Comment on Challenging the idea of detachment by Shyam kishore das.

Real detachment is being selfless. Real selflessness is love. False selflessness is the attempted negation of selfishness.

Seeing the essence amongst Shia Muslims
I was just commenting earlier today on another blog about Saragrahi, or one who constantly seeks the essence. This paramount principle is vital for any spiritual aspirant of any spiritual tradition in the world.


Overcoming negativity through positivity
This is so so beautiful. Thank you very much for sharing. Very profound and incredible wisdom in that poem.


Learning gratitude from family
Transcendental science is so mystical and intangible unless one has had a higher realized experience. Can one convince someone to have faith simply by logic and argument? Is it possible to convince a faithless person about a higher reality beyond the physical laws of material nature? Only one with faith understands how pleasure and inner fulfillment can being a by-product of unadulterated selflessness. Isn’t this counterintuitive? How can one achieve happiness which is experienced by the self, by being utterly selfless and grateful? This is the magical reality of transcendental science.


Choosing a guru
There are volumes to be learned from the life of Radhanath swami. One such volume is the nature and characteristics of how great souls approach a bona fide spiritual master for initiation into Guru parampara.


Srila Prabhupada – the epitome of humility and compassion
Every time I finish the Journey Home, I pick it up and can’t help but read it again and again. The instructions, and the personal story, and of course the personal connection has magically created a wonderful bond to Srila Prabhupada and the rest of our Guru Parampara.

  36. Usually all of us pray for material things like wealth, good job, nice spouse, etc and we also make deals saying that if we get what we ask for, then we will donate coconuts or feed brahmins, etc. But that is not what we should pray for. We should pray out of love and a sense of gratitude. We should pray for his love and blessings.
