26) The Glory of Ganesha

This is an article exploring the glory of Ganesha. The exploration runs in the form of a commentary to one of the Carnatic Classical songs. I also attach a youtube link to a video in which I played the song on my flute. I hope you all will enjoy listening and reading the commentary. Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!

21) Gayatri & The Mantra

This article showers some light upon the meter of Gayatri and the mantra of Savitri, also known as Gayatri Mantra. It gives a brief introduction, meaning of the mantra and also points out some misconceptions in regard to this mantra as well as suggesting some cautionary points.

Lalita Sahasranama (Introduction)

I am going to venture into a long series of articles, on Lalitā Sahasra Nāma – The thousand names of Lalita Dēvi. This will be written in parts of 16 names per article (some times depends on the length of descriptions of the names). Such a division will give me time to condense my understanding in a systematic way and also to you, the time to assimilate my exposition. I will try to bring out the beauty that I see, as well as some esoteric points, if HER grace allows me to realize any.
