Om Namah Shivay!


  1. When I first started listening to these, it was like fingernails on a blackboard. The last 2 weeks, I hunted for them on iTunes after. (Who knew?)

    Thanks again for the loan of the oil. The chemist me was surprised it works about as well as acetaminophen. (Who knew?)

  2. "That which in the beginning may be just like poison but at the end is just like nectar and which awakens one to self-realization is said to be happiness in the mode of goodness."


  3. I suppose it wouldn't hurt to read the Bhagavad-Gita, would it? Is there a translation that's particularly accessible? It's hard to know where to start, since translations of it seem as abundant as freshman chemistry textbooks. And presumably, like textbooks, some translations are better than others...

  4. The Swami Nikhilananda translation is clear and straightforward (he had been a journalist). There's one that's text-only and one with commentary.

  5. Ok, I will try it--thank you!
