Swamiji’s Message for 2009-12-24

Be of a free mind, enjoy freely in the
World of dreams; to cross the boundary line here,
You need no body’s permission,
Sachchidananda, Lord of true bliss eternal.

From Datta Darpanam

Ye baddhyoga hrdi siddhatattvah te naiva pasyanti jagannatendhah!
Ye baddhamoha hrdi siddhakamah jagat prapasyanti tathapi tendhah!

Those who have realized the Truth in their own hearts through Yoga do not see the world as others see it. They are not blind.  But those deluded ones, who look
at the world for fulfillment of their desires, are the really blind.

Swamiji’s Message for 2009-12-20

If you consider yourself to be humble say (with a whole heart), “Oh, God, I am a sinner. I am a servant to all”. If you feel you are great due to your status of a king or a scholar then chant, “SO HAM” (I am God) without belittling yourself.
