Good Friday

Posted by The Open Page | 30th March 2018

What is good about Good Friday? Why isn't it called Bad Friday?
Because out of the appallingly bad came what was inexpressibly good.
And the good trumps the bad, because though the bad was temporary,
the good is eternal.

Best Wishes for Cheti Chand

Posted by The Open Page | 19th March 2018

 આપણા ભારતીય ધર્મગ્રંથોમાં કહેવાય છે કે જયારે ધરતી પર આત્યાચાર અને અધર્મ વધે છે, આસુરી વૃત્તિઓ માઝા મુકે છે અને માનવીય મૂલ્યોનો લોપ થાય છે ત્યારે ત્યારે ઈશ્વર કેરને કોઈ રૂપે પૃથ્વી પર અવતરિત થાયને ધર્મની રક્ષા કરે છે.
ભગવદ્ ગીતામાં પણ ભગવાન શ્રી કૃષ્ણે કહ્યું છે કે જયારે જયારે ધરતી પર ધર્મ દુર્લભ થાય છે અને અધર્મ સબળ બને છે ત્યારે હું ધર્મની રક્ષા માટે જન્મ લઉં છું. 
આવા જ એક ધર્મરક્ષક સર્વધર્મ સમભાવની લાગણી ને સમાજમાં ફેલાવવા અને ધર્મની રક્ષા કરવા ચિત્રમાસની બીજના દિવસે અવતરિત થયા તે ભગવાન ઝુલેલાલ. ભગવાન ઝુલ
