GOD IN ALL

If you really want God, you will find Him. Cultivate faith and devotion.

To realise God you must have patience, perseverance, purity, burning dispassion and yearning.

Whatever you do, see, hear, feel or taste, think that to be God.

Trust in the Lord. Surrender yourself to him.

He will bless you with peace and plenty.

He will bestow upon thee all health, prosperity, and…

"MAYA"

Maya(illusory power of Brahman) tempts the ignorant Jeeva.

She puts a little coating of sensual pleasure over tense pain-giving objects, a little sugar-coating over the ever bitter quinine pills.

Develop dispassion, discrimination and attain freedom and eternal bliss.

Total, unreserved self-surrender to the Lord alone will enable you to cross this maya, and attain his lotus-feet.

SELF KNOWLEDGE

The raft of knowledge of the Self will take you safely over the stormy waves of this great ocean of Samsara. You will not be effected by even the worst kind of adversities and sorrows. Therefore, struggle hard to attain this knowledge. Disseminate this wisdom of the Rishis and bear witness to it in daily life. Who am I? What is Samsara? What is Brahman? What is bondage? What is freedom? What is Maya? What is Avidya? Do Vichar(right enquiry)

Peace

Peace, God, Atma, immortality, Emancipation are synonymous terms.

Righteousness and peace kiss each other.

Peace and unity walk together with clasped hands.

Desirelessness moves hand in hand with peace.

There can be no peace without the love of God.

Realize peace in your own heart, through association with sages, and by meditation.

You can find this peace, only in the stillness, only within your own self.

You certainly cannot find it in…

THE SHIP CELESTIAL

Struggle hard to attain Self-realisation.
Struggle ceaselessly.
Fight like a hero; look not back, but ever go forward.
Diligently perform spiritual Sadhana. With a tranquil heart, meditate.
Give up vain talk.
Within the lotus of thy heart Brahman Dwells.
By the pure in heart is He known.
Easily mayst thou cross the sea of darkness and attain Illumination

Where this egoism in not present, it is all blessedness, all goodness, all glory; and there one can find God.
One who has no egoism has all wisdom.
To the one devoid of ego, the whole world is haven of rest, a realm of peace and a kingdom abounding in all-happiness.

For him there is no more distress: he is purified, exalted and illumined; he sees no sin anywhere, and no evil can come near him.

GLORY OF THE LORD’S NAME

The Name can bring you face to face with God. The Name is the bestower of eternal bliss, perennial joy and everlasting peace. The glory and the greatness of the Lord’s Name cannot be adequately described in words. The Name is filled with countless powers and potencies. The Name is the elixir, ambrosia and divine nectar. The Name is more precious than the wealth of the whole world. The Name is your sole prop, support, refuge, solace, centre, ideal and goal.

Sivananda daily reading - 02.03.2015

In Kali-Yuga(Iron age), as the mind of man are naturally prone to greater distraction, meditation, worship and performance of sacrifice are not possible.
Therefore, loud chanting of the Lord’s Name or Kirtan has been recommended as the principle spiritual practice for God-realisation.
God is the one Doctor for all sickness.
Rely on Him alone.
The names of God are the most potent, unfailing tonic, sure panaceas, well-tried elixirs, sovereign specifies for all.

A good deed is never lost.
It purifies the heart and leads to the divine light and the dawn of divine grace.
He who sows courtesy reaps friendship.
He who plants kindness reaps love.
Goodness is love in action.
It is noble to be good.
Goodness is the greatest virtue.
Every good deed is a grain of seed for immortality or eternal life.
