Daily Readings from the Works of Swami Venkatesananda

Venkatesa Daily Readings Vol 1 - Harmony

January 12, 2019


    Yoga is neither a set of exercises nor is it a matter of being able to speak as if one knows all about life on earth and elsewhere. It is not discussion on God nor is it disgust for the world. None of these things poses any serious threat or problem to our life. They exist even when we are fast asleep, but the problems do not exist then because the creator of the problems does not exist. The creator is the notion “I am …"

     By its various methods and techniques yoga helps us to realize that we derive energy or life force (prana), not so much from food, drink, exercise or even rest, as from good sleep. When “I” is absent, prana flows freely. When even temporarily suspended we self- forgetfully  love and serve; there is a great surge of energy, prana flows freely.

     Health, happiness, healing, holiness, power, enlightenment and ecstasy are all one and that one is beyond the ‘me’ . When this "me" ceases to be, there is harmony. Such harmony is yogaPrana flows. Love flows. God is.
