    Guru, the Self by Guru Nithya Chaithanya Yati

    Physical perception is a perception in contrast; a contrast of light and shadow. All objects of perception are finite bodies, illuminated by light. Where there is only pure light, and nothing illuminated by it, there is no physical perception. The Guru is pure light. For the physical eye to see, objects need to be illuminated with light, and there also has to be a light within that animates the eye and which

    The two orbs of the intellect by Sri Aurobindo

    The intellect is an organ composed of several groups of functions, divisible into two important classes, the functions and faculties of the right hand and the functions and faculties of the left hand.

    Amavasya, Journey from untruth to truth by Sadhguru, Isha Foundation

    Amavasya means no moon day or new moon day. Whenever something or somebody becomes absent, through that absence, her presence always becomes more powerful. On any other day, even the Pournami, she is there, but on Amavasya, the presence is felt even more – that quality is even more.

  • good-governance

    Lead by example by Rajyogi Brahmakumar Nikunj ji

    Good governance is not an alien concept for a country like India, as even today Ram Rajya connotes the highest achievable level of good governance. We must understand a fact that  good governance is impossible without statesmen who function according to dharma and spirituality.

    The true teacher – The Mother, Sri Aurobindo Ashram

    The teacher should not be a book that is read aloud, the same for everyone, no matter what his nature and character. The first duty of the teacher is to help the student to know himself and to discover what he is capable of doing. For that one must observe his games, the activities to which he is drawn naturally and spontaneously and also what he likes to learn, whether his intelligence is awake,

  • bhagavad-gita

    Why was the Gita taught on the battlefield? by Swami Sivananda

    THERE was some purpose in the Lord’s choosing the battlefield for the Gita teaching. Yes. He wanted to point out to us that wisdom should not recline in an armchair. If his wisdom did not accompany a man to the field of battle, it was no wisdom at all! Any man could talk philosophy “after dinner”; any man could discourse upon the most intricate points in the Yoga Shastras sitting comfortably near the fireplace.

  • perfection

    Perfection by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

    When we are joyful, we do not look for perfection. If you are looking for perfection then you are not at the source of joy. Joy is the realization that there is no vacation from wisdom. The world appears imperfect on the surface but underneath, all is perfect. Perfection hides; imperfection shows off.

    WHENEVER anyone harms us, instead of getting angry we should try to see that person as a Spiritual Teacher and generate a mind of gratitude towards him or her. There are various lines of reasoning we can use to develop this special recognition.

  • self-discipline

    Self-Discipline by Steve Pavlina

    SELF-DISCIPLINE is the ability to get yourself to take action regardless of your emotional state. Just as everyone has different muscular strength, we all possess different levels of self-discipline. Everyone has some — if you can hold your breath a few seconds, you have some self-discipline. But not everyone has developed their discipline to the same degree.
