      We have uploaded an article by Gurudev Sri Swami
      Sivanandaji Maharaj on practicing art as yoga. The
      article titled "Brush Yoga" is at:

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      OVERCOMING IMPRESSIONS: The young man who had killed
      the scorpion last night appeared before the Master in
      the morning. His countenance indicated the severe
      mental conflict he had been undergoing.

      The Master noticed this the moment his eyes fell on
      him. "Ohji, no harm is done. The impressions are
      already there. They try to express themselves and
      thus strengthen themselves every time an opportunity
      offers itself. It might so happen that very often you
      find yourself powerless to restrain yourself, but
      every time these impressions get the upper hand, sit
      down after the event and calmly analyse your conduct.
      Repent, regret and resolve to correct yourself.
      Slowly and gradually the impressions will get thinned
      out and will be eventually annihilated. The evil
      thought of killing will later never arise in the
      mind. This is the state of a saint."

      After a while the Master added, "It is quite possible
      to achieve complete success if you practise
      diligently. Saints do not drop from heaven. They are
      made through constant practice. I also was killing
      scorpions once. Strive and attain perfection."


      "God is the Inner Ruler. He goads the body, mind and
      senses to work. Become an instrument in the hands of
      the Lord. Do not expect thanks or appreciation for
      your work. Do actions as your duty and offer them and
      their fruits to the Lord. You will be freed by the
      bonds of Karma. Your heart will be purified soon." -
      Swami Sivananda
