Meditate Your Way To Wellness

Meditate Your Way To Wellness

Don’t begin to meditate with an objective in mind because this is against the very spirit of meditation. Meditation is non-doing. Most actions are goal directed and a goal implies a desire. A desire to achieve something through meditation works as an obstacle in attaining the state of meditation. In fact, liberation which is the […]






When The Seeker Becomes The Truth

When The Seeker Becomes The Truth

The anxiety within oneself involved in the process of searching truth begins to settle when real Sadhana begins. Sadhana means an endeavour persistently undertaken especially to search truth. It is one pointed movement towards the desired goal. Desire when driven inwards becomes sadhana and when projected outwards, it is ambition. Ambition is the achievement of material gains. Sadhana is the […]






Being Closer

Being Closer

  Sometimes strolling in a park, Or walking by the sea At times lazing on a terrace, Or ambling in an open space, Be a nobody, a stranger. Don’t mingle. Collect yourself within. Listen to the sound of the waves, The squeals  of  children playing, Or the din of the traffic moving. See the sky, […]






Space

Space

What is the value of a person whose dawn breaks  on streets or railway stations who sips tea at dingy canteens each day whose sells scrap to live who sleeps under an empty sky Who is he in the city of dreams? I don’t know. Perhaps he is a mascot of disparity, inequality of empty […]






Of Very Very Important People

Of Very Very Important People

Have you ever been whistled out of a public park, shooed while halting at a parking place, insulted at a railway ticket window, mocked at a police station? If you were a common citizen of India, you must have been. Admit it.  Born and brought up in India, I have faced this and often my friends have told […]






From Sorrow To Bliss

From Sorrow To Bliss

In deep sorrow lies the doorway to bliss. It is cruel to ask but have you parted from or lost someone whom you loved deeply? In this separation one encounters a deep sorrow. A sorrow that shakes the very root of your being. The loss is not the loss of a person alone; it is also the loss […]






Three Jewels of Meditation

Three Jewels of Meditation

An often repeated question raised during various meetings on meditation with people is: why should I meditate? My simple response is: if you are happy the way you are in this world, don’t meditate. Some baffled by the response, shy away. Others drift to another question: what are the benefits of meditation? My answer differs most times this question […]






Freedom

Freedom

Freedom is raising your hands to the sky and saying, “I am done.” Freedom is running on the beach, falling and saying, “This is it.” Freedom is listening to a tune, weeping and saying, “This is all.” Freedom is letting the waves wash your feet and saying, “You washed my miseries away.” Freedom is sitting […]






The Root of Violence

The Root of Violence

Not only action but also inaction can hurt. Violent action is direct and has obvious forms like killing, injuring, beating, taunting, mocking, and insulting whereas violent inaction can be subtle and indirect. Violent inaction can be both intentional, I call it Manipulative Passivity and it can be unintentional which may be termed as Ignorant Passivity. Both can hurt significantly […]






The Fallacy Of Freedom

The Fallacy Of Freedom

It is only a make-believe that we are born free. We are not. Have you wondered why authorities register your birth? To keep track of you. It is like tying a collar radar on the neck of a beast so one could trace it as and when required and curb its movements. The word ‘official’ is quite […]






Ascetic

Ascetic

In a rustic hut near a river tributary On a secluded land with living serenity In a small temple of a beautiful deity A peaceful mind in an agile body Seeking truth in breath and life in beauty O’ ascetic.. immerse..immerse me in divinity On a hilly terrain inside a forest Beside a Buddha statue […]






The Love Beyond..

The Love Beyond..

One morning I walked into a National Park. I could see a small fragile flower behind a rock, shy but curious and trying to peep from her hiding place. I hesitantly went towards her and sat next to her. After quite some time I asked her if she wanted to say something. She collected herself and said […]
