Lord Vishnu goes into sleep on the Ashada Shudha Ekadasi (July – August). He remains in deep slumber during the period and this is known as the Chaturmasa period. He wakes up on the Kartik Shukla Ekadasi and this day is observed as Dev Uthani Ekadasi.

Swami Parthasarathy Teachings

It is not the world that distresses you but how you relate to it.
There was no creation. The world is a projection of your own mind. Good mind, good world, Bad mind, bad world. No mind, No world.
The law of life is that the mind should be at rest while the body engages in action.

It is a social crime to expect others to behave in the pattern of your likes and dislikes.

Why do you have to compare yourself to others? Just play your life's role without a sense of superiority or inferiority.

Swami Parthasarathya former business man who became a corporate guru, propagating a modern interpretation of Vedanta
