How to Move On (For Real)

Have You Really Moved On? Let’s face it: there are many parts of our past which we are not “okay” with, which we wish hadn't happened, which we prefer not to think about. These parts are better buried somewhere deep in our minds (so we think). Unfortunately, these are the parts of our past that… Continue reading How to Move On (For Real)

What is dharma? And how can it be different for different people?

I encounter this question often. "What is dharma?" The immediately next question people ask, is, "How can dharma change from one person to another? And from one situation to another?"

Walking Around Kathmandu

I was on a market street somewhere between Thamel and Basantpur, walking towards the Durbar Square in Basantpur, which I was told by the people who gave me directions was at a walking distance, though I was finding the rightness of the expression “walking distance” very questionable with every kilometre I walked.

Just like we need someone to teach us History, Geography, Science, Maths etc, we need someone to… Continue reading Why do we need a Guru?

Satori at Pashupatinath

“So what’s the story behind the temple ?”, I ask my friend, munching a typical Nepali breakfast of poori, jalebi and tarkari outside the Pashupatinath temple in Kathmandu. My friend is a Nepali who left his country in the year 1999 before the political drama had begun to unfold in Nepal. Twelve years later, his spiritual wanderings see him outside… Continue reading Satori at Pashupatinath

Kailash, the Ultimate Fulfillment

An eternal revelation, a mystery, a conscious fire, a happening, an immeasurable energy, an ocean of mysticism, a congregation of enlightened beings, a place beyond space and time – and, a completion of lifetimes. Kailash, the abode of Shiva. The place where the entire cosmos is centered, as explained by Swamiji (Swami Paramahamsa Nithyananda). The… Continue reading Kailash, the Ultimate Fulfillment
