Song Celestial, Bhagvad Gita
 Gita Jayanti ( Dec 23, 2012 )

"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 the most beautiful and the only truly philosophical song. It contains sublime lessons on wisdom and philosophy. It is the “Song Celestial”. It is the universal gospel. It contains the message of life that appeals to all, irrespective of race, creed, age or religion. The Gita contains the divine nectar. It is the wish-fulfilling gem, tree and cow. You can milk anything from it. It is a book for eternity. It is a vade-mecum for all. Peace, bliss, wisdom, Brahman, Nirvana, Param Padam and Gita are all synonymous terms." -   Sri Swami Sivananda << More>>

Lord Dattatreya Jayanti ( Dec 27, 2012 )

Lord Sri Dattatreya - "He was a supreme Yogi. Like Dakshinamurti, He was the adi guru, the primal World Teacher. Contemplate His life. Meditate upon Him. Feel His divine presence. Evoke in your mind the sacred memory of Sati Anasuya and Atri Maharshi, the power of chastity, and divine grace in the form of Divinity taking birth at the earnest supplication and prayer of a heart filled with devotion. The earnest prayer of a heart filled with devotion never goes unanswered or unfulfilled. This is what the advent, the avatara of Dattatreya represents or proves.-Swami Chidananda << More>>.

Early Morning Meditation talk from "Ponder These Truths " by Swami Chidananda 

"The Immanence of GOD "

"If you are aware of the indwelling presence of God in all creatures, ahimsa is inevitable. If you are aware that He dwells within you, and He is satyasvarupa (essence of truth), asatya (untruth) to you is impossible and satya becomes imperative. If you are aware that He is within all creatures and within yourself, then our relationships have to be of the same quality as the indwelling presence in both us and in others—that is divine. And God is supreme purity—nitya suddha, amala, vimala, niranjana. Therefore man’s relationship to all fellow beings will also become pervaded by a supreme divine quality of purity. And samyama (self-control) and brahmacharya will become automatically realised if man keeps himself in the awareness of the presence of the silent Light of God within himself and all creatures. "To be aware of this and therefore not to harm or do anything bad to any creature is a very essential part of our sadhana and spiritual life; otherwise, you will be offending God Whom you are trying to realise."

 "Thus it is that immanence is key to divinity. Awareness of God’s presence within and without, in all beings, in all creatures, in all nature becomes the key, the secret of living in the awareness of the Yoga of the eleventh chapter of the Bhagavad Gita,"  - Swami Chidananda <<More>>

Yoga Learning from a Book  "Yoga, A way of Life" 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>>
