    Meditation Camp at BrahmaKumaris, Mt. Abu – Day 3
    This was the day I was really looking forward to as we were supposed to meet NikunjBhai, BK member, he joined Brahmakumaris at the age of 13 years and its been now 20 years he has been giving his services to Brahmakumaris. The morning was usual with morning meditation sessions starting at 4:00 A.M. in the morning, they term this morning meditation time as Amrut Vela. It’s been 2 days I have been practicing meditation in the morning and I am already feeling so, full of energy and enthusiasm towards life. I started feeling that I have found new meaning to life and that life has much more to offer us then actually what we have. As I have already mentioned that Raja Yoga is a mind exercise for body, mind and soul, I could sense my life moving towards more enlightened way of living, the way yogis of ancient ages used to.

    So I am back all over again to move towards the path of enlightened living through deep knowledge of human values and soul, the teachings at International headquarters of Brahmakumaris, Mt. Abu.

I was scheduled to aboard 3:00 pm Ranakpur Express train from Bandra Terminus, Bombay all the way to reach Mount Abu, a wonderful hill station in the morning 4:15 am the next day. Its just not about meditation that I was looking for, what made me really excited was the idea of learning Rajyog, which is one spiritual exercise of mind, body and soul taught here in groups. As soon as I alighted the train, I could see Brahmakumaris (BK) bus waiting to take us on the top of the hill around 5,000 sq. ft above sea level where we were supposed  [...]

    Batu Caves – Shrine Of Lord Murugan
    If one talks about the most popular Hindu temples outside India, then Batu Caves will take the first place in the list. Batu Caves are located 13 km north of the Malaysian Capital city of Kuala Lumpur.  The cave temple is dedicated to the Hindu god Lord Murugan and is visited by millions of devotees, especially during the Hindu festival of Thaipusam. The caves are a part of a limestone hill with dates back to approximately 400 million years. In historic times the caves were used as a place for shelter by the indigenous tribe knows as Temuan. Batu caves came in prominence in 1892, when K. Thambossamy Pillai installed a statue of Sri Subramania Swamy in the caves.

  • Unique Cancun City, Mexico
    Unique Cancun City, Mexico
    ‘Cancun’ sounds quite unusual and distinct one, also its meaning is as striking as the name itself. According to Mayan language, Cancun denotes ‘snakes nest.’ When I came across with this fact I conceived that this location might have derived its name as it would be filled with snakes and one could easily spot them anywhere in this terrain. However, when I toured in this destination all my pre-conceived notions turned upside down as there was nothing like this. Although, this location provides warmth over the sprawling white-sandy beaches and affords scenic views of noteworthy hotels standing tall on the captivating beaches. In addition, this place has a rich historical background, once a small fishing village with barely 120 inhabitants during the recent 1970’s, today has managed to shelter almost half million residents.  [...]
