Today’s Inspiration … from the Upanishads

“A man becomes good by good works, evil by evil.”  Brihadaranyaka Upanishad. 3. 2.13

Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4:4.3-7 continues  giving more detailed concepts and goes on to explain the concept as follows:

“When a caterpillar has come to the end of a blade of grass, it reaches out to another blade, and draws itself over to it. In the same way the soul, having coming to the end of one life, reaches out to another body, and draws itself over to it.

“Just as a goldsmith, having taken a piece of gold, makes another form, new and more beautiful, so also, verily the Atman having cast off this body and having put away Avidya or ignorance, makes another new and more beautiful form” (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad).

“As people act, so they become. If their actions are good, they become good; if their actions are bad, they become bad. Good deeds purify those who perform them; bad deeds pollute those who perform them.

“Thus we may say that we are what we desire. Our will springs from our desires; our actions spring from our will; and what we are, springs from our actions. We may conclude, therefore, that the state of our desires at the time of death determines our next life; we return to earth in order to satisfy those desires.

“Consider those who in the course of many lives on earth have become free from desire. By this we mean that all their desires have found fulfillment within the soul itself. They do not die as others do. Since they understand God, they merge with God.

‘When all the desires clinging to the heart fall away, the mortal becomes immortal. When all the knots of desire strangling the heart are loosened, liberation occurs.

“As the snake discards its skin, leaving it lifeless on an anthill, so the soul free from desire discards the body, and unites with God who is eternal life and boundless light.”

Katha Upanishad 6.1-5, 10-11, 13-16

“The tree of eternity has its roots in the sky, and its branches reach down to earth. It is God; it is the immortal soul.

The whole universe comes from God; his energy burns like fire, and his power reverberates like thunder, in every part of the universe. In honor of God the sun shines, the clouds rain, and the winds blow. Death itself goes about its business in fear of God.

If you fail to see God in the present life, then after death you must take on another body; if you see God, then you will break free from the cycle of birth and death. God can be seen, like the reflection in a mirror, in a pure heart.

When the senses are calm and the mind is motionless, then your heart is pure; you have reached the highest state of consciousness, in which you are unified with God. If this state of consciousness is firm and secure, so it can never be broken, then you are free.
To calm the senses and still the mind, you must abandon the self. You must renounce ‘I’ and ‘me’ and ‘mine’. You must suppress every desire that surges around the heart. You must untie every knot of attachment.

A hundred and one lights radiate from the heart. One of them shines upwards to the crown of the head. This points the way to immortality. Every other light points to death.”

“Like corn, does a mortal ripen; like corn, does he spring to life again” (Kathopanishad).

Happy Birthday, Ganesha Ji!!

The most important day of the year to clear obstacles in your life is Ganesha’s birthday. This is a very special time that happens once a year, when Ganesha will take on your karma, and dissolve all obstacles that lie in your future. All rituals and prayers to Ganesha become tremendously magnified during this time, and we have put together 3 packages to help you take advantage of this special power time.


The elephant head of Ganesha has a tremendous amount of importance because the elephant is associated with Supreme Intelligence. That’s why Ganesha is represented as the Isha, the Lord or the General of the Ganas (Angels).

Ganas are Super-intelligent beings. These are the soldiers in Heaven and they have a tremendous amount of psychic powers. They don’t fight wars like we do with nuclear weapons. They do it with psychically driven weapons.

He is the head of all these soldiers with psychic powers, so you can imagine the kind of intelligence that Ganesha possesses.

The worship of Ganesha represents acquisition of psychic powers and Supreme Intelligence.

Why the elephant head? The elephant is the most intelligent animal according to Indian scriptures and also according to Aristotle. He said that no animal is more intelligent or smarter in wit than the elephant. Aristotle said this long before scientists found out the importance of the elephant brain compared with the human brain like is happening now.

Worshiping Ganesha on his birthday every year has tremendous significance for everyone wanting to develop their intelligence.

Ganesha, Custodian of Intelligence, can give you shortcuts so that you don’t have to grope in the darkness.

That is what Ganesha does.


Never Underestimate the Power of Divine Archetypes like Ganesha!

Archetypes are able to help us in our day to day life. They have a higher intelligence. They can inform us and warn us of dangers ahead of time and give us a better intelligence. Ancient Scientists of different cultures understood Archetypes and used them in their daily lives.

Obstacles Are Standing Between You & Success

Obstacles are the karmic road blocks we experience in life, interwoven into the very fabric of our destiny. They are responsible for the hardships we face, especially delays, and setbacks, as well as frustration and failure. Ultimately, they block success, both materially and spiritually, and if they are not removed, they make it nearly impossible to reap the fruits of your efforts no matter how hard you try, or how well-intentioned you may be. The Archetype Ganesha, however, has the solution.

The Archetype Ganesha is a universal one that can be found in many cultures all over the world. He is sought by regular people, Mystics, and even by the Gods for his unique ability to both foresee and remove all known and unknown obstacles that lie in the future. Ganesha has the power to take your karma and transform it to ensure an utterly successful and prosperous future. He can give you the ability to enjoy effortless success and unimpeded growth in all areas of your life.
