FIND YOUR OWN WAY

  JNANA-, KARMA- AND BHAKTI YOGA Apart from the known religions, there have been many other unknown teachings. Man is entitled to form his philosophy. There is nothing wrong with that at all. Conviction, honesty and sincerity in what you believe are the most critical factors you must...

AN AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT?

  Some Teachers have promised an Age of Enlightenment where the entire world will be enlightened. If we study known history, this has not happened so far, but these teachers saying there will be an Age of Enlightenment have not told us how many million years. There can...

EVERYTHING IS PURE

  The absolute is forever a pure entity, and being a pure entity is always a simple entity. All the relativity that we perceive around us is always very complex. Primal simplicity has become complicated, and we have forgotten how to recognise clarity because of the complexity. It...

THE VALUE OF BODY & MIND

  WE ARE SUBJECTED TO THE WORKINGS OF NATURE There is no difference between body and mind, and the difference would be subtle; in other words, the body exists on a grosser level than the mind. The mind, which also matters, exists on a more subtle level. Being...

WHAT ARE SAMSKARAS?

  Samskaras are not things that are impressed upon something. According to ancient philosophers, there is something called the mind-stuff of which the mind is composed.

INDIVIDUALITY

FROM SILENCE TO SILENCE

  In the scriptures, it is said: “From silence we come and to silence we return.” We come from silence and end up in silence. Has it been a journey, or have we not travelled at all? That remains the question. If it has been a journey coming...
