Daily Inspiration
November 22nd, 2014

Your magnetism depends on two things: your strength of will, and your level of awareness.

Never impose your will on anyone. Let your influence be like a golden aura of light, surrounding you wherever you go.

Project it invitingly to others. Leave it to them to accept as much from you, or as little, as they choose.

“In Joy We Live” Blogpost from Nayswami Jaya

Read “Commitment” about why we need commitment to our spiritual path in order to keep moving forward on our quest for God


Many years ago, I was trekking with friends when we found our way blocked by a ravine, perhaps thirty feet wide and equally deep.  The banks were steep and it seemed as if we would have to retrace our path, but luckily, not far downhill, we found a fallen fir tree across the ravine forming a somewhat precarious bridge.  The trunk was smooth but solid, about 30 inches in diameter, so one after the other, we made our way across.

Nayaswami Devi’s article, “The Cup and the Ocean”


Once when Swami Kriyananda was a young monk, he was sitting quietly at the feet of his guru, Paramhansa Yoganandaji. Filled with devotion for his master, Swamiji silently prayed, “Teach me to love you as you love me.”

Later, as Yoganandaji stood up to leave the room, he looked deeply at Swamiji and said in response to his unspoken prayer, “How can the little cup hold the whole ocean?”…(read more of this post and sign up to receive these…)

Moksha Mandir1Dear Ones…

It may seem paradoxical, but there is evidence everywhere these days that our beloved Swami Kriyananda is more actively in our lives now than even before his soul’s liberation a
few months ago. He is clearly without limitation in his ability to guide and help us. (read the rest of this letter…)
