June 1, 2013 Marks Sannyasa Diksha day of Holy Master Swami Sivananadaji Maharaj.

"Sannyasa, Path to Blessedness".
 

"Worshipful and Revered Gurudev Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj’s Sannyasin life was most ideal and exemplary model to the Sannyasin of present era. His was the great Sannyasa. He experienced Brahman everywhere, in everything, at all times and in all conditions. Gurudev was unique in own-self and core to the renunciation; Sivananda Ashram kept on expanding and number of buildings started springing up but Gurudev never left His small cowshed where He spent His whole  life in pursuing His spiritual Sadhana. His was the wonderful and ideal life. His life is worth knowing. If, possible it is worth practicing." -Swami Adhyatmananda  " << More>>

Early Meditation Talk 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 from a book "Yoga, A way of life" by Sri 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>>

Gitamrutam 


The sages understand Sannyas to be the renunciation of action with desire; the wise declare the abandonment of the fruits of all actions as Tyaga. ( 18:2)


Acts of sacrifice, gift and austerity should not be abandoned, but should be performed; sacrifice, gift and also austerity are the purifiers of the wise. (18:5)

 


Whatever obligatory action is done, O Arjuna, merely because it ought to be done, abandoning attachment and also the desire for reward, that renunciation is regarded as Sattwic! ( 18:9)

 


The man of renunciation, pervaded by purity, intelligent and with his doubts cut asunder, does not hate a disagreeable work nor is he attached to an agreeable one. (18:10)

 


Verily, it is not possible for an embodied being to abandon actions entirely; but he who relinquishes the rewards of actions is verily called a man of renunciation.  (18:11)
