  • Navaratri Means Give Fearlessly

    Friday, October 12th, 2007

    Today is the start of Navaratri, a ten day festival celebrating the Grace and Wisdom of the Goddess.

    Maha Shakti is the entirety of the life process. Everything we are, see, feel, touch, hear, smell, and accomplish is Her. more…

  • Karma and the Quality of Mercy

    Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007

    We’ve all heard that “What you don’t know won’t hurt you.” Or, “Ignorance is bliss.

  • Star Trek vs. the Kaliyuga

    Monday, July 30th, 2007

    I grew up watching Star Trek. Somehow, rationalism, technology, and the scientific View have failed to deliver that shiny, clean world of unlimited exploration in which human beings get to lecture less evolved races on other planets about their bad behavior.

One day, I heard a news story about the relief efforts. A helicopter pilot responsible for dropping food into the war-torn area described how he had seen villagers fighting over grains of rice, scattered in the dirt during the food drop. This story made a deep impression. I still cannot measure rice into a cup without thinking of it, and if a grain falls onto the countertop, I make certain that it gets into the pot, that it does not go to waste.

    Tantrik sadhana begins with learning about how we waste our energy, our Shakti. more…
