29th June 2014 – Sunday – Asteya
Taking things that belong to us and taking things that don’t. Now unfortunately, the desire is to take things that don’t belong and we feel greedy. Behind that, naturally there is this feeling that I am taking something that doesn’t belong to me. And that is a feeling that keeps on growing. The other feeling that I should have cultivated is to (give) things that belong to me; do some work and let the benefits go to the other person, and like that. But we don’t do like that. We hate. I know of good people who do good work and hand over the benefits to people who deserve and they don’t even let others know. Many years later the fact is revealed. I would consider that as a better way of giving away rather than holding things that don’t belong to me, but to which I falsely try to hang on to.”

30th June 2014 – Monday – Artha
Dharma , Artha . Kama, Moksh, these are called as the purusharthas. In the human mind they are set, so they keep on working; we want more money and then more. How to use it is nobody’s concern. So we have this very important word, Artha.”

1st July 2014 – Tuesday – Bhagavd Gita 7.7
The poem is, today is the first day of the month and a lot of mishaps are supposed to happen. We may not be able to get more rich, not earn more and what not. But difficulties will come, we have to face. Facing is the purpose behind existence. Everyday a lot of new things happen, not pleasant. We have to carry on. If you want the world to change, it will never change. You have to just carry on. We have to accept and just carry on, that is the main idea.”

3rd July 2014 – ThursdayKama
“See we are creatures of faith. That rules our life. So we cannot miss it. See everything to us is ultimately faith. We should go on encouraging it, not discouraging. So long as the faith is strong, the world will move on as it should. This is the message. “
