      Om Namo Bhagavate Sivanandaya!
      Om Namo Bhagavate Chidanandaya!
      Om Namo Bhagavate Krishnanandaya!


      During the retreat with blessed and worshipful Gurudev Sri Swami
      Chidanandaji Maharaj in Maryland, Gurudev mentioned that he would like the
      whole world to read Sri Swami Sivanandaji's "Essence of Yoga". This book
      is given to all new members of The Divine Life Society because of its
      unique nature among the Master's books. The intent of the books has been
      beautifully described by the Master himself:

      "For sincere spiritual aspirants, marching boldly in the Adhyatmic
      (spiritual) field, this handy publication provides, succinctly,
      innumerable PRACTICAL hints. Every page abounds in much valuable
      information in a condensed form. The laconic lessons contained in this
      book should speak for themselves. If this proves in any way useful to the
      ardent Mumukshus (seekers after liberation), the author's sincere
      endeavour to help them will be more than amply fulfilled."

      This book is now available for download in both PDF and HTML formats from
      our free books page at

      SERVICE MORE IMPORTANT: The Master was proceeding to Satsang, accompanied
      by some of his devotees and disciples, including Sri Pushpa Anand and
      party of Dehra Dun. He enquired of Sri Pushpa, "Have you taken your food?"

      She replied in the negative.

      Then the Master remarked, "Now there is nobody to look after the visitors.
      One is always repeating, 'Sivoham, Sivoham', another keeps the name of
      Jagath Ateetananda. A third reads the Yoga Vasishta and says that there is
      no world in the three periods of time; but if there is no salt in the dhal
      he will not be able to take it! Instead of studying the Yoga Vasishta and
      Vedanta it is better to eat properly and serve. If God wishes let Him give

      quick realisation." - Swami Sivananda
