"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."

Prabhaata Rashmih talks by Poojya Swamiji
  • PR 06 Jun 2014 - Interactional Sadhana is an extension of Absorptional Sadhana - 4

    Sri Rama was banished to the forest. Sita was abandoned by Rama. Pancha Pandavas with Draupadi lived thirteen years outside the palace. All these persecutions they underwent. Compared to them, what is your persecution? You are not able to make friends with two or three people. That is all your persecution. My dear souls, please be fond of others. Give a place for them. Do not try to complain and find faults with others. You must be able to live harmoniously with even the most faulty person. Suppose you have an invalid child, don’t you accept him? Suppose you have an insane brother, do you not accept him? So, you want blood relationship to be a precondition for your fondness. I am very sorry.

  • PR 05 Jun 2014 - Interactional Sadhana is an extension of Absorptional Sadhana - 3

    So, our sadhana is actually a very concentric or focused interaction with the mind until at last, the mind’s activity, modification comes to a stop and you get absorbed in the mind’s own essence or the self. How long will you do it? For about an hour or half? Then you will get up. Out of the 24 hours of the day, even if you sleep for seven hours, 17 hours are left. In the 17 hours, you may spend maximum two hours for looking after your body, answering the calls of nature, bathing, eating etc. So, 15 hours of the day you are wakeful and you are interacting. In the interaction, sometimes you may do introspection using the mind and intelligence alone. But normally, the introspection will be on the object world and object processes and pursuits. That cannot be meditation at all!

  • PR 04 Jun 2014 - Interactional Sadhana is an extension of Absorptional Sadhana - 2

    If you are able to do this interactional sublimational process, I don’t think there will be any necessity for meditation. Simply you sit. Without any effortful meditation, the mind will remain absorbed. Because it has been able to deal with the triple effects or reactions – desire, hatred and fear during the course of the interactions. The subject treated is the same mind. So, if the mind is treated in interactional sadhana, it is the same mind that you are treating to get absorbed into the self. So, the meditation if at all will be greatly facilitated. Interactionally you are sublimated. When there is no interaction you will not have anything to sublimate. Even in the interactional level you have sublimated your mind. So, when you sit in meditation there is no sublimation necessary because the mind is already sublimated during the course of the interactions. Then free of interactions what is there to sublimate?



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.

  • Gurupoorṇimā – the Teachers’ Day

    Participants of the Gurupoornima Retreat 2015 Dear and blessed Brahmavidyā seekers and seekers of knowledge: Every year, I have been speaking to you on the occasion of Gurupoorṇimā.

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...

  • 033 - Ankolam Nijabeeja - Devotion is One-Pointed Yearning For The Lotus Feet

    As the ankola seed finds its way to the mother tree from which it has fallen, as the iron needle irresistibly moves to the magnet placed nearby, as the chaste woman looks solely to her husband for delight, as the growing creeper rests fully upon the tree for its support, as the flowing river rushes to the ocean to merge in it – in the same manner when the mind seeks out ardently the two lotus-feet of Pashupati (Śiva), and finding them at last, remains fixed to them always, then that indeed is called devotion.


  • 034 - Yo Antah Pravishya - The Indweller who Enlivens Our Body, Mind and Intelligence

    Prostration to You, O Bhagavān, the supreme Consciousness, possessor of all powers, who, having entered my being, has activated my dormant speech, and likewise has empowered the other organs such as the hands, feet, ears, skin and all the vital forces, by virtue of His mere Presence.


  • 035 - Satyena Labhyastapasa - Disciplines to Realize The Brilliance Within

    The Self, which the pure-minded ascetics realize as the taintless brilliance within, is to be attained through relentless pursuit of truth, austerity, integral knowledge, and continence.
