“No one reached the peak in Dasya Bhava like Sri Hanuman. He was a
rare jewel among devotees, the supreme head among Pundits, the
king among celibates and the commander among heroes and

Q & A on Spiritual Life & Sadhana from “May I Answer That?”- by
Holy Master Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj.
Why has God created the world?
Ask God why He has created this world! Attain wisdom of the Self.
Then you will know why God created the world. You cannot
understand it with your intellect. You can understand it only with
For the sake of sport, God created the world. Lokavattu Lila
Kaivalyam. Creation of the world has a purpose. Just as we cannot
have a sun without rays, similarly, we cannot have God without the
world process. The world is like His rays. It is His Svabhava,
nature. Just as a juggler produces something and makes it
disappear, so also, God produces this world and makes it
disappear. God is omnipotent. To ask why He created the world is
an Ati-prasna, a transcendental question. We will be only wasting
time by discussing it. Before asking about the world, ask about
yourself. Know who you are. Then you will know everything.
An Incidence From H. H. Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj's Life
Swamiji's 'Light Fountain' - a biographical piece on his Master
which will for ever be read by all inquisitive readers as an
incomparable spiritual document-bears thrilling witness to his
deep appreciation of Gurudev. It is a masterful biographical
writing distinguished by a purity of style, musical organisation,
and profound knowledge of its subject. The entirely unobtrusive
manner of its presentation makes the reader always encounter in
the pages Sivananda and not the author. Gurudev himself was so
much impressed by the spiritual fervour and wisdom contained in
the book that he remarked, "Sivananda will pass away but 'Light
Fountain' will live". While releasing the book in 1944 Swamiji had
chosen to keep the authorship concealed under the pseudonym,
Prism. Chidananda is, indeed, the holy prism through which Gurudev
had chosen to reveal his multicoloured personality for the benefit
of the world.
