Life Is Like A Dish

Life Is Like A Dish

If there is less salt in a dish, it doesn’t taste so good. If you put more than necessary, the dish becomes poison. If you put too much pepper, again the dish doesn’t taste good, nor if there is too little pepper. 

Now, salt is so necessary, isn’t it? But if you put a lot of it in your kheer, a sweet dish, or you mix a lot of it in your chocolate milk, you won’t be able to eat or drink either. 

A dish becomes good if everything in it is in balance. A meal becomes good if it is balanced in protein, carbs and vitamins, etc.

In life also, one needs balance. Food is good, music is good, work is good, sex is good, rest is good, holidays are good, prayer is good, virtues are good; but everything in moderation.

Moreover everything in its right time and right place. Otherwise it would be like putting salt in the chocolate milk. 

A toothbrush on the dressing table is as out of place as a toilet brush in kitchen. Yes, having sex on the dining table may seem rebellious and give you a kick in your pants, but it is as out of place as having a photo of your deity in your toilet.

Life becomes good when everything in it is in balance and everything is in its right place and at the right time.

The one who makes money his God is as out of balance as the one who hates money.

The one who treats sex as entertainment is as out of balance as the one who thinks sex is sin.

The one who works too much and forgets his family is as out of balance as the one who ignores his work and worry too much about his family.

One who does not exercise his body is as out of balance as the one who over-works his body.

The person who sets his priorities right and practices moderation is the one who ultimately comes out a winner.

Live with moderation, you will live a more tasty and long life. Bon appetite.

To your health, harmony and happiness….

Your Fears & Weaknesses Are Your Biggest Traitors

Your Fears & Weaknesses Are Your Biggest Traitors

No one can oppress you unless you do not give others permission and authority to oppress you, that is a solemn truth.

There is an overt permission and then there is inert permission. When you do not act or raise your voice against oppression, then you are giving the oppressor an inert permission to oppress you. “Inert” is defined as “lacking the strength to resist” leading to “inertia”. Inertia comes from Entropy, the law of least effort.

The Law of Least Effort is a law of the cosmos, that works in everything. Under this law everything is subject to entropy. Entropy means that everything in the universe eventually moves from order to disorder, unless an effort is not put otherwise. For example, let’s say you have just built a magnificent mansion. Now, unless you regularly clean, maintain and repaint it, this beautiful mansion will turn into a dilapidated house with time. 

This same law works in our relationships, business, professional competence, body, mind and soul. In simple terms, whatever is not improved will atrophy. 

Because of this law, we do not resist oppression when it is mild. This emboldens the oppressor. And slowly he or she keeps on increasing the intensity of his or her oppression.

There’s a fable that, “If you throw a frog into very hot water, the frog will jump out, but if you put the frog in room temperature water and just slowly heat the water up to a boiling temperature, the frog will die there.”

Now I don’t know whether that’s true about a frog, but it’s sure as hell true about most oppressed people. Initially, they do not resist mild oppressions and this inert permission is enough for their oppressor to continue his or her oppression and the oppressed never realises when the oppression reaches to a boiling temperature. But usually then it is already too late.

Now, the million dollar question is: “Why on earth, you allow someone to oppress you even mildly?” 

The answer to this question is very simple. Either, you have some weakness, some lack of competence, or lack of character, or wrong attitude, that the oppressor exploits. Or, he or she exploits your fears. So, in reality, it’s your own weaknesses and fears that are your biggest traitors. 

So how do you overcome your weaknesses and fears?

That’s what you will learn in the most practical sense inside GOD YOGA.

So, join GOD YOGA today.

Fanatics vs God Lovers

Fanatics vs God Lovers

INDIA or any nation for that matter is a big community of people sharing the same creed. That creed is defined in its constitution.

And what is our creed? That we are an inclusive community that respects all religions. Those right or left ideologies who want to break and divide people are against the idea of INDIA, they are against our community.  

Sanatana Dharma – The primordial religion

Now consider this, Hinduism is the popular name of Sanatana Dharma. Why is Hinduism called Sanatana Dharma? 
From Quora: {The two words, “Sanatana Dharma”, come from the ancient Sanskrit language. “Sanatana” is a Sanskrit word that denotes that which which is Anadi (beginningless), Anantha (endless) and does not cease to be, that which is eternal and everlasting. Dharma is from dhri, meaning to hold together, to sustain. Its approximate meaning is “Natural or Cosmic Law,” or those principles of reality which are inherent in the very nature and design of the universe. Thus the term Sanatana Dharma can be roughly translated to mean “the natural, ancient and eternal way.” It is a code of ethics, a way of living through which one may achieve moksha (enlightenment, liberation).}  

Now, this means that Hindus consider them to be the father/mother or original religion. From this point of view, all religions that come after are the progeny of Hinduism.

If Sanatana Dharma is the first religion, by that fact doesn’t it become the mother of all religions? (By the way, the same claim is made by the proponents of Jainism, Judaism & Taoism)

That makes all the religions that came after, sons and daughters of Hinduism, right?

Then why is a mother hating and fighting with her own children?

Aren’t all great prophets teaching the same natural and eternal way? Aren’t all great prophets enlightening the humanity about those natural and cosmic laws?

So, as per this view, whatever name their followers may give their religion, they are all in fact sons and daughters of the Sanatana Dharma.

Because there are no different laws of nature for different religions. All are trying to know, interpret and follow the same cosmic laws. So what’s the fuss about?

Shouldn’t a father/mother be inclusive of all his/her children?

Why would God play favourites to any religion? Aren’t all religions God’s own, if they all know and follow the true law of God?

Shouldn’t the ones who calls themselves the broadest and grand daddy of all religions should be inclusive of all prophets who came after?

Already we consider Buddha to be one of the incarnations of Vishnu. From this point of view, Christ, Mohammad, Buddha and Guru Nanak, or whoever has preached the God’s law, all are God’s Prophets. All are Sanatana Dharma’s Prophets. Teaching the same laws of God. Interpretations may differ from time to time, place to place.

The Vedas give us the wonderful concept of “Vasidhaiv Kutumbakam” – The Whole World is a Family.

And hasn’t that happen in a way, that INDIA or Hindustan is the land where all religions have there place. In fact, it may be the only country in all of planet Earth, where we celebrate Diwali, Christmas, Buddha Purnima, Eid and Guru Purab together. And that is what INDIA is all about. Inclusiveness. Let’s not let the right and left divide India and break our community. 

Let’s understand a few things:

GOD = The Creator

DHARMA = Cosmic Principles/Laws

RELIGION – came from the Latin word RELIGARE which means “To come back” – Return to God = The Way Back to God

Now, the division or difference of opinion happens when we divide God in my God and your God. And my way and your way.


FANATICISM = Your God and Your Way is WRONG. ONLY My God and My Way is RIGHT.

HERO WORSHIP = Being oblivious to the VIRTUES of others. Being oblivious to the VICES of your choice.
(Only God is perfect, rest only are a mixture of vices and virtues)
Whosoever I worship all his vices are virtues. All his wrongdoings are right.
And if you don’t agree, like and worship my hero, then you are wrong and should be persecuted and prosecuted.
Hero-Worshipping results in you making your hero into your master, into a semi-god; even if he is a rapist & killer (How many God-Men are in Indian jails right now!). You blindly start doing all kinds of horrendous karmas (which by the way are all accounted for in your Personal Karmic A/c) at the command or wish of your hero.


Openness, Respect, Objectivity & Acceptance of the Weaknesses of your opinions/choices/heroes and, Strengths of others.


There are fanatics & hero-worshippers in all religions who always choose the Way of Hate & Violence.

There are God-Lovers in all religions who always choose the Way of Love & Non-Violence.

AND THE MOST HUMOUROUS FACT is that when a fanatic is born in one religion/nation, he hates the other religions/nations. And in next life, when the same fanatic is born in some other religion/nation which he was hating in the previous birth, he starts hating the religion/nation he was born in the previous birth. It’s tragical to the point of being comical.

But a God-Lover when is born in a different religion than his previous birth will gain a different perspective and will take one more step towards BEING ONE WITH GOD, the real purpose of all religions. According to one belief, Hindu Guru – Adi Shankaracharya was incarnated as Saint Francis of Assisi in one of his previous births. And if that’s true then he excelled in understanding and propagating both Hinduism and Christianity in his different incarnations. That’s what a true Spiritual Being is. That’s what a true God-Lover is.

You choose what you want to be:
A ‘fanatic’ or A ‘God-Lover’!

With love and peace
