ESSENCE OF THE GITA

Swami Sivananda

This Samsara is the Asvattha tree with roots above and branches below; the leaves of the tree are hymns; the objects of the senses are its body. It is nourished by the qualities, or Gunas. Cut it by the unswerving weapon of non-attachment and attain Immortality. Fearlessness, cleanliness of life, steadfastness in the Yoga practice, charity, self-restraint, sacrifice, study of the scriptures, austerity; straightforwardness, etc., are the divine qualities. Contd….


Be cheerful and happy. Away with depression and gloom. There is nothing more infectious than depression. Drive the feeling of depression and gloom at once by enquiry, singing divine songs,prayers, Pranayama, a brisk walk in the open air, the thinking of the opposite quality viz., the feeling of joy.

- Swami Sivananda
