Conversations With Daaji

Kanha Shanti Vanam Wednesday, 6 September 2017 This morning Daaji left early to conduct a Heartfulness workshop for IAS officers, returning just after 9 a.m. During breakfast he had a discussion with a few abhyasis about various recent activities of Heartfulness and Brighter Minds, and then the topic moved to evolution and consciousness. Creation, human evolution and consciousness Q: Saheb, if we look at evolution in the Darwinian sense, first we have the origins of matter, then the oceans and then life emerged out...

Golden Hearts

5 September 2017 A few days ago I went on a short visit to Ramoji Film City on the Vijayawada Road near Hyderabad to check on my ability to travel and to finalise the media studio for some upcoming interviews. Little did I know that it would turn out to be an encounter with a very rare family and its respected patriarch, Shri Cherukuri Ramoji Rao. Beforehand, I had no idea of the work of this humble human being who, to his...

HEARTICULTURE: when the heart leads

Imagine a world where there is harmony and peace, where we are all able to grow and evolve, and where children thrive because the adults who care for them are filled with love, joy and hope. Is it only an utopian vision, or is it possible? What is needed from us to realize this vision? The answer can be encapsulated in one word, Hearticulture.   Hearticulture is exactly what it says – a culture based on the heart. The word ‘culture’ means...

Spread the Message of Love

Message on the Occasion of the 90th Birth Anniversary of Pujya Shri Chariji Maharaj, 24 July 2017, Kanha Shantivanam   We regularly witness how flocks of birds feed, move and journey together, and how those of the same kind assemble together. Our assembly is likewise. We aspire to soar majestically towards the Unknown with wings outstretched. In the language of Yoga, the cycle of samsara culminates in the hansa or the transcendent swan state: the swan that separates milk from water! Yet this discrimination...

Transformation Through Experiences

Dear friends, I remember the first time I understood the real significance of experience. I was still in college at the time. Those days, I would meditate every single day. My parents would notice me sitting down with closed eyes every morning. They never disturbed me; nor did they ask me what I was doing. One fine day I offered to take my father to a Heartfulness Trainer who resided near our home. He was happy to try it. When he came...

Creating mental well-being for one and all

Dear friends, Our human system has a very wonderful characteristic when it comes to observing and looking after our health – when nothing is wrong, we remain carefree and oblivious to our health, as our heart does not give us any signals. But when something is wrong it definitely lets us know – as long as we listen to it! For example, if our breathing is healthy and normal, we are not even aware that we are breathing, but if we have...

OFFERING PRASAD – an offering of love

Dear friends, There is stillness in the atmosphere after a group meditation, and at the same time a sense of expectancy as a young bride and groom stand facing each other on their special day. It is a joyous occasion. First they garland each other with rose garlands, and then gently and lovingly place charged rings on each other’s fingers. Then they each are given a small piece of a special sweet to place in each other’s mouth. This is no...

Yama: the five vows of the seeker

Spirituality is not a path for the faint hearted. Swami Vivekananda has said, “I need lions and not sheep.” Have you wondered why the great Master has spoken so? It is because every single moment we are working on our self. Every moment of our existence we are refining our lifestyle to ensure the blossoming of our consciousness. In a previous article, I touched upon the journey that starts with thinking, and that evolves into feeling. This change gives the wisdom...
