Hello, Dear Parent Friends of the Web!

Here is a touch of my wisdom... to make a difference in the tapestry of LIFE! 


The sky mourns in sorrow
On this Thanksgiving day
November 23, 2017
For countless precious beings
Terminated, in vain
In keeping with an age-old tradition
of a pilgrim heritage
Some hunters and food gatherers
of a different stage in civilization

Does it make moral sense, though

In this day and age
When choices are abundant, of course
to exercise the human free-will
in unconditional compassion

Humans rejoice, regrettably

in delusion and denial
Amidst others' sorrow and lamentation...
Of kindred beings of ONE ESSENCE 
Who treasured their right for survival

Just know, there is just one supreme presence

of incessantly evolving many expressions
As a cosmic ballet surreal, and ever-transient
To the pulsations and rhythms of...
A sole symphony of manifold vibrations
Orchestrated from the infinite to the infinitesimal
All of which are of ONE TASTE and ONE SUBSTANCE
As such, LOVE alone—the TRUTH ULTIMATE!

The universal law—all-transcendent, nonetheless

The equalizing force in operation
Over and beyond human speculation
Unfailingly, brings to bear
the fruits of body-speech-mind
As such, pain given, will be pain taken
with no exception!

Beware the moral law, sublime

Transcends space and time
While it operates across 'space and time'
Mysteriously, when cooperative conditions are aligned
As time and opportunity unite
While circumstance is defined!

The world of experience, hence, is none else

but a momentary manifestation
As 'the here' and the 'the now'
Along a causal continuum
The river of 'form and being' 
with neither beginning, nor ending
Emanating the aura of sentient perception
Confused or radiant!

 Let me walk you along the path of peace and grace. Humanity cries out loud for help.

Today and every day, I give thanks to the NOBLE-MINDED who live to cherish the welfare of all fellow-beings of sentience that graze our planet EARTH's beautiful habitats, surpassing distinctions and differentiations.

Today and everyday, I give thanks to all beings of precious sentience...

  • human and non-human
  • large and small
  • strong and weak
  • powerful and defenseless
  • near and far
  • seen and unseen

...whose lives are terminated or compromised, WITHOUT CHOICE, to feed the distasteful cravings of the SELF-GRATIFYING IGNORANT, blinded by lustful sense-pleasure and egoism—exacerbated by the transient exercise of worldly power—manifested as any one, or more in combination, of the following evil out-flowings of body-speech-mind:

  • passion (cravings propelled by sense appeasement)
  • aversion (to that which is not self-serving)
  • delusion (inability to see the deep interconnectedness of all things)
  • prejudice and discrimination
  • greed (to amass material wealth, power, and glory)
  • instinctual cravings/gluttony
  • self-exoneration
  • aggression and enmity
  • irresponsibility and denial
  • insensitivity
  • hypocrisy
  • amorality

Today, and everyday, I give thanks to the EVER-PRESENT UNIVERSAL SCHEME OF MORAL JUSTICE—OF EQUALITY AND RECIPROCITY—that continually and sublimely heals and balances all evil out-flowings of body-speech-mind, as aforementioned, until lessons are learned over time, and time again!

Today, and every day, I pay homage to my beloved parentsDIONICIOUS AND MILDRED GUNAWARDENAfor bestowing in me, and my siblings—not forgetting my parents' well-cherished grandchildren—the morally grounded conditioning to light up our lives with other-centered compassion and wisdom.

Today, and every day, I deeply appreciate my kaleidoscopic human heritage—of diverse configurations and mental attitudes—endowed with the potential for higher realization.

Last, but not least, I thank all facets of LOVE in the SUPREME UNIVERSAL TAPESTRY of 'RELATIVE BEING' that made my own life possible, enabling me to carry out my human purpose fully (for myself), and usefully—to all mind-body processes that are indispensably interspersed with mine.

Let me walk you along the path of peace and grace. Humanity cries out loud for help.

Hello, Dear Parent Friends of the Web!

Here is a touch of my wisdom... to make a difference in the tapestry of life.


Our human reality is the long conditioned response to the quality of mind held through ever-vacillating time and space between 'a past' and 'a future'. We continue to operate in a field of separateness spurred by divisive body, speech, and thought, blinded by the darkness of egoistic ignorance. The 'self' delusively apprehends its objectthe world of multiplicity and diversitypropelled by  desire, in the guise of passion and aversion; from its dualistic purview, it fails to recognize that the subject and object, together, form 'one whole' as the seamless ocean of LOVE that permeates all of 'being'transcending name and form. The dull-witted subject loses recognition that it is an integral aspect (a momentarily materialized universal)⏤erroneously seen as individuationwithin an inconceivable web of interrelatedness and interpenetration of phenomena. This aspect of particularizing and discriminating consciousnesscalled the selfis the insidious reason beneath the avalanches of experience we encounter as both 'good and evil' while the latter overshadows the psychological spectrum in relation to sensory impressions, perception and conception.

Each of us, in the depth of our consciousness, wish for peace and well being; we, however, remain entrenched in our deeply ingrained habitual patterns propelled by the father of self-centric ignorance and the mother of desirebringing to bear the off-springs of craving, clinging and attachment towards multitudinous 'name and form'and all of these, along the blind pursuit of happiness. 

More often, than not, our life-force tainted by the scar tissues of emotive and cognitive unrest revolves around the fulfillment of self-worthiness and self-elevation shunning and reducing the self worthiness of other beings. This is the most obvious catalyst of our personal degradation and volatility all the way around, despite every effort made in defense of the self alone! We continually overlook our ground from which we have emerged and that is, needless to say, through cooperation and interdependence, as opposed to segregation. Succinctly said and asked, as both relational and provisional beingsempty of self-entity or identityhow, then, can we in our proper frame of mind, find justification to embellish the so called 'self' and disregard another? Paradoxically, the egoistic mind (the subjective consciousness that feels, thinks, and wills) as a self-evolving phenomenon is conditioned by externality, while it simultaneously conditions its objectthe worldreactively, spurred and colored by its internal baggage of habit energy or memory.

It is, hence, an apparent truth that our world is fashioned and perpetuated by our internal attitudes! Our attitudes, in turn, intermingle with others' attitudes and we are perpetually and subconsciously affected by a kind of osmosis in which we live and breathe. The more we focus our attention upon dismantling the egocentricity of 'self' insightfully and systematically, the more altruistically intentioned and 'other-centered' we shall become! Above all things, a morally ordered universe of 'equality and reciprocity' calls for an ethically balanced world; it must be launched at the level of the grassroots of  societythe family.               

Let us also be aware, the twin moral principles of 'selflessness'as the 'supreme wisdom' and  'unconditional compassion' are inextricably woven into the sublime tapestry of LOVEequalizing and harmonizing the aggregate picture of life and being. Our intentions and motivations that defy these universal principles only lead us to no gain, but suffering alone. Rest assured, our deed performing world of externality is entirely a projection of compartmentalized thought. Thought, the precursor to good and evil, is a mere conglomeration of human fantasy and ideology rooted in fragmented mental processes. The world, our human reality, therefore, may only be transformed in one direction or another by the conscious choices we make at the level of individuality, slowly but surely, bearing an influence upon the collective for the better or for the worst. 

Today, though, the world cries for help. It is in all sorts of  disarrayclimatically, environmentally, politically, socially, culturally, and economically. This, of course, may be attributed to the psychological confusion that exists in our minds! Regrettably, this state of affairs is stoked by the malady of our erroneously grounded mind of discrimination and falsity of reasoning, thereby, giving rise to consequential and inevitable human psychological imbalances of varying propensities. 

However, if the mind is treated with tender loving carere-directing it to recognize the futility of discriminating thought grounded upon dualistic, false reasoning and imaginationit bears the potential to find healing and transformation; if, in fact, the disturbance in the mind is addressed with thoughtfulness and understanding, societal change for the better and world order will be the automatic consequence! The main disturbance, sadly, is the deeply ingrained self-destructive attitude that looms 'within' and nurtured relentlessly by the counterproductive habit energies (on the most part) of an irrevocable past.  It takes profound understanding and effort to break away from old habit-patterns and deep-rooted prejudices, so that the antidotal 'help to life' virtues may be cultivated with the 'right understanding' and 'right view' in support of our morally grounded human purpose on earth. 

Altruistic motivation and intention, together, are the pivotal keys to recovery from mental disarray and, therefore, peace all the way aroundboth individually and collectively. Altruism is the practice of unconditional loving kindness and compassion⏤seeing through the eyes of all beings of sentience⏤without exceptions. Altruism must begin in the home, within the family, and extended to the immediate family circle⏤gradually expanding to the greater community and society at large. The practice of loving kindness towards all creatures of sentience is the stepping stone to overcoming our human failures. Those who indulge in harming precious lifeclaiming dominion over themcontinue to reman in the darkness of ignorance and denial, feeling the need to justify the choices they make in their foolhardiness.The supreme moral code of the universe, though, is the ultimate ground of justification and may it be known that the character and spiritual evolution of an individual is defined by the way he treats all beings of sentience⏤not limited only to humans. All conclusively, spiritual realization surpasses the intellect that leans on language and expression, imagination, blind belief in religious dogma, and self-gratifying worship. The supreme noble wisdom may only be discerned, contemplatively, by clearing the inclusions of mind and returning to our true and original nature that is awakened and resides at the deepest seat of our consciousness. 

Let us wake up! When we hurt others we hurt ourselves! The substratum of awareness holds and preserves all imprints of particularizing consciousnessas body-speech-mind experiencebringing to bear their due maturation while balancing the equation of 'equality and reciprocity' in our morally ordered universe. 

All things of kaleidoscopic emanation, hence, are none other than being of 'one taste' in the wondrous field of LOVE!

Let me walk you along the path of peace and grace. 

Humanity cries out loud for help!
