Mind

September 6, 2014

The mind is a creation of avidya (ignorance), and it is the effect of avidya. The mind is filled with delusion – this is why it tempts you and makes you go astray. If you can destroy the cause of the mind by getting knowledge of the supreme self, the mind is nowhere – it dwindles into an airy nothing.

Radhakrishna

September 3, 2014

The word ‘Radhakrishna’ is a reputed compound name, and devotees generally run into mystical contemplation and even fly into ecstasies in their moods in an attempt to understand the relationship between Sri Krishna and Radha. But, as is the case with almost everything in the world, this relationship which is deeply spiritual and mystical, is hard for the human mind to understand, because God, and everything that is connected with God, cannot become an object of human understanding.

The human mind is not expected to understand God, and to ‘understand’ Him would be a blasphemy on the part of the human reason. As a straw would try to carry fire on its body, the intellect of man tries to apprehend the divine mysteries in creation. Devotees of Sri Krishna relate a lot about Radha, the Divine Mystery. I can call her only a Divine Mystery and there is no other designation suitable.

Even today, it is a mystery, and it has remained ever a mystery, because God’s relation to the world, His relation to devotees, His relation to human beings, His relation to anything, is a Divine Mystery in itself.

Anger

August 23, 2014

Irritability becomes explosive fury or rage. It bursts suddenly into a violent fit of anger. Nip it in the bud at once. Be cautious and vigilant whenever you find yourself getting irritable. Do not allow it to assume the form of a big wave of anger. At once start repeating the Divine Name vigorously. Pray to God fervently.

Swami Sivananda Saraswati

For each and every individual, life and the outcome of life is a matter of continuous choice. You are what you choose to become. Nothing is forced upon you. Nothing is imposed. There is no external force. You are the source of all force, all power.

Swami Chidananda Saraswati
