Ascribe Brahma-hood to All
The life of all other [beings] is for material enjoyment, but human life is for higher pursuits, for something subtle, something higher, something more elevated. There are certain propensities which are common both for human beings and animals, but the old idea of logicians that the human is a rational [animal] is not supported by us. We say the human is not a rational animal. If we say the human is a rational animal, then [...]

How can I find the time and focus to sit in meditation? Part One

Easier said than done, and this lack of ‘cooperation’ from your self is part of the reason we need meditation. The good [...]
How can I find the time and focus to sit in meditation? Part Two: Yogic Exercise
While I teach meditation to help people find mental peace and spiritual fulfilment, meditators shouldn’t forget about physical health. In the last blog I talked of how food is essential for spiritual progress. Certain foods, I noted, encourage mental harmony, as well as giving us physical health. Here I’ll talk of how the right exercise can help our “innercise.” Exercise is working with our body to achieve a good level of health.  Our “innercise” is [...]
Why do I want to learn to meditate?
“Why do you want to learn meditation?” I often ask this of my students, before teaching them a formal meditation practice, which includes their personal mantra. And over the years I’ve gotten quite a variety of responses. I find almost any reason is good. Well, almost every reason.

Meditation: Be all You Can Be
A few years ago I wanted to buy one domain name. I knew with this domain, anyone who wanted to feel good, even perhaps anyone who wanted anything at all, would visit the website. Of course the domain name was taken already. Wonder what it was? Amazon? Nah. Google? No way. E-Bay. Hardly. The domain name I was looking for was: After all, why do we do anything, and everything? Because there’s something for me, [...]
