Today I will open the door of my calmness and let the footsteps of Silence gently enter the temple of all my activities. I will perform all duties serenely, saturated with peace.

Understanding The Flaws In Our Character

An interior life doesn’t mean we give up activity on the outside. Right activity and learning to associate harmoniously with others are very good for us; they serve to make us more balanced. The soul, of course, is already perfectly balanced, but its expression through the ego is usually lopsided. Years ago, Master drew little caricatures to depict the abnormalities in the nature of persons whose development is unbalanced - for example, a well-developed “head” of intellect, but short, weak “legs” of will and self-control. In a sense, this is how we must look to God.

On the spiritual path we cannot run away from our abnormalities; we are brought face to face with them day after day. Our everyday activities, and especially our interrelationships with other people, very much help to bring to light what is lacking in our nature. That which irritates us most in others, that which is most difficult for us in our work, in self-surrender, in all that is asked of us on the spiritual path, is usually an indication of some flaw in our own character. Such situations will keep rubbing us until we overcome our related weakness. These disturbances occur to help us learn to see ourselves as others see us; and ultimately to see ourselves as God and Guru see us, so that we can change ourselves.

Whereas Mrinalini looked great in her all black, simple jumpsuit, Poorna shook me to the core with her’s. It’s so ghastly! In her film, Delhi Belly, Poorna sported a few Manish Arora pieces, but outside of it, I feel she lost the plot. And those booties…. OMG!

The Special Blessing That God Gives To You Alone

Each devotee’s relationship with God is unique. Certainly there can be similarities of spiritual experience: everyone can see the spiritual eye, and hear the Aum sound; feel the same Love or perceive the same Beauty; and experience the same divine realizations of truth from God. But still, each one’s relationship with God is unique. Your relationship can’t be the same as someone else’s. That is the part which you should not freely share with others, lest you lose some of the sweetness of the spiritual grace, the special blessing, that God gives to you alone.

Sonam Kapoor too was spotted at the screening of cousin Arjun Kapoor’s latest film, Finding Fanny. The beauty looked elegant in designer Payal Singhal creation. Sonam Kapoor in Geometric Print Kurta and Dhoti Skirt was looking stunning.

Sonam Kapoor in kurti with matching Jimmy Choo gold sandals styled her look so perfectly.

She completed the look with a low ponytail swept to the side, bright red lip, Mrinalini Chandra earrings, and a Gucci bag for the special screening. She is often seen in this hairstyle.

Cryptelytrops rubeus, also known as Ruby-eyed pit viper

…A group of researchers has succeeded in discovering two new species of the world’s newest pit viper in Southeast Asia. These new species have been named as Cryptelytrops rubeus, and Cryptelytrops cardamomensis.

Dr. Anita Malhotra has led over 12 years of genetic research work in collaboration with her colleagues Dr. Bryan Stuart, Professor Roger Thorpe and PhD student Mrinalini before this discovery. In an email the study co-author and molecular ecologist at Bangor University, UK, said: “The species occupy tropical hill evergreen forests in different mountainous areas in south-east Asia. In fact, they are present in Cambodia in the south-west (C. cardamomensis) and eastern (C. rubeus) mountain ranges, separated from each other by the lowland areas of the Mekong basin.”
