      DO NOT RENOUNCE GURU:

      The Master was giving prasad to various people and he also offered it to
      Swami Nityanandaji. The latter had taken a vow not to accept prasad or any
      eatable from anybody. The Master knew of this already, for on a previous
      occasion also Swami Nityanandaji had declined to accept prasad from the
      Master when he offered it.

      This time the compassionate Master wanted to guide his erring disciple and
      said, "You do not take prasad because of your dispassion. People two
      thousand miles away come here for this prasad but you do not want it. You
      can renounce everything but the Guru should never be renounced."

      "Watch your mind very carefully. Be vigilant. Be on the alert. Do not allow
      the waves of irritability, jealousy, hatred and lust to disturb you. These
      dark waves are enemies of peaceful living, meditation and wisdom."- Swami
      Sivananda
