Notes on counselling

The unborn spirit and the Self of eternal light

Dr. Soumitra Basu

A deviation from the ideals of one’s life can be very distressing. A search for its cause by probing repressed materials is incomplete as the whole story of life is not scripted in the Freudian unconscious and even extends to the cosmic consciousness. Sri Aurobindo’s epic Savitri offers valuable insights to tide the crisis. An identification with the ‘unborn spirit’ can bring one in touch with the consciousness of eternity that surpasses karma. Besides, the human being is a delegate of eternity and is thus accompanied, even in deviation, by the ‘Self of eternal light’ which can always illumine and uplift. Read more...

A review of folate status in diet and DNA methylation with an explanation by nutrient-gene interaction

Subhasree Ray

Dr. Alok Pandey

integral psychology article

Death means much more than the cessation of bodily life. It raises several issues within the mind of the person who faces it.

This part has been written mainly with a view to the common questions that those in the grips of a difficult, 'incurable', terminal illness often ask. The questions have been culled from the actual reaction from real people. They may not cover all issues but are meant to touch upon some of the main issues that spring up in our encounter with death.
