451 – Bliss and love

 

“Another name for God is bliss. No ego, no me, no you, no office. Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram.”

Life itself is a yogic sadhana.

Bliss is of two kinds; one is the bliss of worldly pleasures and the other is the bliss of Brahma, Brahmananda, which manifests and awakens from within, or of the self, atmananda. Worldly bliss is the result of external experiences and this bliss which is obtained from worldly objects is perishable and a womb of sorrow. Continue reading

262 – Mother Ganga

A couple of days ago I attended the Ganga arati in Varanasi. It was an experience of a lifetime. Nobody was pushing and every one’s eyes were open with avid adoration and devotion. Hands joined in the prayer pose (Namaste). Of course, hands unjoined to take photos with their phones. There was no chatter, we all watched with love and fervor for Ma Ganga, the river which washes our karmas away. Continue reading

225 – Daily Spiritual Practices

In order to practice a spiritual life and enjoy the fruit of the sadhana, it must become a part of us. Easter is upon us and we associate it with the material things like gifts and chocolates. Easter is a time of new beginnings and renewal. However it is not only when Easter is approaching that we should think that we should renew ourselves spiritually.

Let us see what we can incorporate in our daily life:

  • Become observant and observe the spiritual glow of people, places, and things. It is a sign of rebirth.
  • Give your undivided attention to whatever you are doing and be aware of the constant renewal of life around you.
  • Become aware of God’s mercy in the past and his discretion in the future. Live in the present, giving it your undivided attention.
  • Practice compassion, sensitivity and be aware of the pain and suffering of others.
  • When you become aware, neutral and detached you are connected to the universe.
  • Prayers are an essential part of our lives.
  • Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.
  • Hope and gratitude go hand in hand. Hope is very powerful and being empathetic to the needs of others, we gift them hope. Gratitude is that never take anything for granted.
  • Love and nurture yourself and listen to the voice of the cosmos.

It is not difficult to include these practices. Even if we start with one, we are on the path to welcome Easter and it becomes a way of life for us.

“Lord, we lift our eyes to you. As the sun rises, may this moment stay with us, reminding us to look for the beautiful colors of promise in your word. Lord, we lift our prayers to you. As the dew falls, may we breathe this morning in and know that like the earth, you sustain us, keep us and work within us always.”

216 – Enchantment of the Mother

“The most powerful method of obtaining God’s grace is worship of the Divine Mother. She is the embodiment of compassion and kindness, the pure image of mother love. She is the ocean of forgiveness. Whether it is the Divine Mother or my mother, wherever there is mother’s energy, it is always in the image of love and kindness. Her real form is forgiveness, no matter how naughty her children maybe.”

Swami Satyananda Saraswati. Continue reading

163 – What is love

How do we become capable of love? Osho explains it very beautifully. Love is spontaneous. It cannot be controlled. We cannot make love; we cannot do anything about it. And the more we do, the more we will miss it. We have to allow it to happen. We are not needed for it. We cannot absent ourselves and therefore, we have become incapable of love. Continue reading

078 – Two Shlokas

“Under the shade of the Banyan tree, the old guru and the young disciple are seated. The Guru is not saying anything, but the questions and doubts of the disciple are getting cleared one by one.” Swami Satyananda said that when he sat with Swami Sivanananda this happened to him. The questions ceased and the intellect eased. A man who is really great does not know he is great. He is humble because he is practicing or acting with humility. Continue reading
