Words of Inspiration – Swami Sivananda

Renunciation is not running away to the caves of the Himalayas. Only aspirants with Para-Vairagya are fit to do that; on the part of others it is only cowardice. Stand up, bold aspirants, and renounce egoism. Wherever you run, it will run with you. You will have to annihilate it wherever you are. Renounce this ego by means of self-surrender to the Lord, self-sacrificing service to humanity, self-purification through Japa, Kirtan and Dhyana, self-denial through Vedantic Nididhyasana and attain Self-realisation. Then you will enjoy perennial peace, immortality and eternal bliss.
Steady the mind. Fix it on the Lord. Plod on patiently like the farmer at his plough. Be preserving. This is real Sadhana. Be regular in your Sadhana. This will give you freedom, bliss, peace and immortality.
