A Woman of Substance


You were Shiva’s Shakti.
You were Vishnu’s Lakshmi. 
You were Rama’s Sita. 
You were Krishna’s Radha. 

You have taken many Avatars. 
You have played many roles. 

When needed you became Durga. 
When needed you became Chandi. 
When needed you became Kali. 

You also helped the God’s to destroy the evil. 

How many Avatars you have? 

You are a mother. You are a sister. 
You are a wife. You are a friend. 
You are many more in just one. 

Past times are past times. 
You are nothing less in the modern times. 

You take care of the home - a sweet home. 
You take care of the kids. 
You take care of the office work. 
You maintain harmony between the home and the office.

You are a woman and yet you have achieved the highest. 

You excelled in art. You excelled in science. 
You excelled in technology. You excelled in politics. 
And you also excelled in spirituality. 

A man is incomplete without a woman. 
A man is half without a woman. 

You are not a robot and not a machine. 
Because, you have the highest emotional quotient. 

How do you do all this? Amazing !! 

You are truly an Ardhanarishvara
And you are a woman of substance. 

To all women, all over the world. 
A Happy International Women’s Day !!

Emotional Quotient and Spiritual Quotient

Let us talk of the whole structure of our being. At the periphery of the being are our thoughts. This layer is of positive thoughts and negative thoughts. This is the mind of the being. This is an intellectual layer of the being. This layer can be purified through mindfulness and awareness. This layer can be purified through the process of Dhyana or meditation. This layer is called the Intellectual Quotient (IQ) of the being.
There is a layer below the intellectual layer. A layer below this is called the emotional layer. This is the heart of the being. This layer has negative emotions and positive emotions. And this layer can also be purified through mindfulness and awareness. The energy at this layer can be purified through the process of Dhyana or meditation. This layer is called the Emotional Quotient (EQ) of the being.
Emotions, thoughts, and actions are not three different things. They are three different forms of the same energy. The emotions are moving in the heart. The though…

Jai Jai Ganesha !!

Ganesha does not mean only the wall portrait of Ganesha. Ganesha does not mean only the idol of Ganesha. But Ganesha means much more and beyond. Shiva and Parvati do not mean only the wall portraits of Shiva and Parvati. Shiva and Parvati do not mean only the idols of Shiva and Parvati. They mean much more and beyond. There has to be a far deeper meaning to these mythological stories. Let us explore and uncover the myth hidden in these stories.
There are four dimensions to the existence. The first two dimensions are existence and non-existence. Matter is existing and non-matter is non-existing. We can perceive matter but we can not perceive the non-matter. We can perceive the body but we can not perceive the soul. The first two dimensions of the perceivable matter are Physics and Metaphysics. We can see the physical matter but we can not see the metaphysical matter. We can touch and feel the physical matter. But we can not perceive the subatomic and metaphysical world of matter exactl…

Happy Guru Nanak Jayanti !!

Today is the day of the “Guru”. Guru Nanak Dev was the founder of the Sikh faith. There is a legend behind his becoming a great Guru. He was once working for a merchant. And while counting numbers he made a small mistake. I strongly feel that such mistake should happen in everybody’s life. He was counting numbers. He was supposed to count up to twelve (12) and by mistake he counted up to thirteen (13). The moment he counted this number thirteen there was a sudden flash of a thunder in his whole being. It was a miraculous moment of his life. In fact divinity descended in him in that very moment. And at the same time, in that very moment, he ascended to divinity. In that very moment everything in his life has changed forever. 
In the Eastern tradition the word “Tera” means the “Supreme”. It simply means “Yours” and not “Mine”. The word “Tera” means everything is yours (that of God) and nothing is mine. Now, the world of me and mine has come to an end for the first time. Unless ‘my’ worl…
