Quotes and Thoughts of Swami Sivananda

True independence is an inner life free from the sovereignty of anger, lust and greed. Even till the very end of one’s life one should be vigilant against egoism. It raises its head in various forms. Man is often deceived and side-tracked by it.Sin is a mistake committed by the ignorant Jiva during his journey towards Sat-Chit-Ananda abode.All worldly pleasures appear as nectar in the beginning, but become virulent poison in the end.Swami Sivananda
