06.05.2008 Miscellany - The true victory must be won in life itself. You must know how to live alone with the Eternal and Infinite in the midst of all circumstances.
Niraya (Hell) - The true sense of Niraya is that particular kind of atmosphere which one creates around oneself when one acts in contradiction.

13.05.2008 Leasure – If you truly want to follow the path and practise yoga, you must do it because it is an imperative need of your being, because you cannot be happy in any other way.
Craving - Weeds are the bane of the fields; desires the bane of mankind.

20.05.2008 The Bhikkhu – Always be kind and you will be free from suffering, always be contented and happy, and you will radiate your quiet happiness. All the digestive functions are extremely sensitive to an attitude that is critical, bitter, full of ill-will, to a sour judgment.

27.05.2008 The Brahmin – There is a deep trust in the divine Grace, a total surrender to the divine Will, an integral adhesion to the divine Plan which makes one do the thing to be done without concern for the result. That is the perfect liberation.
