  "Start Sadhana Now"  - Sri Swami Sivananda  

  "Act now. Live now. Know now. Realize now. Be happy now.

Every death is a reminder. Every bell that rings says, "The end is near". Every day robs off from you one part of your precious life. Therefore, you should be very earnest in plunging yourself in constant Sadhana.

"Waver not. Fear not. Doubt not. Do something substantial in the path of Sadhana instead of wasting your time in idle pursuits and lethargy. You have infinite strength within you. There is a vast reservoir of power within you. Therefore, do not lose heart. Obstacles are stepping stones to success. They will develop your will. Do not allow yourself to be crushed by them. Defects remind you of perfection. Sin reminds you of virtue. Chose the positive path"............ 

Sadhana is spiritual movement consciously systematized. Sadhana is the purpose for which we have come to this place. Abhyasa and Sadhana are synonymous terms. The object of Sadhana is to release life from the limitations with which it is bound. Sadhana is a lifelong process. Every day, every hour, every minute, is an onward march. Obstacles are innumerable in this great voyage. But, so long as you hold God as thy guide, there is nothing to worry about. You are sure to reach the other shore." -  Swami Sivananda << More>>


Early Morning Meditation talks from" Ponder These Truths" by Sri  Swami Chidananda

Purusharth -Self Effort : " purushartha is the key to realisation. You may know only a little, but you put it into practise. Gurudev said Twenty Spiritual Instructions are enough to grant you Self-realisation, and when he said that he knew what he was saying. And he was saying the truth. Not that he discouraged studies, but he wanted to emphasise action, not dry studies.

If you want to become a professor, a lecturer, then studies are very necessary, absolutely indispensable, very important indeed. But if you want to become a dynamic Yogi, more important than tons of knowledge is practice, action, purushartha, sadhana, yoga abhyasa. Spiritual life means engaging in active spiritual endeavour, it means purushartha." - Swami  Chidananda << More>>

Principle causes of Backache, Treatment & Precautions .......
Bhujangasana, Baddha-Naukasana, Kati -Utthanasana, Ushtrasana, Bharmari Pranayama & Shavasana are very helpful.
Practice of Shalabhasana at the end of Bhujang­asana and practice of Dhanurasana on completion of Ushtrasana are found very beneficial for the backache.

So Says Swami Sivananda
  • Sadhana -The secret of Success. Persevere. Plod on in your Sadhana.
  • Through introspection, analysis, discrimination, vigilance, enquiry and prayer, you can understand the tricks and jugglery of the mind and escape from its deception.
  • To make the mind obey you, is Spiritual discipline.
  • Still the mind. Here in lies freedom and bliss eternal.
  • Where there are kindness, humility and purity, there spirituality springs up, saintliness shines, divinity descends and perfection manifests itself.
