An exploration of the basic questions for anyone attempting to do business in a conscious way. Is it possible to do business, make a profit, act in truth and integrity and be of genuine service all at once? In his presentation Ram Dass depthfully sheds light and answers questions on such topics as: role-entrapment, the "inner-game" of business, personal power, obsessions with "success", alienation, deepening the "bottom line," collaboration and competition, going beyond ego, the downsides of being successful, stress, change, and fear. A useful and heartful tool to anyone "doing business" in the world. (LA, CA - 1/30/1987)
In this simple and powerful introspection, Moojibaba guides us into the clear recognition of our own timeless being. “Whatever is perceivable, you are already here. You don’t have to work for peace or love, spontaneously they will manifest. All that is beautiful and pure of consciousness is already within you. Be grateful to the recognition of your own silence, your own self. It is the Lord of the universe, manifesting in each heart.”

The term “Guru Purnima” compares the guru to the full moon. The light of the full moon benefits those who are awake at night. When we even hear the phrase “full moon,” a joy inadvertently fills our heart. Without even thinking why we feel the pull to look at it and enjoy its splendour. We may even forget everything and dance. To see light in the middle of a dark night, one experiences the same relief a thirsty person feels when he drinks water. During the full moon, the tide rises to its highest point. The full moon has an attraction and magnetism that uplifts our mind. Logically or scientifically speaking, there may be other explanations, but whatever be the reason, the silvery moonlight gives joy to everyone. A guru is also like that. A realised master blesses the entire world with auspiciousness. Any association with the guru can only bring goodness and glory.
