My Guru
Only His love touches me
At my deepest core
Only His glance
Fills me with bliss
His wise words
Reach through the bustling thoughts of my mind
To touch my soul

My Guru's face,
Shaped by lifetimes of Divine love
Melting my heart

Nityananda (Timothy)

Restorative Yoga Teacher Training at The Expanding Light
Inspiration from Swami Kriyananda

"The thing is, the demon of delusion is already well settled in the mind. That is why guru's help is so necessary. He empowers the mind to banish its demons. Therefore it says also in the Bible, 'As many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God."

Prenatal Yoga
by Melody Hansen
If you have some concerns within your body and are open to regaining your healthy self.  Give the fruit and vegetable  9 day cleanse  by Yogananda a try. Tiredness and toxins farewell!  Be radiantly healthy in 2015.
Inspiration from Yogananda 
Thou light of my life — thou camest to spread wisdom's glow over the path of my soul. Centuries of darkness dissolved before the shafts of thy luminous help. As a naughty baby I cried for my Mother Divine, and She came to me as my Guru, Swami Sri Yukteswar. At that meeting, O my Guru, a spark flew from thee, and the faggots of my God-craving, gathered through incarnations, smouldered and blazed into bliss.
