"Now, should one fulfil the desires or eliminate them? The first principle is that one should fulfil one's desires. The second law is that desire cannot be satisfied. Therefore, the third principle is that one must practise both. If possible, one should aim for fulfilment of desires and for desireless-ness at the same time."
by Paramahamsa Satyananda
Desires are a necessary part of life because to desire is to recognise life. It is through desires that you can get to know your personality and your situation in life. There are some people who cannot desire and there are others who desire all day long.
If you analyse this properly, you will come to know that desire is an innocent force in the…Continue

"Ultimately, poetry is the pouring of the divine consciousness through the pen of the master poet." - Bijay Raut, The Heart of The Mind
Available at http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/bijayraut
"The Heart of the Mind" immediately stands out as a poet's quest to epitomize progressive human experiences - beginning from love, to celebrations and ultimately culminating into surrender - that are sublimely expressed in a timeless collection of 21 poems. Let the words stir your deepest emotions and you will find yourself, unfailingly each time, amidst your own journeys of past, present and future - taken, being taken and to be taken towards personal fulfillment. The poems beautifully express soft human side: love and yearning; elements of nature symbolizing human aspirations: moon and river; and everyday struggles of life:…Continue

Fortune is not found by
the diggers of gold or by those
who scavenge the marketplace
Fortune is not theirs who dive
into oceans to find what those
before them could afford to lose
In search of fortune, the pittance
that has enslaved too many lives
Bodies bent in search of fortune
Minds filled with madness of fortune
Souls enslaved in search of fortune
Lifetimes gone by in pursuit of fortune
It is in giving away what the slaves
of fortune value, One becomes fortunate
Fortunate are those who are blessed with giving
Fortunate are those who have lost need to hoard

The Sanskrit word Dharma, chö (chos) in Tibetan, means to hold or to uphold. What is upheld or maintained? The elimination of suffering and the attainment of happiness. Dharma does this not only for us, but for all beings.
The sufferings we experience are of two types:…Continue

Your mind can be in five different states. It can be inert. That means it is not activated at all -- it is in a rudimentary state. If you energize an inert mind, the mind becomes active but scattered. If you energize it further, it is no longer scattered, but oscillating. If you energize it even further, it becomes one-pointed. If you energize it still further, it will become conscious. If your mind is conscious, it is magic. It is a miracle; it is the bridge to the beyond.
Inert minds are not a problem. Someone who is very simple-minded and whose intellect is still not effervescent has no trouble. He eats well, he sleeps well. It is only people who think that cannot sleep. Simple-minded people perform all the activities of the body far better than the so-called intellectual…Continue
Believe it or not (and if you do, please help me believe it too), but I just published an album. It's a 4-song EP entitled « The Abode Of The Blessed » that I recorded in an overnight session last weekend and produced this past week.
But first things first. Before I go into more details about the music, here's the abridged version of what happened…Continue

(« Athletics tracks finish line by Petey21)
The eighth and final movement of « Octoccata » is entitled « Multilethalead » and starts on a ostinato-based progression that slowly morphs into a relentless string of offbeat melodies harmonized by an increasing number of voices, building up to a climactic reprise of the « Lethal Lead » theme introduced in the fourth movement.
The « Multi » part of the section's title comes from the markers identifying some of its passages, namely « Trilead, » « Quadlead, » and « Pentapercular, » that latter tag signaling the moment when the percussions forego their timekeeping role in order to join the other instruments in the joyous fun of underpinning the melody.
That being said, let me…Continue
