"Glory of Guru-Bhakti Yoga" by Swami Sivananda on auspicious Guru Purnima (July 9, 2017)

" Worship the Guru with the flowers of faith and devotion. Satsanga with the Guru is the first pillar in the temple of Self-realisation. Grace of God takes the form of Guru. To see the Guru is to see God. Blind is the man who has not seen the divine Master. There is but one religion, the religion of devotion and love to Guru."
 
"Everyone who longs to transcend misery and obtain joy and happiness in life should sincerely practise Guru-Bhakti Yoga. True lasting happiness can be had by taking recourse to Guru Seva Yoga. Guru-Bhakti Yoga confers immortality, eternal bliss, freedom, perfection, perennial joy and everlasting peace.

"An earnest and sincere disciple gives his whole heart and soul to the service of his preceptor. An earnest disciple finds means to serve his Guru, under all circumstances. He who endures all the difficulties while serving his Guru conquers his lower nature. Disciple must be ever grateful to his Guru who has shown the path to peace."

"Everyone who longs to transcend misery and obtain joy and happiness in life should sincerely practise Guru-Bhakti Yoga. True lasting happiness can be had by taking recourse to Guru Seva Yoga.  Swami Sivananda << Read More>>

Early Morning Meditation Talks from Ponder These Truths by Sri Swami Chidananda

"The Guru is His Teachings" 

 "Just as the Guru is channel for the individual soul to re-link itself with the universal Soul, even so, a channel between our Guru and ourselves is called Guru- bhakti. True Guru-bhakti is divine power,  it is divine force."

"The more adverse the circumstances, the greater the manifestation of grace; the greater the manifestation of Guru kripa. God's grace and Guru Kripa are the obverse and reverse of the same coin.
 Guru Kripa is God's grace manifesting in and through the Guru."-

"It is the Guru that points out the path and makes us see the path clearly. He points out the pitfalls and dangers upon the path, makes us alert, vigilant jagrit. And, even as the sun initiates activity,  so the Guru inspires us to arise awake, seek knowledge, attain illumination and become forever blessed. All this and more the Guru does."

 What is the sun if not its light? The sun is no sun if there is no light. The sun is the sun because it radiates perennial light, an inexhaustible, unbroken supply of light even so,  the Guru is His jnana upadesa." - Swami Chidananda

" Glory To Guru " by  Sri Swami Adhyatmananda

"Gurupurnima is the day for worshipping the GURU. The Guru is a Master, but He never makes His disciple a slave. Entire mission of Guru is to turn His disciple into none else but great Guru only. The Guru says “AHAM BRAHMASMI”, I’m Brahman. But never the less “TAT TWAM ASI” you are that only. This purnima is a full moon day. When there is no hindrance between sun and moon, this moon shines in its full bloom likewise when disciple totally surrenders to His Guru, he too shines with Brahma Vidya. Brahma Vidya is knowledge of Absolute. Brahma Vidya is the highest knowledge after knowing that nothing remains to be known. It is the grace of Guru upon his beloved disciple that after having received Brahma Vidya, disciple has not to strive for any more gain. He becomes full; he becomes contented, he rejoices supreme BLISS. He dives deep in the eternity and divinity."

A Guru is necessary. Never finds fault in Guru, any action by Guru will have a purpose in that; there is a meaning in that. Accept His command, follow His instruction, just be humble, feel his hardship and serve Him whole heartedly."- Swami Adhyatmananda  <<  Read More> >

 Prana - "The true meaning of Prana is not only breath. The Prana is energy. It is universal power, brightness, light and intelligence. All these cosmic energies are named as Prana."Yatkinchit Jagat Sarvam Drishyate Shruyatepiva..This Prana is filled in all that we see and hear, the inside and outside of all things, all movement etc. in this world.
 The Prana is the source of all capabilities and the power in the universe. Prana is the only power behind the normal functioning of the system of respiration (inhalation and exhalation), blood circulation, digestion, excretion of urine and stool, system producing semen, structure of our bones and also the nervous system.The working abilities of sensory organs and motor organs improve as each cell  gets extra nutrition. The secret of beauty of skin, shining of the face, brightness of the eyes, intelligence power and development of mental power is the result of the practice of Pranayama. The practice of Pranayama means oneness with cosmic energy. Pranayama Sadhana opens the doors of subtle life from the gross life "-  Swami Adhyatmananda. << Read More>>
