Swami Vivekananda

If India were to have patron saints, then perhaps we might say that Swami Vivekananda is the patron saint – or guru – of Inter-religious encounter, or perhaps, in a more modern sense, an advocate for toleration and harmony among the world’s religions. Swami Vivekananda travelled to the Americas and participated in the inaugural Parliament of the World’s Religions in Chicago in 1893. We bring you excerpts from his speech on this occasion (in 2016) of the Birthday of Swami Vivekananda. (Vivekananda Jayanti)

The New Year

The New Year is an event that happens when a culture celebrates the end of one year and the beginning of the next year. Cultures that measure yearly calendars all have New Year celebrations. On January 1, 1600 Scotland, was the first country to adopt January 1 as the first day of the New Year. Now, many countries celebrate the New Year on that day. The Panchang, the Vedic Astrology calendar, uses a different reckoning to the Gregorian Calendar.

Conversations with the Master: First Meditation – Closeness of the Creator

If you want God, if you want the Creator, if you want direct experience of the Source, then you have to turn to God with Love for God who is ALL LOVE. In this book, the Master (Creator of the ALL, The Source, God, Jesus, Buddha, Rama, Mary, Lakshmi, Holy Ghost – whatever name and form you are comfortable with) tells how to experience this love directly. There is no medium, no book, no ritual, no candle, no injunction, no restriction: you turn to God directly, within. He is there, he is always there, he is always there with Love, Love, Love. He is closer to you than the eyelid is to the eye. Try it for yourself. And do you know the Agony of The Source? So few, so very few, turn to God to see what love is there for them.

Astrologers with Bad News and the Avatar of the Age

Once again, you write seeking answers, never seeking within for the answers. You are perturbed by the bad news bearers – those prophets of gloom and doom, disaster and destruction, punishment and apocalypse. We’ll take a look at what the bad news bearers tell and whether or not we should all abandon hope, run and hide in holes under the ground, just like the nuclear shelters in the backyards of the 1950’s! Do we really need to do this? Or do we take a hint from the meanderings of a certain President and every now and then, point – and with a look of exultation and mad glee on your face, yell Fake News!!!? Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba has a lot to say about this day and age.

Conversations with the Master: Subtle Energies

Some might expect that the question of subtle energies is about acquisition and mastery of siddhi energies leading to materialisation, bilocation, walking on water (yes, this can be done!) and so forth. Others recognise subtle energies as energies that surround us and penetrate within such as mass movements, chaotic nodes or thought-forms that seize our consciousness, our minds, even our feelings. These too, exist. Here, the Master is speaking of subtle energies that we have dragged around embedded in our souls lifetime and lifetime again. They are useless, they do not serve us, they tie us to this physical domain, where we do not belong. We belong – in Love – beside The Master, the Creator of the ALL who is Love, Love, Love.

2017 September Equinox

There are two equinoxes every year – in September and March – when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night is nearly equal. Seasons are opposite on either side of the Equator, so the equinox in September is also known as the autumnal (fall) equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, and is considered the first day of fall. In the Southern Hemisphere, it is known as the vernal (spring) equinox and marks the first day of spring.

Conversations with the Master: Inner Voice

The inner voice of the Divine is present in everyone. EVERYONE. It is crowded out by desires, strong emotions, reactions, attachments, must-haves and the fears of modern men and women: fear of missing out. The turn towards the loving Divinity cures all these ills for modern humanity. The turn towards loving divinity and its soft voice brings in its wake the solving of problems and issues, doubts and hesitations. Yet, the turn towards loving Divinity requires confidence, strength and courage to endure and persevere. The Creator is all Love, and this world is shining with HIS LOVE. Love is the benefit when we turn to listen to the inner voice within …
