"Self-realization is meant to ensure fulfilment for one’s own self. It is not reaching somewhere or getting at something external, like going to the peak of a mountain. The attainment is in dissolving the mind and intelligence, and getting into the very core of oneself. In other words, it is like multiplying everything with zero."

The Guiding force of Narayanashrama Tapovanam & Center for Inner Resources Development

Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha



Everything in our life proceeds from inside. First of all, we have a thought, an idea or an emotion. From that follow the external actions and interactions. The cause of everything that comes to your life is within you. So, if you have to treat or correct anything, treat your own internal being. Everything that you speak, everything that you do and everything that you think emerge from inside. They may have relationship with the external objects and events, but the final outcome is again upon your own self. So, the inner being is the source as well as the terminus of everything that happens in our life.

This inner sphere should be constantly attended to. Make sure that whatever you do, whatever you talk or whatever you experience, is always enriching, empowering, ennobling and elevating. To make it so – to make sure that it is always so – will be your constant task, ceaseless effort.
