What good are our spiritual practices if the world is not benefiting from our spiritual work or progress?
When people ask Swami Veda Bharati, “Swamiji, am I progressing in my spiritual practice?” Swami Veda would answer: “Don’t ask me; ask your spouse, ask your children, ask your colleagues, and ask your neighbors.”
It does not matter how deep our meditation is if the world is not benefiting from it and if we are not creating a harmonious, peaceful planet.
Whole Hearted: Applied Spirituality for Everyday Life is a compilation of Swami Veda Bharati’s writings, which have been edited for today’s Western audience. It is a practical guide full of wisdom for daily interactions, communications, and behaviors in our personal or professional lives.
A must read for all…

Since the mind is multihued, the letters of the Sanskrit alphabet are called varna. The word ‘varna’ means colour. I wish you the colours of the letters of all mantras to dye your mind.
