Actually, nine – tenths of the danger in an illness comes from fear. Fear can give us the apparent symptoms of an illness; and it can give us the illness too,- its effects can go so far as that.
There are physical movements, effects of the pressure, which sometimes create underground fear that may do harm if the fear is not rejected. There is, for instance, a certain pressure in the head of which there has been question and which is felt by many, especially in the earlier stages, when something is still closed has to open. It is a discomfort that comes nothing and can easily be got over, if we know that it is an effect of the pressure of the forces to which we are opening when they works strongly on the body to produce a result and to hasten the transformation. Taken quietly, it can turn into a not un-pleasurable sensation. But if we get frightened, we are sure to contract a very bad headache; it may even go as far as a fever. The discomfort is due to some resistance in the nature; if we know how to release the resistance, then we are immediately free from the discomfort. But, get frightened and the discomfort may turn into something much worst.
Whatever the character of the experience we have, we must give no room to fear; we must keep an unshaken confidence and feel that whatever happens is the thing that had to happen. Once we have chosen the path, we must bold by accept all the consequences of our choice. But, if we choose and then draw back and choose again and again drawback, always waving, always doubting, always fearful, we create a disharmony in our being, which not only retards our progress, but, can be the origin of all kinds of disturbance in the mind and vital being and discomfort and disease in the body.
So, the real disease is fear, throw the fear among and the disease will go. The first thing from which we must cure once forever is Fear. It is more dangerous than the worst disease. We must understand that without fear nothing can happen.
Not to worry. More we think of it, more we concentrate upon it and above all, more we fear, more we give a chance for things to now. If, on the contrary, we turn our attention and interest elsewhere, we increase the possibility of cure. All fear must be overcome and replaced by a total confidence in the Divine grace.

ಮೂಢ ಉವಾಚ -13

ಆರು ಅರಿಗಳನು ಅರಿಯದವರಾರಿಹರು?
ದೇವಕಾಮದ ಫಲವಲ್ಲವೇ ಚರಾಚರರು||
ನಿತ್ಯಮುಕ್ತ ಪರಮಾತ್ಮನಾಧೀನ ಕಾಮವಾದರೆ|
ಕಾಮನಾಧೀನರಾಗಿಹರು ನರರು ಮೂಢ||

ಆತ್ಮನೇ ತಾನೆಂಬ ಅರಿವು ಮರೆಯಾಗಿ|
ತನು-ಮನವೆ ತಾವೆಂದುಭ್ರಮಿತರಾಗಿರಲು||
ತುಂಬಿದಜ್ಞಾನದಿಂ ಜನಿಸುವುದು ಕಾಮ|
ಕಾಮಫಲಿತಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಕರ್ಮಗೈವರೋ ಮೂಢ||

ಬೇಕು ಬೇಕೆಂಬುದಕೆ ಕೊನೆಯೆಂಬುದೆಲ್ಲಿ?
ಬಯಸಿದ್ದು ಸಿಕ್ಕಲ್ಲಿ ಮತ್ತಷ್ಟು ಬೇಕು ಮತ್ತಷ್ಟು||
ಸಿಕ್ಕಲ್ಲಿ ಮಗದಷ್ಟು ಬೇಕೆಂಬುದಕೆ ಕಾರಣವು|
ಕಾಮ ಅದಕಿಲ್ಲ ಪೂರ್ಣ ವಿರಾಮ ಮೂಢ||

ಹೊನ್ನು ಕಾರಣವಲ್ಲ ಹೆಣ್ಣು ಕಾರಣವಲ್ಲ|
ಮಣ್ಣು ಕಾರಣವಲ್ಲ ಮನಸು ಕಾರಣವಲ್ಲ||
ಬೇಕು ಬೇಕು ಬೇಕೆಂಬ ಅನಂತಾತೃಪ್ತತೆಗೆ|
ಕಾಮ ಕಾರಣವಲ್ಲದೆ ಮತ್ತೊಂದಲ್ಲ ಮೂಢ||

Rig Veda


-------------(3/12, Rigveda)

Only 'knowledge' can help us to know the universe, which is vast like an ocean. It enlightens everyone's minds.

Knowledge destroys the darkness of ignorance. There are two ways by which knowledge can be imbibed- from an able guru and self study. By attaining knowledge the mind becomes enlightened. We should try to acquire knowledge from all the sources and by all means-studying the scriptures, contemplation,meditation,etc. Scriptures are invaluable source of knowledge because it is only through their study that the mind is filled with good thoughts. Good thoughts help us in leading a virtuous life.This is the sure way for growth of the mind and also to acquire eternal happiness and peace.

ಹೃದಯದ ಭಾವದೆ ಅರ್ಥವನರಿಯದೇ

ಕಾಣದ ಪ್ರೀತಿಯ ಆಂತರ್ಯವರಿಯದೇ
ಅರಸುತಲಿದ್ದೆ  ಮನವೆಲ್ಲಾ
ಹೃದಯದ ಒಳಗೂ ಕಾಣದೇ ಹೊರಗೂ
ಹುಡುಕುತಲಿದ್ದೆ ದಿನವೆಲ್ಲಾ

ಹೃದಯದ ಭಾವದೆ ಅರ್ಥವನರಿಯದೇ
ಅಲೆಯುತಲಿದ್ದೆ ಹೊರಗೆಲ್ಲಾ
ಅರಸುವದರಿಯದೆ ಹರಸುವದರಿಯದೇ
ಬಯಸುವದರಿಯದೇ ಒಳಗೆಲ್ಲಾ

ಎಲ್ಲೋ ಹುಟ್ಟಿದೆ ಎಲ್ಲಿಯೋ ಬೆಳೆದೆ
ಅರಿಯದೆ ನನ್ನ  ಹೊರೆಯೆಲ್ಲಾ
ಅರಿವನು ಬಯಸದೆ ಕಲಿತೆನು ಕಲಿಯದೆ
ಸರಿಸದೆ ನನ್ನ ಪೊರೆಯೆಲ್ಲಾ

ಕಣ್ಣಿಗೆ ಕಾಣದ ಮನಸಿಗೂ ನಿಲುಕದ
ಅರಿವನೆ ಹರಡುತೆ ಇಲ್ಲೆಲ್ಲೂ
ಅರಿವನು ಅರಸದೆ ಕೆಸರನು  ಬೆರೆಸದೆ
ತಿಳಿವನೆ ಮೆರೆಸುತೆ ಎಲ್ಲೆಲ್ಲೂ

ಅರಿವಿನ ಪಕ್ಷಿಯ  ತೆರೆಯುತೆ ಅಕ್ಷಿಯ
ನಿರುತದೆ ಸತ್ಯವ ಅರಸುತಲೂ
ಹರಸುವ ನಮಿಸುವ ಕ್ಷಮಿಸುವ ಮನದಲು
 ಸ್ಫುರಿಸುವ ಭಾವವೇ ಬರಿಸುತಲೂ

ಕಾಣದ ಪ್ರೀತಿಯ ಆಂತರ್ಯವರಿಯುವೆ
ಅರಸುತಲಿದ್ದೂ ಮನವೆಲ್ಲಾ
ಹೃದಯದ ಹೊರಗೂ  ಒಳಗೂ ಕಾಣುವೆ
ಹುಡುಕದೇ ಇದ್ದೂ ದಿನವೆಲ್ಲಾ
