January / February 2024


Happy New Year with Blessings for a year of Sadhana, inquiry, reflection, contemplation, and deep meditation. Allow all to flow, materialize, manifest from thereof by the Grace of the Lord, God and Guru. 

Be Happy and spread Happiness in 2024. 



29 pointers On Life and Living by 

Swami Anubhavananda for daily reflection and for our personal integration in life

 

1. Life is a waking dream.

2.  Lead your life in an inspired mode.

3.  Don’t make a prestige issue about anything in your life.

4.  In our life, we are either seeking happiness or expressing happiness. Stop seeking happiness. When we express happiness through our thoughts, words and deeds, we are directly connecting 

with the infinite divine.

5.  Every problem in our life is an opportunity to reflect and reach for the truth.

6.  We are squarely responsible for whatever is happening in our life.

7.   Accept life cheerfully and gracefully.

8.   Life is only fulfilled when we know our 

true nature.

9.  Change your understanding of life. Everything is in me.

10.  Life flowing through us without turmoil - This is fulfillment.

11.   Don’t get lost in the non-essentials of life. You will suffer!

12.  Be an illuminator and not be affected.

13.  When learning from every experience becomes our criteria for living, a seeker is born.

14.  By proper learning and observation of our life, we can limit our activities to what we can reasonably do without becoming burdened.

15.   If you are happy Now, you can never be miserable in life. You don’t live yesterday or tomorrow.

16.   When you are happy with silly things, then you are in the present.

17.  If you postpone being happy, even God cannot make you happy.

18.  Don’t try to make anyone happy in this world. Even God hasn’t succeeded.

19.   Be a generic product. Not specific. Fit everywhere.

20.   How you look at the world is your choice.

21.  We live our convictions.

22.  Instead of living as the body, we must live through the body.

23.  Learn to the live in the utter present. No notions. No conditions.

24.  Learn to live independently.

25.  All activities will continue in our lives. No activity is contradictory to abiding in the Self.

26.  Learn to say No and accept a No.

27.   We suffer maximum because of our unnecessary flow of thoughts. Relax.

28.  Technique to break this chain of thoughts is to take deep breaths with the name of the Lord. Hari – breathe in.  Om – breathe out.

29.  Remain in the Now. Don’t bring even a moment of the past into the present or project even a moment into the future.

 

 

All above are invaluable tips towards living a fully integrated life culminating in a life of sadhana 24/7

"Salutations to the Guru whose form is radiant with the crest - jewel of all the Vedas and Upanishads, and who is the Sun that causes the lotus of Vedanta to blossom"


Guru Stotram (verse 6)



DEAR FRIENDS, SEEKERS

We have been gifted the Art and Science of Yoga Sadhana by our beloved Gurudev Swami Yogiraj Nanak Ji Maharaj.

His 96th Jayanthi, His Birthday, is on October 8th.


Swamiji clearly delineated the teachings echoed in all the sacred Scriptures of Sanatana Dharma: the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Geeta and numerous other texts, making it easy for us to grasp their essence if we are true seekers and sincerely committed to living in the Truth.


Swamiji Always reminded us to dwell within our Sacred heart, the abode of the Self, and Not to be hypnotized, dwelling in the emotional heart which is filled with impurities, attachments and illusions. 


Everlasting Joy comes from the ‘No-thing';
Hence we must Always be on the look-out, stay Alert, examine what it is that gives us that itch for a temporary pleasure, a
happiness derived from sense pleasures and indulgences, and recommit, stay ever inspired to change and transform ourselves, To seek the True happiness bubbling within the ever Blissful Self.

Joy can Never be taken from us and is Eternal. Be reminded that No-one and No-thing can give us Joy.
It resides within...

This No-thingness is the Truth
Happiness is manufactured,
Joy is God, the Guru, The Eternal Self.

Friends, time is fleeting... Stay awake and Alert and let us make proper use of this human birth which is very rare and precious. Always introspect this fact and do Not compromise!


We will hold a special Satsang online to celebrate Swamiji’s birthday to stay inspired and committed to His teachings and be worthy to experience His abundant grace 24/7.  

 Please contact us for a Zoom link wherever 

in world you may be.

Swami Yogiraj Nanak Ji Maharaj

10 years and Eternally with Us.


March 1st is the Mahasamadhi Day of our Beloved Guruji Swamiji Yogiraj Nanak whose physical presence has not been with us since 2013 but His Grace , Love, and Divine teachings continue to be our inspiration and Guiding Light. 

It is up to our sincerity and innermost calling to experience His presence in our midst simply because in essence the Guru resides within.


On this occasion, we share a Special Guru Stotram: Hymn in Praise of the Guru along with Maluk Das Invocation


recorded at Yogavani Temple 

श्री गुरुस्तोत्रम् Guru Stotram & Maluk Das Invocation



Jai Shri Satguru Maharaj Ki!


Om Shanti, Shanti, Shantih
