Instead of visualising negative and unpleasant situations in the mind, it would make sense to think of positive and pleasing ones.
This is for people who, despite all the knowledge that I impart on this site, would still like to live in a bubble of illusion believing that they need not do anything about anything but suddenly something nice will happen to them.
All changes begin from one’s own mind and therefore, it is one’s mind that people need to first conquer, master and enslave. Everything else will follow.

“கடவுளே! நான் என்ன பாவம் செய்தேன்?”- விதி என்றால் என்ன?
(The Tamil version of the ‘Karma and the “Why me” question video’
வாழ்க்கை என்பது பிறப்புக்கும் இறப்புக்கும் இடையிலான ஆன்மீக பயணத்தைத் தவிர வேறில்லை….
Proofreading in Tamil
I thank everyone who offered to help me. However, as it was in the middle of the night, I had to contact a friend in the USA with whom I could discuss the couple of sentences that I was unsure of.
My next video is in Tamil. It is the Tamil version of the “Karma and the ‘Why me’ question” video. It would be great if someone among our friends who uses this site and is good at Tamil or rather, someone who has studied Tamil, could contact me by mail. I might need some help with a couple of sentences as I am finding it difficult to find the right terms in Tamil.
Jai Shri Krishna.
Some come, some go, and some stay.
Among those who come into your life, there are some who make you happy, some who make you sad, some that hurt you, or those that just do nothing.
Among the ones that go out of your life, there are some whose exit makes you happy, some, whom you throw out of your life, and some who shatter you as they leave your life.

‘VEDIC ASTROLOGY – KARMA DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM’
Ever since I started this site in February 2014, what I have been saying about Vedic Astrology is that it is a great tool for ‘Karma diagnosis’ which helps in making course corrections in order to break negative patterns in one’s life. Another important thing that I have said time and again has been to never go too deep into Astrology or get stuck with it but to take hints from it, make changes in your life, and keep moving. I have even given the example of a medical diagnostic report that we do not keep looking into every day but put aside once the doctor prescribes us the necessary treatment.
I think I need to repeat what I have said in the past.
The principle of Cause and Effect aka Karma, is the one that appears to drive everything that happens in one’s life. This means that one’s ‘present’ is the result of their ‘past’ and their ‘future’ will be the result of their ‘present’.
Read SBG 15:08 again to read that every Atman enters a new Janma carrying along with it the mind and senses from the previous Janma.
The change of Dashas, Bhuktis indicate that the native would have learned his or her lessons during that period so that they make changes in themselves it is that which will lead to a change in their life.
Just as you can withdraw from your bank account only the amount that you have already deposited in it, the ‘Karmic bank’ of a person also gives them exactly what they have credited earlier.
Another natural law that I do not know how many times I must have repeated is, “If I continue to do what I have always done, I will continue to get what I have always got. If I want my life to change, I NEED TO CHANGE.” Therefore, being lazy; not learning anything from past experience; not strengthening one’s virtues of gratitude, humility, modesty, and compassion; and not making changes necessary in oneself in order to prepare them for the future, but expecting life to all of a sudden become a bed of roses just after the end of Sadé Sati or any other unfavourable Dasha, is nothing but stupidity or it can also be called insanity.
Those who have taken my advice and have studied the Srimad Bhagavad Gita (and not merely read some verses here and there) and have understood Universal Oneness and the law of Cause and Effect, are the ones who have had major changes in their lives. Have I not been teaching the Vedanta in a simple manner that is easy to understand? Have I not been saying that changing one’s life needs to begin with changing their own mind? The Five Pearls that I first taught a few years ago is the core essence of the SBG in merely 5 points. I came out with The Five Pearls particularly for people who are either of a lethargic nature or those who think they are too smart and wise to be reading an ancient book such as the SBG that I have named the perfect MIND MANAGEMENT MANUAL.
There are many of our friends who found themselves in rather unfavourable situations when they first came here. But then, they took the trouble of opening their mind and learning. Many of them found love during their Sadé Sati, got married, and were even blessed with children. However, I feel sad to say that I have also come across some people who haven’t made the slightest change in them even after their completing their Sadé Sati. They seem to have overlooked my posts such as ‘The Chequered Flag for Vrischikans’ and ‘At last – the END of SADÉ SATI for Vrischikans’ in which I have discussed in detail the steps that people need to take in order to break old negative patterns in their life and start new positive ones.
After publishing an Audiobooks of the SBG on Amazon, I also published a YouTube video of a run-through of the SBG. I shall certainly not stop figuring out new ways to enable as many people as possible to read and understand the life-changing and Karma-changing book.
Let me end this post by encouraging you read the SBG, listen to my Audiobook(s), or watch the Run-Through Video a few times. It will surely make a great difference in your life. If you are looking for something new or some major change in life, start by working on learning to manage your mind. The rest will follow. And so what even if they don’t? Life is happening NOW. Be thankful for it and truly celebrate it.
The last 14-minute section of the video starting at 1:37:42 contains the essence of the entire Scripture. Those who would like to invest some time to understand the philosophy of the SBG completely may watch the video from the beginning.
The Run-through is meant to serve in making it easier for people to understand the philosophy taught in the Scripture and also to watch or listen to often in order to imbibe the Vedantic teachings of Krishna.

It brings me great joy to see that people from 158 of the 195 countries of the world have visited this site!
I wish and hope that this site, which is basically a place for people to study the fundamentals of the timeless Sanatana Dharma, and one where I share my thoughts about various subjects concerning life in general, continues to inspire people to not merely exist in the world but to truly live, love, relish and celebrate the Divine and most magnificent gift called life.
Let us all express our gratitude for the greatest Blessing that we receive every moment of our life, by committing ourselves to living responsibly.
Being a “RESPONSIBLE SOUL”
The 11th of September 1893 – The unforgettable talks of Swami Vivekananda at the Parliament of World’s Religions in Chicago
Listening to the talk can give anyone a clear understanding of the Sanatana Dharma. I suggest that you listen to the speech, which has been read out by another person and simultaneously following it by reading the entire text of the speech. I have added relevant Shlokas from the Srimad Bhagavad Gita for better and clearer understanding.
Please do yourselves a favour by going through the entire speech. The 44 minutes you spend on it will certainly be a useful investment of time.
Page with the entire text of the speech
Although the term ‘Maya’ means illusion or magic, the most important interpretation of the term is the unfathomable CREATIVE POWER of the all-pervading absolute Brahman, which is veiled by the relative manifestation world of the Maya.
Since it embodies the seemingly visible world as a whole, the concept of the Maya unites all dualities within itself and encompasses both the positive knowledge (vidya) and the negative ignorance (avidya) of man.
There are two negative aspects of Maya,
a. Its concealing power that hides the truth under a veil, and
b. Its projecting power that makes the truth appear to man as another reality.
Maya is shaped by the Gunas. The veiling comes from the property of the Tamas Guna and the power to push it or project it forward stems from the Rajas Guna.
The easiest way to not be affected by Maya is non-attachment. Clinging to Maya would be like clinging to smoke.
Everything is a dream and, waking up from this great dream can also be called Moksha or dissolving into the Whole.
A Virtual Sunrise – Meditation Session that includes a peek into your Self to perceive your own Divinity.
Recently, someone greeted me saying, “Radhe Radhe” I asked her what that was and what she meant by that. I can understand ‘Jai Shri Krishna, but what is ‘Radhe Radhe’? Who started that? What is the story behind it? Is it because some people believe that Krishna can be easily pleased by going through his ‘lover’? But He has explicitly said in SBG 9:32 that anyone, no matter which gender, caste, or economical status, can directly approach Him. Doesn’t approaching Krishna through his ‘lover’ and not wife resemble the way some businessmen gratify politicians in order to receive special favours from them?
None of you would have ever found me mentioning the name ‘Radha’ or ‘Radhe Radhe’ anywhere in my writings except in this post of mine. This is because I prefer staying on course rather than straying away into bylanes. The lady said to me that people from a group that ‘is CONning’ people usually say that. I said that the Sanatana Dharma is not a religion or cult but it is a timeless eternal path trodden by great wise people who have left behind priceless knowledge and information for us that we could seek guidance and draw inspiration from in order to live a fulfilling life and progress in our Karmic journey towards our ultimate goal of Moksha or dissolving into the Whole. Read SBG.: 9:23, 9:24,
Nevertheless, in order to have some clarity in mind, it would make sense to ask oneself the following questions: Who was Radha? And who was Rukmini? How old was Krishna when He knew Radha and left Gokula? When Krishna is the personification of the Whole, what is the reason to worship Radha or use her name in greetings?
As per the Sanatana Dharma, Shiva and Shakti represent the male and female energies (like Yin and Yang in Chinese culture) Krishna is the personification of the whole (12:05) Krishna is NOT some spirit like being or a bearded man sitting in the clouds! Krishna is the personification of the indefinable, ineffable, and incomprehensible and All-Pervading Brahman without which nothing can ever exist. He is the personification of the SELF in all beings. SBG 10:20, 13:02, 13:28. It is unfortunate that although Krishna Himself has taught Advaita, there are organisations that create new cults, propagate Dvaita, and divide our Vasudheiva Kutumbakam through their ‘we are greater than thou’ methods.
I also asked the lady if she had watched my Q&A video on Sanatana Dharma – In English as well as in Tamil.
The Sanatana Dharma is a highly advanced philosophy that cultists are trying to manipulate and take over. My intention is to bring about more clarity in thinking and not hurt the beliefs of people. When people ask me if I believe in something, all I say is that I am a humble seeker and that even to say ‘I believe in something’ amounts to arrogance. This is because I feel who am I to say I even believe in or not believe in something? How do I know I am right? So, if I claimed to be right it would only mean that all others were wrong, which is nothing but what organised Abrahamic cults also claim.
I feel our aim should be to unite as one in the quest for knowledge and not divide our family through individual beliefs, cults, sects, castes, creeds, babas, ammas, and so on.
I use the Srimad Bhagavad Gita as a manual to lead a life of a seeker with childlike awe and enthusiasm, to help those who are already there in our family understand its great values, and to show outsiders the way into our grand Divine family that has no boundaries, conditions, rules, threats, and punishments as in cults started by humans.

NEW VIDEO IN TAMIL
This video is about the missionary menace that has been plaguing India and many other countries. It is most unfortunate that a lot of people who do not possess any knowledge of even the fundamentals of the Sanatana Dharma and of other organised religions that entered India from other countries, make bold but clichéd statements such as ‘all religions are the same,’ or ‘whichever your religion, follow it thoroughly,’ and so on.
I made my first video on this topic in the Tamil language because I am well aware of the fact that there are numerous powerful and wealthy missionary organisations thriving in the state of TN, especially deep down in the south.
May this video serve as an eye-opener to people who are at risk of being brainwashed by missionaries and other soul traders who live off destroying the lives of others.
This video also strongly urges people to read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita at least once in their lifetime.
May all live as one large Dharmic family – Vasudheiva Kutumbakam.
A Run-through of the Srimad
Bhagavad Gita by Tavamithram
Most issues in life can be easily handled, and even the greatest of challenges can be comfortably overcome simply by altering one’s way of perceiving them. This calls for mastery over one’s own mind.
I call the Srimad Bhagavad Gita the timeless, universal and best mind management manual ever.
This Run-through of the SBG is aimed at quickening and simplifying going through all the 18 chapters of the scripture and comprehending the basic philosophy that it teaches encompassing universal oneness, Karma, Dharma, the nondualistic philosophy of Advaita Vedanta, Fearlessness, Social Responsibility, Respect for Nature, and above all, the highly misunderstood ‘God Concept’ of the Sanatana Dharma.
The Supreme Truth exists equally in all beings thus making all beings equally Divine. There is no being that is inferior or superior to others. The Self in everyone is Krishna or the Supreme Brahman (Ref: Shloka 10:20)
Following the Divine Teachings of Krishna and learning to live the life of a true KarmaYogi are sure to guide a seeker on the path of righteousness through a rewarding and fulfilling life.
May you stay blessed with excellent health, freedom, peace, happiness and prosperity.
Coming to think of it, after centuries of slavery under brutal foreign rulers belonging to barbaric cults, after achieving independence in the year 1947; after Sardar Patel convinced the rulers of 562 princely states to join the Indian union; after being ruled by a plundering dynasty for almost seven decades and being divided in the name of religion, caste, etc.; it is only now that Bharat or India is beginning to get back her truly deserved status in the world. It is thanks to the sincere, arduous, relentless, courageous, visionary, altruistic, patriotic, and socially responsible efforts by the current Indian Prime Minister who is a living example of a true KarmaYogi.
