OM Namo Bhagawate Sivanandaya!
OM Namo Bhagawate Chidanandaya!
OM Namo Narayanaya!
Sri Hanuman Jayanti (April 4, 2015)

Hanuman was the living embodiment of the power of Ram-Nam. He was an ideal selfless worker, a true Karma Yogi who worked desirelessly. He was a great devotee and an exceptional Brahmachari or celibate. He served Sri Rama with pure love and devotion, without expecting any fruit in return. He lived only to serve Sri Rama."
 "Hanuman ranks first amongst the heroes of the world. His heroic deeds, wonderful exploits and marvelous feats of strength and bravery cannot be adequately described. He is a Chiranjeevi. He is everywhere. He who has eyes and devotion beholds him and receives his blessing".......   Swami Sivananda << More>>

Brahmotsav of Sri Sri Ashtalaxmi Bahvan & Sri Chidananda Dhyana Mandir/Sri Ashtalaxmi Darshan

Devi is synonymous with Sakti or the Divine Power that manifests, sustains and transforms the universe as the one unifying force of Existence. By Devi or Sakti we mean the presupposition of all forms of existential power, the power of knowledge, of omniscience. These powers are the glorious attributes of Godóyou may call Him Vishnu or Siva or as you like. In other words, Sakti is the very possibility of the Absoluteís appearing as many, of Godís causing this universe. Sakti and Sakta are one; the Power and the one who possesses the Power cannot be separated; God and Sakti are like fire and heat of fire.
Devi-worship or Sakti-worship is therefore worship of Godís glory, of Godís greatness and supremacy. It is adoration of the Almighty. - Swami Sivananda <<more>>

Chidananda Darshan - through Life incidence of Guru Maharaj
Birth Centenary Celebration of Guru Bhagawan Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj at Sivananda Ashram, Ahmedabad.
"Be a part of Celebrations and Be benefited "

"The Sculpture Owes It To The Sculptor"

The thirty-ninth birthday of Swami Chidananda, in particular, was celebrated at the behest of the Holy Master with grand, festive rejoicings and great solemnity. Gurudev declared on this occasion, "Celebration of Swami Chidanandaji's birthday is really worship of God." He acknowledged Swamiji's attainment of the highest knowledge and honoured him with the sacred title of 'Adhyatma Jnana Jyoti', an embodiment of the Brahma Sutras and the Gita, who brought Upanishads from his heart. He made it open to all that the present
life of Chidananda was his last birth. He went to the extent to say, "Even I revere him as my Guru".
Swamiji was hailed by the devotees and seekers as Divinity incarnate. In his answer to the felicitations he said that he humbly accepted all their kind wishes and comments, and then emphasized that all that was only Guru Kripa. He likened himself to a piece of sculpture
and said that if at all there was any beauty in the statue, the credit was to go to the sculptor. He concluded by saying, "The divine engineer of Swami Chidananda is Swami Sivananda."  

"Prism Disperses The Light"
Swamiji's 'Light Fountain' - a biographical piece on his Master which will for ever be read by all inquisitive readers as an incomparable spiritual document-bears thrilling witness to his deep appreciation of Gurudev. It is a masterful biographical writing
distinguished by a purity of style, musical organisation, and profound knowledge of its subject. The entirely unobtrusive manner of its presentation makes the reader always encounter in the pages Sivananda and not the author. Gurudev himself was so much
impressed by the spiritual fervour and wisdom contained in the book that he remarked, "Sivananda will pass away but 'Light Fountain' will live". While releasing the book in 1944 Swamiji had chosen to keep the authorship concealed under the pseudonym, Prism.
Chidananda is, indeed, the holy prism through which Gurudev had chosen to reveal his multicoloured personality for the benefit of the world.

News & Activity Report for the Month of march 2015
Divya Jivan / April 2015

Therefore, without attachment, do thou always perform action which should be done; for, by performing action without attachment man reaches the Supreme. (3:19)

Having abandoned attachment to the fruit of the action, ever content, depending on nothing, he does not do anything though engaged in activity. (4:20)

Whatever thou doest, whatever thou eatest, whatever thou offerest in sacrifice, whatever thou givest, whatever thou practiseth as austerity, O Arjuna, do it as an offering unto Me! (9:27)

Thus shalt thou be freed from the bonds of actions yielding good and evil fruits; with the mind steadfast in the Yoga of renunciation, and liberated, thou shalt come unto Me.(9:28)
