Are you watching closely?

This is a famous line in one of my favourite movie ‘The Prestige’ by Christopher Nolan. The magician performs tricks, purposely distracts us lest we ‘find out too soon!’ but at the same time sprinkles out ample hints for those who watch closely. The world is a stage with amazing magic tricks performed on us! Master… Continue reading Are you watching closely?

The suggestion game

“The senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch are all separate suggestions of God. I can disconnect them one by one. I used to do that as a boy. I came to realize that this is all God’s movie: true not only to the senses of sight and sound as movies are, but also to the… Continue reading The suggestion game

That’s all I will say

Compilations from my Facebook posts inspired by the following conversation with Yogananda: “Master,” I said, “have I been your disciple for thousands of years?” The very thought that it could take so long to find God appalled me. “It has been a long time,” he replied; “that’s all I will say.” [3d-flip-book mode=”fullscreen” urlparam=”fb3d-page” id=”359″ title=”false”] Pdf… Continue reading That’s all I will say

Banat, banat, ban jai

One of Lahiri Mahasaya’s favorite remarks, given as encouragement for his students’ perseverance. A free translation is: “Striving, striving, one day behold! the Divine Goal!” One thing that I discovered during my high school days was, if you need to be good at something, you need to practice regularly chiseling it with refinement and giving… Continue reading Banat, banat, ban jai

Inner stellar journey

I like Christopher Nolan’s movie and at many places I find hidden a treasure of spiritual truths. This one is on the Interstellar movie. The movie is available on iTunes or Netflix. For many people, more than the interstellar journey, the inner journey may be startling. It could be intimately intimidating. How does one take a step? From… Continue reading Inner stellar journey
