Prayer is not asking; it is a means of keeping contact with God, communing with Him. “Thou art within me. I live within You. O Lord, make me aware of this.” This is the real prayer.

~ Swami Chidananda Saraswati

Anger is a hidden fire. If you add words to the fire, you will find the blaze more difficult to control.

We have to view ourselves in a Universal context and then live life, not look upon ourselves as individuals who have to be at war with the world in our everyday life.

Space and Time

November 10, 2016

Space is the relation of the coexistence of ideas and time is the relation of the succession of ideas. As coexistence and succession themselves are ideas, the world has no existence independent of the mind, working from the subjective side as the thought process of the individual and objectively as the Will of Brahman.

Our culture, our country has as its highest ideal in life paropakara, benefiting others, being useful to others, doing something that is good for others, not only for yourself. Paropakara is the highest ideal. This body has been given only for this purpose. So bring about a change in the orientation of your vision.
