RIGHT ATTITUDE & RIGHT REASONING

In our understanding of the world we stumble across a strange thing related to the Self which perplexes us to no small degree and it is the insistence on evidences or result of evidences called "proofs" before a thing is "accepted " as a fact to our limited knowledge .

If one carefully examines this phenomenal attitude of human beings we find that it stands in the way of the human being actualizing the purportedly element of the divine through transcendence by the faculty of…

AN ASSAY INTO VIOLENCE

We are inclined  to call certain acts as violent  and others as peaceful . And then make judgements based on an incomplete understanding or partial and defective knowledge .

Nobody does anything in the Past nor lives in the past or enjoys the past or nobody acts in the Future or enjoys in the future , for these are only conjectures and not realities - everything takes place in the…

KRAMA - A SUTRA FROM ASHTANGA YOGA - # 2

What is the use of this Sutra , or why one should even try to understand this Sutra is a pertinent question here . Its importance is mainly in Knowledge meditation wherein we come to ''Know'' where we are located at a particular time in thought . An attempt is made to explain how it works .

WHO AM I ?

SUPERIMPOSITION:

In most cases we use the following expression to define ourselves , “I am fair” or “I am tall’’ or “I am short’’ or ‘’I am brown’’ . Fairness and  Darkness or Tallness

And shortness are not qualities of the soul . These attributes and assessments which are in a person whereby he has defined himself are qualities of the body which are superimposed on the soul and the feelings of having continuity and immortality (in the sense where we hear of people dying…
