Ahimsa is a concept that has been promoted in most forms of spirituality for millennia. The word ahimsa embraces the concept of non-violence and compassion. Ahimsa was written about extensively in the yoga sūtras of Patañjali around 400 CE . Ahimsa is the first of the yamas – self restraints – in yogic philosophy. On the surface this concept of non-violence advocates refraining from physically harming another human out of malice. Ahimsa, the concept of not causing physical harm seems straight forward when we talk about murder, rape, shooting, stabbing, torture and punching. However, there are mixed beliefs about violence as it applies to appropriate self defense or even defensive war. As we know in this Kali yuga, times can get wild, unpredictable and dark. This is the time more than ever to guide our actions and thoughts towards peace.
As my life changes, my vision does too. Lakshmi has risen now in plain view. I offer my poems and music to you. As you churn the ocean of life, may the embodiment of Lakshmi emerge, granting you love, beauty, health, radiance and prosperity.

Through purification, the inner light Sat-Chit- Ānanda is revealed. Relinquish mental mutations, withdraw the senses from outer chaos. Abandon all fetters that imprison one’s mind to suffering and separation. Retreat silently into the Hridaya, the seat of the Soul deep in the chest. Dig down deep in ecstatic search for the ultimate love, peace, bliss and truth – Sat-Chit- Ānanda. Focus upon the Holiness within your every cell. Call out the names our Lord, worship and praise till the light of God bursts from your heart like rays of the sun. The Lord is the silent witness, best friend and beloved. Awaken this awareness and sip the nectar of the of the stainless Self.
Purification and alignment of the chakras can be achieved once a person learns how the physical body, emotions and subtle anatomy interact. Selecting new patterns, activities, thoughts and emotions can create incredible, long term multidimensional transformation in one’s personal life, relationships, professional life, spirituality, future generations and beyond. Change starts with us. As we heal ourselves, we can help heal others and begin healing the world.

It was an honor to be featured on Dharma Warrior TV to discuss my devotional art, music and latest article “Bhakti: The Most Sacred Love”.
Bhakti is to love for love’s sake and surrender to Divinity. “Bhaj” is to adore or worship God. The beautiful indescribable path of devotion cultivates a transformative peace, stability of mind, strength and inspirational bliss. Bhakti is much more than singing or chanting the Holy names.

” Forgive everyone who has caused you pain. Forget everything. Love everybody in the same way; whether a person is big, small or no longer there. Give the same love to everyone. Do not discriminate with your love. The moment you do that, it creates hurdles you must cross and broken bridges that are difficult…
Your first step towards spirituality is seeing One inside yourself, and that One inside you, is the One inside everyone else. Take care of your own self, and take care of everything around you and everything connected to you. When you love yourself in a way that you love the One, you love the One that is inside everyone.

Gratitude is the act of focusing on what we are grateful for and what we appreciate. In the attitude of gratitude, we shift our perceptions intentionally to the vibration of being thankful.

“Soul releases prakruti
Prana dances back to smriti
When’s our time, we never know
Till light it shines a brilliant show
Transcending flight into beauty
Creating space for new found duty
Fix the mind on God, each day, each breath
Find the space of God, each step, each death
See the face of God, each smile, each frown
Be the light of God, each life, each crown.”
