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.

Boomerang Theory

This article was published on The Speaking Tree, here. The Gita’s messages are just as applicable in the boardroom as in the battlefield, says SWAMI CHIDANAND SARASWATI In the Bhagwad Gita, Krishna tells Arjuna to perform his duties without any attachment to the fruits of his labour.

The 18th of June marked Ganga Dussehra, the day we lovingly refer to as “Gangaji’s Birthday.” It is the day on which we commemorate the time when, answering the tapasya and incessant prayers of King Bhagirath, Ganga flowed down from the heavens to the Earth. Ganga did not flow down merely because She wanted to, but rather with a very specific purpose –...
