Goodbye 2013, Welcome 2014 !!


Let us bury the old and and give birth to something new - new hopes, new aspirations, new ideas, new values and new resolutions. The old goes and the new comes in. The snake slips out of the old skin and comes out with a new skin. It feels fresh and new. It is a process of rejuvenation and a rekindling of new energies and new life. Just see, the goose has come out of the bottle. It has always been out and it has never been in. This is what is called “thinking out of the box”

There are three kinds of forces that are acting on our lives. And these three forces are: Pull, Push, and Stretch. The pull and push forces are from the outside. They are acting on us from the outside. These are coming from the society, parents, teachers, etc. The stretch force is individual. It is arising from within. It is not from outside. It is not an external force. It is an internal force. It helps us to make new resolutions and act on those resolutions. It helps us to create new milestones and move ahead of the old ones. The old year stands for “old milestones” and the new year stands for creating “new milestones”. 

The new year 2014 is also important because it is an election year. A new leadership and a new government is going to come into power. Please remember that all power is for a prayer. All desire is to move towards divinity. And all energy is to move towards Enlightenment. Therefore, all political power is to create an ecosystem that aims at a holistic growth. All political power is just to serve the people with better governance. The new year 2014 is, therefore, a turning point in the political system of the country. It has to be the government of the common people. 

Let us look into the numerology of the new year 2014. When we sum all these numbers the number that comes out is number seven (2+0+1+4=7). The number seven is a very important number. It is a number of change and transformation. There are seven days in a week. There are seven colours in a rainbow. There are seven energy centers (Chakras) that continuously change and transform our being. In Chinese culture the number seven is a combination of Yin and Yang, and represents harmony. In the Vedas and Upanishads there are seven sages (Saptarishis) who are the agents of change and transformation. The new year 2014 is, therefore, a year of change and transformation. Let us make new resolutions and make them happen.

Glass, Half Full or Half Empty

The reality exists and we all perceive the reality. What is true reality? Nobody can give the exact answer. Each person has his own reality. And, therefore, each person has his own expression. The reality is one but the perceptions could be many. The reality is one but the expressions could be many. Every one perceives reality in his own way. Every observer observes reality is his own way. Every perception is relative to the one who is perceiving. Every observation is relative to the observer. The one who is perceiving and the perception are not two different things. The observer and the observed are not two different things.


Is the glass half full or half empty? This is a common phrase that we use to know an individual’s worldview. This is a common phrase that we use to know an individual’s point of view. In the above situation, every individual’s worldview could be different. One may argue and say that the glass is half full and this expression may indicate optimism. And another ma…

The Mahabharata : In a Nutshell !!

There are three great characters in the Mahabharata. All the other characters are just by-products of these three characters. Duryodhana, Arjuna, and Krishna are these three main and great characters. To me, Duryodhana represents the Unconscious. He is a metaphor for the Unconscious. Arjuna represents the Conscious. He is a metaphor for the Conscious. And Krishna represents the Supreme Conscious. He is a metaphor for the Supreme Conscious. He is representing the Supreme Consciousness. When the ray of the Supreme Consciousness passes through the prism of the mind, the prism of the mind manifests the Supreme Consciousness into the Consciousness and the Unconsciousness.

To make things simple, let us understand this by way of an example. Let us suppose that the Unconsciousness is like darkness and the Consciousness is like the light. And the one that joins these two and still remains beyond is called the Supreme Consciousness. According to the psychologists the Unconsciousness is far far …

And when the son meets the father !!

We all know the story of the Buddha that he went in search of knowing himself. He went in search of enlightenment. And in the process he left everything behind - his own family, his father, and his kingdom. In the past there was this tradition of renunciation. One has to give-up everything in order to attain to enlightenment. One has to give-up oneself in order to become a Siddha. Siddhartha was a prince. He was the son of a king Śuddhodana. Siddhartha had all the comforts and luxuries that one can imagine. And since childhood he has seen only one-side of life, the life of all comforts and luxuries. And he had no idea about the other side of the life of poverty and deprivation. And when he had grown-up, the side which was absent and suppressed started attracting him in the form of renunciation. This is a common psychology of life that a thing which has been absent in life, shall soon start dominating its presence. The one that we suppress will try to surface with a greater force. If …
