      The DLS Branch, Maryland USA has started a daily mailing for those who are
      subscribed to their mailing list , SIVANANDA DAILY READINGS, a systematic
      compilation of the writings of our Param Gurudev Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj
      as compiled by Sri Swami Venketesanandaji Maharaj and published by the Chiltern

      will be sent out daily, a new topic each day as in the book.

      Yours in service of Gurudev,


      PROSPERITY AND LIBERATION: Sri Ramakrishna, the Deputy Director General of
      postal services arrived and had the Master's Darshan in the office. A pious and
      devout soul, he came to the Ashram after many years. The Master entertained him
      and enquired about his promotion as Director General.

      "I want only your Grace, Swamiji," he replied.

      "Yes, yes, but Grace will come in two formsone is Bhukti (prosperity) and the
      other is Mukti (liberation)," the Master replied.

      "But I want only liberation, Swamiji," Sri Ramakrishna put in.

      "Even if you do not want it, Bhukti will come. Charity, generosity and purityif
      a man possesses these qualities, they automatically bring forth Bhukti and then
      Mukti in the end."

      Sri Ramakrishna took leave of the Master after taking a photograph.


      As they say, the company that you keep, the books that you read and the way in
      which you conduct yourself in your daily life, are supposed to be the insignia
      of your inner substance, real worth and intrinsic validity. And to keep company
      with giants of the Spirit like Gurudev Sivanandaji is to be within a very
      powerful energizing influence which brings together into a focus in its own
      manifestation of personality the aspirations of all mankind. --Swami

      Sivananda Day-to-Day is sent out weekly.
