Four Spiritual Gems by Gurudev Swami Sivananda

Dear All,

Hari Om !

Vairagya (dispassion) is very important in Spiritual path. Gurudev often said that sadhana without the element of vairagya is like a cracked pot which slowly leaks away the effects of sadhana. Personally, I encounter this difficulty, as it is not easy to get concrete Vairagya towards many things, many habits which formed grooves in our mind.

The Four Spiritual Gems, that are outlined by Swamiji will really motivate us in developing both vairagya and devotion to Lord.

Four Spiritual Gems:

1. Remember the pains of Samsara
2. Remember Death
3. Remember the Saints
4. Remember God

(1) and (2) will produce Vairagya.
(3) will bring inspiration.
(4) will cause attainment of God-Consciousness.

Let us all benefit by remembering these four points.

Yours, In Service of the Lord and Gurudev,
Aparna Hari
