OM Namo Bhagawate Sivanandaya!
OM Namo Bhagawate Chidanandaya!
OM Namo Narayanaya!
"This is that Atman even with regard to the letters (of the word OM); it is the Omkara with its parts. The quarters are the parts, and the parts the quarters. The parts of Om are "A," "U" and "M"."
In the previous Mantras the Atman has been described from the viewpoint of the states of waking, dream, sleep and Turiya. The same Atman is described from the viewpoint of the sound OM in the following Mantras. This will help meditation on Om. Om is analyzed into its constituent sound elements 'A,' 'U' and 'M' in order to identify them with the states of waking, dream and sleep. Those which constitute the quarters of the Atman are the letters of AUM, "A", "U" and "M". << Read More>>

Early Morning Meditation talks from "Ponder These Truths" by Swami Chidananda
"When you wake up in the morning, you wake up into something very special. This emergence should constitute for you a rebirth into sadhana. In this new birth there should be no more slackness, no more pretence, and no more half-heartedness. Therefore, may we be reborn not once, not twice, but again and again until there is no longer any necessity or need for any such rebirth or re-emergence.”So Says Swami Sivananda
“Life is an inward journey of the spirit. It is a journey that has no arriving or reaching, but a journey of knowing. It is a journey without movement. It starts from the point where you have to arrive."-- Swami Chidananda ” << Read More>>
Learning of "Jeevan Yog" from a Yoga Acharya Sri Swami Adhyatmananda
Through TV episodes of "Jeevan Yoga" Series by Doordarshan Girnar
Surya Namaskara or Sun Salutation ("salute to the sun"), is a common sequence of Hatha Yoga asanas. Its origins lie in a worship of Surya, the Hindu Solar deity. This sequence of movements and poses can be practiced on varying levels of awareness, ranging from that of physical exercise in various styles, to a complete sadhana, which incorporates asana, pranayama, mantra and chakra meditation.
The physical base of the practice links together twelve asanas in a dynamically performed series. These asanas are ordered so that they alternately stretch the spine backwards and forwards. When performed in the usual way, each asana is moved into with alternate inhalation and exhalation (except for the sixth asana where the breath is held in external suspension).
A full round of Surya namaskara is considered to be two sets of the twelve poses with a change in the second set to moving the opposite leg first through the series.
