Light on the Guru Disciple Relationship

Light on the Guru Disciple Relationship

£10.00

Many people have argued that a guru is not necessary, because the real guru is already within us. This is true, but how many of us can claim to hear, understand or follow his instructions? In fact, most of us even tend to doubt his existence. How many of us can discriminate between the real inner guru and the monkey mind, acting out the dictates of the ego? This inspiring book is written in two parts: the first by Swami Satyasangananda, who accompanied her guru, Swami Satyananda, on his tours as he enlightened his followers on the science of yoga. It contains chapters on: how to recognise a guru, types of gurus, types of disciples, negativity towards the guru, initiation, and many more. The second section contains a selection of satsangs and talks on: linking with the spirit of the guru, surrendering the ego, secret of transmission, every guru is a light, guru is not a policeman, and many more.

Karma Sannyasa

Karma Sannyasa

£10.00

How is it possible to live the life of a householder and yet maintain a balance between external and internal growth? In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna tells Arjuna, there is no harm in action, the danger lies in attachment and dependence on the fruits of the actions performed. If you can understand this concept and implement it in your daily life, then you will gradually experience a higher quality of experience. This is essentially the concept of karma sannyasa; live life fully, participate in all events externally, but internally maintain an attitude of non-doership. Explaining how closely our lives are governed by attachment, desire and ambition, Karma Sannyasa describes methods to transform these patterns and realise a happier outlook through the blossoming of spiritual awareness. The book focuses on family life and relationships, wealth, karma, self-respect and lifestyle, describing the process of realising spirituality through everyday life experiences.
Swami Satyasangananda

Taming the Kundalini

Taming the Kundalini

£7.00

It is asleep. It is silent. It has encoiled itself. Its 'bedroom' is called Muladhara Cakra. This center is triangular in shape. Its aspect is gross. Its element is Prithivi (earth) Tattva. Tamoguna is its covering. It lies encoiling itself. It is called Kundalini. In Sahasrara Cakra it joins with Shiva. The power then manifests itself. It is like a hidden fire which can only be kindled by the force of spiritual power. As the inner mind becomes concentrated and one-pointed, the power begins to awaken itself. As long as the inner mind remains gross or externalized, it sleeps. It can be awakened by soul force or by will. But this is not the only means. It may be regarded as one of the methods. It can be awakened by Hatha Yoga, but neither is that the only method. You can call it one form of scientific method. It can also be awakened by practicing Samyama on the centers and realizing in experience their colour, elements, nature, Guna and the Bija. Nor is this the only method; you may just call it a good method.
Swami Satyananda Saraswati
