Articles by Satyanarayana DasaComments Off on Dissatisfaction Leads to Perfection

By Satyanarayana Dasa: I have never met anybody in my life who was fully satisfied with his or her situation, environment, condition, position, relations, health, wealth, or possessions. The poor are hankering to be rich, and the rich want to be richer. An overweight person wants to lose weight, and a thin person wants to gain a few pounds.

Question of a Dying Man

By Satyanarayana Dasa: It is ironic that even while life is full of uncertainties, we continually try to plan for it and figure out how to lead “successful” lives. Death, on the other hand, is absolutely certain, but we tend to avoid thinking about it, let alone planning for it. We even avoid the word “death” using phrases such as “kicked the bucket,” “passed away,” “departed,” or “ascended to heaven,” instead of simply saying someone has died.

Adhikara – Eligibility for Understanding Scriptures

By Satyanarayana Dasa: Everybody in this world has certain qualifications to perform specific duties or activities and, in so doing, gains satisfaction, happiness and success. If a person tries to perform duties or activities that he is not qualified to perform, then, in all probability, dissatisfaction, frustration and misery for himself, and possibly others, will result. Therefore, one of the very basic principles taught in Bhagavad Gita, is to work according to one’s qualifications. Krishna Himself says para dharmo bhayavaha--- to perform the duty for which one is not qualified is dangerous.

We are failing to see that the current problems of society are deeply rooted within the family unit, for society is merely a combination of family units. Therefore, the new adage should be “Problems begin at home.”

The Necessity of Self-Discipline

By Satyanarayana Dasa: The purpose of Yoga is to quell the mind of all disturbing thoughts, and this is not possible without self-discipline. Thus, without self-discipline, success in yoga is phantasmagoria. Yoga has often been wrongly construed as a collection of Asanas or postures, but it is really a system of self-discipline. Asanas and pranayamas (breathing exercises)

The Role of Entertainment in Vedic Life

Articles by Satyanarayana DasaComments Off on The Role of Entertainment in Vedic Life

By Satyanarayana Dasa: It is often thought that life in Vedic society was very austere, full of rules and rituals, with no value placed on entertainment. It may seem like drudgery, when seen through the eyes of modern society. This is, however, far from true. On the contrary, the ancient Indian civilization, molded under the Vedic principles, placed great importance on entertainment and happiness.
