      We have uploaded a discourse by Gurudev Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj

      paramount importance of dispassion for ones progress in the spiritual
      path. This discourse is at:

      THE MASTER'S WISDOM: An aged Madrasi Sadhu guest was sick. He had been
      provided with all comforts, a room, medicine and proper diet. At about
      11 a.m., a light flavour from the kitchen, which was near his room,
      attracted him outside. Venugopalji was requesting him to rest in the
      room and not to stir out too much.

      The Master was in the office, as also Dr. Sundari, who was on a visit to
      the Ashram. Both heard what was going on outside.

      Venugopalji came into the office to take the Master's instructions
      regarding the Sadhu's diet.

      "Give him whatever he asks for."

      Venugopalji was surprised. This to a patient who had been down with
      fever for the past four days!

      "Swamiji, he is feeling restless at present because he wants to eat all
      sorts of things."

      Dr. Sundari took her eyes off the book she had in her hand and fixed
      them on the Master, curiously awaiting his reaction.

      "If you give him good sambhar he will be all right."

      Everyone burst into laughter!

      "I am not joking," continued the Master. "He is a Madrasi Sadhu. He has
      long been deprived of his favourite tamarind. When the mind gets its
      satisfaction, the fever also will subside."

      Dr. Sundari agreed with the wisdom of the Master.

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

      "Have inner spiritual life. Fight against the dark Rajasic (passionate)
      and Tamasic (lethargic) forces. Pick up courage, power and strength from
      within. Practise regular meditation on the Self. Have a Self-centred
      mind free from desires. Conquer the mind and the senses. These are your
      real enemies. Thou art Light Divine. Know Thy real Divine nature and be
      ever happy." - Swami Sivananda
