If my memory is correct, this is the only Avatar where one Avatar of Vishnu met another.

Parashurama met Lord Rama, who is also an Avatar of Vishnu met Ram after His marriage with Sita, while he was on His way to Ayodhya.

Parashurama was a Man who vowed to wipe out Kshatriyas for 21 Generations for Karthaviryaarjuna, a Kshatriya having killed His father Jamadagni.

He was more angry at Rama for Rama had broken the Bow, Shiva Dhanus at Sita’s Swayamwar, which was given by Him to Janaka, Foster Father of Sita.

Silence you are the diamond in me,
The Jewel of my real wealth!
From your soft earth,
Grow thousands of rose gardens,
Whose perfumes drown me in my heart.

Barriers to Personal Growth – Do you refuse to see them?

YOU University Online

Are You Keeping Your Head in the Sand?

ostrichLook around. Denial is everywhere – about being in a lousy relationship; about how you treated someone; about how much money you have.

Are these barriers to personal growth? Being human means we are all pretty much subject to this state of mind. I’ve been told it is a protective construct. I’m sure it is and it is also appropriate to take my head out of the sand and look around when I don’t need that protection any more.

What I need to fully take my head out of the sand and keep it out is about frequent exercise .  This is my barrier.

There are many things leaders need to do to build a culture of high trust. One important concept is to continually develop their people.

When people see a pathway to higher capability, their work is more interesting and rewarding, so they become more engaged in it.

In high development organizations, people trust the managers to improve their lot in life by making them more valuable to the organization. They recognize the company’s investment in growing them, and they naturally return the favor by applying themselves further to their work.

The Amazing Secret in your Heart

Albert EinsteinAlbert Einstein, the scientific genius of the twentieth century and perhaps of all human history had some advice on how to live our lives:

“There are only two ways to live your life:
One is as though nothing is a miracle
The other is as though everything is a miracle”.          

Most of us go through the daily routine of life quite casually. The sun rises and sets and we never marvel that it does. Our friends and relatives come and go and we never wonder where they go. Our hearts keep on beating day after day and we never stand in awe at the miracle taking place inside our unique bodies. Life is not a mystery for us; life is just a daily experience that goes on and on, most of the time being quite dull, boring and repetitive.

But what if we began to see…
