Stop Complaining – Start Thanking!

Free!

Gratitude, according to Rev. Dada J. P. Vaswani, is “the foundation of a peaceful life, a secure and stable mind; it is also the essence of spirituality.” And Rev. Dada’s logic is, as always , simple and unbeatable : “If you feel grateful for what you have, you will attract many more things to be grateful for. Gratitude is the very basis of the abundant law of attraction.” Stop complaining and start living. Cultivate the fine art of gratitude and fill your life with joy, abundance, peace and prosperity.

 

Dada J.P. Vaswani is the spiritual head of The Sadhu Vaswani Mission and the author hundreds of self-help books on meditation, positive thinking, Hinduism, and on stress management.

Meditation

Free!

Sri Swami Satchidananda gives a remarkably thorough overview of the various techniques of meditation in relatively few pages. The booklet describes the use of mantras, yantras, and specific breathing practices.

Watch your mind. Watch your breath. Become an observer.
Be still and watch what is happening in your body and your mind. You can repeat a mantra or focus on one object at a time. You may then relax and sit calmly and observe the peaceful vibrations that come.
Listen for the silence. See how peaceful you are. The mind is almost sleeping but you are aware of everything. That is what we call meditation.

The Key to Peace

Free!
Rated 4.75 out of 5

By Swami Satchidananda

One of Swami Satchidananda’s greatest, compact works, The Key to Peace shows clearly that peace is what really matters in life and explains how to be in that peace always by not disturbing our real nature. When our supreme inner peace is undisturbed, we are automatically in joy, in love, in light. It inspires us to lead a life of balance, contentment, above likes and dislikes-a life where everything comes to you. Topics include the forbidden fruit, selflessness, use but don’t possess, be always happy, the greatest mantra, just keep giving, real service, joy is your reward, God’s business, love to serve. If you call it a spiritual practice or service or Karma Yoga, it should give you the maximum joy. If it doesn’t, it’s just a selfish act.
In simple words, Yoga means keeping the mind calm and clear to reflect the peace and joy that is within you as your True Self. Whatever helps you maintain that peace can be called Yoga. In other words, any action that will not disturb your mind is a yogic action. A contented mind is alway balanced, always peaceful, above likes and dislikes. Then, everything comes to you.

A Thought for Each Day – The Golden Present

Free!
Rated 4.75 out of 5

By Swami Satchidananda

These daily inspirational readings contain Swami Satchidananda’s teachings on the spiritual life—how to serve others and realize peace, truth, and union with the divine. Culled from twenty-five years of lectures to spiritual seekers in the West and the East, these readings are expressed with the simplicity and authority of one who speaks from his own experience. What is purity of heart? It’s a heart full of tranquility and peace. Having a steady mind, a balanced mind, is what you call purity of heart. You must be well balanced between the dualities: the ups and downs, the pleasure and pain, the profit and loss. If the mind is free from turbulence, then the seer can see its own nature. If your heart is pure and steady, you can see God reflected in that steady heart.
