Some thoughts about the Divine

Posted on April 26, 2009 at 4:03pm 0 Comments

Some thoughts about the Divine, God, eternal truth, or the many names by which it is called. Why think about God? Thinking about something gives us an opportunity to use our own intelligence, to arrive at more clarity about any given topic, isn’t it. Intelligence is the greatest gift of God. To use it instead of believing something blindly is not a sin. Do not let others mislead ourselves into believing that.Thinking about something need not necessarily mean coming up with the right answer. It… Continue

Remembering The Ashram

Posted on February 27, 2009 at 5:41pm 0 Comments

Truly its been a revival for me to come to this community and this site and to be in the company of fellow yogis like you. There I have to correct myself because when I compare myself with you all I see the difference. All of you are adepts and teachers of yoga running your own ashrams and studios while the last class of yoga I might have taught at the Sivananda Yoga center in Trivandrum Kerala may have been fifteen years back. Nevertheless in Yoga there is no comparison and the first breath of… Continue

WHAT IS ENLIGHTENMENT?

Posted on February 26, 2009 at 4:08pm 0 Comments

First of all let me say that I am enlightened hehehe. When I say that I mean that all of us are enlightened. Otherwise we wouldn’t be able to communicate would we? There is a light within us that makes it possible for us to be aware, to know, to think, to remember and be active through the body mind and senses. That light or awareness makes it possible for us to sleep, dream, and to wake up from sleep, to a new day with all the memory of the previous days of our life in continuity. That light… Continue

God Is All

Posted on February 25, 2009 at 6:41pm 0 Comments

God is all that we can imagine him to be,

And he can be just beyond that imagination.

He can be gentler than the gentlest breeze,

And more fierce than the hurricane.

He is the Lord of creation,

But is also a lady.

He is simpler than the simplest,

But more complex than complicated.

Smaller than the smallest,

Yet larger than the largest.

Closer than the closest,

But further than the farthest.

Friend to a friend,

Father to a… Continue
