S.N. Goenka: The Man who Taught the World to Meditate

S.N. Goenka: The Man who Taught the World to Meditate

Commented Sep 30, 2013 at 17:28:22 in Religion

“Thank you for writing this piece. It's an apt homage to an ordinary man who taught ordinary teachings in an extraordinary way. Goenkaji's reach was both extensive and expansive. A modern day Buddha, Gonekaji changed millions of lives, including mine.

Girl Rising: Adult Complacency Is Over

“That is an excellent post, Sir. This is the age of change and youngsters like Malala are our agents of change. Such incidents call for a systemic change, a paradigm shift in the way leaders steer a nation, in the way communities raise awareness of social issues, and in the way families guide their children. I believe the encompassing plan should treat not just the symptoms, but also strike at the heart of the disease. Change can only take place through combined ACTION. We have to address the issues at all levels -- personal, societal, governmental and global levels -- to find workable solutions. Change should be gradual, holistic, system-wide, sustainable, and ideally should include appropriate checks, balances and upgrades in place at every tier. Else, any change is ineffective.

I'm sure glad to see so many around the world take that little first step.”

Making Room for Spiritual Practice

Making Room for Spiritual Practice

Commented Dec 13, 2012 at 18:33:28 in Healthy Living

“Maggie,

I guess the theme here is mindfulness, rather than spirituality in the yogic sense. When a task is performed mindfully, i.e., with complete attention and minimal conflict, it could offer many benefits, as you have listed. Thanks for a great article.

“Dear Rob,

Wonderful reflections! Thought provoking title! Denial and defensiveness are mere roadblocks in the journey from fiction to authenticity, until you clear it using mindfulness.

“Great post. Sound advice. There's so much negativity around these days, it's hard not to get caught in it. I esp like #5. Engaging in a nourishing, nurturing activity will keep you grounded. Thanks.

“Thank you, Raji for liking my post, and finding the advice useful. I agree with you. "There is so much negativity around these days," which is why it's so important to counter it by how we spend our time and the choices we make. Engaging in a nourishing, nurturing activity will definitely keep you grounded.”

Sixth Best in the World, But is our Education System Creating an Uncompassionate Society?

Commented Dec 10, 2012 at 11:39:51 in UK Universities & Education

“Andy,

This is a fantastic post, and so in with the times. With two boys currently in high school, I wonder about their education all the time. Sure, I do what I can in a family setting in terms of demonstrating human values. Individual efforts are only a start. Inspiring change at the larger, systemic level has the power to redirect us towards a happier and a more compassionate society.

“Absolutely! I set aside at least 20-30 minutes each day for meditation, and a sizeable chunk of that time for conscious breathing. It's a joy to be able to observe the in and out breaths as they occur, not to mention the wonders it does to my focus and awareness.
Thanks for the great post, John-Roger.

Do You Feel Guilty for Your Dreams? Don't

Commented Dec 6, 2012 at 22:32:52 in Healthy Living

“Hi Danielle,

At first, I wasn't sure what you were trying to say. Then, Bam! "You are capable of holding two states of consciousness at once: presence and longing, gratitude and desire, contentment and hunger. This is what it means to become whole." All without guilt, shame or denial. Very nicely put, and I loved how you used such agonizing opposites in the same sentence AND made it work!
