Start where you are

Don’t you see all this is self-deception? You don’t have to start with a bang but what prevents you from investing half an hour from your daily routine? What? People get heart disease, people get obese, not because they are not exercising 24 hours, people get heart disease because they do not exercise even for half an hour. Don’t you see what that half an hour means? It means your life. And when I am saying heart, take it as a euphemism.

Start where you are, your start does not have to be according to your expectations, it does not have to be heroic, it does not have to be spectacular, it just has to be a start. Start and let things flow from there. You never know how many roads branch out from the first step.

But waiting for something grand, we never start out at all. Does that not happen? Waiting for that fabulous holiday, we do not allow the mind to experience a certain inner vacation at all. The entire year we remain tense in expectation of the year-end vacation. Why can’t you have your little vacations every day? What prevents you?

I don’t want to get to the extent of saying that every moment can be a vacation. It can be probably, but it would stretch your imagination. And you will experience a horrible pain that how can every moment be a vacation. But why can’t you have half an hour of vacation every day? We don’t even allow ourselves that much.

You don’t need knowledge to help kids, you need freedom from knowledge. This is knowledge that you need knowledge. Be free of this knowledge.

Each one of us deserves the Truth. So, we made a conscious choice: to keep our work open for all, regardless of whether they can afford to donate.

A tremendous body of our work – around 10,000 videos, 3000 articles, and more – has been made freely available to all on the internet. Just one piece of statistic to put in perspective the magnitude of our charitable work: Around a million minutes of video content is consumed daily by our viewers on YouTube alone, absolutely for free.

This would not be possible without financial contributions from our audiences, who support our work from around the world.

We have upheld our independence in the face of the disintegration of genuine spirituality – with more and more contemporary spiritual content being just disguised commercialism, consumptionism, and egoism. We refuse to belong to any lineage or tradition, we refuse to identify with any ideology or community, nor do we pander to base sentiments to gain followership or financial assistance. This enables us to freely say the truth without inhibition.

Your financial support has meant we can continue to keep bringing you the truth and the undiluted essence of the scriptures. You have supported our independence, and we are grateful.

We need your support so we can keep bringing the truth to you. Any amount contributed by you towards our noble cause is valuable.

We need your support so we can keep bringing the truth to you. Support us from as little as $5 – it only takes a minute.

Donate via PayPal:

(In multiples of $5)

$5.00

Or, you can donate an amount of your choice directly at our website.
