- Sivananda's Thought for the Day: 29 April 2011
The greatest insult received before respectable gentlemen is the beginning of inner spiritual growth. The greatest pain, sorrow and grief are the beginnings of saintliness. All should reject you. All should hate you, desert you and kick you aside. Then only will the soul be properly disciplined and fit to receive God's Light.
