      Om Namo Bhagavate Sivanandaya!
      Om Namo Bhagavate Chidanandaya!
      Om Namo Bhagavate Krishnanandaya!

      Namaste!

      Last week I wasn't clear on the form of payment to be sent to The Divine
      Life Society in response to Swami Chidanandaji's appeal for help for
      victims of the cyclone in Orissa (refer to:
      http://www.SivanandaDlshq.org/branches/chs.htm#urgent). Hence I
      reproduce below a more detailed description of the form of payments
      acceptable to the Ashram:

      The donations may be sent by British Postal Order or US Postal Order,
      crossed and endorsed to 'The Divine Life Society', or by International
      Postal Money Order, or Bank Draft. Please do not send cash, local
      currencies or personal cheques.

      We have uploaded several articles on religions of the world and an
      article on the life of Tibet's great Yogi, Milarepa, by Gurudev Sri
      Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj. The articles are:

      Zoroastrianism
      http://www.SivanandaDlshq.org/religions/zoroastrianism.htm

      Taoism
      http://www.SivanandaDlshq.org/religions/taoism.htm

      Confucianism
      http://www.SivanandaDlshq.org/religions/confucianism.htm

      Shintoism

      Milarepa

      In regards to helping feed the hungry in Orissa (and around the world)
      devotees can also help provide a simple meal for a hungry person daily
      by just clicking on the button at the websites listed below (on a daily
      basis). This is a service paid for by corporate sponsors.

      1) For the hungry in Orissa:
      http://www.causeanaffect.org/

      2) For the hungry around the world:

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,

      FOLLOW THE GOLDEN MEAN: At the night Satsang, Sri Franz Von Poncet, an
      aspirant from South Africa, who had been staying at the Ashram for the
      past five months, came to the Master to get some prasad from his hands.

      He looked so lean that one could even count his ribs. He avoided taking
      even the necessary food and meditated all the time.

      Noticing his poor health the Master advised him, "Ohji, you must take
      care of your health. You should eat well. Torturing the body is not
      Yoga. You will become so weak that you will not be able to sit for
      meditation. The Gita says that Yoga is not for one who eats too much nor
      for one who does not eat at all. So do not go to extremes. Be moderate.
      Follow the golden mean. Eat well. Do some exercise both morning and
      evening. In no way is this going to obstruct your meditation. Asanas and
      exercise, on the other hand, will help your meditation."

      -----------------------------------------------------

      "Great things have small beginnings. All growth is gradual. To be
      perfectly unperturbed, by anything, in all circumstances, looking upon
      all things as passing phenomena, ever feeling a distinct, silent witness
      to all the experiences of life--these are the marks of a spiritual
      aspirant." - Swami Sivananda
