September 8, 2008 § Leave a comment

Today is the anniversary of Swami Sivananda’s birthday.

Om Namo Bhagavate Sivanandaya.

Here is a quote from Swami Sivananda on how to live the Divine Life:

To practice non-violence, truth and purity is Divine Life.

To be kind, generous, humble, tolerant is Divine Life.

To practice virtues and be righteous is Divine Life.

To serve the poor in selfless, dedicated ways is Divine Life.

To serve the sick with all-is-God attitude is Divine Life.

To be merciful, courageous and devotional is Divine Life.

To sing the Name of God and pray is Divine Life.

To do Japa and meditation is Divine Life.

To be an instrument in the hands of God is Divine Life.

To act rightly and live in God is Divine Life.

To do unconditional self-surrender to God is Divine Life.

To restrain the senses and to have God-communion is Divine Life.

To be one with the Divine Will is Divine Life.

To be a silent witness of the three states (waking, dreaming and deep sleep) is Divine Life.

~ Swami Sivananda
