Good wish

Brother Dasanrangarajan has very kind sharing a good contemplation, through our discussion on Blogcatalog. I feel good after reading it many times. I think, it's good if I share it here. I do not intend to bring you referring to a particular religion / belief, but only want to share the good things. Hopefully you will also feel good with the contemplation below:

I asked Lord Krishna to do away with my vices.
Krishna said: They are not there for me to take them away. They are there for you to resist them.

I asked Lord Krishna to complete my body.
Krishna said: Your spirit is complete, your body is only temporary.

I asked Lord Krishna to give me patience.
Krishna said: Patience is a byproduct (side products) of difficulties. It is not given but learned.

I asked Lord Krishna to give me happiness.
Krishna said: I give blessings. Happiness depends upon you.

I asked Lord Krishna to free me of pain.
Krishna said: Suffering makes you go far away from this world and brings you nearer to me.

I asked Lord Krishna to make my spirit grow.
Krishna said: You have to grow by yourself! But I will prune you to make you bear fruit.

I asked Lord Krishna for the things that would make me like life.
Krishna said: I will give you life, so you can enjoy all those things.

I asked Lord Krishna to help me LOVE others, like He loves me.
Krishna said: Ohhh..., finally... you got the idea!

So, let's get together and feel alright.


  1. amazing words!! how deep reflection...thanks for sharing, I'm fine, then here I am, just little bit busy doing something :)

  2. Did I grasp the drift of the message if I summarize it as: 'don't look up to heaven for solutions but relate to fellow men and women and take your own responsibility to cope with life'?

    Wise words indeed.

  3. Thank you for appreciating the Words of My Lord Krishna. I'm "hankering" for more peace-loving peoples like Our Brother Tikno and all of you. Together we could make this world a better place to live in. Yes, "Heaven" shouldn't become "cause of calamities". Our Colson also got the point very nicely. I remembered the late Mother Theresa of Kolkatta said something like this. "The starving peoples weren't die because of GOD's will, but because we didn't care about them." The point was similar with Colson's insight.

  4. Hi love, thanks for vist in my site.
    Greeting from Italy. Caribù

  5. Zahra Khusnul Lathifa - Thank you. This wise words is a gift from Brother Dasanrangarajan.

    Colson - Dasanrangarajan has replied to your comment with very amazing.
    Thank you Dasanrangarajan, you are a wise man.

    Caribu_gruppi - Welcome to my blog and greeting from Indonesia.

  6. We are all who we are and what we do reflects who we are ... Life is what we make it good or bad... We can still have a good life if bad things happen... God Bless yu and your family hope all is well for you and yours... Take Care my friend...

  7. I asked Mbah Surip to build a good friendship. Mbah Surip said, "I love you full, ha..ha...ha.."

  8. We cannot survive without the grace and mercy of God. He rules and holds the whole world in His hands whether we want to beleive it or nor. Man wants to live independent of God....he wants to be in control.

  9. Mother Thersa was the hands and feet of Christ.

  10. wise words, we should think all for one and one, share each others to make better future for all of us

  11. Oops, sory mising words, I mean,
    wise words, we should think all for one and one for all, share each others to make better future for all of us :D

  12. JK - You are right. Good or bad is a matter of choice, and its result reflect on who we are.

    Seno - Oh... I also love to his motto: "I love you FULL".

    Amrita - Of course because of God then we are alive. God loves human and already put down His rules in this world, and finally human makes a choice.
    Mother Teresa also said: "Do not wait for leaders, do it alone, person to person"

    Rachmat - Nice words, thank you!

  13. Rusa Bawean - Thank you.

  14. Beautiful post Tikno.

  15. Rummuser - Thank you.

  16. Thank you for your response Tikno.

    Since you write about various religions and philosophy, I am just curious to know , if there is any particular religion you follow?
    Are you a Muslim, Buddhist or Christian?
    I hope you don 't mind me asking. I am just curious because you have good knowledge.


  18. Thank you for sharing. It's obvious to me that you are a man of great tolerance. Our country needs people like you.

  19. Amrita - Wouww... you makes me surprised.
    Okay, before marriage, I am Christian (not fanatic). Then I met a woman (now my wife) that I love and she was Buddhist. For you know that inter-religion marriage is not applied in Indonesia. So we have to make a choice and eventually we married in Buddhism. It doesn't matter for me because my family already influenced by Confucius and many relatives are also Buddhist, so I know Buddhism as well.
    I also have many Muslim friends here and often discus with them about religion just to share each other to find the similarity in goal. I also ever live in Bali for nine years where majority are Hindu and I sense so much love and humility in Balinese society.
    Finally I realized that we need love, care each other, respect differences, accepting and be acceptable in a community, with God as our spiritual leader and the way.

    Waluyo - I'm glad you like it. Welcome to my blog.

    Eha - You make me blush.

  20. Beautiful, my friend! Lets get together to build a new world of loving brotherhood. We got the idea! hahahhaa

    Hug and blessings,

  21. This tremendous internetic thing didn't allow me to enter my post as Haver. I guess internet also need love, hahahhaha

  22. “To be silent is the biggest art in a conversation”

  23. Haver - Yes, we got the idea. Thank you for the nice words.

    Trafsilo - But..., always silent also make the conversation boring.

    Chika - Thank you.

STOP the hatred war in the social networking site

Lately, I feel very worried by unscrupulous users of Facebook who already out of the spirit of Facebook motto namely "Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life". Some of Facebook users who use this site only for uploading pornographic images and shared it using private setting to certain people (not shared to everyone) and the other using it for spreading the hatred feelings, like a Facebook Group calling for Obama's death.

Although a very controversial Pages on Facebook namely "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" which it created by Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris has been closed by Facebook after receiving protests from various parties including protests from the Indonesian government, the most recent controversy is the two opposing group on Facebook who mocked each other namely: "Everybody Draw Mohammed day (Indonesian version)" and the other one is "Everybody Draw Jesus day (Indonesian version)". As I observed on its la…


In this post I only quotes the things associated with the two words above. Please use your sense and read carefully to find and feel the fundamental differences from it.

According to Wikipedia: "A veto, Latin for "I FORBID" is used to denote that a certain party has the right to stop unilaterally a certain piece of legislation. In practice, the veto can be ABSOLUTE (as in the U.N. Security Council, whose permanent members can block any resolution). In the United Nations Security Council, the five permanent members (the United States, Russia, the People's Republic of China, France and the United Kingdom) have veto power in substantive matters, though NOT in procedural ones. If any of these countries votes against a proposal, it is REJECTED, even if all of the other member countries vote in favor.

According to Global Policy Forum: "The five permanent members of the Security Council (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States) ENJOY the privileg…

Equalize bachelor's degree with diploma's degree

At this time many Indonesian students continue to the higher education in various universities in Australia to obtain academic degrees such as Bachelor, Master or Doctorate. My three cousin and several other relatives also continue the higher education in Australia after finished Senior High School in Indonesia.

But I was startled after knowing the news from Antara News that the policy of Directorate General of Higher Education (Department of National Education) is to equalize Bachelor degree from several universities in Australia only equal to the Diploma-3 degree (D-3) in Indonesia. This policy was determined on 01 July 2009 within the Peraturan Direktur Jendral Pendidikan Tinggi (English : Regulation of Directorate General of Higher Education) Nomor:82/DIKTI/Kep/2009 concerning the assessment guidelines to certificate of foreign graduate. This regulation was followed up with the surat edaran Direktur Akademik (circular letter from Academic Director) No: 1850.1/D2.5/2009. At point n…

What a PhD mean for you

What is Ph.D.? Yes I know it is a prestigious academic degree. Only that? Hmm... I think NO. It's hard to describe it in words. You better focus on the illustration below:

And... the things that made me fall silent is what was said by Matt, below:
If you zoom in on the boundary of human knowledge in the direction of genetics, there's something just outside humanity's reach. My wife and I chose to start funding these graduate students after we learned that our son has a rare, fatal genetic disorder. It may be too late for my son, but it's not too late for other children. Even one child suffering is one child too many. The only way to end this kind of suffering is science. And, the best way to do science is through graduate students.

What a beautiful thoughts that touched my heart.

Kartini's Day and Indonesian women

Recently on April 21 the Indonesian nation commemorate Kartini's Day. Actually Kartini's Day is similar to Mother's Day (celebrated in Indonesia on December 22) or International Women's Day. Perhaps to understand Mother's Day you need to understand a person in your life called Mother, and for the International Women's Day and Kartini's Day perhaps you need to understand the person in your life called wife or sister. If you are underestimating women then firstly you need to look at your mother. Am I wrong?

In short: That is all for women. In wider meaning: That is how these special Day to further raise the awareness of Indonesian society or even the world - especially the women themselves - about women rights, their struggle for equality, and their important role in various spheres of life. This is also an occasion for Indonesian women to review how far their struggle get acknowledgment especially from the point of view of Indonesian traditional society who…
