20 June, Richmond (B.C.). There was a parallel gathering at Vedic Culture Society in Richmond B.C. this sunday where Swami Suryendu Puri introduced to them the essence of the Vedas in form of Mission Immortality. The grandeur of the concept and the talk of simple yet mystical practices mesmerized them all. Some were amazed and entralled while few others were left totally dazed. Swami Ji told to them that the Vedas are not merely books but the experiences of enlightened saints and sages of ancient times. If we had to learn the Vedas, we will have to experience the same following their guidelines. Though every venture starts as an idea but unless that ideology is fueled by constructive thoughtprocess and brought forth to physical reality, it cannot help us much and it can never make us complete. So it is enough just to admire that eternal immortal soul whom we call God or Brahman in his own place. We rather need to connect to him identifying Him within and without. The Sun could offer a great help in this regard as He is a living sign and source of his majestic power. Though there is a proper methodology set up to connect to the Sun and through him to the divine but to start with one may meditate upon the Sun with closed eyes for around 30 minutes in the morning and also in the evening. This shall help detoxify and heal their body, purify their mind and turn it inwards and also establish a concrete connection with the immortal soul or the divine dwelling inside.
