Gandhi’s prayer for peace

I offer you peace, 

I offer you love,

I offer you friendship,

I see your beauty,

I hear your need,

I feel your feelings,

My wisdom flows from the Highest Source.

I salute that source in you.

Let us work together for unity and love.

(Gandhi’s prayer for peace)

Happy Journey :)

Success tool - Calm mind

  • When we are impatient we throw away our opportunities. ~ Swami Paramananda
  • It is a good idea to keep a mental diary. Before you go to bed each night, sit for a short time and review the day. See what you are becoming. Do you like the trend of your life? If not, Change it. ~ Paramhans Yogananda
  • Never mind failures. Rise with fresh vigour. Everything is conquered by the giant force of will. ~ Paramhans Yogananda
  • We should never indulge into thoughts that disturb our mind, distort our vision or shake our resolution. ~ Swami Paramananda

Power of the seed

You have heard of Shri Ramakrishna's words, haven't you? He used to say, "The breeze of mercy is already blowing, do you only hoist the sail." Can anybody, my boy, thrust realization upon another? One's destiny is in one's own hands — the Guru only makes this much understood. Through the power of the seed itself the tree grows, the air and water are only aids.

VJ Ruby Bhatia shares her philosophy

Ruby Bhatia:

My philosophy of life is the ancient eightfold yoga outlined by Patanjali, as mentioned in the book, Autobiography of a Yogi by Sri Paramhansa Yogananda.

The first two steps yama and niyama, both require observance of ten negative and positive moralities. These are avoidance of injury to others, of untruthfulness, of stealing, of incontinence, of gift receiving (which brings obligations); and purity of body and mind, contentment, self-discipline, study, and devotion to God.

Decision making

way to lightAlways think first of what you are about to do and how it will affect you. To act on impulse is not freedom, for you will be bound by the unpleasant effects of wrong actions. But to do those things your discrimination tells you are good for you is all-freeing. That kind of wisdom-guided action makes for a divine existence.

~ Paramhans Yogananda

Duty and competition

Competition rouses envy, and it kills the kindliness of the heart. To the grumbler all duties are distasteful; nothing will ever satisfy him, and his whole life is doomed to prove a failure. Let us work on, doing as we go whatever happens to be our duty, and being ever ready to put our shoulders to the wheel. Then surely shall we see the Light!

~ Swami Vivekananda
