). The fragrance, and the beauty and the colour, belong to Thee. It is Thine own unsurpassable love for Thy children that makes Thee accept this,too.It was said of Lord Sri Krishna that everything about Him was sweet. It is true of BhagavanSivananda, today. Dr. Kuppuswamy transformed himself into Swami Sivananda: and the austere,sternandhardtaskmasterSwamiSivanandahassomehowmysteriouslyvanished—whenandhow,no one knows. The Siva

is a kind of all-round meditation on the various phases of the personalityandmessageofthegreatsaintandsage,HisHolinessSriSwamiSivanadajiMaharaj,asvisualised by the author, Swami Venkatesananda, who was a direct disciple of the Master. This is averitablepen-pictureofthemanysideswhichthemajesticheroofthisbooktouchedinhispersonallife and teachings.This little, interesting book was printed three times already, in the years 1957, 1971 and1978. But the printed copies were exhausted quickly, since devotees everywhere began to demandcopies for their daily religious sessions. The impact of this beautiful presentation seems to have beensuchonthemindsofloversofGodandreligiousmen,thatwereceivedapressingrequestfromSri D.S. Kulkarni, a retired teacher, from Hubli, Karnataka, that this book be made available to the public as early as possible, and with this request he sent his devout love-offering by means of afinancial contribution towards its publication. This Institution is grateful to this ardent well-wisher of this Ashram and devotee of Sri Gurudev Swami Sivananda, for his being instrumental in thecoming out of this book now in its Fourth Edition, for the benefit of everyone. —THE DIVINE LIFE SOCIETYShivanandanagar,7th March, 1985.
