Maya-The illusion!

Hello all,

Namaste! Hope all of you had a great week where you were able to get an insight into your own Dharma-the path of your true purpose. Last week, we discussed how Dharma and Karma become inter-twined in the deeper layers. Today let us discuss the concept of Maya, the illusion called the 'material realm'. We have before discussed Maya in a modern sense of internet and social media. Today, let us analyze from a philosophical perspective. 

Material world: All of us take birth in this material world, grow up, spend our days and go back behind the curtain, who knows where. Most of us live this life from a 'very body related' perspective.

The truth of Dharma!

Hello all,

Namaste! Hope all of you had a great week where you were able to uncover another little piece of your personal truth. Last week we discussed how our own personal truth can set us free.

What is Reality?  As in this blog, we discuss the concepts from a platform of Hinduism, I am taking the concept as per Vedic Philosophy. According to Wikipedia, "In Hinduism, dharma signifies behaviors that are considered to be in accord with Ṛta, the order that makes life and universe possible, and includes duties, rights, laws, conduct, virtues and "right way of living". So, according to that Dharma becomes the right way of living.

What is the right way of living? Who decides what is the right way? Are there any premises on which Dharma stands? Does Dharma change according to the country and region one is born? How can we be sure we are practicing the right kind o…
