Sivananda daily reading Thursday 26 February 2015

BE GOOD DO GOOD

Swami Sivananda

Good is the conquest over evil.
It is not the absence of evil.
Little self-denial, honest service, little words of cheer, encouragement, sympathy and kindness, little acts of kindness, little virtuous deeds, little silent victorious over temptations,– these will have a long way to the attainment of Eternal Bliss, perennial joy, everlasting peace and immortality.

Sivananda daily reading

LIVE IN LOVE
Swami Sivananda
Without love life becomes narrow, limited and is replete with misfortune.

Without love, life is a prey to countless evils.

Without love, life is a victim to sins and propensities to hatred.

Verily, with love, life is the extensive life of joy.

With love nothing is impossible; everything shall be thine and all shall be well and good with thee.

Live in this love in daily life.

Sivananda daily reading - Sunday, 22.02.2015

Swami Sivananda

Charity is a sister-virtue of generosity. It is a fulfillment of magnanimity and nobility.

Gift should be given with faith; it should never be given without faith.

It should be given in plenty, with modesty, with sympathy.

Charity is universal love.

The deeds of charity you have done will stay forever with you.

Give cheerfully, quickly and without hesitation. Contd…

SHARE WITH ALL

Swami Sivananda

Share with others what you have – physically, mental, moral and spiritual. Do not hoard wealth. Do not covet the wealth of others. In sharing there is joy and peace. Sharing generates cosmic love and destroys greed. Sharing removes selfishness and creates selflessness. Sharing purifies the heart. Sharing develops oneness. Share everything with all.

Thursday 19 February 2015 CELIBACY

Swami Sivananda
Preserve the vital force (veerya) very, very carefully. Veerya is God in motion or manifestation-Vibhuti. Veerya is all power. Veerya is all money. Veerya is the essence of life, thought and intelligence. Observe celibacy according to your age and circumstances. Restrict the indulgence to once a month. Decrease it gradually to once in a year. Finally take a vow of abstinence for whole life.

Sivananda daily reading - Complete Surrender

Sunday 15 February 2015

COMPLETE SURRENDER

Swami Sivananda

“I have come my Lord, to be yours and yours own. Take me and do whatever you like with me.

To do is my business not to wish for fruits thereof, that is yours.

I shall contented to be wafted like a dry leaf in the gale of Thy will.

I am Thine, all is Thine, my Lord, Thy will be done.”

Sivananda daily reading - Cat Yoga

Swami Sivananda
It is Cat-Yoga. The kitten cries aloud and the mother cat runs at once to catch it by the mouth.

So also Lord Krishna runs immediately as He did in the case of Draupadi and Gajendra to rescue the devotees and sends His Grace down (descent of Divine Grace).

Sivananda daily reading

Even so, you only must remove the two poisonous fangs of the mind - 'I-ness' and 'mine-ness'. Then you can allow the mind to go wherever it likes. Then you will always have the feeling of the presence of God. You must also renounce the attachment to renunciation, which is very deep rooted. You must renounce the idea 'I have renounced everything; I am a great renunciate'. This attachment of aspirants is a greater evil than that of the householders: 'I am a landlord; I am a Brahmana, etc'…

Sivananda daily reading

Vedanta does not want you to renounce the world. It wants you to change your mental attitude, and give up this false, illusory 'I-ness' and 'mine-ness'. The snake charmer removes only the two poisonous fangs of the cobra. The snake remains the same. It hisses, raises its hood, and shows its fangs. In fact, it does everything as before. The snake charmer has changed his mental attitude towards the snake. He has a feeling now that it has no…

Sivananda daily reading

Swami Sivananda
He who has merely withdrawn himself from worldly possessions, cannot be regarded as having renounced the world altogether. But he who is living in actual contact with the world, finds out its faults. He who is freed from every passion, and whose soul depends on nothing, may be said to have truly renounced the world. Read the story of raja Sikhidhwaja and queen Chudala in the Yoga Vasishta. Contd…

Swami Sivananda: Sunday, February 1st 2015

Swami Sivananda
What is to be renounced is the bheda buddhi (divisive intellect), which says, 'I am superior to that man, I am the body.' and the kartrtva abhimana, which thinks, 'I am the doer'. There is no use in your renouncing your home, wife, and children. You must destroy moha(attachment) for the body, children, money, house, property. Then you will get that state of immortality from which you will never return. Contd…

Swami Sivananda: Saturday, January 31st 2015

WHAT TO RENOUNCE
Swami Sivananda
Mere outward giving up of things is nothing. It is not real renunciation. Real tyaga or sanyas (renunciation) consists in absolute renunciation of all vasanas (tendencies), and the destruction of the heart-knot of ignorance, the chit-jada-granthi (confusion between the conscious subject and inert object). Contd…

Sivananda daily reading - 27th January 2015

Swami Sivananda
The circle of darkness and degeneracy has reached its climax. Come now, arise victorious, and step up towards the zenith of perfection that awaits you. Live with a definite purpose - do not roam about aimlessly. Walk with a definite aim. Climb the hill of knowledge steadily, and reach the summit of the temple of Brahman, the grand abode of the life immortal. Contd…

Swami Sivananda
You came alone, naked, and weeping. You will go alone, naked, and weeping. Then why are you proud of your false wealth and false knowledge? Become humble, meek. You will conquer the world with humility. Become pure in thought, word and deed. This is the secret of spiritual life. Contd…
