11. HUMILITY & 12. TENACITY

Swami Sivananda

HUMILITY – Respect everybody. Bow with folded palms before everybody. Do not talk in a loud voice in the presence of elders and venerable persons. Look at the toes while you walk. See the Lord in all, and feel that you are His servant and so the servant of all. Consider none as inferior to you. TENACITY – This is the natural friend of fixity. Once you have fixed your aim and chosen your path, stick to it. Do not waver. Be steadfast. Never compromise on your fundamental principles. Have the mental attitude, "I may give up my life; but I will not swerve from the Path, I will not break my vows."


Shanti(peace), Santosha(contentment), Satsanga(company with the holy peoples) and Vichara(enquiry into the nature of the Self) are the four sentinels who guard the domain of Moksha.
