      CIGARETTE PROPAGANDISTS: The Master's eagerness for
      spreading the Lord's Name was boundless. During the
      1938 Kumbha Mela at Hardwar, a party of cigarette
      propagandists came to Rishikesh, striking up vulgar
      music. The Master saw them. He immediately called for
      tea, fruit and biscuits. He offered them to the
      cigarette vendors and then coaxed them into singing
      Kirtan.

      "Ohji, you have sold enough of cigarettes. You have
      sung enough of the glory of tobacco. Now, why not
      sing Hari's Names? Come, sing with me." The whole
      place soon resounded with the Lord's Name.

      The Master then gave the party a present of five
      rupees and much spiritual literature. And he
      requested them, "Along with your cigarette songs,
      sing some Kirtans also. Along with the cigarette
      advertisement, distribute these spiritual tracts
      also."

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

      "A man of easily irritable nature cannot enjoy peace
      of mind. His brain, nerves and muscles are always
      under high tension. He is wasting every minute
      abundant muscular and nerve energy and brain-power.
      He is a very weak man though he is endowed with
      physical strength, because he loses his balance of
      mind very easily. If you really want to enjoy
      unruffled peace and abiding joy, you must try to
      possess a calm, controlled and balanced mind by
      eradicating worry, anxieties, fear, anger, and
      impulses." - Swami Sivananda
