"The Transcendental Divinity That Is Lord Rama" by Sri Swami Sivananda
On Sacred Sri Ramnavmi April 21, 2021
"The Name of Lord Rama is the greatest purifier of the heart. It wipes away all 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 Name!
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 << Read More>>
Early Morning Meditation talks from "Ponder These Truths" by Sri Swami Chidananda
" 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."
Surrender and activity do not conflict with each other, but are part and parcel of a total act of spiritualising yourself completely, stepping aside and asking God to take over. If God takes over, everything is under control, everything is working perfectly. If we are there, nothing is under control—mind is not under control, senses are not under control, everything is upside down. 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. You will only do that which is in accordance with the will of God, the teachings of God and the saints. If it is not in consonance with the will of God and the teachings of the saints, you will not do it." - Swami Chidananda << Read More>>
21th Brahmotsav of Sri Sri Ashtalaxmi Bahvan & Sri Chidananda Dhyana Mandir/Sri Ashtalaxmi Darshan (April 29, 2021)
The Upnisads, the essence of Vedas, sing the glory of the Mother-worship, "Matru Devo Bhava" is the famous saying of the Upnisad. When God, Himself incarnates as Mother, naturally it brings additional harmony to the Mother-worship. Laxmi is not money only. Patience, discrimination, our progeny, education, victory etc. are our wealth. The greatest wealth is character, patience and discrimination. - Swami Sivananda

Asthma: Asthma is a chronic disease that affects your airways. Your airways are tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs. If you have asthma, the inside walls of your airways become sore and swollen. That makes them very sensitive, and they may react strongly to things that you are allergic to or find irritating. When your airways react, they get narrower and your lungs get less air. This can cause wheezing, coughing, chest tightness and trouble breathing, especially early in the morning or at night.
Regular practice of Bhujangasana, Dhanurasana, Shavasana, Ujjai, Kapalbhati, Bhastrika, Omkar, Jalneti, Sutraneti and Kunjal processes can be very beneficial in managing the disease of asthma but proper medical consultation should be obtained. Management includes avoiding asthma triggers and tracking your symptoms. You may need to regularly take long-term control medications to prevent flare-ups and short-term "rescue" medications to control symptoms once they start.. << Read More>>
