My Stories
In search of the divine truth

Being conscious of ourselves and others is as simple as our everyday chores — if only we are receptive to hear the echo and experience of things around us.

We are more than cogito, ergo sum

Just think about it. We are all enamoured by our senses, be it sight, smell, touch, hearing and taste.

The inner precinct of our self

The definition of conscious awareness as being the “inner precinct of mindfulness,” is simple, yet composite.

The essence of reason & truth

Reason, it is rightly said, is a sightless guide. This is simply because it pulls and diverts our attention away from the truth, whatever there is to it, rather than towards it.

The cause and effect of karma

The dictionary defines character as the embodiment of mental, emotional and moral qualities distinctive to the individual. Our ancient philosophers defined it as karma — or, action, work, or deed.

The light and sound percept of our being

We all know that there is light, radiant and subtle, in our natural world.

The harmony of balance and life

Harmony pervades the universe — right from its principal foundations in space, time and matter to its highest expressions in the realms of our mind.

What you sow in your mind you reap

The best thing we’d all do, in the turbulent times that we now live in, is to cultivate our mind with a reflective sense of “attached detachment” and vice versa.

All of us go through cheerful and difficult situations, not just circumstances, in life. It is a simple equation — in the midst of some highs, there ought to be some lows too, right? Yes, indeed.

The moral groundwork of life

It is argued that the great philosophers Plato and Aristotle articulated their moral viewpoint within, and not outside, of Greece, where they lived right from their childhood.
