No lo sé. Aunque llevo practicando el Yoga poco más de un año, apenas empiezo a estudiar su filosofía.
Lo que si puedo decir es que Yoga significa unión y escuché que una interpretación de la raíz de la palabra religión es re-ligare que significa volver a ligar o volver a unir. Entonces, por su orígen las dos palabras son sinónimos.
Lo que he aprendido en mi práctica de Yoga y en la meditación Zen que practico también… Continue

An instrumental in 4 movements (The Ordinary, Running Out Of Breath, Dweller On The Threshold, Jambudvipa), the composition aims to evoke the progress of an individual getting fed up with their day to day life to the point of taking an extended time off…
It's often believed that if people become spiritual and dispassionate about the outcome of their actions, they will stagnate; there will be no progress. In fact, the opposite is true. Creativity and enthusiasm can spring only when you are well rested; and you cannot rest if you are anxious about the outcome of your actions.
When we perform every action with an eye on the end result, we get lost in the end and don't enjoy the… Continue

Sri Swami Satchidananda's Notes
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE ALLERGIC TO ANYTHING -
If you keep the body healthy, the body can adjust to any weather. You won't have to complain about the outside atmosphere. Many people complain about allergies. They are always saying, "I am allergic to this, allergic to that." Allergy is not something coming from outside; allergy comes from lack of health. If your body is strong enough, you don't have to be allergic to anything.
Sri Swami Satchidananda's Notes
THAT'S WHY HE CAN STOP YOUR ELEPHANT
Once upon a time there lived king who had a nice elephant. The attendant of the elephant used to take it to the river every day for a bath. One day as the attendant was bringing the elephant back to the palace, a little boy came walking up to the elephant. He took its trunk in his hands, saying, "Stop! Look at the way you are walking. The elephant stopped. "Walk gently, carefully," he told the elephant. He let… Continue

The mind settles down to its most silent restful state and so the body which is totally with the mind goes to the restful state as well, a state of rest, deeper than sleep...This self exploratory journey of self transformation through self-observation.....through self consciousness dissolves mental impurities bringing out a balanced Positive and compassionate mind.
John is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, 'If I were any better, I would be twins!' He was a natural motivator.
If an employee was having a bad day, John was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation. Seeing this style really made me curious,… Continue
To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given the chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life.
People around the world have been talking about a movie so powerful that it can change the course of your life. This movie, The Secret, was created by Australian Rhonda Byrne, and she says that if you follow its philosophy, you can create the life you want--whether that means getting out of debt, finding a more fulfilling job or even… Continue

What is purity of heart? A heart full of tranquillity, full of peace. Having a steady mind, a balanced mind, is what you call purity of heart, Being well-balanced between the dualities: the ups and downs, the pleasure and pain, the profit and loss. If the mind is free from turbulence, then the seer can see its own nature. If your heart is pure and steady, you can see God reflected in that steady heart.

The very first created sound is OM. In a way the unmanifested God first manifests as OM. So if you want to communicate with God, who is vibrating in this OM sound, you should be able to receive that vibration by tuning your heart radio to the same frequency. The radio should be tuned to the same frequency as the transmitting station. God is transmitting His energy, His beauty, His love, His grace, everything at this OM frequency. If you want to receive it, where should you tune your radio? To… Continue

My Impressions of Anandamayi Ma
(By Melita Mashmann, German author and long-time devotee of Ma)
It is more than ten years since the day when I met Ma first, and up to now it has been the most important day in my life. I owed it only to my Guru’s grace and not to my own understanding that I recognized the importance at once.
One day, after having been with Ma for about a month, I said to Her: “Ma, I did not come here to love you but to learn to love God better through… Continue
There was a total of 36 cases of yoga-related injury presentations to Victorian Emergency Departments (ED) among children and adults aged 10 years and older identified on the Victorian Emergency Minimum Dataset (VEMD) over the 5-year period January 2002 to December 2006.
Question: How should we pray? There seems to he a contradiction between totally trusting in God's Will and praying for someone or something.
Sri Gurudev: It is the same thing. There is no contradiction at all. But you should understand the purpose of your prayer. You don't go and ask God, "Give me that". If you feel you must ask for something, then say, "Please give me understanding. Give me the constant remembrance that You are handling… Continue
