In my own life I allow myself to be guided by the supreme intelligence (Krishna) of the universe in which I feel trust and happiness. Personally, I consider it as being important to work on myself in freedom and in connection with that toward a world in which peace and harmony are lively themes. I am convinced that it is possible that we can prepare ourselves properly for the huge spiritual world transformation which is in front of us.
I respect all traditions of wisdom which are focused primarily on the wellbeing of all people in the world. From the highly-civilized Vedic tradition of wisdom have come many practical tools which I have tested and applied. They provide us with the instruments to powerfully deepen our inner experience of Being and to seek and develop unconditional love for others. It is my opinion that the beauty of life is treasured in these ancient values and applications.
Origin of names Kush and Narada
The Indian name Kush means: Happiness. This name appears in the epic Ramayana, in which Sri Rama and his wife Sita play the leading part. Sita receives a pair of twins with the names Lava (= Love) and Kusha (= Happines). After Rama’s passing away Kush(a), being Rama’s successor, was crowned as the king of Ayodhya.
In May 2005 Sri Vasudeva, Kush’ spiritual teacher from Trinidad & Tobago, blessed him with the spiritual name Narada. In the Vedic Tradition is Narada the messenger of the gods and is known as a great saint, astrologer and devotee of Narayana (Krishna).
