When marrying…

This is an extremely important piece of advice for young people who are single and intend to get married.

People are mostly attracted by impermanent factors such as good looks, wealth, and status, and they completely overlook the fact that nothing stays the same forever.

It would be worth reflecting on the quote by Friedrich Nietzsche before taking any major decision in life.

Tavamithram’s VEGAN Decade

I am no expert on the subject, but I did a hell of a lot of research on the subject. I am not educating you on the subject, but I am only asking you to come out of your bubble of ignorance spread by gargantuan industries with vested interests, and to set your mind on researching the subject of plant-based nutrition.

Being healthy, strong, fit, and youthful certainly does not call for hurting animals, misusing them, abusing them, being cruel to them, drinking their liquids, or eating them.

Respect Mother Nature by being kind to all living beings, including yourselves. Your stomach is not a resting place for dead animals, nor do you, as an adult, need to drink mammary milk or consume anything made from it!

“Oh, but that is part of our culture and traditions, and that’s what our elders have always done,” is a typical argument of people who are closed to evolution, be it spiritual, cultural, or dietary. It would be worthwhile remembering that every ‘tradition’ or ‘custom’ has its source in some individual’s mind or rather, from one individual’s choice, which could have been simply to satisfy some need they had at some point in time. Another reason could be that old metaphors were taken too literally.

यद्यदाचरति श्रेष्ठस्तत्तदेवेतरो जनः |
स यत्प्रमाणं कुरुते लोकस्तदनुवर्तते || ३ २१ ||
yadhyadaa-charathi shresht-has-
thattha-devetaro janaha
sa yat-pramaaNam kurute
lokastha-dhanu-varthathe (SBG 3:21)
Krishna says: Whatever or whichever action an important person does, others follow him and emulate him. What he does becomes a standard for the others.

A certain ‘custom’ started by an ‘important person’ is followed en masse by people who are around that person. A large number of people then blindly follow those traditions without challenging them or questioning them, only because an important individual practised them, and doing so quickly becomes a social custom.

Remember that arguments and excuses such as ‘My forefathers have been doing it, and so I too would continue doing it, are neither sensible nor intelligent. We should not be forgetting that our forefathers lived their lives with no cars, aircraft, computers, mobile phones and Social Media!

Throughout decades and centuries, the practices of a certain ‘important person’ change and are modified, resulting in bizarre practices that have little in common with the original idea that led the first man to practise them! The worst part is that people take metaphors literally and spin even more far-fetched stories about religion with the intent of justifying their meaningless religious practices. People who adhere to such practices are considered to be pious while those who do not follow meaningless traditions but ask questions are considered to be rebellious and are kept at a distance by their own folks!

When someone comes up with silly arguments in support of animal abuse, simply ask them to substantiate what they are saying using the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. Just ask them to show you where in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Krishna asked His followers to steal milk from poor cows, drink it, or kill and eat animals. .

Vegetarianism and ‘non-vegetarianism’

Most vegetarians believe they have a clean conscience because they do not consume meat. However, they also never care to go to visit dairy farms to see for themselves the pathetic condition of the bovine animals whose mammary secretion they drink. But by relying on TV ads and movies funded by major dairy, food, and medical industries to brainwash the masses into believing dairy products are good for health, they even force their children to consume dairy products.

Think about it. Is there any mammal in the world that drinks mammary milk in its adulthood? Not even cows and bulls, whose mothers’ milk humans so rightfully take and consume do such a thing! Humans are the only species to do so and more so, they consume the baby growth fluid of another species! All female mammals produce mammary milk for THEIR OWN YOUNG ONES and NOT for the young ones of other animals. And definitely not for those of another species! 

Having completed 10 years of being pure vegan, after studying the subject in depth for an even longer amount of time, and after experiencing amazingly rejuvenating health benefits not only due to my vegan diet but also due to my regular workouts, I strongly advocate an animal-free diet for humans, which means no animal-derived foods whatsoever.

To go 100% VEGAN is a decision that each individual should be making for himself or herself. I am glad I made mine a decade ago.

आयुःसत्त्वबलारोग्यसुखप्रीतिविवर्धनाः |
रस्याः स्निग्धाः स्थिरा हृद्या आहाराः सात्त्विकप्रियाः || १७ ८ ||
aayuhu-sattvabalaarogya-
sukha-preetivi-vardhanaaha
rasyaaha snigdhaaha sthiraa hridyaa
aahaaraaha saattvika-priyaaha (SBG 17:08)
Foods which augment life, purity, strength, health, happiness and contentment, which are delicious, succulent, substantial and agreeable, are dear to people with the Sattva Guna.

A good starting point would be removing blinders that you might have in the form of blindly following traditions, and, refusing to be fooled by ‘Krishna organisations’ who scream at the top of their voices that Krishna loved to drink milk and eat butter.

Some organisations con the masses by saying they sell ‘ahimsa milk’!

Whatever that term means!

Take extreme care and make sure that whatever you send down your oesophagus is good for your body, mind and soul, and not that you are a dumb and brainwashed customer and guinea pig of the food, dairy, and medical industries.

Now, get this straight – The cow is its calf’s mother and no one else’s. No cow ever rang the bell of a milkman and offered her milk for human children, nor did any animal go to a slaughterhouse and commit suicide so that they could be eaten by humans who stupidly believe that animal meat is the only source of protein.

Ask any cancer patient, and they will tell you that one of the first changes they had to make in life in order to prolong their life was to GO VEGAN.

All beings are equal, and no creature is superior or inferior.

समं सर्वेषु भूतेषु तिष्ठन्तं परमेश्वरम् |

tisht-hantam parameshvaram
vinashyatsva-vinashyantam
yah pashyati sa pashyati
(SBG 13:27 or 13:28 in some editions)
Krishna says: The person who truly sees is the one who sees the Supreme Soul existing equally in all beings – the unperishing within the perishing.

Forgive but never forget

It is quite natural to feel upset, angry or even hateful towards people who might have wronged you in the past. However, realistically speaking, if you carried such negative feelings, it will only be you whom those feelings will hurt. Whether you think, or not think, of the person who you believe wronged you, it will only be you who will undergo pain, and certainly not that person to whom your thinking will not make even the slightest difference.

Treat every experience as a great learning opportunity that makes you wiser.

For a true seeker, everyone and every situation is a source of knowledge and therefore, a teacher.

Have you read Sage Dattatreya’s Avadhuta Gita, or have you at least heard about it? It is one of the ultimate scriptures to comprehend Advaita vedanta.

Sage Dattatreya also known as Avadhuta, had 24 gurus.

  1. Earth
  2. Water
  3. Air
  4. Fire
  5. Sky
  6. Moon
  7. Sun

Pathetic people and their pathetic lives

I can understand the lives of people, whose forefathers had converted to foreign religions either due to fear, greed, or whatever reason. But what about those whose forefathers faced it all, stood tall, protected the Vedic Sanatana Dharma, and passed it on so that the present generation could benefit from the highest knowledge of Vedanta?

How pathetic can such a huge number of people be, to not put in at least minimal efforts to study the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, which is called the nectar of all the Upanishads, instead of becoming mental slaves of non-existent imaginary deities and of beef-eating men and women claiming to be special divine people; join cults, sects, groups and subgroups; and actually choose to suffer all through their lives! How pathetic!

Now, get this straight: If you do something, no matter how ‘religious’ or ‘pious’ you might think it is, but expect something in return, including simply ‘wanting to please ‘god”; you would only be going against the main principle of KarmaYoga:

कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन |
मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते सङ्गोऽस्त्वकर्मणि || २ ४७ ||
karmaNye vaadhikaras te
maa phaleshu kadaachana
maa-karma-phala-hetur-bhuur-
maa te sango ‘stva karmaNi (SBG 2:47)
You only have the right to work, but never to claim its results. The results of your actions should never be your motive but at the same time, you should not be attached to inaction.

How miserable can people be, particularly those who consider themselves to be educated and knowledgeable, to ‘pray’ for special favours to something that does not even exist?

Please, remember that The Srimad Bhagavad Gita is an allegorical representation of one’s whole life. The Pandavas and the Kauravas are the positive and negative forces that continuously battle within one’s mind. Arjuna had Krishna as his own driver all through the war, but did he ever ask Krishna to ‘perform miracles’ and solve his problems? NO! Arjuna placed himself as a pupil of Krishna. See Shloka SBG 2:07. The moment any person, no matter m or f, positions himself or herself as an ‘Arjuna’, their ‘Krishna’ will appear and guide them through life. What I mean by ‘their ‘Krishna’ will appear’ is that their mind, which was until then shrouded in ignorance, ego, selfishness, and stupidity in the name of religion, ‘shraddha’, ‘aasthaa’ or whatever, will become open to true knowledge.

Krishna says in Shloka SBG 9:11

अवजानन्ति मां मूढा मानुषीं तनुमाश्रितम् |
परं भावमजानन्तो मम भूतमहेश्वरम् || ९ ११ ||
avajaananti maam mood-haa
maanu-sheem tanu-maashritam
param bhaava-majaananto
mama bhoota-maheshvaram (SBG 9:11)
Foolish people, due to their lack of understanding of My higher nature as the Supreme Bhagavan of everything that exists, disregard Me when I descend in the human form.

What does the above Shloka mean? It simply means that FOOLISH PEOPLE do not understand HIS Universal Nature because of silly beliefs that were injected into their heads through generations and generations of people who either had no idea of what they were saying or doing, or did such things deliberately in order to keep people in a state of intellectual and spiritual stupor.

Stop all the nonsensical rites and rituals you perform with your poor understanding of Vedanta believing they would ‘make ‘god’ happy’ and be helpful or useful to you; and study the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. There cannot be anything more important for you in life than something that can set your whole life straight.

Click here to look for suitable Gita resources and swear never to be pathetic or lead a pathetic life filled with fear, greed, anger, hatred, laziness, and the lack of true Vedantic Knowledge, simply because you do not care to study the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and are willing to spread the disease of pseudo-spirituality to others and to future generations.

STOP ALL STUPIDITY AND TAKE TO KRISHNA’S TEACHINGS

The Bird and the Ant

The ‘I’ that most people think they are, is, in fact, their pseudo-self. The truth is that the Eternal SELF or the ALL-PERVADING CONSCIOUSNESS is indeed ALL-PERVADING. The lack of understanding of the TRUE ALL-PERVADING SELF, which is something that originates from one’s attachment and identification with their mortal body, is the one that causes the illusion of duality, leading to the mental delusion, which, in turn, causes pain and suffering. Attachment stems from FALSE EGO, the dualistic feeling of being separate, the lack of self-confidence, and from the fear of losing what one erroneously imagines possessing.

“Nothing unbearable shall ever happen,” is a quote from one of my revered teachers in life, Prof. B. Dashratharam. Reflect deeply over it, and you will see what great sense his timeless statement makes.

NEVER ALLOW MORTAL HUMANS AND PERISHABLE OBJECTS TO BRING YOU DOWN FROM YOUR HIGHEST STATE OF BEING THAT. 

You are far bigger than what you think you are. You are the ALL-PERVADING SELF, the LIMITLESS CONSCIOUSNESS, YOU ARE THAT – TAT TVAM ASI.

Watch Shri Adi Shankaracharya’s ‘Brahmajnanavalimala’

अन्तर्ज्योतिर्बहिर्ज्योतिः प्रत्यग्ज्योतिः परात्परः ।
ज्योतिर्ज्योतिः स्वयंज्योतिरात्मज्योतिः शिवोऽस्म्यहम्‌ ॥ २१ ॥

jyotirjyotih svayamjyotih Atmajyotih Sivo’smyaham…21
I am the auspicious one, the inner light and the outer light, the indwelling light, higher than the highest, the light of all lights, self-luminous, the light that is the Self. (21)

Mrs Sudha Murthy – WHAT IS GIVEN FOR FREE IS NEVER RESPECTED

I shall follow this hereafter, Madam. Thank you for your golden advice!

How true Mrs Sudha Murthy’s words are! She is someone I greatly admire.

One of my fervent desires is that I somehow get to meet her someday, and take her blessings and help in distributing my latest book ‘Capture the Essence – The Srimad Bhagavad Gita’ to our youth and school students at a price that is affordable to all. The book should clear most of the rubbish that occupies the heads of almost everyone due to generations and generations of faulty and nonsensical myths taught to them, and free them from all the meaningless rites and rituals they are forced to perform in the name of ‘bhakti’ and ‘religion’

In fact, I can think of so many people who were in absolutely miserable states of mind when they first came to this site and even got to speak with me personally. I gave them chunks of my most expensive and fast-depleting asset, called ‘time on the planet’- ALL FOR FREE. Some benefited, some didn’t because they were beyond all the’debrainwashing’ that I tried to do , and some even called me names for not being or talking like their ‘regular bearded babas and swamies’ not realising that I teach Vedanta through the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and not some bizarre trash in the name of religion or dogma.

Well, Mrs Sudha Murthy is right in saying that no one respects what comes for free, especially when it is from someone who wants nothing in return from you but merely wishes to see you lead a happy, enriching, and fulfilling life.

The vast treasures of Vedic literature can be overwhelming, unfathomable, and highly complex for many. However, the greatest gift that humankind has received is in the form of an amazing treatise, which forms the nectar of all the Vedic literature put together. It is the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, with 700 Shlokas in 18 chapters.

Although it usually takes about three to four hours to complete reading the 18 chapters, most people somehow tend to lack the enthusiasm to read the life-changing scripture thinking it is too deep and hard to understand, and they tend to push reading it for a later part of their life. This is exactly where the problem lies. Everyone has only one life as a particular individual, and time is rather running fast. Thanks to their ignorance as regards the Vedic nondualistic principle of the All-pervading Brahman personified as Krishna,  and due to faulty concepts of a separate being called ‘God’ residing in the skies, people let go of the chance to benefit from the highest level of all Vedic studies, namely Vedanta, which has been explained in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita in the most lucid manner.

This book, ‘Capture the Essence – Srimad Bhagavad Gita’, is short and precise but at the same time, defines and explains the most essential teachings of the Supreme Bhagavan Krishna. The time invested in it can easily be one that can alter the reader’s life perspective and their overall approach towards life, health, events in their life; their work, relationships, successes, failures, and goals in life.

Take action today. Get your copy of ‘Capture the Essence – Srimad Bhagavad Gita’  either the Paperback version or the e-book one, or both.

Master your mind and master your life. There is nothing outside your mind, anyway.

I? Ego? Love? Hate? Envy? ‘My god’ vs. ‘your god’? Religion?

I? Me? Mine? Ego? Love? Hate? Envy? ‘My god’ vs. ‘Your god’? Babas? Swamies? Ammas? Religion? Seriously?! How sickeningly moronic can humans be?!

When will people ever care to grow up?

Come out of all man-made religions and

STUDY VEDANTA.

The WHOLE is Indescribable, Indefinable, and Unimaginable. However, for the purpose of even attempting to understand it, Vedic scriptures use the term BRAHMAN also personified as KRISHNA.

ॐ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते ।
पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ॥
ॐ शांतिः शांतिः शांतिः ॥

Om poorna-madah poornamidam poornaat poornamudachyate
poornasya poorna maadaaya poorna mevaa-vashishyate
Om Shanti Shanti Shantihi.

The Invisible Absolute Brahman is complete, and this universe is complete. The visible complete whole comes from the Invisible, Perfect, and Complete Whole. Even when the complete visible whole is removed from the Invisible Complete Whole, the Absolute Brahman or the Complete Whole remains unchanged.
Aum, Peace, Peace, Peace.

NOW WATCH THIS!

Can you ever get more skeptical than the Nasadiya Sukta?

That was the Nasadiya Sukta from the Rig Veda.

Below is Shloka SBG 7:19

बहूनां जन्मनामन्ते ज्ञानवान्मां प्रपद्यते |
वासुदेवः सर्वमिति स महात्मा सुदुर्लभः || ७ १९ ||
bahoonaam janma naamante jnaana-vaan-maam prapadyate
vaasudevah sarvamiti sa mahaatmaa sudur-labhaha (SBG 7:19)
Therefore after innumerable births, the one who has perfected his or her wisdom, understanding fully My universal reality, surrenders to Me and such a soul is very rare.

Can anyone show me in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita if Krishna ever asked anyone to go to temples and pour stolen ‘baby calf growth fluid’ or bovine milk on His Vigrahas? NO! Krishna said in Shloka SBG 4:38 that there is nothing more purifying than KNOWLEDGE.

Remember that ‘god’ is not some person with a face, hands and legs, but is the personification of the infinite WHOLE.

Man suffers due to his own stupidity

Krishna says in Shloka SBG 13:04 (13:5 in some editions) that  “The truth has been stated in Vedic hymns and have been described in the Brahma Sutras through REASON AND LOGIC with unambiguous EVIDENCE.” Where is the question of ‘blind belief’ or not studying, researching, or asking questions?

Once you complete this post and video, please watch the video titled NO BLIND BELIEF – BUT REASON+LOGIC’ which is Video 93/100 of the 100 SBG Shlokas.

Always bear in mind that when you ‘believe’ in some ‘deity’, someone or something, there is bound to be someone who does not agree with you and that can turn out to be a major cause of conflict between you and them.

That is why ALL religions and belief systems are prime causes of division in human society. With the ‘I am holier than thou’ mindset, ‘religious’ people look down upon those who do not believe in what they believe in. Such an attitude breeds animosity between different groups with different belief systems.

Do not overlook the point that the Srimad Bhagavad Gita IS NOT A BELIEF SYSTEM, since it DOES NOT ASK ANYONE TO BELIEVE IN ANYTHING.

Towards the end of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita in Shloka SBG 18:63, Krishna says, “ I have taught you the secret wisdom which is deeper than all that is confidential and profound. REFLECT FULLY on what I have declared to you, and DO WHAT YOU WISH TO DO.”

So many people come to this site, read astrology-related pages, watch Mantra videos, aand do many things that cannot and will not cause even the slightest change in their lives, but somehow conveniently avoid all that I offer on this site and also through personal talks that can completely turn their lives around for the better. I write about astrological positions and so on only in order for you to better understand patterns in your life so that you may handle them more deftly but not get stuck with such posts forever!

How many have taken the ‘A.G.E Course – A Gita Experience with Tavamithram’ and two other free courses available on Udemy?

How many have taken the free SBG 100 Shlokas course that I offer on YouTube?

NOTHING AND NO ONE CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE, BUT IT IS YOUR OWN SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION THAT CAN DO IT.
When I say spiritual evolution, I do not mean going to temples and performing meaningless rites and rituals, but I mean gaining the TRUE KNOWLEDGE OF VEDANTA THROUGH THE SRIMAD BHAGAVAD GITA AND THE UPANISHADS.

I have met numerous highly evolved people and still do, but I do not sit down with their pictures or statues and keep chanting their names the whole day! I jot down all the amazing things they say, I learn to apply them in my life, and I MOVE ON! That’s called spiritual evolution.

So many people come to this site, read astrology-related pages, watch Mantra videos, aand do many things that cannot and will not cause even the slightest change in their lives, but somehow conveniently avoid all that I offer on this site and also through personal talks that can completely turn their lives around for the better. I write about astrological positions and so on only in order for you to better understand patterns in your life so that you may handle them more deftly but not get stuck with such posts forever!There are people who go to the Dhanu Rashi SadeSati page on this site every day and read the same post again, again, again, again, again, again, again, and again, and expect their life to change!

The reason behind such naivety and irrational thinking is twofold:
a. Utter ignorance
b. The dualistic view and belief that ‘god’ is some separate being floating in the sky ‘who will be pleased’ with the way you please him or her, and drop a suitcase full of money through your window, ‘organise’ a suitable partner for you, get you a well-paying job, or make your business successful!

Ever since I started this website in February 2014, have I not been diligently and patiently trying to encourage everyone to study the Srimad Bhagavad Gita for which, I, later on, came out with audiobooks, videos, paperbacks, e-books, and Udemy courses?

Let me tell you, I do not pity those who CHOOSE TO REMAIN IGNORANT despite all the Vedantic teachings I share with everyone on my websites and channels. Evolving is what one should be doing and not stagnating in low levels of meaningless beliefs, rituals, and all other such things from which, Krishna has clearly asked Arjuna to stay away.

Can anyone show me in the SBG if Krishna ever asked Arjuna to go to a temple and worship him, roll on the ground, poke himself with needles, starve himself to death, wear bizarre clothes, appear ugly and disgusting with unruly hair, spend all his time singing Krishna’s praise or pouring bovine milk on Krishna’s ‘vigrahas’? Then why do people do all such things that are of no use to them or to anyone? It is because their elders did the same thing! Isn’t it? So, do you simply copy what your elders did, even without asking how and why? How unintelligent that must be!

The most important things Krishna keeps driving into Arjuna’s head are: – to ask questions, – to shed ignorance, – to be socially responsible and perform his duty fearlessly and with no attachment to the result, and to realise that the Self in him and in all beings is the same All-Pervading Self, Brahman, Paramaartha Tattvam, or Krishna.  

Krishna goes as far as saying that for the one who has attained SELF-REALISATION, even the Vedas are not required.

Why do people have to complicate things and pretend to be religious?

Try asking yourself what prevents you from even setting your mind to studying the Srimad Bhagavad Gita.

Is it laziness? Ignorance? Stupidity? Irrational fears and beliefs? Someone told you that it is too profound and you cannot understand it without a ‘proper’guru?

What happens if you don’t succeed in finding the ‘right guru’?

Do you die an unenlightened soul?

Do not allow anyone to control your life.

The Srimad Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads are available to all. Krishna, the JagadGuru or Teacher of the World, is accessible to everyone. All you need to do is decide to take His guidance.

How about going through the Nasadiya Sukta before beginning any other Upanishadic studies?

Nasadiya Sukta

The Nasadiya Sukta is from the Rig Veda.

I truly wonder if there could be any skeptical person who could get more skeptical than the Nasadiya Sukta!

Below is a page containing some Gita Resources that I offer.

If you want to change your life, you need to change. Merely chanting Mantras, performing religious rites and rituals, or hanging around bearded, ochre-robed, and beef-eating babas and swamis, are sure ways to waste your time and ensure that you feel horrible about yourself at that grand moment of your departure from your Janma – whenever it happens.

I have been there – in those moments when I could feel my life leaving my body as if it were being sucked out of my throat. My destiny, however, has permitted me to stay back until this very moment. Those final seconds culminate into the grand climax of all that a person did and did not do in life. One can see visuals of years and decades of their own life fly through their mind in a matter of seconds. By the way, the final departure is the only certainty in life. Until then, you could strive to acquire knowledge, shed the layers and layers of mental conditioning that you have been through, and make your life as blissful as possible by working on learning to experience your True Divine Self.

Stop filling your children’s minds with the fear of the unknown, and other brain and intelligence-numbing stuff. Study the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and at least some prime Upanishads and impart the knowledge to your young ones. I did it with my child and I can see the wonder caused by such knowledge can that has shaped his character, mental attitude, his entire personality as a young individual, thus helping him blossom into a Responsible Soul.

GROW UP! Growing up is a natural and rational process!

Study the Srimad Bhagavad Gita.

Krishna Jayanti: the birth of Krishna IN YOU

नत्वेवाहं जातु नासं न त्वं नेमे जनाधिपाः |
न चैव न भविष्यामः सर्वे वयमतः परम् || २ १२ ||
na tvevaaham jaatu naasam
na tvam neme janaadhi-paaha
na chaiva na bhavishyaa-maha
sarve vayam-ataha param (SBG 2:12)

“There was never a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these kings. We will also never cease to exist.” (SBG 2:12)

KRISHNA, WHO SYMBOLISES THE WHOLE, IS TIMELESS. HE CANNOT BE BORN AND CAN NOT DIE.

This day needs to mark the birth of Krishna in you – or rather, the finest version of you that meets all the qualities of Krishna.

For this, one would need to study the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and persevere to emulate Krishna in real life. Krishna is the possibility that ordinary Jivatmas can become if they shed their ego, ignorance, and superstition, and acquire true knowledge taught by Krishna in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita.

Be smart; be socially responsible in all your thoughts, words, and deeds; carry no ego and selfishness; perform all your actions with total dedication, zero attachment, and as an offering unto Krishna.

Taking a resolution to live like Krishna, would be the true way of observing and celebrating ‘KRISHNA’S BIRTH’.

त्रैगुण्यविषया वेदा निस्त्रैगुण्यो भवार्जुन |

traiguNya-vishayaa vedaa
nistraiguNyo bhavaarjuna
nirdvandvo nithya-satthvastho
niryoga-kshema aatmavaan (SBG 2:45)
Vedic literature deals with subjects that fall under the three Gunas. O Arjuna, you should rise above the three, be free from the thoughts of acquisition and preservation, always remain in Sattva or goodness and be established in the Self. (SBG 2:45)

Just as a talented sculptor ‘uncovers’ a beautiful statue in a rock by shedding material around it, you too can be born as Krishna by shedding duality, dogma, superstition, fear, hate, envy, and all other negative qualities to uncover the Krishna in you.

अहमात्मा गुडाकेश सर्वभूताशयस्थितः |
अहमादिश्च मध्यं च भूतानामन्त एव च || १० २० ||
ahamaatmaa gudaakesha
sarva-bhootaa-shayas-thitaha
ahamaadish-cha madhyam cha
bhootaa-naam-anta eva cha (SBG 10:20)
I am the Self, O Gudakesha (Arjuna), situated within all living entities. I am the origin, the middle and also the end of all beings. (SBG 10:20)

Have a Blessed Krishna Jayanti and a new life as a new person.

Jai Shri Krishna

75th Indian Independence Day

The hymn is close to the hearts of over 1.4 billion people (as of 2022) worldwide.

The Indian National Anthem I rendered along with m son to my musical arrangement.

Tavamithram (Mithram) – a Vedanta teacher who is neither a baba nor a swami but just another common person who is passionate about children, family, people, nature, learning, music, adventure, life, living, and above all, the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, and Vedanta as a whole.

With great reverence, deep admiration, and heartfelt gratitude to all the fearless, committed and patriotic men, women, and children, who fought for India’s freedom, and to those brave men and women in uniform and others who have offered their entire lives in service of our Motherland. 

We live far away, but our hearts beat for our Motherland.

Jai Bharat Varsh
