Menosundays; Life Lived Lovingly

A couple of weeks back, I shared with you a direct insight into the world of Advaitic philosophy, that which sees All as One in the expression of Love. In earlier posts, I have mentioned that 'namaste', the more well-known Indian greeting, means 'the spirit in me is the spirit in you'. It is an acknowledgement of that basic tenet of Hindu philosophy; that there is no difference between us. For those who may have missed it, 'Hari Om' (which has several meanings) is said by those who accept the unity; it says 'you am I' or 'That Alone Is'; there is no difference. (Note the 'between us' is dropped; if we accept unity, there is no 'us'.)

Since that post, Chinmaya Mission has released a snippet of film from Gurudev's last discourse on the Bhagavad Gita, which pertains exactly to the concept. It is subtitled, so no concerns about accents.

  1. "The glory in yourself"...I really like that.
    I've always heard if you don't like yourself you cannot expect others to like you.

  2. I like the idea of acknowledging we are all connected. Perhaps if we thought more about that we could find more peace.
