The Light Of Truth Universal Shrine (LOTUS) is a unique temple dedicated to the Light of all faiths and world peace. Individual altars represent and honor the different world faiths and spiritual paths. LOTUS India is built on the same site where Sri Swami Satchidanandaji was born on 22nd December 1914. This is replica of LOTUS Virginia stands on Sri Gurudev’s 1.09 acres of ancestral land. It stands in silent elegance in the humble village Chettipalayam where nothing much has changed over the years.
If you believe in God, you know that God gives you everything that you need and takes away everything that you don't need.
A yogi is like a surfer who knows how to balance on his board. He welcomes even a big rolling wave because he knows how to enjoy it without getting caught in it.
Keep the mind clean, the body clean, the life well disciplined, the heart dedicated. This is Yoga.
Discipline makes your mind stronger and one-pointed. It should ultimately help you make your mind your slave.
Knowing the meaning of the mantram is not even necessary. The faith behind it is more important.
By repetition of a mantram alone, many hundreds of great saints have experienced Divine Consciousness.
Even when you are physically doing something, your aim can be meditation. Focusing your entire mind on what you are doing is meditation.
Spend a few minutes each day in meditation. These are the most important minutes you can spend. You will be able to send out nice, peaceful vibrations, and these vibrations will go around the globe.
If you have total faith in a Higher Will - a Higher Energy - you will be able to tune in to that and receive all the strength and energy to recharge your system.
To become a good instrument of the Divine, maintain your health - have an easeful body, a peaceful mind and a useful life.
Everything and everybody is looking for happiness. But it is not something that has to be brought in from outside. Happiness is already within Us and is to be experienced.
If you want God to come in, make room.
