      Om Namo Bhagavate Sivanandaya!
      Om Namo Bhagavate Chidanandaya!
      Om Namo Bhagavate Krishnanandaya!


      We have uploaded the inspiring biography of Sri Jnanadev (also known as
      Jnaneshwar) by Gurudev Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj. Sri Jnanadev wrote
      his commentary on the Gita (Jnaneshwari) at the age of thirteen. Sri Swami
      Krishnanandaji Maharaj recommends reading the Jnaneshwari to get a good
      understanding of the Gita. This biography is at:

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      TRANSFORMING ONESELF: One of the Ashram inmates who had a grievance, came
      into the office with a complaint against an aspirant who had insulted him.
      The Master counselled forbearance.

      Later it was pointed out to the Master by someone that the offending party
      had a sharp tongue in truth.

      "Everybody has a sharp tongue. After all, we are all human beings only.
      But the beauty lies in controlling it. Before an offending word is uttered
      you should introspect and check it. And even if you occasionally happen to
      use the wrong expression, you should try to learn the art of smoothening
      out the matter at once. You should apologise to the man whom you have
      offended, talk to him sweetly, ask his pardon and pacify him. Gradually
      your entire nature will be changed."


      "Within a period of twenty-five years, they (Jnanadev and his siblings)
      broke down the bigotry of the Brahmins of the period, raised them from the
      darkness of ignorance, firmly established the path of Bhakti and Jnana,
      made people realise that all were equal and that it was the actions which
      counted for the glory and excellence of a man and not the accident of
      birth or the mere study of the Vedas and Vedanta." - Swami Sivananda
