Getting out of Samsara
CHENNAI: Every human birth is an opportunity to strive for salvation and this truth is reinforced emphatically in the lives of saints. It is important that each individual becomes self introspective and tries to understand the purpose of life. We have to get rid of the consequences of our actions if one has to transcend the cycle of Samsara.
Saiva Siddhanta points out that every act (good or bad) of an individual is recorded and the consequences (joy… Continue

This taken from Sivananda excerp on Holi
All great Hindu festivals have religious, social and hygienic elements in them. Holi is no exception. Every season has a festival of its own. Holi is the great spring festival of India. Being an agricultural country, India's two big festivals come during the harvest time when the barns and granaries of our farmers are full and they have reason to enjoy the fruits of their hard labour. The harvest season is a festive season all over the… Continue

This is Eduardo.
It came to me a petition for signatures to save a spiritual ashram. I have already given my signature and now put it into your consideration as the head of this forum-home the decision to run the petition.
I am not related anyway to this. I repeat, it came to me via e-mail. A link to the page is given below.

Tridandisvami Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja
[This is the first publication of the transcription below. Although it is five years old, it is timely. As Srila Narayana Maharaja told the story herein, he was unsuccessfully trying to hold back his tears. In order to wipe his eyes as he was reaching the story’s end, he opened his arms to take hold of his upper sannyasa cloth and slip it under his eyeglasses. He was wearing a very thin… Continue

Show me the way, Lord.
I am always your student.
I am always in love with you.
I am always willing to change myself
to follow the deepest promptings
that you have planted in my heart.
Show me not the answer,
show me the right questions
to ask. Show me what is right
and I will try as best I can
to do it. I will fail, often.
If I ask for something that does not help me,
show me the error, and lead me to that
which helps… Continue

When he was nine years old, Garuvel Nep Zing discovered
that he could disappear. He was sitting in a white gazebo on the family estate.
It was hidden by tall thin evergreens to the rear of the Great House, at the end of a long sloping lawn. Garuvel treasured this spot for its remoteness from the prying eyes of his family and the family’s servants. Little finches nested in the stately spires, and Garuvel watched them land and disappear twittering inside the moist

If you have asked yourself the question
“why am I so crazy”?
the answer is simple.
You are crazy with grief.
Deep down inside,
you are like one attending a funeral,
tearing your clothes,
bewailing your loss.
“But what have I lost, to be so crazy?”
Something infinitely precious,
something you love so ferociously
that even to remember it consciously
would set you to rending your hair,
again and again.
There is a… Continue

Truly its been a revival for me to come to this community and this site and to be in the company of fellow yogis like you. There I have to correct myself because when I compare myself with you all I see the difference. All of you are adepts and teachers of yoga running your own ashrams and studios while the last class of yoga I might have taught at the Sivananda Yoga center in Trivandrum Kerala may have been fifteen years back. Nevertheless in Yoga there is no comparison and the first breath of… Continue

First of all let me say that I am enlightened hehehe. When I say that I mean that all of us are enlightened. Otherwise we wouldn’t be able to communicate would we? There is a light within us that makes it possible for us to be aware, to know, to think, to remember and be active through the body mind and senses. That light or awareness makes it possible for us to sleep, dream, and to wake up from sleep, to a new day with all the memory of the previous days of our life in continuity. That light… Continue

God is all that we can imagine him to be,
And he can be just beyond that imagination.
He can be gentler than the gentlest breeze,
And more fierce than the hurricane.
He is the Lord of creation,
But is also a lady.
He is simpler than the simplest,
But more complex than complicated.
Smaller than the smallest,
Yet larger than the largest.
Closer than the closest,
But further than the farthest.
Friend to a friend,
Father to a… Continue
