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


      In this month's discourse, Swami Venkatesanandaji Maharaj expounds on
      Grace and Self-effort based on the teachings of the Yoga-Vasishtha. The
      title of the discourse is "The Key to Discovery" and is at:

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      TRUE SAINTLINESS: "Let it drink," came the prompt and spontaneous command
      of the Master, as someone was trying to frighten away a monkey that was
      drinking the water kept for the use of the office staff.

      The person who ran with a stone halted, let the monkey drink its fill and
      then quietly brought another bucket of water from the Ganges.

      "You cannot judge a man's heart from the big charity that he does and the
      huge hospital that he builds. Watch for little incidents such as these.
      When you have brought water for a good purpose and a monkey happens to
      spoil it, how do you react during the first split-second? What is the
      first thought that arises in your mind? What is the very first impulse?
      That determines whether you are a real saint or not."


      "Goodness is good. To live is to turn away from evil (reverse spelling).
      But that is not enough, for "live" contains in it the seed of all evil
      (anagram of veil )--"i" (ego). When that "i" is replaced by its
      self-negation "o", live becomes "love" which is God." - Swami
