“In Joy We Live” Blog Post from Nayswami Dhyana

Read: “Seclusion—The Price of Greatness” by Nayaswami Dhyana

Dhyana1_new_smLiving in a big city like Gurgaon and Delhi at times makes one long for quiet silence away from the packs of barking dogs, sirens in the night, loud wedding music, overcrowded cities and heavy traffic push you to go inside and recharge your spiritual batteries. Due to this maddening noise you want to get lost in the tranquility of God. Seclusion is focused time alone in meditation and practice of the techniques, going into your inner self. Going away from the city, into the country or the mountains to fresh air, abundant forests, clean, flowing streams and rivers. One can imagine why the yogis head for the Himalayas.

Daily Inspiration
July 29th, 2015

When others project disharmony towards you, send them in return, from your heart, rays of kindness and harmony.

The more consciously you send those thoughts out in blessing, the more others will change. In time they, too, will project only harmony.
