The test of spiritual advancement is a gradual attainment of freedom from doubts of all kinds and a conviction of having reached a settled understanding in regard to one?s true aim of life. It is this conviction that brings inner strength and power to face all opposition.- Swami Krishnananda

"True Brotherhood and Peace can only exist where there are strong and self-controlled leaders to set an example for the masses. It is of vital importance that leaders have inner vision and inner peace. Not until men have this inner peace can they hope to establish global peace."- Swami Vishnudevananda

Some Siddhars behave like mad men but not all mad men can be called siddhars .I am surprised by the behavior of this Mookupudi Siddhar in SriRamana Ashram and it is good that the Ashram has banned him .

?Repeat God?s name and sing His glories, and keep holy company; and now and then visit God?s devotees and holy men. The mind cannot dwell on God if it is immersed day and night in worldliness, in worldly duties and responsibilities; it is most necessary to go into solitude now and then and think of God. To fix the mind on God is very difficult in the beginning, unless one practises meditation in solitude. When the tree is young, it should be fenced all around; otherwise it may be destroyed by cattle.?

ஒருமுறை சென்னையில் காஞ்சி ஸ்ரீ பரமாச்சார்யார் சிவானந்தலஹரியை விளக்கி பல நாட்கள் உபன்யாசம் செய்து கொண்டிருந்தார் (1930-களில் நடந்தது). அப்போது ஒருநாள், பக்தர்களில் ஒருவர் மகா பெரியவாளை அணுகி, தனக்கு சிவானந்தலஹரியின் நூறு ஸ்லோகங்களையும் தினம் பாராயணம் செய்வது கடினமாக இருப்பதாக ரமண மகரிஷிகளிடம் சொன்னதாகவும் அதற்கு ரமணர் அதில் வெவ்வேறு வரிசையில் வரும் பத்து ஸ்லோகங்களைப் பொறுக்கிக் கொடுத்தார் என்றும் சொன்னார் (ஸ்லோகம் - 6,9,10,11,12,61,65,76,83 & 91). அப்படிச் சொல்லிவிட்டு, அந்த மாதிரி முழுதும் சொல்லாமல் குறுக்கிய சாரத்தை மட்டும் பாராயணம் செய்வது பற்றி பெரியவரின் அபிப்ராயத்தை அறிய விரும்பினார். அப்படி அவர் கேட்டவுடனேயே ?பேஷாகப் பாராயணம் செய்யலாம்; ரமணர் சொன்ன பின் ஏன் இந்தக் கேள்வி?? என்று பதில் கேள்வி கேட்பதன் மூலம், தன் சார்பாகவும் அதை ஆமோதித்தார்.

Generally you perform your daily worship in the accustomed manner. If you feel the desire to practice some extra japa or meditation, it shows that you have caught a glimpse, however faint, and there is then hope that gradually the rhythm of your true nature may emerge. In this condition, the sense of ?I? (aham) still persists, but this I is turned towards the Eternal, intent on union with Him.

Whereas, actions done with a view to fame or distinction are of the ego (ahamkara), and therefore obstacles, impediments.

Whether you practice hathayoga or rajayoga, or any other yoga, it can be harmful only if pure spiritual aspiration is lacking.
When doing asanas and the like, if you have found access to nature?s own rhythm, you will see that everything proceeds smoothly and spontaneously.

"Apply your whole heart even in doing little things such as arranging of your papers, cleaning your room, the sorting of your clothes, etc... Be exact in doing even your little duties. You will derive much joy and happiness.... You are not born to solve the problems of the universe. You are born to find out what you have to do. This span of life is given to you for lofty duties, not for selfishness, not to be spent worthlessly in idle gossiping, eating, drinking and sleeping, but to improve yourself, to cultivate virtues, serve humanity selflessly and to attain God-realisation."
-Swami Sivananda
