Ekaanth: The Power of Solitude

Since time immemorial people have often feared isolation. Nobody likes to live isolated and, therefore, seeks the constant company of people. Solitude is synonymous to loneliness – a lack of feeling that something is missing, a pain, a depression, a need, an incompleteness, an absence. They relate isolation to pitch darkness – a state of disconcertment. What people often forget is that even people can make them lonely. Therefore, various Vedic scriptures suggest, one should learn to establish a friendship with one’s self through Ekaanth and then there’s no way for himself to feel lonely.

  1. Enjoyed your article – thank you.

  2. Loneliness is to be distinguished from Aloneness. Aloneness is All Oneness

  3. How to control the mind which runs like a horse to different places. Have tried meditation but unable to do after few minutes. When you are not economically stable how to be calm and compose. Plz explain.

    • Namaste Chandradhar Upadhyay,

      People often have an unsteady mind because they think they can be happy only after having something – money, love, relationships etc – since they focus on that which they don’t have – they are unhappy. The secret is in understanding the Truth that Happiness is a state of mind. If you are happy, your mind will find and accomplish almost anything and everything. So, first be happy, then meditate and you will accomplish all that you desire.

      Hope this helps.

      Pranam,
      Mahesh Prabhu
