June 1, 2015 Marks Sannyasa Diksha day of Holy Master Swami Sivananadaji Maharaj.

"Sannyasa, Path to Blessedness".
"Worshipful and Revered Gurudev Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharajís Sannyasin life was most ideal and exemplary model to the Sannyasin of present era. His was the great Sannyasa. He experienced Brahman everywhere, in everything, at all times and in all conditions. Gurudev was unique in own-self and core to the renunciation; Sivananda Ashram kept on expanding and number of buildings started springing up but Gurudev never left His small cowshed where He spent His whole  life in pursuing His spiritual Sadhana. His was the wonderful and ideal life. His life is worth knowing. If, possible it is worth practicing." -Swami Adhyatmananda  " << More>>

"Modern St. Francis Assisi"
Through his living experience, he has blended the glorious Christian truths with the ancient ones expressed in the Indian scriptures, thus demonstrating that all is one.  An example of this living synthesis is the fact that when he tours in the West, garbed in the ochre robes characteristic of the traditional Swami order, many hearts respond to him, because of his humility and universal love for all living things, as to a modern St. Francis of Assisi.
The secret of his personal magnetism lies in the utter simplicity of his nature, in his firm faith in God and man and in his own Guru and in his deep sense of service and sacrifice.

 "Veternary Doctor"
One day Dr. Raoji noticed a dog lying near the office room of the Ashram. It was full of sores and worms. It was clear that it had been in agony for some time. The tender heart of  Rao Swamiji bled at the pathetic sight. He gave some medicines and injections and dressed its affected parts with proper bandage and slept near the dog tending it the whole night. When the Ashramites saw this in the morning they were simply dazed. Gurudev remarked that Rao Swamiji was not a man but the very embodiment of compassion.

Yoga Learning from a book "Yoga, A way of life" by Sri Swami Adhyatmananda

Primary & Main Yogasana (Yoga Postures)

The Physical techniques of Yoga are the stepping stones to meditation. According to Patanjali, Yoga is the cessation of the modifications of the mind. 
In the beginning the primary prerequisite to peace of mind is posture. Yogasana practiced to gain steady posture, health and lightness in the body. All Yoga postures are intended to directly or indirectly quiet the mind. The majority of Asana have been devised to build up different parts of the body and to develop the strength required by the more advanced  Physical disciplines. The purpose of the yogasana is to recondition the system, both mind and body, and to develop the nervous and glandular systems. The different Yoga postures have been devised to bring a rich supply of blood to the brain and to the various parts of the spinal column. The yogasana work by stretching, bending and twisting the spinal column in different directions to promote the health of the nerves. When the body is purified, Prana (vital energy) can be conserved and the individual becomes healthy and conscious. << More>>

News & Activity Report for the month of May 2015

Divya Jivan/ May 2015

The sages understand Sannyas to be the renunciation of action with desire; the wise declare the abandonment of the fruits of all actions as Tyaga. ( 18:2)

Acts of sacrifice, gift and austerity should not be abandoned, but should be performed; sacrifice, gift and also austerity are the purifiers of the wise. (18:5)

The man of renunciation, pervaded by purity, intelligent and with his doubts cut asunder, does not hate a disagreeable work nor is he attached to an agreeable one. (18:10)

Verily, it is not possible for an embodied being to abandon actions entirely; but he who relinquishes the rewards of actions is verily called a man of renunciation.  (18:11)
