Cell Phone vs. Aagnas August 8, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — jssyouth @ 7:49 pm

I wonder what would happen if we treat our Aagnas like we treat our cell phones.

What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it (mentally)?
What if we flipped through them several times a day?
What if we used it to receive messages from the text (the text being external
What if we treated it like we couldn’t live without it?
What if we used it as we traveled?
What if we used it in case of an emergency?

This is something to make you go …hmm…where are my Aagnas now? In practice? In use?

Oh, and one more thing. Unlike our cell phone, we don’t ever have to
worry about our Aagnas being disconnected, dropped, or EVEN simply forgotten!

    It is a very good comparison of cell phone vs. agnas. The way cell phone is a part of our relative life and we put an extra effort to keep phone with us, we can also do that in our real life by keeping (staying within the boundaries of) PPS Dadaji’s agnas. Sounds so simple!!! JS

    Totally agree and if we make this possible in ourselves–keeping aagnas as we do our cellphones…with great care, making sure it stays dry, and protected. Then we can become untouchable internally–same as Kanudadaji and Ambalaldadaji…and remain unaffected in all situations whether favorable or unfavorable.

    Indeed, Sejal, a very deep thought.
    JS to all! 🙂

    Sejal, this is truly an inspiring analogy. It made me think about how we remind ourselves of things to take with us when we set out to go somewhere. Cellphone dependency is our assumed need to stay in touch with relative files. You have provoked an inspirational thought to question whether we can assume similar responsibility for File#1 to stay in touch with its own Agna-Dharma.

    I have asked myself this question a lot of times in the past. Your cellphone analogy somehow reminded it to me again. So, I am taking this opportunity to share it with you all.

    It is now. Do you know where your Agna’s are?
