      September 28th marks the beginning of the nine day worship of the Divine

      "Practice of Bhakti Yoga" by Gurudev Sri Swami Sivanandaji is the title
      of the latest book released yesterday at Rishikesh. Sri Swami
      Krishnanandaji Maharaj said that this is one of Gurudev's first books
      and was written in his own hand, directly from his heart. The style is
      really straightforward and beautiful. This book can be purchased from
      our E-bookstore at:

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      LOVE FOR ALL: As it was raining, the evening Satsang programme was
      extended and the Ganga Arati delayed. So the Master called upon the
      daughters of Srimathi Liliane to deliver short lectures.

      A local resident of Rishikesh got a bit offended because his children
      also were not given an opportunity of speaking at the Satsang. He was
      fond of criticising the Ashram activities, too.

      But the Master's patience and love know no limits. He does not even
      adopt an attitude of indifference towards those who carp and cavil at
      him or at the institution. To them also he extends his love.

      The next day the first items on the programme were lectures by the
      children of the local resident. And the Master presented Rs. 10 to them
      as a token of his love and appreciation.


      "The Sadhana (spiritual practise) which the seeker does in order to
      destroy the impurities of his mind and heart, the Sadhana, which he does
      to burn up his egoism, attachments and all the aspects of his lower,
      human personality, this Sadhana constitutes the real worship of Durga or
      Kaali. It is not merely the external worship of this fearful form, but
      it is doing of one's own Sadhana with whole-heartedness, it is the doing
      of one's Sadhana with intense sincerity, with the entire integral being
      in man, that constitute real worship of the Mother." - Swami Chidananda
