Puppets Of Faith : Theory of Communal Strife (A critical appraisal...

By: BS Murthy

On one hand, this ‘book of logic ‘n reasoning’ appraises the Islamic faith shaped by the sublimity of Muhammad's preaching in Mecca and the severity of his sermons in Medina, which together make it Janus-faced to bedevil the minds of the Musalmans. That apart, aided by “I’m Ok – You’re Ok”, the path-breaking work of Thomas A. Harris and Roland E Miller’s “Muslim Friends–Their Faith and Feeling”, this work for the first time ever, psycho-analyses the imperatives of the ...

Preface of Strife The lava of the volcano on which the world sits is the disaffection the Musalmans nurse towards the kafirs. While its chemistry world over is the Islamic religious rigidity, in India it is compounded by the Hindu ‘historical’ hurt, aggravated by the Muslim-appeasing political ethos of the State. It’s thus the Indian landscape is dotted with many of its earlier eruptions, but the one, in the wake of Godhra’s ‘burning train’ in 2002, affected everyone as...

Sundara Kanda: Hanuman's Odyssey

By: BS Murthy

While Mahabharata's Bhagvad-Gita is taken as a philosophical guide, Ramayana's Sundara Kãnda is sought for spiritual solace; many believe that reading Sundara Kãnda or hearing it recited would remove all hurdles and usher in good tidings! Miracles apart, it's in the nature of Sundara Kãnda to inculcate fortitude and generate hope in one and all. After all, isn't it a depiction of how Hanuman goes about his errand against all odds!

Ācārya Kundakunda’s Pańcāstikāya-samgraha – With Authentic Explana...

By: Vijay K. Jain

Pańcāstikāya means ‘five-substances-with-bodily-existence’ and these are: the soul (jīva), the physical-matter (pudgala), the medium-of-motion (dharma), the medium-of-rest (adharma), and the space (ākāśa). These five substances collectively constitute the universe-space (loka). Outside this universe-space (loka) is the infinite non-universe-space (aloka), comprising just the pure space (ākāśa). The substance-of-time (kāla dravya) which renders assistance to all substance...

By: Dada Bhagwan; Deepakbhai Desai, Editor

For the one who wants to have the clear and distinct experience of the Self in this body itself, it would be impossible to achieve it without the greater purity of brahmacharya (celibacy through mind, body, and speech. As long as there is the subtlest wrong belief that there is happiness in vishay (sexuality), the subatomic particle of vishay will not get completely exhausted. Until the wrong belief leaves completely, one has to maintain jagruti of the utmost subtle form...

A Pilgrimage With the Gnani Is a Jackpot (Hindi Dadavani January-2020)

By: Dada Bhagwan; Deepakbhai Desai, Editor

Absolutely revered Dada Bhagwan [Dadashri] always used to say that this jatra is the discharge of the karma ‘we’ have bound in the last life. The purpose of it is to wash off the viradhana (to go against another living being) ‘we’ have done knowingly or unknowingly in the past. ‘We’ do not organize a jatra with doership. Actually, the purpose of a jatra is for the sake of the Self and for the sake of bhakti (the Lord’s worship that brings one closer to the Self). It is i...

Son of God: The Daily Gospel C-1

By: Fr Fr Edward J Tyler

THE SENSE OF GOD IN THE CONSCIENCE Vol II – Appendix

By: Fr Edward J Tyler

Nine of these sermons are from his later Evangelical years and were preached in St Clement’s Church Oxford, where the young Newman served as curate from July 1824 to March 1826. Although he was at St Clement’s for less than two years, he had a great impact on the parish, becoming widely respected as “a proper minister”. He visited every home (including, to his surprise, that of Fr Newsham, the Jesuit Catholic priest who had the small St Ignatius Catholic chapel there). H...

These sermons give both indirect and direct indications of his early views on the religious conscience, and they are among those Newman texts discussed in different chapters of the Part I ebook. With the exception of the last MS sermon, the copies of Newman’s sermons that now follow have been published in: Volume V of John Henry Newman Sermons 1824-1843. Sermons preached at St Clement’s Oxford, 1824-1826 and two charity sermons, 1827. Edited from previously unpublished ...
