If you have held a child in your lap,
tenderly, warmly, feeling yourself flow
into your child, feeling yourself melt
into your child,
that is how you, too, are being held, always.
Your child also holds another child,
a future child who is eternally present,
in his or her lap.
And that child holds a being,
living, evolving, eternally present,
in his or her lap.
And what holds you in its lap
is being held by… Continue

Getting out of Samsara
CHENNAI: Every human birth is an opportunity to strive for salvation and this truth is reinforced emphatically in the lives of saints.

We have to get rid of the consequences of our actions if one has to transcend the cycle of Samsara.
Saiva Siddhanta points out that every act (good or bad) of an individual is recorded and the consequences (joy… Continue

The harvest season is a festive season all over the… Continue

As Srila Narayana Maharaja told the story herein, he was unsuccessfully trying to hold back his tears.

Show me the way, Lord.
I am always your student.
I am always in love with you.
I am always willing to change myself
to follow the deepest promptings
that you have planted in my heart.
Show me not the answer,
show me the right questions
to ask. Show me what is right
and I will try as best I can
to do it. I will fail, often.
If I ask for something that does not help me,
show me the error, and lead me to that
which helps… Continue

Garuvel treasured this spot for its remoteness from the prying eyes of his family and the family’s servants. Little finches nested in the stately spires, and Garuvel watched them land and disappear twittering inside the moist

If you have asked yourself the question
“why am I so crazy”?
the answer is simple.
You are crazy with grief.
Deep down inside,
you are like one attending a funeral,
tearing your clothes,
bewailing your loss.
“But what have I lost, to be so crazy?”
Something infinitely precious,
something you love so ferociously
that even to remember it consciously
would set you to rending your hair,
again and again.
There is a… Continue
