Harry Potter Pick Up Lines

I came across a few Harry Potter Pick Up lines on net a few days back ... Well I just loved them and what better than to post them in here :) so here are some of the best pick up lines I came across!


I'm not wearing an invisibility cloak, but do you think I could still visit your restricted section tonight?

If I were to look into the Mirror of Erised, I'd see the two of us together.

You don't need accio to make me come.

here, take my Remembrall. you'll need it for my name later.

that's not my Sneakoscope whistling in my pocket, if you know what I mean.

If I ever had to conjure a patronus, our time together is what I would think of.

My name may not be Luna, but I sure know how to Lovegood!

If you were a Dementor, I'd become a Death Eater just to get your kiss

Did you just use an 'obliviate' spell or are you naturally mind blowing?

You don't have to say Lumos to turn me on.

Are you using a stupefy spell or are you just naturally stunning?

Being without you is like being afflicted under the Cruciatus Curse.

Relationships ... My Take On It!

What is it that makes a relationship work? Love? Respect? Trust? I think its a bit of all even if one of the these things misses out the relationship is bound to go down the drain. But then how do you keep up to all these things together? Well love is taken care of already because had it not been for that the two of them would have never even come closer...

Respect on the other hand is what needs to build and to start with the fact that even in an argument you talk without insulting eachother. I don't see a point of getting back after insulting one another. I mean at one point of time you say the meanest things possible and then say baby I love you! Doesn't it sound stupid to you right now as you read it??? Imagine what the person will feel when the one they love says all meanest things to them and then after sometime comes and says I love you! I mean what sense does it make? A relationship works when no matter what they talk to each other in the same way with love in it and understanding. If one of them has started abusing the other or is talking all crappy things to other what guarantee there is that there won't come a day when things will lead to actual fights with slaps and hitting each other?

The other thing is trust.. And trust just doesn't come over night trust is to be built, to be strengthened over the time. If my partner knows where I am what I am doing and with who I am its obvious that the questions from his side will be less and with that I even need to show him that I love him and no one else. These days I hear reasons like I am busy with work that I don't get time with my loved ones. I don't get one thing you work so you have a good life and a great future with your wife/husband right? Then how come the reason you work doesn't get enough attention from you??? There are 24hours in a day and I think that way to enough if you really make an effort to do things on time and still get enough time to spend with your loved ones.

And most important is the two of them there is really no need of a third person between them to make decisions for them. When someone decides to be together and well just are sure that they want to spend the rest of the life with each other. I don't think there is any need for anyone to interfere in them. Let the two of them take on the course of life and decide what they want to do with themselves. Atleast if they go wrong they'll know it because of them and not someone else and esp here ill like to say the parents should not involve and make decisions for their kids.. Guidance yes! But a compulsion is not acceptable because that compulsion is gonna hurt one of the two and that one is gonna end up blaming the parents which is obviously dirty and it has to be avoided! If they are old enough to land a job and choose their life partner. I guess they are mature enough to even let the relationship survive without a third person interference.

Okay over and out!
PS - this is directly from my heart no checking no editing no backspace key no nothing. So if there are any mistakes please excuse! :)

Magic

What is that one thing which you believe in always? No matter what? Well for me its magic! Ever since I was a small girl I grew up within a fairy tale. Mom dad grandmom grandpa uncles everyone just sort of raised me in a fairy tale and with that somehow they even made me independent as well as confident. I am a type of a girl who can walk down the street at midnight without any fear and did anyone try any nonsense with me I know my way to get out of it... And along with that I was even taught of magic and belief and fairy tales and that I am their only princess who's every wish will come true and with that even learn how to make wishes come true.

Its sometimes difficult to decide how my childhood was or with exactly what type of atmosphere I was grown up in. Sometimes I think I was a spoilt child who always got what she wanted and still sometimes she got the worse punishments. I was raised with enough knowledge about love and affection which later helped me understand that if I have a boyfriend what exactly to look for in him. I had grown up watching a lovely couple madly in love with each other and I knew just then that this is what I want my kids to grow up watching.

Childhood is so very important in a person's life. I see people who even after becoming an adult are still called mama's boy or are still not able to take decisions for themselves or someone who just pretends to be all mama's boy to portray that he/she is such nice human beings. Well all I feel is sad for them. A right kind of teaching a parent can give according to me is when the child knows when to be independent when to take his/her own decision and when to follow their parent's steps.

A nice balance of traditional and modern values is what a person needs to be successful only one of either is not really gonna help!

It now occurs to me as I write down this post on my ramblings about childhood and a child's teaching. That I am glad I had the right pair of parents who made me all that I want my kids to be :) thank you mom and miss you dad!

Extract from "War and Peace"

Prince Andrei, who had carried the Russian flag in the attack against the French forces, lies wounded on the battlefield. He looks up at the blue sky: "Above him there was now only the sky -- the lofty sky, not clear yet still immeasurable lofty, with grey clouds creeping softly across it. 'How quiet, how peaceful and solemn! ... How was it I did not see that sky before? And how happy I am to have found it at last! Yes, all is vanity, all is delusion except these infinite heavens. There is nothing, nothing but that. But even it does not exist, there is nothing but peace and stillness...'"

Friday the 13th!

For a long time before now I always wondered what exactly was the big deal with the friday the 13th. As a kid I always connected it with some supernatural stuff maybe because I am a biggest fattu and I do believe that number 3 and 13 and unlucky for me, but I never really got a clear deal on why exactly Friday the 13th was so talked about and linked to all bad thing... So here is a extract from Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code where there is a mention of Friday the 13th .. Following is the whole extract :)


"The Priory of Sion," he began, " was founded in Jerusalem in 1099 by a frech king names Godefroi de Bouillion, immediately after he had conquered the city. King Godefroi was allegedly the possessor of a powerful secret -- a secret that had been in his family since the time of christ. Fearing his secret might be lost when he died, he founded a secret brotherhood -- The Priory of Sion -- and charged them with protecting his secrets by quietly passing it on from generation to generation. During their years In Jerusalem, the Priory learned of a stash of hidden documents buried beneath the ruins of Herod's Temple, which had been built atop the earlier ruins of Solomon's Temple. These documents they believed corroborated Godefroi's powerful secret and were so explosive in nature that the church would stop at nothing to get them.". "The Priory vowed that no matter how long it took, these documents must be recovered from the rubble beneath the temple and protected forever, so the truth would never die. In order to retrieve the documents from within the ruins the priory created a military arm -- a group of nine knights called the Order of the Poor Knights of Church and the Temple of Solomon." Langdon pause. " More commonly known as the Knight Templar."

Sophie looked troubled. "You're saying the Knight Templars were founded by the Priory of Sion to retrieve a collection of secret documents? I thought the Templars were created to protect the Holy Land."

"A common misconception. The idea of protection of pilgrims was the guise under which the templars ran their mission. Their true goal in the Holy Land was to retrieve the documents from beneath the ruins of the temple."

"And did they find them?"

Langdon grinned."Nobody knows for sure, but the one things on which all academics agree is this : The Knights discovered something down there in the ruins... Something that made them wealthy and powerful beyond anyone's wildest imagination"

Langdon quickly gave Sophie standard academic sketch of the accepted Knights Templar history, explaining how the Knights were in the Holy Lan during the Second Crusade and told King Baldwin II that they were there to protect christian pilgrims on the roadways. Although unpaid and sworn to poverty, the knights told the king they required basic shelter and requested his permission to take up residence in the stable under the ruins of the temple. King Baldwin granted the soldiers request, and the Knights took up their meager residence inside the devastated shrine.

The odd choice of lodging, langdon explained, had been anything but random. The knights believed the documents the Priory sought were buried deep under the ruins -- beneath the Holy of Holies, a sacred chamber where God himself was believed to reside. Literally the very center of the Jewish faith. For almost a decade, the nine Knights lived in the ruins, excavating in total secrecy through solid rock.

Sophie looked over."And you said they discovered something?"

"They certainly did," langdon said, explaining how it had taken nine years but the knights had finally found what they had been searching for. They took the treasure from temple and traveled to Europe, where their influence seemed to solidify overnight.

Nobody was certain whether the Knights had Blackmailed the Vatican or weather the church simply tried to buy the Knights' silence, but Pope Innocent II immediately issued an unprecedented papal bull that afforded the Knight Templar limitless power and declared them "a law unto themselves" -- an autonomous army independent of all interference from kings and prelates, both religions and political.

With their new carte blanche from the vatican, the Knights Templars expanded at a staggering rate, both in numbers and political force, amassing vast estates in over a dozen countries. They began extending credit to bankrupt royals and charging interests in return, thereby establishing modern banking and broadening their wealth and influence still further.

By the 1300s, the Vatican sanction had helped the Knights amass so much power that Pope Clement V decided that something had to be done. Working in concert with France's King Philippe IV, the Pope devised an ingeniously planned sting operation to quash the Templars and seize their treasure, thus taking control of the secrets held over the Vatican. In a military maneuver worthy of the CIA, Pope Clement issued secret sealed orders to be opened simultaneously by his soldiers all across the Europe on Friday, October 13 of 1307.

At the dawn on the thirteenth, the documents were unsealed and their appalling contents revealed. Clement's letter claimed that God had visited him in a vision and warned him that the Knights Templar were heretics guilty of devil worship, homosexuality, de filing the cross, sodomy, and other blasphemous behaviour. Pope Clement had been asked by God to cleanse the eath by rounding up all the Knights and torturing them until they confessed their crimes against God. Clement's Machiavellian operation came off with clockwork precision. On that day, Countless Knights were captured tortured mercilessly and finally burned at the stake as heretics. Echoes of the tragedy still resonate in modern culture; to this day, Friday the thirteenth was considered unlucky.

The Kid!

Have you seen charlie chaplin's The Kid? Awesome movie isn't it? Apart from the comic part the best part of the movie is the love and affection between charlie and the kid. Towards the end it just gets tears in your eyes and that's some kind of love and affection I want with my kid. One of the things on my to-do list with my child is watch the kid with me baby holding his/her hand and by the end of it I want the same chemistry and affection between me and my child!

Its a wonderful feeling watching a child grow up right? Right from the first knowledge that he is inside you growing day by day and then the bump you get then the way you feel him inside you then they way everything you do and everything you eat is all about him and his future and his health. The most important thing that helps is how the love between the couple grows how he starts taking care of her all the time. Those walks they go on to walk slowly slowly holding hands. How he will start taking care of all her mood swings and her cravings which will grows with the pregnancy months.

And soon the baby comes in a little angel. Cute little baby! And then the house is full of all baby things blue for the boy and pink for the girl. Then planning the nursery their toys, their clothes, baby food and nappies. Soon the walkers will come the first time the baby will say mommy and pappa such a beautiful idea such a beautiful moment will that be...

Then a time will come when he/she will go to play school then school. Will come home and show the star his teacher will give. And ill congratulate him with a bar of chocolate. Then when his daddy will come home tired from office he will run to him and hug him and all tiredness will go in a moment. So while he and daddy is playing ill serve food and all of us will eat together. What a wonderful life that will be...

Jab They Met - Ends

She had never thought things will change with such a twist and turn... He had told her he will always stand by her and love her. It all had started with the love and then it was only love from her side while it was all cheating and lies from his side. Its 3yrs now and what she gets to know is his parents interfering way too much in their life and make them breakup. And that he had always kept things hidden from her many things to be specific. And now that they have broken up he is enjoying and she is going miserable. Honestly what to do of these guys is breakup what they deserve for just ruining someone life for ever? There have been many more things that happened when they were together one of them being an abortion!!! And now its over just like that is this right? When someone says that he or she loves the other person is it merely an expression these days?
What she thought was that their love was true not like the once of those stupid flings that keep happening these days. And what she gets is this?? Is this fair? Really? She is miserable cause of him and what about him? Just fool around?
What's happening these days!

Just For A Laugh!!!

How do you expect kids to listen to their parents? Tarzan lives half-naked, Cinderella comes back home after midnight, Pinocchio lies all the time, Aladdin is the king of thieves, Batman drives at 198 miles per hour, Sleeping Beauty is lazy, and Snow White lives with 7 guys. We shouldn't be surprised when kids misbehave! They get it from their story books...

Nam Myoho Renge Kyo .... Meaning

I have been practicing Nichiren Daishonin's buddhism for 4 months now (I know very less time) but the wonders it doing to my life is amazing ... Many a times people ask me what it is all about and how does chanting help me and what does Nam Myoho Renge Kyo mean ... So here goes the meaning :)

Nam Myoho Renge Kyo is a mantra that is chanted by the followers on Nichiren Daishonin buddhism. The mantra is referred as Daimoku and was first revealed by Nichiren Daishonin on the 28th April 1253 in japan. The mantra is written in the centre of the Gohonzon, the mandala. Shakyamuni Buddha expounded 80,000 teachings of which after studying all, Nichiren daishonin realized and came to a conclusion that MYOHO RENGE KYO - the title of the Lotus sutra is the most superior of all and hence appended the word NAM at the start which means .....

NAM :-
Nam comes from a Sanskrit word which means respect or dedication. So the phrase Nam Myoho Renge Kyo means devotion to the mystic law of the Lotus Sutra.

Nam is an action word that turns this principle from theory to reality. It also means to fuse our lives with an external truth of Myoho Renge Kyo and through this fusion, it enables us to draw forth wisdom from within ourselves in response to our daily lives.

It encapsulates both action we need to take and the attitude we need to develop if we are to attain buddhahood in this lifetime.

Its an expression of the middle way, encompassing and transcending both religious and secular aspects of devotion.


MYOHO:-
Nichiren Daishonin explains that 'Myo' is the name given to the mystic nature of life, and 'ho' its manifestation. In other words, while 'myo' refers to the essence of life itself which is unseen and beyond intellectual understanding, this essence always expresses itself in tangible form, one that van be understood by our senses.

For example:- if we were to consider that music is 'myo' its almost impossible to explain why it moves us i.e the sounds of the notes and their effect on our emotion can be felt and therefore are 'ho'

Taking another example, myo refers to the state of buddhahood, while ho refers to the 9worlds from hell to boddhisattva

On one level, this means that out buddha nature is not separate from the nine other worlds we all possess and that it can only be expressed through them. On another level, myo represents our full potential while ho stands for how much of that potential we have achieved.

Nichiren Daishonin explains that, as everyone posseses buddhahood, the potential of each individual is literally limitless. Thus just having great potential is no good to anybody, if it simple remains dormant in our lives. For instance, we cannot improve the quality of our loves and that of others unless we are able to turn our potential into reality and manifest it everyday in society.


RENGE:-
Renge means the Lotus Flower which grows and blossoms in a muddy pond and yet remains pure from defilement. Since it produces seeds and flowers at the same time, it signifies the law of cause and effect.

The circumstances and quality of out individual lives are determined by the causes and effects both good and bad, that we accumulate (through our thoughts, words and actions) at each moment. This is called our "Karma."

The law of cause and effect explains that we each have personal responsibility for our own destiny. We create our destiny and we can change it. The most powerful cause we can make. Is to chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo; and the effect of Buddhahood is simultaneously created in the depths of our life and will definitely manifest in time.


KYO:-
Kyo means sutra, the voice or teaching of the Buddha. It also means sound, rhythm or vibration.

When we talk of Vibration, which is so important in our practice, as we say the voice does the Buddha's work and that's why we recite the sutra aloud than doing it silently.

Also the chinese character KYO originally meant "the wrap in a piece of a woven cloth" symbolizes the unchanging and continuity of life throughout past present and future.

Nicherin associated the characters Nam Myoho Renge Kyo with the parts of human body to HEAD, THROAT, CHEST, ABDOMEN and LEGS respectively indicating that the mystic law is in no way separate from the realities of our lives

In a more broad sense, KYO conveys tje concept that all things in the universe are a manifestation of the mystic law and how our prayets or the sound of our chanting can affect people and situation around us.

So the literal meaning of Nam Myoho Renge Kyo does not mean to devote oneself just to the practice of Buddhism but rather to life as a whole.
