WHOLE PATIENCE: TO KNOW, TO UNDERSTAND THE QUALITY, THE ABILITY, OR THE FACT OF PATIENCE, I PRAY TO THE SON OF MAN KNOWN AS JESUS, A NATIVE OF NAZARETH, GALILEE.

I pray to Son of Man, a native of Nazareth, Galilee to know, and to understand the quality, the ability, or the fact of “PATIENCE.” I am using the phrase “WHOLE PATIENCE” for Jesus clearly demonstrated His other supernatural abilities. Jesus had several options if He chose not to wait, not to tolerate, not to succumb, and not to experience the horrors of pain and humiliation imposed by crucifixion.

THE GOSPEL IS OF VERY SPECIAL INTEREST TO THE ALIEN AS IT REVEALS GOD’S COSTLY PLAN FOR REDEMPTION THROUGH JESUS CHRIST.

But, it is the alien who carried the burden of the cross as Jesus slowly moved to reach His earthly destination. Jesus was spared from the burden of carrying the cross on the day of crucifixion.

The Gospel of Luke 23:26, Matthew 27:31, and Mark 15:21 is of very special interest to the alien carrying the burden of the cross. The Gospel reveals God’s costly plan for redemption through crucifixion and the plan shifts the burden of cross from Jesus to the alien. The word redemption means to release, or freedom from payment of a price and the man’s freedom or deliverance, or liberation involving the greatest possible depth of suffering. The price paying concept lies at the heart of redemption and hence it is a costly action. A ransom-price is paid by Jesus and yet the alien is not set free from the burden of the cross. “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.” (Gospel According to Saint Mark, Chapter 10, verse#45) The emphasis is on the giving of Life as a ransom. It is a completed act for Jesus who paid the ransom-price. Jesus performed this action with Whole Patience. It is immaterial as to whom Christ paid this price. For the alien, the only concern is to experience the results of this full redemption by receiving God’s grace and mercy through Christ and His Love. Jesus had gone through the whole of human experience including the worst horrors of pain and humiliation and it is unfair to leave the alien with the never ending burden.

Today, the alien is still carrying the burden of the cross while he slowly inches towards his final, earthly destination. The alien has no choice other than that of learning the art of Whole Patience. I am alien for I have not yet entered the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.

WHOLE CHRIST–WHOLE LOVE–WHOLE REDEEMER:

Endurance is the ability to stand pain, distress, and fatigue; it is the ability to resist and withstand suffering and hardship with fortitude and patience.

I am alien, foreigner, sojourner, stranger, tenant and traveler with no place to call home. The never ending burden of the Cross

THE TRIAL AND EXECUTION OF JESUS IS A LESSON TO THE ALIEN, A TEACHING TO KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THE QUALITIES OF PATIENCE AND ENDURANCE. ROMAN GOVERNOR PONTIUS PILATE THOROUGHLY SCOURGED JESUS AND ASKED PEOPLE IF HE NEEDS TO PUNISH MORE.

Endurance speaks of the ability to hold up under pain, to tolerate, to put up with, to bear pain without flinching. It is the Will, ability, quality, or fact of waiting without complaint. It demands steadiness, perseverance, self-control, resoluteness in the face of grave provocation. This ability to bear suffering results from firm sustained courage and it is a mistake to interpret endurance as cowardice. Jesus remained calm and unperturbed while people angrily shouted demanding his crucifixion.

The alien walking behind Jesus carrying the cross knows the Son of Man as a picture of stoicism displaying grit, and courage that refuses to succumb under any circumstances, a courage that involves utmost indifference to personal pain and suffering.

I am alien, foreigner, sojourner, stranger, tenant and traveler with no place to call home. The never ending burden of the Cross.

“THEN SOME BEGAN TO SPIT AT  HIM,  THEY  BLINDFOLDED  HIM,  STUCK  HIM  WITH  THEIR  FISTS,  AND  SAID, ‘PROPHESY!’ AND THE GUARDS TOOK  HIM  AND  BEAT  HIM .” GOSPEL OF   MARK, CHAPTER 14, VERSE#65.

TO WHICH LAND AND TO WHICH KINGDOM DOES THE ALIEN CARRYING THE CROSS TRULY BELONGS? WHO WILL SHARE THE PROPHESY?

I am alien, foreigner, sojourner, stranger, tenant and traveler with no place to call home. The never ending burden of the Cross.

THE SON OF MAN IS CRUCIFIED AND IT ONLY SPEAKS ABOUT HIS WILL TO REFRAIN FROM RETALIATION, AND FORBEARANCE. PEOPLE TAUNTED JESUS TO SAVE  HIS  OWN  LIFE  AND TO  COME  DOWN. THE ALIEN WITH THE NEVER ENDING BURDEN OF CROSS CHOOSES FORTITUDE EVEN IF IT IS TO BE  MISTAKEN  OR  MISINTERPRETED   AS WEAKNESS. 

I am alien, foreigner, sojourner, stranger, tenant and traveler with no place to call home. The never ending burden of the Cross.

THE ROMAN GOVERNOR PONTIUS PILATE OR HIS SOLDIERS POSTED A WRITTEN NOTICE ABOVE THE CROSS ON WHICH JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED. THE NEVER ENDING BURDEN OF THE CROSS CARRIED BY THE ALIEN BEARS NO SUPERSCRIPTION.

Before marching to the place of crucifixion, Jesus was repeatedly taunted, mocked, and ridiculed by people, by criminals, by officials, by soldiers, by the high priest, King Herod, and Roman Governor Pontius Pilate. The ultimate act of indignity was that of calling Him, “THE KING OF THE JEWS” showing utter contempt for His failure to save His own life and get away from the Cross on which He was nailed. The alien without getting nailed is still carrying the burden of the cross enduring the ridicule, taunts, mockery, indignity, and utter contempt.

I am alien, foreigner, sojourner, stranger, tenant and traveler with no place to call home. The never ending burden of the Cross

JESUS DID NOT EXPRESS ANY THOUGHTS OR FEELINGS OF SELF-PITY AFTER GETTING NAILED TO THE CROSS. JESUS SAID, “FATHER, FORGIVE THEM, FOR THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING.”(THE GOSPEL OF ST LUKE, CHAPTER 23, VERSE#34). THE NEVER ENDING BURDEN OF CARRYING THE CROSS IS NOT YET FORGIVEN.

Jesus did not rebuke the people who offended and punished Him. Jesus did not express any desire to retaliate against them and did not express any thoughts or feelings of Self-Pity. Jesus after His crucifixion said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”( The Gospel According to Saint Luke, Chapter 23, verse#34)

ECCE HOMO – “BEHOLD THE MAN”

  • There is no easy cure, and there is no easy remedy to the never ending burden of walking with the cross.The alien’s problem is that of alienation or estrangement from his own true or real nature that God implanted in the man while making the man in His own image. The man lives as an ‘alien’ for the man has lost his relationship with his own LORD God Creator. The divine nature of the Son of Man becomes self-evident when the alien learns the Art of Patience and Endurance. I ask my readers to ‘Behold The Man’ and see His Patience, Fortitude, Forbearance, Perseverance, Calmness, Steadiness, Strength, Self-Control, and His resolute Endurance.

    On Friday, June 4, 2021, the 32nd Anniversary of Tiananmen Square Massacre, The Living Tibetan Spirits revisit the past; the spread of Communism to mainland China in 1949.

    The Living Tibetan Spirits revisit the past on the 32nd Anniversary of Tiananmen Square Massacre

    Today, on Friday, June 04, 2021 The Living Tibetan Spirits regret Tibet’s decision to pursue the policy of Isolationism while confronting the grave threat posed by Communist takeover of mainland China. In 1943, Tibet had the opportunity to establish formal diplomatic relationships with the United States and other countries of Free World to prevent the spread of Communism to Asia.

    Tibet’s unwillingness to openly resist Communism in 1943 is a crucial factor contributing to the loss of human rights in mainland China.

    CALLS FOR CHINA TO FACE GHOSTS OF ITS PAST ON TIANANMEN ANNIVERSARY

    Clipped from: https://www.voanews.com/a/calls-for-china-to-face-ghosts-of-its-past-on-tiananmen-anniversary/4423377.html

    FILE – A Chinese man stands alone to block a line of tanks heading east on Beijing’s Cangan Boulevard in Tiananmen Square, June 5, 1989.

    BEIJING —

    The United States has added its voice to international calls for China’s communist-led government to give a full public accounting of those who were killed, detained or went missing during the violent suppression of peaceful demonstrations in and around Tiananmen Square on June 4, 1989.

    In a bold statement from Washington to mark the 29th anniversary of a bloody crackdown that left hundreds — some say thousands — dead, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called on Chinese authorities to release “those who have been jailed for striving to keep the memory of Tiananmen Square alive; and to end the continued harassment of demonstration participants and their families.”

    University students place flowers on the “Pillar of Shame” statue, a memorial for those injured and killed in the Tiananmen crackdown, at the University of Hong Kong, June 4, 2018.

    To this day, open discussion of the topic remains forbidden in China and the families of those who lost loved ones continue to face oppression. Chinese authorities have labeled the protests a counter-revolutionary rebellion and repeatedly argued that a clear conclusion of the events was reached long ago.

    In an annual statement on the tragedy, the group Tiananmen Mothers urged President Xi Jinping in an open letter to “re-evaluate the June 4th massacre” and called for an end to their harassment.

    “Each year when we would commemorate our loved ones, we are all monitored, put under surveillance, or forced to travel” to places outside of China’s capital, the letter said. The advocacy group Human Rights in China released the open letter from the Tiananmen Mothers ahead of the anniversary.

    “No one from the successive governments over the past 29 years has ever asked after us, and not one word of apology has been spoken from anyone, as if the massacre that shocked the world never happened,” the letter said.

    In his statement, Pompeo also said that on the anniversary “we remember the tragic loss of innocent lives,” adding that as Liu Xiaobo wrote in his 2010 Nobel Peace Prize speech, “the ghosts of June 4th have not yet been laid to rest.”

    FILE – Liu Xia, wife of deceased Chinese Nobel Peace Prize-winning dissident Liu Xiaobo and other relatives attend his sea burial off the coast of Dalian, China, in this photo released by Shenyang Municipal Information Office July 15, 2017.

    Liu was unable to receive his Nobel prize in person in 2010 and died in custody last year. The dissident writer played an influential role in the Tiananmen protests and was serving an 11-year sentence for inciting subversion of state power when he passed.

    At a regular press briefing on Monday, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said China had lodged “stern representations” with the United States over the statement on Tiananmen.

    “The United States year in, year out issues statements making ‘gratuitous criticism’ of China and interfering in China’s internal affairs,” Hua said. “The U.S. Secretary of State has absolutely no qualifications to demand the Chinese government do anything,” she added.

    In a statement on Twitter, which is blocked in China like many websites, Hu Xijin, the editor of the party-backed Global Times, called the statement a “meaningless stunt.”

    In another post he said: “what wasn’t achieved through a movement that year will be even more impossible to be realized by holding whiny commemorations today.”

    Commemorations for Tiananmen are being held across the globe to mark the anniversary and tens of thousands are expected to gather in Hong Kong, the only place in China such large-scale public rallies to mark the incident can be held.

    Exiled Tiananmen student protest leader Wu’Er Kaixi welcomed the statement from Pompeo.

    However, he added that over the past 29 years western democracies appeasement of China has nurtured the regime into an imminent threat to freedom and democracy.

    “The world bears a responsibility to urge China, to press on the Chinese regime to admit their wrongdoing, to restore the facts and then to console the dead,” he said. “And ultimately to answer the demands of the protesters 29 years ago and put China on the right track to freedom and democracy.”

    Wu’er Kaixi fled China after the crackdown and now resides in Taiwan where he is the founder of Friends of Liu Xiaobo. The group recently joined hands with several other non-profit organizations and plans to unveil a sculpture in July — on the anniversary of his death — to commemorate the late Nobel laureate. The sculpture will be located near Taiwan’s iconic Taipei 101 skyscraper.

    In Taiwan, the self-ruled democracy that China claims is a part of its territory, political leaders from both sides of the isle have also urged China’s communist leaders to face the past.

    On Facebook, Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen noted that it was only by facing up to its history that Taiwan has been able to move beyond the tragedies of the past.

    “If authorities in Beijing can face up to the June 4th incident and acknowledge that at its roots it was a state atrocity, the unfortunate history of June 4th could become a cornerstone for China to move toward freedom and democracy,” Tsai said.

    Tsai’s predecessor, Ma Ying-jeou, a member of the opposition Nationalist Party or KMT, who saw close ties with China while in office, also urged Beijing to face up to history and help heal families’ wounds.

    “Only by doing this can the Chinese communists bridge the psychological gap between the people on both sides of the [Taiwan] Strait and be seen by the world as a real great power,” Ma said.

    Memorial Day 2021. I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments

    Memorial Day 2021. I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments

    The tradition of Memorial Day holiday was instituted in 1868 as ‘Decoration Day’ to honor the Civil War dead. The last Monday in May is observed as a legal holiday in memory of the dead servicemen of all wars for they gave their precious lives to let the countrymen enjoy all their freedoms.

    I am posting this article to make an open appeal to all the members of the US Congress to pass a decree or law to commence a new tradition in the national life that celebrates the central role of love in developing wholesome human relationships.

THIS IS AN OPEN APPEAL TO ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE US CONGRESS TO PASS A DECREE OR LAW TO BEGIN A NEW TRADITION IN THE NATIONAL LIFE THAT CELEBRATES THE CENTRAL ROLE OF LOVE IN DEVELOPING WHOLESOME HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS.

    I am using the term ‘Whole Body’ to describe the perfect unity of body, mind, heart, soul, and God that establishes man as a Whole Being. Love is central to the man’s relationship to God and the man’s relations with other persons. The term love includes the feelings or the emotion of love expressed by a person (“The Subject”) and it involves a personal experience evoked when another person (“The Object”) reflects the feelings of love. Love has to be known as “The Medium” that generates the attachment or devotion to another person; and this attachment implies connection by ties of affection, sexual attraction, devotion, friendship, goodwill, compassion, respect, trust, and commitment. This kind of care and concern for a person, or persons in a relationship could be called ‘Whole Love’ if whatever is done for Love occurs beyond good and evil.

    Shavuot is a Jewish celebration that gives thanks for the Torah . Jews believe that the Torah is given to them to act as a guide for their lives. Shavuot remembers the time that God spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai and gave him the Ten Commandments and other laws. In 2021Shavuot began at sunset on Sunday, May 16 and ended at sundown on Tuesday, May 18.

    CELEBRATION OF LOVE AS A HOLIDAY TRADITION: IN JEWISH TRADITION, THE DAY OF PROCLAMATION OF TORAH TO THE JEWS AT MOUNT SINAI IN EGYPT IS CELEBRATED AS SHAVUOT, THE HARVEST HOLIDAY, THE FEAST OF WEEKS, THE HOLIDAY OF THE FIRST FRUITS. AMONG CHRISTIANS THERE IS NO COMPARABLE HOLIDAY TRADITION TO CELEBRATE THE PROCLAMATION OF THE TWO GREAT COMMANDMENTS BY JESUS CHRIST.
    Memorial Day 2021. I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments. IN THE JEWISH TRADITION, THE DAY OF PROCLAMATION OF THE TORAH TO THE JEWS AT MOUNT SINAI IN EGYPT IS CELEBRATED AS SHAVUOT, THE HARVEST HOLIDAY, THE FEAST OF WEEKS, THE HOLIDAY OF THE FIRST FRUITS. AMONG CHRISTIANS OF NUMEROUS DENOMINATIONS THERE IS NO COMPARABLE HOLIDAY TRADITION TO CELEBRATE THE PROCLAMATION OF THE TWO GREAT ‘LOVE’ COMMANDMENTS OF JESUS CHRIST WHICH IS THE BASIS FOR CHRISTIAN FAITH BOTH IN TERMS OF RELATIONS WITH GOD AND OTHER MEN.

    The word “LOVE” does not appear in the TORAH ( Law) given to the Jews at Mount Sinai. I conducted a study of the holiday traditions of the US and I am totally surprised to note that there is no traditional celebration of the Proclamation of the two Great Love Commandments of Jesus. Jewish Holiday “SHAVUOT” celebrates the giving of the ‘TORAH’ (the LAW or Instruction) to the Jews. God gave the Ten Commandments ( The Decalogue, The Code of The Ten Words)on the sixth night of the Hebrew month of ‘Sivan’. Shavuot always falls 50 days (PENTECOST) after the second night of Passover. The 49 days between Passover and Shavuot are known as ‘Omer’. While retaining the essence of The Code of The Ten Words Jesus changed the Operating Principle of the TORAH or The Law. Jesus instructs that the Law must be followed by His believers not through the use of force or authority but by simply embracing the equally powerful influence called “LOVE.”

    The concept of Holiday begins with the story of creation as revealed in the Book of Genesis and it involves the observance of a ‘Holy Day’. “And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it He rested from all the work of creating that He had done (Genesis, Chapter 2, verse#3).”

    WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: THE OLD TESTAMENT BOOK OF EXODUS, CHAPTER 20, VERSE#8 IS THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT THAT ASKS, "REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY BY KEEPING IT HOLY."

    Holiday is a day of freedom from labor sanctioned by God, and it is set aside for leisure and recreation to renew man’s relationship with his Creator. In Civil Society, certain days are set aside by Law or Custom and Traditions for the suspension of official business activities and very often in commemoration of some important events in national life. I am using the term ‘Whole Holiday’ to recognize a specific day that is set aside by Human Law in recognition of the Divine Law that is conducive to the development of harmonious, or wholesome interpersonal relationships that are essential to promote the health, and well-being of all people. In the US, there are several holidays that are legal and none of them directly address the central issue of developing Love relationships.

    Saint Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14 and it has become a popular tradition to choose or to greet a sweetheart. But this concept of romantic interest in a person is more often related to a sexual attraction and the other attributes of ‘Whole Love’ such as trust, respect, and commitment may not be always present. Secondly, the tradition of Valentine’s Day is not related to the concept of God is Love and God Loves man.

    Memorial Day 2021. I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments: CHRISTMAS DAY, A HOLIDAY ON DECEMBER 25, CELEBRATES THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST. THE FOCUS UPON GOD’S UNCONDITIONED LOVE IS NOT ALWAYS EXPRESSED IN THIS TRADITIONAL HOLIDAY CELEBRATION.

    Christmas Day Holiday celebration should reflect the very essence of Christianity.  The Gospel according to Apostle John, Chapter 3, verse# 16 declares: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” The Christmas tradition is about the Joy that is associated with the birth of baby Jesus and the exchange of gifts to express the sense of happiness. Christmas holiday is not in remembrance of God’s Law. Jesus Christ has established ‘LOVE’ as the God’s Greatest Commandment. The Gospel according to Apostle Matthew (Chapter 22, verses#37-40), and The Gospel according to Apostle Mark (Chapter 12, verses# 28-31) describe the Commandments of Love: “Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. This is the first great commandment. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two Commandments.” The Gospel according to Apostle John, Chapter 13, verse# 34 describes the need for neighborly relations among people based upon Love: “A new command I give you: Love one another, as I have loved you, so you must love one another.”

    WHOLE LOVE-WHOLE TRADITION-WHOLE LAW-WHOLE HOLIDAY:

    Memorial Day 2021. I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments. I AM ASKING ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE US CONGRESS TO INSTITUTE A NEW LAW IN RECOGNITION OF THE WHOLE LAW OF WHOLE LOVE. THE LAST WEDNESDAY OF JULY SHOULD BE A LEGAL HOLIDAY TO CELEBRATE THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS IN JULY.

    In the United States, we have no Law, or a cultural tradition to commemorate the event in which Jesus Christ has issued the two great commandments asking people to observe the Law of ‘Whole Love’ which demands, 1. The Love of God with Whole Body, Heart, Mind, and Soul, and 2. The Love of Neighbor as a requirement of God’s Law for man. After my ‘Whole Discovery’, the discovery of the experience of ‘Whole Love’ at Whole Foods Market, Ann Arbor, Michigan on Wednesday, July 30, 2014, I have decided to promote the establishment of a ‘Whole Tradition’ to follow the Spirit of the ‘Whole Law’ to truly observe the Commandment of ‘Whole Love’. To commemorate my ‘Whole Discovery’, I am writing this appeal to ask all the members of the US Congress to approve a new Law to observe the last Wednesday of July as the ‘Whole Love Holiday’. The choice of Wednesday is very appropriate as most other legal holidays are observed on Mondays as a matter of convenience and not for the purposes of obedience to a Divine Law which should be the source and inspiration for the Human Law. The concept of ‘Whole Love’ represents the ‘Whole Law’ that is explicitly pronounced by Jesus Christ as the only Commandment that the man must follow and observe in his lifetime. To acknowledge the ‘Whole Law’, to celebrate its pronouncement, we need a new ‘Whole Tradition’ by instituting a new ‘Whole Holiday’.

    My musings on Buddha Purnima 2021. I am a refugee and who is my refuge?

    My Musings on Buddha Purnima. I am a Refugee. Who is my Refuge?

    Buddha Purnima, also known as Buddha Jayanti, is an auspicious day that marks the birth anniversary of Gautam Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. It is believed that this was also the day he attained enlightenment. Buddha Purnima falls on a full moon night, usually between April and May. This year it will be observed on Wednesday, May 26.

    What is the difference between refuge and refugee?

    As nouns the difference between refuge and refugee. is that refuge being a state of safety, protection or shelter while refugee is a person seeking refuge in a foreign country out of fear of political persecution or the prospect of such persecution in his home country, i.e., a person seeking a political asylum.

    On May 24, 1956, I was in Mylapore, Madras, Chennai, India. I went to the Indian Posts & Telegraphs Office on Kutchery Street to buy the First Day Cover issued in celebration of 2500th Buddha Jayanti.

    My Musings on Buddha Purnima. I am a Refugee. Who is my Refuge?

    On that Day, I was not aware that I would fail to see the brightness of the Full Moon on Wednesday, May 26, 2021. I see Darkness. I see Gloom. I learned the art of controlling my mind. I learned the art of self-discipline. Yet, I see the inevitability of doom, disaster, calamity, cataclysm, catastrophe, and apocalypse.

    In my analysis, I am a person in need of Refuge, Shelter, or Protection. I performed my Life Journey under Shadow, the Darkness of Secrecy seeking a false sense of Security. I need to break the Shackles of Secrecy to declare that I am a Refugee. Who is my Refuge? To Whom, I should address my Petition?

    Buddha Purnima : Significance of Buddha’s Teachings

    Buddha Purnima or Buddha Jayanti is celebrated with great enthusiasm among the Buddhist community as it is one of their most important and sacred festivals. The festival also known as Vesak as it is observed on a full moon in the month Vaisakha, marks the birth of Buddha, the day of his enlightenment as well as the day he entered nirvana and left his human body form.

    This year, Buddha Purnima falls on 26th May 2021 which is a Wednesday.

    However, it should be noted that different Buddhist communities may celebrate Buddha Purnima on different dates provided there are two full moons in the month of May.

    The significance of this day can be understood by the events it upholds. Legend has it that Buddha’s wife Yashodhara, his first disciple Ananda and the Bodhi tree, the holy place under which Buddha attained enlightenment were all born or created on this very day. It is also believed that on this day Gautam Buddha chose to preach his first sermon in Varanasi or Banaras in India.

    By the evidence found in history, Gautam Buddha was born between sixth and fourth century BCE.

    Buddha was a firm believer of Karuna (meaning compassion) and Ahimsa (meaning non-violence). He spent his life searching for peace and truth. He believed that the material pleasures held little significance in life, and dedicated his life to spirituality and religion.

    Since Buddha was born in a Hindu family, the festival holds a lot of significance for the Hindu community. In Hinduism, Lord Buddha is believed to be the ninth avatar of Lord Vishnu. Therefore, Buddha Purnima is an auspicious day for devotees of Lord Vishnu and is observed with full fervor in India.

    Buddha Purnima has a lot of astrological significance as well. Buddha was born with Cancer Ascendant and Moon in Libra, and with the Sun positioned in the mighty Mars. In His Horoscope, the Moon is also aspected by five planets-Sun, Jupiter, Venus, Mars, and Saturn, and these made Him mentally strong.

    In Buddhism, it is believed that for you to be able to enjoy good health, bring happiness to your family, and enjoy peace in life, you must first master control over your mind. In Hinduism, devotees of Lord Ganesh practice a similar belief; that by gaining control over one’s mind, one can find the way to enlightenment. Astrologers believe that to gain control of your mind, you should strengthen the Moon in your horoscope.

    How to Celebrate Buddha Purnima

    If you want to achieve mental peace and bliss this Vesak, you should follow Buddha’s “Eightfold path”. It is the only true way to celebrate the festival.

    According to Buddha, the Eightfold path included-

    Having the Right View or Understanding, by knowing the truth,

    Having the Right Intention, by freeing your mind of bad thoughts,

    Having the Right Speech, which does not hurt others,

    Having the Right Action, by working for the good of others,

    Having the Right Livelihood, by maintaining an ethical standard in life,

    Having the Right Effort, by resisting evil,

    Having the Right Mindfulness, by practicing meditation,

    Having the Right Concentration, by controlling your thoughts.

    It is believed that by following this path, you can be free from your sufferings, bring harmony and peace, and even bring in more positivity and optimism in your life.

    For those who may be suffering from malefic effects of Planet Saturn

    , following the Eightfold Path can help you release mental pressure and also boost confidence in your life.

    Devotees celebrate the festival by serving others and feeding the hungry while they themselves keep a fast and do charitable work.

    Lanterns are also a special part of the celebrations. Mostly seen in Sri Lanka and South Korea, people light colorful electric lanterns, which signifies happiness and enlightenment. Happiness is believed to be the result of the individual becoming more mindful in their life.

    The doctrine of One and Only One God or Monotheism is not compatible with the idea of Secularism

    The doctrine of One and Only One God or Monotheism is not compatible with the idea of Secularism.

    The Doctrine of One and Only One God or the Doctrine of Monotheism is not consistent with the Doctrine of Secularism:
    The discussion must address the core issue that relates to the compatibility of religious doctrine and the political doctrine. If a country like Pakistan chooses Islam as its national identity, it cannot be secular at the same time. The problem is not due to the political philosophy or doctrine  of Pakistan. The problem simply relates to the religious doctrine called Islam. So, we have to examine the religious doctrine called Islam which is just a variation of the religious doctrine of Jews, Christians, and Sikhs who proclaim belief in One and Only One God. Such religious beliefs are always inconsistent with the concept of Secularism.
    The central concept of Monotheism, the concept of One and Only One God is as much flawed as the Heliocentric theory proposed by Copernicus. I ask people to understand the concept of LORD God Creator taking into account the creative abilities of God. It is apparent that God has chosen to be simultaneously different without any concern to manifest His singularity. Each created object, either the celestial object or the living thing always exists as an Individual thing with its own Individuality without any choice of its own. There are no duplicates in this created world and the universe. Each planet displays its own unique, original, one of its own kind of rotational spin while the planets may orbit or revolve around the Sun. The motions of the Sun around the Milky Way Galactic Center are of no consequence to the living experience of the man on the surface of Earth. The life span of the man, his life journey is measured by the apparent Sunrise and Sunset while the Sun moves across the arched dome that the man describes as Sky or Heaven. Even with the help of the latest reproductive technologies such as cloning, the living things including the bacteria can only exist as Individuals with Individuality. This Individualism exists and is preconditioned by the Individual’s connection to an external source of energy without concern for the fate of the social group to which the Individual may belong. I am not surprised to read about the Resurrection of Christ while the Jews and Christians still lead their own mortal existence without any choice of their own. Jesus, the Son of Man retained His Individuality after His Resurrection. Even with the Second Coming of the Christ, the man would still exist as an Individual with Individuality and each resurrected Individual may have to discover his/her own connection to the Creator God making it impossible to recognize God as a fact of shared experience. The cognitive abilities of the man are not designed to let the men share their individualistic experiences. The experience of Moses on Mount Sinai was not a collective experience of the Jews. The individualistic experience of Moses was never replicated. I can read about it but cannot experience it. There are no two daughter cells that are alike.
    In my analysis, the Hindu concept of God is consistent and is compatible with the political doctrine of Secularism. The Monotheist does not admit the possibility of God being simultaneously different. The Monotheist does not agree that my individualistic experience of God could be different from his belief in One and Only One God. The First Amendment to the US Constitution tries to address the threat posed by the doctrine of Monotheism.

    The concept of One and Only One God or Monotheism is not consistent with the idea of Secularism.

    The Concept of Monotheism: “ONE AND ONLY ONE GOD” 

    The concept of Monotheism is fundamentally flawed. I understand that this concept originated in India and spread to other nations. Apart from members of ‘Arya Samaj’, Sikhs, and other followers of Vedic rituals, it gained more attention among the followers of Prophet Muhammad. 

    Firstly, the LORD God Creator has not given to the man the ability to directly experience God’s existence. The human mental experiences of all kinds are conditioned by Fundamental Forces such as the Gravitation. Man has the ability to subjectively and objectively experience his own living condition and not that of God. The speculative nature of the Theory of Monotheism becomes apparent when we verify the Theory by finding its correspondence to an external reality. You may search the entire physical world, you will not find the One and Only One God of your imagination. That God is an idea, a mere mental percept without any correspondence with an external Object. You cannot find One and Only One God in the ‘Transcendent’ Realm for the man is conditioned. Man cannot cross the boundaries of the Physical or Immanent Realm. In fact, the One and Only One God of Jews, Christians, Muslims, Vedic Hindus, and Sikhs are not the same. However, I want to make it clear that I admire the Bhagats and their traditions of Devotional Worship of God. The issue is not that of accepting or rejecting the Vedas or Gurbani. The Man arrives in the world all alone. The Man departs from the world all alone. Bhagat Kabir communicates this problem of Individualistic Existence because of the separation of the Transcendent and the Immanent Realms. The Man cannot hope to ride on the shoulders of his Guru, Master, or Teacher. The man who departs from this world has to reach his Final Destination using his own effort, actions, or “KARNI.” Even, the Guru has to reach his Final Destination using his own effort, actions, or “Karni.” The disciple or Chela cannot find any exceptions to this rule. “Guru ki karni Guru jayega, Chele ki karni Chela.”

    The Gods of Monotheism. The Fundamental Separation of the Transcendent and the Immanent Realms.

    THE GODS OF MONOTHEISM 

    The Gods of Monotheism. The Fundamental Separation of the Transcendent and the Immanent Realms.

    Monotheism is a term that was introduced in an effort to study religions. It is described as a religious belief that only one God exists. This belief in a single and transcendent God contrasts particularly with Polytheism which is described as a belief in many gods.

    Such oversimplification may conceal the true identity of the Gods of Monotheism. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are the principal Monotheistic religions. The demarcation between these faiths is very easy to determine and it is not so easy to establish their common ground. Dogmatic differences or differences in articles of faith must be explicitly recognized.

    The identity of the Divine is not represented merely by the philosophical speculations about God’s essence but by the God whom men worship in all the acts of piety which comprise the rituals of religion.

    If you consider the dogmas of religion; the articles of religious faith-based solely on divine revelation, you would conclude that the Gods of Monotheism live in different Heavens. There is no chance that the God of children of Israel, The Holy Trinity (Father, Jesus, the Holy Ghost/Spirit), and the God of Ishmael could coexist in the same transcendent or immanent realm.

    The doctrinal differences are too many. There are very serious differences on matters such as salvation, the nature, and mission of the synagogue/church/masjid, the places of their worship, its rituals and sacraments.

    The Monotheist concept of religious belief has not nurtured the concept of shared humanity that is united in religious brotherhood.

    The desire to assert the dominion of the one and only true God has often lead to violence and intolerance. Historically, Monotheists have killed to gain theological as well as political dominance. The Gods of Monotheism have caused far more wars and conflicts than the many gods of Polytheism.

    The adherence to an ABSOLUTIST thesis that only my God is God has resulted in a strict demand for intolerance of others holding different creeds. The Israelites practiced the worship of one God without denying the existence of other gods and the Torah also instructs them to act decently toward one another. The trinitarian creed of Christianity sets it apart from other religions.

    The Gods of Monotheism. The Fundamental Separation of the Transcendent and the Immanent Realms.

    The Islamic interpretation of Monotheism is more literal and uncompromising than that of any other religion in the world. ‘TAWHID’ or oneness of God is the foremost article of the Muslim faith. Muslim belief is based upon the unity of Allah and the prophethood of Muhammad. To bestow Allah’s indivisible reality upon another god is considered by Muslims to be a lie, and stands as the only sin which Allah will not forgive. The Holy Book of Quran mentions that to attribute divinity to a created entity is the only unpardonable sin.

    The only point of agreement amongst Monotheistic religions is that of their hatred of idols. Polytheism is not an acceptable choice and it is considered as a form of Atheism. Idolatry ranks as perhaps the most common topic in the Bible and Quran.

    The people of India are ridiculed and are scoffed at because of their conceptions of God as anthropomorphic. Indians are verbally assaulted every day by Christian Evangelists for worshiping inanimate objects and historically, Indians were punished for being patrons of idolatry.

    In an effort to wipe out idolatry from India, numerous temples were destroyed and about 60 to 80 million people were killed between 1000 and 1525 CE.

    The Gods of Monotheism. The Fundamental Separation of the Transcendent and the Immanent Realms.

    Psalm 115, verses 4 to 8 from The Old Testament Book of Psalms, illustrates the hatred of idols:

    “But their idols are silver and gold, 

    made by the hands of men. 

    They have mouths, but cannot speak, 

    eyes, but they cannot see; 

    they have ears, but cannot hear, 

    noses but they cannot smell; 

    they have hands, but cannot feel, 

    feet, but they cannot walk, 

    nor can they utter a sound with their throats. 

    Those who make them will be like them, 

    and so will all who trust in them…” 

    THE INDIAN CONCEPT OF GOD WORSHIP 

    The Vedic Scripture of Shukla Yajurveda in its final chapter of ‘Isha Upanishad’ (Ishavasya Upanishad), verses 12-14 recommend the worship of the Divine in its Immanent (manifest, visible phenomenal forms) and it’s Transcendent (unmanifest, invisible, Absolute) forms. 

    “Into deep darkness falls those who follow the immanent. Into deeper darkness fall those who follow the transcendent. By the worship of the Manifested, one end is attained; by the worship of the Unmanifested, another.

    Thus we have heard from the wise men who taught us this. He who knows at the same time both the Unmanifested and the Manifested, he crosses over death through knowledge of the manifested and attains immortality through the knowledge of the First Cause.” 

    A HYMN FOR INVOCATION OF PEACE: 

    Tat Asmi PrabhO-God-Man Dualism-Identity-Magnitude
    The concept of One and Only One God is not compatible with the concept of Secularism.

    THAT (the Invisible or Unmanifest Absolute) is WHOLE, WHOLE is THIS (the Visible or Manifest Absolute); what has come out of WHOLE (the Invisible) is also WHOLE ( the Visible). When the WHOLE is taken out of the WHOLE, the WHOLE remains WHOLE (it remains unaltered). 

    OM! PEACE, PEACE, LET PEACE ALONE PREVAIL.

    Happy Shavuot 2021. On Sunday, May 16, I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments

    Shavuot is a Jewish celebration that gives thanks for the Torah . Jews believe that the Torah is given to them to act as a guide for their lives. Shavuot remembers the time that God spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai and gave him the Ten Commandments and other laws. In 2021Shavuot begins at sunset on Sunday, May 16 and ends at sundown on Tuesday, May 18.

    CELEBRATION OF LOVE AS A HOLIDAY TRADITION: IN JEWISH TRADITION, THE DAY OF PROCLAMATION OF TORAH TO THE JEWS AT MOUNT SINAI IN EGYPT IS CELEBRATED AS SHAVUOT, THE HARVEST HOLIDAY, THE FEAST OF WEEKS, THE HOLIDAY OF THE FIRST FRUITS. AMONG CHRISTIANS THERE IS NO COMPARABLE HOLIDAY TRADITION TO CELEBRATE THE PROCLAMATION OF THE TWO GREAT COMMANDMENTS BY JESUS CHRIST.
    Happy Shavuot 2021. On Sunday, May 16, I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments. IN THE JEWISH TRADITION, THE DAY OF PROCLAMATION OF THE TORAH TO THE JEWS AT MOUNT SINAI IN EGYPT IS CELEBRATED AS SHAVUOT, THE HARVEST HOLIDAY, THE FEAST OF WEEKS, THE HOLIDAY OF THE FIRST FRUITS. AMONG CHRISTIANS OF NUMEROUS DENOMINATIONS THERE IS NO COMPARABLE HOLIDAY TRADITION TO CELEBRATE THE PROCLAMATION OF THE TWO GREAT ‘LOVE’ COMMANDMENTS OF JESUS CHRIST WHICH IS THE BASIS FOR CHRISTIAN FAITH BOTH IN TERMS OF RELATIONS WITH GOD AND OTHER MEN.

    The word “LOVE” does not appear in the TORAH ( Law) given to the Jews at Mount Sinai. I conducted a study of the holiday traditions of the US and I am totally surprised to note that there is no traditional celebration of the Proclamation of the two Great Love Commandments of Jesus. Jewish Holiday “SHAVUOT” celebrates the giving of the ‘TORAH’ (the LAW or Instruction) to the Jews. God gave the Ten Commandments ( The Decalogue, The Code of The Ten Words)on the sixth night of the Hebrew month of ‘Sivan’. Shavuot always falls 50 days (PENTECOST) after the second night of Passover. The 49 days between Passover and Shavuot are known as ‘Omer’. While retaining the essence of The Code of The Ten Words Jesus changed the Operating Principle of the TORAH or The Law. Jesus instructs that the Law must be followed by His believers not through the use of force or authority but by simply embracing the equally powerful influence called “LOVE.”

    WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: THIS IS AN OPEN APPEAL TO ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE US CONGRESS TO PASS A DECREE OR LAW TO BEGIN A NEW TRADITION IN THE NATIONAL LIFE THAT CELEBRATES THE CENTRAL ROLE OF LOVE IN WHOLESOME HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS.
    Happy Shavuot 2021. On Sunday, May 16, I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments. THIS IS AN OPEN APPEAL TO ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE US CONGRESS TO PASS A DECREE OR LAW TO BEGIN A NEW TRADITION IN THE NATIONAL LIFE THAT CELEBRATES THE CENTRAL ROLE OF LOVE IN DEVELOPING WHOLESOME HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS.

    I am posting this article to make an open appeal to all the members of the US Congress to pass a decree or law to commence a new tradition in the national life that celebrates the central role of love in developing wholesome human relationships. I am using the term ‘Whole Body’ to describe the perfect unity of body, mind, heart, soul, and God that establishes man as a Whole Being. Love is central to the man’s relationship to God and the man’s relations with other persons. The term love includes the feelings or the emotion of love expressed by a person (“The Subject”) and it involves a personal experience evoked when another person (“The Object”) reflects the feelings of love. Love has to be known as “The Medium” that generates the attachment or devotion to another person; and this attachment implies connection by ties of affection, sexual attraction, devotion, friendship, goodwill, compassion, respect, trust, and commitment. This kind of care and concern for a person, or persons in a relationship could be called ‘Whole Love’ if whatever is done for Love occurs beyond good and evil.

    WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: GERMAN PHILOSOPHER FRIEDRICH WILHELM NIETZSCHE(1844-1900) HAD STATED: "WHAT IS DONE OUT OF LOVE ALWAYS TAKES PLACE BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL." GOD'S LOVE FOR MAN IS UNCONDITIONED.
    Happy Shavuot 2021. On Sunday, May 16, I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments GERMAN PHILOSOPHER FRIEDRICH WILHELM NIETZSCHE(1844-1900) SAYS, “WHAT IS DONE OUT OF LOVE ALWAYS TAKES PLACE BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL.” GOD’S LOVE FOR MAN IS UNCONDITIONED AND GOD LOVES MAN WITHOUT DEMANDING THAT MAN MUST ACKNOWLEDGE GOD’S LOVE..

    The concept of Holiday begins with the story of creation as revealed in the Book of Genesis and it involves the observance of a ‘Holy Day’. “And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it He rested from all the work of creating that He had done (Genesis, Chapter 2, verse#3).”

    Holiday is a day of freedom from labor sanctioned by God, and it is set aside for leisure and recreation to renew man’s relationship with his Creator. In Civil Society, certain days are set aside by Law or Custom and Traditions for the suspension of official business activities and very often in commemoration of some important events in national life. I am using the term ‘Whole Holiday’ to recognize a specific day that is set aside by Human Law in recognition of the Divine Law that is conducive to the development of harmonious, or wholesome interpersonal relationships that are essential to promote the health, and well-being of all people. In the US, there are several holidays that are legal and none of them directly address the central issue of developing Love relationships.

But this concept of romantic interest in a person is more often related to a sexual attraction and the other attributes of ‘Whole Love’ such as trust, respect, and commitment may not be always present. Secondly, the tradition of Valentine’s Day is not related to the concept of God is Love and God Loves man.

    WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: THE LAST MONDAY IN MAY IS OBSERVED AS MEMORIAL DAY IN MEMORY OF THE DEAD SERVICEMEN OF ALL WARS.
    Happy Shavuot 2021. On Sunday, May 16, I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments. THE LAST MONDAY IN MAY IS OBSERVED AS MEMORIAL DAY IN MEMORY OF THE DEAD SERVICEMEN OF ALL WARS.

    The tradition of Memorial Day holiday was instituted in 1868 as ‘Decoration Day’ to honor the Civil War dead. The last Monday in May is observed as a legal holiday in memory of the dead servicemen of all wars for they gave their precious lives to let the countrymen enjoy all their freedoms.

    WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: FOURTH OF JULY OR INDEPENDENCE DAY IS A PATRIOTIC, LEGAL HOLIDAY TO CELEBRATE THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE IN 1776.
    Happy Shavuot 2021. On Sunday, May 16, I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments. FOURTH OF JULY OR INDEPENDENCE DAY IS A PATRIOTIC, LEGAL HOLIDAY TO CELEBRATE THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE IN 1776.

    Fourth of July or Independence Day is a legal holiday to celebrate the anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

    WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: THE FIRST MONDAY IN SEPTEMBER IS A LEGAL HOLIDAY IN HONOR OF THE LABORER, THE HARD-WORKING HOURLY WAGE EARNERS AND OTHER WORKERS.
    Happy Shavuot 2021. On Sunday, May 16, I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments. THE FIRST MONDAY IN SEPTEMBER IS A LEGAL HOLIDAY IN HONOR OF THE LABORER, THE HARD-WORKING HOURLY WAGE EARNERS AND OTHER WORKERS.

    The first Monday in September is observed as Labor Day, a legal holiday to pay tribute to the American Workforce which includes millions of hard-working hourly wage earners who are often called laborers.

    WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: COLUMBUS DAY IS A LEGAL HOLIDAY COMMEMORATING THE DISCOVERY OF AMERICA ON OCTOBER 12, 1492.
    Happy Shavuot 2021. On Sunday, May 16, I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments. COLUMBUS DAY IS A LEGAL HOLIDAY COMMEMORATING THE DISCOVERY OF AMERICA ON OCTOBER 12, 1492.

    Columbus Day is a legal holiday in the US commemorating the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus on October 12, 1492. The holiday is observed on the second Monday in October.

    WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: VETERANS DAY HONORING ALL VETERANS OF THE ARMED FORCES IS A TRADITION BASED ON THE ARMISTICE DAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1918 OF WORLD WAR I.
    Happy Shavuot 2021. On Sunday, May 16, I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments. VETERANS DAY HONORING ALL VETERANS OF THE ARMED FORCES IS A TRADITION BASED ON THE ARMISTICE DAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1918 OF WORLD WAR I.

    Veterans Day is a legal holiday honoring all veterans of the armed forces. It is observed on Armistice Day – November 11, the anniversary of the armistice of World War I in 1918.

    WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: THANKSGIVING DAY IS AN ANNUAL US HOLIDAY OBSERVED ON THE FOURTH THURSDAY OF NOVEMBER AS A DAY OF GIVING THANKS AND FEASTING.
    Happy Shavuot 2021. On Sunday, May 16, I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments. THANKSGIVING DAY IS AN ANNUAL US HOLIDAY OBSERVED ON THE FOURTH THURSDAY OF NOVEMBER AS A DAY OF GIVING THANKS AND FEASTING.

    Thanksgiving Day is among the major US holiday traditions to commemorate the Pilgrims’ celebration of the good harvest of 1621 at Plymouth Colony. The US Congress decreed in 1941 to observe this holiday of Thanksgiving and feasting on the fourth Thursday of November.

    WHOLE BODY - WHOLE LOVE - WHOLE HOLIDAY: CHRISTMAS DAY, A HOLIDAY ON DECEMBER 25, CELEBRATES THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST. THE FOCUS UPON GOD'S UNCONDITIONED LOVE IS NOT ALWAYS EXPRESSED IN THIS TRADITIONAL HOLIDAY CELEBRATION.
    Happy Shavuot 2021. On Sunday, May 16, I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments: CHRISTMAS DAY, A HOLIDAY ON DECEMBER 25, CELEBRATES THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST. THE FOCUS UPON GOD’S UNCONDITIONED LOVE IS NOT ALWAYS EXPRESSED IN THIS TRADITIONAL HOLIDAY CELEBRATION.

    Christmas Day Holiday celebration should reflect the very essence of Christianity.  The Gospel according to Apostle John, Chapter 3, verse# 16 declares: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” The Christmas tradition is about the Joy that is associated with the birth of baby Jesus and the exchange of gifts to express the sense of happiness. Christmas holiday is not in remembrance of God’s Law. Jesus Christ has established ‘LOVE’ as the God’s Greatest Commandment. The Gospel according to Apostle Matthew (Chapter 22, verses#37-40), and The Gospel according to Apostle Mark (Chapter 12, verses# 28-31) describe the Commandments of Love: “Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. This is the first great commandment. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two Commandments.” The Gospel according to Apostle John, Chapter 13, verse# 34 describes the need for neighborly relations among people based upon Love: “A new command I give you: Love one another, as I have loved you, so you must love one another.”

    WHOLE LOVE-WHOLE TRADITION-WHOLE LAW-WHOLE HOLIDAY:

    Happy Shavuot 2021. On Sunday, May 16, I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments. I AM ASKING ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE US CONGRESS TO INSTITUTE A NEW LAW IN RECOGNITION OF THE WHOLE LAW OF WHOLE LOVE. THE LAST WEDNESDAY OF JULY SHOULD BE A LEGAL HOLIDAY TO CELEBRATE THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS IN JULY.

    In the United States, we have no Law, or a cultural tradition to commemorate the event in which Jesus Christ has issued the two great commandments asking people to observe the Law of ‘Whole Love’ which demands, 1. The Love of God with Whole Body, Heart, Mind, and Soul, and 2. The Love of Neighbor as a requirement of God’s Law for man. After my ‘Whole Discovery’, the discovery of the experience of ‘Whole Love’ at Whole Foods Market, Ann Arbor, Michigan on Wednesday, July 30, 2014, I have decided to promote the establishment of a ‘Whole Tradition’ to follow the Spirit of the ‘Whole Law’ to truly observe the Commandment of ‘Whole Love’. To commemorate my ‘Whole Discovery’, I am writing this appeal to ask all the members of the US Congress to approve a new Law to observe the last Wednesday of July as the ‘Whole Love Holiday’. The choice of Wednesday is very appropriate as most other legal holidays are observed on Mondays as a matter of convenience and not for the purposes of obedience to a Divine Law which should be the source and inspiration for the Human Law. The concept of ‘Whole Love’ represents the ‘Whole Law’ that is explicitly pronounced by Jesus Christ as the only Commandment that man must follow and observe in his lifetime. To acknowledge the ‘Whole Law’, to celebrate its pronouncement, we need a new ‘Whole Tradition’ which is reflected by instituting a new ‘Whole Holiday’.

    Happy Shavuot 2021. On Sunday, May 16, I ask Americans to begin a new holiday tradition to celebrate the proclamation of the Love Commandments.

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance.

    To celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 09, 2021, I account for my human existence honoring ‘The Divine attribute of Motherhood as the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance of Life, Energy, and Knowledge.

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance.

    The Divine Principle has to be both male and female and in this article, I present the feminine aspect of Divine Principle as “Whole Angel”, the harmonious blending or coming together of Angel of Beauty, Angel of Mercy, and Angel of Knowledge. My understanding of Mother and Motherhood comes from the study of the building blocks of Life. The most important building block of human life is the fertilized Egg Cell.

    THE DIVINE MOTHER OF LIFE, ENERGY, AND KNOWLEDGE : I DESCRIBE THE CONCEPT OF "WHOLE ANGEL" AS THE HARMONIOUS BLENDING OR COMING TOGETHER OF ANGEL OF BEAUTY, ANGEL OF MERCY, AND ANGEL OF KNOWLEDGE .
    HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY 2021. THE DIVINE ATTRIBUTE OF MOTHERHOOD IS THE MATERNAL CYTOPLASMIC INHERITANCE. I DESCRIBE THE CONCEPT OF “WHOLE ANGEL” AS THE HARMONIOUS BLENDING OR COMING TOGETHER OF ANGEL OF BEAUTY, ANGEL OF MERCY, AND ANGEL OF KNOWLEDGE .

    The Father and the Mother – The Principles governing Life:  

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance. Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati – The Indian Tradition describes them as the First Couple or ‘Adi Dampatulu’ or the Original Father and Mother of the human race. The Tradition recognizes the existence of a Father and a Mother Principle.

    MAATRU DEVO BHAVA, PITRU DEVO BHAVA  – THE DIVINITY OF MOTHER AND FATHER:  

    Father is described as the male parent, an ancestor, an originator, and as a Controller. Very often, in the Land of India, God is considered as both the Father and the Mother of all life forms. Mother is described as the female parent and something that is regarded as a ‘Source’. In Indian tradition, Father may be viewed as the ‘Prime Cause’ and Mother is the Source of ‘Prime Energy’. Mother is the source of energy in performance of all kinds of actions and in accomplishment of all kinds of work. The Mother Principle represents the Endeavor/Work/Effort that makes action possible. If Life is defined as function at the level of biological molecules, Mother represents the Source or the Origin of these organic molecules; Mother is the Source of Energy for the synthesis of these organic molecules; and Mother is the Source of Knowledge that provides the ability of recognition and the ability to use the molecules in a sequential manner to manage the biochemical reactions of these organic molecules to function as Life.   

    DEDICATION:   

    HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance.My Mother is known as “AMMA JI”. Biological Science provides me understanding to recognize her as the Divine Mother of Life, Energy, and Knowledge.

     I dedicate this blog post to the memory of my mother. The Biological Science provides me the understanding to recognize her as the Divine Mother of Life, Energy, and Knowledge(Angel of Beauty, Angel of Mercy, and Angel of Knowledge).   

    ANGEL OF BEAUTY – MOTHER – SOURCE OF LIFE:   

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance.Goddess Laxmi is the Divine Provider of Life, Food, and Well-being.

    The complex, multicellular human organism begins as a single cell. That single cell is the source of life, energy, and knowledge.   

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance. The Biological Dictum states “EX OVO OMNIA” – Everything comes from the Egg.
    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance.The Biological Dictum – “OMNIS CELLULA E CELLULA” means all cells from cells.
    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance of Life, Energy, and Knowledge.The Law of Biogenesis states that organisms arise only by the reproduction of other organisms. This cell known as Oocyte develops into Human Ovum or Egg Cell which begins the life of a new human organism after an event called Fertilization.

    I, as a human organism exist in this world as I arrived from a previously existing ‘Mother Cell’. By repeated cell growth and cell division or replication known as ‘Mitosis’, the human organism grows and develops into a form containing thousands of billions of cells. This process of development is called ‘Morphogenesis’ which involves not only cell growth but differentiation into specialized types of cells. All the tissues and organs of which the human body is composed have originally developed from a microscopic cell known as ‘Ovum’ or the ‘Egg Cell’. This Ovum or Egg Cell may be regarded as a perfect cell and could be described as ‘Mother Cell’. All the solid tissues in the human body can be shown to consist largely of similar cells; it is true that they may differ, but they are essentially similar to an Ovum. The Ovum is a reproductive cell that is adapted to meet the nutritional requirements of the early developmental stages of the embryo. It is always a large cell because it contains sufficient cytoplasmic substance for the development of a self-sufficient embryo. Some of the substance which is packaged in yolk particles contains cell components; typically an Ovum contains sufficient quantities of components for many cells. Thus the Ovum need not grow as it divides; as the nuclei divide, the cytoplasm subdivides until the Ovum consists of a large number of normal-sized cells. By contrast, the male reproductive cells known as ‘Spermatozoa’ contain very little cytoplasm and they cannot further divide into new cells.   

    THE SOURCE OF LIFE – PROTOPLASM:   

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance of Life, Energy, and Knowledge.There is similarity between the cells of a man and that of his Mother Cell or Egg Cell called Ovum.

    The most significant feature of the similarity between the cells of a man and that of the ‘Mother Cell’ from which he had arrived is  presence of a soft gelatinous, semi-fluid, granular material inside the cell. This substance known as ‘Protoplasm’ is similar to that found in the Ovum. The Ovum consists of this viscous, translucent, colloidal substance enclosed in a membrane called Plasma Membrane. A small spherical body called nucleus is embedded in the protoplasm. The protoplasm could also be differentiated into cytoplasm and nucleoplasm based upon its location. Cytoplasm refers to protoplasm located outside the nucleus. Nucleoplasm refers to protoplasm located inside the nucleus. The two essential features of any living cell in the human body are that of  presence of protoplasm and the nucleus.   

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021.SPIRITUALISM AND CONSCIOUSNESS: Amoeba proteus is a living organism as it has the ability to perform vital, living functions.

    The most striking characteristics of protoplasm are its vital properties of “Motion” and “Nutrition”. Protoplasm has the intrinsic power to change its shape and position. Motion of protoplasm is called ‘amoeboid movement’ as it resembles the movements observed in the Amoeba proteus animalcule. Nutrition is the power which protoplasm has of attracting itself the materials necessary for its growth and maintenance from surrounding matter and environment. The Egg Cell or the Ovum is the Source or the Mother of Life. This living matter, living substance, or corporeal material has divine attributes. It is conscious, it is aware, and it performs cognitive functions to sustain its own living condition.   

    THE LAW OF INDIVIDUALITY- HEREDITY AND VARIATION:   

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance of Life, Energy, and Knowledge. Identity and Individuality. Two-Sides of the same Coin.
    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance. A child is always a created object even when it derives its life from a Mother Cell. Life always comes into existence as a new, original object and displays variation from other members of the same or different species.

    Heredity is the sum of all biological processes by which particular characteristics are transmitted from parents to their offspring. A child inherits a genetic constitution from its biological parents. This hereditary endowment, the total of the genes that the child has received from both parents is called the genotype. The genotype of an individual is formed from the constituents of the genotypes of his parents. The genotype in a fertilized Egg Cell influences the developmental pattern of the child. Progeny is not exact duplicates of their parents and usually vary in many traits. Heredity and Variation are two sides of the same coin. The outward appearance of an organism is called the phenotype. The same individual shows different phenotypes in childhood, in adulthood, and in old age. The genotype, on the other hand, does not change during an individual’s life. Each cell in the human body contains the same total genetic information that was present in the fertilized Egg. However, the cells are not identical. In different types of cells, groups of genes are controlled ( in effect switched on and off ) by various biochemical processes, so that each cell manufactures the proteins and structures needed for it to function. Cells are regulated by the DNA in the nucleus and by the transfer of selected portions of the DNA information to the cytoplasm through the intermediate molecules of ‘Messenger RNA’. It is estimated that, on average, only about 10 percent of the genes of any cell are functional; selection of functional genes varies with the type of cell. This biological phenomenon of selective gene functioning may contribute to what I term as ‘The Law of Individuality’. Deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA accounts for the ability of all living matter to replicate itself exactly and to transmit genetic information from parent to offspring. The child maintains its individuality by selectively switching the inherited DNA on and off. The Law of Individuality applies to all living organisms. Despite the basic biological, chemical, and physical similarities found in all living things, diversity of life exists not only among and between species but also within every natural population.   

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance.Despite the basic biological, chemical, and physical similarities found in all Living cells, a Diversity of Life exists within every natural population to establish The Law of Individuality.

     The Mother Cell is the Source of Life for its child and yet the child comes into existence as a brand new and original product with its own Identity and Individuality. The Mother Cell does not manufacture the new multicellular organism called child. A child is always a created object even when it derives its life from a Mother Cell.   

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance.The Divine Phenomenon – A child always comes into existence as a created object even when it derives its life from a Mother Cell.

    ANGEL OF MERCY, GRACE, AND COMPASSION – MOTHER – SOURCE OF ENERGY:   

    To maintain life an organism not only repairs or replaces (or both) its structures by a constant supply of the materials of which it is composed but also keeps its life processes in operation by a steady supply of energy.   

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance. Goddess Shakti, a Protector, a Defender, and a Personification of all Material Energies present in Nature or Prakrit. The man exists as an Energy Seeker, a heterotroph and the human existence is possible because of an Energy Provider. Mother is the Source of Energy for man’s physical and mental work.

    Living systems must be supplied energy for continual synthesis of new organic molecules and to replace or to repair broken organic molecules. This functional activity; the processes of synthesis and breakdown of organic molecules by a living cell, is known as metabolism. Metabolism involves a living system’s continual exchange of some of its materials with its surroundings, principally in the process of building up or destroying its protoplasm. growth involves a higher rate of synthesis of protoplasm than a rate of breakdown of that matter.   

    ACQUISITION OF ENERGY:   

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance.Plant Life acquires useful free energy from the energy of Sunlight and hence described as Photoautotrophs.
    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance. Plants are known as Photoautotrophs as they have ability to use free energy from the energy of Sunlight. The Divine Mother is the Source of all Material Energies.
    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance. Chloroplasts act like Solar Panels to capture Solar Energy, and all terrestrial life forms depend upon energy from an extraterrestrial or Cosmic Source of Energy.

    Organisms acquire energy for their metabolism by two general methods and could be classified as autotrophs or self feeders and heterotrophs or feeders of other organisms. Plants are known as Photoautotrophs as they acquire useful free energy from the energy of Sunlight. In a process known as Photosynthesis, plants use Sunlight to break water into Oxygen and Hydrogen. Hydrogen is then combined with Carbon dioxide to produce such energy-rich molecules as Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and carbohydrates and the Oxygen is released back into the atmosphere. Humans and most other animals are known as heterotrophs – these organisms acquire energy by the controlled breakdown of pre-existing organic molecules ( food ) supplied by other organisms. Humans utilize the atmospheric Oxygen ( released by plant life ) to combine chemically with organic matter ( food ) they have eaten and release Carbon dioxide and water as waste products. Metabolic processes do not occur in one step. It is not similar to burning sugar in air.   

    KREB’S TRICARBOXYLIC ACID CYCLE:   

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance. Most cells derive their energy from a series of reactions involving Oxygen. In the course of Oxidation, three molecules of energy-rich ATP are generated for each Oxygen atom used to form a molecule of water. The Mitochondria is the cellular site of this respiratory Combustion.

    The glucose, a simple sugar is broken down by a series of successive and coordinated steps, each mediated by a particular and specific enzyme. The human organism extracts useful energy by a metabolic process described as Oxidation-Reduction Reactions. The glucose is broken down in a series of about 71 enzymatically catalyzed steps. The first 11 of these biochemical reactions do not involve the use of Oxygen. These Oxidation-Reduction Reactions occur in intracellular organelles known as Mitochondria in the cytoplasm of cells.   

    MITOCHONDRIA – THE POWERHOUSE OF CELLS:   

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance.In Mitochondria, many substances are oxidized and ATP, the energy-storing chemical of the cell is produced. This energy is utilized in a variety of cellular functions and activities.

    Mitochondria are typically sausage-shaped particles about 0.5 to one micron wide and about 5 to 10 microns long. They are surrounded by an outer unit membrane which controls the passage of material into and out of the mitochondria and govern their internal environment. The inner membrane is the site of the respiratory functions that make the mitochondria the so-called Powerhouse of the Cell. The inner membrane is folded repeatedly into shelf like folds called cristae which contain the enzymes that play an essential role in  conversion of the energy of foodstuffs into the energy used for cellular activities.   

    MITOCHONDRIA AND CHLOROPLASTS – A DIVINE SOURCE FOR ENERGY ACQUISITION:   

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance. Both Mitochondria and the Chloroplasts are semi-independent and self-reproducing parts of the Living Cells. It is a Divine Mechanism to provide Energy for Metabolism the characteristic of Living Matter.
    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance.The Mitochondria have a degree of “AUTONOMY” and they are unlike the other components of cells.

    Mitochondria and Chloroplasts found in the green plant cells perform the same fundamental processes. The Chloroplasts contain the green colored pigment known as Chlorophyll. The Chloroplasts convert the energy of Sunlight into energy-rich ATP and use ATP to convert Carbon into specific organic substances. The most important equations for living things are mutually inverse. Respiration of human organisms represents the reverse of Photosynthesis of Green Plants. Both Mitochondria and the Chloroplasts are semi-independent and self-reproducing parts of the living cells. They have a degree of autonomy and they are unlike the other components of cells. Mitochondria contain DNA in the form of a Chromosome arranged in a ring. The DNA of  Mitochondria has different distribution of bases from that of the DNA found in the Chromosomes present in the nucleus. Mitochondria carry the genes for their own replication and for the enzymes found in them. They can synthesize some of their own proteins and reproduce by themselves. In one respect the mitochondria function as the parts of the cells and in another respect, they behave like independent organisms that reproduce on their own.   

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance. A group of Mitochondria – Computer artwork. Who has “Designed” the Mitochondria? Do they represent a Divine Mechanism to provide Energy to Energy Dependent Living Organisms?

    The Mother Cell is the source of Mitochondria found in all the cells of my human body. During the Growth and Development of Human Embryo and Fetus, all the newly formed cells contain Mitochondria derived from the Egg Cell. Hence, mother as a biological parent represents the Source of Energy for all the Living Functions and activities of her children. I cannot move a muscle in my body without drawing energy supplied by the maternal Mitochondria which continue to live and replicate establishing my mother as the Source of Energy for my existence during my entire Life’s Journey.   

    ANGEL OF KNOWLEDGE – MOTHER – SOURCE OF KNOWLEDGE:   

    Life is the state of an individual characterized by the capacity to perform certain functional activities including the ability of responsiveness. Life is further characterized by  presence of complex transformation of organic molecules and by organization of such molecules into the successively larger units of protoplasm, cells, organs, and tissues. Hence, I have defined Life as “Knowledge in Action.”   

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance. Goddess Sarasvati is the Divine Mother of Knowledge. Indian Tradition recognizes Mind, and Intellect as aspects of Material Energies. Life functions with Knowledge implanted into Living Organisms which display the characteristics of awareness, responsiveness, alertness, and consciousness.

    Responsiveness represents the ability of an organism to change in response to alteration in its environment. Responsiveness, alertness, awareness, and consciousness separates living from nonliving matter and defines life’s underlying principle. Living cells are aware or conscious of the environment in which they exist as well as the state of their own internal environment. The one very important part of environment of a cell is other cells. The ability called awareness and responsiveness is important for recognition, association, and cooperation between cells. Cells function together by exchanging chemical signals.   

    THE BIOLOGICAL MEMBRANE – AN ORGAN OF SENSE PERCEPTION:   

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance.The Biological Membrane or Plasma Membrane functions like an Organ of Sense Perception and it maintains cell’s internal environment and establishes contact with cell’s external environment.

    Cell is the most elementary unit of Life. Cell is bounded by a Plasma Membrane which is more correctly described as a Biological Membrane. It separates the cell from the environment and from other cells. It helps to maintain a constant milieu in which intracellular reactions occur. The Biological Membrane allows a highly controlled exchange of matter across the barrier it poses, some compounds are able to pass through the membrane easily, others are blocked. Cells contain various internal structures such as the nucleus, and mitochondria, each of which is enclosed by a Membrane. Both the Biological Membrane and some of the intracellular membranes are parts of a continuous Membrane System that extends through much of the body of the cell. It serves two purposes. A compartmentalization of  cell is required for many cellular activities, including uptake and conversion of nutrients, synthesis of new molecules, production of energy, transportation, and release of cell products, and regulation and coordination of metabolic sequences. The cellular organelles are protected from one another’s enzymatic activities, and those of the cytoplasm. The Biological Membrane System functions like an Organ of Sense Perception and maintains the responsiveness of the cell.   

    THE CYTOPLASMIC OR MATERNAL INHERITANCE:   

    Deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA accounts for the ability of all living matter to replicate itself exactly and to transmit genetic information from parent to offspring. While offspring inherit a genetic constitution and hereditary traits from both parents, some characteristics are inherited through the maternal line only. For example, there are no Chlorophyll containing Chloroplasts in pollen grains of  ( male ) flowers. The act of Pollination does not contribute this most important characteristic known as Chloroplasts. Chloroplasts are found only in the Egg Cells of  ( female ) flowers. Similarly, humans inherit the Powerhouses called Mitochondria only from Maternal cytoplasm. A Cytoplasmic Inheritance is entirely Maternal. Human functions that involve Sensory Perception, Mental Cognition, Learning, and the functions of Memory and Consciousness should be viewed as functions of the cytoplasm. Cytoplasm represents the Seat of Knowledge. Man begins Life as a single cell with its cytoplasm. The cell grows and divides while building more of its cytoplasm. Knowledge is    Fact of Knowing,  State of Knowing, and  Act of Knowing a range of information, the Mother or the Source of Knowledge is the Maternal Cytoplasm inherited from the Egg Cell, Ovum, or the Mother Cell.   

    Kindly listen to this hymn “Yaa Devi Sarva Bhuteshu” to give recognition to The Divine Mother of Life, Energy, and Knowledge.  

    Happy Mother’s Day 2021. The Divine attribute of Motherhood is the Maternal Cytoplasmic Inheritance.

    On Saturday, May 01, 2021, the Senior Alien celebrates The International Labor Day, The International Workers’ Day, or The May Day by sending ‘MAYDAY’ Distress Signal for he has no legal right to his wages or earnings contributed to the Public Trust Fund that pays the Monthly Retirement Benefit to workers who attained the Full Retirement Age performing labor in the US as per the US Labor Law.

    May Day is a public holiday celebrated on May 1 in many different cultures around the world. It is a day of unity, togetherness, and rebirth; a day for everyone to come together and celebrate life as we know it!

    THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA – A SLAVE STATE:

    WholeDude-WholeSlave: Emancipation Proclamation by President Abraham Lincoln during September 1862. United States has officially abolished the practice of slavery and has now institutionalized the practice of Servitude and the Union has transformed from a 'Free State' into a 'Slave State.'
    Saturday, May 01, 2021. Sending the Mayday Distress Signal in the Celebration of The International Workers’ Day. Emancipation Proclamation by President Abraham Lincoln during September 1862. The United States has officially abolished the practice of slavery and has now institutionalized the practice of Bondage and Servitude and the Union has transformed from a ‘Free State’ into a ‘Slave State.’

    President Abraham Lincoln issued the ‘Emancipation Proclamation’ in September 1862 that went into effect on January 01, 1863 freeing the slaves in all territory still at War with the Union. The term ‘Free State’ refers to any State of the U.S. in which slavery was forbidden before the Civil War. The term ‘Slave State’ refers to any of the States in which slavery was legal before the Civil War. After abolishing slavery, the United States Department of Labor was established in 1913 to administer and enforce statutes that promote the welfare, improve the working conditions of all laborers or workforce. In modern economic life, the term laborer describes all manual workers whose work is characterized largely by physical exertion, and especially it refers to workers who labor to earn wages on an hourly basis without the benefit of a contractual agreement with their employers. The term Labor Law refers to legislation that affects workers, and the conditions of their employment. Labor Law is the body of law applied to such matters as employment, remuneration, and conditions of work. In its most comprehensive sense, the Labor Law includes Old Age and Disability Insurance. The characteristic of all labor is that it consumes some part of the short days and years of human life. The essence of all labor is that of the time and life it consumes to deliver a wage or earning to support the life it consumes.

    THE U.S. SOCIAL SECURITY ACT OF 1935:

    WholeDude-WholeSlave: The characteristic of all types of labor is that it consumes time and life. The hours, the days, the weeks, the months, and the years that alien workers spend performing labor on the US soil must give the basic protection of the meagre wages they earn on a hourly basis. SSA has institutionalized the practice of Bondage and Servitude by seizing the contributions made by alien workers for their retirement income in Old Age.

The hours, the days, the weeks, the months, and the years that alien workers spend performing labor on the US soil must give the basic protection of the meager wages they earn on an hourly basis. SSA has institutionalized the practice of Bondage and Servitude by seizing the contributions made by alien workers for their retirement income in Old Age.

    The U.S. Social Security Act(1935) established a retirement insurance plan called Social Security which is a public program providing for economic security and welfare of persons who make contributions to fund the program. The Health Insurance Plan called Medicare was added in 1965. It is administered by the Social Security Administration(SSA) of the Department of Health and Human Services. Medicare provides basic hospital insurance for persons aged 65 and over after they make contributions to fund the program. The Federal Insurance Contributions Act(FICA) ensures that the wages are reported by the employers and SSA and Medicare deductions are made from the paychecks of the employees before they receive their paychecks or wages, or earnings. The worker pays 6.2 percent of the earnings as SSA contribution and the employer pays 6.2 percent of the wage earned as SSA contribution to provide retirement income to that worker. Similarly, 2.9 percent is paid into the Medicare Program, half by the worker and half by the employer.

    ALIEN WORKERS PAY SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE CONTRIBUTIONS:

    WholeDude-WholeSlave: The United States Department of Health and Human Services has institutionalized the practice of slavery and servitude by denying access to the benefit called health insurance plan Medicare to alien workers aged 65 and over who have paid into the system by payroll deductions authorized by Federal Insurance Contributions Act(FICA).
    Saturday, May 01, 2021. Sending the Mayday Distress Signal in the Celebration of The International Workers’ Day. The United States Department of Health and Human Services has institutionalized the practice of slavery and servitude by denying access to the benefit of health insurance plan called Medicare to alien workers aged 65 and over who have paid into the system by payroll deductions authorized by Federal Insurance Contributions Act(FICA).

    The United States employs a large number of alien workers and millions of these workers are issued paychecks from which billions of dollars are deducted and flow directly to the Social Security Administration(SSA) every year. For example, for the year 2007, about $11.2 billion went into the Social Security Trust Fund, and $2.6 billion went into Medicare. These funds are utilized to pay the legal residents of the United States who receive their Social Security income and Medicare health insurance benefits. At the same time, the alien workers who do not become legal residents of the United States will not receive any income from the wages they earned while they labored on the soil of the United States. These alien workers cannot participate in the Health Insurance Exchange, a new program introduced by President Obama through a Law known as the Affordable Health Care Act went into effect on October 01, 2013. Several of these alien workers have already fully subscribed to the public health insurance program called Medicare and their contributions are taken by payroll deductions. These alien workers aged 65 and over are denied access to health care insurance even while they still continue to labor on the U.S. soil and still are paying into the System that gives them no benefit. These alien workers aged 66 and over have attained their full retirement age working in the United States under the provisions of the U.S. Labor Law which established the principles of equal opportunity and protection from discrimination based upon age, sex, race, or country of origin. It is apparent that the United States has institutionalized the practice of slavery by denying the retirement income and health insurance benefit to those alien workers who made their lifetime contributions according to the laws enforced by the country.

    WHAT IS SLAVERY?

    The term servant is used to describe a person employed to perform services to earn a wage, or income by providing labor. The term ‘Slavery’ refers to the condition of a slave, serf, or the like which is stated as ‘Servitude’. The term ‘Servitude’ is specifically used to refer to labor in which the person who performs the labor has no right to his earnings from labor. The term ‘Bondage’ implies any condition of subjugation or depriving a person the right to his property or earning. Serf is any person who is oppressed or has no freedom. Both Servitude and Bondage involve subjection of a person to some force, compulsion, or influence that takes away freedom, and dignity of the human being who by his birth is thought to be born free, and equal. In the United States, the Nation, or the State has institutionalized the practice of Slavery by enacting Laws that would empower the State to withhold the property or wage paid by the employer to his employee without any formal approval or consent of the affected worker who performs labor. At the full age of retirement of 66-years, the alien worker who spent the hours, the days, the weeks, the months, and the years of his life performing labor in the United States, gets denied all the earnings he earned for his retirement to lead a life in his Old Age with basic human dignity. I have no term other than that of “SLAVE STATE” to describe the country that is holding people in a condition called Bondage and Servitude.

    The Dignity of Work and the Rights of Workers

    http://www.usccb.org/beliefs-and-teachings/what-we-believe/catholic-social-teaching/the-dignity-of-work-and-the-rights-of-workers.cfm

    I am sharing the views endorsed by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in promoting ‘The Dignity of Work and the Rights of Workers. I want to clarify that I am neither a Communist nor a Socialist. I am affiliated to a military organization sponsored by the United States during the Cold War Era to contain the spread of Communism in Asia.

    “The economy must serve people, not the other way around. Work is more than a way to  make a living; it is a form of continuing participation in God’s creation. If  the dignity of work is to be protected, then the basic rights of workers must  be respected–the right to productive work, to decent and fair wages, to the  organization and joining of unions, to private property, and to economic  initiative.”

    Tradition  

    I would like to remind everyone,  especially governments engaged in boosting the world’s economic and social  assets, that the primary capital to be safeguarded and valued is man, the  human person in his or her integrity: “Man is the source, the focus and the  aim of all economic and social life.” (Pope Benedict XVI, Charity  in Truth [Caritas in Veritate. . . ], no. 25, quoting Second Vatican Council, The Church in the Modern World [Gaudium et Spes. . . ], no. 63)

    As the Church solemnly reaffirmed in the  recent Council, “the beginning, the subject and the goal of all social  institutions is and must be the human person.”   All people have the  right to work, to a chance to develop their qualities and their personalities in  the exercise of their professions, to equitable remuneration which will enable  them and their families “to lead a worthy life on the material, social,  cultural and spiritual level” and to assistance in case of need arising from sickness or age. (Blessed Paul VI, A Call to Action [Octogesima Adveniens. . . ], no. 14)

    EARTH DAY 2021. THE CELEBRATION OF MOTHER EARTH

    The First Earth Day Celebration was held on April 22, 1970. It has now become a global tradition to celebrate Planet Earth as man’s only home in this vast universe of unknown dimensions. In Indian tradition, I pay my tribute to Mother Earth, Goddess Earth often adoringly described as BHU DEVI or PRITHVI MATA.

    Thursday, April 22, 2021. The Celebration of Mother Earth.

    The man’s existence on surface of planet Earth demands the experience of Flat Earth with Arched Dome on which the man observes the apparent motions of Sun, Moon, planets, and stars. The man experiences alternating periods of Day and Night, and experiences changing Seasons in consistent manner without experiencing the true or real motions of Earth.

    THE FIRST EARTH DAY

    Author: History.com Staff Website Name: History.com URL: Publisher: A+E Networks

    Earth Day, an event to increase public awareness of the worlds environmental problems, is celebrated in the United States for the first time. Millions of Americans, including students from thousands of colleges and universities, participated in rallies, marches, and educational programs.

    Earth Day was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, a staunch environmentalist who hoped to provide unity to the grassroots environmental movement and increase ecological awareness. The objective was to get a nationwide demonstration of concern for the environment so large that it would shake the political establishment out of its lethargy, Senator Nelson said, and, finally, force this issue permanently onto the national political agenda. Earth Day indeed increased environmental awareness in America, and in July of that year the Environmental Protection Agency was established by special executive order to regulate and enforce national pollution legislation.

    On April 22, 1990, the 20th anniversary of Earth Day, more than 200 million people in 141 countries participated in Earth Day celebrations.
    Earth Day has been celebrated on different days by different groups internationally. The United Nations officially celebrates it on the vernal equinox, which usually occurs about March 21.
