inner peace

It’s interesting that India, one of the noisiest places in the world, is also the mecca of inner peace - a place where western seekers flock to yoga and meditation retreats, and spend time in ashrams for that much sought-after “Om”. Even ashrams in India rattle to the sound of steel on steel as India builds outwards and upwards - a modernisation project with no end in sight. However, if you delve into ancient Indian texts, peace and tranquility are not found ‘out there’, but inside us. “The same fire that cooks your meal burns the child. Is it the fault of the fire?” asks Swami Vivekananda in The Science of Breathing. “Blessed be the fire!” he exclaims. “The world is neither good nor bad; the world is the world. The…

letters from india

Virali Modi The day I swallowed a bottle of pills, it was winter and my mother was in the shower. She had left my medications by my bedside table. I was under psychological treatment and my mother did everything she could to help me, but my friends were enjoying their lives while I was left in a wheelchair. I reached for the bottle of pills on the table and swallowed the contents. My ears started ringing and soon I couldn’t feel my face any longer. I thought the world would be better off without me: without a disabled child, my parents could follow their dreams, and I could be reborn into a body without any faults. But when the ringing started, I couldn’t hear anything. I panicked. I couldn’t feel my face;…

Ganesh, one of Hinduism’s most identifiable deities thanks to his distinctive elephant head, is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of the arts and sciences, and the god of intellect and wisdom.

Earthquakes are attributed to the shaking…
