Never Discriminate – But Also Learn To Say No

We should never discriminate. We need to be fair and inclusive. When we respect another person’s individual freedom, likes and dislikes, we should also learn to protect our freedom. Be all-inclusive but also learn to say a firm no when your freedom is under threat.

Do not tolerate a person to be in the good books. Let the person be whatever the person wants to be. You should not discriminate a person for his/her likes. But at the same time when the person is entering into your personal space discourage it.

We cannot always like the food and drink and other habits of a person. We should not single out the person because he/she eats something that we do not eat.

When you draw walls and categorize people, know that you are attempting to divide the undividable.

All people and all living beings are part of the Supreme Truth. Our ignorance is causing the division. Today if a person does not have wealth, station in life, caste and power then people ignore the person.

Many a time a person is…

Kainkaryam – Complete Devotion to Vishnu – Perumal

The service can be of any form. It is for the devotee to decide in what way he/she wants to serve him.

Spiritual Response to External Problems

One who considers oneself to be beyond the body and the mind and believes that one’s true personality is a spiritual personality, the Atman – How would that person respond to external stimuli?
Such a person’s response would be that of indifference, not of the kind displayed by an ignoramus, but the indifference of a wise mind. This indifference is based on the belief that one is beyond the body and the mind and is unaffected by the external circumstances. It is with this poise and aplomb that the wise person chooses not to react to any external stimuli, either of attraction or of repulsion, either of love or of hatred, either of good or of evil.
With this equanimity, the wise person chooses to continue to focus on one’s true nature that is beyond name and form and ignores wrong perceptions of experiences based on ignorance.
There is no reaction, lamentation, or brooding over anything with this person. This makes this wise person wiser by the day and takes that person closer to self-r…

Why Pandu was born ashen – weak and pale in the Mahabharata?

Pandu, the father of Pandavas, was weak, pale and ashen. He was the son of Sage Vyasa and Ambalika, the widow of Vichtravirya. Here is the reason as to why Pandu was born weak and pale.

Without fathering a child, Vichitravirya, the son of Queen Satyavati died. The Kuru lineage was in danger of going extinct.

Queen Satyavati asked Bhishma to break is vow and save the Kuru dynasty. But he was not ready to break the vow.

Desperate to save the Kuru dynasty, Satyavati thought of her first son, Krishna Dwaipayana (Sage Vyasa).

He was immediately summoned.


As per law of niyoga, any children that are born of a woman will belong to the husband. Thus if the widows of Vichtravirya, Ambika and Ambalika, were to have children they would belong to the lineage of Vichtravirya.

Based on this law Queen Satyavati asked Sage Vyasa to have children in Ambika and Ambalika. Vyasa was an ascetic not used to the ways of the society. His hair was dry and matted. His skin was coarse and rough.

When Vyasa a…

Story Sri Ramanujacharya - A Hungry Man – His Children and Srirangam Ranganatha

During the days of Sri Ramanujacharya in Srirangam Ranganatha Swamy Temple, there was a poor hungry man. Like Kuchela he had many children.

This simple man used to go out for alms. Sometimes he would get plenty for all the family to eat and on some occasions he would get very little and the children only will be fed. The parents would remain without eating.

He had very great faith in Srirangam Ranganatha and would worship him daily, and used to visit Sri Ramanujacharya’s mutt to have his darshan and remain contented.

It is however difficult to expect his many children to have the same attitude. They remained a crowd of hungry children. The children used to visit the temple during puja time and whatever prasadam (temple food) was given, they used to grab them. When these children came, it was a problem for the man distributing the prasadam. The children used to trouble him much. It was so annoying that the temple servants, one day reported the matter to Ramanujacharya.

Swami Vivekananda on Uniqueness of Vedanta

This Vedanta philosophy has certain peculiarities. In the first place, it is perfectly impersonal; it does not owe its origin to any person or prophet: it does not build itself around one man as a centre. Yet it has nothing to say against philosophies, which do build themselves around certain persons.

In later days in India, other philosophies and systems arose, built around certain persons — such as Buddhism, or many of our present sects. _ ey each have a certain leader to whom they owe allegiance, just as the Christians and Mohammedans have. But the Vedanta philosophy stands at the background of all these various sects, and there is no fight and no antagonism between the Vedanta and any other system in the world.

One principle the Vedanta claims to be found in every religion in the world – that man is divine, that all this which we see around us is the outcome of that consciousness of the divine.

Everything that is strong, and good, and powerful in human nature is the outcome of th…

Detachment is the key to negating the illusory events of the universe

We want to be happy but our sorrows do not let us be so. We want to love people but our love is constantly clouded by unremitting hatred. We want to go ahead on our path to achieve greatness but the pulls of our body and mind do not let us do things in peace. We are constantly tossed and turned by the pulls of dualities. These twin-troubles come from our body, mind, and the environment. At their root lies our inherent nature to see things in pairs of opposites – dual nature.

The only solution to overcome this is to constantly reminding oneself of the ultimate reality or negating the apparent permanence of the evanescent experiences of dual nature.


Detachment is the key to negating the illusory events of the universe. This detachment has to be at the levels of the body, mind, and body-mind interactions with the environment.
Why is it so important to transcend dualities?
Whatever we may attain in the life of sense-experience, there would always be something better yet to be attained. T…
