      "A Pictorial Philosophy of Yoga" is the title of the latest discourse
      uploaded to Sri Swami Krishnanandaji's website. Sri Swamiji Maharaj

      circumstances in which we are placed in this world. This discourse is

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      MAINTAIN SPIRITUAL DIARY: Sarala Deviji was a very earnest aspirant and
      a pure-hearted Bhakta.

      "Swamiji, kindly tell me some method of controlling this mind. It seems
      that we will never be able to control it." Her husband just looked on.

      "Do Japa. Be regular in your Sadhana. Do Kirtan also. Through practice
      alone will you be able to control the mind. You should maintain a
      spiritual diary. Now you are not doing this."

      "I do maintain the diary, Swamiji."

      The Master's face brightened.

      "But I am ashamed of sending it to you as my Sadhana is very irregular."

      "Whatever little you practise and however irregularly, you should send
      me the diary. Then only will there be the inducement to be regular in
      daily Sadhana and to evolve rapidly."


      "Bharatavarsha, as India is known, has always been a land of eternal
      ideals and sublime idealism, and of supermen who converted these ideals
      into actuality in their everyday life. Gandhiji was such an ideal
      superman. His name has become synonymous with unbending moral rectitude,
      heroic allegiance to truth, and perfect righteousness both in private
      and public life." - Swami Sivananda
