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

      Namaste!

      We have uploaded biographies of two of India's foremost sages of ancient
      times from Gurudev Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj's book "Lives of
      Saints". The first is of Maharshi Vyasa, who arranged the Vedas, wrote
      the Brahma Sutras, the Mahabharata and the Srimad Bhagavatam:
      http://www.SivanandaDlshq.org/saints/vyasa.htm
      and
      the second is of Sage Yajnavalkya, the great Upanishadic sage:

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,

      PROSELYTISING ACTIVITIES USELESS: Sri Rajagopala Iyer was talking to the
      Master about the proselytising activities of some missions.

      The Master said, "What is in this? A Christian comes, hands you a Bible
      and converts you to Christianity; a Muslim gives you a copy of the Koran
      and changes you into a Muslim; a Hindu has his Gita for the same
      purpose.

      "Truth is one. All the scriptures expound this Truth, though in
      different words. What purpose can ever be served by these proselytisers?
      They only change a man's external cloak and a few of his habits. Can
      they ever go near the Atma, the eternal witness? Only dull-witted people
      engage themselves in such missions. Wise men only seek to strengthen a
      man's faith in his own religion."

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

      "If anything is dear and lovable, the thing that is loved is not
      actually loved, it is not dear. The Self in the object is what is
      actually attracting. The Self in the object attracts the Self in us and
      then the object looks attractive. It is not the object that is
      attractive, because a corpse cannot attract anybody, a dead body does
      not attract. It is the life principle that attracts, the Selfhood in the
      object is attracting. The beauty and the grandeur of the life principle,
      it is that which attracts." - Swami Krishnananda
