Joy comes not from becoming but from Being, not from Doing but from Undoing, not from getting but letting go!

Life’s challenges brings one towards introspection, observation and contemplation. One ponders “Who Am I?, Why Am I here?” etc. It is through a committed and disciplined spiritual practice that one experiences inner transformation.

The more you know yourself, the more awareness of Life there is! Self realization has no end, no beginning and no middle. It is not a goal, or target to achieve or attain but the experience of the endless Ocean of Consciousness.

Most Blissful Ones! You were born with nothing and will not take anything with you when you are gone. The only thing you have with you is your inner joy, inner wisdom, and inner silence. No one gave it to you. Take hold of this and experience your innermost being- that is the goal and that is the purpose, nothing else!
~ Shylesh
Yoga is an intimate and mystical love affair with the invisible and unknown to make it visible within! Om Shanti, Shanti, Shantihi!
~ Shylesh
Life is a desire to realize for certain, who we are, our purpose here, what the universe is, and what is the significance of the brief drama of life and death that we play out against the backdrop of eternity
