Guru Purnima

Dear Divine Souls, I hope that — by God’s grace — this finds you and all of your families and loved ones in the best of health and happiness. It is the sacred time of the year in which we give thanks and offer our humble gratitude, love and devotion to our Gurus. What is a Guru? A Guru is one who removes our darkness.

Divine Insurance Company

This article was published in The Speaking Tree, here. In one question and- answer session, a woman asked me with tears in her eyes, “How do you overcome fear? I live my life so afraid all the time.The object of my fear changes as time passes, but the fear remains.” In my opinion, this omnipresent fear is the most insidious obstacle to our peace,happiness and progress in life.When I say fear, I don’t necessarily mean terror.Rather,I mean all that makes us anxious, nervous, tense and in need of controlling our surroundings.The...

Inspiring Blessings on Buddha Jayanti

Dear Divine Souls, Today is the sacred and beautiful day of Buddha Jayanti – the day on which the Divine Buddha incarnated on Earth to bring wisdom, inspiration and blessings to humanity.

When he was born, a well known astrologer told Buddha’s father that his son would either be an emperor or a sanyasi (holy renunciant). The king understood that in order to prevent his son from renouncing the material...

Ram Navami Blessings: The Message of Bhagwan Rama’s Life

On Ram Navami we celebrate the divine time when Bhagwan Vishnu manifested on Earth in the form of Bhagwan Rama. The Ramayana gives us the message of Bhagwan Rama’s life and teachings. The word “Rama” literally means one who is divinely blissful and who gives joy to others, and one in whom the sages rejoice. As the founder of the nation, Mahatma Gandhiji, collapsed to his death after having been viciously shot, he had no words of vengeance or anger for his murderers. Rather, the only words which escaped his lips...

When Egos Clash

This article was published on The Speaking Tree, here. A complaint I often hear is, “We always fight over little things. Everything is an argument.” This is a matter of ego. Somewhere along the way, both husband and wife have decided that they know best and that they will have it “my way.” This gets nobody anywhere. Our own ego thinks that we are always right, that everyone around us should do things the way we say. Couples often begin to quarrel over trivial issues, which then escalates into a full-blown...
