      We have uploaded a book by Gurudev Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj titled
      "Self-Knowledge". Thanks to Sumathi for the help in preparing this book.
      This book is at:


      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      WINNING THE HEARTS OF OTHERS: While returning to his room the Master
      saw an inmate of the Ashram, who was a student of Vedanta.

      Looking at him he said, "You are only a Vedantin? You should also
      practise Asanas and Pranayama. You should go for a walk both in the
      morning and evening for half an hour. You should improve your health.
      You should be more sociable. You should speak sweet words and win the
      hearts of others. You should become a Poorvabhashi, a person who talks
      to another first. As soon as you see someone beside you, you should
      talk to him first, instead of expecting him to talk to you first. You
      should talk to him in an intimate manner as though he is already known
      to you.

      "By speaking sweetly you can win the hearts of others. You should also
      practise Poorva-Namaskar--that is, doing Namaskar to others before they
      do to you. You should know these techniques of winning the hearts of
      all by being more sociable and sweet."


      "Even a little victory in the inner battle with your mind and senses
      will develop your will-power and give you more assurance and courage.
      But do not be swayed by success. Be humble and grateful." - Swami
