God Alone Is

Swami Atmaswarupananda from Sivananda Ashram Rishikesh talks about the foundation of Swami Sivananda’s teachings: God alone is. Swami Sivananda taught differently to different disciples. Swami Sivananda’s disciples have different characters and follow different Sadhanas. But there is something in common: The deep conviction that God alone is. The heart of Gurudev’s teaching is the same everywhere: God alone is without a second.

Goal of Life is God Realization

Yoga Master Swami Sivananda reminded us again and again: the Goal of Life is God Realization. What does this mean? What does God realization mean for you? Is it a faith, a conviction, a point of view? Ideally, God realization is something which transforms your thinking and action. God realization means: God becomes real for you. Self realization means: Your true Self becomes real for you. God is your true Self.

Obedience is Better than Reverence


Reverence to God, to the Scriptures, to the the tradition, and to God is good. It also helps for experiencing pleasure, to have a good feeling, a feeling of protection and of being blessed. But the main purpose of a Guru is to help to overcome the ego of the disciple. The disciple must understand this – and agree to it. Only then a Guru-disciple-relationship is possible. Devotion to Guru and God is important – but to put the spiritual teachings into practice is most important. Allow God and Guru to work through your body and mind – allow God and Guru to mould you.

This is the essence of this talk by Swami Atmaswarupananda at Sivananda Ashram Rishikesh February 2014. http://www.sivanandaonline.org, http://www.yoga-vidya.org
