Remembering Sannyasa Diksha of Holy Master Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj (June 1, 2009) 

"The power that sprang out of his renunciation has outspread into the world of today, reached, into all points of the compass and, penetrating all lands and homes, has brought new life, hope, solace, light, strength, joy and inspiration to literally countless millions of souls throughout the modern world."
 ..."His Sannyasa has transformed itself into a spiritual force that holds within itself the hope and promise of the future world-welfare and world-order, based upon a divine life of love, compassion, virtue and goodness. This solitary act of his Sannyasa has become a swelling flood of self-giving that marks the stream of this saint’s dedicated life through the better part of the past half century. By this, he proclaims the grand idea that renunciation is not to be a single act at some momentous occasion but that it should characterize your entire life and mark every thought, word and act throughout your life."

Early Morning Meditation talks from "Ponder These Truths"  by
Swami Chidananda

Ever Keep The Sublime Ideal Before You.
"Amongst the innumerable human beings on the surface of the earth, those few individuals who have before them an ideal and a goal, who live in order to strive, to fulfil an ideal and to attain a goal, they alone can truly be said to live their life in a very, very special way. For those who have no particular ideal before them to fulfil, who do not have as yet a clear-cut goal to attain, life is not being lived by them, but rather they are helplessly carried down this onward rushing stream called life. It is not they who are in charge, who are in control, who are engaged in a purposeful pursuit, but rather it is life in all its various implications that is in control." -Swami Chidananda  << More>>
"Yoga , A way of Life" by Swami Adhyatmananda
(New Release book )

  Ichhashakti, Kriyashakti and Jnanshakti

 "Whatever is seen or heard around us in this universe contains Prana inside them. Prana is the sum total of energy, alertness and consciousness. Prana is the most subtle. Breath is the external appearance of Prana. We can control subtle Prana after controlling physical Prana. It means by controlling external, physical and visible Pranic capacity, subtle inner consciousness can be controlled.

 All the functions of our body are connected with one another. The body is connected with Prana, Prana with senses, senses with mind, and mind with intelligence. Paramtattva is separate and not understandable by intelligence as it is beyond it. There are no words. (Yato Vacho Nivartante Aprapya Manasa Sah.) It can be obtained by continuous practice of Pranayama. It is not physical so it is not sensible."
-  Swami Adhyatmananda. <<More>>

 Goal  of Life
"The essence of all existence is evolution or constant realisation of the higher values of life. Prayer, service, devotion and meditation will lead you to a higher and nobler life. There is no pleasure in sense-objects. Eternal Bliss is in the Atman alone. Therefore embrace spirituality, practise purity, develop nobility, do charity and attain Divinity." 

"The great goal of life is the realisation of God. This human life is a rare chance given for attaining that destiny. We know also that we have within ourselves all the potencies of expressing that divinity. The real fact of our being is our essential Divinity. We have to raise this shining human being towards the Divine through constant contemplation of the Divine nature, always thinking about it and reflecting upon it, and expressing it through our thoughts, words and actions making the whole life as expression of that Divine Being, through deep meditation."
