplete Effort would practise Unskillful Mindfulness: one who practises Unskillul Mindfulness would develop Unskillful Concentration.” –
Avijja Sutta, Buddha’s Discourse on Ignorance
, Mahavagga Samyutta


Note: The word ‘Wrong’ in English often has a connotation of ‘sin’ which has no place in Dhamma,
avijja is spiritual ignorance of true Nature of Reality. In the Bible, “sin” actually renders Hebrew and Greek words which literally mean “missing the mark,” i.e., behaving inadequately or unskillfully. The sinner, then, is like an unskillful archer who misses his aim (could this be the real meaning of Zen and the Art of Archery?). But this comes, very close to the idea of akusala kamma or “unskilled action” in Buddhism.).

“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.”
Dr. Martin Luther King
“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” – Carl Jung

Every religion, culture, community, party, profession, and organization must continually strive towards self-renewal – reforming and transforming itself from within than without, for its own sake and the sake of common good of all! If the leaders are failing, the members must assume that responsibility. That is perhaps the most sane and effective way to preserve the integrity, essence, and character of the entity concerned. Lack of integrity eventually leads to disintegration! – Susmita Barua

“Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.”    – Max Planck

“Knowledge is meant to set us free from all mortal fears. Everyone who yearns for and abides by knowledge with right attitude and intent is counteracting the forces of ignorance, needless suffering, error and confusion in this world! – Susmita Barua

“There is no matter as such! All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. Mind is the matrix of all matter” – Max Planck

“You cannot see anything that you do not first contemplate as a reality.” – Ramtha

“Knowledge is inner knowing carried to the leading edge through gathering of experience realized into wisdom in the outer world.”- Susmita Barua

“What we observe is not nature, but nature exposed to our method of questioning.”- Werner Heisenberg

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. Never lose a holy curiosity.” – A.Einstein

“Sometime, somewhere, you take something to be the truth. If you cling to it so much, even when the truth comes in person and knocks on your door, you will not open it.” Buddha

<><><>

“Be ye lamps unto yourselves, be a refuge to yourselves. Hold fast to Truth as a lamp; hold fast to the Truth as a refuge. Look not for a refuge in anyone beside yourselves. And those, who shall be a lamp unto themselves, shall betake themselves to no external refuge, but holding fast to the Truth as their lamp, and holding fast to the Truth as their refuge, they shall reach the topmost height.”Buddha’s last message to Ananda

“Truth is not mere data or information. Truth is the full realization of a concept or paradigm of thought into experience and personal wisdom.” – Ramtha

There must be no barriers to freedom of inquiry. There is no place for dogma in science. The scientist is free, and must be free to ask any question, to doubt any assertion, to seek for any evidence, to correct any errors.” – J. Robert Oppenheimer, Life 10-10-1949.

All scientific knowledge is provisional. Everything that science “knows,” even the most mundane facts and long-established theories, is subject to reexamination as new information comes in.” – Scientific American editorial, December 2002


“The World does not need another guru; the world does not need another preacher, the world does not need another priest; the world does not need another spiritual interpretation of the Stars; what the world needs is Truth.” – Ramtha
