Thoughts of Swami Vishnudevananda: The pursuit of happiness

"Health is wealth, peace of mind is happiness, Yoga shows the way." The Mission of Swami Vishnudevananda was to spread the name of his teacher, Swami Sivananda Yoga. It is a collaboration of the Centro de Yoga Sivananda of Madrid.


Swami Vishnudevananda He founded the international centers of Sivananda Yoga in 1957 and established the 'True World Order' institution, which promotes universal peace. Overcome internal and external constraints was the message of their numerous peace missions.

The pursuit of happiness

"I am".

That never changes,

It can never be changed.

Only in 'I am' find peace,

You find joy.

In no other place.

This does not apply only to the Yogis.

The Bible says:

"The Kingdom of heaven is within you."

What does "inside of you"?

What do you see when you open this body?

Blood, bone marrow, kidneys...

That is not the Kingdom of heaven.

This means: look inside this being, that "I".

The search, is the pursuit of happiness.

This is our inherent nature.

What is the nature of the fire? It is the heat, isn't it?

Remove the heat to the fire and there is no more fire.

The fire and the heat are one and the same.

In the same way, the nature of the "self" is the.

It is not a feature of the 'I'.

"I" is the.

Such means "I".

TONanda It is a Sanskrit word which means bliss.

That is why we seek happiness.

We have lost this bliss,

This domestic bliss that we are.

The Kingdom of heaven is in that 'I',

but we don't see the joy,

only to see the happiness that is reflected through the senses, which are finite.

But the infinite joy is within you,

What is "you 're".

This happiness is not something you want to get.

You are such bliss.
