Neurosis Revisited

ਮਨ ਮੈਂਡਾ ਕਾਸਾ ਏ
ਮਾਹੀਏ ਦੇ ਵਸਲ ਬਾਝੋਂ

ਹਰ ਜੁਗ ਬੇਆਸਾ ਏ

  1. its only when ur 'kassa' break , u can see beyond.

  2. But you can also see beyond when your 'Kaasa' overflows.

  3. yes u can(i think so too) but 'kassa' become ur prism. u see through it.and hense may be one cannot see the all.

  4. Hi,

    I think about these posts as follows:
    "Kassa" word has been used as metaphor in the posts 'Neurosis Revisited' and 'By anonymou(S.)'But not in the case of 'An interpretation of Neurosis'
    Acc. to Science, Neurosis is the psychological condition involving the persistent experiences of the effects like depression,anxiety,sadness etc.

    About post:'An interpretation of Neurosis'
    The picture has filled with full of grief.Mahiya completely justifies the described situation in picture.The mind trembles and the heart sinks.Now is the situation when one thinks about life with broken hearts.(u cant see beyond)
    About post:'Neurosis Revisited'
    In both mahiyas,one is under the same condition'Neurosis.'
    But see this picture,one seeks the union with his trueself.Here the faith comes.Under the grace of God,the Kassa overflows with innocent pleasure and euphoria.
    Now it doesnt matter,one can see beyond or one can see through.

  5. Kaasa is a wooden or earthen bowl which was used by medieval faqirs to ask for alms. Its symbolic meanings are that when you translate your whole being in prayer and stood naked before God, only then you become capable of receiving from Him.

  6. thank you...

    oh and what's vassal? (offering?)


  7. oops I meant alms not offering.

    is vassal = alms?


  8. No Satvinder,

    Vasal is not offring.

    It means union, spiritual union. This word has a very special status in punjabi literature as it is i.e. vasal is considered as the highest end of human life.

    Some times it is also used in profane meanings without any reference to spirituality, but its meaning are always same.

  9. oh! thankie... the verse makes sense to me now.
