About This Book
From the divine pen of H.H. Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj has emanated a ceaseless stream of soul-elevating spiritual literature; and it would be quite true to say that today His Holinessís message has penetrated every part of the world and has won for the forces of God and goodness millions of hearts into which Sri Swamiji has instilled a natural love of fellowmen and a keen aspiration to realise the goal of life.
Besides being the author of over 300 books, and besides getting published and distributed free on a worldwide scale, countless leaflets, pamphlets and books, Sri Swamiji has contributed inspiring articles to various newspapers and periodicals all over the world.
The present work is a collection of quite a number of such articles. They have already thrilled many hearts, and awakened many dormant souls. In order that they might give you permanent inspiration they have been reprinted in book-form and is presented to you as our humble love-offering. We earnestly pray that you will make the best use of it, practise Yoga and attain Realisation.

MY RESOLVES TODAY
I will speak truth today
I shall not bear ill-will towards any one
I will not become angry
I will serve the sick and the poor
I will recite Lordís Name for one hour
I will study religious book for one hour
I will bear insult and injury
I will not fear anyone on this earth
I will eat only four things today
I will observe silence for one hour
I will observe Brahmacharya for one month
Make these resolves as soon as
You get up from your bed
You will develop
And attain peace and strength
óSri Swami Sivananda

Salutations and prostrations unto Thee.
Thou art Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient.

Equal vision, balanced mind,
Faith, devotion and wisdom.
Grant us inner spiritual strength
To resist temptations and to control the mind.
Free us from egoism, lust, greed, hatred, anger and jealousy.
Fill our hearts with divine virtues.
Let us behold Thee in all these names and forms.
Let us serve Thee in all these names and forms.
Let us ever remember Thee.
Let us ever sing Thy glories.
Let Thy Name be ever on our lips.
Let us abide in Thee for ever and ever.
