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!
4.80 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!
4.86 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.

Does God Have Favourites? (And Other Heart-to-Heart Talks)

About this Book

India’s saints and sages, from Maharishi Narad to Swami Sivananda, from Sage Vasishta to Sadhu Vaswani, have all emphasized the value of daily satsang as an indispensable aid to spiritual growth. Unfortunately, many of us in the modern age have one common excuse to cite as our inability to attend satsang: lack of time!

If this is your excuse too, we offer you a remedy through this book which is now in your hands; it is the closest you can get to a satsang in print, for it is a compilation of Rev. Dada J.P. Vaswani’s upadeshes, originally delivered in Sindhi or Hindi. These have now been translated into English for your benefit, retaining the spirit of the original discourses and keeping intact, Rev. Dada’s inimitable personal touches and nuances of thought.

God’s presence is felt in the satsang, where disciples come to sit at the feet of their Guru, to imbibe his wisdom and grace. Indeed, God speaks to us through the Guru, piercing the veil of maya which hides Him from our earthly vision. The Guru’s discourse in the satsang are seldom pre-planned or prepared in advance; they are inspired by the sanctity and the pure vibrations emanating from the satsang and the pure vibrations of Divine Power. Each discourse is thus a rare and unique pearl of piety and wisdom, imbued with Divine grace. The theme, the scriptural references the values they depict –all flows spontaneously from the Guru’s lips; as listeners, we are only aware, that this is a river of nectar flowing before us and nothing can prevent us from drinking deeply from this immortal fountain of wisdom.

Come, the amrit dhara is captured in print for you; partake of the divine feast to your heart’s content. In Sadhu Vaswani’s immortal words, “Sukh sagar mein aaye ke math jao re pyasa pyare!” Do not go away thirsty and parched from the ocean of bliss!

Preface

This book brings together, a few of Revered Dada J.P. Vaswani’s inspiring discourses, originally delivered in Sindhi or Hindi. Some of them were delivered at the Sadhu Vaswani Mission, a few of them were ruh-rihans (heart-to-heart talks) given to smaller audiences, while others are public talks in Hindi. These beautiful talks are now published in English for the benefit of many. We wish to share the grace and blessings enjoyed from listening to these beautiful and soul-stirring discourses with one and all.
