" In the world take always the position of the giver. Give everything and look for no return. Give love, give help, give service, give any little thing you can, but keep out barter. Make no conditions and none will be imposed on you. Let us give out of our own bounty, just as God gives to us."

 "Every Parent wants their child to be emotionally strong, to have sanskars of being happy, caring, sharing and respectful. The most powerful time to give beautiful sanskars to your child is when the child is in the womb of the mother. Stress, Anger, Fear and Worry in couples has a direct effect on the mind of the child in the womb. Virtue Baby is a programme which explores scientific and spiritual principles of Garbh Sanskar. Please share this invitation with every couple you know who is on this 9-month journey. "

"There is One Centre in your being from Which come vibrations of Mantram; images also are revealed there from together with the Truth underlying them. Who is it that does all this? Reflect! He dwells within you and does everything. He awakens enthusiasm, He inspires without you knowing it. He is the omniscient Being. Why speak of Self-realization in the future? It is here and now only the veil that hides It has to be destroyed."

"Yoga Patta - Symbol depicting power of concentration"

Chapter - 3, Slokam - 42 of Srimad Bhagavad Gita says :

“Senses are superior to the objects,
Mind is superior to the senses,
Intellect is superior to the mind,
Superior to the intellect is the Self ”

One who understands this great secret is in the right path of evolution. Self regulation is the means to become established in this knowledge. One who is established in this knowledge enjoys the inner freedom and strength. For this to happen one has to have a firm grip over the mind. And this can be achieved only through the power of concentration.

Yogapatta – the band that is tied around the knees of Ayyappa Swami is the symbol of concentration. It reminds that one has to keep the mind undisturbed to enjoy the inner freedom, the divinity within.

"A problem becomes a problem only when we know not the solution to the problem. Thus ‘life’ is a problem when we know not how to meet the life’s challenges rising around us. The stimuli coming from the external world, as they touch the objective mind, creates therein a problem, to solve which, it needs the guidance of the rational capacities of the intellect - the subjective mind."

"Do not any more see many philosophies and many religions; they just don't exist for me.
The control of the mind is, therefore, equal to the finding of the relation between the finite and the Infinite. Great persistence, great understanding and capacity to discriminate is here called for. The mind has to be handled in an intelligent manner, but persistently."

"Concentration is holding the mind on to some particular object. An unbroken flow of knowledge in that subject is meditation. Meditation is regular flow of thought with regard to the object of concentration. Meditation follows concentration. Concentration merges in meditation. Meditation opens the doors of the mind to intuitive knowledge and many powers. You can get whatever you want through meditation. During meditation all worldly thoughts are shut out from the mind. Meditation is called Dhyana in Sanskrit and is the seventh step in the Yogic Ladder."
