Formula given by Scriptures on Contentment

In the present times of heavy social media influence, it is quite challenging to be content in life. Every day, there is a new trend in fashion, home interiors, food, relationships, cars, gadgets and so on. What was 'wow' becomes outdated very soon. It is very easy to forget the purpose of life and be carried away in the pursuit of these never-ending charms. So, what do scriptures say about contentment? During my study of scriptures, I came across a beautiful formula on contentment. When I applied this formula to the context of my life, I found it to be a valuable teaching and…

3 lessons I learnt from Ekadasi fasting

I never liked fasting and always ate food to my heart's content.(There are so many types of fasting and the fasting I am referring here is staying for a complete day only on minimum consumption of fruits). Yes, I am a foodie and I love food. I even eat food happily on Shivaratri without any guilt. Hunger was too much of suffering for me and I did not believe in such suffering. So, what made me do fasting? Its Lord Krishna. Since the time I studied Mahabharata, I fell in love with Lord Krishna. He is an amazing personality and studying his pastimes and…

My Law of karma experience with Bhagavad Gita

I have been trying to read Bhagavad Gita since 2007. But I could not move beyond first 2 chapters. I tried translation and interpretation by different authors. And then, I tried youtube lectures by different orators. But everytime I attempted, I just could not move beyond 2nd chapter. Some work used to come after 2nd chapter and I would stop reading there thinking I will continue it next day but I could not pick it up. In these 14 years, I would have attempted more than 15 times to read this book but my efforts failed. I am a voracious reader and I read…

My experience with 100 days of higher meditations

When it came to higher meditations, my mind always asked me - "why should I spend 1.5 to 2.5 hrs on higher meditations when life is already wonderful with wellness meditation which takes only 30 mins to 45 mins?". This question stopped me from doing higher meditations for many years. I practiced them now and then but was not committed. I learnt higher meditations in 2009 and in these 12 years, I did 100 days of higher meditations only twice when I needed a big miracle. After years of wellness meditation, service and tithing, life has become pretty smooth and my mind resisted the…

6 tips to become regular with meditation

We all know the importance and benefits of meditation and we really want to meditate. But some of us struggle with regularity when it comes to meditation. Our knowledge does not translate into practice. We will find time for exercise, internet browsing, travel, books , entertainment, time pass but not for meditation. This happened to me multiple times in my spiritual journey of 12 years and those times frustrated me. For me, meditation is a need. It is not a luxury or an optional pursuit. If I don't meditate a day, I feel my day to be incomplete. So, inability to meditate felt like…

My Experiences with Wellness Meditation and Tithing

Namaste It's only apt to call it is as The Wellness Meditation as it really helps you in overall wellbeing in all aspects of life. I have been doing the wellness meditation since about 6 years. In the last 6 years, my experience has been that whenever I start meditating I see some positive change in my life in some or the other aspect. Of course, just like most human beings, I also lack consistency and have had big breaks in between and haven't been able to do it regularly. After every break from meditation, my life becomes chaotic. Please do not misunderstand that…

10 lessons I learnt from Mahabharata

Being an Indian, Mahabharata is not something new to me. Since my childhood, I have seen, read, listened to various versions and stories from Mahabharata. I loved all those movies and stories which revolved around pandavas and kauravas. But these could not satisfy me and I desired for a teacher who can explain this gripping story from the viewpoint of a spiritual seeker. Finally, I found such teacher in Samavedam Shanmukha Sarma garu. He is a brilliant scholar and orator in Telugu. And he is also a Guru for many seekers. By chance, on YouTube, I came across his discourses on complete Mahabharata. It…
