"Start Sadhana Now "-  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.

Never fall a victim to fruitless regret. Today is the best day. Today is the day of your new birth. Start Sadhana now. With folded palms, bid good-bye to past mistakes and faults. You have learnt your lessons. March forward now with new hope, determination, and vigilance".........

"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
Nothing succeeds like Success
"......I place before you for your consideration the inner significance and import of this apparently common but very shrewd and correct saying: “Nothing succeeds like success.” It is true, success puts you into a positive state, makes you self-confident. Then the door to success is thrown wide open for you. Therefore, always have this state of positive self-confidence, a robust, determined state of mind, and attain the Goal, not in the distant future, not in another birth, but in this very life, and become supremely blessed!......." - Swami Chidananda << More>>

On "Health Topics" from a Book " Yoga & Health " by Swami Adhyatmananda

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. Therefore, without any type of hurry, with perfect quiet attitude & balance state of mind, practise Asanas, Bhramari as well as Omkar Pranayamas. <<More>>
