“A real Sannyasin is the only mighty potentate on this earth. He never takes anything, always giving. It was Sannyasins only who did glorious, sublime work in the past. It is Sannyasins only who can work wonders in the present and in the future also. One real Sannyasin can change the destiny of the whole world!” These are the profound words of our Divine Master, Sri Swami Sivananda, extracted from an article in the book, Bliss Divine on the auspicious occasion of Pujya Swami Sahajananda’s 61st Sannyas Anniversary. The event was celebrated on Monday, 10 April 2017 at Sivanandashram, Reservoir Hills.

Sri Hanuman was born of Anjani from Pavana, the wind god. Hanuman's body was hard as a stone. So Anjani named him Vajranga. He is also known by the names "Mahabir" or mightiest hero, and Maruti.
Sri Rama Navami Message by Sri Swami Sivananda
Blessed Immortal Self,
It gives me great pleasure to send you this short message on the celebration of the Ramanavami day.
Deep and unfathomable like the ocean, firm and steadfast like the Himalayas, valiant like Vishnu, he was the joy of Kaushalya. Though fierce like fire on the battle-field, he was calm like the cool breeze of the Mandara Hills, patient- like Mother Earth, bounteous like Kubera the God of Wealth, and righteous like Dharma, the Lord of Justice himself. In pain or grief of his people, his heart swiftly sympathised with the sufferer. In the festive scenes which held them in joy, he, like a father shared their joy. By his honour and heroism, as well as by his gentleness and love for his subjects, he endeared himself to the heart of his people.
