Mantra to Ponder

HOLD ON TO TRUTHFULNESS

Truthfulness promotes stability in the spheres of our social, economic and family life. Fear and suspicious would mark our days if we move away from truthfulness. A booming economy will be ruined if honesty disappears from the transactions. Love between members of a family is nurtured through truthfulness. The first six commandments in a famous portion of Yajurveda use the words, “na pramaditavyam” that imply: do not slip in these matters but hold on to them!

Hold on to truthfulness!

 satyān-na pramaditavyam

       Taittiriya Upanishad, mantra 1.19

Tips from the Upanishads

The Glimpse beyond Time

The greatest usurper of freedom in human life is thinking. We are, most of the time, pushed around by our own thoughts. We typically keep travelling between past, present and future. Time and thought seem to be the two sides of one coin!

The Upanishads point to an extraordinary truth that is not within time; time rather happens in it!

Om is everything, including past, present and future!
