About This Book
In this book you will find the true way to lasting peace, real happiness and freedom from all pain and sorrow. They will lead you to Immortality.
This book is meant to be a daily companion to the aspiring seeker on his journey along the path of arduous Yoga and inner spiritual Sadhana. This is a volume to which you can constantly refer for daily inspiration and upliftment of the spirit. Though brief, it is, at the same time also comprehensive in its scope and touches upon all aspects of the life spiritual. It is filled with invaluable instructions and admonitions and serves as an ideal blueprint for living the Divine Life.
This book of sublime spiritual admonition and guidance is a wave of the life-living waters from the living stream of Lokasangraha (selfless service unto humanity), and Seva (service) that flows forth from the dedicated personality and life’s Mission of Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj.
This present volume is one such spiritual messenger from the Abode of Bliss where Siva dwells by Ganga’s side, coming to fill your life with light, bliss and Divine unfoldment.
The Universal Prayer
O Adorable Lord of Mercy and Love!
Salutations and prostrations unto Thee.
Thou art Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient.
Thou art Satchidananda (Existence-Consciousness-Bliss Absolute).
Thou art the Indweller of all beings.
Grant us an understanding heart,
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.
