Good Sankalpas (thought impulses) can elicit the best out of man and help him to use all his mental strength for his uplift. Ships at sea are guided by the compass along the desired direction; without it, they risk being wrecked on rocks or icebergs. Man has to sail safe across the ocean of Samsara (worldly existence). So he needs a one-pointed, unruffled mind to guide him and guard him. Man has to recognise bad Sankalpas as soon as they arise and render them ineffective by the systematic… Continue

Bhagavath Gita mentions 'Udhaseenah' (being unruffled by anything) as one of the qualities of the devotee who is dear to the Lord. This means that one should be totally free from selfishness. One must consider the performance of one's duties as the sole purpose of one's existence. One should perform one's duties indifferent to fame or blame, not seeking power or position. One must act according to the dictates of one's conscience, without any other concern. All actions must be performed in a… Continue

Live in absolute conviction that you are the Atma (spirit). The Atma sees through the eyes, hears through the ears, handles through the fingers and moves through the feet. That is the basic ‘You’. That ‘You’ is not elated by praise or deflated by blame. As long as you are overcome with fear and anxiety, you will not be able to accomplish anything. Be courageous! Know that you are the Atma, not this body; then you will be without fear. God, can help you achieve great things, but only if you base… Continue

Love in itself, can't be described, for all described is never love.
But love can talk through gowns of words.
When taken off - it's purely here.
Love does reflect itself in all.
For all the things are made from love.
United, love melts all divisions.
To feel the love means being love.
When love sees me then I am loved.
When I see love then I am love.
One can't succeed to cling to… Continue

If you see good in people, you radiate a harmonious loving energy which uplifts those around you. If you can maintain this habit,this energy will turn into a steady flow of love.

The world as a whole has forgotten the real meaning of the word love. Love has been so abused and crucified by man that very few people know what true love is. Just as oil is present in every part of the olive, so love permeates every part of creation. But to define love is very difficult, for the same reason that words cannot fully describe the flavor of an orange. You have to taste the fruit to know its flavor. So with love.In the universal sense, love is the divine power of attraction in… Continue

"Sentience is the ability to feel or perceive subjectively. It is an important concept in philosophy, particularly in the philosophy of animal ethics and in eastern philosophy, as well as in science fiction and the study of artificial intelligence, although in each of these fields the term is used slightly differently. Advocates of animal rights argue that all animals are sentient in that they can feel pleasure and pain, which entails the presumption of certain moral rights and ought to entail… Continue

The blemishes of the heart have to be washed by
the moral life and the doing of one’s duty. A
time may come when man becomes tired and
weak but he should then pray thus: Lord, things have gone
beyond my capacity. I feel further effort is too great a strain.
Give me strength, O Lord!
At first, God stands at a distance watching man’s
efforts, like the teacher who stands apart when the student
writes out answers to his questions. Then when man sheds

Slowly mounting, tremulous pitches, heighten senses
Hurricane passions, whipping against the gates of the soul
Whispered echoes of hearts beating in rhyme
Like torrential rains, flash floods…in the blink of an eye
Overtake…losing all conscious thought
Further and further away, the raging river flows
Transcended awareness, swirling in the… Continue

The dot or bindi also known as 'tika', 'pottu', 'sindoor', 'tilak', 'tilakam', 'bindiya', 'kumkum' and by other names. Pronounced as 'Bin Dee', the word bindi is derived from the Sanskrit word bindu, which means "drop". Bindi is an auspicious ornamental mark worn by Hindu girls and women on their forehead between the two eyes . Bindi is arguably the most visually fascinating in all form of body decoration. More than a beauty spot, the manga tika (bindi) indicates good omen and… Continue

I would like to move ahead with the KARMA blog where LIANA ji stopped. She had given a proper image of what KARMA is as in the SRUTHI(original scripture), i would like to go ahead with the same topic getting in some more details.
The Vedic scripture, Mahabharata, says that just as a calf can always find its mother , even if its wandered into a large herd, so our past karma will always hunt us down. This is the law of karma.
The four kind of KARMA is well described in the… Continue

It is the duty of every man to realise the purpose of life and utilise his time in the performance of his duties to sanctify his existence. Given the will, there is nothing that man cannot achieve in this world. But before embarking on any enterprise, man should recognise his abilities and endowments. Mankind has acquired the ability to explore the stars or walk on the moon, but has been unable to understand its true nature; man has become ignorant of his unity with the integral consciousness.… Continue

To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given the chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life.
People around the world have been talking about a movie so powerful that it can change the course of your life. This movie, The Secret, was created by Australian Rhonda Byrne, and she says that if you follow its philosophy, you can create the life you want--whether that means getting out of debt, finding a more fulfilling job or even… Continue

Not female, male, nor neuter is the Self.
As is the body, so is the gender.
The Self takes on a body, with desires,
Attachments, and delusions. The Self is
Born again and again in new bodies
To work out the karma of former lives.
