Special Question: Will the Maharshi express an opinion about the future of the world, for we are living in critical times?”

Dear All,

Sri Ramana Maharshi:

“Why should you trouble yourself about the future?” demands the Sage. “You do not even properly know about the present! Take care of the present; the future will then take care of itself.”

“There is One who governs the world, and it is His lookout to look after the world. He who…

Power of Sound By Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

Dear All,

   

In our scriptures, it is said that during the process of creation from the Supreme Brahman, the space ('Akasha') came first and sound is the property of the 'Akasha'. From that came air, and from air came fire, from fire came water and from water, earth.



Sound is an abstraction that is closest to the Supreme Brahman.



We employ different means to worship the Supreme Brahman. We…

Those who seek total liberation from the influence of sin should adopt Chanting the divine name.....

Dear All,



Good Morning to all of you and have divine blessed day ahead....



The practice of other forms of atonement cannot bring total purification. This is shown by the fact that through their observances the mind is not cured of its addiction to evil and is again drawn towards the path of evil.



Therefore, those who seek total liberation from the influence of sin should adopt Chanting the divine names of Lord. The heart of the person will be totally purified… Continue

Are you a spiritual seeker? by Sri.N.Ananthanarayan.

Dear all,

The Destiny of Man - Last Part -By Swami Sivananda

Dear All,



Good morning to all of u and have a divine blessed day ahead …..



Each species of the plants and animals has this evolutionary process upon one level only. Whereas you, you are a citizen of two worlds simultaneously. Having been born into this universe, man sits on the threshold of two universes. The outer universe is this gross material world. But he knows "I have not been here some time ago, and after some time I will not be here. I do not belong here." And all… Continue

The Destiny of Man - Part-3 By Swami Sivananda

Dear All,



The destiny of man as seen by these mystics is to be a similar process of going back to his source and origin. And that source and origin is a supreme state of independence, supreme state of consciousness,

transcending all vexing limitations, infinite, boundless, eternal, beyond time and space. That is the source and origin of each one of you sitting and listening to me. Within this confined,…
