16th June 2013 - Sunday - Santosh “A man who has contentment is always happy. He doesn’t run after more and more. others might call it less, but for him it is enough. Great men in Indian history were all contented. Raja (King) Janak did not think of starting a war for more and more territory. He believed in God and he believed in the situations that would always do good to him. All his life he was very happy. Tilak, Ghandiji, all are the examples. They were able to do a lot. Contentment towards property, towards family, towards money, towards relations, towards situations, all this is required. There is a recent example in our Couples’ Class, a young man came, handsome, nice, good looking and a well placed person in life. And the person with whom he got married, she was practically blind; they got married, and came to know only later on in life. But he had accepted that if they both are there together -fine, and he was totally contented. He didn’t think of anything else, never objected to anything in life and they are living very happily. Whatever you are, God always provides everything. Just live within that.” 17th June 2013 - Monday - Upeksa

1st June 2013 - Saturday - Acceptance "See our topic is- ' uncertainties in life, ' it applies to all of us. Things are happening and we don't know why, they will happen in the future also, the only logic is accept them and carry on. Intellectually it is very difficult to accept, we want to correct them. The truth is , life is very large and we can't dictate. We are too small, so as we are living, things happen and you have to just face them. Don't waste your time trying to change. This is a principle that has come down right from the earliest times, the words are- Charaivah itti- keep on the move, don't argue. I don't know if this kind of ancient thinking has any meaning for us." 2nd June 2013 - Sunday - Aparigraha

25th May 2013 - Saturday - Buddha Purnima "I don't know whether we like this idea of Some people wishing us 'Good Morning'. Some people get irritated. What is good in the morning? We like the same old ways and don't suggest any changes, but these are different views. But what would be the expression that comes if we see someone new in the morning, we would like to wish someone 'good'. That is the custom. In old India they would say 'Namaste'. In present culture, it is, 'wish you a good morning'. The point is whether we find these kinds of statements good, or is it just a waste of time. What are your views?" 26th May 2013 - Sunday - Brahmacharya

18th May 2013 - Saturday - Way of Life "There is a very good sentiment expressed in our in Indian culture, "Sarve Jana Sukhinah Santu"- May everyone be happy. It is a universal statement. Constantly feeling that way, talking, acting, doing. Now, rarely do we have these feelings, we do say, 'Good morning', but that is the end. To carry it further, to think well, to do something, this we are not doing. It is worth considering, whether we can maintain this kind of thought all the time."

11th May 2013 - Saturday - Suffering and Happiness “Such terms we use often – ‘Good Morning’, ‘Happy Day’. Throughout the day we use such words but what is the meaning? Do we mean it? Are we happy when we are told we are happy? In fact, our mind remains the same. We are unable to knock out that mind and basically yoga is to knock out that mind – remain stable, accept life and respond, do your duties. These are the instructions given. But in our day-to-day life, we want the excitement and momentarily we get excited, again we are in a depressed state. We have to recognize this and carry on our duties without getting too excited. This is the message.”

4th May 2013 - Saturday - Inaction "Talk on 'inaction', which is our national trait. If we can avoid something, we will avoid it. We do what we do out of leisure, but we just like to do nothing. There are many things that we all could have done in life, for the good of our own people, but we just don't do. Not that the jobs are very hard. It may be just picking up a paper lying on the road and putting it away, but we don't do it. So inaction has become a trait. This is a bad habit. If we are otherwise free, and are capable, we must carry out actions that are required. It is worth considering, whether we are of that kind - who are trying to do actions as required, or are trying to find out ways and means to avoid actions."

27th Apr 2013 - Saturday - Dr. Jayadeva's birthday celebrations "I'm here and feeling well about others. Its a good day. Wish you all the best." 30th Apr 2013 - Tuesday - Bhagwad Gita 4.13 "There is a description of the creator. Not seen and never involved in our presence and creating, everything's created, the mountains are created , the rivers are created , but we have never seen him do anything. It is a belief. So you have to live on that belief. That there is something which is running the whole show and behind every event. Just that belief is necessary, not to use our intelligence."
