PodTalk No. 14 The long arm of Karma
In the year 1972, a woman called Linda Darby successfully pulled through an escape from the Indiana State women’s prison. Linda had been sentenced to 30 years in prison for killing her second husband and setting their house on fire to cover up the crime. https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/2020/01/11/the-long-arm-of-karma/

PodTalk No. 13 The Pink Elephant and the Power of FOCUS
What a photographer who wishes to shoot a picture usually does include aiming the camera at the subject, turning the dial to adjust the focus, confirming if the light available is sufficient for the exposure, holding the camera steady, and finally shooting. A gunman or an archer also does something similar to what the photographer does except that when he shoots, a projectile is fired out of his weapon unlike what happens in a camera. https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/2020/07/27/the-pink-elephant-and-the-power-of-focus

PodTalk No. 12 Burn Karma Through Knowledge

As a matter of fact, there are patterns which time and again, occur in everybody’s life.

Q&A about the Fundamentals of the Sanatana Dharma
This presentation contains a set of 23 questions asked by some of the visitors to this site and their respective answers from me. They are primarily the most common questions people have regarding the Sanatana Dharma, which in no way is any organised religion. It is an ancient yet rational philosophy that has evolved over many millennia thanks to the contribution of great people including highly accomplished sages, and it has been handed down to the present generation of people by our forefathers who preserved it in order for us to benefit from it. However, care needs to be taken to avoid its very essence of being nondualistic from being altered and doctored by certain groups of people and religious organisations with vested interests or due to sheer ignorance. Doing so leads to major misunderstandings about the supreme philosophy of the Advaita Vedanta, which, when translated, means the ‘Nondualistic (path) towards the end or the goal of knowledge.’ https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/2020/05/27/qa-about-the-fundamentals-of-the-sanatana-dharma/

PodTalk No. 11 Is Karma like a Snake and Ladders Game?
Q . Why don't people remember all that they learned in the previous Janma and why do they have to go through the entire learning process all over again? Q. What happens to a person who has fallen from righteousness in one Janma? Does the person have to undergo all the pains and sufferings again?  https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/snl/  #karma #bhagavadgita #krishna #gita

PodTalk No. 10 The Atman and its 'Checked Baggage'
In my PodTalk No. 06 ‘Thoughts, Desires, Passion and Lust’, I said that a thought has two parts, namely the subject and the object. The object is what or who one thinks of and the subject is invariably the false ‘I’ or the false ego which veils the real ‘I’, the ‘Self’ or the consciousness of a person. This false ego is based on the identification of the ‘Self’ with the body along with its attributes such as strength, beauty, general appearance and so on. The false ‘I’ which is seated in the mind, that I call the two-faced trickster, tricks the real ‘Self’ into believing that the false ‘I’ is the real ‘Self’.  https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/the-atman-and-its-checked-baggage/

PodTalk No. 08 Is Karmic Retribution True?
Many people believe that troubles in life are a result of Karmic retribution. Well, it is quite understandable that past Karma could be a cause for not only the bad times that one experiences in life but also for the good ones, but calling it retribution..... https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/2019/05/14/is-karmic-retribution-true/

PodTalk No. 07 Karmic 'Potholes'
Many people believe that troubles in life are a result of Karmic retribution. Well, it is quite understandable that past Karma could be a cause for not only the bad times that one experiences in life but also for the good ones, but calling it ‘retribution’, goes against the very principle of ‘Cause and Effect’.   https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/2019/05/14/is-karmic-retribution-true/

PodTalk No. 06 Thoughts, Desires, Passion and Lust
We all are aware that the Srimad Bhagavad Gita is a dialogue between Arjuna and Bhagavan Krishna. Arjuna was not only in a dilemma, but he was also under severe stress because he was unsure of what he was supposed to do. He found it difficult to decide what was righteous and what was not. What is it that causes a person to sin? SBG 3:40 “The senses, the mind and the intelligence are called the seats of lust. They cover the power of discrimination and knowledge and delude the embodied being.” https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/thoughts-desires-passion-lust/

PodTalk No. 04 Mental freedom and happiness vs mental dependence and heartaches
Almost everyone has undergone heartaches caused by someone who hurt them or left them for someone else. It could have been among school friends, colleagues, relatives or romantic couples who had sworn earlier they would never leave. From a psychological point of view, such a heartache can be said to be a result of ego, attachment and the will to possess the loved person. https://tavamithramsarvada.wordpress.com/2019/08/26/mental-freedom-and-happiness-versus-mental-dependence-and-heartaches/

PodTalk No. 03 Advice from Others - Is it Unsolicited Advice or Free Information?
When a person suggests something to you, you are actually receiving thoughts and ideas from another human being with their own education and different kinds of experience. The information or advice is all the more important when the other person is of the opposite gender!

PodTalk No. 01 Finding Peace in Marriage
When things do not go as one wishes, they tend to blame others, their fate, their natal chart, their teachers, their country and everyone as well as everything else other than themself who is the actual cause of everything. I have written in quite a few posts of mine about the three possibilities why things happen to people in life: 1. Everything is merely a coincidence and nothing has any reason whatsoever. 2. It is due to the principle of Cause and Effect or Karma 3. There is a God above who is doing all this to you. https://wp.me/p4hxbK-2qN
