Quotes & Message of Pujya Swami Adhyatmanandaji Maharaj


"We are born, death is inevitable. Journey between birth and death is not Life, it is a slow journey towards death. Life we have to find. Life lived in the pursuit of SELF realization is the Goal of Life and can be achieved by "Jeevan Yoga" or Yoga, a way of LIFE. It brings peace and happiness of sound mind in sound body. Yogic living implies discriminative living. Yoga is equanimity, equipoise or equilibrium. It is skill in the performance of actions. Yoga is disconnection from union with pain and freedom from attachment and desires it is turning away of the senses from the objective universe and concentrating the mind on the SELF".

"WILL Power Wins ALL Powers".  Be cheerful. Be peaceful. Be Blissful. Enjoy your present moments and be with your family, eat together, pray together. Pray fervently, sincerely, and wholeheartedly. Prayer elevates the mind. It fills the mind with purity. Have perfect faith in the Lord's name. His name is your sole support and refuge. Call HIM by any name Ishwar, Allah, Jehovah, Ahura Mazda, Zande vats, Waheguru, Jesus, Moses, Buddha, Rama, Krishna, Durga, Kali, Ganesh, or Shirdi Saibaba or any other. In case you are initiated into Guru Mantra, do Japa of Guru Mantra with faith and sincerity."

“Each activity of Yogi should bring him near to the eternal unfailing beauty of the Soul. This is a real sense and high value of Yoga. Yoga is like a vast sky which can envelop everyone, those who want peace & harmony”.

"Yoga is eternal life in the soul or spirit. It transforms a man into divinity. It brings a message of hope to the forlorn, joy to the depressed, strength to the weak, and knowledge to the ignorant. Yoga way of Life brings happiness of sound mind in a sound body. Yogic living implies discriminative living. Yoga is equanimity, equipoise, or equilibrium. It is the secret master-key to open the realms of eternal bliss and deep abiding peace".

"Key to Bliss" - Denting of I (ego), Surrendering to the Lord and Selfless Service; are the true ways to achieve Bliss, lasting peace and real happiness"

"My Life is My Message."........."Don't be afraid of adversities, they make you strong"
Just as the deep-rooted tree stands tall in spite of the calamities in the form of severe storms, tornadoes, hail storms, or torrential rain, I have faced many adversities, ups & downs, impediments, agony, along the journey of 50 years of my monastic life and came out strong. Life has given me exuberance, joy, bubbling energy. Awakening of inner SELF lead me to spread the Glories of the DIVINE. Look at Nature, there is Fall & Spring, there is Sunrise & Sunset, there is Ebb & Flow. It is the Law of Nature. Ups & down is a part of Life. Don't be afraid of adversities, they make you strong. In all situations, be rooted in the Absolute Truth, Abide in the SELF, sing HIS Glories, Surrender at the holy feet of your Guru. Stick to the path guided by your Guru. Chant the Guru Mantra with unwavering faith. Hold on to Hari-Nama, the Lord's name is the solution for all the trials and tribulations of Life. Intensify your faith only on one thought " I am Thine, Thou art Mine, Thy will be done".  “O God, I am Thine, Thy wish is mine as I have none”.  Guru's Grace is unfailing; it is ever ready to help you. I have experienced in my life, you can too.

Divine Name is a safe boat that can take you to the other shore of fearlessness, freedom and bliss Immortal",  “In all conditions, I am Bliss, Bliss, and Bliss Absolute," says Swami Sivananda. Have Yearning for God-Realization.  

How simple, How sublime, How Divine are these Messages! How precious are these messages now when Pujya Swamiji is no longer with us in the Physical form! He is free from the bondage of the body and liberated now and has merged in the Infinite. << More>.>
