    Our Life is a Dream – Wake Up!

    The ancient texts of yoga wisdom share that, in one sense, The world we live in is an illusion or like a dream.

The wisdom of the sages of the Srimad Bhagavatam is the way to do it.  (covers Srimad Bhagavatam 1.1.1-1.1.3)

    Human Life is Meant For Inquiry Into the Absolute Truth

    Raghunath & Kaustubha discuss the answer to the big question by the sages, "How can people find complete satisfaction of the self?" The answer is pure devotion. They also discuss that human life is meant for inquiry into the absolute truth, that knowledge and detachment come automatically with bhakti, that much of the yoga (asana) in the West, as well as America in general, could benefit from some sattva guna, the slippery slope into tamas, and recalibrating on Mondays.
