My experience of Krishna: The lover and his loving embrace

It felt like the entire Universe has a core. This is the center of that magnet. It constantly is pulling everything towards it and that pull is love. I realized that this centre was the centre for everything. This coincides with the centre of me, of the Sun, of the Moon, of all the planets, of the Earth, of you, of us, of the entire Universe and everything in it. For everything there is a common centre, and that is what connects us all. This is that navel of Vishnu from which everything emerged.

Presentation + Workshop: Painting the colours of your “chakra”

With the popularity of yoga, "chakra" has once again become a word that is heard sometimes. What can we learn about ourselves through the understanding of chakras? How can the problems in our lives be better tackled if we learn to balance these energy centres? We will create our personality colour-charts after we learn to evaluate our chakras. We will thus be aware of our negative and positive sides and be able to see many unknown links behind our traits that affect one another. We will explore colours in a new way touching upon a part of this ancient practice of chakra yoga.

Presentation + Workshop: Demystifying the Indian deities

Why is Saraswati in white attire? Why does Durga have 10 hands? Why is owl the vehicle of Lakshmi? What do the gods and goddesses mean and why are they so many in number? Can the deities be useful in our daily lives or are they just part of our rituals?  In a step by step manner, as we pick up the visual language through the understanding of colours, symbols, metaphors and personifications, we will gradually get closer to the secret messages the deities hold for us.

My experience of Vipassana: Mind matters or mind Vs matter

In one such session, the pain was increasing and so were the layers of current, consuming my physical body and dematerializing it in every step till the whole body was not felt. As I was present there just being a mass of energy I could feel no physicalness and so no pain. But I knew my physical body of course still existed and so did the pain. But to my surprise when I returned to my physical plane, there was no pain. Since it was gone, it could mean that we can easily remove any physical discomforts or diseases just by entering the energy body and adjusting the energy flow there. Probably thats what self-healing meant.

My experience of Shiva: Tandav, the cosmic dance

I was like an electric transmitter. I hoped no one touches me at this point, or I might just faint and this energy might break lose killing me or harming me and harming the individual who touches me as well. Because I was electrified. I felt I was radiating white light from my bigger energy body, with tremendous force. As the whizzing of the energies happened, I felt I could simply get uprooted from the ground. I started concentrating on my root chakra while this energy dance went on. I started to say in my mind, "Mother please hold me. Even though I do not know what is to be done, you know the best for me. Hold me."

My experience of Shiva: Cosmic energy and Jeevatman

I realized I could not feel the sense of my physical body anymore. At that point from below my chest came out a flame of light from that emptiness, yellow but not harshly blazing. It was a steady yellow light, calm and gentle. I could very well recognize this light was me. And I wondered, does that mean everyone has a light or rather IS a light in another dimension? As soon as I thought that, several other similar lights emerged out from other people sitting in the meditation chamber. I realized that even if my sense of body comes back soon, this light in that dimension is going to remain and play with other lights, interact and dance while I in my physical body continue my physical life.

The India Studies: Course outline

To understand India it is important to understand its soul. This is a country with a strong spiritual core. When Krishna guides Arjun encouraging him in battle, he still discourages him in violence. Now this itself is a controversy that a mind which is not trained in this school of thinking cannot penetrate. This kind of controversy is in the lengths and breaths of India. To understand India, one has to train. This is a course outline for a design institute which could prepare its students with that stronger base.

The India Studies: My background, journey and realization

When the designers themselves grow without much understanding of India within the discipline, that fight continues leading to the fight of ideal within the country. In an institute like NID, which puts so much emphasis on understanding the surrounding, whose very root was set to empower India through the understanding of India as documented in the India Report by Charles Eames, one still feels that missing links and history. When I visited other newer institutes, this missing factor was even larger to the extent that it distorted the very purpose of "design".
