Here is a splendid opportunity for you : you can spend your life in retirement and engage yourself in whole-time Divine Contemplation, away from the din and bustle of the earth-earthy life, away from the cares and anxieties of family and friends, in the City of Saints, Rishikesh, on the banks of the Ganges, at Sivanandashram, in the personal, saintly company of Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj.

Here is a chance for you to build a Kutir (several Sadhaks have already built them) where you may spend your holidays before retirement. Approximate cost Rs. 2000 for a single Kutir. Welcome to the Self-realisation Colony, at Sivananda Nagar, in the sylvan valley of the Himalayan Majesty ! ,

It is the Yagna of this Yuga. That is the Mission with which great saints like H. H. Sri Swami Sivananda take birth in this world. In order that the soul of man might be awakened to its own pristine glory, and the heart of man might be filled with love of God and fellowmen, it is necessary to shine before his eyes the torch of our ancient spiritual wisdom, re-interpreted in a language he can understand. That is what Sri Swami Sivananda has been doing all these thirty years cf his glorious dedicated life. Dissemination of spiritual knowledge is the magic wand with which he has awakened thousands of souls and kindled love in their hearts.
Besides writing over 200 books on a variety of subjects, Sri Swamiji has been distributing free his books, pamphlets and leaflets on worldwide scale. You, too, can take your share of this glorious service —dissemination of spiritual knowledge. Write to:

Born on the banks of the Dakshini Ganga at Pattamadai, on the 8th September 1887, Swami Sivananda grew up as a good student and passed the M.B., B.S. examination. Inspired by a spirit to serve others he proceeded to the Straits Settlements and Malaya States in 1913, and his ability soon secured for him the post of Doctor-in-charge of a district hospital. Ten years later he returned to India and proceeded straight to Banaras. Ten years of service to the suffering was followed by ten years of renunciation and wandering in the Himalayas. Twelve years later, in 1936, the Divine Life Society was established by him with the noble object of teaching people how to live the life divine while engaged in one's daily vocations.
The Divine Life Society caters for the spiritual requirements of men of every religion and is singularly universal in its teachings. To Swamiji there is but one God. His Yoga practice, his erudite expounding of the religions and his devout and enchanting Kirtans are at once the solace of all types of human thinkers. There is nothing exclusively Hindu or Mohammadan, Christian or Buddha, Zoroastrian or Jain in the teachings of the Swami. His may be said to be the epitome of all religious beliefs and creeds.
Swami Sivananda is a dynamic sage, whose personality radiates service and love, health and knowledge, sacrifice and-devotion. He occupies today a unique place in the religious firmament of India. May it be the Swami's to lighten our ascent to the religious firmament and to guide all true seekers after truth, to lead all active workers and enthuse all devotees of the Lord. Long live Swami Sivananda.—Rai Saheb Sri A. B. N. Sinha. Patna.
