Worship to Lord Shiva on " Shivaratri"- (March  6, 2008)
  Swami Sivananda

......"Abhisheka is a part of Siva Puja. Without Abhisheka, worship of Siva is incomplete. During Abhisheka Rudra, Purushasukta, Chamaka, Maha-mrityunjaya Japa, etc., are chanted in a particular rhythm and order. Monday is very important day for Lord Siva and the thirteenth day of the fortnight (Pradosha) is very sacred. On these days, devotees of Siva worship Him with special Puja, Abhisheka with Ekadasa-Rudra, Archana, offering plenty of Prasad and illumination."

"The greatest and the highest Abhisheka is to pour the waters of pure love on the Atmalinga of the lotus of the heart. The external Abhisheka with various objects will help the growth of devotion and adoration for Lord Siva and eventually lead to internal Abhisheka with pure abundant flow of love." - Swami Sivananda <<More>>

Glories of Sankirtan

"Sankirtan is the easiest, surest, safest, quickest way to attain God consciousness.
Sankirtan is singing God's name with Bhava, Prem or divine feeling. Sankirtan is the Svarupa (essential nature) of God. Dhvani is Sankirtan. Sankirtan is the essence of the Vedas. Sankirtan removes the impurities of the mind (Mala); it steadies the mind and checks its tendency to vacillate (Vikshepa); and ultimately it tears the veil of ignorance too (Avarana), and brings the Sadhaka (aspirant) face to face with God."  - Swami Sivananda

 Sri Swami Chidananda

A Positive Mind-your Greatest Asset
Mind, is your greatest asset, your greatest wealth. It has been given to you to be utilised as the greatest thing that has ever been given to a being, for it throws wide open the portals to liberation and perfection. Mind is the one great endowment of the Universal Soul to the individual being. Mind is the endowment that makes man God. May you use it in a wise and positive way and become blessed! .......Swami Chidananda <<More >>

"Addiction" Is there a hope for Addict?
Certainly,  Systemic approach through Yogic Treatment could cure the addiction.
Yogic Treatment
The addict gets a wonderful help from Yoga. Yoga has really proved very helpful. It releases an addict from his addiction gradually that too, this is achieved with such an ease that the addict hardly comes to know where from he has inherited the new life. Spring follows the winter slowly and adorns the whole world. Similarly in the life of an addict Yoga-abhyas instills new consciousness, new enthusiasm, fullness and the most important matter is that Yoga-abhyas creates an irrepressible desire to live his life fully......Swami Adhyatmananda  << More>>
