Gita Mahatmaya on sacred Gita Jayanti (Dec 10, 2016)

Gita Mahatmaya

"Though engaged in the performance of worldly duties, one who is regular in the study of the Gita becomes free. He is the happy man in this world. He is not bound by Karma.  Just as the water stains not the lotus leaf, even so sins do not taint him who is regular in the recitation of the Gita. All the sacred centers of pilgrimage, like Prayag and other places, dwell in that place where the Gita is kept, and where the Gita is read.  All the gods, sages, Yogins, divine serpents, Gopalas, Gopikas (friends and devotees of Lord Krishna), Narada, Uddhava and others (dwell here).  Help comes quickly where the Gita is recited and, O Earth, I ever dwell where it is read, heard, taught and contemplated upon!

I take refuge in the Gita, and the Gita is My best abode. I protect the three worlds with the knowledge of the Gita. The Gita is My highest science, which is doubtless of the form of Brahman, the Eternal, the Ardhamatra (of the Pranava Om), the ineffable splendour of the Self. It was spoken by the blessed Lord Krishna, the all-knowing, through His own mouth, to Arjuna. It contains the essence of the Vedas—the knowledge of the Reality. It is full of supreme bliss." -  Swami Sivananda

The Teachings of Lord Sri Dattatreya
on auspicious Sri Dattatreya Jayanti (Dec 13, 2016)

"Lord 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." << More>>

Early Morning Meditation Talks from Ponder These Truths by Sri Swami Chidananda

Faith Hope and Charity
" Faith, hope and charity—never let go of these. Always let them be enshrined within you—faith in the Supreme, hope for yourself and charity towards all."
"Thus finish your journey and you will attain the Goal. The journey will take you to your destiny—your divine destiny, the fulfillment of which is the most important thing in life. All other things come afterward; they are secondary. In this way, understand your life, understand yourself, understand your relationship to the Maker, and understand your relationship to the rest of creation."
"May you ponder these cardinal points of your life’s journey—charity towards God’s creatures, absolute hope about yourself, and absolute faith in the Being Who has brought you into being, Who has placed you among His creatures, so that you may become like Him and you can attain Him as your supreme Goal!" - Swami Chidananda  << More>>

Learning of  "Jeevan Yog" from a Yoga Acharya Swami Adhyatmananda
Through TV episodes of "Jeevan Yoga" Series by Doordarshan Girnar

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>>.

"Yoga is eternal life in the soul or spirit. It transforms a man into divinity. It brings a message of hope to the forlorn, joy to the depressed, strength to the weak and knowledge to the ignorant. Yoga way of Life brings happiness of sound mind in sound body. Yogic living implies discriminative living. Yoga is equanimity, equipoise or equilibrium. It is the secret master-key to open the realms of eternal bliss and deep abiding peace"  - Swami Adhyatmananda

Gitamrutam

I am the Self, O Gudakesha, seated in the hearts of all beings! I am the beginning, the middle and also the end of all beings.



 

To those men who worship Me alone, thinking of no other, of those ever united, I secure what is not already possessed and preserve what they already possess. ( 9:22)



To them who are ever steadfast, worshipping Me with love, I give the Yoga of discrimination by which they come to Me. (10:10)


Abandoning all duties, take refuge in Me alone; I will liberate thee from all sins; grieve not." (18:66)
