    eench vor puhrtehs ahmanut, Free Craps Game Online, ehn ehl goukah pehrahnut - what you put on your plate, Free Craps Game Online, will go in your mouth (literally - what you crumble on your plate will end up in your mouth)

    This proverb indicates the responsibility one accrues for his own acts. Free Craps Game Online, The consequences of one’s own acts is an important theme in eastern and western philosophy. Free Craps Game Online, God endows us with the facility of limited free will. Free Craps Game Online, We are never independent of God, Free Craps Game Online, but God does not predetermine our destiny or future. Free Craps Game Online, What happens to us in the future is a result of our own actions either good or bad or mixed. Free Craps Game Online, Whatever we sow, Free Craps Game Online, we shall reap. Free Craps Game Online, (eench vor tzahnes, Free Craps Game Online, aiyn guh hntzehs) This is expressed with a slight variation in the Armenian proverb, Free Craps Game Online, puhchadzut tuhkalut bidee kah - what you blow away shall come back into your spoon. Free Craps Game Online,

    Another Armenian proverb expresses this same point more forcefully, Free Craps Game Online, yehpadz ahbourut gehr heemah - You made the soup, Free Craps Game Online, so eat it now. Free Craps Game Online, The laws of nature as established by God hold us always responsible for our acts unless we are released from such implacable laws by the mercy of God.

    Sometimes people work very hard and have very little to show for it. Free Craps Game Online, (oujegh ahskahdetz, Free Craps Game Online, ahnoti pohrov bargetz - he worked so hard, Free Craps Game Online, but went to bed on an empty stomach) This is the result of their destiny as determined by their previous acts in this life and previous lives. Free Craps Game Online, Whatever we sow, Free Craps Game Online, we shall reap. Free Craps Game Online, (eench vor tzahnes, Free Craps Game Online, aiyn guh hntzehs) Some people work hard their whole lives and are hardly able to make ends meet. Free Craps Game Online, Others are born with a golden spoon in their mouth and go through life enjoying opulence without working hard. Free Craps Game Online, Happiness and distress are predetermined by destiny or our previous acts.

    Man is always subject to God’s will. Free Craps Game Online, God gives man codes of good behavior (10 commandments) and encourages him to follow them with the understanding that transgressions to the laws will bring consequences. Free Craps Game Online, Armenian proverbs point this out.

    tahdastan gah kahloust, Free Craps Game Online, bahdasghan gah dahloust
    Judgement day will come, Free Craps Game Online, you will be held accountable (answerable to God)

    ahnmehn mahrtou ahradzuh eehr ahchehvuh gehrtah
    Every man’s deeds walk in front of him

    The wisdom put forward by the Armenian spirit is

    muhnehr ahnohrehn, Free Craps Game Online, guh kudnahs yehrgnahvorehn -
    Do no wrong, Free Craps Game Online, God will pay you before long. Free Craps Game Online,

    Eench vor uhnehs, Free Craps Game Online, ahyit guh kutnehs
    What action you perform, Free Craps Game Online, that (its result) you will find

    Man is responsible for his actions in life. Free Craps Game Online, If he does good, Free Craps Game Online, he will find good, Free Craps Game Online, if he does bad, Free Craps Game Online, he will find bad. Free Craps Game Online, The result he gets, Free Craps Game Online, either good or bad, Free Craps Game Online, entangles him to act again and the cycle continues unending until he is fed up with self-interested activity and decides to hear about the path of liberation through unselfish acts for the unique pleasure of God.

    kuhrvadzuh cahvreer, Free Craps Game Online, chee kuhrvadzuh yerpeck chee gahdahvreer
    What is written will never be destroyed and what is not written
    will never take place

    There is a book of records of every person’s past deeds and future destiny. Free Craps Game Online, If a future event is written in the book, Free Craps Game Online, it cannot be erased or changed. Free Craps Game Online, Similarly, Free Craps Game Online, if a future event is not written in the book, Free Craps Game Online, it will not happen according to this proverb because destiny is predetermined. Free Craps Game Online, This is not an endorsed Christian concept. Free Craps Game Online, It is coming from a very ancient pre-Christian past. Free Craps Game Online, In Armenian folk belief there is the concept of jahgahdakeer, Free Craps Game Online, which means what is written on one’s forehead is destined to take place. Free Craps Game Online, In other words, Free Craps Game Online, it means that one’s destiny is written on the forehead or pre-determined. Free Craps Game Online, In Turkish, Free Craps Game Online, it is called “alin yazuhsuhn” which means what is written on your forehead will happen. Free Craps Game Online,

    In Islamic belief, Free Craps Game Online, during judgment, Free Craps Game Online, a person’s own “book of deeds” will be shown, Free Craps Game Online, and the person will be apprised of every deed and every word one spoke (Qur’an 54.52-53). Free Craps Game Online, If given in the right hand, Free Craps Game Online, that Person will go to Jannah (paradise). Free Craps Game Online, If he gets it in his left, Free Craps Game Online, he’s going to Jahannam (Hell). Free Craps Game Online, Actions during childhood are not judged. Free Craps Game Online, Even minor and trivial deeds are included in the account.

    There is an interesting story that illustrates this idea of “what is written on the forehead will happen.”
    It is narrated by the personality of death. Free Craps Game Online, “There was a merchant in Baghdad who sent his servant to the marketplace to buy provisions. Free Craps Game Online, After a short while, Free Craps Game Online, the servant came back to his master, Free Craps Game Online, white and trembling, Free Craps Game Online, and said, Free Craps Game Online, “Sir, Free Craps Game Online, while I was in the market-place, Free Craps Game Online, I was jostled by a woman in the crowd and when I turned I saw it was Death personified. Free Craps Game Online, She looked at me and gave me a menacing glance. Free Craps Game Online, Please lend me your horse. Free Craps Game Online, I will ride away from this city and avoid my fate. Free Craps Game Online, My plan is ride as quick as possible to Samarra and hide so that Death will not find me.”

    The merchant lent him his horse, Free Craps Game Online, and the servant mounted it. Free Craps Game Online, He dug his spurs in the horse’s flanks so that the horse galloped as fast as it could. Free Craps Game Online, The merchant went down to the marketplace. Free Craps Game Online, He noticed Death standing in the crowd and he came to me and said, Free Craps Game Online, “Why did you make a threatening gesture to my servant when you saw him this morning?”

    “That was not a threatening gesture, Free Craps Game Online,” I said, Free Craps Game Online, “it was only my expression of surprise. Free Craps Game Online, I was astonished to see him in Baghdad, Free Craps Game Online, for I had an appointment with him tonight in Samarra.”

    Similarly, Free Craps Game Online, there was a man in India who wanted to avoid death. Free Craps Game Online, The agent of death is called Yamaraj. Free Craps Game Online, He comes to extract the soul of man from his dying body at the moment of death so that the person can be judged according to his deeds. Free Craps Game Online, This man reasoned that Yamaraj is a first class brahmin (a priestly servant of God) and that brahmins never touch human or animal stools. Free Craps Game Online, Therefore, Free Craps Game Online, the man smeared his own excrement all over his body thinking that as long as his body is covered in feces, Free Craps Game Online, Yamaraj would not touch him for fear of violating brahminical principles. Free Craps Game Online,

    This is an example of being over intelligent or foolish. Free Craps Game Online, Yamaraj is always accompanied by his assistants
    called the Yamaduttas who can easily grab someone regardless of their physical condition whether clean or unclean. Free Craps Game Online,

    douh kouh ouzahzut ouzee, Free Craps Game Online, dehss paghdut eench ouzee
    You desire what you want, Free Craps Game Online, but you will see what your destiny wants (or will give you)

    There is a beautiful short story written by Hovhaness Toumanian that illustrates this wisdom. Free Craps Game Online, The story is entitled, Free Craps Game Online, “The Jar of Gold.”

    “I have heard from our elders, Free Craps Game Online, who heard from their revered fathers, Free Craps Game Online, who heard from their holy wise men that once upon a time there was a poor farmer who had a small plot of land and two bulls.

    During a difficult winter, Free Craps Game Online, his two bulls died. Free Craps Game Online, When spring came, Free Craps Game Online, it was time to plant the fields but he didn’t have his oxen to plow the earth. Free Craps Game Online, He decided to rent his small plot to a neighbor.

    When the neighbor plowed the field, Free Craps Game Online, his plow struck something that obstructed its forward motion. Free Craps Game Online, A large clay pot was unearthed and it contained a considerable amount of gold coins. Free Craps Game Online, The renter tied his oxen securely to a stake and ran as quick as he could to the village to his landlord.

    Hey, Free Craps Game Online, May your eyes light up, Free Craps Game Online, said the renter neighbor, Free Craps Game Online, I unearthed a large clay pot full of gold that was buried in your farmland, Free Craps Game Online, come and fetch it.

    No way brother, Free Craps Game Online, it doesn’t belong to me said the landlord. Free Craps Game Online, You have paid me rent money, Free Craps Game Online, you plowed the land, Free Craps Game Online, so whatever comes out of that land is yours. Free Craps Game Online, If gold came out of the land, Free Craps Game Online, so be it, Free Craps Game Online, it belongs to you.

    The two villagers began to argue. Free Craps Game Online, One said, Free Craps Game Online, it is yours, Free Craps Game Online, and the other, Free Craps Game Online, No, Free Craps Game Online, it is yours. Free Craps Game Online, The discussion heated up and finally they came to blows. Free Craps Game Online, They went to the king to complain against each other.

    As soon as the king heard that there was a large clay pot of gold, Free Craps Game Online, his eyes became wide open and he said, Free Craps Game Online, it is neither yours nor his. Free Craps Game Online, This is my kingdom, Free Craps Game Online, therefore the pot of gold belongs to me.

    The king left with an group of his men to the field to bring back the pot of gold. Free Craps Game Online, They reached the field and found the pot. Free Craps Game Online, He ordered his men to open the lid. Free Craps Game Online, They were all shocked to see that the pot was not filled with gold, Free Craps Game Online, but with poisonous snakes.

    The king became wild with fury and rushed back to the palace. Free Craps Game Online, He ordered the two villagers to be punished for trying to mislead him into a life threatening trap.

    May the king live long, Free Craps Game Online, please spare us, Free Craps Game Online, we never meant to mislead you. Free Craps Game Online, Why condemn us to death. Free Craps Game Online, We’ll prove to you that you made a mistake of perception. Free Craps Game Online, There are no snakes in the pot. Free Craps Game Online, There is only gold, Free Craps Game Online, pure gold.

    The king ordered his men to go back and examine the pot again. Free Craps Game Online, The men went and came back quickly. Free Craps Game Online, They swore that they saw only gold in the pot.

    Oh my god, Free Craps Game Online, said the king, Free Craps Game Online, shocked and perturbed, Free Craps Game Online, I must not have looked carefully or I examined the wrong pot. Free Craps Game Online, He quickly got up and went again to the field.

    He opened the pot and again saw it was full of snakes.

    What kind of magic is this. Free Craps Game Online, I really do not understand. Free Craps Game Online, There is some hidden meaning to this phenomena. Free Craps Game Online,

    The king issued a royal decree that all the most expert wise men of the kingdom come immediately to his palace from the four corners of his kingdom.

    Honored sages, Free Craps Game Online, said the king, Free Craps Game Online, please explain for me what is the nature of this strange event. Free Craps Game Online, These two villagers found a pot of gold in their field. Free Craps Game Online, When I went to observe myself, Free Craps Game Online, I was shocked to see the pot full of poisonous snakes. Free Craps Game Online, When I sent my men to see a second time, Free Craps Game Online, they only saw it full of gold as the two villagers said. Free Craps Game Online, What is the meaning of this strange event.

    The sages answered in a solemn tone, Free Craps Game Online, we can explain this extraordinary affair if you promise not to get angry with us. Free Craps Game Online, The pot of clay filled with gold is a blessing that was given to these two poor farmers because they have worked honestly and honorably. Free Craps Game Online, When they opened the pot they saw their just wages and had the right to collect the fruit of their virtuous work. Free Craps Game Online, But when you went, Free Craps Game Online, your purpose was to usurp their good fortune. Free Craps Game Online, Because of this ignoble attempt on your part, Free Craps Game Online, you saw poisonous snakes instead of precious gold.

    The king was shocked into silence for a moment. Free Craps Game Online, He gathered his thoughts and spoke.

    Very well, Free Craps Game Online, he said. Free Craps Game Online, But now you must decide which one of these villagers has the right to claim the gold treasure. Free Craps Game Online,

    For sure, Free Craps Game Online, it is my landlord, Free Craps Game Online, said the renter.
    Not at all, Free Craps Game Online, said the landlord emphatically. Free Craps Game Online, The two villagers began to quarrel like cats and dogs again.

    That’s enough, Free Craps Game Online, said the wise men. Free Craps Game Online, Now tell us how many children you have and whether they are boys or girls.

    One villager had a boy and the other a girl.

    The wise men decided that the villagers arrange a marriage of the boy and girl and gift the new couple the pot of gold. Free Craps Game Online, The two villagers accepted this decision and became very happy that the wise men made such a auspicious resolution of their dispute. Free Craps Game Online, They stopped fighting and made preparations for the wedding.

    The wedding ceremonies and joyful festivities lasted for seven days and seven nights. Free Craps Game Online, The pot of gold which was a blessing for the honest and virtuous work of the two villagers was given to their newly married children.

    May goodness stay always with virtuous people, Free Craps Game Online, and misfortune teach the greedy king to change his ways.”

    Hovhaness Toumanian was certainly, Free Craps Game Online, in my opinion, Free Craps Game Online, the one Armenian writer who captured the quintessence of the Armenian villagers’ virtuous and noble spirit. Free Craps Game Online, He was a master storyteller, Free Craps Game Online, poet, Free Craps Game Online, writer and voice of the common Armenian people.

    Good deeds and attitudes of goodness are emphasized as the best standard for human behavior and worthy of God’s favorable reward. Free Craps Game Online, The opposite is implied. Free Craps Game Online, Bad deeds will engender bad results. Free Craps Game Online,

    The Armenian wisdom goes further insisting on the merit of doing good even in the face of evil.

    lahvoutioun lahvoutioun ahnmehn mahrtou pahnuneh, Free Craps Game Online,
    vahdoutiouneen lahvoutioun, Free Craps Game Online, mahrt mahrtoun panuneh

    Return in kind good for good, Free Craps Game Online, everyone can do
    Return good for evil, Free Craps Game Online, only the exceptional man can do

    God as the ultimate witness of everything we do. Free Craps Game Online, He will favorably look upon the humble person who acts with virtue, Free Craps Game Online, honesty and honor.

    lahvoutioun uhreh, Free Craps Game Online, chouruh nehdeh, Free Craps Game Online, tzouguh chee dehsneh, Free Craps Game Online, ahstvadtz guh teedeh

    Do a good deed and throw it in the water, Free Craps Game Online, if the fish don’t see it, Free Craps Game Online, God will. Free Craps Game Online, This proverb reassures the humble person that there is ultimate justice with God who never forsakes his sincere servant. Free Craps Game Online, Even though, Free Craps Game Online, others may ignore the good deeds one does, Free Craps Game Online, God never forgets such actions.

    The theme of goodness engendering goodness is heard in the proverb, Free Craps Game Online,
    lahvoutioun ahrah, Free Craps Game Online, chouruh tzkeer, Free Craps Game Online, tehmut gehlnee - do a good deed and throw it in the water, Free Craps Game Online, it will appear before you again. Free Craps Game Online, There is a value in doing good deeds for they will return to you in kind.

    A favorite Armenian proverb of mine is the following

    eench dahs hokout, Free Craps Game Online, aiyn gehrtah ahrevout - what you give (or do) for your soul, Free Craps Game Online, goes to your sun (meaning it benefits your life). Free Craps Game Online,

    The sun is the source of light and sustains life in the universe by its warmth and unending life giving energy. Free Craps Game Online, Therefore, Free Craps Game Online, it is used in the Armenian folk language as a metaphor for “life.”

    One who disregards God’s exhortation to do good and plots evil will end up with dire consequences. Free Craps Game Online,

    ouhrisheen hahmar pohss pohroghuh, Free Craps Game Online, eenkuh metchuh geenah
    Who digs a pit for another will fall into it himself

    People suffer or enjoy based on the choices they make in their lives. Free Craps Game Online, Overindulgence is a frequent cause of unhappiness and sickness. Free Craps Game Online,

    sahd kahtzuhr kahtzuhr guh guhllehn, Free Craps Game Online, ahveli tahrun tahrun guh pughtzehn - the more sweets sweets they eat, Free Craps Game Online, more bitter bitter they throw up. Free Craps Game Online, Another version of this proverb with a slight twist is kahtzuhr hahmegh ouhntounetz, Free Craps Game Online, tahrun touynuh hehd dvehtz - he ate delicious sweets, Free Craps Game Online, but vomited bitter poison. Free Craps Game Online,

    Happiness and distress in this life are predetermined by our acts in this life and previous lives. Free Craps Game Online, However, Free Craps Game Online, our ability to surrender to the will of God is not predetermined. Free Craps Game Online, We are free at any moment to surrender to God and immediately the weight of our destiny will be put on hold to give us a chance to advance spiritually and gradually clean the slate of our previous deeds. Free Craps Game Online,

    When Jesus saved the prostitute from being stoned to death, Free Craps Game Online, we are witness to the immediate change of destiny by the Son of God who intervenes to save her life. Free Craps Game Online, Then Jesus blessed her to forsake the life of sin and take up the holy life.

    There are other interesting proverbs with an edge such as
    eench tzangahs eenzee, Free Craps Game Online, ahstuhvadz tzangah kehzee - whatever you wish for me, Free Craps Game Online, may God wish (the same) for you.
