The name of the festival, Raksha Bandhan is made up of two words, Raksha (Protection) and Bandhan (Relation). On this day, a sister ties ‘Rakhi’ around her brother’s wrist while the brother undertakes an oath to protect his sister until death. He vows to stand by his sister through thick and thin. Sisters tying the sacred thread around the wrists of brothers is a symbol of attachment, meant to strengthen their bond of love.
More than a colourful, decorative silk thread, Raksha Bandhan has b

We didn't come here for the stuff, We came here to love each other.
We didn't come here by accident,
We came here with a purpose that is uniquely our own.

The 76-year-old woman walked down the hallway of Clearview Addictions Clinic, searching for the right department. She passed signs for the "Heroin Addiction Department (HAD)," the "Smoking Addiction Department (SAD)" and the "Bingo Addiction Department (BAD)." Then she spotted the department she was looking for: "Facebook Addiction Department (FAD)."
It was the busiest department in the clinic, with about three dozen pe
How do you define the word “Relationship”? Is it really just a word or is there something more behind this word?
What exactly is relationship? Is it defined by the norms of society, or your expectations define it or your feelings???
A relation where you are attached to the other person, where you have expectations from the other person and vice-versa does that relation feels good or a relation in which you are free in every sense, is that better?
If we are supposed to be detached without
Life is a journey and I agree that all of us are on our individual journey. We meet new people at every step in our lives. These fellow travelers walk with us for a while and then they go on their own ways. But some of these people become so special so precious for you, that you don’t want to loose them. They guide you with their love and wisdom with so much care. There presence make your journey more beautiful, your life seems much more meaningful. They bring out the best in you. They bring you
I packed my bags and was on my way. To where? I don’t know. Why? I wasn’t told. I met many travelers on my way,some took my hand and showed me the way,some weren’t that nice and they pushed me away. Some walked with me a long way, some dumped me on mid way. But this has made me realize that people might come,people might go,they might stay, they might leave. Its not in my hands, its not upto me. Its their choice. And actually it doesn’t matter, coz we all are on our own journeys, and this journe
I can’t say that I’m a victim of destiny. I’m not cribbing, “Why me, o Lord?” But yes I’ve had my share of problems, have faced my share of hurts n pains. One thing that these adverse situations have taught me is that you can win any battle in life with the attitude of gratitude.
Its simple. Just be greatful with what u have received in life. Every moment it gift, a present from the almighty, be thankful for it. Every moment is a miracle. Realize your every breath, every heartbeat is a mir
Do you think Ram can exist without Ravana? Would Ramayan be complete without Ravana? Life is the manifestation in duality. What value will Love have, without hate?
White is said to be the color of Love, color of Purity. Ever wondered why? It is because when you break white color you get seven colors of the rainbow. Same way love is the total of all the emotions. Hate, Jealousy, Greed are as much part of Love as Forgiveness, Kindness and Compassion. Difference is just in their frequency. Ev

I am a cracked pot..How about you
A water bearer in Indiahad two large pots, each hung on each end of a pole which he carried across hisneck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and while the other pot was perfectand always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk fromthe stream to the master's house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.
For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only oneand a half pots full of water to his mast
We rightfully teach children—and attempt to live our own lives—by the credos of responsibility, self-control, and mature self-reliance. And yes, being responsible is a very good thing. But when our attitude reaches the point where we trust more in ourselves than in God, twin temptations, both that lead to spiritual shipwreck, suddenly confront us.
One temptation is pride, an unhealthy arrogance that slips (or roars) into our thinking when things are going great in our lives. We become conv
If you could choose between feeling gloomy and feeling delighted, which one would you choose? If you could choose between feeling sorry for yourself and feeling confident in your ability to make a difference, which would you choose?
The delightful fact is that you can choose and you do choose your attitude, every moment of every day. When you're feeling sad or happy or frustrated or assured, it's because you've decided to respond to life in that particular way.
"My Work My Worship By Swami Ranganathananda"
1. “Are you growing spiritually? Can you love others? Can you feel oneness with others? Have you peace within yourself and do you radiate it around you? That is called spiritual growth, which is stimulated by meditation, inwardly, and by work done in a spirit of Service outwardly.”
2. The great new mantra today is “Work” and ‘Hard Work’; along with Hard work, intelligent work co-operative team work. All great undertakings are product
Only the ego can be touched. It is very touchy. If somebody just looks at you in a certain way, it is touched. He has not done anything. If somebody smiles a little, it is touched; if somebody just turns his head and does not look at you, it is touched. It is very touchy. It is like a wound, always open, green. You touch it and the pain arises. A single word, a single gesture -- the other may not even be aware of what he has done to you, but he has touched it.
And you alw
Once Buddha was walking from one town to another town with a few of his followers.. This was in the initial days. While they were traveling, they happened to pass a lake. They stopped there and Buddha told one of his disciples, “I am thirsty. Do get me some water from that lake there.”
The disciple walked up to the lake. When he reached it, he noticed that right at that moment, a bullock cart started crossing through the lake. As a result, the water became very muddy, very turbid. The disci

Before we talk about success let us first determinewhat we mean by youth. We will define youth as those individuals who arebetween the ages of 18 and 30 and have lots of enthusiasm. They are industrious and want to make a name forthemselves. However, we find that this youthful energy can also be misdirected. This happens becausesome of the youth lack an ideal toward which they can direct their energies.
