As we honour our blessed Gurudeva on  the occasion of his 125th birth anniversary, let us mentally bow to him and take the dust of his feet and resolve to practice his teachings. 

In the words of Swami Anandamoy Giri (senior monastic of YSS/SRF): "The techniques given by Guruji as a part of the Kriya science- the Energization Exercises, Hong-Sau, the Aum technique of meditation, and Kriya Yoga- lead you steadily and surely to the perception of divinity within. You can seek fulfillment in people and the things of the world, but you will not find it there, because you are the soul-an individualized spark of God- and you will not be at rest until you realize that consciousness. Keep on! Every time you meditate, you are advancing toward the sublime goal of Yoga: oneness with the absolute, infinite, eternal bliss of God."

May the blessings of God and our great Gurus continue to flow into our lives as we enter the New Year....
