All religions - the absolute same destination

Need I say any more?
very well said Ayaan, I whole heartedly agree.


Spirituality is a personal state of mind. For me, it is about connecting with the power that is beyond our reach. Being the son of a Hindu mother and a Muslim father, religion was never an issue with me.

We celebrate all festivals and visit all religious places. I have been to Sabarimala, Guruvayur, Ajmer Sharif, Siddhivinayak Temple and have performed in many churches.

My job has helped me remain connected with all religions and I know that they all have different routes, but same destination. If you are hurting someone in the name of religion or spirituality, then you are not truly following your religion. I believe in the religion of love and humanity.

You cannot make God happy by hurting someone or being offensive. I am both God-fearing and God-loving, but there has never been any pressure on me to follow any ritual. At the end of the day, you are answerable to yourself and that is why I think God is inside you.

Welcome to the spirituality blog

This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
