"Glory of Guru-Bhakti  Yoga " by Swami Sivananda on auspicious Guru Purnima ( July 3, 2012 )

" Worship the Guru with the flowers of faith and devotion. Satsanga with the Guru is the first pillar in the temple of Self-realisation.Grace of God takes the form of Guru. To see the Guru is to see God. Blind is the man who has not seen the divine Master. There is but one religion, the religion of devotion and love to Guru."
 
"Everyone who longs to transcend misery and obtain joy and happiness in life should sincerely practise Guru-Bhakti Yoga. True lasting happiness can be had by taking recourse to Guru Seva Yoga. Guru-Bhakti Yoga confers immortality, eternal bliss, freedom, perfection, perennial joy and everlasting peace." Swami Sivananda <<More>>



 
Early Morning Meditation Talks from " Ponder These Truths " by Sri Swami Chidananda
 


No One Can Give You Salvation

“No one can give salvation to any individual except that individual himself or herself.”
“You have to work for liberation from sorrow and the attainment of bliss; no one can give it to you; you obtain it by your own effort. In spite of all that has been said about Guru’s grace and divine kripa and miracles, nevertheless, the truth is that supreme state of blessedness is something you can give to yourself; no one else can give it to you.” ........Swami  Chidananda <<More>>

 

Yoga Learning through  a book  "Yoga, a way of Life" by Swami Adhyatmananda 

Primary & Main Yogasana (Yoga Postures) 
The Physical techniques of Yoga are the stepping stones to meditation. According to Patanjali, Yoga is the cessation of the modifications of the mind.
 
 In the beginning the primary prerequisite to peace of mind is posture. Yogasana practiced to gain steady posture, health and lightness in the body. All Yoga postures are intended to directly or indirectly quiet the mind. The majority of Asana have been devised to build up different parts of the body and to develop the strength required by the more advanced  Physical disciplines. The purpose of the yogasana is to recondition the system, both mind and body, and to develop the nervous and glandular systems. The different Yoga postures have been devised to bring a rich supply of blood to the brain and to the various parts of the spinal column. The yogasana work by stretching, bending and twisting the spinal column in different directions to promote the health of the nerves. When the body is purified, Prana (vital energy) can be conserved and the individual becomes healthy and conscious. << More>>

Guru's Grace
 
  • "A living awareness of the here-and-now presence of the great Master makes one a real follower of the great Master. If you are conscious and aware of this presence, His presence is hundredfold more. If you are in a state of forgetfulness with your thoughts elsewhere, you deprive yourself of His presence, Therefore, cultivate the consciousness of the permanent and perennial presence of the Master." He pervades all my life. He is with me wherever I go. In and through me He continues to live and to shine." - Swami Chidananda
  • "What is the nature of Guru's grace? It is beyond thought and word. Then how can it be said that the devotee realises his true Being by virtue of the Guru's grace? It is like the elephant which wakes up on seeing a lion in its dream. Even as the elephant wakes up at the mere sight of the lion, so too is it certain that the disciple wakes up from the sleep of ignorance to the knowledge of Real. It is true and certain." - Sri Ramana Maharshi
  • "The Guru is the boat,  To cross this ocean of Samsara; The Guru is the passport , To the kingdom of Eternal bliss;The Guru is the ladder , To lift you to the peak of perfection. Serve your Guru well with Bhakti. You will obtain his grace and reach the goal of life." - Sri Swami Sivananda
