Practise The Three Kinds Of Tapas

Practise Ahimsa and Brahmacharya in thought, word and deed. Practise Saucha and Arjava

(straight forwardness). Try to keep up balanced mind. Be cheerful always. Keep up Shuddha

Bhava. Try these three kinds of Tapas (physical, verbal and mental) and control your actions.

Be careful in your speeches. Speak little. Speak sweet loving words. Never utter any word

of harshness that can affect the feelings of others. Try to speak the truth. Thus put a check on the

Annihilate Ajnana

Lead a life of austerity and meditation. Come out of your small narrow egoistic circle and

have a broad vision. Beware of bad company. Even a sober man begins to drink in the company of

drunkards.

Be patient in difficulties, danger, troubles. Stand adamant and overcome obstacles. Have a

burning desire for liberation. Annihilate Ajnana through Satsanga, Sravana, Manana and

Nididhyasana.

Know Him In Essence

Lord Hari manifested in the form of Lord Krishna and Rama for the protection of the good,

the great Lord of all beings.”

Do not be carried away by the turbulent senses and the influence of the Mayaic forces. By

devotion and faith know Him in essence and through His grace attain… Continue

No Faith, No Jnana

The goal of life is God-realisation. Life is faith and illumination. Faith is an important

qualification for an aspirant. No faith, no devotion. No faith, no Jnana.

Bad company, lust, greed, infatuated love for wife, son and property and unwholesome food

are the enemies of faith. Take bland, light, substantial food.

Meditate. Realise Him intuitively this very second and enjoy the Bliss of the Self.

Be Self-Controlled

Spiritual life is not an idle talk. It is actual living in the Atman. It is a transcendental

experience of unalloyed bliss. It is a life of fullness and perfection.

Be self-controlled. Be just. Know the right. Keep your promise. Be noble and impartial. Be

like the ocean in depth of devotion, like the Himavan in firmness.

Cultivate peace in the garden of your heart by removing the weeds of lust, hatred, greed,

selfishness and jealousy. Know and feel always that you are… Continue

Do Kirtan Regularly

Sankirtan is food for the mind and the Soul. Sankirtan is a Divine tonic. Sankirtan is a potent

healing balm for the shattered nerves. Sankirtan is a celestial nectar. Drink the nectar daily by doing

Sankirtan in Brahmamuhurta and night.

The strength and intensity of devotion depends upon the completeness of the self-surrender

and sacrifice. As the vast majority of persons keep certain subtle desires for secret gratifications,

they do not grow in devotion. The two… Continue

Name Is Verily Omnipotent

Name of the Lord is a potent unfailing antidote for those who are bitten by the serpent of

Samsara. It is a nectar (Amrita) that can confer immortality and perennial Peace. Yama is terribly

afraid of those who repeat the names of the Lord. He cannot approach them. Repeat the name of the

Lord always and attain the fearless state.

May the Lord guide you in all your activities. May He enlighten your path enabling you to

achieve the goal of life, viz., Self-realisation,… Continue
