NAMAH is a pioneer, peer-reviewed, internationally indexed body, mind and spirit journal with an integral vision looking at the influence of the spirit or soul in psychology and health.


The Hour of God

Sri Aurobindo

There are moments when the Spirit moves among men and the breath of the Lord is abroad upon the waters of our being; there are others when it retires and men are left to act in the strength or the weakness of their own egoism. The first are periods when even a little effort produces great results and changes destiny; the second are spaces of time when much labour goes to the making of a little result. It is true that the latter may prepare the former, may be the little smoke of sacrifice going up to heaven which calls down the rain of God’s bounty. Read more...

Apropos the Physical Plane of Consciousness

Dr. Soumitra Basu

It is the physical plane of consciousness that deserves first and foremost attention, as it is the basis on which the edifice of life is constructed, the very foundation which upholds life. It is the only medium through which our emotions and ideas can consolidate themselves to find expression in the manifestation. Read more...

The habit of happiness

Dian Huff Kiser


Are human beings capable of developing or increasing happiness? Do we possess the ability to create our happiness from divinely endowed inner resources? This article examines the animal aspect of the fear-flight instinct as it evolves into humanity’s conscious potential to chart a path to happiness and greater connectivity between mind and soul. Happiness need not be elusive. Even very simple steps such as smiling, laughing and being optimistic can promote inner and outer happiness. There are many habits human beings acknowledge can be developed — eating, sleeping, exercising. Happiness is one that can be most positive and life-enhancing. Read more...

Surrender Each Moment

Arul Dev

Love and only Love, above all, has the capacity to surrender. Even human love which is conditional can accelerate and release all the bonds of our littleness. The aim of surrender is a love for the Divine, an aspiration to unite with the Divine and to find Delight in the Divine doing the sādhanā within us and through us in the world. It is a dynamic path where we wholeheartedly engage with for the entirety of our life, work and relationships and offer it all to our beloved Divine. We deeply aspire for the Divine to be very ‘near us’, in each moment. We deeply aspire that the Divine graces Their presence and qualities in us and others, within our works and in the world.

Preparing and Opening the Being to the Higher Force

Dr. Monica Gulati

For a long period of time, we try to find temporary resolutions and harmonies in our life, through the tool of a half-lit ordinary mind and reason. And it does serve a purpose to our growth and understanding. But after we have been long enough in the domain of this logical-analytical mind, and after we have tried at infinite instances to find resolutions, no matter how decent or worthy, on the same level, something still feels limited, and amiss. It seems like that is the time when one can rise above the conceptual, dualistic mind, and access the calm, peace and higher Force of Consciousness above the mind. It is at such a stage that an aspiration from below rises upwards and stations the consciousness above the physical mind which is still stable, like an open, ready receptacle. Read more...
