THE DOOR IS ALWAYS OPEN

Broader than space, and deeper and clearer than the ocean, the round sun in our hearts rises high to shed its light on the universe. The noble world spreads out before us: a castle of glittering gold appears, and the earth is covered with white jade. Mystically beautiful flowers bloom, and the precious birds and beasts dance in joy.

All worlds are adorned with peace and freedom. There is no suffering, and these worlds are filled with happiness. Paradise and heaven lose their sparkle, and the Buddha is left speechless by such a sight.

Both including and transcending time and space, everyone is eternal and everything is infinite and equal. Yet it is difficult to describe this mysterious world: steep cliffs flee as a red column of fire shoots up from blue waves, and the wooden roadside totems sing joyfully. What a marvelous sight! Such terms as “saints” and “devils” are insignificant in this world: Confucius and Tao-ch’il clasp hands as they bless the age of peace and prosperity.

These are not wild fantasies, but the true reality of the oneness of everything. To those of you who close your eyes only to bemoan the fact that it’s dark, please listen:

The door to the Great Light is always open. In this world overflowing with peace, there are no dualities, there are no conflicts. So let’s raise our eyes, look at this world, and praise it all together!

Long Drives – In the Hills and Snow

Last week, 2 of my friends and I planned a 3 days trip to Kasauli, Chail and Kufri. We started with Kasauli and then went to Kufri and then to Chail and then back to Chandigarh. I’m into traveling and I never get tired of it. I keep on traveling, it could be due to my work reasons or it could be my own planned trips. Here I’m sharing few glimpses with you all from my recent trip to the hills of Himachal.

kasauli-hills-himachal-1

This place is called Kasauli, a small and beautiful hill station, around 60 Km from Chandigarh. We stayed there for a night before heading ahead. The view is clicked from the Hotel’s balcony where I stayed.

From Kasauli, we headed to Kufri, there was snow all over the way, and it is always risky to drive under such circumstances. So I decided to park my car at a safe place, and then we all walked few Km up to Kufri to enjoy this scenic place and nature’s paradise.

So after walking few KMs, we reached Kufri, and the view in Kufri was amazing with snow all over  the place. It had fresh snowfall just an hour back when we reached there.

Here, it’s me with a friend 🙂

This is Chail, a peaceful, less explored and beautiful hill station, I loved this scenic view all over the way while I was driving there.

We stayed in Chail for a night and then started driving back to Home in the morning. It is always good to spend some quality time in the serenity of nature.

Have a good day all ~ Vikas Sharma

It’s Beautiful to Enjoy Solitude

Expand The Horizon

It’s better to be in solitude for a while at times than having meaningless conversations over and over with someone whom you don’t want to spend your time with. Here I’m not talking about avoiding conversation with anyone; I’m just talking about having exhausting and meaningless conversations, and about solitude.

I find it better to figure out myself, do the things I want to do, lost in my thoughts, traveling, strolling around the places alone than being with someone who is faking, irritating or with whom I find it difficult to share time over unnecessary conversations. It’s meaningless and exhausting to spend time with people you really don’t want to spend your time with, and whereas sometimes it’s beautiful and enlightening to even enjoy solitude, and of course it is easy to enjoy solitude only when it isn’t forced.

There is a different pleasure, tranquility and power in being able to…

The Scenic – Janjheli Valley

P_20160612_083342_1_p

Bulah (Janjheli Valley)

Janjehli Valley, at a distance of 80 km from Mandi (Himachal, India) is a paradise for hikers, offering treks up to a height of 3,300 metres. Last month, I got an opportunity to travel to this less explored place, the picturesque valley of Janjehli has fewer tourists as compared to other similar popular trekking and camping destination as it’s not that popular yet on tourist map.

Around 6 km from Janjehli is a place called Bulah, I loved the place and mesmerized by its beauty, I stayed there in a camp for a night. For me traveling and spending a day in Janjehli Valley has been an enchanting and fascinating experience. It is a beautiful, tranquil and calm place, the beauty of which is enhanced by its lush green serene surroundings, apple orchards, hills covered with pine and deodar trees, a river flowing through various crisscrossed hills, numerous waterfalls, and breezy and fresh environment all around the valley. The valley adorned by snow during winters, is no less than heaven on the earth. At around 10 Km from Janjheli is a Shikari Devi Temple at a height of 3,332 metres above sea level. From the temple area, it offers a mesmerizing scenic and sunset view which is just soul stirring, the sunset view from here is like one of the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see.

Some more snapshots from my travel to this place:

Random Thought

The most beautiful souls are those who has been hurt but refuse to be broken, the souls who has been cracked but refuse to stay broken and instead put themselves together to stand up more stronger, the souls who has been wrongly judged but never let others any wrong opinion about them to affect themselves.

Much love ~ Vikas Sharma
