"Salutation to Lord Rama, an Incarnation of Lord Vishnu, who is measureless, who is of the nature of pure Consciousness and bliss, who is the consort of Sita, Master of Sri Hanuman, and the Lord of the three worlds, who took His birth at His own will in order to establish righteousness, destroy the wicked and protect His devotees."
Sri Rama be your ideal. Ideals are remembered and adored for the
purpose of adopting them in your own life. The Ramnavami celebration
or the Vasanta Navaratri every year is an opportune period for us to
saturate ourselves with the spirit of Lord Rama. We love and adore
our ideals because we express thereby our yearning to unite with
them. In our worship of God it is implied that we should be
virtuous, good and perfect even as God is. Hence the wise
instruction: "One should become divine in order to be able to
worship God". One cannot be a real worshipper of Lord Rama unless
one makes an honest attempt to grow in the virtues that the Lord
represents. On the other hand, worship of Lord Rama is itself the
surest means to develop such virtues."- Swami Sivananda
Where Hanuman is, there are Sri Rama and Sri Sita and wherever Sri Rama and Sri Sita are praised and their deeds recited, there Hanuman is. He is a Chiranjeevi. He is everywhere. He who has eyes and devotion beholds him and receives his blessing.
Glory to Hanuman, the blessed devotee of Lord Rama. Glory, glory
to Sri Anjaneya, the mighty hero, undaunted warrior and learned
Brahmacharin, the like of whom the world has not yet seen and will
not see in time to come.
Dynamic Sravana (Hearing, Listening)
....... Listening is for renewal. Sravana (listening to scriptures) is for rebirth. Sravana is for steady forward movement towards the Goal. Sravana is for stage by stage, higher and higher ascent unto illumination and enlightenment. Receiving them, we are also ultimately meant to reach that self-same state of experience from which these truths were declared, shared and given in the ancient past by all the illumined, perfected sages.
Through the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, Ramayana, Panchadasi many truths are given. We hear them not merely to pass a little time in satsang, but to receive, cherish, reflect upon, and to grow in our own inner state of consciousness, to acquire more and more jnana, so that gradually our interior is more and more illumined. That is our prayer: “dhiyo yo nah prachodayat—Illumine our inner being, may darkness vanish and light prevail.”
Thus, day after day, as we listen to each discourse, we cannot deny that at least one gem of truth, one revealing truth, a fact of life, is sure to be obtained if we listen with attention. Each occasion is an occasion for ceaseless onward progress—continuous inward ascent unto ever higher states of consciousness, understanding and wisdom—to liberate ourselves from all that we desire to liberate ourselves from, to attain all that we desire to attain which we now feel is perhaps not attained.- Swami Chidananda << More>>
