In the book, Yoga Lessons for Children, our Divine Master, Sri Swami Sivananda states, "The Vedas describe Mother Lakshmi as the Goddess of riches. God manifests in the form of wealth. There is material as well as spiritual wealth. Mother Lakshmi provides us with both, but some think of Her as a symbol of material wealth only. It is true that She will grant us this if we desire. But we should pray to Her for something lasting, something more precious and worthwhile – it is spiritual wealth of God. Mother Lakshmi also gives joy. She makes life on earth bearable. Without Her, life on earth would be a journey of pain and suffering.

The 59th Mahasamadhi Anniversary of our Divine Master, Sri Swami Sivananda was observed on Thursday, 14 July 2022. On this sacred day,we paid tribute to a spiritual giant of the 20th century, who to a large extent, changed the course of spiritual history. A man amongst men and a jewel amongst saints, Sri Swami Sivananda touched millions of lives across the world. Sri Swami Sivananda, the saint of Rishikesh, India, the apostle of compassion, peace and human values, was a champion of the disadvantaged, oppressed, down-trodden and forlorn. The Master set the world ablaze with the practical unfoldment of his eloquent creed: “To be a cosmic friend and cosmic benefactor, to be a friend of the poor, forlorn, helpless and the fallen, is my creed. It is my sacred creed to serve the sick persons, to nurse them with care, sympathy and love, to cheer the depressed, to infuse power and joy in all, to feel oneness with each and every creature, and to treat all with equal vision”.

Guru Purnima, the most auspicious day in the calendar of spiritual seekers, is celebrated the world over to worship and offer gratitude and appreciation to the Spiritual Masters for their guidance, spiritual wisdom and enlightenment. It is the day when seekers make fresh spiritual resolves. This day also marks the Birth Anniversary of the great sage, Sri Vyasa. We pay obeisance to the great sage for his tremendous service to humanity: he performed the awesome task of editing the four Vedas and writing the eighteen Puranas, the Mahabharata and the Srimad Bhagavatam. His legacy is priceless. On Guru Purnima Day, we pay obeisance also to all the Divine Incarnations, Brahma Vidya Gurus and Vedic Rishis, saints and sages for their inestimable contribution to the peace, harmony and spiritual evolution of the planet.
