The Priceless Gift Of Ramayana
“Some sages believe there was an advaitic message. If Valmiki, an ascetic devoted to tapas (austerity) and swadhyaya (study of the vedas) created this epic to help mankind understand human characteristics he must have used the vedic philosophy as the basis. Indian mythology is full of symbolism. One view is that, Sita portrayed as an Ideal Woman reflects how Jiva should pursue its Spiritual Path to realize the Supreme Truth - the Godhead. Ram means, the One who revels in all beings and things, the Atman, the Self of all. Ram is wedded to Sita, the Mind. Ram is born in the bosom where there is Self control and no conflict (Ayodhya). When Ram, the Self, is wedded to Sita, the Mind, there is ex
Bihar School Of Yoga contribution to the world
“Contribution of the Satyananda Tradition to Yoga Sri Swamiji and the Satyananda tradition have made a major contribution to yoga and sannyasa. In order to systematize the practices of yoga it was necessary to create a sequential progression in the structure of yoga, and that is what Sri Swamiji has achieved. To Sri Swamiji goes the credit for the combinations of techniques and presentation of the pawanmuktasana series, parts one (anti-rheumatic), two (anti-gastric) and three (shakti bandhas). He also incorporated components of tantric nyasa into the yogic system in the form of yoga nidra. The sequence in which the practices of pranayama are taught today by the majority of yogic schools was
The Book
In our youth we might have heard firstly about the two most famous epic of India - Ramayana and Mahabharata (very thick books with lots of colourful stories!). Later, perhaps, we have learnt about Vedas, Upanishads, Agamas, and other timeless yoga works passed down from our forefathers...  The most popular and concise Yoga book all yogis study would be, without doubt,  Bhagavad Gita - a most crucial part of Mahabharata where the main hero Arjuna has to face his own demons and act in the most beneficial way.  Mahabharata describes stories around the age when Arjuna lived, with his 4 brothers and 1 wife, having Krishna, his cousin as the best friend and councillor.  This excerpt from the Shata
Gayatri, Hayagreeva Jayanti and Raksha Bandhan
Today we bathe in full auspiciousness of full moon falling on Guruwar/Thursday, which is considered to be the week day of Guru/teacher and invokes sharpened clarity of perception allowing to test new depth and perspectives. This full moon, Shravan Purnima is no ordinary Purnima, most importantly being marked by Gayatri and *Hayagreeva Jayanti*. Also on this day all Hindu people celebrate the sacred brotherly love to their sisters, by preparing special gifts to acknowledge the very important bond in their life. This festival is called *Raksha Bandhan* and most brothers are looking forward a year ahead to spend this day with their sisters. It is no surprise this pure love is celebrated on Shra

3 special temples in the South of Bharat Ma
This year’s Yatra is yet to be processed and put into words. The major difference with the last year, it was planned lightly without much organisational hassle - however with great deal of focus on Sadhana. Once back on a computer, both - Yatra 2019 and 2018 - shall be refreshed and put into articles on ShantiDwara.com as stepping stones for other Yatris.   Given this year’s visit to some of the favourite Ma’s portals of Kalighat, Dakshineshwar Kali Temples (Kolkata), my most favourite (Palani and Ivar Malai) Murugan Mandirs, most impressive Meenakshi Amma Ji embrace (in Madurai), fantastic swirling through Sri Rameshwaram whirlpools of Ram’s precious land marks, this journey has unearthed
Adi Guru Srimat Shankaracharya <3 <3 <3
<3 Renunciation: Shri Paramahamsa Swami Niranjan ji <3  In the early hours of the morning, as birds were leaving 'their warm nests in search of a meal, find the rising sun was colouring the eastern sky with brilliant morning colours, the lone figure of a lady stood under a Coconut tree with tears in her eyes, totally oblivious to the soft breeze murmuring through the leaves. She was gazing at the figure of a boy aged not more than eight years, with shaved head, dressed in ochre-coloured robes and holding a staff and kamandalu in his hands, walking away with firm and determined steps towards a destiny unknown. She watched him until he was swallowed up in the distance by the tall mango,
Sanskrit Chanting and Yoga Nidra course concluded.
This morning we had the last Sunday class for Sanskrit Chanting students. It was a wonderful journey for me personally, as the path has opened up nicely before my eyes. Inspiration overflow is nicely experienced due to intense sadhana (practice) of a prolonged time while working through the numerous chants organising, systematising, editing and packing into packages and courses that can be run in the future in ShantiDwara.  This 8 Sundays course was somewhat introductory giving the basics in Sanskrit pronunciation, getting acquainted with the essential shlokas, hymns and mantras. It was also sweetly spiced up with more esoteric practices of studying Matrikas, associated Vrittis, chakras-mer

Psychospacial Meditation
Q: I have been mediating since 14 now I am 20 initially I felt quite calm any detached but slowly I became  irritated and depressed sort of. Should I stop meditation and yoga? A: The irritation/depression is likely to be frustration with your life. You might like to think about what you want out of your life and go after it systematically. A good place to start is a vision board and new experiences and training. Meditation and yoga just reveals what is there, it doesn't create the difficult emotions, it just allows them time/space to rise up and inform our lives. ——— If one focuses the Mind’s-Eye in a directional spacial orientation: 1. Clarity — occurs as a single-point in front of the two
