A common space for harmonic peacemakers
Japa, Japa, Japa,... Let the wheel of the name of the God go around in the midst of all activities. All the burning of the heart will be soothed. Don't you know how many sinners have become pure and free and divine by taking refuge in the name of God

Another deep, deep heartache. George Floyd, an unarmed innocent black man, is dead, killed by a white police officer whose duty is to “serve and protect.” Racism and bigotry in America fueled by the current administration’s constant promotion of White…Continue

What is happening in the US today, and in many other parts of the world, is pathetic, painful and disgusting. The inability of civilized human beings to get along in this modern age is shameful. The burden for this lies heavily on the White race and, to a lesser degree on the people of color.
As long as the Whites refuse to acknowledge and atone for the historic plunder and pillage of the rest of the world the wounds will fester. The foundation for the affluence today is built on the…Continue
Question: I feel mind is like a monkey which wavers, making concentration difficult during prayers or chanting. How do I overcome this?
Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji:
The elephant cannot keep its trunk stationary. It keeps swaying it always. In order to arrest its movement, the mahout gives it a huge chain to hold on to. Similarly, in order for the mind to concentrate, we have it focus on the divine Name and Form of the Lord. That is the basic…Continue

And people stayed at home
And read books

“An Open Letter to the President”
From Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee:
Dear Fucking Lunatic,
At your recent press conference – more a word salad that had a stroke and fell down stairs, you were CLEARLY so out of your depth you needed scuba gear. Within minutes of going off air your minions were backpedaling faster than…
I am posting this simple article because its the very clearest I've seen on this subject that affects us all.

This is amazing!
Hear and be amazed at the unique nature of the world.
I wish you can enjoy it....
tell me i did not dive in way too deep
and that i will find the relief i seek
when bells toll the time to jump off the peak
say that there will be faith to take the leap
although i've walked the path of oracles
and seen you've kept the oath you'd said you'd keep
when the fruits will be close enough to reap
will i really believe in miracles
did your plan really include that last turn
or did i miss a lesson on the road
will there some day…

Have I lived enough?
Have I loved enough?
Have I considered Right Action enough, have I come to any conclusion?
Have I experienced happiness with sufficient gratitude?
Have I endured loneliness with grace?
I say this, or perhaps I'm just thinking it.
Actually I probably think too much.
Then I step…Continue

NASA’s earth day poster
Mary Catherine Bateson writes: Lynn [Margulis] submitted her paper to 15 different journals in 1966 before it was published, by the Journal of Theoretical Biology. It was turned down for going against the prevailing assumption, which came out of Darwin’s writings, that evolution depends on conflict and…Continue

“The Peace of Wild Things”
by Wendell Berry
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake…

« The allegory of the long spoons is a parable that shows the difference between heaven and hell by means of people forced to eat with long spoons. »
« In each location, the inhabitants are given access to food, but the utensils are too unwieldy to serve oneself with. In hell, the people cannot cooperate, and consequently starve. In heaven, the diners feed one another across the table and are sated. »
« Given the same level playing field one group of…Continue

dare i declare that we'll always be one
that in your soul breathes an echo of mine
that our paths will fusion down the line
that this living bond cannot come undone
dare i reveal how we have been misled
by values that want us to be apart
told only a fool could follow their heart
by demons of greed, reason, and hatred
could you forgive me for being doubtful
of accepting the fate of a prophet
and having been of you so…

how many souls lay blinded by that creed
stuck on a rock that's lost in the vastness
fatherless child of mother randomness
the underlying view that fosters greed
satisfied by the laws of mechanics
kindergarten of logic and reason
unfit for the tests of intuition
barred from the master class in holistics
unprepared to see past material
as if fearing fatal delirium
through knowledge of concerns spiritual
yet truth is no stranger to…Continue

I thought you may like this 4minute light show from Iran...
I hope you enjoy it.
i can recall the day when the world fell
and i could only watch in disbelief
as people blamed each other for their grief
before hiding back each inside their shell
from there we edged ever closer to hell
dying nature, fires, foul climes above
divided souls all longing for some love
while minds dreaded for them would toll the bell
and now a plague warns us with its dark chimes
to see we're tied, us threads of the same rope
