Sa Kastha Sa Paragatihi

No one is supposed to dodge or escape from the prearranged Karma. No one in fact should desire to renounce his duties. More over it is impossible to be passive for anybody. Either physically or mentally everyone is always engaged in one or the other type of Karma. The word Jeeva means one who lives. The word Jeeva also has the meaning that his life is dependent. He is in the midst of many who are hierarchically dependent upon one another.
When a Jeeva is involved in this karmic world, the resulting joy and sorrow keep coming to him. Though he goes on losing his ego, power and feelings of attachment, he goes on accumulating the karmic attachment. Hence renunciation of Karma does not mean physical arrest of all activity and giving up of all mental and bodily activity.

Let the world Awake

It is very difficult to bring the truth of the mind out into words. The words are nor to be relied upon as perfect carriers of meaning. This is not only in the worldly transactions but also in terms of spiritual communication. The most perfect rendering even by sages, is susceptible to misinterpretations and ceases to be infallible communicator of the meaning. This has been stated in the Veda itself which says "Yato Vacho Nivartante". The truth that is supposed to flow through the medium of words, through generations is not the same as is distorted partially and sometimes totally and more so when the subject matter is one of abstract nature. There are instances…Read more

Reason for GOD to Celebrate

The most important thing by the point of view of a parent is the welfare of their ehildrcn. Their mind is preoccupied with the health, wealth and the prosperity of their children.

A NEW Way of Positive Thinking

Do a Google search on Positive Thinking and you will end up with several hundreds of millions of hits. Most of the material and philosophies out there link Positive Thinking to a mental state of hope and optimism - irrespective of the event, situation or outcome.

The enemy within

Life is a struggle. We all struggle our way out through every little activity right from the moment we wake up to the moment we are asleep. If sleep happens to be a state of bliss for some, some of us suffer insomnia. The thoughts and anxielies cannot be banished even in sleep. How did we get ourselves into this circuit called "struggle". We worship the supreme almighty in the wish that our sins be lost and we lead a happier life. We have so much faith in the God that he would deliver us. But then why would life be a struggle when we are under His infinite benignancy?...Read more
