And true to the voice in the desert, they begin to plot till dusk With a myriad of questions from resurrection to taxes, They […]

When you have a social engagement with someone and you call to ask where they are and they say, “I am en route,” they obviously haven’t even left, right? We all know that one person who continually arrives at the office late and disheveled, tie in one hand, a comb in the other – first […]

When we are driven by ego and fear, our natural disposition is to seek control over people and situations.

Colloquially, the term ‘ego’ is used to refer to a person’s sense of self-esteem or self-worth. To put it simply, it is a person’s self-image – who they think they are and who they would like others to think they are. It is the part of us that drives us to dress, speak, walk and […]

While with the ascetics, Siddhartha spent a great deal of time and effort numbing his senses and denying himself the human experiences of hunger and contentment, pain and pleasure, desire and fulfilment.

The purpose of life is to gain the human experience and make peace with it. Once more, while pondering this discontent, rumours of a holy man, the Buddha named Gotama reached the Samanas in the village. It is interesting to note that even though the man was the Buddha, the holy of the holy, the […]

When Siddhartha’s discontent had grown to an almost frenzy, the stars aligned in his favour and a group of Samanas (ascetics – people who practiced a ruthless form of self-denial and discipline) passed through his town while on a pilgrimage.
