This boy studies in Vidya Mandir Mylapore!! In his experience Vedic chanting improved his performance in school and he attributes it to his Vedic chanting.

"When you pass through a market in a big city, you will not be able to notice small sounds, but when you sit for common meditation with some of your friends in a quiet room in the morning, you will be able to detect even a little sneezing or coughing.

Even so you are not able to find out the evil thoughts when you are engaged in some work or other, but you are able to detect them when you sit for meditation.

Do not be afraid when evil thoughts pass through your mind when you sit for meditation. Do vigorous Japa and meditation. They will pass off soon."

- Swami Sivananda

First of all, the Sadhaka must retire from all his activities which are immoral and unethical.Unless one is well-grown in his moral and ethical life no amount of Japa or Tapa, bell and flower, sandalwood and camphor, temples, churches and mosques can be of any help to him in his spiritual growth.~ Swami Chinmayananda

Dear Sri Ravi

Thanks for the link to audio talks on Amudha MozhigaL . Later year when my brother visited from USA he wanted to give some gift to my mother and we were at Sri Ramkrishna Math Chennai and I told him best gift  is to buy the Tamil Version of Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna - Amudha Mozhigal and he immediately bought it and my mother was thrilled after seeing the same . Now this audio links are a bonus to her reading .I have downloaded few talks and she is happy to listen to the same .

Dear Sri Graham

Perfectly understand your situation . Sometimes things happen beyond our control and we cant do much about it .In the past I used to get very much perturbed by these sort of situations and my mind will keep spinning stories endlessly trying to understand why this happened to me and how unjust it is .Only after reading the books of Bhagavan especially the book "Living by the Words of Bhagavan" that I understood the foolishness of the same . When we loose something that is very dear to ourselves ( like a book , a jewel , a watch , cell phone etc and now these posts ) the mind spins stories endlessly and imagine how much the mind will get perturbed when the most dearest to it i.e the body gets injured , falls sick or facing death . Even now I do get irritated and angry when things do not go my way or when strange things happen in my life but I see to it that I recoil quickly from such a situation .This is an ongoing process for me ( as so is it for everyone ) and I am yet to master it completely   and yesterday I had one more taste of the same . I know for some ( like Sri Anil ,Hari etc ) the loss was too much to bear but I am sure they will understand and get back to posting here . It is perfectly Human to get hurt by what happened yesterday but as followers of Bhagavan we must use this opportunity to not fall in to the mental trap of endless stories and forget the purpose for which we are here .
In the end Everything Happens by the Will of Almighty .
Let us surrender to Bhagavan .

Om Namo Bhagavate Sri Ramanaya

Serve, Love, Give, Purify, Meditate, Realize.--Swami Sivananda

This is the essence of Swami Sivananda's teachings and the essence of all the spiritual books . People directly jump to Meditation without ripening their minds through the first 4 ( Serve ,Love ,Give ,Purify ) and struggle a lot .

Dear all, forget about everything that I have said. For aid that I deleted my posts, I don't want like Sri Ravi to continue this discussion. What happened has happened. Sri Graham did not do that on purpose. It seems that it was God's Will. I see that clearly after my mind settled down. I apologize to Sri Graham and all members here if I have offended them in some way. Even if Sri Graham desires can delete this topic. He has my permission. It has served its purpose. I wish you prosperous sadhana.

That's it .Yesterday being Shivarathri I feel the Divine was giving a shock treatment to all of us to test how far we have progressed in our sadhana . Now that the dust has settled down we can focus on our postings again . But there is a tip we can follow i.e to make back up copies of our postings on  MS-WORD file  in case we need to read it offline and value it very much so that even if accidents like what happened yesterday happened we will not be perturbed much .
All the best in your sadhana .

Om Namo Bhagavata Sri Ramanaya
