Let us become nobler

Sanskrit word 'Arya' or 'Aryam' stands for nobility. Let us implore everyone to become noble, the Arya or Aryam. Christians, Muslims, Hindus or Jews, communists or capitalists, rich or poor, clever or dumb, weak, meek or bully. Uncomfortable perhaps are they with other, threatening peace. Ray of hope for the world is ‘include-all’ ideas of ancient Indian wisdom popularly known as Hinduism. Only they knew how to celebrate individuality of each person. Aryas respect ideas of others, respect way of worship of others, help others and become a noble citizen of this wide and varied world. Idea behind this blog is to bring out those ideas and help each of us become better than what we are. 'N' in the 'Aryan', by the way, was a mistake made by colonial 'experts' who wanted to underplay and undermine the culture and religion of those who they clandestinely enslaved.

"Yoga Pathway to the divine", a nice book by Paramahansa Prajnananda

Just completed reading second book by the same author. It is clear, that it is written by a person from own personal experiences and not just a 'routine presentation or a discourse by uninitiated' This difference has made book simpler and accurate guide. Obviously more like a text book for his deciples yet equally useful to regular readers. It was published a few years ago on 93rd birthday of his guru, Paramahansa Hariharanand. We all have 'political' mind- A nice way to highlight need for 'spiritual' mind if any worthwhile progress is to be made in serious persuit of Kriya Yoga.

A soccer-ball gets kicked as long as it is inflated. Not otherwise. We are inflated by ego. No one would kick us if we are not inflated.
