Roadmaps to joy!



Supreme grace is all-pervading, indwelling and ever-present. It manifests within as right enquiry and right discrimination. When you are in great extremity, suddenly an idea flashes in your heart: “This is what I must do at this moment.” This is grace. Help is nearest at hand. When you think that you are about to fail, Grace is ever at hand!

Solution to the ‘No solution’

When we see that God alone is, surrender, leave everything in His hands. Then the "no solution" situation vanishes, for you have found a solution.

Surrendering everything to God becomes the ultimate best solution. For then you are free from the problem. The problem is His concern.

We shouldn’t deny ourselves our birth right

We have been given the right to divinity by the very fact of our human status. But if we do not claim this birth right, we cannot expect someone else to claim it for us. No one denies it to you. You deny it to yourself.

This New Year

Happy New Year

This New year… Reveal Your Inherent Divinity

Radiant immortal Atman! Beloved children of Light!

My first request to you, is:

Begin the New Year by lifting up your heart, mind, and your entire being to God and asking Him earnestly and sincerely that the New Year may be an ideal year filled with 365 ideal,golden days divinely lived, filled with truthfulness,compassion, kindness, purity, and nobility of thought,word and deed.

May everyday that you live bring some benefit to all life around you! May everyday of this New Year that you live be the source of good and joy to others, and bring happiness to others! May it be helpful to all the living creatures, and even to inanimate and immobile things like trees and plants.Feel your oneness with all humanity. Be a world citizen. May the oneness of all life and the fraternity of mankind be always the guiding sentiment in the living of your life! Be large-hearted. Be forgiving, loving, expressing humaneness, friendliness and not allowing any negativity in your heart.

And when you wake up in the morning, wake up with there solution that "I will make this New Year four times as valuable, beautiful, ideal and useful as the year that has just passed. Let the future be better than the past."

Cast a bird's-eye-view on the previous year-what have been its fine points, minus points and drawbacks. You may make up your mind, correct all the errors, and see that they are not repeated in the New-year.

Make the New Year a better one. The effort should be progress, progress and ascent. The overall law that prevails in all life upon this earth is the law of evolution, ascending from the lower to the higher,still higher until fullness and perfection is reached.You must never forget that the living of human life is a progression upon the path of evolution. Keep this in mind and see that everything that you think or speak,every action that you engage in takes you further and upward upon this path of evolution and perfection. You must utilize the God given intelligence in the highest measure. Human life means an ascent to perfection,because you are made in the likeness of God. And God is all-full, all-perfect. So the potential for that perfection, that Divinity is already there in you.That which is latent should be made dynamically patent.

Divine thou art, let divine be your life. Therefore,be divine hundred per cent in everything that you do,think and feel. Make your life sublime. Never forget your real nature that you are a wave in the Ocean of pure Divine Consciousness, you are a part of eternal Existence.

May God and Gurudev shower their grace upon you all!

It is not religion. It is delusion

Demonstrate what your religion has done to you and what is has made out of you. If your religion has not made you selfless, sympathetic, serviceful and sacrificing - then bundle it up and throw it into the sea. It is not religion. It is delusion. Start anew and begin to become truly religious.

~ Swami Chidananda

Life is time!


Your life is nothing but the time you've got

Your life is nothing but the time you’ve got. A waste of time is destruction of life. Time well and wisely spent is life grandly lived. Life is time!

~Swami Chidananda.
