      We have uploaded a book by Gurudev Sri Swami
      Sivanandaji Maharaj titled "Kingly Science Kingly
      Secret". This book consists of detailed commentary on
      select verses of the Bhagavad Gita from the published
      writings of Gurudev. This book is at:

      August 1 is the holy appearance day of Sri Goswami
      Tulasidas. He is the illustrious author of
      Ramcharitmanas (Hindi version of the Ramayana).
      Gurudev has written an article about Goswami
      Tulasidasji at:

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      INSTRUCTIONS ON STUDY: Hari Badri Narayan of South
      Africa, who is now a student of Lucknow University,
      has come to the Ashram for the summer vacation.

      "O Hari! go on with your class lessons here also.
      Prepare well for the next year. The lessons of the
      first six months you should study properly now
      itself. If you have a good grounding you will be able
      to grasp the lessons quickly in the class. Later,
      even if you have to be absent from the class owing to
      illness or other reasons, you will not be the loser.
      And in the end you will get brilliant success in the
      final examination. You should practise Sadhana and
      also render some service to the Ashram. At the same
      time you should prepare yourself for the next year's

      The Master gave the above instructions to Hari Badri
      Narayan. Some time previously he arrived at the
      Ashram after losing his things and being stranded in
      India. The Master had obtained admittance for him at
      the Lucknow University.


      "Yoga is not hidden in caves. It is not in thick,
      sequestered forests. It is not to be found in
      mountain herbs. God is not a coward to run away from
      towns, cities and villages. He is all-pervading. The
      Gita does not want you to flee from your worldly
      career to the solitude of the forest. It does not bid
      you hide in a cave of the Himalayas for attaining the
      supreme peace of the Eternal. It tells you to resist
      unrighteousness, to develop divine virtues and try to
      attain Self-realisation in and through the world." -
      Swami Sivananda
