Happiness quotient

Human beings can distinguish between good and bad because of their consciousness, and when in trouble they can find a way out. No one likes to live in misery and suffering, far less human beings, whose consciousness can find means of relief. Shrii Shrii Anandamurti writes.

The many classes in the middle

India does not have a middle class in the traditional sense. What it does have is a highly heterogeneous consuming class, whose members are bound only by their disposable incomes and an aspiration to consume. Rama Bijapurkar writes.

Be good, do good

Vedas teach man to lead practically a pure and pious life full of philanthropy and fellow feeling, benefaction and benevolence. This is the only way to salvation. “Be good and do good” is the gist of Vedic philosophy. The doctrine of “be good, do good” is based on the “doctrine of truth.” LR Sabharwal writes.

A life full of rituals

Rituals are not and can’t be redundant. They are an essential part of one’s life. In fact, for most of us, rituals are a way of life, a means to sustain ourselves — in good as well as bad times. PP Wangchuk writes.

A good life wish

Life never ceases to alternately surprise and distress us. There are times in life when you think the worst is over. At that precise moment, the invisible magician pulls another rabbit out of his hat, reminding you that it’s just the way the karma cookie crumbles. Shalini Rai writes.

Lead, kindly light

Deepawali, which literally means a row of lights, significantly falls on 'amavasya' - that is the darkest night of the 'kirshan paksha'of the Kartik month.

A bond of love

Bhaiya Dooj is a unique concept in Hindu terminology to cover the usual affinity of man vs woman as created by God himself, supposed to bring one near the other. It is on this day that brother-sister affinity is exhibited in its quantum and quality of love in its purest form. RL Pathak writes.

Don’t occupy, include

The Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protest in New York and its various manifestations across the globe have barely made an impact in India or Asia. Rashesh Shah writes.

Control the excesses

Awave of protests against the excess of capitalism has started in the US and has subsequently spread to many other nations and raised a concern in India as well. NR Bhanumurthy writes.

Break the cocoon

The condition of almost every human being in the world today is such that he/she has feelings of insecurity and is scared and cocooned.

One world, one God

A 'sapling' planted and nourished by 'God himself' in 1936 has now grown into a beautiful tree with its branches spread across the globe. That was the message put out by the Brahma Kumaris to celebrate its Platinum Jubilee, recently. PP Wangchuk reports.

Problems are unreal

In life, something that stops or bothers you is a problem. Everyone has similar problems like those of relationship, job/finance, health, and lastly big worries about the country. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar reports

The easy way to God

Gautam Buddha said that the single factor responsible for bringing us to earth repeatedly is "attachment;" if and when attachment is transcended one achieves liberation.
