Most of us have trouble with the heart. By this, I am not referring to biological or medical heart problems, I am referring to too much emotion, fear, and insecurity. We feel this way because we live in ignorance instead of reality and Truth. The sun (ha) is knowledge and intellect, and the moon (tha) is the mind and the heart. Hatha therefore means living with knowledge and disciplining the mind. Thus, the true spirit and purpose of the practices of Hatha Yoga is to bring about real change in our life as well as a healthy relationship with all of creation and the Creator.

Go-Navaratri message from Shri Guruji 🙏🏼🙏🏼

Message from Shri Guruji

Go-Navaratri

Loving and divine souls,

Let the choicest blessings of the Divine Mother and the masters be upon all of you. I take this opportunity to pray for you, and I send my best wishes on the occasion of Go Navaratri, which is celebrated this year for nine days starting on 26 October.

Earlier I did not know much about this celebration. We are more familiar with the two prominent Navaratris. I learned about Go Navaratri in 2012 during my first long period of silence and seclusion. I studied its significance since that time; I have observed it, and slowly many are understanding and practicing it.

What is ratri? The ordinary meaning is “night,” but its real meaning is “knowledge.” To live in knowledge, and to practice and apply it, is ratri. Nava means “nine” as well as “new.” Ultimately, navaratra or navaratri is to live in new knowledge and understanding. In reality, however, no knowledge is new; instead, knowledge is revealed; it has always been there; it is a revelation. Knowledge is divine.

Then what is go? The word go in Sanskrit is derived from the root verb gam, and it means “to go,” “to move.” and “to proceed.” The word go has many meanings; a few are kine, cattle, including cows, bulls, and calves, oxen, earth, heaven, water, cow products, Divine Mother Gayatri, Divine Mother Saraswati, the sun, the moon, the stars, the sky (space), rays of light, especially sunlight, words (speech), the sense organs, and the mother, and so on.

Thus, the implied meaning of go can be “the opportunity to live, to protect, to progress.” We should protect the earth, preserve water and the environment, and we should progress and proceed.

Why do we ascribe so much importance to the mother cow?

She represents all living beings and the entire creation. She provides the greatest contribution to the entire creation. Her protection symbolizes the entire creation.

We should not be dogmatic; we should be practical and divine.

I am praying to the Divine Mother to give us strength, peace, and progress in our individual and collective endeavors.

With Love,
Prajnanananda

There are many yogis in India who adapt their consumption patterns to their breath. When their breath occurs easily through their right nostril, they eat solid food, but when their breath flows fluidly on the left side, they drink. Under normal conditions of physical and mental health, breathing naturally changes from one nostril to the other at regular intervals, but several techniques exist which can be used to bring about alterations to its flow. Ultimately, we can use this knowledge of hatha to properly and effectively guide the flow of our breath in order to create union between the sun and the moon and have equal pressure of breath in both nostrils to deepen our meditation practice.

In the body, the ida and pingala pranic channels that pass through the left and the right nostrils respectively are related to the moon and the sun. Ha breathing occurs through the right nostril and is known as the solar breath. When it happens, we feel quite active and digestion as well as circulation are improved. On the other hand, tha breathing occurs through the left nostril and is known as lunar breath. When it happens, we might feel a little lazy, and our digestion and circulation might also be weak.

Hatha can also mean "union," particularly the union of:
1. prakriti and purusha
2. the sun and the moon
3. prana and apana
4. Shiva and Shakti
5. the supreme spirit and the individual soul

There is a beautiful verse in Sanskrit in which the yogis speak about Hatha Yoga, referring to it as the friendship or the figurative union between the sun and the moon: "Ha is known as the sun and tha is the moon. The union of the sun and the moon is Hatha Yoga."

Understanding is the vision of your inner being, the sight of your soul, the telescope of your heart. Understanding is a balance of calm intelligence and purity of heart. Emotion is not love, emotion is distorted feeling that will lead you to do the wrong thing. And understanding that is guided solely by the intellect is cold blooded, it too will teach you to do wrong. There are people you can’t even talk to unless you rouse their emotion and others you cannot move except by reason. Men sometimes become intellectually ossified and women occasionally become emotionally unreasonable. You must have balanced understanding. If your understanding is governed by both heart and head, then you have clear vision to see yourself and others. You will also be able to know and assess what others are thinking of you.

CHANGE IS POSSIBLE
One lesson we must learn in life is that in order to really change, grow, and progress, we have to be ready and able to give up some things and accept others at any time. But because our old habits, preferences, and bonds of association are strong, accepting change is not always easy. We are attached to people, places, situations, food, clothing, culture, language, and even to our living space and its contents. We must remember that any emotional or obsessive attachment is an impediment to human development.

Message from Paramahamsa Prajnananandaji

Vijaya Dashami : The Day of Victory

Loving and divine souls,

Let the choicest blessings of God and the masters be upon all of you. I take this opportunity to pray for you, and I send my best wishes on the occasion of Vijay Dashami, the Day of Victory. It is the last day of the Nine Days Worship of the Divine Mother falling this year on October 5.

Worshipping the Divine Mother is the way to be and become Her worthy child and help make others worthy.

What does it mean?

We all have asuric (demonic) qualities hiding within us. We often nourish them out of sheer ignorance. Do you know what they are? Anger, ego, pride, jealousy, wrong understanding, misunderstanding, falsehood, a showy nature, and so on. In the Bhagavad Gita the Lord described this in one complete chapter, the sixteenth. Shri Gurudev said that we are conscious devils and educated fools. We know our own weaknesses; however, we do not strive to eliminate them.

If we do not destroy our bad, non-divine, and unspiritual qualities, if we do not cultivate virtues, we cannot be spiritual.

What should we do?

We should be awake and alert every moment. We should watch our thoughts, words, and actions. We should be peaceful and prayerful. We should observe every word we say. Divine Mother is constantly watching us, but we are constantly ignoring her.

Daily exercise keeps the body healthy. Daily prayer keeps the mind peaceful. Daily meditation produces all-round development. Daily study clarifies our understanding. Walking daily maintains healthy blood circulation and digestion.

We must be punctual and sincere in our daily practices. We should observe our breath constantly.

Time is passing. We should use every moment.

An ounce of practice is better than tons of theories. Is it not so?

On this special day I am praying for all of you and the entire creation — for peace and love everywhere.

With Love,
Prajnanananda

Have a fixed goal. The goal is love, peace and joy. Whenever you encounter problems on the way to achieving that goal, deal with them with patience and forbearance. Think of yourself as a monk living in the family. You have to give joy and peace to others in the family. Remember unhappiness and depression is contagious in a family. Each person vents out their frustration on the others. If you are joyful and strong, you can make others happy. Have a life of understanding, prepare and serve food to the family as though you are cooking for and serving God. Food cooked with agitation will carry those vibrations and affects the ones who eat it.

WHAT IS DETACH AND ATTACH?
When a baby is in its mother's womb, it is attached to her by the umbilical cord. When born, its cord is cut, but new types of attachment to its mother and other family members are created. A newborn is also united with its mother when it breastfeeds, but as it is grows, the baby becomes less and less dependent on milk and eventually wants to eat other solid foods.

We should always be grateful to God, and pray, "O God, when I look around, I see there are many people whose bodies prevent them from walking freely or even moving. I am thankful for my body. Although it may have some problems, it still works." Next comes friendship with the mind. The mind is a gift from God and has been our enduring companion for ages. It is certainly restless and has many turbulent thoughts, sometimes becoming disturbed and uncooperative. But as we have seen, good friends take care of each other, So we should guide our mind in the best way possible.

A Message from Guruji on the Foundation Day of Temple of Compassion

Loving and divine souls,
Let the choicest blessings of God and the masters be upon all of you. I take this opportunity to pray for you, and I send my best wishes on the occasion of the sixth anniversary of our Temple of Compassion in Texas. We will celebrate on September 25.

Sympathy, sorrow, and concern for others’ suffering is compassion. In addition to our spiritual pursuits compassion, pity, kindness, tenderness, and an eager restlessness to help others with love and without expectation is needed in daily life.

My loving ones, time is passing fast. Be careful. I am writing a few questions to you. Silently answer them to yourselves.

How is our individual and collective effort for our growth and progress?
Is it enough, do you think?
Do you love without expectation?
Are you kind and compassionate towards others?
Are you loving and forgiving for all?

Be sincere in your self-effort and self-transformation. Wasting a minute will bring future misery. Use every moment diligently.

I am praying for you all and for your spiritual progress. What more can I say?
With love,
Prajnanananda

Kriya Yoga is the beautiful technique through which people can always do their work - kri- while remaining conscious of the power of the indwelling self- ya. Lahiri Mahasaya specifically taught this technique to the householders in order to benefit the family, since it encourages positive bonds between family members. In every moment the marvelous power of God is active within you and experiencing this makes life more vibrant and lively. Without Him, you have nothing. If you love Him in your daily life, you will have no bo***ge. Your wife is not your bo***ge but your liberation. In your wife, you have your liberation while your wife has her liberation in you. So, knowing that body and soul are the same in both husband and wife, and constant awareness of the power of the indwelling Self brings happiness to life.

Melt The Words Of Your Affirmation Into Intelligent Flames Of Intuitive Perception

Repair your mind microphone by the skillful mechanics of meditation and then broadcast your loving demands claiming your birthright of opulence, health and knowledge through your calm mind - microphone. First, loudly, then softly, and finally just mentally affirm: "Father, Thou and l are one," until you feel oneness, not only in your conscious intelligence or subconscious imagination, but in intuitive conviction of your super conscious mind. Melt the words of the affirmation into intelligent flames of intuitive perception. Then pour those flaming, soulful affirmations into the mold of your calm, restful, firm faith. There your crude words will turn into a sparkling garland of gold-fit offering to lay at the feet of Cosmic Deity.

HERITAGE OF FRIENDSHIP
In friendship, we inherit the qualities or the nature of our friend. Suppose we are good friends with somebody who is very powerful. We love each other, and there is no formality between us; in fact, we can go and talk to him without an appointment or a special invitation. In such case, do you know what will happen to us? We, too will become powerful. In the same way, cultivating a friendship with good people will also make us good people.

FRIENDSHIP WITH WHOM?
Yoga is a life of friendship. Where there is friendship, there is love and thus no fear --- these are two sides of the same coin. In my own childhood I had a little fear of my father, as he was a bit strict. However, as we both grew older we became good friends. Friendship does not mean that disrespect is permissible. Never! Instead of being bossy, there can be nice, friendly love and a cordial relationship in the family, which naturally thrives on proper understanding.
