How different religions help us

Different religions are like different medicines for different diseases of people.

Every religion has some point of Truth in it.

But there cannot be a universally prescribed religious attitude for the whole of mankind, indiscriminately, in the same way as a common medicine cannot be prescribed for every kind of illness of everyone. More...

Guide map to meditation – Swami Rama

You really do not need to know many things, but you definitely need to practice what you know.

—The Art of Joyful Living, pp. 47

“The point is that you don’t need much external information;
you already have true knowledge within.
You need to learn how to apply the knowledge that you have.
You are taught: “Be good, be nice, be gentle, be loving.”
You have all been taught that, but you should learn
to practice, understand, and to apply that knowledge to yourself.
You need to understand how you function,
and the process that results in your actions.” More...

Ishq tere ne ghar-baar chhudaaya, mar gaye ham hai rabba

Ishq tere ne hame yu tarpaaya, mar gaye hai rabba

When God touches us…

“When God touches us, we cease to be human beings and we do not think as intellects or minds at that time. And it is impossible to describe in language what would be that state when we are magnetised by the glory of God. We melt away into nothing, we cease to be, as if we are possessed by a supernal beatitude.”

- The Philosophy of the Bhagavadgita

Saleem singing Shabad – Man digda…

Lyrics: Master Saleem singing Shabad

Man tikda tikda tik jaana har har da simran karaya kar

Kade Guru Ravidas di baani da koi shabad te bai ke padhya kar

Amrit vele mandar de vich mattha tekan jaaya kar

Satgur de charna vich bai ke bhulla vi bakhshaaya kar

Tu hans e mansarovar da, na chhapparaa de vich taraya kar More...

Hatha Yoga Pradipika ch 3. About Mudras

1. As the chief of the snakes is the support of the earth with all the mountains and forests on it, so all the Tantras (Yoga practices) rest on the Kundalini, the Vertebral column.

2. When the sleeping Kundalini awakens by favor of a guru, then all the lotuses (in the six chakras or centers) and all the knots are pierced through.

3. Susumna (Sunya Padavi) becomes a main road for the passage of Prana, and the mind then becomes free from all connections (with its objects of enjoyments) and Death is then evaded.

4. Susumna, Sunya, Padavi, Brahma Randhra, Maha Patha, Sambhavi, Madhya Marga, are names of one and the same thing.

5. In order, therefore, to awaken this goddess, who is sleeping at the entrance of Brahma Dwara (the great door), mudras should be practiced well.


6. Maha Mudra, Maha Bandha, Maha Vedha, Khechari, Uddiyana Bandha, Mula Bandha, Jalandhara Bandha. More...
