Inner Transformation through truth, tradition, technology, trade…

Sri Sri Ravishankar Bangalore is called the IT city. IT, I say, stands for the city of inner transformation. You need transformation in society, in technology, in our outlook and in our environment.

There are three aspects required for transformation - perception, observation and expression.

There are four Ts that have to be reviewed and renewed again and again - truth, tradition, technology and trade. They have to be renewed again and again. You all know about technology, but I am talking of the experience of reality. Buddha gave one technology - how to control your mind. More...

Live anywhere in peace and happiness

Change yourself and you can then live anywhere in peace and happiness.

Most of the world is like a mental hospital. Some people are sick with jealousy, others with anger, hatred, passion. They are victims of their habits and emotions. But you can make your home a place of peace.

Analyse yourself. All emotions are reflected in the body and mind. Envy and fear cause the face to pale, and love makes it glow. Learn to be calm and you will always be happy.

~ Swami Paramhansa Yogananda

Soham mantra meditation tutorial video

Breath is a bridge between the body and the mind. When trying to meditate it is common to experience tension in the muscles and noisy thoughts in the mind.

The nervous system is the arbiter between the tense body and the noisy mind. One of the best ways to regulate that nervous system, and in turn the body and mind, is through the breath. This has been known by the Yogis for thousands of years, and has also come to be widely known in recent years by the modern medical and psychological community.

Soham mantra has been called the universal mantra because of the fact that its vibration is already a part of the breath, and everybody breathes. Sooooo... is the sound of inhalation, and Hummmm... is the sound of exhalation.

Allow – Deepak Chopra

Real certainty is not certainty about things; it is certainty of your existence, your truth, your Being. When you find your core certainty within, then you no longer look for certainty outside.

Meditation is central to the ability to remain fresh and open to a reality that is not simply a replaying of past experience. Meditation is a powerful practice for cultivating witness consciousness – a state of silent awareness that transcends the mind. With a regular daily meditation practice, the mind spontaneously begins to let go of old conditioning and rigid habits of thinking. More...

How to be a Karmayogi

Do you ask anything from your children in return for what you have given them? It is your duty to work for them, and there the matter ends. In whatever you do for a particular person, a city, or a state, assume the same attitude towards it as you have towards your children — expect nothing in return.

Fruit giving tree, a karmayogi Be a non-attached giver, a Karmayogi

If you can invariably take the position of a giver, in which everything given by you is a free offering to the world, without any thought of return, then will your work bring you no attachment. Attachment comes only where we expect a return.
