Biography of Sri
on the occasion of Sri Sankaracharya Jayanti ( May 8,
am the Self of all; I am the all; I am transcendent; I am one
without a second; I am the Absolute; I am the infinite
Consciousness; I am homogeneous bliss” - Sri Adisankaracharya
This is the assertion of Shankara, India’s greatest
philosopher-saint, the incarnation of Lord Shiva, reverently
known as Srimath Adi Shankaracharya. What can we take him for
except the Lord Himself, who proclaims authoritatively and
Sankara is the foremost among the master-minds and the giant
souls which Mother India has produced. He was the expounder of
the Advaita philosophy. Sankara was a giant metaphysician, a
practical philosopher, an infallible logician, a dynamic
personality and a stupendous moral and spiritual force. His
grasping and elucidating powers knew no bounds. He was a fully
developed Yogi, Jnani and Bhakta. He was a Karma Yogin of no
mean order. He was a powerful magnet. - Swami Sivananda "

Ponder These Truths by Sri Swami Chidananda
Key to happiness
The key is inside. It is a state of mind that we diligently create
within us that ultimately has the effect of creating happiness or
misery for us. Therefore, mind alone is the cause of bondage and
liberation. Mind is the cause of pleasure and pain, joy and sorrow.
Whatever it is, mana eva karanam manushyanam—for human beings, mind
itself is the main cause. And in the higher metaphysical sense,
Vedanta says: “manahkalpitam jagat—this world is created by your

Prana - "The true meaning of
Prana is not only breath. The Prana is energy. It is
universal power, brightness, intelligence
in this world. All these cosmic energies are
named as light and Prana."Yatkinchit Jagat Sarvam

The Prana is the source of all capabilities and the power in the
universe. Prana is the only power behind the normal
functioning of the system of respiration (inhalation and
exhalation), blood circulation, digestion, excretion of urine and
stool, system producing semen, structure of our bones and also the
nervous system.The working abilities of sensory organs and motor
organs improve as each cell gets extra nutrition. The secret of
beauty of skin, shining of the face, brightness of the eyes,
intelligence power and development of mental power is the result of
the practice of Pranayama. The practice of Pranayama means oneness
with cosmic energy. Pranayama Sadhana opens the doors of subtle life
from the gross life "- Swami Adhyatmananda.
