Buddhahood, Krishnahood or Christhood: Blessed States

  Jesus, Krishna and Buddha were persons: they had a human body, they ate, drank and led a life like any other person.  Yet basically, they were different from other human beings.  The world of names and forms is not the ultimate reality of existence.  The same existence has many different layers interconnected in a […]


Meditation is the state of blessedness or Godliness that shines forth when all distractions of the mind have dissolved away.  Distractions may be of innumerable forms.  Excitements, sadness, different moods, thoughts, emotions and other disturbances are the causes of a distracted mind.  Desire is the root cause of any form of mental distraction.  It engenders […]

Religion: A Map of the Inner Journey

A map is not the destination, a plan is not the house, a sign-post is not the town – similarly, religion is not God.  A map, a symbol or a plan has to be read and understood.  The plan for a building cannot be read by anyone save an expert, an architect, engineer or contractor.  […]

Think about it . . .

The human body, which is composed of senses, organs, tissues, muscles, nerves, arteries, bones and various other things, is one of the most complex and wonderful creations and has always baffled even the most brilliant scientists.  Each of its constituents is a wonderful world by itself.  Let us take the example of the cell.  It […]

The whole world is aflame!

The sun is burning.  It is aflame since time unknown to man, and it is burning to give life to the earth and other planets.  Without sunlight, life is not possible and there would be only darkness.  The planets would have been cold and lifeless, nay, they would perhaps have been inexistent!  The ancient seers […]

The Ten Senses

We see and understand the world by the mind through our ten senses.  The process of perception and knowledge is a quick, complex and marvellous one.  Light plays the greatest role in exposing the world to our mind.  Images of the world travel as waves through the eyes, where the retina plays an important role […]

Do not sleep away your life

If a person has lived for seventy years, he has spent nearly twenty years of his life sleeping.  During sleep, man is supposed to contact the source of energy which enables him to continue with his usual activities.  Also, when the body and the mind are relaxed by sleep, the door of the ten senses […]
