"Bhagavan Sri Krishna is the immortal manifestation of God in all His splendour, that man was ever given the fortune to behold. Man! Blessed thou art, that hast visualised with thy fleshly eyes the mighty Dignity of the Supreme Sovereign of the Universe! Thou art purified; thy birthright is to realise Him; thy fortune is a part of His Greatness! Sri Krishna may be called the "Collective Man", who represented all beings hungering and thirsting to gain the Highest Freedom and who voiced forth their deepest aspirations in the loudest possible tone. He came to release man from the thraldom of vice and correct his vision so that he could walk along the ever-illumined path to perfection. Sri Krishna is the articulation of the pure longings that are buried in the hearts of people. Sri Krishna is not merely a historical man who came and went, like others, but the Eternal Purusha who dwells even now and shall live in the everlasting future, in the core of all manifestation. It is the Symbol of the Absolute descended into relativity that we call Krishna, the ever-beloved protector of all that breathe and air."- Swami Sivananda << More>>
Temptation: “Kamah krodhascha lobhascha dehe tisthanti taskarah jnanaratnapaharaya tasmat jagrata jagrata—Lust anger and greed, they are dacoits to rob and plunder the pearl of wisdom, not coming from outside to assail or invade you, but residing within your own body. Therefore, be awake, be awake,” says Sankaracharya in Vairagya Dindima."
"We invite temptations; we go into that area where we are tempted. We cultivate the company of such persons who are our temptation, who are our downfall, who are the ones through whom these lower propensities assail us, by whom they are stimulated and made manifest".......
"Turn to God for help and you will receive it without fail,
unfailingly. Turn to Him every day in meditation—meditation with
faith, meditation with love, meditation with humility. And be on
guard against these inner enemies to which you are host, inner
enemies dwelling within your self, meaning you no good. This is the
mystery of God and His creation, the great maya which is
duratyaya (difficult to cross). Be on guard, never lay down
arms, never give way. Always know that one day you have to overcome
and you will overcome".- Swami Chidananda
Asthma: Asthma is a chronic disease that
affects your airways. Your airways are tubes that carry air in and
out of your lungs. If
you have asthma, the inside walls of your airways become sore and
swollen. That makes them very sensitive, and they may react strongly
to things that you are allergic to or find irritating. When your
airways react, they get narrower and your lungs get less air. This
can cause wheezing, coughing, chest tightness and trouble breathing,
especially early in the morning or at night.

"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."
"Having become the fire Vaisvanara, I abide in the body of living beings and, associated with the Prana and Apana, digest the fourfold food."
"And, I am seated in the hearts of all; from Me are memory, knowledge, as well as their absence. I am verily that which has to be known by all the Vedas; I am indeed the author of the Vedanta, and the knower of the Vedas am I."
"Abandoning all duties, take refuge in Me alone; I will liberate thee from all sins; grieve not."
"Wherever there is Krishna, the Lord of Yoga, wherever there is Arjuna, the archer, there are prosperity, happiness, victory and firm policy; such is my conviction."
