SPIRITUAL HELP

changes, these physical needs will always arise, and miseries will always be

A Congruence of Civilizations or a Clash of civilizations?

There indeed is a conflict of the political policies, political polities and political entities like the nation-States. All the talk of a clash or confluence is restricted only to the political realm. But, there isn't any Clash, Conflict or Confluence of civilizations.

Just a few hours a night. Master would come out of his Kutir promptly at 0400. Swami Vishnu had to be there to walk with Him. After an Assassination attempt, ( a man with an axe) Swamiji and another slept down by His door to ensure nothing happened. Swami Sahajananda said, “ I think Gurudev would snore”, He said,” A lot of saints did.”…

I think just about everyone loves a steaming hot cup of miso soup! With a soothing and mild flavor, miso soup is light and "brothy", not the type of soup that is a meal on its own, so serve as an

Japanese cuisine. This basic recipe is a simple version of the classic

miso soup you'll find…

well. Exploring our breath teaches us about the natural cycles of
