WHAT IS DHARMA?

  It is so surprising that Dharma and Karma rhyme so well, and yet Dharma and Karma are just but the obverse and reverse side of the same coin. It is a misconception to believe that Karma is wrong; you have good and bad Karma. Good Karma means...

TAKE A CALCULATED RISK

  WE CLING TO THE TRANSITORY VALUE OF LIFE In the relative life, the only thing that is sure is change, and we cling to the changes, the transitory value of life because we find security. I have given you an example before, in the Himalayas, a person...

WHAT ARE SAMSKARAS?
