Gita for Daily Enrichment
Is life a doomed journey from a station called birth to a station called death with a bit of pleasure and a lot of pain sprinkled between? Though we rarely think of life in such stark terms, isn’t that its unvarnished reality? No, it isn’t. Life has a higher, richer, sweeter dimension – a spiritual dimension – that we frequently overlook amidst the horse-race pace of our current civilization. The Gita for Daily Enrichment makes life’s spiritual dimension readily accessible throughout the year with its 365 brief reflections that can be read in just a few minutes. Meditate daily on the timeless wisdom of the Bhagavad-gita and enrich yourself with the sublime wealth of potent, pleasant and penetrating thoughts.
The Eye to See the "I"
The Eye to See the I features 121 reflections on the Bhagavad-gita that make its insights appreciable in brief, relishable nuggets of wisdom. The book published in hard copy on Janmashtami last year is already nearing the end of its first print run and will go for the second print soon. Some of the reflections in the book are:
- Money talks – and walks away as it is talking
- We can’t replace the mind, but we can re-place it
- The soul seems far out because it is far in
- Free love is a self-contradiction
- The heart of knowledge is the knowledge of the heart
- Let repetition be a re-petition
- The past won’t last if to Krishna we hold fast
With punchy titles that distill each article’s central message, the Eye to See the I addresses a wide variety of issues, all meant to help us realize and relish the innermost core of our being.
Belong addresses our heart’s longing to belong to something bigger than ourselves – a longing that is nourished and fulfilled by the Bhagavad-gita’s transformational message of spiritual love. While presenting that message in accessible 300-word nuggets, Belong shines the light of the Gita on many themes important for our inner growth:
- Optimism: Our willingness is more important than our willpower
- Resentment: Possibilities expand when we begin from where we are instead of where we should be
- Happiness: Temporary relief from self-inflicted torture is not pleasure
- Association: Our desires are not just linear, but also triangular
- Temptation: We don’t have to defeat our lower desires – we can just let them lose
- Discipline: Rules free you to be you
- Devotion: Krishna is the master before whom we stand truly erect
These 121 reflections prompt the head and the heart to move closer towards belonging to the one in whom our potentials attain the fullest development and we find the deepest fulfillment.
