                            These guidelines have the power to benefit  

                                   physically, mentally and spiritually.

1. Have a simple and unassuming manner of life.

2. Live not to eat, but eat to live.

3. Bear no envy. Commit no slander. Speak no falsehood. Practice no deceit.   Harbor no malice. You will be ever joyful, happy and peaceful.

4. Righteousness is the rule of life. Lead a virtuous life. Strictly adhere to Dharma. Human life is not human without virtues. Study the lives of saints and draw inspiration from them.

5. Cultivate a melting heart, the giving hand, the kindly speech, the life of service, equal vision, and impartial attitude. Your life will, indeed, be blessed.

6. Lead a regulated life. Take hold of each day as if it were the last day, and utilize every second in prayer, meditation and service. Let your life become a continuous sacrifice to God.

7. Live in the present. Forget the past. Give up hopes of the future.

8. Understand well the meaning of life, and then start the quest.

9. Life is thy greatest gift. Utilize every second profitably.

10. Success often comes to those who dare and act. It seldom comes to the timid.

                                        May you all attain success in life!

                                                  – Swami Sivananda

    Hello — Is this the Sw. Shivananda who was the disciple of Sri Ramakrishna? Thank you for bringing present these powerful words to live by.

  2. Yes! Very good! My first teacher, a Yogi from Chennai (at that time Madras) Sri Rajagopalan, studied with Sivananda – He is wonderful!
