Salt Doll - A Poem

Salt Doll

In search of truth

did I go back and forth


Wandered through Mountains

bathed in rivers sacred, with the pious


Whichever way the blind pointed

with hope and zest me travelled


Every which way I smelled the…

From Anger to Compassion: The Power of Yoga

by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev

Meditation - Food for the Soul

By Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Meditation is the journey from movement to stillness, from sound to silence. The need is present in you to meditate because it is your natural tendency to look for undiminished joy and love that doesn’t distort or turn negative.


Is meditation alien to us? That’s…

How to Stop Absorbing Other People’s Negative Emotions

I emphasize the importance of learning how to stay centered in a stressful, highly emotionally charged world. Since emotions such as fear, anger, and frustration are energies, you can potentially “catch” them from people without realizing it. If you tend to be an emotional sponge, it’s vital to…

Happy New Year - A Poem by Bijay Raut

Happy New Year

Like the dew drops in the early morning grass,

Fresh and clear as pearls in the rays of sunshine,

Like the blossoming of magnolia in the early spring,

Gracefully clad in white as a beautiful bride,

Like the eastern sky in the early dawn,

Magnificently bright with the glow of the rising Sun,

Like the spark on her face…

The Evening Romance – A Poem by Bijay Raut


When the day seeks to rest,

It pleads the Sun to set,

When the workers wipe the sweaty forehead,

The cool air breezes from the distant ahead,

When the crops sink to soak the soil,

When the babies sing the evening chirps,

The mother birds return to their nests,

When the lovers long for the solitude,

The dusk invites with its twilight fade,

When my heart…

The Road Not Taken - A Poem by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as…

Life Is A Wheel, Return To Its Center

From the mysteries of time comes the conundrum of life. Do we journey through life or does life journey through us? Or both. Are you the driver or the hitchhiker? Or both. Are you the traveller or the witness? Or both. Are you on the stage or in the audience? Or both. Do YOU move or are you moved? Or neither!

Such questions have plagued the intellects of philosophers and mystics for centuries. Today, few of us have little time for… Continue
