“Desires that impel us to remain unsatisfied”, The Times of India

This article was published in The Times of India, here. By Swami Chidanand Saraswati Many years ago, before the severe violence in Jammu & Kashmir, we travelled to Kashmir to spend a few days meditating on the Dal Lake. All the members of our group enjoyed themselves so much that we delayed our departure date and remained there for one month instead of a few days as was planned earlier. Each week we would postpone our departure from that heavenly, pristine, glorious environment. “Just one more week,” the devotees would cry, so...

“GPS Mantra: Faith In God’s Perfect System”

Published in The Times of India, 10 August 2018 Three men sitting under a tree were talking about God.  One man said, "I don't believe that God is perfect.  In fact, there are so many things that an ordinary, reasonable man would be able to plan better than God.  For example, look at the pumpkin patch where hundreds of pumpkins are growing large and round.  But they are attached to tiny, thin vines that are collapsing under their weight, and hence are on the ground!" Another man agreed and pointed to the mangoes...

Suddenly, something moved, so quickly, from the bushes. It was a human form. Then appeared another one, just thirty seconds later. I asked the driver to stop the car. As my eyes adjusted, I...
