THE BASIS OF ALL RELIGIONS

  IN OUR TEACHING, WE GO BEYOND ALL DOGMATIC BELIEFS If someone asks me, “Are you a Christian?” I would say, “Yes.” If someone asks me, “Are you a Muslim?” I would say, “Yes.” If someone asks me, “Are you a Buddhist? Hindu?” I would say “Yes” all...

THE WAY OUT OF DIFFICULTIES

  WORK CAN ALSO BECOME A SPIRITUAL PATH Being on this spiritual path does not mean one must shirk all one’s worldly responsibilities. The body needs food; after all, what is your body? Nothing but food. It is the food that is eaten by a person that produces...

KARMA AND FREE WILL

  Karma has been produced because of free will. Divine Will does not produce any Karma, for Divine Will is non-binding. But free will can be binding, and there can be good Karma and bad Karma. They are binding because all Karma has nothing to do with the...

WHAT IS GOD?

  Everyone and everything are Divine; what man observes is just the manifestation of the Manifestor. Because man functions only with his five senses, and the five senses are very limited because we usually use only a tiny fraction of our minds. The fraction is so small that...

WHAT IS OUR DHARMA?

  When a person is born, he is born with certain tendencies, tendencies which might go back into many previous lifetimes, if one believes in that, or even tendencies which he inherits from his parents. But the environment in which he is born also influences his tendencies, and...

THE MEANING OF TRUE ACCEPTANCE

  NO ONE ON EARTH REMOVES ALL THEIR SAMSKARAS As we have discussed before, all the impressions that we have had form what is known as our ego. No one on earth, not even the greatest man that has ever lived, including Krishna, Christ or Buddha, could get...

HOW TO RECEIVE GRACE?

  You could never become enlightened without the Grace of Divinity. You cannot even move a finger without the Grace of Divinity, and enlightenment itself is Grace. With the Grace from Divinity, which pours in you and through you, you become that Grace. How can you become that...

THE NATURE OF THOUGHTS

  “FIRST WAS THE WORD AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD, AND THE WORD IS GOD” That which we know as evolution was created at the time of the big bang when billions and billions of articles flew through this vastness of the universe. The neutral energy or...

HOW TO RESOLVE PERSONAL CONFLICTS?

  SPIRITUAL PRACTICES, SELF-HELP AND GURUSHAKTI When one proceeds to the finer and finer levels of the ego, conflicts automatically resolve themselves. By trying to resolve a conflict, you are creating a more significant conflict. The very idea of resolving a conflict is the seed of another discord....

STRETCHING THE EGO

  It is a misconception that one must get rid of one’s ego to fulfil one’s potential. That is not possible. If man remains an embodied being, there will be ego. In the grosser person, the ego would be expressed in a gross value, and in a more...

FORGET THE PSYCHICS

  Forget the opening of the third eye; concentrate on the opening of the Heart! As awareness expands through meditational practices, all so-called supernatural powers come automatically, but our end and aim are not for these supernatural powers. You see how paradoxical this is, or how misinterpreted this...

HUMILITY REQUIRES STRENGTH

  In the Bible, it says that “the meek shall inherit the earth.” The meek shall inherit the earth, not only the earth but the heavens. Meekness is not cowardice. Meekness comes from strength; a better word for meekness is humility, and you have to be strong to...
