On most days I find myself caught between two worlds, the human world of having to get things done, make money, have sex, clean the house, cook meals and make everyone happy. The other world has nothing to be done rather there is a yearning to know, know everything about who we are and why we are here.
No big task and absolutely no pressure in either…Continue
What does it mean to create from the soul and how we do it? First, we need to silence exterior and inner criticism, and then get our conscious ego out of the way.

“I arrived in Calcutta and made my way to the shrine of Sri Ramakrishna. Belur Math was built after his final Maha-Samadhi, the death of Sri Ramakrishna.

When most refer to their tribe, they refer to their “earthly” tribe – close friends and…Continue

Somehow, she thinks that…even though she was the allower of the brutality that ruled my childhood…and with her words so severely limited my scope of things to choose from in this life.

Commit sin, even involuntarily,
As if driven by force, O Varshneya?”

Bhagavad Gita, Ch.3, v. 36,37 (transl. by Maharishi)
