Message on International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

On this vital and - unfortunately - necessary International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, HH Param Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji spoke-out against the increasing violence enacted against women, declaring that "these incidents are shaming humanity!" "In the UK, the US and other countries around the world, nearly one in three women are victims of domestic violence; innumerable more are victims of rape and other atrocities. In India, sixty-eight percent of women are abused - and, because of Covid-mandated lockdowns, that number is even higher. Even when they are...

Dhanteras Blessings

"Spirituality is not how we can have more but how we can be more. Spirituality is focused on bhatna (sharing and giving), not bhatorna (hoarding), as it’s not merely about filling our shelves but more about filling our Self. “Either you focus on your shelf or you focus on yourself. If we spend our lives trying to fill our shelves, at the end of it we realize that our self feels pretty empty. It’s not about where you vacationed, what car you drive or your diamond necklace. It's about how you...

The Buddha’s Gift

After many years of sadhana in the forest, the Buddha attained enlightenment. However, once he attained this state, what did he do? Did he stay in the forest and continue only to enjoy the divine ecstasy of union with God? Did he spend all of his time in meditation, puja and silence? No. He immediately came back to the world and started serving. He immediately started to share this treasure chest of wisdom with all. Whatever he knew, whatever he had realized, he spent every minute of his life sharing...

Tell the Truth

Sometimes we think that simply because something is true, it is correct speech. However, there are many hurtful things which may be true but are neither kind nor beneficial. Telling someone, for example, that they are ugly or stupid or fat may be true, but it serves only to hurt the listener. Alternatively, lying to someone just to be kind is also not tapas of speech. We must speak the truth, but in a way that serves the greater good, not just our own selves or our egos. Today, the whole...
