Religion without Celebration

Without celebration religion is a mere corpse.

ਧਰਮ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਉਤਸਵ ਦਾ ਤੱਤ ਕੱਢ ਦਿਓ ਤਾਂ ਪਿੱਛੇ ਸਿਰਫ਼ ਇੱਕ ਲਾਸ਼ ਹੀ ਬਚਦੀ ਹੈ।

उत्सव रहित धर्म एक शव मात्र है l


Culture and Civilization

Culture and Civilization
Cannot, really, co-exist.
In fact, they are poles apart.

Vir, I am unfamiliar with Zoka, forgive my ignorance
(google was no help other than to point out Zoka Coffee Roasters and Tea Co. and a Bar in Pine Colorado )

Zoka is the the untamed, unpredictable, creative power of the universe; her continuum of creation, and transformation. I’ll try to find some material and share with you.

Zoka is the creative life force in nature. In haiku it is the source of kigo and the implied, unsaid energy

I always call it the creative/destructive force. Looking through the “Non-Dual” glasses death and birth are one;

‘Transforming Force’ sounds better. ( Only if that huge meteor/dwarf-planet had not hit the earth, leaving her to spin on an tilted axis! )

There’s a misconception about Hinduism; that of it being a polytheistic religion. There holy trinity of Brahma ( Creation ), Vishnu ( Sustenance ) and Shiva ( Destruction ) is just three manifestation of the same Force – OM ( Zoka ).

The Biblical/Western thought is that God created (past participle ) but Taoist/Eastern believe that “He” is creating/transforming it every second, not that once the creation was “over” He rested.

BTW Vir, Orthodox Jewish thought shares with you the belief that creation is an ongoing process, in which we are partners. Indeed it is our belief that the world is constantly being created. If the process were to stop even for an instant the world would not only cease to exist, it would in fact never have existed.

That brings us to the next thing that “Haiku is the poetry of “Now” .” as it can be deduced from your statement that

there is only one ( Indivisible ) Eternal Moment.
