SIGNS OF PROGRESS

Your mind will sometimes shudder when evil thoughts enter it. This is a sign of your spiritual progress. You are growing spiritually. You will be much tormented when you think of your evil actions committed in the past. 'This is also a sign of spiritual upheaval. You will not repeat the same actions now.

Your mind will tremble, your body will quiver whenever the wrong mental impression of some evil action urges you to do the same act through three of habit. Continue your meditation with… Continue

THE MAGIC PILL

Try to identify yourself with the eternal, ever ¬pure Atman that resides in the chambers of your heart. Think and feel always: "I am tile Atman that is ever pure." This one thought will remove all troubles and all fanciful thoughts. The mind will try to delude you. It will lurk like a thief. Start this anti-current of thought.

There is no magic pill more effective than silence and solitude to remove the disease of tossing of the mind.

NEVER COMPLAIN OF ENVIRONMENTS

Environments are not bad but your mind is such. Your mind is not disciplined properly. Wage war with this horrible and terrible mind. Do not complain of unfavourable environments. Complain against your own mind first. Train it first.

If you practice concentration amidst unfavour¬able environments, you will grow strong, you will develop your will-force quickly, you will become a dynamic personality. See good in everything and transmute evil into good. This is real Yoga. This is the real… Continue

WASTE NOT PRECIOUS TIME

In the Gita it is stated: "The Yogi, labouring with assiduity, purified from sin and perfected through manifold births, reacheth the Supreme Goal."

If you can give up idle talk, gossip and curiosity, and if you do not interfere in the affairs of others, you will have ample time to practice intense meditation. If worldly thoughts try to enter the mind during meditation, reject them. Have steady devotion to truth. Be cheerful.

From "Daily Sayings" by Swami Sivananda (1987-1963). More… Continue

IDLENESS IS NOT REST

Real rest can be had during meditation when the mind rests in the Atman. Change of work can give rest. Remaining idle without work and allowing the mind to wonder wildly like a furious elephant, or building castles in the air, cannot bring rest to the mind and soul.

The man who cannot fix his mind in meditation and prayer cannot have knowledge of the Self. The unsteady man cannot practice meditation, He can¬not have intense devotion to knowledge of the Self, or any burning longing for… Continue

THE STATE OF FREEDOM

A desire arises in the mind. It is gratified and another desire arises. In the interval between the two desires there is perfect stillness of mind.

When the mind is fully concentrated on Brahman, it becomes one with Brahman, like camphor that becomes one with the flame, like salt that becomes one with water, like water that becomes one with milk. The mind melts in Brahman. It becomes of the nature of Brahman. This is the state of Kaivalya or freedom. Therefore, know Brahman and be… Continue

FORMULAE FOR MEDITATION

Fire is generated by rubbing two pieces of wood. Even so, the fire of wisdom is generated by intense meditation on the Supreme Self.

In the beginning the mind is disciplined by fixing it on a concrete object or symbol. When it is rendered steady and stable, it can then be fixed on an abstract idea such as, "I am Brahman."

Meditate always on the following formulae: "I am pure Consciousness. I am Satchidananda Brahman. I am the immutable, self-effulgent, immortal Self. I am the silent… Continue
