Goddess Laxmi

I invoke Shri Lakshmi, who has a line of horses in her front, a series of chariots in the middle, who is being awakened by the trumpeting of elephants, who is divinely resplendent. May that divine Lakshmi grace me.

Dharma and Sampradaaya

A word may have different meanings in different languages. For example 'terima' means 'do you know' infamil and 'your mother' in Hindi. But the meaning of the word must always be understood in the language in which the sentence is spoken, otherwise a lot of misunderstanding can result. Let us try to understand the words 'Dharma' and 'Sampradaayaa' in their true meaning. These are words of the Sanskrit language and so their true meaning too should be understood as meant in that language.

Not an Idol – an Ideal

The word worship has been badly misunderstood to be a mere ritualistic exercise of no significance to a person living dynamically trying to fulfill his ambitions and seeking success in the world. Worshipping God and seeking His grace seems to be a mere blind belief meant only for escapists and failures. However, true worship is not a mere ritual, but an attunement with the ideal, that one invokes through one‘s thoughts, words and deeds.

Krishna and Radha

Every aspect of Krishna and His deeds is pregnant with deep mystical symbolism, indicating the highest Truth. Consciousness is the pure Self, the sentient Life Principle which enlivens one's material equipment to function in their respective realms. Consciousness is the very Subject of all experiences and therefore cannot be objectively experienced.

Dharma (himsa tathaiva cha)

Personally, I am no advocate of violence. But violence, too, has its rightful place in life, life does not preclude death. The average Indian has been moulded into a particular national mentality of quixotic tolerance. His attitude is shaped into its distinct pattern by the ideologies and moralities preached in our national literature. And no single work in our classics has gained such a wide influence on our people as the Bhagawad Gita: and in, this century, no other single message had such a universal appeal to our countrymen as the single line, "Ahimsa Paramo Dharmah" -- "Non - Violence is the greatest Dharma."

Attrition of time

Wear and tear is natural for everything that is constantly in use. Even mountains must erode and crumble to the level of the earth as the fleeting steps of time march down its slopes. Not only gross substances in the outer world suffer thus from change but even our inner emotions must slowly decay. The law of diminishing utility in economics amply explains this phenomenon of erosion even in our mental life and this is not all.

Mission and Vision

God alone does nothing. He is aboktha. Man must strive to improve the world. Man alone, also, would not be able to do anything. He needs the blessings of things which are called God - the blessings of nature.

Immortal Values

Civilization flourishes with the promotion of culture, but when the cultural values deteriorate, the civilization of a society breaks down, as we have known from the fall of the Egyptian, the Greek and the Roman civilizations. The great religious masters of India, using their own ingenious efforts, have time and again revived the philosophical and religious values for which India stood and thereby arrested the deterioration of the culture.

Let us be Hindus

A Hindu Swami to talk. A Hindu temple for its background. A crowded hall of a Hindu audience, and the subject for discussion. " Let Us Be Hindus." Strange! It sounds like a ridiculous paradox and a meaningless contradiction. I can very well see that you are surprised at the audacity of this sadhu (swami)!
