  1. Gayatri Mantra Ringtone

    Ringtone of the Gayatri Mantra for mobile phones.
    om bhur bhuvah svah tat savitur varenyam bhargo devasya dhimahi dhiyo yo nah prachodayat.
    The Gayatri Mantra is a highly revered mantra, based on a Vedic Sanskrit verse from a hymn of the Rigveda (3.62.10), attributed to the rishi (sage) Vishwamitra. The mantra is named for its vedic gayatri meter. As the verse can be interpreted to invoke the deva Savitri, it is often called Savitri. Its recitation is traditionally preceded by "om" and the formula bhur bhuvah svah, known as the mahavyahriti ("great utterance").
    The Gayatri Mantra is repeated and cited very widely in vedic literature, and praised in several well-known classical Hindu texts such as Manusmriti, Harivamsa, and the Bhagavad Gita. The mantra is an important part of the upanayanam ceremony for young males in Hinduism, and has long been recited by Brahmin males as part of their daily rituals. Modern Hindu reform movements spread the practice of the mantra to include women and all castes and its use is now very widespread.

  2. Bhakti Shastri Study Course by Atmatattva Das

    “Whatever books we have got, it should be studied. Bhakti-shastri means Nectar of Devotion [bhakti-rasamrita-sindhu], Bhagavad-gita, Nectar of Instruction [upadeshamrita], Beyond Death – in this way we select some ten books. That is Bhakti-shastri… So from next year, unless one passes Bhakti-shastri, he cannot be second initiated.” – Srila Prabhupada, January 6, 1976
    This lecture series was recorded in Mayapur, 1990.

  5. Practice of Ayurveda by Swami Sivananda (PDF)

    The book "Practice of Ayurveda" by Swami Sivananda in PDF format.
     
    Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj was a healer of the body in his Purvashram (before he entered the Holy Order of Sannyasa). He was a born healer, with an extraordinary inborn love to serve humanity; that is why he chose the medical profession as a career. That is why he edited and published a health Journal "Ambrosia". That is why he went over to Malaya to serve the poor in the plantations there. And, strangely enough, that is why, he renounced the world and embraced the Holy Order of Sannyasa.
     
    He was a healer of the body and the soul. This truth is reflected in the Ashram which he has established in Rishikesh. The huge hospital equipped with modern instruments was set up and the entire Ashram where all are welcome to get themselves healed of their heart’s sores and thoroughly refresh themselves in the divine atmosphere of the holy place.
     
    Sri Swamiji wanted that all systems of healing should flourish. He had equal love and admiration for all systems of healing. He wanted that the best of all the systems should be brought out and utilised in the service of Man. He has written a number of books on all aspects of Healing—from the Naturopathic and Allopathic points of view. This one dealing with Ayurveda is a valuable addition to the healer’s armamentarium.
     
    Ayurveda is the Veda or knowledge of Ayus or life. It has been classified as the Fifth Veda.
     
    Ayurveda is a distinct Veda. It is even superior to the other Vedas because it gives life which is the basis of all enjoyments, study, meditation and Yoga Sadhana.
     
    Ayurveda is the science of life. It shows the way to remove diseases, to keep up sound health and attain longevity.
     
    Ayurveda was in vogue in India since very early times. The Ayurvedic and Siddha systems have played a very important and vital part in the sphere of public health. Their popularity is due to their availability, cheapness and efficacy.
     
    Here is a beautiful ideal of Charaka: "Not for self, not for the fulfilment of any earthly desire of gain, but solely for the good of suffering humanity should you treat your patients and so excel all. Those who sell the treatment of disease as merchandise gather the dust and neglect the gold."
     
    Charaka also says: "A physician who cannot enter into the innermost soul of the patient with the bright light of the lamp of his own knowledge cannot successfully treat any disease."
     
    India has ever been evolving art after art, science after science, as her contribution to the common heritage of all the nations of the world. Her greatest gift to the world is the gift of the spiritual science of Self-perfection. Next to it we should place this Science of Life, the Ayurveda, as a precious gift to be carefully developed and broadcast to all nations. It is a national duty of every Indian.

  6. Shiva Shankara Shambhu Bhajan (MP3)

    You can download the bhajan Shiva Shankara Shambhu in MP3 format here.
     
    At the highest level, Lord Shiva is regarded as limitless, transcendent, and unchanging. Shiva also has many benevolent and fearsome depictions. In benevolent aspects, he is depicted as an omniscient Yogi who lives an ascetic life on Mount Kailash, as well as a householder with wife Parvati and his two children, Ganesha and Kartikeya, and in fierce aspects, he is often depicted slaying demons. Shiva is also regarded as the patron god of yoga, meditation, and arts.
     
    The main iconographical attributes of Shiva are the third eye on his forehead, the snake Vasuki around his neck, the adorning crescent moon, the holy river Ganga flowing from his matted hair, the trishula as his weapon and the damaru as his musical instrument. Shiva is usually worshiped in the aniconic form of Lingam.

    (Note: The following paragraph has got a hidden meaning – this is to say that there is a raft available to cross over all the forces of Nature and to see the God beyond all of them – God himself is the raft – we have to seek His help to see Him. We need to understand that He, indeed is the raft. This paragraph also makes the serious reader wonder on what is the real meaning of the word "water" used throughout this mantra.)
