Swami Rama (Translator) Swami Rama (Compiler)
Synopsis

Sing the name of the lord in every breath of life. Joy, joy, joy… Let me offer you The finest of intoxicants, a drink that can subdue All pain and inner Suffering, no matter how obscure. This drink I recommend to you, its value I assure. You drink the cup of worldly wine, and sing a song you know,Your drink creates a drowsiness. Your song but augurs woe I offer you a wine divine, a melody so pure, Your soul will wake, immersed in joy, and with my thought concur, That God's name strikes an inner chord of harmony and bliss. The infinite, the timeless, God created you for this. The melody of japa sung with breath and in the mind, No truer song than this can any concert artist find. So take the name, and sing the song, and let your heart be cleansed. Make the moments deep that you with your divine Self spend The japa might be heard as prayer, a kind of inner pleading, But no, let it resound within, fill your entire Being. Aum is the form, and one Holy Name true, of the sound of love Divine Of the awesome, amazing, Supreme Guru, the source of thee and thine. So repeat these words in your heart to imbue, the Vision of God everlasting: Ek Omkar Satanam Sri Wahe Guru Sing the Name of the Lord in every breath of life Joy, joy, joy.

About the authors

Swami Rama

Yogi, scientist, philosopher, humanitarian, and mystic poet, Swami Rama is the founder and spiritual head of the Himalayan International Institute of Yoga science and philosophy, with its headquarters in honesdale, Pennsylvania, and therapy and educational centers throughout the world. He was born in a Himalayan valley of Uttar Pradesh. India, in 1925 and was initiated and anointed in early childhood by a great sage of the Himalayas. He studied with many adepts, and then traveled to Tibet to study with his grandmaster. From 1949 to 1952 he held the prestige and dignity of Shankaracharya (spiritual leader) in Karvirpitham in the South of India. He then returned to the Himalayas to intensify his meditative practices in the cave monasteries and to establish an ashram in Rishikesh. Later he continued his investigation of Western psychology and philosophy at several European universities, and he taught in Japan before coming to the United States in 1969. The following year he served as a consultant to the Voluntary Controls project of the Research Development of the Menninger foundation. There he demonstrated, under laboratory conditions, precise control over his autonomic nervous system and brain. The findings of that research increased the scientific community's understanding of the human ability to control autonomic functioning and to attain previously unrecognized levels of consciousness. Shortly thereafter, Swami Rama founded the Himalayan Institute as a means to synthesize the ancient teaching of the East with the modern approaches of the West. He has played a major role in bringing the insights of yoga psychology and philosophy to the attention to the physicians and psychologists of the West. He continues to teach students around the world while intensifying his writing and meditative practices. He is the author of many books and currently spends most of his time in the mountains of Northern India and in Pennsylvania. U.S.A.
