Swami Venkatesananda brought out another contribution to the world by his new translation of ‘YOGA SUTRAS”. Having travelled far and wide and acquainted with the present needs and levels of understanding of various groups of people he has done a wonderful job presenting this work. I am sure this will throw more light on Yoga to many who may still think that it is just a set of physical practices. 

The tradition of observing these nine days as Vasanta Navaratri is not common in all parts of India. These nine days are usually devoted to Rama because they culminate in Rama Navami, which is the birth anniversary of Rama.

Take refuge in the Name of the Lord. Sing and chant His Name always. In Kali Yuga singing the Lord’s Name is the easiest, surest and safest way for attaining God- consciousness. May you attain God through Kirtan!

His objective was to expand and clarify the commentaries as well as to include many new ideas.

The An ancient Indian scripture, known as the Chhandogya Upanishad, refers to a similar incident when it describes a group of people who do not know a particular tract of land very well, but wander about and pass over a hidden hoard of gold, time and again, without ever finding it. The Upanishad makes the point that we have a much greater treasure hidden within ourselves, our own divinity, of which we are all too often completely ignorant.
In this amazing book, The Mine Field, Swami Venkatesananda discusses the thirteenth chapter of the Bhagavad Gita. The subject of the chapter is ‘the field’ and ‘the knower of the field’.
