OM Namo Bhagawate Sivanandaya!
OM Namo Bhagawate Chidanandaya!
OM Namo Narayanaya!
Glories og Srimad Bhagawad Gita on auspicious Gita Jayanti (Dec 21, 2015) -  Sri Swami Sivananda

 "The Gita is the cream of the Vedas. It is the essence of the soul-elevating Upanishads. It is a universal scripture applicable to people of all temperaments and for all times. It is a wonderful book with sublime thoughts and practical instructions on Yoga, devotion, Vedanta and action. It is a marvelous book, profound in thought and sublime in heights of vision. It brings peace and solace to souls that are afflicted by the three fires of mortal existence, namely, afflictions caused by one’s own body, those caused by beings around one, and those caused by the gods."
 "The Gita is not merely a book or just a scripture. It is a living voice carrying an eternally indispensable and vital message to mankind. Its verses embody words of wisdom coming from the infinite ocean of knowledge, the Absolute Itself."
 "The Gita is a source of power and wisdom. It strengthens you when you are weak, and inspires you when you feel dejected and feeble. It teaches you to embrace righteousness and to resist unrighteousness." - Swami Sivananda << More>>

Chidananda Darshan - through Life incidence of Guru Maharaj
Birth Centenary Celebration of Guru Bhagawan Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj

Vande Guru Paramparam
Swami Chidanandji was addressing a public meeting at Town Hall, Ahmedabad in 1986 in regard to the Centenary Celebrations of Gurudev Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj. He explored the real significance behind the centenary celebration in subtler terms. Swamiji emphasized that centenary celebration of Revered Gurudev is not simply meant to be an occasion for paying tributes to Gurudev Sivananda, a doctor of body, mind & soul but in a broader and philosophical terms, it is tantamount to paying our gratitude and respects to the entire Guru Parampara, our spiritual heritage and lineage of which he was a shining representative.

Sadasiva Samarambham Sankaracharya Madhyaman,
Asmad Acharya Paryantam Vande Guru-Paramparam.

I bow and pay homage to this long line of succession of Gurus that originated from Sankar Bhagvan Himself and that had in its middle Sankara Acharya, and to this day I pay homage to my own Guru, who is to me the present representative of this spiritual lineage.

Yoga Learning from Swami Adhyatmananda

 OMKAR - "Omkar Sadhana is the Prana of Spiritual Sadhana. Omkar is the best Pranayam."

"The practice of Omkar destroys Tamasik thoughts and converts the Rajasik thoughts into Sattvik thoughts. In long term if the people living in all four directions on the earth start practising Omkar regularly, the mental conflicts can be eliminated. Selfishness will retire. Benevo­lence will be originated. The whole world can become a family. The contradiction will decrease and smooth conversation will be possible. The wind of pure selfless life will flow. Omkar is the highway of world peace and welfare. Let us practice Omkar and make our life successful"- Swami Adhyatmananda  << More>>.

To them who are ever steadfast, worshipping Me with love, I give the Yoga of discrimination by which they come to Me. (10:10)
