      "Venkatesanandaji is not a small boy. All the Ashram work he is doing. I
      must tell all this, so that other people may be inspired to emulate his
      example. He has not uttered a single word that could displease me. If I
      want to get some work done urgently, the next morning it is ready; he
      would do it sitting up the whole night. He has no ego. He will never
      say: "This is not good." He is pleasing in manners. We should always try
      to please everybody. People generally bring in the story of the donkey,
      the old man and his son, in support of their argument that it is not
      possible to please everybody. This is wrong. I always try to please
      everybody, whatever be the nature of people. When a man comes to me, I
      find out what is good in him and try to please him. Though it may not
      always be possible, you must try to please all to the maximum extent
      open to you." - Swami Sivananda


      Om Namo Bhagavate Sivanandaya!

      Today (Dec. 29th) is the holy occasion of revered and worshipful Sri
      Swami Venkatesanandaji Maharaj's 79th birthday anniversary.

      In celebration of Swamiji's birthday we uploaded a booklet titled "The

      Rishikesh, for the celebration of the 34th birthday of Sri Swami
      Venkatesanandaji. This booklet also contains 38 pictures of Sri Swami
      Venkatesanandaji with eminent saints and personages. Please download
