Inner Voice

The old age pangs

We all reach a stage in life when we need help, love and kindness. Our parents, all their lives, have helped us, kissed our bruises, wiped our tears and made us what we are today.

No need to chase God

There is no better service to the innocent people than to dispel their ignorance and give them the right direction. Religious gurus must tell the people that God is eternal and permanent; they need not chase Him. Urvashi Goel writes.

The battle for peace

Peace prevails when there is understanding for each other’s rights and the obligation to respect and accept such rights that others should rightly be claiming ownership. PP Wangchuk writes.

Krishna, my Guru

I had the first experience of Krishna’s teachings when I read portions of the Bhagavad Gita at the ‘havan’ after my grandfather’s death. I chanted Sanskrit ‘sholakas’ followed by its Hindi translations for almost an hour but most of it was beyond my grasp.Vanita Srivastava writes.

Practising self-restraint

The celebration of Eid ul-Fitr culminates a month of fasting. It falls on the first day of Shawwal, the month which follows Ramzan in the Islamic calendar. It is the time to give charity to the needy, and celebrate with family and friends the completion of a month of blessings and joy.

Have the will to win

Life is not always smooth. If it gives you happiness, it also brings a lot of miseries. One needs mental strength to face them. A weak mind that is unable to withstand suffering invites only more miseries.

The burden of abuse

To be abusive is a kind of disease that 'catches' others fast. And abusive people keep their tongues wagging, unaware that it hurts them back. Most of us are hurt when we become victims of abuse; and most of us try to hit back. PP Wangchuk writes.

Tagore’s poetic spirituality

“Deliverance is not for me in renunciation. I feel the embrace of freedom in thousand bonds of delight.” This strikes the keynote of Tagore’s poetic spirituality. MN Kundu writes.

From problems to gains

A person as a child had the misfortune of being stricken with many serious diseases. He was fed up; he wanted no further suffering. He began to meditate about how this "impossible" goal was to be accomplished. Ajit Kumar Bishnoi writes.

Towards clarity of light

There are moments in our lives when we are at a loss of direction and hope. But there are also moments when we have a complete clarity of where we are headed and what we are meant to be. Shivani Ahuja reports.

Be a positive Netizen

Today we all are so dependent on the Internet that it is almost impossible to think of life without it. There are many similarities between humans and the Internet. Our brain is like computer terminal. What do we store in this computer? What do we download into our mind? Rajyogi Brahmakumar Nikunj writes.

Be fearless, always

Fear is our worst enemy. It keeps on taking toll of our peace of mind. Sometimes, it is based on just figments of our imagination. This happens when we tread immoral grounds and do not follow the path of truth.

The riches of laughter

The ability to laugh is a wonderful gift that we human beings are blessed with. It is said some animals too have this laughing ability, but we are not very sure.

Forgive to enlarge future

Forgiving is an art, not a belief. You need to forgive for yourself, for your development. When we don’t forgive others, we are punishing ourselves. Imagine when your hard words can make others cry, what effect they could be having inside you from where they are originating. Divya Kapoor writes.

Nature of spiritual laws

Spiritual laws tell us how we can find happiness and eventually attain self-realisation.
