    A well-researched and beautifully written article, especially for the Meditators and Spiritual aspirants so that they may study and explore the subjective, objective and neural realities within themselves.

    Beauty in simplicity! You have explained karma- As you sow So shall you reap .. so well We make our own destinies by our thoughts words and deeds…. Well researched and written for any layperson to understand easily Keep up your good work! Best wishes

  • Natasha Malhotra

    So informative and inspiring ! Thank you.

  • Arish sahani

    Many millions in this world are suffering today, only because when born no one is telling them why and how their birth is based on past life. If you are born in a poor household, or in the family of criminals, it is all due to previous karma. Only when the government and leadership takes responsibility of education of the new born in each nation we can expect a better future for all. This kind of change is possible.

  • Prerna Daswani

    Great explanation of karma! Especially the East vs. West comparison and the 4 planes. Didi Krishna provided a great analogy that highlights karma's empowering side: you control your destiny through choices. Like cause and effect, karma applies to nations too. The focus is on learning from mistakes and making better choices, shaping your future!

  • Aparna Dedhia

    "It's the profound bond he cultivates with his audience that truly sets him apart. Beyond merely appreciating his music, people form a deep connection with him. I can attest to this firsthand. During our visit to Amritsar in 2017, taxi drivers spoke warmly of his genuine and humble demeanor, as well as his philanthropic endeavors. They say taxi drivers are the pulse of a city and its people, and on that day, I too felt a surge of admiration for Daljit Dosanjh, a sentiment that has only grown with time."

  • Dishita

    Opens the eyes, Didi Krishna! Karma being empowering and not punishing….fear goes away from it now.

  • Abha Kapoor

    Karma says β€˜ if you focus on hurt you will continue to suffer , if you focus on the lesson you will continue to grow β€˜. That was a deep dive into Karma @ashishVirmani ! Thank you for a wonderfully encapsulated version of this complex concept..

  • Nisha JamVwal

    Incredible Great work @ashish Virmani I found this so well researched and articulated Proud of you and your in-depth journey into karma

  • Sunil Trikha

    A good read about the new book " Own your body". Thanks Navni Chawla for this article. Hope it will definitely prompt every reader to buy the book and become more aware about one's physical health.

  • Kahini Arte-Merchant

    While the West uses Karma as the _effect_ The actual meaning of karma is the _cause/ deeds (in thought, word and action)

  • Ashish Kailashnath Tiwari

    The most important Karma that every individual needs to understand and accept in life πŸ‘‰πŸ» Prarabdha Karma: It is a portion of the Sanchita karma being lived out in the current life. The part that shapes our present circumstances and experiences.

  • Shashi Kapoor, Gurgaon, India

    I have gone through your political polarization article, and found it balanced and full of sanity, capturing the moods of people of the two largest democracies in the world going through the elections. Yes, most of us get carried away by the charisma of our favorite leaders. Thanks for instilling the need to bring sanity & be open to listening to the other side’s viewpoint. It also seems that educated people and with better exposure to the world around are forming independent opinions and do not get carried away by patriarchal thoughts. I have gone through some other contents of the Lotus magazine & found it very impressive. Kudos.

  • Poonam Chawla

    Good job. Keep bringing good articles we love to read.

  • ANIL BHATNAGAR

    Our beliefs become our psychological selves. The heated reactions are expressions of attempts of psychological antibodies to protect that psychological self. Experiments prove that when the data is provided for a neutral topic that people are not emotionally attached with, they can figure out what is right or wrong with sound logic and mathematical calculations. However when we provide the same data (same statistics) on gun control, abortion, or on a religious matter, people conclude in the direction that proves their beliefs. The rational brain stops working (or starts overworking) when it comes to protecting our beliefs. When we do so, most of the time we are not aware of our bias...its our unconscious bias that is at work.

    That’s so sweet Davinder ji, I am grateful:))

  • Renu Chopra

    Political polarization is a big issue that I have seen many people dealing with . My own neighbors avoid talking politics at their homes to maintain sanity. We are always trying to put forth our view point without listening to what the other person has to say. Very well written and there is a need for such articles in today's day and age that make us look into ourselves, so we can respect everyone's view point.

  • Davinder Kumar

    This is so well-researched and thorough. it seem so effortless, but I know you must have worked hard on this. Very well written

    Exceptionally well-written piece Navni ! Thoroughly impressed by the depth of insight and clarity of expression throughout. It's evident that a lot of thought and effort went into crafting such an engaging piece. Well done!

  • Brijesh Mistry

    Very well written essay. Fully agree that in today's world of social media and virtual reality, children are losing the importance of family values particularly silent sacrifices made and sufferings endured by a mother while their upbringing. They should understand the role played by the mother in their overall development and should not take her for granted. One should understand as to why one remember one's mother whenever he/she faces any problem/challenge.

  • Shalini Gulati

    There are books that one skims through and puts away , and those that are a one-time read ….then there are those one is pulled back to, again and again, for all the easy learnings and the simple wisdom that they hold . This book definitely falls in the last category, going by your review, Raji, and what I have read of it . It also seems to have been dropped into my lap by the all-knowing Universe, to show me the way out of a current personal crisis ….and I am grateful indeed for that . Thank you, Raji , for a truly splendid summary of this superlative book !

  • Punita Sachdeva

    Raji , you have truly brought out the essence of the book so beautifully. The book itself and your review are gems to guide all on the path of growth.

  • saroj dubey

    Thank u so much Raji Menon Prakash ji for this lovely review and tribute to Rx for Resilience. I was deeply moved and touched when u mentioned how the book helped u step back from your worry regarding your husband's biopsy. I think that's the biggest compliment to me as a writer. I am overjoyed that u felt compelled to share your review in the form of this lovely article 😊

    ONLY SANATAN DHARMA CLAIMS WE ARE BORN AGAIN AND AGAIN. ONLY SANATAN DHARMA CLAIMS YOUR NEXT BIRTH DEPENDS ON LAWS OF KARMA. GARUDA PURANA TALKS ALL ABOUT MANY BIRTHS. IT'S SHAME WE HUMANS LIVE AND DIE AND OUR LEADERS AND SCIENTISTS DO NOT SPEND TIME TO RESEARCH. WHY IN ONE FAMILY ONE CHILD HEALTHY, OTHER SICK, ONE RICH OTHER POOR. ONE HONEST AND OTHER LIAR. THESE ARE GREAT ISSUES. IT'S TIME MEDIA SHOULD TAKE THIS ISSUE SERIOUSLY AS THIS KNOWLEDGE CAN SOLVE MANY HUMAN PROBLEMS AND HELP RESHAPE OUR ACTS. I REQUEST EACH HUMAN BORN SHOULD QUESTION HIMSELF AND HERSELF WHY I AM POOR AND SICK, OR RICH, ETC. ANSWER WILL COME, YOUR LIFE IS BASED ON PAST AND CURRENT KARMA GOOD AND BAD.

  • Sunil Trikha

    Dear Navni Chawla, Thank you for your endeavour to explore the excerpts from the inexhaustible reservoir of Swami Veda's wisdom. I wish a column could be created, if possible, to make a series of his teachings in systematic manner ! Every article of "alotusinthemud" is a lotus in the mud. And we all are enjoying it. Best wishes !

    Thank you dear Sunil sir for your genuine feedback and appreciation laced with gentle warmth and love :))

  • Sunil Trikha

    Thanks dear Navni Chawla with another article after your first one "Stressed? Find your zen with cow therapy". More so because you have written it all, out of your own personal experience and by not hearing any hearsay. Such articles exude an air of authenticity. And the best part is that you have not advocated your readers to go through this experience. But at the same time, your detailed account and expression of the transformation that you have gone through during these 10 days, speaks volumes of the intensity of Vipassana practice. Thanks Navni Chawla ! Waiting for many more articles from you !

    It is a masterly piece detailing why Indians care and worship cows. In fact we treat cows as our own mother

  • Vaidya Suneet Aurora

    No doubt cows are said to have and give motherly love. The indian tradition of 'gau sewa' and the ayurveda view of treating diseases with cow milk, urine and dung are great. In return, we give very less to these animals. Good thought provoking article, Navni. Acknowledgements and wishes.
