Namah Te dear All,

i hope this message finds all my fellow seekers infinitely, incessantly and independently Joyous!

On Jan 12, 2018 i completed 10 years of serving Sanatana Dharma. On Jan 13, 2018 i commenced a 10 year plan of serving Sanatana Dharma — to build a Freedom Centre offering sincere seekers an immersive experience in leadership and liberation. The wind has been at my back…

This period plans are to search for a facility to share Sanatana Dharma in:
Cleveland or
Pittsburgh or
Washington or

Sanatana Dharma as a noun is our Infinite Nature. Sanatana Dharma as a verb is our unchanging responsibility. Our unchanging responsibility is to be our Infinite Nature.

Doing anything else, becoming anything else is being alive yet not living. Sound scary? A final walk together with Shri Tulasidas as He describes the lost, found in our E-Vichara

E-Vichara (August 6, 2018) — — Zombie Nation — Part 3

  • The most interesting subject/experience is Peace, all other subjects/experiences being most disinteresting — living for pleasure, possession and position will never complete us hence our perpetual distraction, irritation, exhaustion
  • The ignorant are alive yet not living — living in a random way without direction from a scripture/guide is the same as being a zombie
  • The indulgent are alive yet not living — believing one is the body naturally one’s strategy is to find the everlasting from the never-lasting which is being a zombie
  • The gossipy are alive yet not living — projecting one’s ignorance we only see and speak of weaknesses, forcing others to inflict the same on us, a state of being a zombie
  • The sinning are alive yet not living — deviating from one’s responsibilities one dismantles morality, a deplorable condition like being a zombie
  • Ravana was a zombie in all 14 ways yet Rama forgave his trespasses, Rama gave him Life — being an introvert is being Rama and being an extrovert is being Ravana, will you choose the path of the Living or the dead

Beyond the individual, family and community is society. The Happiness Series II is an attempt to bring the Ashram to societies…

Join us from Mon Dec 3 — Thu Dec 6 from 07.00p-08.30p EST for a unique, interactive, virtual workshop focussing on the universal and practical challenges of: transcending loneliness, time management, internalizing inspiration, conflict resolution, etc. This attempt is open to and will be relevant to all ages, all backgrounds, all.

For Thanksgiving i offer Thanks to those who are Giving to support the actualization of my 1 year / 5 year / 10 year plan of serving Sanatana Dharma. As we commence the 10th year of our E-Vichara, gratitude to all the grateful readers. Your support makes the difference between casual experimentation with self development and systematic practice of self development.
