There Is Something Better Than Satyamev Jayate on Indian Television – Upanishad Ganga

The title of Amir Khan’s Satyamev Jayate television program is from Mundaka Upanishad. Satyamev Jayate is good but it is nowhere near Upanishad Ganga (aired on every Sunday morning 10:00 AM on DD1). Satyamev Jayate is discussing problems that we are well aware of. Upanishad Ganga is presenting answers to universal problems, including those discussed in Satyamev Jayate, based on Upanishads and other ancient scriptures in India.

Practice meditation, and by and by your mind will be so calm and fixed that you will find it hard to keep away from meditation.
One cannot escape from the effect of one’s past karma. But if a person lives a prayerful life, he gets off with only the prick of a thorn in the leg where he was to suffer from a deep cut.
