SIVA’S FINAL TEACHING
June 19, 2013 Comments Off on SIVA’S FINAL TEACHING
Purify your heart through selfless service,
Be devoted to the Lord and obtain his grace,
Through japa (repetition of God’s name), kirtan (chanting), prayer and self-surrender.
Practise asanas (postures), pranayama (yoga breathing), etc.
Abandon egoism, desire, anger and greed.
Control all the senses.
Cultivate discrimination and dispassion.
Practise the four means.
Hear the srutis (scriptures).
Reflect and meditate ceaselessly.
You will attain Self-realisation.
– Swami Sivananda
