Remembering Sanyasa Diksha day of  Holy Master Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj.
(June 1, 2008) 

"The power that sprang out of his renunciation has outspread into the world of today, reached, into all points of the compass and, penetrating all lands and homes, has brought new life, hope, solace, light, strength, joy and inspiration to literally countless millions of souls throughout the modern world."
..."His Sannyasa has transformed itself into a spiritual force that holds within itself the hope and promise of the future world-welfare and world-order, based upon a divine life of love, compassion, virtue and goodness. This solitary act of his Sannyasa has become a swelling flood of self-giving that marks the stream of this saint’s dedicated life through the better part of the past half century. By this, he proclaims the grand idea that renunciation is not to be a single act at some momentous occasion but that it should characterize your entire life and mark every thought, word and act throughout your life."..... Swami Chidananda << More>>.
Early Morning Meditation talks from "Ponder These Truths"  by
 Sri Swami Chidananda

True Dispassion
" tyaga (renunciation), in vairagya (dispassion) there should be tyaga of the false notion of the reality of the ego-sense. There should also be anasakti (non-attachment) towards the ego-sense itself. All other anasaktis become fruitful if this anasakti is there—non-attachment to one’s own ego. All other tyaga will yield fruit and become effective in supporting true jnana and true bhakti if there is this anasakti towards this false ego, which is the most persistent, the closest and therefore the least recognised. If an object is at a distance you can see it, but if something is in your eye you require the help of someone else to see it and remove it for you.

Even so, the ego being the closest and the most difficult to perceive and remove, they conceived of this super method of giving this task to the sad-guru, putting it in his hands, letting him do it: “I shall reduce myself to a zero and humble myself at his feet. What I cannot do, he can.” And the second way is to reduce yourself to a zero and humble yourself at the Feet of God and the Divine Mother and say: “I cannot do it; You please do it for me O Lord, O Divine Mother.” This is the one and the only way."....

"Sanyasa is not a thing to be received from or given to anybody. It is a dedication of our entire being to the Lord and His Service. It is a spontaneous wave of aspiration rising from within your own heart."
-Papa Ramdas

"The essential thing is renunciation. Without renunciation none can pour out his whole heart in working for others. The man of renunciation sees all with an equal eye and devotes himself to the service of all."

You must literally live renunciation. This is the way of all attainment. This is the key to true and lasting happiness and peace. This is the secret of world-welfare and universal happiness. In renunciation lies the end of all strife and hatred. In renunciation lies the source of true peace and progress. Renunciation is the path that leads to friendliness, co-operation and unity. Renounce selfishness, greed, hatred and egoism. Embrace love, humility, contentment and charity.
- Swami Chidananda
