20th July 2013 – Saturday – Spirituality
“It will be a good topic if each one speaks a little about how they are able to get pleasure in life. It is no secret that we are all after pleasure. What did you try and how much pleasure did you get? Then one can say if one is truthful, so let us listen.”

22nd July 2013 – Monday – Dharma
“We begin with the Purusharthas – the objectives before a man and woman in life. We miss this and it is likely that some people observe a Purushartha which is for a lower degree of persons. So this is also worth considering; are we following Purusharthas or are we transgressing? Just do a little thinking.”

23rd July 2013 – Tuesday – Bhagavad Gita 4.36-37
“You see, one who may apparently look ignorant, who has done a lot of mistakes, so this particular verse says that once real knowledge comes then all these defects move away. Knowledge about reality, knowledge about ultimate, these all we don’t posses. We got knowledge about moneys, all kind of currency notes and things of that kind, but true knowledge doesn’t come and as a result it doesn’t help till the end. See the example is given of how higher knowledge can burn off anything. This kind of knowledge is of that category. If you get that understanding then all the great writings, books and authorities have no meaning.”

25th July 2013 – Thursday – Artha
“We are discussing about Artha. Artha which we take as money, pleasure, of monetary things- In fact that is the most important thing as a motivation, but unfortunately it leads to problems; we want more, it creates quarrels, but that we don’t understand. So this is the second kind of motivation which troubles us all our life.

26th July 2013 – Friday – Yoga Sutra 2.9
“So we are discussing about ‘Abhinievsa’ , the most difficult of the Kleshas. The sense of ‘I’. Even the wisest person can’t get over it. You see he has to bring the ‘I’ in any discussion, any claims, he can’t clearly escape that.”
