This is a collection of twenty-five discourses and messages about the great-Guru Swami Sivananda by his great Sishya Swami Chidananda for the benefit of all disciples, devotees and seekers of Truth.
They make us again realise the unique personality and teachings of Gurudev and the dedicated discipleship of Swami Chidananda. They immediately inspire the reader to follow in their footsteps and lead the divine life.
These are a number of talks and messages on Gurudev Swami Sivananda by Swami Chidananda. The first twelve were given during Gurudev’s lifetime and the following 13 after his Mahasamadhi.
They show Swami Chidananda’s exemplary, totally dedicated discipleship during 65 years and his untiring zeal and conviction of spreading his Master’s teachings and the message of Divine Life during his Presidency of 45 years. Whatever he elaborates on and propagates in his discourses, that Swamiji himself was the best example of.
We are sure that all who read this book will be inspired to follow more ardently in Gurudev’s and Swami Chidananda’s footsteps and lead the Divine Life to the best of their abilities.
