Through meditation you transcend knowledge and experience wisdom

Spiritual Knowledge Base

FISU Spiritual Knowledge Base

Welcome to the FISU “Spiritual Knowledge Base” – Search using Category or Tag independently, or both together.

Practising Meditation regularly and putting in conscious effort in daily living are highly recommended to expedite Spiritual Unfoldment. However, the spiritual aspirant will continue to seek further knowledge to answer the questions that arise from within.

Recorded philosophical lectures which we call “Satsangs,” made by Gururaj,  Rajesh and Jasmini, act as a vast reservoir of information on many different subjects from the practical to the philosophic, from the metaphysical to the mystical and from the sublime to the divine! These act as a support and stepping stone whereby the spiritual aspirant can satisfy his quest for greater knowledge and understanding. This knowledge is like a spiritual food, digested and assimilated by the aspirant.

Knowledge is acquired and forms the basis of further enquiry. When this information is fully digested and assimilated, it becomes wisdom.

The FISU Spiritual Knowledge Base is a useful repository of information on hundreds of different subjects.

This information is also in audio downloadable form through the FISU Shop, which is also part of our Spiritual Knowledge Base. You can use the “Search” facility at the top of the page to search for the subject you require.

You’ll greatly enjoy some of Gururaj’s spiritual books that you will also find available for purchase in the FISU Shop.

The information is updated weekly, so please visit again soon!

    • The Festival of Holi helps to bring the society together and strengthen the secular fabric of India and Indian communities around the world. The festival is celebrated by non-Hindus also as everybody likes to be a part of such a colourful and joyous festival.

      Also, the tradition of the Holi is that even the enemies turn friends on Holi and we forget any feeling of hardship or resentment that may be present. Besides, on this day people do not differentiate between the rich and poor and everybody celebrates the festival together with a spirit of bonhomie and brotherhood.

      In the evening people visit friends and relatives and exchange gifts, sweets and greetings. This helps in revitalising relationships and strengthening emotional bonds between people.

      Have a holi day!

    • LONELY BUT NOT ALONE
      Loneliness is a mental state and is not the same as being alone.

      Even if you are in a crowd of people, you can still feel lonely, but you are not alone as you are in a crowded room. What you are experiencing is separation, which can be an imbalance between introversion and extroversion.

      There are different forms of loneliness from missing a partner, difficulty with friends or social circles because you do not have a partner or “I’m different”, so I do not fit in or something along these lines.

      Loneliness is very much connected with happiness which is a mental state that we have been conditioned to experience based on the values of the society in which we live. At this level, happiness has an opposite – unhappiness and is it also possible to experience both at the same moment. Therefore, this shows it is a temporary state at the mercy of exterior influences - the ups and downs of life.
      Our society tells us that happiness is being rich monetarily, to own luxurious possessions, and is based on material accumulation or wealth but we know that neither of these can give us permanent happiness.

      Through loneliness, why do we feel separate from others or society – it could be that we have lost touch with others because of our past experiences and our hurts, disappointments or insecurities.

      Furthermore, the reality is that we have lost communication with who we are. Lonely people often wrongly assume they have nothing to contribute, their opinions do not count, and they have nothing to share. Of course, this is so wrong and is just because of insecurity.

      We have become introvert – and this is a very lonely place to be as our communication abilities with others diminishes. So, even though we are in the same room, we feel alone or detached and have become introvert.

      So, first, we have to return to greater security and stability that can be done quickly with meditation. Meditation is perfect for allowing us to be re-connected with our self first, and then with the world around us including its inhabitants.

    • WHY DO WE SHUN GOOD WHEN WE FEEL BAD?
      Did you know that meditators can easily deflect negative thoughts and emotions because their minds have greater strength - an attribute of spiritual unfoldment.
      When we feel unhappy with ourselves and feel a failure or negative things are happening to us or around us, we shun good things by default.

      Once we feel sorry for ourselves, lose our confidence, or feel self-critical, we find it hard to associate with anything good or positive. Our negative thoughts attract more negative situations, and that’s why a succession of adverse events occur as we have attracted them.

      All the good things in our life we neglect or push away, like meditating - the practice that can help us most when times are difficult, restore the positive, create balance, make us feel good about ourselves again - and more so, to be objective to what’s happening around us.

      If we are caught in this scenario, let’s remind ourselves of all that’s good in our lives, bring it to the fore of our mind, and if those negative thoughts or emotions arise in our head, try to observe them objectively not giving them the attention they demand.

      Through meditation, we can deflect negative thoughts and emotions with ease from our minds – push them away. Over a period of meditation, those thoughts will be naturally refined and will become less bothersome.

      Accentuate the good, the positive - diminish the negative!
