  • कल्पना करें (Use Your Imagination – in Hindi)

    How many relationships have been damaged or destroyed, and how many wars have been started or empires fallen due to false imagination. We imagine “This one is doing this or that, for this and that reason…”. “They are planning or plotting against me”. “This person hasn’t called/contacted/arrived yet… something terrible must have happened.”

  • र्निव्यसन (De-addict in Hindi)

    We live in a world where almost all of us are addicted to something or other.

  • सत्यता, सम्पूर्ण सत्यता, और कुछ नहीं केवल सत्यता (Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Truth in Hindi)

    Ignorance is bliss they say… or is it? For how long can we stay in ignorance or denial? If we are not willing to face the truth, it would mean that we are willing to accept falsehood as our way of life. Certain truths such as stealing or hurting others are obvious and need no explanation. Other truths have to be felt and realised through experience, contemplation, meditation. And once we do have a realisation, we can never go back to ‘not knowing’, and we cannot accept falsehood again!

  • विघ्न या सुअवसर? (Obstacles or Opportunities?)

    As I create positive thoughts, remain still and silent inside, then I am able to see the whole dimension of the situation and not just the isolated components. I can truly see that there is some benefit in what is unfolding in front of me. The obstacle is perhaps protecting me, guiding me, showing me something new, giving me something better. But I need to have presence of mind to appreciate this new scene. This is a great step forward in self-mastery.
