  • SADHANA (SPIRITUAL PRACTICES-V) –Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

    Only a conscious, alert and dynamic person can get bored; a dull and inert person does not. If you get bored, it indicates you are more alive and human. It is a sign that you are growing, that you are evolving.

  • The Torch of Attention— The Mother, Sri Aurobindo Ashram

    It is exactly as though you had what is called “a torchlight”, a small beacon-light in your head at the place of observation.

    Liberation from Habits

    There is no doubt in it that almost everyone in this world has one or other bad habit…Don’t we all have? Like, many people have the bad habit of smoking.

  • Mind, Body & Spirit

    How do you experience nature?
    When I go out to sit on my veranda, there are two trees that seem to welcome me. I sit down and soak up the sunshine and commune with my trees. It feels like I am embraced and absorbed by and sheltered within them. I become centered and grounded and connected to a deep inner wisdom and knowing. If there’s a problem I’ve been pondering, the solution comes

  • What’s Spirituality?

    Several years ago after I presented a workshop entitled “Spirituality at Work: Because You Can’t Leave Home without You” I got a phone call from someone who went on to ask, “How can I implement spirituality in our organization?” My response was simple. “You can’t.

  • How to choose your guru— Swami Sivananda

    If you find peace in the presence of a Mahatma (great soul), if you are inspired by his speeches, if he is able to clear your doubts, if he is free, from greed, anger, and lust, if he is selfless, loving, and I-less, you can take him as your Guru.

  • The Spiritual Quest: A Most Fruitful adventure

    As there is a category of facts to which our senses are our best available but very imperfect guide, as there is a category of truths which we seek by the keen but still imperfect light of our reason, so according to the mystic, there is a category of more subtle truths which surpass the reach both of the senses and the reason but can be ascertained by an inner direct knowledge

  • The beautiful and mystical river (adapted)— Kenneth J. Willers
