The Nature of Absolute Power

Absolute power, that which Vedic seers like Kautilya, Bhartrihari, and Bhardwaj taught, is that which makes a man brave and fearless. In the presence of fear, there can seldom be any enduring power. In life, all fears must be uprooted before we make a place for power. Whether power is to be used in material or spiritual pursuits, uprooting the fear is the key.

Daridryam, Dhanam & Dhanyam: From Poverty to Prosperity to Perpetual Bliss

Every Vedic Rishi has declared Poverty, or दारिद्र्यं (Daaridryam), as the greatest disease, or व्याधि Vyaadhi, capable of crippling not just the body but also the mind. The objective of Vedic education, therefore, was to primarily ensure Prosperity, or संमृद्धि (Samriddhim).

Mantra and Tantra were regarded by Kautilya as two crucial elements in the art and science of Vedic approach to politics – Rajaneeti.

Overcoming the Fear of Death

Recently, I happened to counsel a person diagnosed with a terminal illness. Having read my books, she claimed that while she was “moved” by “the depth of wisdom” in my articles and books, she found them to be very “impractical.” Even though she knew full well that death was her ultimate destination, she was overwhelmed by the very fear of dying. “Who knows what happens after death?” she said. The idea of uncertainty after death was causing greater pain to her than the pain caused by her illness.

Mantra: As the Idea that Creates, Sustains or Destroys

Mantra is by far the most misused as well as abused word of Vedic Sanskrit. The mantra was never some “spell” reciting which you could recite to “magically” summon “divine powers” or “superhuman intervention.” Mantra is also considered by many to be synonymous with yet another Vedic Sanskrit word Shloka.

A Threat might be Real, Fear is Optional, but Hate is always Detrimental    

When people undermine your interests, that is a threat. The threat is always real. But fear is of the mind, therefore optional. If you know you are not the mind, you’d know how to handle the mind and the fear. Fear can undermine the faculties of the mind.
