"The power to promote and reward, as also to demote and punish the individual and his fate in this world, lies within his mind, its thoughts and feelings. No external agency is necessary to bring this infallible fruition. As the growth and development of a seed, an embryo, or a cell designed and preserved by its own inner makeup, here too the causal forces for what one rightly deserves lurk within one’s own invisible bosom."

  • PR 25 Aug 2012 - We can Grow Everything in Us By Sraddha

    We have inherited a certain mento-intellectual constitution at birth. Then after birth, from the environment these are being acted upon. Initially the environments are provided by the parents and the elders. When you go to the school, the school will have a certain environment. So, inherited mento-intellectual constitution, this is being moderated, improved, or otherwise by the environments, and when you become an adult, you already have something in you and that will start expressing.

    Okay, find out whether it is sattvic, rajasic or tamasic. After finding it out, you decide this much is tamas, this much is rajas, and this much is sattva. After finding it out, what are you to do? You decide whether you want to be more & more sattvic. That is what the sastras would like you to be. Now, in order to bring about more sattva, what will you do? Try to emulate them, copy them, incorporate them in your system, and if you start incorporating and pursuing them for a while, you will find the rajasic constitution of yours changes into sattvic.




  • PR 29 Aug 2013 - Adjust and Accommodate to get over Interpersonal Issues

    While we do consider good behavior, bad behavior etc. let us understand the cardinal truth that anyone who has got a wrong behavior, he is not ultimately to be blamed for it. Once you accept you will not resent and revolt against the irregular behaviors of the others. Now, when you live in your own house, the members of the house are there. If you are in an ashram, the inmates of the ashram are there. I don’t think at any point of time you can have a feeling that, ‘He is not alright, so I will not get along with him.’ I say, you become the second criminal. The first criminal is his behavior is not alright. Seeing his misbehavior or wrong behavior if you feel, ‘I cannot get along with him’, I believe you are a double criminal or you incur a double crime. While you complain about his misbehavior, you are displaying a much greater misbehavior. ‘His behavior is not alright, it becomes difficult; still I will get along with you.’ If this is your attitude then you can be approved.

  • PR 25 Aug 2013 - Enlightened Outlook to transcend Grief

    If you want to live peacefully with confidence, strength, unshakability in this world, you have to either naturally have some qualities or develop them. And what are these qualities? Whatever naturally is there, let it be. If any one of them is a hindrance we must have a moderating and a sublimating process. When you consider like this… Desire and desirefulness are a constant and a powerful motivation in all people’s life. As the desire is powerful it also brings a lot of dejection, so many qualities like intolerance, jealousy, hatred and what not.



Poojya Swamiji says that the real focus

  • of devotional practices is not God, but the devotee's own mind and behaviour;
  • of karmayoga is not action but the attitude of the mind with which an action is performed;
  • of knowledge is not knowledge, but the purification and expansion of the seeker's mind.

  • Arya – The Man Striving for Evolution

    WEAKNESS is inborn in man. It is a sure symptom of growing life. It has to be recognized no doubt, but only to be overcome, gradually though not suddenly. Weakness is to give man its caution! It should sound the need, bestow inspiration to work for its redress, to gain ample strength and resolve.


  • From Knowledge to Knower, God to Devotee

    So, Jnaana is not something like knowing two plus three equals five. It is a kind of an integrated development of the human personality through purification, sublimation and refinement. We must undergo sensory refinement and restraint, mental moderation and sublimation, intelligential enlightenment and stabilization. Our heart must revel in emanating a number of interactional and behavioural virtues. Only when all these adorn the personality of the seeker, he becomes a Knower, says Krishna. And everything else is ignorance, he concludes emphatically.


  • Behaviour of the stable-minded

    W hen the yoga-sadhana takes one to spiritual introspection, which matures into Self-absorption and sthita-prajnata, that experience brings about a thorough revolution  in character, behaviour, perception and also interaction.  The bodily relationships appear to be too limited, even misplaced. Is not the body something to be cast aside?  Is one the body, or he merely has his body?  Why should whatever he has as different from whatever he is, blind him so much?   The material body is not what the spiritual Self is.  Man, the spiritual, has naturally now to imbibe spiritual feelings, views and standards.  So the  abhisneha , the small circle of fondness and identity,  melts off and a clear expansion takes its place.


  • A Great Association - 10

    The Vision behind CIRD After independence, our country rightly chose the motto “Satyam-eva jayate” (Truth alone triumphs) from Muṇḍakopanishad. But it ignored the very first statement of the same Upanishad: “Brahmavidyā sarva-vidyā-pratishṭhā” - The science of supreme Reality is the foundation of all other sciences. The supreme Reality being our own true Identity, the one Self of all, the...

  • 028 - Aayur Nashyati - Life is Transcient

    Every day life is seen reducing and youthfulness decaying. Days that are gone never come back. Time is devourer of the world. Wealth is as fickle as the breaking of the waves of water, and life as transient as lightning. Therefore, you who gives refuge to all, protect me now who has come to you for refuge.


  • 029 - Naastha dharme - Pray for Unwavering Devotion Alone

    O Lord, I have no confidence in dharma, or material wealth, or in enjoying the desired objects. Whatever comes in accordance with my past deeds, let that happen. O Lord, this is my much considered prayer: May I have unwavering devotion to your lotus feet in as many lives to come.

    Desires of the mind are the real bondage. Liberation indeed consists in the attenuation of desires. Therefore, O Rama, abandon all desires, and thereupon cast aside even the yearning for liberation.
