I do not believe that anyone can be happy in today’s world without Vedanta. It is not possible because our society is born of competition, nurtured in competition. The competition starts from the cradle! Naturally, our lot is very complex. There is a need for a cognitive change. We need Vedanta to be sane and we have to solve the problem fundamentally. That is the only way; there is no other way. Humanity has driven itself into a corner from where it has no other solution except to know ‘I am the whole.’ It is what Vedanta is.
If non-fulfilment of desires does not bother you, you are on top of them. If non-fulfilment bothers you, then the desires have got you! They are no longer a privilege. They become pressure generators. Bringing the required change to make desiring a privilege is personal reorganisation.

Prayer & Prayerful Life
A Prayer is an act, and prayerfulness is an attitude… Mature, objective response to both pleasant and unpleasant situations comes from prayerful attitude. The act of prayer serves to make one prayerful. Being prayerful, one’s response to varying situations would be effective without one being in anyway affected. This attitude also helps one to accept one’s past as well as the present situation. The more prayerful one is, the freer one becomes from guilt, hurt and from self-loath. In the wake of graceful acceptance, there is serenity.
In the very act of seeking the sought is denied because the sought is the seeker. How? Well, what one seeks basically happens to be oneself.
