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 !!

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 …

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…

A Mathematical Expression of Enlightened Leadership

I was just wondering if Enlightened Leadership can really be expressed by way of a mathematical expression. An object is a subset of the subject. There is no reason why it can not be expressed. There has to be a way to express it mathematically. The whole objective reality can be expressed mathematically. I really do not find a problem anywhere.

There are two dimensions to the existence. One is a horizontal dimension that exists in time. The whole of history, Itihasas, and the Puranas are part of it. And all these are full of symbolic and non-symbolic expressions. The other is a vertical dimension which does not exist in time. No matter we do what, this can never be expressed in terms of mathematics. This can be expressed only by way of metaphors. The Vedas and Upanishads are expressions of this timeless dimension.

It is utterly wrong to say that the door of the divine does not exist for a person who thinks in terms of mathematics. No, existence does not behave it that way. There has …
