New Year Blessings: Keep Moving Towards the Light – Grow Those Wings & Fly

At this beautiful time of the New Year, it is the time when most people pray that the New Year will be easier, better, more successful than the year which has passed. However, at this time when we pray and make our own resolutions, it is so important to remember the ultimately the purpose of our lives is not just to have things be as easy as possible, nor to be as successful and/or prosperous as possible. The point of our lives is to realize our own true divine nature,...

New Year Blessings: A New Year – A New You

At this time of the New Year inevitably people make resolutions, vows, promises and goals to become “new” in some way.  We are always looking for some pill, some book or some practice we can use to become “newer and better.”   These days there is talk everywhere about the “Secret to Youth.” Advertisements, commercials, billboards and magazines coax us to purchase their products, subscribe to their services or attend their retreats in order to attain the elusive Fountain of Youth.

Diwali Blessings

In celebration of this joyous Diwali occasion, one can see beautifully lit oil lamps and candles glowing in the darkness of night throughout India and wherever Indians have settled in the world.

However, on this day we must not only light beautiful lamps in our homes and offices, but we must light the lamp in our hearts. The Divine Light Within Within each of us shines the Divine Light. The Divine Presence is not only everywhere outside of...

Dear Divine Souls, Happy New Year! I hope that – by God’s grace – this finds you all in the best of health and happiness.

Diwali Blessings

At this divine time of Diwali we line our homes, our rooms, our offices and our streets with brightly shining diyas. The illuminated lamps signify the people of Ayodhya’s love for Bhagawan Rama and their joy at his return.  On this day, however, we must light not only beautiful lamps in our homes, but we must light the lamp in our hearts. Within each of us shines the Divine Light. The Divine Presence is not only everywhere outside of us, it is also within us. In the Bhagavad Gita, Bhagawan Krishna...

Happy Diwali Blessings

In our lives, our greatest welcome to Him can be light not only in the oil lamp, but light in our hearts. If we light the lamp of love, of selflessness, of...
