Thoughts for the Day 13 th 2009

Never rejoice when you are praised or get dejected when you are blamed; be a spiritual lion unaffected by both. Be cheerful and smiling under all circumstances. Depression, doubt and conceit are harmful to spiritual aspirants. But when one's devotion is well established, even if these appear, they can be easily discarded.

Thoughts for the Day 11th Mar 2009

The real criterion of moral conduct is harmony between one's thoughts, words and deeds. Morality consists in acting up to the rules of right conduct prescribed by society at a particular time and place for an individual or group. Of all human values, three are most important. The foremost is love of God. Where there is love, there is sacrifice. There arises purity of heart. There should be a fusion of love, sacrifice and purity. They are not mere human qualities. They constitute vital organs of… Continue

Thoughts for the day 5th Mar 2009

Only trees grown in fertile soil can yield good fruits. Those which are grown in saline soil will bear only poor quality of fruits. So also, only in the hearts which are pure and unsullied can such holy feelings and virtues like truth, compassion, forbearance, selflessness grow and shine. Like a farmer who toils to cultivate his field, a Bhakta (devotee) must put in efforts to cultivate the Name of the Lord in his heart in order to reap the harvest - the Lord Himself.

The Ten Commandments by Paramacharya Maha Swamigal Jagadguru Chandrasekarendra Saraswathi

1. One of our duties as human beings is to avail ourselves of every opportunity to do good to others. The poor can serve others by their loyal work to the country and the rich by their wealth to help the poor. Those who are influential can use their influence to better the condition of the lowly. That way we can keep alive in our hearts a sense of social service

2. Man by himself cannot create even a blade of grass. We will be guilty of gross ingratitude if we do not offer first to God… Continue

Hymns and Prayers (cont'd)

The Place of Hymns and Prayers in Worship





Sound and thought are inseparably connected, the former being an expression or vehicle of the latter. The spiritual aspirant takes the help of the sound with a view to awaken the holy thought in his mind. On rising to the mental plane he may do away with the sound symbol altogether. And if he is able to ascend to the heights of realization and lose himself in divine communion, he dispenses with the mental worship even.But until the… Continue

Hymns and Prayers

The Use of Hymns and Prayers



Of the threefold forms of worship-physical, verbal and mental, that is, external adoration, invocation by praises and prayers , and meditation- the first, consisting of rituals and ceremonials of the past, has almost fallen out of use in the life of the individual, and this is greatly due to the stress of activity and lack of leisure and other conveniences in modern life. Noticing the tendency of the age, the authors of the Puranas- the popular scriptures… Continue
