The politics of Mahabharatha

Perhaps the politics of Mahabharatha has led to the current success...
Didn;t we all....learn it all from Ramayana and Mahabaratha.

Chicago: Barack Obama, who may become the next US president after Tuesday’s election, learnt tales of the Mahabharata from his mother and has a soft corner for the Indian American community, says a former aide.New Delhi-born Raja Krishnamoorthi, who was the policy director in Obama’s campaign for the US Senate, said Obama had a soft corner for the Indian American community.“His mother, who visited South Asia, has taught him tales from the Mahabharata,” Krishnamoorthi, now deputy treasurer in the Illinois State Treasurer’s office, said.“He likes Indian food a great deal. I remember he came over once to my parents’ house for dinner and ate the Indian food with gusto. With an Obama presidency, I would not be surprised if dal makes its debut on the White House menu,” Krishnamoorthi said

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!
