The Spiritual Quest E-mail

by Swami Yatiswarananda

One day or the other, in the life of every man must come a time when he too feels the call of the spiritual ideal. When such a call comes, he cannot help but listen to it. Nothing in the world can then give him satisfaction. He can never find peace until he follows the dictates of the higher call.

Everyone wants happiness. Who wants pain and misery?

But how do we attain happiness?

Can anyone attain it by running after the fleeting pleasures of the world and ignoring God, who is the source of all happiness?

God alone is the repository of all peace and blessedness. We should try to look within and find Him seated within our own hearts. This body of ours is the living temple of God.

A True Gift: The Gift of Spirituality E-mail

by Swami Radhanandaji

Some form their religion (dharma) arbitrarily and artificially. They advance complex speculations and imagine that good results are attainable only by their theories (Gita 2:42-44 and 9:20-21). Yet the Truth is but one. True happiness can be found only through right discipline and with proper discrimination.

Spiritual Recognition E-mail

by Swami Radhanandaji

It is quite possible for a person to have conquered his senses even while surrounded by worldly pleasures. Therefore, an external appearance does not always constitute a true reflection of the mind (Gita 3:20).
