The Broken Glass Cannot Regain its Originality.

"Greetings, dear readers. This piece is dedicated to those who, like a broken glass, have experienced the shattering impact of mental traumas. May these words offer solace and insight on the path to healing and resilience."

“The Broken Glass Cannot Regain its Originality”: – A Metaphorical Exploration of Irreversible Transformation in Relationships.


An examination of the similarities between the irrevocable change of a shattered glass and the intricate dynamics of relationships is presented in this investigation. The key argument is that, like a shard of broken glass, a relationship that has been severely damaged cannot be put back together again. This emphasizes the long-lasting effects of emotional and psychological scars. This study draws on studies from several disciplines, including psychology, sociology, and philosophy, to explain how changes in human relationships are permanent. We hope to shed light on the complexities of healing and adapting following relationship fractures by analysing the limits of repair and the possibility for growth within these altered situations.


The fragility of human relationships mirrors the delicacy of glass, both vulnerable to unforeseen fractures. This article explores the notion that, regardless of attempts at restoration, the original state of a relationship can never be fully reclaimed. Through this metaphorical lens, we embark on a journey through the complexities of emotional trauma and resilience in the realm of human connections.

The Shattered Glass: Symbolism and Reality:

Broken glass is a powerful metaphor for relationships that have reached their breaking points. Relational breakdowns are like shattering glass; they leave behind emotional wounds and a changed environment, just as the shards do physically.

Repairing the Glass: Futility in Restoration:

Repairing a shard of glass requires patience and accuracy, but it will never be the same as before. In the same way, reconciliation efforts in romantic partnerships can help repair damage and restore a sense of closeness, but they can’t undo what’s already been done.

The Dynamics of Transformation: A New Mosaic:

Rather than futilely pursuing an unattainable restoration of the past, acknowledging the irreversible transformation paves the way for the creation of a new, unique mosaic. This mosaic, though different, carries its own beauty and strength, borne from the shared experiences of mending.

Healing and Growth: Embracing the Changed Landscape:

Once you accept that your relationship has changed irrevocably, you may start adjusting to the new reality and rediscovering happiness. Through the process of meeting and conquering hardship, relationships, like shards of glass, may be reassembled into something beautiful. Whether the shift is one way or both ways, it’s important to recognize that the victor will be the one who can forgive and forget wrongs committed in the past in the name of progress. This person’s great depth of character shines through when they put the long-term health of the partnership ahead of their own frustrations. When one or both of you accomplish this, you create the basis for a new, more fulfilling relationship than anything you’ve had before.

The Broken Heart and Mind: Navigating the New Reality:

A shattered relationship leaves an imprint on one’s mind and emotions that can never be repaired. Although scars eventually disappear, they are a constant reminder of the human capacity for renewal and change. The understanding of non-duality and the realization of one’s interconnectedness with all life are also potent therapeutic resources. Since the ego identity is the source of so much pain, this profound insight has the potential to heal old wounds. When people are able to release their attachment to their own sense of identity, they can open themselves up to a more profound feeling of regeneration and healing in the wake of relationship trauma. This manner, our wounds serve as a reminder of how far we have gone and a blank slate upon which to create a more peaceful and interdependent future.


Embracing the Unbroken within the Broken:

In understanding that the broken glass can never regain its originality, we uncover the profound potential for growth, transformation, and resilience within the realm of relationships. By acknowledging the limitations of restoration, we open ourselves to the possibility of creating something new and enduring from the fragments.

The metaphor of the broken glass:

The metaphor of the broken glass provides a powerful lens through which to examine the enduring impact of relational trauma. Through an interdisciplinary exploration, we find that while the shattered glass may never return to its original state, it can be transformed into something equally valuable and beautiful. Embracing the changed landscape of relationships offers an opportunity for growth, resilience, and the enduring strength of human connections.

Though a broken mirror shows a broken image, the reality is unbroken.

The metaphor “though a broken mirror shows a broken image, the reality is unbroken” suggests that even when we perceive something as damaged or flawed, the true essence or reality behind it remains unchanged. In this metaphor, the broken mirror symbolizes a distorted perception or a flawed representation of reality. When we look at a shattered mirror, we see fragmented and distorted reflections, which may give the impression of a broken reality.

However, the metaphor conveys the idea that despite the appearance of brokenness, the actual reality is not affected. It emphasizes the importance of looking beyond surface-level appearances and recognizing the deeper, unaltered truth that lies beneath.

Broken mirror metaphor reminds us not to be solely swayed by external appearances, but to dig deeper to uncover the unbroken reality that exists beyond the surface.

What is it that I could do more of?

What could you do more of?

As I continue on my path of self-improvement, I often find myself thinking about key factors that might have boosted my success and development had I included them sooner in my life. The five main topics I explore are letting go of possessiveness, getting over the fear of failure, engaging in proactive inactivity, harnessing the power of the subconscious mind, and embracing profound philosophical understanding, all of which are informed by my personal experiences. My hope is that the insights gained through this introspection will be useful to those who are also on a path toward greater personal and professional fulfilment.

1. Shedding Possessiveness: My Personal Findings:

In my personal journey, I’ve come to understand that possessiveness, frequently rooted in attachment and fear, holds the potential to be a significant hindrance to personal growth. My experiences have shown that an early liberation from this binding emotion can be transformative, unlocking doors to heightened creativity, enhanced collaboration, and unprecedented personal development.

The negative effects of desires for name, fame, pride, and possessiveness became apparent in their ability to impede positive academic growth. This insight prompted a shift in focus towards a more expansive and enriching life, transcending the limitations imposed by the grasping nature of possessiveness.

2. Overcoming the Fear of Failure and Bullying: A Personal Journey:

Fear of failure is widespread and may paralyze if unchecked. In my own path, this dread, frequently compounded by bullying, has annihilated my confidence and inner strength.

My improvement has come from accepting failure as part of learning. This paradigm change has helped me see setbacks as opportunities for personal and intellectual growth. This viewpoint also helped me overcome bullying’s negative consequences on my self-esteem and agency.

I handle life’s obstacles by seeing failure as a chance to learn and become resilient. By viewing failure as a learning opportunity, I have cultivated both my economical and intellectual skills. This attitude change has increased my ability to succeed and given my path fresh energy, allowing me to overcome obstacles.

Managing my bullying fear has also been crucial to my growth. Knowing that bullying may lower self-esteem has enabled me to seek help, build resilience, and adopt proactive self-preservation measures. Through this process, I have learnt that facing and conquering failure and bullying fears is a sign of personal strength and a step toward overall growth and well-being.

4. How I Discovered to Use My Subconscious Mind’s Latent Potential:

Through my own quest for self-improvement, I have come to recognize the vast latent potential of the subconscious mind. This pool of unrealized potential is the doorway to extraordinary originality, resourcefulness, and introspection. When I think back on my own life, I realize that if I had been exposed to methods for awakening and channelling this dormant potential sooner, it may have made a huge difference. 

In my blogs under “My Journey through Books,” I describe how reading Joseph Murphy’s seminal work “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind” was a watershed experience. This enlightening tome revealed the transformational power of the subconscious mind and the systems that regulate it. As a result, I began engaging in activities like meditation, positive affirmations, and visualizing a successful outcome.

5. A Search for Insightful Understanding:

Teachings like those contained in the Upanishads, which contain deep wisdom, provide a transforming framework for making sense of the complex web of existence. When I consider my own journey, I understand that if I had accepted such profound wisdom earlier, say in my mid-thirties or perhaps sooner, it would have given my life direction and clarity.

It wasn’t until I explored the depths of quantum physics and Non-Duality (Advaita Vedanta) that I realized the ultimate reality, discovered who I really am, and jumped to a whole new level of comprehension. In retrospect, I see that this insight may have been understood sooner, but I was too blinded by my own ignorance to see it at the time. Surprisingly, the path, access to experienced mentors, and institutions were all made available to me, but I let the grip of possessiveness derail me.

Patanjali’s Yoga sutras have the illuminative ability to lead one to a place of inner calm and profound fulfilment by teaching the concepts of justice and non-dual thought, which are essential aspects of Advaita Vedanta. When practiced, these guidelines illuminate the way to inner growth and a more meaningful relationship to the cosmos.


Finding Balance on the Road to Holistic Development: –

As I look on my own personal development thus far, I am keenly aware of the immense difference these five factors could have made in my progress had I embraced them earlier. These are the stepping stones that would have expedited my journey toward holistic growth far earlier: letting go of possessiveness, accepting failure, practicing thoughtful inactivity, engaging the power of the subconscious mind, and immersing oneself in profound wisdom.

Looking back, I realize that my experience might have been much more rewarding if I had learned how to properly counteract bullying. The fight against bullies continues, but it is now armed with facts, strengthened by meditation, and backed by prayers. With this strategy, I feel prepared to face these obstacles head-on.

When viewed through a Vedantic lens, this path to self-awareness is consistent with Advaita Vedanta’s central tenet that the self is the ultimate reality, unbounded by form or content. Adopting these life-altering principles not only helps the adoptee, but also has a ripple effect on those around them. As I continue on my path toward enlightenment, transcendence, and the ultimate actualization of my complete potential, I find new meaning in the teachings of Vedanta.

These musings are more than simply an exercise in introspection; they serve as a guidepost on the path to growth and perfection. Using these discoveries proactively, people may launch themselves on a path of development, breaking through self-imposed barriers to become their best selves. The pursuit of wholeness is timeless, as it is an ongoing adventure into the boundless potential that lies inside each of us.

From Turmoil to Triumph: The Alchemy of Life’s Trials

Are you holding a grudge? About?

What daily habit do you do that improves your quality of life?

Best piece of advice I have ever received.

Principles of Learning & Teaching-Vedic Culture:

Section-9 of Sheeksha Valli, the first part of Taittiriya Upanishad imparts invaluable wisdom on leading a balanced and virtuous life. It encourages individuals to fulfil their duties, seek knowledge, practice virtues, and contribute positively to their families and society. The teachings emphasize that truthfulness, austerity, and the pursuit of knowledge are essential aspects of a meaningful and spiritually fulfilling life.

In this section, the Upanishad conveys: “The Integral Principles of Vedic Education and Propagation.”

  1. Do your duty; learn and teach.
  2. Speak truth; learn and teach.
  3. Meditate; learn and teach.
  4. Control sense; learn and teach.
  5. Control mind; learn and teach.
  6. Kindle fire; learn and teach.
  7. Feed fire; learn and teach.
  8. Be hospitable; learn and teach.
  9. Be humane; learn and teach.
  10. Serve the family; learn and teach.
  11. Procreate; learn and teach.
  12. Educate your children; learn and teach.

Essence of the lines: 1 to 5 is for: ” Brahmacharya Ashrama”(Students).

Essence of the lines: 6 to 9 is for: ” Grihastha Ashrama” (House Holders).

Essence of the lines: 10 to 12 is for: ” Vanaprastha Ashrama” (who are nearing retirement).

Learning and instructing are fundamental to each of the aforementioned 12 duties. The practitioner of any of the above is obligated to learn about it and pass on it with others. He should learn as much as possible to help him achieve his goal of liberation, and he should teach others so that this knowledge will remain in the public domain forever.

Note to the Readers:

Studying and propagating knowledge stand as the bedrock of our mission. Through dedicated study, we empower ourselves with wisdom, enabling us to serve society with greater insight and purpose. Propagation extends this knowledge, reaching wider circles and benefiting the collective. Together, these principles fortify our mission’s commitment to illuminate minds and contribute positively to society’s growth and well-being.

From Turmoil to Triumph: The Alchemy of Life’s Trials

From Struggles to Strength: Lessons in Disguise.

Share a lesson you wish you had learned earlier in life.

Embracing the Veiled Gifts:

In life’s fabric, challenges frequently appear as opportunities. I regret not learning this sooner: it is amid adversity that one’s character is tested and refined. When the ego is crucified, the inner person gets sanctified and reborn stronger, wiser, and more in tune with the universe’s symphony.

Trouble-free upbringing:

I had a trouble-free upbringing throughout my teenage years. Learning began the moment I left the safety and security of my childhood behind and entered the life of adult world: service in Civil Aviation as Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel (ATSEP), married life, social life, and then beyond until the age of 55 years. Beyond the age of 55, lessons learned started bearing fruit through wisdom due to enlightening knowledge gained through books, which I have shared in my series of posts “My Journey Through Books.”

Threads of Adversity: Bullying, Leg-pulling, Betrayals:

My life’s path has been a complex web woven from bullying, leg-pulling, and betrayals. Each new challenge is like painting a new picture in my mind’s eye. At times, it felt like the world was an unyielding furnace, relentlessly heating up and hardening my character. Through these tests, I was able to distil a fundamental realization: that difficulties, no matter how severe, are really just gifts from the cosmic tapestry in disguise.

The Supreme Guidance: Names Fade, Truth Remains:

In the quiet of my thoughts, I was able to pick up on a subtle hint of direction from the Supreme, the Absolute Reality that weaves the fabric of creation. All of these concepts—whether you call them God, the Almighty, Brahman of the Vedas, or the Divine Matrix—are just words for the same thing. The mysterious symphony of probability known as the Quantum Mind is responsible for conducting the cosmic ballet.

With age comes a wealth of invaluable treasures that only time can bestow.

Intuition: The Cosmic Compass:

In the fires of adversity, I discovered the value of listening to my intuition and following the cosmic footprints it revealed. I was able to find my way out of the barriers and into the bright open space of comprehension because of it. When I finally let go and let the Quantum Mind run the show, that’s when I finally felt at peace.

Faith and Gratitude: Keystone Arches to Non-Dual Absolutes:

The gap that separates our limited selves and the boundless expanse of non-dual absolutes can only be traversed by means of the keystone arches of unwavering trust and gratefulness. They are the alchemical elixir that converts dark pain into brilliant enlightenment. Through trials, through tribulations, I learned to bow in reverence to the dual nature of existence, to embrace the dance of light and shadow as the harmonious interplay of a cosmic duality.

The Resonance of Gratitude:

Being grateful puts an individual in sync with the universe’s most fundamental vibrations. A sacred agreement with the cosmos to develop, transcend, and evolve through every test and difficulty. It’s realizing that every setback is really a stepping stone to a larger reward, and that every betrayal is a means to a more intimate connection with one’s true Self.

Threads of Insight: Stardust’s Journey in the Cosmic Loom:

As I make my way across the vastness of space-time, I will carry this knowledge inside the fibres of my being. Sometimes blessings come disguised as difficulties rather than in the form of affluence or glory. The quantum mind, the dance of probability, has taught me to hear the music amid the noise, to uncover the gifts buried in the trials of life.

In conclusion, the lesson learned is to embrace adversity as hidden blessings and express gratitude for the elemental forces shaping our existence.

Walking with Faith and Gratitude- Expressing Gratitude towards the Five Elements:

Steps Towards Cosmic Evolution: 

The Five Elements of the Universe in Eastern Philosophy:

In Eastern philosophy, the universe is believed to be composed of five fundamental elements, each representing a unique aspect of existence. These elements are:

  1. Earth (Prithvi)

  2. Water (Ap)

  3. Fire (Tejas)

  4. Air (Vayu)

  5. Ether (Akasha)

1. Earth (Prithvi): The Nurturing Ground

Honouring the Foundation of Life

In gratitude, I acknowledge the solid ground beneath my feet, the nurturing embrace of Earth. It cradles life, providing stability, sustenance, and a fertile bed for growth. With reverence, I give thanks for the steadfast support that allows existence to flourish.

2. Water (Ap): The Essence of Vitality

Blessing of Life’s Essence

With heartfelt thanks, I honour the flowing streams, the life-giving rivers, and the very essence of vitality – Water. It cleanses, nourishes, and sustains all living beings. I express gratitude for the fluidity that allows life to adapt, to grow, and to find its course.

3. Fire (Tejas): The Illuminating Force

Kindling the Inner Light:

In reverence, I extend my gratitude to the radiant force of Fire. It brings warmth, light, and transformation. It is the spark within, the illuminating force that guides our journey. With deepest thanks, I honour the fire that burns within and around us.

4. Air (Vayu): The Breath of Life

Embracing the Breath of Existence

With a heart full of gratitude, I acknowledge the gentle whisper of the Wind, the Breath of Life – Air. It carries the essence of vitality, the very breath that sustains us. It touches every being, reminding us of our interconnectedness. I give thanks for the life-giving force that permeates every moment.

5. Ether (Akasha): The Boundless Space

Embracing the Infinite expanse

In profound appreciation, I recognize the boundless expanse of Space, the Ether that cradles all existence. It holds the potential for creation, the canvas upon which life unfolds. With deepest gratitude, I honour the infinite possibilities that arise from the vastness of the cosmic canvas.

With gratitude in my heart, I bow to the harmonious dance of these five elements, for they constitute the very fabric of our being and the essence of the universe itself. They remind us of our interconnectedness with all of creation, and for this, I am profoundly thankful.

Unity in Diversity: Panchagni Vidya and Modern Science

Dear Readers, Welcome to a Journey of Enlightenment and Discovery, Where Ancient Wisdom Meets Modern Understanding.

The Panchagni Vidya:

The Panchagni Vidya, or the teaching of the five fires, is found in both the Chhandogya Upanishad and the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, which are two of the major Upanishads in Hindu philosophy.

In the Chhandogya Upanishad (Chapter 5), and in the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad (Chapter 6, Second Brahman), the story involves King Pravahana Jivala imparting the Panchagni Vidya to Swetaketu. This teaching emphasizes the non-dual nature of reality and the interconnectedness of all beings. The metaphor of the five fires is used to illustrate the profound spiritual truths.

 The Upanishads aim to provide deep philosophical insights and spiritual guidance, and the Panchagni Vidya is a prime example of the profound teachings found within these ancient texts.

Swetaketu is asked by King Pravahana Jivala if he has studied the knowledge that leads to the understanding of the One from which all things originate and by knowing which, all things become known. Swetaketu thinks he knows everything; therefore, he answers in the positive. Instead, Pravahana Jivala gives Swetaketu a series of lessons on the self and the interdependence of all beings.

King Pravahana Jivala uses the metaphor of five fires to illustrate his teachings.

He asks Swetaketu to perform a series of rituals involving five fires to demonstrate the oneness of the individual self (Atman) with the universal Self (Brahman). Through this metaphor, he imparts the knowledge that just as different fires arise from the same source (wood), all individual beings arise from the same universal source (Brahman).

The Panchagni Vidya teaches the fundamental principle of Advaita Vedanta, which asserts the non-dual nature of reality, stating that the individual soul (Atman) is ultimately identical to the ultimate reality (Brahman).

Note: The word Vidya in Panchagni Vidya is to be understood as Upasana~ Meditation. Here Vidya does not mean Knowledge.

The Five Fires~ in the Panchagni Vidya are:

  • Heaven
  • Rain God
  • Earth
  • Male
  • Female

The Belief is that the five fires are given the five liquid oblations as follows:

  1. Faith to Heaven: Soma Raja is generated.
  2. Soma to Rain god: Rain is generated.
  3. Rains to Earth: Food is generated.
  4. Food to Man: Sperm is generated.
  5. Seminal fluid to Woman: Newborn emanated.

Here is the story of King Pravahana Jaivali and Svetaketu.

 Svetaketu was son of sage Uddalaka Aruni also known as Gautama too. Well educated and confident of his knowledge. There was a noble, highly learned king of Panchal, during the late Vedic period named Pravahana Jaivali. Svetaketu went to his court for sharing his knowledge in King’s court. The moment Svetaketu arrived at the court, the king received him with due respect and offered him requisite hospitality, being a Brahmin boy and well versed with Vedas and all branches of learning.
The king asked the boy: ” Are you well educated? Have you studied? Is your education complete? Has your father instructed you?”
The boy replied. “Yes, my education is complete, and I am well-read.” Then the King asked some questions. ” Naturally, you are a well informed and able to answer my questions. You are proficient in every branch of learning.” The boy affirmed. King then asked following five questions.

The first question asked by the King:

“Do you know where people go after they depart from this world? When people die, where do they go? Do you know the answer to this question, my dear boy?”
The boy replied, “I do not know. I am unable to answer.”

King then asked second question:

“Do you know wherefrom people come when they are reborn into this world?” The boy said, ” No, I do not know answer of this also”.

The Third Question:

” Have you any idea of the paths along which the Souls ascends, the paths being known as Devayana and Pitriyana? Do you know the difference between these two paths? Why is one distinct from the other?” The boy said, ” I do not know the answer to this question also.”

The Fourth question:

“Why is it that the yonder world is not filled with people and overflowing? Always, the world is able to contain people and it is never flooded with them. What is the reason for this?” The boy said, ” This also I do not know.”

The Fifth question:

” Do you know what are the five oblations that are offered and how the fifth oblation as liquid becomes a human being?”
“The boy said, this too I do not know.
Then the King said, ” Why did you say that you are well read and well instructed? King said ” How is it possible that you are not able to answer even these questions. What made you think that you are well educated. What is that your father has taught, and you are not able to answer these?” Listening this from the King, boy realized that his education was incomplete, and his pride vanished. The boy realized for the first time that it was his wrong idea that he knew everything. Feeling disgraced, he returned home and took his father to task for not teaching this Vidya which could have helped him in answering the questions put by the king. But Sage Gautama himself was unaware of the answers. Therefore, sage Gautama went to the king Pravahana to learn the Vidya. King received with due respect and offered him many gifts. But the sage Gautama refused to accept gifts since he was interested only to be enlightened on the discourse which King mentioned to the boy Svetaketu. King then Commanded him, ” Stay for a long time.” Then King said, O Gautama, before you, this Vidya was never gone to Brahmanas: it is for this reason, that among all people, it was only with the Kshatriya.

Great king imparted the knowledge of the Panchagni-Vidya. The King explained five fires:

The First fire is svargaloka (Heaven):

The Sun is the fuel (sacrificial stick) of this Fire. The rays of the Sun are the smoke, while the day is the flame. The moon is the ember (red hot coal~चिंगारी). The stars are the sparks of this fire. When Agnihotra is performed, the jivas become Soma Raja(moon) and enter svargaloka.

The Second fire is Parjanya.

O Gautama! the god of rain is the sacrificial fire; air is its fuel; the cloud is the smoke. Lightning is the flame. The Thunderbolt is the charcoal. The roars of the fire are the sparks. Soma Raja (Jiva) is the oblation in this fire.

The Third fire is the Earth.

For this fire, the year is the sacrificial fire. Akasha (sky) is the smoke. The night is the flame. The directions are the live charcoals. The directions are the sparks. The oblation in this case is rain. When the rains reach the earth, food is grown.

The fourth is man himself.

His speech(vaak) is the sacrificial fire. His prana is smoke. His tongue is the flame. The eyes are the live charcoals, and his ears are the sparks. Here the oblation is food. From that food the seed of man is born.

The fifth fire is Woman.

The interconnection between man and woman is the live charcoal. The small pleasures are the sparks. The oblation is the seed of man and from this does a new-born emanate.

The particle physics of you 


The Jiva which has ascended to the Heavenly world by the virtue of good deeds descends on the exhaustion of that merit to the earth to take up another life, from heaven in the form of rains. There in the earth, the self enters a food grain growing on a plant and then enters the blood of the male who consumes that food grain and that turns into sperm. Finally, when the seminal fluid enters the female womb upon coitus, the Jiva also enters the womb along with it. In the womb it gets embodied.

**Following section describes the conception of Human being using metaphor of Sacrifice (Yajna~ meditation). The fifth offering mentioned here is the seed of man (Semen) that brings about conception at the end.

 The Ten months in mother’s womb:

Thus, after the fifth oblation, water becomes Purusha known as Man. The foetus lies within the mother’s womb, covered with membrane, for about nine or ten months, and then it is born. [**This is the answer to the fifth question asked by the King Pravahana]

When a person is born, he lives as long as he is destined to live. Then, when he dies as ordained, he is carried from here to the fire from which he came.

 Path of Devayana:

Those who know this (Panchagni vidya), and those who live in the forest, practicing austerities with faith- they go to the path of Devayana(the world of light) From the world of light they go to the world of day; from the world of day to the world of bright fortnight; from the world of bright fortnight to the six months when Sun moves northward [Uttarayana]; from there go to the Sun, from the Sun to the moon; and from the moon to lightning. There someone, not human, receives them and leads them to Brahmaloka. This path is Devayana (path of gods).

 On the other hand, those who live in the village and perform acts of public service, charity, and so on, attain the world of smoke. From there they go to the world of the night; from night they go to the world of the dark fortnight; and from the dark fortnight they go to the world of the six months when the Sun moves to the south. This means that they never attain the world of the year.

 From the six months of the southern solstice, they go to the world of the ancestors, from there they go to the sky. Then from the sky they go to the moon. This is King Soma. This is the food of the gods. The gods enjoy eating this food.

 Living in the world of the moon until the merit (the fruits of his work) is exhausted, he then returns to this world along the same path. First going to the sky, he then goes to air. Having become air, he next becomes smoke. Having become smoke, he then becomes mist. From mist they become a cloud, after which they pour forth as rain. Then they are born as food. To emerge from these is difficult, only if someone or other eats him as food and pours him out as semen can he be reborn. 

Those whose conduct on Earth has given pleasure, can hope to enter a pleasant womb; but those whose conduct has been foul can expect to enter a foul and stinking womb.

But those small and continually returning creatures (like flies and worms) are not to be found on either of these two paths: theirs is a third condition, ” Be born and die” That is why the world up there is not filled up, and that is why a man should carefully watch his actions. On this there is the following verse:

This completes the answers to the five questions.

A person who steals gold, or drinks liquor, or goes to bed with his master’s wife, or kills a Brahmin-these four are lost. Also lost is the fifth- one who keeps company with such people.

But he who knows the five fires remains pure even if he is in the company of these people. He who knows this is pure and innocent, and after death he goes to the world of the good and pure.

The Celestial Region, the Atmosphere, the Earth, Man and Woman- These are the five stages of the Fire which becomes the object of meditation known as the Panchagni Vidya.

By the interconnection, combination and harmonious adjustment of the structure of these five levels of manifestation, birth takes place. This symbiology of Birth is applicable for all organisms in the world. This is theory of manifestation. Every event is Universal event, even the birth of a human. Every birth is to be considered in the light of Panchagni Vidya.

The whole point of this description in the context of the Panchagni Vidya is to describe us how the event of Births happens? What are the stages of the descent of the soul into the physical embodiment? It has to be understood through philosophical point of view. The point made out is that higher realms are activated by the consequences produced by our actions, in turn which become causes of our descent.

Two paths are laid before the soul after death. One is Devayana, the Northern path. It is for those who sought Wisdom. The other is Southern Path~ Pitriyana.

A Single autonomous Process:

Universe and its various constituents are only parts of it, internally connected. The whole universal manifestation is a single process, and it is a continuous process. The process of Births and Deaths are to be explained from this point of view, where all phenomenal experiences are part of this single autonomous process and are connected to ultimate cause. There is some law which works in some particular manner on account of which we are compelled to follow this course of repeated cycle of Births and Deaths, known as transmigration.

The whole universe is our father; the entire universe is our mother:

There are various stages of manifestation. How the birth of an individual takes place, how a child is born? For that, the underlying philosophy or science to be understood. What we the common people know that child is born from womb of the mother. That is true. But the process of birth takes place throughout the cosmos. All the governing forces of nature (of the Universe) are active in the production of a single child.
The whole cosmos is behind the scenes. The Universe is the parent of the little baby. That is the ultimate cause. It has connection with cause of all causes (Causal), by a chain of causal connections.

When the secret is known, no one will say, ” It is my son or my daughter.” It is neither yours neither mine. It belongs to that from where it has come.

It has come from the cells of this Universe. It has not come automatically in the seminal essence of the father or the womb of the mother. A system works here with a process since primordial time. It is the quintessence of every particle of the whole of Nature.
That is why we say:

Brahmanda is in the Pindanda” ~ The macrocosm is in the microcosm.


The Panchagni-Vidya is a meditation [UPASANA], —it is not an outward ritualistic sacrifice; it is a contemplation by the mind in which it harnesses every aspect of its force for the purpose of envisaging the reality.
Existence itself is regulated by the presence of the sun. The sun is the cause of life on earth. But who is the cause of the sun? The sun is also an effect of certain factors, —we may call them astronomical. That vibration is precedent and anterior to what we call the manifestation of even the causal condition of this world. Prior to all this, something else must be there, and prior to that, again, another thing, and so on, so that even our insignificant life in this world, in this physical body, can be said to be completely controlled by factors which are transcendent, beyond the sun and the moon and the stars, and where we go in this manner of tracing our cause back, we cannot know. This is the point driven home into the mind of Gautama by Pravahana Jaivali in the context of the explanation of the Panchagni-Vidya.

Connected Universe:

There is a mutual dependence between the outer world and the inner world of the individual. Our thoughts influence the atmosphere. We must realize that thoughts are vibrations, and it is nonlocal. These vibrations are not isolated activity inside our brain. The vibrations emanate like an aura to certain distance from the body of a person. The distance depends upon the intensity of the intensity of the aura (good vibes~ harmonious thoughts.) Therefore, cumulative effect of the vibrations produced by all the individuals can bring very good result in that environment in return.

2. We are influenced by the environment around us. EPIGENETICS a new subject.
There is a cycle, as it were, a wheel rotating in the form of give-and-take between the gods in the heaven and the human beings here. We give something and we are given back something. Nature gives us what we give to it in the form of our own deeds in this world. We do not get what we do not deserve, and we cannot get, also, what we have not given actually. What we have given, what we have deserved, what we have parted with in the form of a sacrifice, that is given back to us, with compound interest sometimes, according to the law of Nature. On account of this cyclic activity of Nature, in which the individuals get involved through their actions, there is rainfall. So, we can imagine how rains occur.

Exploring the Absolute: A Journey through Science, Philosophy, and Ancient Wisdom.

I’m happy to say that these four books have taught me a lot about the “Absolute”. I think they illuminate science, philosophy, and spirituality. Modern physicists are continuously searching for the “Theory of Everything,” and these works have helped me comprehend.

Each of the books mentioned here, explores different aspects of the relationship between science, philosophy, and spirituality.

The Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra is a pioneering work that draws parallels between Eastern mysticism, particularly Taoism, and modern physics. It suggests that both perspectives converge on a fundamental understanding of reality.

A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking is a seminal work that aims to make complex scientific concepts accessible to a broader audience. It primarily deals with the nature of the universe, its origins, and fundamental concepts in physics, such as black holes and the Big Bang.

The God Equation by Michio Kaku delves into the quest for a “Theory of Everything” in modern physics, which would unify all fundamental forces in the universe. It explores concepts like string theory and the potential implications of such a theory.

Modern Physics and Vedanta by Swami Jitatmananda bridges the gap between ancient Indian philosophy (Vedanta) and modern physics. It attempts to show the similarities in the understanding of reality between these seemingly disparate traditions.

Adding the Ten Principal Upanishads to your reading list is an excellent suggestion. These ancient texts form the core philosophical teachings of Vedanta and provide profound insights into the nature of reality, consciousness, and the self. The Upanishad emphasizes the idea that every individual’s birth is part of a larger cosmic process, and the universe is the ultimate parent of all beings. 

There are fascinating parallels between the concepts in quantum physics, cosmology, and the Panchagni Vidya regarding non-duality:

  1. Non-Duality and Quantum Physics:
    • In quantum physics, the principle of non-duality is echoed in phenomena like entanglement, where particles become correlated and act as a single system regardless of distance. This challenges the notion of separate, independent entities.
    • The uncertainty principle also highlights the inherent interconnectedness, suggesting that attributes like position and momentum cannot be simultaneously precisely known.
  2. Cosmology and Non-Duality:
    • Cosmology, particularly theories like the Big Bang, indicates that the entire universe emerged from an initial singularity—a state of undivided oneness. This aligns with the idea of non-duality, where all phenomena originate from a singular source.
  3. Panchagni Vidya and Modern Science:
    • The Panchagni Vidya, with its teaching of interconnectedness and non-duality, offers a philosophical perspective that resonates with the findings of modern science.
    • The metaphor of the five fires illustrates the interdependence of various elements, reflecting the interplay of forces in the cosmos.
  4. Implications for Understanding Reality:
    • These similarities suggest a converging understanding of reality across different disciplines. The recognition of non-duality implies a fundamental unity underlying the diverse manifestations of the universe.
  5. Bridge Between Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science:
    • The convergence of these concepts showcases the potential for ancient philosophical wisdom, like that found in the Upanishads, to align with and even complement modern scientific insights.

What personality trait in people raises a red flag with you?

Personality Traits as Red Flags: An In-depth Analysis:

This article explores the idea of warning signs in personality by looking at it through the non-dualistic philosophical lenses of Stoicism, Advaita Vedanta, and some aspects of Patanjali Yoga. It draws on my own experiences and musings in order to show how these old wisdom traditions may provide invaluable help in handling complex social situations. Red flag characteristics may be overcome, and harmonious relationships and inner peace fostered via the use of non-dualistic concepts.


The assessment of personality traits is a critical aspect of understanding human behaviour and forming meaningful connections in social contexts. However, certain traits can serve as “red flags,” signalling potential challenges or incompatibilities in relationships. This article endeavours to elucidate the concept of red flag personality traits, shedding light on their significance and ramifications.

Defining Red Flag Personality Traits:

Red flag personality traits refer to specific characteristics or behaviours in individuals that, when observed, may signal potential difficulties or conflicts in interpersonal relationships. These traits can vary widely and may manifest differently depending on cultural, social, and situational contexts. Understanding red flag traits is essential for making informed decisions about forming and maintaining relationships.

Characteristics of Personality That Should Raise a Red Flag.

1. Deficit in Empathy and Emotional Intelligence

People who lack empathy and emotional intelligence may have difficulty comprehending the feelings and requirements of other people and responding appropriately to those feelings and requirements. This might result in misunderstandings, disagreements, and a lack of support from both parties involved.

2. Narcissism and an Excessive Obsession with Oneself 

Narcissistic characteristics include an excessive preoccupation with one’s own interests, an exaggerated perception of one’s own significance, and an indifference to the feelings and needs of other people. These kinds of conduct can stifle the growth of relationships based on mutual respect and appreciation.

3. Behaviour That Is Either Manipulative or Controlling: 

Trust and autonomy may be eroded in relationships when individuals have a tendency to manipulate others and control their behaviour. It is essential to the process of maintaining healthy boundaries to recognize and address these behaviours.

4. Persistent pessimism or negativity in outlook

A continuously pessimistic attitude on life has the potential to have an effect on the general environment of relationships, which can in turn lead to emotional tiredness and interactions that are strained.

 Behaviour That Is Neither Consistent nor Predictable:

People that act in a way that is erratic or unexpected may contribute to the creation of an environment that is unclear and unstable, which can make it difficult to build trust and mutual understanding with one another.

Mechanisms of Psychology Underlying “Red Flag” Characteristics

A. Different Types of Attachment:

It’s possible that different attachment patterns, including anxious, avoidant, or disorganized, all have a role in the development of red flag personality characteristics. By gaining an understanding of these styles, one can get insights into the factors that led to the development of certain harmful behaviours.

B. Early Experiences in One’s Life

An individual’s personality and conduct can be shaped by adverse childhood experiences, trauma, or dysfunctional family relationships, and this can possibly contribute to the development of red flag features in the individual.

Effects on Personal Happiness and Social Connections:

Stress and Discord in Social Interactions

Conflicts, misunderstandings, and strained relationships are among ways in which red flag behaviours can lower the quality of one’s social interactions.
Mental and Emotional Health and Well-Being.

Coping Strategies and Intervention:

1. General Perspective: Widely accepted strategies.

A. Communication and Limit Establishment: 

It is possible to resolve red flag behaviours via open and honest conversation and the establishing of clear limits.

B. Seek Out Expert Advice

 Seeking the help of mental health specialists may be essential when red flag qualities severely affect wellbeing or represent potential damage.

2. Venatic Perspective: Accepting Non-Dualism- Moving Past Dualistic Ideas.

The following guidance is culled from my personal experiences and reflections to illustrate how these ancient wisdom traditions may prove useful when confronted with challenging social settings. Through the use of non-dualistic ideas, red flag traits may be eliminated, and healthy connections and inner calm can be established.

The Stoic Mind and the Control-Lacking Dichotomy:

Stoicism teaches us to see the difference between the things we can and cannot change. When this idea is applied to warning signs, it frees people from the burden of trying to alter the behaviour of others around them.

Advaita Vedanta, or the Philosophy of Non-Duality:

All existence is said to be fundamentally one in Advaita Vedanta. Understanding how one’s actions affect others has been shown to increase both compassion and understanding, especially in the face of difficult characteristics.

Patanjali Yoga: Finding Calm Within

Individuals can learn to respond effectively to demanding behaviours while keeping their own equilibrium by following the methods indicated in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.
Getting Past Warning Signs

Practicing Impermanence toward Consequences

Stoicism advises its followers to maintain a level of emotional detachment from the results of their actions. The burden of waiting for other people to meet our standards is lifted when we do so.

Seeing the Spark of God in Every Living Thing

Advaita Vedanta advocates for the acknowledgement of the inherent divinity in all people. This outlook encourages compassion and understanding, even when dealing with difficult behaviour.


Developing Equanimity with Yoga and Meditation:

Peaceful Relationships and Confidence in Oneself

Incorporating non-dualistic ideas into relationships creates more harmony and understanding, allowing them to grow beyond the constraints of red flag characteristics.

 Remedy for Emotional Distress:

By adopting non-dualistic wisdom, people are able to break free of the hamster wheel of emotional reaction and discover peace in the eternal core from which all experiences arise.

Introspection and the process of changing oneself.

Through the practice of self-inquiry inspired by Advaita Vedanta, individuals embark on a transformative journey. Egoic attachments dissolve, giving way to a heightened awareness of unity. This profound shift in consciousness underscores the timeless wisdom of Vedanta, revealing the underlying essence of existence.

Are you holding a grudge? About?

“Are You Holding a Grudge?”      “NO” 

I can honestly say, as I reflect on my life, that I hold no grudge against anyone. What I once deemed as ‘bad experiences’ were, in truth, valuable lessons that shaped my journey.

This presentation is dedicated to the celebration of JANMASHTAMI, LORD KRISHNA'S BIRTHDAY, and it will take you on a trip through the complex web of resentment with the help of thinkers like Kant and Nietzsche, as well as the ageless advice of the Bhagavad Gita. The pragmatist insights of William James and the everlasting truths of Lord Krishna serve as springboards for this investigation into the heart of forgiveness. 

Introduction: An Explanation of the Nature and Roots of Grudges:

A long-standing bitterness that develops in response to perceived transgressions is known as a grudge. It roots itself in interpersonal connections after being sown by betrayals of trust or failures to live up to expectations. Whether they are founded on actual or imagined wrongs, grudges are frequently handed down from one generation to the next.

The Effects That Keeping a Grudge Can Have on a Person’s Mental Health:

Keeping a grudge has a negative impact on one’s mental health and well-being. It is a breeding ground for animosity, resentment, and emotional misery, all of which contribute to elevated stress levels and the possibility of mental health problems. 

The Imperative to Forgive, According to Kantian Deontology:

The deontological ethics proposed by Kant places an emphasis on obligation and ethical standards. When seen from this angle, the act of forgiving an offense might be interpreted as a moral requirement. Keeping resentment in one’s heart is in direct opposition to the categorical imperative, which states that one must treat other people with respect and decency at all times. According to Kant, forgiving is an act that transcends one’s own personal grievances and serves to sustain human dignity.

The Utilitarian Approach to Striking a Balance Between Feelings and Consequences:

The philosophy of utilitarianism evaluates deeds according to the extent to which they contribute to achieving the goals of maximizing happiness and reducing suffering. It is important to strike a balance between the emotional well-being of the forgiver and the pursuit of greater general pleasure and harmony while practicing forgiveness. 

The Development of Forgiveness as a Virtue in the Context of Virtue Ethics:

 Recognizing forgiveness not as a sign of weakness but rather of fortitude is essential to the cultivation of this virtue. Improving one’s ability for empathy, compassion, and magnanimity is a necessary step in this process. According to this point of view, being able to let go of resentment and forgive a wrongdoing is a sign of moral maturity and reflects an individual’s ability for grace and compassion.

Grudges Change Our Perception and Interpretation.

Grudges greatly affect our perception and interpretation of events. They distort our perception, emphasizing negatives and downplaying positives. This changed view might misrepresent prior acts and intentions, sustaining animosity.

Openness, empathy, and perspective-taking are epistemic virtues.

Managing grudges requires epistemic qualities. Open-mindedness balances many perspectives, providing a more complex understanding. Empathy helps understand another’ intentions and experiences. Epistemic virtue, perspective-taking, helps resolve grudges by revealing the complexity of human interaction and fostering compassion.

The Role of Time in Grudge Resolution:

Time is key to grudge settlement. As time passes, feelings change and fade. This natural process might reduce resentment. Distance from the initial hurt might let forgivers see things objectively. Knowing grudges are temporary emphasizes their potential for healing and progress.

Nietzschean Eternal Recurrence: Breaking the Grudge Cycle.

Nietzsche’s everlasting repetition makes grudge-holding a major issue. It asks if people would tolerate the same experiences, even a grudge, forever. This thought experiment challenges the value of resentment. It implies that releasing grudges might help people overcome negative patterns and adopt a more positive attitude on life.

The Pragmatism of Letting Go:

William James and Forgiveness.

William James’ pragmatism promotes realism in thoughts and deeds. James suggests exploring the real advantages of forgiveness for grudges. He stresses that letting go of a grudge improves relationships, mental health, and societal harmony. James advises weighing the benefits of forgiveness against the costs of bitterness.

Signifying Grudge Resolution Change with Peircean Semiotics.

Grudge resolution is viewed differently through Charles Peirce’s semiotics. Semiotics examines signals and interpretations. Letting go of a grudge can symbolize reconciliation, understanding, and a better future.


Possible Liberation: Ontological Forgiveness Perspectives.

Considering forgiveness from an ontological perspective illuminates the possibility of grudge freedom. Ontology studies being and existence. Forgiveness transforms one’s identity in this scenario. It may release people from resentment, giving them a new sense of self and a free life.

Lord Krishna conveys significant guidance.

Lord Krishna conveys significant guidance on equanimity, especially in the context of forgiving others, in the 12th chapter of the Bhagavad Gita. True dedication, he says, comes from one’s character and not from external observances. Those who can remain equanimous during happy and sad times alike, as well as through the process of forgiving a wrongdoer, are praised by Lord Krishna. This calmness results from knowing the world is temporary and having unshakeable confidence in the Divine. One achieves inner peace by moving beyond opposites and openly welcoming new experiences, including the mending of old grudges. The teachings of Lord Krishna stress the need of maintaining harmony within and unwavering dedication to one’s spiritual path, especially while one works to lessen resentment.

The following works are recommended for the present subject matter: 

The book titled “Forgive for Good: A Proven Prescription for Health and Happiness” authored by Fred Luskin.

Immanuel Kant’s philosophical book titled “Groundwork for the Metaphysics of Morals”.

The work titled “Utilitarianism” authored by John Stuart Mill.

The literary work titled “Nicomachean Ethics” authored by the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle.

The literary work under consideration is “Thus Spoke Zarathustra” authored by Friedrich Nietzsche.

The subject of inquiry in this discussion is the philosophical concept of pragmatism as expounded by the renowned American philosopher, William James.

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel’s seminal work, “The Phenomenology of Spirit.”

The Bhagavad Gita is a timeless philosophical and spiritual text that offers profound insights into various aspects of life, ethics, and spirituality. It provides valuable guidance on how to lead a meaningful and balanced life.

Mastering Time Management: Unlocking Productivity and Balance

Disclaimer: Please read.

Welcome to this article on time management, where I share my personal experiences that have led to more successes and fewer setbacks.

A Real-Time Specialist’s Journey:

In my professional life, I specialised in a position that was extremely real-time reliant and had significant ramifications for the continuity and safety of Air Traffic Services. Because of the time constraints and accuracy requirements of my employment, I had to be always alert and cognizant of the critical value of time. I gained a profound understanding of the importance of time management as a result of this experience, and I can’t wait to share this knowledge with you in the post that follows.

My hope is that by sharing some of my successes and insights with you, I might encourage and inspire you to get started on your own path to better time management. As you read on, I hope you’ll learn new ways to think about time management and gain actionable advice for reaching your goals. Always keep in mind that the time you spend working to become a better you is the time you spend moving closer to achieving your goals. Come with me on this adventure!


In today’s fast-paced world, the ability to effectively plan and prioritise one’s time is essential for success and happiness. To master time management, one must first cultivate a state of physical and mental vitality.

This article goes into the many facets of efficient time management, discussing how ” Pranayama” [breathing exercises], physical exercises, meditation, mindfulness, and the understanding of non-duality can empower individuals to make the most of their time.

Here are the key points of the article:

    • Meditation
  3. The Art of Workplace Balance
    • Mindfulness at Work
  4. Cultivating a Steady Mind
    • Home and Office Harmony
  5. The Power of Non-Duality

The Essence of Energy Management:

The realisation that energy is the basis of productivity is the first step towards effective time management. Any attempt to efficiently manage time will inevitably fail if one lacks sufficient physical and mental vitality. Our capacity to concentrate, make choices, and maintain our level of productivity throughout the day is driven by energy.

Not a great deal. But how to get continuous flow of energy? 

Follow the next step. Practicing Pranayama and other Yoga exercises.

Nurturing Energy Through Wellness Practices:

    • Pranayama (Breathing Exercises)
    • Physical Exercises
    • Meditation

To harness the full potential of time management, it’s imperative to invest time in practices that replenish our energy reserves. This involves a holistic approach that encompasses breathing exercises, physical workouts, meditation, and the powerful art of Pranayama, a vital component of Ashtanga Yoga.


Pranayama, often known as “The Breath of Life,” is an essential part of managing one’s energy levels and is at the heart of many forms of yoga. This ancient practice incorporates conscious and regulated breathing methods that not only oxygenate the body but also infuse it with a continual flow of life. Pranayama allows you to increase your oxygen intake, giving you a steady stream of energy to help you go through your day.

Here are some ways Pranayama can contribute to saving time and providing huge benefit:

  1. Increased Focus and Efficiency: Pranayama can improve concentration and mental clarity. When you can concentrate better, you may find that you accomplish tasks more quickly and with fewer mistakes.
  2. Reduced Stress and Anxiety: Pranayama can help manage stress and anxiety. By reducing these negative emotions, you can save time that might have been spent worrying or being distracted by stress-related issues.
  3. Enhanced Energy Levels: As mentioned earlier, Pranayama increases energy levels by improving oxygen circulation. With more energy, you’re likely to be more productive throughout the day, potentially saving time that would have been spent feeling fatigued.
  4. Better Decision-Making: Clarity of mind, which Pranayama can provide, can lead to better decision-making. Making sound decisions can save time that might have otherwise been wasted on poor choices.
  5. Improved Health: Over time, regular Pranayama practice can contribute to better overall health. This may lead to fewer sick days and more productive hours.

Physical Exercises:

Complementing the benefits of Pranayama, physical activity plays a pivotal role in energy management. Exercise stimulates the release of endorphins, boosting both physical and mental vitality. A consistent exercise regimen ensures that your body is prepared to harness the energy derived from Pranayama.

Recommended Practices: Surya Namaskar.


In conjunction with Pranayama, meditation serves as a powerful tool to rejuvenate the mind, increase mental clarity, and reduce mental fatigue. The tranquil and focused state of mind cultivated through meditation enhances your ability to manage time effectively, all while maintaining a steady wellspring of energy.

All the above exercises are part of “Ashtanga Yoga”.

The Art of Workplace Balance:

Let us go into more depth about how mindfulness might improve machine management in areas where human lives are in the balance, such as aviation, travel, healthcare and others.

The Art of Workplace Balance:

Working professionals typically need specialized knowledge of the dynamics of the workplace in order to master the art of time management. Maintaining focus and dedication to the work at hand requires a delicate balancing act between managing superiors (men above) and subordinates (men below).

Mindfulness at work:

While at the office, one should focus their awareness on tasks connected to their job. Focusing one’s attention mindfully on one’s work not only boosts efficiency, but also improves morale and makes one feel more accomplished. Mindfulness is becoming increasingly important in high-risk fields including aviation, travel, and healthcare etc.

Machine Management in Safety-Critical Industries:

Management of Equipment in High-Risk Sectors:

Mindfulness goes beyond individual efficiency and becomes a subject of paramount significance in these domains because human lives often depend on the effective operation of technology and systems. 

The aviation sector relies on constant monitoring and calculated decisions due to the complexity of aircraft systems and controls. Both pilots and controllers need to pay close attention and stay focused on the task at hand. A slip in concentration even for a fraction of second might have disastrous results. Practitioners of mindfulness can benefit those working in aviation by helping them maintain concentration, lessen stress, and make well-informed judgments.

Safety-sensitive jobs in the transportation industry:

In transportation industries such as those involving railway operation, ship management, and bus driving, require constant focus. Professionals in the transportation industry might benefit from practicing mindfulness to help them stay attentive and act quickly in the face of unforeseen challenges.

Medical Industries:

In the medical field, where technology plays an integral part in patient care, careful consideration of tools and methods is essential. Maintaining concentration on patient well-being, drug administration, and the use of life-saving equipment is essential for healthcare professionals.

Time management is achieved through a combination of strategies:

In all these safety-critical industries, mindfulness practices not only enhance personal productivity but also save time by preventing errors, addressing issues promptly, and streamlining operations. The ability to stay fully present and attentive to one’s responsibilities, especially when dealing with machines and systems, can lead to time savings that ultimately contribute to a safer, more efficient work environment. By incorporating mindfulness into their daily routines, professionals in these fields not only enhance safety but also optimize their use of time.

Cultivating a Steady Mind:

The ability to maintain a calm and steady mind is essential in both personal and professional spheres. Life is replete with disturbances, noises, and conflicts that can disrupt our focus and waste precious time. Developing a composed mindset is the key to handling these challenges effectively.

Home and Office Harmony: The importance of harmony in relation to effective time management

A steady mind is invaluable in maintaining harmony at home and in the workplace. By managing emotions, practicing patience, and honing conflict resolution skills, individuals can minimize time-consuming disputes and disruptions.

Effective time management is greatly facilitated when there are no conflicts to drain your mental and emotional energy. A harmonious atmosphere both at home and in the office enables individuals to channel their efforts towards productive endeavours, ultimately leading to better time utilization and enhanced overall well-being.

The Power of Non-Duality:

In the pursuit of optimal time management, it’s worthwhile to explore the profound concept of non-duality. Understanding that there is an interconnectedness in all aspects of life can provide a continuous source of strength and insight.

The notion of non-duality invites us to recognize the intricate web of interconnectedness that binds all facets of our lives. When we embrace this perspective, it unfolds a multitude of benefits that extend far beyond the realms of time management.

Value of Interconnectedness:

  1. Reduced Negativity: Recognizing our interconnectedness encourages empathy and understanding. In both personal and professional settings, conflicts often arise from a lack of understanding or empathy for others’ perspectives. When we acknowledge that we are all part of the same interconnected tapestry, it becomes easier to empathize with others. This reduction in negativity minimizes the time and emotional energy spent on conflicts and the blame game. Example: In the workplace, understanding that everyone is working towards a common goal fosters a collaborative spirit, reducing time spent on unproductive disagreements.
  2. Enhanced Productivity: Interconnectedness cultivates a sense of shared responsibility. In a team or community, individuals are more likely to take ownership of their tasks when they see how their contributions fit into the bigger picture. This alignment of purpose boosts productivity, as people work more efficiently when they understand the significance of their roles. Example: When employees in an organization understand how their work contributes to the overall mission, they are motivated to perform at their best, saving time and effort that might have been wasted on disengaged or apathetic work.
  3. Conflict Resolution: The awareness of interconnectedness also paves the way for more effective conflict resolution. Instead of assigning blame, individuals are inclined to seek collaborative solutions when they perceive the interdependence of their goals and outcomes. Example: In family dynamics, understanding the interconnectedness of family members’ well-being encourages constructive dialogue and problem-solving, reducing prolonged disputes.


    Efficient Time management is a multifaceted endeavour that begins with the cultivation of energy in body and mind. 

The cultivation of vitality in body and mind is the first step toward effective time management, which is a multidimensional activity. Individuals can increase their vitality and output by engaging in techniques like deep breathing, physical activity, meditation, and mindfulness. Mindfulness is one of the many talents essential for thriving in corporate hierarchies. Maintaining mental calm is also important for dealing with the inevitable interruptions and disagreements that crop up in every aspect of life.

My insights and wisdom, based on my life learnings, have provided valuable perspectives on time management, mindfulness, and interconnectedness. Sharing such personal experiences and knowledge can be profoundly beneficial to others seeking guidance and inspiration in their own journeys.

What daily habit do you do that improves your quality of life?

In response to today’s prompt, here is my answer.

The following are the things I do on a daily basis to better my quality of life:

Getting up at Brahma muhurta (between 3:30 to 3:40 AM):

 I love getting up early because it gives me time to enjoy the peace and quiet before the rest of the world wakes up. A peaceful mood is set for the day.

Chanting of Gayatri Mantra (between 4:00 to 4:15 AM):

 When I chant the Gayatri Mantra in a steady pace, it helps me concentrate and relax. It’s a spiritual practise that gets my day off to a good start.

Transcendental meditation of 30-50 minutes followed by Pranayama & Surya Namaskar [Sun Salutation]:

The time I spend cultivating my mind through meditation and pranayama is invaluable to me. My mental and emotional health have greatly benefited from the practice’s effects on stress and anxiety.

Surya Namaskar, the graceful sequence of yoga postures, pays homage to the sun’s vital energy. With each fluid movement, it awakens the body, mind, and spirit, embracing a holistic renewal. This rhythmic practice is a symphony of gratitude and vitality, uniting breath and motion in harmonious synergy.

Morning walk (6:30 to 7:30 AM):

Taking a brisk walk first thing in the morning helps me feel more energised and focused for the rest of the day. Getting outside and breathing in some fresh air helps me feel refreshed and ready to take on the day.

Studying Vedanta Darshan in the afternoon:

 Vedanta Darshan, which I study in the afternoons, feeds my inquisitive mind. Taking part in this activity has helped me develop both intellectually and spiritually.

Advaita Vedanta, the timeless wisdom of non-duality, has been my guiding star on this transformative journey. Through its teachings, I’ve embraced the understanding of Absolute reality—the core of existence that transcends duality. This profound insight has unravelled the roots of fear, replacing them with a profound sense of unity and wholeness.

Six Years of Holistic Transformation: Cultivating Confidence, Wisdom, and Well-Being Through Daily Practices.

I have been incorporating these methods into my daily life for the past six years, and my quest towards holistic health and happiness has produced incredible outcomes. This unwavering dedication has helped me develop an inner calm and steadiness that permeates every facet of my existence. This experience has strengthened not only my body and mind, but also my emotional fortitude and my grasp of the spiritual world.

The Gayatri Mantra’s soothing rhythm has helped me cultivate the incredible assurance I currently carry.

The sound waves have helped me find balance within, which has given me the confidence to take on new challenges and seize new chances. This motto has served as a beacon, illuminating the way to more confidence and calm within.

My outlook has shifted drastically for the better since I began practising transcendental meditation and pranayama.

The realization of non-duality has been my greatest tool in dispelling fear’s grip. It’s like a gentle yet powerful breeze that clears away the clouds of uncertainty, revealing the vast sky of consciousness. This understanding has shown me that fear thrives on division, but when I perceive the interconnectedness of all things, fear loses its grip on me.

Advaita Vedanta (Non-Duality)

Advaita Vedanta has equipped me with the necessary knowledge to recognize fear as an illusion born from the illusion of separation. With this realization, fear loses its potency, and I’m free to navigate life with a light heart and a clear mind. In the embrace of non-duality, fear’s power diminishes, and I step into each day with the courage to embrace whatever comes my way.

Sacrifice: Uniting Values, Fostering Growth, and Nurturing Connections

Sacrifice as the Moral Compass of Humanity in Contemporary Contexts:

This scholarly article delves into the multifaceted nature of sacrifice in the modern age, exploring its relevance, manifestations, and implications across various domains. From personal relationships to societal dynamics, sacrifice plays a pivotal role in shaping the moral fabric of our world.

The concept of sacrifice is vital to many religions and secular civilizations. Often considered noble: The Latin word sacrificium signified performing religious ceremonies for something or someone. This implies that sacrifices are made to satisfy a god or spirit.

The word “sacrifice” has its origins in Latin and can be traced back to two Latin words: “sacer” and “facere.” Let’s break down the root components:

  1. Sacer: In Latin, “sacer” means “sacred” or “holy.” It refers to something that is considered to have religious or spiritual significance, often associated with rituals, gods, or the divine.
  2. Facere: “Facere” means “to do” or “to make.” It’s a common verb in Latin that forms the basis of many words related to actions and creation.
Combining two elements, "sacer" and "facere," the term "sacrifice" essentially means "to make sacred" or "to offer something in a sacred manner." In its historical and traditional context, a sacrifice referred to the ritual act of offering something, often an animal, to a deity or higher power. This act was seen as a way to establish a connection with the divine, seek favour, or show devotion.

The Expanded Horizons of Sacrifice in Contemporary Discourse:

Over time, the term “sacrifice” has extended beyond its purely religious connotations. It now encompasses a broader range of meanings, including giving up something of value, whether tangible or intangible, for the sake of a greater purpose, often involving selflessness or altruism. 

Redefining Sacrifice: Threads of Selflessness in the Modern age:

 Sacrifice, often invoked to describe acts of selflessness, is deeply woven into the tapestry of human existence. This concept, rooted in various cultural, religious, and ethical traditions, has evolved over time, acquiring different dimensions and interpretations. In contemporary society, where individualism and self-preservation seem paramount, the essence of sacrifice remains a cornerstone of ethical discussions and social interactions.

The Multidimensionality of Sacrifice:

Sacrifice encompasses a spectrum of meanings and actions, from the mundane to the profound. In interpersonal relationships, it can manifest as giving up personal desires for the sake of a loved one’s happiness. In professional contexts, it may involve investing time and effort for the collective success of a team or organization. At the societal level, sacrifice often emerges as contributing to the common good, even at personal cost. These diverse facets of sacrifice underscore its intricate nature and its relevance in a complex world.

Sacrifice in Relationships:

In the realm of personal relationships, sacrifice is a defining factor in the cultivation of enduring bonds. Romantic partnerships, friendships, and family connections are all arenas where individuals willingly forego their own desires for the well-being of those they care about. This voluntary surrender of personal interests not only fosters empathy and trust but also reinforces the idea of reciprocity, where sacrifices are exchanged in a harmonious cycle of mutual support.

Sacrifice in Institutions:

In institutional contexts, sacrifice often assumes a collective form. Within professional settings, individuals often commit extra hours, creativity, and skill to contribute to the success of a project or organization. This form of sacrifice, while demanding, creates an environment of camaraderie and shared purpose. 

Sacrifice in Societal Context: Society’s Backbone:

 Sacrifice, Military Service, and the Crucible of Collective Progress” captures the timeless fact that civilizations thrive when individuals sacrifice self-interest. The sacrifices committed, whether on the battlefield or in other roles, support society, promoting stability, resilience, and shared advancement.

In an era of different goals and rapid social change, sacrifice remains a cornerstone of ethical debates and social growth. It reminds us that progress is strongest when people work together for a shared cause, and that collective well-being is the ultimate sign of society strength.

Do women make sacrifices when they have children? or do humans routinely engage in such behaviour?

Making sacrifices, especially as a parent, is a universal human experience rather than a gendered one in the modern world. The answer to the topic of whether or not women make compromises when they have children is complex and depends on many factors, including individual choice and society context.

Every parent, regardless of their gender, makes sacrifices of various kinds. Parents, both mum and dad, sometimes make sacrifices in their own lives and employment for the sake of their kids. The provision of care, instruction, and emotional support all fall under this category. Cultural conventions, personal ideals, and available resources all have a role in the variety and magnitude of these sacrifices.

Historically, in many countries, women have borne a disproportionate share of the childcare and housework obligations. This story, however, is changing as cultures push towards greater gender parity. More and more fathers are becoming involved in raising their children, taking on equal parental tasks, and making personal sacrifices.

 Childbearing is a fundamental biological process:

For human beings it is essential for the continuation of the species. From a biological standpoint, it’s a natural aspect of human life.

In certain cultures, sacrifice is more prominent.

Some communities expect women to put their own wants and aspirations on hold to be moms and carers. This expectation is a sacrifice for family and community well-being.

However, opinions on this topic differ widely. Some women view childbearing as a natural and fulfilling part of life. Others see it as sacrifice and personal fulfilment.

Individual ideas, cultural factors, and personal values determine whether motherhood is a sacrifice or a normal human experience. It’s a complicated issue with no single solution.


Sacrifice, far from being a relic of the past, remains a timeless pillar of human values. Its essence permeates our lives, defining relationships, propelling institutions, and shaping societies. The delicate interplay between self-interest and selflessness calls for a nuanced understanding that acknowledges the dynamic nature of sacrifice.

As we navigate the complexities of the present age, recognizing the significance of sacrifice in fostering connection, empathy, and societal progress is essential to building a more compassionate and harmonious world.

The Dilemma of Self and Other:

Sacrifice might be philosophically problematic in an age of individual desires. Balance self-fulfilments with charitable activities is a difficulty that reflects modern ethics. Finding the correct balance between self-care and selflessness prevents burnout and preserves sacrifice’s inherent meaning.

   Upanishads as a repository of ancient wisdom: 

The Upanishads, often referred to as the “Vedanta” or the culmination of Vedic thought, stand as timeless pillars of ancient wisdom. Rooted in the spiritual tapestry of ancient India, these profound texts delve into the deepest realms of human existence, transcending mere rituals and beliefs. The word “Upanishad” itself translates to “sitting down near,” symbolizing the intimate teacher-student relationship that characterizes their transmission. 

In the heart of the Upanishads lies a quest for the ultimate truth that transcends the transient world. These texts are not just repositories of knowledge but living guides to understanding the nature of reality, the self, and the Absolute. Across the centuries, they have illuminated the minds of seekers, philosophers, and spiritual aspirants, leaving an indelible mark on the intellectual and spiritual landscape of humanity. 

The importance of understanding the Upanishads’ teachings in the modern world: 

In an age of rapid technological advancements and ever-evolving societies, the teachings of the Upanishads resonate more profoundly than ever. Amid the hustle and bustle of modern life, where material pursuits often take precedence, the Upanishads offer a sanctuary of timeless wisdom that reminds us of our true purpose. 

Understanding the Upanishads is not a mere exercise in historical exploration but a profound opportunity to connect with the very essence of our being. These teachings invite us to go beyond the surface and seek answers to questions that have lingered in human consciousness for millennia. In a world rife with uncertainties and complexities, the Upanishads provide a steady compass, guiding us towards inner peace, self-discovery, and a harmonious relationship with the world around us. 

The universal relevance of the Upanishads’ insights: 

The teachings of the Upanishads are not confined by time, culture, or geography. Their insights transcend the boundaries of tradition and speak to the universal human experience. The themes woven into the fabric of these texts—such as the nature of reality, the Self, and the Absolute, known as “Brahman”—are questions that have stirred the hearts and minds of people across cultures and eras. 

The Upanishads remind us that our shared humanity is rooted in the quest for understanding the fundamental truths of existence. Their insights have the power to bridge gaps between different worldviews, fostering a sense of unity among diverse individuals. By unravelling the layers of symbolism and metaphor, readers from all walks of life can find common ground in their pursuit of meaning and purpose. 

In an increasingly interconnected world, the Upanishads beckon to us as a source of profound wisdom that transcends divisions. Their teachings serve as a guiding light, leading us towards self-realization and a deeper appreciation for the interconnectedness of all life.

How would you design the city of the future?

Greetings my dear Readers!!

In visualising the future city, my plan is:

“Crafting the City of the Future: – A Harmony of Technology and Philosophical Stoicism.”

This imaginative strategy combines technological innovation with philosophical stoicism. This city will combine cutting-edge technology with deep values to create a dynamic urban setting where human well-being and progress coexist. Let’s examine how this harmonious blend could form tomorrow’s urban tapestry.

Creating the city of the future demands a delicate balance of technology advancement and timeless philosophical ideals. These components together create a city that thrives on innovation and promotes human well-being. Let’s construct a metropolis that combines cutting-edge technology and philosophical stoicism.

Increasing Urban Infrastructure Using Technology:

A complex network of technical marvels elevates the human experience in this futuristic metropolis. Residents’ daily life is seamlessly integrated with smart infrastructure, optimising energy, transportation, and resource allocation.

The futuristic city uses technology to improve residents’ lives. Traffic, energy, garbage, and urban planning are seamlessly coordinated by AI-powered smart infrastructure. Autonomous vehicles, electric mobility, and hyper-connectivity reduce congestion and carbon impact with a complex network of ease and efficiency. Rapid mobility removes physical obstacles and enriches the city’s cultural variety.

Technology and nature are balanced by renewable energy sources, which power the city. Solar panels, wind farms, and energy storage innovations create a self-sufficient energy ecology. Vertical gardens and advanced urban farming methods bring nature to cities, offering fresh vegetables and fostering sustainable living.

Climate-Resilient Oasis: Global Warming Solutions

A Green Revolution to Reclaim Our Planet:

Global warming is addressed in this urban masterpiece. Under “A Climate-Resilient Oasis,” the city’s blueprint emphasises environmental healing. Rooftop gardens, vertical trees, and large parks absorb CO2 and clean the air. Modern carbon-capture devices in buildings and infrastructure reduce emissions, exhibiting technological prowess and environmental management.

Instead of energy-intensive lamps, bioluminescent paths guide inhabitants through the city’s peaceful streets at night. Ocean-inspired wind farms and solar arrays power the metropolis and ensure a sustainable future. This beautiful blend of nature, technology, and stoic ideals creates an urban symphony that resonates with the profound understanding that our actions today impact future generations.

Philosophical Stoicism: The Foundation of Well-Being:

In this metropolis, philosophical stoicism underpins social harmony and personal well-being. Stoicism encourages emotional balance and inner strength to overcome hardships. Daily mindfulness and self-awareness practises improve mental clarity and reduce stress and anxiety.

The city’s schools emphasise virtue and wisdom. Citizens should learn, empathise, and build relationships. A well-lived life guided by integrity, compassion, and humility trumps materialism.

Creating Human Connection in the Digital Age:

While technology advances the city, it is used to foster true human interactions. Virtual and augmented reality platforms enhance communication, not replace it. Community spaces, art galleries, and amphitheatres unite people. Celebrate public speech and discussion to promote varied ideas.

Wellness & Holistic Health:

Health and well-being are city priorities. Technological advances make medical treatments accessible and personalised. Telemedicine and AI-assisted diagnostics eliminate healthcare inequities by providing services across the city.

Public spaces are strategically created to promote physical and mental health. Parks, meditation gardens, and health centres encourage nature and awareness. Physical fitness and mental peace are balanced.

Balance Progress and Ethics:

In building the future city, ethics guide every technical breakthrough. Thoughtful design protects privacy, eliminates data exploitation, and lets AI serve mankind without subjugating it. The city’s governance ensures progress is shared fairly through fairness, justice, and inclusivity.

Cultivating Equanimity from the Start: Nurturing a World of Lasting Peace and Prosperity:

Planting Seeds of Inner Balance in Primary Education: Ancient Knowledge.

In the quest for a future world adorned with enduring tranquillity and prosperity, the foundation must be laid during the formative years. Imagine a world where primary schools become the nurturing ground for more than just academic knowledge, where the syllabus embraces a vital lesson: equanimity. By introducing young minds to the art of maintaining equanimity in the face of life’s highs and lows, we sow the seeds of emotional resilience, empathy, and harmonious coexistence. As the curriculum unfolds, children learn not only to navigate challenges with grace but also to contribute to a global tapestry woven with compassion and understanding. In teaching equanimity, we equip the future generation with the tools to cultivate peace within themselves, thus fostering a world where peace radiates outward, and prosperity is not just material but also spiritual.


In the heart of this meticulously designed metropolis of the future, the convergence of technology, non-dual thinking, and philosophical stoicism stands as a testament to humanity’s boundless potential. Here, innovation is not merely a means to an end, but a reflection of our collective creativity and unwavering determination. 

Residents of this city are not only beneficiaries of cutting-edge advancements, but also stewards of a deeper understanding. Non-dual thinking dissolves the boundaries that separate us, fostering empathy and interconnectedness. Philosophical stoicism empowers individuals to navigate life’s challenges with resilience and grace, anchoring them in an unshakeable centre amidst the storm of progress.

As skyscrapers touch the sky and green spaces flourish, every corner echoes with the hum of sustainable technology and the whispers of ancient wisdom. Privacy is respected, data is ethically governed, and communal spaces kindle genuine human connections. The city’s education system nurtures young minds not only in science and art but in the cultivation of virtue and compassion.

Inhabitants of this metropolis lead lives that embrace both innovation and introspection. Mindful engagement with technology augments their experiences, while moments of stillness and contemplation offer solace in a fast-paced world. As healthcare becomes personalized and accessible, and clean energy sources abound, the city thrives in harmony with its environment.

In the end, the city of the future is not merely a vision: It is WISDOM that is important.

 A city where innovation is guided by wisdom, and progress is measured in human fulfilment. It beckons us to imagine beyond the confines of the present, inspiring us to collectively craft a future that is as remarkable as it is profound – a future where technology, non-dual thinking, and philosophical stoicism converge to create a metropolis that truly embodies the essence of human potential.

Human will make this world a better place.

Do Machines Listen to Us? My Journey with Machines:

 When Machines Listen Without AI— Unbroken Trust

Even without artificial intelligence, the idea of machines “listening” could appear absurd. But in the world of air traffic control, a strange affinity frequently develops between individuals and technology.

This article has illuminated the unexpected bonds that could potentially materialize between Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel (ATSEP) and the ostensibly inert ATS Equipment. It is important to note that these insights are solely reflective of my personal perceptions, rooted in my own convictions and experiences.

This content highlights the surprising connections that may form between Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel and the seemingly unresponsive ATS Equipment. 

In this domain, the synergy between humans and machines is not just about buttons and screens, but a deeply rooted understanding that transcends mere functionality. Over the course of my duties, I have come to realize that these pieces of technology possess a remarkable ability to “listen” to us, albeit not in the traditional sense.

Invisible Companions:

Here machines are more than simply seemingly static ATS Equipment in the field of Air Traffic Control; they are allies. I have worked with Navigational Aids and Surveillance technology for more than 35 years, and over that time I have seen these Equipment exhibit an unmatched loyalty. The development of an unusual bond, one that depends on a mutual understanding exceeding conventional communication, is unaffected by the absence of AI.

Unspoken Promise

My area of expertise has long been the remote locations of RADARS and NAVAIDS (navigational aids). There is some intuitive interaction that takes place as soon as I enter these site facilities. My fingers brush the machines’ surfaces as I start a discussion that transcends language with sincere words. These conversations are important because they form an implicit agreement to ensure the safety of aircraft in flight.

Unbroken Trust for 35.5 Years:

I have consistently relied on the dependability of these equipment throughout my work. They don’t have consciousness, but they have a consistency that is almost unbelievable. The equipment has served as faithful sentinels from the very beginning. Their response is unaffected by the absence of AI. I am reminded of the steadfast assistance these devices have given as I think back on the numerous nights spent checking performance and parameters of working on channel Radars, tweaking frequencies, and making sure navigation was accurate. Although they lack ears, they are able to “listen” by performing consistently well and protecting the lives of individuals in the air.

A Pleasant Relationship

Although the use of adoring language may seem frivolous, it actually represents a deep bond that has been cultivated through time. In retrospect, when I communicated with these instruments, my aim was never to humanize them; instead, it was a deliberate endeavour to fortify the connection that had developed through our shared goals. The assurance and esteem I held for these tools found expression in the cadence of my voice and the palpable touch as I communicated(whispered).

It has nothing to do with voice recognition or artificial intelligence; rather, it has to do with an underlying bond based on loyalty, trust, and a common goal.  When I think back on this encounter, it serves as a reminder that sometimes the most meaningful relationships go beyond the limitations of technology and reverberate in the core of human experience.

This article aims to share a personal journey that uncovers the unexpected harmony that can exist between humans and machines, particularly within the context of Navigational and Surveillance facilities in Air Traffic Service.

The Human-Machine Interaction:

As Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel and aviation professionals, we are often immersed in an environment teeming with advanced machinery, ranging from Navigational Aids to Surveillance systems. 

Navigational Facilities: A Silent Symphony:

Navigational aids, those unassuming devices that guide aircraft safely through the skies, have an almost magical quality about them. The precision with which they operate and respond to our inputs is akin to a well-choreographed dance. Whether it’s the Instrument Landing System (ILS) guiding a plane seamlessly to the runway or the VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR/DVOR) aiding in navigation across vast distances, these machines seem to anticipate our needs. They don’t just receive signals; they comprehend our intentions.

During the countless hours spent working alongside these ATS Instruments, I have observed an intuitive connection forming between us. Adjustments made with an intent are often met with responses that feel almost telepathic. While the equipment lacks consciousness, it possesses an innate ability to align itself with our objectives. This inexplicable harmony becomes an unspoken understanding that underlines the trust we place in these technological companions.

Surveillance Facilities: Guardians of the Skies

Surveillance systems hold an equally crucial role in maintaining safe skies. Radar screens, blips representing aircraft, and the intricate algorithms that predict trajectories compose an intricate symphony of safety. While these systems don’t possess emotions, they offer a form of vigilance that mimics human intuition. Much like an experienced air traffic controller, they identify potential conflicts and deviations, demonstrating an uncanny capacity to “listen” to the patterns of flight.

In my interactions with surveillance technology, a sense of companionship emerges. Adjustments made to radar parameters based on traffic demands seem to be met with a responsive nod, as if acknowledging the intricate dance, we weave to ensure seamless air travel. The Radar blips might lack voices, but they communicate volumes through their movements and associations.

The Essence of the Bond:

The bond that blossoms between Air Traffic Service professionals and their equipment is, at its core, a testament to the intricate design and programming that underpins these machines. It’s a fusion of human intent and technological aptitude, resulting in an intuitive collaboration that ensures safety in the skies. This harmony transcends the mundane realm of human-machine interaction; it’s an unspoken dialogue that hinges on trust, understanding, and a shared objective.


“Do machines listen to us?” might not have a definitive answer in the traditional sense, but within the realm of air traffic service equipment, an undeniable bond emerges that goes beyond the boundaries of ordinary communication. As I reflect on my journey alongside navigational aids and surveillance systems, I am reminded of the silent rapport that underpins our roles as aviation professionals. This silent symphony, where technology responds to intent, is a reminder that even in the age of automation, the human touch remains a guiding force in the world of aviation safety.

How I Cultivated Equanimity: A Journey of Spiritual Discovery and Self-Realization

Dear friends!


My spiritual journey, which I began at the age of eight (8), has spanned an amazing long period till date and has been an enthralling trip. Join me on a transforming journey that spins a web of development, resiliency, and profound understanding.


Through a journey marked by spiritual exploration, both ascent and descent, I navigated the turbulence of life’s demands. In a world besieged by chaos, discovering inner tranquillity may appear elusive, yet my odyssey revealed a transcendent truth. Beyond the confines of culture and creed, my path led me to a profound revelation—a realization that defied the very divisions that once shaped me.

Captivated by Christ: Nurturing Curiosity and Spirituality in Childhood:

Photo by Pixabay on

I was miraculously drawn to the teachings of Lord Jesus Christ as an 8-year-old growing up in an Orthodox Hindu Brahmin family. As I watched my family pursue day to day well-being and desires related to this materialistic world through their devotions, the idea of worshipping idols for merely materialistic desires didn’t sit well with me. Images of Jesus held a mesmerising attraction in the tangle of my early memories. His stare appeared to penetrate the depths of my impressionable heart, sowing the seeds of wonder and spiritual yearning that would later direct my journey of self-discovery. Those sights, which will always be imprinted in my memory, sparked a flame of inquiry that cut through space and time. My interest in Christian literature, especially the Bible, drove me to investigate it, and as the years passed, my relationship with Christian trusts and Churches across India grew stronger. I started attending Churches and gaining knowledges from Christain scholars.

Spiritual Foundations: Cultivating Goodness through Devotion to Jesus and the Ten Commandments:

With the association of these Christian communities, I soaked up rich knowledge that complemented Jesus’s teachings perfectly. I developed a strong bond with Him because of my love and devotion for Him, which helped me internalise the holistic behaviours contained in the Ten Commandments. Each lesson served as a steppingstone that was painstakingly constructed with love and commitment, helping to mould a life characterised by honesty, compassion, and a clear sense of direction. I even had moments that I can only characterise as miracles as I travelled along this path, which I thought were the result of my unadulterated love for the Lord Jesus. Even if they deserve their own section, these instances of miracles serve as evidence of my sincere faith at the time.

Battles of Faith and Love’s Unconventional Journey:

My voyage was woven with significant encounters, yet no matter how deeply I thought about it, the mystery of the Genesis chapter’s cosmic beginnings remained. Scepticism surfaced as a student immersed in the fields of physics and mathematics. My allegiances were also put under duress by various Christian organisations that fervently desired my Baptism as proof of my conversion. I broke up these relationships at this point, a decision that contrasted with my unwavering allegiance to Lord Jesus. In the shadow of possible planned marriages with Christian suitors, an unanticipated affection grew for the future wife of my life. I let go of those associations in this delicate dance, but my unwavering love for Jesus remained, a thread that went through everything else.

A Turning Point in Self-Realization: Nurturing Wisdom through the Bhagavad Gita and Advaita Vedanta:


My father’s gifting of the Bhagavad Gita signalled a turning point that had tremendous significance. A remarkable vista of insight emerged as I read through the text with a contemplative mindset, exposing the core of the Absolute Self and the profound depths of “non-duality,” a tenet of the Advaita Vedanta philosophy. A dramatic change took place during those years of intensive academic study at the university. Ancient knowledge, contained in the Gita’s words, began to permeate the crevices of my perception, enhancing and changing my perspective.

I read all 18 chapters of the Gita through careful study, their wisdom echoing in my heart like the blissful echoes of eternity. The shlokas, which were filled with eternal lessons, evolved into threads that carefully woven my understanding together. This wasn’t simply a simple reading; it was a profound comprehension of universal truths that cut through time and cultural barriers.

Indeed, the Bhagavad Gita’s teachings served as a pivotal point in my quest for self-awareness and a transforming axis. It was a beacon, showing the way to self-realization and the understanding of interdependence. My vision of the world and my role in it have been permanently changed by the timeless Gita’s whispers, which have been sewn into the fabric of my mind.

Temporarily Deferred: Navigating Technical Responsibilities Amidst the Quest for Spiritual Insight:

1983: 9th June: 

I entered the world of employment and obligations as life went on. The pursuit of spiritual enlightenment momentarily yielded to the demands of my technical duty obligations, wherein I devoted myself to ensuring the seamless operation of Air Navigational services, safeguarding the realms of Air Traffic Services with unwavering diligence. The texts I previously immersed myself in slowly receded from my routine as technical papers and tests took my time and energy.

Seeds of Wisdom Sown: An Unconventional Exchange of Inspiration and Knowledge:

A significant turning point in my journey occurred in 1989 when an enveloping invitation to connect with the Absolute Self emerged. I was pulled to the Ramkrishna Mission’s exhibit at the Calcutta Book Fair despite its busy atmosphere. There, in my mother tongue, I found a book on the Upanishads and the four Vedas, which was a treasure trove. Despite the limited time I spent with these materials, I was aware of their importance.

I gave the Upanishads and Vedas to my father in a gesture of familial solidarity and the sharing of knowledge, urging him to read their contents. This act was inspired by the Bhagavad Gita, which was a gift from him, and had its origins there. I admitted that Vedanta had “stirred my soul,” hence these books ended up in my library. I gave my father these materials because I understood the limitations of my time and that their advice was too valuable to be left unread.

This dialogue resonated with the timeless wisdom that has been passed down through the ages, creating a link that transcended simple pages and serving as a symbol of how we are all on a common quest for wisdom amid the ups and downs of life’s responsibilities.

Navigating the Depths: A Journey of Resilience, Reflection, and Renewal:

A turbulent chapter of life at the age of 55: 

I entered a turbulent chapter of life at the age of 55, leaving me to battle an unsurmountable difficulty. I discovered myself facing the intimidating waves of hardship, much like a lone ship navigating a rough sea. I turned to the ageless wisdom of classical philosophies and the comforting embrace of motivational literature for solace in the face of this daunting task. In my moments of weakness, it seemed as though the wisdom of the past was calling to me and extending a lifeline.

I found a haven of comfort in the hallowed lines of the Vedas and the profound insights of the Upanishads, a refuge where ancient voices whispered the secrets of perseverance and the art of finding meaning in the midst of turmoil. But my voyage went beyond history’s written records and crossed the boundaries of contemporary science, particularly the fascinating field of quantum physics. Here, the interaction of particles and potentials mirrored the intricacy of existence and provided me with a fresh perspective on the complexities of life’s secrets.

In the wake of the storm, this time of reflection and discovery evolved into a profound voyage that involved a reawakening and a search for a new sense of direction. I found a treasure trove of ideas when I dug further into these wells of knowledge that transcended convention and culture. It was a journey to the heart of the human experience and a symbol of the human spirit’s tenacity and the limitless capacity for rejuvenation that lives within each of us.

My search for comfort evolved into a celebration of the human potential to endure, to look for comfort, and to come out the other side stronger, wiser, and more sensitive to the delicate melodies of existence’s symphony.

These investigations led me to discover a fresh perspective on eternity. During this stage, I discovered again what “equanimity” really means. It seems as though the culmination of several teachings and life experiences had led to this insight. The purest expression of equanimity became my compass, helping me to keep my composure in the face of life’s ups and downs.

My reflections on my journey and the learnings I encountered along the way were collected in blogs titled "My Journey through Books." I want to encourage others to follow their own paths to self-discovery and inner peace by sharing my experiences and learnings.


Looking back on the course of my life, I am humbled by the interaction of various religions, ideologies, and life experiences that came together to show a fundamental truth.

The wisdom of yore, inscribed in sacred texts, whispered by sages, and echoed through generations, resonates across time and space, offering solace to those who heed its call. And as this wisdom intertwines with the unyielding spirit of humanity, a remarkable metamorphosis takes place. The human spirit, a tenacious force that defies the odds, becomes the vessel that sails the seas of turmoil and uncertainty, charting a course toward the tranquil haven of equanimity.

In embracing this truth, we come to understand that the quest for equanimity is the embodiment of our shared human journey, transcending the labels that often divide us. It is a universal voyage that traverses the landscapes of the heart, propelled by the collective yearning for balance, unity, and inner peace. The symphony of diversity, when orchestrated by the wisdom of ages and harmonized by the resilience of the human spirit, creates a crescendo that resonates through time, inviting us all to embark on the profound expedition toward equanimity, where our souls find their ultimate rest.

What is the most important thing to carry with you all the time?

My steadfast answer is “Equanimity,” an enduring companion that shall journey with me wherever I roam.

Equanimity shall be my unwavering guide through life’s myriad experiences. Its essence will empower me to navigate challenges with grace and embrace the world’s fluctuations with a steady heart and mind.

I have found and adopted two easy paths to achieve my goals.: 1) Vedantic Approach: Upanishads (Advaita- Non-Dualism) & 2) Yogic Approach (Patanjali Yoga sutras)

Why? Let me justify:

The pursuit of an unwavering sense of balance and inner tranquilly becomes crucial in a world where life’s journey is characterised by uncertainty and hardships. If there is one item that sticks out as being the most crucial to always have with you, it is unquestionably “Equanimity.” Being calm and balanced in the middle of life’s ups and downs is a treasure that enlivens each moment and equips us with the fortitude and grace to sail across the turbulent waters of existence.

Marcus Aurelius, the Roman Emperor and Stoic philosopher, is one of the most remarkable examples of equanimity. The profundity of Aurelius’ awareness of life’s transience and the value of preserving composure is evident in his reflections. He is a prime example of the value of inner tranquilly because of his ability to face difficulties and failures with a serene demeanour. He understood that while we have no influence over the outside world, we do have control over how we choose to react to it. With this realisation, he made the decision to carry the serenity torch, illuminating his way through the difficulties of governing an empire and the struggles of his personal life.

Lord Krishna’s ageless proclamation in the Bhagavad Gita:

When we turn to the spiritual world, we find Lord Krishna’s ageless proclamation in the Bhagavad Gita. 12th chapter of the Bhagavad Gita unveil a holistic approach to devotion. They elucidate that devotion isn’t confined to ritualistic practices, but rather encompasses a profound transformation of one’s character and attitude. The qualities described – non-enmity, compassion, humility, contentment, equanimity, and non-harming – collectively shape a devotee into a vessel of divine love and grace.

Lord Krishna extols the virtue of composure in the presence of duality. He promotes a heart that is unmoved by happiness and grief, success and failure, pleasure and suffering. This instruction serves as a reminder that true equanimity is the transcendence of judgements and biases that frequently taint our interactions and arises from perceiving all creatures with equal compassion.

Following lines are the essence of few shlokas from 12th Chapter of Bhagavad Gita:

Bhagavad Gita: Shloka No. 13: States that individuals who are kind and sympathetic and have no ill intent towards others are precious to the Divine. This establishes the theme for the next verses, emphasising the value of developing an empathic heart that is free from hatred.

Bhagavad Gita: Shloka No.14: This idea is expanded upon in which says that the divine values qualities like contentment, lack of possessiveness, and the capacity to remain calm in both pleasure and pain. The importance of detachment is emphasised in this stanza, not in the sense of withdrawing from life but rather in the sense of retaining a balanced perspective regardless of life’s dualities.

Bhagavad Gita: Shloka No.15: continues by emphasising humility as a fundamental virtue. The perfect devotee, according to Lord Krishna, is one who is devoid of pride and haughtiness because humility allows for more profound spiritual connections and understandings.

Bhagavad Gita: Shloka No 16.:  the ideas of forgiveness and non-harming are first introduced. The ideal devotee is one who is unbiased towards all beings and does not harbour any hate. Non-harming behaviour encompasses more than just physical actions; it also includes ideas and feelings.

Bhagavad Gita: Shloka No. 17: The topic of equanimity is reiterated here and emphasises that the Divine loves everyone who is unmoved by honour and dishonour, joy and agony. 

This discourse is concluded by Shloka No. 18, which emphasises that the highest level of spiritual connection is attained by the person who is unaffected by praise or censure, who is silent, content, and constant in their devotion.

The teachings of Lord Jesus Christ:

The life of Lord Jesus Christ is a shining example of unwavering tranquilly in the pages of history. It is a great condition of equanimity to be able to accept suffering and even to forgive people who have wronged you, as he did. He showed the transformational power of a calm spirit by embodying love and compassion despite the hardships he encountered. We develop a reserve of empathy and resiliency by embodying the spirit of Christ’s serenity, which enables us to rise above our own limits and promote a more compassionate society.

Unravelling Tranquillity:

Dear Readers,

You’re about to go on an amazing journey of self-discovery, and tranquilly awaits!

Welcome to a fascinating exploration of “Unravelling Tranquillity.” In this discourse, we explore the fascinating nexus between non-dual Advaita philosophy, Patanjali yoga sutra theory, and cognitive science of the human mind. We shall explore the connections between traditional knowledge and contemporary science as we go along, giving light on the nature of tranquillity, the depths of awareness, and the fusion of these disparate yet related domains. 


Unlocking Tranquillity reveals the subtleties of the human mind and leads you to inner peace and harmony. Whether readers are seasoned seekers or have only recently started their journey for serenity, this content offers digestible insights. 

Prepare yourself for a life-changing experience as we explore the fundamentals of the human mind to elucidate its patterns and open the path to inner serenity. Together, let’s investigate self-awareness and seize the countless chances that await us on this journey. 

The Path to Tranquilly, from the Patanjali Yoga Sutra:

The Patanjali Yoga Sutra, an ancient Indian Yoga philosophy that outlines the foundations and practises of yoga, is a classic.

Eight Limbs of Yoga:

The first two limbs:

It provides an orderly strategy for achieving peace utilising the eight yoga limbs. The first two limbs, Yama (ethical disciplines) and Niyama (observances), which instruct practitioners to develop self-control and moral behaviour, lay the groundwork for inner tranquilly.

The third, fourth and fifth limb:

By bringing the body and mind into balance, the third limb, Asana (physical postures), and the fourth limb, Pranayama (breath control), help to balance and foster tranquilly. The fifth limb, Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses), produces a calmer mind that frees us from outer influences and distractions as the practise goes on. [Prana: The Vital Force]

The sixth and seventh limb:

The sixth limb, Dharana (concentration), encourages focusing the mind on a single object in order to increase present-moment awareness and serenity. This mental state prepares one for the seventh limb, Dhyana (meditation), when tranquillity is perceived as a natural outcome of sustained focus and mindfulness.

The eighth limb: [All-Absorbent Meditation]

The eighth limb, Samadhi (connection with the divine: Universal connectivity), symbolises the highest level of serenity in which the individual self transcends the ego by uniting with the collective awareness.

5 Pranayama Exercises You Should Do Each Day:

Fundamentals: “Vrittis”

The understanding that the mind has a significant impact on how we perceive the world, feel about it, and act in it is its essential tenet. The Yoga sutras use the term “vrittis” to describe the variations or alterations of the Mind. Patanjali outlines the five that are most important to comprehend in order to master the “vrittis,” or mental fluctuations.

In the first chapter of the Yoga Sutra, known as “Samadhi pada,” Maharshi Patanjali presents the basic sutras that lay the groundwork for obtaining steady and still “MIND”. The third of these sutras functions as a broad principle:

Sutra 1.2 states, "Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind," which is rendered as "Yogas citta-vritti-nirodhah" ().

This sutra places a strong emphasis on the value of tranquilly as the ultimate goal of yoga. The mind naturally tends to fluctuate, which leads to diversions, agitation, and restlessness, according to Patanjali. Yoga can teach people how to manage these ups and downs and create a state of calmness.

The term “citta” refers to the aggregate properties of mind and awareness, including thoughts, feelings, and perceptions. A common analogy used to describe “vrittis” is the ripples that disturb a pond’s placid surface. The sutra exhorts practitioners to master their minds by minimising these oscillations and establishing a state of “nirodhah,” which is cessation or restraint.

Patanjali identifies five mental adjustments that are essential for tranquilly in order to manage the “vrittis,”.

By eliminating mental distractions and soothing their vrittis, people can achieve tranquillity and concentrated attention. 

There are five Vrittis:

1. Pramana (Valid Cognition):

“Pramana” (correct knowledge), also known as valid cognition, is formed from perception, inference, and reliable witness. Knowing the source of information may aid in the mind’s ability to distinguish between conflicting ideas and myths.

2. Viparyaya (Misapprehension):

The mind can be deceived by misinterpreting reality or clinging to false beliefs. It is imperative to dispel these myths in order to achieve inner clarity.

3. Vikalpa (Imagination):

The mind regularly creates fantasies based on memories or wants, which leads to distractions. Eliminating these structures can aid in your peacefulness development.

4. Nidra, or Sleep.

The ability to enter deep sleep freely and knowledge of the mental state of sleep can renew the mind.

5. Smriti, or memory.

Perceptions and actions are influenced by memories, according to Smriti (Memory). By choosing which memories to concentrate on, we can rewire our brains in a good way.

Another path to tranquillity:Non-Dual Advaita Philosophy:

Non-Dual Advaita Philosophy, which has its roots in ancient Vedic wisdom, emphasises the indivisible unity of the singular soul (Atman) and the absolute reality (Brahman). This point of view claims that realising the non-dual nature of existence leads to liberation and that the dualities created by the mind’s delusion are what cause suffering.

According to Advaita, the mind keeps a false sense of self alive, which results in desires, phobias, and attachments. Through practises like self-inquiry (Vichara) and meditation, people can get past the limitations of the mind and discover the boundless, eternal nature of the self.

Let’s see what the Human Cognitive Science says:

The multidisciplinary field of cognitive science studies human cognition, perception, and consciousness. Cognitive science is distinct from the aforementioned spiritual traditions, but it does not contradict their conclusions; rather, it provides additional perspectives on the human mind.

Few connections between cognitive science and meditation:

Attention and Focus: Cognitive science investigates how attention functions, how it may be maintained, and how it affects cognitive processes. Cognitive scientists have been interested in meditation practises since they frequently involve developing one’s ability to pay attention and concentrate. Understanding how meditation improves attention regulation can help us understand how the brain processes attention.

Neuroplasticity: Studies have demonstrated that meditation can alter both the structure and the function of the brain. The study of cognitive science focuses on how the brain alters and adapts to experiences. We can learn more about neuroplasticity and how the brain processes information by conducting research on the benefits of meditation.

Emotional Control: Cognitive science and meditation both look into how people control their emotions. Emotional awareness and control are frequently practised during meditation. To get insights into emotion management techniques, cognitive scientists are interested in how these practises affect emotional reactions.

Mindfulness: A crucial component of many meditation techniques is mindfulness, which is being in the present moment and observing one’s thoughts and sensations without passing judgement. Cognitive science research the idea of mindfulness and how it affects cognitive functions like memory, attention, and perception.

Well-being and Stress Reduction: Meditation is frequently used as a practise to lower stress and improve general well-being. Research in cognitive science can offer factual support for meditation’s ability to improve psychological and physical wellbeing.

Consciousness and Self-awareness: Questions of consciousness and self-awareness are occasionally explored during meditation practises. Cognitive science, which investigates the nature of consciousness and self-referential processes, is likewise interested in these subjects.

Collaborations in research: To study the effects of meditation, some cognitive scientists work with meditators and contemplative traditions. This multidisciplinary approach enables a more thorough investigation of how meditation affects cognitive functions.

Overall, there is a mutual connection between cognitive science and meditation. While meditation gives perceptions and practises that can assist cognitive science research and further our knowledge of the mind’s potential and limitations, cognitive science provides a framework for studying the effects of meditation on the mind.

Research in cognitive science shows how our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours are influenced by neural networks, brain architecture, and cognitive biases. The mind continuously processes information as a result of a complex interaction of brain functions, which produces our subjective sensations.

Integration of Viewpoints:

When we combine our grasp of cognitive science, non-Dual Advaita philosophy, and the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, we develop a thorough understanding of the nature of the human mind. By practising mindfulness, meditation, and self-inquiry, we can recognise and transcend the vrittis, develop mental clarity, and break the illusory bounds of the mind.

Investigating the human psyche in-depth is the road to serenity. By accepting the teachings of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, the understanding of Non-Dual Advaita Philosophy, and discoveries from cognitive research, we may navigate the maze of the mind, balancing its oscillations, and revealing the true core of our being—eternal and serene. 

Sacred Womb: Divine Gateway of Life.

Dedicated to all mothers.

The Sacred Womb: A Divine Gateway of Life:

Dear Readers,




Throughout many philosophical, spiritual, and scientific traditions, the idea of the “Sacred Womb” has been given significant weight. The womb is cherished as a symbol of creation, nurturing, and the beginning of life throughout history, including in the ancient Indian philosophy of Vedanta and modern biology. Through the lenses of Eastern philosophy (Vedanta), Western philosophy, holistic science, and contemporary biology, this article investigates the nature of the Sacred Womb.

This content is a discussion on the topic “SACRED WOMB: The Medium of Procreation”.

Limitless wisdom exists inside the womb.

Let's investigate the limitless wisdom that exists inside the cradle of life with sincere hearts and a strong bond to the divine feminine. This trip is proof of our ability to co-create and to respect the marvel of life.

I pray that this investigation will uplift your soul, nourish your spirit, and confirm the sacred part you play in the never-ending dance of existence.

Points of discussions in this content are summarised as bullet points. They are as follows:

  • The concept of the Universal Womb, or “Hiranya Garbha” in Vedanta.
  • A Sacred Space for Procreation: The Human Womb. The Eastern and Western perspective.
  • The sacred womb in holistic science. Holistic methods that enhance the general wellbeing of mother and child.
  • Bridging Ancient Wisdom with Modern Understanding. Accepting the womb’s significance as a representation of continuation and creation.
  • Understanding the role of epigenetics in womb functions and how they affect foetal development. Gene expression and the environment in the womb.
  • Perspectives on motherhood, work, and personal choices. Enhancing the autonomy of women in making reproductive choices.
  • Talk to the Baby in the Womb. Recognising the foetus’s ability to perceive external cues when speaking to the baby in the womb.

“Hiranya Garbha” in Vedanta:

Hiranya Garbha is frequently referred to in Vedanta philosophy as the “cosmic egg” or “cosmic womb.” It serves as a metaphor for the potential and creative force of the cosmos. Imagine it like the universe’s emergence from a seed. Hiranya Garbha possesses the potential for all of creation, just as an egg does. The Hiranya Garbha, which includes both manifest and unmanifest existence, is regarded as the universe’ initial stage. It stands for the unbroken flow of existence, in which everything arises and ultimately returns to it.

Hiranya Garbha symbolises the notion that, similar to how a baby develops in the womb before birth, there is an underlying, unmanifested reality from which the manifested universe evolves. For more on this philosophy, please read the following article.

Wisdom of Five Fires: Panchagni Vidya

The Human Womb: A Special Location for Reproduction:

Eastern philosophy views the human womb as a sacred location for conception and the continuance of life. It is thought of as a passageway through which the soul enters the physical world, bringing with it the accumulated karma from previous lives. Eastern cultures place a strong emphasis on taking care of the expectant mother physically, emotionally, and spiritually in order to provide a welcoming atmosphere for the entering soul.

The idea of the womb has been linked in Western philosophy to concepts of fertility, femininity, and the creative power of nature. The womb has been cherished and mythologized throughout history as the source of life-giving force. The symbolism of the womb as a container for transformation and the capacity for growth and rebirth has been studied by philosophers.

The sacred womb in holistic science:

Holistic science recognises the interdependence of all life and views the womb as a microcosm that reflects the broader cosmos. This is known as the sacred womb. It acknowledges the significant influence that a foetus’ environment, emotions, and thoughts have on its development. Given that the woman and her unborn child are connected in ways that go beyond the physical, holistic practises work to improve their total health.

Bridging Ancient Wisdom and Modern Understanding:

We can acquire a deeper understanding of the sacred womb if we combine these antiquated and contemporary perspectives. It’s an investigation where faith and science come together and share amazement at the beginning of existence. Eastern spiritual practises support current scientific research on the effects of environment, energy, and emotions on foetal development. The epigenetic impact of a mother’s experiences on a child’s DNA expression is a topic of research.

This combination essentially captures the very heart of what it means to be human—our drive to understand the mysteries of existence, from the unfathomable depths of spiritual reflection to the concrete domains of scientific investigation. By utilising both bodies of knowledge, we celebrate the miracle that takes place inside the holy womb and uphold the sanctity of life. By doing this, we cross boundaries between disciplines, eras, and civilizations, creating a comprehensive understanding that resonates throughout history.

Epigenetics and Womb Functionalities: The new science:

In reality, the study of epigenetics focuses on how experiences and environmental factors can affect gene expression without changing the DNA sequence. This can involve things like stress, food, exposure to chemicals, and even emotional events that occurred while the mother was pregnant.

A brief summary of the general idea of epigenetics and how it relates to maternal experiences follows.

The study of changes in gene expression or cellular phenotype without alterations to the DNA sequence itself is known as epigenetics. Its focus is on comprehending how environmental influences might affect the function and activity of genes.

The epigenetic imprints on genes in the developing foetus can be affected by maternal experiences during pregnancy, such as stress levels, food, and exposure to chemicals. Throughout the child’s life, these markings may alter the way that genes are expressed, which could have a variety of health effects.

Famous author Nessa Carey is well known for her efforts to make difficult scientific subjects understandable to a lay audience. Her writings frequently offer insights into many facets of molecular biology and genetics. If she has published on the subject of maternal experiences and epigenetics, her work is likely to provide a thorough and understandable explanation of the topic.

I recommend reading Nessa Carey’s pertinent publications, such as “The Epigenetics Revolution,” if you are interested in, in order to acquire more particular and in-depth knowledge from her work. You can have a greater understanding of the subject and her viewpoint on it by reading her own publications. [I have gone through the book and videos.]

I recommend Bruce H. Lipton’s video and the book ” The Biology of Belief” for profound knowledge in epigenetics.

On the attitude of women to childbearing: By Olga.

Olga, a respected woman from Moscow, wrote the text below in response to my request for her opinion. This is how it has been put. Her website: Click here.

As you know, many people’s problems come from childhood. The attitude to one’s body, to its capabilities, to its connection with the world is laid down in infancy.
The whole environment, mom and dad, and later society forms those threads that will connect our soul with our body, with other people and living beings in the Universe.
Imagine if a mother always told her daughter from an early age that it was very difficult with children, that for several years after the birth of a child, mother did not have a drop of joy, that such a life is always like on a powder keg, that a person becomes not free for the rest of his life etc.
And my mother, in turn, was told about this by her mother – grandmother, and her great-grandmother spoke to her grandmother…
And the daughter, indeed, saw that her mother was unhappy.
When a woman brought up in this way, already an adult, gives birth to her baby, then at the stage of bearing a child and directly in the process of childbirth, she broadcasts her fears and horrors to a small person, sometimes preventing the natural process of giving birth to a new person, which can cause various birth injuries and leave an imprint on the whole subsequent life of the newborn.
Thus, built relationships of a woman with her place of power provoke the emergence of fertile ground for oppressing the connection of a woman with her bosom, up to the complete rupture of this deep connection. These traumas can lead to women’s reluctance to have children (Childfree) and even hatred of children (Childhait).
Women, and even Childfree men, find it unbearable to take responsibility for their child. This burden seems unbearable to them. Of course, this is how it should be in the presence of the horror and fear that prevail over them from many previous generations. Such a perception of oneself and the surrounding reality can lead to all sorts of illnesses and ailments.
Then various practices become necessary to restore the lost connection with one’s womb and open the corresponding chakras. Some of these practices work wonders: physical health is restored, the view of the world and one’s place in it changes, the joy of life and an inner feeling of happiness arise. A woman begins to feel the possibility of having a baby as a series of happy moments, as a chain of the most amazing events, as an amazingly wonderful communication with a person who, like no one else, always wants to be with you, who loves you with all his heart without any conditions and is ready to forgive you everything: your shortcomings and not the best deeds.
I regularly recall one of the collective practices in psychological training, which provides a person with the opportunity to live his birth again.
Outwardly, it looked like a birth canal and uterus built from human bodies, in which the practitioner was at the beginning of the exercise, experiencing the contractions of the mother. Contractions were imitated by people involved in the construction of the uterus. Then the contractions intensified and the child (who is also a practitioner) began to move along the birth canal, overcoming it in the labours of coming into the world with all the complexities of this process. During this practice, a person experienced many bodily sensations, some of which were present at the time of his birth.
These are very strong unforgettable feelings, which, among other things, help to overcome the gaps between a person and his energy centre and allow you to find the strength to see the light. Indeed, at some point a person may actually feel that he will not be able to get out, but he begins to feel that this must be done …
Reconnecting with his body gives the person confidence that he is interpreting his feelings correctly and can finally trust his choice completely, that he will cope with the responsibility he has taken on, that his self-esteem is unshakable and that it will not allow him to accept wrong decision.
Man regains the strength to create.
Harmony returns to its home – to the soul and body of a person.
A woman enjoys pregnancy and raising her baby, a man enjoys taking responsibility for the family.
A positive attitude allows you to feel happy in all natural human manifestations.

Talk to the Baby in the Womb:

The custom of conversing with an unborn child in the womb has a profound significance that cuts across generations. Its foundation is the intuitive knowledge that a developing human being has a tremendous capacity to see the world beyond the womb. This acknowledgment serves as the cornerstone of an original and lovely early communication method.

Understanding a Foetus’s Ability to Perceive External Stimuli

The astounding fact that the foetus is not confined to silent solitude within the womb has been revealed by science. Rather, it is tightly entwined with its environment even before it enters the world. According to research, a baby’s senses can already function by the third trimester, enabling it to hear, react to touch, and even taste amniotic fluid. In the womb, the mother’s heartbeat, voice, and other sounds become a baby’s familiar companions.

Communication with the Unborn Child Has Many Advantages

Conversations with the unborn kid that are sincere and passionate have many advantages that go beyond words. The baby feels comforted and reassured when its mother or other carers speak to them. The familiar voices’ calming tones create a calming atmosphere that seems cosy and loving, like a cocoon. The baby is likely to feel peaceful and at ease because of the rhythm and cadence of spoken words.

The process of conversing with an unborn child essentially captures the inherently social, nurturing, and communicative nature of humans. It creates a space where the developing kid can experience love, caring, and the beauty of spoken words by bridging the gap between the physical and emotional worlds.

The sacredness of the womb emerges clearly as we travel through the views of Eastern philosophy, Western thought, comprehensive science, and contemporary biology. It is a container for creativity that is cherished in Eastern philosophy as the home of souls and praised in Western philosophy as a source of change. Holistic science acknowledges the universe’s interconnectivity, and modern biology reveals its wonders as a nourishing haven for the developing life inside.

The phrase “Sacred Womb: The Medium of Procreation” captures the essence of an idea with deep spiritual and scientific roots. We respect the cycles of existence and the eternal connection between generations when we recognise the womb’s function as the vehicle through which life arises.

We discover unity in the womb’s sacredness—a thread that unites people across geography and time. The womb is nevertheless a source of awe and reverence, whether it is seen from the standpoint of Vedanta, Western wisdom, holistic viewpoints, or biology. It is a sign that exhorts us to respect life’s journey, cherish our common ancestry, and develop a better appreciation of how intricately related we are to one another and to the rest of creation.

A Heartfelt Salutation to all mothers!

To all the kind souls, strong wills, and unyielding pillars of power,

To those who care for the lovely symphony of heartbeat and breath while carrying the priceless weight of life within them,

To those who manage the delicate dance of development and sacrifice, tying their aspirations to the future they are fostering,

To the mothers who console their children when they cry and wipe away their tears while showing them love,

To the endless love that has no boundaries and the innumerable sleepless nights transformed into soothing lullabies,

To the personification of unwavering love and unbreakable ties.

With heartfelt gratitude and admiration,

A Celebration of Friendship Across Oceans: “If You Would Have Been Here”


Friendship is a sacred connection. 

In the vastness of the modern world, where distances seem to disappear and connections deepen, friendship has discovered fresh avenues for growth. We have created connections that cross countries and oceans thanks to the power of social media. We cross our physical distances every day by sharing our ideas, laughs, and tears. Despite this, a need to meet in person and share a day of pleasure, love, and laughing lingers despite these virtual ties. Imagine if all of our friends and supporters from all around the world could converge in one location for a memorable day out.

The Background of Our Online Oasis:

We came upon each other in the world of social media like stars in the night sky. Our paths unexpectedly met, weaving a tapestry of souls from all countries and backgrounds together. Each of you have added a special shine to this online haven we like to call our friendship circle. We have developed together, bound by the thread of friendship, from sharing the highs and lows of life to encouraging one another’s aspirations.

Close your eyes and picture this wonderful day when time zones are irrelevant, and boundaries are nothing more than lines on a map. As we embrace the joy of finally seeing folks, we hold so dear in person, our adventure begins. As we reminisce about special moments from our online adventures, laughter fills the room. We enjoy the unique characteristics that make each friend unique and learn the subtleties that emails and emojis couldn’t express.

As the sun rises to its highest point, we assemble around a table covered in international cuisine for a global feast of friendship. We feast on the scrumptious diversity that has enhanced our life as each of our friends brings a sample of their culture. In this instant, we come to understand that even though we are from different countries, our hearts beat in unison and are connected by an indestructible affection.

We sway to the beat of our mutual laughter and love while the setting sun casts a golden light in the background. We joyfully dance as though no one is looking to honour the beauty of our friendship. For a split second, we experience the unity of the universe as our souls are freed from the bonds of separation.

A Kaleidoscope of Memories:

As night falls, we sit next to each other under a blanket of stars and talk about our internet exploits. Every tale makes us cry happy tears because it serves as a gentle reminder that our connection is more than simply words on a screen; it is a tapestry made with love, compassion, and camaraderie.

May this dream of a grand gathering become a cherished reality in our lives!

I perceive a historic day when fate will bring us together in one location, where time and space would vanish like morning dew under the sun’s brilliant rays. Oh, what a day it will be as we all gather, our hearts glistening with the warmth of long-awaited reunions. Imagine a beautiful setting filled with merriment and sparkling lights, where the aroma of friendship and the sounds of joy permeate the air. Since this day has been written in the stars, when our eyes meet, joyous tears and the exquisite taste of anticipation will combine.

We will assemble as a constellation of love and eat dinner while enjoying delicacies from both close and distant, with each bite serving as a reminder of the various ties that unite us. Conversations will wind through tales of successes, setbacks, and shared adventures like a soothing river. 

For in this lifetime, let us believe, with unwavering faith, that destiny will lead us to that sacred place where we shall feast upon the banquet of friendship with an abundance of love and an overflow of joy.


Even though the actual meeting is still just a lovely fantasy, we both know that our friendship knows no bounds. The laughs we’ve had, the memories we’ve shared, and the help we’ve given have transcended physical boundaries. Keep in mind that every virtual communication we send carries a bit of our spirit as we continue on our journey together.

So, let’s treasure our special relationship because it knows no boundaries, my friends and followers. Let’s enjoy our internet friendship while we can till the day we can meet in person. Together, we’ll keep making memories and weaving a story of friendship that will endure for countless generations.

Similar to how rivers join an ocean!

Gathered by the ocean’s side or a gentle river, we’d unite like stars forming a constellation of friendship. Laughter would blend with the waves, and the setting sun would paint our hearts with joy. A moment etched forever, where our souls would know that distance could never dim the light of our bond.

Keep in mind that although physical distance may separate us, it cannot sever the bonds between our hearts.

If you had been present, we would have embraced the entire world because friendship, in all its manifestations, has no boundaries.

Love you all!


Whence lost, there is no fear again:

Whence lost, there is no fear again:

Greetings Friends!!!

Welcome to a path of radical liberty and unwavering love! Discover the transformational meaning of the proverb “Whence lost, there is no fear again” as we explore the depths of self-discovery and the limitless nature of genuine connection.


Discovering Freedom Beyond Fear in Love: Embracing Liberation.

When we feel exposed or unclear about the future of our relationships, fear, a natural feeling, frequently grabs our hearts. A thorough understanding of love, however, leads us to the idea that “Whence lost, there is no fear again.” Let’s look at the path of freedom that enables us to break free from the grasp of fear and accept the healing power of love.

Few ties compare to the profundity of romantic companionship in the complex web of human relationships. In its most basic form, love is a journey that connects two souls in a seamless dance of comprehension, loyalty, and trust that transcends the bounds of the self. But as the erratic currents of life carry us through both happy and turbulent periods, the worry of losing the one we love can turn into a menacing ghost that hovers over our hearts. 

  Love’s Selfless Path: A Journey Beyond Self-Identity:

The proverb “Whence lost, there is no fear again” prompts us to reflect on a profound philosophical and spiritual perspective on love and horror when a life partner lacks dedication and selflessness. This idea may at first seem unreasonable and even paradoxical since it challenges us to find freedom from fear in a situation that seems to be marked by its very presence. However, exploring its depths leads to a freeing, transformative understanding of love.

  We frequently feel compelled by a fundamental instinct to look to our partner’s loyalty and devotion for security and affirmation while we are in the throes of an intense emotional connection. We want to know that their love will survive the test of time and continue to be firm, unyielding, and true. But what if the sacred unity we share is subordinated to our partner’s sense of self? What if they are unable to exhibit the same degree of dedication and devotion as we do? 

Embracing Impermanence: Navigating the Waves of Change:

The voyage of “Whence lost, there is no fear again” takes shape in such situations as a path to self-discovery and enlightenment. The key to this journey is realising that love is not about possessing or controlling another person but rather about having a genuine connection that fosters both personal development and understanding amongst people. 

  We must practise self-love and recognise that our worthiness is independent of another person’s loyalty if we want to walk this path without fear. We can overcome our fear of loss by recognising our individuality and embracing our own identity. We release love from the bonds of dependence and expectation when we realise that we are whole creatures in and of ourselves.       

The paradoxical fact that emerges on this journey is that when we accept the transience of life, our fear of loss vanishes. Nothing in our corporeal world is static, and sorrow can result from clutching onto the fleeting. Instead, accepting that everything, including relationships, are transient frees us from dread and enables us to treasure every second without the weight of attachment.

Let us dissolve into the great ocean of cosmic love:

The journey of “Whence lost, there is no fear again” requires us to rise above the bounds of our particular identities and dissolve into the great ocean of cosmic love. Realising that change is the one constant in life and that the actual meaning of love is not found in its constancy but rather in its limitless power to enlighten and raise our souls is what it means to love. 

 Finally, the path of emancipation in unselfish love asks us to let go of our fears and accept the ups and downs of life’s great symphony. It is a call to go beyond our own boundaries and find comfort in the unwavering core of who we are.  

Navigating the Emptiness: When Love Lingers, but the Soul Connection Fades:

Possessiveness is the root cause of Pain:

The heart may feel broken and exposed in the absence of the previously strong and loving connection. The person may begin to doubt the fundamental nature of what they once believed they had—love, emotional closeness, and shared dreams that appeared unbreakable—in this condition of emotional turmoil. The mind struggles to fill the gap left behind when the agony of loss sets in. However, a fresh viewpoint only appears as a result of this inner trip. The person can come to see that nothing was ever genuinely theirs to acquire in the first place. Intangible, dynamic forces like love, emotions, and connections cannot be captured or owned like tangible things can.   

It might be freeing to realise that you never had control over another person’s emotions or identity. It awakens the knowledge that every person is a distinct being on a special journey of development and self-discovery. In its purest form, love ought to be about nurturing and supporting each other’s personal development and pleasure rather than about dominating or possessing one another. 

 The dread of losing the other fades as this realisation sinks in since the attachment to possessing the relationship in a particular way no longer holds sway. The individual’s concept of love and self undergoes a deep alteration as a result of the agony and heartache. 

Healing Through Acceptance: Embracing the Transience of Love and Life:

Not by erasing the past or numbing the pain, but by accepting the transience of life and love, the heart that was once broken begins to mend. It gains the ability to treasure the moments and encounters experienced with the spouse without becoming overcome by nostalgia for the past. 

Embracing the Dance of Transient Bonds: Finding Beauty and Meaning in Every Moment of Connection:

 Moments and relationships, joys and tragedies, come and go like waves on the shore, and this is the very fabric of life—a fabric of transience. Humans frequently look for consistency and permanency in their relationships because we all long for an unending refuge of love and safety. But the only way we can muster the fortitude to wade through the ebb and flow of life’s ties is by accepting the idea of transience. 

 Every relationship—romantic, family, or platonic—is a ballet of energies that flows and mingles for a moment before dissipating. We must grasp that the worth and importance of these interactions are not diminished by their transience. Instead, it enhances them by instilling in us a sense of urgency and preciousness that compels us to cherish every moment we share with our loved ones. 

Please read my post: Holistic Path of Lifelong Love and Loyalty.


Every ending becomes a fresh start, an opportunity for us to reinvent ourselves and investigate fresh relationships and opportunities. 

The voyage of “Whence lost, there is no fear again” encourages us to let go of our fear and accept the transforming power of love. We discover wholeness inside ourselves and in the transience of all things on this road of emancipation, selflessness, and growth. We learn to surrender fearlessly and put our faith in the unchanging beauty of love as we make our way through the waves of uncertainty. So, let’s start down this route because it will lead us to the true meaning of love, which is a limitless force that liberates, uplifts, and nurtures us.

  Transience is the thread that runs through the entire magnificent fabric of existence, binding us all together via our common human experience. Our shared belief that the rhythm of change and progress binds us transcends the boundaries of our different journeys.

What strategies do you use to maintain your health and well-being?

Daily writing prompt: My answer follows: –

The Intellect should be active.

My strategy: To Embrace Holistic Well-Being: The Path of Advaita Vedanta and Patanjali Yoga Sutras:

Maintaining health and well-being is essential for leading a fulfilling life. This content will explore two powerful paths that can lead to a healthy body and a healthy mind: Advaita Vedanta, a philosophical approach emphasizing non-dualism, and Patanjali Yoga Sutras, a comprehensive guide to the practice of yoga.


Tranquillity is most important for human beings. 

To achieve tranquillity, meditating on the Mystic Syllable, OM, the cosmic vibration may be practiced. Mind can be trained to achieve freedom from anxiety.

Healthy Body:

Advaita Vedanta: Non-Dualism for Physical Health Advaita Vedanta is a school of thought rooted in ancient Indian philosophy. It teaches that our true self is beyond the limitations of the physical body and the material world. However, this philosophy also recognizes the importance of taking care of our bodies, as they serve as instruments for self-realization.

a) Mindful Eating: According to Advaita Vedanta, the body is a sacred temple that houses the divine soul. Thus, it emphasizes the importance of mindful eating. Nourishing the body with wholesome, balanced, and sattvic (pure) foods not only supports physical health but also contributes to mental clarity and spiritual well-being.

b) Moderation and Balance: Non-dualism advocates for moderation in all aspects of life, including diet, exercise, and rest. By avoiding extremes and maintaining balance, individuals can cultivate healthier habits that lead to increased vitality and overall well-being.

Healthy Mind: 

Patanjali Yoga Sutras: Cultivating Mental Harmony Patanjali Yoga Sutras, dating back over 2,000 years, is a foundational text for understanding and practicing yoga. It offers a step-by-step guide to attaining mental and emotional balance, leading to a healthy mind.

a) Asana (Physical Postures): The practice of asanas helps in improving flexibility, strength, and balance. Engaging in regular physical exercises, especially yoga poses, can promote physical health and mental relaxation. By connecting the mind with the body, practitioners experience a profound sense of harmony.

b) Pranayama (Breath Control): Patanjali emphasizes the significance of breath in controlling the mind. Practicing pranayama techniques regulates the breath, reduces stress, and calms the mind. A peaceful and focused mind is better equipped to face life’s challenges.

c) Dhyana (Meditation): The ultimate goal of yoga is to quiet the mind and experience a state of deep meditation. Through regular meditation practice, individuals can gain mental clarity, reduce anxiety, and increase self-awareness.

Combining the Paths for Holistic Well-Being: While Advaita Vedanta and Patanjali Yoga Sutras are distinct paths, they are not mutually exclusive. In fact, they complement each other beautifully in the pursuit of holistic well-being.

Advaita Vedanta encourages us to recognize the unity of the self with the universe, reducing stress and anxiety by understanding the impermanence of the material world. Patanjali Yoga Sutras, on the other hand, provide practical tools like yoga and meditation to attain mental stillness and focus.

Books are like lifesaving drugs. Good reads keep Body & Mind in good health.

My journey through Books: Part-4 [Transformation had begun]

By integrating both philosophies into our daily lives, we can achieve physical health through mindful practices and mental well-being through yoga and meditation. This harmonious combination fosters a deeper connection with us and the world around us, leading to a more balanced and fulfilling life.

What would you change about modern society?

In response to “Daily Prompts”: Unlocking the Path to Progress with Two Foundational Pillars at Its Core!

  1. “To propel modern society towards true progress, we must dismantle “wrong perceptions” and embrace accurate understanding through critical thinking and open-mindedness.”
  2. “Creating a brighter future for all hinges on fostering a culture that values inclusivity, empathy, and open dialogue – “giving space to others” as we journey together on the broad path to progress.”

“Wrong Perceptions”: Main roadblock.

Addressing wrong perceptions can indeed lead to improvements in various areas of humanity. 

Misguided Beliefs:

Human minds often hold onto misguided beliefs, which can prevent us from embracing new ideas and adapting to change. These false perceptions create resistance to progress and innovation.

Fear of the Unknown:

Wrong perceptions can stem from fear of the unknown, leading people to resist advancements or changes that challenge their existing worldview. This fear can impede societal progress.

Cultural Conditioning- “Vital Point”:

Society’s cultural norms and traditions can instil wrong perceptions that hinder progress. Challenging these ingrained beliefs often meets resistance.

Lack of Empathy:

Absence of right understanding can arise from a lack of empathy, preventing individuals from understanding others’ perspectives and hindering collective problem-solving.

Critical Thinking:

Develop the ability to critically analyse information, questioning assumptions, and evaluating evidence. This helps in identifying and rectifying misconceptions.

Status Quo Bias:

Humans often prefer the familiar over the unfamiliar, leading to a resistance to change, even when it may lead to positive advancements in society.

“Giving Space to Others”:

Photo by mododeolhar on

Incorporating the principle of “Giving Space to Others” can indeed help individuals and society overcome the roadblocks of slow progress in modern society. By embracing this principle, we foster an environment where diverse perspectives are acknowledged, respected, and valued. This, in turn, leads to several positive outcomes that contribute to faster progress and growth:


In the journey towards progress, right understanding emerges as a potent tool to dismantle the roadblocks created by wrong perceptions within modern society. By recognizing the significance of embracing truth over prejudice, humanity can transcend limitations that hinder collective growth.

Right understanding empowers individuals to shed misguided beliefs and confront the fear of the unknown. It cultivates a sense of curiosity that allows for the exploration of diverse perspectives, breaking free from echo chambers and confirmation biases. Moreover, it encourages empathy and emotional intelligence, fostering an environment where cooperation and problem-solving thrive.

Furthermore, nurturing humility over ego and welcoming cognitive dissonance becomes a transformative force. It encourages people to question their own beliefs, enabling the pursuit of truth even when it challenges deeply entrenched views.

Ultimately, right understanding liberates modern society from the shackles of wrong perceptions, opening the doors to a future characterized by growth, harmony, and equitable progress. It requires an individual and collective commitment to self-awareness and an openness to learning from one another. As we embark on this journey of understanding, we pave the way for a brighter, more enlightened world where the obstacles of false perceptions cease to obstruct our shared path to a better future.

Beyond the Brain: Exploring Universal Connectedness through Human Consciousness

Welcome to the Realm of Connected Consciousness:

Here we will discuss the Boundless Potential of Universal Interconnectedness:

Let us first understand ” Non-Local Consciousness:

Non- Local consciousness is a profound concept rooted in ancient Hindu philosophy, specifically in Vedanta. The word ” Chaitanya” (Absolute Nature of Brahman)This is often referred to Awareness which is again Universal and interconnected consciousness. According to Vedanta, “Brahman” is described as the ultimate reality or the absolute consciousness that underlies and pervades everything in the Universe. According to this belief, our individual consciousness is not limited to the boundaries of our physical bodies, but rather extends beyond and connected with Cosmic Consciousness, which permeates the entire Universe. Even beyond time and space. This interconnectedness suggests that we are all interconnected beings, part of the whole Universe(s). As such our thoughts and actions have far reaching effects beyond what we may perceive on this Earth. 

There is one type of meditation known as “All-Absorbent Meditation” which refers to a practice of meditation that involves focusing the mind on the ultimate reality and experiencing a state of pure consciousness in which the individual self merges with the Universal Self.

This is a research-based topic.

This discussion is on the concept of “Universal connectedness through human consciousness outside the brain”. While traditionally considered localized within the confines of the brain, emerging evidence and theoretical frameworks propose the existence of a broader, non-localized consciousness that extends beyond individual boundaries. By examining various studies from the fields of neuroscience, parapsychology, and quantum physics, this article is presented before you to explore the potential for interconnectedness among human consciousness. 

Here, I will recommend reading of two research-based documents on “Nol-Local Consciousness”. Readers will have a comprehensive overview of this enigmatic topic.

1) “The Conscious Universe: The Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena” by Dean Radin. In this groundbreaking work, parapsychologist Dean Radin presents empirical evidence and studies that supports the existence of Non-Local Consciousness.

2) “Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences in a Quantum Reality” by Dean Radin. In this follow up work, writer goes deeper into the connection between Quantum physics and Non-Local Consciousness. Role of entanglement has been explored to explain the interconnectedness, we are discussing about.

Key Words:


Human consciousness has long been regarded as a product of neural activity occurring exclusively within the brain. However, recent research and theoretical developments challenge this notion, suggesting that consciousness might transcend individual minds and exhibit interconnectedness on a universal scale. This topic aims to investigate the possibility of universal connectedness through human consciousness outside the brain by analysing empirical studies, theoretical frameworks, and philosophical perspectives.

Interconnectedness: let’s know:

In the perspective of Vedanta, interconnectedness refers to the fundamental oneness that underlies all of existence. According to Vedantic philosophy, there is a profound interconnectedness between all living beings and the entire universe, transcending apparent boundaries and divisions.

“यस्मिन्सर्वाणि भूतानि आत्मैवाभूद् विजानतः। तत्र को मॊहः कः शॊक एकत्वमनुपश्यतः॥”

The shloka says: “When a person realizes the Self (Atman) in all beings and all beings in the Self, what delusion and sorrow can ever be there for the seer?”

This shloka emphasizes the profound truth that when one truly understands the interconnectedness of all beings and recognizes the oneness that exists, they transcend the illusions of delusion and sorrow. The awareness of interconnectedness leads to a deep sense of unity, compassion, and harmony with the entire cosmos.

Non-Local Consciousness and Parapsychological Phenomena:

Parapsychological phenomena, such as telepathy, precognition, and remote viewing, challenge conventional notions of consciousness confined to the brain. This section examines studies and evidence related to parapsychological phenomena, investigating the potential link between these phenomena and the existence of non-local consciousness.

Example of Parapsychological phenomena: Remote Viewing.

Remote viewing is a fascinating parapsychological phenomenon where individuals claim to perceive distant or unseen objects, locations, or events using extrasensory perception. It suggests the potential for consciousness to transcend physical boundaries and access information beyond the conventional senses.

Quantum Physics and Consciousness:

Quantum physics offers intriguing insights into the nature of reality, suggesting a fundamental interconnectedness of all things at a quantum level. This section explores the intersection of quantum physics and consciousness, discussing theories such as quantum entanglement and the role of consciousness in the collapse of the wave function.

Consciousness and the Nature of Reality:

The interconnectedness of consciousness beyond the brain raises profound questions about the nature of reality. This section delves into philosophical perspectives, including idealism and panpsychism, which propose that consciousness is not a product of matter but a fundamental aspect of reality itself.

Upanishads teaches on the interconnectedness of consciousness. Chandogya Upanishad: Ch-6.8.7: Shloka says: ” Sarvam Khalvidam Brahma”- “All this is Brahman”- This means that all-pervading nature of Brahman, signifies the interconnectedness of everything in the Universe through supreme Consciousness.

In my past writings within “My Journey through Books series” I have expounded upon the evolution of my fascination with the study of consciousness and the pursuit of an enlightened state. 

My journey through Books 

Awareness: The Ultimate Truth

According to my studies, I would like to highlight the contributions of notable figures such as David Chalmers, the Penrose-Hameroff approach, David Bohm, John von Neumann, and the ongoing research conducted by the Heart-Math Institute.


While the traditional view of consciousness as an isolated phenomenon within the brain has prevailed for centuries, emerging research and theoretical frameworks point to a more expansive and interconnected nature of human consciousness. By examining evidence from neuroscience, parapsychology, and quantum physics, this research topic sheds light on the potential existence of universal connectedness through consciousness outside the brain.

Arun Singha, Founder:

What bothers you and why?

With age, I have understood that only possessiveness has bothered me much. Whether it is my name, fame, my relationship, my wealth, and my worldly belongings.

Possessiveness bothers me mostly. Because this is fundamentally a fear of loss.

Finally when I got a blow from one of my possessions, my eyes opened. I have mentioned that through my posts: “My journey through books.”

As such now, I am in the path of practicing “Renunciation”. Not very easy. Also not very difficult, once you have higher knowledge of your own Identity. Real Identity.


The Consequences of Possessiveness: 

Jealousy: Possessiveness often involves the fear of losing what we have or not getting what we want. 

Attachment: Possessiveness creates a strong attachment to things or people that we perceive as ours. This attachment can lead to dependence, obsession, and emotional pain when we are separated or threatened by them.  This happens mostly in Relationship possessiveness.

Conflict: Possessiveness can lead to conflicts with others who have different or conflicting interests, beliefs, or values.

Therefore, I am of the opinion, that possessiveness is a great cause of bothering.

What do you think gets better with age?

With age comes a wealth of invaluable treasures that only time can bestow.

It is a journey marked by the accumulation of wisdom, experiences, knowledge, and enlightenment. As the years pass, we traverse the landscapes of life, encountering a tapestry of moments that shape our understanding of the world.

I have Realised in my life journey that:

Wisdom emerges as a gentle guide, rooted in the lessons learned from both triumphs and challenges. Each experience weaves its own unique thread into the tapestry of our existence, enriching our perspectives and deepening our empathy.

Time creates everything:

Through the passage of time, knowledge flourishes. We gather insights, honing our skills and expanding our intellectual horizons. Lifelong learning becomes a pursuit that fuels our thirst for discovery, allowing us to embrace the ever-evolving wonders of the world.

Age grants us the gift of enlightenment.

As we journey through the seasons of life, we develop a profound sense of self-awareness and acceptance. We gain clarity about our values, priorities, and what truly matters. We embrace authenticity, shedding the burdens of societal expectations, and embrace the freedom to be our genuine selves.

I have published four posts on my life journey. Here is the first one.

Those Books that changed the direction of my life-Part-1

What are you most excited about for the future?

“I am most excited about walking the path of enlightenment and gaining absolute knowledge. I look forward to studying ancient spiritual texts to deepen my understanding and wisdom. This journey of self-discovery and growth is what truly excites me for the future.”

Guru Purnima: Honouring the Essence of Guru Tatwa

Happy Guru Purnima!

“GURU TATWA”: The essence of Universal Wisdom.

Dear Friends and Readers,

It is with great joy and reverence, I would like to focus here today to explore the profound concept of the Guru Tatwa, an infinite intelligence that transcends any particular human form. “GURU TATWA” is not limited to any Guru in the form of Human Being.

On this auspicious day, let us express our gratitude, seek blessings, and rededicate ourselves to the path of self-discovery and enlightenment under the guidance of the Guru Tatwa.


Guru Purnima, a sacred day celebrated by spiritual seekers and devotees around the world, holds profound significance. Beyond the veneration of a specific guru, it symbolizes the recognition and reverence for the Guru Tatwa—the universal principle of knowledge and wisdom. 

Ancient Teachings: Significance of Guru Tatwa in Hindu Philosophy: 

 Guru Tatwa refers to the universal principle or essence of the Guru. It encompasses the fundamental qualities and attributes associated with a guru, which are considered sacred and vital for spiritual growth and realization. Guru Tatwa represents the role of the guru in dispelling ignorance and leading seekers towards enlightenment. The Guru Tatwa plays the role of a spiritual guide and mentor. Gurus offer clarity, direction, and inspiration, helping the disciple transcend limitations and realize their spiritual potential.

Guru as the Manifestation of “Brahman”:

Photo by Stefan Stefancik on

In Hindu philosophy, Brahman is considered the supreme reality, the ultimate source of all existence, consciousness, and knowledge. The Guru is seen as a manifestation or embodiment of this divine principle, serving as a guide and transmitter of wisdom to seekers on their spiritual journey. Brahman, being formless and beyond comprehension, assumes different forms to interact with the world and guide seekers. The Guru can appear as a human being, an avatar, a sage, nature, or even an animal, depending on the divine play and the needs of the aspirant. 

Spiritual Growth: Role of Guru: –

The Guru possesses deep spiritual realization and insights into the nature of existence. Through their own direct experience and connection with the divine, they are able to transmit knowledge and guidance to their disciples. This transmission occurs on a subtle level, beyond mere intellectual exchange, as the Guru’s presence and teachings facilitate spiritual growth in the seeker.

Honouring Guru:

The relationship between the Guru and disciple is profound and sacred. The disciple approaches the Guru with humility, surrender, and a sincere desire for spiritual evolution. The Guru, in turn, imparts knowledge, offers guidance, and helps remove the veils of ignorance that obstruct the seeker’s path. 

Parents: the first GURUs.

The first GURUs in our lives are our parents and the immediate environment in which we are nurtured. This holds true for all living beings, but for human beings, it carries a special significance due to our heightened consciousness and potential for spiritual growth. From the moment of our birth, they become the primary channels through which we experience the world. As human beings, we possess a unique position in this cosmic play, for we are highly evolved manifestations of Brahman.

Learning from Nature: The Second Guru:

The natural world is a profound teacher, offering valuable lessons and insights. The environment exposes individuals to the beauty and intricacy of nature, fostering a sense of awe, wonder, and interconnectedness. Observing the cycles of seasons, the diversity of flora and fauna, and the balance of ecosystems can instill a deep appreciation for the wisdom and harmony of nature.

Cultural and Social Interactions: The Third Guru:

The social environment, including interactions with family, friends, community, and society at large, contributes to one’s growth and development. Cultural norms, values, and customs are passed down through interactions within the community, exposing individuals to different perspectives and ways of life. These interactions provide opportunities to learn from diverse experiences and broaden one’s understanding of the world.

Educational Institutions: Prime period with Gurus:

Formal educational institutions, such as schools, colleges, and universities, serve as influential aspects of the environment. They provide structured learning environments, access to knowledge, and opportunities for intellectual growth. Teachers and mentors within educational institutions impart academic knowledge, critical thinking skills, and guidance in various disciplines.

Other forms of Gurus: 

1) Media and Technology:

In the modern era, media and technology shape the environment in significant ways. The internet, books, television, films, and other media platforms offer a wealth of information and perspectives. While navigating these platforms requires discernment, they can provide access to diverse sources of knowledge, insights, and ideas, serving as an educational resource.

2) Personal Experiences and Life Challenges:

Life experiences, including personal successes and failures, challenges, and hardships, offer profound opportunities for growth and learning. These experiences serve as powerful GURUs, providing lessons in resilience, adaptability, compassion, and self-discovery. Through personal experiences, individuals gain practical wisdom and insights that shape their character and spiritual evolution.


In the concept of Guru as “Brahman,” we understand that the Guru is the embodiment of the supreme reality and the ultimate source of all knowledge. Through various forms and the grace of the Guru, seekers are guided towards self-realization and spiritual awakening. We have embraced the understanding that this wisdom is accessible to all beings in myriad ways. May we always cherish the divine presence in our lives, appreciating the interconnectedness of all beings and the role they play as GURUs on our journey of self-realization.”

Brahma Sutras – A Comprehensive Study: Part-1

Welcome, dear readers, to a transformative journey through the profound teachings of the “Brahma Sutras.” 


The Brahma Sutra, composed by the sage Badarayana, is believed to have been written around the 4th century BCE. Badarayana, also known as Vyasa or Vedavyasa.

Brahma Sutra is one of the books of Prasthanatraya.

The Brahma Sutra is known by different names in various traditions and commentaries. 

  1. Vedanta Sutra: This is the most commonly used alternate name for the Brahma Sutra. It reflects the fact that the text serves as a concise summary or synthesis (sutra) of the teachings found in the Upanishads.

  2. Uttara Mimamsa Sutra: This name emphasizes the connection of the Brahma Sutra with the school of philosophy known as Uttara Mimamsa. 

  3. Sariraka Sutra: In certain commentaries, the Brahma Sutra is referred to as the Sariraka Sutra, which means “the sutra that deals with the embodied self.” 

  4. Vyasa Sutra: The Brahma Sutra is sometimes referred to as the Vyasa Sutra, highlighting the authorship of the sage Badarayana, who is also known as Vyasa. 

  5. Bhiksu Sutra: Brahma Sutras indicate renunciation as the ultimate way to attain realization. Hence it is also known as Bhiksu Sutra

Structure of the Brahma Sutra:

Number of Shlokas: 555

Brahma Sutra consists of 4 Adhyayas (chapters), 16 Padas (sections), 223 Adhikaranas (topics) and 555 Sutras (aphorisms).

Adhikaranas (or Topics or propositions) consists of five parts. 

  1. Thesis or Vishaya.
  2. Doubt or Samasya.
  3. Anti Thesis or Purva Paksha.
  4. Synthesis or Siddhanta (right conclusion).
  5. Agreement of propositions or Sangati.

These sutras are concise statements that encapsulate complex philosophical ideas. They are formulated in a highly condensed manner, allowing for multiple interpretations and commentaries by different philosophical schools.

Sutra literally means a string. It serves the purpose of stringing together the flowers of the Vedanta passages.

Why should we study Brahma Sutra?

The Upanishads seem to be full of contradiction at first. Brahma Sutra reconcile the conflicting statements of the Upanishads. 

  1. Comprehensive Synthesis: The Brahma Sutra provides a systematic and comprehensive synthesis of the diverse philosophical concepts and teachings found in the Upanishads. 

  2. Clarification of Complex Concepts: The Upanishads contain profound metaphysical and philosophical concepts that can be challenging to comprehend fully. The Brahma Sutra acts as a guide and commentary, helping to clarify these complex ideas and resolve potential contradictions or inconsistencies.

  3. Spiritual Practice Guidance: The Brahma Sutra dedicates an entire chapter, the Sadhana Pada, to the practical aspects of spiritual practice. It discusses different paths, such as meditation, devotion, and rituals, and their relevance in the journey toward realizing Brahman.

  4. Personal Transformation: The study of the Brahma Sutra offers the potential for personal transformation and spiritual growth. 

Details of Chapters: –

Chapter 1: Samanvaya Adhyaya (Unity of Thought)

Exploring the unity and coherence of the Upanishadic teachings. Discussing the relationship between the individual texts and their collective message.

Welcome to “Unleashing the Power Within: Celebrating International Yoga Day 2023”!


International Yoga Day serves as a global platform to highlight the profound impact of yoga on our physical, mental, and spiritual dimensions.

As the world comes together to honour and embrace the transformative practice of yoga, we embark on a journey of self-discovery, inner peace, and holistic well-being. Yoga is a path that leads us to the very core of our being, guiding us towards a state of harmony, clarity, and profound connection. It is an invitation to go beyond the external facade and tap into the boundless potential that lies within.

The word “YOGA” has been derived from the Sanskrit word “YUJ”. This means “to Connect or to Combine”. In very simple word it is “UNION”.

∪ ⇒ Union: Union with Source (Brahman/ Purusha)

Let us explore Yogic Approach: Patanjali Yoga sutras!

On the day of International Yoga Day, it is essential to acknowledge and honour the profound wisdom encapsulated in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Patanjali’s teachings serve as a guiding light, illuminating the path of yoga and its transformative potential. The Yoga Sutras outline a systematic framework for the practice of yoga, offering insights into the mind, consciousness, and the journey towards self-realization. These ancient sutras provide timeless wisdom that transcends cultural and geographical boundaries, reminding us of the holistic nature of yoga, encompassing physical, mental, and spiritual dimensions.
The Yoga Sutras, compiled by the sage Patanjali, consists of 196 aphorisms (sutras) divided into four chapters (padas). Patanjali's work serves as a guidebook for understanding and practicing Raja Yoga.

Chapter One: Samadhi Pada: 

The essence of Patanjali’s Yoga sutra is in the second sutra (1.2):

“yogashchittavrittinirodhah” [sutra-1.2]:

Yoga is for the control of thought-waves in the mind. To still the fluctuating mind.

Chapter Two: Sadhana Pada:

“Ashtanga Yoga”

1. Yama – Restraints.

2. Niyama – Observances.

3. Asana -Physical postures.

4. Pranayama – Control of Prana (Breathing control).

5. Pratyahara – Withdrawal of the senses.

6. Dharana – Concentration

7. Dhyana – Meditation.

8. Samadhi – Absorption.  

Chapter Three: Vibhuti Pada

This chapter focuses on the attainment of supernatural powers (siddhis) through yogic practices. 

Dharana, Dhyana & Samadhi: These three limbs together lead aspirants to the ultimate goal. 

Chapter Four: Kaivalya Pada

This chapter elucidates the concept of Kaivalya, which means liberation or absolute freedom.

It enters into the state of transcendence, where the individual self merges with the universal consciousness, attaining liberation from the cycle of birth and death.

The chapter concludes by emphasizing that through self-realization, one achieves eternal peace and liberation from suffering.

Ashtanga Yoga stands out as one of the most renowned and fundamental systems of yoga.

With its dynamic and structured approach, it has gained widespread recognition and popularity.  Ashtanga Yoga offers a holistic path towards physical strength, mental clarity, emotional balance, and spiritual growth. Here are some key reasons why Ashtanga Yoga is highly regarded:

  1. Holistic Well-being: Ashtanga Yoga encompasses the eight limbs of yoga, addressing physical, mental, and spiritual dimensions.
  2. Physical Strength and Flexibility: The practice of Ashtanga Yoga involves dynamic and challenging asana sequences.
  3. Mental Clarity and Focus: Ashtanga Yoga incorporates breath control and concentration techniques. Through steady practice, it cultivates mental clarity, focus, and the ability to calm the mind.
  4. Emotional Balance: Ashtanga Yoga facilitates emotional well-being by promoting self-awareness and self-regulation. The practice helps release emotional tension, reduces anxiety, and cultivates a sense of inner peace and balance.
  5. Self-Discipline and Commitment: Ashtanga Yoga requires commitment to a regular practice. It fosters self-discipline, willpower, and the ability to overcome challenges on and off the mat.
  6. Purification and Detoxification: The dynamic nature of Ashtanga Yoga, combined with focused breathing, stimulates the internal organs, enhances circulation, and supports the body’s natural detoxification processes.
  7. Spiritual Growth and Self-Realization: Ashtanga Yoga provides a pathway for spiritual exploration and self-realization. It guides practitioners towards deepening their connection with their inner selves, discovering their true nature, and experiencing states of unity, peace, and transcendence.
  8. Sense of Community: Ashtanga Yoga has a strong community aspect, fostering a sense of support, camaraderie, and shared growth. Practitioners often gather in dedicated spaces, creating a supportive environment for learning and personal development.


Yoga extends far beyond being a mere physical activity; it is the profound engagement of the mind. Its essence lies in cultivating a state of tranquillity and harmony within the depths of our consciousness. The ultimate goal of yoga is to attain a mind devoid of fluctuations—a stillness that allows our true essence to shine forth. Through the dedicated practice of yoga, we learn to quiet the incessant chatter of the mind and discover a serene space where true wisdom resides. It is in this stillness that we experience a profound union with our higher self, a connection that transcends the boundaries of our individual identity.

Fatherhood and Beyond: Unveiling the Deeper Meaning of Father’s Day

Greetings! Happy Father’s Day to all dear fathers.

Introduction: The Power of Fatherly Love: Celebrating Father’s Day with Gratitude”

Father’s Day is a special occasion dedicated to honouring and celebrating the paternal figures in our lives. Beyond the gifts and gestures, it presents an opportunity to delve into the profound significance of fatherhood from a philosophical and scholarly standpoint. In this article, we explore the multifaceted role of fathers, their impact on individuals and society, and contemplate their place in the broader context of Vedanta philosophy.

The Role of Fathers:

Fathers play a crucial role in shaping the lives of their children. They serve as providers, protectors, and guides, offering love, support, and wisdom along life’s journey. A father’s influence extends beyond the immediate family, contributing to the fabric of society at large. Through their actions and teachings, fathers instil values, impart knowledge, and help cultivate the character of their children.

The Impact of Fatherhood:

Research has shown the positive effects of involved and caring fathers on child development. A father’s presence fosters emotional stability, enhances cognitive abilities, and promotes healthy social relationships. By being actively engaged in their children’s lives, fathers contribute to their overall well-being and growth, offering a unique perspective and complementary nurturing style.

Vedantic Perspective on Fatherhood:

Vedanta, a philosophical tradition rooted in ancient Indian wisdom, emphasizes the interconnectedness of all beings and the pursuit of self-realization. From this perspective, fatherhood is seen as a divine opportunity for spiritual growth and service.

In the realm of generation and procreation, the role of the father, while significant, cannot be isolated or fully appreciated without acknowledging the indispensable presence of the mother. From a spiritual perspective, this divine dance of creation embodies the harmonious interplay between masculine and feminine energies, symbolizing the fundamental duality of existence.

In Vedanta, the relationship between a father and child symbolizes the eternal bond between the individual soul (jivatma) and the supreme soul (Paramatma). Just as a father provides for his child’s needs, the Supreme Being sustains and nourishes all of creation. Recognizing this connection, fatherhood becomes a sacred duty and an opportunity for selfless service, aligning one’s actions with the universal harmony.

Lessons from Fatherhood:

Fatherhood teaches us profound lessons about life, love, and sacrifice. It reminds us of the importance of selflessness, as fathers often put the needs of their children above their own. The unconditional love and support received from a father become the foundation upon which individuals build their lives, instilling values that guide them even in adulthood.

Moreover, fatherhood serves as a powerful reminder of the impermanence of life and the need to appreciate and cherish every moment. Children grow up quickly, and fathers play an essential role in helping them navigate the world and find their purpose. This transient nature of fatherhood urges us to make the most of the time we have with our fathers, expressing our gratitude and affection while they are still present in our lives.

Four key words—role model, mentorship, provider, and support—paint a picture of the invaluable contributions fathers make in our lives. They shape us, guide us, provide for us, and uplift us. Let us celebrate and express our heartfelt gratitude for their profound impact on Father’s Day and every day.


Father’s Day provides an occasion to reflect on the profound impact fathers have on individuals and society. Through their presence, guidance, and love, fathers shape the lives of their children, fostering personal growth, and contributing to the betterment of the world. Vedanta philosophy reminds us of the sacredness of fatherhood, highlighting the opportunity for spiritual growth and selfless service that it entails.

Through selflessness and devotion, he illuminates the path of his children, kindling the flame of their spirits, and instilling in them the virtues that will guide them on their journey. As we celebrate fathers today, let us acknowledge their profound role in shaping lives, and honor the eternal bond they share with the source of all creation. May fathers be blessed with strength, wisdom, and love, and may their spirits continue to shine brightly as beacons of light in the lives of their children.

Holistic Path of Lifelong Love and Loyalty:


In today’s fast-paced and chaotic world, finding and maintaining a lifelong, fulfilling relationship can seem like an elusive dream. However, for those who embrace the holistic path of lifelong love and loyalty, it is possible to cultivate deep and lasting connections that withstand the tests of time.

Hello Friends! Greetings!!

Welcome to this exploration of holistic bonding, where life partners embark on a journey of profound connection, nurturing their souls and intertwining their hearts in a harmonious dance of love and growth.

Holistic love and loyalty go beyond mere surface-level attraction or fleeting infatuation.

Holistic love encompasses a profound understanding of oneself, one’s partner, and the dynamics that exist between them. It requires a commitment to growth, both individually and as a couple, as well as an unwavering dedication to navigating life’s challenges together.

To truly know and understand oneself is the foundation upon which a strong partnership is built. By exploring our values, beliefs, strengths, and weaknesses, we can approach our relationships with authenticity and clarity. This self-awareness allows us to bring our whole selves into the relationship, fostering a deep sense of connection and mutual understanding.

Life partners play a significant role in our journey.

Offering companionship, support, and love is the true essence of a fulfilling partnership which extends even beyond mere companionship. Thereby they grow together intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. 

 Intellectual Growth:

A holistic life partner understands the value of intellectual growth and encourages each other to expand their knowledge and perspectives. They engage in stimulating conversations, share ideas, and challenge each other intellectually. By fostering a supportive environment for learning, they inspire personal and professional growth, enabling both partners to reach their full potential. 

 Emotional Support:

Emotional well-being is crucial for a fulfilling life, and a holistic life partner recognizes the significance of emotional support. Through active listening and empathy, they offer comfort during challenging times and celebrate joys together. By nurturing emotional intimacy, they create a strong foundation of trust and understanding, enabling both partners to navigate life’s ups and downs with resilience and compassion.

Spiritual Connection:

Spiritual dimension is an integral part of their relationship. They respect each other’s spiritual beliefs, whether religious or philosophical, and engage in practices that nurture their spiritual connection. Together, they explore shared values, engage in meaningful rituals, and support each other’s spiritual growth. This spiritual bond adds depth to their relationship, offering solace, purpose, and a shared sense of transcendence.

 Growth and Development:

Growth and personal development are highly important to pursue individual goals and dreams. They become cheerleaders, motivators, and sounding boards, helping one another overcome challenges and celebrate achievements. By fostering an environment that prioritizes growth, they inspire each other to step outside their comfort zones, learn from experiences, and evolve into the best versions of themselves.

Importance of loyalty in building a holistic and secure bond between life partners: 

Loyalty serves as a vital pillar in any relationship, and its significance becomes even more pronounced in the context of life partners. Loyalty forms the foundation of a holistic and secure bond, creating an atmosphere of trust, commitment, and emotional safety.

Loyalty builds trust, which is essential for the growth and sustainability of a relationship. When life partners are loyal to each other, they establish a sense of emotional security. They can rely on one another, knowing that their partner will always be there for them, both in good times and bad. By being loyal, partners create a safe space where they can freely express themselves without the fear of betrayal or judgment.

Loyalty strengthens the commitment between life partners. When both individuals are loyal to each other, they demonstrate a willingness to prioritize the relationship above all else. 


The essence of a holistic husband-wife relationship lies in the pillars of trust and loyalty, crucial for nurturing a lifelong partnership. By fostering open communication, empathy, mutual respect, and shared growth, couples create a solid foundation of trust, ensuring a deep connection that endures. With unwavering loyalty, couples can navigate challenges, celebrating each other’s triumphs and offering unwavering support, thus sustaining a lifelong partnership built on trust, loyalty, and a shared commitment to love, growth, and fulfilment.

Please send your feedback and suggestion. This article is dedicated to all Couples. Read together and enjoy. With Love! ARUN❤️😊🙏🤝

What is Non-Duality?


What is non-duality?

Non-duality, also known as Advaita Vedanta, is a philosophical and spiritual concept that originated in ancient India. Non-Duality means there is ultimately no fundamental separation between the self (Atman) and the ultimate reality (Brahman) or between any other entities or phenomena in existence. Non-duality asserts that the true nature of reality is a single, undivided, and indivisible whole.

The Upanishads collectively offer deep philosophical and spiritual insights into non-duality.

What is Advaita Vedanta?

Advaita Vedanta is a philosophical and spiritual tradition rooted in the ancient scriptures of India, particularly the Upanishads, which are considered the culmination of Vedic wisdom. “Advaita” translates to “non-duality” or “not-two” and “Vedanta” means “the culmination of knowledge.”

Pioneer of Advaita Vedanta


The primary figure considered as the pioneer of Advaita Vedanta is Adi Shankaracharya, a philosopher and spiritual leader who lived in India during the 8th century CE. Shankaracharya is credited with reviving and systematizing the Advaita Vedanta tradition, consolidating its teachings and establishing Mathas (monastic centres) to preserve and propagate its principles.

Non-duality holds significant importance in human beings: 

Dissolution of suffering:

Non-duality suggests that the root cause of suffering is the illusion of separation and the identification with the ego or individual self. By realizing the non-dual nature of reality, individuals can transcend the limitations of the ego and experience a sense of peace, contentment, and liberation from suffering.

Unity and interconnectedness:

Non-duality emphasizes the underlying unity and interconnectedness of all existence. Recognizing this interconnectedness can foster a sense of compassion, empathy, and understanding towards others and the world around us. 

Transcendence of duality and conflicts:

Non-duality challenges the dualistic thinking that often leads to conflicts, divisions, and polarization. By transcending the perception of separateness, individuals can cultivate a more inclusive and harmonious approach to relationships, society, and global issues.

Expanded consciousness and awareness:

Non-duality invites individuals to go beyond the limited boundaries of the ego and expand their consciousness and awareness. It encourages exploration of the nature of perception, thought, and consciousness itself, leading to deeper insights into the nature of reality and the self.

Freedom from limitations and conditioning:

Non-duality invites individuals to question and transcend conditioned beliefs, concepts, and societal conditioning. It encourages a direct investigation into the nature of one’s own experience, allowing for the possibility of breaking free from limiting patterns and beliefs and opening up to new possibilities.

Transcendence of the ego:

Non-duality challenges the ego’s dominance and invites individuals to see through the illusion of a separate, individual self. By transcending the ego, individuals can experience a sense of freedom, liberation, and a deeper connection to the essence of being.

It's important to note that while non-duality holds these potential benefits, the journey towards understanding and experiencing non-duality is deeply personal and can vary from individual to individual. 

In non-dual philosophy, the ultimate reality, often referred to as Brahman, is considered to be infinite, timeless, and transcendent. It is beyond the grasp of ordinary perception and conceptualization. The self, or Atman, which is often associated with individual consciousness, is understood to be identical to Brahman. From this perspective, the individual self is not separate from the ultimate reality; it is an expression or manifestation of it.

There are a few figures who have explored the relationship between science and non-duality:

Erwin Schrödinger:

Schrödinger was an Austrian physicist who made significant contributions to the development of quantum mechanics. He was also deeply interested in Eastern philosophies, particularly Vedanta, which influenced his scientific thinking. Schrödinger saw parallels between the non-dual concepts of Vedanta and the fundamental principles of quantum physics. His book “What Is Life?” explores the relationship between physics and consciousness.

Fritjof Capra:

Capra is an Austrian-born physicist and systems theorist. In his book “The Tao of Physics,” he explores the parallels between Eastern mysticism, particularly Taoism and Buddhism, and modern physics, including quantum mechanics. Capra suggests that both Eastern mysticism and quantum physics challenge the prevailing Cartesian-Newtonian worldview and point towards a more holistic and interconnected understanding of reality.

Amit Goswami:

Goswami is a theoretical physicist and author who has written extensively on the relationship between science and spirituality. In his book “The Self-Aware Universe,” he explores the implications of quantum physics for consciousness and proposes a framework that integrates non-dual spiritual concepts with scientific understanding. 

Rupert Spira:

Spira is a contemporary British philosopher and teacher of non-duality. Although not a scientist himself, he often engages with scientific ideas and draws upon scientific findings, particularly in the fields of neuroscience and quantum physics, to support and elucidate the non-dual understanding of reality. 

David Bohm:

Bohm was a prominent theoretical physicist who made significant contributions to quantum mechanics and the philosophy of physics. He explored the implications of quantum physics for understanding consciousness and the nature of reality. Bohm’s book “Wholeness and the Implicate Order” presents his holistic worldview, drawing parallels between non-dual concepts and the interconnectedness revealed in quantum theory.

Carl Jung:

Jung, a renowned Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, explored the realms of the unconscious mind and collective consciousness. He recognized the importance of mystical experiences and spiritual insights in psychological development. Jung’s concepts of the collective unconscious and synchronicity, which involve a transcendent interconnectedness, resonate with non-dual perspectives.


Non-duality is a profound philosophical and spiritual concept, it can be challenging to fully grasp through intellectual understanding alone. It often requires a direct experiential realization that goes beyond conceptual knowledge. Advaita Vedanta posits that the world of multiplicity and diversity is an apparent reality, a product of ignorance (avidya). The ultimate truth is the non-dual, all-pervading consciousness, which is beyond any conceptual or empirical understanding.

 “This Atman (Self) cannot be attained through study of the Vedas, nor through intelligence, nor through much learning. He who chooses Atman—by him alone is Atman attained. It is Atman that reveals to the seeker Its true nature.” [from Katha Upanishad: 1.2.23.]

The Power of Friendship:

Greetings to you my dear friends!

The Power of Friendship: Building Meaningful Connections.

Photo by cottonbro studio on


Friendship as a sacred connection goes beyond the conventional understanding of friendship and taps into a deeper, spiritual dimension. Here I would like to share my views on Friendship. Please share your views through comments.

What is friendship?

Genuine friendships transcend superficial differences such as age, social status, cultural background, and material wealth. True friends accept and support each other regardless of these factors, focusing on the deeper connection and shared values that bind them together. Friendship is built on mutual trust, respect, and understanding, forming a bond that goes beyond external circumstances and societal divisions. It is a beautiful reminder that true friendship can flourish among individuals from diverse backgrounds, enriching our lives with their unique perspectives and experiences.

The root word of friendship:

The English word “friendship” comes from Old English “freondscipe,” which means “friendship, mutual liking and regard”. The word “friend” is cognate with Old Frisian “friend,” Old Dutch “friunt,” Old High German “friunt,” and Old Icelandic “frændi,” among others. All of these words are ultimately descended from the same word, which is a noun formed from the present participle of the Germanic base of the word “free”. The Proto-Germanic word for “friendship” is “*frijōndiskapiz”The word “friend” is related to “freedom” and “love”.

Friendship is a universal phenomenon that transcends age and social positions. Family members, including parents, grandparents, and siblings, can develop deep and meaningful friendships that combine the love and care of a familial bond with the qualities of friendship. 

Parent-Child Friendship:

A parent-child relationship is typically rooted in love, care, and responsibility. However, it can also evolve into a friendship characterized by trust, understanding, and mutual respect. As children grow older and develop their own identities, parents can transition from purely authoritative figures to supportive friends who offer guidance, companionship, and a safe space for open communication. Parent-child friendships are built on a foundation of unconditional love and can serve as a source of strength and emotional support throughout life.

Grandparent-Grandchild Friendship:

Grandparents often play a unique role in a child’s life. As they have already experienced the responsibilities of parenthood, they can embrace a more relaxed and nurturing dynamic with their grandchildren. This relationship can evolve into a warm and cherished friendship. Grandparents can offer wisdom, life lessons, and a wealth of experiences, while grandchildren bring joy, energy, and a fresh perspective. The mutual love and respect between grandparents and grandchildren can form a strong and enduring friendship that bridges the generational gap.

Sibling Friendship:

Sibling relationships are a blend of familial bonds and friendship. Brothers and sisters share common experiences, grow up together, and develop a deep understanding of one another. Siblings can become confidants, companions, and pillars of support, forming lifelong friendships grounded in shared memories, unconditional love, and a sense of belonging.

Support and Companionship:

Family friendships provide a strong support system and companionship. They offer a safe and familiar space to share thoughts, feelings, and life’s challenges. The shared bond of friendship within the family unit creates a sense of belonging and reassurance that one is not alone.

The impact of holy and unholy friendships on society.

Under holy friendships, humanity experiences a transformative and uplifting impact. Holy friendships inspire individuals to embody virtues such as compassion, kindness, honesty, and selflessness. This positive influence ripples out to the broader society, fostering a culture of empathy, cooperation, and social harmony. Holy friendships encourage individuals to contribute to the greater good, engage in acts of service, and work towards the betterment of humanity as a whole. They promote personal growth, moral development, and the cultivation of a virtuous character, leading to a society that values compassion, justice, and ethical behaviour.

Impact of unholy friendships.

Unholy friendships may involve the exchange or reinforcement of harmful beliefs, behaviours, or practices. When people with destructive intentions or ideologies form alliances, they can amplify and disseminate negative influences throughout the society or nation, potentially leading to increased violence, discrimination, or other harmful actions. Unholy friendships have a detrimental impact on humanity. These friendships often foster negative behaviours, encourage self-centeredness, and perpetuate harmful patterns. Individuals influenced by unholy friendships may engage in unethical actions, exhibit a lack of empathy, and prioritize personal gain over the well-being of others. This can lead to a breakdown of trust, social divisions, and a general decline in the collective moral compass.

Unholy friendships contribute to societal issues such as greed, corruption, discrimination, and injustice, creating an environment that is characterized by conflict, selfishness, and a disregard for the common good.

The impact of holy and unholy friendships on humanity extends beyond individual relationships. The collective influence of these friendships shapes societal values, norms, and behaviours. Holy friendships uplift society by promoting virtues and inspiring positive change, while unholy friendships contribute to the erosion of moral standards and hinder social progress. The choices individuals make regarding their friendships, whether they prioritize cultivating holy connections or succumb to unholy influences, have far-reaching consequences for the overall well-being and moral fabric of humanity.

Unconditional Love and Acceptance:

Holy friendships are characterized by a profound sense of unconditional love and acceptance. Friends in such relationships offer support, understanding, and forgiveness without judgment or expectation.

Spiritual Nourishment:

Just as spiritual practices nourish the soul; holy friendships can provide spiritual nourishment. These friendships often involve deep conversations, contemplation of life’s purpose, and exploration of existential questions.

Transformation and Growth:

Holy friendships have the power to transform individuals. Through their shared experiences and support, friends can encourage each other to break through limiting beliefs, overcome challenges, and embrace personal transformation.

Higher Purpose and Connection:

Holy friendships often involve a shared sense of higher purpose or a connection to something beyond the individual self. Friends may engage in acts of service, volunteer work, or spiritual practices together, deepening their bond and strengthening their connection to a greater spiritual reality. 


Friendship as a sacred connection goes beyond surface-level interactions and taps into the spiritual dimension of human relationships. It involves shared values, unconditional love, and acceptance, providing spiritual nourishment, facilitating personal growth and transformation, and fostering compassion, empathy, and a connection to something greater.
