(This is from message delivered on TV Media by H. H. Sri Swami Adhyatmanandaji Maharaj on the occasion of His 75th Birthday Celebrations on May 3, 2020)
"What can I share about my life journey at this age of 75? What is my message?
"My Life is My Message."........."Don't be afraid of adversities, they make you strong".
Just as the deep-rooted tree stands tall in spite of the calamities in the form of severe storms, tornadoes, hail storms, or torrential rain, I have faced many adversities, ups & downs, impediments, agony, along the journey of 50 years of my monastic life and came out strong. Life has given me exuberance, joy, bubbling energy. Awakening of inner SELF lead me to spread the Glories of the DIVINE. Look at Nature, there is Fall & Spring, there is Sunrise & Sunset, there is Ebb & Flow. It is the Law of Nature. Ups & down is a part of Life. Don't be afraid of adversities, they make you strong. In all situations, be rooted in the Absolute Truth, Abide in the SELF, sing HIS Glories, Surrender at the holy feet of your Guru. Stick to the path guided by your Guru. Chant the Guru Mantra with unwavering faith. Hold on to Hari-Nama, the Lord's name is the solution for all the trials and tribulations of Life. Intensify your faith only on one thought " I am Thine, Thou art Mine, Thy will be done". “O God, I am Thine, Thy wish is mine as I have none”. Guru's Grace is unfailing; it is ever ready to help you. I have experienced in my life, you can too.
The secret of my joy in life (of 75 years) is unbroken Guru Smarana, faith in my GURU, abiding at the Holy feet of my GURU. Ever flowing Grace & Blessings of my Guru is the supreme joy of my Life." - H.H. Sri Swami Adhyatmananda
"WILL Power Wins ALL Powers". Be cheerful. Be peaceful. Be Blissful. Enjoy your present moments and be with your family, eat together, pray together. Pray fervently, sincerely, and wholeheartedly. Prayer elevates the mind. It fills the mind with purity. Have perfect faith in the Lord's name. His name is your sole support and refuge. Call HIM by any name Ishwar, Allah, Jehovah, Ahura Mazda, Zande vats, Waheguru, Jesus, Moses, Buddha, Rama, Krishna, Durga, Kali, Ganesh, or Shirdi Saibaba or any other. In case you are initiated into Guru Mantra, do Japa of Guru Mantra with faith and sincerity."
“Each activity of Yogi should bring him near to the eternal unfailing beauty of
the Soul. This is a real sense and high value of Yoga. Yoga is like a vast sky
which can envelop everyone, those who want peace & harmony”.
"Key to Bliss" - Denting of I (ego), Surrendering to the Lord and Selfless Service; are the true ways to achieve Bliss, lasting peace and real happiness"
- Brahmleen H. H. Sri Swami Adhyatmananda
