Srimad Bhagavatam

The Lord descended down as Kapila. This was the result of the sage Kardhama’s steadfast penance and the Lord’s compassion. He showered his grace on his mother Devahuti. Srimad Bhagavatam gives us a nectarine account of this story…. and a teenager from California retells the story for us.

Krishna Prasad Ram, 13, gives us a short and sweet account of why and how the Lord had to descend as a wild boar. In his own inimitable style, he speaks about Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakashipu and underlines the Lord’s compassion and grace. Varaha is an avatara of Leela (divine plays). Don’t miss the divine play of Lord Varaha in the life of Sri Swamiji as well!

HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji has composed a “Vedanta Athichoodi”, a poetic work that speaks of life’s most important principles. This article speaks about “Aimpulan Adakku” – one of the Athichoodi verses.

The mind and the senses are related and affect each other. The five senses provide constant stimuli to the mind and in turn trigger different thoughts in our mind and keep the mind completely engaged. But this constant engagement is detrimental because it saps mental energy. Mental energy is akin to water flowing in a canal. If too many outlets are dug in a canal, the water gets diverted and the flow in the main canal decreases.
It is thus imperative that one should keep his senses in control in order to progress in spiritual life.
