The Need for Multifarious Sports

WE HUMAN BEINGS HAVE been endowed with a highly advanced and sophisticated machinery in the human body. It is our responsibility to maintain this body in good shape and ensure that it remains healthy during its lifetime. To achieve this, we have to ensure that food, rest, and exercise are optimally available to the body. […]

From Underperformance to Beyond performance

We undertake to perform and often underperform. We aim to do a task and have the confidence and ability to do it. However, we have hurdles to tackle. The biggest hurdle is that of lack of clarity. That in turn leads to fear, delusion, and confusion. We get confused about our aims, our confidence wavers, […]

The Ride We Seldom Take

The human life is full of journeys. The entire life itself is a big journey that has many small and long journeys interspersed within it. We have many destinations, one leads to the other. Some destinations become the starting points to newer destinations. We take many journeys, we miss some, and forget to take some […]

#moksha

  It is quite trendy to follow what is trending these days. One wears what is the fashion, talks what is the fad, eats in places that are happening, watches movies that have rave reviews, buys mobile phones with highest star ratings, and sheepishly surrenders one’s wit and will to the scales of five-star markings, […]

Yoga: The Technology of Mind Management

   The mind is the key to everything. Without the mind, we cannot accomplish anything. All our sense organs need the mind to complete the process of gathering information or knowledge from the outside world. The human mind is indeed a fine instrument. But, this is only the positive side. When one tries to use the mind effectively to carry […]

A Crowd of Fools

It is in the very human nature to strive for excellence. All human pursuits are geared up for attaining excellence. Even an apparently lazy person wants to excel in the pursuit of laziness and goes to great lengths to  prove that it is quite possible to live a life without doing any kind of practical work! It is another matter that such […]
