Articles/ Interviews/NewsPaper Reviews and Posts of Ashok

While Ashok’s main passion is speaking, he was forced to rely on writing to communicate when he lost his voice for a year. He also began writing articles and has had many published in local newspapers and magazines on topics such as the benefits of yoga, meditation, and chanting, as well as personal values and leadership.

Reflections: Unconditional love of someone else begins with yourself

"It is easy to love when we are at peace. The challenge is to love others when we are under stress. Self-awareness and meditation help us to prevent negative reactions to stressful situations and to hold that calm, loving place."

Self-Awareness Through Yoga

"Swami Vivekananda, an Indian Spiritual Leader, defined four predominant yoga paths - Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, Jnana Yoga and Raja Yoga. By practicing any of these paths with devotion, one can realize Self. However, Swamiji said that by practicing all these four paths, one becomes a complete person."

Live More to Love More

"A loving person has traits such as presence, acceptance, kindness, patience, generosity, gratitude, honesty, forgiveness, courtesy, gentleness, humility and empathy."

McKneally says, "Love is the essence of life. There are two kinds of love. One is conditional and the other is unconditional."
