      March 11th is the holy appearance day of Sri Gauranga
      Mahaprabhu and the festival of Holi. There is an
      article on the life of Sri Gauranga by Sri Swami
      Sivanandaji at:

      The significance of the Holi festival has been
      explained by Sri Swami Sivanandaji in his article at:

      We have also posted an article by Sri Swami
      Sivanandaji titled "The Supreme Reality" at:

      Sri Swami Sivanandaji has written more than 300 books
      on a myriad of subjects. Each week a synopsis of one
      title from this ocean of knowledge shall be given
      (out of the nearly 160 books that are currently in

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      Book Synopsis

      A Boon To Diabetics
      By Swami Sivananda

      The myriad-minded Swamiji's illuminating insight has
      penetrated and illumined every recess of human
      nature, of the triune man-body, mind and soul. The
      science of sweeping is as important and familiar to
      him as the Science of the Self. He rejects nothing;
      he accepts everything and views them in a higher
      light and gives an entirely new and yet old technique
      for the integration of the entire personality of man.
      Whenever one tries to seek in his encyclopaedic works
      for a solution of a problem or problems, one is never
      disappointed. In him we find a rare genius who
      touches every point of life with equal clarity and
      facility and who gives a touch of gracefulness to the
      commonest thing he does. It is no wonder, therefore,
      that such a versatile saint, who had already given us
      such well-known books as Family Doctor, Health and
      Long Life, Practical Household Remedies, Health and
      Happiness and Practice of Nature Cure, should now
      present to us a fresh boon of the kind that readers
      will find in this brochure on diabetes. There are a
      number of pamphlets and books on the subject. But
      what distinguishes this brochure from them all is its
      approach to the problem, which is as exhaustive and
      as many-sided as its author.

      In the first part of the book a detailed analysis is
      made about the nature of diabetes and its cure, in
      general. Then the various kinds of urine-tests are
      described, followed by a brief but adequate
      explanation of the allopathic, homeopathic,
      Ayurvedic, naturopathic and chromopathic treatments
      of diabetes. Then the Swami goes on to describe the
      Yogic panacea for diabetes and gives all the
      necessary dietetic hints for a diabetic. Thus
      concludes the first section of the book.

      The book has also a philosophical import. Swamiji
      describes how spiritual strength can conquer
      diabetes. An index to diabetic treatment is added at
      the end of the book. In the present edition a
      thorough revision of the material has been made in
      the light of recent developments in medical

      LOVING APPRECIATION: A certain monk who had done some
      useful service to the institution began to lead an
      idle life of comfort. The Master would not ask him to
      work or to leave the Ashram. Instead, he commented,
      "For the work that he has done, I am bound to look
      after him for five or six lives to come!"


      "All great Hindu festivals have religious, social and
      hygienic elements in them. Holi is no exception.
      Every season has a festival of its own. Holi is the
      great spring festival of India. Being an agricultural
      country, India's two big festivals come during the
      harvest time when the barns and granaries of our
      farmers are full and they have reason to enjoy the
      fruits of their hard labour. The harvest season is a
      festive season all over the world." - Swami Sivananda
