Karuna News: Our First Newsletter!

Apr 01, 2020, 1 comments, 6 smiles Newest issue of 'Karuna Virus' newsletter is out! Since our site launch less than two weeks ago, it's been a great gift to witness so many constellations of karuna ("compassion" in Sanskrit) ignite across the globe. The grief and fear, the kindness and courage -- the liminal space between fragility and possibility in our shared human predicament -- has never felt more alive. In this inaugural issue, karuna manifests in the form of college students delivering groceries to elders, the familiar curiosity of penguins in uncharted territory, doctors filling shortages beyond their native nation, paramedics of different faiths united in serving humanity, and one man's guiding question: "When fear and othering are the norms, how might we act with love in the time of corona?"

Just One Ripple From Hyderabad :)

Oct 26, 2018, 15 comments, 24 smiles One of my favorite sacred spaces in the world is Kanha. On the outskirts of Hyderabad, it is the epicenter of the Heartfulness movement, where more than 40 thousand people convene to meditate together, at least four times a year. Few weeks back, 1700 meditation trainers came together for their own three-day retreat -- and Nipun, Meghna, Parag, Swara, Nisha, Drishti, and Rohit were invited to share the ServiceSpace magic. And it was pure magic. On the very first day itself, Daaji -- with whom even just a few minutes is considered a great blessing by many around the globe -- went on a walk with a few of them. They spontaneously spent five hours together! It was just one magical moment after another, in the subsequent days, as all these energies came together. I'm sure you'll hear more about all the ripples in a subsequent post. Here's a few visuals ... Read Full Story

Inspiring Kindness Act

May 21, 2018, 1 comments, 10 smiles Inspiring kindness act: https://www.facebook.com/nasdaily/videos/1043371802481638/ This is not Airbnb. This is AirbnFree! :) After months of work furnishing, I'm happy to open the doors to my apartment to you and YOUR friends on the Internet watching this. Here is the backstory and how you can visit: 4 months ago or so, I visited مدينة روابي Rawabi City in Palestine and was so impressed that I made my first ever investment there on a 2 bedroom apartment with a beautiful view. The idea behind the purchase is to promote more people to come to Palestine and see it in person (not just Rawbai, but around it too) and the least I can do is offer my place to stay. But as is the case with every country in conflict, the picture is incmplete without the other. In this case, Israel. My initial thought was to buy another apartment there but it's insanely expensive and I almost never do any ... Read Full Story

A Gathering Of The Tribe

May 12, 2018, 9 comments, 11 smiles [A beautiful story titled "A Gathering of the Tribe", from Charles Eisenstein’s book “The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible".] Once upon a time a great tribe of people lived in a world far away from ours.
