Homage to the Mother Form

"It is not the building that makes a home, but it is the feminine touch that makes it", says a Sanskrit poet, and how true it is!

Receiving manifolds in your Giving

Like poles repel each other in our natural world. Just as a rich man has jealousy for the other rich and no poor feels sympathy for another poor, in the world of the spiritual the equation is altogether different; like polarities attract but on the condition that I have to first give what I want to...

Would Life be Unsupportable without Pain?

Here, where the world is quiet; Here, where all trouble seems Dead winds' and spent waves' riot In doubtful dreams of dreams; I watch the green field growing For reaping folk and sowing, For harvest-time and mowing, A sleepy world of streams. ……. …….
