OM Namo Bhagawate Sivanandaya !
OM Namo Bhagawate Chidanandaya !
OM Namo Narayanaya!
Adi Shankaracharya Jayanti ( May 15, 2013 )
"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."
"There is not one branch of knowledge which Sankara has left unexplored and which has not received the touch, polish and finish of his superhuman intellect. The loftiness, calmness and firmness of his mind, the impartiality with which he deals with various questions, his clearness of expression-all these make us revere the philosopher more and more. His teachings will continue to live as long as the sun shines."
" Sankara's scholarly erudition and his masterly way of exposition of intricate philosophical problems have won the admiration of all the philosophical schools of the world at the present moment. Sankara was an intellectual genius, a profound philosopher, an able propagandist, a matchless preacher, a gifted poet and a great religious reformer. "

"Eko devah sarvabhuteshu gudhah
sarvavyapi sarvabhutantaratma, karmadhyakshah sarvabhutadhivasah
(God, Who is one only, is hidden in all beings. He pervades all
and He is the inner soul of all beings. He presides over all
actions and He dwells in all beings). Three times the indwelling
presence of God has been brought out in this single verse—sarvabhuteshu
gudhah (hidden in all beings), sarvabhutantaratma (inner self of
all beings), sarvabhutadhivasah (immanent in all beings).
Sarvavyapi (all-pervading) only once, but the indwelling
presence thrice within a single verse. Here also: saman sarveshu
bhuteshu tishthantam paramesvaram (the Supreme Lord is equally
present in all beings). Again, twice that I am within all
creatures: ahamatma gudakesa sarvabhutasayasthitah, aham adischa
madhyam cha bhutanam anta eva cha (I am the Self, O Arjuna,
seated in the hearts of all beings; I am the beginning, the
middle and also the end of all beings)."

"Satsanga is the greatest of all purifiers and illuminators of man. It is extremely difficult to come in contact with saint and to be benefited by his company. It is through divine grace only one will get his darshan and satsanga. A realized sage or saint is a fountain of delight, joy and illumination. Seek his company and evolve. Serve him with faith and devotion. Follow the teachings of saints and sages, the perfected Beings, the seers of truth." - Swami Sivananda
