Buddha famously said that ‘Life is Suffering’. Many realists quote this aphorism from Buddha to depict the condition of life for the vast majority of humanity. However nobody sufficiently quotes the next statement Buddha made: There is a way out of suffering.

Like Buddha, Indian Yogis and Siddhas have always…


Forgiving has never been easy for me. Being a Sagittarian (which is a fire sign) on one hand and the venomous Snake (my Chinese sign) on another, I would always place honour above forgiveness.

Recently, a friend mentioned that his prime learning from our two great epics –Ramayana and Mahabharata

Gautam Buddha proclaims that life is suffering while an Epicurus claims that…


There is a certain problem with a high-agenda life. It kills all the possibility of love between two beings. The reasoning is simple. Love comes about when you meet somebody without a need-to-complete-this or need-to-complete-that. …
