A Woman of Substance


You were Shiva’s Shakti.
You were Vishnu’s Lakshmi. 
You were Rama’s Sita. 
You were Krishna’s Radha. 

You have taken many Avatars. 
You have played many roles. 

When needed you became Durga. 
When needed you became Chandi. 
When needed you became Kali. 

You also helped the God’s to destroy the evil. 

How many Avatars you have? 

You are a mother. You are a sister. 
You are a wife. You are a friend. 
You are many more in just one. 

Past times are past times. 
You are nothing less in the modern times. 

You take care of the home - a sweet home. 
You take care of the kids. 
You take care of the office work. 
You maintain harmony between the home and the office.

You are a woman and yet you have achieved the highest. 

You excelled in art. You excelled in science. 
You excelled in technology. You excelled in politics. 
And you also excelled in spirituality. 

A man is incomplete without a woman. 
A man is half without a woman. 

You are not a robot and not a machine. 
Because, you have the highest emotional quotient. 

How do you do all this? Amazing !! 

You are truly an Ardhanarishvara
And you are a woman of substance. 

To all women, all over the world. 
A Happy International Women’s Day !!

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.

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 …

Emotional Quotient and Spiritual Quotient

Let us talk of the whole structure of our being. At the periphery of the being are our thoughts. This layer is of positive thoughts and negative thoughts. This is the mind of the being. This is an intellectual layer of the being. This layer can be purified through mindfulness and awareness. This layer can be purified through the process of Dhyana or meditation. This layer is called the Intellectual Quotient (IQ) of the being.

There is a layer below the intellectual layer. A layer below this is called the emotional layer. This is the heart of the being. This layer has negative emotions and positive emotions. And this layer can also be purified through mindfulness and awareness. The energy at this layer can be purified through the process of Dhyana or meditation. This layer is called the Emotional Quotient (EQ) of the being.
Emotions, thoughts, and actions are not three different things. They are three different forms of the same energy. The emotions are moving in the heart. The though…
