In this discourse, Gurudevi describes the inner knowing “I am” or “aham” in Sanskrit. “I am” is a complete sentence. It is the knowing of your own perfection. While you may try and become perfect on the outside, Gurudevi explains how perfection is found within. She gives you the explanation and the inner experience.
To give without strings. To serve without acknowledgement. This is called seva or selfless service. In her discourse, Gurudevi explores the yoga of seva and asks you to look at your own motivations. Why do you do what you do? When you give without looking for a reward, you are on the divine path of seva, a superhighway to enlightenment.
Uprightness, serenity, compassion, fearlessness — these are a few of the divine virtues that blossom forth when you practice yoga & meditation. In her discourse, Gurudevi Nirmalananda explains how this happens by pointing you towards the source within — your own Self. When you discover this inner source, life just keeps getting better.
Gurudevi describes how love gets mixed up with lust and need. She compares what we think love is to divine love, which is unconditional and unlimited. Where can you find this divine love? You must look inward to the source. Shaktipat, the cosmic inner awakening, opens the way inward so that you can access and live in your Self, the source of love-itself.
