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.

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 …
