A devotee asked Swamiji, “What is the essence of your spiritual teaching?” He smiled and replied, "Stilling the mind, liberating it from unnecessary thoughts and depression and being permanently happy.”

Swami Premananda was a spiritual master who dedicated his life to serving others. He was a living example of how to overcome obstacles with a positive mind and his primary concern was always for others. Swamiji’s patience and pure love were infinite. He spent many hours listening to devotees’ problems, helping them to solve them and guiding them towards a life of inner peace and happiness. His life was an inspiration to all who met him.

Special Events - NAVARATRI

navaratri2

In Sanskrit nava means nine and ratri means night (just as we have Shivaratri – the night of Shiva) and so, according to tradition, during this festival consecrated to the Divine Mother, we perform abhishekams to worship her and to ask for her grace and her blessings. In Sanskrit riti means “to return to the source”. By means of ritual, therefore, we will acquire the capacity of returning to our divine origin, of rediscovering the Divine within ourselves. Swamiji generally encourages spiritual aspirants to perform or attend a pooja regularly, if they like, because during ritual the mind and body are fully absorbed in the worship of the Divine. It is a means of learning to control the mind and it also purifies the mind. At the same time, we absorb much spiritual energy and enjoy the physical and mental connection to the sacred divine.

Dear Divine Souls,

Many avatars and siddhas were born in this sacred land called India. When you are living on this blessed earth, try to bring your mind to a good state. You have got a good opportunity to do this. However, when we behave with ego, pride, jealousy, greed, anger and when we don’t show respect to others or we are not welcoming to others it means we are not at a mature level. You can bring your mind to a mature stage by becoming humble. Receive the blessings of the Divine Mother, Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati during this Navaratri and live with peace and happiness, without disease, with strong and steady health, with a pure mind, without a competitive attitude and without ego, jealousy, pride or a critical mind…
