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

      Namaste!

      The Global International Divine Life Society Conference came to a
      conclusion yesterday (Jan. 2). It was indeed a wonderful event with
      approximately 3,700 devotees from around the world attending. Guru
      Maharaj Sri Swami Chidanandaji graced us with his presence eight times
      during the 4 day conference. Guru Maharaj has asked all of us to very
      earnestly work for Peace in this New Millennium. He expounded on the
      dire need for Peace during two of his discourses and it was the main
      theme in his final discourse at the conference. Guru Maharaj said that
      nothing successful can be undertaken unless Peace prevails. Please visit
      the website of the Peace Council of which Guru Maharaj is a member and
      extend all the help that you can. The website of the Peace Council is:
      http://www.peacecouncil.org/

      During the conference many books and booklets were released. One among
      them is a reprint of the popular Sivananda Daily Readings which was
      compiled by Sri Swami Venkatesanandaji and had been out of print for a
      long time. Another is a new book by Guru Maharaj titled Awake! Realise
      Your Divinity. This publication is the follow up to the two other widely
      acclaimed volumes of Guru Maharaj's early morning meditation talks, i.e.
      Ponder These Truths and A Call to Liberation. The talks in the new book
      were given by Guru Maharaj on sacred days of worship. Another book,
      Chidananda Hoon, which was released on October 20th, 1999 was also
      available. This book is a 'grand pictorial' of Guru Maharaj. This book
      will be a delight for devotees as they feast their heart and eyes on the
      many different expressions of the Bliss of Guru Maharaj. Also available
      were many audio cassettes with talks and songs by Swami Sivananda, Swami
      Chidananda and Swami Krishnananda. These audio cassettes have been
      digitally mastered for superior quality. The voice of Sri Gurudev on
      these cassettes are very crisp. I have not heard a better quality
      production than the ones released at this Conference.

      We have uploaded some photographs from the first day of the conference.
      A more detailed report will be given at a later date. Please visit
      http://www.divinelifesociety.org/ for message of Guru Maharaj for the
      family of Gurudev Swami Sivananda as well as photographs of the
      conference and information on ordering the items described above.

      We have uploaded Sri Gurudev's New Year Message for this month's
      discourse. This is at:
      http://www.SivanandaDlshq.org/discourse/jan2000.htm

      A recent video clip of Sri Swami Krishnanandaji Maharaj has been
      uploaded to Swamiji's website. A talk by Swami Krishnanandaji titled
      'Hints for the Practice of Yoga' has also been uploaded to Swamiji's
      site. Swamiji's website is at:

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,

      Pannir

      NATURE OF THE SELF: "Shantanandaji, come here! What is the universal
      disease?" the Master asked, and himself answered, "Jealousy and envy."

      "How can we infer that the Self is an embodiment of bliss?"

      And again he himself answered, "You like a mango because it gives you
      pleasure when you eat it. Beyond everything else in this world, everyone
      loves himself most. Therefore, the Self must be happiness, that is, It
      must be an embodiment of eternal bliss. Om Namah Shivaya! Take this
      mango. You can go now."

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

      "Know the value of time. Time is most precious. Utilise every second
      profitably. Live every moment of your life for the realisation of your
      ideal and goal. Do not procrastinate. That 'tomorrow' will never come.
      Now or never. Abandon idle gossiping. Kill egoism, laziness and inertia.
      Forget the past. A glorious and brilliant future is awaiting you." -
      Swami Sivananda
