- Apr 22, 2014Sivananda's Thought for the Day: 23 April 2014
SPEAK MEASURED WORDS
Control the mind skilfully and tactfully. Think correctly and clearly. Discipline the organ of speech. Speak sweetly, gently and truthfully. Become a man of measured words. Be humble and do prostrations mentally to all. Feel the Divine Presence everywhere. Give up vanity, pride and hypocrisy. Never hurt a man in thought, word and deed. Always do good and kind actions. You will attain supreme peace and eternal happiness. Attune your heart to the Lord by means of fervent and sincere prayer daily. Be humble and simple. Practise morality. Develop contentment. Drink the bliss of the Soul.
