Blissful Blossoms

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

Enough is enough!

H.H. the Dalai Lama in his hands the Panchen Lama

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…

Humanity

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…

Answers & Beyond

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…

“An Open Letter to the President”

“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…

Leap

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…

My favorite place to stand

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…

NASA's earth day poster

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…

in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,

I go and lie down where the wood drake…

Allegory of the Long Spoons

« 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…

Living Bond

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…

Nexus

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…

Conveyed by Rhymes

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

against which…
