Sannyasa

June 2, 2018

Withdraw the mind from the objects and rest in Brahman or the Eternal it is real Sannyasa. Give up names and forms and merge in the nameless Absolute this is real Sannyasa. Rise above the mind and the senses, and realise supra-mental experience this is real Sannyasa.

Selfless Service

May 31, 2018

Selfish Karma leads you to rebirth and rebirth generates new Karma while working off the old. Get rid of Karma if you wish to get rid of the miseries of rebirth. Selfless work will not bind you. It will purify your heart and lead to the descent of the divine light and grace. Understand the Law of Karma and the law of cause and effect. Think rightly. Act nobly. Meditate regularly and attain eternal bliss and immortality.

– Swami Sivananda


Loaf of Bread

May 30, 2018

A Varga or divisional chart is a chart that is generated by the planets based on the degrees that they are located within a sign in the birth chart. This energy is projected [within] the birth chart. Each of the Vargas represent an aspect that is specific in nature. There is a formula that is specific when determining which sign for each divisional chart, a planet will fall into based on the degrees that it is in within the birth chart. When I think of the Vargas or divisional charts, I picture a loaf of bread as being the sign, each piece, when taken out and examined, will show a more detailed picture of that section of a person’s life or loaf so to speak.

Oars

May 30, 2018

A boatman without oars, rudder and sails is carried away helplessly by the winds and currents; but a clever boatman with oars, sails and rudder, ably directs the boat in any direction he likes and reaches the other shore safely. Even so, he who knows the Laws of Nature—the law of thought, the law of Karma, the law of cause and effect—can sail fearlessly in this ocean of Samsara and reach the other shore of fearlessness and immortality quite safely. He will utilise the helping forces to his best advantage and neutralise the opposing forces skilfully, with the help of the knowledge of the Laws. Knowledge is a torch-light. Hence, knowledge is absolutely indispensable. Ignorance is the greatest sin. An ignorant man becomes a victim or a slave of nature.

Thoughts

May 26, 2018

Pure thoughts that are not associated with emotion are not serious obstacles in Yoga. Mere dispassionate thoughts do not disturb you much. Sentiments, emotions and feelings are far greater disturbers in the mental field than mere intellectual thoughts.
