      BUSINESS WITH GOD: Sri Om Prakash, a young friend of Sri Suri, a devotee of the
      Master, came from Delhi one morning. The Master enquired about him.

      "Om Prakashji, what is your ambition? Is it to get a job or to start a

      "I want to do some business, Swamiji."

      "That is good. Start a good business and work hard. Earn four or five lakhs of
      rupees, then stop the business and start business with God. Business with God
      is very profitable, because your investment is only a little selfless service,
      a little prayer, a little Japa and meditation. But the profit you get from it
      is everlasting peace and happiness."


      Man can never live without God, for God is the Whole and man is only a part.
      Man's religion is his Dharma and this Dharma can be in its real sense only one,
      for its goal is one. --Swami Sivananda
