Sri Ramnavmi Utsav -
Swami Sivananda ( April 12, 2011)
Name of Lord Rama is the greatest purifier of the heart. It
wipes away all one's sins. Not only this, but it wipes away the
sinful tendencies as well. The Name is sweeter than the sweetest of
objects. It is the haven of peace. It is the very life of pure
souls. It is the purifier of all purifying agencies. It quenches the
consuming fire of worldly desires. It awakens the knowledge of God.
It bathes the aspirant in the, ocean of divine bliss. Glory to Sri
Rama and His Name!
Ram-Nam burns ignorance, passion and sin.
With or without knowledge, correctly or incorrectly, when the word "Rama"
is pronounced it showers a rain of good upon the devotee. - Swami

Sri Hanuman Jayanti (April 18,
"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

Early Morning Meditation Talks from
Ponder These Truths by Sri Swami Chidananda
Dharma Kshetra is karma Kshetra
There is a concept in the Upanishads: When a thought arises that you
know is contrary to the Law do not act, postpone it, brush it away.
Direct your mind elsewhere. Engage yourself in doing something else.
When a thought arises which is in consonance with dharma, in
accordance with dharma, do
not wait, do it immediately. Do not allow any interval to lapse, to
intervene between your good intention and its corollary, the
corresponding good action. Do it immediately. Great wisdom is behind
this direction, wisdom deriving from experience. So in this trite
saying, dharma kshetra is karma
world of meaning comes into being. Anything contrary to dharma
should not be translated into action. It should not take the form of
karma because it will rebound upon you in the form of sorrow.
Whereas when any dharmic impulse
or thought arises, immediately it should be translated into karma. Dharma
kshetra is karma
