"virtues and sins"

1. The joy of virtues and the sorrows of sin are both conditions of the mind when it comes to react between specific circumstances in the outer world and the particular intellectual conditions within.2. The same set of circumstances in the outer world may not necessarily prove to be a sin to all people; the intellectual composition being different from person to person, the required mental structure for a tortuous sin-experience will not be created.3. An act which is considered as cruelty or a sin in one part of the world does not become so poignant and sinful in another part of the world, where they believe differently, since their customs and conditions have wrapped them of a different texture in their intellectual standard.4. When an individual grows more and more in his knowledge, many of his instinct-motivated actions fall off the grace, and the chances are that he is rendered  totally and completely incapable of doing any more sin.5. He is no more in his ego-centric-self, arroga…


Vrttavicikitsa:- These represent certain doubts regarding man's conduct; for example, in a country like Bharatham, which incorporates in its vast embrace a variety of geographical conditions, habits and customs, flora and fauna, we  find even contrary and opposite conducts recognised as ethical and moral in different parts of the country . 2.  Under matriarchal system, the uncle's daughter can be married by the nephew, wile in other parts of Bharatham it is tabooed.3. In one place the bridegroom  is purchased by the father-in-law with a dowry for the sad privilege of accepting his daughter as wife.4. While in certain parts the girl is purchased as cattle for agricultural purposes!5. In majority places if one husband for a woman is considered as normal, but for certain others one man marries maximum four women as wives and in another tribe three or four men( brothers) maintain a single woman.6. Thus a student comes to doubt as to what is the right conduct; and he is directed in…

"Gifts should be given with Faith"

1. 'Faith is not what we generally understand it to mean.2. In society faith is generally understood as some idea to be swallowed without questioning, without enquiry.3. To be under the intellectual tyranny of an individual or a class is not faith according to Vedanta.4. This has been made clear in the Vvekachudamani by Sri Sankaracharya.5. Swamiji says that to judge and understand rightly the full import of the advice of the teachers and the depth of the declarations in the sacred texts and, to struggle in our thoughts and activities constantly to attune  ourselves to these intellectual judgement, is called 'Faith.' 6. Therefore, charity is acceptable only when it toes the line of our own independent  beliefs and convictions.7. Unless we are convinced of the nobility of the cause, and unless we have come to a correct and independent judgement upon its worthiness, charity should not be practiced.8. There is a school of intellectual idlers who believe that our charity must …

"Thought leaves its impression upon the mental world"

1. The moment  we correct our thinking and redress the mistake in the evaluations of things in the world, we know how to redeem ourselves from the sins and walk the path of virtue.2. But, the difficulty felt by practitioners is that they not completely independent of the reactions of their past mistakes.3. Every action and every thought leaves its impression upon the mental world, and every following thought and action has a tendency to repeat itself.4. Thus, having made one misjudgement, the flow of thoughts thereafter has an irresistible tendency and an irrepressible urge to flow in the same direction, pushing the injustice more and more into positive criminalised and low animal isms.5. The only way we can redeem ourselves from our mistakes is to correct our way of thinking and rewrite the entire pattern of thoughts in ourselves.6. This erasing of the wrong patterns and rewriting the unhealthy lines of thinking are both accomplished by the same divine process, which is prescribed in…


1. Prakruthi ( Nature) is a mix of three gunas: a). Sattvic, b). Rajas, c). Tamas. 2. Trigunas all manifested in all living things and matters.3. We human beings are born with these three gunas, with up-and-down difference in individual to individual.4. Ramayanam charecters, a). Vibhishanan-Sattvic,  b). Ravanan - Rajas,  c). Kumbhakarnan-Tamas, 5. These characters are in us, sometime we are Ravanan in superlative degree, next occasionally Vibhishanan, balance as Kumbhkarnan. 6. Trimurthis :  Brahma, Vishnu, Maheswara are representing: Sattvic, Tamas, Rajs respectively. 6.1,  In time: morning is sattvic,  noon is rajas,  evening(night) is tamas.7. One who overcomes and comes out of the influence of these three guns and remain beyond them is known as Gunadithan. 8. Gunadithan is very near to the Lord, connected to the Lord, united with the Lord, becomes Eswaran himself. 9. We are talking about the mind, 10. and not the body.

" A mere Witness"

1. When ignorance and its effects are removed forever by the holy
initiation  of the Teacher  and the seeker attains real
Knowledge, his mind will be firmly established in its own natural
2. Such a mind can no more fall a victim to delusion.
3. A saint  of this order lives and moves freely in the world
amongst various people and places, rid of all botheration and
4. One graced and enlightened by the Teacher like this may
come across youthful persons, both men and women, decked
beautifully with colourful dresses and gold ornaments, looking
exquisitely attractive as if they were pictures painted by the expert
artist. 5.Though moving and even sporting with them, the true Knower
will at heart be a mere witness of what he sees in front. 6. Steeped well in his own internal quiet and stability, he will never be put to any
distractions or agitations.

"Divine Spark: Self( Atma) Within yourself"

1. Often it happens that we keep on desperately searching for a key or an important paper all over the room until somebody points out to us, either the key in our own hands, or the paper that is just in front of us on the table. 2. The knowledge, that the key that I was searching for is in my own hand, is a knowledge that gives me back the key that I had lost. 3. When we say that by 'knowing the thing, we 'reach'  the thing known, we only mean that the thing was already with us, and yet, it was screened off  from us temporarily  by our own ignorance of it. 4.  The ignorance of it is removed by our knowledge of it; and the thing that was already with us becomes available for our own experience. 5. Similarly, he who realises  that Divine Spark, the Self( Atma) within himself, comes to know it, in the sense that he rediscovers that which was already within him, but which lay unfortunately, veiled from him by his own ignorance.  6. Taittiriya Upanishad: Chapter-2, Section-1,…

"Three Gunas"

Rajas, Tamas, Sattvic Gunas:- 1. Rajas has its Vikshepa-Shakti or projecting power, which is of the nature of an activity, and from which this primeval flow of activity has emanated. From this also, mental modifications such as attachment and grief are continually produced. 2. Lust, anger, avarice, arrogance, spite, egoism, envy, jealousy, etc., -- these are the dire attributes of Rajas, from which the worldly tendency of man is produced. Therefore Rajas is a cause of bondage.  3. Avriti or the veiling power is the power of Tamas, which makes things appear other than what they are. It is this that causes man’s repeated transmigrations, and starts the action of the projecting power (Vikshepa). 4. Even wise and learned men and men who are clever and adept in the vision of the exceedingly subtle Atman, are overpowered by Tamas and do not understand the Atman, even though clearly explained in various ways. What is simply superimposed by delusion, they consider as true, and attach themse…

"What is the ideal way to live"

1. In the thick of life's batter, there may arise situations in which there may be a doubt in your mind as to what is the ideal  way to live. 2. In all such cases, the Hindu youngster is advised to follow other elderly members of the society who are accredited champions of our culture. 3. These cultural perfections should not be, in themselves the qualifications necessary to make a man perfect enough to be followed by others.  4. He must not be one who is merely secular in concept of things, but should have respect and reverence for the sancity of the sacred.

"Experience able Self in the Heart"

1.The psychologist, estimating the mental character and composition of a suicide, declares that a person decides to die and raises a weapon against himself only when he, at the impact of a sudden and immediate disappointment in life, comes to feel that there is no more a chance of happiness, or no more an occasion to smile, in future. 2. No creature can live without joy, and every moment of life is an active-seeking of a greater joy. 3. If this motive force is removed from life, the entire existence tumbles down and permanently comes to halt. 4. The movement of life is continued and kept up by the dynamism of this joy-hunting. 5. Naturally, the teacher here declares quite appropriately that no creature can be there and continue to breathe in its body embodiment if its heart were not full of this experience able Self.

"Lord Parthasarathy"

1. Suppression of mind is no process to raise into Perfection of Godhood. 2. Mind is to be held back from its dirty self-destroying imaginations through a diligent process of discrimination ( Viveka). 3. Uncontrolled by the intellect, mind should not be brought forcibly to a sudden and jerky standstill. 4. Mental elimination should come about as a result of intellectual conviction and discrimination. 5. A mind controlled by a purified intellect alone can take us to the greater realms of Spiritual Perfection. 6. It is for this reason that we have the description of Lord Parthasarathy holding the reins of the five horses in Arjuna's Chariot. 7. Here the Charioteer must be the representation of pure intellect. 8. Thus , when a sadhaka controls his five sense-organs by a mind pulled tight by his pure reason, that individual alone can make a safe journey to the Infinite.

"Sandya Vandanam"

1. Majority in us do not know "Sandya Vandanam".

2. It is not mere chanting of some mantram or other in the evenings, as many of us are thinking.

3. Sandya: means a joint or meeting place, when the sun sets light gradually down and darkness  in, hence this mid space is used connect yourself,

4. Vandanam: total surrender, once you connect you with the Lord.

5. So this means a time to link with the Eswaran and surrender to him. "Dyanam" ( Meditation).

"Karma Abhasa"

1. The dreamer in you while dreaming, becomes the dream-father of the dream-son born to your dream-wife; 2. but on waking up, the dreamer has ended and so the awakened you shall have no botheration of looking after your deam-wife, 3. nor the blessings of having been served by your dream-children. 4. Thus on realizing your real nature to be the Self, all egoism ends and thereafter even if that saint acts, he will not be acting with egoistic self-arrogation. 5. He thereafter, is but a mute instrument of the Lord to work trough . 6. Thereafter, the seer's work is technically called in Vedanta as Karma Abhasa: 7. A prophet is responsible for his actions as much as you are responsible for the murder you have committed in your dream.

"Self is not grasped by Words"

1. Words are symbols of experiences lived by the mind and so words cannot express deeper experiences or trans-mind joys. 2. Even when experiences are rather intimate and deep, words fail. 3. Naturally, the experiences in the white-heat of intense meditation cannot be expressed in terms of a frail language which is insufficient even to express my love for my own beloved! 4. Hence the scripture says, "Self is not grasped by words." 5. It is only through mutual feelings that one can understand love; a real lover can appreciate the depth of sincerity even through 'silence.' 6. So too, it is in the silence  between two minds,  as it were,  that the Sruti takes Her courtiers into the ample bosom where  they experience the joy and glory of "Godhood"!

"To our own Damnation"

1. If a statement in higher mathematics is not intelligible to an advocate or a lawyer, he must certainly mad to pass  a judgement thereby and declare that higher mathematics is meaningless. 2. And yet this is exactly what you and I are doing: without equipping ourselves with the necessary preliminary knowledge, 3. we jump into the great Science of Living and Life, as discussed in the text-books, the Scriptures, 4. and when we cannot understand them we unjustly criticise it to our own damnation!!!

"Meritorious Acts"

1. Meritorious acts are divided into two groups by our ancient Rishies. 2. a). Ishta, b). Purtam. 3.Ishta: constituted the yajnas and yagas, the Agnihotra ( the fire kindling ceremony) traditionally enjoins, on a brahmana householder, learning and teaching of Vedas, Austerity, Truthfulness, Hospitality and the ceremony called Vaisvadeva which comprises the feeding of animals and birds. 4. Purtam: comprises of public utility welfare such as sinking of wells, construction of water storage tanks, establishing Dharmasalas for travellors, opening of schools, hospitals, temples, laying gardens, feeding the poor and such other works without any desire for gains ( fruits)....... 5. Today every act is selfish looking before the gains achieved from these activities!!!

" Boomidevi's Reaction to Human Evil Deeds"

1. The suffocating Boomidevi ( Mother Earth), one of Pancha Boodhams ( Five Elements), that is the Prapancham will not tolerate the evils,

2. We human beings foolish crowd destroy mother nature when ever we get an opportunity, 3. It is going on until the balance is lost, 4. Thereafter to just warn these evils just shake herself resulting in Earth quakes. 5. But we the culprits never learn any lessons, continue our evil deeds..............

"Jeevan-Muktha"( One who Liberated -in-Life)

1. The liberated in life ( Jeevan-Muktha) certainly lives amidst us, as one of us, perceiving clearly world we are so familiar with. 2. But he sees the world now in a new light. 3. He recognises it as a gorgeous expression of the very Self ( Atma) within him. 4. He can no longer be fascinated by the beautiful objects and the charming beings around him. 5. Not that he runs away from the world; certainly he lives and acts amidst us, but no more as a slave to the happenings, but as a saviour of the age and its culture 6. He accepts everything as Eswaran's Prasadham  and He reflects everything, yet  He keeps a mirror.

" Learning from child"

"When we watch a child trying to walk, we see its countless failures; its successes are but few. If we had to limit our observation within a narrow space of time, the sight would be cruel. But we find that in spite of its repeated failures there is an impetus of joy in the child which sustains it in its seemingly impossible task. We see it does not think of its falls so much as of its power to keep its balance though for only a moment.

Like these accidents in a child's attempts to walk, we meet with sufferings in various forms in our life every day, showing the imperfections in our knowledge and our available power, and in the application of our will. But if these revealed our weakness to us only, we should die of utter depression. When we select for observation a limited area of our activities, our individual failures and miseries loom large in our minds; but our life leads us instinctively to take a wider view. It gives us an ideal of perfection wh…

"Upanishads and the Mind"

The Upanishads compare God to a spider that weaves its web out of its own body and lies at the
center of it. There is general agreement that the principle and source of the universe is Brahman. The
resolution of the relationship between Brahman and the universe is the central theme of Vedanta, and
the Upanishads. The relative standpoint is Saguna Brahman, the manifestation of Brahman by the
human soul, viewed through the human spectacles. Nirguna Brahman, is the absolute standpoint,
where Brahman is God as He views Himself independently. Sankara's Advaita Vedanta explains why
Brahman, individual soul (Atman), and the Universe is not different. Madhvacharya's Dvaita Vedanta
describes the conception of God with the basic assumption that Brahman, individual souls, and the
world are different. The Taittiriya Upanishad using the story of the enlightenment of Bhrigu, the son
of Varuna explains the ideas of creation and realization. The universe has five orders of beings:
material o…

"What is the right path of our life?"

Positive mental attitude will help us to change our life without forcing others to change. Realities
can be sometimes painful, but we can always avoid unnecessary sufferings! Every religion wants
to help people to remove negative tendencies. Religions do play an important role to cope up
with uncertainties and unforeseen events in everyone's life. Modern management techniques do
stress the importance of positive mental attitude and managers get training accordingly. Positive
mental attitude was responsible for the success of leaders in science, politics, religion, industry,
and sport. The Upanishads classify the human mind into pure and impure. Persons who sustain
pure mind can maintain positive mental attitude. Ego, hatred and jealousy germinate when the
mind gets corrupted. The person who hates suffers more than the hated entity! Positive mental
attitude is obviously a win-win choice for everyone. The following article will illustrate the
benefits of keeping a positive mental a…

"Satvic Guna + Vegetarianism = Daiveeka Samskaram"

1. Our country Bharatham suffered by Muslim so called kings ( cruel) Invasions and Delhi rule for long period in history, 2. Later westerners British, French, Portuguese, Dutch, came on several intentions and occupied here to rule, it was a great struggle to us all, very black days in history, 3. These two groups made us slaves and treated us so badly, 4. Compulsory conversions ( Islam and Christian) took place in those days, 5. Except few pockets Bharatham withstood the onslaught of this atrocity, 6. Later Mahatma Gandhi came to the scene and we got freedom.7. Here Mahatma had no weapons for his fight against the British, He had Srimad Bhagavad Geeta on one hand, Ahimsa on other hand, and with vegetarianism.8. Satvic Guna and vegetarianism, makes a person to possess Daiveeka Samskaram.9. Because of our Upanishadic Culture we withstood Religious conversion attempts by the foreign rulers.10. At present our politicians play religious cards to get votes, these power hungry monsters may throw …

"Santi is the product of contentment and not the ghastly child born of sensuous flirtations with sense-objects": ....

1. Fortunately, in the Vedik period they maintained a strict code of (conduct) the Dharmas.
2. Sanatana Dharma was the spirit of the age; and the descendants for a long time,
3. till the recent present, have been, by a superfine systems of communal living and through an ordered and rigid system of social values,
4. trying to keep up the spirit of Sanatana dharma.
5. If there is yet a greater dose of individual inner joy experienced by the millions in our Bharatheeya villages, in spite of their poverty, starvation, death and disease, 
6. we have only to thank  the ever-blessing time-tested system of happy living called the Sanatana dharmam.
7. Compared with modern citizen in the greatest of our cities, New york, we can definitely say that Mentally speaking, the poor Bharatheeyan rot, is any day enjoying a greater share of inward Peace and  Joy than his American brother.
8. "Santi is the product of Contentment and not the ghastly child of sensuous flirtations with sense-objects.          

"Seizure of Human Mind":

BG: Chapter-1, Slokam-47.
Seizure of Human Mind by Emotion, Ego, Ignorance and Stupidity (1-47) The human Arjun is overwhelmed by emotion and self-pity and collapses down on the seat of his chariot. He throws down his bow, arrow and dignity. He momentarily forgets his True Human Nature and desperately asks for outside help. Instantaneously, ignorance, selfishness, self-centered ego, emotion and stupidity takes charge of his personality. He separates himself from his true human nature and neglects his obligation to fight the war. Fortunately, the flash of light from his subconscious mind emerges to give all the necessary guidance to fight his freedom from emotion, ego and ignorance and to save the human soul.

"The True Human Nature"

The True Human Nature (Stithaprajna) : (BG-CH-14 -Slokams 24 to 26)

4.  who is firm of mind,
5.  who regards both blame and praise as one,

6. who is the same in honor and dishonor,

"Who is responsible for Human Desires? " :

Though the source of this story is not known, it is funny and it does have a message!God created the mule, and told him, "You will be mule, working constantly from dusk to dawn, carrying heavy loads on your back. You will eat grass and lack intelligence. You will live for 50 years." The mule answered, "To live like this for 50 years is too much. Please, give me no more than 20." And it was so. Then God created the dog, and told him, "You will hold vigilance over the dwellings of Man, to whom you will be his greatest companion. You will eat his table scraps and live for 25 years." And the dog responded, "Lord, to live 25 years as a dog like that is too much. Please, no more than 10 years." And it was so. God then created the monkey, and told him, "You are monkey. You shall swing from tree to tree, acting like an idiot. You will be funny, and you shall live for 30 years." And the monkey responded, "Lord, to live 30 years as the clow…

"What is Balanced Mind?"

What is Balanced Mind? (Bhagavadgeeta- 5 - 22 & 23) Those who realize that real happiness does not born out of
the pleasures from contacts with objects and who are able to resist the rush of desire and anger will 
have a balanced mind.


1.Fear is the cause for akarmam, 
2. To come out of it is: drop the fear, divert the mind, and dedicate the mind in karmam.

"Food - Wastage"

Gita Jayanti
By the grace of Bhagavan Vyasa this unique Gospel of the Gita was revealed to the world by Sanjaya on the eleventh day (Ekadasi) of the bright half of the Margasirsha month (December) according to the Hindu almanac. This day is celebrated as the Gita Jayanti or the Birthday of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, throughout India by all admirers and lovers of this wonderful treasure of wisdom.
Worship the Srimad Bhagavad Gita as a holy scripture. Study a chapter from it daily. But, stop not with that. Live in the spirit of the teachings of the Gita. Mere talk and lecture will not help you in any way. You may know the whole of the Gita by heart; you may deliver lectures on the Gita for hours together; and yet, you may not have a ray of the wisdom of the Gita. What is wanted is regular practice of the teachings of the Gita. 
Become intensely practical. Let the Gita guide your thoughts, prompt your speech, and rule your actions. Then your whole attitude towards life will be gradually chan…


The Teaching of the Gita
------------------------------/Man is a composite of three fundamental factors, viz., cognition, feeling and will. There are people with three kinds of temperaments, viz., the active temperament, the emotional temperament and the rational temperament. So, there are the three Yogas, viz., Jnana Yoga for the man of enquiry and self-analysis or rational temperament, Bhakti Yoga for the man of emotional temperament, and Karma Yoga for the man of active temperament. One Yoga is as efficacious as the other.
The Gita, therefore, formulates the theory of the three Margas (paths), viz., the Jnana Marga, the Bhakti Marga and the Karma Marga, to suit to people of all temperaments. According to the teaching of the Gita, there is no conflict among the three. The Gita harmonises wonderfully the philosophy of action, devotion and knowledge. All the three must be harmoniously blended if you wish to attain perfection. You should have the head of Sri Sankara, the heart of Lord Bu…


The Need For A Teacher
As the Gita contains subtle and profound teachings, you should study it under a qualified teacher, a Brahma-nishtha Guru, with great faith, single-minded devotion and purity. Then only the truths of the Gita will be revealed unto you like the Amalaka fruit in the hand. Good commentaries like Swami Madhusudana’s Gita, Sri Swami Sankarananda’s Gita, Sri Sankara’s commentary, etc., written by realised sages, will be of immense help to you.
Lord Krishna speaks from different levels of consciousness. Therefore, the help of a teacher is necessary if you wish to know the right significance of the Slokas. You cannot rightly comprehend the meaning of the verses of the Gita without the help of a teacher. Otherwise, you will be like the man who brought a horse before one who asked for ‘Saindhava’ when he was taking his food. ‘Saindhava’ means ‘salt’ as well as ‘a horse’.
Study of the Gita alone is sufficient for the purpose of daily Svadhyaya (scriptural study). You will find…


Glory of the Gita
The Gita is a unique book for all ages. It is a book that comes under the category of Prasthanatraya, the authoritative books of the Hindu religion. The Gita is the Immortal Song of the Soul, which bespeaks the glory of life. The instructions that are inculcated by Lord Krishna are for the whole world. It is a standard book on Yoga for all. The language is as simple as it could be. Even a man who has an elementary knowledge of Sanskrit can go through the book. It deals with the four Yogas, viz., Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Raja Yoga and Jnana Yoga.
The Gita is the cream of the Vedas. It is the essence of the Upanishads. It is the universal scripture for all people of all temperaments and for all times. It is a wonderful book with sublime thoughts and practical instructions on Yoga, devotion, Vedanta and action. It is a marvellous book, profound in thoughts and sublime in heights of vision. It gives peace and solace to the souls who are afflicted by the three fires (Taapas…
