Development of the Third Eye.

The Third Eye as you know, or again, maybe not, is the spiritual gateway to greater understanding leading to enlightenment through spiritual acceptance.

lives and join the community of…

100 YEARS SINCE L.N. TOLSTOY'S passing - his "Address to Americans"

Early in 1890 Tolstoy described America as "the country most sympathetic to me," suggesting sustained interest and understanding on both sides. [1] Tolstoy's most direct knowledge of America came from personal letters, occasional visitors, books by Americans, and subscriptions to several periodicals. The constant flow of letters from America often concerned religious and moral topics. Ordinary citizens as well as religious thinkers gave Tolstoy warm support for his new Christianity,…

Remembering Acharya Vinobaji-10

There was a lot of controversy and confusion over Vinobaji's view about Internal Emergency, declaired by Mrs. Gandhi in the year 1975. Vinobaji used a Sanskrit term 'Anushasan Parva' for it.

This term was meant for both, the Party in Power as well as the Opposition Parties.



Vinobaji used this term to tell the people that when…

BALANCED THINKING AND ACTIONS.

BALANCED THINKING AND ACTIONS.



The greatest need for thinking and actions to bring about Global Peace is for the individual to realize the measure of spirituality in their life. No government or dictator can stop people from developing their own spirituality. This will transform their peaceful ways to generate peace-seeking groups of non-violence to change their Country to a peaceful member of the world society and develop a transparent based democracy for all to see. People are… Continue
