    The moment our Indian Airlines flight from New Delhi International Airport touched down the Aurangabad Airport on a relatively pleasant August evening, I had a sense of devotion filled my heart. It was in my mind for quite long time to pay a visit to Sheerdi Sai Dham. Today the dream will get fulfilled, I thought. It was not so easy to take care of a 20-month-old baby for the mother also but strangely enough he was also not troubling us much. After taking rest in a pre-booked hotel room, we headed towards Sai Dham. Read More...

  • a-darshan-of-mata-di

    People often say and I also believe that until and unless you get a call from the Mata di, you can’t pay a visit to Vaishno Devi. I have been in Delhi for over 15 years yet never before felt even for a second that I should also visit the temple of faith in Jammu. But one fine morning in November, I along with four close relatives set out for the holy pilgrimage. My minds were filled with a sense of devotion and faith. Couple of years back, I kept fast on Friday for nearly two years and since then my attention was drawn towards holy pilgrimage. The journey to the Holy Shrine of Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Ji starts with the Call of Mata..........

  • heart-sutra-the-buddhist-scripture-on-doctrine-of-perfection-of-wisdom-2

    Prajnaparamita Hridaya Sutra or the Heart Sutra is the shortest yet the most meaningful and impacting of all sutras. It explains that one should not give any value to materialistic world or Maya as it only exists in our thoughts. Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara explains the concept of emptiness by saying that there is no specific start or end to our eyes in any time or space. Our eyes are not independent; they are connected to the nose, which is connected to the mouth; which in turn connects to the head, feet, hands and so on. In other words, nothing is independent and everything is inter-connected; nothing has its own characteristics or influence and everything is intertwined in our thoughts. If we learn the power of emptiness, we have no fear or happiness, we transcend to the state of pure bliss. Read More...
