this article is quite heavy and has left me with much to think about. wonderful article!


Thank you, Sally. Another beautiful and insightful piece. Words to contemplate for sure!


Dear Sally,
Always enjoy reading your articles.
One small point which i feel imp to make as Shree Krushna-being the embodiment of truth- does not actually tell Yudhisthra to lie ( some would call it a white lie>>!)- In the Mahabharata at that point in time, an elephant called Aswatthama was killed in battle. So, Yudhisthira being the embodiment of truth too , says "Aswatthma" has died....
Even then, he lost a finger because of this "white" lie (even if it was for the better cause) before going to the heavenly abode...... !


Dear Sally, thank-you for this wonderfully insightful piece on truthfulness - you have inspired me to follow in your footsteps and try a week of Satya for myself. Many blessings to you.

Hi There Wonderful and Blessed People: This article really hit home. It made me realise how many we (I) lie, fudge, ignore the real truth...add and subtract conveniently etc. It made a deep impression and a conviction to be very, very aware of speaking the truth and nothing but the truth. I've started and's a little difficult...but I'm keeping up. Thank You so very much.Keep up the fantastic work.
