Pranaam and prostrations to Lord Ganapathi
Sāndeepa means “Light of the evening: Brightest flame” or “Sandhyā” – A spiritual quest to see the Light of Lights residing in one’s Heart.
Sāndeepa is a spiritual journey to Self-Realization through the teachings and experiences of Rishis, Great Masters and Gurus. Sāndeepa is a free online library and book community to help a seeker understand the philosophy of Existence, Self-Enquiry and Self-Surrender through stories, teachings, experiences and biographies.
Sāndeepa is a collaborative effort of two authors to try to understand the purpose of one’s existence and how to spend time in a manner deemed appropriate and fit by the Supreme Creator from the moment of one’s creation till one’s inevitable demise as is the Law of Nature.
This same thought has been reflected in the legendary Yaksha Prashna, a battle of wits between Yudhishthira and Yamarāja in the guise of a yaksha in the Mahabharata where, Dharmarāja Yudhishthira is asked what is the most amazing thing/phenomenon in this universe to which He replies, “A man who thinks he will live forever when death is staring at his face”.
