Learn to unconfuse your mind and illuminate the darkness of bondage. Learn to unconfuse your mind with the identity that never changes. The nature of realization, the nature of purity is everything of its surroundings reflect in it without making it impure. Yet, we allow anything and everything to reflect in our purity with ever-changing thoughts and emotions as habit patterns, as our identity. The ever-changing, the impure, our false bondage becomes our identity crisis.
I bow to the Truth-bearing guru, who is the bliss of Brahman; who bestows the highest joy; who is infinite, free of the bonds of the 36 tattvas; who is One, the embodiment of Wisdom, Pure, and Eternal; and who exemplifies the great Vedantic proclamations, such as 'That Thou art;' the witness beyond all duality.
Yoga unites everybody in silence and meditation. Yoga is a tradition of discovering the inner serene silence. Yoga is not a system of physical movement. It is a system of silence and stillness from which the movement expresses itself. It is the subtle yoga, not the yoga of the body but the yoga of the inner self.
On behalf of the Sangha our loving appreciation to all to those involved through the Tradition's Budapest Centre, who are working together at this time to provide all the necessary love, support and shelter for displaced families for the past 3 weeks.
Blessings for Lohri and Sankranti
May this festival enlighten your life with the warmth of glory, good health, and happiness. Wishing you all a very happy and prosperous Sankranti with the fire of knowledge enkindled in your heart. Let the Lohri bonfire light up the darkness of selfishness and unbridled desire to bring wisdom, peace, and happiness to your lives. May the fire of ambition you light within fill your life with warmth and brightness of love.
The clockwork of God's universe pulls up the moon from behind Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama (SRSG) as the planets play a chorus song.
Light and Sound fill our Winter night with the melodious chants of meditative japa.
The Names of the Lord in Sun, Moon, and Stars each cherished reminders of those luminous Sage-Saints of yore.
