Pre-order Take Your Power Back: hSadhu Stories from the Himalayas is a selection of parables told by Swamiji that teach life lessons. They are narrated in a simple way, in simple words, but the stories convey a big message, and are very captivating.
Shree Maa has been devoted to God from her childhood. Leaving home at an early age, she performed sadhana in Kamakhya, in the regions of the Northeastern State of Assam in India.
She sat most of the time in the silence of deep meditation, speaking very little, and eating practically nothing, only sandal paste mixed with water, basil leaves and occasional juice fed to her by devotees.
Her body weight reduced to little more than sixty pounds. People who saw her in deep communion with God for hours and days at a time, called her the Goddess of the Mountain, the Goddess of the River, or simply Shree Maa, the Respected Holy Mother. After several years, she began to roam throughout India worshiping in temples, forests, fields and homes. And she began to sing. Sometimes she would sing all night, and devotees would gather to be in the presence of this holy woman whose entire life is worship.
Inshe came to America, and now lives a very simple life dedicated to daily worship. Fame and wealth could easily be hers, but she wants nothing to do with them, preferring to own very little, and to offer all to God.
Like Ramprasad, she declines the offers of temples and ashrams, preferring the solitude of her spiritual discipline. She chooses to spend her days in worship, meditation and service, teaching that all the acts of life can be service to God and expressions of devotion. Like Ramprasad, her bhava comes from pure intuitive experience. Her message transcends all boundaries as she builds bridges across continents, cultures and creeds. Swami Satyananda Saraswati is considered to be one of the foremost Vedic scholars and Sanskrit translators in the West.
He is the author of nearly 60 books in nine different languages representing a significant contribution to the understanding of Hinduism and Vedic religious practices. Swamiji comes from the Dashnami lineage of Adi Shankaracharya, and belongs to the Saraswati tribe of renunciates and scholars who are living the life of a teacher and a knower of wisdom, worshiping with both spiritual knowledge and devotion. His Guru, Swami Amritananda Saraswati, initiated him into the Vedic Knowledge, Sanskrit, and the Chandi Path and sacred fire ceremony as his primary system of spiritual discipline in He practiced the recitation of the Chandi Path in the Himalayan snow and in the hot springs of Bakreswar.
Through this rigorous penance, he became impervious to the influences of heat and cold. Through his experiences walking the length and breadth of the Himalayas over 15 years, Swamiji fell in love with Sanskrit and became proficient in numerous languages including Bengali and Hindi.
Wherever he went he would learn the local systems of worship and inspire those around him to participate.
InSwamiji met Shree Maa when he was performing a vow of worship in a small temple in the interior of West Bengal. They toured India, spreading their divine love and inspiration by performing pujas, homas, and sharing their realizations, and teaching their methods of spiritual practice. In they came to America and established the Devi Mandir, where he and Shree Maa shine their beacon of light from Napa, California.
Today, they share all their resources to give every individual an opportunity to access these spiritual teachings.Cosmic History Chronicles Vol. Share Tweet Facebook Facebook.

Pre-order Take Your Power Back: h Twilah posted a discussion Hunab ku 78 cards? Hello is there a proper thread to ask this question?This place is also revered as the mystical land of Shambhala by Tibetans. According to another tradition, the Siddhashrama is located in the Tibetan region, nearby Kailash parvat.
Though any Sadhu, Sanyasi, Yeti, Monk and Yogi might have known 'Siddhashram' by any name or various cults might have used different worship or Sadhana methods according to their beliefs.
The context of this supernatural land has been mentioned in many ancient scriptures along with four Vedas.
The Siddhashram is described as a divine place in spiritual journey. Thus it is also believed that while discharging their divine works in this universe the spiritually empowered Yogis remain in constant touch with Siddhashram and they visit it regularly.
Siddhashram is considered as the base of spiritual consciousness, heart of divinity and the mortification land of great Rishies. Siddhashram is equally scarce to human beings and all the visible and invisible creatures.
Thus, the Siddhashram is assumed as a very scarce divine place. But it will be possible to get the divine power to enter this scarce and sacred place by doing hard works through Sadhana procedure and following Sadhana path.
Siddhashram is a secret and mystical land deep in the Himalayas, where great siddha yogis, sadhus, and sages live. It is referred to in many Indian epics, the Veda, Upanishads and Puranas including the Rigveda, the oldest scripture of human civilization.
Siddhashram is the society for the enlightened people or siddhas. The person, who reaches high level in sadhana can reach the mystical siddhashram with the blessings of the guru, who is the regular of this place. This aashram lies near the Mansarovar lake and the Kailash. Siddha yogis and sanyasis are meditating in this place for thousands of years.
Like many mystical places mentioned in different religions this place can't be seen with naked eyes, it's an experience and only through the path of meditation and spiritual awareness we can experience this place.
Swami Bishuddhananda Paramhansa first talked of this place in public. He was taken there in His childhood by some adept and He did his sadhana in Gyanganj Ashram for long long years. Many in Hinduism believe that Maharsih Vashishtha, Vishwamitra, Kanad, Pulastya, Atri, Mahayogi Gorakhnath, Srimad Shankaracharya, Bheesma, Kripacharya can be seen wandering there in physical form and also one can have the privilege of listening to their sermons. Many Siddha yogi, yoginis, Apsara Angelsaints are found to be meditating in this place.
The beautiful flowers in the garden, trees, birds, siddha-yoga lake, meditating saints and many other things of the place cannot be described in words. Siddhashrama literally, the hermitage of the siddhas is referred to in the RamayanaMahabharata and the Puranas. In Valmiki 's Ramayana it is said that Viswamitra has his hermitage in Siddhashrama and it was the erstwhile hermitage of Vishnuwhen he appeared as the Vamana Avatar.
In the modern era, the knowledge of Siddhashram is first referred by the Pandit Gopinath Kaviraj and later extensively by Dr. Narayan Dutt Shrimali. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

And yet he wrote a wonderful book. As always — paging Herr Kafka! Misery worked for Evelyn Waugh. The Modern Library says he wrote three of the hundred best novels of the 20th century.

On a visit to Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan, I found myself sitting across from a man named Karma Ura, spilling my guts. Maybe it was the fact that he was named Karma, or the thin air, or the way travel melts my defences, but I decided to confess something very personal. Not that long before, seemingly out of the blue, I had experienced some disturbing symptoms: shortness of breath, dizziness, numbness in my hands and feet.
At first, I feared I was having a heart attack, or going crazy. Maybe both. So I went to the doctor, who ran a series of tests and found Even before I could complete my sentence, he knew that my fears were unfounded.
I was not dying, at least not as quickly as I feared. I was having a panic attack. What I wanted to know was: why now — my life was going uncharacteristically well — and what could I do about it? This is what is troubling you. This is a problem. This is the human condition. We have to be ready for the moment we cease to exist. Places, like people, have a way of surprising us, provided we are open to the possibility of surprise and not weighed down with preconceived notions. Bhutan is indeed a special place and Ura, director of the Centre for Bhutan Studiesa special person but that specialness is more nuanced and, frankly, less sunny than the dreamy Shangri-La image we project onto it.
Actually, by suggesting I think about death once a day, Ura was going easy on me. In Bhutanese culture, one is expected to think about death five times a day. That would be remarkable for any nation, but especially for one so closely equated with happiness as Bhutan.DHUNICAST Satsang Interview with Naga Baba Sri Shiv Raj Giri Ji at 2010 Hardwar Kumbh Mela Part 4
Is this secretly a land of darkness and despair? Not necessarily. Some recent research suggests that, by thinking about death so often, the Bhutanese may be on to something. In a studyUniversity of Kentucky psychologists Nathan DeWall and Roy Baumesiter divided several dozen students into two groups.
One group was told to think about a painful visit to the dentist while the other group was instructed to contemplate their own death.
They know that death is a part of life, whether we like it or not, and ignoring this essential truth comes with a heavy psychological cost. Think the unthinkable, the thing that scares you to think about several times a day. No one, not even children, is sheltered from these images, or from ritual dances re-enacting death.
Ritual provides a container for grief, and in Bhutan that container is large and communal. The Bhutanese might appear detached during this time. They are not. They are grieving through ritual. Why such a different attitude toward death? One reason the Bhutanese think about death so often is that it is all around them. For a small nation, it offers many ways to die.
