Dhammo mangalmukkittham
Ahimsa sanjamo tavo
Deva vi tam namamsanti
Jassa dhamme saya mano

Religion is the supreme auspicious. Non-violence, self restraint, and penance are its characteristics. Even the Gods bow down before the one who always remains absorbed in religion.





From Acharya Tulsi

Atma soti, jagte
Indriya vishay vikar
Atma jab jab jagati,
Supta vishay sanskar

When the self goes into trance, all the sensual pleasures remain awakened and when the self is awakened the sensual pleasures go deep in slumber.

From Acharya Mahaprajna


Relativity is Everything

If our consciousness is able to tear away from the limits of time and space, then there would be no past, no future, it would all be the present and the present alone. Only the consciousness which becomes infinite, remains. Let us not get stuck with definitions of infinite. So much is clear that to the enlightened there is no past or future. They can see each event, whether it belonged to past or is yet to happen in the future, with tremendous clarity. They can see it happening. To them there is only today, only the present. But of course, it is worth reminding oneself that when there is no past or future, there is no present either. These three words lose all meaning. All that remains is the event, that which is. It does not disappear even in infinite time. Is this possible with out relativity? Anything bound by time and space cannot be independent. Time and space are connected to all our events.

Excerpts from "ANEKANTA, THE THIRD EYE" By Acharya Mahaprajna

Chakra Cleansing & Healing Workshop

On November 5th, JVBNA hosted a Chakra Cleansing and Healing workshop led by renowned yogi, Swami Maheshananda Saraswati at the JVBNA CPPM. Swamiji conducted the Nov 5 workshop with focus on the chakra system and its healing properties. He explained how this system can benefit in modern times that are overburdened with responsibilities and stress. He further explained that the system helps us connect with our higher consciousness. The attendees went through practical sessions including yogic exercise and pranayam to energize and open the chakras, yognidra and mantra meditation to channelize the energy of chakras.

The audience enjoyed the workshop tremendously. Swamiji's articulate and engaging teaching style coupled with his remarkable ability to explain the essence of Yogic Philosophy in a lucid and down-to-earth manner created an effective learning experience for all. Introductions were performed by Madhumita Sacheti, and Ramesh Parmar delivered the Vote of Thanks.
