"The Gita is the cream of the Vedas. It is the essence of the soul-elevating Upanishads. It is a universal scripture applicable to people of all temperaments and for all times. It is a wonderful book with sublime thoughts and practical instructions on Yoga, devotion, Vedanta and action. It is a marvelous book, profound in thought and sublime in heights of vision. It brings peace and solace to souls that are afflicted by the three fires of mortal existence, namely, afflictions caused by one’s own body, those caused by beings around one, and those caused by the gods."
"The Gita is not merely a book or just a scripture. It is a living voice carrying an eternally indispensable and vital message to mankind. Its verses embody words of wisdom coming from the infinite ocean of knowledge, the Absolute Itself."
"The Gita is a source of power and wisdom. It strengthens you when you are weak, and inspires you when you feel dejected and feeble. It teaches you to embrace righteousness and to resist unrighteousness." - Swami Sivananda << More>>
Sri 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.-Swami Chidananda
"When You Wake up In The Morning": Waking up in the morning should not merely mean waking up into this maya-bazaar, waking up into this temporary world of pain and death. It should not only mean waking up into this little, confined, outer earth awareness. It should also simultaneously mean waking up into the awareness of your divinity which has been temporarily suspended in sleep. And keep up that inner wakefulness along with your outer physical wakefulness of the senses and the mind. Keep up the inner wakefulness of your svarupa. That is the great thing needful. That is what will make your life divine. That is what will take you, day by day, higher and higher towards the Goal Supreme. And this you have to do for yourself, with wisdom." << More>>
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
