Guru Purnima Blessings

Dear Divine Souls, I hope that – by God’s grace – this finds you and all your loved ones in the best of health and happiness at this sacred time. Today marks the holy day dedicated to the Guru. The full moon of the Guru.  However, the Guru’s light is always full. The light of the Guru never dissipates or wanes. There is no such thing as the “half-moon” of the Guru or quarter-moon or sliver-of-a-moon of the Guru. The light and grace of the Guru is purna, always full, always constant.   That’s what...

Holi – The Holi-day to Let It All Go

Dear Divine Souls, Today is the sacred and beautiful day of Holi, a day celebrated across India with great joy, gaiety and festivity.

The GPS System For Our Lives

These days in the West all the new cars have “GPS” navigation system where the computer in the car gives directions on how to reach your destination. As you sit in the car you just enter the address of where you are going, and throughout the journey a pleasant woman’s voice guides you: “Take a left turn in 200 meters.” However, after you’ve entered the destination address, before her guided instructions begin, you must press the “Accept” button on the screen. If the button is not pushed, the guided route will not begin and you...

Guru Purnima Blessings

There is a famous story in our scriptures of Eklavya who dreamt of becoming a great archer. He went to the best and most famous Guru of archery, Dronacharya, and humbly begged Dronacharya to teach him archery. However, for various reasons, Dronacharya refused. Unfazed, resolute in his devotion, Eklavya did not despair. Rather, he went deep into the forest for his sadhana of learning to be an archer. There, he created out of clay the image of Dronacharya. Each day, he offered devout, pious prayers and love to this image of his Guru.  His faith...

Desires & Desirelessness

One of the greatest plagues of human beings is our insatiable desires. We truly never feel satisfied. We never feel that we have had “enough.” We are always looking for more and more and more.

Our bank accounts are getting fuller but our lives are getting emptier because we are always striving to close “just one more deal” or to...
