Spiritual Meditations

As Gandhi, already wearing his own homespun cloth, noted more than 100 years ago: ‘Earth provides enough for every person’s need but not for every person’s greed.’ This is something that those attending the World Economic Forum are too psychologically damaged to understand....

 

Since 2005 the occasion has been commemorated as International Holocaust Re­­membrance Day, and two of the Auschwitz camps are a UN World Heritage site. Could there conceivably be a worse heritage than the smoking crematoria of the mid-1940s?...

 

Swamiji stressed on reshaping our outer purpose of life and activities in accordance with inner purpose of revelation of cosmic solidarity in profound oneness of existence...

“But the work is to transform the ego that thinks like that, the ego that dresses itself in clever disguises. The ego especially likes to appear as spiritual, to clothe itself in respectable attributes like self-discipline, intellectual attainment, false humility, enlightened personality, sentimentality, and pseudo compassion.”...

 

When Rumi urges us elsewhere to ‘Pass into sight, pass into sight, pass into sight!’ it is surely the kind of sight that Tolstoy is helping us to cultivate through his novel. One way or another, time is surely dragging us painfully towards this enlightened perception....

 

Augustinianism’s un-baptized babes descending in their thrashing billions to a perpetual and condign combustion; Dante’s exquisitely psychotic dreamscapes of twisted, mutilated, broiling souls; St. Francis Xavier morosely informing his weeping Japanese converts that their deceased parents must suffer an eternity of agony...

 

This view that women are somehow inferior to men is not restricted to one religion or belief. Women are prevented from playing a full and equal role in many faiths. Nor, tragically, does its influence stop at the walls of the church, mosque, synagogue or temple...

In Newton’s time, the universe was considered to be a mechanical one. But further research showed this assumption to be wrong. Research in various fields of science seems to indicate that the universe is an intelligent universe….

The Quran says, “Let them not dispute with you in the matter.” This verse would mean, ‘Do not give others a chance to dispute with you.’ That is, ‘You should not enter into disputes.’…

 

In all Religious scriptures it is understood as given that performance of church based scripted “Worship” is ultimately to please God and Worshipper's endeavour is to acquire God's “Love”. Therefore, as a follower of Islam a verse connecting 'Love of God' and the purpose and meaning of 'Worship' from the scripture Quran was searched and found and is contemplated upon here. ...

 
God—the Voice of Human Nature
God—the Voice of Human Nature
Maulana Wahiduddin Khan

No matter how rebellious a man may be, no matter how much he may deny God, in times of extreme difficulty, and he cries out to God in complete helplessness. This is evidence that God is the voice of human nature....

 

Finally, because of population growth, the effect of climate change on agriculture and the end of the fossil fuel era, there is a danger that by the middle of the present century a very large-scale famine could take the lives of as many as a billion people...

In our long history we see Mahatma Buddha, a secular philosopher and thinker, deified and made stuff of incomprehensible metaphysical mumbo jumbo. Reason or rationality challenges the smugness of the given and thus making it a part of one’s intellectual repertoire is not easy....

 

“I am convinced that my release was the fruit of the prayers of millions worldwide, more especially, the prayers and sacrifices of my countrymen. Heartfelt thanks to each and every one. May God Bless you abundantly and recompense you as He knows best.”...

 

Death, of course, knows no age barrier and can arrive at any moment. But as our bodies grow older and we begin to realise that we aren’t going to be in this world forever and that sooner or later we will have to leave this realm; we need to consciously prepare ourselves for this momentous event in our life’s journey....

 

An effort is being made here in the hope of drawing attention to what is secular in the highly fulfilling life of Guru Nanak that transcends religious boundaries and can serve as a uniting link between people of diverse faiths and different persuasions...

 

Throughout humankind’s history, messengers have been sent to their specific communities to warn people and guide them to the right path, whenever they strayed towards evil acts and persisted with the latter....

 

And what, exactly, did God (by whatever name: Allah, Krishna, Yahweh…) or the Gods say? We might ask. Well even those who profess little more than scant knowledge of religious texts that purport to represent the word of God might suggest that s/he simply breathed a (silent) sigh of relief that the insanity of mass warfare had ended...

 

But at around the same time as ‘zero-defect management’ in human affairs proved to be a failure, scientific research was proving that the system of nature that operates throughout the universe is based precisely on the principle of ‘zero-defect management’....

Like any other human value, tolerance needs to be nurtured, supported and instilled in society as a common culture. The assumption that the value system governing any society or nation is fixed or unchanging is incorrect; it goes against God’s natural order in the universe, which is governed by changing circumstances....

In the democratic camp, reasoning and intellect have declined. There is still plenty of cultural and artistic output but the intellectual challenge of ideas is on the decline....

 

A great scholar, well-versed in mathematics and urban design, who ruled his kingdom and did well; and that like the British king Arthur, he passed from history to legend, from legend to myth, and ended up being unfairly cast as the villain in a domestic squabble....

 
Our Vanishing World: Insects
Our Vanishing World: Insects
Robert J. Burrowes, New Age Islam

However, since the industrial revolution commencing in about 1750, just 270 years ago, humans have been destroying Earth’s biosphere with such tremendous ferocity that the Earth we inherited at the beginning of the Holocene Epoch is vanishing before our eyes. And life is vanishing with it….

 

Instead the Ramayana is full of moral dilemmas and exploration of human bonds. Ram’s tribulations in his closest relationships are one of the reasons the Ramayana speaks so powerfully down the generations, and why it is so uniquely modern. Should the richly philosophical Ram be used to assert angry politicised Hindutva on the street?...

The rest you know, Rama. From a mere prince you became Shri Rama, and you went on to fulfil your task — decimate Ravana. In all honesty, Ravana has my sympathy. The gods were jealous of who Ravana was. It was a conspiracy and, like all conspiracies, effected in the name of the greater good....
