SWAMI SIVANANDA’S TEACHINGS
🔔 SPIRITUAL DON’TS FOR SUCCESS IN LIFE AND GOD REALIZATION 🔔
⚜Don’ts in DISCIPLINE⚜
Don’t exert too much.
Do not reduce your diet too much. It will produce weakness and thus interfere with your meditation.
🌺Too much of laughter is another channel through which energy is wasted. A man who always bursts into laughter cannot influence people. Serenity, seriousness and magnanimity (Gambhirya) are necessary if you want to impress and influence people.
🌼Too much walking must be avoided. It exhausts any man. It renders him unfit for active work.
🌺Too much talking indicates that the man is Rajasic. Talking makes the mind out-going.
🌼. Too much of sleep makes a man dull and lethargic. what is required is quality of sleep. Even if you have a sound dreamless sleep for one or two hours, you will be perfectly refreshed. There is no use of rolling in the bed for hours together. Too much sleep causes premature decay and weakness in brain power.
🌺Thinking too much is a hindrance in the execution by the will. It brings confusion and procrastination. There is slackening of the force of the will. The opportunity will slip away
🌼Too much study of religious books is also an impure Vasana. This is Sastra Vasana. Certainly, Atman or God can hardly be found in books.
