I have slowly come to understand that deep peace and and a strong, long-lasting happiness in life grows only from a solid spiritual practice. If we can follow a spiritual practice every day that reflects and follows the laws of time, nature and the universe, then our ability to be happy in life will increase. We begin to generate the strength to be happy. And if we so desire, if we are so inclined, we will also be blessed with spiritual gifts and insights too. I have learned all this information from Dr. Torsunov, a spiritual teacher of Vedic knowledge that I respect deeply and I am happy to share it with you today. There is so much information available in Russian and not as much available in English, so I hope to be able to share with you some of the things I come across in English for those of you who are interested in this form of spiritual wisdom.
According to the Vedas, we can live our lives under three main influences. We can live under the influence of ignorance and degradation, the influence of passion (how the majority of people live), and the influence of benevolence. This is a blog post on the principles of benevolence and some of the fundamentals of what it means to live a benevolent life.
Oh, how I wish I would post in my blog more! Early morning is usually the time I am most inspired to spend time on writing for my blog, but I always (sadly) decide that it would be better for me to channel that energy on studying instead. And so I do. And then by around 7pm I’m too mentally tired to write But anyway, I am so happy to be here tonight!
