Faith vs Beliefs - Which is more important?

Confusion reigns when each belief is shattered one by one. Belief, they say, is genetic (प्रारब्ध कर्मा). You don't get to choose your earliest beliefs. They are fed to you even before you learn your alphabets.



Depending upon your early influencers, the belief turns into faith. Or the belief fades into the time.

Faith is again, individualized. It differs per individual. Faith can also be a result of varied beliefs backed with experience of own.

Some people change their faith by evaluating the "returns". There was this person who wanted to understand "phala shruti" (rewards?) of some hymn before he'd sing it. So much bargaining in the name of beliefs.

But beliefs don't last. Most of them are just our minds playing games. Faith has a longer life compared to beliefs. And your faith is much powerful than any of your beliefs.

There will be times when you'll see many of your beliefs, that you held close to your heart, start breaking. That's when confusion sets in and you'll feel lost. If anything (other than God) can keep you sane during that turmoil, it is your faith.

What I am trying to say is beliefs are not that important because they keep on changing as you learn more. But having faith is essential for survival. Mostly, it is the faith in God that keeps people going but it can also be faith in own self & own knowledge.

In short, keep the faith. That's your only weapon when beliefs break or fade out. You might hold a belief for long before it suddenly disappears. You may become miserable...how can it be wrong! In such scenarios and more, it is your faith that gives you reassurance & reasons to continue wherever you are headed.

Let me know if you understood the above because I am too confused right now and I need someone to explain it to me. But I think I got the answer in a broader sense. Thank you, whoever/whatever you are. 👍

Best app for Android phones - Clean Master from Cheetah Mobile

After five years of testing different multipurpose apps for Android maintenance, I realize Clean Master from Cheetah Mobile is the best maintenance app for Android phones. Not only maintenance, Clean Master offers you much more than you can expect from a single app.

For a while, it felt the "All in One for Android" is good. But turned out it leaves out add-ins even after you remove it. What is available in single code in Clean Master of Cheetah Mobile, is available as add-ins in All in One app for Android. When you uninstall All in One app, the add-ins continue to run in RAM. I could not find any method to remove them as they were not visible in any App Managers. I had to do a factory reset and that was when my doubts were removed and I acknowledged Clean Master of Cheetah Mobile is the best option for Android phones.

Analysis of Mahabharata Characters - Bhishma

Bhishma is one of the powerful characters of the epic, Mahabharata that contains and shows a pious way of life to the mortals living on earth. I am starting this Analysis of Mahabharata Characters with Bhishma as he is the oldest character in the epic/saga and has tremendous influence on the other characters of Mahabharata. Bhishma was the son of king Shantanu and Ganga (the river Ganges in female form). Bhishma was considered one of the eight Vasus (rishis) who had to take birth on earth due to a curse. Before we analyze the character, let us take a quick look at the story of Bhishma according to the Mahabharata.
Background Of Bhishma Bhismha is considered one of the eight Vasus who stole a cow named Kamadhenu from a sage. When the sage cursed them to take birth as humans, all Vasus asked for his forgiveness. The sage, for seven Vasus who helped the main Vasu to steal the cow, reduced the curse to death just after birth. However, the main Vasu who actually stole the cow was to stay …

Smart Artificial Intelligence Dangers - What is Musk doing?

🛰When Stephen Hawkings said human race has the biggest threat from its own scientists, he was not totally wrong.
Elon Musk, of Tesla Motors, is going a bit too far with his science obsession. I can understand electric cars & Hyperloop transportation. I can also understand with his space ferrying plans where he has proposed to ferry people to the moon and back. Was it a space elevator? I can't recall.
Anyway, his team dealing with artificial intelligence has found that their machines have developed their own language for communicating with each other.
This is scary, because even animals on this planet can make certain sounds only, to express their feelings. None other than the humans have a full set of words that can be used for anything. And it is not restricted to few sounds with varying pitch. It is a whole complicated language.
Now Musk's team working on artificial intelligence says it has discovered that the machines in their experimental network, are using differen…
