Pearls of Wisdom

by Swami Sivananda

 

PUBLISHERS’ NOTE

The Supreme Being is an Ocean of Wisdom. The individual soul takes dips in it during deep meditation. The sage of Self-realisation dives deep into it, in Samadhi.

Even among sages, it is given only to a few to gather the pearls from the depths of this ocean of consciousness and to return to the shore, to share that wealth with all. Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj is one such sage with a divine mission. The Pearls of Wisdom he has gathered during his spiritual dives into the ocean of wisdom, he has presented in this precious book, for the enrichment of our soul.
