"Thought is the most potent and creative power in the world. It initially takes shape in an individual mind. When shared with others, any benevolent thought starts growing as a vibrant process encompassing more and more people. It is such collective benevolent thoughts that build up great cultural values and treasure in the society."

  • PR 16 Dec 2011 - Fill Your Mind with Divine Thoughts

    Suppose in the whole house, right from the morning and in the evening, you have only exchanged secular words, secular words, worldly words, domestic words – what are these domestic words? The items that you need, the things that you have done, you have in mind, going to the office, working there to give them some productivity, making profit, this, that, and all, all these are perishable, perishable, perishable. So your discussions are around the perishable, therefore they become – in vain! When you don’t make a reference to the Paramatma, the Supreme lord, throughout the day, in your talks, in your thoughts, in your exchanges, in your interactions, understand mṛṣā girastā, all the words are ‘in vain’, put a red cross over it.

  • PR 15 Dec 2011 - Sadhana is Sharpening the Intelligence to Drill into the Mind

    Ultimately what is this sadhana? It is the twin process of eliminating the undesirable and incorporating the desirable. Whatever undesirable is there, the knowledge that it is undesirable itself is sufficient for you to get rid of it. I don’t think you should seek any other help. You don’t have to go to a temple, you don’t have to go to a mountain. Simply leave it. Why? It is undesirable. Otherwise say desirable, desirable, and have more of it. The moment the intelligence is told this is undesirable … undesirable … undesirable, reflect upon this word. Undesirable … undesirable. “If it is undesirable, what shall I do? Shall I host it? Shall I fondle it? Or shall I eschew it?” The question and the process are purely inner! It is a question of developing more and more intensity, intensity. In other words, the entire sadhana is sharpening your intelligence. It has to drill itself into the mind and the mind has to grow purity, sublimity, blissfulness, contentment.

  • PR 31 May 2013 - The Message of Valmiki Ramayana

    Rama decided to abandon Sita. Now tell me, can you imagine a conflict greater and more severe than this? Our mind is always interacting with the world and world situations in which human beings and inter-personal relationships and are very, very important. Now this inter personal relationships can be as refined as you can imagine or more. It can also be as ugly and cruel as it could ever be. Here the righteous Rama was confronted by a situation where in spite of the wedded loyalties he has, the love he has, he had to take a decision to abandon his pregnant wife. Can the human mind rise to such a level of taking a momentary decision whose consequences will linger on for decades and may be eternally as long as time is there? The ancient instance of Rama’s abandonment of Sita is even now current in the mind, thoughts and words of the people. So it was not just a moment’s decision, a decision which had a long and eternal consequence and response.

  • Karmayoga too is a buddhi-based pursuit

    The following article is reproduced from the English Monthly from the Ashram Vicharasetu – August 1997 Essential Concepts in Bhagavadgeeta - 11   The way Krishna concludes his instructions on Sankhya Yoga, is greatly significant in that he emphasizes how the ‘Soul concept’ has to be applied in actual life, while coursing through the daily interactions. The message makes the Sankhya pursuit universal:...

  • Context and Relevance of Bhagavadgeeta

    The discussions of Geeta, when properly viewed cannot be any sudden emergence. Their genesis lies far deeper, taking us back to the post-Vedic thoughts of the land. Vedic thinkers were no doubt religious, but only for a short time in the beginning. Very soon their temperament grew sharply analytical and philosophical to enter irresistibly into the deep spiritual realms, which engulfed their life and pursuit. The course and finale of Vedic thinking are clear to the discerning mind even today, when it glances through the great sublime literarture, which is climaxed and crowned by the great Upanishads. Bhagavadgeeta in fact reflects the extensive Vedic voyage, although it emphasizes more significantly the Upanishadic pursuit and findings. While it has a brief religious background, the foreground it builds up and presents is fully of the great Upanishads.

  • Celibacy, A Sadly Misunderstood Virtue ... Part 1 of 5

    "Dharmo rakshathi, rakshitah" translated "Dharma protects, protected" What does this mean? Dharma is a force which greatly protects us, but if it has to act as a protecting force, we have to first protect it ourselves. We must recognize the importance of the role which Dharma plays in our life, and then install it at all levels, in thinking, in talking, in doing every thing that we do, we must see that Dharma reigns supreme. If this is ensured, then Dharma will in turn sustain us like the loving Mother. redeeming us from the dangers and ills which would otherwise harass our lives frequently.

  • Might and Magnificience of Mantra

    The devotees who have taken mantra-deeksha should reflect how Ratnakara and Dhruva got transformed. Each of you has what Dhruva and Ratnakara had- a body and senses, a mind, intelligence and heart. Can you not then achieve what Dhruva and Ratnakara could? The laws of the mind have not changed. The will and wish are equally effective even today. Where lies the difference then? In your perception, interest, assessment and resolve.

  • 16 - Sakala Bhuvana - Have One-Pointed Devotion to the Lord

    The best treasure or wealth that man should possess in this world is one-pointed devotion to God. What is one-pointed devotion? In such devotion, the object of devotion becomes supreme in one’s life. He thinks about the object constantly so that his mind becomes one with the object of devotion. When one has one-pointed devotion to God, God becomes supreme in his life. He sees God in everybody and everything. His mind then naturally transcends likes and dislikes. As a result his mind becomes rid of all agitating traits born of likes and dislikes.

  • 17 - Niraashataa Nirbhayata - Qualities in a Knower of Truth

    In spiritual science, whatever are the qualities of the Knower, become the pursuits for the seekers. When a seeker yearns zealously, and strives sincerely to cultivate these qualities getting rid of worldly desires, he very naturally evolves to the state of Knowerhood. To cultivate the qualities of a Knower, a sādhaka will have to transcend likes and dislikes. He will have to pursue purity of mind and intelligence and develop dispassion. In the pure mind, the Self reveals itself, just as in a clear mirror one is able to see his face distinctly.

  • 18 - Naayamaatma - Have Pure and Zealous Yearning for Self-Knowledge

    For every seeker, this shloka is a watchword. No amount of intelligence, learning, lecturing, hearing or scholarship can help in the knowledge of the Self. The seeker has to judge whether every moment the love for realizing the Self is becoming more and more wholesome. Only when this love for the Self becomes wholesome, when nothing else satisfies the seeker, when he wants to be always in the embrace of his own Self, then alone Self-knowledge is had.
