The power of prayer is indescribable. Its glory is ineffable. Sincere devotees only realise its
usefulness and splendour.
Sit not idly craving God to help thee, but be up and doing as God helps those who help
themselves. Do the best you can and leave the rest to God.
Serve the devotees. Remain in their company. Do Japa and Kirtan. Study Ramayana and
Bhagavatam. You will soon develop devotion. The Divine Grace will descend upon you.

Married life can never be an obstruction to those who are endowed with dispassion and
detachment to worldly objects and who consider that life is intended to mould one’s own self by
drawing lessons from the university of Nature. Study the lives of saints like Thyagaraja,
Ekanath, Narsi Mehta, Bhadrachalam Ramdas, Tukaram, Namdev, Jayadeva, Chaitanya and
Kabir. Probe deep into the world and the way in which the above-mentioned saints and a host of
others actually led…

The tendency to persevere, to persist in spite of hindrances, discouragements and impossibilities – it is this that distinguishes the strong soul from the weak. A man of strong will and perseverance never meets with failures, He attains success in all his undertakings.
When you embark on a project you should not leave it till you attain complete success. Pursue it resolutely. A man of diligence, vigilance and strong resolution grows into a genius.
The nerve that never relaxes, the…

Every day, in the morning, we all need to recharge our spiritual battery, the energy of which has been used the previous day. This is extremely important, otherwise the light of our consciousness becomes dim, thoughts become unfocused and decisions are filled with un-clarity and doubt. This energy is available inside and outside. Inside us we have a spiritual centre, at the center of our consciousness, pure spiritual energy. This is what we are. However access to this energy is now blocked…Continue

A person who is reasonably relaxed and sitting inhales and exhales approximately half a liter of air (this is called tidal volume in physiology) at a time. Now if that same person expanded his chest and abdomen to the maximum that is possible and thereby drew more air into the lungs, it would be possible for him to draw in approximately an extra two liters. This is over and above the normal half liter that can be inhaled. This…Continue

There are many different paths of Yoga. The various paths of yoga lead to the same point or source. All the paths of Yoga incorporate the same aim: Physical Health, Mental Peace and Higher Awareness.
The many variations of Yoga can broadly classified into five basic paths:
1-Hatha Yoga=The path of Balancing the Mental, Physical and Subtle (Pranic or bioplasmic) forces of the body. 2-Raja Yoga = the path of Introspection.
3-Bhakti Yoga= the path of Devotion.
