Yoga Kshememiti Pranapanayoh

The physical world around us is lifeless. This is like a stagnant pool of water. The karmic initiative is like the flow of water. Those who are going to stir this pool are likely to have mud mire all over their body. "What do we seek in it? What do we get from this? "What will remain with us finally? "What do you want to be freed from? Without a sensible answer to these questions, we do stir up the world. We strive to reach the unattainable. We strive to get possession of things for our pleasure. But it is only an endless and futile wait for joy and comfort and never ending company of sorrow. Ultimately it is nothing but the practice of endurance.
There is one goal for the life of mortals. We want to secure things of joy and keep them from getting lost. To come into the possession of things is called Yoga. Protecting these things with us is called as Kshema. The aspirations and assumptions of the human beings have been optimized in the words of Shruti.

Lord Krishna & Bhagavadgeetha Author : Sugunendra Theertha Swamiji

Lord Krishna & Bhagavadgeetha

Examining the incarnation of Lord Krishna by the point of view of the import of Shrimad Bhagavadgeetha and looking at Bhagavadgeetha in the light of Krishna Avatara is one and the same though they seem dissimilar superficially. To appreciate the fine distinction and the underlying similarity needs careful consideration.
Lord Krishna who teaches Bhagavadgeetha to Arjuna is the same Lord who exhibited all his Leela to the world in the incarnation of Krishna. "When he dons the role of Geethacharya, we tend to assume that he is somewhat more of the spiritual world than Gopala Krishna of Nandagokula. This is not possible for everyone to trace the identical philosophy in the meaning of Bhagavadgeetha and the earthly manifestation of Krishna incarnation...Read more



Who do we love for Author : Raghothamachar Bidarahalli

Who do we love for

Who do we love for?
'A cup of coffee, or a cup of tea', don't they look harmless and simple habits? But in reality, they are not. Our habits have far reaching consequences. We want coffee and we want tea, so thousands of hectares of land of the primeval forests have been converted into coffee and tea estates and it has encouraged planters to encroach the forest and destroying habitats of wild life. The habit of just a smoke has led thousands formers adopt monocultures of growing tobacco in thousands of hectares of land leading to loss of fertility of the soil. Vast resources of joint stock companies enter the media and lakhs of news papers are printed and reach our houses at the pittance of a price.
Hence the trees that go into making paper are given preference in place naturally growing...Read more

His Holiness Vidyamanya The quiet Crusader & a spiritual colossus

Kindness personified

Shri Vidyamanya wouId not hesitate to erupt into precipitate anger when any outrage was committed or likely to be committed against the Orient. Especially, he had no tolerance for those who pretended to be great thinkers and passed for being so, in the public arena and tried to trespass on the on the sanctified field of the orient with their hypocritical and immature thoughts. He was ready to take any one head on, on that account.
But his features would melt into an affectionate smile when he happened to meet people who have proven commitment to Dharma in whatever measure possible to them...Read more
