  • What path should one follow in spirituality

    The Spirit of Indian Spirituality- Sri Aurobindo

    ‘Spirituality is indeed the master-key of the Indian mind; the sense of the infinite is native to it.

    Guiding Light: The Changing World

    You can be at ease with the uncertainty of the world when you realize the certainty of consciousness. Often people do just the opposite. They are certain about the world and uncertain about God. They rely on something that is not reliable and get upset. Uncertainty causes craving for stability and the most stable thing in the universe is our Self.

  • Unconscious decisions are usually unhealthy decisions

    Suppose we suddenly feel hungry. We might have nearby some snacks – some fatty, some non-fatty. If we consciously contemplate what we are doing, we will remember our resolve to lose weight. Of course, even after we remember our resolve, we may still have to battle the temptation to take the fatty snack. But if we don’t even realise that our hand has gone to that snack and placed it in our

  • Tolerance means to call off our war with reality

    Tolerance is sometimes equated with weakness and passivity. But it is actually the basis for strength and dynamism.

  • Dwarka – Spirituality by the sea…

    On the map it looks like a little finger of land jutting out into the sea, with a narrow road leading almost to the tip of the finger at Okha on the West coast of Gujarat, the gateway to reach Bet Dwarka. The last bit runs parallel to the sea and was packed with colourfully-painted boats with little flags fluttering in the wind.

  • Spirituality For Peace & Harmony

    The aim of every religion is to make a person pious and a good citizen. But as time passed, every religion degenerated. So, it would be wrong to condemn all religions or to reject everything in any one religion. However, if any religion instigates its followers against others or gives its votaries some kind of frenzy and makes much zealots who would pull out swords against followers of other faiths, then that

    Core of All Religions

    Currently a large number of people across the world identify themselves as SBNR i.e spiritual but not religious. The term might be new to Indians , but fresh research shows that perhaps one in every five persons living in USA describe themselves as spiritual but not religious.

Further, I shall compile a book and map everything by latitude and longitude. These things will

  • Sri Sri Ravi Shankar – PRAISE

    Often when you praise, you praise in comparison to someone else. In order to praise one person, we put down someone else and when we want to point out someone’s mistake, we praise another.

    A Sathsang Is An Opportunity

    Sathsang literally means “to commune with truth.” “Sath” means “truth” and “sang” means “to commune with it” or “to befriend truth.” How does one befriend truth? Where to look for it? Whatever is the ultimate truth is not something that we seek outside of us. It is always within us, so nobody’s assistance is needed to seek it. But if you look at it as people are, it needs assistance because of
