The Three Things

Dear All,

Hari Om !

The Sivananda Daily Reading today is very inspiring and wonderful. Many times Gurudev have responded and answered our questions through the Daily Readings.

THE THREE THINGS by Swami Sivananda

Eat three things; wear three things; practise three things: Ahimsa, Satyam and Brahmacharya. Remember three things: death, afflictions of the world and God. Renounce three things: egoism, desire and attachment. Cultivate three things: humility, fearlessness and love. Eradicate three things: lust, anger and greed.

Friends! Here are some triads for your daily spiritual practices. Three things to love: desire for liberation, company of the wise and selfless service; three things to despise: miserliness, cruelty and petty-mindedness; three things to admire: generosity, courage and nobility; three things to respect: Guru, renunciation and discrimination. Three things to control: tongue, temper and tossing of mind.

Yours, In Service of the Lord and Gurudev,
Aparna Hari
