"Serve Humanity and Seek Divinity" - by Swami Sivananda

"Come, come, wake up now. Claim your birthright. Recognize your 
identity. Enter into experience of the Divine Joy, Peace and Wisdom 
which is your Eternal Svarupa (essential nature). O beloved friend! O 
Radiant Atman! Do it now. You are indeed Divine. You are unchangeable, 
infinite, immortal Atman."

"Compassion to all is the key to blessedness. Humility is the highest 
virtue. Truthfulness is the greatest treasure. Self-control is the 
supreme wealth to possess. Egoism is the worst blemish and hence to be 
eradicated in toto."

"Be an ideal individual. Become a spiritually-illumined soul. Thus crown 
your life with Wisdom, Peace and Blessedness. You will then become a 
blessing to all mankind. I wish you joy and peace".

Early Morning Meditation Talk from "Ponder These Truths" by Swami Chidananda

"Based Your Life Upon Wisdom"

"Beloved Immortal Atman! Blessed children of the Divine! Blessed are all 
of you who have entered into a life that leads to the realisation of the 
divinity inherent in you as your own essential nature. In all that you 
do in this life, day by day, morning till night, in all that you say and 
do, make sure that it springs from wisdom and not from wrong 
understanding or ignorance. Where there is wisdom as the basis of your 
life, as the basis of your action, there is no sorrow, there will be no 
sorrow for you. Where you allow wisdom to be thwarted by 
thoughtlessness, forgetfulness, heedlessness, the letting go of 
awareness, wisdom becomes clouded. Letting go of awareness makes for 
your sleep. Falling asleep means ceasing to know anything, being in the 
dark, and such darkness the great sages term as avidya, ignorance. Such 
a state of ignorance is due to letting go of the awareness, “I am 
divine, I am divine.”- Swami Chidananda << More >>. 

Learning of  "Jeevan Yog" from a Yoga Acharya Swami Adhyatmananda
Through TV episodes of "Jeevan Yoga" Series by Doordarshan Girnar

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 

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

Q & A on Spiritual Life and Sadhana from “May I Answer That?”- by Holy 
Master Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj.

Who is God? What is God? Is there a God? Where is God? How to realise God?

Man wants an answer to these eternal questions. Certainly there is God. 
God exists. He is the only reality. God is your creator, saviour and 
redeemer. He is all-pervading. He dwells in your heart. He is always 
near you. He is nearer to you than your jugular vein or nose. He loves 
you. He can talk to you. You cannot find God by the intellect. But, you 
can find Him by feeling, meditation, experience and realisation."......

"Reduce yourself into zero before God. Only then will God completely 
take care of and guide you. Only then surrender becomes complete. Forget 
your own interests, your own longings, your own desires. You will attain 
the bliss of the Supreme Self. Crucify, sacrifice the lower self, if you 
wish to have union with God. Empty your egoism. You will be filled with 
God. Lose your personality. You will find the Divine Life. You will 
realise God."
