      NAMASKAR SADHANA: Swami Satchidananda Mataji had mentioned in a speech
      which she delivered, how she formerly used to feel unwilling to
      prostrate to others.

      On his way back to his room from the office, the Master turned to her
      and asked, "Where is the need to prostrate to G.? She belongs to a
      different order and is not a Sannyasin. Why should a Sannyasin
      prostrate to a householder?"

      Satchidananda Mataji replied, "I saw other Sannyasins prostrating to

      The Master then said, "There is no harm in prostrating to all, for all
      are manifestations of the Lord. I do prostration even to the cow-dung,
      for, everything is Brahman. Doing prostration is by itself a Sadhana.
      It is Namaskar Sadhana. You should not think, 'He is a thief, he is a
      very wicked man.' The Lord Himself has said in the Gita, 'I am the
      gambling of the cheat'. By doing prostration, good health is acquired
      and life is prolonged. There was a great saint of Maharashtra who used

      "You may not actually prostrate, but are you ready to do prostration to
      pigs, bulls and asses? All are manifestations of God. So you should be
      ready to prostrate to all. There should be no inner conflict. Your
      prostration should be whole-hearted and sincere."


      "The training of the intellect should go hand in hand with the
      unfoldment of the Soul." - Swami Sivananda
