Strength of a mother’s love

Goslings

The strength of a mother’s love derives from her unity with the child. In unity there is no possession, as possession is a dual state, containing me and it.

~ BKS Iyengar (Light on Life)

The company of pure souls

Indian flag

You see, in my travels throughout India all these years, I have come across many a great soul, many a heart overflowing with loving kindness, sitting at whose feet I used to feel a mighty current of strength coursing into my heart, and the words I speak to you are only through the force of that current gained by coming in contact with them.

~ Swami Vivekananda (Vivekananda speaks to you)

Self check on the spiritual path – Sri Gyanmata

These three instructions, plus meditation, contain the only rule of life that any disciple needs:

  1. Detachment
  2. Realization of God as the Giver
  3. Unruffled patience

As long as we fail in any one of these three, we still have a serious spiritual defect to overcome.

How to go beyond the thinking mind

"Those who remain on the thinking level do not get the opportunity to see what they are within."

~ Swami Rama

Breathing exercises, pranayam, sudarshan kriya, and total devotion to the divine are tested methods to go beyond the chaos and conflicts of the thinking mind :-)
