"The Name of Lord Rama is the greatest purifier of the heart. It wipes away all one's sins. Not only this, but it wipes away the sinful tendencies as well. The Name is sweeter than the sweetest of objects. It is the haven of peace. It is the very life of pure souls. It is the purifier of all purifying agencies. It quenches the consuming fire of worldly desires. It awakens the knowledge of God. It bathes the aspirant in the, ocean of divine bliss. Glory to Sri Rama and His Name!.......
None but the righteous can be truly happy. None but he who has the correct sense of duty and the will for its implementation can be said to live worthily. One must be imbued with a definite conviction about the supremacy of moral principles, ethical values and spiritual ideals. These ought to guide one's day-to-day actions and serve as powerful means for the culture of the human personality. That is the purpose of life. That is the way to Self-realisation. That is the message and the mission of Lord Rama's Life on earth......- Swami Sivananda << More>>
Surrender and activity do not conflict with each other, but
are part and parcel of a total act of spiritualising yourself
completely, stepping aside and asking God to take over. If God
takes over, everything is under control, everything is working
perfectly. If we are there, nothing is under control—mind is not
under control, senses are not under control, everything is
upside down. When you put yourself under the will of God and His
wisdom teachings, then you are a self-controlled person. You
will not allow the senses to do whatever they wish or the mind
to do whatever it wishes. You will only do that which is in
accordance with the will of God, the teachings of God and the
saints. If it is not in consonance with the will of God and the
teachings of the saints, you will not do it." - Swami
Yoga Learning from a book "Yoga, A way of life" by Sri Swami Adhyatmananda
Yoganidra is a prolonged Shavasan that leads to relaxation and finally establishes in meditation. It is the art of conscious relaxation. It is a technique which will allow you to reach new sates of conscious awareness with acute perception of both your physical and subtle body. As you practice these techniques you will feel the flow of Prana move through physical, emotional and energetic blockages. The end result is the healing of the body and mind and the expansion of consciousness.

To those men who worship Me alone, thinking of no other, of those ever united, I secure what is not already possessed and preserve what they already possess.(9:22)
Fix thy mind on Me; be devoted to Me; sacrifice unto Me; bow down to Me; having thus united thy whole self with Me, taking Me as the Supreme Goal, thou shalt verily come unto Me.( 9:34)
He who does all actions for Me, who looks upon Me as the Supreme, who is devoted to Me, who is free from attachment, who bears enmity towards no creature, he comes to Me, O Arjuna! (11:55)
Abandoning all duties, take refuge in Me alone; I will liberate thee from all sins; grieve not. (18:66)
