Vegetarian Ideal

Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.

Swami Satchidananda - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Swami Satchidananda - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 My interest in this Swami comes from knowing Dean Ornish is a follower....


Manifestos relating to religious belief are described as Credos. "Easeful, peaceful and useful" was the simple motto of Yogiraj Sri Swami Satchidananda.
Integral Yoga believes:
The goal and the birthright of all individuals is to realize the spiritual unity behind the diversity throughout creation and to live harmoniously as members of "one universal family". This goal is achieved by the maintaining of our natural condition as:
  • a body of optimal health and strength,
  • senses under total control,
  • a mind well disciplined, clear, and calm,
  • an intellect as sharp as a razor,
  • a will as strong and pliable as steel,
  • a heart full of unconditional love and compassion,
  • an ego as pure as crystal, and
  • a life filled with supreme peace, joy and bliss.
Attain this through asanas, pranayama, the chanting of holy names, self-discipline, selfless action, mantra japa, meditation, study, and reflection.
