There is no way to avoid jealousy unless we start appreciating vibhūti of Īśvara in others, where ever we see worthiness. The more we see it all as Bhavagad-vibhūti the more are the chances to not feel jealous. Swāmi Dayānanda Sarasvatī

All should know the maxim:"A contented mind is a continual feast." The mind is always restless on account of greed. Greed is a kind of internal fire that consumes a man slowly. Contentment is a powerful antidote for the poison of greed. (Swami Sivananda)

A farmer desirous of raising crop must remove all weeds from his field. All varieties of weeds adversely affect the crop. Hence weeding is an essential pre-condition to get a good yield. Similarly, a spiritual aspirant eager to realise bliss (Atmananda), must remove from one's heart the various manifestations of rajo and tamo gunas (qualities of passion and dullness) in the form of malice, desire, greed, anger, hatred and jealousy. These six types of enemies of man are the children of rajo and tamo gunas. None can experience the joy and bliss of the soul as long as these weeds are present. The entire world is a manifestation of the three gunas. Of these three, rajo and tamo gunas are the source of all trouble, sorrow, grief and problems. The six attributes of tamo guna are sleep, drowsiness, fear, anger, laziness and inertia. Hence Lord Krishna asked Arjuna to remove the rajo and tamo gunas from his heart.

"Guru Mahima" on the occasion of auspicious Guru Purnima (July 27, 2018)




" Worship the Guru with the flowers of faith and devotion. Satsanga with the Guru is the first pillar in the temple of Self-realisation. Grace of God takes the form of Guru. To see the Guru is to see God. Blind is the man who has not seen the divine Master. There is but one religion, the religion of devotion and love to Guru."



"The Sadguru is Brahman Himself. He is an ocean of bliss, knowledge, and mercy. He is the captain of your soul. He is the fountain of joy. He removes all your troubles, sorrows, and obstacles. He shows you the right divine path."




"Guru is God. A word from him is a word from God. He need not-teach anything. Even his presence or company is elevating, inspiring, and stirring, His very company is self-illumination. Living in his company is spiritual education."




"Everyone who longs to transcend misery and obtain joy and happiness in life should sincerely practise Guru-Bhakti Yoga. True lasting happiness can be had by taking recourse to Guru Seva Yoga. Guru-Bhakti Yoga confers immortality, eternal bliss, freedom, perfection, perennial joy and everlasting peace."





- Swami Sivananda
