      We have uploaded three Early Morning Meditation talks. They are:

      The Wonderful News of Non-duality By Sri Swami Chidanandaji:

      Be Like Babes By Sri Swami Atmaswarupanandaji:

      The Best New Year Resolution By Sri Swami Atmaswarupanandaji:

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      DESIRE FOR LIBERATION: The Master cited very apt analogies to a
      disciple indicating the type of aspiration one should possess for
      attaining liberation.

      "Suppose some dust falls into one's eyes, the person will hurry to wash
      the eyes and get rid of the dust. Till the dust is removed he will feel
      great unrest. He will forget everything of this world. His sole concern
      will be the removal of the dust from his eyes.

      "Such should be one's aspiration for the attainment of God-realisation.
      The mind should be exclusively occupied with that one desire of
      attaining God-realisation. He should forget everything else. He should
      feel extremely restless and pine for God-realisation.

      "A further analogy is that of a person under water. Suppose you keep
      the head of a man immersed in water, he will struggle for breath. He
      will desire intensely to get out of the water so that he could breathe.
      Such intense desire for God-realisation is called Mumukshutwa."


      "Atman is self-contained. You can get everything here. Develop virtues.
      Remember the basis and source. Have the ideal always before the mind.
      Realise the ideal. Rise above worldliness. Become a magnanimous soul.
      Wish eagerly and fervently to attain Self-realisation. Have a definite
      purpose and aim. Have faith, interest and perseverance. You are bound
      to succeed." - Swami Sivananda
