  Remembering " Sannyasa Diksha" day  of Holy Master Sri Swami Sivananda (June 1, 2012)


"Rare it is to find a parallel to the type of life—of lofty, sublime selflessness and total, wonderful, dedicated selfless service of all God’s creatures—that Gurudev was and placed before us as an ideal. It is to this embodiment of selflessness and selfless service, this great expounder of nishkama-karma-yoga, who boldly declared, "Service of humanity is worship of God," that we pay our homage. May his blessings be upon us all!"

"All Gurudev’s life after Self-realisation, after becoming an enlightened sage and shining as a great light of the Himalayas, was a saga of selfless service—service of the poor, service of the suffering, service of the sick, service of the distressed, service of spiritual aspirants and seekers, service of all humanity, service of the whole world. In diverse, numerous ways, his entire life was one great, continuous stream of selfless service. He had even forgotten how to think of himself; he could only think of others. He lived thinking of others: "In what way can I be of benefit, in what way can I serve?" That was Gurudev Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj till the very last days."  - Swami  Chidananda << More>>.

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

Faith Hope and Charity
" Faith, hope and charity—never let go of these. Always let them be enshrined within you—faith in the Supreme, hope for yourself and charity towards all."

"Thus finish your journey and you will attain the Goal. The journey will take you to your destiny—your divine destiny, the fulfillment of which is the most important thing in life. All other things come afterward; they are secondary. In this way, understand your life, understand yourself, understand your relationship to the Maker, and understand your relationship to the rest of creation."

"May you ponder these cardinal points of your life’s journey—charity towards God’s creatures, absolute hope about yourself, and absolute faith in the Being Who has brought you into being, Who has placed you among His creatures, so that you may become like Him and you can attain Him as your supreme Goal!" - Swami Chidananda  << More>>

Yoga Learning through  a book  "Yoga, a way of Life" by Swami Adhyatmananda 

Primary & Main Yogasana (Yoga Postures) 
The Physical techniques of Yoga are the stepping stones to meditation. According to Patanjali, Yoga is the cessation of the modifications of the mind.
 In the beginning the primary prerequisite to peace of mind is posture. Yogasana practiced to gain steady posture, health and lightness in the body. All Yoga postures are intended to directly or indirectly quiet the mind. The majority of Asana have been devised to build up different parts of the body and to develop the strength required by the more advanced  Physical disciplines. The purpose of the yogasana is to recondition the system, both mind and body, and to develop the nervous and glandular systems. The different Yoga postures have been devised to bring a rich supply of blood to the brain and to the various parts of the spinal column. The yogasana work by stretching, bending and twisting the spinal column in different directions to promote the health of the nerves. When the body is purified, Prana (vital energy) can be conserved and the individual becomes healthy and conscious. << More>>

Divine Inspiration  
  • Selfless service can reveal to you the identity of humanity, can expand your heart and take you to the door of intuition. Therefore, do unceasing selfless service and thus purify your heart. Have a definite aim. Live with a definite purpose. Realise that life is meant for service and not for self-seeking.
  • Build your life on the great ideal of selfless service. All other ideals will manifest in life through this ideal of selfless service. Be actively pure, helpful and self-sacrificing. Discipline the body and the mind again and again for fiery service. Discipline of the body and the mind is the first stage in practical Yoga.
  • Nishkamya Seva is the keystone to Karma Yoga, Cultivate humility, love, truth in thought, words and deeds. Abandon pettiness, narrow outlook, selfishness, jealousy and anger.
  • See God in every living creature and within you. Feel His presence everywhere. You will experience immense bliss, strength and indescribable joy.

- Swami Sivananda
