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


      A new site has been launched to keep devotees informed about the 2nd
      Global International
      Divine Life Society Conference at Cuttack, Orissa, India from 30th
      December 2001 - 2nd January 2002. This site is regularly updated with
      reports of Sri Swami Jivanmuktanandaji's travels around the globe
      inspiring devotees to attend the conference. Two recent talks by Swamiji
      in Malaysia titled "How to Live Life Divine" and "Feelings of Higher
      Life in Ourselves, to Live In Peace, Happiness and Bliss is Spiritual
      Life" has been uploaded to this site. There is also a recent
      announcement by Guru Maharaj Sri Swami Chidanandaji to be published in
      the Oriya Magazine "Divya Sandesh". The brochure for the conference has
      also been uploaded. This website is at:

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      WORSHIP SHOULD BE SIMPLE: A devotee suggested that the Sri Chakra
      worship, with all its formalities and rituals, should be performed in
      the Ashram for the purpose of acquiring wealth. He felt that the income
      of the Ashram was quite inadequate for the present needs and for the
      full manifestation of the Master's own dynamism.

      "Sri Chakra worship is no doubt good," said the Master. "Just as we
      worship Shiva, Krishna and Rama, we may also do formal worship of Devi
      too, but not for the sake of money. Why, we are already getting enough
      money even without this worship."

      "But, Swamiji, the expenditure always exceeds the income. And if we had
      lakhs, the expenditure would still increase and then all Swamiji's
      wishes would be fulfilled."

      "Worship should always be simple and performed with feeling and
      devotion, unhindered by unnecessary rules, rituals and formalities. It
      should be such that one could perform it after a mere wash of the hands
      and feet."

      "Swamiji, I have heard it said that a certain Sri Vidya Upasaka's life
      has been completely transformed after his initiation, and his financial
      position greatly improved."

      "Could not Lord Shiva give us all wealth?" asked the Master. "Cannot
      Lord Rama give us, or Lord Krishna? Why, Lord Shiva has been so much
      agitated by the powerful Rudra chants at the Viswanath temple that He
      has run away from Kailas and Benares and taken His abode at the Ashram
      temple. Devi worship is good but do not do it with a desire to increase
      our wealth. If the Lord so desires, He will fill the Ashram with gold.
      Kubera himself is already in charge of our finances because we are doing
      His work."


      "Turning away from God is disease. He who turns to God is at perfect
      ease within." - Swami Venkatesananda
