Being Content

How to be content? If you are not content, it means you have some unfulfilled desires. Right? Do you have the faith that these desires will be fulfilled? If you do, then there is no problem, your mind will become calm and contentment will dawn. For many people this is not the case. They have […]

Make the Moon Smile!

Nature has taken 4.5 billion years of evolution to set the stage for the drama of Human Life. A planet colliding into Earth, Meteor bombardment for more than 20 million years, volcanic eruptions for longer than that, Ice ages lasting 100 million years or more, the dinosaurs being destroyed after being on the planet for 165 […]

A Week of Bingeing!

Dinesh and I had been having a super healthy diet and exercising at the ashram gym almost everyday for 40+ days. So when we were invited to address the students of Maharashtra Vidyarthi Sahayak Mandal (An old educational institution, estb. 1927) in Poona for their commencement day, we jumped at the opportunity to go gallivanting around Poona and […]

He was holding 2 beautiful lotuses in His hand and suddenly He said see you can smell a fragrance from these lotuses. You normally don’t get any smell from […]

Happy 59th!!

Gurudev will have taken 59 trips around the sun today. This year, He almost played a trick on all of us. It was originally “planned” that He would fly in on the 13th of May from Germany to Bangalore. So neither the devotees in Germany, nor the ones in India could be with Him on […]

Abhiramism!

I keep telling people to do something new. So I decided to do something new. I started to learn how to use Final Cut Pro, the film editing software for the mac. For Abhi’s birthday I made him a video. Mayur shot the video on a cell phone, the music is by Prasanna and the editing is […]

The Right Path

Recently I was asked a question, “How do I know the path I have chosen is right for me?” You have to make it the Right path. When do you need to make a choice? When you have two or more options, and all those options are equally good. If any option is even just […]
