“In Joy We Live” Blog Post from Nayswami Dhyana

Read two inspiring stories: “Choir Sings for Swamiji at Guru Kripa” and “A Lesson from Swamiji in Non-Attachment” by Nayaswami Dhyana


Swamiji was unwell and we had just given a concert of his music at our ashram in Gurgaon that he was to attend. Because Swamiji was so unwell and couldn’t come, the choir went to his home, Guru Kripa to give a mini concert personally for him. Swamiji was carried down to the second floor landing of the stairs of Guru Kripa where he sat as we sang many of his beautiful songs.  By the end of the concert Swamiji was weeping and so was everyone else.  It was a very moving moment when we were able to sing for Swamiji there especially because he was so unwell. We had all felt the presence of God and the blessings of Swamiji’s music. It was as if Divine Mother was in the room blessing all of us and Swamiji through the music.(read more of this post…)

Nayaswami Devi’s article, “Two Bowls of Lemons”


“Is there anything I can do to help?” I asked, as I entered the crowded kitchen at Ananda’s Meditation Retreat. The staff was moving in high gear, busily preparing an elaborate Indian banquet for several hundred guests and residents to be served later that day.

With a grateful smile, the head cook pointed to a twenty-five-pound box of lemons, and said, “All those need to be juiced. Put them in a big bowl, and find a hand juicer [there was no electricity at the Retreat then]. You can go out on the deck and work there.”

It was a beautiful summer’s day, so I settled myself on the deck at a large table under a tree, and began the task at hand. I was happy to help in whatever way I could to prepare for the feast.

After a while, one of the guests saw that I was obviously enjoying myself, and asked, “Can I juice some lemons, too?”….(read more of this post and sign up to receive these…)

Daily Inspiration
April 19th, 2015

Seek upliftment in the company you keep.

Others’ magnetism will affect you, whether for good or evil. Make it a point to mix more with people who radiate goodness. Live, if possible, with spiritually minded people.

Especially, seek out and live in a community whose members are dedicated to living by high principles.
