Sri Aurobindo : A Response

Sri Aurobindo : A Response

While this is one of the rarer cases of a researched article on an Indian spiritual figure in the popular press, and is genuine, the discussion is somewhat superficial. Firstly, the general journalistic style of presenting opposing viewpoints on a subject, is not ideally suited to examining such a towering spiritual figure as Sri Aurobindo. [...]

This German scholar sold his firm to spread knowledge of Vedas

Vedic knowledge impressed a German scholar so much that he sold his business consultancy firm in his country about 20 years ago to embark on a mission to spread the understanding of these ancient religious texts in India and the rest of the world. [...]

The Hindu Concept of Time : Part One

The Hindu Concept of Time : Part One

In general, the Eastern understanding of time is very subtle, and perhaps is only matched by some of the most recent theories of modern science. That time is relative, is well recognized, and the fact that the scale of time need not be the same everywhere is acknowledged. The time of the Gods for example, [...]

Non-Dualism: The basic philosophy of most schools of Hinduism, Buddhism, and the Indo-European Tradition

Non-Dualism: The basic philosophy of most schools of Hinduism, Buddhism, and the Indo-European Tradition

Based on a number of requests to explain the basics of Eastern philosophies in English for those daunted by the sheer volume of foreign terms, I have attempted to present a simplified summary of basic concepts in one document. I’m only a student myself, so I assume all responsibility for any inaccuracies in the following [...]

Are we living inside a cosmic computer game? Elon Musk echoes the Bhagwad Gita

Are we living inside a cosmic computer game? Elon Musk echoes the Bhagwad Gita

When a tech billionaire and hard-headed pragmatist seems to reprise the ancient Indian concept of maya, or illusion, it’s time to shut up and pay attention. When the film The Matrix was released in 1999, its central premise, that the world is not what it seems to be, appeared to reprise the ancient Indian concept of [...]

The Ancestors: Secret Doorway to Health and Healing.

The Ancestors: Secret Doorway to Health and Healing.

In fact, Yoga/Hinduism is one of the few (if not only major tradition) surviving to this day that still highly favors honoring one’s ancestors. While it is somewhat understandable as to why the modern mind would ask the question, ‘what is the value of honoring the ancestors?’ In reality, the answer to this [...]

Chakras within the Vedas : Stopping Scholarly Distortion of Vedic Teachings

Chakras within the Vedas : Stopping Scholarly Distortion of Vedic Teachings

There has been commentary by some scholars that the concept of chakras is a relatively new phenomenon within Hinduism; and there appears to be an implication that chakras were not known to the Vedic tradition. Regrettably, this appears to be part of a continuing effort to redefine Hinduism, and to imply that Dharmist do not [...]

De-colonization As De-contextualization: Why The ‘Cultural Appropriation’ Argument Is Not About Yoga

De-colonization As De-contextualization: Why The ‘Cultural Appropriation’ Argument Is Not About Yoga

To my chagrin and dismay, self-appointed defenders of oppressed cultures who cast contemporary western yoga as the second coming of the East India Company have attached themselves to the fabric of yoga discourse with the stubborn persistence of a burr on a sock. Consequently, perfectly serviceable yoga programs are now at risk of being run [...]

Devavani—Light on Sanskrit

Devavani—Light on Sanskrit

Sanskrit is often referred to as the language of the Devas. But is this really true? Certainly the antiquity of Sanskrit is not in question, as there is little doubt that the vibrational and sound model for Sanskrit is considerably old, as Sanskrit as a language is traced back to at least the Brahmi script[i], [...]
