Ujjain Mahakaleshwar Temple Shivling is Eroding

Shivling worshipped at the famous UjjainMahakaleshwarTemple is one of the Jyotirlingas and is known to be the Shivling that energizes itself. Now the Mahakaleshwar temple administration has raised the issue of the erosion of the Ujjain Mahakaleshwar Shivling worshipped in the main sanctum sanctorum.

District collector and temple committee head BM Sharma told newspersons on Saturday that steps needed to prevent the erosion would follow the report and suggestions of experts expected to visit the temple shortly.…

Strive to always learn new things – Swami Kriyananda

The kind of energy most needed for success in any undertaking is the active desire for success.
The most important thing for man to remember is that he must receive enlightenment; he cannot manufacture it.
Strive to always learn new things.
Happiness is a smile of comfort to the sorrowful.
Consciousness and bliss are one and the same, and are the underlying reality of existence.
Evolution is driven by the impulse in all creatures to avoid threats to their own bliss-potential. What each one perceives of that potential depends on its own level of evolution. To the more primitive creatures it may mean only comfort; to others, food. Nevertheless, according to the degree of awareness expressed in each one, it is bliss they seek. Therefore, the loss of bliss is what they try to avoid. Swami Kriyananda
