“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…)

This Week’s “A Touch of Light” Blogpost from Nayaswamis Jyotish and Devi

devi2_sm“Kriya Yoga saved me, just not in the way I thought it would.” These intriguing words are from a letter we recently received from a friend. With her permission, we’re sharing her experiences with you, because her insights are potentially life changing and something from which everyone can benefit.

But after some years of practicing Kriya, she found herself still struggling…”(read more of this post and sign up to receive these…)

Daily Inspiration
May 25th, 2015

In balance: The natural attraction between the sexes ceases to be compelling, and becomes merely a subject of interest.

Men cease to feel obliterated by women. (Notice, at mixed parties, how often the men present remain silent.) Women, in turn, cease to feel individually bullied by men. Men stop (in a positive way) feeling tenderly protective of women, and women stop depending on men for protection. Both sexes appear to each other as human beings, simply, equal in worth like the two sides of a coin.
