      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      BEING WORTHY OF ONE'S NAME: The Master gave Darshan in the morning at
      10 a.m. He was in a jovial mood.

      A devotee from Kuala Lumpur came and prostrated.

      "What is the name of your daughter?" enquired the Master.

      "My daughter's name is Satgunam" (meaning 'good-natured').

      "Satgunam? Has she a quarrelsome nature? Is she good to you? Or is she
      Satgunam in name only?"

      "No, Swamiji, she is very good to me. She respects, adores and serves me
      nicely," replied the devotee.

      "That is it!" said the Master. "One should prove worthy of one's name.
      Some people keep a very beautiful name but their character is just the
      opposite. What is the use of having the name 'Annapoorna' but not giving a
      morsel of food to a poor man. Miss Rosy may be like a rose externally only
      but full of thorns inside! Mr Broadman will be only physically broad but
      narrow-minded at heart! As is the name so should be the character."

      All enjoyed this instructive humour of the Master and burst into laughter!


      "Culture is not just an art or literature or dancing or music or painting.
      Culture is good behaviour. Culture is refined manners. Culture is ethical
      perfection. Culture is Divine wisdom." - Swami Chidananda
