Free yourselves from egoism and attachment.
Discipline thy minds and senses through detachment.
Identify not with the body, which is illusory.
Have a balance of mind in pleasure and misery.
Work is worship.
Serve all, the poor, the sick, the needy and all.
Service purifies the heart and the soul.
Service leads to knowledge.
That is the goal.

The strength that will enable you to smile away all losses and calamities, and say ‘Noting has happened.’
This strength you can have if you fix your mind on that Eternal…Continue

"The sun does not shine there, nor do the moon and the stars, nor do lightnings shine and much less fire.
All the lights of the world cannot be compared even to a ray of the inner light of the Self.
Merge yourself in this light of lights and enjoy the supreme Deepavali.

Have full faith in Apta Vakyas – the words of seers and Yogis who have realised and have given their emphatic declaration in the Upanishads – Yo Vai Bhuma Tat Sukham; Na Alpe Sukham Asti- Chandogya Upanishad 7.23.1 (The Infinite is the satisfying happiness. In the finite no happiness). You can get that Supreme Bliss only in that transcendental Bhuma which is not conditioned by time, space and causation.

You will never find these instructions in the books that you study in the University.
Let us all adopt the Bhava mentioned in the Upanishads.
Let us all follow the instructions contained in the Upanishads.
Then your hearts will be purified; all the evil Vritis(a wave in the mind lake) of the mind will be eradicated and the knowledge of the Self will descend in to that purified heart.
We shall realise the Atma or Brahman.

Sivananda’s address to Students at the Calcutta Univercity. Om.
In the beginning there was the Word, the Word was with God, the Word was God.
That Word is OM.
It is the word of power.
It is your real name.
Your real name is not Chatterjee, Banerjee, or Roy.
It is OM.
Let us, therefore, chant OM with feeling, with Bhava(feeling).
Om is infinity, eternity, Satchidananda, Existence-Knowledge-Bliss Absolute.
