Rama goes after the deer to capture it. The demon is killed by Sri Ram but before dying he cries out loud in the voice of Rama – Ha Sita! Ha Lakshman! Lakshman and Sita hear the cry. Lakshman is not moved as he knows about the powers of Rama. He is sure that no rakshasa or human or deva could harm his brother. But Mata Sita was moved by the cry she heard. She started crying and shouting at Lakshman. Her behavior was like that of country-bred women who is ignorant of good manners. She accuses Lakshman of having no love for Sri Ram.

Thoughts on Ganesh Chaturthi by Hindu Blog

Forget all rituals and symbolisms associated with Ganesh Chaturthi. What is Ganesha to us? When we stand with our eyes closed before Ganpati – He is the only hope, the only way to happiness, the only way to success, only way to bliss and only way to Moksha and self-realization. The unimaginable, the indefinable, Supreme Truth takes a form and arrives at the home of his devotees. His arrival brings positive optimism. He instills confidence in us to face daily challenges. He makes us realize that all that was here, is here and will be here is Him. Not even a single atom moves without his knowledge. Those who want worldly success He blesses them with that. Those who want self-realization; He removes all obstacles and guides them in the path of Moksha. It is for us to decide what we want eternal bliss or perishable joy. With this annual arrival, Ganesha breaks the man-made distance between man and God. He arrives to teach us equality and peaceful coexistence and above all c

Why We Need To Be Rooted?

Thoughts by Swami Nityasthananda It is very essential for us to be firmly rooted in our higher ideal. A tree firmly rooted in the ground will not be toppled by a storm. If we are not firmly rooted, we will be overwhelmed by the tempest of various influences, adversities, and temptations; and our life will become rudderless. The child’s life is rooted in the mother. As one grows one has to find new grounds for one’s roots, and the parents must help one in this regard. A seedling is first reared in a pot and then it is transplanted on the ground. There it grows by itself into a huge tree. Swami Nityasthananda of Ramakrishna Mission Thoughts by Swami Adbhutananda Becoming a devotee is not a joke. One cannot become a bhakta just by uttering a few devotional words or shedding a few tears. Only one in whom genuine devotion has blossomed is a true bhakta. When one attains such devotion, one becomes God-like; no hatred, jealousy, or egotism can remain in such a person. What I see in
