Animal instincts

The animal species have been observed to have some ESP instinct about the world.
The pup is abandoned by the mother, but the pup just learns to survive, with not much effort at all, figures out what to eat, how to eat, how to breathe, how to swim, where to migrate, and how to migrate back to its place of birth etc. The behavioral patterns are ingrained in the instinct, with seldom any confusion.

What about humans? Do we have similar instincts? What happens if we just relied on pure instincts? Would our lives be different? The absolute same? Any other species that observed us, may very well say the same.

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!
