Deepavali , A Festival of light, Joy & Illumination ( Nov 3, 2010 - Nov, 6, 2010 )

"O man! wake up from the slumber of ignorance. Realise the constant and eternal light of the Soul which neither rises nor sets, through meditation and deep inquiry.

 .....Celebrate the real Deepavali by living in Brahman, and enjoy the eternal bliss of the soul. The sun does not shine there, nor do the moon and the stars, nor do lightnings shine and much less fire. All the lights of the world cannot be compared even to a ray of the inner light of the Self. Merge yourself in this light of lights and enjoy the supreme Deepavali".

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

Arjuna's Complex

"Arjuna was not able to liberate himself from himself. He was caught in his own view of things, in his own sentiments, in his own emotions, in his own reactions. He was caught and he was in a pitiable condition. And it required all patience and effort on the part of Jagad-Guru Sri Krishna to free Arjuna from himself and to enable him to see himself in the right perspective and to be fully and willingly prepared to follow the lead of Sri Krishna. Then the problem gradually began to resolve itself. Arjuna found that he was able to free himself. From whom? From himself. That is the inner tattva (truth), outcome, fruit of the Gita—not I, not I, but Thou."

"But Arjuna did not yield, did not give up his self-opinion easily. Difficult was the task. He made Bhagavan go through sixteen chapters of teachings before he finally saw the wisdom. He especially got this clarity after the tenth and eleventh chapters. So, deeply one must ponder these two chapters. For all of us have within us the situation of Arjuna in some way or other. It is the crucial problem of the jivatma—its unwillingness to renounce itself for a higher light, higher wisdom."  - Swami Chidananda  << More>>

Divine Inspiration
  • A good word for a bad one is worth much but costs little. Kindness does not consist in gifts, but in gentleness and generosity.
  • Bear no envy. Commit no slander. Speak no falsehood. Practice no deceit. Harbor no malice.You will be ever joyful, happy and peaceful.
  • Sacrifice and service are your two hands. Freedom and peace are your two legs. Love and bliss are your two eyes. Truth and devotion are your two ears. Self- knowledge is your mouth. Perfection is, indeed, heart and soul.
  • The Sweetness of life is devotion. The fragrance of life is generosity. The pivot of life is meditation . The goal of life is Self- Realization.
