  1. Namaste dear Visitor.

    This is a site that I use as a ‘loud thinking’ platform in which, I share the knowledge of Advaita Vedanta as also experiences from my eventful life. This is not an astrological site and therefore, please refrain from sending me requests for astrological predictions.

    The Advaita Vedanta is what I call RATIONAL PHILOSOPHY. Should you wish to communicate with me, it would be useful if you could complete going through the Srimad Bhagavad Gita at least once because whatever I would be talking about would be based on the philosophy taught in this great Divine Scripture.

    Please click on the link below to take a look at the resources I offer people to study the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. It includes a Run-Through video of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita which is less than two hours long.


    Stay blessed.

    Jai Shri Krishna.


  2. This is a picture sent to me by one of my former students.

    I have added a few words to it:
    Happiness and contentment are states of mind. They depend on one’s perception of reality and their ability to come to terms with it.
    Do not bother about what others think or might say. Enjoy life. Enjoy the NOW. There is nothing else more real than the NOW.


  3. Just forget about what others think of you. Do not bother about all that. Do you know who you are? Are you sure, or, are you at least convinced to a certain extent, who you are? If your answer is a ‘Yes,’ that should do.
    Just go for it! Live life! be happy! And never allow others to control your life!


  4. Humble Pranam to our beloved amazing Prime Minister Modiji who is my personal ‘Dronacharya’ whom I have never met but whose every word and deed set standards for me to emulate in my life.

    I feel highly blessed to exist on the planet at the same time as Modiji. What else but my own good past Karma can it be that made it possible?

    A take-home from this video that can help many of you would be to never hold back in appreciating others such as your parents, spouse, children, friends, colleagues, lover or anyone else you might come across in your life. Be generous and truly lavish in your words. The natural law of Cause and Effect guarantees that what you do will come back to you someday or the other. Being unstinted and big-hearted in appreciating others always has magical effects that can soften and sweeten even highly unpleasant situations.

    Jai Shri Krishna

    My comment on this video of our beloved Modiji:
    An honest, righteous, disciplined, sincere, self-confident, principled, fearless, socially responsible, and blessed leader such as our beloved Modiji is always lavish in appreciating others including their political opponents. Thank you very much Modiji for leading and guiding our great nation. May you stay abundantly blessed with excellent health.


  5. Namaste.

    Just after I had experienced a new miracle that afternoon on the 7th of February 2014, I decided to actively take to share with others the methods that I use to face challenges; set goals and achieve them; stay calm and composed even in the most difficult of situations; continue to evolve Karmically; and experience a fulfilling life. It has been seven beautiful and eventful years since then.

    Through this site, thousands of people connected with me and we could help enrich each other’s lives.

    I wish you all the very best, wonderful life ahead, and a highly rewarding Karmic voyage.

    Jai Shri Krishna

  6. Mahamrutyunjaya Mantra

    (Rig Veda 7:59:12 ऋग्वेद ७/५९/१२)

    May you all stay blessed with a long and healthy life.

    ॐ त्र्यम्बकं यजामहे सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम्‌ ।
    उर्वारुकमिव बन्धनान्मृत्योर्मुक्षीय माऽमृतात्‌ ।
    [Aum Tryambakam yajaamahé sugandhim pusht-hi vardhanam
    urvaarukam-iva bandhanaan mrtyor mukshiya maamrtaat]

    We worship Tryambaka – the three-eyed one, who is the fragrant augmenter of prosperity. Just as a fruit falls from its stem, so may we be released from death and attain immortality.


  7. 4 DURGA MANTRAS – Meditation


    सर्वाबाधा प्रशमनं त्रैलोक्यस्याखिलेश्वरि।
    एवमेव त्वया कार्यमस्मद्दैरिविनाशनम्।।
    sarvaa-baadhaa prashamanam trailokyas-yaakileshvari
    evameva tvaiyaa kaaryam-asmad-vairi-vinaashaanam
    O Sarveshvari – the Mother of the three worlds! When you are pleased, you remove all obstacles and troubles, and your blessings destroy all (inner) enemies.

    ॐ सर्वाबाधा विनिर्मुक्तो, धन धान्यः सुतान्वितः।
    मनुष्यो मत्प्रसादेन भविष्यति न संशयः ॐ ।।
    Aum sarvaa-baadhaa vinir-mukto, dhana dhaanyah sutaan-vitah
    manushyo mat-prasaadena bhavishyati na samshayaha Aum
    There is no doubt that the one who offers obeisance to you will have a future which is free from all obstacles in life and is blessed with wealth, food, and progeny.

    सर्वमङ्गलमाङ्गल्ये शिवे सर्वार्थसाधिके ।
    शरण्ये त्र्यम्बके गौरि नारायणि नमोऽस्तु ते ॥
    sarva mangala maangalye shive sarvaartha saadhike
    sharaNye tryambaké gauri naarayaNi namostuté
    O Narayani – the most auspicious one and the one who bestows auspiciousness upon everything and fulfils the objectives of devotees. You are pure and holy. You, the ‘three-eyed’ Gauri (the one who sees the past, the present, and the future), protect everyone who takes refuge in you, Salutations to you, O Mother Narayani.

    रोगानशेषानपहंसि तुष्टा रुष्टा तु कामान् सकलानभीष्टान्।
    त्वामाश्रितानां न विपन्नराणां त्वामाश्रिता ह्माश्रयतां प्रयान्ति।।
    rogaa na sheshaana pahamsi tushtaa rushta tu kaamaan sakalaana bhiishtaan
    tvaa-maashritaa-naam na vipanna-raaNaam tvaamaashritaa hyaashrayataam prayaanti
    O Mother, when you are pleased with our devotion, you destroy all diseases and (inner) enemies but when you are displeased, you destroy all aspirations and desires (and they are not fulfilled). Those who take refuge in you do not suffer troubles.



  8. Speech by Swami Vivekananda in Chicago – September 1893

    The day was the 11th of September in 1893, when Swami Vivekananda, a young Indian from Bengal, started delivering his powerful speeches at the Parliament of World’s Religions in Chicago. His profound knowledge of various scriptures including the Srimad Bhagavad Gita, apart from his deep understanding of the Advaita Vedanta or the philosophy of non-dualism and universal oneness, can be easily experienced through his historic speeches.


  9. Past Karma leads a person to the next step in the process of their Karmic Evolution

    Jonas Masetti – Vishwanatha from Brazil was blessed to study Vedanta at Arsha Vidya Gurukulam as a disciple of none other than its founder Swami Dayananda Saraswati himself who is revered to be one of the greatest teachers of Advaita Vedanta in modern times.

    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.


  10. Connecting the dots…

    Everything that happens, including the ones that seem trivial, innocuous or inconsequential, are in fact, ‘dots’ that will eventually connect to something or the other in the future. Every moment of life matters. Everything that happened in your life, and everyone that came into your life or left it, have been ‘dots in your life’ in the form of learning experiences that have either already connected to something in the present or are sure to connect to something in the future.

    Life is happening NOW – Live it – Respect it – Relish it – Celebrate it – Share it

    “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma (organised religion) — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs, Stanford, 12.06.2005

    This is a speech that I listen to quite often and I usually recommend it to everyone I know.


  11. After my own amazing Father, if at all I have ever admired anyone to such an extent that the very thought of that person can send a shot of undiluted adrenaline and power through my entire system, it is none other than the Indian Prime Minister, our loving and most revered Shri Narendra Modiji.

    We might have setbacks in life, but failure is something that happens only when we actually allow it to happen!


  12. “मैं ही क्यों?” “Why me?” (in Hindi) पिछले जन्मों के कर्मों से निपटने का रास्ता क्या है?

    (Tavamithram’s 1st video in Hindi)

    “मेरे सपनों में भी, मैंने कभी किसी का नुकसान नहीं किया!.”
    “ऐसा क्यों है कि जब मैं गंभीर परेशानियों से गुजर रहा हूँ, मेरे पड़ोसियों को जीवन में सभी अच्छी चीजें मिलती हैं?”
    “क्या कोई रास्ता है जिससे हम हमारी समस्याओं को हल कर सकते हैं और हमारे जीवन को ठीक भी कर सकते हैं?”

    एक रास्ता अवश्य है। उसके माध्यम से आप एक संतोषप्रद, पूर्ण और धन्य जीवन जी सकते हैं।

  13. परमार्थतत्त्वम् “PARAMAARTHA-TATTVAM” – THE GOD PRINCIPLE – “NOT THIS, NOT THAT” Then what is it?

    1. Why are many people so confused in life when they face challenges that they call troubles?
    2. Why do people rush to places of worship, godmen, god women, or any others who they believe would save them from the difficult situations they are in?
    3. Why are people who are weak due to economical or any other reason so vulnerable and therefore are easily preyed upon by soul-traders?
    4. Why is it that when some people face problematic situations in life, they feel that ‘God’ is testing their faith?

    We could come up with many more such questions for which the one simple answer would be that those people have a wrong ‘God concept’ that is based on primarily the Abrahamic concept of a separate God or father in heaven, and the two main reasons behind the ignorance of the most important principle of the ALL-PERVADING GOD PRINCIPLE of the Sanatana Dharma are:
    a. People, for whatever the reason might be, do not bother to study for themselves even basic scriptures like the Srimad Bhagavad Gita and some short Upanishads,
    b. Their desire to always find someone who would ‘tell them what to do.’

    The lack of fundamental knowledge of the principles of the Sanatana Dharma and a completely warped ‘God Concept’ lead to the asinine “Your God and my God” quarrels among the people. They are the prime factors that cause gaping holes in the social system, which enable foreign soul vultures to enter it, deride Bharatiya practices, ridicule deities that are basically physical forms of the Supreme God Principle in which a seeker is free to visualise it, manipulate the minds of masses, control them, and permanently infect them with their mental diseases in the form of their organised religions or cults.

    People who would like to do themselves a favour by taking steps towards comprehending the Supreme Philosophy of Advaita Vedanta, and being a master of their own mind and destiny, might want to seriously take up studying at least the fundamentals of Advaita Vedanta and the natural principle of Cause and Effect. The videos and posts I present on my sites are aimed at enabling more and more people to begin their journey of studying the timeless philosophy of our great ancestors.

    Stay blessed.

    Jai Shri Krishna


  14. Illusion and Perception used for Mass Mind Manipulation. What is “Neti Neti”?

    The term ‘perception’ can be defined as judgment resulting from awareness or understanding. It is a process that takes place in the mind. One of the numerous definitions of the term ‘mind’ is that it is the organised conscious and unconscious adaptive mental activity of an organism. CLICK BELOW TO READ ON.


  15. If you haven’t read the Srimad Bhagavad Gita yet, do it today, right now. It would be the most important step you would be taking in your life after which, you would be able to comfortably manage even the most challenging of situations. This is experience talking.

    Jai Shri Krishna

    I am reminded of an old saying in the Tamil language: “யாம் பெற்ற இன்பம் பெறுக இவ்வையகம்.” It means “May the world receive the bliss that I attained.”

    Since I deem it my Karmic responsibility to share with others what I have learned and the bliss I attained by doing so, I offer below a few ways with the help of which people may acquire and INTERNALISE the amazing knowledge of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita.

    My website with SIMPLE TRANSLATIONS IN A LARGE FONT of the entire Srimad Bhagavad Gita website.
    My Audiobooks or on online stores such as Amazon and Storytel.

    My Paperbacks
    A Run-Through of the SBG


    Do you think that you still do not have the time for it? Never mind, Sooner or later, there will come a time when your destiny too will lead you to this life-changing scripture. Until then – take care and be good.


  16. Namaste.

    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.

    You could yourselves the SBG editions that I have published on Amazon. Those who do not have the time or inclination to read it might want to watch the SBG Run-Through video (given below) that I have published on YouTube which is free for all.

    Stay blessed.

    Jai Shri Krishna

  17. “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….


  18. 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.

    Jai Shri Krishna


  19. Proofreading in Tamil


    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.

    Thank you.

    Jai Shri Krishna.


  20. Responsible Soul

    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.




    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.

    Jai Shri Krishna.


  22. The True Essence of the SRIMAD BHAGAVAD GITA

    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.

    Jai Shri Krishna


  23. We have Vistors from 158 countries!

    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.

    Jai Shri Krishna
