'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

(HH Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda)

MenoSunday; Life Lived Lovingly

Back on May 1st, there was rather a lengthy contribution to this page; the essentials of CeL laid out in the Samskritam tradition, radiating universality. Aside from Bhakti itself, it was pointed out the part played by Karma (action), Jnaana (Knowledge) and Raaja (discipline). The little film here today demonstrates how one young fellow, a knowledgeable and disciplined kayaker having much Love - and respect - for Nature and for his fellow human beings, who wished to bring to them some fresh experience and build their character and the appreciation of their world..... and how the heart can ache for the lack of Love and respect with which such surroundings are treated in some quarters. Ultimately the conclusion is to make the most of the present, the future will be what it will be.

For those of you who are keenly interested in environment and decisions made around and within it, particularly in reference to the film just watched, this article is a powerful read.


  1. If we could all work hard to live the best lives we could in the present, the future for the planet and everything in it would be so much better.

  2. We think LOVE and RESPECT are very VERY much impawtant fur Mental and Physical HEALTH and WELL BEING.

  3. I suspect our society, at least in this country, is so busy "doing" and "accomplishing" that we forget about our imprints and the importance of being. At least in these most recent years there is a growing awareness of joining with the earth.

  4. I have been encouraged to meet several Chinese students studying various aspects of environmental science at Aberdeen University, and can only hope that some of them can take home the message that it is better to work with and preserve the natural environment as far as possible, rather than seeking to dominate it.
    Cheers, Gail.
