Hello dear Reader,
who makes himself dependend on the arrival of this summer is lost. After the summer solstice it stays cold in Europe, even if some rays of sunshine give hope.
There is only one thing to do: To recognise who you really are. You are not the body, you are not the mind. Then the true sun of your Heart will shine.

madhukar When you use your mind to investigate then there are endless ways.

And when you use your mind then you will search in the mind, but we advise that you find the source of everything, the source of the mind.

Therefore you inquire into the I, because “I” is the first manifestation you perceive.

Madhukar, Tiruvannamalai, February 18, 2010

Russia: Important info for all who wants to attend the Satsang or Retreat in Russia: For the visa application you need an official invitation. To have it handled in time, please contact Sofya asap at sofya@madhukar.org

iPhone App: So far a search for “Advaita” in the Apple App-Store has been not very successfully. Therefore coming soon: Dive into the Heart with the holy mantra Om. The mantra Om is attributed with a great power of healing and peace, sung by the popular Advaita Guru Madhukar. Let peace into your daily life. Joy and happiness will follow.

Books
rightcontent Even in a globalised world it is not always without consequences to write about the others.

Wendy Dorninger, at the University of Chicago, has written an alternative history of Hinduism and has made herself not only friends. She points also to the other worldly side of Hinduism and does away with some of the dearest myths.

For example the notion of Hinduism was introduced by the British at the end of the 18th century. Until the 20th century the Indians identified themselves by their cast and called themselves Hindus afterwards only in contrast to other religions.

A very personal book that can give someone already familiar with India a lot of new ideas.

Wendy Dorninger: The Hindus, An Alternative History. The Pinguin Press, London 2009, 800 Pages, 26,99 EUR.

Movie
rightcontent Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was the first globalised Guru and was teaching Transcendental Meditation. The Beatles and many other celebrities were his disciples, among them David Lynch ("Twin Peaks").

The up-and-coming filmmaker David Sieveking tries to follow Lynchs traces and recipe for success against the background of his failing relation to Marie. Investigatively he gets to know the TM-Organisation and makes touching interviews with many people. A nice, enlightening movie.

Maharishi was secretary at the Jyotir Math monastery founded by Adi Shankara, one of the most important Advaita Vedanta philosophers. One of his major works, the Vivekachudamani (Crown Jewel of Discrimination), was also translated by Ramana Maharshi.

Music
rightcontent „Echoes“ – The Einaudi Collection: Pure Piano of the Heart 

Soft violins and a sparkling piano that lead ear and heart of the listener with smooth but pointed sounds into the Nothing – the melodies of  Ludovico Einaudi. And the best of all: they are well known music to us because Madhukarji plays them quite often during Satsang.

One of his favorites is track no. 4, „The Days“. We recognise the waves – uncounted waves, coming and going. With his melodies Ludovico Einaudi describes unique days which are never ending. We experience them - and have no control over them. Those days give us the „rhythm of our lives“. The flowing tones of the minimal instruments tell us about eternity.

Einaudi talks to us in a simple truth: the language of the Heart.

Single CD. Pure Satsang! EUR 12,99
