RECORDING: Being Calm amid the Storm


Vedic Counseling, Emotions, Stress, Debts, Panic, Heartbreaks, Betrayals, Double Standards, Sleeplessness, Depression


To say that “We live in extraordinary times,” would be an understatement to many suffering amid ongoing pandemic leading to financial difficulties owing to economic chaos besides political standoffs, and social unrests. A significant amount of people, including millionaires and billionaires, are struggling with their debts along with emotional stress, failing relationships leading to heartbreaks, and lack of certainty are leading people to, or to the verge of, depression.  Given these unpleasant and uncertain facts there is a dire need for a certain knowledge that can help us to maintain a calm mind to assess situations objectively to help us find lasting solutions to our problems instead of worsening or simply exchanging existing problems for new problems.

In Yoga Vashistha, Vashistha says to, then Prince of Ayodhya, Rama, “If you think that the world is full of pain – you are right. If you think the world is full of bliss – you are right too. For a foot wearing a footwear it is as if the world is covered with carpet. Similarly, for a mind engulfed in chaos the entire world is chaos manifest; whereas for a mind that is calm and steady; the world is full of potential and possibilities. If you want to make world a better place, O Rama, start with your mind.” A great many such discussions between a Guru and his Shishya recorded across scores of Vedic texts can help anyone to find sense amid a great many nonsenses. And in this upcoming Vedic Webinar, U. Mahesh Prabhu will try and explain, subtly and effectively, these perennial teachings.

KEEPING CALM AMID STORM is an interactive webinar that touches upon timeless and time-tested teachings of forgotten Vedic Rishis and Rishikas like Aditi, Gautami, Anamika, Avadhoota Dattatreya, Ashtavakra, Bhartrihari, Bharadwaja and Parashara to understand the dynamics of mind, actions, and reactions. The webinar explains how mind, when channelized helps us build assets and when unbalanced creates debts. It presents the unmistakable connection between emotions of the mind and the economics. How simple change in thoughts can help us change our state of mind and course of our live along with those of great many connected to us – intricately.

Sukham & Duhkham: The Vedic Philosophy on Happiness and Sorrow

We are all born into this body without possessing anything. All that we gain is after the birth of this body. We are also sure to die, after which all that we have accumulated and achieved must be left behind. So, we are neither born nor do we die possessing anything. More like a computer game. Given this why should we fear anything? Why not accept everything as a game and appreciate everything life delivers unto us? Neither pleasure nor pain is lasting. They all have an expiry date. Only those with wisdom live beyond pain and pleasure, happiness and unhappiness into a state of perpetual bliss.

Sannyasa: The True Meaning

Vedic Sanskrit word सन्यासं (Sanyasa) is made of two words, namely: सत् or Truth and न्यास् or Living. Sanyasi, “a person living in Truth,” is one who is full of unconditional LOVE & without a shred of HATE. A true Sanyasi never disown anyone; on the contrary accepts everyone as one’s own – without any EXPECTATIONS. Realizing that ATTACHMENT is the reason for pain; they live in BLISS at all time; be they alone or in company of people.

Ahimsa: A Vedic Perspective

Dharma is not doing to others what you don’t like being done by someone else to you. Dharma is that which sustains the order in self (mind), family, society, nation and the world at large. Dharma is sustained by doing things where the strong don’t thrive by suppressing the weak and the weak are not subjugated by the strong. Dharma provides a way for people to live and let live. When there’s an imposition of someone else’s will on you or your own excesses on others, that’s Himsa, causing Adharma.

What is Kootaneeti? Why is it Important?

There are times to fight, there are also times for retreat. We need not win all the battles in life. Some battles make us strong some teach us valuable lessons. To try and win all battles is vain; but to try and win losing battles is stupidity. Long before we can win, we must gracefully learn from our defeats. To make it worse, we neither considers patience nor perseverance a virtue; most see them as “vice.” The modern definition of success, the ones that are propagated by our business schools, the media organizations, and societies is clearly flawed. Success is not when we receive some award or when some magazine puts us on its cover, or a filmmaker decides to make a biopic. The Vedic idea of success is best explained by Krishna:

Tantra, Mantra, Rajaneeti & Kootaneeti: Unmistakable Connection

Mantra and Tantra were regarded by Kautilya as two crucial elements in the art and science of Vedic approach to politics – Rajaneeti. Without a plan and a strategy to execute it Shakti (read Power) is of no use. In Arthashastra, he declares “Power by itself is useless” and that “Person who seeks power without sound Mantra (objective) and Tantra (strategy) is verily consumed by it.”
