What is the difference between religion and spirituality (dharma/imán)?
 "Becoming a Neohumanist" is a new book  in which Neo-Humanism is explained through the original quotes of Shrii Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar in a question and answer format.

“One thing should be remembered: Dharma (righteousness) and religion – or “Imán” and “majhab” in Arabic – are not synonymous. Throughout the ages, Dharma or Imán has been propagating teachings to unite humanity.* Religions are many, but Dharma is one, and that Dharma is Manava (Human) Dharma – a system for the attainment of the Supreme. Based on practical wisdom and logical faith, Dharma is a rational approach for the realization of Absolute Truth. External paraphernalia are not required for the practice of Dharma: the only prerequisite is a unit mind. Within Dharma there is no room for exploiting people entrapped in the snare of blind faith, and no scope for self-aggrandisement or the pursuit of group interests. Love, freedom and equality are its foundation stones.

Lemon Coconut Icebox Cookies
Here it is, the Lemon Coconut Cookies that are to die for (and no eggs!). The greatest thing to this recipe is that you can make the dough, roll it into the logs, and freeze them. Months down the road when company is "dropping" in, you can slice and bake them and be a hit. The lemon and coconut are a fabulous taste combination. . (Read More)

Ananda Sutram

1-5 Pravrttimukhii saincarah gun'adha'ra'ya'm.

pravrtti = desire, movement towards crudeness mukhii = towards saincarah = proper movement gun'a = binding principles, attributes, qualities dha'ra'ya'm = in the flow Saincara (in the Cosmic Cycle) is the gradual extroversial movement under the increasing influence of the gun'as (binding principles).

Emanuele Antola Foundation is a Swiss Foundation listing several service projects that need support. Among them we have chosen one from Thailand.

The innate characteristic of the sentient principle is prajiṋá or intuition; that of the mutative principle is pravrtti or assimilation of mundane objects, while that Of the static principle is inertness. With the cultivation of the non-painful propensities the mutative force is gradually transformed into the sentient force. Ultimately, the mutative and static citta dissolve into the powerful sentient citta. 5 July 1959 DMC, Jamalpur From “Cognitive Force and Psychic Practice”Subháśita Saḿgraha Part 8

When He went away to a distant place,
tears of affection overflowed in my eyes.

In the end, my dear Companion
had made me understand,
our secret love for one another.

Tell me, tell me, have You forgotten all that?

He never came afterwards,
He did not speak a word.
Has He forgotten my inner pain?

But I am unable to forget His memory,
which still is stirring my mind.

Should I remember or not,
with what floral garland
He had tied me?
