  Auspicious Sri Ramnavami Utsav  ( March 24, 2010)

"Sri Rama was the Lord Hari Himself, incarnate on earth for the destruction of Ravana. Lord Rama was the best of men with a sterling character. He was the very image of love. He was an ideal son, an ideal brother, an ideal husband, an ideal friend and an ideal king. He can be taken to embody all the highest ideals of man. He led the ideal life of a householder to teach the tenets of righteousness to humanity. He ruled His people so well that it came to be known as Ram-Rajya, which meant the rule of righteousness, the rule which bestows happiness and prosperity on all.".......
 "Ram-Nam burns ignorance, passion and sin. With or without knowledge, correctly or incorrectly, when the word "Rama" is pronounced it showers a rain of good upon the devotee. Sri Rama is Brahman who takes one across the ocean of worldly existence. Rama is one in across whom the Yogis sport, that is, the Self within"- Swami Sivananda...........<< More>>

Sri Hanuman Jayanti ( March 30, 2010)

Where Hanuman is, there are Sri Rama and Sri Sita and wherever Sri Rama and Sri Sita are praised and their deeds recited, there Hanuman is. He is a Chiranjeevi. He is everywhere. He who has eyes and devotion beholds him and receives his blessing.

Glory to Hanuman, the blessed devotee of Lord Rama. Glory, glory to Sri Anjaneya, the mighty hero, undaunted warrior and learned Brahmacharin, the like of whom the world has not yet seen and will not see in time to come.  - Swami Sivananda  << More>>

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

From Knowledge to Experience "Knowledge is the knowing of things and wisdom is the understanding and experiencing of things.....When knowledge rises above a certain point it matures into wisdom and gains a loftiness. Then it turns into a flash of intuition. Everything becomes revealed, everything becomes understood instantaneously. Intuition replaces knowledge, knowing turns into being, and life becomes infused by wisdom."

"This process of the fruition of knowledge comes through a constant, earnest, sincere and reverential process of contemplating knowledge, reflecting over knowledge that has been obtained and, day by day, trying to apply this knowledge, live in the light of this knowledge, bring this knowledge into our daily thoughts, feelings, attitudes and reactions to life around us."

"Ponder day after day and live a life of knowledge as an applied process-knowledge in practice, knowledge in living. And thus make life itself a gradual process of the fruition of this knowledge into wisdom and ultimately into experience that makes you a liberated being."....... -  Swami Chidananda << More>>

Surya Namskar - Sun Salutation
Surya Namaskara or Sun Salutation ("salute to the sun"), is a common sequence of Hatha Yoga asanas. Its origins lie in a worship of Surya, the Hindu Solar deity. This sequence of movements and poses can be practised on varying levels of awareness, ranging from that of physical exercise in various styles, to a complete sadhana, which incorporates asana, pranayama, mantra and chakra meditation.

The physical base of the practice links together twelve asanas in a dynamically performed series. These asanas are ordered so that they alternately stretch the spine backwards and forwards. When performed in the usual way, each asana is moved into with alternate inhalation and exhalation (except for the sixth asana where the breath is held in external suspension). A full round of Surya namaskara is considered to be two sets of the twelve poses with a change in the second set to moving the opposite leg first through the series.<< More>>

 Divya Jivan March 2010
Divya Jivan Gujarati
So Says Sri Swami Sivananda
  •  If you are sincere and regular in your Sadhana, The Lord will bestow HIS fullest Grace and crown your life with Peace, bliss and immortality.
  • Dispassion and faith are pre-requisites for Spiritual Sadhana. Persevere. Slowly increase the time spent in religious practices, by reducing wastage in idle talks, and other useless pursuits.
  • An aspirant must have purity of mind, a real thirst for knowledge and perseverance. Do the work of self -purification rigorously. Grow in spiritual strength day by day. No one who is thirsting for name, fame, power and lordship and enjoyment here, or elsewhere, can achieve success in Yoga.
  •  Create your inner world. Carry with you, your own inner companions, viz; Shanti ( peace), Santosh ( contentment), enquiry and courage. The real spiritual progress of the aspirant is measured by the extent to which he achieves inner tranquility.
  •   Remember and practice the six Ss. Shanti,  Santosh, Satsanga, Satya, Serenity and Seclusion. Hear what is auspicious, see what is auspicious. Do what is auspicious. You will soon attain Self-realization.
