To Blog or Not To Blog

A few years ago, I was subscribed into the Ramana Maharishi Yahoo group - I enjoyed reading the postings along with others. Amongst the email clutter, it took me a few months to realize that I was not longer getting any more postings.

Turns out, the moderator just shut it and 'retired' and with the quality of postings and discussions, I wondered for a long time - why?

And I sorta got it

Too much talking and less thinking - ain't the way.
I got back to the time when a subtle truth had dawned upon me - and it was such a truth - that I felt to put it down outside my self was travesty.
I had known of this, and it was stuck in the deepest recess of my mind.
I would like to put it down here, so that I would know what it was.
But, I want to make this truth a mantra of my life and thus it will remain unsaid.
Too much talking don't do any good - just shirks away from the true purpose

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!
