FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT

Dear friends, Happy Diwali. One sentence from the Upanishads has been coming to me again and again: Asato mā sadgamaya tamasomā jyotir gamaya May I proceed from untruth to truth and from darkness to light. The Diwali festival is a ritual reminding us of the importance of moving from darkness to light, from ignorance to truth. And the intention is only this: how to evolve. What is the darkness in us? Primarily it is our state of ignorance, sloth, inaction and unawareness. Whatever we are doing, whether it...

If you want a fresh perspective towards life, you need to go beyond the conditioning.   This de-conditioning of the inner being is called de-cluttering or cleaning, and it frees up space, and renews our energy. We need to...

Our Rx is Meditation, minimum 1x per day

Dear friends, When a flight is about to take off and the cabin attendants are demonstrating the safety procedures, they will give the instruction, “In case of a drop in cabin pressure during the flight, please put on your oxygen mask before helping others.” A common reaction is, “Isn’t that selfish?” but think about it.

The next stage of the journey: Hosur Peace, meditation and higher states of consciousness   Daaji: The essence of the Bhagavad Gita is this: happiness can only be had when we are at peace. When we are restless, can we enjoy happiness? It sounds paradoxical. How to arrive at peace? Lord Krishna says we arrive at peace only through contemplation. How is that possible? Through focused thinking. And how is focused thinking possible? Only through meditation. Lord Krishna again explains in the Gita that...
