What Gurudev is for US?
With this sharing, let us offer our worshipful adorations at the feet of Guru Bhagavan and offer our loving homage to that Being Whom he represented, Whose ancient call, which was sounded in the Gita jnana upadesa, he once again revived and gave voice to in this twentieth century: “Come, come, become a Yogi, attain Self-realisation, God-realisation, in this very life.”
That is Gurudev for us. That is what he shall ever be for those
who have sincerely tried to ponder and tried to find out what we are
to him, in what way we are related to him and what he has been to
us." ... - Swami Chidananda
Embodiment of wisdom,
Devata of Muladhara Chakra!
O Lord Vinayaka,
The bestower of happiness
Who has Modaka in hand!
O Elephant-headed Lord!
Salutations unto Thee.
Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha."
Lord Ganesha is an embodiment of wisdom and bliss. He is the Lord of Brahmacharins. He is the foremost among Brahmacharins or celibates. He is the Lord who removes all obstacles on the path of the spiritual aspirant, and bestows upon him worldly as well as spiritual success. Hence He is called Vigna Vinayaka. His Bija Akshara (root syllable) is Gung, pronounced to rhyme with the English word "sung". He is the Lord of harmony and peace. - Swami Sivananda..... <<More>>

" Use the sacred power of speech or Vani to use noble words, words giving respect to other, words pleasing to others. You must make use of your Vani so that out of it comes happiness to others, a sense of dignity, not a sense of being degraded or made to feel uncomfortable."
" You should not misuse your speech to harm anyone, to insult anyone, to speak with disrespect, for then you are making perverted wrong use of God, power that is God. Have purity of sight. Do not use your sight to express ill-will, hatred, anger, for then you are misusing this faculty of God. Hear what will be beneficial to you, that which is pure. As Gandhiji said, " Close your ears"; otherwise you are putting a divine faculty to an undivine, unspiritual use. Let your hands and feet move only in a divine and spiritual way; otherwise you are misusing God's presence and power in the form of this faculty." - Swami Chidananda
