Name of Lord Rama is the greatest purifier of the heart. It wipes
one's sins. Not only this, but it wipes away the sinful tendencies
as well. The Name is sweeter than the sweetest of objects. It is the
haven of peace. It is the very life of pure souls. It is the
purifier of all purifying agencies. It quenches the consuming fire
of worldly desires. It awakens the knowledge of God. It bathes the
aspirant in the, ocean of divine bliss. Glory to Sri Rama and His
None but the righteous can be truly happy. None but he who has
the correct sense of duty and the will for its implementation can be
said to live worthily. One must be imbued with a definite conviction
about the supremacy of moral principles, ethical values and
spiritual ideals. These ought to guide one's day-to-day actions and
serve as powerful means for the culture of the human personality.
That is the purpose of life. That is the way to Self-realisation.
That is the message and the mission of Lord Rama's Life on
earth......- Swami Sivananda
"Hanuman was the living embodiment of the power of Ram-Nam. He
was an ideal selfless worker, a true Karma Yogi who worked
desirelessly. He was a great devotee and an
exceptional Brahmachari or celibate. He served Sri Rama with pure
love and devotion, without expecting any fruit in return. He lived
only to serve Sri Rama."
" It is our ego-sense that we surrender, the idea “I am doing.” We surrender our self-will and put ourselves into His hands, so that we act as He dictates, we act as He teaches. So action is there, but no more self-will, no more action prompted by the mind, but action according to the will of God, according to the wisdom teachings of God and His saints."
When you put yourself under the will of God and His wisdom teachings, then you are a self-controlled person. You will not allow the senses to do whatever they wish or the mind to do whatever it wishes - Swami Chidananda.....<<More>>
