Message of Peace

Swami Sivananda Saraswati

Salutations to the Supreme Lord of the Universe!
The peace that passeth all understanding has been the axis around which Indian culture has revolved in all its aspects.
Peace is a divine attribute. It is a quality of the Soul. It fills the pure heart. Peace, God, Atma, Freedom, Moksha – are synonymous terms. Realize Peace through meditation and devotion, japa and prayers.
Peace is not an accumulation of wealth. Peace is not an external object. Peace is in the person who has given up desires, longings for the objects of the world.
Cultivate peace in the garden of your heart by removing the weeds of lust, hatred, greed, selfishness and jealousy. Calm the mind. Be still. Be in tune with the Divine Will.
Live according to the Divine Law. Be good. Do good to others. Make others happy. See God in all. You will have infinite Peace. Develop cosmic love, kindness and sympathy.
Individual Peace paves the way for World Peace. The attainment of inner calm is the greatest work you can do for humanity.
May the Lord shower His choicest blessings on you all!
May God fill your hearts with Great Peace.
With regards, prem and om,
