Sivanandaji ever be upon the departed spirit of my dearly beloved and revered
Gurubhai Pujya Sri Swami Pavitrananda Saraswatiji Maharaj. I offer my silent
homage to our beloved Swamiji who has attained eternal rest in the Lord, who

directing in his mind and heart in devotion to Lord Himself. Most blessed is he
among men whose departure has been so divine.

great Soul, a real Punyatma whose life has been a saga of deepest
devotion to his Guru, Supreme dedication to Guruseva and ceaseless
endeavour to spread His Divine Life teaching everywhere. Late Swamiji was one of
the torchbearers in carrying forward Gurudev’s spiritual work into remote

emulate late Swamiji’s Gurubhakti, Sevabhav and enthusiasm for
spiritual Jnanayajna. Make service to humanity and God Realization your
two ideals for your life. Base your life firmly upon the principles of Truth,
Purity and Compassion towards all creatures. Live your entire life as a
spiritual process of Sadhana for God-Realisation. Feel all your thoughts,
speech and action with a divine quality. Live a divine Life, God Bless you all.
