Work with transcendental results

The learned sages inform us that one takes his birth in India, the holy land of Bharata-varsa, after the gradual process of evolution through 8,400,000 species of life, including 900,000 aquatic species, 2,000,000 nonmoving species such as vegetables and hills, 1,100,000 germ and insect species, 1,000,000 bird species, 3,000,000 lower-animal species, and 400,000 human species.

How to become a calmer, gentler, and less reactive person…

In order to become a calmer, gentler, and less reactive person, it’s essential to understand that your experience of life is created from the inside out – not the other way around, as it so often seems. Imagine many people stuck in a traffic jam. A vast majority of these people had just finished work. […]

The Superintendence of God

We should always know that God is ever kind to us. Despite our gross disobedience to the laws of God’s nature, the Lord is kind enough to look after our maintenance. Water is one of the most important items for our maintenance, because without water we can neither produce food grains nor quench our thirst. […]

Finding a New Spring

Once upon a time a certain tradesman was leading a caravan to another country to sell his goods. Along the way they came to the edge of a severe hot-sand desert. They asked about, and found that during the daytime the sun heats up the fine sand until it’s as hot as charcoal, so no […]

Throughway to Happiness

Every one of us is searching after happiness, but we do not know what real happiness is. We see so much advertised about happiness, but practically speaking we see so few happy people. This is because so few people know that the platform of real happiness is beyond temporary things. It is this real happiness […]

Understanding the Absolute Truth

At present, we are concerned primarily with two things: one, ourselves; and the other, the place where we live. In other words, we are concerned with two objects: namely, everything that is related to our gross and subtle bodies; and the world at large, with all its paraphernalia. But there are others above us, the […]

The Champion’s Edge

The champion’s edge is not in a gifted birth; a high Intelligent Quotient (IQ) or in talent. The champion’s edge is all in the ATTITUDE (how you do what you do); not aptitude. How you do what you do determines the quality of the results you get in your life. It is what you do […]

There are still going to be errors, but focus on doing the best you can

You can try and try – you can make allowances for contingencies and mix-ups, but there are still going to be errors. And when errors happen, forget a promise, meeting, or commitment; then someone is going to be hurt, upset, mad, or disappointed. Rather than becoming upset, defensive, or guilty, maintain your bearings and remain […]

What is the Real Source of Energy?

Matter itself has no creative power. When it is manipulated by the living energy, material things are produced. Matter in its crude form is therefore the latent energy of the Supreme Being. Whenever we think of energy, it is natural that we think of the source of energy. For example, when we think of electrical […]

Criticism is something all of us must face

The truth is, critics are a fact of life, and criticism is something all of us must face. In fact, the only way to avoid criticism is to live an isolated life where people aren’t exposed to your work, personality, or behavior. Sometimes the criticism we receive is valuable, even helpful. If you think about […]

Do you want to see God?

“Can you show me God? Have you seen God?” These are the questions we commonly come across. So the answer is here. Yes, you can see God. Everyone can see God. But there must be the qualification. Lord Krishna says in the Bhagavad-gita: naham prakashau sarvasya yoga-maya-samavatau: [Bhagavad-gita. 7.25] “I am not exposed to everyone. […]

Your Future Lies with God

Your future is not determined by who YOU know and who YOU don’t know, who likes YOU and who doesn’t like YOU? The power to fulfill YOUR destiny is within YOU! Almighty GOD put it in there… YOU should make every effort to discover it… harness it… master it and exhibit it to HIS glory. […]

Every obstacle presents an opportunity

In ancient times, a king had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear, but none […]

Be a Yes Man, Quote on Karma Yoga

Anything that is going on in this world, is under the supreme supervision of the Lord. There is a philosopher’s saying, “Not a blade of grass moves without the will of God.” It is actually the fact. Now, we have to dovetail ourselves with that plan of the Supreme Lord. That is called karma-yoga. So […]

Omnipotence of the Lord

Krishna can be in constant companionship with us because He is omnipotent. Therefore, He can be fully in touch with us by His words. His words and He are not different. That is omnipotence. Omnipotence means that everything relating to Him has the same potency. For example, here in this material world, if we are […]

A Simple Guide to De-clutter Your Mind

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” – Leonardo DaVinci. The goal of reducing clutter is to eliminate the non-essentials and keep only what is needed. If you are cleaning out your closet, this means deciding which pile each thing belongs in. But when it comes to the contents of your mind, the choice is where you […]

Life From Your Own View

Life, as we have heard, is how we make it. If we took time reflecting on this statement we might discover it is actually true. People often say life is not fair, actually that’s true. Life doesn’t choose who will be rich or poor, who will be successful or not. Who does then? Actually it’s […]

Krishna means the highest pleasure

Krishna—this sound is transcendental. Krishna means the highest pleasure. All of us, every living being, seeks pleasure. But we do not know how to seek pleasure perfectly. With a materialistic concept of life, we are frustrated at every step in satisfying our pleasure because we have no information regarding the real level on which to […]

Important to remember…

Here is a 7-poniter list which everyone has to remember. Never think or speak negatively about yourself. Meditate on your God-given strengths and learn to encourage yourself, for much of the time nobody else will. Don’t compare yourself to anybody else.  So don’t settle for being a copy. Focus on your potential, not on your […]

Recognize patterns of behavior

Take an honest look at your own patterns of behavior. Perhaps you’re the one who starts some of the arguments, or you are a willing participant once they get going. This type of reflective wisdom allows you to better choose what to say and what not to say; who to spend time with and who […]
