Dark Room

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]As soon as we see darkness, our eyelids are lowered. Our dream world slowly begins. That is why movie theaters make the hall dark, so we can get lost in the movie. If the lights were on, the movie will not have the same dramatic effect. In our so-called awakened world, we are consumed by the anxieties of the past and the imaginations of the future. We enjoy the dream world the most, as we are experiencing it in the present. We forget everything if the movie is gripping. Indirectly, dark rooms make us forget ourselves. Living with ourselves is the hardest thing to do. We bring along a lot of baggage containing what we think we are. Let’s learn to live in a dark room watching the divine movie within us, and enjoy that it is just a movie for our entertainment.— Satish Daryanani[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”44288″ alignment=”center” lazy_loading=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

    Instruction in Japa by Swami Sivananda

    Make the divine name the sheet-anchor and prop of your life. If you take to the recitation of the divine name, all inauspiciousness will certainly vanish. Om Tat Sat is the most excellent of mantras (mystic formula). One becomes a siddha (perfect being) by japa of this mantra, Om Tat Sat. By repetition of this mantra, Om Tat Sat one becomes the conqueror of death. Practice of the divine names and sincere prayer to the Lord, are the greatest purifiers of the heart and of human nature. After selecting a suitable mantra, stick to it. Frequent change of mantra is not desirable. All mantras mean and signify the… Read more

    We Are All Spiritual Beings by Swami Satchidananda

    Question: I am part of a women’s group. Please advise us of any special chants or prayers or observances that will keep us aware of who we really are. We wish to unfold gracefully in accordance with spiritual teachings. Answer: Well, if you want to become aware of who you really are, don’t even form men’s groups and women’s groups. Men’s groups and women’s groups are formed in terms of a bundle of flesh and bone. We have to rise above the physical level. We have to transcend the physical, and the mental also. The spiritual state is a transcendental state. As long as we get caught in… Read more

  • The Knower by Swami Satchidananda

    [vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]There is an eternal silent entity within us all. And that is what you call the “silent witness” or the “Knower.” The scriptures talk about that as the eternal witness. That is the light in you, or the Self in you, or the Atman. It doesn’t talk or do anything—it just is. And that is what you call “God.” It is due to our own limitations that we say, “God did this, God did that, blessed me, or punished me.” God never blesses or punishes. God just is. Still, we tend to say, “God created the world, God sustains the…
