Integral health

Living truly

James Anderson

The two most important moments of our life, I have heard, are when one is born and when one finds out why. As soon as we sincerely look for the answer, we begin to expand and grow. The aim of human life, in Indian thought, is to find one’s svadharma, our unique inner law and mission and to attain this goal depends on realisation of svabhāva, our own true nature. We all have a specific role to play in the cosmic work. It is not so much what we do as what we are. The aim of life is to be and live our Truth. Read more...

Integral healing — a personal perspective

Dr. Debabrata Sahani

Healing is not just a phenomenon confined to physician, patient and hospitals. Rather, it is an experiential reality of our very existence where survival and growth is always associated with injury and imbalance. This article explores few practical means which can be a part of our daily life.

Above all, it invites the reader to start the journey towards health and harmony — right now. Read more...


Dying every single day

Mira Prabhu

Mental Health

What’s the one thing we humans can never ever get back? Yes, it is time, precious time. To bring this awareness sharply to mind, Buddhists teach a simple three-point meditation on the inevitability of death: 1) that death is certain; 2) that the time of death is uncertain; and 3) that when we die, we can take nothing with us but our state of consciousness. Practising this analytical meditation regularly can work wonders in leading us to liberation. It also gets rid of the endless crud clogging our spiritual arteries — so we can focus on our greatest passions instead of a thousand-and-one paltry affairs that won’t matter a whit as we approach the final curtain on this lifetime..
