  1. Dear Sir,

    I would like to write few things that one need to adopt during the period of Sade Sati and Shani Dasa.

    As you have stressed upon this in the past, I would like to reiterate that it is not a period of retribution but a period for course corrections. The following practical inputs would help:

    Take utmost precaution in everything that you do. Please do not be in a hurry to take decisions. Sudden impulsive decision should be avoided. In case you are in a low mood, it is not a good time to take decisions.
    Facing problems in life is a way of balancing out our karma. Please take it as an opportunity to make corrections within ourselves as opposed to finding faults with others.
    Insults, disappointments and humiliations are to be taken with a balanced mindset. Instead of reacting to the situation, it would work better if we take the key message that it conveys. However, if there is an unfair treatment meted out, it is better to deal with them firmly without any negative mindset.
    If the situation becomes insurmountable, it is better to raise our hands and offer total Sharanagati to Lord Krishna! It can be a sincere prayer, silent meditation or chanting of mantras. Any of them would certainly help. The key here is to keep cool and a positive mindset.
    Being humbler and showing humility towards everyone has its own advantages. It can certainly avoid conflicts in life.

    अमानित्वमदम्भित्वमहिंसा क्षान्तिरार्जवम् |
    आचार्योपासनं शौचं स्थैर्यमात्मविनिग्रहः

    Humility; being free from pretentiousness; non-violence; the virtue of forgiving; modesty, service of the teacher, purity, steadfastness, self-control;

    Lastly, please keep in mind Tavamithram Sir’s article on Cup of Life. You will have an entirely different perspective to your problems and the way you approach them!

    Mr Kuldeep M Pai is a phenomenal person. The fabulous musician is an amazing teacher who has been training Sooryagayathri, Rahul Vellala and many other such young talented musical prodigies.

    This song called ‘Namo Namo Bharatambe’ rendered by Kuldeep M Pai and Sooryagayathri is sure to cause goosebumps for patriotic Indians.

    Jai Bharatambe.

    I thank you all once again for the warm birthday wishes that you have sent me.

    The most amazing miracle we experience every moment of our life is, being alive. It is the most precious and supreme gift that we receive with every heartbeat of ours. The very reason that one is alive is good enough to celebrate by simply soaking into each and every moment that will never repeat.

    Nature, colours and lights certainly contribute to making people feel happy and so does good music. The beautiful musical composition called the Second Waltz of the Russian composer Dmitry Shostakovich, is one that no matter what stress levels a person might be in, listening to it actually gives wings to one’s heart and makes it fly.

    This video is of a harmonica rendition of mine of this magical composition. I hope the film that I have made with clips showing some wonders of nature, helps people feel good, light, happy and thankful for the greatest gift called life.

    May you all be healthy, happy and prosperous.

    Jai Shri Krishna

  6. Namaste,

    I would like to share a few thoughts on Tavamithram Sir’s birthday.

    The most important thing we need in life, to be happy and free of worries, is courage.
    Courage shows when we have a total conviction that our moral compass is right.

    Our moral compass is mostly right when we repeatedly make good decisions and take actions that are just, planned and with good intentions for our benefit as well as the benefit of the others on earth.

    Confidence is like a reflection of courage.

    It shows in the voice, the manner of speaking, the way we carry ourselves. We cannot expect an uncourageous person to show confidence. Because that person is highly unsure about a lot of things.

    It is possible to be confident when we are more or less certain about the outcome of the actions.
    But one cannot be confident when there are unseen forces at work and our actions are not the only players.

    In these situations, we need to dive deep and find courage.

    How do we find courage and confidence?

    Trust and faith, and Surrender to the higher power – Sharanaagathi.

    We gain confidence by performing our duties and actions with intentions of self-betterment and for the benefit of others. These are predictable aspects with some certainty in the outcome.
    We gain courage by surrendering to the higher power when there is no certainty in the outcome, and by accepting wholeheartedly that everything that happens without our control has a purpose in this lifetime of ours.

    When we have the trust that everything is going to be okay, even when we do not know the outcome, and even in spite of the outcome that we dread, we gain courage.

    It was this couple of Videos that I found on the Tavamithram page that first got me thinking.

    Trust and faith in Bhagavan krishna

    Sharanaagathi

    I heard a calm and reassuring voice behind this. The voice told me a lot of things that made sense right away.

    I lost a lot of fear I had carried with me, and with each time I heard this, I gained courage.
    This person really knew what they were talking about. There was a lot of personal conviction behind the voice and this was not a copy paste job from somewhere.

    When I finally spoke to our Tavamithram Sir a few months later, what struck me was the clarity in his thoughts, and the confidence in his voice. I read the Gita as I was instructed.

    Every time I spoke to him, his guidance made me more practical, realistic and a little more courageous. He shared his wisdom, born out of his personal experiences and challenges that he has taken on courageously.

    There is a saying that we give a lot of what we have the most.

    From him, I gained Courage for the uncertain, Confidence backed by good actions, and Clarity of thought with the wisdom he shared and by reading the Gita.

    On a lighter note, I am certain that he has rid this world of a lot of “Darpoks” like me and helped us on our feet that we didn’t know we had.

    Dear Sir, thank you for your guidance. Please accept my wishes on your birthday.

    I pray to Bhagavan Krishna for a long and healthy life for you!

    Namaste,

      I am proud of all your achievements and more so during peak Sadé Sati. You need to be extremely grateful to your parents who have brought you up so well. I am sure you remember the day over five years ago when you were feeling hopeless and I cited to you the example of our honourable PM Modiji. My sincere suggestion to all who wish to be a Karmayogi is to simply follow our most amazing leader Modiji.

      Stay blessed and do continue to spread the teachings of Bhagavan Krishna wherever you go. Remember Shloka 18:68 of the SBG Sharing with others the supreme knowledge of the Gita is a great service you can do for mankind and the best way to show your love for Krishna.

    Namaste everyone.

    Some of our friends have been writing to me about their mounting pressure due to financial problems or due to relationship issues. Many Vrischikans who are eagerly awaiting the month of January (2020) for the Sadé Sati period to end, have informed me that they have not seen any noticeable improvements in their lives. However, most of them seem to overlook the fact that they have already sailed through more than seven years of the period that they had dreaded the most.

    I wrote a new post today in which I have shared a simple philosophy of life that I have been following even in the most perilous of situations that I have been in and I hope that it helps people view life in a more positive manner.

    What a wonderful situation it is to be in when the leader of the nation is also a friend, philosopher and guide who teaches people good values?

    Modiji briefly talks about the great debate that Shri Adi Sankara had with Mandana Mishra at a time when most people had strayed extremely far away from the path of Dharma and had taken to heavily ritualistic practices.

    Please watch the video in which our honourable and beloved PM Modiji narrates the story and ends it with an important message.

  23. What a great blessing it is to have a selfless leader who is a true ‘Sthithapragnya’!

    SBG 2:54 Arjuna said:
    O Keshava! What is the description of a man who has attained unwavering, firm and steady intellect in Self-realisation? How does such a man talk? How does he sit and how does he walk?

    SBG 2:55 Shree Bhagavan Krishna said:
    One who has given up all desires of the heart has a purified mind which finds joy in itself and not in external factors is called a ‘Stithapragnya’ who is a person of steady consciousness.

    SBG 2:56 He who is not agitated or disturbed despite the threefold miseries, or is also not euphoric when he has comforts, and he is free from attachment, fear and anger, is called a sage with a steady mind.

    SBG 6:07 The one who has conquered the mind has already reached Superconsciousness. Such a person has crossed all dualities such as cold and heat; pleasure and pain; honour and dishonour; and is always balanced, peaceful and steadfast in devotion.

    Ours is the land which gave the world great knowledge and wisdom. Our ancestors were people who have been known for their advanced thinking and philosophy. Bharat Varsh has been the target of invaders and colonisers who have incessantly worked on destroying the Sanatana Dharma and the very fabric of Universal Oneness, Love and Peace, that forms the basis of this great part of the world.

    Today, thanks to the phenomenal leadership that Bharat Varsh has been blessed with, the day is not far when India will be crowned VishvaGuru or the Teacher of the World again.

  27. Namaste,

    It has been roughly 2 years since I first read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita in 2017 after I was guided by Tavamithram Sir. I have learnt a lot and I have changed so much for the better since then.
    Over this time, I have slowly begun to understand and appreciate the power of Karma- Actions over which we do have control.
    Karma seems to have taken a backseat in the Hindu way of life.
    For generations, we have been using the word Karma in a wrong light, i.e. to emphasize on a negative incident over which we have no control.
    Something bad happened to you because you did something bad and now you are doomed. Blame Karma.
    Or in the case of internet, Karma has been presented as an instant payback/revenge mechanism.
    Over all this noise, the real meaning and relevance of Karma has been lost somewhere in the background.
    If I have not understood it wrongly, Karma simply translates to “Action/duty”.
    The importance of Karma has been elaborated in detail by Bhagavan Krishna in the Gita.
    Bhagavan Krishna goes so far as to say, “Performing ones action/duty truly and faithfully is preferable to giving up performing actions and to separate from the society”.
    With that, Bhagavan Krishna puts the power and responsibility in our hands. Karma, or performing actions is the only thing that is truly under our control.
    If a person is in a bad place A, and they feel much better in a better place B, they have to make that journey. And that will require their efforts, some sacrifice and a lot of commitment and dedication.
    Having said this, whether that person reaches the better place B, or not, is not for them to decide. The world is a gigantic place and there are too many factors involved around this outcome which are not under this person’s control.
    But if they do not even begin this journey and just spend all the time praying that they reach place B, they will not have covered even a meter of distance.
    Do prayers help? Of course prayers help. They calm us down, make our minds clear, give us strength and courage to carry out the journey and they give hope that the unknown factors will be kind to us and we will be protected.
    But Prayers do not equal Action.
    There was a proverb in our school diary that went something like “God helps those who help themselves”. I never really understood the deeper meaning and the sheer practicality of it all these years.
    Bhagavan Krishna – the entire universe, past present and future personified, was right in front of Arjuna as his charioteer. But Arjuna did not get to just pray his enemies away. Arjuna had to battle it out, perform his actions and win the war under the protection and guidance of Bhagavan Krishna.
    It is important to note that Bhagavan Krishna does not mince his words, but actually tells Arjuna to perform his duty and worry about the outcome. He tells him to fight bravely and faithfully.
    If he wins, he would enjoy his kingdom, and if he dies, he would go the abode of the bravest of the brave for doing his duty and fighting the righteous war. Either ways, he had to perform his action.
    Dear Sir, I remember you telling me that it is very important to invest our time and energy in improving our skills every day. If we want a better future or if we want to be removed from a tough situation, we have to perform our actions to the best of our abilities. We may or may not get what we want. But we will have the satisfaction of having done our best, and not having any regrets for leaving room for more to be desired in our actions.
    So it is important to choose our actions wisely. Our actions should not cause any harm, pain or suffering to others and our actions should be as righteous as we can judge. And they must be performed in the best possible way.
    The focus should be on performing those actions that can improve our skillset, or that can give us a better situation or that can get people out of a bad situation.
    A simple way to approach this is to think that you are performing this action for someone whom you hold very dear to you. Be it your companion or your parents or your friends or Bhagavan Krishna himself.
    If you feel lazy or disinterested to do your duty, then imagine that you are doing it for Bhagavan Krishna. Would you still continue to do it in a pathetic way if the ruler of the universe Himself asked you?
    Karma is cause and effect. It is not purely “Do good and get good. Do bad and get bad”.
    Every action that we perform is a cause for an effect that may or may not be immediate. But rest assured, that action is recorded in the universe and the effect will be felt someday in some lifetime.
    And this is precisely why it is bad to condemn someone to their fate saying that it is their bad Karma that put them in that place. If they are deserving of any help, it is important to give them that relief. We are part of the universe too and I believe that helping someone deserving will rid them of their past karma. The universe speaks through us.
    In conclusion, we should perform our actions to the best of our abilities and then let our prayers do their thing. If we are deserving, then help will be on its way. But either ways, the situation will pass and life will go on.
    This is what I have learnt over the last 2 years after having read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita.
    Reading the Bhagavad Gita was one of the best decisions that I have made in my life and I thank dear Tavamithram Sir for his invaluable guidance that I have received.

    Namaste.

    • Hi @DhruvaAndLordVishnu,

      This post of yours is probably one of the best among the thousands that we have seen on this forum. It is heartening to see the clarity and profoundness of the understanding that you have gained on the teachings of Krishna through the SBG.

      As I have mentioned oftentimes on this site, a few major problems of many people from the Sanatana Dharmic community, are the distorted ‘God concept’ they have in their heads and their ignorance of the basic principles of the Self, Advaita, Karma, Attachments and Death, taught by our wise and great ancestors. Due to their confused and sometimes warped thinking, a lot of people waste precious time on the planet by unnecessarily complicating their lives, which could actually be much simpler and more enjoyable if only they read the SBG at least a few times regularly and tried to apply the knowledge in their own lives.

      I greatly appreciate your participation in this forum and look forward to more inspiring posts as well as spiritually and morally uplifting discussions from you and from our other old and new friends.

      Stay blessed.

    I am of the firm opinion that the Audiobook will make it easier for a lot of people to complete going through all the 18 Chapters of the SBG, particularly for those who are lazy to read the great scripture or find it boring to read it,

I realize that I am also a blessed person like her who received the opportunity to discover the beauty of Hinduism and return to the religion of forefathers.

      I have traveled a long way since the time I contacted you at the beginning of 2017. Thanks for being there for a lost soul like me and for leading me to the path of my true destiny.

      The way I usually end anything I write is with this old Americal Cherokee prayer and blessing that I was taught when I was a young girl –

      May the Warm Winds of Heaven blow softly upon your house.
      May the Great Spirit bless all who enter there.
      May your Mocassins make happy tracks in many snows,
      and May the Rainbow always touch your shoulder.

      Sending prayers, love and warm wishes to all

  30. Hi all,

    I have been regularly reading all the invaluable articles and discussions from people on this wonderful site. As a makar rashi person – capricorn I am still quite ‘young’ in sadesathi as compared to scorpios and sagis but I have already been through a lot of hardships in the past three years. One thing is for sure that had it not been for the problems I am facing in life I would have neither discovered this site nor have learnt all that I have learnt in the last ten months or so.

    Reading the Gita fully at least once a month and watching some videos on this channel are helping me tremendously. I can well imagine how the new Gita audiobook will be with the Master’s fatherly and reassuring voice. I eagerly look forward towards its release and to be one of its first receivers or buyers.

    Sincere thanks to the master and all others,

  31. The importance of always being alert and in tune with nature.

    Namaste.

    One afternoon in July 2014, an old wealthy friend of mine from India, who is also much older than me, called me and told that his daughter’s wedding which was due to be held two weeks from then, had been called off as the families had some major disagreements over important matters.

    I have known my friend for over 25 years and his daughter from the time she was a little student of grade three or four. She had grown up to be a very pretty and well educated young woman.

    The cancellation of the wedding shattered my friend and he was in tears. He asked me if I knew a suitor for his daughter and if I thought it would be possible for him to conduct the marriage on the same date they had originally decided upon so that everything could go as planned except that the bridegroom would be a different person. I assured him that I would call him again a couple of hours later and we ended the call,

    It occurred to me that a former student of mine was still single and that he was looking for a bride for himself. I took the liberty and even without speaking with him, I called my friend again that evening. I briefly described my former student to him and assured him of the young man’s good character. My friend who always trusts my word said to me that if the young man and his family would be interested, he would like to meet them.

    I called my former student but could not reach him at all. I tried for two days but the phone was switched off. I had to inform my friend in India that I could not reach the young man I had suggested. A week later, my friend called me back and jubilantly informed me that they had found a groom and that the wedding would take place on the same day they had planned. Due to my travel schedules in Europe, I could not attend the wedding that took place in India but I sent them all my love and best wishes.

    It has now been five years since that day. My friend’s daughter and her husband are a wonderful couple and they now have a sweet three-year-old daughter.

    The fact remains that had my former student been reachable that day, he would have been the lucky one to get such a lovely and intelligent wife, she would have been fortunate to be married to a fine man and I would have been pleased that both of them whom I have seen grow, married each other and are happy.

    It is easy to accuse destiny, but keeping the phone switched off because one is feeling down is not an act of destiny but it is an unintelligent act and that was exactly what my student had done.

    The story has a happy ending because all those involved in the story are doing well and will surely live happily ever after.

    I have shared this story here in order to let people know that particularly during times when they are looking for help, new ideas, new contacts or anything that can have the probability of improving their situation, they need to be extra alert, watchful and prepared to receive answers to their prayers. One can and will never know where help comes from and in which form.

    May you all stay blessed.

    Jai Shri Krishna

    This lovely lady reminds me of a couple of Shlokas from the 6th chapter of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita:

    SBG 6:43 There, his previous divine consciousness is revived and he comes in contact with the knowledge acquired in his former body. He then works even harder in order to achieve perfection, O Arjuna.

    SBG 6:44 With the divine consciousness from the previous birth, a person gets attracted to Yogic principles as they will come to him even if he does not go behind them. Such a person strives for yoga and is steadfast in Yogic principles.

    Here is the greatest and most powerful Indian Vrischikan of our time. He is a man who displays the true nature of Vrischikans!

    Dear Vrischikans, now come on and be thankful to yourselves for your past Karma for being born under the Vrischika Rashi which, Karmically speaking, is the most advanced among all the 12 Rashis (moon signs) and be proud of such a birth! Remember, the respectable Shankaracharya, Shri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati Swamigal was also born under the Vrischika Rashi just like many other great sages.

    I am feeling blessed, honoured and special to have Modiji as our leader and I am extremely grateful to my destiny for permitting me to be a contemporary of such a great soul on a mega Karmic mission.
    🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

    Treat Insults and Setbacks as ‘ROCKET FUEL’

    https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/2019/07/26/treat-insults-and-setbacks-as-rocket-fuel/

    WARNING: Sorry for being blunt but this post is not ideal or suitable for people who are currently facing challenges but believe in any one, a few or in all of the following:
    1. God is testing me
    2. Saturn is ‘torturing’ me
    3. I have wait until my Saturn period is over and then things will be fine
    4. I am being ‘punished’ by God for my past deeds
    5. Someone has done black magic against me
    6. I need to look for a baba or swamy who can perform a ‘Parihara’ or remedial puja for me that will wipe out all my negative past Karma
    7. I need to find the right precious stone or talisman that will end my woes
    8. The Srimad Bhagavad Gita is an ancient scripture which takes very long to read and impossible to understand without a Guru.
    9. I don’t share my positive energy with others but just like a typical imbecile, I love reading and writing sad stories on blogs, cursing Saturn and other planets, visiting astrology websites and reading daily as well as monthly predictions.
    10. I believe that the current low period of my life has completely destroyed me and I can never stand up again.

    But those who have read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and have understood that success can be attained through mastering one’s own mind, may read the post and derive some energy out of it.

    Bhagavan Krishna said: (SBG 18:57) Using the Yoga of your intellect, dedicate all your actions to Me, have Me as your highest goal, devote yourself intensely to Me and you will always be under My protection. Be fully conscious of Me all the time.

    Life is the greatest gift.
    Live it. Relish it. Be grateful for it. Celebrate every moment of it.

    Jai shri Krishna !
    While passing through tough phase life like sade sati etc we do consult Astrologers for guidance . As you have mentioned in various blogs I have noted the limited dependence we should have on this suggestions and believe in Karma philosophy . Some times it is indicated that the current phase is also due to pitrudosha … Kindly guide on the same how to tackle this . It is also advised to do puja like Kalsarpa etc…

    • Namaste Kishor.

      Thank you for participating in the forum. Before I begin to respond to your request to me to share what I know and feel about Pitru Dosha or the negative effects in a person’s life due to the sins committed by their ancestors, I would like you to go through this post once again and then get back to this response of mine.
      https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/discussion/comment-page-22/#comment-7695

      Being another modest seeker like you and many others, I never claim to be a master of anything but what I do on this site is to merely share with others my thoughts based on my logical and rational way of thinking and questioning which are always guided by common sense, logic, reason, rationality and justice.

      In my post dated July 10 2019, https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/discussion/comment-page-22/#comment-7594
      I had given the analogy of the popular party game known as ‘Chinese Whispers. It was to point out the fact that ideas and concepts change their shapes and even their definitions over periods of time. The same could have happened to the concept of ‘Pitru Dosha’ too. Some simple practice of our ancestors could have taken a completely different form over the last centuries and have become a great money-spinning idea for astrologers, babas, swamies and also necromancers.

      Dhritarashtra had 100 sons and a daughter. Why did they all die in the war? As the story goes, in one of his previous lifetimes, Dhritarashtra had killed a swan that had a hundred cygnets. Fifty Janmas later, he was born as Dhritarashtra and had a hundred sons who were finally killed in the war. If we applied the Law of Cause and Effect here and thought logically, we will be able to understand that just as Dritarashtra had Karma to balance, all his hundred sons too must have had their own respective Karma to balance and that is why they were born as Dhritarashtra’s sons.

      Each one carries his or her own Karma (SBG 15:08) which is recorded in the form of their Gunas and the disposition of their mind. There seems to be no other concept more convincing than this. Pitru Dosha might be true but then it must also be entwined with a person’s own Karma just as the Karma of the hundred sons of Dhritarashtra was.

      The best way would be to follow the teachings of Krishna, take to Yoga which is described in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and avoid wasting precious time on worrying about things that lead people away from the true spiritual path.

      You might also want to take a look at the following Shloka from the SBG which has a reference to what happens to departed souls between death and their Punarjanma or rebirth:
      SBG 2:28 O Bharata (Arjuna), nothing is known before birth and after death. The only period known is between birth and death. Therefore of what use is lamentation.

      One last thing. Difficulties and challenges are not punishments but they are amazing learning experiences. So finding reasons or trying to identify those who might have caused the Karma is a sheer waste of time. Instead, it would be better to truly experience every moment of life, learn, grow, evolve and move forward towards the Supreme Goal.

        I had put this post for benefit of me as well as others.. I fully agree to your comment that over years there could have been distortion to this rituals ..AFter going through so much of tumultuous period and having tried so many things astrology , totkas etc before coming to this site I can confirm that there is no sure way which can confirm by doing this the problems are resolved . There is no way , no way , no way than to face and go through our past Karmas , come what may be ..Even prayers dont yield any instant results .. The earlier we understand and accept this better… This acceptance is surrendering but it is easier said than done and need constant hammering to bring mind , thoughts to this fact. The only way is to keep reading BG and remain in association with good souls and Guru like you whenever the mind flickers.

        • Hello Kishor.

          Almost everything you wrote agrees with the teachings of Krishna but there is one sentence that carries some sort of a pessimistic tone in it. It is the sentence “Even prayers don’t yield any instant results”.

          The term ‘prayer’ can be defined as an earnest and humble request for help usually from a higher authority or God. Please remember that Arjuna, in Shloka 2:07, requested Krishna for help but that was his request to Krishna to tell him what was good for him. Arjuna did not ask Krishna to remove his problem but he only asked Krishna to remove his doubts and teach him the right way. I had written in an earlier post titled “Spiritual Corruption, Corruption in Spirituality and Trade-Offs with Gods” https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/2019/02/02/corruption-in-spirituality/ about a tendency of many people to look for ways out of problems without actually solving them forever. Arjuna, who could be our role model, did not do such an unintellectual thing.

          On one hand what you say is absolutely true that there is no way out from past Karma except for going through challenging situations, learning from them and evolving, but on the other, the most powerful Shloka 18:66 of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita says that by surrendering before Krishna, a person will be liberated of all his or her past Karma.

          What I do when I face serious challenging situations, are as follows:
          1. I begin by expressing my gratitude for my being selected for the tough job and for being given the CHANCE TO CLEAR MY PAST KARMA!
          2. I commune with Krishna and request Him to show me the right way. It could be through something as innocuous as a popup that appears on my screen while I surf the internet, a hoarding in the city that my glance accidentally falls upon, a message from someone or through any other means.
          3. If it takes longer than I thought, I begin to think where I went wrong in learning new lessons, which of the Five Pearls I did not follow or which Dharmic and Karmic principle I disregarded.
          4. I break all attachment to the object that I fear will go away from me, prepare myself mentally for the worst, but I keep marching ahead with total self-confidence.

          Please note the difference between “being prepared for the worst’ and ‘losing hope’. Some may argue that technically speaking, they both mean the same but deep within the mind of a strong Yogi who has renounced all his actions to Krishna, he knows that he is a fearless and invincible force that can never be defeated or destroyed.

          Keep moving ahead. Just as everything has an end; troubles, pains and miseries too have an end.

          Stay blessed.

    Sharing a wonderful article may be repeat ..

    A person started to walk on a rope tied between two tall towers at several hundred feet above the ground. He is slowly walking balancing a long stick in his hands. He has his son sitting on his shoulders.

    Everyone down were watching him in bated breath and were tensed. He slowly reached the second tower. Everyone clapped, whistled and welcomed him. They shook hands and took selfies.

    He asked the crowd „do you all think I can walk back on the same rope now from this side to that side?“ Crowd shouted „Yes, Yes, you can.“ Do you trust me he asked. They said yes, yes we are ready to bet on you.

    He said okay, can any one of you sit on my shoulder; I will take you to the other side safely.

    Everyone became quite. There was stunned silence.

    Belief is different. Trust is different. For Trust you need total surrender.

    This is what we are lacking towards God in today’s world.

    We believe in God. But we don’t trust Him!!

    The natural law of Cause and Effect or Karma is, in fact, the same as Newton’s third law which says, “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” However, it is strange that when people consider it as a natural law in science, they accept it but when it comes to Karma, they don’t find it all that convincing.

    As I wrote in a previous post, the reason behind the ups and downs in life or all the large disparities between people could be either plain coincidence, a ‘cruel ‘god’ like the one of some foreign cults or, THE LAW OF CAUSE AND EFFECT aka KARMA.

    People collect Karma with every single thought, word and deed. Karma is not recorded in some ‘heavenly server’ but it is stored as the Gunas of people and in their mind which their Atman carries along from Janma to Janma (SBG 15:08).

    Among the first steps that one can take towards attaining the highest goal in one’s life as well as working on one’s spiritual development leading to their positive Karmic evolution, is what one can do with their food. Just as buying stolen goods is a crime as per law, being a part of the chain of the daily mass murder of animals, in the form of consuming meat or any other animal product such as dairy, however indirect the part may be, creates negative Karma. It has also been proven that both meat, as well as dairy, are harmful to health and that it was the food and pharma industries that, that through their clout in governments and also in the media, have been subliminally brainwashing people into believing that they need animal products in order to stay healthy.

    As I mentioned in a previous post, I am currently working (between 1 and 3 AM every day) on the Audiobook – The Srimad Bhagavad Gita in English which I plan to complete before the 1st of August 2019.

    While I checked emails in between recordings, I noticed that the concerns that some people wrote to me about were quite identical in nature. Now that many people are beginning to see the law of cause and effect or Karma as the only plausible reason for all the ups and downs in their lives apart from the huge inequalities and disparities among people, they have started to focus more on balancing their Karma. This is what I have been saying ever since I started this site!

    Considering the common belief that it is better to be late than never, there is nothing to fear. I would like to say that even a small amount of good Karma will not be wiped out. The following Shlokas from the 6th Chapter of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita might help clear certain doubts that some people may have just as Arjuna too did.

    Please go through the following patiently and absorb the teachings well.

    Jai Shri Krishna

    6:29 A yogi whose Self is united with Divine Consciousness, sees the Self abiding in all beings and all beings in the Self. Such a person sees the same everywhere.

    6:30 A person who sees Me everywhere and sees everything in Me, does not become separated from Me nor am I separated from him.

    6:31 The one who is in union with Me and worships Me residing in all beings, becomes a Yogi and, whatever circumstances the person may be in, resides in Me.

    6:32 He who sees the equality in all beings and responds to their joys and sorrows as if they were his own, is regarded by Me as a perfect Yogi.

    6:33 Arjuna said:
    This Yoga of equanimity taught by You, O Krishna, I do not see its steady continuance, because of restlessness of the mind.

    6:34 The mind is certainly restless, turbulent, strong and unyielding, O Krishna! I think it is extremely difficult to control it just as the wind is.

    6:35 The Blessed Lord said:
    Undoubtedly, O mighty-armed Arjuna, the mind is difficult to control and restless, but it can be restrained through practice and dispassion.

    6:36 Yoga is difficult to attain for a person whose mind is not controlled. But it is possible for one who has his mind under control and works through prescribed means.

    6:37 Arjuna said:
    He who is unable to control himself although he has the faith, and whose mind wanders away from Yoga, what end does he meet, having failed to attain perfection in Yoga, O Krishna?

    6:38 Fallen from Yoga and Meditation, does he not perish like a detached cloud without any support, being deluded on the path of the Ultimate Truth, O Krishna?

    6:39 Please remove this doubt of mine completely, O Krishna, There is no one else who can remove it but You.

    6:40 Bhagavan Krishna said:
    O Arjuna, neither in this world nor in the next world is there destruction for him; because the one who does good, O My dear friend, never comes to evil.

    6:41 After having attained the worlds of the righteous and after having dwelt there for many years, he who fell from Yoga, is reborn in the house of the pure and the prosperous.

    6:42 Or he is born in a family of even wise Yogis which is a kind of birth that is very difficult to obtain in this world.

    6:43 There, his previous divine consciousness is revived and he comes in contact with the knowledge acquired in his former body. He then works even harder in order to achieve perfection, O Arjuna.

    6:44 With the divine consciousness from the previous birth, a person gets attracted to Yogic principles as they will come to him even if he does not go behind them. Such a person strives for yoga and is steadfast in Yogic principles.
    Note:
    A person who has fallen from Yoga or the path of Self Realisation is taken with the help of Yoga, towards his goal which he left incomplete in his previous birth. However, some past negative Karma may hold the person back from fully adopting Yogic principles.

    6:45 But, the Yogi who strives sincerely, is purified of all sins and he is gradually perfected through many births and finally, he reaches the Supreme goal.

    6:46 The Yogi is thought to be superior to the ascetics and even superior to men who have obtained knowledge by studying scriptures. He is also superior to men who are devoted to work. Therefore, be a Yogi, O Arjuna!

    6:47 Among all Yogis, he who engages himself sincerely with devotion and total faith in Me, will be purified of all sins and he will attain the Supreme goal.

  39. Here is another timeless song from Doris Day. The song is, in fact, a simple Mantra for eternal happiness.

    “Que sera sera – What will be, will be” so there is absolutely no point in wasting the extremely precious and certain NOW for anything that is less certain than it.

    Always remember, “Whatever will be, will be.”

    When I was just a little girl
    I asked my mother, what will I be
    Will I be pretty, will I be rich
    Here’s what she said to me.

    Que Sera, Sera,
    Whatever will be, will be
    The future’s not ours, to see
    Que Sera, Sera
    What will be, will be.

    When I was young, I fell in love
    I asked my sweetheart what lies ahead
    Will we have rainbows, day after day
    Here’s what my sweetheart said.

    Que Sera, Sera,
    Whatever will be, will be
    The future’s not ours, to see
    Que Sera, Sera
    What will be, will be.

    Now I have children of my own
    They ask their mother, what will I be
    Will I be handsome, will I be rich
    I tell them tenderly.

    Que Sera, Sera,
    Whatever will be, will be
    The future’s not ours, to see
    Que Sera, Sera
    What will be, will be.

  40. Doris Day, who was one of the most beautiful, elegant, talented and finest women, left us on the 13th of May, 2019 at the ripe age of 97. Apart from being an actor and singer, she was an animal welfare activist and ran an animal welfare foundation.

    With her passing, she has certainly taken away major parts of my childhood, my teenage years, years of my youth and in short, a major part of my whole life.

    May her music live on and may she continue to inspire young women and also young men, who aspire to grow up to be fine successful people.

    One of Doris Day’s famous songs “The way we were” is a beautiful, soft, gentle and soothing one. It can help calm agitated minds and can also have a pacifying and tranquilising effect on the heart and mind of people who think of their loved one that they are separated from.

    Spread unconditional love around you and relish life even better.

    Some people (mainly Vrischikans) have written to me saying that their situation has not changed and that there has been no respite from the effects of Sadé Sati.

    I would like to begin my response to them with a famous quote from Albert Einstein – “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

    Ever since I started this website, I have been saying again, again, again, again, again, again, again and again, that the Sadé Sati period is a normal and regular part of the different patterns that occur in people’s lives. It so happens that over a period of time, people stray very far away from the truth, bask in ego, become selfish, stop having respect for others and become victims of the ‘I’ disease. That is when they need something like the Sadé Sati period in order to help them fix their feet on the ground; learn to be more modest and socially responsible; and also realise that they, as persons, are not some superhuman beings but merely minuscule and dispensable parts of the whole. I also always ensure to make it a point to express my opinion that simply waiting for the dreaded period to get over without making necessary course corrections will not help at all and that there will be no positive change in life unless one made changes in themselves. Take another look at Einstein’s quote given above.

    How many of our visitors have actually used this site to think aloud; share positive ideas and experiences; discuss steps for self-improvement; or other such positive things? One pattern that I have noticed among many people is that they come here when their house is on fire and the moment things start getting better or less bad, they simply fade away into the crowd without finding it necessary to share their energy with others and play their part, however small, in helping others. Such people might want to read through the Five Pearls again of which the fifth one is that of Social Sesponsibilityand helping others. Never forget your downtimes because they are loaded with information through learning experiences and teach you great laws that you would need to respect in order to prevent the repetition of such trying times.

    This site will soon move to http://www.tavamithram.com and will have a completely different design with new features.

    I wish everyone Divine Blessings and Vrischikans, a smooth transition from troubled times into a new, rewarding and pleasurable part of their life post-Sadé Sati.

      Even this morning I was thinking about my good fortune which has made me contact you so that I could take your spiritual guidance. I might not be regular in participating in discussions but everyday I read your articles and what other people write. Many times I requested you to clear my doubts and you have always so kindly helped me.

      Since the day I started to cultivate the habit of saying that I don’t care whatever happens like you told me I am not being bothered about any problem. I don’t want to blow my own trumpet but I regularly go to the place which you told me to go and offer my help to the elderly people. I feel very nice to receive blessings from them. I didn’t know all these things so my life was confused but now after stopping to be angry about my fate I am feeling very much at peace.

      I am excited about the new website!

      Thanks a lot for your blessings for us.

However, it is primarily due to lengthy and detailed interpretations of each Shloka by great learned people, that make copies of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita so fat, big, uninteresting, unattractive and uninviting to newbies. The sheer size of the copies gives the impression to people that it would take them a long time to read it and that they would do it when they are much older or even after they have retired! Not reading the Srimad Bhagavad Gita despite being blessed with the possibility of reading it, is something that most people regret once they do take the time and complete reading it.

    In order to motivate first timers to complete reading the Divine Scripture at least once, I have given below a table showing how much time one approximately needs to quickly read merely the translations of each chapter.

    A quick read of the 700 Shlokas takes about 146 minutes in all which will be one of the greatest investments of time in your life.

    First-timers could read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita with the sole objective of simply acquiring the feeling of having completed it once. It will not matter if one does not understand many Shlokas. The goal needs to be to complete reading it. People who have read it once, are drawn to it again and again after which, they start relating different Shlokas to situations in their life and to apply what they have learned. The Srimad Bhagavad Gita which I also call the ultimate ‘Mind management Manual’ ever is a scripture which can inspire people with tremendous amounts of energy, mental power, confidence and ínnumerous ideas every time they read it.

    Every great journey begins with the first step. One of the prime aims of TVM Gita Samiti is to encourage and prompt people to read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. The difference that it will make in their life and in their attitude towards life, cannot be described in words – one needs to experience it.

    I am currently producing a recording of the entire Srimad Bhagavad Gita in English and shall announce its availability once it is ready.

    Take a firm decision to take total control of your mind by mastering it and go to our Srimad Bhagavad Gita Site to receive Divine Knowledge.

    I pray to the Supreme Bhagavan for the well-being of everyone.
    May all stay abundantly blessed.

    Jai Shri Krishna

  46. An excerpt from someone’s communication with me on our Youtube channel.

    Namaste.

    Please find below a part of the communication that one of our friends on Youtube recently had with me.

    (Also read this post again https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/2019/02/02/corruption-in-spirituality/ )

    Jai Shri Krishna

    Below is the video that the person commented on:

    @Tavamithram Sarvada This is a request. Can you please make a video on interpolations in the Bhagavat Puran? Certain stories like Krshn watching girls bathing, Him stealing clothes, having multiple wives and thousands of concubines, etc are not found in the Mahabharat, Harivamsa Puran or Garg Samhita yet are heavily circulated. Unfortunately the ISKCON website also propagates these stories as a result of blind faith. Not that these shake my belief in Krshn but I do feel the need to stand up for the truth. Lord is Achyuta, is affected by none. But that doesn’t mean we’ll let troglodyte muslims and xtians malign His character.
    Thanks

    My reply (elaborate as always)
    Yes, I plan to make new videos explaining clearly the ‘God’ concept as per Advaita Vedanta. Despite being the most advanced, logical, scientific and ONLY rational philosophy in the world; but thanks to the twisting, contortion and even mutilation that has been done to our philosophy by people with vested interests; the common Sanatana Dharmi has unknowingly strayed very far away from the path taught by Bhagavan Shri Jagad Guru Krishna.

    Most of Sanatana Dharmis have never read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita which takes hardly 3-4 hours to read. I created a website http://bit.ly/tvmgita in December 2014 through which thousands of people could easily read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. I do not have detailed, lengthy and boring commentaries on the Shlokas but merely my simple translations of the Shlokas in English. This makes it very easy for (lazy) people to take up the project of reading the SBG and completing it!

    The 6th Chapter of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita teaches seekers ways to develop concentration and focus in order to learn the skill of meditation, and the 12th Chapter throws more light on how to perceive or visualise Krishna. Shloka 12:05 trashes the allegation made by people that Sanatanis are idol worshippers. In fact, actual idol worshippers are mentioned in the 32nd chapter of the book of Exodus in the Old Testament when people made a calf of gold and called it god. No Dharmic person ever goes to a temple, stands before the presiding deity and says, “O idol or O image, I pray to you!” because the devotee knows that the Vigraha or Image REPRESENTS the deity, that he or she is praying to, which is an anthropomorphisation of one the various energies or manifestations of the Supreme FORMLESS and Omnipresent Brahman. So this rubbishes the allegations made by the moronic preacher of a desert cult, whose video you have posted below, and proves that the Advaita Vedanta is neither polytheistic nor monotheistic!

    It is rather unfortunate that based on the “father in heaven’ concept taught by Abrahamics in schools run by them, common Sanatanis have been trained to perceive god or in this case Krishna, as some kind of a spirit who is outside of them, pray to Him to solve problems or win over enemies, make a lot of money or even to get married to the person of one’s choice, completely overlooking the Karma factor in everyone’s life. Offering huge amounts of money as parts of deals with Krishna in temples such as Tirupati etc. are proof for such irrational practices.
    Shloka 2:07 of the SBG shows that Arjuna OPENED HIS MIND TO RECEIVE TRUE KNOWLEDGE BY COMPLETELY SHEDDING HIS PRIDE AND EGO, surrendering before Krishna and asking Him TO TAKE HIM AS HIS PUPIL but not to make him win the war in return for an offering of money or of his hair, as they do in Tirupati and in other temples, that he would later on make! –
    SBG 2:07 (Arjuna said) “With my mind in a state of confusion regarding my duty and the feeling of helplessness because of weakness, I ask You to tell me what is good for me. I am Your disciple and I have surrendered my soul to You. Please teach me.”

    I would like to invite you to our discussion forum so that you could post your thoughts there. We have many seekers who are beginning to learn Advaita Vedanta and have started to regard the Sanatana Dharma as the only rational way of material as well as spiritual life.

    I am sure that you will be able to add more valued and colour to our Discussion forum.

  47. WHO IS KRISHNA? WHERE IS KRISHNA?

    UNDERSTAND THE GOD CONCEPT AS PER ADVAITA VEDANTA, ATTAIN FEARLESSNESS AND BECOME UTTERLY SELF-CONFIDENT.

    NEW POST:

    Achieving Serenity of the Mind and Experiencing Divinity

    https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/2019/07/10/discussion/achieving-serenity-of-the-mind-and-experiencing-divinity

    Namaste.

    On the 30th of July 2014, I had published a post called Fearlessness – achieving it by understanding the God Concept https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/2014/07/30/fearlessness/

    Being one of the lucky few who had the possibility as well as the desire to learn at a very young age, Advaita Vedanta taught by Krishna, I have always felt truly sorry for all the confused souls who waste their time performing unwanted rituals such as taking up gruelling penances and torturing themselves in the name of pleasing god or gods; feeling bitter and let down by gods and planets when things don’t happen the way they want to; or believing during their trying periods in life that god is ‘testing’ them.

    Most Dharmic traditions started by our great, highly knowledgeable and wise ancestors were founded on the practice of anthropomorphisation or personification of different natural forces and also of the entire system. They thought the practice of personification was necessary up to a certain stage of spiritual development so that a true seeker could take it from there, continue their search and finally realise that all beings and everything are minuscule parts of the eternal and Supreme System, Brahman or Krishna.

    SBG 12:05 Those whose minds are set on an unmanifested and impersonal Absolute Power face difficulties in reaching the goal. This is because people always identify with the body and when there is no perceptible form, it is difficult to perceive.
    SBG 13:02 (Krishna said) You should know that the Kshetrajna or the embodied Self in all bodies or Kshetras is ME, O Arjuna. Knowing about the Kshetra and the Kshetrajnas is called knowledge.

    Unfortunately, as it is with the popular game called ‘Chinese whispers’, what our ancestors taught took different concepts and shapes, leading to large divisions in the Dharmic society and of Bharat Varsh, and created thousands of sects and subsects with each one claiming that their god and philosophy was the best. That is what happened to organised cults and religions too that colonial powers, as well as brutal marauders, brought to India.

    Despite being the ONLY LOGICAL, SENSIBLE AND RATIONAL PHILOSOPHY in the world, the Sanatana Dharma and its followers have earned the reputation of being regressive! Whereas, cults that teach that some being called god created the earth and all its flora and fauna in six days and took rest on the seventh day, are considered to be progressive and cool! The main blame for such a situation may be hurled against religious babas and gurus as well as followers of the Sanatana Dharma who have been either illiterate or plain lazy to read ancient Dharmic scriptures. Take the story of creation – Abrahamic religions say that god created it but the way Rig Veda talks about it strongly resembles the Big Bang Theory and they call the Sanatana Dharma old fashioned and uncool!

    Through my sites, I have been sincerely trying to inform people at least about the basics of the nondualistic Dharmic Philosophy with the aim of contributing in a small way towards uplifting people, spiritually and emotionally. However, due to their low levels of spiritual evolution and also due to their laziness to pick up the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and spend three to four hours to read it, most people had rather waste their time visiting astrology sites and blogs, or consulting people such as swamies or astrologers who charge them heavily. The fact is that everybody including me is a Jivaatma that is trapped in the cycle of birth and death until the final release which can come only through Self realisation for which course corrections need to be done.

    This new post might also come across a bit atheistic to some people because as a matter of fact, it is! The term ‘theism’ is defined as ‘the belief in the existence of a god or gods, specifically of a creator who intervenes in the universe.’ This is certainly not the case as far as the Advaita Vedanta is concerned. As per Advaita Vedanta, there is nothing like creation, the first man and woman, satan, hell, heaven etc. You may want to take a look at the Nasadiya Sukta https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/2018/12/31/nasadiya-sukta-the-hymn-of-creation/

    It is indeed sad to see well-educated people, born and raised in families following the Sanatana Dharma which is the highest and the most advanced of all ways of life, falling for hocus-pocus nonsense peddled by bearded mountebanks and charlatans who pose as religious teachers.

    Wake up Dharmic people and please educate yourselves about the Advaita Vedanta and our great Sanatana Dharma. Be proud of the fact that our ancestors did not convert to bizarre foreign cults either due to greed or because of fear. Being a true and modest seeker is the prime quality to be possessed in order to be a Sanatana Dharmi (Hindu) and be called one.

  48. Dhanvantari Mantra

    Namaste,

    Over two years ago our friend Mr Sundar’s mother was admitted to a hospital and was to undergo surgery. As Mr Sundar was quite worried, I quickly chanted the Dhanvantari Mantra, made a video of it and sent him. The regular chanting of the Mantra creates the necessary vibrations to ensure a ring of protection around a family or a group of people that chant it. After his mother was discharged from the hospital, I published the video on our Tavamithram Youtube channel and I noticed that the number of views was increasing quite rapidly.

    Many of the thousands of people who watched the video and have used the video for their daily meditation for their loved ones afflicted by serious diseases have also contacted me personally. One of them wrote to me yesterday saying that she is afflicted by a life-threatening disease and that she has been undergoing treatment at a hospital in Madras. On asking her how she came to know about this website and me, she said that she watched the Dhanvantari Mantra video on the website of an Ayurveda speciality hospital in Madras. I was pleasantly surprised and also humbled to know that the simple video that I made in such a hurry is on the website of a hospital and that it brings solace, hope, strength and confidence for many people.

    Thanks to Mr Sundar who has played an indirect role in the making of this video.

    Jai Shri Krishna

    The hospital is called Dhanwanthralaya Ayurveda Speciality Hospital and the video can be found on the front page of their website: http://www.dhanwanthralaya.com

    • Dear Sir,

      Yes Sir, I vividly remember it! At the age of 80, my mother had to undergo a critical and emergency surgery on her neck to remove a tumour on one of the parathyroid gland. I had a discussion with the surgeon, chief anaesthesialogist and other specialists then. The entire team of doctors were of the opinion that the operation was highly riskier and that the survival factor was less than 10%. But the operation had to be performed on an emergency basis because it caused a whole lot of health issues for my mother. When I was in such a trying situation, I spoke with Tavamithram Sir and he recommended this manthra. I chanted this manthra along with another mantra recommended by Tavamithram Sir which I give below:

      Asmin parathman nanu paathmakalpe
      Thvamithamutthapitha padmayonihi I

      Anantha bhooma mama roga raashim,
      Nirundhi vaathalaya vaasa vishno. II

      I continuously chanted them during the time of operation and during convalescence period. Doctor came out of the operating theatre and told me that my mother’s operation went off well. Subsequently my mother was discharged from the hospital upon complete recovery. By the grace of Lord Krishna, my mother is doing well.

      I recommend those who have health problems to chant these slokas continuously. Please have complete faith on Lord Krishna and surrender yourself. You will certainly have success!

      Thank you Sir,

      Jai Shri Krishna!

    I am a scorpio moon sign man suffering for the last 8 years in the worst possible way. Last week I came to know about this site from another blog. Then I read about sadesathi explanation by you. Up till now I was thinking of the losses I made in my business enterprises but after seeing my problems from a different angle I am agreeing with you that sadesathi is good for me. You will think why I am saying this. Upto 2013 I had bad habits like drinking and smoking. Then after big loss I had money problems so I could not afford my good quality drinks and imported cigarettes.So little by little I reduced and now for the last three years I have got no bad habits only. My family used to worry so much at that time because of my habits but now even though we are not well of like before my health is good. I am following what is given in sadesathi what next. I thank you for giving good advice to people. I will stop wasting my money. There is still so much to read in this site so I will take time and understand.

    • Hello Kedar,

      अहंकार – Ahankar, arrogance, vanity or egoism, arise due to one’s ignorance about their divinity thanks to their disconnect with nature that they are a minuscule part of. It is a result of faulty thinking that one is separate from the rest and it originates from the ‘I’ness of the conscious mind clouded with selfishness and also due to one’s lack of self-respect, self-confidence and kindness.
      SBG 3:27 All actions are done by the three Gunas or the qualities of nature. But he whose mind is deluded by false ego and arrogance, thinks “I am the doer”.

      On the other hand, आत्मसम्मान – Atmasammaan or self-respect is respecting the Divinity that exists within them just as it exists equally everywhere. People who respect themselves respect everyone else too. For them, it is the wonder and beauty of nature apart from the values in themselves as well as in others that matter rather than a person’s wealth, power, position, education or good looks. A self-respecting person is neither envious of others just because those others are better than them at things, but people with self-respect know that although everyone has different capabilities, every being is Divine.
      SBG 13:27 The person who truly sees is the one who sees the Supreme Soul or the Supreme Bhagavan, existing equally in all beings, the unperishing within the perishing.
      SBG 13:28 Such a person perceives the same Supreme Bhagavan dwelling equally everywhere and he does not degrade his own spiritual well-being by mistaking his ego to be the Self like the way ignorant people do. He, therefore, reaches the highest goal.

      Please go to Ishavasya Upanishad https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/ishavasya-upanishad/ and read the ‘bucket analogy’ that I have given there. Read the verses of the Upanishad to understand that we are all part of the one whole with no separation between the Supreme Being and the rest of nature. Once you read the ‘bucket’ analogy, it will be clear to you that अहंकार – Ahankaar, the feeling of superiority, of inferiority and of entitlement are totally absurd. It would be like the water in an expensive golden bucket ‘feeling’ greater than the water in a cheap plastic bucket overlooking the fact that water is water, whether it exists in a bucket, in a small lake or in the mighty ocean.

      In that sense, we are all like ‘buckets of water’ with our impermanent and perishable bodies being the ‘buckets’ and the ‘water’ or the Jivatmas that we are, being nothing but the eternal, omnipresent and absolute Divine for which we have every reason and also every right to have आत्मसम्मान – Atmasammaan or self-respect.

I very well understand how it feels when somebody close to us dies but that is the reality of life.

      I greatly appreciate those who have sent me messages of condolence for the demise of my oldest and closest friend. He was a few years older to me and was my first ‘older’ friend while I was still in school. A daring go-getter that he was, he sensed the adventure spirit in me and took me out on thrilling journeys. I started to ride motorcycles quite young and would join him and his batchmates on exciting rides.

      Since I had already learned to perform many stunts on a bicycle, it was not difficult for me to learn motorcycle stunts which I would perform on public streets in the city we lived. This made me popular among my friends and others in my city. People would line up at the beach in the evenings to see me perform stunts on the beach road. The kind of fun we had can hardly be described. We travelled by motorcycles to different cities, met with accidents on the way, helped others who were victims of accidents and did many wonderful and also crazy things together.

      The list of things we did can go on but what I wish to say here is an important truth about life and death.
      FOR THE ONE WHO DID NOT SING, DANCE AND RELISH LIFE, DEATH IS TERRIBLE. BUT FOR THE ONE WHO DID ALL THAT AND LIVED LIFE TO THE FULLEST, DEATH IS THE ‘MOST HIGH’ MOMENT AND EVENT.

      Osho said, “Death is the crescendo, the highest peak that life can attain. In the moment of death, much is possible. If you have been preparing and preparing, meditating and waiting, then at the moment of death enlightenment is very easily possible – because death and enlightenment are similar….”

      Therefore, please do not waste your precious time on the planet whining, complaining, quarrelling, not celebrating life and also digging into astrological sites! Do all the things that make you happy and spread your happiness in your circles.

      Life is happening NOW. It is LIVING LIFE with all its mysteries that truly matter. Once the inevitable highest moment arrives, the body either goes into a hole in the ground or is burned on a hot funeral pyre but the INDESTRUCTIBLE DIVINE SELF LIVES ON.

      SBG 2:30 The soul which is inside everybody can never be destroyed O Arjuna. Therefore you have no reason to grieve for any being.

      Om Shanti.

    On the 11th of June 2019, I lost one of my oldest and closest friends. It was during the start of my teenage years that he and I became friends. He had a great influence on my life. The adventurous years we had together can make anyone turn green with envy. The striking commonality between him and me has been that both of us have always RESPECTED, VALUED, CHERISHED and CELEBRATED every single moment of our respective lives. He was certainly not an old man when he passed away but the sad truth is that death is the only certainty about life. Whenever one’s time arrives, he or she has to drop everything and leave.

    This wonderful song by Doris Day who also sang ‘Que sera’ is a quick reminder for people who somehow end up taking things for granted as if they were going to live forever, are too choosy about things in life, long for what they do not have instead of appreciating and being thankful for what they have; and waste time whining, cribbing, complaining and crying for what they do not possess.

    Hating, worrying, being envious of others, having a fat ego, cheating others, being untruthful, being thankless, being greedy, being unkind, and so on; waste time and suck out the real beauty from life.

    Life is a short, sweet, beautiful and priceless gift. Live it to the fullest.

    Enjoy this beautiful song of life.

      SBG 5:02
      Bhagavan Shri Krishna said:
      Renunciation and the Yoga of performing selfless action both lead to liberation. But among the two, the Yoga of performing selfless action is superior to the Yoga of renunciation of action.

      SBG 5:03
      A person who neither hates nor desires the results of his actions is known to be a Sanyasi or one who has renounced everything.  Such a person is free from dualities and is therefore liberated from material bondage.

      Continuing the fight means continuing to do the duties that one is prescribed with by destiny or rather the work that he or she has been blessed with. It could be the job of a soldier, a doctor, a teacher, a politician, a trader, a barber, a butcher, a parent, etc. Continuing to do one’s duty without being attached to the results or in other words, without having the result as the driving force, is Karmayoga. Surrendering has nothing to do with retaining or selling off property. Surrendering means accepting wholeheartedly whatever result one’s action gives. A soldier who fights for his country certainly does not want to give up his country but he fights without being bothered about success or defeat, he gives his best and is fearless at all times. That is Karmayoga and Sharanagati,
      SBG 2:48
      You have to do your duty without any attachment to its success, or to its failure. This kind of equanimity is known as Yoga.

      Feeling bad about giving up the ownership of something physical such as a real estate property, amounts to attachment towards it. In this case, surrendering before the Supreme Will could mean, doing your best to keep your property but in the event, it leaves you, you take it in a stride and move on.

      Giving up certain physical objects in business life can also be viewed as strategic moves that will play a more important role in the bigger picture.

      Please remain steadfast in your morals and principles, continue your efforts and be an unattached witness to all that happens in your life. Doing so makes life more enriching, helps in the growth of one’s wisdom and greatly

      I wish you well and continued Divine Blessings. Nothing is permanent – not even troubles and sorrows.

      Jai Shri Krishna

  58. The Bhagavad Gita – Film

    Namaste.

    An important objective of mine behind this website is to teach people the Srimad Bhagavad Gita which, I am sure, is the ultimate guide to learning the art of mastering one’s own mind. I was certainly lucky to have had the encouragement from my parents as well as the opportunity to read the amazing scripture while I was still a very young boy. However, as I grew up I wondered why most of the people I came across had never read the book although it takes hardly three to four hours to read all the 700 verses of the timeless Divine scripture. I then began to work on finding the reason behind this major problem among Dharmic people. After doing some research on the matter, interviewing people and from my general experience, I found out that it was a simple thing that usually discouraged people from reading The Srimad Bhagavad Gita. It was the sheer size and large number of pages of the book which had highly intellectual explanations of each and every verse. It was very uninviting and some people who did take the effort to start reading the book started feeling sleepy by the end of the first few pages.

    This discovery of mine supported by my deep desire to share my joy and experience with others led me to create a website for TVM Gita Samiti. I used large fonts and simple four-line translations of all the Shlokas. I also phonetically transliterated every verse so that people could easily achieve at least near-perfect pronunciation of the Shlokas and hosted the site in the month December 2014.

    Thousands of people have visited the site since then and have not only read the Divine scripture but have also learned ways to apply and incorporate the knowledge they gained by reading it into their daily lives.

    Below is a video that is an hour and 26 minutes long. It is a dramatised version of the Bhagavad Gita and it also has English subtitles. The time you spend watching the film will be a great investment in your life.

    There are three ways to treat this film, each of which teaches a different path towards attaining the ultimate goal.

    Bhakti Marga – The path of Devotion: A film of an event that actually happened in the past in which case you believe in the physical presence of Krishna and have utter devotion towards Him.
    Gnyaana Marga – The path of Knowledge: A film that teaches you metaphorically about the principles of Karma or of cause and effect; the five factors that cause action; righteous living; happiness; success; power; wealth; life; death; etc
    Karma Marga – The Path of Knowledge: A film that shows you the way to be a perfect Karmayogi whose only objective in life is to be a perfectionist in whatever he or she does thereby making huge progress in the process of one’s Karmic evolution.

    Remember that unlike in organised religions that ask their followers to ‘DO OR DIE BUT NOT ASK HOW OR WHY’, as per Krishna, asking questions or even being a sceptic is completely alright and in fact highly recommended by Him!
    SBG 4:34 Acquire knowledge through reverence to teachers who have known the Truth, serve them and ASK THEM QUESTIONS UNTIL ALL OF THEM ARE ANSWERED. The wise who know the Truth will teach it to you.

    Set aside the next one and a half hours of your precious time and watch this film at the end of which, you are sure to feel a hundred times stronger, absolutely fearless and ready to take on the toughest of challenges. Do ask your family members, particularly children to join you in watching the film and do not forget the popcorn, some peanuts and soft drinks for all of you!

  60. Namaste dear Vrischikans and others who are running periods of Saturn,

    After discussing in detail with some senior people who are currently running their third Sadé Sati period in life, I have come to understand that unless one works on self-improvement and carries out major changes in them, they do not experience any positive changes after the SS period ends. Therefore, those of you Vrischikans who are eagerly waiting for January 2020, might want to take stock of your situation and ensure that you have used the period well to become modest, shed ego, and understand the Supreme all-pervasive Brahman or Krishna residing in you, by reading and comprehending His teachings through the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. You might want to read and follow The Five Pearls too as they carry the essence of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita.

    Digging into your natal chart, sharing sad stories, sobbing along with others on blogs, and cursing ‘cruel planets’, can in no way improve situations. It is the mind that needs to be changed! Change your mind and change your life! It takes time to fully understand the changes that one needs to make in themselves but when that moment of realisation arrives, you will, in fact, be thankful for the challenging phase of life that you went through which actually led you to the divine state of self-realisation.

    Your present is the result of your past Karma and your future depends on your present Karma. If you do nothing, you will get nothing. Simply waiting for January 2020 won’t do! I had written earlier about Vrischikans currently being on the ‘home stretch’ of their Sadé Sati period but that was to indicate that the amazing Sadé Sati period, which is a great Karma balancing window, will soon end and that people should be stepping on the gas in the field of self-improvement.

    Stay blessed.

    Cribbing, complaining, fretting, fuming and wailing when things don’t go well are things that are usually done by people whom I call UNGRATEFUL. Being thankful for the blessings received instead of being unhappy for what one has not received, is a divine quality which unfortunately many people either do not possess or are unaware that they possess it.

    The thrill of life lies in how well one makes use of what one has, does their best in whatever task their Karma has given them, and in being useful to others.

    Everyone faces challenges in life, but the habit of complaining, which is the case with people who somehow feel entitled to better things, prevents them from thinking, being creative and bringing out their best.

    Here are Kody Lee and his wonderful mom. You may watch the video and see for yourselves the way this great lady has raised her son and taught him the way to express the unbelievable talent hidden in him.

  62. The lack of basic knowledge of the Sanatana Dharma has always been used by foreign soul traders in their horrible social crime of proselytising. It is due to their ignorance of the fact that theirs is a highly intellectual philosophy, many Sanatanis, who also happen to be poor, are conned into spiritually degrading or rather, downgrading themselves and embracing some organised foreign religion that teaches them bizarre stories not as metaphors, but literally, of a personal god, creation, devil, hell, heaven, and so on. More to follow in a separate post.

    M.K. Gandhi once said,“If I had power and could legislate, I should certainly stop all proselytising. It is the cause of much avoidable conflict between classes and unnecessary heart-burning among the missionaries. In Hindu households, the advent of a missionary has meant the disruption of the family coming in the wake of change of dress, manners, language, food and drink.

    The other day a missionary descended on a famine area with money in his pocket, distributed it among the famine-stricken, converted them to his fold, took charge of their temple and demolished it. This is outrageous. The temple could not belong to the converted, and it could not belong to the Christian missionary. But this friend goes and gets it demolished at the hands of the very men who only a little while ago believed that God was there.”

    May Dharma always prevail.

    With deep reverence for our great Dharmic ancestors who braved it all, stood tall, did not convert to other religions, guarded the timeless Sanatana Dharma for us, and caused our births into their blessed Dharmic families.

    Our friend @pavani wrote to me and said that she was pulled into an argument by someone and was told that ‘Hinduism’ (I don’t use this term but use ‘Sanatana Dharma’ instead) is regressive, false and primitive.

    The Sanatana Dharma is not an organised dogmatic religion with dos and don’ts. It is free and is ideal for seekers. All of us are constantly seeking, experiencing, learning and perfecting ourselves. The Sanatana Dharma as it is called is for rational thinkers. All the teachings imparted through ancient Dharmic scriptures are suitable for people whose minds are governed by logic, common sense and reason. That’s also how real science works.

    We don’t have the concept of creation that a god made the earth, the birds, animals, trees, mountains, man, woman (from the man’s rib) etc. , but we are continually trying to reason things out and find answers to our questions.

    People who read the first chapter of the book of Genesis from the Bible (just Google Genesis Bible and read for yourselves) and the 7 verses from the Nasadiya Sukta from the Rig Veda (link given below), will be able to easily tell which one of the two would be suitable for intellectual people.

    There is no point in arguing with brainwashed people. Religious conversions happen by planting a firm idea into one’s mind. Organised religions threaten apostasy with punishments so converted will not see reason so easily. The best thing that Dharmic people could do would be to spend some time once in a while and read scriptures of other religions too, instead of assuming things about them.

      First of all, thank you for putting my query in this forum and mentioning my name. Like you told me I also used the FAQs in this site to answer many questions which were asked to me. In fact I am very clear now about the fundamental principles of our religion. We should all have these answers on our fingertips. I read the first two chapters of genesis and have understood their story of the creation. Really I like the way in your Nassadia Suktha video you have shown the start of everything like the big bang- “There was neither existence nor non-existence, neither matter nor space” I am feeling so very blessed to be born in a family following Sanatan dharm and I thank you sincerely for enlightening us about things which we did not know earlier.

      I will follow your advice and start reading more. Thank you for your blessings to all of us.

      • Hello Pavani,

        One correction please – You said you were clear about the fundamental principles of our ‘religion’. Well, religion is a particular organised system of faith and worship which the Sanatana Dharma is not. One does not have to believe in the existence of god, a messiah, a messenger or a book to be Dharmic!

        We certainly have various Sampradayas which are spiritual lineages and other traditions that different groups of people follow. Sampradayas are traditions and other practices followed by Gurus which are passed down by their Shishyas or pupils but ultimately all Dharmic Sampradayas lead to the highest goal in life which is that of understanding the oneness of the infinite Truth. This ultimate goal is not the same as in the case of most organised religions. They propound a personal god but we worship an all-pervasive, timeless and formless Brahman whose manifestations can be seen and experienced in myriads of forms. I will be writing more on this.

        Stay blessed.

  64. India’s most beloved leader who follows the Srimad Bhagavad Gita

    Excerpts from Modiji’s victory speech today: 23/05/2019

    Modiji: “When the war of Mahabharata ended, Shri Krishna was asked whose side he was on. The answer which Lord Krishna had given then is the same answer which Indians have given today. Lord Krishna said that he was not on anyone’s side. He was on Hastinapur’s side. Now, 130 crore Indians have taken the form of Shri Krishna and are standing in support of India.

    I congratulate all the winners, no matter from which party or which region they contested. Those with closed minds won’t understand the voice of the people and what I’m trying to say. If anyone has won, it is India. Democracy and the people have won today.

    This victory belongs to India, not to Modi. It is the victory of the people who have longed for an honest government. I dedicate this victory to the hard working middle class of the nation. You have blessed me, an ordinary man with your love.

    There are two classes of people. One is that of the poor and the other of that of those who wish to contribute towards poverty alleviation.

    The spirit of democracy teaches us that although our party has won with an absolute majority, the participation of everyone including our opponents is required to run the country. I would, therefore, ask you all to treat whatever happened during the elections, or whatever people said about us, as things of the past and forget them. We would like to look ahead and take everyone along with us. We would also like to take our main opponents with us. It is for the good of the country that we should all be together and above all, despite such a massive victory, we need to be modest and humble. We will respect democracy and follow the Indian Constitution.

    When you elected me the last time in the year 2014, you did not know me very well but now you have known me and my work for five years and you have given me even more support than earlier. I understand the emotion of the people behind this huge victory.

    Please consider what I am going to say to be my vow to you. I make three promises today before you.
    1. I will never work with ill intent;
    2. I will never do anything for personal benefit; and
    3. every particle of my body and all my efforts will be for my fellow countrymen.

    My dear Indians, whenever you would like to evaluate my work, you could do so based on the three promises I have now made to you.

    Vande Mataram”

    SBG 9:27 Whatever you do, whatever you eat, whatever you offer in sacrifice, whatever you give, whatever you practise as austerity, O Arjuna, do it for Me and as an offering unto Me.

    Modiji, the greatest, the most powerful and the most loved (and also the most hated by anti-Dharma and anti-India forces) Indian, is a living proof for everyone, particularly for Vrischikans and others who are running periods of Saturn, that being a sincere Karmayogi is a sure way to attain great heights in life, make great Karmic progress and always be under the protection of the Supreme Being. I wonder if anyone else could have been able to receive and withstand the kind of massive verbal abuse that Modiji received from anti-national elements and yet remained undeterred and moved ahead with his Dharma as the only purpose of his life.


    A true Karmayogi is neither greedy of success nor afraid of failure. It is because of the mental equilibrium he maintains at all times.

    The leader of the world’s largest democracy strictly follows the teachings of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita which give him wisdom, courage, confidence, strength, truthfulness and the sheer mental power he has with which he sways the masses.

    Transcript:
    Modiji: “I am fighting this battle for you people. Brothers and sisters, what can they (the enemies of Dharma and country) do to me? (He means to ask what the worst case scenario could be) What is the worst that they can do to me? I am just a nobody. I can simply throw a bag on my shoulder and move out.”
    Modiji means he has nothing to lose and that he is not attached to anything.

    ततो युद्धाय युज्यस्व नैवं पापमवाप्स्यसि || २ ३८ ||

    SBG 5:03 A person who neither hates nor desires the results of his actions is known to be a Sanyasi or one who has renounced everything. Such a person is free from dualities and is therefore liberated from material bondage.

    May Modiji lead India into a bright future and may India regain her position as Vishwaguru, a status that was snatched away from her by evil colonial forces and other barbaric marauders.

    • Hello Amal.

      I offer my sincere condolences to the family of your friend. There are times when destiny can be extremely cruel. Did her death happen due to any negligence on the part of the doctors who treated her?

      The practice of saying R.I.P. which means ‘Rest in peace’, stems from Abrahamic religions. They don’t cremate their dead but bury them. This is because they believe in ‘the day of judgement’ when all dead people will be raised. By saying R.I.P, they wish the departed person’s soul to rest in peace until the day of the judgement.

      In the case of the Sanatana Dharma, on the other hand, the body is merely a garment for the imperishable Atman which. SBG 2:22 “As a person casts away old clothes for new ones, the embodied Self too casts old bodies away for new ones.” According to our Dharma, Atmans (or souls) don’t rest, but through various Janmas, they constantly move towards the Supreme Goal of Moksha. The Atman of a person is the same Supreme Energy or Brahman but during one’s Janma, it is locked in a body which has senses and a mind.

      Therefore when Abrahamic people say R.I.P, it means that they wish the dead person’s soul to rest peacefully within the coffin they are buried in until they are raised again, whereas, when we say ‘Om Shanti’ we wish the departed Atman ultimate peace by attaining Moksha or salvation after which there are no Janmas or births.

      You might want to be careful when you talk about this with Abrahamic people because they might take it as an offence when you say Om Shanti.

      I had written a post on this topic about four years ago:

    Namaste.

    I have been receiving emails from many of our friends in which they have written to me about their financial problems and have requested me to guide them in the right path towards seeking the blessings of Shri Mahalakshmi.

    The immediate steps I would suggest to all those who are eagerly awaiting Divine Grace to lift them up from stressful situations arising from monetary troubles would be to add the Mahalakshmi Ashtakam in their everyday prayer schedule. Close your eyes and listen to the Ashtakam three times. Try to learn the Ashtakam by heart and sing along or chant along with the voice in the recording. While listening to the Ashtakam, visualise all the material wealth that you wish for yourself in order to attain them into life. Do not forget to include The 5th Pearl of Social Responsibility in your prayers.
    (Tomorrow, 10/05/2019, being a Friday would be a great day to start this practice in order to attract wealth and fortunes into your life.)

    The YouTube video of the version that I have embedded on the page is the loveliest rendition of the Mahalakshmi Ashtakam that I have ever heard. The arrangement and the sweet voice of the singer are simply magical and heavenly.
