Say only what you mean.

In your most casual speech be sincere, and you’ll find others listening to you instead of gazing off in furtive search of a clock.

Ananda Centre Highlight: Ananda Port Blair

Ananda Port Blair_sm
Daya and Keshava, Spiritual Directors of Ananda Delhi, visited Ananda Port Blair on Christmas day and blessed them during a light-filled satsang, as they spoke to them about Master, Swami Kriyananda and what Ananda stands for. The small centre overflowed with light, with love and the presence of Christ and the Masters. The group was started a year ago by a Delhi based devotee who was sent to serve in the Andaman Islands.

Not only was the class not good, he added, but the presentation of the material wasn’t good. It was very uncourteous, and made Dylan uncomfortable. Swamiji heard about this and called a meeting. Everyone, except Dylan, was present. In that meeting, supporting each other, being kind to each other, the importance of harmony, and other things of that nature,….(read more of this post…)

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

Nayaswami Devi’s article, “How to Draw God’s Help in Your Life”


A friend of ours in India told us a very interesting and instructive story. Indu is a lawyer, and at the time these events took place, ran a large legal firm that represented some international companies.

One of his clients ran into entanglements, including being unable to transfer funds overseas. As a result, they couldn’t pay their suppliers or manufacture the goods that their customers had already paid for and needed.
