"If you want to be a yogi, you must be free, and place yourself in circumstances where you are alone and free from all anxiety. One who desires a comfortable and nice life and at the same time wants to realize the Self is like the fool who, wanting to cross the river, caught hold of a crocodile, mistaking it for a log of wood."

"Difference between Knowledge and Wisdom ( Jnanam and Vijnanam)" :

We live in a world rife with information. Information without authority which we carry is "knowledge". But that which is authenticated by the scriptures is wisdom " Vijnanam" . People who carry information or disseminate it without real wisdom are pitied by the wise. Bhagavad Gita advises you that true knowledge comes from Guru. Anything around you, including your life experiences that teach you, should be considered a Guru. Bhagavatham speaks of 24 gurus. We have a golden opportunity to study Katopanishad that motivated Swami Vivekananda to spread unquestionable wisdom to the world. Katopanishad cautions you against our own reluctance to change which would degrade us and finally cause rejection. Knowledge is a burden but wisdom is strength. Here to walk the path of wisdom let us learn so we can flow like Ganga in grace and happiness.........Vidwan Sarvathra poojanthe"....

"Learn to walk forward. To climb up we must at each step leave behind the lower steps of the stair-case. You will have to shed the childishness to gain the glory of *youth; again this is to be renounced to gain the reverence of age! Where is the glory for a youth who is yet childish? Can there be respect and salutations to an old crone who still looks out for an admirer!! Renunciation is the only way to *Perfection. Even a little renunciation is rewarded by immense blessings. *Renounce!!

"Yoga is a process of rejoicing. It is not a suffering. It is a movement through happiness. From one state of joy, we move to another state of joy. Every adversity should stimulate more and more strength in us, enough to be able to overcome onslaughts of such types again. Every fall should propel us to a higher aspiration, a longing which should never be dampened, threatened or vanquished at any time."

"Countless may the books you have read; of what avail are they? Many may be your charitable acts, building of rest houses; of what avail are they? Far are you from God, if there be no faith and devotion in your heart. Be firm in faith and strong in determination. Faith is simply prayer. Pray and wait. Wait and watch. Watch and pray. Application of faith and perseverance make the impossible, possible."

" 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. "
