When you live in the world you have to adjust to circumstances. It cannot affect the purity of the mind. True renunciation is only a mental state. Train the mind to do japa constantly. Swami Sivananda continues with more advice for this aspirant in this brief but very informative recording.
Immortal Self! God is the creator and indweller of your heart. He is the dispenser of karma and of the results of your actions. Behold God in all objects. God is everything – learn how you can live in God, realize this, and be free – lecture by Swami Sivananda.
Wisdom includes knowledge and practical experience and goes beyond both. What is the highest wisdom? How can you reach the highest wisdom? How to become a wise person? What are the characteristics of a wise person? These are some of the themes that Swami Atmaswarupananda covers in this early morning talk at Sivananda Ashram Rishikesh. http://www.sivanandaonline.orghttp://my.yoga-vidya.org
In this very clear recording about Karma Yoga, the yoga of action or selfless service, Swami Sivananda tells us that Karma Yoga is selfless service to humanity. Your duty is to work but not to expect the fruits thereof. This is the central teaching of the Bhagavad Gita. God is the Inner Ruler.

Swami Atmaswarupananda from Sivananda Ashram Rishikesh talks about the foundation of Swami Sivananda’s teachings: God alone is. Swami Sivananda taught differently to different disciples. Swami Sivananda’s disciples have different characters and follow different Sadhanas. But there is something in common: The deep conviction that God alone is. The heart of Gurudev’s teaching is the same everywhere: God alone is without a second.
