Prabhuji Ramakrishnananda Podcast - A source for the Teachings of Vedanta, Yoga, Meditation and Hinduism
Summary: H.H. Avadhuta Sri Ramakrishnananda Babaji Maharaja is a Hindu spiritual master, and founder of the Vimuki Yoga Mission. He lives and teaches at the Vimukti Yoga Ashram located in the Catskill Mountains, NY. When Prabhuji Ramakrishnananda was a child, he had a divine and spontaneous experience that triggered his long spiritual quest for enlightenment. That search took him around the world as he sought guidance and answers from religious leaders and spiritual masters. Thirty years later, the blissful experience returned as a complete realization of the Self. Many years of both theoretical and practical study, together with a direct realization of the Self, have made Prabhuji a genuine authority on each of these various paths of yoga, including: purna yoga, nada yoga, raja yoga, hatha yoga, bhakti yoga, mantra yoga, kundalini yoga, karma yoga, jnana yoga, tantra yoga and kriya yoga.
Every human being has made an image of himself and of others.
Hatha-yoga - Asana - searching your posture in life
"...In order to let the love express through you, you need to come back to innocence. in this process you can reach the love of the jivan-mukti, the enlightened one.... -Love is always for the Self- whenever there is love, whenever love appears, is because of the Self. That is highest love, love in its purity. Its not that bodily love is not love, but it is more covered... less consciousness..."
"Asana is a posture that is steady, firm, and comfortable... the direction of religion is the opposite of what society teaches us... from the school we are accustomed that in order to pass exams we have to remember... to memorize... in religion is the opposite because is the way of forgetfulness... and the first step is the body..."
"Our life is reactions. We don't live in the present..."
We are a religion of seers, not philosophers, but rishis, people who really see.
