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


      Last Wednesday (August 26) was the birthday of Lord Ganesha and Sunday
      (August 30) was the birthday of Srimati Radha Rani, the consort of Lord
      Krishna. To celebrate these occasions we have uploaded three essays
      dealing with the spiritual practices engaged by devotees during the
      festivals and also on the glory of Lord Ganesha and Srimati Radha Rani.

      The essays are:

      Ganesh Chaturthi By Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj

      Lord Ganesa--The Remover of Obstacles By Sri Swami Krishnanandaji Maharaj

      Sri Radha--The Divine Mystery By Sri Swami Krishnanandaji Maharaj

      There is a correction to the e-mail sent last week regarding the
      subscription to Voive of Sivananda. The draft should me made payable in
      the name of "VOICE OF SIVANANDA".

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      PATIENCE: There were quite a number of visitors sitting on the floor in
      the office. The Master entertained them with many a humour.

      "A rich man once invited a poor man to take food with him. The latter had
      been starving for three days. Empty dishes were placed on the table for
      both of them, but no food was served. The rich man acted as though he were
      eating from those empty dishes. Without getting annoyed at such insult,
      the poor man also pretended to eat like him. Soon the rich man was pleased
      with the patience of the poor man and ordered his servant to serve food on
      the dishes, and both of them ate sumptuously. Then the rich man appointed
      the poor man as his manager on a decent salary.

      "It was his patience that enabled the poor man to get the unexpected post
      of a manager. Therefore, develop patience."


      "Yoga is the separation from contact with pain. In this state, the powers
      working through the external senses and the internal senses are made to go
      back to their source, viz., the power of Self-consciousness,--here they
      rest in perfect peace. The noise of the senses ceases, and as a
      consequence of this, pain and sorrow are negated." - Swami Krishnananda

      Sivananda Day-to-Day is sent out weekly.
