"Every moment of your life you are being carried to fulfilment, irresistibly. Everything that comes to you does so to improve, correct or alter your nature, thereby taking you nearer perfection. So, whenever agitation assails your mind, ponder over this truth again and again."

  • PR 16 Dec 2013 - Dissolve Differential Outlook and make the Mind Pure

    This meditation is a special state. It has to be had by sitting in a room closing the doors and windows. I get into it and I get out of it. Why do I need meditation and absorption? Because whatever I am now is not what I want. The present is a worldly involvement. Meditation and absorption are a divine involvement. When is this difference going to be undone and removed? I have 2 hours or 2 1/2 hours of divine absorption, as against that 21 1/2 hours of worldly involvement. Will there be a time when both of them will equal and divine absorption will enhance, will increase and exceed the worldly involvement and finally all will become divine absorption?

  • PR 27 Jan 2012 - Our Freedom is Only to Improve Our Mind and Intelligence

    Everywhere it is prakriti's gunas that compel us, persuade us, exhort us to act. The man deluded by ego and egoism, he alone says “I am doing, I have done.” Are you doing? What? We have a sensory plane where they work with their potentials. You have a mental plane, an oral plane, your tongue, vocal system they express themselves. Your mind thinks. That is also an expression. Your intelligence also expresses itself. All these are expressing with the capacities and characters they have. Where is the question of your doing anything?

    If you observe your life, you are only employing whatever you have. And even in the manner in which you employ, there is always an inbuilt nature. If you start thinking in this manner, I make a proposition there is nothing called achievement in this world. Everything is an unfoldment. When you allow the unfolding process by becoming more and more of a zero, then you will find, without any let or hindrance, your mind and its tendencies will express themselves. The intelligence with its character and quality will also contribute and guide in its own manner. And there will be a very smooth flow like the flow of Ganges or Brahmaputra.

  • PR 15 Dec 2013 - Inculcate Values from Ramayana

    So the two values that we have upheld is, one is consider the whole earth to be your family. Another is Motherland and everything about the Motherland is far superior to even the heaven. Now these are the two values which have been able to inspire and bring about a value structure in the country.



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.

All people in our country are supposed to spend this month in special...


  • 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.


  • 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...

  • 030 - Bandho Hi - Cast Aside Even the Yearning For Liberation

    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.


  • 031 - Vishuddha Sattvasya - The Qualities of a Pure Being

    For attaining everlasting peace and contentment, one must try to attain the Viśuddha-sattva state by cleansing the mind of all its desires. By chanting the shloka again and again, our focus remains on the qualities of this state, and we feel a loving compulsion to acquire these qualities. More and more identification with these qualities leads to Self-realization.


  • 032 - Nishkinchanaa - The Bliss of Non-Expectation

    Those exalted souls – who have nothing in their possession, whose minds are lost in the romance of devotion to Me, who are given to composure, filled with affection towards all creatures, and whose minds are completely free of desires – incessantly taste the bliss emerging from the state of non-expectation. That is the unique bliss born of Me. How can the others get to know of it?
